9th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation’s ‘An Enduring Vision’ Benefit – Christina Ricci In Alberta Ferretti

In New York City last night Christina Ricci attended Elton John’s ‘An Enduring Vision’ benefit for his AIDS Foundation to show her support for the campaign.

Christina gave us yet another summery dress with Fall heels.

Her gorgeous pale green Alberta Ferretti Spring 2011 chiffon strapless dress has a beautiful cascading ruffle.

Her look was complete with bold red lips, a black Tiffany & Co Camille clutch and YSL pumps.

I’m not sure if it’s the pose, the fit or the accessories but something isn’t quite working for me.

I love the dress, but I prefer Christina in edgier more complicated looks.

“Time Stands Still” Broadway Opening Night After Party – Christina Ricci In Alberta Ferretti

In New York City last night Christina Ricci attended the “Time Stands Still” Broadway Opening Night After Party.

We are very used to seeing actress in LBDs, but on this occasion she opted for one with a touch of sparkle.

Her Alberta Ferretti Fall 2009 high-neck dress has an embellished shoulder detail.

The dress is shorter than it appears on the runway.

Judging by the way the dress has changed shape on Christina who has a much smaller frame than the model, this was a great idea.

Had she kept the original length, the dress may have looked a tad matronly on Ricci.

Those YSL Trib Two’s and a black clutch complete the look.

2010 Pusan Film Festival – Tang Wei In Alberta Ferretti & Lanvin

Tang Wei also opted for a breath-taking gown for the opening ceremony of the 2010 Pusan Film Festival in Seoul yesterday.

Her ivory Alberta Ferretti Fall 2010 gown has cascading crystal embellishments which drape around the neckline and bodice.

I would’ve preferred her in the runway colour, but she looks beautiful nonetheless.

She adds just a simple cuff to complete her look.

For the “Late Autumn” photocall today, Tang Wei wore a grape Lanvin one shoulder drape dress from the Fall 2010 collection.

I love her hair down with this cape-like design dress, but I’m not too keen on her shoe choice.

Alberta Ferretti Spring 2011

This afternoon the Alberta Feretti’s Spring 2011 presentation transported me to a meadow on a hazy sunny day.

Think the opening sequence on ‘Little House of the Prairie’ or the Timotei and Cadbury’s flake ads.

Models in gladiator flats walked the runway in a selection of summery pieces we could wear right now on a very hot day in Milan.

We’ve seen a lot of flats this season. It’s about time they came back into fashion.

The romantic collection presented us with chiffon ruffled dresses, floral maxi dresses, shorts, cool blazers and blouses with large embroidered sleeves.

There were many crochet pieces included bloomers, sweaters and bralets.

The neutral colour palette was warmed with some delicious caramel pieces, plus forest green and mustard yellow also featured.

Apart from the gladiator flats, the other key accessory was the wide brim straw hat.

The models sported tousled hair as if they had been rolling around in that meadow I was dreaming about.

Favourites: Mustard maxi dress over the crochet two-piece and anyone of the dreamy floral dresses

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Penelope Cruz, Diane Kruger, Christina Hendricks, Thandie Newton Ellen Pompeo, Anna Hathaway, Lea Michele, Michelle Yeoh and Jessica Biel

2010 Venice Film Festival “Reign Of Assassins” Premiere – Michelle Yeoh In Alberta Ferretti

Michelle Yeoh looked radiant on the red carpet at the “Reign Of Assassins” Premiere during 2010 Venice Film Festival on Friday night.

She wore a green Alberta Ferretti Resort 2011 one shoulder dress.

Michelle tends to wear a lot of neutral colours, so it was refreshing to see her in green.

Her dress with a draped shoulder detail was paired with a gold Ferragamo clutch, stunning Boucheron ‘Louise’ pendant earrings, a man-size watch and gorgeous Atelier Versace Spring 2010 Couture heels.

Magnificent as always.

2010 Venice Film Festival “Somewhere” Premiere – Andrea Osvart In Alberta Ferretti

Andrea Osvart looked divine at the “Somewhere” Premiere during 2010 Venice Film Festival on Friday night.

The Hungarian actress glided down the red carpet looking sensational wearing an Alberta Ferretti Fall 2010 gown.

I’m so glad to finally see this black gown with a nude silk underlay on the red carpet.

I loved the ruffled neckline.

Thankfully she didn’t over accessorize this look, but I wish she’d given someone her bag and pashmina for the photo op.

2010 Venice Film Festival Opening Ceremony & “Black Swan” Premiere – Jo Champa & Violante Placido In Alberta Ferretti

Alberta Ferretti always has a strong showing on the red carpet at European Film Festivals, and last nights 2010 Venice Film Festival “Black Swan” Premiere was no exception.

Whilst model Elisa Sednaoui wore a look from Alberta Ferretti’s Special Gown collection.

Violante Placido and Jo Champa both wore looks from the Alberta Ferretti Resort 2011 collection.

Actress Violante Placido wore a blush chiffon Alberta Ferretti Resort 2011 gown which is a divine colour on her.

I prefer her thinner waistband to the models and I adore her gold accessories which include a gold Ferragamo minaudiere.

I’m not so keen on the cuff, but when her gown, hair and make-up are this gorgeous that is easily brushed aside.

Actress Jo Champa opted for an Alberta Ferretti white silk chiffon Resort 2011 gown.

I really love the poufy sleeves and the chantilly lace which decorates her décolletage.
