“Still Standing” Promotional Tour – Monica In Alexander Wang & Balmain

It’s been a very busy week for Monica as the singer currently on a promotional tour for her new album “Still Standing” which was release yesterday.

Despite only being on sale for one day, she’s already on course to reach the #1 spot on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop chart this week.

The singer delighted fans with an in-store “Meet and Greet” in Atlanta yesterday.

With her trademark crop she wore an Alexander Wang belted cardigan from the Spring 2010 collection.

The cardigan has quilted leather trim at shoulders, which is the same detail that appears on the Alexander Wang dress Rihanna wore recently.

Monica also appeared on BET’s 106 & Park this week as a co-hosted with Terrence J.

The 29-year-old R&B veteran performed her new single ‘Everything To Me’ live on the show.

She sported an edgy look which included boots, lace-up leather pants and a Balmain denim jacket.

I’m sure Alex Curran already has this jacket in her closet.

Runway To 2010 The Maxim Party – Lauren Bosworth In Alexander Wang

The Maxim Party used to bring a lot of A-listers to the red carpet.

Now, not so much.

Audrina Patridge, Kristin Cavallari, Lauren Bosworth and Stephanie Pratt from the ‘The Hills’ walked the red carpet with 2 out of 4 of them doing predictable LBD thing.

Audrina used to bring it to these red carpet events, but here she just fades into the background.

Stephanie opted for a sparkling blue sequined skirt, but it was Lauren who stood out.

Lauren wore a taupe Alexander Wang Army cut-out dress with nude Louboutin’s and a matching clutch.

The look would’ve been sleeker without the necklaces.

She opted to wear her dress off-the-shoulder to try to make her look a bit sexier.

Runway To Pepsi Super Bowl Fan Jam Concert – Rihanna In Alexander Wang

In the US the Super Bowl will take place in Miami this Sunday.

After performing at the ‘Pepsi Super Bowl Fan Jam Concert’ in Miami last night Rihanna was spotted chilling out backstage.

She seems to be getting into the spirit of the upcoming event by donning an Alexander Wang Spring 2010 dress which appears to be football inspired.

The cute grey jersey mini dress has cut-out details at the waist and tan leather shoulders.

She paired her dress with leopard print Christian Louboutin heels which are similar to the runway heels, but she opted out of wearing the grey socks…thankfully.

“Cheryl’s Night In”

On Saturday night before the X Factor final on ITV, we got see more of Cheryl Cole on her one-off show “Cheryl’s Night In”.

She was still fighting for this love wearing her favourite Alexander Wang boots, she’d worn in her first performance on the X Factor a few weeks ago.

This time she swapped the military outfit for a pink ninja-style look.

My favourite look of the show as when Cheryl perform “3 Words” a duet with Black Eyed Peas rapper Will.I.Am.

She looked stunning wearing a her 3rd look from the Stéphane Rolland Fall 2009 Couture collection this year.

This black gown with a sheer yoke had a dramatic train which Cheryl used to full effect during her performance.

Last season Cheryl wore a pink Krystof Strozyna dress on the X Factor, so it wasn’t a surprise to see her wearing the same designer again.

Whilst Cheryl was being interviewed by Holly Willoughby wearing a teal Temperley London gown, Cheryl glowed in an orange and black Krystof Strozyna Spring 2010 pencil dress.

This digital print dress has geometric fabric panels which I absolutely loved.

Love her or loathe her, she’s given us some interesting fashion choices this year.

Alexandra Burke has worn many Emilio Pucci pieces.

When she performed her hit single “Bad Boys” on “Cheryl’s Night In”, she wore an exclusive ‘one-of-a-kind’ outfit designed by Emilio Pucci’s Creative Director Peter Dundas.

The white two piece was covered in studded eagle motif, which sparkled as she performed her energetic dance routine.

A big wow for Alexandra who after one year in showbiz already has big name designers making looks especially for her.

“St Trinian’s 2: The Legend Of Fritton’s Gold” World Premiere

All the girls from Girls Aloud are currently working on individual projects.

Cheryl Cole has the X Factor, Nadine Coyle owns a string of Irish pubs in LA, Nicola Roberts has her own make-up line, Kimberley Walsh has modeled for New Look, and Sarah Harding is trying to forge herself as an actress.

At the St. Trinian’s premiere in which Sarah stars, the singer/actress dazzled wearing a stunning black sequin Georges Chakra fall 2009 gown.

The gown is stunning from the front, and so very dramatic from the back with revealing panels, cut-out details and a flowing train.

Despite her being my least favourite of the group, I have to give credit were credit is due. She looks amazing.

A glam updo and bold red lips complete the look.

Sarah later changed into a pink strapless Atelier Versace Spring 2009 mini dress when she arrived back at her hotel.

She paired this stunning pink creation with Charlotte Olympia magenta laced slingbacks.

Gemma Arterton wore a black Alexander Wang slinky long goddess dress with Christian Louboutin Coussin caged ankle boots.

This is a great dress, but her messy hair puts me off.

A sleek updo like Sarah would’ve been much preferred.

Shingia Shoniwa continues to wow on the red carpet.

On this occasion she wore a hot pink Jean Pierre Braganza Spring 2010 backless cold-shoulder dress which has been worn by Cheryl Cole on  week 7 of the X Factor.

The Noisettes singer wears her dress with gold peep-toes and matching pink nails.

I feel a girl crush coming.

Nicola Roberts was one of my favourites on this red carpet.

The Girls Aloud singer supported her band mate at the premiere by arriving wearing a stunning cream dress with large appliqué flower detail which wrapped around her dress.

I just love those beaded embellishments adorning this amazing dress.

BDOTW contender.

Social Events Of The Week

33rd Annual Cairo International Film Festival (CIFF), Egypt

It’s been a while since we last saw Salma Hayek looking this fantastic.

The actress looked stunning at this event were she received an honorary award wearing a printed Balenciaga Fall 2009 gown.

I had hoped to see more from this collection on the red carpet, but Salma delights in her stunning gown version, which I prefer to the runway.

Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ Inaugural Governors Awards, LA

Ever since Cannes Film Festival Abbie Cornish just gets better and better for me on the red carpet.

I adore her in this Christian Dior lilac belted gown.

Her hair and make-up are gorgeous, her Neil Lane jewels are subtly beautiful and that clutch is divine.

Holt Renfrew Celebrates New Calgary Store, Canada

After two gowns Kristen Bell gives us a fresh sparkling Jenni Kayne Spring 2010 mini to get us in the to party mood for this weekend.

As always the blonde actress is flawless.

“The Blind Side” New Orleans Benefit Premiere

Sandra Bullock looked stunning wearing a purple striped Alberta Ferretti Spring 2010 gown.

I just wish she had smiled to help me love this look even more.

Fabolous’ Birthday Party, New York

Amber Rose usually over does it by wearing loud colours, or tacky tight ensembles but I’m totally in love with this Martin Grant Fall 2009 sculptured bustier.

Black velvet pants, YSL suede black heels and sunglasses complete her look.

2010 Pirelli Calendar Cocktail Reception, London

Daisy Lowe opted for a Jasmine di Milo Fall 2008 jumpsuit which is split to the thigh.

I love this look as it’s seductive without being too revealing.

The tights even work in her favour, as she looks like she’s wearing a full bodysuit.

NAC’s Medal of Honor for Film Award Presentation, New York

I’m not feeling this Alexander McQueen Resort 2010 look on Christina Ricci at all, and it has nothing to do with the tights.

The asymmetrical one-sleeved mini has a mish mash of colours I really don’t like, plus I don’t think the dress is particularly flattering on her.

Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Birthday Celebration, New York

I’ve loved this Alexander Wang corseted one-shoulder dress ever since I laid eyes on it.

Kim Kardashian does look good in this dress.

I love way the dress gracefully drapes her shoulder, but she’s a little bit too busty for the dress.

2009 MTVU Woodie Awards, New York

I’m also surprised we haven’t seem much of the Balenciaga Resort 2010 collection on the red carpet.

Jessica Stam opted to wear this orange belted mini with tight and a small patterned bag.

“The Princess And The Frog”, LA Premiere

It’s been forever since we last saw Anika Noni Rose on the red carpet, then she reappears at this premiere wearing the Thread Social asymmetrical dress I had added to my ‘favourites’ a few weeks ago.

I love the back of the dress with the unexpected double strappy detail.

Such a cute look to match that gorgeous smile.

“Me And Orson Welles” UK Premiere

Claire Danes’ Stella McCartney gown is very classic and simple with ruffle details.

Large silver earrings provides the sparkle.

Runway To X Factor Week 6 – Cheryl Cole In Alexander Wang & Richard Nicoll

For once I loved both of Cheryl Cole’s looks on the X Factor this weekend.

On Saturday night I instantly recognised Cheryl’s plunging Alexander Wang draped sequin mini dress, as I was cruising this same dress on Friday in Selfridges.

This dress much preferred to her Jean Paul Gaultier look of last week, which felt too old for her.

She looked stunning, happy – despite her reported marriage troubles – sexy, confident and I loved how her hair was pulled back to complete this sleek look.

Silver peep-toes complemented that massive rock on her finger.

This was my favourite look so far.

Although the big hair was back on Sunday with this look, I didn’t mind it so much as I wasn’t as over the top as we know Cheryl’s hair can get.

Her Richard Nicoll corset dress with gold panels had a futuristic feel to it. If Star Wars was made today I feel Princess Leia would love this dress.

After a few weeks of Danni being on top, this was very much Cheryl’s week.
