The Paley Center For Media’s Tribute To African-American Achievements In Television

The Paley Center For Media's Tribute To African-American Achievements In Television

The Paley Center For Media’s Tribute To African-American Achievements In Television was held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on Monday (October 26) in Beverly Hills, California.

Yaya DaCosta: The actress/model was a vision in yellow, but sadly my smile was turned upside down upon sight of the illusion panel on her Maria Lucia Hohan gown.

Brandy Norwood: The singer/actress wore an Elisabetta Franchi Fall 2015 dress which I love for the floral print and embroidered details and the obi-style belt. The look was styled with pointy blue Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps and a Swarovski ‘Kiosque’ clutch.

Tyra Banks: She can smize, but she can’t dress to save her life. Unflattering and dated as per.

Tyra Banks In Alon Livné – America’s Next Top Model Cycle 21 Premiere Party

Tyra Banks In Alon Livné - America's Next Top Model Cycle 21 Premiere Party

Tyra Banks attended the ‘America’s Next Top Model’ Cycle 21 premiere party held at the SupperClub Los Angeles on Wednesday (August 20) in Los Angeles, California.

I love Tyra, I really do, but this look pained me. Almost left me for dead.

She wore an Alon Livne bodysuit featuring a 3D swirl that leaps off the garment and a sheer illusion panel, paired with black loose-fit trousers.

Where do I start? The top.

Even with all its sculptural brilliance, the top is a disaster.

This is due to her bra being visible via the sheer panel. I don’t think even a flesh-coloured bra would’ve improved this. And what’s even more perplexing is that this was a custom made design.

Then we have the pants. So very unflattering. Painfully so. Too long in the crotch and too long in the overall length.

There is nothing I would save from this look.

Tyra Banks In Peter Pilotto – ANTM

Tyra Banks In Peter Pilotto - ANTM2

Tyra Banks loves bodycon dresses as much as I love jumpsuits, so I was pleasantly surprised to see this picture of her pop up on Twitter today.

Looking like a living doll, the ‘America’s Next Top Model’ judge wore a Peter Pilotto hyper-vivid print dress which makes for a refreshing change.

Her frock, which hails from the Resort 2012 collection, features a strong pattern which has been placed to maximize the fit-and-flare silhouette.

Without a hair out of place, she worked a half-up, half-down retro ‘do to complement the aesthetic.

36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards

Tyra Banks toned down from last years event where she was easily one of the worst dress, to one of the Best Dressed of this event – which wasn’t that much of a challenge.

The TV presenter arrived on the red carpet wearing a coral one-shoulder Rachel Roy Resort 2010 dress, with beige Manolo Blahnik heels and a Sang A nude clutch.

I’m loving the natural look she’s giving us these days, it’s so refreshing and it totally suits her.

She was able strike the right balance of elegance & sophistication.

Ashley Jones wore a flowing backless Matthew Williamson for H&M Summer 2009 floral gown.

Some of you may have this dress in your closets if you were lucky enough to buy this gown before it sold out.

I love the tiered ruffled skirt and the neutral accessories she paired with her gown.

Portia de Rossi’s navy off-the-shoulder Monique Lhullier Resort 2010 gown is absolutely stunning in its simplicity.

My only disappointment is that opted for thong sandals to complete her Grecian look.

She’s married to Ellen DeGeneres not Tom Cruise, surely Ellen wouldn’t object to her wearing heels.

I much prefer Heather Tom’s choice of this navy Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2009 fringed dress, as I feel the burnt orange colour wouldn’t have been flattering to her colouring.

The dress is exquisite which she pairs with Christian Dior heels.

Lara Spencer wore a black and white asymmetrical ruffled gown accented with a red belt.

Her gown was a bold choice and will no doubt have you on the fence, but I was crushing on her Valentino Couture red patent bow peep-toes which was on my favourites list last week.

Lori Loughlin elegantly posed on the red carpet wearing a peachy satin asymmetrical Enzoani gown with embellished details on the shoulder and hip.

Gold tone accessories including Loree Rodkin jewels, Renee Caovilla heels, and Bottega Venetta purse completed her look.

Jennie Garth channeled old Hollywood with her wavy ‘do and vibrant orange Issa gown accented with a sparkling brooch.

She sparkled with silver accessories.

Kirsten Storms sported a wavy ‘do as she walked the red carpet wearing a Tadashi Shoji navy silk chiffon one shoulder gown with white silk organza rosette strap.

Her look was paired with a navy Kotur clutch.

Rachael Ray was one of the winners of the night.

She walked the red carpet wearing a plum draped halter dress with a gold coil neckline.  She was one of the few to opt out of wearing a gown.

Susan Lucci is very much the Queen of daytime soaps.

The Queen shone brightly as she sparkled in a coral embellished halter neck Zuhair Murad gown.

Gina Tognoni looked sensational in this raspberry bow tied gown with a ruffled cascading down the front of her gown.

Like the dress, but I’m not crazy the hair.

Marcy Rylan opted for the mothers-to-be favourite red carpet Peas In A Pod gown.

This rose gown with a rosette detail on the shoulder, was also worn by Kimora Lee Simmons.

Kristen Alfonso attracted me with her stunning electric blue one-shouldered gown.

The embellished neckline is also exquisite.

Nadia Bjorlin was oozing sexy glamour wearing a backless gown, with a gold embellished detail draping from her neck and down her back.

Taylor Spreitler’s fuschia pink one-shouldered gown was one of my favourites.

It’s’ simple, colourful and she didn’t over accessorize her look.

Michelle Stafford strapless floral black and white gown is beautiful.

I love any dress that give a woman this stunning Jessica Rabbit/mermaid silhouette.

Stacy Haiduk was the joker of the night as she carried a cat purse on the red carpet.

Supermodels On The Set Of “Gossip Girl” & “The Beautiful Life”

The cast of “Gossip Girl” is already incredibly glamorous, but recently supermodel Tyra Banks was on set with Hilary Duff filming scenes for the hit show at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York.

Tyra sported retro waves and large chandelier earrings whilst wearing a Marchesa Fall 2007 black gown with a beaded bodice.

Both Molly Sims and Ashanti have worn this gown on the red carpet.

Along with Valentino bags, Marchesa dresses seem to be favoured on the show as Hilary is wearing one from the Spring 2009 collection, and Leighton Meester wore a Spring 2008 ball-gown as Blair Waldorf to the Prom.

The second supermodel on set this week was Elle MacPherson.

She was shooting scenes on Mischa Barton’s new TV show “The Beautiful Life” in New York.

Sporting larger than life hair and black shades, Elle channeled her inner VB wearing Victoria Beckham’s ‘Carmontelle’ Fall 2009 dress with metallic heels.

This dress is the same dress Victoria wore on her ad shoot, and Leighton Meester wore on the set of Gossip Girl recently.

I feel a who wore it better on set? post coming up.
