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.

2009 CFDA Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
Zoe Saldana continues to impress me. “Star Trek” has push her in the limelight, but her great choices in on the red carpet increase her star status.

Take this Calvin Klein Resort 2010 grey dress for example. It was plain and quite boring on the runway, but Zoe brings it to life.

She makes it sexy and sassy without much effort.

Did It Hurt When You Fell From Heaven? Award
*Sighs*

Could Anja Rubik be anymore beautiful? Anja and Halle Berry should be allow to walk amongst us normal folk.

The stunning supermodel arriving looking angelic wearing a white Kaufman Franco Fall 2009 one-shouldered gown.

She wore the gown without it’s ruffled detail on the behind, which showed how dangerously low the dress was cut.

On some Megan Fox this would have been deemed trashy, but on Anja *sighs* just damn sexy.

Best Use of Colour Award
There’s always a 50/50 split when it comes to Blake Lively.

I hope when you see her looking drop dead gorgeous wearing this neon pink Michael Kors Fall 2009 strapless sheath dress, more of you will be swayed to liking her.

Her twins aren’t on display, she looks youthful, vibrant and sexy.

What’s not to love?

Best Modification Award
Jason Wu really understood his muse for the night, as he took this sophisticated business-like runway dress and turned it into a sexy mini for Diane Kruger.

Diane would look great in a bin liner lets face it, but the colour, length, fabric and embellished embroidered shoulders really looks amazing on her.

I hate to be picky but I really wish she would change her hairstyle more often. I feel like we see this style a lot.

Model Magic Award
Many of you who loved the Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 collection were non to happy when Rihanna arrived at the Met Gala wearing a black suit from the collection.

Molly Sims should bring that enthusiasm back because she looked so cute and playful wearing a Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 strapless dress, with a Marilyn Monroe print emblazoned on it.

Risk That Paid Off Award
This is a rare red carpet outing for Kirsten Dunst.

The actress always opts for bold pieces which don’t always work, but on this occasion she looks amazing.

Rodarte is never a safe choice. The pieces are bold, edgy and dynamic plus you need the right kind of attitude to pull a Rodarte piece off.

She totally does with grey Nicholas Kirkwood heels.

Most Theatrical Award
At first I really disliked Doutzen Kroes in this red Zac Posen gown, mostly because I thought it was too grand for her. Plus I’m so used to seeing her in Herve Leger I didn’t quite think it was her style.

Then I realised how much better the dress looks without the gold belt, and appreciated the way she had made an effort to make the gown work for her.

Best Vintage Award
As much as I appreciate the Olsen twins picking interesting vintage pieces, I would love to see them in something off-the-runway more often.

Ashley Olsen wore an orange vintage gown with gold leaf embroidery around the shoulders. Her look was complete with Van Cleef & Arpels jewels and Versace heels.

Some might say it’s a little too big for her. I would say it’s better than a bandage dress.

Glorious Glow Award
Even if Heidi Klum wasn’t pregnant and wearing a silver crushed lame Michael Kors asymmetrical mini dress, she would still glow. So these added elements only make her more beautiful.

Her silver Christian Louboutin Anthracite Ole Ole heels and clutch matched her dress, but it’s her earrings I’m drooling over.

Best Black Award
Claire Danes is never one I can get excited about on the red carpet, but I do love her quiet elegant style. Some would call it boring, for me is very understated.

The actress looked elegant wearing a black Narciso Rodriguez embroidered black silk crepe gown which was cut low at the front and open at the back.

Best Legs Award
Model Hilary Rhoda arrived wearing a gorgeous one-shouldered Calvin Klein dress which showed off how incredibly long her pins are.

If you got it flaunt it honey.

Her look was completed with her hair pulled back in a tight bun and a VBH clutch.

Stepping Out Of Her Comfort Zone Award
Maggie Grace is usually very boring on the red carpet, so imagine my surprise to see her wearing this Christian Siriano Spring 2009 grey ruffled confection.

Every time I see a variation of this dress on the red carpet it’s belted.

It would be nice to see it without a belt if its worn again in the future, but the belt does work for Maggie here.

Best Accessories Award
Stylist Rachel Zoe arrived wearing a Louis Vuitton peachy gown, which I first thought was a Marc Jacobs gown as it resembles the finale gowns that were presented in the Spring 2009 collection, but her twitter message confirm that it’s Louis Vuitton.

Her golden accessories including a Louis Vuitton clutch, vintage Chanel earrings, plus Yossi Harari rings and bracelets.

Simple Yet Always Elegant Award
Kerry Washington has opted for a lot of bold choices lately wearing Louis Vuitton edgy ensembles, so it’s nice to see her bring her look back to a softer more elegant style we usually associate her with.

Last night she glowed wearing a silverly grey Doo.Ri Resort 2010 sleeveless gown with a plunging neckline.

Her jewels were also simple and she opted for a matching silver Swarovski clutch.

Best Embellishments Award
Whist Melissa George’s Nicole Miller gown has no shape, I am totally captivated by the embroidered crystals on her strapless gown.  Exquisite.

Black to Black Award
Yes I’m referring to Coco Rocha hair, which she debut on her blog a few weeks ago.

The supermodel wore an asymmetrical Michael Kors red Resort 2010 slide dress with a black print.

Her look was paired with a gold cuff, black strappy sandals and a matching clutch.

The Wow Moment Award
Comedian Tracey Ullman really shocked me when I saw her in this glorious red Doo.Ri gown with an asymmetrical neckline.

I don’t think I have ever seen her look so fabulous.

No BoHo Award
Finally Whitney Port has ditched that hippy chick look, for a fresh sophisticated look wearing a Luca Luca Fall 2009 halter gown.

The draped silver beaded gown sparkled so beautifully. She really out did herself here. I’m totally wowed by her

PaleyFest09 Presentation Of "The Hills"

I must say I’m starting to really dig Lauren Conrad’s style. Her red carpet looks have never blown me away, but this citronella 3.1 Phillip Lim tiered ruffle tank dress, is gorgeous.

Her tan accessories really perfect this look, and her lighter hair and nude tinted lips gives her a subtle glow.

After her grossly over prices collection has been put on hold, Lauren Conrad is now producing a range for discount department store Kohl’s. Some people are just born lucky.

Audrina Patridge wears a wide waist belt to nip in the waist of her Stella McCartney blue/grey one-shoulder dress, which she wears with her favourite Alexander McQueen bow clutch.

She gets plus points for everything apart from the hair. I love her as a brunette, and I’m just not in love with those highlights.

Whitney Port wore a typical Whitney-style boho inspired maxi.

I love the draped bodice and her honey-coloured hair.

Lo Bosworth would have got the thumbs up for this look, had it not been for the clutch.

Her jewel tone sapphire blue skirt, and turquoise top are a perfect combination, but that cyan coloured clutch clashes with the rest of the look.

Runway To Whitney Port To Net-A-Porter


Diane Von Furstenberg and Elle celebrated International Women’s Month, which was held in their boutique in West Hollywood.

Whitney Port attended wearing ballet pumps, navy skinny pants, a grey tank top and a Diane von Furstenberg Chefly sequined blazer, whilst carrying her favourite Gucci hobo bag.

The long sleeve double breasted jacket in all-over gold sequins, was presented during the Spring 2009 collection with a gorgeous maxi dress.

This is not an ordinary jacket. It’s your party topper with undeniable DvF charm.

Purchase it from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $795, or the international site for £776/€824.

“The Hills” Season 4 Finale


Does anyone know what Whitney Port’s official job title is at Diane von Furstenberg? Because I am starting to believe that she is there to show off Diane’s stunning designs on the red carpet. I want that job please.

The Hills/The City star wore a gorgeous eggplant maxi dress from Diane von Furstenberg’s Spring 2009 collection, which had pleats and a layered skirt


Whitney’s flower child look was complete with a cute hair accessory of silk flowers and feathers, as many of the models wore in Diane’s Spring 2009 show.

Best look of the night, so therefore Best Dressed Of The Week.


Just when I thought I was going to end the year with a compliment for Lauren Conrad, she gets it nearly right. This 3.1 Phillip Lim multicolored sequin dress needs a belt, the runway version proves that.

I will give her some credit for her hairstyle, as it’s different for a nice change.

She completes her look with gold heels.


Audrina Patridge is wearing a gorgeous wine coloured strapless Alexander McQueen Fall 2007 gown, which has been worn by Jessica Alba and Mary J Blige in green.

The colour is absolutely divine on her. Whitney just pipped her to the post for best look of the night.


Holly Montag has a lot to learn. The anchorwoman hair has got to go.

The Gucci Spring 2004 dress, itself is OK until you get to the sleeves, which I question why they are even there, because they ruin this dress on her, yet it works on the runway.

Nice ruby shoes though.


Do not adjust your screens, surprisingly this is the same dress.

I despise this woman, so I am glad I don’t have to say anything nice about her looking hideous in this Alexander Wang Resort 2009 dress.

Stephanie Pratt in an attempt to out do the others, tried too hard and is the worst out of the bunch.

The colour is so wrong for her, the hemline is all kinds of confusing and keyhole detail makes this dress look even more tacky.

If I was Mr Wang, I would be pi**ed.


Here is the worst of the rest.

It looks like Heidi Montag got an early Christmas present. Her boobs have definitely gone up another cup size or 3.

Heidi walked the carpet with her now husband, wearing a black shimmering fringed dress.


Lauren Bosworth wrapped up warm against the cold weather, but did briefly reveal her ensemble of a sparkly top and satin yellow high-waisted skirt from Forever 21 would you believe.
