MOMA Film Benefit: A Tribute To Tim Burton

Veronica Webb looked spectacular wearing a dusky pink Rachel Roy Spring 2010 long sleeved dress with an asymmetrical hemline.

Long necklaces, a pink studded clutch and grey Manolo Blahnik heels designed by Rachel Roy completed her look.

Rachel Roy was also there to show how fabulous she can look on the red carpet.

She also wore her Manolo Blahnik heels with an aqua wrap dress from her Spring 2010 collection.

A black clutch and a stunning gold necklace completed her look.

Miuccia Prada’s biggest fan Anna Wintour stepped out wearing the same red velvet Prada Fall 2009 dress we’ve seen on Jessica Alba.

Michelle Harper struck a serious pose wearing a Zac Posen Fall 2009 dress, which she strangely paired with Trib Two’s.

I’m not liking the length of her dress, but then Lily is freakishly tall.

Ashley Greene continues to give us fabulousity by wearing a gorgeous black D&G ensemble which includes a sheer tank and black ruched skirt with embroidery detail.

She’s having a fabulous week.

I know a lot of you love Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, but at times like this I wonder what all the fuss is about.

The only thing worth drooling over are Ashley’s canary yellow Manolo Blahnik Hangisi pumps.

Rose Byrne opted for a sheer dress which had a sequin skirt and a criss cross sequin detail on the bodice.

“Where The Wild Things Are” New York Premiere

Blake Lively was obviously saving a stunning red carpet look for her own premiere.

The beautiful Gossip Girl actress wowed on the red carpet last night wearing a mini Marchesa Spring 2010 dress.

The strapless nude corseted cocktail dress has a black feathered skirt – which appears to be a bit shorter than the runway look – and an embroidered floral bodice.

It’s safe to say she owned this look. It’s like Georgina Chapman made it especially for her.

I would’ve preferred a peep-toe, but her nude pumps work perfectly with her dress.

After her Emmy’s plait disaster, Blake opted for loose waves and light nude make-up for her finished touches.

Blake has said on many occasions that she doesn’t use a stylist.

She picks looks she likes from Style.com and contacts the designers directly.

Like hating her good looks and long legs wasn’t enough, we have to envy her for making her Style.com lookbook come to life.

BDOTW contender for sure.

Keisha Whitaker wore a tangerine Rachel Roy Resort 2010 embellished dress,which I didn’t realise had a zipper detail going up the side until now.

Forest and Keisha did a vintage Posh & Becks move by colour co-ordinating their looks, as his sneakers matched her dress.

So cute.

Stylist June Ambrose walked the red carpet wearing a silver Alexander McQueen metallic brushstroke dress which had a cowl-neck dress, a small peplum on the hips and padded shoulders.

Black pumps an a silver clutch complete the look.

Rachel Roy Spring 2010

Rachel Roy’s Spring 2010 collection was inspired by the ‘40s screen sirens, ‘70s chic, and the ‘90s power suit.

The designers presentation statement was “elegant, strong and polished”.

Check, check and triple check. Mission very much accomplished.

The collection was full of sophisticated wearable pieces for every type of woman.

Roy’s focused on strong tailoring and draping. The collection was feminine, yet supremely powerful.

There were pants suits, skirt suits, blouses, fitted dresses, cropped jackets, tulip skirts and a mustard all-in-one.

The colour palette was very interesting. First up were a selection of soft neutral ivory and grey pieces, then there was an amazing burst of vibrant colours from mustard to cobalt blue to violet.

Every garment had a sleek fluidity about it due to the draping.

It all felt very effortless and seeing a very relaxed Rachel at the show this only confirmed that fact.

All the models in the show wore Rachel Roy for Manolo Blahnik heels, a collaboration that has been going for some time now. The heels were thonged sandals decorated with chains or studs, or pumps. All keeping in the strong powerful feminine mode.

Stunning collection. I was going gaga over the colourful pieces.

You can view the whole collection at Style.com.

36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards

Tyra Banks toned down from last years event where she was easily one of the worst dress, to one of the Best Dressed of this event – which wasn’t that much of a challenge.

The TV presenter arrived on the red carpet wearing a coral one-shoulder Rachel Roy Resort 2010 dress, with beige Manolo Blahnik heels and a Sang A nude clutch.

I’m loving the natural look she’s giving us these days, it’s so refreshing and it totally suits her.

She was able strike the right balance of elegance & sophistication.

Ashley Jones wore a flowing backless Matthew Williamson for H&M Summer 2009 floral gown.

Some of you may have this dress in your closets if you were lucky enough to buy this gown before it sold out.

I love the tiered ruffled skirt and the neutral accessories she paired with her gown.

Portia de Rossi’s navy off-the-shoulder Monique Lhullier Resort 2010 gown is absolutely stunning in its simplicity.

My only disappointment is that opted for thong sandals to complete her Grecian look.

She’s married to Ellen DeGeneres not Tom Cruise, surely Ellen wouldn’t object to her wearing heels.

I much prefer Heather Tom’s choice of this navy Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2009 fringed dress, as I feel the burnt orange colour wouldn’t have been flattering to her colouring.

The dress is exquisite which she pairs with Christian Dior heels.

Lara Spencer wore a black and white asymmetrical ruffled gown accented with a red belt.

Her gown was a bold choice and will no doubt have you on the fence, but I was crushing on her Valentino Couture red patent bow peep-toes which was on my favourites list last week.

Lori Loughlin elegantly posed on the red carpet wearing a peachy satin asymmetrical Enzoani gown with embellished details on the shoulder and hip.

Gold tone accessories including Loree Rodkin jewels, Renee Caovilla heels, and Bottega Venetta purse completed her look.

Jennie Garth channeled old Hollywood with her wavy ‘do and vibrant orange Issa gown accented with a sparkling brooch.

She sparkled with silver accessories.

Kirsten Storms sported a wavy ‘do as she walked the red carpet wearing a Tadashi Shoji navy silk chiffon one shoulder gown with white silk organza rosette strap.

Her look was paired with a navy Kotur clutch.

Rachael Ray was one of the winners of the night.

She walked the red carpet wearing a plum draped halter dress with a gold coil neckline.  She was one of the few to opt out of wearing a gown.

Susan Lucci is very much the Queen of daytime soaps.

The Queen shone brightly as she sparkled in a coral embellished halter neck Zuhair Murad gown.

Gina Tognoni looked sensational in this raspberry bow tied gown with a ruffled cascading down the front of her gown.

Like the dress, but I’m not crazy the hair.

Marcy Rylan opted for the mothers-to-be favourite red carpet Peas In A Pod gown.

This rose gown with a rosette detail on the shoulder, was also worn by Kimora Lee Simmons.

Kristen Alfonso attracted me with her stunning electric blue one-shouldered gown.

The embellished neckline is also exquisite.

Nadia Bjorlin was oozing sexy glamour wearing a backless gown, with a gold embellished detail draping from her neck and down her back.

Taylor Spreitler’s fuschia pink one-shouldered gown was one of my favourites.

It’s’ simple, colourful and she didn’t over accessorize her look.

Michelle Stafford strapless floral black and white gown is beautiful.

I love any dress that give a woman this stunning Jessica Rabbit/mermaid silhouette.

Stacy Haiduk was the joker of the night as she carried a cat purse on the red carpet.

Best Dressed Of Week – Sienna Miller In Thakoon & Michelle Monaghan In Rachel Roy

Sienna Miller was your Best Dressed this week wearing a strapless icy-blue Thakoon mini dress with gold Jimmy Choo heels, after fighting off Ashlee Simpson and beating her by only 1%.

Michelle Monaghan was by far my favourite this week.

I loved her body-sculpting Rachel Roy long sleeved navy dress with bold shoulders, paired with Manolo Blahnik heels.

It’s not easy to wear such a dress, but she oozed confidence and sexy sophistication.

“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.

“Inglourious Basterds” New York Screening

Despite being the human equivalent to a magpie and being instantly attracted to anything the sparkles, I’m not in love with Diane Kruger’s embellished Miu Miu mini dress as I don’t think it flatters her.

I feel like tugging the skirt down as it sits too high for my liking.

She completed her vixen look with bright red lips and black strappy heels.

Diane’s co-star Mélanie Laurent faired much better wearing a Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2009 Couture black ensemble.

The look consisted of a black pencil skirt, patent waist belt and a sheer halter top, which she lined from the runway version.

Black peep-toes and a black Christian Louboutin clutch completed the look.

Love the look, but I’m not at all crazy about her hair.

Michelle Monaghan looked outstanding wearing a navy blue Rachel Roy Resort 2010 dress with sculptural peaked shoulders.

The bold shoulder is not an easy look to pull off, but Michelle does with ease.

Manolo Blahnik white strappy sandals and a silver cuff complete the look.

Rachel Roy modified Spring 2009 strapless dress to become a spaghetti strapped taupe dress with a less revealing metallic neckline.

Her look is made more interesting with a chunky silver necklace from Michael Kors Fall 2009 collection.

I like designers like Rachel, Donatella Versace and recently Georgina Chapman who modify their own designs to make them more individual.  Take notes Mrs B.

I LOVE Agyness Deyn here.

For once the British model looks glamorous even though she’s wearing a Rocky Horror Show t-shirt.

There’s something about the neatness of her look that I’m drawn too. The sleek bob, the pencil skirt, the red Lulu Guinness lips clutch, her gold strappy Méchante of London’s ‘Elektra’ Rose python heels and the cleanliness of it all.

Not a hint of grunge in sight.

Alexa Chung’s style is not to my liking, but I do appreciate her shirt with a studded collar, plus her H&M skirt, but I can’t bare the greasy hair.

I don’t understand how greasy hair became so trendy.

Actress Julia Stiles looked smart and chic wearing a white satin dress, with an ivory criss cross detail that goes across her back.

She paired her dress with gold gladiator sandals and a white clutch.

Olivia Palermo bucked the short and sassy trend at this event and opted for a ruffled maxi Kate Moss for Topshop dress.

Although she does look elegant and she has added a pony tail to her trademark hairstyle, I can’t help feel a bit bored by her look.

The edgy New Yorker appears to have soften her look.

Melissa George made a huge statement wearing a bold red dress to this screening.

The star was very sophisticated in scarlet as she added black accessories including a studded peep-toes.

Eva Amurri where is your bra?

With twins like those they need support.

Emmanuelle Chriqui at least wore a bra, even though I can see it under her white Kain Label Pocket Tee.

Her electric blue clutch punches up her laid-back look.

Socialite Fabiola Beracasa channels her inner Victoria Beckham wearing a ridiculous headband whilst ruining her gorgeous plum Alexander Wang one-sleeve jersey dress.

With her newly plumped lips Lindsay Lohan walked the red carpet looking a disheveled mess, but then what’s new about that?

I’m sure the actress got many calls from Britney Spears last night, asking for her ratty extensions back.
