Runway To 2009 VH1 Hip Hop Honors Show – Ashanti In Louis Vuitton

Def Jam’s 25th anniversary celebration brought out an all-star lineup of artists who performed at the recent Vh1’s Hip Hop Honors.

Ashanti had an on-stage reunion with Ja Rule as they performed a medley of their hits “Down For You” and “Always On Time”.

She took to the stage wearing lace skin-tight pants, Givenchy Western platform sandals and a Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 blazer.

The camel and black ruched blazer has a ruffle collar which stood up on the runway.

Unlike some crazy artists who are shaving one-side of their heads, Ashanti wisely decided to braid hers.

My hairstylist told me that many girls go to her salon asking for a Cassie do, and each time she refuses to do it.

I would do exactly the same. It’s a ridiculous trend.

2009 Freedom Award

This is a very rare moment.

I don’t really like Demi Moore in this Lanvin Spring 2010 draped gown.

The gown is very sexy on the runway with the thigh-high split, but I don’t get that same vibe from Demi and I ALWAYS get that vibe from Demi.

The one-sleeved gown is just hanging off her not really saying anything to me, on the runway the look felt more powerful.

Camilla Belle proves that her day trip to Paris for Fashion Week to see the Louis Vuitton Spring 2010 presentation was not completely wasted, as she returned with this stunning black LV Fall 2009 sleeveless dress.

I love the texture of the dress which stops it from being another boring black dress, and the way the skirt becomes narrow at the hem.

Cancan heels and dash of red on the lips complete this look.

Carla Gugino is wearing a beautiful silk mini dress with an exquisite jeweled neckline, but she sticks a knife in my heart by not only wearing tights, but tights WITH peep-toes.

*shakes head*

Louis Vuitton Spring 2010 Front Row & After Party

Front Row

I will assume Leighton Meester traveled all the way to Paris for the Louis Vuitton Spring 2010 presentation, as I haven’t yet seen her front row at any other shows.

Despite the long flight and jet-lag Leighton knocks it out of the fashion ball park in floral Resort 2010 dress with a ruffle detail cascading down the front.

She paired her dress with a belted vest from the same collection.

I love everything about this look.  Even the sandals paired with socks, but that grey bag just makes me shiver.

A cute clutch or no bag at all would have been preferred.

I’m sure many of you will go crazy over Freida Pinto’s Fall 2009 look consisting of an electric blue jersey top paired with a matching layered chiffon skirt.

I think the look is just OK.

I’m more drawn to the bright colour, the open-toe boots and bag, as the hair just ruins the look for me plus the top is a little tight about the bust.

I saved going gaga for Camilla Belle who wore my favourite look from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 collection.

Camilla never has a day off look fabulous, but I just wish she hadn’t worn those shades.

Katy Perry wore a metallic puff sleeve top which wasn’t presented on the runway paired with a black pencil skirt.

I love the contrast between the futuristic top and the classic skirt.

Natalia Vodianova decided not to belt her LV Fall 2009 nude dress with a textured black yoke.

I like the look both ways.

Rinko Kikuchi is the second person to rock this LV Fall 2009 blue and pink dress with a black lace overlay.

I’m glad she wasn’t so bold to wear it as presented on the runway, as we all know Rinko likes to take a risk.

Last season Gong Li arrived at the LV show wearing a chic denim look.

This time opted for a sophisticated black coat/dress from the Fall 2009 collection which she paired with Cancan heels.

Even thought Anastasia Gorbacheva watered down the LV Fall 2009 runway look, she did it for all the right reason.

I really love this look. Those pattern leggings are gorgeous.

Daisy Lowe also wore the LV Cancan heels, but paired hers with an ivory skirt and black blazer.

This look is surprisingly demure considering she wore leopard print pants at Dolce & Gabbana’s show.

I thought she would’ve loved to have worn the adventurous pieces at LV.

Maybe Zoe Saldana was down in the dumps as the paparazzi failed to recognise her when I saw her in Paris, because her smile seems strained.

The Star Trek star opted for a rather cute playsuit with a ribboned neck tie.

After-Party

Zoe Saldana got back into her groove posing fiercely at the show’s after-party wearing a LV Fall 2009 dress.

I love her gold accessories, the ruffles sleeved and the one-poufy shoulder detail, but were’s the pom-pom?

Camilla Belle opted for a grey knotted and ruched LV Fall 2009 dress for her after-party look.

Love the hair and make-up with this look.

Natalia Vodianova arrived with her husband Justin Portman wearing another nude and black LV Fall 2009 look.

This time it was a velvet mini dress was paired with patterned tights and Cancan heels.

Gong Li wore this navy LV Fall 2009 dress with a poufy hem.

The dress is gorgeous, but the boots are a tad much when the dress has so much detail.

I guess she decided on the boots as torrential rain, thunder and lighting hit Paris last night.

Thankfully my train was pulling out of Gare du Nord on the 2013 as this started to happen.

2009 Pride Of Britain Awards

Putting away her sexy corset dresses for the night, Kelly Brook wore a black Louis Vuitton Fall 2008 dress which had a peplum at the waist, and a panel of embellishments on the front of her dress.

Her dress was paired with Christian Dior Glam booties.

You may remember that Satsuki Mitchell wore this same dress to the “Defiance” London Premiere back in January this year.

I have several problems with Katherine Jenkins and her Jil Sander sculpted dress.

Firstly she would have looked amazing in the orange dress. So many people wore black on this red carpet, so she would have really stood out in orange.

The most important structured drape on one side of the dress looks really limp, therefore ruining the whole effect of the dress.

Lastly she folded the detail on the shoulder when it should have stood up like on the runway.

This is such a great dress, but she didn’t do it any justice. She might as well have just worn a pencil dress for all the love she is giving to this architectural masterpiece.

Katherine’s look was paired with YSL heels and a black clutch.

I would have been totally in love with Louise Redknapp in her Peter Pilotto digital print dress, had she not worn those ankle boots.

She’s not a particularly tall lady and those boots make her legs look really short.

Dannii Minougue is stunning as always wearing a leopard print strapless Lisa Ho Spring 2009 gown.

The Aussie continues to support designers from her home country both on the red carpet and on the X Factor.

Dannii co-X Factor judge Cheryl Cole also hit the red carpet.

I love the her hot-off-the-runway (2 days to be exact) one-shouldered Chapurin Spring 2010 LBD with the sheer corseted panel on the waist, but it still lacks the wow factor I usually get from Cheryl.

Maybe my expectations are too high, as her everyday style is so impeccable.

Kimberly Walsh of Girls Aloud to walk the red carpet at this event and she wore a cute asymmetrical LBD, with a large rosette detail on the shoulder.

This dress was not a runway dress, but I remember it from the Temperley London Fall 2009 presentation I attended in February were I took a picture of Kimberley exact dress.

Nicola Roberts attended the Vivienne Westwood Spring 2010 show this weekend in Paris.

Bizarrely she wore a Vivienne Westwood Gold Label Lily wedding gown, which is the shorter version of Carrie Bradshaw’s wedding gown.

Her pretty wedding dress was given an edgy as she carried a Alexander McQueen skull knuckle duster whipsnake clutch, and Christian Louboutin Candy Stud Pumps.

Alexandra Burke needs to fire both her make-up artist and her stylist, because on this evidence neither are doing her any justice.

Yes her gown is white, but that doesn’t mean she needs to colour co-ordinate her eye shadow.

Black pumps with a white gown?  Really?

REALLY?

I applaud Myleene Klass for wearing such a risqué dress on a cold and rainy night, but this LBD screams I want to be on the front page in the morning.

Her feathered clutch is adorable though.

Mr & Mrs Kay aka Tess Daly and Vernon Kay walked the red carpet together still looking every much the loved up couple.

He wore a midnight blue suit, whilst she looked gorgeous in a nude shimmering fitted dress with a ruffled bib.

Do shoes come in a colour other than black these days?  I wonder because they seem to be paired with everything on the red carpet.

Socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson looked very happy to be at this event.

The socialite paired a Azzedine Alaia dress with hot red Charlotte Olympia shoes.

Michelle Keegan kept warm from the damp weather by wearing her cute pink Lipsy London heart layer dress which has a bejewelled waistband, with a black blazer.

Abbey Clancy continues to prove that she doesn’t own a dress that doesn’t expose her underwear.

I’m loving that new hair cut on Kara Tointon.  It’s much more sophisticated that the chavy look she had on Eastenders.

The actress thankfully went against the LBD theme and wore a silver sequined fan print dress.  With black pumps of course.

Newlyweds Gary Linekar and Danielle Bux walked the red carpet together.

He looked dapper in a navy suit, whilst she look very sexy in a strapless Dolce & Gabbana dress paired with black sash around her waist.

Although Emma Bunton went with the LBD trend, she did add a gold sequined cape to make her look more interesting.

Lisa Snowdon might as well have worn a LBD as her nude Whistles Abstract sequin dress and those thick tights are not doing her any favours.

What happened to the red carpet sex kitten?

Fan Bingbing’s Promotion Of “Wheat”

Fan Bingbing joined her cast mates at the premiere of her new film “Wheat” last week, which opened in cinemas yesterday.

Many of you know I have a massive girl crush on the beautiful Fan.

She always looks so amazing on the red carpet, and admire the fact that she doesn’t stick to the same formula.

As you can see from these two looks she can go from quirky a Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 look with YSL heels, to a stunning Valentino gown paired with an exquisite diamond necklace.

You may remember that Rachel Weisz wore this same gown during Cannes Film Festival.

In promoting her new film, Fan has appeared on two major magazine covers.

The first was the September 2009 issue of InStyle China.

She is an absolute knock-out on the cover wearing a embellished wool crepe two-tone dress.

Hair, make-up and accessories are all working together to make this a stunning cover.

Her second cover is the October 2009 issue of L’Officiel China magazine, where she wears a Chanel Fall 2009 look which includes the runway white hat.
