America Ferrera & Esquire Host A Save The Children Benefit & An Evening With “Ugly Betty”

America Ferrera & Esquire Host A Save The Children Benefit

The cast of “Ugly Betty” attended two events in New York City last night, but it was only America Ferrera – host of this benefit – who had two looks.

America walked the red carpet wearing a black Moshino safety pin-embellished crepe dress paired with gold peep-toes.

I love the stunning slim-fitting silhouette plus the safety pins and Swarovski crystals embellishments, but I’m not a fan of mixing metals.

My personal preference is that you either wear gold or silver, but it’s a minor detail when she looks this amazing.

Evening With “Ugly Betty”

Becki Newton looked amazing wearing a ruffled Prabal Gurung Fall 2009 sleeveless top paired with a striped tulip skirt from the same collection.

She took a night off wearing her favourite Jimmy Choo Karina studded shoe-boots and opted for a sexy black sandal.

Perfectly petite and polished as always.

Becki picked this look out a few weeks ago during New York Fashion Week when she visited the designer at his New York studio.

I don’t know about you, but I actually prefer this look on America Ferrera.

I adore her cropped pants and the 3/4 length sleeved jacket which nips her in at the waist to give her a streamlined silhouette.

It’s such a chic interpretation of a pants suit, that I wish to emulate this look as soon as I can.

Gold peep-toes and a white v-neck tee complete the look.

Vanessa Williams adds an interesting element to her asymmetrical LBD with two tone ankle strapped heels.

2009 Emmy Awards – Tantalising Teals

Katrina Bowden wore a custom-made teal gown by Christian Siriano.

Katrina loves Siriano gowns, as she has worn them many times before.

The strapless gown with the ruffled detail cascading from the hip is my favourite out of these looks.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus wore a teal Vera Wang strapless gown which was a fabulous colour choice for her.

Her look was paired with a stunning Judith Leiber gold and black box clutch.

Vanessa Williams always has such a presence on the red carpet.

She stood tall and beautiful wearing a teal Rafael Cennamo silk bustier bodice gown with a flowing skirt and chandelier earrings.

Vanessa Williams Hosts The Daytime Emmy Awards Wearing Gustavo Cadile

“Ugly Betty” actress Vanessa Williams hosted the 36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards last night.

Not only did she host, but she also sang and danced her way through the award show, reminding me that she can of course sing and she isn’t just an actress.

My favourite gown was a strapless maroon column gown from Gustavo Cadile Fall 2009 collection.

The colour and the complementary accessories make Vanessa sparkle, as the gown skims her stunning curves.

Other looks included an eggplant plunging gown with a black sheer overlay.

For a performance with dancer Gilles Marini, she changed into a shorter golden dress with an embellished neckline, paired with silver strappy heels.

Her outstanding moment came wearing a white figure hugging Herve Leger gown, with scoop neckline embellished with stones.

A fine host if I ever saw one.

Who Wore Balenciaga Better? Julianne Moore, Michelle Ryan or Vanessa Williams

Julianne Moore wore this hot pink Balenciaga pocketed wrap dress, back in October last year, when she attended her “Blindness” stage greeting, during the “Tokyo International Film Festival”.

As a red head, Julianne knows what colours suit her complexion, and magenta pink is one of them.

On Tuesday night, Michelle Ryan attended the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in London.

The actress collected her, ‘UK TV Actress of the Year’ award wearing the same pink dress, with a large statement necklace.

On the same day, Ugly Betty actress Vanessa Williams performed The Real Thing on Good Morning America, wearing the same dress, with black strappy sandals.

I’m not crazy about the fact that Vanessa wore a belt with a wrap dress, that never works for me. Michelle necklaces fails to make her look more interesting, so flawless Julianne wins this for me.

America Ferrera’s Gotham Magazine Cover Launch Party

America Ferrera looked gorgeous at the Gotham Magazine Party held in her honour last tonight.

The chic cover star wore a light blue cap sleeve Malandrino Resort 2009 dress, with a dramatic deep v-neck.

I love everything about this look. The colour, the collar, the plunging neckline, the interesting square panel that draws in her waist, her hair, and her make-up.

This is the best I’ve seen America look, for a long time.

Her gorgeous cast-mates were there to support her.

Becki Newton wore the 3.1 Phillip Lim winding zipper ruffle dress, which both Kate Bosworth and Lucy Liu have worn already.

The unique semi-sheer black dress has winding, layered metal zips from the collar to the hemline, which the star wears with black pointy pumps.

Despite this being a re-run, Becki still injects a bit of freshness to the dress.

Vanessa Williams continues her love affair with Matthew Williamson’s electric prints.

For this event she wore a Matthew Williamson Ambroise georgette dress. The striking silk dress has a low v-neck, cap sleeves, and tie at the waist.

I couldn’t find a full-length picture of Vanessa, but I’ll hope that she didn’t wear black heels with this dress, vivid yellow would have been awesome.

Vanessa looks flawless, and you can too if you buy this dress from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $1,225, or the international site for £575/€690.

03.04.09 Premiere

"Hannah Montana The Movie" LA Premiere

Normally there is always something I dislike about what Miley Cyrus wears, but on this occasion I can’t hate. I think it’s the right mix of her being stylish, young and fun. Something I don’t think I’ve ever said about her look before.

I’ll let you decided on the age appropriateness of this look, but for me it’s not too cheesy, she’s not 16 going on 30, and the leather jacket adds a bit of youth to her fringed teal Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 dress, with a fringed rope belt.

Oh Taylor, please rub off some of that tremendous style and grace you possess, to your BFF.

Taylor Swift stamps her claim for a a spot on the Best Dressed list, by arriving at the premiere looking outstanding in a black beaded strapless Naeem Khan Fall 2009 dress.

She completed her stunning look with Christian Louboutin Bow T Dorcet heels, and a black Mary Norton clutch.

It was Miley’s night, but Taylor stole her crown.

Emily Osment’s Faviana black one shoulder dress, has a floral embellishment which cascades down the front of her dress and across the bodice.

I do like the dress, as I’m impressed she carried off all that detail, but I really don’t think the shoes are a good fit.

Demi Lovato gets the prize for being the worst dressed at this event. The skirt of that dress looks like ringlets.

How very bizarre. Plus the make-up is not working for me either.

Vanessa Williams never lets me down. She wears another burst of colour on the red carpet with this sunshine yellow ribbed sheath dress.

Her turquoise necklace, nude heels and multi-coloured Carlos Falchi clutch complete the look.

Melora Hardin wore a spring chic Rafael Cennamo white v-front dress. The dress, which she wore with purple peep-toes, was embellished with a light blue floral belt.

She completed her look with an ostrich feathered Mary Norton bag with gold chain strap.

Teri Hatcher goes casual wearing a gorgeous pearl embellished tank with dark wash jeans.
