Rachel Weisz In Sonia Rykiel – ‘The Bourne Legacy’ Deauville American Film Festival Photocall

We wait all summer for some major red carpet action, and now we have two film festivals running at the same time with Toronto Film Festival just around the corner.

Rachel Weisz attended ‘The Bourne Legacy’ photocall during the 2012 Deauville Film Festival in France this weekend.

The actress has left much of the promotion of this movie to costar Jeremy Renner, so it’s great to see her back on the red carpet.

Dressed in this summer’s favourite red carpet colour, orange, the British actress looked pretty wearing a Sonia Rykiel Resort 2013 dress.

The flowing ruffled neckline and rose appliqué dress was cinched in the waist with a matching belt.

Rachel paired her dress with black Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, with a wavy hairstyle and flawless makeup to complete the look.

I want to complain about the shoes colour choice, but in hindsight I find myself more bothered by the placement of the belt which cuts across the rose appliqués.

Sonia Rykiel Fall 2012

Sonia Rykiel’s Fall 2012 collection consisted of easy sporty pieces which had a surprisingly spring-like feel, but the black ear warmers worn by every model reminded you that this was a Fall collection.

We saw plenty of summery chiffon dresses alongside neutral chunky knits and shearling coats.

There was also a masculine-feminine split too, as boxy suits and double-breasted coats were presented alongside sweet sweaters over blouses, trompe l’oeil shirt dresses, fitted knitted pencil skirts worn low on the hips, belted long-sleeve dresses and sheer dresses with sexy thigh-high splits.

New creative director April Crichton very much captured the spirit of the Sonia Rykiel girl/woman.

Everything was easy and wearable with key accessories including ankle-strap wedges and shoulder bags.

The finale is always fun, as models get a chance to finally smile for the first time in four weeks.

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Kate Bosworth, Kirsten Dunst, Keira Knightley, Jaime King and Rachel Bilson.

Malin Akerman In Sonia Rykiel – ‘Wanderlust’ LA Premiere

Malin Akerman joined Jennifer Aniston on the red carpet last night for the ‘Wanderlust’ LA premiere.

The bubbly blonde, sporting a faux bob, wore a Sonia Rykiel Fall 2011 dress.

Her maroon dress with fuchsia satin sleeves features a keyhole, a tie on the side of her neck and an open back.

Whilst I like her ‘Possession’ strappy sandals courtesy of Walter Steiger, I wish she’d opted for a pair of heels in fuchsia as her clutch was maroon.

Her look almost feels unfinished as a result of the nude heels.

Sonia Rykiel Spring 2012

We followed the super long yellow chalked runway to find the Sonia Rykiel Spring 2012 presentation on Saturday afternoon.

The brand is known for its fun, energetic presentations, but the mood was more relaxed as the models took to the runway in their 20s, sportswear-inspired looks.

Gorgeous peach, orange, ivory and yellow pieces were presented alongside vivid floral prints and knit stripes.

Pleats, thigh-high splits and cut-out details injected a lot of fun into this collection of feminine dresses, masculine pants, oversized blouses, pant suits, rompers and jumpsuits.

The models’ bouncy soft curls were teamed with nude lip colour for a simple yet beautiful finishing touch to this typically chic Parisian collection.

Key accessories included a selection of fold-over bags, chic box clutches, bags with built-in arm rests plus lace-up heels and flats.

Front Row: Sonia Rykiel, Mia Moretti and Leigh Lezark

Favourites: Ivory dress with black stripe and mustard top and skirt

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Carey Mulligan, Elizabeth Olsen, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Tilda Swinton, Sophia Bush, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Jennifer Lawrence, Reese Witherspoon, Emily Browning and Hailee Steinfeld

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.
