2010 Tribeca Film Festival Party – Jessica Alba In Proenza Schouler

Jessica Alba looked gorgeous on the red carpet at the “2010 Tribeca Film Festival Party” held in LA last night.

She wore a Proenza Schouler reptile print mini dress with a mix of fun, colourful flirtatiousness which I simply adore.

I also loved the cowl back and her Proenza Schouler heels which left me breathless.

Well worth blowing a months rent me thinks.

Gold accessories from Eddie Borgo completed the look.

If you look at the close up below, you can see that Jessica even matched her eye make-up to the colours on her dress.

I would require more attitude and a less mumsy hair do to go with this type of look, but it still works for me.

BDOTW contender?

Front Row @ Proenza Schouler Fall 2010

It looks like Chloe Sevigny, Selma Blair, Leigh Lezark and Rachel Zoe all the got the “wear black, white or grey” memo to the Proenza Schouler Fall 2010 presentation during New York Fashion Week.

Chloe opted for an oversized Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2010 shirt dress, worn with a Proenza Schouler coat, shoes and PS1 bag.

Selma opted to wear her Pre-Fall 2010 dress without the sleeveless shirt, which is a much better look.

Leigh Lezark’s wore an animal print Spring 2010 dress which we’ve seen on Kate Bosworth.

“How to Make it in America” New York Screening – Chloe Sevigny In Proenza Schouler

I’m all about the glamour on the red carpet as you know, but I can fully appreciate Chloe Sevigny’s bed hair and “I just threw this on” style.

Last night at the “How to Make it in America” New York screening her look was still in tune with her usual style, but nice and neat.

With touch of pink to her lips and thick black tights the blonde actress wore a Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2010 dress with embroidered details which gave it plenty of texture.

I just love the neckline on this dress which she paired with Proenza Schouler wedged booties, a wrap belt, and a Proenza Schouler croc PS1 clutch.

I really love this laid back look.

Runway To “Valentine’s Day” LA Premiere – Jessica Alba In Proenza Schouler

I guess someone had to do ‘edgy’ thing on the red carpet at the “Valentine’s Day” LA premiere, and that fell to Jessica Alba.

Unfortunately – yet again – her hair lets her down.

In an attempt to make it look less mumsy, she gave it the wet look treatment which looks like she ran out of time and opted to towel dry her hair.

The sad thing is I really love her Proenza Schouler sequined and feathered mini dress from the Spring 2010.

It’s so interesting with it’s green feathers, intricate bead work plus the chain and blue rhinestone embellishments.

The dress which comes with a black tank top also has an added feather like detail on the shoulder.

From the neck down this is a winning look. I also love her Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 heels which were a perfect choice with this dress.

Social Events Of The Week

Gare Du Nord Train Station, Paris

I love it when Victoria Beckham is in Europe, as we get to see so much of her.

The fashion designer was spotted hopping off the Eurostar at Gare Du Nord station in Paris earlier today.

The woman famed for wearing sunglasses this time hid behind her Loewe Pre-Fall 2009 hat, whilst wearing a black leather trench coat, Trib Two’s and Loewe Paloma 29 bag which we’ve seen her carrying before.

Only VB would dare sport this look.

“The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus” New York Premiere

Lily Cole certainly has the legs to pull off this striped Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 Couture short suit.

I just don’t get the matching thigh-high boots.

Women In Film & Television 29th Annual Muse Awards, New York

America Ferrera looked stunning wearing a Proenza Schouler black wool cut-out dress.

I love everything about this look from the cut of the dress, to her beehive hairstyle and her metallic peep-toes.

She may tend to wear a lot of black, but she always looks so well put together.

“It’s Complicated” New York Premiere

Lake Bell always looks so sexy, even when she’s not trying.

The actress smolders wearing a Narciso Rodriguez royal blue crepe dress with the trademark criss cross straps.

Her look is paired with Narciso Rodriguez black suede strap sandals, and bubblegum pink lips.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Rachel Weisz also opted for a pop of blue wearing this belted dress with flutter sleeves.

I love the look, but the peek-a-boo bra distracts me from loving this look.

IFP’s 19th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards

I always think of Proenza Schouler as an edgy label, and Natalie Portman as a sweet delicate flower so the two together shouldn’t work, but she looked stunning in this ombre sequined Spring 2010 Proenza Schouler tank dress.

I said in an earlier post that ’tis the season to wear sequins and sparkle which Natalie certainly does here.

Her hair was pulled back as she wore black peep-toes and carrying a cute Judith Leiber Discoball sphere clutch to complete her look.

Brooke Shields wore a Malandrino Fall 2009 off-the-shoulder ivory dress with a bird embroidery detail going down one side, plus a tulle overlay.

I love the dress on the runway, but it looks really loose on Brooke and as a result the dress appears to be creased even though I’m sure it isn’t.

The Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection has by far been the most popular collection worn by celebrities this year.

It was only a matter of time before someone ruined the good feeling.

I expected it to be Heidi Montag, but American comic Kristen Wiig opted for the shorter version as worn by Rachel McAdams.

The problem isn’t the dress, the problem are the red tights and the way it makes me think that Kristen is channeling her inner elf.

As cute as Rosie Perez’ dress is, the first person that came to mind when I saw this dress was Taylor Swift because she has worn a very similar dress recently.

Plus Rosie’s dress feels more suited to someone of Taylor age group.

MOCA 30th Anniversary Gala

This event has got to be one of the Best Dressed events I’ve ever seen, as everyone made a magnificent effort.

I’ve never been one to go gaga over Chloe Sevigny, but I absolutely LOVE her in this Miu Miu Spring 2010 dress.

It’s something only the likes of Chloe and Zooey Deschanel could pull off without looking like a grown woman dressing childishly.

Her bejewelled turtle neck dress is so playful and dainty, plus I love her neutral accessories which complement her dress well.

*Sighs*

Kate Beckinsale blew me away at this event.

I love the way her midnight green asymmetrical Andrew GN Spring 2010 gown appears to snake around her toned body.

The draping is magnificent, the embellished belt and shoulder detail adds texture and the look is pulled together with an elegant updo.

This is one of my favourite looks from Kate, who completed the look with a black Jenny Packham Baguette clutch.

Christina Ricci wasn’t brave enough to wear the runway version of this Prada Spring 2010 cloque baby doll dress, but she settled on a forest green modified version which she accented with a silver waist band.

Christina isn’t shy at taking risks, but baring her panties at this event wouldn’t have been quite appropriate.

Is it me or does Christina change her hair colour every time she hits the red carpet?

Jessica Alba’s also opted for a Prada Spring 2010 cloque halter dress.

Looking at the closet match to the runway, I would have preferred her to have worn the runway look as it’s far more interesting.

Red satin Prada heels and a red velvet Prada Velluto Sere clutch from the Fall 2009 collection complete this rather tame look.

It looks like what we saw on the Prada and Miu Miu Spring 2010 runway’s may not be exactly what we will see in the boutique’s.

Eva Mendes’ Miu Miu Spring 2010 black and beige dress, takes the jewel embroidered detail from the runway look to perfect her sexy sheath dress.

I adore her look, especially the hair accessory which adds a bit of pizazz to her classy updo.

The edgier runway version wouldn’t have quite worked for her.

Normally I can match a dress to a celebrity the moment I see it on the runway, which also helps me memorize runway looks.

This Marchesa Spring 2010 embroidered black tulle gown with draped sleeves looks like it was made for Shirley Manson, despite that fact that I would never have consider her for this stunning gown.

The singer gives the gown a romantic Gothic vibe I don’t believe Georgina Chapman was going for, but Shirley really works this look.

Daisy Fuentes saw the magic which Gustavo Cadile created for Catherine Zeta-Jones last week, and created it for herself wearing one of his luscious gowns.

I love the amethyst colour of her Spring 2009 halter chiffon gown, which is slightly modified from the runway as hers has jeweled straps.

This would’ve been the reason she pulled back her hair, so we could see that stunning detail.

Last week Lady GaGa and Carine Roitfeld opted for risque looks from Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2010 collection, but Gwen Stefani opted for something less revealing.

The singer walked the red carpet with her husband wearing a white bustier with a black lace trim, paired with tapered pants from the same collection.

Sexy strappy sandals completed her look.

I keep looking at Zoe Saldana’s strapless Marchesa Spring 2010 tulle column gown with sequin detail and keep thinking that something is missing.

I think a waist band, either contrasting or the same colour of the gown would have given her more of a defined waist.

The actress carried a black Jenny Packham Lipstick clutch to complete her look.

I’m so thankful Carine Roitfeld removed all those OTT silver embellishments from her Balmain Spring 2009 as they were overkill.

The dress is much more appealing without all that bling, and I’m a girl who love a bit of bling.

Christian Louboutin Supra Fifre 120 thigh-high boots complete this effortless look.

Unlike most of the others on this red carpet, Kate Bosworth doesn’t really rock my world.

Her animal print Proenza Schouler Spring 2010 dress is nice enough, but she could’ve blown us away with much more interesting pieces from this collection.

I will always love how Rose McGowan always gives us va-va-voom.

Jessica Rabbit eat your heart own.

Rose’s red Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2009 gown is so sensual and divine.

Of course she adds a red lip to her look.

My only criticism is that she would have looked a hell of a lot better with her hair pulled back.

Fashionista Liz Goldwyn always likes to wear the unexpected.

Her fruity watermelon Sonia Rykiel Spring 2010 jumpsuit was paired with a dazzling pair of heels from the same collection.

Miuccia Prada makes her self designed Prada Spring 2010 dress more wearable, by adding a shirt dress under her chandelier-styled crystal embroidered dress.

Carey Mulligan was also wearing Prada, like so many others.

The Oscar hopeful donned a heavily embroidered Prada Spring 2010 dress paired with shoes with a clear heel from the same collection.

She just keeps getting it right. I predict hope she blows us away this coming Awards season.

One person who never lets me down on the red carpet is Marisa Tomei.

I’m just loving this burst of colour.

The actress wore a 1950s Jean Desses Haute Couture bubble-gum pink cocktail dress from Decades Inc.

Boucheron jewels and a Leiber purse complete this outstanding look.

This is one I will come back to drool over again and again.

Rachel Zoe opted for a one-shouldered Pucci gown

Ciara might have been wearing those fierce Christian Louboutin studded pigalle’s but the rest of her look is really disappointing.

When so many stepped outside the box, or wowed us with drama and colour Ciara’s look is very blah and uninspired.

Mr & Mrs Snoozeville were there also.

She was wearing Armani Prive.

Runway To “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” London Fan Event – Kristen Stewart In Proenza Schouler

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner attended “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” fan event at the Battersea Evolution in London this evening.

Kristen gave us the colour we were hoping praying for wearing a multi-coloured Proenza Schouler Spring 2010 ensemble.

I love the colour…can I just say that again I LOVE the colour.

The tie-dye top has a kind of reptile print feel to it, whilst the mini skirt is soft and feminine.

It’s the perfect mix of edgy and feminine to suit the actress who less comfortable in girly clothes.

I would like to say I love this look head-to-toe, but as usual I got a THUD at the feet.

The runway shoes would have been so cute don’t you think?

Favourite look so far and we have a long way to go.
