Calvin Klein Party

Kerry Washington always looks classy, and this time is no different.

The beautiful actress wore a white Calvin Klein Resort 2010 slightly off-the-shoulder dress which was sheer in some places, and had a peplum at the waist.

Kerry accessorized her look with bronze heels and a matching clutch.

Rose Byrne also opted for a dress from the Resort 2010 collection.

Her breathtakingly beautiful nude Calvin Klein off-the-shoulder dress subtly hints a nudity, without exposing anything.

I love the gold accessories which add a lot of warmth to her look.

This girl is on a roll a the moment. Long may it continue.

I love the lilac colour of Molly Sims’ ensemble.

She wears a round neck fitted Calvin Klein top, with a textured skirt from the Fall 2009 collection.

My only problem are those clunky Calvin Klein heels. A sexy strappy silver sandal would have been preferred.

Thandie Newton = perfection in Calvin Klein.

Sara Paxton wasn’t my favourite at this event, but being a newcomer she’s doing well on the red carpet.

Her black and navy sweetheart necklined dress was paired with black pumps.

I’m excited to see what else is to come from Sara.

The Serpentine Gallery Summer Party

Thandie Newton gets another gold star this time for wearing this multi-coloured Matthew Williamson Resort 2010 dress.

Her look is almost a head-to-toe carbon copy of the runway look, but Thandie opted for a skinny gold studded belt instead of the wider runway belt, and she has a smaller bejeweled clutch.

Nude cut-away ankle boots complete this stunning look.

Best Dressed of the Week is going to be very crowded with Thandie and Emma’s looks.

Roisin Murphy finally does one of the silk voluminous shoulder pieces from the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 collection justice.

I’m quite surprised her look is so close to the runway version, as she usually mixes things up a bit.

Her many accessories included bejeweled belt, gold necklace and large copper sequined bag which she carried as a clutch.

My only disappointment are those black patent heels.  Too stale for this kind of look.

Little Boots arrived wearing the same D&G silk brocade jacket with leggings, which Emma Watson wore in her editorial for Elle UK.

Little Boots is quiet daring with her style choices, so I’m surprised she didn’t copy the runway look.

After her disappointing looks at Haute Couture Fashion Week, Dasha Zhukova gets back to her stunning best wearing a cream Azzedine Alaia dress with a frou-frou skirt and a matching waist belt.

Her dress is gorgeous which she complements with a black and white print cropped jacket and Azzedine Alaia shell decorated heels.

After giving birth to her first child a few months ago Tess Daly has already snapped back to her perfect best.

The TV presenter showed off her stunning pins in this gold See by Chloé mini dress with a tiered bodice, which was folded in the skirt to add subtle volume.

Tess accessorized with some very sexy Jimmy Choo Billie Lizard-print sandals and mirrored clutch.

Meg Matthews continues to channel a very demure look. The wild rock chick seems to be a thing of the past.

Meg is wearing the black version of the same Antonio Berardi tweed crew neck dress she wore to the “Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince” UK Premiere.

Poppy Delevigne looks super sexy wearing a long sleeved black embellished mini dress with a pair of Topshop frill sandals.

Lily Collins has walked many red carpets, but I’m still yet to see her do anything noteworthy.

Phil Collins’ daughter is supposed to be an actress but I couldn’t name a single film or TV show she has been in.

Lily wore a lace Topshop lace bodycon dress with some Topshop black and gold sandals which very much look like Louis Vuitton Spicy sandals.

Gold jewelery and a black patent clutch completed the look.

Erin O’Connor wore a plunging jade-green Donna Karan Grecian style dress.

The shapeless dress should drown Erin’s slender frame, but the drapes and her elegant stature prevent that.

Natalie Imbruglia red gown is gorgeous but the Chanel black and white bag is so heavy it feels like a slap in the face.

A black clutch would have been much more subtle.

Olivia Palmero wore a champagne coloured dress with a dazzlingly Zara clutch, Topshop leather disc jacket, and Topshop velcro strapped heels.

Either these girls love Topshop as much as I do, or the retailer sponsored this event.

Calvin Klein Private Dinner

There aren’t enough words in the English dictionary to describe how beautiful Thandie Newton is.

I don’t think I’ve ever dislike anything Thandie has worn. She always looks amazing as she always knows what works well for her shape and skin tone.

She oozes style and grace from every pore. I’m sure she could even make a bin liner looks sexy.

At this party hosted during Paris Couture Fashion Week, the actress wore a stunning Calvin Klein nude dress with a embroidered detail through-out and a gathered detail on the hip.

I wasn’t crazy about this dress on the runway, but Thandie has made me fall in love with it.

Her dress was paired with nude sandals, invisible make-up, a shimmering box clutch and a sleek updo.

Dasha Zhukova maybe dating a Billionaire, but she’s not afraid to wear a dress which is a few season old.

When she looks this good in her nude Burberry Prorsum Spring 2008 dress, why not?

It’s a sexy little number and the colour is complementary to her colouring.

You may remember Emma Watson wore this dress back in February 2008 to the “Burberry & Vanity Fair Portraits” event in London.

Claire Danes always looks simple, elegant, and stylish.

Some of you would – and have – said her style is boring, but she sticks to her trusted formula of classic shift that complement her shape.

Case and point this stunning Calvin Klein Fall 2009 silver embellished dress with a jagged hem.

Social Events Of The Week

Martini “Stay Beautiful” Launch Party, London

Thandie Newton, is the new gorgeous face of Martini, and she hosted a party in London this week to celebrate.

In my eyes, Thandie Newton can do no wrong. I don’t think I have ever said a bad word about her as she’s total perfection every time she steps out.

She wore a beautiful black vintage dress with lace detailing, which was trimmed with gold.

Her sleek updo, Louis Vuitton clutch, and gold strappy heels complete this stunning look.

Best Dressed of The Week contender for sure.

“The Hangover” London Premiere

Heather Graham shows off her curves in a figure-hugging blue asymmetrical Michelle Jonas dress, with a gold ring detail on the shoulder.

As soon as I saw it, I thought of Mariah Carey for some reason.

I think it’s safe to say that Heather isn’t wearing any underwear with this dress, because she looks to be smuggling raisins, and that side split is daring low.

Heather red carpet looks are getting more and more risky as she promotes this film, which is a good enough indication for me that the movie can’t be that good.

A gold cuff completes this look.

“L.A.Candy” Book Launch Party, LA

Lauren Conrad shows off her golden glowing tan in a black 3.1 Phillip Lim mini dress and black Louboutin’s.

Can’t wait to see what this girl does next.

Graduate Fashion Week 2009 Gala Show, London

When I picture Mark Fast’s creations, I see them on people like Tilda Swinton, Chloe Sevigny and Roisin Murphy.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wouldn’t have come to mind, and this is why.

She makes this red knit Mark Fast Spring 20009 dress with a fringed detail look really tacky, and dare I say cheap.  A look like this need someone with lots of personality to pull it off. Susie Bubble would totally work this look.

The only thing that stops this look from begin a total disaster are her Giuseppe Zanott gladiator ankle boots.

Who Wore Marchesa Better? Thandie Newton or Georgina Chapman


Back in October, Thandie Newton looked breath-taking at the LA RocknRolla premiere wearing a Marchesa Spring 2009 strapless mini dress.

The pearlized pink dress, was worn with a silver Chanel clutch, and black pointy heels.

The designer of the dress, Georgina Chapman, wore the same dress when she arrived to support fellow Brit, Sir Phillip Green and Kate Moss, at one of the many Topshop/Topman launch parties in New York.

As you all know I love Georgina, but because of the black sequined Marchesa Fall 2008 jacket, I will give this win to Thandie.

Social Events Of The Week

Grand Opening the One&Only Cape Town Resort, South Africa

Thandie Newton wore a really gorgeous Chanel black dress, with a cute bow tie on the front.

The ruffles sleeves added to the girlie girl nature of the dress, whilst she completed her look with a pair of YSL gold studded heels.

Thandie always looks her best, and never lets me down.

“Race To Witch Mountain” London Premiere

I must start off by saying that I think Carla Gugino’s make-up really lets her down.

It takes a lot away from her outstanding dove grey Reem Acra silk chiffon strapless dress, which is quite exquisite, with its embroidered bodice.

Her look is complete with Jimmy Choo sandals.

“Observe And Report” LA Premiere

Anna Faris is a young actress, so she can get away with this plum Azzaro dress, which looks like a bikini from the waist up.

Although I don’t like the dress, she looks amazing.

8th Annual Comedy For A Cure, LA

Sporting an impressive bouffant, Teri Hatcher wore a toga-style beige dress by Monique Lhuillier.

Whereas her Desperate Housewives co-star Dana Delany, opted for a cute flirty Prada black taffeta dress, with ruffles and a pleated hem.

I really appreciate the maroon heels. Black would’ve been so one-dimensional.

Moet & Chandon: A Tribute To Cinema

Eva Herzigova was the only one on this red carpet to opt for colour.

The supermodel evoked pure glamour in her red satin, strapless puffball Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 dress. This dress was presented in a black longer version, but I much prefer this look on Eva.

There’s something about a fur stole that instantly completes and perfects a look, but the tights are really annoying. This can be forgiven, as it was cold and rainy in London last night.

As lovely as Thandie Newton looks in this Preen Fall 2009 dress, my first thought was that I had seen her in this dress before.

Then I realize that it’s the hair that’s so familiar. Looking back on her photo archive, and her many red carpet appearances, you have to go back to September 2008 to see a different style, which is a shame, because I love her hair down.

Back to her black satin dress. I love the lace panels, which give her a bit of an edge without begin too revealing. I love how she always supports British labels.

Scarlett Johansson is gorgeous and buxom wearing this lace vintage Givenchy LBD, with satin champagne Louboutin’s.

She constantly gives us that old Hollywood look, which fits her so well.

We have been seeing a lot of Jacquetta Wheeler on the red carpet lately, and she’s like a breath of fresh air.

She always looks so statuesque and fresh faced.

Last night with gold strappy sandals she wore a RM by Roland Mouret Apollinaire taffeta gown.

The black full length one shoulder gown has a fishtail skirt, and a large slit to elegantly show-off a bit of leg.

With her nude t-bar Louboutin’s, Rachel Stevens wore a black strapless harem pants jumpsuit.

A bit more colour was added to her look, with a gold rope belt and a ivory clutch with gold detailing.
