Padma Lakshmi In Naeem Khan – 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards

Padma Lakshmi attended the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards, held at the Alice Tully Hall in New York City last night.

The TV host was seated directly opposite me during the Naeem Khan Fall 2012 presentation, so I’m not surprised she snapped up this stunning gown.

I also had my eye on this navy-and-black abstract-beaded georgette trumpet gown with a jet fringe beaded bodice, but it was on my wish list for Emily Blunt.

Padma more than does justice to this gown, so the sighting of it on the red carpet fills me with joy.

A braided updo and barely-there makeup provided the finishing touches.

Sonam Kapoor In Naeem Khan – Chopard And L’Oreal Party

Sonam Kapoor attended the Chopard and L’Oreal Party during the 2012 Cannes Film Festival at the Palais des Festivals yesterday evening.

The Indian actress wore a Naeem Khan Fall 2012 gown.

Her one-shoulder black gown with a white dotted print throughout is beautiful, but somehow overwhelmed Sonam.

I think it’s the shoulder detail that is making me feel this way. She should’ve placed it behind her or patted it down.

Chopard ruby jewels to match her velvet clutch completed her look.

Hayden Panettiere In Naeem Khan – WildAid Charity Gala

Hayden Panettiere attended the WildAid Charity Gala in San Francisco, California, on Saturday.

It’s not often I put the words ‘wow’ and Hayden Panettiere in the same sentence, but she is wearing a stunning Naeem Khan gown and the words ‘wow’ and Naeem Khan often go together.

The actress was radiant wearing a pink matte jersey crystal-beaded gown with a blouson racer bodice from the designer’s Pre-Fall 2012 collection.

I’m a sucker for embellishments – hence my love for Naeem Khan – but this pretty pink colour is what’s working best for her here.

With her cropped blonde hair styled into a half-up, half-down do, the actress completed her look with a glossy lip colour and a multi-coloured tube clutch.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Kate Hudson In Jenny Packham & Leslie Mann In Naeem Khan

Kate Hudson was crowned your best dressed this week.

She was a vision on the red carpet at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner shimmering in a purple-sequin Jenny Packham gown which she accessorized with an Edie Parker box clutch.

I had no problems picking a winner this week.

Leslie Mann, one of the unsung red-carpet heroines, blew me away in her stunning floral Naeem Khan floral one-shoulder gown.

Her hot-pink touches sealed the deal for me.

Naeem Khan Private Dinner Party

Celebrities gathered at the Chateau Marmont last night for a private dinner party to celebrate the designer favoured by Michelle Obama and Florence Welch, Naeem Khan.

Jordana Brewster: The ‘Fast and the Furious’ actress selected a sleeveless abstract-print dress with a pleated skirt from the Resort 2012 collection in muted colours of taupe and turquoise. I love the bejewelled belt which complements the floral beading on the dress. Her look was accessorized with purple accessories which included Jerome C. Rousseau ‘Aizza’ aubergine satin pumps and a Lauren Merkin ‘Eve’clutch.

Teresa Palmer: The Australian actress selected a more colourful look from the designer’s Spring 2011 collection. Her yellow short-sleeve dress with multi-coloured floral sequin embroidery was teamed with an oversized red Ela ‘MILCK’ (Money / ID / Lipstick / Cell / Keys) clutch and gunmetal-grey Sergio Rossi pumps which weigh down the look.

Ahna O’Reilly: Opting for a top-knot hairstyle, the ‘The Help’ actress wore a cute Pre-Fall 2012 sleeveless dress. The white dress with gold circle appliqué and a full skirt was teamed with a taupe Ela ‘MILCK’ clutch with matching pumps with a jewelled detail.

Ellie Kemper: This was my favourite look. ‘The Office’ actress wore a beadwork on her drop-waist dress from the Fall 2012 collection. The green-and-sand felt appliqué dress works perfectly with her milky complexion. I wish the Ela ‘MILCK’ clutch was smaller, but I do love her gunmetal-grey open-toe ankle-strap heels.

Michelle Obama In Naeem Khan – 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Michelle Obama was seated next to Jimmy Kimmel who served as the host of the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, held at the Washington Hotel on Saturday evening.

Unfortunately we only get a glimpse of the top half of Michelle’s Naeem Khan Fall 2011 ballgown, but it’s still enough to make me swoon.

The belle of the ball looked sensational, radiant, stunning….I could go on and on.

Naeem Khan is becoming the First Lady’s go-to designer. She has a love for all things colourful, so no surprises that she selected this strapless paisley organza ballgown.

Carla Amorim ‘Aurora’ rose gold with cronaline and orange sapphires earrings, luscious locks and a nude lip colour completed her look.

Leslie Mann In Naeem Khan – 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Leslie Mann was one of my favourites on the night of the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, held at the Washington Hilton on Saturday.

She was glowing wearing a Naeem Khan gown.

I love the floral embroidery on her navy one-shoulder gown. It’s so eye-catching and festive.

Leslie kept the styling to a minimum, adding silver drop earrings and a cocktail ring.

I love that Leslie opted for fuschia pink heels, which matched her lip colour and satin clutch, despite them being barely visible.

A centre-parted side-swept bun and a pink lip colour completed her look which was my favourite of the night.
