Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Amber Heard attended a party hosted by Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution at the Fox Lot in Century City, California yesterday.

The party marks the culmination of Fox’s week-long LA Screenings events.

The blonde actress wore a 3.1 Phillip Lim patchwork lace dress from the Spring 2011 collection.

Her nude silk dress decorated with patchwork black lace was paired with Brian Atwood black pumps and a black clutch.

Amber looks stunning in this dress, but the runway heels were far superior to her footwear choice.

As the face for Avon’s newest fragrance Eternal Magic, Zoe Saldana attended the 2011 Avon Global Believe Tour in Chicago recently.

The ‘Avatar’ star looked adorable wearing a pink Nina draped pink dress from the Spring 2011 collection.

Her silk dress with pale floral pattern and four wide shoulder straps was teamed with nude Brian Atwood ‘Zenith’ ankle strap pumps.

A Dana Rebecca Design ring, red nails and rouge lip colour completed her look.

Zoe’s second look at the same event was a 3.1 Phillip Lim Pre-Fall 2011 cream and taupe print dress, with a bow detail on the draped skirt.

I will guess that she’s wearing the same heels with this look which is very summery for Pre-Fall.

Alexa Chung attended Mulberry’s star-studded VIP BBQ and Pool Party at this year’s Coachella Festival wearing an embellished 3.1 Phillip Lim silk dress with a black leather paillette panel.

The TV presenter relaxed poolside, pairing the dress with a gold necklace, Illesteva cat eye tortoiseshell sunglasses and 3.1 Phillip Lim two-tone black and tan sandals.

She completed her look with a hint of lipstick and blue nail polish.

The dress is definitely an interesting choice for a festival known to bring out more bohemian style choices (see Vanessa Hudgens and Isabel Lucas), so I appreciate Alexa’s different approach. She looks lovely but I don’t think that it works for a festival.

A few days later, fellow Brit Keira Knightley was photographed leaving the Comedy Theatre after her performance in ‘The Children’s Hour’ wearing the same dress.

Keira’s version has nude leather paillette panel which she paired with a added a dark grey blazer with a black collar. She also matched her brown leather Miu Miu bag to her brogues.

I love that Keira paired the dress with brown accessories and didn’t stick to basic black. The combination is unexpected but she definitely manages to pull it off.

I’m voting for Keira on this one. Even though Alexa looks great, I think the dress was the wrong choice for a pool party. I like that Keira chose contrasting accessories and think she pulls off that cool London girl look perfectly.

You can buy Keira’s version of this 3.1 Phillip Lim dress from Net-A-Porter US and Net-A-Porter International.

The 3.1 Phillip Lim presentation was another designer I had added to my New York Fashion Week schedule for the first time.

In describing this collection the designer said, “It’s about these chic women who ride bikes to work, to brunch, to a cocktail party.”

I don’t ride a bike but many pieces shot to the top of my wish list, as the designer showcased beautiful cropped pants, a wool anorak with black fur patch pockets and leather sleeves, a wool kimono sleeve jacket, a black jumpsuit with long beaded gold sleeves, colour-block pants and the final look was a sapphire maxi conical gown.

This menswear inspired collection consisted of oversized loose fitting easy wearable pieces. The outerwear really stood out with a mix of coats, anoraks and baseball jackets.

Key accessories included leather mules, scoop-front booties, cap-toe heels, oversize, square shades, briefcase-style bags and clutches.

Front Row: Richard Chai and Salman Rushdie yes Salman Rushdie

Favourites: Leather sleeved top with fern pants and taupe fold-over scarf jumpsuit

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Kate Bosworth, Leighton Meester, Ginnifer Goodwin and Maggie Gyllenhaal

This week Jérôme Lambert, CEO of Jaeger-LeCoultre officially presented Diane Kruger as the face of the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Lady Ultra Thin watch.

We see her sporting a casual yet chic look which included a 3.1 Phillip Lim tunic from the Holiday 2010 collection and black tapered pants.

I love the floral appliqué on her bibbed tunic as it very Diane with its whimsical antique feel.

A braided black and gold headband plus sleek black patent pumps completed her look.

At the 2010 Toronto Film Festival Rachel Weisz attended two premiere.

The first was “The Whistleblower” where she wore a gorgeous 3.1 Phillip Lim white mixed jacquard jumpsuit which had a cut-out at the back.

A Roger Vivier clutch and beautiful blown out tresses completed the look.

For the Black Swan Premiere she opted for a summery Oscar de la Renta Resort 2011 dress.

Her white silk faille dress with navy silk and white sequin embroidery and a scoop neckline was teamed with Stella McCartney shoes, and Roger Vivier Night Tube clutch.

It’s hard to pick a favourite out of these looks because they are both so fabulous and both so different.

I get a cool relaxed vibe from the Lim jumpsuit and a Park Avenue Princess feel from the Oscar de la Renta dress and they both work for me.

Can you pick a favourite?
