Runway To The 2009 Oscars – Vanessa Hudgens In Marchesa


I will ignore the drama that comes with writing about Vanessa Hudgens, because she looks so beautiful tonight.

On the red carpet Vanessa told Ryan Seacrest that Georgina Chapman the designer of Marchesa – My new BFF 😉 – had redesigned her dress from the runway.

You can see from the runway version, Georgina lengthen the dress to become a mermaid gown, lighten the rosette details, and removed the tulle detail on the shoulder.

Georgina is my Queen, and applaud her work here.

Outstanding.

TV Presenters At The 2009 Oscars


TV presenters at the Oscars tend to be overlooked because they’re there to do a job, and everyone looks to the actresses.

This post is to put the focus on them before the Angelina Jolie’s and Kate’s Winslet’s turn up.

Samantha Harris is presenting on The Insider tonight, and she is wearing a cobalt blue chiffon one-shoulder gown from Gustavo Cadile’s Spring 2009 collection.

Lisa Rinna is presenting for TV Guide Channel, and wearing a purple chiffon tiered skirt halter gown from Gustavo Cadile’s Fall 2009 collection.


Giuliana Rancic is presenting for E! Live from the Red Carpet wearing a Pamella Roland’s burgundy metallic jacquard single strap body hugging bustier gown, straight from this weeks Fall 2009 collection.

Maria Menounos is presenting for Access Hollywood wearing a gorgeous strapless Randi Rahm gown, with a full skirt, which is embroidered with floral rosettes.

I love Samantha’s blue Gustavo Cadile gown, what about you?

2009 Oscar Nominees Luncheon

I am really hoping Anne Hathaway is saving her best dress for the Oscars, because this ivory Chloe crystal embroidered dress is slightly ill fitting, plus I think the colour washes her out.

She wore her dress with Christian Louboutin Very Galaxy heels.

Taraji P. Henson is wearing my favourite colour.

Some of you might think her look is too matchy matchy, but I love the colour against her skin.

What I don’t like is her choice of clutch. Apart from the colour, it feels too big and cheap for her chic Alberta Ferretti ensemble.

Amy Adams wore a haltered turquoise RM by Roland Mouret dress with gold sandals.

Although I like the colour, I am not too sure about the draping on the front of her dress.

It’s nice to see her hair down again.

Kate Winslet was the only nominee who opted for black.

She looked flawless, as we have come to expect, wearing head to toe Helmut Lang.

Penelope Cruz had only arrived in LA, 2 hours before this luncheon, after flying from the Goya Awards in Madrid.

After a 10 hour flight I am sure dressing up was the last thing on her mind, but the Oscar nominated actress make a good effort in this ivory YSL suit.

Love the big blown out hair.

Marisa Tomei wore a very chic Christian Dior ivory belted dress, with champagne coloured Jimmy Choo shoes.

She carried a clutch which matched her dress.

Viola Davis loves bright colours. This was evident in her vibrant yellow SAG Awards gown, and again here, with her red David Meister sheath dress.

She completed her look with Givenchy heels.

Runway To Red Carpet – Marion Cotillard In Jean Paul Gaultier


Oscar winner, Marion Cotillard wore this mermaid-esqe Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2008 Couture gown to the Oscars on Sunday night, which appeared on many Best Dressed list including mine.

Only she could pulled off this amazing mermaid-style gown, which was custom-made for her. Thank god she did not choose the runway version, as I don’t think it would have made the same impact.

It’s was the second red-carpet event in a fortnight that not only did Marion Cotillard win the Best Actress award, but also the second time she opted for a pale shade.

At the BAFTA’s she shined in a fabulous ivory and silver embellished Chanel Fall 2007 Couture dress.

Marion has been supporting French designers by wearing Jean Paul Gaultier to the Cesar Film Awards, Nina Ricci to the SAG Awards and Chanel to the London Film Critics’ Circle Awards and to the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards.

Hopefully it won’t be long before we see her a YSL, Christian Lacroix or Balenciaga creation. I am sure they are queuing up to offer her their clothes.

Has a style icon is born? No she has been an icon for a while, it’s only now that everyone has noticed.

Oscar 2008 Trends – Ladies In Red


It was great to see lots of colour at this years Oscars.

Red was a surprising choice with many celebrities, which was great to see as that meant the ladies were willing to stand out and take a risk with this bold colour.

I guess they took their inspiration from Nicole Kidman’s Balenciaga dress from last years Oscars.

All these woman look fantastic in shades varying from scarlet, to vermillion to crimson and Ruby.
