Cheryl Cole In Oscar de la Renta, Diane von Furstenberg & Burberry Prorsum – The X Factor US Auditions

In the manner of Chelsea Handler, “What…a hot mess.”

I haven’t used that term in a long while, but Cheryl Cole looked frightfully and uncharacteristically bad as she made her way to the first round of auditions for ‘The X Factor’ at the Galen Center in LA yesterday.

I don’t know if this a case of trying too hard, or not trying hard enough, but this look leaves me cold considering how cute she looked during auditions in the UK.

Cheryl has the right intentions by wearing American brands to appeal to her new American audience.

She wore an Oscar de la Renta ruffled silk top, with Diane von Furstenberg Simca stretch-cotton pants.

As styled by Net-A-Porter.com.

The British star added a Burberry Prorsum patent leather belt for a touch of Brit spirit.

Whilst colour-blocking is on trend, the two things that kill this look for me are as follows:

The Pants: They are too long. I don’t understand why people like to wear pants that drag along the floor like that.

The Belt: I really don’t like the turquoise with the orange and purple. It was one colour too much in this look.

What do you think of Cheryl’s first X Factor US look?

Paula Abdul is the second female judge.

She also arrived wearing purple opting for a YSL draped silk-satin dress with YSL Tribute sandals, as she cozied up to Simon Cowell for the photocall.

It will be very interesting to see how the dynamics of this relationship work. Cheryl and Paula are both used to being Simon’s favourite.

Being Simon’s favourite all depends on where you sit. Sharon Osbourne was moved from sitting next to Simon, for Dannii Minogue, who was then moved down for Cheryl Cole.

I wonder who’s got the hot seat this time.

Jessica Alba In Diane von Furstenberg – Baby2Baby Event

Celebrity mothers Jessica Alba and Nicole Richie attended The Baby2Baby event held at The Palihouse Holloway in West Hollywood, California yesterday.

Jessica opted for an all black look, but added a Diane von Furstenberg ‘Keyroon’ blazer from the Spring 2011 collection.

The white blazer has an elaborate swirling gold detail which helps add a touch of pizzazz to her look.

Nicole showed that she’s still a boho chick a heart by adding a House of Harlow five-strand headpiece to her black velvet dress.

A snake-skin clutch and nude peep-toes completed her look.

The Red Ball

Diane von Furstenberg hosted the Red Ball at Zhang Huan’s studio in Shanghai, China yesterday to celebrate the opening of her “Journey of a Dress” exhibition at the PACE gallery.

Jessica Alba and Ziyi Zhang attended both wearing Diane von Furstenberg sequin dresses.

Jessica’s dress, which proudly display’s her growing baby bump has a sexy draped neckline and a side split.

Sleek locks and a Diane von Furstenberg Lytton clutch completed her look.

Ziyi Zhang opted for a lush forest green sequinned dress with a plunging neckline and slightly padded shoulders.

I would die for Ziyi Zhang’s dress. The colour is breath-taking on her.

Yasmin Le Bon In Diane von Furstenberg & Amber Le Bon In Jonathan Saunders

The second Cartier ‘Travel with Style’ Concours showcased an extraordinary collection of India’s unique Classic Cars on Saturday at The Polo Grounds, New Delhi.

Jury Member Yasmin Le Bon and daughter Amber soaked up the atmosphere at the event.

The weather looks absolutely divine. I’m so jealous.

Yasmin kept cool wearing a Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2011 one-shoulder silk print dress with gold peep-toes.

Her daughter – who could easily pass as her sister – opted for a Jonathan Saunders sleeveless print dress with a side split from the Resort 2011 collection, which she teamed with some cool shades.

The mother and daughter have height, beauty, perfect olive skin, brunette locks and great taste in clothes in common.

Don’t you just hate them? j/k

Rosario Dawson in Diane von Furstenberg – 2011 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Rosario Dawson was one of the few to opt for a stand out colour on the red carpet at the 2011 Vanity Fair Oscar Party in West Hollywood on Sunday night.

She wore a fresh-off-the-runway Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2011 dress.

The shimmering blue wrap dress has a revealing thigh-high split.

I wish this dress didn’t have the split so I wouldn’t have to see those darn Brian Atwood ‘Harrison’ pumps again.

She wore them to the 2011 Independent Spirit Awards and I’m pretty sure she’s worn them several times before.

Sexy strappy sandals would have been perfect for this look.

Pumps are a baffling choice.

Cartier jewels completed her look.

Runway To HauteMuse Magazine Photoshoot – Olivia Palermo In Diane von Furstenberg

Earlier this week Olivia Palermo was in Qatar to shoot for the premiere cover of ‘HauteMuse’ magazine’s first issue.

The photo shoot took place at the beautiful cultural venue Katara.

Olivia’s shoot was full of bright colourful Spring 2011 creations from Erdem, Alexander McQueen, Bottega Veneta, Halston, David Koma and many more.

In this exclusive picture you can see Olivia wearing a stunning pair of Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2011 electric blue harem pants.

I love this colour. It reminds me of the hot Tibi pants Blake Lively wore on the set of ‘Gossip Girl’ last year.

The rest of Olivia’s look includes a DVF khaki yellow top, an exquisite beaded statement necklace which complements her look plus an added pop of colour via her hot pink Christian Louboutin Balota sandals.

I can’t wait to see the rest of the photoshoot.
