Who Wore French Connection Better? Stephanie Pratt or Alexandra Burke

You can’t walk 5 paces in any women’s clothing store without being dazzled by sequins at the moment.

Nothing works better than Christmas parties and sequin mini dresses.

‘The Hills’ star Stephanie Pratt wore this blue French Connection Spirit Catcher dress recently when she attended the US Weekly Hot Hollywood Party in LA.

She paired her mini sparkler with navy blue heels and a matching clutch.

Last years ‘X Factor’ winner Alexandra Burke wore the same dress with open-toe ankle boots this weekend, when she walked the red carpet at the “Cash Money Records party” held at the Royal Exchange Building in London.

As much as I’ve sworn off ankle boots, I think this dress hangs better on Alexandra, so she wins for me.

You can purchase this dress is 3 different colours from French Connection’s website.

If you’re looking for something more festive, you can buy this dress in red in your local French Connection store.

Who Wore French Connection Better? Katherine Jenkins or Lauren Bosworth

I always love it when celebrities wear high street brands.

Last week we saw Katy Perry and Rihanna battle it out in H&M. This time we have Katherine Jenkins and Lauren Bosworth both wearing French Connection.

Katherine Jenkins looked very pretty in pink when she attended the “Samsung Pink Ribbon Breast Awareness Day” at Westfield Shopping center in London last month.

I wasn’t crazy about her black Trib Two’s, but I did love those stunning silver earrings.

Lauren Bosworth partied with Stephanie Pratt and Lauren Conrad at “Maxim’s Launch Party For Assassin’s Creed II” recently wearing the same dress is black.

I’m sure the ladies had no interest in the computer game, but it gave them all an excuse to dress up.

Lo kept her look very simple by only adding black ankle boots to her look.

I dislike both footwear choices, but I love the bright pink colour on Katherine so she wins for me.

This dress is available to purchase in both pink and black from French Connection’s website.

Last Night In London

Punchbowl Pub

Helena Christensen was seen leaving Guy Richie’s pub last night looking gorgeous wearing a v-neck Isabel Marant Fall 2009 animal print dress.

She wore her dress with black satin shoes, and kept off the bitter November chill with a grey jacket.

The Terrence Higgins Trust Supper Club

What stands out most from Jacquetta Wheeler’s look is her Temperley London cropped leather studded jacket.

The rest of her look included black pieces studded with gold, from her LBD to her clutch.

At first I thought Heidi Range’s dress was from Victoria Beckham’s Fall 2009 collection, but she is actually wearing a French Connection long sleeved Annie dress.

The Sugababes are known for mostly wearing mini dresses, so this is a refreshing change for Heidi.

Red’s Hot Women Awards

Jo Whiley looked good wearing a Peter Pilotto Fall 2009 skirt, paired with a black blazer, black tee and Gucci triple platform pumps.

Weather Girls get a bad rap, but GMTV’s Andrea McLean has to be one of the most stylish Weather Girls I’ve ever seen.

I’m loving her cropped jumpsuit.

Opening Night of “Calendar Girls”

Kelly Brook’s grey dress looks to be more appropriate for the boudoir than red carpet, but you can’t help falling in love with Kelly as she ALWAYS has a gracious smile on her face despite being knocked time and time again.

Katherine Jenkins Wears Designer & High Street Brands To Promote Her New Album “Believe”

Katherine Jenkins continues to promote her new album “Believe”.

During her promotion she dazzled in designer dresses, but also made high-street looks we can all afford look amazing.

After she was helicoptered into Swansea, the singer changed out of her Oscar de la Renta dress into a strapless sassy D&G dress to sign her CD for waiting fans.

The floral print dress was less structured on Katherine, as she opted out of the runway belt and paired her dress with tights and Trib Two’s.

The next day she headed to London Westfield shopping centre to greet fans at HMV.

Here she looked beautiful wearing a black Matthew Williamson jewel detailed dress from the Fall 2009 collection without the runway necklace, which I had assumed was part of the dress.

YLS sandals completed the look.

At HMViIn Manchester Katherine opted for a cute strapless black and white printed French Connection Danask sweetheart dress worn with Trib Two’s.

Attending the “Samsung Pink Ribbon Breast Awareness Day” in London, Katherine glowed in a bright pink French Connection Otto frill dress again worn with Trib Two’s.

My favourite looks here are the Matthew Williamson dress, and the pink French Connection dress. Regular readers will guess why.

Spike TV’s “Scream 2009!”

It’s a upsetting trend but some stars are skipping the red carpet for some events.

Jessica Alba was one of those stars who we only saw on stage at this event.

I guess she skipped the red carpet because she was presenting the award for ‘Most Anticipated Fantasy Movie’ to actor Johnny Depp.

A girl’s got to get ready for that moment.

Jessica looked beautiful wearing a Lanvin black floral metallic lame ¾ sleeve dress with draped detailing on the shoulder.

From head-to-toe this is the best I have seen her in a long while.

Despite being the new face of Armani underwear Megan Fox seems to love Martin Grant.

This is the second time she has worn a dress from the Paris based Australian designer.

Her red haltered Martin Grant Spring 2010 dress wraps and drapes around her toned body, as she sports a classic updo.

Anna Paquin walked on stage to accept her award for ‘Best Horror Actress’ wearing the same Marc Jacobs duchesse satin zip-embellished dress which Anne Hathaway wore to the Costume Institute Gala earlier this year.

Kate Bosworth opted for a sexy nude Alexander Wang Spring 2010 bandage dress, which she paired with leopard print heels.

Isabel Lucas is wearing a very detailed black and gold embroidered Chanel Resort 2010 mini dress, but with her newly lighten locks I just can’t help but be dumbstruck by her eyebrows.

Had I not read that this was Jamie King, I would never have recognised her.

The hair, dress and make-up are not what we would normally expect to see from Jamie who usually fades into the background.

She was front and center at this event wearing a nude Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 tiered asymmetric mini dress, which has been modified from the runway.

Love the dress, and the heavier make-up is different, but the hair is a big no-no.

Christina Ricci is always totally captivating on the red carpet, no matter what she wears.

Even her hair is quite fascinating as she changes again from light brunette to this raven colour.

She showed-off her legs wearing a Jasmine di Milo Fall 2009 dress with cut-out detailing on the yoke, paired with YSL Trib Two patent platform heels.

Olivia Munn showed off her tanned pins wearing a blue French Connection long sleeved fitted dress.

I love how this colour pops.

Victoria Justice looks like she has grown a few inches.

The Zoey 101 star was totally decked out head-to-toe in Rock & Republic.

Her look cute included wearing a Rock & Republic’s “Patricia” v-neck mini dress with leather and sheer chiffon trim paired with Rock & Republic’s “Brooklyn” military-inspired leather jacket in deep purple, and “Leena” peep toe ankle booties and “Newport” clutch in black.
