2010 Cannes Film Festival: “Biutiful” Premiere – Kate Beckinsale In Balmain

Kate Beckinsale surprised me as she arrived on the red carpet for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of “Biutiful”.

The British actress opted for a Balmain Fall 2010 dress which is very much out of her comfort-zone.

She usually likes the glide down the red carpet like a fairy princess, but on this occasion a black sequin dress with a thigh-high split and a wide gold studded belt was preferred.

The dress is great, but had she pulled her hair back into a tight pony instead of the girlie up do, she would’ve got top marks for me.

Her incredibly heavy pumps also don’t sit too well with me.

I would’ve liked to have seen her come out of herself more with sexy-edginess of this dress.

This could’ve been a wow moment.

2010 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner – Kristin Davis In Balmain Couture

Kristin Davis looked exquisite when she walked the red carpet at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington DC last night.

The “Sex And The City” actress wore a 1969 Pierre Balmain Haute Couture evening gown from Decades Inc.

Kristin knows what flatter hers figure, and this white silk faille A-line evening gown is no exception.

I’m particularly taken by the beaded embroidered top half. It’s bedazzling without being garish.

She paired her look with a gold clutch, studded diamond earrings and platinum heels.

This is Balmain done beautifully.

She’s already in contention for BDOTW.

“The Losers” LA Premiere – Zoe Saldana In Balmain

Zoe Saldana continues to spoil us by giving us another perfect 10 on the red carpet at “The Losers” LA premiere last night.

I think we’ll all have serious withdrawal symptoms if she ever disappears from the red carpet, because no one else is knocking it out the ball park, whilst hitting 3 pointers and scoring numerous touchdowns like she is.

In short she is the red carpet MPV – ‘Most Valuable Player’.

I love her.  She can do no wrong.

The actress looked stunning in her black suede Balmain suede dress from the Fall 2010 collection.

The dress has two buckle straps on the right hip, a sexy split and a jagged hemline.

As much as I love the dress, I’m floored by her accessories.

Firstly those Cesare Paciotti booties are to-die-for.

I wonder how many rent payments I would have to skip for those to be mine.

The runway gold studded belt is complemented with a gold Judith Leiber clutch and a stand-out Neil Lane gold ring.

The first serious contender this week to challenge Jennifer Lopez.

“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.

04.03.10 In Her Closet

Guess Who Dropped £3,000 On Another Balmain Jacket?

Yep, it’s Alex Curran again.

That takes her Balmain shopping total to around £40,000.

The WAG was seen shopping in Liverpool recently wearing her latest addition to go shopping.

I much admit I do love this Balmain tweed jacket which she pairs with Topshop panelled zip leggings and studded ankle boots.

She may have horrible dress sense, but she sure knows how to shop, but being a WAG it’s part of her job description.

Runway To 60th Sanremo Music Festival – Jennifer Lopez In Balmain

Now that New York Fashion Week, the BAFTAs and the Elle Style Awards is over, I can catch up on all the other looks I missed last week.

Jennifer Lopez attended the 60th Sanremo Song Festival in San Remo, Italy last week where she performed for a pack audience.

The singer appears to have fallen in love with Balmain, because this is the second look from the Balmain Spring 2010 collection she’s worn whilst performing.

The first one was way too tight, but this military jacket fits her nicely.

As much as I like the Balmain jacket with the gold fringed epaulets, the whole look feels a bit dated.

This is mostly due to those 2000-and-late shredded skinny lack black jeans which Rihanna and half of young Hollywood wore on a daily basis last year.

As someone pointed out recently, the only person really doing justice to Balmain at the moment is Celine Dion, who may have been one of the first celebrities to discover the brand.

Style wise JLo always seems a step behind everyone else at the moment.
