Best Dressed Of The Week – Devon Aoki In Alice + Olivia & Emma Stone In Martin Grant

Devon Aoki was your best dressed this week.

The model looked stunning wearing a custom Alice + Olivia gown to the CFDA Fashion Awards. The beautiful colour and dramatic peplum of her red-and-black gown with a train was your favourite by a long margin.

Emma Stone was my favourite this week.

The Spiderman actress looked oh so very chic wearing a Martin Grant ensemble to the MTV Movie Awards.

Her black-and-ivory dress, which also had a dramatic peplum, was styled with complementary pumps a beautiful coral lip colour.

I’m hoping for more of this during her promo tour.

Emma Stone In Martin Grant – 2012 MTV Movie Awards

Emma Stone was honoured at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, held in Universal City last night, with the first annual ‘Trailblazer Award’.

The actress, who is back to blonde for her upcoming ‘The Amazing Spiderman’ promo tour, wore an edgy black-and-ivory Martin Grant Fall 2012 frock.

Slightly modifying the lookbook version, Emma chose to tailor the architectural black bodice, while also toning down the voluminous white bubble skirt, creating a more streamlined look overall.

Two-tone black-and-ivory Brian Atwood ‘Grace’ pumps match the dress.

A slightly tousled updo and vibrant rose-pink lips complete the look, and add a much-needed dose of colour.

Martin Grant Spring 2011

Martin Grant’s Spring 2011 collection had a retro feel to it.

The designer presented perfectly cut cocktail dresses and red carpet gowns.

We also saw strapless jumpsuits, trench coats worn as dresses, strapless rompers and tailored suits.

Oversized pockets created an interesting silhouette by exaggerating the hips.

Models walked the runway with Louboutin heels and ankle boots as they smoldered with their red hot lips.

Favourites: Tan leather trench coat and fuchsia pink one shoulder gown

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Jessica Alba, Sophia Bush, Sarah Jessica Parker, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kyra Sedgwick

“Sherlock Holmes” Madrid Photocall

Rachel McAdams was finally allowed to shine on her own.

There was no Blake Lively wearing a show stopping Dolce & Gabbana barely-there dress.

No Diane Kruger dazzling in a Karl Lagerfeld futuristic dress.

It was just Rachel, giving us sophisticated glamour wearing a Vionnet Resort 2010 nude dress.

I love way one side of the draped ruched dress falls gently off her shoulder, and even though those Casadei heels look heavy I’m glad she didn’t opt for a nude pair.

There’s a bit of a Noah’s Ark effect about Vionnet, with their clothes being worn in two’s.

Back in October both Carey Mulligan and Hilary Swank wore Vionnet on the same night.

Last night both Marion Cotillard and Rachel wore Vionnet looks.

Robert Downey Jr and his wife producer Susan Downey looked to be having fun walking the red carpet together.

She looked gorgeous wearing a strapless Martin Grant Fall 2009 grey ombre dress, with a matching pair of grey peep-toes.

I’m so happy to see a look from this collection on the red carpet again. I wish more pieces had been worn.

Social Events Of The Week

33rd Annual Cairo International Film Festival (CIFF), Egypt

It’s been a while since we last saw Salma Hayek looking this fantastic.

The actress looked stunning at this event were she received an honorary award wearing a printed Balenciaga Fall 2009 gown.

I had hoped to see more from this collection on the red carpet, but Salma delights in her stunning gown version, which I prefer to the runway.

Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ Inaugural Governors Awards, LA

Ever since Cannes Film Festival Abbie Cornish just gets better and better for me on the red carpet.

I adore her in this Christian Dior lilac belted gown.

Her hair and make-up are gorgeous, her Neil Lane jewels are subtly beautiful and that clutch is divine.

Holt Renfrew Celebrates New Calgary Store, Canada

After two gowns Kristen Bell gives us a fresh sparkling Jenni Kayne Spring 2010 mini to get us in the to party mood for this weekend.

As always the blonde actress is flawless.

“The Blind Side” New Orleans Benefit Premiere

Sandra Bullock looked stunning wearing a purple striped Alberta Ferretti Spring 2010 gown.

I just wish she had smiled to help me love this look even more.

Fabolous’ Birthday Party, New York

Amber Rose usually over does it by wearing loud colours, or tacky tight ensembles but I’m totally in love with this Martin Grant Fall 2009 sculptured bustier.

Black velvet pants, YSL suede black heels and sunglasses complete her look.

2010 Pirelli Calendar Cocktail Reception, London

Daisy Lowe opted for a Jasmine di Milo Fall 2008 jumpsuit which is split to the thigh.

I love this look as it’s seductive without being too revealing.

The tights even work in her favour, as she looks like she’s wearing a full bodysuit.

NAC’s Medal of Honor for Film Award Presentation, New York

I’m not feeling this Alexander McQueen Resort 2010 look on Christina Ricci at all, and it has nothing to do with the tights.

The asymmetrical one-sleeved mini has a mish mash of colours I really don’t like, plus I don’t think the dress is particularly flattering on her.

Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Birthday Celebration, New York

I’ve loved this Alexander Wang corseted one-shoulder dress ever since I laid eyes on it.

Kim Kardashian does look good in this dress.

I love way the dress gracefully drapes her shoulder, but she’s a little bit too busty for the dress.

2009 MTVU Woodie Awards, New York

I’m also surprised we haven’t seem much of the Balenciaga Resort 2010 collection on the red carpet.

Jessica Stam opted to wear this orange belted mini with tight and a small patterned bag.

“The Princess And The Frog”, LA Premiere

It’s been forever since we last saw Anika Noni Rose on the red carpet, then she reappears at this premiere wearing the Thread Social asymmetrical dress I had added to my ‘favourites’ a few weeks ago.

I love the back of the dress with the unexpected double strappy detail.

Such a cute look to match that gorgeous smile.

“Me And Orson Welles” UK Premiere

Claire Danes’ Stella McCartney gown is very classic and simple with ruffle details.

Large silver earrings provides the sparkle.
