Zhang Ziyi In Marc Bouwer – ‘Dangerous Liaisons’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

There was a time when Toronto Film Festival was a lot less glamorous than its cousins, Cannes and Venice.

Something has changed this year, the gowns are more spectacular, and we are seeing a lot more couture so I couldn’t be happier.

Zhang Ziyi was glamour personified when she took the red carpet ‘Dangerous Liaisons’ premiere yesterday evening during the Toronto Film Festival.

Her ivory gown with bold shoulders, keyhole detail and a bejewelled neckline doesn’t make me go weak at the knees; it has me passed out on the floor.

Zhang Ziyi accessorized with silver jewels and an embellished clutch.

With a fresh face glow she completed her look with retro marcel waves and diamanté nails.

Tika Sumpter In Marc Bouwer – ‘Sparkle’ LA Premiere

Tika Sumpter returned to the red carpet on Thursday evening for the LA premiere of her latest film ‘Sparkle.’

We are kicking ourselves that we missed this last week.

The former ‘Gossip Girl’ actually completely blew me away wearing a stunning red Marc Bouwer Fall 2012 gown.

Pairing a plunging neckline with a thigh-high slit is dangerous territory, but Tika makes it look effortless and not overtly revealing.

I’m in love with the gown’s strong shoulders and gorgeous ruching along the waist.

A sleek ponytail and minimal jewelry complete the look.

A red-carpet star is born.

You can buy Tika’s B Brian Atwood ‘Cassise’ metallic leather chain-strap sandals from Neiman Marcus.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Beyonce Knowles In Marc Bouwer & Jessica Biel In Giambattista Valli Couture

The votes for BDOTW were tied this week.

You couldn’t decide between the glamorous Marc Bouwer gown worn by Beyonce Knowles for her World Humanitarian Day performance, and Jessica Biel’s Giambattista Valli Couture look worn to the ‘Total Recall’ London premiere.

Beyonce’s white sequin gown blew us away, while Jessica’s look was a much-needed improvement considering the many issues we have had with her red-carpet looks prior.

So in the end this was the perfect result.

My personal favourite this week was Jessica in GBV.

Beyonce Knowles In Marc Bouwer – ‘I Was Here’ World Humanitarian Day Performance

Beyoncé Knowles donned white again when she took to the stage at the United Nations General Assembly on Friday in New York City.

The singer performed ‘I Was Here’, which was taped in front of a live audience to premiere August 19 on World Humanitarian Day.

Not only did she leave the audience breathless with her performance, but also her stunning Marc Bouwer Pre-Fall 2012 gown.

Her white micro-sequin long-sleeve gown with bold shoulders and a cut-out detail could be mistaken for a couture gown.

Once again she opted for no accessories, keeping her makeup natural with a sleek ponytail.

An early candidate for BDOTW.

Mary J Blige In Marc Bouwer – 2011 Billboard Music Awards

Questions My Love For Leopard Print Award
At the 2011 Billboard Music Awards Mary J Blige made me question my love of leopard print.

I have always been a fan of leopard print, but this dress is screaming to go back into the wild.

I don’t like the solid panels with the print and I really don’t like the high neckline.

Mary can pull of most looks, but this look is overwhelming her from the print, to the neckline to the bold shoulders.

Katharine McPhee In Marc Bouwer – QVC Red Carpet Style Party

Katharine McPhee opted for a stand out look for the QVC Red Carpet Style Party which was held in LA recently.

The singer grab attention wearing a Marc Bouwer Spring 2011 gown.

Her stunning red gown with a plunging neckline and bold shoulders was paired with nude pumps.

Sexy sandals, bold red lips and smoky eyes would’ve had me falling in head over heels in love with this look.

Runway “Heat” Fragrance Launch – Beyonce Knowles In Marc Bouwer

Beyonce Knowles presented her debut fragrance ‘Heat’ at a star-studded launch party last night in New York City’s Union Square.

Let’s discuss this, because after Beyonce Knowles stunning Grammy Award red carpet and performance looks – sans earrings and silly string in her hair – this feels like step back.

The singer wore a flamenco style asymmetrical Marc Bouwer Spring 2010 red dress.

What makes me laugh about this look is her pose, which is so “America’s Next Top Model” episode one.

I can imagine Miss J saying “Hey girl, do you like my dress?” then imitating her pose in a broke down fashion.

Something had to give with this dress, either it was the bow on the bodice or the asymmetrical ruffled hem because the dress is too cutesy for a woman of her age.

She may have opted for the black Casadei peep-toes to tone down the look somewhat, but who’s looking at the pumps when the dress is so busy?

Dior Beauty Celebrates the 10th Anniversary of J’adore

Coco Rocha doesn’t quite ooze that fierceness that she used to, but she still looks gorgeous wearing a black and red floral print strapless Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2009 dress.

Maybe the reason I’m not crazy about this look is because I’ve seen it so many times before.

Also those Christian Louboutin ankle boots still remind me of a horses head every time I look at them.

Lydia Hearst was the model used to present the Marc Bouwer Spring 2010 collection, and I guess she loved the collection so much that she wore a red sequined mini dress with structured shoulders to this event.

Her dress is paired with silver Christian Louboutin Differa sandals and a black clutch.

If you thought Bally only did shoes and handbags, then you were mistaken as Joy Bryant wore Bally Fall 2009 feather print silk maxi dress with an asymmetrical sleeve to this event.

I love the dress, but those clunky brown boots are just horrific.

Many of you complain about Ginnifer Goodwin and Victoria Beckham never smiling, but you should add Lake Bell to that list too.

Not only is she not smiling here, but she looks quite peeved.

A nice smile would have warmed up this cute look, as I love her jacquard dress with a peplum at the waist.

Tinsley Mortimer looks like a real-life Barbie wearing a gold strapless Dior dress, paired with gold t-bar heels and a Jimmy Choo animal print clutch.

Olivia Palmero has said in the past that she’s a Topshop addict.

Well she doesn’t to disprove that fact by wearing a Topshop studded jacket paired with a metallic dress and blue suede ankle boots.

Like Olivia, Nicky Hilton opted for a very casual look for this event.

Keeping the studded theme going she wore a studded vest, paired with a white tank, black mini skirt and Brian Atwood Lola pumps.
