Vivian Hsu In Christian Dior & Lanvin – “Warriors Of The Rainbow: Seediq Bale” Venice Film Festival

Vivian Hsu graces the 2011 Venice Film Festival to promote her new movie, “Warriors Of The Rainbow: Seediq Bale.”

The actress attended the photocall looking slightly overdressed wearing a Christian Dior Spring 2008 gown.

Surely this pale pink gown embellished gown would’ve been better suited for a premiere.

I guess her motto was “go big or go home.”

The pink gown is heavenly against her skin-tone. She’s really working this gown as it looks stunning on her.

She dazzled with Piaget jewels.

Who Wore Lanvin Better? Maggie Gyllenhaal or Rihanna

Maggie Gyllenhaal chose this Lanvin Resort 2010 dress to attend the “Crazy Heart” LA Premiere back in December 2009.

The one-shouldered silver halter-neck dress features a fringed-neckline, belted midsection and an asymmetrical, ruffled side split.

Maggie paired her look with taupe, tribal-inspired beaded Lanvin heels and wore her hair pulled back into a chic bun.

Shimmery silver eye-shadow and a hint of pink lipstick completed her look.

Rihanna wore the same dress whilst on vacation in Portofino, Italy last week but opted not to wear the accompanying belt.

The singer added a bevy of accessories including Prada Baroque sunglasses, strappy metallic Christian Louboutin heels, a chunky silver cuff on her wrist and an assortment of rings.

She wore her hair piled high above her head in a curly ponytail and donned red lipstick which matched her nails.

Maggie looks gorgeous but loses major points for the unsightly creases on the front.

Rihanna wins for me because of her fun but glamorous approach and the addition of her edgy and on trend accessories. It’s a great vacation look for a night out on the town.

Beyonce Knowles In Lanvin – 2011 MTV Video Music Awards

Best Dressed Award
Beyonce Knowles used the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards to announce that she is pregnant.

I couldn’t be happier for her. Its news I’ve been waiting to hear for a very long time.

The mother-to-be was beaming with joy and pride wearing a Lanvin Fall 2011 gown.

I love the bright orange colour of her one-shoulder silk crepe cut-away gown. It was the only look I liked at this lackluster event.

Her big announcement was matched by some amazing big bold Lorraine Schwartz jewels which included an emerald ring which provided a nice contrasting to her bold hue of her gown and platinum ?and white?diamond tassel ?earrings.

A side sweeping ponytail and Rene Caovilla ivory platform heels with Swarovski crystal and pearl details completed her look.

Maternity watch will be very interesting.

I’m glad she let us know she is pregnant by making it obvious rather than hide her bump in oversized dresses like Bryce Dallas Howard and Aishwarya Rai did.

Portofino Style: Rihanna Wearing YSL & Lanvin

After spending the week cruising around the on the French Riviera, Rihanna docked in Portofino, Italy yesterday.

She was the center of attention as she walked through the crowds wearing a stunning YSL Spring 2011 white backless jumpsuit with cut-out detailing.

The singer looks great, but a belt would’ve enhanced this look significantly.

RiRi added her favourite Fendi platform sandals, Prada Baroque sunglasses and a tie-dye Christian Louboutin ‘Miss Rope’ bag.

As night fell, Rihanna changed into another haltered look.

This time she wore a champagne silk Lanvin Resort 2010 gown with a fringe neckline.

She kept the same piled high hairstyle and red lips, but opted to wear strappy Christian Louboutin sandals.

Who Wore Lanvin Better? Gemma Arterton or Sandra Bullock

Gemma Arterton chose this strapless black Lanvin jumpsuit to wear to the “Tamara Drewe” 2010 Toronto Film Festival Premiere back in September 2010.

The British actress went for a minimalist look, wearing barely any makeup and accessorizing with simple black pumps and a feathered clutch.

A simple ponytail completed her look.

Sandra Bullock wore the same jumpsuit to attend the premiere of “The Change-Up” last month.

The actress looked incredibly chic, pairing the jumpsuit with black strappy heels, intricate gold bracelets and hooped earrings.

She wore her hair down in sleek, loose waves and finished her look with soft pink lipstick.

The fit of the jumpsuit is off on Gemma, especially around the legs and she definitely needs more exciting accessories to brighten up her look, so my vote is going to Sandra.

If you can’t make up your mind, click on the image above to see more pictures of these ladies in their Lanvin jumpsuit.

Who Wore Lanvin Better? Courteney Cox or Kate Moss

Courteney Cox certainly brought something new to the red carpet instead of her usual head-to-toe black, when she attended the 2011 Critics’ Choice Television Awards back in June wearing a Lanvin python-print silk dress.

The ‘Cougar Town’ actress ensured the print was the stand out part of her look.

Her dress wasn’t overshadowed by fussy accessories as she only added a waist defining light-grey grosgrain belt and black strappy sandals.

Kate Moss wore the same Lanvin dress whilst out to dinner at Zuma in London with BFF Sir Phillip Green and her husband Jamie Hince.

The Moss magic was in full effect as she pulls off this effortlessly casual look in her trademark, ‘shabby chic’, ‘just threw this on’ style.

Her dress was paired with a Chanel handbag, Christian Louboutin’s heels and a white blazer.

I think both the ladies look great.

Courtney gets points for breaking out of her comfort zone, but I prefer how Kate wore this as a drop-waist dress so she wins for me.

Sidewalk Style: Freida Pinto Wearing Lanvin

Freida Pinto was spotted headed to a television studio in New York City last week to continue to promote her new movie, “Rise Planet of The Apes.”

She looked divine wearing a Lanvin magenta silk/jersey dress from the “22 Faubourg” Spring 2011 Pre-Collection.

Her chic dress was paired rose coloured Manolo Blahnik strappy sandals and a snakeskin Tod’s bag.

Freida’s L’Oreal kissed brunette locks super glossy in the Manhattan sunshine.

Nina Garcia In Lanvin & Heidi Klum In Roland Mouret – Project Runway Season 9

Nina Garcia and Heidi Klum have upped the fashion ante on Season 9 of Project Runway.

Last week Nina was stunning wearing a Lanvin strapless dress from the Fall 2011 collection with a sparkling crystal floral detail just below the cut-out on the bodice.

Some of you might consider Nina to be slightly overdressed, but I have to say I love the look.

It’s perfect for a show which is all about showcasing fashion.

Heidi opted for Roland Mouret Macha stretch dress from the Spring 2011 collection.

The fitted sleeveless dress with artful folds around the neckline is let down by the grey pumps.

Heidi has had some inspiring footwear choices in the past, but this is not one of them.

I’m also not a fan of the bright red lips with her fuchsia pink dress.
