BlackBerry Torch Launch Party Trend – Black Blazers

Actress Shenae Grimes, Michelle Trachtenberg and Rashida Jones all sported black blazers at the BlackBerry Torch Launch Party in LA last night.

Sheane toughen up her Zara blazer by adding Helmut Lang skinny leather pants, a striped tank, a small crucifix and scuffed boots.

Maybe that black hair is part of the rock chic persona she’s trying to give us.

Michelle may have gone for an all dark look, but her Dannijo statement necklace takes this look from a 4 to a 9 out of 10.

She’s also wearing my favourite blazer, as I love those satin lapels which is from H&M.

J Brand jeans, Stuart Weitzman heels and Giuseppe Zanotti clutch complete the look.

Rashida’s look is all about her accessories. This is where Anna Kendrick failed to add a spark to her look.

Her necklace, clutch, LD Tuttle fringed sandals and gold bracelets perfect her overall look.

She didn’t really need her 3.1 Phillip Lim blazer with her ivory top and petrol green skirt, but this is very much her signature style and she totally makes it work for her.

Tres chic.

2010 CBS Summer Press Tour Party

Representing “90210” Jessica Stroup attended the 2010 CBS Summer Press Tour Party in Beverly Hills this week.

The actress opted for a well worn Chanel Resort 2010 tunic dress.

It has been worn by Isabel Lucas, Anna Mouglalis and Zhou Xun.

I like the dress on Jessica, I even don’t mind the black pumps, but I really dislike the elasticated belt.

I don’t understand why she felt the need to wear it.

Maybe she thought it would look younger, or edgier with the belt, but for me it breaks up the pattern and just looks misplaced.

Shenae Grimes matched the green carpet wearing a emerald green draped dress with an gold belt to give her flowing dress some shape.

Sporting a trendy, messy updo she completed her look with Christian Louboutin ‘Yolanda’ cork peep-toes and a pewter bag.

“90210” actress AnnaLynne McCord would have been the center of attention at this event w ith those long legs on display.

She wore a sleek and sexy Rock & Republic Lucca dress.

Her dress with a deep v-neck dress with eye tape detail on the skirt was paired with Christian Louboutin ‘Fetilo’ mesh peep-toes and a gold triangular shaped clutch.

Ashley Tisdale attended this party to promote her new CBS television series, “Hellcats”.

She was the epitome of summer chic wearing an ivory and metallic Bodyamr dress.

Her dress was worn with my favourite Christian Louboutin Clou Noeud studded heels.

It’s hard to go into detail about how unflattering Jessica Lowndes look is, because I’m dumbfounded by the amount of make-up she has on.

The “90210” wore Rock & Republic Paulina heels.

Mulberry’s LA Pool Party

Emma Hill, Mulberry’s Creative Director, hosted a dinner in LA last night to introduced Hollywood starlets to the Mulberry Fall 2010 collection.

The dinner was followed by a pool party with special guest DJ Alexa Chung.

I’m not Alexa’s biggest fan, but I do love her look.

Whilst Rachel Bilson is wearing her denim shorts with simple tees, Alexa opted for a sexy satin Mulberry shirt with the sleeves rolled up.

It not a combo I would’ve thought of, but it really works for Alexa.

Her look was paired with black strappy sandals and her Mulberry leopard print ‘Alexa’ bag.

Cat Deeley wore a sequined LBD with a leather jacket and Mulberry Maggie booties.

Kate Bosworth let her accessories do the talking by sporting a Mulberry ‘Margret’ leopard print calf skin bag.

Shenae Grimes was my favourite at this event.

She looked cute in a Mulberry chain dress dress from the Fall 2010 collection.

I much prefer the her champagne coloured dress to the runway black.  I love this look so much I’ll ignore her ankle boots.

Molly Sims wore Mulberry Raglan dress which had a wild print all over. The dress paired with muted silver heels.

I love the flare of Jessica Stroup’s Mulberry skirt with crush sequins, but I don’t think she didn’t the skirt much justice with the halter and cardi.

2010 MuchMusic Video Awards

Here are the rest of the looks from the 2010 MuchMusic Video Awards last night.

Actress Nina Dobrev looked gorgeous wearing a navy Tadashi Shoji Spring 2010 beaded strapless mini dress which she paired with Brian Atwood Wagner pumps.

This dress looks 100% better on her as it’s just hanging off the model.

Kristin Cavallari wore a silver metallic mini halter-neck vintage Paco Rabanne dress with black Sergio Rossi heels.

Shenae Grimes channeled her inner wannabee rock chick for the night, opting for a sheer top, a leather pleated mini skirt by Amanda Lew Kee which she paired with a crucifix and an Eddie Bargo cone bracelet.

My favourite here would have to be Shenae for truly getting the spirit of the music awards ceremony by wearing something interesting and different.

A Benefit For St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital – Shenae Grimes In Helmut Lang

“90210” actress Shenae Grimes held a benefit for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital last night in LA.

The host looks gorgeous wearing a chic Helmut Lang lace-sleeve jersey mini-dress.

The asymmetrical dress which she paired with Christian Louboutin cork peep-toes, has one long lace sleeve, a lace insert at front and a ruched body.

Although her dress is sexy, it’s not too sexy for her event.

As much as I like the look, I’m not a fan of necklaces worn with an asymmetrical neckline like this.

“Whip It” LA Premiere

Drew Barrymore has another WWIB? poll coming her way as she wore the same black fitted L’Wren Scott lacquered tweed dress from the Fall 2009 collection, which Nicole Kidman wore just last week to the White Ribbon Alliance dinner.

Ironically they both wore red peep-toes too.

What I didn’t notice about this dress from Nicole, is that it has a sexy red exposed zipper at the back.

Eve broke up the very black red carpet, by wearing a burgundy Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 bustier fitted dress with black peep-toes.

Love the dress and sleek silhouette it gives Eve, but I hate the hair.

I’m not at all surprised that Ellen Page is wearing black, but I am surprised she’s wearing this very sexy Alexander Wang Slim Grommet dress.

When she was promoting “Juno”, it was a struggle to get her into a dress, now she looks grown up, confident and sexy in a dress we’ve seen a few times already this year.

Ellen wore her dress with Rachel Comey Cavat boots.

Serena Williams continues her good form on the red carpet, wearing a gold sequined Gryphon racer back tank top, paired with a black blazer and cropped pants.

Either someone has a new stylist, or someone has learnt that cute frilly dresses don’t suit a masculine frame.

Shenae Grimes opted for a cute ivory and black striped Sass & Bide dress, paired with double ankle strapped heels.

“The September Issue” LA Premiere

After 24 hours without internet access I breathe a sigh of relief as the withdrawal symptoms were seriously beginning to kicking in.

We saw the red carpet for the New York premiere, now the ladies on the west coast put on their best dresses for “The September Issue” LA premiere.

Ginnifer Goodwin was by far my favourite wearing a cute red embellished Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 dress with a tiered skirt and a ribbon tied to the waist.

My only problem are the pointy pumps, the runway heels are divine although I can imagine impossible to walk in.

May I just say WOW.

Shenae Grimes blows me away wearing a stunning sparkling black dress from the Fendi Spring 2009, and I really disliked that collection so this look is even more impressive.

Her hair was swept to the side, her make-up was flawless and she paired her dress with stunning Jimmy Choo Karina studded shoe-boots.

She works this grown up look well without looking too old.

I get a boho hippy vibe from Jennifer Morrison in this Stella McCartney maxi dress, when I would’ve assumed the wearer of this dress would have given off more of a gothic vibe.

I surprisingly don’t hate the look.  The lace and velvet details add to the charm of this look.

Rose Byrne wore an Alberta Ferretti Fall 2009 teal silk chiffon and sequin cocktail dress.

The dress is unexpectedly paired with nude heels and silvery clutch.

Trust Maggie Q to be the sex kitten of this red carpet.

The stunning actress looked outstanding wearing a Azzaro strapless dress.

The dusty pink strapless dress has a bow detailing at hem and studded details on the hip.

The actress paired her dress with nude Brian Atwood Manic pumps.

InStyle Magazine’s Summer Soiree

I don’t think I have ever said this before in reference to Ashlee Simpson, but I LOVE what she is wearing.

Usually her look has a “I Wannabe In The Band” type of vibe to it, but here she channels a very cute, feminine summery look that I just can’t get enough of.

Her strapless shimmering champagne coloured Jill Stuart playsuit is so chic, which she pairs with pearls, a white Dolce & Gabbana clutch and grey Brian Atwood heels.

For me the best dressed at this event.

Katie Cassidy wore a modified Balenciaga leopard print dress from the Fall 2009 collection.

I love the draping detail around the hips defining the waist, with her bold multi-coloured clutch and silver strappy heels. I’m really happy black pumps are not in this picture.

I don’t know who Yvonne Strahovski is, but I knew it only took me 2 seconds to fall in love with her cute ensemble.

Her Camilla & Marc Spring 2008 striped blazer with her ivory skirt and blood red shoes has a Ralph Lauren feel to it.

Love it.

Jessica Stroup shows a bit of her sassy side wearing a shortened black strapless Rachel Roy Fall 2009 dress with lace panels.

She paired her dress with Stella McCartney black heels and a matching Sergio Rossi clutch.

I’ve loving how her bob is constantly evolving. I can barely remember how she looked with longer hair.

Jessica is neck and neck with Ashley Greene as my favourite red carpet newbie this year.

I go back and forth with everyone who wears Herve Leger. I know many of you wish these bandages dresses were burned, but some do look great.

This isn’t one of those times. Eliza Dushku is a busty lady and this type of dress doesn’t flatter.

I preferred this Herve Leger armor-trim dress on the runway with one strap rather than two, but I do love the YSL tribute sandals which complement the dress well.

Eliza also carried a bright colourful clutch.

“Lost” actress Emilie de Ravin has been MIA from the red carpet for a long while, but she makes a spectacular return wearing a beautiful ivory lace Max Azria Fall 2009 mini dress.

The runway dress is styled have more of a tougher edge, but Emile’s fully lined version appears softer although she added a studded belt to prevent her look from being too sickly sweet.

Like Alexa Chung, Cat Deeley is flying the flag for us Brits in the US but her chic style is more to my liking.

Cat wore British brands via her a white crochet Jaeger dress paired with tan Mulberry sandals.

Our English rose glows so beautifully, with clean golden locks.

Jennifer Morrison opted for a strapless orange Sonia Rykiel dress with a folded neckline and a voluminous skirt.

I love the bright colour and the cute braided hairstyle.

She pairs her look with a Raven Kauffman Couture clutch.

Miranda Cosgrove has such an infectious smile it’s hard not to love her.

The actress walked the red carpet wearing a Vena Cava Narthex tiered dress.

The brushstroke-print tiers on the bodice and hem adds a touch of colour to the cream sleeveless dress.

Dania Ramirez opted for a white Dolce & Gabbana trademark strapless bustier dress with a eyelet skirt and bright yellow heels.

Krysten Ritter wore red strappy sandals with her midnight blue Proenza Schouler quilted bustier dress.

The dress has a quilted silk charmeuse bustier with perfectly complements the voluminous pleated silk faille skirt.

Sanaa Lathan looked radiant wearing a Tadashi Shoji Fall 2009 hyacinth print chiffon one-shoulder dress.

Jordana Brewster’s Reem Acra Fall 2009 gold leaf jacquard halter dress with black belt, ensure she stood out amongst everyone else who opted for a more summery look.

Garcelle Beauvais opted for a full-length one-shouldered pale pink dress with a coral floral print.

She paired her dress with gold, a tan clutch and coral hooped earrings.

Maggie Grace is always so graceful.

I love her one-shouldered dress with a Dries van Noten Spring 2009-esqe mosaic print.

I’m really not keen on Shenae Grimes’ make-up, but her navy zipper trimmed Isabel Lu dress is cute.

Her look is paired with Miu Miu heels and a Kotour clutch.

Radha Mitchell wore a floaty floral vintage Cardinali dress and vintage KJL bangle from Decades Inc., paired with a Bottega Veneta clutch.

The white sunglasses and wedges add to the summery look she was going for.

Jessica Lucas wore a beautiful emerald one-shouldered Jay Godfrey Resort 2010 dress with a black waistband.

The “Melrose Place” actress accessorized with black pumps, a black clutch and a Swarovski bracelet.

The fashion roller coaster that is Lynn Collins takes another nose dive.

Although I do like the dress and the bright pink lips, the rest of the look feels alien the dress.

The hair is really granny-ifed and the Jeffrey Campbell Potion Ankle Boots – which are very similar to the Opening Ceremony boots – are very rock chick making this look too busy for me.
