New Yorkers For Children Spring Dinner Dance

Here are the rest of the looks from the New Yorkers For Children Spring Dinner Dance.

Rose McGowan: I love Rose, but I’ve seen this Dolce & Gabbana gown so many times in so many colours that I’m over it, despite it looking awesome on her. Her look is enhanced with a stunning Lorraine Schwartz necklace.

Tinsley Mortimer: I’m not sure what she was thinking, but that’s too much dress for someone so petite. Her modified Christian Dior Fall 2008 dress is overwhelming her.

Who Wore Valentino Better? Jessica Alba or Selita Ebanks

Back in July 2010 Jessica Alba wore this stunning red Valentino Fall 2010 ruffled one-shoulder gown to a grand soirée hosted by Valentino himself in Paris. The event celebrated the opening of the Valentino Archives.

Her hair was styled into an updo with a few pieces framing her face.

A few bracelets and a nude clutch completed the look.

Several months later Selita Ebanks wore the same gown to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in Hollywood with a sleek updo and complementary jewels.

Jessica wins for me. I love the addition of the nude clutch which complements the soft nude ruffles plus I love her more dramatic train.

Who Wore Calvin Klein Better? Claire Danes or Selita Ebanks

Calvin Klein Creative Director Francisco Costa hosted an intimate private dinner for key press and celebrities at the exclusive Restaurant Apicius in Paris during Couture Fashion Week back in July 2009.

Claire Danes looked stunning wearing a Calvin Klein Fall 2009 silver embellished dress with a jagged hem.

The elegant actress didn’t over accessorize her dazzling dress as she just added nude strappy sandals and carried a white clutch.

Selita Ebanks wore the same dress grand opening of Marquee Nightclub at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas last week.

She looked amazing from the ankles up.

What possessed her to wear black pumps with this dress will forever remain a mystery to me.

Claire wins by a very long mile.

Who Wore Victoria Beckham Collection Better? Taraji P. Henson, Carrie Preston or Selita Ebanks

There are two versions of Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2010 folded corset dress.

The commercial version which has been worn by Taraji P. Henson and Carrie Preston, plus the runway version which was worn by Selita Ebanks.

Taraji wore her version to the “Date Night” New York premiere back in April.

Her dress was accessorized with a gold cuff and matching heels.

Carrie walked the red carpet for the “True Blood” Season 3 Premiere in LA recently wearing the same dress earlier this month.

She opted for bold red accessories including Rene Caovilla heels.

A few days later, model Selita Ebanks arrived at the “Absolut Vodka Brooklyn Party” in New York wearing her dress with Christian Louboutin Tashaf heels.

Selita wins as the commercial version of this dress is not as appealing on the red carpet, although Carrie was a close second as I loved her accessories.

Samsungs Hope for Children Benefit – Selita Ebanks In BCBG Max Azria

Selita Ebanks also attended “Samsungs Hope for Children Benefit” hosted by Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony in New York last night.

She opted for a colourful BCBG Max Azria one-shoulder dress which had better placement on the runway.

I don’t like the cross over one-shoulder on Selita’s dress which exposes a mesh detail.

As eye-catching as her dress is, it’s impossible to focus on anything other than her Roger Vivier heels.

The purple sandals have the signature buckle detail plus they are festooned with purple feathers.
