Runway To Nobel Peace Prize Award Ceremony – Michelle Obama In Calvin Klein

We have seen Michelle Obama wear many designers, but for the first time today she wore Calvin Klein.

This look was worn to the Nobel Peace Prize Award Ceremony, where President Barack Obama accepted the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize at the Oslo City Hall in Norway.

The First Lady wore a chartreuse laser cut velvet dress and laser cut velvet jacket from the Fall 2009, but her two piece were custom-made.

I love the look without the coat, in which she wears metallic kitten heels, a Nina Ricci cardigan *ducks* and a stunning necklace.

I know many of you hate her wearing cardigans at such formal event, so how do you feel about his look?

“Broken Embraces” New York Screening

On Penelope Cruz’ last red carpet outing she was head-to-toe in black.

This time she lightens up wearing an ivory Calvin Klein Pre-Fall 2009 look consisting of a full-length coat and 3/4 length sleeved velvet dress.

The colour is gorgeous against her olive skin and I love her glossy tumbling wavy locks.

I love it when Pen’s on top form, and this is one of those enjoyable occasions.

Printemps Christmas Window Display Launch, France

Natalia Vodianova can do pretty dresses, we all know that.

Here she proves she can look stunning wearing a navy blue Givenchy Fall 2009 suit.

The cut is exquisite and I love that she didn’t over accessorize this look.

‘Nine’ Screening, New York

I like Fergie’s Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 ensemble, and I don’t even mind the tights.

I just wish she’d loosen up that severe hairstyle, as it throws me off loving the look.

The Whaleman Foundation Benefit, LA

Sporting new bangs Hayden Panettiere looked stunning wearing an eggshell Tadashi Shoji Spring 2010 dress with an asymmetrical twisted neckline and a twisted detail on the skirt.

This colour shows off her year-round California tan.

I loved her gold trimmed accessories which included a Bally Agrippa-E clutch and Yves Saint Laurent Tribute suede sandals, which complimented her gold cuff.

“Star Trek” DVD/Blu-Ray Release Party, LA

After not being in love with Zoe Saldana last red carpet looks, she totally redeems herself wearing a Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2010 black and nude dress.

I’m loving those subtle animal print heels and that sheer draping neckline.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Nicole Kidman has been getting first dibs on all the L’Wren Scott Spring 2010 pieces, but Penelope got to pick this stunning black dress.

It’s simple, chic, shows of her stunning figure, plus I love the leather detailing on the shoulders.

I’m not sure why, but I’m currently obsessed with her glossy hair.

The Hollywood Reporter Honors Eva Longoria Parker With Philanthropist Of The Year Award, LA

Kate Beckinsale wears her second Andrew GN look this week.

Many of you said you find her red carpet style stale, boring, predictable and samey, but there’s not mermaid hem on this black long sleeved Andrew GN Spring 2010 dress.

Don’t you just love that silver beaded embellishment at waist which make the dress more interesting?

Grey YSL Tribute suede pumps and a black clutch complete the look.

I’m getting seriously worried that the current trend to apply a lot of white eyeshadow is catching on.

It’s very subtle on Eva Longoria, unlike Taraji P. Henson.

Eva was honoured at this event, walked the red carpet wearing a sexy red asymmetrical ruched Badgley Mischka Fall 2009 dress.

Unfortunately the hair and make-up puts me off loving this look.

Leona Lewis’ Album Celebration, LA

Oh Ciara. From the long shot and especially in the close up, all I can focus on are your goodies when I should be loving those delightful ruffled shoulders.

Sheer dress + no bra + flash blubs = exposure.

Celebrity red carpet dressing 101.

As much as I’m loving this new improved attitude from Leona Lewis, I’m not loving her obsession with those corseted belts.

It has worked on a few pieces, but on a Herve Leger bandage dress is just makes no sense at all.

Just don’t get me started on the ankle boots.

Social Events Of The Week

“In Bloom By Reese Witherspoon” Launch, New York

I was starting to believe L’Wren Scott was only made for Nicole Kidman and Kyra Sedgwick.

Reese Witherspoon has worn a lot of pretty dresses promoting Avon, and this dress continues that trend.

Wearing black pumps the actress wore a pretty hot pink L’Wren Scott black printed dress from the Spring 2010 collection.

It’s the perfect ‘ladies who lunch’ frock.

Cointreau Party, Brazil

Even though Dita von Teese’s Malandrino Fall 2009 metallic dress was presented in silver, the princess of goth of course opted for the black version.

She totally picked the right colour as this gown looks amazing on her.

I love the way it drapes on the hips.

Bruce Hoeksema Cocktail Party, New York

Gwyneth Paltrow is the first celebrity to wear a dress from the recently presented RM by Roland Mouret Spring 2010 collection.

She paired her navy and gold tiger print belted dress with a paired of the Christian Louboutin for Roland Mouret heels as shown on the runway.

As always she looks fabulous to me.  I know a few of you are very much over her.

Jimmy Choo Project Pep Launch Party, London

Tamara Mellon wouldn’t be caught out without her own accessories.

For the “Jimmy Choo Project Pep Launch” at Selfridges she modeled a Jimmy Choo Char Clutch and Jimmy Choo Pep Loop sandals, whilst looking stunning wearing a red Valentino dress accented with a bow on one side.

1st Annual Guggenheim Art Awards, New York

Kylie Minogue wore a nude coloured Calvin Klein Spring 2010 dress which looked stunning against her warm complexion.

Loving the soft make-up and matching accessories.

Julianne Moore appears to be a big fan of this Calvin Klein collection, as she has worn many pieces recently.

This time she opts for a simplistic grey dress, paired with black tights, black heels and a black clutch.

Switches On The Harrods Christmas Lights, London

Dannii Minogue has an J’Aton Couture obsession because she wore two dress by the design duo last weekend, and last night she donned another one of their creations to switch on the Harrods lights.

She looks so cute. I love the ruffled detail on the shoulder.

Music Unites Fall Masquerade Gala, New York

White was the colour of the night as Kerry Washington graced this event with her flawless beauty wearing a very girly Marchesa satin strapless dress with a structured tulle overlay and embroidered empire waist.

Her sassy dress was paired with a Marchesa clutch with a crystral clasp, which complemented her black peep-toes with a diamanté embellishment.

Georgina Chapman also opted for a white Marchesa dress, but her was completely made out of feathers.

The designer also wore a ring from her recently launch Garrard collection.

Fashion Group International’s 26th Annual Night Of Stars

It’s not often I’m wowed by Mary J Blige, but this is very much a wow moment.

The singer looked stunning wearing a black Gucci Spring 2010 halter gown with jeweled leather harness neckline detail.

Truly outstanding.

Potato sack is the first thing that springs to mind when I see Eva Mendes wearing her modified slouchy grey Calvin Klein Spring 2010 dress.

I personally preferred the dress on the runway, but it’s just not a red carpet look.

And as if the look wasn’t bad enough she adds shoe-boots to the mix.

Iman wows again for the 3rd time in a row wearing a dusty rose Michael Kors sparkler.

I say it every time, but its amazing how ridiculously gorgeous this woman looks every time she hits the red carpet.

Emmy Rossum’s blew me away looking spectacular wearing a draped golden Donna Karan gown which make her look like a Grecian goddess.

Evan Rachel Wood smoldered in a burgundy Gucci gown with antique gold fringe detail on on sleeve.

She looked poised and elegant with her hair swept back into an slick updo, pairing the gown with a gold python clutch with bamboo tassel detail to match her dress.

Gucci ‘s Creative Director Frida Giannini received a “Design Star Honoree” award at this event.

Wearing a self-designed Gucci mini dress paired with a Gucci clutch and Gucci Fall 2009 heels, she posed with James Franco and Mary J Blige who both wore Gucci.

A very demure Gwen Stefani wore a LBD  with a rise and fall hem, paired with YSL black patent Trib Two’s and her L.A.M.B clutch.

I was trying to work out what was so different about Gwen’s look, then it hit me.

She’s not wearing her trademark red lipstick, instead she opted for a nude shade.

Although I like this look, she has totally thrown me by being so unpredictable.

Dita von Teese was typically beautiful sticking to her trademark red lip.

The Burlesque beauty wore a black vintage gown, with a head piece by Stephen Jones.

16th Annual Elle Women In Hollywood Tribute

Zoe Saldana glowed as always wearing a Calvin Klein Spring 2010 ivory dress.

The dress which is gathered on the skirt to give it some shape was paired with gold accessories.

Jenna Dewan was one of my favourites on this red carpet, as she dazzled me wearing a stunning Edition by Georges Chakra Fall 2009 grey ombre dress with sequin bodice.

Black t-bar Louboutin’s and a black clutch complete this gorgeous look.

Theron’s mini me, Katie Cassidy looked sophisticated and demure wearing an ivory Lela Rose Spring 2010 halter dress which had a metallic silver print and waist band.

Her hair was loosely pulled back as she paired her dress with silver Jimmy Choo “Flynn” sandals.

Fabulous as always.

At first I didn’t quite like Juilanne Moore’s Calvin Klein Spring 2010 ivory, grey and black tank dress at first, but it’s slowing growing on me.

It’s not BDOTW worthy, but she makes it work for her.

I do love the texture.

Diane Kruger opted for a cute short sleeved Balenciaga blue, white and black printed dress with draping around the hips to define the waist.

I like the shape of her dress and the polka dot tights don’t bother me, but I so would’ve referred her to wear the runway version.

There has been a lot of rumors that Renee Zellweger and Carolina Herrera have parted ways, but this cherry red strapless pencil dress screams Carolina Herrera to me.

I love the bow detail on the back, which is accented with an gold jewel detail.

Becki Newton looks divine wearing a ivory corseted Dolce & Gabbana strapless dress with a flirty chiffon skirt.

I love her silver strappy sandals, but I’m drooling over her Chloe bow embellished clutch.

One of my many pet peeves are exposed bra’s – anywhere – this is not exclusive to the red carpet.

If Katie Holmes was going to show us her bra under her black sheer Azzedine Alaia ensemble she could’ve at least worn a push up bra.

Emily Blunt wore a nude tulle strapless Dolce & Gabbana nude strapless dress with a grosgrain waist belt tied into a cute bow.

Her accessories were very complementary to her look without being to matchy matchy.

Robin Wright Penn wore an Emporio Armani black tuxedo jacket and black satin skinny trousers, paired with open-toe Christian Louboutin heels.

I hope she reverts back to those wow-factor looks we saw from her at Cannes.

Dianna Agron wore a strapless D&G tulle dress with Burberry Prorsum platform heels.

These heels are so heavy for this pretty dress.

Brenda Strong’s black David Meister sheath dress is accented by an amazing crystal beaded neckline.

I could gush about that stunning neckline all day, as it’s so pretty.

Sofia Vassilieva looked so cute, in her age appropriate Ina Soltani white party dress with black leather strap details.

The lucky teen got to wear stunning Swarovski jewelry with her fabulous dress.

Another teen cutie Miranda Cosgrove wore a Vena Cava Mandala dress.

The two-tone crew-neck silk dress features a sheer chiffon yoke and asymmetrical metallic fringe and chiffon ruffles on the body.

I love the embellishments on this dress.

Cat Deeley normally always looks fabulous, but on this occasion she looks a hot mess.

Leave this look to those trashy D Listers Cat, you’re way better than this.

Whilst I don’t particularly have a problem with what Amber Rose to this event because she will never look anything but tacky to me, I did have a huge issue with her Ocotber Elle US magazine editorial which was more Maxim than Elle.

Of course it was style by Kanye West.

Elle, seriously, what were you thinking?

Calvin Klein Party

Kerry Washington always looks classy, and this time is no different.

The beautiful actress wore a white Calvin Klein Resort 2010 slightly off-the-shoulder dress which was sheer in some places, and had a peplum at the waist.

Kerry accessorized her look with bronze heels and a matching clutch.

Rose Byrne also opted for a dress from the Resort 2010 collection.

Her breathtakingly beautiful nude Calvin Klein off-the-shoulder dress subtly hints a nudity, without exposing anything.

I love the gold accessories which add a lot of warmth to her look.

This girl is on a roll a the moment. Long may it continue.

I love the lilac colour of Molly Sims’ ensemble.

She wears a round neck fitted Calvin Klein top, with a textured skirt from the Fall 2009 collection.

My only problem are those clunky Calvin Klein heels. A sexy strappy silver sandal would have been preferred.

Thandie Newton = perfection in Calvin Klein.

Sara Paxton wasn’t my favourite at this event, but being a newcomer she’s doing well on the red carpet.

Her black and navy sweetheart necklined dress was paired with black pumps.

I’m excited to see what else is to come from Sara.

10th Annual New Yorkers For Children Fall Gala

Selita Ebanks, Vice Chair of the New Yorkers for Children Gala looked amazing wearing a J. Mendel Spring 2010 citron draped gown.

I tend to associate Victoria’s Secret models with bod-con mini dress, but Selita temporarily blows that stereotype out of the water.

The model wore Slane & Slane jewelry and carried a Nancy Gonzalez clutch to complete her BDOTW worthy look.

It’s been a while since we have seen Joy Bryant on the red carpet, but during her time-out one this hasn’t changed.

Her love for Missoni.

At this event she wore a leaf print Missoni Fall 2009 stone silk dress with bold multi-coloured leaf print.

This is the perfect transitional look for fall.

Hilary Rhoda sparkled wearing a sterling silver ombre paillette halter Naeem Khan Spring 2009 dress with very deep plunge.

Matching strappy sandals and clutch complete this sexy look.

I wasn’t at all crazy about this Cavlin Klein Resort 2010 blue/grey off-the-shoulder dress when I saw it on the runway, but Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann injects a bit of personality and body into the dress to make it much more appealing.

Alina Cho wears a purple Oscar de la Renta pleated duchess satin gown which was my favourite from the Fall 2009 collection.

I was going to say I prefer the runway belt, but she is wearing the runway belt. The lighting makes them appear different.

Ines Rivero wears the same zebra print Naeem Khan Resort 2009 gown which Eva Longoria wore to Roselyn Sanchez wedding.

Mary J Blige wore a rose strapless crepe Gucci gown with bow detailing on the hip.

I love this colour on her, but as always the tattoos turn me off.

Her look was paired with a black python Gucci clutch.

Tinsley Mortimer is wearing my favourite colour of at the moment – electric blue.

Her dress was paired with a pair of grey heels.

I wonder if they will become her new favourites.

Calvin Klein Collection Boutique Launch At Saks Fifth Avenue

Melissa George looked so elegant wearing a black one-shoulder Calvin Klein Fall 2009 with black strappy sandals from the same collection.

Unfortunately you can’t see the details of her dress in this picture, but from the runway you can see the layered detail which snakes around the dress.

Minimalist is that foundation on which Calvin Klein was built on, so Melissa kept her accessory’s to a minimum with a silver box clutch, earrings and a single bracelet.

Elettra Wiedemann also opted for a no frills look, simply wearing a black asymmetrical Calvin Klein Fall 2009 dress with a textured single buttoned jacket.

Black boots and a black clutch completed this beautiful simplicity, but I would’ve loved a dab of colour on her lips like Melissa.

We have a result!!!

Alexa Chung has finally taken my advice and washed her hair. Now only if she could do this more often.

The MTV presenter would have stood out in a sea of black dresses wearing a red Calvin Klein Collection Terall dress.

I love this bright red dress, which is made more interesting with her stunning silver necklace

Geez woman lose those darn booties with every look.
