Jennifer Lopez Leaves The Hotel Crillon Wearing Gianfranco Ferré

Before leaving Paris via private jet, Jennifer Lopez was spotted leaving the Hotel Crillon in Paris wearing a black Gianfranco Ferré dress.

The black dress is stunning.

This is very much a dress I would love to own. It’s sexy. I love the leather details, the panels and the long sleeves.

My only problem is that it appears to be a tad too snug around Jennifer’s hips.

I share Jennifer’s pain because I have the same problem as my hips are a UK12 and everywhere else is a UK10.

The challenge to find something the works all over or cheat and wear spanx.

The diva paired her dress with black peep-toes, C.Viviani jewels and a black leather Loewe “Amazona” bag which she’s been totting around whilst she’s been in Paris.

“The Back-Up Plan” LA Premiere – Jennifer Lopez In Gianfranco Ferré

Jennifer Lopez is everywhere at the moment promoting her new movie “The Back-Up Plan”.

The movie had it’s LA premiere last night, where she walked the red carpet with her hubby Marc Anthony.

The diva looked stunning wearing a silver one-shoulder Gianfranco Ferré dress.

She really knows how to bring the drama to the red carpet.

I don’t think it’s this the best dress she’s worn this week, but it definitely has the ‘wow’ factor.

She not only walked the red carpet with Marc, but she also walked with the cute pooch who also appears in the movie.

Her dress was paired with a studded Christian Louboutin clutch with trademark silver heel clasp, and Ferragamo silver satin peep toe heels.

Do you think this deserves to be considered for BDOTW (Best Dressed Of The Week)?

Runway To Red Carpet – Carey Mulligan In Bottega Veneta & Gianfranco Ferre

Diamond Information Center Luncheon Honoring Carey Mulligan’s Academy Award Nomination

It’s been a very busy weekend for so many stars.

British actress Carey Mulligan attended the “Diamond Information Center Luncheon” which was held in her honour as Academy Award Nominee.

The star looked the most uncomfortable I’ve ever seen her on the red carpet wearing a yellow striped Bottega Veneta Spring 2010 dress.

I don’t like this on Carey. It dress feel more appropriate for a summer fete, plus it’s feel really inconsistent with looks we’ve previously seen from Carey.

This was definitely a stylish choice. I don’t believe Carey would choose this look as it’s way too girlie.

I can picture this on Paris Hilton. She loves a sunshine yellow.

This LBD by Gianfranco Ferre is more like it for Carey.

I’m also liking the smokey eye which I don’t think she’s sported before.

A Sofia Coppola for Louis Vuitton black suede clutch and strappy heels complete the look.

Runway To “Remember Me” New York Premiere – Emilie de Ravin In Gianfranco Ferré

“Lost” actress Emilie de Ravin walked the red carpet last night at the New York premiere of “Remember Me”.

No doubt all eyes were on her co-star in this movie Robert Pattinson, but I was more interested in her Gianfranco Ferré Spring 2010 dress.

The cream asymmetrical dress is also draped and knotted, but doesn’t feel to busy.

I love the dress, not so crazy about her Burberry Prorsum’s twisted band platform sandals as I wish they were slightly lighter in colour.

Maybe these particular heels were worn to complement the twisted detail on the skirt of her dress, but I would’ve picked a strappy sandal that didn’t look so heavy.

It’s been a while since Emilie looked this good on the red carpet, but is it enough for you to consider her for BDOTW?

Gianfranco Ferré Fall 2010

The thing about being a blogger is that you can go from front row, to 5th row to standing all in one day and we gratefully accept every position we get.

Bryan Boy more known to frequent the front row, but also stands at some shows gave me a valuable advice. “If you are standing, stand by the photographers pit”.

It’s the best piece of advice I’ve been given because not only do you get to take great pictures, but you get to see the models up close and see the stunning details.

I stood by the photographers pit at the Gianfranco Ferre Fall 2010 show, which was one of my favourites of Milan Fashion Week.

Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi presented an amazing collection of mostly black, nudes, gold, tan and beige.

I don’t know why the fashion world doesn’t rave about these two very talented designers.

This was one of their more wearable collections to date, with many sleek tailored pieces which were both understated and timeless.

I felt that the elegant gowns were sign that they are making serious bid for red carpet contention. I loved the black one-sleeved black gown with a gold-braided leather side panel.

Apart from gowns we were also presented with high waisted pants, sweater dresses with leather sleeves, wool coats with furry sleeves (very much a trend in Milan) black leather skirt suits, leather dresses, skirts, woven heels and bags.

Touches of gold were evident though-out the collection.

At the re-see the following day, I couldn’t help for gush over the Look 27, Look 28 and Look 29 which were fully beaded – by hand.

Amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail. I have a new designer crush.

Runway To 2010 BAFTAs – Rebecca Hall In Gianfranco Ferré

Tonight at the 2010 BAFTAs, I discovered why I don’t like black on the red carpet.

Because when photographed it does no justice to the wearer.

Rebecca Hall was A-FRIGGIN-MAZING on the red carpet tonight wearing a peaked shouldered Gianfranco Ferré Fall 2009 gown, but none of the detail nor the splendor of this look translates onto the photo.

I literally scream “Nooooo” when I saw this picture.

The dress was cut low to the back and it also had a satin fold detail on the train.

Boucheron jewels completed the look.

One of my top 3 of the night.
