Jamie King In Jason Wu – 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree

The gorgeous Jamie King attended the 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree which was held at The London Hotel in West Hollywood, California yesterday.

Like Diane Kruger, she also wore Jason Wu to this event but her dress is from the Fall 2011 collection.

Her ivory long sleeve shirt dress with a shimmering lace overlay is absolutely divine. Just how I imagined it would be off the runway.

The monochromatic look included a black ribbon tied around the high neckline, black patent kitten heels, a black Chanel clutch and a gold waistband with a bow detail.

Even with the black pumps I really like this look.

It’s simple, beautiful, well accessorized and despite being a Fall look she got the memo that this was a summer soiree.

Lea Michele In Alberta Ferretti – 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree

Lea Michele has had a fantastic red carpet run recently despite the oversized shoes, which we couldn’t see at the 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree which was held at The London Hotel in West Hollywood, California yesterday.

The ‘Glee’ actress wore an Alberta Ferretti Fall 2011 black gown with velvet floral details.

Her halter has been understandable lined from the runway, so I had to look to what else was bugging me about this look.

It’s the hair. The braided headband isn’t working for me.

I’m also not keen on the fact that in comparison to everyone else at this event she appears to be a tad overdressed.

Plus she doesn’t really have the height to pull off this look.

Jayma Mays In Zuhair Murad – 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree

Jayma Mays was pretty in pink at the 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree which was held at The London Hotel in West Hollywood, California yesterday.

The ‘Glee’ actress has been seen a lot recently on the red carpet giving us a variety looks with varying success.

On this occasion she wore a Zuhair Murad Fall 2011 mini dress.

Her gorgeous pale pink one-sleeve dress has a delicate beaded detail on the sleeve and skirt plus a pink ribbon accent.

I love everything about this look save the heavy pumps.

Why wear something so delicate and heavenly if you’re going to weigh it down with heavy metallic pumps?

Swarovski jewels completed her look.

Diane Kruger In Jason Wu – 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree

Diane Kruger opted for a super cute look at the 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree which was held at The London Hotel in West Hollywood, California yesterday.

The German actress wore a Jason Wu Resort 2012 head-to-toe ensemble.

She stole Brad Goreski’s look by teaming black shorts with a navy blazer and a white pleated bibbed shirt which was accented with a black bow tie.

Her Jason Wu Resort 2012 accessories included an eggshell ‘Emma’ python clutch and a pair of ‘Arizona’ strappy sandals which are to-die-for.

Only Diane (Chloe Sevigny and Leighton Meester) can pull off these type of looks.

It wouldn’t surprise me if Mr Wu designed this with Diane in mind.

A purposely messy side bun, dark plum nails and pink glossy lips completed her look.

9th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree – Amber Heard In Dolce & Gabbana

My best dressed at the 9th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree was Amber Heard.

My girl of the moment channeled her inner ‘Betty Draper’ in a non-cheesy way.

You have to possess a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to pull of this type of look without looking like an extra from “Mad Men”.

Amber carries this look with aplomb.

The “Zombieland” actress went for a colour-block Dolce & Gabbana dress with a peplum at the waist.

The look is elegant, classic and timeless.

I especially love the hair which helps bring this 60s vibe to life.

Black peep-toes, a black clutch and Miriam Haskell jewels complete this stunning look.

BDOTW contender for me.

9th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree – Kim Kardashian In Victoria Beckham Collection

Well, well. Now this is a surprise.

Kim Kardashian attended the 9th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree yesterday wearing a Victoria Beckham Fall 2010 LBD.

The dress fits her perfectly.

We all know Kim is very proud of her curves and that she loves to show off her tiny waist. This dress flatters those curves and cinches in her waist.

Kim could’ve picked one of the many well worn looks like so many other celebs before her, but she picked a pencil dress we’ve haven’t seen on the red carpet.

We have of course seen those Trib Two’s a billion times before.

She’s not my favourite on the red carpet, but I like to give credit when it’s due.

Well played Kim.

9th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree – Cat Deeley In J. Mendel

“So You Think You Can Dance” host Cat Deeley was one of the stars invited to InStyle’s Summer Soiree in LA last night.

The British presenter flashed us that cute smile which we all adore as she posed in her gorgeous J. Mendel Spring 2010 dress.

The white and peach tulle dress is festooned with a ruffle detail on the hip which cascades down her skirt.

I kinda wish she’d pulled her hair back, as it feels like it competing for attention again the detail on her skirt, but that could just be down to her pose.

Jimmy Choo silver heels complete the look.

Do you love this look as much as I do?

Would you like to see this up for BDOTW?

InStyle Magazine’s Summer Soiree

I don’t think I have ever said this before in reference to Ashlee Simpson, but I LOVE what she is wearing.

Usually her look has a “I Wannabe In The Band” type of vibe to it, but here she channels a very cute, feminine summery look that I just can’t get enough of.

Her strapless shimmering champagne coloured Jill Stuart playsuit is so chic, which she pairs with pearls, a white Dolce & Gabbana clutch and grey Brian Atwood heels.

For me the best dressed at this event.

Katie Cassidy wore a modified Balenciaga leopard print dress from the Fall 2009 collection.

I love the draping detail around the hips defining the waist, with her bold multi-coloured clutch and silver strappy heels. I’m really happy black pumps are not in this picture.

I don’t know who Yvonne Strahovski is, but I knew it only took me 2 seconds to fall in love with her cute ensemble.

Her Camilla & Marc Spring 2008 striped blazer with her ivory skirt and blood red shoes has a Ralph Lauren feel to it.

Love it.

Jessica Stroup shows a bit of her sassy side wearing a shortened black strapless Rachel Roy Fall 2009 dress with lace panels.

She paired her dress with Stella McCartney black heels and a matching Sergio Rossi clutch.

I’ve loving how her bob is constantly evolving. I can barely remember how she looked with longer hair.

Jessica is neck and neck with Ashley Greene as my favourite red carpet newbie this year.

I go back and forth with everyone who wears Herve Leger. I know many of you wish these bandages dresses were burned, but some do look great.

This isn’t one of those times. Eliza Dushku is a busty lady and this type of dress doesn’t flatter.

I preferred this Herve Leger armor-trim dress on the runway with one strap rather than two, but I do love the YSL tribute sandals which complement the dress well.

Eliza also carried a bright colourful clutch.

“Lost” actress Emilie de Ravin has been MIA from the red carpet for a long while, but she makes a spectacular return wearing a beautiful ivory lace Max Azria Fall 2009 mini dress.

The runway dress is styled have more of a tougher edge, but Emile’s fully lined version appears softer although she added a studded belt to prevent her look from being too sickly sweet.

Like Alexa Chung, Cat Deeley is flying the flag for us Brits in the US but her chic style is more to my liking.

Cat wore British brands via her a white crochet Jaeger dress paired with tan Mulberry sandals.

Our English rose glows so beautifully, with clean golden locks.

Jennifer Morrison opted for a strapless orange Sonia Rykiel dress with a folded neckline and a voluminous skirt.

I love the bright colour and the cute braided hairstyle.

She pairs her look with a Raven Kauffman Couture clutch.

Miranda Cosgrove has such an infectious smile it’s hard not to love her.

The actress walked the red carpet wearing a Vena Cava Narthex tiered dress.

The brushstroke-print tiers on the bodice and hem adds a touch of colour to the cream sleeveless dress.

Dania Ramirez opted for a white Dolce & Gabbana trademark strapless bustier dress with a eyelet skirt and bright yellow heels.

Krysten Ritter wore red strappy sandals with her midnight blue Proenza Schouler quilted bustier dress.

The dress has a quilted silk charmeuse bustier with perfectly complements the voluminous pleated silk faille skirt.

Sanaa Lathan looked radiant wearing a Tadashi Shoji Fall 2009 hyacinth print chiffon one-shoulder dress.

Jordana Brewster’s Reem Acra Fall 2009 gold leaf jacquard halter dress with black belt, ensure she stood out amongst everyone else who opted for a more summery look.

Garcelle Beauvais opted for a full-length one-shouldered pale pink dress with a coral floral print.

She paired her dress with gold, a tan clutch and coral hooped earrings.

Maggie Grace is always so graceful.

I love her one-shouldered dress with a Dries van Noten Spring 2009-esqe mosaic print.

I’m really not keen on Shenae Grimes’ make-up, but her navy zipper trimmed Isabel Lu dress is cute.

Her look is paired with Miu Miu heels and a Kotour clutch.

Radha Mitchell wore a floaty floral vintage Cardinali dress and vintage KJL bangle from Decades Inc., paired with a Bottega Veneta clutch.

The white sunglasses and wedges add to the summery look she was going for.

Jessica Lucas wore a beautiful emerald one-shouldered Jay Godfrey Resort 2010 dress with a black waistband.

The “Melrose Place” actress accessorized with black pumps, a black clutch and a Swarovski bracelet.

The fashion roller coaster that is Lynn Collins takes another nose dive.

Although I do like the dress and the bright pink lips, the rest of the look feels alien the dress.

The hair is really granny-ifed and the Jeffrey Campbell Potion Ankle Boots – which are very similar to the Opening Ceremony boots – are very rock chick making this look too busy for me.
