7th Annual Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party

Katie Cassidy was the only one who really impressed me at this event.

Jessica Stroup’s ‘Best Red Carpet Newcomber of 2009′ title is being strongly contested by this girl.

Katie was by far the best dress of the night wearing a watermelon Paule Ka Spring 2009 skirt with tulip bubble details, which she paired with a purple bustier trimmed with lace.

As always the pumps don’t really work for me, but everything else – including her Louis Vuitton Motard satin clutch – is perfection.

Noot Seear opted for an edgier/laidback look wearing a Phi Fall 2009 leather skirt with an asymmetrical exposed zipper and a white tank.

I really dislike the shoes with this look.

Editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue Amy Astley, arrived at this D&G sponsored party wearing a grape D&G Fall 2009 top with voluminous sleeves, paired with navy pants.

Kelly Osbourne’s D&G black satin dress was covered with black and white shamrock appliqués on the sleeves to make the dress more interesting.

“Dancing With the Stars” is paying off. She looks amazing.

Victoria Justice looks so grown up, but not too old in her poppy red BCBG Max Azria sleeveless shift dress.

The dress is covered with hundreds of red paillette’s which matches her ruby lips.

Naturi Naughton didn’t go all out this time.

Instead wearing a simple one-shouldered jersey dress, but add a bit of drama to her look opting for a large jeweled belt.

Chelsea Staub’s canary yellow dress would have stood out on the red carpet.

I love the gold detailed neckline on her BCBG Max Azria dress.

I love Miranda Cosgrove’s floaty ribbon print D&G dress.

It’s nice, but not too cutesy.

It very much suits her style and personality.

I feel a bit disappointed by AnnaLynne McCord’s look.

I expected her to be in the same league as Katie, but I’m really unimpressed by this look.

Jessica Lowndes wore a cute strapless dress with a sequined bodice plus a black and white skirt.

I feel like I see this look on Jessica quite a bit.  I love her to try something new.

Lily Collins opted for a black D&G strapless dress.

Selena Gomez wore a silky black and grey ensemble.

Ashley Tisdale wore a Kate Moss for Topshop Trophy studded dress, which draped low enough to expose her bra through the sheer part of the dress.

Her dress was paired with Christian Louboutin snake skin heels.

Jesscia Stroup opted for a black BCBG Max Azria jumpsuit paired with a green clutch and black open-toe booties.

The Cartier International Polo Day

Anna Friel has been injecting a lot of sassy edgier pieces in her closet recently, and she stays true to form wearing this sexy Antonio Berardi Fall 2009 black textured dress.

I love the sculptured shoulders, the square cut neckline and the fact that she didn’t wear tights with this dress. We had horrible weather this weekend in England as you can see from the moody clouds in the background.

Black heels and a black crocodile clutch complete this look.

Designer Saloni Lodha and Marissa Anschutz seem to be having a wonderful time.

Saloni is wearing a haltered dress from her own Spring 2009 collection which has a ruffled bib and a tiered skirt.

It’s perfect for a summers day, so it’s such a shame the bad weather made her wear a jacket and we don’t get to see all of the stunning details of her design.

Marissa was a more bold wearing her Saloni Cora strapless dress sans coat.

Her beige chiffon gathered strapless dress has mesh panel on the sides with a black velvet trim plus black and fluorescent pink chiffon detail and beading embellishment.

It’s a gorgeous dress, but I find my eyes drawn to her fuchsia pink Christian Louboutin Paquita satin sandals.

Neve Campbell doesn’t attend many events, so this is a rare treat.

The actress wore a multi-coloured tiered Moschino dress with black pumps.

The dress is nice, but the hairstyle ages her.

Honestly I almost didn’t recognise Ashley Roberts with so much clothing on.

Normally the most we see on her is a bra and hot pants when she’s performing with her group the PussyCat Dolls.

She really scrubs up well, looking very ladylike in her ravishing red Alexander McQueen pocketed dress with shoulder pads and a cowl neckline.

Naomie Harris’ cream demi-sheer D&G dress is instantly recognizable by the black appliqué butterfly detail on the neckline.

I love the ruffled hemline.

She did well wear the right coloured bra under this dress.

Lara Lewington is wearing the very popular Lipsy London zip edge strapless dress which only costs £35, whilst probably wearing thousands of pounds worth of Cartier jewels.

Who Wore D&G Better? Amber Heard, AnnaLynne McCord or Kiely Williams

Before she went blonde, Amber Heard arrived at the D&G flagship boutique opening in Beverly Hills wearing a very sexy baby pink D&G tulle dress with Jimmy Choo Glenys python sandals.

Actress AnnaLynne McCord wore the same dress at the 90210 Season Wrap Party in West Hollywood back in March.

The sultry star wore her dress with a pair of pink D&G patent strappy sandals.

“Cheetah Girl” Kiely Williams attended “Us Weekly’s Hot Hollywood Party” wearing the same dress. She opted for a silver headband and black accessories including bow fronted peep-toes and black gloves.

A desperate cry for attention me thinks, because this isn’t a good look.

This is such a tough decision between Amber and AnnaLynne.

Both are smokin’ hot, but in the end I will only give this to AnnaLynn because I love the matching pink heels.

On The Gossip Girl Set With Leighton Meester Wearing D&G

In the UK we are slightly behind the US on Gossip Girl, so this week episode 21 of season 2 titled “Seder Anything” was aired.

The episode shows Serena returning from her trip to Spain. Blair making a secret deal with Nate’s grandfather and Dan taking a job to earn money for college.

Leighton Meester’s character Blair Waldorf wore this gorgeous pink and black floral D&G silk organza halter dress in one of her scenes with Chace Crawford as Nate Archibald.

The dress is so floaty and feminine with it’s ruffled trimmed collar and flounce hem.

You too can channel your inner Blair Waldorf by buying this dress from Revolve Clothing for $945/£578.19.

D&G’s Pre-Fall 2009 Collection, Will Bring Out The Social Butterfly In You

The newest additions to Net-A-Porter D&G range are all adorned with butterflies, as this was the inspiration behind the collection.

“If you aspire to be this year’s social butterfly but want to avoid the tedious small talk that goes with it, you can make an impact with a stunning D&G Pre-Fall piece that screams charm and elegance instead.”

The collection also has accessories including butterfly shaped sunglasses, and butterfly adorned shoes.

We’ve already seen these butterflies on the red carpet, as actress Tamsin Egerton wore a D&G silk bustier dress to the Royal Academy of Art Exhibition, which I have added to my favourites this week.

Her dress was worn with black heels, embellished with contrasting butterflies to complete the dainty look.

Winona Ryder wore a butterfly embellished corseted dress on the cover of Elle UK, so the look is already catching on.

I’m guessing Mariah Carey will be all over this.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – Dolce & Gabbana Party

Kylie Minogue would’ve been the stand out guest, arriving wearing a hot pink strapless Dolce & Gabbana ruched cocktail dress with an embellished belt, and gold heels.

Love the colour and the confident sassy strut.

Eva Herzigova wore black sheer and lace sleeveless Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 dress with ruffled straps and a sheer front panel.

The straps have been replace by the runway sleeves, but this modification makes the dress even more sexier.

Eva completes the look with black peep-toes, which are trimmed with lace.

Of all the looks Peaches Geldof has sported at Cannes, I love this one.

It much more her style, than those gowns she has been wearing.

This silver ruched Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress is very much like Kylie’s dress, but with square paillette detailed pom pom sleeves.

It must have been a busy night because the hair, earrings and make-up all remain the same, from her previous events.

Lucky girl.

I believe this is the image they should put in a dictionary to describe ‘death warmed up’.

Pixie Geldof’s being pale is not the issue, its that heavy make-up which is so garish.

I do like her navy and white anchor print plunging halter D&G Spring 2009 gown, just not on her but I’m glad she opted out of the pleated gold lame fan pieces.

If you hate this look, it could’ve been worse because she was spotted at Dolce & Gabbana’s store in London trying on an animal print gown.

Olivia Palermo decided to ignore the unwritten rule of courtesy, by wearing a light blue off-the-shoulder dress not designed by her hosts.

Looking through the Dolce & Gabbana collection, I struggled to find a piece that I could’ve pictured her wearing, so I guess she made the right choice.

I adore the colour on her.  It’s a very pretty dress which she accessorizes with silver jewels.

Of course she is wearing her favourite YSL tribute sandals.

I guess she only packed one pair of heels for this trip.

Kerry Washington wore a Dolce & Gabbana silver cocktail dress with exaggerated off the shoulder sleeves.

Again, this is not a favourite Kerry look for me.

Dita Von Teese sticks to her trademark polished style wearing a black sequin Dolce & Gabbana dress, with exaggerated sleeves.

Her elbow-length lace gloves adding an extra touch of glamour, whilst her make-up was flawless and her necklace was striking.

Claudia Schiffer wore a black strapless Dolce & Gabbana gown with a black clutch, black peep-toes, and a single gold bracelet.

I know Carine Roitfeld is a style maven to many of you, so all I will say about this look is we all have our bad days.

Who Wore D&G Better? Katy Perry or Alexander Burke


Katy Perry was in Milan to attend the D&G Spring 2009 show back in September, before heading over to the design duo’s showroom to perform a showcase of her songs.

She was sporting a cute nautical dress from D&G’s Spring 2009 collection, with matching heels, and a big red corsage, channeling her usual retro glam.

X-Factor winner Alexandra Burke, wore the same D&G dress to the 2009 Elle Style Awards. The singer was less adventurous with her look, sporting all black accessories, and losing the red corsage, so Katy wins for me.
