Best Dressed Of The Week – Kristen Bell In Marchesa, Veronica Webb In Christian Siriano & Iman In Donna Karan

Congratulations for picking Kristen Bell in Marchesa as your winner for Best Dressed this week, because I couldn’t separate Veronica Webb and Iman.

Had you guys picked one of them I would have picked the other, but as Kristen was your winner I was stuck.

Veronica pulled off a very stunning Christian Siriano gown – one of my favourites from New York Fashion Week – whilst Iman turned back the clock – or just reinvented it – wearing a sparkling deep purple sequined Donna Karan plunging gown.

Looking at Iman I think we all worked that bit harder in the gym this week.

She really does get better with age. Cheesy line, but oh so true in this case.

Thanks for your votes.

2009 American Ballet Theatre Fall Gala

I LOVED this asymmetrical Christian Siriano Spring 2010 marine blue gown with bubble skirt when I saw it presented on the runway during New York Fashion Week, and I prayed that the wearer would do it justice.

Veronica Webb my goosebumps say ‘yes you did’.

The model paired her dress with Martin Katz jewels and a large silver clutch.

BDOTW contender for sure.

Emmy Rossum attended the Marchesa Spring 2010 presentation during New York Fashion Week, but she opted for a stunning ivory one-shouldered gown from the Resort 2010 collection which had a stunning embroidered bodice.

She looks every inch the snow white princess, I bet she feels like in this stunning gown.

JoAnna Garcia wore a scarlet red Alberta Ferretti strapless gown which looked amazing against her bronze skin-tone.

The shoes I’m not so crazy about, and the look feels like it’s lacking something, like a clutch or some jewels.

Iman is unbelievable wearing a deep purple sequined Donna Karan plunging dress.

Unbelievably drop-dead-gorgeous.  I’m almost lost for words.

I’ve had this blog for over 2 years now, and she has never faltered.   If anything she just gets better and better.

All the leaves are brown, and the sky is grey but that doesn’t mean Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis shouldn’t stick to red carpet rule number 2. “No Coats On The Red Carpet”.

Now I will constantly wonder about Natalie’s sketched Chanel dress, and who designed Mila’s LBD under her white coat.

Christian Siriano Spring 2010


Christian Siriano’s Spring 2010 collection is the only presentation I have seen this season were the designer got a standing ovation. He also received the loudest cheer.

The collection started off with nudes paired with pink pieces which was delicate and ultra feminine. The soft pink doesn’t really show in the pictures though.

Then the collection moved onto marine blues, starting with aqua then moving onto more dramatic blues for a real under the sea feel. Bold red and orange pieces followed.

The collection featured cute mini dresses which were strapless and asymmetrical. Shorts were paired with silk blouses, large brim hats we’ve seen in previous collections, and dramatic gowns. Hopefully Emmy bound.

Sessilee Lopez worked her flamenco style gown, whilst another model literally carried her nude and red tulle gown which had a magnificent train.

Both drew gasps, but not as much as the silk chiffon-layered goddess gown. It really was the wow moment of the show.

I was very impressed with this presentation.

Alexis Bleldel’s dress was a Christian Siriano Spring 2010 preview, but her look differs from the runway.

The runway version had one sleeve and a tulip shaped skirt.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Alexis Bledel In Christian Siriano & Kate Beckinsale In Jil Sander

So much happened yesterday so I closed the poll early.

Even had I given this poll a few more hours to run, I’m sure Alexis Bleldel would have still won.

You guys fell in love with her Christian Siriano Spring 2010 ensemble which she paired with red hot Dior heels.

I fell in love with Kate Beckinsale in Jil Sander.

The simple sophistication of the strapless navy dress and Kate’s flawless beauty won me over.

Christian Siriano For Payless


When Mena Suvari attended The Launch Of Character Project last week, I was really taken by her heels.

Nico informed me that they were from the Christian Siriano for Payless collection.

I was shocked, surely they cost hundreds of dollars. Wrong. They only cost between $25-$45.

Christian teamed up with Payless for his first shoe and handbag collection. He says it was inspired by the Egyptian landscape. I would say it was inspired by Christian Louboutin for Rodarte and Lanvin, with the spikes, chains, and cone heels.


Here are some other pieces from his shoe collection, which will be available this Fall.

Runway To The Emmy Awards – Heidi Klum


Although the presenting between the reality TV hosts was not the best, Heidi Klum still shone through, with a series of amazing wardrobe changes at last nights Emmy Awards.

She arrived on the red carpet wearing a stunning Armani Privé Fall 2008 gown covered in Swarovski crystals, with a cape. As you can see, the dress was a lot more risqué on the runway.


She then changed into a strapless ivory Valentino Fall 2008 Couture gown. The colour was fantastic on her, but I was a bit bothered by the ruffled detail.

Her look was complete with large chandelier earrings.


Her next dress, was the most simple in design, but the most vibrant in colour. This cobalt blue Michael Kors Spring 2009 gown, really brightened up the stage.


My favourite stage gown was this Christian Siriano Spring 2009 gown. Yes Christian Siriano. I love that she believes in the Project Runway winner enough to wear his design.

The grey and the yellow tiered dress asymmetric dress, was simply breath-taking. And I am sure the designer, who was sitting in the crowd, was very proud of how well Heidi wore it.


For the Governor’s Ball Heidi changed again into another Armani Privé Fall 2008 gown.

On the plunge-neck dress, one half was satin, the other half adorned with Swarovski crystals. This dress was also modified from the runway version.

The dress was completed with a black satin bow at the waist.
