Michelle Obama In Tracy Reese & Samantha Cameron In Jonathan Saunders – Downing Street Barbecue

Michelle Obama and Samantha Cameron reunited today in London to serve food to members of the military during a barbecue in the garden of 10 Downing Street.

Michelle opted to wear a Tracy Reese Pre-Fall 2011 dress which I don’t think was quite the right choice for a barbecue on a sunny day.

The crystal-embellished black chiffon dress has a white print detail on the bodice, cuffs and skirt.

Despite the lightweight fabric, the look still feels so heavy when you compare Michelle to Samantha.

Samantha’s Jonathan Saunders Spring 2011 short sleeve dress with a green waistband was much more summery and appropriate for the event.

Love that both women supported designers from their respective countries.

Who Wore Tracy Reese Better? Julia Stiles or Taraji P. Henson

Julia Stiles was the first to wear this Tracy Reese Fall 2010 dress to the “Green Zone” New York premiere back in February.

Her dress was fresh off the runway as it had been presented just 10 days prior to her premiere.

Black tights – it was a snowy February in New York – a gold Cole Haan clutch and Giuseppe Zanotti ankle strap patent heels complete the look.

Taraji P. Henson wore the same dress to the 2010 VH1 Hip Hop Honors in New York City a few months later.

She kept her look equally simple pairing her dress with a stack of bangles, black peep-toes with a matching clutch.

Julia has never interested me on the red carpet, and this look is no exception.

Taraji doesn’t win by default, she wins because she was absolutely glowing in this dress. The colour was amazing against her skin and the style suited her personality.

2010 Vh1 Hip Hop Honors – Taraji P. Henson In Tracy Reese

The “2010 VH1 Hip Hop Honors” took place last night in New York.

Actress Taraji P. Henson attended the event showing off her sassy side wearing a taupe Tracy Reese Fall 2010 dress.

I love colour, and I’m surprised that I also like the black lace yoke which makes this dress more interesting.

I like that she was able to dress for this music event looking sophisticated and sexy at the same time.

Black peep-toes and a black clutch complete the look.

2009 ALMA Awards

Best Dressed Award
It’s been a while but Selena Gomez finally wears something that I really love, as she had been dressed older than her teen years.

I adore her pink Tracy Reese Black Label gown, especially the cute petals adorning the bodice and shoulder.

It’s the perfect gown for her both the colour and style.

Best Spring 2010 Red Carpet Debut Award
Jordana Brewster picked a stunning gown from Reem Acra’s recently presented Spring 2010 collection.

The strapless draped canary yellow gown is such an ethereal colour which adds warmth of her skin.

Perfect choice for her.

Back to Black Award
After having a very brief flirtation as a blonde, Nelly Furtado goes back to her natural darker hair colour.

She looked stunning last night wearing Elie Saab Fall 2009 black halter-neck gown with contrasting lace panel for a provocative twist.

This is her second Elie Saab look in a row.

Slightly Disappointed, But I Do Like It Award
I expected a big gown from Eva Longoria on this red carpet, but I guess she was saving them for the show.

The host for the night opted for a strapless taupe paillette covered column Oscar de la Renta dress – which slightly squash the twins – paired taupe heels.

Her hair and neutral make-up are perfect for this look.

Best Non-Supported Actress Award

Jennifer Morrison should really have worn a bra with her Herve Leger cream gown, because the twins are looking a wee bit lopsided.

Once I got over that I could appreciated how stunning she looks.

She could have easily opted for a neutral make-up, but added a dash of red to the lips for a more sultry look.

Frizz Ease Award
Dania Ramirez’ also wore a canary yellow gown, but hers was by Pamella Roland.

I love the gown and the criss-crossing ruched detail on the bodice, but girlfriend needs some serum in her hair to control that frizz.

De Ja Vu Award
Jamie-Lynn Sigler wore a gown earlier this week in exactly the same colour, but this time her gown is strapless.

I’m more excited by the necklace than the gown.

Most Disappointing Award
Salma Hayek would normally proudly show-off the twins, wear a stunning gown, or do both.

This is not a look I would associate with Salma.

The shorter velvet deep lilac modified Bottega Veneta Fall 2009 dress is hideous and so over accessorized with the two necklaces and jewled headband.

YSL metallic Trib Two heels and a matching Bottega Veneta box clutch completes this terrible look.  I really hate it.

Worst Dressed Award
I was surprised Eva La Rue was wearing a Zuhair Murad gown, because this gown is very Las Vegas show girl to me.

From the colour to the embellished neckline, it just screams tacky.

What is it with the lack of support on this red carpet?

In Kim Kardashian’s Closet – Tracy Reese Dress


Kim Kardashian attended many shows during New York Fashion Week’s Fall 2009 presentations. One of them was the Tracy Reese’s Fall 2009 show.

The TV personality opted for a 40s inspired look, wearing a Tracy Reese strapless peplum dress, with a black belt, and a black patent pumps.

Her lips were painted red, which was a nice touch, as it would have been easy to opt for nude lips with this dress.

The designer is known for her pretty, feminine clothing and this dress fits that mold. You can buy it from eLuxury.com for $400.
