Katherine Jenkins Wears Designer & High Street Brands To Promote Her New Album “Believe”

Katherine Jenkins continues to promote her new album “Believe”.

During her promotion she dazzled in designer dresses, but also made high-street looks we can all afford look amazing.

After she was helicoptered into Swansea, the singer changed out of her Oscar de la Renta dress into a strapless sassy D&G dress to sign her CD for waiting fans.

The floral print dress was less structured on Katherine, as she opted out of the runway belt and paired her dress with tights and Trib Two’s.

The next day she headed to London Westfield shopping centre to greet fans at HMV.

Here she looked beautiful wearing a black Matthew Williamson jewel detailed dress from the Fall 2009 collection without the runway necklace, which I had assumed was part of the dress.

YLS sandals completed the look.

At HMViIn Manchester Katherine opted for a cute strapless black and white printed French Connection Danask sweetheart dress worn with Trib Two’s.

Attending the “Samsung Pink Ribbon Breast Awareness Day” in London, Katherine glowed in a bright pink French Connection Otto frill dress again worn with Trib Two’s.

My favourite looks here are the Matthew Williamson dress, and the pink French Connection dress. Regular readers will guess why.

Who Wore Zac Posen Better? Kate Winslet or Mariah Carey

Kate Winslet would easily be in my Top 10 of Best Dressed Women on the red carpet.

The British actress walked the red carpet at the 2009 BAFTA Awards were she was later awarded Best Leading Actress.

She looked stunning wearing a black halter neck Zac Posen Resort 2008 mermaid gown which emphasized her enviable curves.

She kept her look simple but no less glamorous with a soft up ‘do and long diamond earrings.

Mariah Carey shocked me by looking equally glamourous wearing the same dress when she walked the red carpet at the “Precious” LA Screening.

Mariah was definitely on fire as she went for a classic Hollywood look, opposed to wearing a dress that was 2 sizes too small for her.

For her MASSIVE improvement and because I don’t think I ever be able to vote for her again in this type of poll, I will give the win to Mariah.

Runway To The Sex And The City 2 Morocco Set – Cynthia Nixon In Hermes

In “Sex And The City” there are 5 main characters – Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, Charlotte and of course New York City.

In both the show and the film the girls rarely leave their 5 character behind, but on Friday Sarah Jessica Parker and Cynthia Nixon were both spotted filming SATC2 in Morocco.

Miranda is the archetypal New Yorker were summers equals air conditioned offices, restaurants, department stores and apartments.

I can just imagine Miranda complaining how hot she is in Morocco, as she tries to prevent herself from burning wearing Factor 50 sunscreen.

Her look is very chic as she tried to keep cool wearing a white wide brimmed hat to keep the sun off her fair skin, paired with a white blazer, a white bag and a white Hermes Spring 2009 halter neck pleated dress.

SJP as Carrie looked adorable as always sporting a Christian Dior J’Adore black tee, a typically Carrie voluminous skirt and of course she completes the look with Manolo Blanik lezzie heels.

The criss cross sandals have a perforated detail all over them.

After Miley made me consider boycotting the movie with her guest appearance, I’m back on track.

“Sex and the City 2” hits theaters May 28, 2010.

In Victoria Beckham’s Closet – Christian Louboutin Maggie Pumps

I love Victoria Beckham because she is the master at manipulating the media.

Girlfriend doesn’t like basketball, she was at the Staples Center to show off her stunning new ‘do. Quite shamelessly and I love her for that.

The new ‘do?  I LOVE IT.

I’ve been campaign long and hard for her to return to her sexy senorita long locks but this softer, curly do is defiantly a step in the right direction.

She used to switch things up quite often, but I guess she’s more focused on producing her dress collection to concentrate on re-inventing herself.

I’m sure when it happens – and I’m still confident it will – she will blow us all away.

Victoria was dressed in dVb jeans, a black Rick Owens vest top and Christian Louboutin Maggie 140 pumps looked thoroughly bored during the game.

In case you were wondering LA Lakers and Dallas Mavericks were playing at the at Staples Center and the Lakers lost 80-94.

Precious Screening At 2009 AFI FEST

What a difference a decent dress can makes to Mariah Carey, as she has a tendency to want to wear very tight gowns that can make her look very trashy.

On this occasion she wore a Zac Posen Resort 2008 black mermaid gown and I think this is the best we have ever seen her, despite the fact that the gown has already been worn on the red carpet earlier this year.

Hair and make-up are fabulous, and she doesn’t go overboard with the bling.

BDOTW contender for sure.

Paula Patton has great legs, so she shortened her Bottega Veneta corseted dress to show them off and this modification works really well for her.

I’m not as excited about her necklace, but I do love her Jimmy Choo ‘Revere’ strappy sandals.

I love Mary J Blige, but I’m not so crazy about her Emillio Pucci Resort 2010 gown as it’s doing nothing for her.

Olivia Wilde opted for a white RM by Roland Mouret Scirocco crepe pencil dress with an asymmetric neckline and cap sleeves.

Nude make-up and accessories complete this look.

Garcelle Beauvais looks incredible wearing a red hot asymmetrical dress with Christian Louboutin glittery peep-toes.

Mo’Nique and her husband Sidney Hicks walked the red carpet together as she glowed wearing a gold shimmering strapless dress.

2009 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Event

Eva Mendes looked incredibly chic wearing a lavender Christian Dior Resort 2010 polka dot dress, worn with a cute white bow accented belt.

She could’ve been obvious and paired her dress with white accessories like the runway, but she instead wore dove grey heels and carried a silver clutch.

Jessica Alba wore a very simple Prada Resort 2010 dress, but I really love this look.

She’s making me eat my words about “boring black dresses” because she looks outstanding.

Bow accented heels and flawless make-up complete this stunning look and have me keeping this look in consideration for BDOTW.

Jordana Brewster was another favourite.  She was very much on the opposite end of the colour spectrum wearing a creme and ultramarine Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2009 dress.

I love the flutter detail around the arm openings, but the shoes are too clunky for this dress.

The runway shoes would have been too matchy matchy, but I would have preferred them to what Jordana is currently wearing.

*Sighs*

I hope Camilla Belle continues to never have a day off looking fabulous.  It would be a very sad day indeed.

Some of you may think what’s the big deal, she’s just wearing a Jason Wu blue dress.

I’d say look at her, she’s naturally glowing.  Her accessories complement her stunning pleated dress.  Not a single hair is out of place and her make-up is flawless.

Yes she should’ve ditched the fringed bag for this picture, but it’s a small detail when everything else looks so perfect.

Most celebrities grow out of their obsessions, but Diane Kruger is still loving her black bows.

This was evident from her bow accented blue blouse which she wore with navy shorts.

For most this would only be acceptable as an off-duty look, but Diane can stand shoulder to shoulder with Eva Mendes in her Dior dress and still look equally chic.

That’s why we all adore her.

Dannii Minogue Wears J’Aton Couture On Week 4 Of The X Factor

Whilst Cheryl Cole was going for the shock factor on Saturday’s X Factor show, Dannii Minogue’s look was more refined.

The judge who is mentoring the girls opted for another J’Aton Couture gown which was just a breath-taking as her gown last week.

Her asymmetrical one-sleeved glittering gown which was accented with a black thin belt, had a delicate lace bodice.

I loved her wavy updo and her soft make-up.

Black platform heels completed her look.

Her second look was a bold shouldered LBD by J’Aton Couture paired with a steel waistband and gold YSL peep-toes.

This look was less dramatic than previous looks but she still looked gorgeous, even with the slightly crimped hair.

In order to still show her respect for the poppy appeal, she wore her poppy as a bracelet.

It has been reported that Simon Cowell is unhappy about the Cheryl and Dannii stealing all the spotlight with their fashion choices.

Apparently he told the girl’s that it was a talent show and not a fashion show. I would say he should concentrate on remembering the contestants names.

Runway To X Factor Week 4 – Cheryl Cole In David Koma

On Saturday night on the X Factor it was Rock week.

I half expected Cheryl Cole to come out wearing a rock chick-inspired Balmain look, but she surprised everyone by wearing a black David Koma Fall 2009 mini dress with Tabitha Simmons Carla suede thigh-high boots.

Her halter neck keyhole dress had an interesting bodice detail of silver tone tubes.

The dress was an interest bold choice, and totally different from what we have seen on the Atelier Versace loving X Factor judge.

I wasn’t crazy about the look, but I didn’t hate it.

I would’ve dislike her look if her hair wasn’t pulled back. The bouffant wouldn’t have worked with this look.

Georgian born designer David Koma graduated in 2009 with distinction in MA Fashion from Central Saint Martins.

David’s pieces are sold exclusively online at Browns Fashion.

After Saturday’s show the press heavily criticized Cheryl’s David Koma dress, saying it looked like a pair of alloy wheels or dustbin lids.

This criticism may have been the reason why Cheryl toned down her look on Sunday night.

She still managed sparkle with her gorgeous smile and gold sequined Les Chiffoniers pants, which she wore with an asymmetrical black slashed top.

Slashed tops was one of the major trends of Spring 2010 fashion week.

She accessorized with a gold peep-toes, a selection of bracelets and a poppy.
