Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2011

Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2011 presentation was as you would expect. Many form-fitting bandage dresses.

How does one recreate the bandage dress season after season?

Max Azria opted for metal chain hardware which adorned most of the looks which gave the bandage dress a tougher edge.

This was an interesting contrast to the soft neutral colour palette of beige, nutmeg plus white, gold, silver, black and brown.

Other than bandages dresses we also saw a beautiful maroon coat, a tan cropped jacket and cropped pants.

Key accessories included sexy strappy sandals, clutches and knee-high boots.

Front Row: Karolina Kurkova, Elsa Pataky and Leigh Lezark

Favourites: black strapless dress with the flared skirt and nude bandage A-line dress

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Kim Kardashian, Diane Kruger, Lea Michele and every other starlet in Hollywood

Elle Macpherson In Herve Leger by Max Azria – Broadcast Awards

Britain Next Top Model host Elle Macpherson was spotted arriving at the Grosvenor hotel in London this week to attend the Broadcast Awards.

She looked breath-taking wearing a forest green Herve Leger by Max Azria gown.

I adore the colour and the embellished details. This is the perfect evening look for Fall.

Kate Mara wore a Herve Leger gown recently to the 2011 SAG Awards which showed us how Herve Leger gowns can go so wrong, but Elle’s look is so very right.

She wore her gown with black strappy sandals, a black and a fur bolero to complete her look.

Stunning…even though her dress is up by her knees.

Kate Mara In Herve Leger by Max Azria – 2011 SAG Awards

Worst Dressed Award
I wasn’t particularly blown away by the looks at the 2011 SAG Awards last night.

There were a lot of meh, just OK looks, but Kate Mara’s Herve Leger by Max Azria Spring 2011 gown caught my eye for all the wrong reasons.

I had a feeling this dress wouldn’t translate well off the runway, and that thought has been proved to right.

The dress makes her appear wider than she is and it’s very unflattering.

Her look was paired with a BCBG MAx Azria clutch.

Kerry Washington In Herve Leger by Max Azria – 22nd Annual Producers Guild Awards

Kerry Washington was out to be noticed on the red carpet at the 22nd Annual Producers Guild Awards.

No one wears a Herve Leger dress to stand in the corner.

This nude Spring 2011 bandage dress is fresh and uber sexy with its nude sheer panels.

Thankfully her Rene Caovilla ivory beaded platform heels with Swarovski crystal details do justice to the dress. Pumps would’ve brought down this look.

Soft curls and flawless make-up completed her look.

I like that Kerry is continuing to step out of her comfort zone.

Jennifer Lopez In Hervé Léger by Max Azria – “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno”

As you know Jennifer Lopez is the newest ‘America Idol’ judge alongside fellow new judge Steven Tyler.

They appeared on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” with long-stand judge Randy Jackson and AI host Ryan Seacrest last night.

The group spoke about how much fun they are having and what great chemistry they have on set.

Jennifer looked radiant wearing a Hervé Léger by Max Azria Resort 2011 dress.

Many of us have long grown tired of the bandage dress, but for some reason I fall in love with the dresses again every time I see them on JLo.

She has the right divalious attitude to pull them off.

Her nude dress with cut-out details and fringing from the hips was paired with nude Louboutin’s.

‘American Idol’ begins its’ tenth season January 19 at 8/7c.

Christian Milian For Latina Magazine February 2011

Christina Milian graces the cover for Latina magazine’s February 2011 wearing a Herve Leger Resort 2011 strapless bandage dress.

In her interview she talks about her marriage failing and states that she will be looking forward to a new start in 2011. She’s focusing on being positive, and putting the past behind her.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On her failed marriage: “No matter what, you can’t change who you are. I know that now. I tried to be someone I wasn’t because I wanted my marriage to work. But ultimately, if it’s not working, it’s not working.”

On the cheating scandal: “I didn’t know anything. But looking back, my gut was telling me something was off. But I thought I could fix it.”

On lessons learned: “I learned a lot about myself this year. I learned what I can handle. I learned how much I can take. I learned who I am and what I will accept for myself and my daughter.”

On what’s next: “I feel brand new. I’ve been to hell and back, but I survived. I’m stronger for it and now I’m ready for the next phase of my life.”

Christian’s Herve Leger dress is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter US and Net-A-Porter International.

Jennifer Lopez In Hervé Léger by Max Azria – National Spokesperson For The Boys & Girls Club Of America Announcement

Denzel Washington announced Jennifer Lopez as a national spokesperson for The Boys & Girls Club Of America in LA earlier today.

The diva wore a cream Hervé Léger by Max Azria velvet geometric dress from the Fall 2010 collection.

I love that Jennifer is not afraid to wear a dress that would accentuate her shapely hips via the ruffled details on her dress.

I find nothing more beautiful than a woman embracing her womanly curves, and that’s exactly what Jennifer is doing here.

I do question why Jennifer is wearing such an overtly sexy dress to an event announcing her as spokesperson for children’s charity, but Jennifer wouldn’t be the almighty diva that she is without added sex appeal and her ‘sexy face.’

It’s may not be BDOTW worthy, but well worthy of my admiration.

Scrap that. I think this is BDOTW worthy.

Vintage JLo.

Brian Atwood ‘Maniac’ pumps complete her look.
