A/X Watches Launch

I take back what I said about this Alexander Wang strapless tube dress being a ‘model’ dress.

Sophia more than pulls off this look.

I like that she left her neck bare, and didn’t over accessorize this look.

She is wearing her Dior Extreme gladiator sandals again, whilst completing the look with a Chanel purse.

Lindsay Lohan sure makes this Balmain Spring 2008 strapless mini dress, with silver embellishments look incredibly tacky.

Eva Longoria goes for a sophisticated all black look.

I especially love her Armani Exchange vest, with an exaggerated bow.

Hayden Panettiere looks incredibly cute wearing a green asymmetrical ruffled dress, with tan heels, whilst showing off her A/X watch.

Kristen Bell’s laid back casual look, included an 3.1 Phillip Lim tiered ikat print tank, with khaki pants.

A long beaded necklace, and black peep-toe booties complete the look.

Rachel Pally Luncheon

Sophia Bush *sighs*

So effortlessly beautiful as always.

The actress wore those lust worthy Dior Extreme gladiator heels, with a dove grey v-neck top, and black mini pleated skirt.

I love the look, but I’m instantly drawn to her stunning statement necklace like a magpie.

Exquisite as always.

We are more used to seeing Dita von Teese in Couture, tailored suits, or corsets. So this green jersey Rachel Pally dress is a refreshing change.

The leopard print sunglasses, was one leopard print item too many for me, but I do love her 3 strap Dior Mary Janes.

Wearing the very popular Jimmy Choo Corsica strappy sandals in nude, Kristen Bell wore a Rachel Pally ensemble consisting of a navy poncho top, and a mini lilac skirt.

The ornament around her neck is a bit random, but it works well with her nude Choo’s.

Rachael Leigh Cook’s Rachel Pally Ariel pocket dress is a cute. I love the colour and her necklace, but I really hate those beige boots. They’re killing me.

Amy Smart orange Rachel Pally Alice dress was the perfect choice for her to wear on such beautiful sunny day, but the black peep-toes were a safe, boring choice.

Designer Rachel Pally is wearing on of her signature jersey strapless draped maxi dresses.

What a fantastic way to promote her pieces.

Who Wore Jenni Kayne Better? Sophia Bush or Jamie Chung


My Best Dressed of last week, actress Jamie Chung, wore this strapless floral maxi dress to the the world premiere of Dragonball Evolution in Japan last Tuesday.

Sophia Bush had worn the same dress 7 months earlier to the Teen Choice Awards.

Sophia wore her dress with a grey Fendi Borderline satin clutch, and a string of silver bracelets.

Sophia is one of my many girl crushes, but I prefer the way Jamie wore the dress, with a shorter bodice. This allowed the skirt to appear more voluminous, and I believe it would have billowed like a giant mushroom on the red carpet. Sophia’s skirt looks flat in comparison.

Jamie wins for me.

Malandrino Fall 2009




Catherine Malandrino’s Fall 2009 presentation was held at the Rainbow Room on the 65th floor at the Rockefeller Center. It was refreshing to get away from the hussle an bustle of the tents.

When I arrived on the top floor, I was greeted with a breakfast buffet. This is the first show I had attended with refreshments.

I was very excited to be invited to this show, because Catherine always presents really pretty feminine dresses.

As the curtain fell, and the lights dimmed, and Somewhere Over the Rainbow, played in the background, first model walked out onto a circular stage. The stage was rotating, and I was impressed at how none of the models wobbled like Bambi on ice. I’m pretty sure I would have hit the deck.

The collection is full of very pretty, wearable pieces, made to flatter a woman’s figure. Dresses and separates were embellished with jeweled details and intricate embroidery, draping and ruching emphasised the details. Sheer mesh played a big part, with some pieces nodding to the illusion of nudity.

In Catherine’s notes she had titled her collection “Over The Rainbow” which may explain the bird wings details on some of the pieces, because you would need wings to fly over the rainbow.

Models wore black mesh hair nets, with some also wearing the nets as veils.


Here are some of my pictures. One of my favourite dresses was a black jersey dress, which looked very plain from the front, but the back was open with a stunning jeweled detail on the right shoulder.


Mary J Blige was the guest of honour, as they are very good friends.

The diva did not remove her sunglasses once. Not even when the turned the lights down for the show.

Mary looked outstanding wearing a lilac Malandrino Spring 2009 dress, with eggplant knee-high boots.


Sophia Bush was already one of my secret girl crushes, but yesterday she really went up in my estimation, as she was so incredibly graceful.

She arrived wearing a black coat, to reveal this gorgeous red satin Catherine Malandrino dress with flutter sleeves.


Mena Survai looked really good wearing a Catherine Malandrino sheath dress, with a floral pattern and scalloped edges throughout.

She contrasted her pretty dress, with some kick-ass Pour La Victoire gladiator heels.


Michelle Trachtenberg wore a pale lilac Malandrino Spring 2009 cropped leather jacket, under her all black ensemble. Her and Sophia talked like old friends, it was great to see, as I have witness many celebs pretend other actresses don’t exist at shows.


Here’s a photo of Coco Rocha interviewing Mary J Blige for E! after the show, which I took.

New York Week Front Row

Lela Rose

Kellie Pickler started off very slow this Fashion Week, but she has now got into her stride and is looking fabulous.

Her best look of the week so far, came at the Lela Rose show, were she wore a taffeta teal Lela Rose Spring 2009 dress.

The detail on the bodice is exquisite.

Jennifer Love Hewitt paired a gold Lela Rose neckline embellished dress, with a navy cardi.

Her cute look was completed with a pair of nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

Brittany Snow looked cute in her Lela Rose Spring 2009 ensemble. I love the detail on the skirt, and the collar on the haltered top.

Diane Von Furstenberg

Heidi Klum’s multi-coloured striped shimmering Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2009 dress, which she paired with a large striped belt was gorgeous, but I am so tired of YSL Trib Two’s worn with everything.

Zoe Saldana opted for a white Diane von Furstenberg Pre-Fall 2009 dress with a watercolour floral print. Her silver heels were outstanding.

I would have expected a brighter colour from Katharine McPhee, but she opted for a black and white Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2009 tunic dress.

Donna Karan

Mary Alice Stephenson wore a LBD, but made it more interesting with a large statement necklace, a snake skin clutch and a fur collared coat.

Molly Sims looked stunning wearing a black one-shoulder Donna Karan dress with a gold statement necklace and a black Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

Preen

Roisin Murphy wore a sexy Preen Spring 2009 LBD, with a funky ‘do, then she pores cold water over the whole look by wearing a cardigan.

Reem Acra

Sophia Bush wore a rich two-toned purple Reem Acra dress, from the Fall 2008 collection, which were worn with YSL Trib Two’s.

Lily Collins opted for a lace frock, with gold heels.
