Exclusive Sketch Of Diane Kruger’s Atelier Versace Fall 2009 Dress

Sorry if this feels like a repost but I was kindly sent the sketch of Diane Kruger’s Atelier Versace Fall 2009 dress and I just had to share.

Looking at the sketch I would say this dress was designed with both Diane and Kate Bosworth in mind.

I can’t wait to see the rest of the Atelier Versace Fall 2009 collection. I’m sure we’ll be drooling over it like the previous collections.

If you see this anywhere else, you know where it came from.

Social Events Of The Week

Samantha Thavasa Disney Collection, Japan

Beyonce and Solange Knowles were in Japan to promote the “Samantha Thavasa Disney Collection” of handbags.

I would’ve thought a younger face like Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez or Miley Cyrus would have been more appropriate to promote Disney line.

Anyway the sisters looked fabulous at the unveiling.

Beyonce looked svelte wearing a Akiko Ogawa Fall 2009 strapless blue patterned dress with an asymmetrical skirt and taupe heels.

It was a drastic transformation but Solange Knowles looks good with her new ‘do. I would never have the guts to sport this look myself so kudos to her.

She wore a white tank top with a cute ruffled pink skirt.

Solange has obviously been inspired by her sisters love of fierce heels, because she’s sporting a very interesting pair of Moschino Cheap & Chic Fall 2009 wedges.

DoSomething.org Celebrates The Power Of Youth, LA

Ashley Greene is becoming my Sophia Bush of 2009.

Each event she gives us something new. It was cute at the Teen Choice Awards, and sassy at this event wearing an Opening Ceremony black bustier dress with a lattice detail on the back.

Sultry soft waves, a mustard clutch and ivory Etro heels complete the look.

Shenae Grimes gives us a rich colour wearing a cute red Moschino tiered v-neck sleeveless dress, with some stunning accessories.

I love that bracelet.

Aubrey O’Day pairs her Alejandro Ingelmo woven slingbacks with a studded top and black leather skirt with an asymmetrical zipper.

Surprisingly covered up for Miss O’Day.

I’m not crazy about Leah Renee’s hairstyle but I do love the ruffles on her Notte by Marchesa strapless dress, which she pairs with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.

“Bandslam” Special Screening, LA

Earlier I spoke about Leighton Meester’s weekend disaster, well Vanessa Hudgens had her own too.

She temporarily revert back to her tried and much tested boho inspired look wearing a Halé Bob’s silk chiffon maxi halter dress.

The print is hideous, the dress makes her look really short, and her feather earrings are cringe-worthy.

Not a good look.

PURE Nightclub, Las Vegas

Jenny McCartney shows us how thigh-high boots can go terribly wrong, undoing all the hard work fashion magazines have been doing trying to convince me that this look can work off the runway.

Lauren Conrad Loves Her Miu Miu Sandals & Marc by Marc Jacobs Satchel

I’m sure many of you will see these pictures of Lauren Conrad matching her tan Miu Miu Double Cross platform sandals with her Marc by Marc Jacobs Dr Q Remy Handbag, and think of two items in your closet that you constant match.

I always match my tan Chloe heels to a tan vintage bag, and my taupe H&M bag with my taupe Nine West open-toe heels. Some things just work well together like Batman and Robin.

Lauren has paired this combo whilst wearing a Kimchi Blue floral playsuit whilst shopping at Barney’s with BFF Lo Bosworth.

She went for a very sophisticated look wearing an ivory blouse and navy skirt whilst headed to Mr. Chow’s for lunch.

And my favourite look was her cute French Connection floral dress worn with her combo whilst strolling in Beverly Hills.

“Inglorious Basterds” LA Premiere

If I pick up one more magazine or read one more blog stating that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are splitting up, I think I’ll tear my hair out.

What do these two have to do to prove how much in love they are with each other, other than mount each other on the red carpet.

Grazia’s headline today is “Angelina’s horror at Brad’s night with ex.” I’m sure you are rolling you eyes like I am.

Mr & Mrs ‘We’re Way Too Genetically Blessed’ put those rumour to bed – for now – looking very much in love on the red carpet last night for the LA premiere of “Inglourious Basterds”.

They were hugging, hold hands and his hand was place on her leather clad butt, as they whipped the crowds and paparazzi into a frenzy.

Sporting lighter locks and wearing minimal make-up, Angelina looked gorgeous wearing a black Michael Kors Fall 2009 black leather strapless dress which had a small pockets on the hips, with two tone Christian Dior heels.

This look reminds me of the sexy leather Versace dress Angelina wore to the Mr & Mrs Smith LA premiere back in 2005.

If the dress looks familiar, that’s because it’s the leather version of fuchsia pink dress Blake Lively wore to the CFDA Awards.

I love the picture below were Angelina and Brad Pitt are genuinely star struck to meet the legendary actor Sidney Poitier.

Diane Kruger was up against the mighty power that is Brangelina, but she didn’t fade into the background.

The star stole the red carpet wearing Atelier Versace backless dress.

Her Fall 2009 couture black silk satin mini dress was completely embroidered with black glass fringes finished in degrade of ruby, grenas, amethyst and sapphire coloured crystals.

Her hair was swept up as she paired her dress with a Versace clutch and heels for this breath-taking look.

Can she make it two for two for Best Dressed Of The Week?

Maria Menounos wore a beautiful Haute Hippie Fall 2009 peach dress with an asymmetrical detail decorated with a sequined panel, which I think looks very similar to a dress presented during the Missoni Spring 2008 collection.

Nude sandals and a complementary silver Nancy Gonzalez clutch complete her look.

Christina Ricci looked amazing wearing a red vintage Azzedine Alaia tight fitted dress covered in spots.

Striking a fierce pose the actress wore Christian Louboutin ‘Bianca’ pumps and carried a black leather clutch.

Is it me or is she glowing?

I’m loving that rich auburn hair colour.

Jessica Lowndes wore a cute paisley print sweetheart neckline mini dress with gold strappy sandals, but the dress seems very tight on her bust.

Silver and gold together make me cringe, so I don’t like her choice of clutch either.

“Spread” Screening

For most of you Leighton Meester was the belle of the Teen Choice Awards ball on Sunday, but her appearance on the red carpet on Saturday wasn’t as pretty.

For me Leighton got it very wrong when she sported this Christopher Kane Resort 2010 cut-out dress.

I like dress itself with it’s nuclear explosion print – it’s beautiful chaos – but it just doesn’t work for Leighton.  She doesn’t quite have the right look to pull this off.  Her rosy glow as wavy hair feel too cutesy for this dress.

Maybe a slick back pony and smoky eyes would’ve worked better.

Usually you can look to accessories to redeem a look, but her Giuseppe Zanotti heels and Sophia Coppola for Louis Vuitton slim suede clutch do little to save her.

I guess this was just a one off and she shouldn’t be condemned for it because at least she’s daring with her red carpet choices unlike some Amanda Bynes.

I’m surprised we never saw Sharon Stone wearing this Christian Dior Resort 2008 leopard print tiered chiffon dress, such is her love for animal print and Dior, but it’s was the gorgeous Demi Moore who wore it this weekend.

I like how the dress nipped her in at the waist and wasn’t left loose fitting like the runway dress, and that she didn’t over accessorize her look.

Her favourite Gold Bally platforms pumps and a matching clutch complete her look.

Anne Heche continues to hold her own against Demi.

The actress wore a white lace fitted dress with black sash tied to the waist to given her a sexy silhouette.

As usual her hair and make-up are perfection, whilst black Jimmy Choo Hamlet suede pumps and a black clutch complete her look.

Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better? Anna Paquin or Cameron Diaz

Audrina Patridge’s Zuhair Murad dress wasn’t the only re-run of the Teen Choice Awards this weekend. Cameron Diaz’ Alexander McQueen dress was too.

Anna Paquin wore her black Alexander McQueen cheongsam with a mandarin collar, capped sleeves and zip with contrast piping detail, when she made an appearance on the “Late Show With David Letterman” last month.

She styled her hair into a classic updo, and wore Jimmy Choo slingbacks to complete her chic look.

Cameron looked svelte in her super-flattering grey version at the “Teen Choice Awards” which she paired with Pierre Hardy blue heels.

Many of you thought Diaz dressed too old for a teen event. I personally think she was setting a good example to the young actresses she walked the red carpet with – Abigail Breslin and Sofia Vassilieva.

In spite of that I much prefer the black version of this dress so Anna wins for me. I also prefer this dress zipped and not left open like Cameron’s dress.

This dress is available to purchase in black from Browns Fashion for £760/€884.34/$1,250.73. The grey version is available from Neiman Marcus for $1,845.

Runway To “The Beautiful Life” Photo Shoot – Mischa Barton In Versace

Despite her recent troubles, Mischa Barton was in good spirits whilst continuing to film “The Beautiful Life” in New York today and she also shot the promo for the TV show.

The actress was admitted to hospital last month on what was reported to be an “involuntary psychiatric hold”. Ironically she plays a model turned-drug addict in the teen drama.

On set she wore a gold and silver embellished Versace Spring 2009 mini dress with studded ankle boots, whilst interacting with her co-stars as the cameras rolled.

I’m glad to see she’s looking healthy. The lollipop look really didn’t suit her.

Victoria Beckham Takes One Dress To Denver…

…but in two different colours.

I recently joked that Victoria Beckham came to London to pick up her Fall 2009 collection after her ad shoot.

It now feels like I was right because she has worn nothing but her collection since.

Victoria was in Denver this weekend to be a judge on “American Idol”. Unfortunately the feedback from her performance was labeled as “icy and wooden”. Ouch!

Looks like VB’s attempts to be the people’s princess – like Cheryl Cole – is not about to happen any time soon.

On the plus side we got a smile and we got some colour from her this weekend.

The designer wore a luxurious silk purple strapless corset dress from her own collection with Emporio Armani platform heels.

On Sunday Victoria wore same dress is black with the same shoes when she headed back to LA with a severally pulled back high bun.

Her look was accessorized an Alaia cropped cardigan, Hermes Birkin and Culter & Gross sunglasses.

What she gives with one hand, she takes away with the other.

Victoria’s Giral strapless silk dress is available in purchase from the Net-A-Porter US site for $2,625, and the Net-A-Porter International site for £1,750/€2,188.
