Mango’s Spring 2010 Collection Launch Party

In Madrid this week the stars came out to celebrate the launch of the new Mango collection.

Scarlett Johansson may have been the “major” star at the event, but it was Monica Cruz who stole she show wearing a longer version of the Herve Leger Fall 2009 dress we’ve seen on Miley Cyrus and Julia Stegner.

Penelope’s kid sister paired her dazzling dress with suede Louboutin peep-toes.

Ana Locking wore a beautifully structured grey dress from her own Fall 2009 collection with both the grey tights and shoe boots they were presented with.

Scarlett Johansson continues to lose her sparkle for me.

I understand she has to promote Mango, but does she have to look like Miss Moneypenny every time?

Surely the could have dressed her in something more interesting and less secretarial.

Every time she promotes Mango it’s like groundhog day.

Dree Hemingway has to be one of the coolest chicks on the planet behind Erin Wasson.

On most those half denim-half leather pants from Mango’s Fall 2009 collection would be a total disaster, but Drew makes them look cool.

Despite that I will never consider trying this look.

Spanish actress Lola Marceli and Clara Courel arrived at this event wearing the same navy Mango sequin mini dress with a sheer mesh back.

They’re even both wearing Louboutin’s.

Let’s hope they weren’t sitting next to each other during the presentation.

Elisabeth Reyes, Maria Jose Suarez and Priscila de Gustin all wore black Mango dresses, but thankfully they were not the same.

The one that stands out is Priscila’s Mango metallic sequin one shoulder dress which she wore with thigh-high boots.

Idoia Montero and Amaia Montero also both wore black, but Amaia added a pop of pink via her heels with her Mango sequin one shoulder dress.

You can see a few images from the Mango Spring 2010 presentation below. It inspiration appears to be military meets ‘Little House on the Prairie’.

Very cute.

Who Wore Herve Leger Better? Miley Cyrus or Julia Stegner

This was a very rare moment when I actually liked what Miley Cyrus wore on the red carpet.

The cheeky singer/actress wowed the crowds on at the London premiere of “Hanna Montana: The Movie” wearing a dazzling Herve Leger Fall 2009 embellished dress paired with Sergio Rossi heels.

At the time we debated whether the dress was age appropriate, and 74% of you thought it was.

Model Julia Stegner wore the same mini dress on the red carpet this week at the “GQ Men Of The Year 2009” held in Germany.

I much prefer Miley’s grey pumps to Julia’s black booties, so Miley surprisingly wins for me.

“2012” LA Premiere

Only Camilla Belle can out do herself in the space of a week.

She started off looking divine in Jason Wu, and last night she looked divalicious in Alexander McQueen.

If you’re anything like me you have been scared of tthe magnificent McQueen Spring 2010 collection getting into the wrong hands. Thankfully this is not the case.

With the styling the looks felt quite hard on the runway, but Camilla brings a softness to her multi-coloured dress with the bustle skirt and beaded shoulders.

Thandie Newton is the latest celebrity to join the Prabal Gurung fan club after Leighton Meester joined yesterday.

The stunning actress never disappoints.

She walked the red carpet wearing a black and white strapless Prabal Gurung Spring 2010 brush painted rose print draped dress.

As you can see from the other Gurung dresses, a bow accent is featured on this dress.

Had Dania Ramirez not worn a Herve Leger Spring 2009 dress we have seen countless times on reality stars and D list celebrities I would’ve said that I loved this dress on her.

At this point I’m so over this dress she’s lucky to be featured.

I love Amanda Peet’s stunning white gown, but it feels a tad out of place on this red carpet were everyone else opted for shorter sassier looks.

Whenever I see turquoise necklaces I always think of  Eva Mendes at the Golden Globes.

Runway To Club LIV Miami – Jennifer Lopez In Herve Leger

Prior to Jennifer Lopez wearing a black Herve Leger dress to the “This Is It” LA premiere, she and husband Marc Anthony arrived at Club LIV in Miami on Saturday night.

The diva was there to showcase the video for her new single “Fresh Out the Oven” featuring Pitbull.

Also in attendance besides Jennifer’s manager Benny Medina, actor Jason Statham, and Kim Kardashian.

Kim looked stunning as always, but all eyes were on Jennifer wearing a one-sleeved Herve Leger Fall 2009 mirrored mini dress, which was slightly modified from the runway, with black Christian Louboutin Differa sandals.

Before the couple headed to Club LIV, Jennifer supported Marc as he performed at the American Airlines Arena in Miami.

It was there she was spotted wearing a gold Herve Leger Camille beaded one-shouldered dress.

The colour is beautiful on her and I love what she did to her hair here.

It looks like someone is developing a Herve Leger obsession.

Thankfully it’s one we can all be happy about as she looks outstanding.

“This Is It” LA Premiere

It was a windy and rainy night in LA yesterday, but the Queen of the wind machine didn’t have a problem.

Jennifer Lopez looks stunning as ever wearing black Herve Leger beaded bandage dress paired with the same Herve Leger slouchy boots with a chain detail from the runway and a large black clutch.

Paula Abdul didn’t get the ‘wear black memo’, as she proudly walked the red carpet wearing a cobalt blue Temperley London Spring 2009 strapless Grecian dress with a embellished bodice.

Her dress was paired with pink Louboutin’s and a silver clutch.

I make that 2 for 2 for Paula, she’s having an amazing week despite the slightly squashed twins.

Vivica A Fox opted for a one-shouldered Balmain LBD with a silver panel, paired with Balenciaga Fall 2008 which celebrities fell in love with a year ago.

Paris Hilton channeled her inner Liz Hurley and brought a bit of fun to this red carpet by arriving wearing vintage Gianni Versace safety pin dress.

It’s not like Paris to cover up her legs, but like I said before it was a cold night in LA so she paired her dress with black tights and black Louboutin ankle boots.

Jennifer Love Hewitt and Comedian Jamie Kennedy arrived wearing jeans and Michael Jackson tees.

Ashley Tisdale paired a gold studded skirt with a Michael Jackson tee and Louboutin ankle boots.

Monique Coleman looked very grown up wearing a black leather Kova & T bustier dress paired with studded sandals.

I love her hair here.

Katy Perry arrived wearing a vintage Christian Lacroix gown which felt a bit OTT for this event considering some came in graphic tees.

Rome Film Festival – “Triage” Premiere

When Megan Fox was wearing gowns with thigh-high splits during her “Transformers” promotional tour, many of you said she was trying to hard to be sexy.

The same can not be said about Paz Vega, because even if she dressed in a bin liner she still would be sexy. It just comes naturally and oozes from her every pore.

Last night she owned the red carpet wearing a black Gucci Resort 2010 backless black long sleeve gown with a dangerously high split.

Her look was paired with diamond bracelets and Gucci Fall 2009 patent pumps.  I would’ve preferred a strappy sandal like the one presented on the runway, but other than that she’s perfection.

Sofia Milos matches Paz in the sexy style stakes wearing a midnight blue and black striped Herve Leger by Max Azria Fall 2008 bandage dress, which has a high collar with a corsage detail on the bodice.

You may remember back in December 2008 Jenny McCarthy wore this same dress on the red carpet.

Ingrid Muccitelli wore a black Balenciaga Fall 2008 dress with a fold detail on the hip, an embellished detail on the waist and a thigh-high split.

I love her dress but those sheer embroidered arm warmers leave me so confused.

You’re wearing a stunning dress, and gorgeous heels why ruin it?

Margherita Buy’s cream ombre asymmetrical gown is completely embroidered with a stunning floral beaded detail.

She’s not as sexy as the others, but she needn’t be when she can look this spectacular with no make-up and a stunning gown.

Social Events Of The Week

Curtis School Summer Fair, LA

Isn’t it too hot to be wearing head-to-toe leather in LA?

Not for Victoria Beckham it seems.

The mother of 3 was spotted out in LA wearing a Balmain Spring 2009 leather jacket, with Dsquared² Fall 2009 leather pants.

“Dare” Screening, East Hampton

Emmy Rossum is giving us so much variety on the red carpet lately, that it’s hard not to be impressed.

The brunette beauty looked gorgeous on the red carpet wearing a teal Lela Rose Spring 2009 fitted dress, with a ruffled detail on the shoulder.

Her look was paired with gold accessories including Christian Louboutin Fortuna platform sandals and a gold clutch.

The Art Of Elysium’s GENESIS Event, LA

Sophia Bush should really be the campaign girl for Max Azria as she is – along with Amanda Bynes – so loyal to the brand.

Just last week she wore a BCBG Max Azria gown, this weekend she wore a Max Azria lace mini dress and for this event she wore a black and white Herve Leger bandage dress from the Resort 2010 collection.

Burgundy suede Trib Two’s complete this stunning look.

19th Annual ‘Divas Simply Singing!’ AIDS Benefit Concert, LA


Actress Sheryl Lee Ralph paired purple strappy sandals with her purple Tadashi Shoji Fall 2009 satin draped dress.

The colour is exquisite.

Women Of The Year Lunch, London


I love Katherine Jenkins’ French Connection sequined dress.

It’s cute, young and fun plus it has shoulder pads, but the hair really lets her down.

It looks like she had an electric shock.

Like almost everyone else on this post she wore Trib Two’s.

10th Anniversary of Estee Lauder Raising Funds for Breast Cancer, New York


Last year Elizabeth Hurley seemed to have her sensitivity chip missing when she arrived at the Global Illumination Initiative to raise awareness for breast cancer in London wearing a breast enhancing Giambattista Valli dress.

For this Breast Cancer event she was dressed demurely wearing a pink sequined fitted Naeem Khan dress paired with nude heels.

The Surfrider Foundation’s 25th Anniversary Gala, LA


Audrina Patridge is the 4th person on this post to pair their look with YSL Trib Two’s proving that when it comes to walking the red carpet, these YSL Trib Two’s are still as popular as they were 2 seasons ago.

This is due to the fact that they are so comfortable to walk in.

The “actress” wore a sexy silver Obakki Spring 2010 strapless ruche bodice dress and carried a matching clutch.
