“Everybody’s Fine” Screening At 2009 AFI Festival

Victoria Beckham like Prabal Gurung has a huge celebrity following.

Drew Barrymore is very much channeling grown up chic these days, as her look has matured.

The good thing is the Drew we all know and love still shines though.

She walked the red carpet last night wearing a well worn Victoria Beckham violet Giral strapless dress with black satin Casadei heels.

I do love the dress on Drew, but the jeweled pin feels unnecessary.

Victoria Beckham and Katherine Jenkins have worn the dress in this rich violet colour, and they have also both worn the black version along with Elle Macpherson.

This is the dialogue as it happened in my mind as I was looking at Kate Beckinsale on this red carpet.

“Kate Beckinsale is stunning, she never lets me down on the carpet. She’s glowing in her J.Mendel Spring 2010 dress. I wish I had her legs…..” THUD.

That thud stopped at her feet. Seriously Kate, why?

We’ve established that YSL Trib Two’s are the most comfortable shoes in the world, but they’re not doing any justice to her pretty marble jacquard strapless structural J.Mendel dress.

A contrast like this can be great on the red carpet, but this on this occasion it doesn’t work for me.

27.10.09 In Her Closet

In Victoria Beckham’s Closet – dVb Jeans, Victoria Beckham Collection & Loewe

Victoria Beckham was in London recently to no doubt work in her collection which is produced in the UK.

The designer was spotted arriving at London’s Heathrow airport wearing her favourite black blazer, and standard accessories including YSL Trib Two pumps, Hermes Birkin and her blackberry.

What we haven’t seen before are these two tone cord jeans from her own dVb Spring 2010 denim collection.

They are a bit patchwork for my liking, but as usual VB makes them work.

You can view her Spring 2010 denim collection here.

Whilst departing London a few days later Victoria was again spotted in her self designed clothes.

This time she wore a felt cape from her Fall 2009 collection which has zippers on the sleeves.

Victoria is a girl after my own heart because despite the dipping temperatures she’s refusing to wear tights, instead she wears her cape like a dress with her favourite Christian Louboutin black suede ankle boots.

Instead of a Birkin, her chosen arm candy for the flight home was a Loewe Paloma 29 bag from the Resort 2009 collection.

The elegant navy calf bag has gold hardware of a simple hook and looks beautiful with its classic shape.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Blake Lively In Victoria Beckham Collection & Hilary Swank In Vionnet

Many of you were very vocal about your surprise that Blake Lively took an early lead in the poll this week.

The Gossip Girl actress was the eventual winner, wearing an elegant Victoria Beckham Spring 2010 black peplum dress with a lust worthy pair of Christian Louboutin heels.

Jennifer puts this win down to Blake “owning this look”, and Justme said “I think the reason Blake is winning is because it’s harder to pull off fabulosity in a simple VB black dress, whereas it’s easy to do so in a beautiful gown”.

Hilary Swank was my favourite wearing a stunning Vionnet Grecian gown.

She glows and the gown flatters her figure.

Hilary looked so regal red carpet at the Amelia premiere, it took me back to the 2005 Oscars when she was a knock-out in the stunning navy blue Guy Laroche gown.

It gave me that same special feeling which is partly because of the gown, but also because of Vionnet’s rich history.

2009 Angel Ball to Benefit Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation

Whilst striking her signature pose Blake Lively look stunning wearing a Victoria Beckham black peplum mini dress.

She paired her dress with Christian Louboutin Calypso heels which have a navy sparkling toe cap.

We haven’t seen a lot of Victoria Beckham herself, but her dresses have to be the most popular dresses both on and off the red carpet at the moment.

Leighton Meester even wore 2 of VB’s dresses in one episode of ‘Gossip Girl’.

Denise Rich must be happy that all is now well at the house of Lacroix.

The songwriter is a huge fan of Christian Lacroix work, so for this occasion she donned a multi-colour printed Spring 2009 dress.

This is surprisingly the first look we have seen on the red carpet from that S09 collection, which is a shame because it was one of my favourites from Lacroix.

Jennifer Hudson left daddy holding the baby again as she had another night on the red carpet.

This time she wore a very simple sleeveless black dress paired with black heels and a black patent belt.

Natalie Cole and Iman are impossible.

How do they manage to look so young?

Natalie looks as young as Blake Lively here wearing a Haute Hippie fringed sequin dress.

As much as I like Paula Patton’s navy Lanvin dress, she should have worn it without that OTT necklace.

Lanvin speaks for itself it doesn’t need trinkets.

Runway To ‘Reveal’s 5th Birthday Party’ – Carol Vorderman In Victoria Beckham Collection

Last night at former ‘Countdown’ TV presenter Carol Vorderman wore a grey Victoria Beckham Carmontelle cashmere-blend dress on the red carpet when she attended the ‘Reveal’ magazine party.

The press always give Carol a hard time about what she wears, but she looks fantastic for her 48 years, plus she’s not afraid of fashion.

A few years ago the press criticized her heavily for wearing Roland Mouret Galaxy dresses – she had a blue and green one.

They almost went as far a saying that she shouldn’t have been allowed to wear the dress, which was a favourite of many celebrities.

When I spoke to the Roland Mouret a few weeks ago about the horrible press Carol had received, he shared my disappointment at how the press had treated her.

He said, “I design for every woman”.

“She brought the dress, she looked fantastic in the dress, why shouldn’t she wear the dress?”

Why indeed.

This is not first time Carol has worn a Victoria Beckham dress.

A few weeks ago she was spotted wearing a Victoria Beckham Ribart felt dress which features a zip running from top to bottom down the back.

This dress was equally flattering, skimming her curves as she posed.

This dress is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter US for $1,875, but has sold-out on the international site.

Louis Dundas Centre Launch Party

Elizabeth Hurley was spotted leaving the Louis Dundas Centre Launch Party at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London last night glowing in a Versace Fall 2009 aqua gown.

I love this stunning one-shoulder satin gown which has paillettes covering the shoulder and part of the bodice.  She really knows how to work a Versace gown.

Silver accessories complete this amazing look.

Liz + Versace = Perfection.

Tana and Gordon Ramsay left this event hand in hand.

He scrubs up well in a dark grey suit, whilst Tana wore a black Victoria Beckham Spring 2009 fitted dress with maroon strappy sandals.

Love the shoe choice.

Abigail Clancy is wearing a sexy Alexander Wang draped mini dress, but for once I can not see her underwear.

This must be a first.

The WAG wore her nude and black draped dress with black strappy sandals as she posed with her guest who wore a lace LBD and Jimmy Choo heels.

Jade Jones and Emma Bunton are like childhood sweethearts. They’ve been together for as long as I can remember.

It was bitterly cold in London last night, so unlike the rest who dared to show a bit of flesh, Emma was more covered up wearing a red dress under a black blazer.

Jade looked very dapper in his pinstriped navy suit.
