In Rihanna’s Closet – Balmain, Gareth Pugh, Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs & Stella McCartney

Balmain Spring 2010 Presentation, Paris

Rihanna skipped out on New York Fashion Week, but headed to Paris to view the Balmain Spring 2010 presentation.

She was fully decked out in Balmain wearing a Balmain black tuxedo blazer with a jewel brooch detail on the satin lapel, paired with Balmain Fall 2009 harem pants, Louboutin heels and a Balenciaga Brilliant Pouchette Bague.

I’m not crazy about her blonde streaks, but this is the best I have seen it styled.

Gareth Pugh Spring 2010 Presentation, Paris

Rihanna also attended Gareth Pugh’s Spring 2010 presentation.

She wore a very risqué sheer Gareth Pugh’s Spring 2010 modified dress, which left little to the imagination.

Normally we see look toned down off the runway, but Rihanna does the opposite.

Her look was paired with her favourite Balenciaga Brilliant Pouchette Bague, and Fendi cut-out heels.

Berlin Airport, Germany

On her way to Paris Rihanna arrived at Berlin Airport wearing a grey Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 sweater worn as a mini dress.

Gold jewelery accessorized her look, as did a crazy hat and Christian Louboutin leopard print ankle boots.

Marc Jordan and Katharina Harf’s Wedding, Venice

Rihanna wrapped a black shrug around her shoulders, but we can see enough of her black and grape Alexander Wang one-shoulder dress.

She wore grape lippy to match her dress, Louboutin pigalle heels and carried her Balenciaga clutch again.

Leaving Da Silvano Restaurant, New York

Hiding under her hoodie Rihanna wore Giuseppe Zanotti leopard print ankle boots with her cut-off denim shorts, ghetto gold and sheer top.

2nd Annual House Of Hype Directors Dinner, New York

It’s really hard to explain this sequined Jasmine di Milo Fall 2009 jumpsuit, or the reason why Rihanna decided to wear it with lace glasses.

I guess it’s one of those fashion forward moments she has that just don’t work for me.

Out & About, New York

Like many other celebrities, Rihanna is embracing the thigh-high boot trend as she was spotted in New York wearing a pair of Stella McCartney Perforated thigh-high boots, with a flouncy grey dress.

2009 GQ Men Of The Year Awards

Sporting longer locks which were swept to the side, Lily Allen was named “Woman of the Year” and the “2009 GQ Men Of The Year Awards” in London last night.

The face of Chanel “Coco Cocoon” bag collection walked the red carpet wearing a black sheer double strapped Chanel Resort 2010 gown.

Had Lily wondered what that extra piece of material was for on the front of her gown, she’ll wonder no more when she sees her picture in the papers this morning.

Many of you are horrified that Lily is the face of Chanel, and when she ruins a perfectly wonderful gown like this I have to agree.

Freida Pinto makes a vast improvement from her last outing, which lets face it wouldn’t have been too difficult.

I love that she took a risk with this Christopher Kane black layered dress, but the hair is a bit too prim and proper for such an edgy look.

The actress pairs her dress with Rupert Sanderson Khyber cutout sandals.

I would’ve much rather seen Freida wear something more colourful, but I think she just pulls this off.

Louise Redknapp also opted for a shortened Christopher Kane Fall 2009 asymmetrical dress.

Her mesh dress with black velvet trims was paired with YSL Trib Two heels and Bottega Veneta clutch.

Katherine Jenkins appears to love the Victoria Beckham dress collection as much as the designer herself, as this is the 2nd VB dress we’ve seen her wear.

This time she opted for violet Giral strapless shot silk dress.

I’m guessing Katherine likes this collection so much because the dresses caters for those with a larger bust.

When I tried on a strapless dress from Victoria’s Spring 2009 collection I could barely fill the bodice.

The only way I recognised that Gemma Arterton was wearing Louis Vuitton was by her clutch and heels.

For some reason the LV pizazz is lost on Gemma, and this ruffle collared jacket suddenly becomes quite ordinary.

I just feel like raising the collar, its not meant to be so flat.

Victoria Hesketh aka Little Boots was one of my favourites at this event wearing a Josh Goot multi coloured printed ruched mini dress.

The surprising feature is that the back of the dress and sleeves are plain black.

The singer completes her look with an Alexander McQueen knuckle duster clutch.

Pixie Lott opted for a bedazzling Collette Dinnigan Spring 2009 mini dress coved in diamanté embellishments.

Ankle boots and studded cuffs complete the look.

We first saw this dress worn by Taylor Swift.

Much like Leighton Meester’s MTV Movie Awards Emilio De La Morena dress, Alexandra Burke’s black and white mesh Emilio Pucci dress is quite cheeky.

I’m really scared to see what this dress looked like from the back.

A turtleneck? In yesterday’s soaring heat?

I feel hot just looking at Kelly Osbourne wearing this Jasmine di Milo’s Fall 2009 dress.

Dita von Teese will be full of admiration for Kelly Brook’s waist reducing dress.

The pink rubber printed Atsuko Kudo Couture dress appears to have a built in corset to give Kelly an hour glass shape.

I bet she gave off a sexy wiggle when she walked in this dress.

Even though Eva Mendes was the “big star” at this event I was more impressed by people like Little Boots and Kelly Brook for giving us something new.

Eva wore a stunning maroon shimmering gown.

The colour was sublime on her, but the wow factor was missing. Eva can do this kind of look in her sleep.

Daisy Lowe opted for a space-aged look, which she paired down with black pumps.

Rachel Stevens hair and make-up is quite outstanding. I love the transformation maybe the newlywed decided to spice up her image.

Her LND with a voluminous skirt is oh so cute.

Tamara Ecclestone wore a striking Preen black and white lightening-print bandage-style dress paired with black ankle boots and a matching clutch.

Elizabeth Hurley’s strapless but dress is cute enough, but why I’m I so bored?

Lady GaGa In Berlin

Lady Gaga who’s renowned for her quirky style made a television appearance on ‘Monster Cable’ at the IFA Fair in Berlin, Germany this week.

She wore an ivory and black swirl embroidered Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 dress with a blouson skirt and sculptured shoulders.

Her look was paired with candyfloss pink lips, black platform heels and her trademark shades.

The real highlight of the look was her crimped platinum bob, which made her look like a cute little poodle.

But would’ve we expect nothing less from the OTT singer?

GaGa later added pink thigh-high boots to her look, when she launched her own earphones range.

The singer arrived at Tegel Airport in Berlin on Sunday wearing a Village People leather biker hat, paired with black cigarette pants, black oversized shades and a Jasmine di Milo Fall 2009 butterfly vest.

The runway vest was paired with a strapless black jumpsuit, but when you’re Lady GaGa anything goes.

At an event last night GaGa paired a Maison Michel Fall 2009 lace veil with a lace fingerless gloves, a rubber dress and a rubber black cape.

She must have been sweating bucket loads.

Only she can get away with this type of look.

Who Wore Jasmine Di Milo Better? Natalie Imbruglia or Talulah Riley


Natalie Imbruglia wore an olive green Jasmine Di Milo Spring 2009 asymmetrical dress to the Grand Opening of Atlantis in Dubai back in November, with black Jimmy Choo satin diamante platform sandals.

At this point she was still sporting her newly blonde do, which I could never embrace.

On the other hand Talulah Riley’s newly blonde do, was a change for the better. She debut her new locks on the red carpet, for the London Premiere of The Boat That Rocked, back in March, wearing the navy runway version of this dress.

I much prefer the navy colour, plus Natalie’s hair makes this an easy win for Talulah.

Zoe Saldana’s "Star Trek" European Promotional Tour

Whilst we’ve been drooling over Drew Barrymore’s red carpet adventures, Zoe Saldana has also had an outstanding week, promoting Star Trek in Europe.

Her best moment came last night at the Berlin premiere, where she wowed everyone wearing a red Prabal Gurung Fall 2009 cocktail dress, with Bulgari jewels which included a yellow gold and diamond pave Celtaura bracelet, and yellow gold and diamond pave earrings.

The asymmetrical mini dress had a large exaggerated folds on the shoulder, and a tiered skirt.

Her look was completed with a updo, and black strappy Pucci heels.

Best Dressed Of The Week just got even tougher.

Earlier in the week Zoe also looked gorgeous at the Paris photo call for Star Trek, wearing a charcoal grey Giambattista Valli sheath dress, which had a criss cross bodice, and stunning Fendi grey heels.

Another magic moment came at the Moscow premiere. Zoe amped things up a notch, by wearing a stunning Jasmine Di Milo Fall 2007 nude dress, with a black tulle overlay, which creates an interesting design.

Sparkling Giambattista Valli heels completed the look.

She started off the week in a Akris Pre-Fall 2009 berry ensemble consisting of a chiffon blouse, with cut-outs in the sleeves, and a tweed skirt to the Moscow photo call.

What a fantastic week.
