Social Events Of The Week

Out & About in Double Bay, Sydney

Miranda Kerr was out shopping wearing an Isabel Marant Fall 2009 ensemble.

She combined a leopard print skirt, a boyfriend blazer and a grey sweater to achieve her off-duty look.

The manly boots are not what I would have worn, as they make her feet look really long.

It’s Y!ou Yahoo! Yodel Competition, New York

LeAnn Rimes is the 6th or 7th celebrity to have worn this Kimberly Ovitz Jacob jersey mini dress, but she’s the only one to have belted the dress.

It’s now the most worn dress on the red carpet, which really surprises me as I much preferred the Kimberly Ovitz Martin jersey cutout dress which was also favoured by AnnaLynne McCord and Olivia Wilde.

Philippe West Hollywood Opening Celebration, LA

Serena Williams wore navy patent heels and sheer shimmering tights with her 3.1 Phillip Lim beaded silk dress.

I don’t hate this look, but I’m sure some might argue her legs are too muscular for this dress but I would disagree.

My biggest problem is the champagne clutch.

Hammerstein Ballroom, New York

Kylie Minogue was greeted by her fans outside New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom were she has been performing.

The petite pop princess might have had a hectic schedule, but she wasn’t showing any signs of fatigue as she look beautiful wearing a YSL Fall 2009 grey jumpsuit, paired with a lace bandeau.

After the show she looked even better wearing a high-neck leather dress, paired with the same YSL Divine boots we’ve seen on Diane Kruger.

Ritz Carlton Hotel, New York

Jessica Simpson was spotted leaving her hotel in New York en route to the “FFANY Shoes On Sale” wearing a black belted coat from Stella McCartney’s Resort 2010 collection.

16th Annual QVC Presents FFANY Shoes On Sale, New York


When Jessica arrived at the event she whipped off her Stella McCartney coat to reveal a black and silver paillette covered Dolce & Gabbana LBD paired with a wrap-around black belt plus Debista 2 Pumps from her own footwear line.

Her hair was swept up into a messy up ‘do, whilst her eyes were sultry and smoky.

National Museum Of The American Latino Commission Press Conference, Washington

Eva Longoria wore a red Diane von Furstenberg sheath dress paired with nude pumps.

I would’ve never considered red and nude together, but it’s a very interesting colour combination.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Sienna Miller wore Pierre Hardy suede pumps paired a black harem pant jumpsuit with a bejeweled shrug.

I’m not particularly crazy about the top layered part of the jumpsuit, but she looks beautiful as always.

Rose McGowan matched her bright red lips with her red structured bow accented top and a black mini skirt.

Her vintage Bill Blass ensemble certainly has the wow factor.

2009 Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Annual Installation Luncheon

The “Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Annual Installation Luncheon” is the event so show-off a cute cocktail dress.

This is not the right occasion for a full-length gown, which is why Emmy Rossum wore a stunning mini white version of the silvery Carolina Herrera Resort 2010 gown presented on the runway.

Talk about a knock-out. Emmy just gets better and better for me. I barely remember the girl that used to dress like she was going to the prom for every event.

She looks sexy, confident and for some reason taller. But I just guess that because she’s showing off her toned legs and wearing nude Jimmy Choo ‘Seattle’ platforms.

Evan Rachel Wood posed on the red carpet wearing a red, black and white dot printed halter dress, with a black belt to give it some shape.

The star wore the same Jimmy Choo ‘Gesture’ platforms as Britney Spears at the Teen Choice Awards, whilst carrying a black clutch.

Her flame red hair was swept back into a classic updo.

Rose McGowan opted for a white jersey cap sleeve Balenciaga Resort 2009 dress.

The fitted dress is printed with rows of tiny black dots, and is gathered on the hip and bodice giving Rose’s curves even more definition.

She paired her dress with a dazzling embellished clutch and tan pumps.

Jordana Brewster goes back to her cute ways after a sexier look at the Teen Choice Awards.

The actress who wears her hair in a ponytail 90% of the time she steps on the red carpet, wore a Naeem Khan Resort 2009 ensemble consisting of a navy cashmere scoop neck tank with jeweled edging around the neckline, paired with a navy bell-shaped paillette embroidered skirt with a black satin waistband.

Black accessories complete the look.

Carla Gugino wore a satin black jersey wrap Reem Acra dress with a jeweled detail on the hip.

We recently saw Katherine Heigl wear the electric blue runway version on Letterman.

Sergio Rossi T-bar sandals and a black clutch complete the look.

Kerry Washington never lets me down on the red carpet.

I adore her in this girlie pink Camilla & Marc halter dress, which she teams matching box clutch and Miu Miu snakeskin pumps.

Make-up, hair, everything is flawless.  *sighs*

Eva Longoria also wore Reem Acra. Her black dress was covered with rosette details embroidered onto the bodice.

It’s a nice dress, but I would have loved to see her wear something more colourful.

Trib Two’s are standard.

‘Burberry Day’

Yesterday was deemed Burberry Day, and many stars came out to celebrate.

Alexa Chung and Hilary Rhoda provided the nights entertainment, by both showing up in the same baby blue lace dress, which they both wore with a belt.

Ouch. That’s gotta be embarrassing, especially for Chung, who’s trying to make a name for herself in the US.

Hilary wore Manolo Blahnik Pepe sandals with her dress, whilst Alexa wore a blazer from the Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2009 collection, to try to cover her shame, with platform boots from the Burberry Fall 2009 collection.

Blake Lively wore a Burberry Prorsum Spring 2009 boyfriend jacket, which reached the hem of her mini skirt.

You’ll be happy to see that the twins aren’t on full display on this occasion.

This is a cute, non-fussy laid back look for Blake.  I really like it.

When you are the House model, you can have a dress made especially for you, and that’s exactly what happen for Lily Donaldson.

The presented white chiffon Burberry Prorsum Fall 2009 knee-length dress, was considerably shorten for Lily, to show off her long legs, and suit her sassy style.

Like Alexa, she wore the Burberry Fall 2009 black suede booties.

Leigh Lezark looked stunning teaming a pleated eggplant Burberry Prorsum Fall 2008 dress, with a grey clutch, black pointy heels, and a smouldering stare.

Claire Danes oozed glamorous chic, wearing a draped dove grey Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2009 bubble hem dress, accented with a wide black belt, and T-bar Burberry sandals.

The original runway dress was worn on the red carpet by Agyness Deyn, and made several appearances in fashion magazines across the world, after it’s Spring 2009 presentation, but it’s now been archived.

Molly Sims wore a Burberry Prorsum chocolate brown dress, with the same feather embellishments, which accentuated her blonde hair and tanned skin.

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld flouted the unwritten rule by wearing an Alexander Wang white jersey dress, we have seen 3 times before.

To say I’m over this dress is putting it mildly, and I don’t need to tell you what I think about the heels.

Even though Rose McGowan looked quite out of place at this event, she does pull off her oversized cream suit with great style. Giving us 80s retro chic.

Alexis Colby would be proud.

"Evening Of 20th Century Glamour" Benefiting MOCA


Last night the owner of Decades, Cameron Silver, presented a glorious 20th Century Haute Couture fashion show. The dresses and gowns were from his very own vintage couture boutique.

The stunning Norman Norell amethyst mermaid gown is most definitely my favourite. I can see it on someone tall and elegant like Cate Blanchett or Ellen Pompeo.


Mother-to-be Rachel Griffiths, co-hosted this event with Cameron.

Rachel wore a vintage Sarmi red and black printed dress, with a black bow ribbon detail.

Her look was complete with a black clutch and H Stern jewels.


With her growing baby bump perfectly concealed for this occasion, Nicole Richie wore a floaty, earth-mother-style vintage Zandra Rhodes kaftan, with nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

I love her python gold clutch.


Nicky Hilton’s zip flower dress, reminds me of the Versace Spring 2009 zip hearts dress, but I don’t think it’s from the same collection.

This mini proved that LBDs don’t need to be boring. Nicky completed her look with Jimmy Choo Glenys python gladiators.


Liz Goldwyn poses with Marisa Tomei, who was a busy girl last night.

Liz wore an amazing vintage Balenciaga Haute Couture black dress. The satin bowed dress has a baby-doll silhouette, and beautiful tiered lace skirt.

This is my second favourite look of this event, after Marisa.


With her black sexy Brian Atwood sandals, Zoe Saldana wore a sparkling silver vintage James Galanos mini dress with a black satin trim.

The dress is complimented with a H Stern necklace, and matching diamond earrings.

I would’ve love to have seen the sexy tank dress without the oversized blazer, but as we’re seeing more and more, this is a huge trend on the red carpet at the moment.


Garcelle Beauvais was certainly out to have fun last night, and that showed in this vintage Bill Blass feathered hem confection. The dress was covered in gold sequins, to make her one of the golden girls of the night.

Pink Brian Atwood sandals and H Stern jewels complete the look.


On the Decades website it says this vintage Bill Blass leopard print dress is ‘not for everyone‘, and I would agree.

The only other person I can see wearing this dress with the same fearless attitude as Lisa Rinna is Scary Spice, Melanie B.

It may not be to your taste, but you have to agree that Lisa is working the hell out of this dress.

Kudos to her.


*Jaw drop*

What no black? No Dolce & Gabbana? Someone check Rose McGowan’s pulse.

Rose took a night off wearing her favourite Italian’s designers, to wear this sweeping red vintage Loris Azzaro gown.

Her gown was co-ordinated with her lippie, and her look was complete with all gold accessories.


An angelic Allison Miller wore a strapless vintage Ungaro floral dress, which just goes to prove that the floral trend will never die.


Perrey Reeves dazzles in a vintage Loris Azzaro black dress. The black dress stands out with a diamond sequined detail on the empire waist.

Social Events Of The Week

The School Of American Ballet’s Winter Ball, New York

I was not crazy about the L’Wren Scott Fall 2009 collection. Too many similar dresses in different colours from past seasons put me off.

Thankfully Sarah Jessica Parker picked one of the best pieces. She wore this slinky body-hugging L’Wren Scott Fall 2009 green snake print dress, with a feathered stole, and strappy Christian Louboutin for L’Wren Scott heels from the collection.

Her look was complete with leather driving gloves, and a diamond bracelet.

Love her.

Some might say given their ages, it should be Blake Lively wearing the tight sexy L’Wren Scott dress, and SJP should have worn this black plunging Ralph Lauren gown, but life’s just not that black and white.

“Dragonball Evolution” World Premiere

If feels like forever since we last saw Emmy Rossum on the red carpet, but I am glad she kept up her sex kitten look.

The actress wore a blue strapless mini vintage Emanuel Ungaro Couture dress, that no doubt wowed the crowds.

Her hair was slicked back, so we could see her exquisite earrings.

The outstanding beautiful Jamie Chung wore dress to match, in this floral Jenni Kayne Resort 2009 which Sophia Bush wore to the Teen Choice Awards last year.

“Sunshine Cleaning” LA Premiere

Emily Blunt and Amy Adams play sisters in this movie, but they couldn’t have looked more different at this premiere.

Emily channeled her romantic side, with a pretty strapless Basil Soda dress, with a gorgeous ruffled bodice.

Whilst Amy opted for a slick in a white Burberry trouser suit.

I don’t recall seeing Amy in a suit before, but it’s a look that really works for her.

“Knowing” New York Premiere

I couldn’t find one picture of Rose Byrne’s smiling. Which is surprising, because I would be, if I wore her strapless Christian Cota Fall 2008 feathered dress.

The maroon dress is outstanding, and the details are exquisite.

“33 Variations” Broadway Opening Night, New York

Rose McGowan wears a black satin and tulle strapless dress from her favourite designers Dolce & Gabbana.

Her look is completed with a jeweled belt from their Spring 2009 collection, and a very questionable pair of brown pumps.

Way to spoil a look McGowan.

amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS 2008 – Cannes Film Festival

Finally someone had the cahones to wear the Dolce & Gabbana organza fantasy ball gowns.

I was hoping that Sarah Jessica Parker would have worn the green one to the Sex And The City New York Premiere next week, but I will have to make do with Rose Mcgowan.

She totally rocked this stunning gown. It is just a beautiful as I imagined it off the runway.

French Vogue Editor-in-Chief Carine Roitfeld and her daughter Julia Restoin-Roitfeld leave me breathless in their stunning dresses.

Carine is wearing a red hot one-shouldered animal print Balmain Fall 2008 dress with a slit to the thigh and metallic detailing on the hip.

Julia also wears a dress from the Balmain Fall 2008 collection.

Her dress is equally as sexy as her mothers, but shorter. Her black dress is also one-shouldered, with lace detail at the hem and on the hip. She also wore her beloved black YSL tribute platform sandals, which she also wore yesterday.

Natalie Portman has obviously gotten wind of the fact that many people – not me – were tiring of her wearing Lanvin, so she opted for this beautifully structured Givenchy Spring 2008 Couture dress.

She needs to be careful not to cut herself on those spikes.

Model Natalia Vodianova wore a gold strapless Valentino Spring 2008 Couture gown with a tiered embellished skirt.

Elsa Pataki wears the same Alberta Ferretti dress which Bar Refaeli wore last Wednesday last week.

What a faux pa.

There is no greater ambassador for Marchesa than the designer Georgina Chapman.

Tonight she arrived in this very dramatic silk tulle Marchesa Spring 2008 ball gown with gold embroidered leaf appliqué.

She wore her dress with Christian Louboutin Coxinelle T-bar pumps.

STUNNING.

Petra Nemcova also wore a Marchesa Spring 2008 gown.

Her white strapless gown was much less dramatic, but equally as beautiful.

Couture Queen Dita von Teese is exquisite in this violet Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2007 Couture chiffon military-esqe gown.

The dress has badges of honour as embellishments and beaded epaulets.

Oh so cute.

Margherita Missoni looks stunning with her hair tied back, in this sweetheart neck-lined Missoni Spring 2008 strapless multi-coloured printed gown.

I love this coral coloured strapless Marchesa gown on Mary J. Blige. She is not afraid of colour, and it shows.

The embroidery on the gown is outstanding.

Joely Richardson shows off her lean figure in this stripey Ralph Lauren Spring 2008 gown, with long satin opera gloves for added dramatic effect.

Tamara Mellon usually sticks to black white and navy, so I am glad during Cannes she is wearing more colours.

This strapless bandeau dress is from the Balmain Spring 2008 collection, and is ultra feminine. I really love the wing embroidered detail.

Michelle Yeoh is wearing this very summery Roberto Cavalli Fall 2008 A-line dress with flowered embroidery.

You wouldn’t expect a dress like this to be part of a Fall collection.

Donatella Versace is stunning as ever in her own designs. The colour is gorgeous and dress fits like a glove.

This dress has the same lattice detail we have seen on a few other dresses, during this Film Festival.

Sharon Stone LOVES animal print. On most occasions she looks tacky, but not tonight.

For once she works it well. The jeweled detail on his halter-neck Roberto Cavalli dress is what I think stops it from heading down to tackyville.

Madonna is much less dramatic tonight in her coral satin pussy-bow dress with nude heels.

The pussy-bow dress is a preview of what we will see during on Stella McCartney’s Spring 2009 runway. Yes 4 months from now.

Now that is what you call star power.

Actress Aissa Maiga is wearing this Christian Dior Fall 2007 hip embellished dress, which despite being a few seasons old it looks like it’s from a recent Spring collection in white.

Not many have dared to wear the crazy designs from Marc Jacobs Louis Vuitton Spring 2008 collection.

Milla Jovovich dared to, and looks fabulous.

Coral appears to be the colour of the night.

Diane Kruger is simple elegant in her 20s inspired silver embroidered Chanel Haute Couture gown with her marcel waves.

I love how she is holding her delicate train.

Eva Herzigova opted for a simple black strapless Dolce & Gabbana gown, which covered up a lot more than the Dior dress she wore yesterday.

Very plain for Juliette Lewis.

This is the best dress I have seen Star Jones wear during Cannes. The embroidery and the feathered hem are delightful.
