Runway To Oprah – The Ladies Of “Nine”

The cast of “Nine” were on Oprah recently to promote the musical which will be released after Christmas.

Each actress looked beautiful.

Kate Hudson wore a stunning L’Wren Scott fitted black dress with a pearl necklace.

She was very coy talking about A-Rod when questioned by Oprah.

On Wednesday reported Hudson and A-Rod split a few weeks ago so that was probably why.

Marion Cotillard wore a leopard print Isabel Marant Fall 2009 dress, which has been worn by Eva Herzigova and Shakira.

Penelope Cruz wore a cute white tweed dress with tights.

Nicole Kidman was the one who surprisingly opted for the brightest colour wearing a L’Wren Scott fuchsia headmistress dress we’ve seen in black and white and teal.

Of all these looks, I’m totally in love with Marion.  Penelope’s look is my least favourite as she added tights to such a summery look.

Elle Style Awards Shanghai

Zhou Xun wears a black and gold embroidered Chanel Resort 2010 dress with a matching cardigan we’ve seen on Isabel Lucas and Anna Mouglalis.

The actress manages to make the cardigan work as she paired her look with Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony multi buckle wedge booties.

Models Philip Huang and Du Juan grace the red carpet with their beautiful presence.

He looked dapper in a black suit with very shiny shoes, whilst Du looked beautiful wearing a Gucci Fall 2009 black one-sleeve dress which has 3 textures including a furry skirt.

Her look was paired with Christian Louboutin Maggie heels which are currently reduced on Matches Fashion.

Model Mo Wandan opted for the uber sexy Versace Fall 2009 plunging gown we’ve seen on Blake Lively.

Blake wore the racy red colour, whereas Mo has opted for a subtle navy colour which is still sexy.

I love those fish scale-style paillettes which decorate this gown.

I expected to see more of these fun Marilyn Monroe print Dolce & Gabbana looks on the red carpet, but they have mostly been confined to editorials and one outing on Molly Sims at the CDFA Awards.

Model Tong Chenjie wore one of those Monroe Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 dresses to this event.

I love the puffy sleeves, but I do wish she’d worn a similar necklace to the runway.

Rapper Eve was the first to wear Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 Whip It LA premiere.

I like it on Eve, but I’m not particularly crazy about the length of the skirt on  Huang Yi.

She should’ve shortened it.

Chinese Director, Actress, Author and Writer Xy Jinglei wore this sophisticated Chanel Resort 2010 strapless dress with a draped detail on the hips.

She wore black leather gloves with her look, and a bejeweled necklace similar to the one presented on the runway.

I prefer the styling on the runway, as I really don’t like Xy’s shoes.

Actress Tong Yao opted for a fun Gucci Fall 2009 blue and black dotted dress.

I love the vibrant blue, the light denier of her tights and the Fendi clutch she shows off so proudly.

Model Li Ai wears the most second most popular Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2009 gown to grace Asian red carpet events.

Like I say every time I see this dress on the red carpet, this is a waldrobe malfunction waiting to happen.

How can you stay supported in this dress?

Runway To The Misanthrope Play – Keira Knightley In Chanel Couture

It’s been a while since we last saw Keira Knightley on the red carpet, but nothing appears to have changed because she still loves Chanel.

At “The Misanthrope” play after party in London last week she wore a Chanel Fall 2009 Couture black sequin dress with a rosette detail, paired with tights and Chanel pearl accented heels.

Like most others excluding Kate Hudson, Keira opted out of the train, or mullet as some of you have coined this look.

I prefer this modification on this occasion, but I think we will have to access this on a case by case bases as I think it worked in Kate’s favour last week.

Another chic look from the pouty Keira

Who Wore Lipsy Better? Alexandra Burke or Rachel Adedeji

Last year’s X Factor winner Alexandra Burke first wore this Lipsy fringe detail dress to “Capital FM’s Jingle Bell Ball” in London on 6th December.

I must say I love her hair. The blunt fringe really suits this look.

And then she ruins it with the ankle boots *sigh*.

This dress gives Alexandra a really nice shape but I wish she’d worn something a bit more festive.

X Factor contender Rachel Adedji then wore this dress last week to “Capital Rocks” in London.

Where to start? Those boots? If you insist on wearing boots on the red carpet at least wear some that fit.

Rachel’s boots are baggy around her legs, which makes this look sloppy and badly put together.

I’m not crazy about the earrings either and in fact think that both girls are lacking some much needed accessories.

Alexandra wins this round for me, although I’m not blown away by either.

This dress is available to buy from ASOS US and

Best Dressed Of The Week – Blake Lively In Dolce & Gabbana And Kelly Reilly In Alberta Ferretti

Despite comments like “Boobs or legs. Pick one Blake”. The Gossip Girl actress still won the Best Dressed poll this week.

Like you we were floored by Blake who upstaged Rachel McAdams at her “Sherlock Holmes” New York premiere.

Blake’s hair, make-up and my oh my that barely there Dolce & Gabbana dress was just spectacular.

I agree with majority who said “if I had a body like hers, I’d probably want to show it off too.”

I fell in love with British actress Kelly Reilly this week.

She was stunning wearing a peach silk chiffon Alberta Ferretti embroidered gown.

Even the rain couldn’t dampen her spirit. She still looked amazing wearing my favourite gown from Alberta Ferretti’s Spring 2010 collection.

Designer Of The Week – Karl Lagerfeld For Chanel

Diane Kruger, Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson, Demi Moore and Sarah Jessica Parker all wore Chanel creations this week.

Diane Kruger continued her love affair with this label. SJP picked a cute look for a TV appearance whilst Demi Moore was dressed in a gorgeous soft nude dress for a shoot with Harper’s Bazaar.

Kate Hudson and Penelope Cruz wore Chanel Couture to the “Nine” New York premiere.

Kate wore a Fall 2009 Couture gown, whilst Pen wore red satin dress Chanel 1989 Haute Couture gown which was chosen for her by Karl Lagerfeld from the Chanel Conservatoire.

What a lucky lady, she looks divine in red. My favourite Chanel look of the week.

The Chanel Fall 2009 Couture collection was full of dresses with trains, whereas the Chanel Spring 2010 collection was full of gorgeous textures like lace and sheer layers.

Was anyone else shocked that none of the ladies opted for the Spring 2010 Chanel clogs?
