37th Annual FiFi Awards

The FiFi Awards, is fragrance industry’s equivalent to the Oscars, where Paris Hilton was honoured with “Female Celebrity Fragrance of the Year” award last night.

This is the first time in a long time that I love what Paris is wearing.

Out goes the billowing dresses, and jeweled headbands, and in comes this Georges Chakra Fall 2009 Couture purple dress, with draping, navy bows and jewel encrusted details.

She completes the look with her favourite Gina heels.

Who would have thought Queen Latifah and Paris Hilton, would share the same taste in designer?

Queen Latifah befit her regal name, by looking breath-taking wearing a charcoal grey lame dress, from Georges Chakras’ Fall 2009 ready-to-wear collection.

I love the sleeve that drapes over her shoulder, and the smokey eyes.

Along with Paris, she is up for Best Dressed of The Week.

Senior Vice President & Creative Director of Estee Lauder, Aerin Lauder, opted for a blue Lanvin leopard print dress.

This is not an easy look too pull off, but I would have worn it without the belt.

Mary J Blige wore a watercolour print Roberto Cavalli maxi dress, with the signature gold serpent.

Her gold drop, emerald stone earrings, complemented the look perfectly.

Hilary Rhoda wore a beige strapless fitted Jacques Fath dress, with a peplum at the waist, plus an origami pleated detailing trimming the neckline.

As much as I love her dress, I also love her gold chandelier earrings, and her black Jimmy Choo strappy sandals.

Unfortunately Kate Walsh’s look is really not working for me.

Not the lurex pink Hugo Boss dress, nor the hairstyle.

Georges Chakra Spring 2009 Haute Couture


After scheduling enough blog posts so you would not think I abandoned you, I excitedly made my way to Paris this morning.

Upon arrival, my first stop was the Georges Chakra show.

Georges Chakra has a huge presence on the red carpet with stars such as Carrie Underwood (she’s a big fan), Mischa Barton, Christina Milian, Amerie, Kerry Washington and most recently Queen Latifah – who was a guest at the show – but more on her later.

Georges Chakra would have pleased his clientèle with his Spring 2009 Haute Couture collection, because it was simply breath-taking.

The colour palette was a wondrous mix of nudes, pretty pinks, vivid yellows, whites, vibrant violets, black and prints.

What may not be evident in my pictures, are the intricate details of swirling shapes, ruffles, beads, paillettes, and fans. These details were presented on cute strapless cocktail tutu’s dresses, gowns, and pant ensembles. Each one was more flouncy, fluffy and embellished than the next.

Apart from the drool-worthy gowns, I was very taken by a clear PVC pajama set, which had an explosion of gold floral details. It also has gold embellishments on the trim of the lapels, and a tan sash tied to the waist.

The highlight came at the end, when the model wearing a stunning bridal gown, removed her large skirt, to reveal a shorter skirt underneath.

For my first couture, show it was one magnificent collection.

I also attended the Christian Lacroix and Givenchy shows, but I will tease you with that for tomorrow. Out of the 3, this was by far my favourite show.

There is more to come from Mr Chakra. On February 14th, he will premiere his first ready to wear collection in New York.
