Social Events Of The Week

Sinupret For Kids at LA Shorts Festival, Hollywood

Scarlett Johansson channels her inner Jean Harlow looking divine wearing a cream Prada dress with nude heels.

I love how the dress nips her in at the waist and the details on the shoulders.

I’m still desperately missing her as a blonde, but I guess this colour is for her “Iron Man 2″ role.

“G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra” Berlin Photocall

It appears Mother Nature has declared war on Sienna Miller.

Firstly she got wet at the G.I. Joe London photocall. This time it rained during the Berlin photocall.

She just can’t catch a break.

Her Dries van Noten tapered pants are very similar to the Loewe ones she wore recently.   But on this occasion she opts for a simple KAIN Label grey pocket tank, a leopard print scarf with Chloe heels and still looks fabulous.

How does she do it?

An Evening With Dita Von Teese And Special Guests, Hollywood

Whether she’s wearing Couture or a long polka dot Moschino gown, Dita von Teese always gives us 100% perfection.

Those pouty red lips against her porcelain skin is very much her trademark look. Seeing her with any other colour lipstick would totally shock me.

106 and Park at BET Studios, New York

Mariah Carey proves she’s not all gowns and cleavage as she wore denim capri pants and a simple black tee for her TV appearance.

OK it’s not her best look, but just check out her Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

Are you drooling yet?  I bet Beyonce is.

“Jennifer’s Body” Comic-Con Party, San Diego

Urgh…Megan Fox started off so well promoting Transformers.

This Gothic vibe really doesn’t work for me.

So many of you said that she was a passing phase and that phase appears to be officially o.v.e.r.

“The Wendy Williams Show”, New York

Jordin Sparks continues to promote her new album “Battlefield”.

Leaving the “Wendy Williams show” she looked adorable flashing her trademark megawatt smile whilst wearing a hot pink Bebe studded Trapunto strapless embellished top with a black satin skirt and silver strappy sandals.

“G.I JOE: The Rise Of Cobra” London Photocall

How uncanny.  I was just saying earlier today that the Loewe Spring 2009 collection doesn’t get enough love from celebrities, and now two UK fashionistas are flying to Spanish flag.

First Victoria Beckham and now Sienna Miller.

Unfortunately for Sienna her clothing were soaked on the boat trip to the HMS Belfast, where she joined her castmates for the London photocall of her new movie “G.I JOE: The Rise Of Cobra”.

Being the good humoured girl that she is, Sienna showed off her soaked grey Loewe Spring 2009 canvas pants to the photographers gathered at the event.

Her military-style look was complete with a white chiffon blouse from the same collection, with gold piping and shiny gold buttons.

The ensemble was worn with aqua, grey, pink and gold tipped lizard and crocodile fan pumps from the same collection.

Another great look for Sienna.

Rachel Nichols, who you may remember as a blonde playing Julia in the movie “Sisterhood of Travelling Pants 2″, wore a grey asymmetrical Brian Reyes shift dress from the Fall 2009 collection.

She towered over Sienna Miller wearing a black satin pair of Casadei pumps.

Whilst her co-stars wore designer clothes, Pregnant Victoria’s Secret model Karolina Kurkova, wore head-to-toe Topshop.

She wore a red striped Topshop dress with a peplum at the waist which covered her tiny bump.

Added to her look was a Topshop black suede panther belt with a pair of Topshop suede boots.

Cheap but chic.

Runway To “G.I. Joe The Rise Of The Cobra” Sydney Press Conference – Sienna Miller In Poltock & Walsh

Sienna Miller opted for a very laid back look for the Sydney press conference for her new action movie “G.I. Joe The Rise Of The Cobra”.

The actress look radiant wearing a cute Axl print dress from the Poltock & Walsh Fall 2009 collection.

She wore her dress with a pair of suede/leather Chloé camel lace-up ankle boots.

Sienna kept her make-up fresh and light as her honey coloured hair shone in the glorious sunshine.

Only Sienna can wear something this casual and be considered for Best Dressed Of The Week.

Fiamma Poltock and Katie Walsh are London based designers, you can view their full Fall 2009 collection here. Apparently Kate Moss is also a huge fan of their work.

Social Events Of The Week

Escada Spring 2010 Presentation Berlin Fashion Week, Germany

Diane Kruger was back in her native country to attend the Escada Spring 2010 presentation.

The back drop and red carpet were both pink but in her stunning pink dress with a gathered detail on the hip, Diane still stands out.

Her dress was paired with nude strappy sandals and a silver clutch for an utterly feminine look.

Anja Gockel Spring 2010 Presentation Berlin Fashion Week, Germany

Earlier in the day Diane attended the Anja Gockel Spring 2010 presentation.

The actress dressed super causal but still managed to look incredibly chic mixing boho with utilitarian chic wearing a simple ivory crochet top with khaki cargo shorts.

Who would have thought cargo shorts could looks so sexy?

Tan sandals and a matching satchel complete the look.

Henley-on-Thames Royal Regatta, Oxfordshire

Regular readers will know I’m not a fan of Daisy Lowe and her “model” status, but I must admit I do like this cute look.

We’ve seen many white dresses on the red carpet during this summer season, so it’s no surprise Daisy’s picked this Christopher Kane scallop edge dress for this event.

She predictably gives her look an edgy with a leopard-print coat, plus a playful straw hat, oversized shades and nude Mary-Janes.

Naven And Boulee Fashion Event, LA

I adore Khloe Kardashian’s Naven skinny mini skirt. Mostly because of the colour, but also because of the way it gives her such a tiny defined waist.

She wears her skirt with a Boulee Resort 2009 bustier and Giuseppe Zanotti open-toe booties.

This has to be one of Khloe’s best looks.

10 Years Younger Live Photocall, London

Myleene Klass is back from the jungle where she was presenting the US version of “I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.”

The presenter seems to have had some free time to sunbathe, as she is glowing with her golden tan which has brought out cut freckles on her nose.

Her tan is executed more wearing this green satin Banana Republic dress with a black patent belt.  Trib Two’s and a large silver flower ring complete the look.

BOSS Orange Spring 2010 Presentation – Berlin Fashion Week, Germany

Like Diane, Sienna Miller dressed to attend this show, but she is looks quite elegant plus she’s has a dewy natural glow.

I don’t think I have ever she her hair look so straight. She normally always has that just got out of bed scruffy look going on.

She wore pegged jeans and navy top teamed with super-cute grey heels.  The look just oozes easy breezy summer chic.

Variety Club Children’s Charity Party, London

We didn’t see Rachel Stevens on the red carpet for years, now she seems to be at every London event.

These Preen Power bandage dresses don’t seem to go out of style. They’ve been created in every colour under that rainbow and they’re still going strong.

Rachel paired her grey dress with a sleek black clutch and blue peep-toe shoe-boots.

“The Proposal” Germany Premiere

Sandra Bullock wore a loose taupe Halston wrap dress with an asymmetrical hem. Her dress is paired with a brown studded belt and Christian Louboutin ankle boots.

Not my favourite of all her looks as I wish to see a more vibrant colour on her.

Versace & Whitney Art Party with Starlight Foundation, New York

Donatella Versace attended this event wearing a black sheath dress with a aqua swoosh going across the bodice.

At first I thought it was a Jil Sander Fall 2009 dress, but Donatella surely only wears what she creates so I would guess she has taken a leaf out of Stella McCartney’s book and maybe giving us a preview for her upcoming collections.

We’ll have to wait and see.

Sienna Miller For Vogue US July 2009

Sienna Miller graces the cover of the July 2009 edition of Vogue US with a stunning editorial shot by Craig McDean.

I’m surprised Sienna appears in the magazine so soon after she was blasted by Vogue staff after her September 2008 issue.

Apparently Anna Wintour and her team had issues with Sienna’s toothy-ness and her terrible hair, which she refused to cut.

But all that seems to be behind them now and Sienna appears to have forgiven the outburst.

Many of you no doubt question Sienna’s talent as she generally she finds herself tabloids for her love life than critiques on her work. Whether it’s her very nasty split from Jude Law, being topless beach flings with Balthazar Getty, her public life often overshadows her acting career. So, with a role in the sure-to-be blockbuster “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” movie this summer, Sienna’s opening up about everything to Vogue magazine.

On Jude Law and his affair with the nanny: “IIt’s dangerous to bring this up. I talked about him in an interview not long ago, saying that I still love him, and he was like, ‘Please stop talking about it.’ . . . That was a very pivotal time in my life, and I’m happy saying that. It’s a private moment when you get your heart broken for the first time, and that was the absolute antithesis of private. It couldn’t have been more public! I had people on the street being like, ‘ ’Ang in there, loov!’ and all you want to do is crawl into a cave and weep for a week”

Social Events Of The Week

Hopings Got Talent Fundraising Event, London

Lily Allen looked outstanding wearing a prom-esqe red Prada dress, teamed with taupe Fendi bow-front peep-toes, and a blue quilted Chanel bag. One of many that she owns.

Her make-up was flawless, I love the a pop red on her lips, and I adore her neat black bob.

Surprisingly well put together.

Sienna Miller tried her hand at a glam rock chick look by teaming a studded Temperley London cropped jacket, a studded vest and a studded Temperley London belt with faded black skinny jeans and studded ankle boots.

I glad Sienna has managed wear a casual look that doesn’t include a hint of boho, but she has over done things with the studded details. At this point I wouldn’t be surprised if she was wearing studded pants.

Her look was completed with a Romanek crocodile clutch.

“Public Enemies” Chicago Premiere

French actress Marion Cotillard wore a very summery lilac strapless Christian Dior dress which she paired with silver open-toe heels and a double buckle belt.

A curly opdo and a brown clutch completed this stunning look.

Sam Fine’s “The Basics of Beauty” DVD Launch Party, New York

Without a single hair out of place Iman stepped a little out of her comfort-zone of glamorous gowns and tea dresses, to wear this black shimmering Derek Lam Spring 2009 jumpsuit with harem pants.

Divine as always.

2009 Los Angeles Film Festival’s Opening Night Premiere Of “Paper Man”

Christina Ricci kept her look simple wearing a purple dress with a black elasticated waist.

White pointy pumps and a quilted Chanel bag completed the look, but Christina opted out of wearing a bra.

Grand Opening Of The New BOA Steakhouse In West Hollywood, LA

Looking fabulous is really easy for Terri Seymour as the former model has a stunning figure.

Whether she’s wearing a designer gown or this strapless floral Topshop dress, it’s almost impossible for her to have an off day.

She completed her look with YSL Trib Two slingbacks.

8th Annual Four Seasons Of Hope Gala, New York

I feels like something is missing from Estelle’s Rachel Roy Pre-Fall 2009 black jumpsuit.

She has a pop of colour via the purple pumps, but I’m still missing something.

Barnes & Noble Book Signing, New York

Lauren Conrad opts for a cute casual style for her New York book signing at Barnes & Noble.

The star wore a very similar look to her last book signing.  Her she wore a loose fitting black and white top with black shorts and black Christian Louboutin pumps.

Wavy hair, a single bracelet and a megawatt smile completed the look.

01.06.09 Best Dressed

2009 MTV Movie Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
This is the impact I wanted Cameron Diaz to make, but instead that honour goes to Sienna Miller.

I love the sea green colour of her Swarovski-encrusted Twenty8Twelve Fall 2009 dress.

The length is perfect to show off her pins, and the shoulder pads are subtle enough not to draw any Balmain comparisons.

The Brit actress carried a silvery Chanel clutch, and wore pair gorgeous Nicholas Kirkwood gold heels, to complete this stunning look.

I Don’t Follow Red Carpet Rules Award
If we expected Kristen Stewart to wear a cute pink mini dress, with silver strappy sandals, we were wrong.

She hit the red carpet wearing a Yigal Azrouël Fall 2009 red and black dress, with a cross cross detail on the sheer yoke, and a wide black belt.

I can imagine her being wrestled into this dress, and her stylist compromising on the Converse sneakers, but she totally rocks this look.

Best Black Award
Leighton Meester took a risk at the Costume Institute Gala, which didn’t pay off for me, but this edgy cut-out Emilio De La Morena Spring 2009 dress totally works.

This interesting dress has peek-a-boo parts, sheer panels, folds, and cut-outs, which Blair Waldorf wouldn’t approve of, but totally love.

She completes her look with Brian Atwood Brie purple suede ankle boots.

Risk That Paid Off Award
Taraji P. Henson certain got into the spirit of this fun awards ceremony, wearing a black and white strapless printed Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 bustier dress.

The part French maid, part Chinese porcelain inspired look is definitely daring, and with her fun-loving personality she totally pulls it off.

I love how she plays up the ruffled detail on the back of her skirt, and her punky spiky new ‘do.

Moving Out Of Her Comfort Zone Award
This Moschino Fall 2009 red and navy floral print sleeveless dress with a ruffled hem, seems a little out of Lauren Conrad’s comfort-zone, which I really appreciate.

It feels a bit dark and mysterious, which is complemented with dark red lips, and black strappy booties.

I only wish she had pulled her hair back, to show off the floral shoulder detail.

Best Use Of Colour Award
I love to see bold bright colours on the red carpet, which is why I love Vanessa Hudgens peach satin Max Azria dress.

The dress is very grown up, but she injects her youthful glow and enthusiasm, to make this a perfect red carpet look, which she pairs with Jimmy Choo shoes, and a Nancy Gonzalez bronze clutch.

I really glad she didn’t go full on boho, with a printed maxi dress, which we’ve seen many times from her.

Hate The Hair, Love The Dress Award
I love Megan Fox’s black and gold Dolce & Gabbana strapless brocade cocktail dress, which she had shorten. It really suits her dark, mysterious persona, plus it shows off her toned figure.

She wisely kept accessories to a minimum, and added a bit of spice via her Christian Louboutin Differa sandals.

The biggest downsides are her hair, overly orange glow.

Best Theme Award
At first I hated Ashley Greene’s hair, but then I realised how much it worked with what appears to be a 40s housewife theme.

The hair works with her alluringly form-fitting Dolce & Gabbana floral print dress, with a beautiful, yet subtle voluminous skirt.

A neon yellow clutch, and bold red lips, add a touch of bright colour.

The Kate Beckinsale “This Is Not The Oscars” Award
I was really surprised to see LeAnn Rimes wearing such a formal gown by J.Mendel to the MTV Movie Awards.

She looks beautiful, she really does, but she’s a little overdressed.

Most Vanilla Award
Miley Cyrus opted for a very soft look for this event. I would’ve expected something with a lot more attitude, but she looks lovely in her pale pink cowl neck Moschino Cheap & Chic dress, which had a ruffled detail, going down her back.

The only hint of the wild rock wannabee Miley, was via her rings and bracelets.

Best Re-Run Award
I love Ashley Tisdale’s purple leather Elise Øverland dress, and the accessories she picked really punch up the look, especially those lust worthy Paul & Joe Sister heels.

We’ve seen this look before on the red carpet, but as Ashley wears it so well, that all is forgiven.

Surprisingly Not Predictable Award
I would have expected 3 things from Audrina Patridge.

1. Something low cut
2. Her black Alexander McQueen Bow Clutch
3. Her Balmain studded heels.

She blows that out of the water wearing a loose fitting paillette covered Joey Tierny Couture dress, with a dove grey Alexander McQueen clutch, and cream Louboutin heels.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Shoes Award
Keke Palmer’s look was almost perfect. I really loved her coral embellished Elise Øverland dress. It’s young, it’s fun, it sparkles, and it summery, but those grey booties lose her many points.

Stand Out Award
Malin Akerman stood out the most, because she is the only one who opted for pants, wearing a crisp, white Dolce & Gabbana suit, with a pale blue corset.

Her hair was sleeked back to complete this sophisticated look, which she didn’t over accessorize.

Most Summery Award
Yes Paris Hilton needs a new clutch and shoe combo, but there’s no denying her vibrant vest for spring and summery colours.

I love her cute coral Jenny Packham Spring 2009 strapless mini, with its ruffled skirt, and gold embroidered bodice.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun/Au Natural Award
Monique Coleman must have sensed when she looked in the mirror, that she would get ridiculed for her hair.  I admire her for ditching the extensions, and going au natural. I can’t see many others sporting this look.

Her Christian Louboutin Spartenvol Strass sandals complemented her silver and black spacey mini tutu dress, which you may all hate, but I will take this over a mini dress with tights any day.

She wanted to have fun at this event, and it shows.

Matthew Williamson For H&M Pre Launch Event


If you were following me on twitter, you would have known that I attended the Matthew Williamson for H&M Pre-Launch event this evening.

The event started at 1830, but I got there around 1845, and was so crestfallen when I saw that the queue was going around the block. This meant I could kiss those pieces from my wish list goodbye.

The best thing about standing in the queue was seeing Matthew Williamson, who was happy to smile for the picture above, as he walked the length of the queue to see how many fashion hungry women were keen to get their hands on his collection.


Although I didn’t get the studded belt that I wanted, nor the Ginnifer Goodwin’s sequined dress, I did get the 5 pieces above.

My favourite piece was the fuchsia pink peacock embellished cardigan, which I originally wanted in blue, but I just adore it in pink.

For those of you who wanted to know prices:
£29.99/€39.90 for the cowl neck peacock top,
£49.99/€79.90 for the cardigan,
£34.99/€49.90 for the sleeveless embroidered top,
£39.99/€59.90 for the jacquard skirt and;
£14.99/€22.90 for the peacock pendent.


One of Matthew Williamson’s darlings, Sienna Miller was there.

She was not wearing the H&M line, but a multi-coloured dress from his Fall 2009 collection, which she looked amazing in.

Love the dress, and how fresh she looks, but I’m not crazy about the shoes at all.


If Sienna is Queen darling, then Mischa Barton is Princess darling.

She arrived wearing the same navy blue jacquard Matthew Williamson for H&M skirt I had purchased, with a cropped white tee, and Matthew Williamson for H&M leather waistcoat.

I love how the whole look is pulled together with those amazing Alexander McQueen studded platform peep-toe booties.

I still want that sequined dress, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will be there tomorrow.


UPDATE: I went back early this morning and got the sequined dress.

I ? it. It looks so cute in my wardrobe, and I can’t wait to wear it.
