Front Row At Armani Privé Fall 2009

Is Megan Fox serious? Like really?

She’s at a Couture show for Christ sake, can’t she at least pretend like she deserves to be there.

She should be taking acting advice from the great Cate Blanchett – who’s doing her best to ignore her – because lets face it pouting her way through “Transformers” doesn’t make one a good actress.

*All hail the Queen is back*

Cate Blanchett hasn’t been on the red carpet in a long while as she currently lives in Australia.

Cate and Giorgio Armani have a perfect working relationship.  He creates stunning pieces I’m sure with her in mind, which is why the star was the guest of honour at this show.

She didn’t wear any of the pieces on my wish list, but this Armani Privé Spring 2009 floral sheath dress with an oriental vibe is simply stunning on her and she wears it with such grace.

We are still and will never be worthy *bows*

Kasia Smutniak is the face of Giorgio Armani’s new fragrance ‘Idole d’Armani’.

Giorgio chose Kasia because she has a fresh and modern appeal which combines true feminine sensuality.  She is a rare beauty.

The stunning model wore a floral print Armani Privé Spring 2009 jacket, with a black skirt as she posed alongside the designer.

She wears one Armani Privé dress and this grants Megan Fox front row access and a seat next to the great Cate Blanchett?

Seriously what is this world coming to?

Her dove grey one-shoulder Armani Privé dress is gorgeous I won’t take that away from her, but the make-up once again lets her down.

She really needs to sack her make-up artist because she’s gone from orange to yellow now she’s just too pale.

Elsa Pataky always presents herself well. She’s always graceful, elegant and well dressed and knows a thing or two about Couture gowns so she has earned her spot in the front row.

Her bangs were a bit too blunt during Cannes but they have grown out to a more versatile length.

Her Giorgio Armani Pre-Fall 2009 LBD is simple but so so elegant. I love the silhouette it gives her and the silver details on the shoulders which she complements with a silver clutch.

My hero worship for Dasha Zhukova started off very high at the beginning of the week, but her stock is falling quite sharply.

She looks cute in her Thakoon Resort 2009 printed dress, but it’s much for fitting for an informal event not an Armani Privé show.

I almost missed this because I didn’t recognise her.

Katie Grand would have stood out. I wouldn’t have missed Katie Grand.

Isabelle Huppert also decided to dress down for the occasion considering she was the couture queen at Cannes Film Festival.

Très disappointing.

Front Row At Christian Dior’s Fall 2009 Couture Show

I wasn’t surprised to see Tinsley Mortimer at this show.

The socialite wears a lot of Dior pieces on the red carpet and for this occasion she opted for a navy and gold halter neck silk top, with a matching sheer skirt.

The pop of colours came from her self designed yellow clutch and a her bubble gum pink nails.

In the absence of Dior queen Charlize Theron, I was looking to Marion Cotillard for the front row wow moment. It never came.

The actress arrived wearing an all black Dior look which I found to be quite dull.

Many of you were saying that Dasha Zhukova always has the same expression, well here you have a smile.

The editor-in-chief of Pop magazine looked extremely casual wearing a black tank top, striped skirt and black sandals to attend this show.

Don’t people dress up in couture to go to couture shows anymore?

Where’s Eva Green when you need her?

Dolce & Gabbana’s VIP Room At Milan Fashion Week

In her first public appearance since the Oscars, Freida Pinto arrived at the Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 show this afternoon, looking gorgeous wearing an ivory Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 mini dress.

The dress had a ruffled detail on one shoulder, and she wore her dress with those outstanding bejeweled belts, that were heavily featured in the Spring 2009 collection.

A black clutch and sandals completed her look.

A short while ago, I said that I was surprised when Elsa Pataky attended an event wearing all black, because this is more like the Elsa I know. Wearing bright colours, daring prints, and edgy looks.

Elsa took on one of the toughest looks from Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2009 collection – the voluminous, quarter-back shouldered pieces, and totally rocked it.

Eva Mendes played it safer, and just opted for the runway belt, to go with her purple satin Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Kate Hudson opted for a chocolate Dolce & Gabbana brown suit, with black accents, but her make-up seemed to suit Eva’s look more.

Maybe they switched at the last minute.

Scarlett Johansson, the face of Dolce & Gabbana’s cosmetic line, wore a simple shimmering sheath dress, with jeweled heels and ruby red lips.

More From The Front Row

Brian Reyes

Rachel Bilson is BFF’s with Brian Reyes, so it was no surprise she was front row at his Fall 2009 show.

She wore a rust pleated back Brian Reyes Spring 2009 vest over a moss racer back dress from the same collection.

Michael Kors

This is the hairstyle Heidi Klum should have worn with her Matthew Williamson suit, it’s edgy without bordering on severe.

Her LBD from the Michael Kors Resort 2009 collection is outstanding.

Brian Reyes After Party

After the Brian Reyes show, Rachel Bilson head to the after-party wearing a white from the designers Spring 2009 collection.

As the dress is semi see-through, Rachel wore a white puff-sleeved dress underneath.

Zac Posen

Claire Danes wore a simple silver satin dress, which I do not favour.

Rachel Bilson wore a black pant suit, with a white and black trimmed blouse from Zac Posen Fall 2008 collection. She completed her look with a red clutch.

Nicole Richie was my best dressed at this show, wearing a gorgeous white sleeveless Zac Posen Spring 2009 dress.

Alicia Keys and DJ Leigh Lezark joined her in the front row wearing darker, less summery dresses.

Ralph Lauren

*Sighs*

I am not liking any of this, but what I am most baffled about is why Blake Lively wore those beige shoes to go with her grey sweater dress and tan leather jacket?

Tommy Hilfiger

I think it’s safe to say that Diane Kruger is sponsored by Ray Bans. Why else is she pictured in them every show she goes to?

Selma Blair opted for a LWD with a black belt, tights and clutch.

More From The Front Row

Rodarte

Kristen Dunst was front row at the Rodarte Fall 2009 show looking fantastic wearing a Rodarte Fall 2008 multi-coloured knit dress.

I always love what the Mulleavy sisters produce, I just wish we would see more of their edgy designs on the red carpet.

Calvin Klein

I seriously did not recognise Kate Beckinsale until I saw the caption under her name.

Looking at her hair, I will guess these are clip on bangs. I hope she ditches them before the Oscars.

I appreciate that Kate has tried to shake up her look a bit in this leather dress, but it just feels a bit false.

Eva Mendes wears head-to-toe black. What more can I say?

Erin Wasson + RVCA

Leighton Meester wore a Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2009 ensemble consisting of a gold sequinned top, and a teal snake print skirt, with navy tights and bronze heels.

Like Kate, Leighton as opted for bangs, and like Kate, I don’t think it quite works.

3.1 Phillip Lim

I expected to see more of Becki Newton at fashion week. She arrived at Phillip Lim’s show wearing a taupe sequinned dress, from the designers Spring 2009 collection.

Badgley Mischka

Kellie Pickler continues to shine in the front row. Her she wears a stunning ombre Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with a black sash at the waist.

I have been praising Kellie a lot, but she really should have packed another pair of shoes, she has been wearing those Trib Two’s all week. Even I brought 10 pairs.

Jessica Stroup wore a white strapless Badgley Mischka Spring 2009 collection, with silver slingbacks.

Her dress was presented as a gown, but I equally love this shorten version, as it’s young, fun and suits her personality.

Kim Kardashian wore an black asymmetrical dress, with black Louboutin’s. Another very sophisticated look for Kim.

Anna Sui

Jessica Szhor wore a cute lace dress with black booties.

She as naturally -enviable- thick hair, so I am perplexed about her need for extensions.

Taylor Momsen just tries too hard. What is so wrong with being 15 years old? Why is she trying to act way older than her young years?

I feel like getting a pack of baby wipes, and taking all that eye-liner off her face.

Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld Party

Supermodels Natalia Vodianova and Gisele Bundchen struck a pose together.

With her long leather gloves Natalia wore a crystal embellished Emporio Armani Spring 2009 blazer.

Gisele was conservative by comparison, wearing an all black ensemble.

Julia Restoin Roitfeld attended her brother’s event wearing a cute navy and gold polka dotted Christian Dior Spring 2009 dress with a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 purse.

Pamella Roland Fall 2009 Front Row


My pictures from the Pamella Roland Fall 2009 show, which I attended yesterday are really bad, so I’m waiting for the professional pictures to come through.

Before the show, the pre-show began when Paris Hilton came from backstage to walk to her seat. The paparazzi and guests of the show swarmed her and her sister. I kinda felt sorry for the other celebs, because none of them received this high level of attention.

Paris was in her element, lapping up the attention and posing wearing a cute Pamella Roland Spring 2009 grey sleeveless dress, with a white collar and tie detail.

You will be happy to know she removed her sunglasses before the show started.


Sister Nicky was similarly unfazzed by all the attention. She wore a red jacket, which had a structured collar, with black pants.


Kellie Pickler caused the second greatest stir in the front row. She has become the darling of fashion week, and for this show she wore a cute red belted dress with a full skirt.

The skirt was detailed with floral embellishments.


Amanda Bynes was much taller than I would have thought, and she looked fabulous wearing a black haltered keyhole dress.

I have been reading your comments about Amanda’s hair, and I think it’s hilarious that you share my pain about her hair.

Back in July 2007, I did a post called The Never Changing Hairstyle Of Amanda Bynes. Cut to 2009, and her hairstyle is still the same.


Jessica Stroup arrived without a coat – brave girl – showing off how fabulous she looked, wearing a navy silk chiffon Pamella Roland Spring 2009 dress, with a ruffled plunging neckline, which she wore with silver peep-toes.

*brrr*


Kristen Bell slipped in wearing a red sheath Pamella Roland Spring 2009 dress, which she wore under her leather jacket.


Katrina Bowden wore the cutest, sun-shiniest mini dress she could find from the Pamella Roland Spring 2009 collection, and it fits her style perfectly.

The strapless dress was embellished with silver crystals, which complimented her heels.


Michelle Trachtenberg quite clearly was not in the mood to play dress up.


I was not in the front row, but the gorgeous Nigel Barker was. Even though I have seen so many celebrities this week, I have not asked for pictures or autographs, as I’m sure it gets really tedious for them.

But when I saw Nigel, I just had to grab a second of his time. He is even more gorgeous in real life and very charming. *Swoon*

He took his mother to the show. You love him more now don’t you? *sighs*

More From The Front Row

Alice + Olivia

Paris Hilton showed off her very long legs wearing a LWD with a embellished bodice, and a multi-layered skirt

She completed her look with silver sparkling heels, and a faux-fur shrug.

Nicky Hilton opted for head-t0-toe black.

I love Kim Kardashian’s white waistcoat and pants set, but I don’t like the hair.

This look is so tailored, that a sleek ponytail or bun, would have worked better for me.

The Hilton sisters were in black and white, so were the Kardashian’s with Khloe being the one to faded to black.

I am loving Kristen Bell’s look. I just got a pair of tapered black trousers like this from H&M, so I think I may steal this look for tomorrow.

Adrienne Bailon looks adorable wearing a pink Alice + Olivia strapless ruffle bib dress. She gave her cutesy look an edge with a biker jacket, and the celebrity uniform shoe – the YSL Trib Two’s.

Tracy Reese

A fresh faced Paris Hilton arrived at this show wearing a red velvet dress, with a lush jacket.

I love this jacket, especially the puffy shoulders.

Nicky paired her leather jacket with a white dress.

This is an adorable LWD from Tracy Reese’s Spring 2009 collection, but again Kim Kardashian’s hair is bothering me.

Kellie Pickler wore a peachy halter with skin-tight jeans. She looked fabulous here, and even better at the Pamella Roland show which I saw her at today, but more on that later.

Jill Stuart

Kristen Bell opted for a gorgeous summery floral strapless dress, with a grey cardigan.

Michelle Trachtenberg wore a grey Jill Stuart Resort 2009 halter neck dress, with a cute bow on the hip.

Jessica Stroup opted for a white floaty dress from the Spring 2009 collection.

Amanda Bynes is wearing a stunning teal dress with a tiered skirt, but she really needs to work on her angles, that pose is so off.
