“The Laurence Olivier Awards” – Rachel Weisz In Narciso Rodriguez

Rachel Weisz was also at the “The Laurence Olivier Awards” last night where she picked up the Best Actress Award.

The British actress looked elegant in a one-shouldered Narciso Rodriguez dress, but I wasn’t crazy about the colour.

Had this been a midnight blue or navy I think I would have been totally in love with it.

Narciso Rodriguez Fall 2010

Narciso Rodriguez’ Fall 2010 gave us all his signatures.

Sleek tailoring, cut-outs, minimal lines and this time was saw more looser silhouettes.

Batman hats were in for Fall 2009. This season we have the bowl-shaped hats which are just as bold.

I loved the ombre looks. The green one was subtle, but the orange ones stood out like a beautiful flame.

We were presented with shearling cropped jackets, silk pencil skirts, asymmetrical dresses, an ombre angora coat and tapered pants.

A lot of the looks had one-sleeve, and the colour palette besides orange was mostly black and grey.

Kelly Rutherford, Tory Burch, Leigh Lezark (yes again) and Lauren Santo Domingo were in the front row.

2010 SAG Awards – Julianna Margulies In Narciso Rodriguez

If It Ain’t Broke Don’t Fix It Award
Like Sofia Vergara, Julianna Margulies opted to stick to the same designer who made her Globes gown – Narciso Rodriguez.

Her midnight blue velvet Narciso Rodriguez halter gown is so incredibly gorgeous.

She gives off a regal air in this gown, which is so befitting for the nominated actress.

Social Events Of The Week

“Broken Embraces” New York Screening

On Penelope Cruz’ last red carpet outing she was head-to-toe in black.

This time she lightens up wearing an ivory Calvin Klein Pre-Fall 2009 look consisting of a full-length coat and 3/4 length sleeved velvet dress.

The colour is gorgeous against her olive skin and I love her glossy tumbling wavy locks.

I love it when Pen’s on top form, and this is one of those enjoyable occasions.

Printemps Christmas Window Display Launch, France

Natalia Vodianova can do pretty dresses, we all know that.

Here she proves she can look stunning wearing a navy blue Givenchy Fall 2009 suit.

The cut is exquisite and I love that she didn’t over accessorize this look.

‘Nine’ Screening, New York

I like Fergie’s Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 ensemble, and I don’t even mind the tights.

I just wish she’d loosen up that severe hairstyle, as it throws me off loving the look.

The Whaleman Foundation Benefit, LA

Sporting new bangs Hayden Panettiere looked stunning wearing an eggshell Tadashi Shoji Spring 2010 dress with an asymmetrical twisted neckline and a twisted detail on the skirt.

This colour shows off her year-round California tan.

I loved her gold trimmed accessories which included a Bally Agrippa-E clutch and Yves Saint Laurent Tribute suede sandals, which complimented her gold cuff.

“Star Trek” DVD/Blu-Ray Release Party, LA

After not being in love with Zoe Saldana last red carpet looks, she totally redeems herself wearing a Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2010 black and nude dress.

I’m loving those subtle animal print heels and that sheer draping neckline.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Nicole Kidman has been getting first dibs on all the L’Wren Scott Spring 2010 pieces, but Penelope got to pick this stunning black dress.

It’s simple, chic, shows of her stunning figure, plus I love the leather detailing on the shoulders.

I’m not sure why, but I’m currently obsessed with her glossy hair.

The Hollywood Reporter Honors Eva Longoria Parker With Philanthropist Of The Year Award, LA

Kate Beckinsale wears her second Andrew GN look this week.

Many of you said you find her red carpet style stale, boring, predictable and samey, but there’s not mermaid hem on this black long sleeved Andrew GN Spring 2010 dress.

Don’t you just love that silver beaded embellishment at waist which make the dress more interesting?

Grey YSL Tribute suede pumps and a black clutch complete the look.

I’m getting seriously worried that the current trend to apply a lot of white eyeshadow is catching on.

It’s very subtle on Eva Longoria, unlike Taraji P. Henson.

Eva was honoured at this event, walked the red carpet wearing a sexy red asymmetrical ruched Badgley Mischka Fall 2009 dress.

Unfortunately the hair and make-up puts me off loving this look.

Leona Lewis’ Album Celebration, LA

Oh Ciara. From the long shot and especially in the close up, all I can focus on are your goodies when I should be loving those delightful ruffled shoulders.

Sheer dress + no bra + flash blubs = exposure.

Celebrity red carpet dressing 101.

As much as I’m loving this new improved attitude from Leona Lewis, I’m not loving her obsession with those corseted belts.

It has worked on a few pieces, but on a Herve Leger bandage dress is just makes no sense at all.

Just don’t get me started on the ankle boots.

Out & About, New York

Rihanna may have worn her Stéphane Rolland Spring 2009 Couture gown on the red carpet at the 2009 Glamour Women of the Year Awards, but inside she did a quick change into this stunning Jasmine di Milo Spring 2010 gown.

The ombre silk tulle gown is divine with it’s sexy thigh-high split and gathered details on the hips.

Many of you didn’t think she could carry off the previous gown, but think she rocked both.

Royal Rajasthan Gala, London

There was a time when I had nothing nice to say about Sigourney Weaver, but she continues to impress.

From her previous Donna Karan gown, to this stunning ruby Naeem Khan Fall 2009 draped satin one- shoulder gown with jeweled trim bodice which I simply adore.

At present she can currently do no wrong.

“A Magical Evening” Gala, New York

I’m still catching my breathe from looking at the stunning Selita Ebanks on this red carpet.

She looks like an angel wearing a white one-shouldered J.Mendel Pre-Fall 2009 gown, which has had its second outing on the red carpet.

BDOTW contender for sure.

Jane Krakowski chose a one shouldered grey embroidered Christian Cota Fall 2009 dress.

I like the dress, especially the embroidered detail, but I’m not sure it quite works on Jane.

She’s quite broad shouldered so this look isn’t particularly flattering.

Montblanc 9th Annual 24 Hr Plays on Broadway After Party, New York

Emmy Rossum is wearing a lot of black lately, but her black jacquard J. Mendel Fall 2009 sleeveless dress which has been modified from the runway is stunning.

She pairs her dress with t-bar heels, I just wish she also wore the runway belt.

“Exposed: 10 Years In Hollywood Book Launch Party”, LA

This isn’t my favourite look on Jessica Alba by any means.

She doesn’t breathe any life into her Narciso Rodriguez Resort 2010 black and white dress which she pairs with Christian Louboutin Lady Page pumps.

MTV’s “It’s On With Alexa Chung”, New York

Rihanna strikes a pose at the MTV Studios after her interview on Alexa Chung’s show, which you can watch by here

I thought it was quite appropriate that Rihanna was seeing Alexa wearing ankle boots, as Alexa is the Queen of ankle boots.

Rihanna paired her boots with an Alexander McQueen asymmetric-stripe sweater dress which we’ve seen on Cheryl Cole.

Avon Foundation Celebrates “Champions Who Change Women’s Lives”

Reese Witherspoon is the current face of Avon, and that gorgeous face looked very stylish wearing a Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2010 strapless dress with a white bodice and a black sheer skirt overlay.

I’m glad the dress is not squishing her twins like it does on the runway model.

I think you know that style-wise I find Lauren Conrad very frustrating, but not on this occasion as she was easily one of the best dressed on this red carpet.

I love that she wore a modern Herve Leger bandage dress whilst sporting vintage marcel waves.

Her look was paired with bright red lips with matching nails which gets me thinking someone has been taking some style tips from Dita von Teese.

Trib Two’s as standard.

Fergie looked pretty fab in her nude feathered Valentino dress.

It’s always a snooze-fest whenever Courteney Cox walks the red carpet, and this occasion is not different.

13th Annual Hollywood Awards Gala Ceremony

Hilary Swank continues to give red carpet master classes, this time wearing a Monique Lhuillier Fall 2009 black gown.

The cut-out details some how make the actress look even more slender and taller, and the embellish details prevent this from being a boring black gown.

Oscar buzz will guarantee you one thing – an endless supply of stunning dresses to wear on the red carpet – and that’s exactly what Carey Mulligan has been wearing lately.

The style-icon-in-the-making wore a Prabal Gurung Spring 2010 black beaded chiffon strapless dress with shirttail hem and silk faille bowtie to cinched in her waist.

She teamed her dress with tortoise-shell heels and a chunky gold bracelet.

I’m loving the quiff.

Zooey Deschanel is probably the only person who I feel dresses up with tights, rather than covers up with tights.

We often see her in various colours of tights, but on this occasion she opted for black to match the black trims on her cute Luella Spring 2010 dress.

Her look was paired with Martin Lewis for Luella bow accented heels and a black Chanel bag.

Like the runway model Zooey wears a black bow in her hair, but she opted to wears hers at the back.

There were a lot of black dresses at this event, but Kate Beckinsale’s Michael Kors Resort 2010 dress was made interesting with the asymmetrical neckline and the draped detail on the skirt.

Long gold earrings and a chunky cuff complete the sophisticated look.

Despite Diane Kruger being one of the few not to wear black at this event, I wasn’t crazy about her look.

She kept her look light and feminine wearing a Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2010 white silk dress with a rise and fall hem, but unfortunately the nude heels really let her down.

I loved how this gown billowed on the runway, and although that drama is lost on the red carpet Diane still tried to make it work.

I also preferred how the dress sits above the knee on the model, the length feels a bit awkward on Diane.

Julianne Moore is not afraid of colour, as she wore a beautiful coral dress with voluminous sleeves.

I adore the colour on her.  She can be so breath-taking at times without much effort.

The actress paired her dress with Chanel ankle strap heels, and a black Bottega Veneta Impero satin clutch.

Michelle Monaghan looked stunning in a black strapless dress with a floral embroidered detail on the bodice.

She glows as brightly as her Martin Katz jewels.

Dare I say this, but I’m bored.

Charlize Theron normally blows me away each time she hits the red carpet, but I can only get excited about her red Louboutin’s with a gold toe cap and Bottega Veneta clutch.

Her The Row ensemble is very meh!!!

AnnaLynne McCord provided the sultry glamour I was expecting from Charlize, by posing seductively in a one-shouldered black gown.

Taraji P. Henson is wearing a really nice Rachel Roy dress, but it somehow feels out of place at this event.

I’m also not loving the hair extensions. She worked the shorter style really well.

What’s most tragic is the make-up. Why does she have a layer of white powder under her eyes?
