8th Annual Can-Do Awards Dinner – Rachel Ray In Stella McCartney

US TV host Rachel Ray looked beautiful as she arrived at the 8th Annual Can-Do Awards Dinner held at Abigail Kirsch’s Pier Sixty at Chelsea Pier in New York last night.

The presenter wore a Stella McCartney pleated rose print dress from the Spring 2010 collection which I really love.

I usually prefer Rachel in more fitted silhouette’s, but I think this type of dress is perfect of a spring time event.

At first I couldn’t figure out what I didn’t like about this look, then I realised it wasn’t the dress – it was Rachel’s hair and necklace.

They both make her neck disappear.

8th Annual Can-Do Awards Dinner – Mariska Hargitay In Dries Van Noten

Mariska Hargitay looked stunning at the 8th Annual Can-Do Awards Dinner held at Abigail Kirsch’s Pier Sixty at Chelsea Pier in New York last night.

I will be forever grateful to her, as she has shown the world how Dries Van Noten should be worn following Jessica Simpson’s disappointing showing.

The “Law & Order” actress looks sensational.

She’s elegance personified in this Dries Van Noten Spring 2010 tribal print dress.

I was worried celebs would be too afraid of this collection, but I’m glad Mariksa, Julianne Moore and Mary-Kate Olsen have embraced this collection on the red carpet.

Mariska’s look is paired with stunning strappy black sandals with a gold accent which complements her gold clutch.

I think she deserves a place on the BDOTW poll.

Do you?

Runway To JFK – Jessica Simpson In Dries Van Noten

Yesterday Jessica Simpson was spotted leaving JFK airport as she attempted to trick photographers by leaving through a secret exit.

I gotta say I was really surprised to see her wearing a Dries Van Noten chain print top which we saw presented as a dress in the Spring 2010 collection.

Hopefully I don’t sound too snobby when I say that I’m surprised she was aware of the brand, but then one doesn’t need to be aware of a brand to purchase a piece from it.

I really love this print and simply adored this collection, but I hate how Jessica has styled it.

She’s worn the Dries Van Noten shirt over a grey tank dress, which she paired with black gladiators and a Dior quilted bag.

Travesty.

Otarian Restaurant Grand Opening – Mary-Kate Olsen In Dries Van Noten

Mary Kate Olsen was spotted at the grand opening celebration of “Otarian: The Planet Most Sustainable Restaurant”.

The actress/fashion designer arrived at the Bleecker Street eatery in New York City sporting a very casual look jeans and a black shirt.

I may not have looked at her twice has she not worn this green Dries Van Noten Spring 2010 floral print jacket.

The jacket is gorgeous.

I’m not usually a fan of Mary-Kate’s shabby chic, but I don’t hate this look.

For once she doesn’t look like she was dragged out of bed.

Runway To 2010 Oscars – Maggie Gyllenhaal In Dries von Noten

Fabulous Florals Award
I totally expected Maggie Gyllenhaal to give us something interesting on the red carpet at the 2010 Oscars, and she didn’t disappoint.

The nominated actress wore a Dries van Noten strapless dress which was made from the same print we saw in the recent Fall 2010 presentation.

The draped evening dress with ruffle in the back was hand painted in bright blue brush strokes which fading out to white at the hem.

I love the dress, the pink lips and her swept back into an elegant chignon.

Her look was paired with Fred Leighton jewels.
