Runway To Concert – Selena Gomez In Alice + Olivia

Last night Disney star Selena Gomez performed for the first time in the UK to a sell out audience at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire.

Selena looked fabulous wearing an Alice + Olivia taupe sparkly mini dress from the Spring 2010 collection which she paired with black boots.

Her scoop-neck silk dress had beaded stripes, a gathered elastic banding around the waist and a shirt-tail hem.

The crowd were screaming for the star as she began her set with “Kiss And Tell”, followed quickly by “Wipe That Smile”.

Selena told the screaming crowd that the gig was her first ever UK gig and said: “Thank you so much for being a part of that. It means the world to me.”

It was reported that Selena was feeling a bit poorly during this concert, but in her Alice + Olivia dress and with that cute smile she looked fabulous.

2010 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards – Selena Gomez In Christian Cota

Best Dressed Award
Selena Gomez brought out the sun on the orange carpet at the 2010 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards yesterday.

She was my Best Dressed of the night wearing a yellow Christian Cota chiffon dress with gold beaded belt detail from the designers red carpet capsule collection.

I’ve been campaigning long and hard for Selena to wear something more youthful and this dress was the perfect choice for the teen actress.

It’s not a gown, it colourful, youthful and most importantly age appropriate. I’m glad she’s back to having fun with fashion again.

Her look was paired with Sergio Rossi Girandola Bis gladiator sandals, a Lauren Merkin oval gold clutch and Ippolita jewels.

Runway To 41st NAACP Image Awards – Selena Gomez In Georges Hobeika

Simple Yet Stunning Award
On Friday night, stars took to the red carpet for the 41st NAACP Image Awards in LA.

Selena Gomez was one of the many stars who looked gorgeous on the night.

The teen actress looked beautiful wearing a Georges Hobeika Signature Spring 2010 gown.

I normally moan about Selena dressing too old for her age, but on this occasion I love the simplicity of this look.

When teen queen Taylor Swift is dazzling us with embellishments each time she hits the red carpet, Selena opts for a simple ivory strapless gown which has is gathered on the bodice and waist.

She could’ve then opted to over accessorize to make a big statement, but just dark navy earrings and silver clutch complete the look.

I think she looks so good that she even outshines the model.

Social Events Of The Week

Book Signing For “Dita: Stripteese” at Books and Books, Miami

Normally you can’t stop me gushing about how wonderful Dita von Teese looks, but on this occasion me no likey.

I would have preferred the runway black version of Dita’s Jean-Charles de Castelbajac leopard head maxi dress, to the red one she’s wearing.

Four Seasons George V Hotel, Paris

Victoria Beckham was spotted leaving her Paris hotel last night wearing the 5th piece from her 20 piece Spring 2010 collection.

As much as I want to complain about her 3rd black look in a row I love her Victoria Beckham peplum dress – as previously worn by Blake Lively.

Tres chic. Magnifique from the council estate face lift, to her dove grey Trib Two’s.

Four Seasons George V Hotel, Paris

Earlier today the busy fashion designer was again spotted leaving her hotel.  This time she wore a winter white belted Maison Martin Margiela Fall 2009 wool coat with split sleeves.

It appears that all she’s wearing.

With her burgundy Christian Louboutin heels, white coat and Hermes Himalayan Crocodile Birkin she no doubt turned heads.

She on her way back folks *squeals with excitement*

13th Annual Cracked Xmas, LA

Kim Kardashian looked stunning wearing an asymmetrical Tadashi Shoji Spring 2010 dress.

The midnight blue crinkled one shoulder dress with illusion beaded lace insets flattered her beautiful curvy figure.

She paired her dress with Pierre Hardy Saba sandals.

I wasn’t too crazy about those two shades of blonde extensions she placed in her hair though.

The UNICEF Ball, LA

Some of you may think I always pick on Selena Gomez when I say she dresses too mature for her age.

Its only because when I know she can looks totally outstanding like she does here in her hot pink strapless Notte by Marchesa gown.

The eye-popping colour works perfectly well with her dark hair and her milky skin tone.

Sergio Rossi grey peep-toes and a glittering clutch complete the look.

Friends Without Borders First Annual Los Angeles Gala

Anne Hathaway evokes simple elegance wearing a one-sleeved Dior button-down dress with Christian Louboutin heels.

Loving the hair and neutral make-up.

“The Young Victoria” New York Screening

There is something quite garish about Emily Blunt’s red and black Carolina Herrera dress that leaves me cold.

She’s had much better moments.

2009 American Music Awards

Best Dressed Award
It’s been a long while since I was wowed by Fergie, but the singer did just that at the AMAs last night.

The singer walked the red carpet wearing an Armani Privé Fall 2009 black gown with asymmetrical zipper detailing which leads to a dramatic front slit.

The gown sparkles with thousands of black triangular paillettes and is embellished with tiny Swarovski crystals.

Fergie’s gown is slightly modified from the runway as the neckline differs plus Fergie’s gown has straps.

Black Louboutin’s plus a bracelet, armlet and large ring complete this stunning look.

Best Mini Dress Award
Alicia Keys has been a longtime friend of Giorgio Armani, so it’s not a surprise to see the singer wearing one of his stunning designs.

Her modified Giorgio Armani Spring 2010 cobalt blue, jewel encrusted strapless dress had an origami pleated detail on the bust which is more dramatic than the runway version.

I’m loving the aqua marine shades of blue, and the cute Swarovski crystal embellished shorts she wore under her dress.

She picked a fun piece from this collection that truly embodied the spirit of the AMAs.

Most Dramatic Award
Whilst most below were picking out cute nude dresses, Rihanna opted for a dramatic black and white floral laser cut Marchesa Spring 2010 strapless gown.

I loved this gown and it needed a strong personality to pull it off, and Rihanna did in my opinion.

I will guess a lot of you will hate this look, but she gets a thumbs up from me even with those white shoes.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Hair Award
Shakira seems to be developing a healthy obsession with Versace, as this is her 3rd Versace red carpet look in a row.

This sexy Versace Spring 2010 ultra mini yellow dress with cut-out details was perfect for someone with tons of sex appeal like Shakira, but I couldn’t help but feel that they ran out of time to style her hair.

It felt a bit flat against her stunning dress which she paired with the Spring 2010 runway heels.

Looks Way Better On The Red Carpet Award
This Christian Cota Spring 2010 ivory dress could have gone oh so wrong on Kristen Bell had she worn it as it was presented on the runway.

She only pulled up the skirt a few inches and removed the chains, but it makes a world of difference.

Silver Christian Louboutin Archidisco T-strap sandals and a Judith Leiber clutch completed this cute look.

Inspired By Taylor Swift Award
Had Taylor Swift been at this event, this silver Talbot Runhof Spring 2010 mini dress is what we would’ve expected her to wear.

Selena Gomez is sparkling both via her dress and her winning smile wearing her dress with Rock & Republic’s “Romy” strappy sandals embellished with chain detail.

I’m really loving this look as Selena tends to dress way too mature and boring for her young age.

Toned Down Bling Award
Like Taylor, Carrie Underwood used to have an obsession with over embellished dresses.

On this occasion she looked beautiful wearing a metallic one-shouldered Theia dress paired with amazing gold strappy sandals.

Nude Award
From the nude make-up, to the nude dress and the nude Guiseppe Zanotti heels, Demi Lovato needed something to inject a bit of life into her look.

Luckily her Jenny Packham Spring 2010 dress has a jeweled detail on the neckline to stop this look from being so boring and totally washing her out.

Va Va Voom Award
No matter was Sofia Vergara wears she’s going to look sexy.

Even if she was wearing a bin liner.

Whilst most opted for Music Award standard mini dresses, Sofia wowed in a nude Emilio Pucci one-shoulder gown which no doubt would’ve had men going weak at the knees.

Kate Beckinsale Will Be Green With Envy Award
It seems that since Paula Abdul left ‘American Idol’ that she’s had a style transformation.

Gone are those tacky costumey dresses, and in comes this stunning strapless lace mermaid hem gown.

The gown was so grand she need 2 people to help her walk down the red carpet.

I can’t remember the last time she looked this amazing.

Out Of Place Award
I love the delicate lace details on Nicole Kidman’s Balenciaga one-shoulder gown.

The pink and grey colours are gorgeous on her, but she always looks so out of place at these music events.

Worst Dressed Award
As much as I should be loving Kelly Clarkson’s dress based on the amount of embellishments are covering her dress, it fails to flatter her.

Needs To Check Out Style.com Award
Can someone please introduce Leona Lewis to Style.com.

She needs to be made aware that there are other designers out there than just Vivienne Westwood.

Yes she makes great designs, but Leona is only picking pieces that look exactly the same and it’s getting incredibly boring now.

I’ll lose it if I have to refer to those clunky ankle boots and that corset belt, so I’m going to pass.

What’s Happening? Award
Keri Hilson used to be so interesting to watch on the red carpet, but her look has started to become boring and stale.

I hope she gets back to her best soon, because she can do better than a LBD.

2009 Los Premios MTV Latin America Awards

Nelly Furtado was front row at Elie Saab’s recent Spring 2010 presentation in Paris.

She was obviously shopping for this event as she walked the red carpet wearing a beige Elie Saab Spring 2010 studded panel dress.

I loved the dress on the runway, but I would’ve loved Nelly’s look had she worn the runway leather strappy heels.

Alessandra Ambrosio this Balmain Fall 2008 dress was amazing the first time we saw it on Selita Ebanks.

We’ve since seen it on LaToya Luckett and Cheryl Cole.

I for one am so over this dress, that I can’t even appreciate how spectacular you look in it.

Sorry but there are a million and one other mini dresses you could have chosen to wow us in.

Ashley Tisdale seems to have changed direction from the rock chick look she was channeling for a while, back to wearing cute dresses again.

On this red carpet she wore a black twill and tulle Camilla & Marc Lotus dress.

She added a patent belt to add more texture to her cute mini dress, and her leopard print Louboutin heels hinted at her wild side.

Audrina Patridge showed off her tattooed back wearing a black backless mini Oday Shakar sparkling dress which she paired with Lanvin thigh-high boots.

Call me crazy, but I like this look.

Not many could get away with this look.

Many of you say that Taylor Swift always wears embellished dresses on the red carpet, and I would say the same for Miranda Cosgrove.

These shapeless embellished dresses she loves to wear on the red carpet, are all started to feel a bit samey.

Here she wears a Elise Overland dress, paired with Guiseppe Zanotti heels.

Paulina Rubio wore an Ina Soltani LBD accented with rosettes.

The dress is cute, but the black and silver ankle boots just ruin the look for me.

Kelly Rowland’s dress looks like a Bebe knock-off dress.

The only redeeming quality it has is making her legs look long and lean.

Kelly Osbourne was the surprise on this red carpet.

The UK TV star wore a plum mini D&G dress with voluminous skirt and shoulders, paired with a stunning glass Swarovski necklace and a sparkling Swarovski purple crystal clutch.

For some reason Selena Gomez didn’t walk the red carpet, but she was spotted backstage wearing a Paule Ka nude strapless dress with a sheer nude floor-length overlay.
