Sarah Jessica Parker In Louis Vuitton – 8th Annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball

Sarah Jessica Parker attended the 2011 UNICEF Snowflake Ball which took place at Cipriani 42nd Wall Street in New York City last night.

The actress wore a Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 dress.

Her sea-green and ivory ostrich-feathered and sequin-embroidered confection with a silk satin sleeveless crop top perfectly played up to the snowflake theme of the night.

Some of you may say that once again she’s dressing too young for her age, but I think this look was made for SJP.

It’s fun, fashion-forward, cute and doesn’t require black pumps; instead she teamed her look with Louis Vuitton ‘Merry Go Round’ pumps.

I’m not, however, fond of her darker locks which she showcased at this event.

Bring back the blonde.

Danielle Lineker In Mary Katrantzou – The Halcyon Gallery VIP Opening

Danielle Lineker was joined by her husband Gary Lineker last night as they attended The Halcyon Gallery VIP opening on London’s New Bond Street.

The WAG wore a dress by the winner of the British Fashion Council’s 2011 Emerging Talent of the Year, Mary Katrantzou.

This Fall 2011 Mary Katrantzou jewel tree floral print crepe dress comes in three different versions.

The runway version with sleeves, the version on Lusia via Roma with short sleeves, and Danielle’s long-sleeve commercial version which doesn’t have the nipped-in waist and structured skirt.

Danielle looks great in this dress, I have to say, WAG pre-bias aside.

She opted to wear her hair back in a lose updo, whilst adding specs, neutral nude peep-toes and a Lulu Guinness pewter metallic snakeskin lips clutch to her look.

These accessories aren’t boring and they don’t overwhelm the dress which should always be the main focus with this much-detailed print.

You can purchase the Mary Katrantzou long sleeve jewel tree dress Net-A-Porter US and Net-A-Porter International. The short sleeves version is available from Luisa via Roma.

Who Wore Balmain Better? Zoe Saldana, Joan Smalls or Alessandra Ambrosio

Back in August, Zoe Saldana wore this gorgeous Balmain Resort 2012 dress to the ‘Colombiana’ Miami premiere, but we were on the fence about the additional train.

The dress is so hot and sexy on its own that we wished she’d opted for the lookbook version.

Well, in the space of twenty days, two Victoria’s Secret models have worn this gold-embellished Balmain mini dress as it was presented.

Joan Smalls wore it to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show after-party at Dream Downtown in New York City earlier this month.

She teamed her dress with silver Alexander Wang Fall 2011 accessories including an Adriel clutch and Fabiana metallic leather sandals.

Usually mixing metals sends a shiver down my spine, but there are enough silver elements in her dress to make this combo work.

Alessandra Ambrosio wore the same dress to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show viewing party which took place in New York City last night.

She accessorized with tame nude slingbacks and a tan Valentino clutch.

Joan wins for me.

Her accessories are far more interesting. Zoe lost points for the train and black sandals, whilst Alessandra lost major points for her uninspiring accessories.

Kate Beckinsale In Tadashi Shoji – 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards Nominations

Kate Beckinsale attended a press conference at The London Hotel in West Hollywood today with actor Anthony Mackie to announce the nominations for the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards.

The British actress showed off her long, toned legs wearing a Tadashi Shoji Spring 2012 dress.

Her beautiful white and nude tulle cocktail dress was made considerably shorter. Thankfully she did this by hitching up the dress higher instead of ruin that gorgeous embroidered lace hemline.

Kate didn’t add many accessories, just a pair of nude Brian Atwood pumps and ivory drop earrings.

Glossy waves and glossy lips completed her look.
