“An Education” New York Premiere

Carey Mulligan has become SO interesting to watch on the red carpet lately as she’s fearless.

Many newcomers may have picked something safe for a big premiere, but Carey thought stuff that I’m going to wear this gladiatorial Prada Fall 2009 studded dress and steal the headlines.

And she did.

Only the somewhat safe pieces have been worn from this collection, so I really admire Carey as she really went for it.

Many will mock her and I’m sure many will hate this look, but I applaud the British actress.

You would’ve expected Maggie Gyllenhaal to have stood out at this premiere being the bigger star.

But I guess since she isn’t actually in this movie and was only there to support her husband Peter Sarsgaard last night, she didn’t want to outshine the Carey on her big night.

Maggie opted for a sleek strapless black Prada jumpsuit and a large black clutch.

Very simple, yet very elegant.

White Ribbon Alliance Dinner

I’ve been waiting for what feels like forever for someone to wear something from the Prada Fall 2009 collection, since Eva Mendes wore a look from the collection back in March.

Jessica Alba has fulfilled that wish by wearing a red velvet floral dress, but what the lord gives with one hand he takes away with the other and those thick black opaques kinda dull the excitement.

Nicole Kidman has been M.I.A. on the red carpet for a long while.

She returned in her favourite designer wearing a black fitted L’Wren Scott lacquered tweed dress with red peep-toes.

At this point I’m just grateful that the dress is not white.

Remember that rather crazy phase?

The Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection keeps going strong.

This time Naomi Watts wears a black cropped jacket from said collection with a white shirt and black pants.

Georgina Chapman has been accused by many of you for not shaking things up.

Well this is the 3rd time she has worn something not directly off her runway, which will hopefully please you non-believers.

I think her dress was modified from the purple strapless Marchesa Resort 2010 dress, as it has a very similar shape.

The pops of fuschia pink are cute and sassy.

Stunning as always.

I’ve run out of nice things to say about her.

CEO of PepsiCo, Indra Nooyi hosted the event looking gorgeous wearing a Giambattista Valli Fall 2009 peacock print coat/dress.

Why celebrities haven’t worn anything from this stunning collection still baffles me.

Uber models Naomi Campbell and Iman struck a pose together.

Naomi wore an angelic white Azzedine Alaïa dress and Azzedine Alaia python & patent strappy heels, whilst Iman opted for more colour wearing a mustard pencil dress which shows that she’s still got it.

“The September Issue” New York Premiere

US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour walked the red carpet last night as the host of “The September Issue” New York premiere.

The R.J. Cutler documentary chronicles the making of the fashion bible’s 2007 September edition, which remains its biggest issue to date.

After seeing the Prada Resort 2010 collection, I was intrigued to see which piece – if any – Anna would pick from this collection.

Anna has never been scared of bold prints, so it wasn’t a surprise that she picked this interesting piece which was modified to cover her shoulders.

Beige kitten heels, a dazzling necklace and trademark bob completed the look.

Sienna Miller – the cover star of the September 2007 issue this documentary chronicles – showed off how lengthy her toned legs are wearing a blue sky Thakoon Resort 2010 strapless mini dress.

I love the texture of this dress which is cleverly draped, twisted and gathered to create volume.

A silver Bottega Ventea clutch, large chandelier earrings and gold Jimmy Choo heels complete this look.

J’Adore.

Renee Zellweger’s shortened Carolina Herrera Resort 2010 orange draped brocade dress was the perfect choice to show off her best feature – her legs.

Some of you expressed how you’re a tad bored of the Renee/Herrera collabo, but I really love how each piece is tailor-made or modified to suit Renee’s style.

If it was the same silhouette or same colour I would be bored too, but the two of them give us something new every time.

Sexy strappy heels and her trademark pout complete the look.

I will forever love Carey Mulligan for wearing my favourite dress from the Thakoon Resort 2010 collection.

I adore this colourful dress, which drapes better on the runway.  It’s like opening a packet of Starburst.

Actress Zoe Kazan combined two pieces from the Jason Wu Resort 2010 collection to create her own casual look.

I don’t like the uninspired heavy black heels with this summery look.  The runway heels to the left would have been a better choice.

You may remember Emma Watson wore this same Jason Wu Resort look when traveling between shows whilst promoting “Harry Potter”.

Shortening seems to be the new black, as Hilary Rhoda like Renee, shorten her Rachel Roy Resort 2009 dress.

Her floral dress was pair with Manolo Blahhnik white and black stitched heels.

Designers Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera arrived together.

He wore a beige suit, whilst she looked radiant wearing an orange and white floral skirt from her Resort 2010 collection, with a crisp white shirt which is very much her trademark look.

Designer Tory Burch decided against wearing a piece from her own collection opting for this gorgeous purple Narciso Rodriguez silk dress from the 2009 Pre-Fall collection.

The cap sleeve dress has a wide self-tie belt that wraps around dress, which can create Rodriguez’ signature criss cross detail.

I love the dress and the strappy heels, but I really dislike her pink feathery bag.  What a way to ruin a look.

Designer Cynthia Rowley opted for a vibrant blue shortened dress from her Fall 2009 collection.

She looked stunning wearing her dress with a blue and black embroidered belt, and Elizabeth & James elastic wedge sandals.

Georgina Chapman opted for a silver long sleeved tunic dress with sprinkles of gold embellishments, which shimmered as she walked the red carpet.

Her dress had a matching silver roped tied the waist.  Her look was complete with grey Christian Louboutin kitten heels and a matching clutch.

Vera Wang opted for a simple grey tank which she punched up with a trademark bejeweled necklace.

I particularly love her Resort 2010 asymmetrical layered skirt, which she wore with Prada Spring 2009 snake-skin heels.

Alexa Chung dress has the floaty ethereal feel of the Calvin Klein Resort 2010 collection, which I’ll guess is actually a vintage dress.

It appears Alexa still hasn’t washed her hair from the last time she stepped onto the red carpet for the “Inglourious Basterds” New York Screening earlier this week.

TRESemme and some lukewarm water. Don’t be afraid to introduce them to your hair Miss Chung.

Bee Shaffer’s lilac belted dress is divine, both in colour and style.

It shows off her legs and accentuates her curvy figure.

Designer Donna Karan and singer Cassie arrived wearing similar plunging black jumpsuits.

Donna opted for gladiator flats with her look, whilst Cassie wore platform boots.

“The September Issue” hits theaters in New York on August 28, and select cities on September 11.

Sienna Miller’s Obsession – Prada Saffiano & Tessuto Tote

Sienna Miller is currently in New York as she’s rehearsing for her Broadway play “After Miss Julie”.

Her morning starts the same everyday:

– rose tinted glasses
– starbucks
– comfortable flats
– cute outfit
– Prada Saffiano & Tessuto Tote

Sienna has been rehearsing for 3 days, but she can’t bare to be parted from her Prada Saffiano & Tessuto Tote.

The tote has a classic Dr. Watson feel about it.

It’s the kind of bag you carry and it instantly makes you appear smarter, like glasses.

Yesterday Flora said that she admires both Diane Kruger’s and Rachel Bilson’s style off the red carpet. I would second that and also add Sienna.

We’ve 3 great looks here from a simple grey tank and jeans, to a nautical stripe tank with a Twenty8Twelve skirt with Rupert Sanderson brogues, and a sweet floral Topshop dress with black ballet flats.

Effortless, chic and cute.

The deep burgundy saffiano leather tote with nylon insets, has double briefcase handles with square rings and a detachable shoulder strap with gold hardware thorough-out.

You can purchase this tote from Saks.com for $1,550 or Prada boutiques worldwide.

Myer Spring/Summer 2009/10 Collection Launch

The X Factor is due to start on Saturday in the UK, and I can barely contain my excitement.

We’ll be watching what has been taped weeks in advance, so this gives the judges some time out before the drama of the live shows in the Autumn.

X Factor judge Dannii Minogue is back at home in Australia, and she was sitting front row at this show wearing strapless corseted Victoria Beckham Fall 2009 dress with an organza bodice overlay and sequin hip panel.

Danni wore her dress with black clutch and Christian Louboutin pigalle heels.

The dress looks good on Dannii, but it would’ve been better had she shortened it.

No matter what we say about Victoria’s style, it seems that celebs just can’t get enough of VB threads that the moment.

Victoria Beckham and Selita Ebanks have both already worn this dress.

Former Miss Universe, Jennifer Hawkins is currently the very pretty face of “Myer”.

She arrived on the red carpet wearing a plunging black dress, with a bow detail on the waist and crystal details on the shoulders.  Those details remind me of the Givenchy Spring 2009 collection.

Black peep-toes complete the look.

Lara Bingle was ‘glowing’ in a pale pink long sleeve Prada dress which has a the back cut-out.

Her hair was slight wild and messy and her make-up kept light.

YSL white strappy sandals complete the look.

02.06.09 Premiere

The Proposal LA Premiere

After her ‘nice dress, shame about the tights’ MTV Movie Awards red carpet appearance, Sandra redeemed last night at this premiere.

Her legs were FULLY revealed to show no blemishes, no marks, no defects, and not ill effects of a botched spray tan, just slender toned tanned legs, that begs the question Why did you wear tights?

The actress wore an off-the-shoulder black satin Alexander McQueen asymmetrical dress, with a draped silhouette, and a contrast lining. She wore it with a black spaghetti strap top underneath.

I love the multiple chunky necklaces she wore with the dress, and the two tone Bally heels.

What a fab, glamorous look, and a magnificent turn around.

Malin Akerman wore a sexy blue silk Prada dress with Martin Katz jewels, but lets focus on the important thing here…the Prada heels.

Let’s drool for a moment………

And let’s ask the question why Malin? With all due respect to her.

Why not Cameron in a hot mini on Sunday night? Yes I’m still trying to get over that. It’s not going to be easy.
