2010 Met Costume Institute Gala – Melania Trump In Christian Siriano & Ivanka Trump In Atelier Versace

Both Trump ladies looked stunning at the Costume Institute Gala last night.

Melania Trump looked amazing wearing a Christian Siriano custom-made gown.

The royal blue gown has a draped bodice and a skirt full with tucks and gathers creating a cascading wave.

The dress is very sculptural, but also very romantic.

Manolo Blahnik shoes, a Rodo clutch and Harry Winston jewels completed her look.

Ivanka Trump wore an Atelier Versace gown.

Her beaded lilac gown had a silk chiffon beaded petal train which she wore with silver Versace sandals.

She of course finished her look with her own Ivanka Trump jewels.

2010 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards – Miranda Cosgrove In Christian Siriano

Falling Perfectly Award
Miranda Cosgrove opted for an autumn plum colour on the red carpet at the 2010 Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards yesterday.

She wore a Christian Siriano Fall 2010 dress, which is based on the runway version recently presented.

I think her asymmetrical tiered version was the perfect choice for her. The runway version may have been slightly overwhelming for her with that big floppy bow detail.

I can picture someone like Renee Zellweger wearing the runway version.

The teen actress paired her gorgeous dress with Christian Louboutin Numero Prive glitter slingbacks and Neil Lane jewels.

Earlier this week Shaun asked, “Why are celebrities and stylist rotating clothing so quickly as they’re already wearing Fall 2010?”

Although I often question why when we have so many Spring 2010 pieces we’d like to see on the red carpet, I do like to see the odd Fall piece, especially when it’s an exclusive piece like this.

I think it keeps the red carpet interesting, especially as we’re seeing so many repeat looks.

“ECCO Domani Fashion Party” – Emmy Rossum In Christian Siriano

It’s been a very long while since we saw Emmy Rossum on the red carpet, but she was out in New York last night attending the “ECCO Domani Fashion Party”.

Christian Siriano Spring 2010 collection was one of my favourites, and I really wish we would see more pieces on the red carpet.

Emmy wore a very lady-like ice blue sheath dress from Christian Siriano’s Spring 2010 collection which she zipped down just a little.

I love the colour against her milky complexion.

Her look was paired with platinum Christian Louboutin heels, and a beige python Ferragamo clutch.

The colour of the clutch doesn’t quite work for me, but that doesn’t stop this look from being a BDOTW contender.

Front Row @ Christian Siriano Fall 2010

Christian Siriano is always guaranteed to attract celebs to his presentations.

Amber Rose arrived wearing dress with that beautiful marine print from his Spring 2010 collection.

The dress has such bold shoulders that Amber shouldn’t have adopted this pose as it ruins the shape of the dress.

Her look was paired with same runway print heels.

Mena Suvari is a huge supporter of Christian Siriano, which is why I’m not surprised she wore a custom blue strapless dress from the designers Fall 2010 collection.

Who Wore Christian Siriano Better? Kat Deluna or Rihanna

Kat Deluna arrived at the Scott Barnes’ “About Face” Book Launch Party last month wearing a stunning Christian Siriano Spring 2010 marine print strapless dress with an asymmetrical detail.

At the time I thought that Kat was too short for the dress at 5ft 4in.

My belief was confirmed when I saw Rihanna – 5ft 8in – wearing the same dress.

Rihanna was still in Miami this weekend when she was spotted wearing the Siriano dress to the “Pepsi Refresh Project Kick Off Party at LIV”.

She paired her dress with gold Jimmy Choo sandals, diamond earrings and a stack of bracelets.

For the shoes alone Rihanna would win this, but she also wins because she’s not overwhelmed by the dress like Kat was.

Runway To Scott Barnes’ “About Face” Book Launch Party – Kat Deluna In Christian Siriano

Christian Siriano’s Spring 2010 collection was one of my favourite presentations of New York Fashion Week.

Both Veronica Webb and Christina Hendricks have done justice to the pieces they wore.

They say good things happen in three’s, but I guess that theory has been shattered thanks to Kat Deluna.

The singer joined Jennifer Lopez on the red carpet last night for the Scott Barnes’ “About Face” Book Launch Party.

Jennifer got a thumbs up, but Kat was a big fail.

This stunning marine blue Christian Siriano’s Spring 2010 dress with an asymmetrical ruffle – which Thomas had on his Wish List for Vanessa Williams – is totally wrong for her.

She just doesn’t have the height to pull it off.

If anything this dress makes her look even shorter than she actually is.

Had the dress been shorter and minus the ruffle this may have worked for her, but then it would be a different dress all together.

I do love her black Fendi bow front peep-toes though.

18.01.10 Best Dressed

2010 Golden Globes Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award

I was a bit underwhelmed by this red carpet until I saw Diane Kruger.

Ever since I attended the Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 Couture show in January last year I’ve been praying to see this gown on the red carpet.

Diane more than does this stunning pink ombre gown justice. The colour really pops on the soggy red carpet on a cold and rainy night in LA.

I love the sleek old Hollywood hairstyle. She was really out to impress.

Her white Raven Kauffman Couture clutch matched the pretty white bow on the side of her dress.

Most Predictable Award

There would’ve been no prizes for guessing that Marion Cotillard would wear Christian Dior.

Style.com even predicted that exact dress she would wear.

Being the face of ‘Lady Dior’ helps, plus when we see her in Dior we always get spectacular results.

Her petrol green satin asymmetrical Spring 2010 dress has a thigh-high split with a black négligée peeping through.

Jimmy Choo ‘Drake’ sandals and Chopard jewels complete her look.

Biggest Shock Award

Courteney Cox walked the red carpet last night wearing a black strapless dress from Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2010 collection.

Like most pieces from VB’s collection the dress was well structured and had a ‘top to hem’ zipper along the back.

I liked the jeweled detail on the empire waist, and the chic updo Courteney sported.

Normally I don’t care much for Courteney on the red carpet, but she really surprised me by how great she looked.

She carried a black Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch.

Her husband actor David Arquette dutifully kept her dry from the pouring rain.

Best Couture Award

This is definitely one of those ‘better on screen look’s.  Unfortunately the picture isn’t doing Drew Barrymore any favours.

Her Atelier Versace Fall 2009 one shoulder champagne gown was stunning.

The nude corset was covered by a nude crystallized overlay, with two clusters of glass fringes on the shoulder and the hip.

Her hair was swept back as not to interfere with the details, as the actress wore Lorraine Schwartz jewels to complete her look.

It’s A Grower Award

I’ve been going back and forth with Julianne Moore.

I was just about to put her on the Worst Dressed list, when I decided that her Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2008 dress wasn’t as bad as I first thought.  Mostly because she looks so elegant.

The grey colour initially put me off this silk bustier gown, but I really like the pleated lace detailed neckline and her green Bvlgari earrings were magnificent.

Black suede Balenciaga stingray sandals complete the look.

Beautiful, Even When Slightly Wet Award

Chloe Sevigny would’ve been the most worried about getting her rose Valentino sleeveless gown wet as it would’ve deflated those beautiful ruffles.

But she was lucky to have a someone to help shield her dress from the rain.

Buccellati jewels complete the look.

Va Va Voom ‘Jessica Rabbit’ Award

Christina Hendricks has the most amazing body, which she always dresses so well.

She leaves me breathless in this stunning Christian Siriano Spring 2010 gown which was custom-made to hug those delicious curves.

She carried a Christian Loubuotin ‘Kephron’ silver clutch and wore Loree Rodkin jewels.Read More…
