Runway To 2009 MTV EMAs Stage – Katy Perry In Viktor & Rolf, Georges Chakra and Marchesa

Katy Perry certainly knows how to put on a performance.

Hosting last night’s MTV EMA’s the singer made the event her own by showcasing a spectrum of crazy fashion finds.

Pictured in an alarming Viktor & Rolf Spring 2009 ball gown, Katy opted for shock tactics on the stage.

The strangely shaved netting and bullet-hole-style cavity is a bit too eerie for such a light-hearted event.

I loved the dramatics in Viktor & Rolf’s Spring presentation, however this dress screams ‘DANGER!’ Sorry Katy, car-crash couture.

This is more like it.

Sampling a Marchesa 2010 dress, Katy looks like something from a vamped-up version of a swan-lake production.

Feathers seem to be a favourite with Marchesa for Spring 2010.

Here they complement the lace body, adding movement and texture and give Katy the extra detail that she needs. This dress has already been worn by Camilla Belle.

I love the white on Katy. It’s clean, fresh and works with her dark hair and eyes radiantly.

This Georges Chakra Couture Fall 2009 gown has hints of both pin-up glamour and a 1930’s flapper dress.

Katy is captivating here, the sparkling blue sequins and pearls on the dress turn Katy from a loopy pop-star into a siren.

Showing off her figure, and quite rightly too, Katy sticks with a more mature look.

Katy wore a second look by Georges Chakra, this time from his Spring 2010 ready to wear Edition collection.

The Lebanese designer dedicates his work to a modern, self-confident woman, making Katy a worthy fit for his designs.

This dress is another of Katy’s more ‘wacky’ choices. Having modified the hem to make a structured skirt, it resembles the carousel dress that the singer wore at last years EMA’s.

Ultimately wearing this dress whilst swinging on a decorated seat doesn’t really do much for the singer except confirm what we already knew; slightly bonkers.

16th Annual Elle Women In Hollywood Tribute

Zoe Saldana glowed as always wearing a Calvin Klein Spring 2010 ivory dress.

The dress which is gathered on the skirt to give it some shape was paired with gold accessories.

Jenna Dewan was one of my favourites on this red carpet, as she dazzled me wearing a stunning Edition by Georges Chakra Fall 2009 grey ombre dress with sequin bodice.

Black t-bar Louboutin’s and a black clutch complete this gorgeous look.

Theron’s mini me, Katie Cassidy looked sophisticated and demure wearing an ivory Lela Rose Spring 2010 halter dress which had a metallic silver print and waist band.

Her hair was loosely pulled back as she paired her dress with silver Jimmy Choo “Flynn” sandals.

Fabulous as always.

At first I didn’t quite like Juilanne Moore’s Calvin Klein Spring 2010 ivory, grey and black tank dress at first, but it’s slowing growing on me.

It’s not BDOTW worthy, but she makes it work for her.

I do love the texture.

Diane Kruger opted for a cute short sleeved Balenciaga blue, white and black printed dress with draping around the hips to define the waist.

I like the shape of her dress and the polka dot tights don’t bother me, but I so would’ve referred her to wear the runway version.

There has been a lot of rumors that Renee Zellweger and Carolina Herrera have parted ways, but this cherry red strapless pencil dress screams Carolina Herrera to me.

I love the bow detail on the back, which is accented with an gold jewel detail.

Becki Newton looks divine wearing a ivory corseted Dolce & Gabbana strapless dress with a flirty chiffon skirt.

I love her silver strappy sandals, but I’m drooling over her Chloe bow embellished clutch.

One of my many pet peeves are exposed bra’s – anywhere – this is not exclusive to the red carpet.

If Katie Holmes was going to show us her bra under her black sheer Azzedine Alaia ensemble she could’ve at least worn a push up bra.

Emily Blunt wore a nude tulle strapless Dolce & Gabbana nude strapless dress with a grosgrain waist belt tied into a cute bow.

Her accessories were very complementary to her look without being to matchy matchy.

Robin Wright Penn wore an Emporio Armani black tuxedo jacket and black satin skinny trousers, paired with open-toe Christian Louboutin heels.

I hope she reverts back to those wow-factor looks we saw from her at Cannes.

Dianna Agron wore a strapless D&G tulle dress with Burberry Prorsum platform heels.

These heels are so heavy for this pretty dress.

Brenda Strong’s black David Meister sheath dress is accented by an amazing crystal beaded neckline.

I could gush about that stunning neckline all day, as it’s so pretty.

Sofia Vassilieva looked so cute, in her age appropriate Ina Soltani white party dress with black leather strap details.

The lucky teen got to wear stunning Swarovski jewelry with her fabulous dress.

Another teen cutie Miranda Cosgrove wore a Vena Cava Mandala dress.

The two-tone crew-neck silk dress features a sheer chiffon yoke and asymmetrical metallic fringe and chiffon ruffles on the body.

I love the embellishments on this dress.

Cat Deeley normally always looks fabulous, but on this occasion she looks a hot mess.

Leave this look to those trashy D Listers Cat, you’re way better than this.

Whilst I don’t particularly have a problem with what Amber Rose to this event because she will never look anything but tacky to me, I did have a huge issue with her Ocotber Elle US magazine editorial which was more Maxim than Elle.

Of course it was style by Kanye West.

Elle, seriously, what were you thinking?

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.

You can click here to see celebs on the red carpet wearing Georges Chakra.

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.
