Runway To 2010 Asia Model Festival Awards – Han Chae-Young In 3.1 Phillip Lim

We’re yet to see the 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Spring 2010 collection on the red carpet, but thanks to Han Chae Young we finally do.

The leggy actress/model attended the “Asia Model Festival Awards 2010″ last week were she collected the ‘Model Star Award’.

She looked amazing wearing 3.1 Phillip Lim sculptural organza pleated dress with black and white sandals.

I love the dress. It kinda reminds me of Rodarte with the lace underlay and the pleated, tiered skirt.

What I also love about this look is her wavy pulled back hairstyle. We wouldn’t what her hair spoiling the view of this stunning dress.

This dress is currently available to purchase from Luisa via Roma.

I love the lace detail on the back.

Runway To The Pix Morning Show – Katharine McPhee In 3.1 Phillip Lim

Katharine McPhee is in full on promo mode as she continues to promote her new album “Unbroken”.

This week she was at “The Pix Morning Show” in New York where she performed her new single “Keep Drivin'”.

Her look is constantly changing.

She went from a very sophisticated Marchesa look on Conan O’Brien’s late night show, to a more laid back look for this morning show.

Her ensemble included ankle boots, patterned tights, a blue mini skirt and a 3.1 Phillip Lim ‘OK’ hand printed tee.

The look has a weird mish-mash of colours that surprisingly doesn’t offend me.

I was hoping stars would jump off the ankle boot trend in 2010, but I guess it’s here to stay for a while.

The stylish statement making tee was one of the many hand printed tees in the 3.1 Phillip Lim Resort 2010 collection.

This tee is available to purchase from Browns Fashion and Matches Fashion.com.

Who Wore 3.1 Phillip Lim Better? Jessica Biel or Mandy Moore

When Jessica Biel wore this 3.1 Phillip Lim asymmetrical gown with a twisted detail going down one side to the New York screening of “Easy Virtue” back in May, it has to be the only time this year I have actually liked what she’s worn on the red carpet.

For once she looked polished and sophisticated, sporting washed hair and make-up.

Mandy Moore arrive at the “USA Today Hollywood Hero Awards” in LA recently wearing the same dress in black.

She paired her black version with black strappy sandals and a black box clutch.

I admired Jessica’s effort and I much prefer the ivory runway colour, so Jess wins for me.

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.

Who Wore 3.1 Phillip Lim Better? Michelle Williams, Yoon-A or Vivica A Fox

Back in June Michelle Williams attended the “2009 Fresh Air Fund Salute To American Heroes” wearing this toughened-up prom style piece.

She looked angelic wearing the 3.1 Phillip Lim silk mini dress with sequin detail paired with metallic shoes to match the gold neck detail.

Yoon-A then sported a deep blue version of the same dress to the “46th Daejong Film Awards” in Seoul.

She too opted for a small angular clutch and kept her hair and make-up simple like Michelle.

Vivica A Fox is the third celeb to choose this 3.1 Phillip Lim dress.

She wore it to the opening night of the ‘Bel Air Film Festival’ this weekend.

Vivica’s rouge lips are a nice touch as are the gold tear-drop earrings she has on, but I’m not too sure about her white Christian Louboutin Maggie heels.

Michelle, Yoon-A and Vivica all look gorgeous, it’s a tough call. Michelle’s ivory version just about beats the blue for me.

I prefer that you can see more of the shape of the dress and see the quality of the fabric too.

The colouring suits Michelle’s soft features and blonde locks.

This dress is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter and Browns Fashion.

Malin Akerman wore a cute satin animal print Temperley London Resort 2010 dress, which was draped around the hips to add some texture and volume.

Black pumps complete the look.

Kristen Bell’s 3.1 Phillip Lim Resort 2010 lace dress has to be my least favourite of her “Couples Retreat” promotional tour.

The actress tried to punch up look with a fiery pair of red heels, but it wasn’t enough for me to like this look.

GNC for QuickTrim Launch, LA

Kim Kardashian looked fabulous wearing an Alexander Wang Tailored Metal-Stud Jacket paired with a simple white tee and black LnA Olivia knit ruched leggings.

She also added some YSL Divine ankle boots to her look, which have suddenly become very popular.

Madison & Diavolina Launch Party, LA

Mandy Moore’s red and multi-coloured printed silk dress reminds me of the same gorgeous print used in the Isabel Marant Fall 2009 presentation.

She looks so beautiful here.

With a black fur shrug, Fred Leighton jewels and roses in her hair the look was complete.

The supermodel added some glitzy jewelery to dazzling us with this sexy look.

Social Events Of The Week

Out & About in Double Bay, Sydney

Miranda Kerr was out shopping wearing an Isabel Marant Fall 2009 ensemble.

She combined a leopard print skirt, a boyfriend blazer and a grey sweater to achieve her off-duty look.

The manly boots are not what I would have worn, as they make her feet look really long.

It’s Y!ou Yahoo! Yodel Competition, New York

LeAnn Rimes is the 6th or 7th celebrity to have worn this Kimberly Ovitz Jacob jersey mini dress, but she’s the only one to have belted the dress.

It’s now the most worn dress on the red carpet, which really surprises me as I much preferred the Kimberly Ovitz Martin jersey cutout dress which was also favoured by AnnaLynne McCord and Olivia Wilde.

Philippe West Hollywood Opening Celebration, LA

Serena Williams wore navy patent heels and sheer shimmering tights with her 3.1 Phillip Lim beaded silk dress.

I don’t hate this look, but I’m sure some might argue her legs are too muscular for this dress but I would disagree.

My biggest problem is the champagne clutch.

Hammerstein Ballroom, New York

Kylie Minogue was greeted by her fans outside New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom were she has been performing.

The petite pop princess might have had a hectic schedule, but she wasn’t showing any signs of fatigue as she look beautiful wearing a YSL Fall 2009 grey jumpsuit, paired with a lace bandeau.

After the show she looked even better wearing a high-neck leather dress, paired with the same YSL Divine boots we’ve seen on Diane Kruger.

Ritz Carlton Hotel, New York

Jessica Simpson was spotted leaving her hotel in New York en route to the “FFANY Shoes On Sale” wearing a black belted coat from Stella McCartney’s Resort 2010 collection.

16th Annual QVC Presents FFANY Shoes On Sale, New York


When Jessica arrived at the event she whipped off her Stella McCartney coat to reveal a black and silver paillette covered Dolce & Gabbana LBD paired with a wrap-around black belt plus Debista 2 Pumps from her own footwear line.

Her hair was swept up into a messy up ‘do, whilst her eyes were sultry and smoky.

National Museum Of The American Latino Commission Press Conference, Washington

Eva Longoria wore a red Diane von Furstenberg sheath dress paired with nude pumps.

I would’ve never considered red and nude together, but it’s a very interesting colour combination.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Sienna Miller wore Pierre Hardy suede pumps paired a black harem pant jumpsuit with a bejeweled shrug.

I’m not particularly crazy about the top layered part of the jumpsuit, but she looks beautiful as always.

2009 MAD Paperball Gala

Rose McGowan matched her bright red lips with her red structured bow accented top and a black mini skirt.

Her vintage Bill Blass ensemble certainly has the wow factor.

“Coco Avant Chanel” Japan Premiere

Only Audrey Tautou can take something that’s already chic and elegant and make it even more chic and elegant.

Her style is second to none. I just love the simplicity of everything she wears.

She removed the white ruffles from the Chanel Fall 2009 skirt suit, ditched the tights, and had the upside down v-panel stitched to her skirt.

I love the satin black top, and the way her cropped jacket is turned up on the sleeves to reveal a satin lining.

She’s definitely in contention for BDOTW.

Kyoko Uchida joined Audrey on the red carpet.

She sparkled wearing a 3.1 Phillip Lim beaded silk flapper dress from the Fall 2009 collection.

Her navy version of the runway dress has a scooped neck, three-quarter length drape-detail layered sleeves, a scalloped trim, and an embellished front.

Black boots, a black bangle and tights complete this cute look.

This dress sold out instantly when it was uploaded onto Net-A-Porter last week.

At the press conference earlier today Audrey gave us a typically Chanel black and white look.

She paired a black leather skirt, with a white lace flutter sleeved top decorated with black ribbons and black patent pumps.

I’m not a fan of lace, but I do love this look, especially the light make-up.

Tres chic.

Social Events Of The Week

“Answer The Call” Charity Concert – Press Conference, New York

Beyonce Knowles looks cute and fresh faced in her all black ensemble, which includes a 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2009 zipper skirt.

I think she could have worked this look without the belt.

“Funny People” Madrid Photocall

After Leslie Mann’s previous red carpet appearance wearing a dark olive Marni dress, she lighten things up for this photocall wearing a floaty and playful Jason Wu Resort 2010 mini chiffon dress.

What a way to get back on track.

The actress paired tan sandals to match her tan belt.

The NASDAQ Closing Bell, New York

Amber Valletta enviably tall and slender frame mean she can pull off difficult shapes with ease, hence being a supermodel.

I love her colour blocked combination of her blue silk Jenni Kayne roll sleeve tank paired with Jenni Kayne black high waisted pants.

That blue is just drawing me in like a magnet.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

I’m always rooting for Rumer Willis.   She often lets me down, but not on this occasion.

Her white Zac Posen cut-out dress was quite sophisticated and she looks really comfortable for a change.

She seems to be favouring Zac Posen at the moment, as this is the second dress she has worn by the designer in consecutive red carpet appearances.

Her look was paired with Sergio Rossi Marisa pumps, which also have a side cut-out detail.

NIKE And The CW Celebrate The Launch of Season 2 of “90210”, LA

All can I say about AnnaLynne McCord’s look is WHY?

This is not the AnnaLynne I know and love.

Jessica Lowndes gives us a pop of colour with bubblegum pink lipstick.

The Hollywood staple ankle boots and a little black lace dress complete the look.

“The Descent Part 2″ Premiere, London

Actress Shauna Macdonald attended her “The Descent Part 2″ premiere in London this week.

I’m the only one slight freak out by the fact that Shauna Macdonald – who is 7 months pregnant – is wearing a bandage dress?

Is that even safe? *winces*
