Hilary Swank In Isaac Mizrahi – American Cancer Society “Choose You” Preview

Hilary Swank attended preview of the first-ever ‘Choose You’ documentary. The Oscar winning actress was the Executive Producer of the project.

She wore a summery Isaac Mizrahi Spring 2011 dress at the screening, which was held at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City last night.

The nude short sleeve dress was covered with yellow, white and grey embellishments which created a beautiful floral pattern.

Hilary wisely opted to only add VRAM for GRAY Gallery hooped earrings, as the dress should be the main focus.

Satin pumps completed the look.

I wish she’d opted for sandals in this same champagne colour and pulled all her hair back.

Other than that she looks event and season appropriate.

Isaac Mizrahi Spring 2011

Isaac Mizrahi’s Spring 2011 collection was called IM Xerox as his prints looked like they’d been photocopied.

We saw very soft and feminine pieces, but he also incorporated some flirty sexy looks.

On a very mixed colour palette we were presented with long chiffon floral dresses, evening gowns, cocktail dresses, day dresses, silm pant suits, silk maxi skirts and shirts.

Key accessories included collars, clutches, and bracelets.

Front Row: Veronica Webb

Favourites: Embellished short sleeved dress and corseted gown with tulle overlay

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Michelle Obama, Marisa Tomei, Paula Patton, Veronica Webb, Kyra Sedgwick and Michelle Monaghan

The shocker of the week was André Leon Talley who didn’t sit in his usual front row seat. Instead he watched the show from the last row in the Theater.

Has he fallen out with his Vogue colleagues who were either in the first or second row?

Na, I’m assuming he just wanted to focus on the clothes. It can get a bit hectic with photographers in the front row trying to take pictures and others trying to claim front row seats.

2010 MuchMusic Video Awards – Ashley Greene In Isaac Mizrahi

Best Dressed Award
Even though she opted for black pumps – which actually work quite nicely with this look – Ashley Greene was my favourite on the red carpet at the 2010 MuchMusic Video Awards last night.

She could have followed the herd and worn a tight fitting LBD, a Herve Leger bandage dress or another typical designer for events like this but she opted for something different.

The “Twilight” actress wore sexy strapless Isaac Mizrahi Fall 2010 dress to add a bit of Uptown chic to the occasion.

The dress had 3 different colours and textures making this dress really interesting despite the fact that I’m not usually a fan of mixing metals.

I love her hair pulled back showing off her drop earrings and her gold studded clutch completes the look perfectly.

Runway To ‘Rated R’ Seoul Press Conference – Rihanna In Alexandre Vauthier Couture & Isaac Mizrahi

Rihanna is currently in Seoul, South Korea to promote her album latest album ‘Rated R’.

She arrived at a press conference held at Intercontinental Hotel wearing an Alexandre Vauthier black jacket from the recent Spring 2010 Couture presentation, which she paired with a peachy Isaac Mizrahi Spring 2010 skirt.

I love the Alexandre Vauthier jacket. Its very Rihanna with the peeked shoulders making a strong style statement.

The Isaac Mizrahi skirt with the gathered detail is heavenly.

Sadly I only like the pieces separately. Together they don’t work for me.

I understand the she wanted to stay true to her edgier style, whilst giving her fans a look at her soft feminine side, but she should have picked a lane and stayed in it.

This is too confusing.

Her look was paired with Giuseppe Zanotti ankle boots.

With Rihanna there are no grey areas, so do you love it or hate it?

Runway To Fox All Star Party – Lea Michelle In Isaac Mizrahi

“Glee” actress Lea Michelle looks breath-taking wearing one of my favourite looks from the Isaac Mizrahi Spring 2010 collection.

She brought a hint of Parisian flair to the “Fox All Star Party” in LA last night, wearing this coquettish two tone strapless dress with a sweet-heart neckline and delightful rosette detail on the hip.

Her hair was styled into a chic ponytail which showed of her gold complementary earrings.

I love the colour of her bronzed heels, but I don’t actually like the heels themselves.

The look is complete with a Fendi textured clutch.

Yet another worthy BDOTW contender.

We’re seeing some great looks on the red carpet this year and we’re only 2 weeks in.

2009 Emmy Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
January Jones is never boring on the red carpet.

She always wows me and last night was no exception.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress wore a futuristic Versace mint green gown, with flowing skirt and a structured corset.

She gave me one of very few wow moments on the red carpet.

Best Dressed Runner Up/Best Marchesa Award
Olivia Wilde was one of the first actresses to hit the red carpet last night and was my Best Dressed for the whole of E! Live from the Red Carpet show until I saw January.

Her mint green chiffon embroidered Marchesa Spring 2010 gown with an illusion panel on the bodice is simply exquisite.

She wears the gown so well, so elegantly as we would expected from the beautiful actress.

Best Bling/Golden Girl Award
I do like a bit of bling on the red carpet and it was kindly provided by Kristin Chenoweth who sparkled wearing a crystal encrusted Zuhair Murad’s Haute Couture Spring 2009 mini dress, with gunmetal grey heels and a matching clutch.

I’m so glad she wore the dress without the runway belt.

Best Versace/Lady In Red Award
WOW.

Blake Lively is truly back.

After a disappointing 2008, she has continued to wow me in 2009.

Some of you like that Atlanta Housewife on E! will think this is too sexy. I say it’s sexy enough, and she has the body for it so why not wear a stunning red Versace Fall 2009 gown like this.

Best Maternity Award
I’m so glad Heidi Klum didn’t wear a tent like at the Costume Institute Gala.

Being pregnant is not a crime so why should she cover up?

I think she looks stunning in her Marchesa custom-made gown, which bares a slight resemblance to the Resort 2010 gown presented as they both have beaded a beaded bodice.

Her lace train is what I really love about this dress.

Gowns, Maternity, Bridal and accessories. Is there nothing that Georgina Chapman can’t do?

It Took Me A While, But I Love It Award
At first I was really unsure about Kate Walsh’s J. Mendel Spring 2010 crystal blue pleated strapless gown, as I thought it was unflattering.

But the more I looked at it, the more I appreciated the soft draping, and how beautiful the colour looked on her.

The actress paired her dress with and Aldo clutch.

Most Improved Award
Dana Delany is usually a hot mess on the red carpet, but she opted for a stunning purple Basil Soda Fall 2009 Couture strapless gown.

Excluding the embroidered bodice it’s quite a simple gown.

Slinkiest Silhouette Award
I love a mermaid gown that gives the wearer a Jessica Rabbit style silhouette.

Jennifer Carpenter’s Zuhair Murad Fall 2009 one shoulder nude tulle gown does that.

The gown has intricate black beading thought-out with a dramatic rosette detail on the bodice.

Better Than The Runway Award
I was really intrigued by Mila Kunis Monique Lhuillier Fall 2009 maroon tulle gown because of the way she had made it work for her on the red carpet.

I really dislike the runway styling, so I’m glad Mila has made me see this dress in a more positive light.

She accessorized with Fred Leighton jewels.

Interesting Change Of Direction Award
For the first time in a while I actually love Chloe Sevigny’s look.

I’m not one who get carried away with her “style icon” tag, I just judge her look by look and this Isaac Mizrahi Resort 2010 one-shoulder polka dot gown I love.

I also love the fact that it’s not an obvious choice.

50 And Fabulous Award
I have a soft spot for Marcia Gay Harden, she reminds me a lot o Helen Mirren in that she’s not afraid to show off her cleavage, like she does in this sequined Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2009 gown.

I love how the sash gives her a tiny waist, to give her an perfect hourglass figure.

Best Couture Award
This bold blue Basil Soda Fall 2008 gown may have a lot going on for you, but it all works for me.

I got texture, embellishments and it beautiful. All the ingredients need for a stunning couture gown.

Thank God She Pulled Her Hair Back Award
I was so happy that Drew Barrymore wore her hair tied back, because that black stripe she had in her hair last week would’ve been disastrous with this beautiful Monique Lhuillier blush gown.

Best Use Of Tulle Award
Rose Byrne was literally picking her gown up as she walked along the red carpet, as there was so much of it.

I loved this Valentino gown.

It was the perfect colour for her, despite it’s size she didn’t get lost in it, and the embellishment were beautiful.

Curvalicious Award
How can you not love Christina Hendricks? She is just too fabulous for words in her L’Wren Scott navy and black lace gown.

I would’ve adored her in a colourful gown, but she looks this hot it doesn’t matter.

Matchy Matchy Award
Ginnifer Goodwin wore a fuschia pink YSL strapless dress.

The dress matched her Brian Atwood heels and her clutch.

The stunning necklace is what pulls this whole look together and I absolutely adore it.

Best Necklace Award
Mariska Hargitay opted for a Carolina Herrera silver shimmering gown, which fitted her like a glove.

Best Embellished Gown Award
Perrey Reeves wore an ivory Naeem Khan chiffon empire waist short sleeve V-front gown with crystal beading.
