Celebrities Love…Iris van Herpen X United Nude Heels

You may look at these Iris van Herpen X United Nude heels and think Aliens have landed, but they are a hot favourite with celebs right now.

Solange Knowles gave them their red carpet debut when she sat front row at Charlotte Ronson’s Spring 2011 fashion show, and since then Kim Kardashian and Louise Roe have been spotted wearing them.

The United Nude shoes were created ats part of a collaboration with Iris van Herpen.

The numerous thin strips of gold leather are twisted to give three-dimensional characteristics to these unique heels.

These limited edition shoes are without a doubt the statement piece of any outfit.

Do you love ’em or hate ’em?

If you love ’em, you can purchase them from Browns Fashion.

DKMS 4th Annual Gala – Solange Knowles In Derek Lam

Beyonce’s little sister, Solange Knowles recently attended the DKMS 4th Annual Gala in New York.

The singer walked the red carpet wearing a Derek Lam Spring 2010 haltered romper.

I love the romper. It’s so very cute, but I don’t like her Casadei heels.

The problem is not that they are black.

The problem is that they look so very heavy for her Spring time look.

2009 MTV Video Music Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
Taylor Swift looked so graceful on the red carpet wearing a Kaufman Franco Resort 2009 one shoulder draped nude silver sequin gown.

I know many of you are rolling your eyes and saying “Not another embellished red carpet dress”, but you can’t deny who stunning she was on the red carpet.

Red Carpet Rebel Award
Leighton Meester doesn’t know what ‘play it safe’ means, and I love her for constantly keeping things interesting.

The red carpet rebel wore an interesting white and grey sequin Christian Cota Fall 2009 dress with petal sleeves.

Crazy studded Giuseppe Zanotti fan cut-out boots, a Bottega Veneta clutch, and Cathy Waterman jewelry completed the look along with smoky eyes and a single bangle.

Most Improved Award
Maybe it’s because she stopped trying so hard, or maybe it’s because her sister looked so bad but I liked what Solange was wearing for a change.

Her Armand Basi One LBD with a interesting folded details doesn’t scream “attention” for once.

De Ju Vu Award
Katy Perry does look amazing wearing this Blonds Spring 2009 strapless spikey dress which has been modified from the runway, but I’ve seen so many variations of this corset on Rihanna, Britney and Fergie that I’m starting to get a bit bored of this look.

As if her dress didn’t sparkle enough she added JudeFrances jewelery to her look.

It’s A Bit Formal, But I Love It Award
Nelly Furtardo’s Elie Saab Fall 2009 sheath dress with an embellished neckline may seem to formal for the VMAs, but I absolutely love this dress.

It reminds me of the dress Kelly Osbourne wore to the GQ Awards last week.

Best Mini Dress Award
Rose Byrne was the biggest surprised on this red carpet, but she got into the spirit of the event by wearing a cute Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 black mini dress with a purple floral print.

Best Balmain Award
Shakira’s sexy look was more fitting to this Balmain Fall 2009 dress than Pink, even though most of us are not fans of the thigh-high boots trend.

Best LBD Award
Alicia Keys who I would’ve expected to wear something more colourful, opted for a black sequin Dolce & Gabbana dress with silver circle details.

A sliver clutch and multi-coloured heels complete the look.

Best Jumpsuit Award
After Amber Rose’s hideous jumpsuit Keri Hilson couldn’t do any worse.

She looked stunning wearing a sexy – yet not trashy -black plunging Charlotte Ronson Fall 2009 jumpsuit with embellished wide shoulders.

Davidelfin showed for the first time in Bryant Park this week. Amerie attended the show and obviously became a instant fan of the collection.

Best Use Of Colour Award
Whilst a lot of stars opted for black Amerie brought a burst of colour to the red carpet, wearing an aqua Davidelfin Spring 2010 mini dress which was just off the runway.

She paired her caped dress with black pigalles and an ankle accessory.

Most Predictable Award
I knew Alexa Chung was going to walk this red carpet wearing a cute dress with ankle boots. She didn’t let me down.

I hate the boots, but I can’t deny how cute her Luella Fall 2007 dress is.

Best High-Street Award
Lauren Bosworth’s may have only spent $268 on her black and white embroidered French Connection Damask dress but it was one of the best on this red carpet.

Neither Hate It, Nor Love It Award
I’m not a fan of Lady GaGa’s style by many means, but this was one of her finer moments.  Mostly because she was not exposing her derrière.

Her look was very theatrical with her gold Phantom of the Opera mask, tilted hat and feathered neck brace.

Under all that was a Jean Paul Gaultier black gown.

Social Events Of The Week

Samantha Thavasa Disney Collection, Japan

Beyonce and Solange Knowles were in Japan to promote the “Samantha Thavasa Disney Collection” of handbags.

I would’ve thought a younger face like Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez or Miley Cyrus would have been more appropriate to promote Disney line.

Anyway the sisters looked fabulous at the unveiling.

Beyonce looked svelte wearing a Akiko Ogawa Fall 2009 strapless blue patterned dress with an asymmetrical skirt and taupe heels.

It was a drastic transformation but Solange Knowles looks good with her new ‘do. I would never have the guts to sport this look myself so kudos to her.

She wore a white tank top with a cute ruffled pink skirt.

Solange has obviously been inspired by her sisters love of fierce heels, because she’s sporting a very interesting pair of Moschino Cheap & Chic Fall 2009 wedges.

DoSomething.org Celebrates The Power Of Youth, LA

Ashley Greene is becoming my Sophia Bush of 2009.

Each event she gives us something new. It was cute at the Teen Choice Awards, and sassy at this event wearing an Opening Ceremony black bustier dress with a lattice detail on the back.

Sultry soft waves, a mustard clutch and ivory Etro heels complete the look.

Shenae Grimes gives us a rich colour wearing a cute red Moschino tiered v-neck sleeveless dress, with some stunning accessories.

I love that bracelet.

Aubrey O’Day pairs her Alejandro Ingelmo woven slingbacks with a studded top and black leather skirt with an asymmetrical zipper.

Surprisingly covered up for Miss O’Day.

I’m not crazy about Leah Renee’s hairstyle but I do love the ruffles on her Notte by Marchesa strapless dress, which she pairs with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.

“Bandslam” Special Screening, LA

Earlier I spoke about Leighton Meester’s weekend disaster, well Vanessa Hudgens had her own too.

She temporarily revert back to her tried and much tested boho inspired look wearing a Halé Bob’s silk chiffon maxi halter dress.

The print is hideous, the dress makes her look really short, and her feather earrings are cringe-worthy.

Not a good look.

PURE Nightclub, Las Vegas

Jenny McCartney shows us how thigh-high boots can go terribly wrong, undoing all the hard work fashion magazines have been doing trying to convince me that this look can work off the runway.

Armani 5th Avenue Store Opening

Victoria Beckham’s street is impeccable, but her red carpet style has not impressed me until last night.

The fashion designer, who has just shown her second collection in New York this week, outshone everyone on the red carpet wearing a one shouldered crystal embellished nude mini Armani dress.

I would have preferred a strappy sandals, but I do love her matching satin pumps too.

It wasn’t a surprise to see Alicia Keys at this event, as she has just a close working relationship with Giorgio Armani.

The gorgeous singer arrived wearing a long black coat, which she wore at the Max Azria show, which she removed to reveal a stunning coral Armani sheath dress.

She wore her dress with a amazing pair of jewel encrusted Armani Privé Fall 2007 slingbacks, which have a contrast bow on the side.

January Jones wore a stunning red Armani crystal embellished dress. Despite the colour, I expected something with more pizazz from Miss Jones.

Maybe it’s just the hair that is not working for me.

Zoe Saldana worked a 20s vibe with Marcel waves, which I think worked really well with her shimmering white dress.

I love the rosette detail on the shoulder.

Elsa Pataky is usually a lot more expressive on the red carpet, whether it’s too revealing, too short, or too unusual.

So imagine my surprised that she wore a black tuxedo, with a sexy sheer top. Too safe for Elsa.

Despite me fully not understanding what Molly Sims does – like Joy Bryant – I always appreciate her efforts on the red carpet.

She is always impeccable, which is why I’m really baffled by this fringed crochet number, over a black ensemble.

Across the Armani ranges, I am shocked that this is the best she could do last night.

I believe that is suppose to be red lipstick, but I am seeing orange.

This is a really nice skirt suit that Solange Knowles wore.

Nice if you are Cate Blanchett, or a lady who lunches, or someone who has the style, grace and sophistication to pull it off, but on a 20-something year old girl? NO.

And that neon pink clutch with that suit? NO, it does not work.

Does this girl have a stylist?

When will she find a balance and wear something appropriate?

If Kim Kardashian can do it, Solange has NO excuse.

09.02.09 Worst Dressed

2009 Grammy Awards – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
M.I.A is due to give birth any moment, as 8 February was her due date.

Unlike Kimoria Lee Simmons, pregnancy has not soften M.I.A’s style, in fact it has made it a whole lot worse.

I don’t even know where to begin to describe this, but is was created by Manish Arora for his Spring 2009 collection.

Her kicks are GOLA by Christian Lacroix.

Worst Beyonce Impression Award
I should be thankful that Leona Lewis is not wearing tights, but this Randi Rahm nude dress is so 2005 Beyonce.

No original styling here at all.

Worst C-3PO Impression & Over Embellished Award
The embellishments on Paula Abdul’s Basil Soda Spring 2009 yellow pleated gown, reminds me of C-3PO from Star Wars.

The yellow is great on her, but there is too much going on, on her shoulder.

OTT Award
Sadly Kate Beckinsale thought she had arrived at the Oscars.

Yes it’s a really gorgeous Reem Acra gown with a stunning two tone tulle hem, but it’s way too much dress for the Grammy’s. A cute cocktail dress would have been much better.

Still So Desperate Award
This is a perfect cute canary yellow mini for the Grammy’s, but watching Solange Knowles pose on the red carpet, was exhausting. I could smell her desperation from here.

Most Unflattering Award
I love the rose print on Jordin Sparks’ strapless custom made Debra Davenport gown, but it does not flatter her at all.

Maybe I am too used to seeing her legs in a short sassy dresses, because for me, this doesn’t work for her.

180 Award
Just when we thought Paris Hilton had turned a corner in the style stakes, she reverts back to this. Tiny, revealing, trashy.

I had a feeling her good run would end, but just not this soon. She is wearing a Versace Spring 2003 mini.

Space Cadet Award
I am usually a fan of Estelle’s unique style, but this winged space age Bernard Chandran dress with Halston shoes, just leaves me cold.

If she wanted to wear such an edgy dress, why add the big chunky necklace?

A very confusing look.

Worst Black Award
This is two boring black dresses in two days for Duffy.

For someone who started out with a unique style, she certainly has taken several steps back.

Wearing Alberta Ferretti.
