Gucci Cocktail Party For Ffawn

WOW.

This has to be the best Serena Williams has looked in a long while. I love the hair and make-up especially.

The tennis ace wore a one shoulder mini Gucci Fall 2009 dress covered in green and black crystals, with a striped pattern going across it.

She looks sexy, confident and power.

I hope I can squeeze this onto the BDOTW poll.

Unfortunately I think Alicia Keys’ black sleeveless zip Gucci Resort 2010 dress fails to flatter.

The dress looks much better with the belt, the dress is otherwise too plain without it, even with the ridiculous spikey thing on her wrist.

I saw Estelle many times around New York and each time she wore black.

Estelle use to wow us with daring designs and bold colours.

Has her stateside move muted her style?

Her Gucci Fall 2009 ensemble includes a black crystals sleeveless top which she belted with black pants.

Mary J. Blige keeps her look very simple wearing a no-frills black v-neck jersey dress with flute sleeve and black patent belt.

She completes the look with black patent booties and a black python envelope clutch.

Only Serena shines for me at this event.

17.07.09 Premiere

“The Ugly Truth” LA Premiere

If I was to write a list of red carpet rules one of them would be to keep the neck bare when wearing a strapless dress, then I see Katherine Heigl’s stunning chunky David Yurman pearls with her Lanvin Fall 2009 beige tulle strapless dress and I instantly ditch the rules.

That is because the yellow and white pearls really add some pizazz to her look and as a result she glows.

Beige pumps and a classic updo complete this perfect look.

Kate Walsh supported her former colleague wearing a cute sleeveless blazer with matching white shorts by Isabella Oliver.

Gold accessories including Moschino Cheap and Chic metallic gold cut out peep toe wedges, a gold clutch and gold bangles complete this summer fresh look.

OK, I think it’s official I’m in love with Venus Williams’ style at the moment.

She is on fire and I hope she progresses to even better looks in the future.

On this occasion the Wimbledon runner up opted for a coral strapless dress with bejeweled sandals and a lavender stone choker.

As great as Serena Williams looked at the ESPY Awards, she really lets herself down here for wearing this plunging black dress without some support.

No bra, no likey.

Jewel lets her green maxi Temperley London dress with an embroidered neckline do all the talking, as the singer opts for a minimal jewelry.

2009 ESPY Awards Red Carpet

Best Dressed Award
I wasn’t really expecting much from this event to be honest.

That all changed when I saw Venus Williams.  She really wowed me wearing a Mara Hoffman Spring 2009 print silk-chiffon maxi dress, with plunging neckline and tie to the waist.  She accessorized with a silver necklace and a matching ring.

Her hair was swept to one-side to add more elegance to her look.

She looks ace wouldn’t you agree?

Most Consistent Award
I only see Driver Danica Patrick on the red carpet once a year at this event and she always impresses.

Last year she wore a cute Nanette Lepore mini dress, this year she opted for a sexy yet sweetly feminine, Stella McCartney Fall 2009 dress.

The dress has been modified from the runway to be shorter plus her dress has nude panels with a lace overlay.

I love that she kept the rest of her look classic with simple jewelery, complementary two-tone black peep-toe heels and her hair styled into a beautiful updo.

Nice Dress, But I Prefer The Runway Version Award
Demi Moore looks great in her custom-made Zac Posen Resort 2010 cold-shoulder dress, but I LOVED the runway version so part of me feel a bit disappointed even though Mrs Kutcher looks super hot.

Black satin Bally platform peep-toe pumps and gold bracelets completed her look.

Most Improved Award
Serena Williams always goes for an ultra glamorous look which usually fails to work.

On this occasion her teal blue Roberto Cavalli gown is perfect.

The colour is gorgeous and the fit is flattering. For once I don’t notice her muscle, but I do notice her twins.

How does she run around a court for 2 hours? It’s gotta hurt.

De Ja Vu Award
Jaime Pressly wore a very similar Joey Tierney Couture LBD, and styled her hair in almost the same way when she attended the “I Love You, Man” LA premiere.

When she looks this drop dead gorgeous why not recreate the magic I guess.

Her skin is positively glowing.  She’s very much the yummy mummy.

Nice dress, shame about the hair Award
Miranda Kerr wore a fabulous white Calvin Klein haltered gown which looks stunning on her, but the hair doesn’t quite work for me.

I like that she tried something new as her style is usually the same, but I don’t think it suits her.

Worst Make-Up Award
WNBA player Lisa Leslie didn’t look in the mirror before she left the house. I refuse to believe anyone would knowingly leave their home looking this bad and not be aware.

YIKES!!!!

Most Zzzzzz Award
Out of all the Victoria Secret models who walk the red carpet Marisa Miller has to be the most boring, predictable and uninspiring.

Like Amanda Bynes it’s always the same formula.  Tight, short, black or white, Herve Leger or Dolce & Gabbana.

On this occasion she’s wearing a white strapless short Dolce & Gabbana dress, with a jeweled belt from the Spring 2009 collection.

Social Events Of The Week

“It’s On With Alexa Chung” Show, New York

Hayden Panettiere is doing the round promoting her new movie “I Love You, Beth Cooper”.

The actress looked adorable wearing an pink Elizabeth and James minidress with blouson sleeves, whilst accessorizing with black Guissepe Zanotti open-toe booties, and a purple Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

She’s like a breathe of fresh air on a warm sunny day.   I love this look.

Wimbledon Winners Party 2009, London

This has to be one of Serena Williams’ best ever looks.

The Wimbledon champion opted out of wearing something by Ralph Lauren – one of the sponsors – which is usually Venus’ choice when she attends this winners party.

Instead she wore this sexy black tulle D&G gown.

Love the dress, but those pearls a tad much.  The jeweled necklace would have been plenty.

Vitamin Water Event, Sydney

Kristen Davis was in Sydney to support friend Russell James at the opening of his Nudes photography exhibition.

She made sure she was pretty as a picture wearing an eye-popping bright blue strapless dress, which she teamed with a black tiered necklace, a sparkly mini clutch and black Christian Louboutin heels.

Again the necklace is too much for me.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Hayden Panettiere showed off her sexy side on Monday wearing a Caroline Seikaly revealing sheer lace dress with a black opaque underlay – thankfully – in all the right places.

With her sexy tousled updo she teamed her daring dress with black Stuart Weitzman gladiator sandals and chunky House of Lavande rings.

I’m loving the first look more to this racy lacy look.

Who Wore Ralph Lauren Better? Serena Williams or Louise Roe

Ditching tennis whites in favour of a far more glamorous look, Serena Williams attended the “Ralph Lauren/Sony Ericsson pre-Wimbledon Party” hosted by Richard Branson last week.

The star wore dazzling gold sequined harem trousers with a white tank from Ralph Lauren’s Spring 2009 collection, teamed with gold peep-toes and complementary gold jewelery.

Fashion presenter and journalist Louise Roe arrived at the “Leap Anywhere” Launch Party in London last week wearing the same Ralph Lauren harem pants with a black silk top, black gladiators and a leather jacket.

I much preferred the way Louise wore the pants lower on her hips – as they were intended – so she wins for me.

Serena & Venus Williams At The WTA Tour Pre-Wimbledon Party

Wimbledon starts next week, and as much as I love the tournament there’s one thing that’s guaranteed for the next two weeks…rain.

This isn’t such a bag thing as I can blog between rain delays.

Venus and Serena Williams are both in London and tonight they attended a party held at the Kensington Roof Gardens for the Women’s Tennis Association.

Serena wore a crisp white tank top with a pair of Ralph Lauren sequined harem pants from the Spring 2009 collection, with the same runway low slung belt and gold ankle strap heels.

Sister Venus opted for a very elegant dress with a pussy bow collar. Her beige dress is also from the Spring 2009 collection, but was presented as a sleeveless blouse.

Strappy gold heels completed the look and her hair was styled into a classy updo.

This has to be the best I have seen the sisters look in a long while. They both normally over do it and try to look like barbie dolls, but here they both look beautiful and elegant.
