Emmy Rossum In Sophia Kokosalaki - Global Green USA's 10th Annual Pre-Oscar Party

After going for a sassy look earlier in the week, Emmy Rossum was back to her ethereal best while attending Global Green USA’s 10th Annual pre-Oscar party, held at Avalon in Hollywood, California yesterday evening, which was also attended by Miranda Kerr.

Emmy was glowing wearing a Sophia Kokosalaki pretty pink long-sleeved chiffon dress, to which she added a punch via her vivid fuchsia lip colour.

Sporting a retro pinned-back ‘do, the actress styled her look with Tacori earrings, a Piaget ring, and silver Charlotte Olympia shoes.

I’m very excited at the return of Greek designer Sophia Kokosalaki, who last showed during the Fall 2010 season.

She returns for Spring 2012 with a beautiful collection on a breezy, fresh white, lemon and ocean blue colour palette with grey, black and sea green.

I love the Grecian influences and that her signature draped pieces continue to feature in her collections.

Stripped asymmetrical hemlines and caged details provided the focus of this collection.

The collection showcased many mini dresses, batwing tops, fitted pants, strapless dresses, tea-length dresses and a gorgeous poufy white tulle gown.

I also saw some sportswear influences. One look had a top that appeared to have a hooded detail, but it was actually just the clever construction of the piece.

I was lucky enough to see a few special pieces that didn’t appear on Style.com, like the lemon draped dress above which I hope to see on someone like Kate Bosworth or Keira Knightley.

Favourites: Lemon draped dress and strapless dress

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Kate Bosworth, Kate Beckinsale, Elizabeth Olsen, Anne Hathaway, Michelle Monaghan, Emma Stone, Keira Knightley, Ginnifer Goodwin, Kirsten Dunst, Zooey Deschanel and Amy Adams

Jada Pinkett Smith looked absolutely gorgeous when she posed outside the Ed Sullivan Theatre before making an appearance on “The Late Show With David Letterman” in New York this week.

The actress was on the show to talk about her new TNT show ‘Hawthorne’ which will the premiere next week.

She also talked about being on the cover of Essence magazine where she’s posing nude. She said that she did it for her daughter Willow, to show empowerment and positive self image.

Still sporting her healthy glow the actress opted to wear a silverly white Sophia Kokosalaki Spring 2010 dress.

Jada has quite a strong look so frilly girlie looks don’t always flatter but this playful bubble hem dress does.

Her look was paired with a gorgeous pair of Pierre Hardy metallic trim platform T-strap sandals.

Joint Best Dressed Award
This Atelier Versace Fall 2009 strapless gown was made for a body like Beyonce Knowles’.

The colour is absolutely divine on her, the sheen of the dress really pops, the bodice has an strong warrior feel to it which would’ve been the desired look for the independent woman.

I love how this gown skims her hip, and I’m pleasantly surprised at the lack of bling.

I would’ve preferred her hair pulled back, but now I’m just looking for flaws in an otherwise flawless red carpet look for B.

Joint Best Dressed Award
Trying to pick who was Best Dressed out of Beyonce and Katy Perry, was like a mother being asked to pick her favourite child.

How do you choose?

Both are wearing my favourite designers, plus they are both wearing my favourite looks from the respective collections, and both have bodies to die for.

Normally Katy wows us in a different way in eccentric Manish Arora pieces, but this time she wows us by looking so graceful in a nude one shoulder Marchesa Spring 2010 draped tulle strapless gown with embroidered black floral.

A very pleasant surprise indeed.

If there’s any room, both are up for BDOTW.

Most Sexy Award
Whilst stars like Katy Perry and Beyonce were wearing stunning – should’ve been saved for the Oscars – gowns, Shakira opted for shimmering silver ultra mini dress which left very little to the imagination.

I wonder if this dress was custom-made by Donatella Versace because the Sharika is wearing Versace Spring 2010 heels with her look.

De Ja Vu Award
Asia Argento wears an asymmetrical Sophia Kokosalaki Fall 2009 black and gold beaded dress which will give you a strong sense of de ja vu.

This is because she wore a very similar dress on the Italian version of X Factor last week.

I must preferred the previous look. This doesn’t feel as well put together.

Surprisingly Not Predictable Award
When I learned that Leona Lewis was attending this show I assumed she would wear something quite boring, but I was wrong.

Normally we see calf-length dresses, tights and no personality.

Not only is she giving us plenty of personality, but she’s also looking very sexy in her corseted look which includes black sequin harem pants and black vest Vivienne Westwood ensemble.

I can’t believe I just said harem pants are sexy, but Leona makes them work.

Normally I would complain about the two-tone hair, but it all adds to the fierce attitude of this look.

Her coral lips are divine.  I wish I could get away with that shade.

On Trend Award
Normally I find it hard to say anything nice about Joss Stone, but I really like her look.

It’s young, fun, on trend with the Over-The-Knee boots, plus I love how her super glossy hair is swept to one side.

Most Disappointed Award
Normally Pixie Lott is a lot more creative on the red carpet.

She normally brings colour and vibrancy, to this occasion her D&G black ruffled dress is nice but I know she can deliver more.

Not More Ankle Boots On The Red Carpet Award
Miranda Cosgrove was the teen star of the night working Alexander McQueen ankle boot with a black and blue harlequin dress.

Worst Dressed Award
“Hey girl, don’t you think my outfit is fly?”

No.  We don’t Lil Kim.

Two words spring to mind. Hot Mess.

You’ll be surprised to know that this is it.

I can’t believe that such a big ceremony pull in so few stars.

I have been talking about the X Factor a lot since it started 3 weeks ago here in the UK, but Italy also have their own version.

The gorgeous Asia Argento who you may remember was one of the judges during Cannes Film Festival this year, was also a judge on the Italian X Factor this week.

During Cannes she wore a lot of Armani’s Privé gowns, but on the X Factor she looked outstanding wearing a black and gold Sophia Kokosalaki Fall 2009 mini dress, with glossy black leggings and black booties.

I love Sophia Kokosalaki’s work, so I’m happy that she is getting a lot of celebrity love at the moment.

Rinko Kikuchi recently wore a very similar gold and black dress to the 22nd Tokyo International Film Festival Opening Ceremony.

You have to admire Rinko Kikuchi, as she always keeps things interesting on the red carpet.

The actress opted for a head-to-toe Sophia Kokosalaki Fall 2009 runway look which is ever so slightly modified.

The gold strappy dress with a black skirt, is gathered and embellished with silver panels.

What I love most about this look are Rinko boots.

She looks like a warrior, on her way to battle.

A much as I love Zoe Saldana and her Giambattista Valli Spring 2010 orange floaty mini dress, it doesn’t feel quite grand enough for a Film Festival opening ceremony.

Her previous look would at the “Avatar” stage greeting would have been preferred.

The shoes are also killing me.*yikes*

Sigourney Weaver has the tendency to drop some stink bombs on the red carpet, but she comes up smelling of roses on this occasion wearing a petrol blue satin off-the-shoulder gown.

Japanese actresses Tae Kimura, Ryoko Hirosue and Miki Nakatani walked the red carpet together, each wearing red dresses in various styles, shades and textures.

Ryoko in the middle opted for a strapless silk chiffon Derek Lam dress with frayed ruffles at the ruched bodice, which she paired with champagne coloured heels.

Tae’s red strappy gown is very elegant in it’s simplicity, and Miki strapless velvet gown is divine.

I always wondered that if this Chloe Fall 2009 halter nude dress was worn on the red carpet, if the wearer would be tempted to belt it.

Japanese actress Rie Miyazawa didn’t, she kept the dress loose and floaty.

I love the ruffled collar on this dress.
