US Weekly’s Hot Hollywood 2009

I’m not so crazy about Kristin Cavallari’s hair and make-up, but I did like her ensemble.

‘The Hills’ star wore a black Dolce & Gabbana bustier paired with a Chanel belt and a 3.1 Phillip Lim zipper skirt from the Spring 2009 collection.

Stephanie Pratt sparkled wearing a blue sequined French Connection dress which makes her baby blues pop.

She paired her stunning dress with a navy blue clutch and YSL Trib Two’s.

This has to be one of Stephanie’s best red carpet looks. She really stepping things and becoming more polished.

After a few red carpet appearance sans tights Leona Lewis wears them on this occasion.

The star opted for a colourful sequined Catherine Malandrino skirt which she paired with a black top and Vivienne Westwood lilac Lady Dragon heart slingbacks.

I’m not at all fond of this look and its the top that’s at fault.

Everything else feels so well thought out, but the top feels like it was thrown on at the last minute.

After a summer flirtation with being blonde, Audrina Patridge returns to her luscious brunette locks.

The reality tv star wore a silver Rachel Roy dress and grey YSL Trib Two slingback heels.

I love the way the pockets drape which adds plenty of flair to this Rachel Rachel Roy number.

She look so beautiful.

Monique Coleman opted for a bold chartreuse colour which she loved showing off on this red carpet.

Whitney Port still hasn’t worn her Whitney Eve Spring 2010 collection.  Maybe she’s just waiting for Spring to arrive before she starts wearing it.

Instead she wore a delicate vintage dress paired with Guiseppe Zanotti gold heels to this event.

Like Stephanie, Karina Smirnoff also wore a French Connection dress, but hers was classic black with a asymmetrical front ruffle to add a bit of flair.

What I love most about this look is Karina’s Miu Miu heels which are to die for.

Social Events Of The Weekend

Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival, Florida

Michelle Monaghan was honoured with the “Rising Star on the Horizon Award” at this Festival whilst glowing in a RM by Roland Mouret Traverse wool shift dress.

She paired with black strappy sandals and a gold clutch.

This is such a sophisticated look for the beautiful actress.

Black Eyed Peas Official After Party, LA

Fergie opted for a one-sleeved Gucci Fall 2009 black and silver tunic dress.

She wore her dress with the popular Gucci Division over-the-knee boots which celebrities have fallen in love with.

2009 Environmental Media Awards, LA

Olivia Wilde looks outstanding wearing a Stella McCartney stretch lace panel dress.

I love the way she wore her hair back so we can see all the detail on her stunning dress.

Normally I’m wowed by Katie Cassidy on the red carpet, but not so much on this occasion.

She still looks great in her white and black printed one-sleeved Loeffler Randall dress, but the Guiseppe Zanotti booties don’t work for me.

She completed her look with a Christian Louboutin Loubistuds clutch.

Ginnifer Goodwin wore a very pretty white strapless 1 OAK dress made from recycled materials, which she paired with contrasting accessories including a black ribbon belt, a black clutch and grey Stella McCartney heels for a prim and polished look.

Jet Nightclub At The Mirage, Las Vegas

Whitney Port looked gorgeous in a coral patterned Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 dress with a high neck and ultra short hem. I love the dress, but when is she going to wear something from her own Spring 2010 collection?

The host of this party paired her dress with sparkling Giuseppe Zanotti jeweled sandals.

“LC by Lauren Conrad” Kohl’s Launch Party

Yesterday Lauren Conrad launched her new contemporary clothing brand, LC Lauren Conrad at Kohl’s Department stores and on Kohls.com.

The collection included jeans, dresses, tops and bottoms at afford price points.  My favourite piece is the watercolour ruffle dress which is currently on sale for $41.99.

At the launch party Lauren Conrad wore her hair tied back in a slick pony-tail to create a different look, but I still found myself bored by the black oversized sweater dress.

The kick-ass Givenchy heels perked me up a bit.

Lauren Bosworth supported her friend at this event.

She arrived wearing a Topshop sequined vest paired with a navy suit suit.

Her dark accessories completed the look.

Whitney Port opted for leather shorts and a cute 3/4 length sleeved top.

I loved the pink Chanel bag, but I wasn’t so crazy about the leopard print ankle boots.

2009 VH1 Divas

For the love of god, can someone PLEASE, Please, please help this girl.

Even if you take her to Topshop, just so she can see what girls her age wear.

What the fudge is she wearing?

The runway version of her Dsquared² Fall 2009 was not hiked up to the thigh displaying fish-net tights.

There is no need for all the modifications.

When Selena Gomez is getting it so right, Miley gets it so very wrong.

Another red carpet event, and another missed opportunity for Whitney Port to promote her own Spring 2010 collection.

This time the designer opts for a La Perla Spring 2009 black chiffon dress with nude underlay and jeweled shoulder detail. *shudders*

What was she thinking?

Hopefully not that this is a good look, because she would be wrong.

Finally a Kelly Clarkson look I really love.

The singer wore a stunning black velvet one shoulder David Meister gown with feather corsage.

Everything works.

It looks like Whitney Port can’t even get her BFF to wear her Spring 2010 collection, which is not fair as Whitney wore Lauren Conrad Collection several times.

Lauren Conrad wore a green sequined Alice + Olivia dress paired with black satin peep-toes.

I do like this look, surprisingly it’s not boring.

Jennifer Hudson proudly shows off her post-baby figure wearing a figure hugging metallic dress with thigh-high boots.

Love Leona Lewis’ lilac off-the-shoulder Halston gown, but I absolutely hate the black Vivienne Westwood corset.

So unnecessary and makes this a waste of a stunning gown.

Jordin Sparks’ dress lack any.

Sparks that is.

Sheryl Crow opted for a red satin Dolce & Gabbana dress with black tulle overlay with a black waistband.

We normally see more colour or a rocker look from Sheryl, so this is a refreshing change.

“Goin’ to the chapel and we’re gonna get married”.

Toni Braxton’s white gown is too bridal for my tastes.

TV personality Kim Zolciak gets herself notice wearing a Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 dress as worn by Madonna.

UK singer Adele wore a black Barbara Tfank dress which had gold ribbon embroidery.

14.09.09 Worst Dressed

2009 MTV Video Music Awards – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
Amber Rose wore a snake-print long sleeved jumpsuit.

Enough said.

Most Predictable Award
After sitting front row at the Herve Leger show earlier this afternoon in a pink Herve Leger dress, Amanda Bynes doesn’t let us down.

LBD + Trib Two’s = yawwwwnnnnnn.

Most Ill-Fitting Award
Beyonce Knowles is wearing a pretty dress, but the skirt looks way too tight. The detail on the front is only adding to this problem.

What is it with Britney and Beyonce and this need to wear clothes that just don’t flatter.

Worst Brand Ambassador Award
I know Christopher Kane is really hot right now as we’ve seen similar versions of this black tulle skirt with velvet spiral trim in the past week. But shouldn’t Whitney have used this opportunity to promote her own debut collection she presented just 2 days ago?

Just asking.

It’s Lauren Conrad Collection all over again.

I Tried To Love It, But I Can’t Award
I didn’t like this Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 dress the first time we saw it on the red carpet, and Jennifer Lopez does nothing to change my mind.

I love that she’s not being predictable, but I’ve never liked this dress.

The singer pairs her dress with Christian Louboutin peep-toe lace ankle boots, with a leopard print heel.

Oh The Irony Award
Ashley Greene was the fashion correspondent for the night, which I found totally ironic considering how bad I thought she looked.

She arrived wearing this D&G gold skirt and a black strappy corset with ruffled edges, but later changed into a worse red skirt which bunched up like Beyonce’s.

I also really hated her gold skirt white clutch combo.

Ashley has to be the worst fashion correspondent ever, as she only asked Taylor Lautner what he was wearing despite interviewing Jennifer Lopez and Leighton Meester.

Worst Hair Award
Why do I always get a sense that Lauren Conrad just isn’t trying?

The dress is pretty if you like middle of the road on the red carpet, but the hair is just atrocious.  It ages her dramatically.

Worst Balmain Award
Despite us all laughing at Pink and Shakira’s expense for wearing the same Balmain dress on the red carpet tonight, Pink didn’t do this dress any justice.

For me it makes her look even more boxy.

Whitney Eve Spring 2010

Whitney Eve was the debut collection for “The City” star Whitney Port.

In the programme notes she said the inspiration was Alice in Wonderland goes to a cocktail party.

I expected boho chic as that’s the look Whitney loves, but I was presented with sugary sweet pieces which I’m sure her fan base will love.

Kimono dresses, Grecian dresses, gold metallics, candy coloured two-piece ensembles,suit jackets, playful strapless dresses with tulle and frilly blouses, glittery halter dresses and satin body suits were presented.

Click here to view the whole collection.

I expected BFF Lauren Conrad to be in the front row to support her friend, but she was a no-show.

Charlotte Ronson, Olivia Palermo, Jay Lyons, and Allie were all in the front row to support their co-star.

Kelly Cutrone worked the show co-ordinating the production, and I’m sure she was very proud of Whit.

Louis Vuitton Celebrates The 40th Anniversary Of The Lunar Landing

For once I don’t smell any desperation with Cassie’s look, and I’m just grateful she’s wearing a bra under her sheer top.

The wannabee style maven wore a black and green Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 tulip skirt with gold Christian Louboutin open toe booties.

The only thing I’m not liking are the bubblegum pink nails as they’re distracting.

When this Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 dress was presented it was labeled the ‘bin-liner’ dress, and I was sure no one would be brave enough to wear it on the red carpet.

I’ve been proved wrong for the second time, as Estelle looked pretty damn fierce in her dress.

The only thing needed with this dress were a pair of statement heels so her stand-out fuchsia pink Alexander McQueen heart peep-toe heels were a perfect choice.

Whitney Port is very much starting to dress like a sophisticated New Yorker. Gone is the boho style she loved for so long.

“The City” star was back in town after a break from filming and she looks quite breath-taking wearing a LBD from the Rachel Comey Spring 2009 collection.

The dress has cut-out sides and peplum on the hips.

It looks like she has been hanging out with Olivia Palmero too much, as her hair has been styled in Olivia favourite look.

A stunning pearl Erickson Beamon necklace and Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toes completed this fabulous look.

“Gossip Girl” actress Jessica Szohr wore a cute and girlie lace mini dress from the Gossip Girl inspired Anna Sui for Target collection, but she toughened up her look with a military Temperley London jacket and chunky jewelery.

Like everyone else who wore at least one thing from LV, Jessica opted for the Fall 2009 platform heels.

There’s lot going on with the mix of patterns but I quite like this look.

Miranda Kerr embraced summer wearing a sleeveless satin dress with oversized ruffles.

She teamed her dress with black ankle-strap peep-toe heels and a gold Louis Vuitton African Queen clutch.

Who Wore Pamella Roland Better? Carrie Underwood or Whitney Port

As many of you correctly pointed out Carrie Underwood was the first to wear this gorgeous black sequined Pamella Roland Spring 2009 mini dress with silver sequined circles and bell sleeves when she attended the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Party.

Silver accessories including earrings, a silver clutch and strappy sandals complemented her dress.

Whitney Port wore the same dress recently to the “I Love Gen Art” 15th Anniversary Benefit in New York.

Whitney wore less bling, just a simple ruby ring.

As much as I dislike Carrie’s hair, I hate Whitney’s choice of pumps with this dress so Carrie wins for me.

Social Events Of The Week

I Love Gen Art: 15th Anniversary Benefit, New York

Whitney Port channeled a swinging 60s look wearing a gorgeous black sequined Pamella Roland Spring 2009 mini dress with silver sequined circles and bell sleeves.

The shoes really let her down, but everything else works for me.

Audi TDI Dinner, LA

Miranda Kerr stepped out with her beau Orlando Bloom looking very summery wearing a nude bandage dress from the Stella McCartney Spring 2009 collection, which complemented her nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

Her look was complete with a crisp white blazer and a Prada lace bowler bag.

“Hung” Series Premiere, LA

I adore the vivid raspberry colour of Perrey Reeves’ silk one shoulder Reem Acra Resort 2009 dress which drapes so elegantly.

Jimmy Choo Flynn mirrored leather sandals complete this stunning look.

Anne Heche wore a black Paule Ka dress with a stunning silver necklace which really brought life to her look.

Black Jimmy Choo platforms completed her look.

Dsquared2 Menswear Show, Milan

Kelly Osbourne goes for a sophisticated look wearing a cobalt blue voluminous shift dress paired with studded Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

The star kept her punky blonde crop slicked down to complete the look.

AXE Instinct Power Of Leather Launch Party, New York

Ashlee Simpson she shows off her figure in a mirrored silver mini skirt teamed with a black sweetheart Ina Soltani bustier corset top and sexy gladiator heels.

“Tetro” Madrid Premiere

Without even trying Maribel Verdu oozes sexy sophistication in her LBD which she wears with YSL criss cross heels.

“Public Enemies” LA Premiere

This is not my favourite look for Rosario Dawson.

The Dries van Noten mosaic print dress is so shapeless and unflattering on her.

35th Annual Saturn Awards, LA

Kristen Bell’s dress has far too much going on with the fringe and the criss cross bolero.  This has to be one of her worst ever red carpet looks.
