Social Events Of The Weekend

“Streak” Screening, Miami

We had fabulous weather this weekend, and again today in London. Demi Moore’s dress keeps that Spring-time feeling going wearing a fabulous bright yellow sleeveless dress.

She’s still a fresh faced and gorgeous as ever.

“Broken Embraces” Madrid Photocall

Penelope Cruz in wore a tomato red Versace Pre-Fall 2009 long sleeved dress, that is passable for a photocall, what I loved were her Christian Louboutin heels.

What’s the big deal? It’s the detail on the heels. The gold plated heel is carved with an interesting design.

Burberry And GQ Celebrate Burberry The Beat For Men, LA

Liv Tyler wears a sheer dress/camisole under a camel cardigan of almost the same length.

Wearing a feathered headband, Mischa Barton opts for a tame rocker look.

Her black leather pants, and Temperley London leather jacket, is contrasted by wearing a very feminine silk ivory and black Temperley London Spring 2009 blouse.

Her black and white heels are by Charlotte Olympia.

Russell Simmons Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation Art For Life, Miami

Kim Kardashian continues to shrub up nicely wearing a beautiful petrol blue strapless Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 gown.

Debut Of The Witches Fall 2009 Collection

When I first saw Mischa Barton in this dress with the strappy back detail, it instantly reminded me of the black Narciso Rodriguez dress Charlize Theron wore on Letterman last year.

Unfortunately, this look is ruined by the tights and shoes. Why dare to go nearly backless, if you aren’t going to show off your legs?

Launch Of Carrera Vintage Sunglasses

Taylor Momsen continues to baffle me. Her look doesn’t suit her at all. She needs to have serious words with her stylist, because this wannabee Debbie Harry look is comical.

I missed the days when teen stars were wholesome and looked their age.

More From The Front Row

Rodarte

Kristen Dunst was front row at the Rodarte Fall 2009 show looking fantastic wearing a Rodarte Fall 2008 multi-coloured knit dress.

I always love what the Mulleavy sisters produce, I just wish we would see more of their edgy designs on the red carpet.

Calvin Klein

I seriously did not recognise Kate Beckinsale until I saw the caption under her name.

Looking at her hair, I will guess these are clip on bangs. I hope she ditches them before the Oscars.

I appreciate that Kate has tried to shake up her look a bit in this leather dress, but it just feels a bit false.

Eva Mendes wears head-to-toe black. What more can I say?

Erin Wasson + RVCA

Leighton Meester wore a Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2009 ensemble consisting of a gold sequinned top, and a teal snake print skirt, with navy tights and bronze heels.

Like Kate, Leighton as opted for bangs, and like Kate, I don’t think it quite works.

3.1 Phillip Lim

I expected to see more of Becki Newton at fashion week. She arrived at Phillip Lim’s show wearing a taupe sequinned dress, from the designers Spring 2009 collection.

Badgley Mischka

Kellie Pickler continues to shine in the front row. Her she wears a stunning ombre Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with a black sash at the waist.

I have been praising Kellie a lot, but she really should have packed another pair of shoes, she has been wearing those Trib Two’s all week. Even I brought 10 pairs.

Jessica Stroup wore a white strapless Badgley Mischka Spring 2009 collection, with silver slingbacks.

Her dress was presented as a gown, but I equally love this shorten version, as it’s young, fun and suits her personality.

Kim Kardashian wore an black asymmetrical dress, with black Louboutin’s. Another very sophisticated look for Kim.

Anna Sui

Jessica Szhor wore a cute lace dress with black booties.

She as naturally -enviable- thick hair, so I am perplexed about her need for extensions.

Taylor Momsen just tries too hard. What is so wrong with being 15 years old? Why is she trying to act way older than her young years?

I feel like getting a pack of baby wipes, and taking all that eye-liner off her face.

Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld Party

Supermodels Natalia Vodianova and Gisele Bundchen struck a pose together.

With her long leather gloves Natalia wore a crystal embellished Emporio Armani Spring 2009 blazer.

Gisele was conservative by comparison, wearing an all black ensemble.

Julia Restoin Roitfeld attended her brother’s event wearing a cute navy and gold polka dotted Christian Dior Spring 2009 dress with a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 purse.

amfAR New York Gala For Fall 2009 Fashion Week

She’s back. Not only from having a baby, but Michelle Monaghan is back on top form giving us edgy red carpet fashion, that Jennifer Connelly would be proud of.

With her hair pulled back Michelle wore a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 ensemble which consisted of long sleeved orange dress, with patchwork and sequined detail along one side of the dress, and layers of tulle, to give her skirt some volume.

I know a lot of you hate head-to-toe runway looks, but she would have been hard pressed to find a shoe outside of the Vuitton Spring 2009 collection, that would have done this dress justice. A plain black sandal, just wouldn’t do.

This look won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I love it.

OMG, I can’t take this any more.

Taylor Momsen needs to decide who she wants to be.

She is wearing heavy rock chick make-up and a choppy banged ‘do, with a ethereal Marchesa Fall 2008 gown.

She needs to decide on which direct she want to go, because this is all very confusing for me.

Eliza Dushku wore an electrifying nude and silver asymmetrical Kaufman Franco Fall 2008 gown.

Her look is flawless.

Mary J Blige kept her look simple wearing a black Donna Karan gown, which had an asymmetrical neckline.

The credit crunch looks to be affecting everyone, as Julia Restoin-Roitfeld wears the same mini black embellished Balmain Spring 2009 dress, she wore earlier this week to a Vogue Pre-BAFTA party.

Or unlike me, she likes to travel very light.

InStyle/Warner Bros. Golden Globes After Party

Malin Akerman was by far the most outstanding at this event wearing a sunshiny yellow Jason Wu Spring 2009 gown.

Jennifer Esposito wowed me in this stunning ivory lace top with 80s shoulder pads, and a black high-waisted skirt both from the Balmain Spring 2009 collection.

I would kill for this look. ? it.

Before you ask, she is wearing a nude bra under her top.

Jessica Stroup wore a navy and black strapless Brian Reyes dress with a pair of gorgeous Manolo Blahnik heels

Garcelle Beauvais looked divine wearing a red rose Tracy Reese Spring 2009 full skirted asymmetrical dress, with matching shoes and a silver diamante clutch.

Sophia Bush was beautiful and statuesque wearing a black Peter Soronen strapless gown, with an amazing Badgley Mischka necklace.

Taylor Momsen’s grungy look kinda ruins this Christian Dior Spring 2008 fringed gown. Her hair tied back would have made her look so elegant.

Emma Stone wore a Cynthia Steffe Spring 2009 keyhole gown, with a tiered skirt and gold accents.

Ginnifer Goodwin’s Talbot Runhof liquid dress, is not something we are used to seeing on the red carpet. The dress is really interesting, with it gathered skirt and interest used of material.

She completes her look with a Daniel Swarovski silver clutch and pink nails.

Kristen Bell gets back to her best wearing a orange Etro gown.

I must admit I love this electric blue Zuhair Murad Spring 2008 Couture gown on Paris Hilton. I also much prefer Paris with shorter hair.

Sarah Chalke’s plunging taupe satin dress, looks so buttery against her skin.

Amanda Bynes opted out of wearing a gown, and wore this white embellished dress, with gold strappy heels.

Emma Roberts wears a very LBD, with lust-worthy black Pour La Victoire Bianca cutout platform booties.

The unofficial Missoni brand ambassador, Joy Bryant wears a other knitted pieces from their Fall 2008 collection.

Molly Sims opted for a very romantic look with her Diane von Furstenberg floral maxi dress and loose curls.

Brittany Snow kinda strikes out in this gown for me. For one so young, this is quite boring despite being designed by Leanna Marshall for DVF.

Emily Deschanel lights up the red carpet, in this orange dress, which she accessorized with a gold belt.

Metropolitan Opera 125th Season Opening Night Gala

Taylor Momsen recently had a dramatic hair cut, and although the cut look great, it’s not quite working with her beautiful red pleated layered strapless Marchesa Fall 2008 gown, which has rosette details on the bodice.

The teenager compliments her stunning gown, with ruby red lips.

God this woman gets more and more beautiful every time I see her.

Georgina Chapman, the perfect brand ambassador for her collection, wore a midnight blue Marchesa Resort 2009 asymmetric gown, with stunning jeweled detail.

With her hair pulled back, we are able to see her very expensive earrings, which compliment her gown.

Helena Christensen wowed in a more dramatic way, wearing a spectacular peachy gown, with a long train, and stunning jeweled clutch.

The colour is so buttery against her olive skin.

Molly Sims is another model who makes looking stunning on the red carpet very easy.

Molly wore an ivory mermaid J.Mendel gown, with tiny embellishments on the bodice, to give her a very ethereal look.

Parker Posey wore a pink and pink Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2008 dress, which I love, but I wish she would have ditched the furry bag for her photo op.

Christie Brinkley with her trademark megawatt smile, wore a black taffeta strapless Ralph Lauren dress with a tiered skirt with feathers at the top tier .

Designer Tory Burch wore an olive Lanvin Pre-Fall 2008 Grecian gown, with a black velvet contrasting bow.

2008 New Yorkers For Children Fall Gala Red Carpet

Taylor Momsen with her edgy blunt bangs, wore a Philosophy Fall 2008 lilac dress with a black mesh overlay.

The actress was right on trend with a large statement necklace.

Julianne Moore kept her accessories to a minimum with her black YSL strapless dress.

The actress is wearing a very interesting pair of Roger Vivier shoes.

The amazing shoes are covered with small suede flowers.

Mariska Hargitay opted for a black and white shirt/skirt combination, which is effortless chic. The skirt has a floral appliqué at the waist, which is the perfect finishing touch.

Blake Lively is wearing a Burberry Prorsum Fall 2008 feathered scarf, which comedian Russell Brand wore when he presented the MTV Music Awards recently.

She wears her long sleeved eggplant Burberry Prorsum dress with tights, and a pair of Burberry Prorsum Ruched strap platforms.
