Social Events Of The Week

“Precious” New York Premiere

I wish Paula Patton has opted for the metallic version of this Altuzarra Fall 2009 dress. It has more of a wow factor.

Her winklepickers were also a very bad choice.

Never again will I defend Mariah Carey in the ‘boobie’ debate.

Mariah has had some bad looks, but this has to be the WORST.

She look so incredibly tacky and has obviously been inspired by Amanda Bynes because she only wears LBDs lately.

The only thing that deserves a mention are her Jimmy Choo Billie Lizard-Print sandals

2009 Clinton Global Initiative Dinner, New York

Looking like butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth Naomi Campbell look so sweet wearing a Issa Spring 2010 asymmetrical black and white print dress.

Naomi walked for the Issa Spring 2010 show, so she was obviously very taken with this adorable dress.

2009 VH1 Hip Hop Honors, New York

Eve walked this red carpet sporting the very same hairstyle as Rihanna.

She wore fingerless black leather gloves to go with her Helmut Lang Resort 2010 black leather and bondage jersey dress.

I love everything about the look excluding the heels.

Why wear such an interesting sexy dress, if you’re going to pair it with office heels?

“Good Hair” LA Premiere

For this event Eve wore a chocolate brown Charlotte Ronson Deco beading pleated dress.

I love the neckline, her pink lips and the fact that she didn’t wear the runway belt.

The dress is better off without it.

Nia Long sparkled wearing a silver batwing plunging blouse paired with champagne mini shorts.

Her make up flawless and show is her cute bob.

Montblanc Paris Flagship Boutique Launch

Eva Green gives me that old Hollywood glamour that I never tire of.

She wore an aqua Alberta Ferretti gown with draped detailing to accentuate the waist.

Such an elegant look from one we expect to always look so dramatic and gothic.

I love her tousled updo.

Brian Reyes Appearance At Neiman Marcus, LA

Rachel Bilson supported her long time friend Brian Reyes when he made an appearance at Neiman Marcus.

She kept her look very casual wearing in denim cut-offs, a black blazer, and white tank.

Her accessories were more colourful as she carried a scarlet red Jimmy Choo Blythe Tote, and the same leather boots we have seen on Sienna Miller.

“Couples Retreat” Australian Premiere

This is quite an interesting look for Kristen Bell.

We’re so used to seeing her in unstructured laid back looks, but this time she opted for a sleek Preen Peplette technical crepe dress paired with Jimmy Choo heels.

Billboard’s 4th Annual Women In Music

Its so nice to see Beyonce Knowles wearing something so soft and feminine.

The singer’s hair was super straight as she walked the red carpet wearing a jade pleated Malandrino Resort 2010 dress with draped skirt and ruffled shoulders, paired with ivory Sergio Rossi leather heels.

When she doesn’t appear to be trying to hard to make style statements she really look fabulous.

This was the perfect choice to pick up her Women of the Year Award.

Lady GaGa Style found the blue gown the singer wore which was designed by Manchester Metropolitan University graduate Holly Russell.

The blue gown has beetle wings and black synthetic hair wefts woven into the shoulders and neckline.

Keeping the look true to the runway, Lady GaGa didn’t line the sheer gown and she didn’t surprisingly wear runway magpie head wear.

GaGa was there to pick up her Rising Star Award.

When I first saw this look on Michelle Williams it immediately reminded me of the Chanel Pre-Fall 2009 LBD with a gold fanned statement necklace.

Her LBD and gold necklace was paired with very unimpressive heels.

Runway To “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” – Megan Fox In Martin Grant

Megan Fox appeared on The Jimmy Fallon Show recently looking stunning wearing a strapless Martin Grant Fall 2009 raspberry twill tiered bustier dress with a pleated skirt, paired with gold peep-toe heels.

You may remember we first saw this dress on Lesile Mann at the “Funny People” LA Premiere.

The actress was there to promote her movie “Jennifer’s Body” and opened up about being neurotic about certain things. For example, Fox hates to touch dry paper, like newspaper and scripts, and has to lick her fingers before touching each page. (are you rolling your eyes like I am?)

The actress continued on, admitting that as a teenager she once stole Mary Kate and Ashley cosmetics from a Wal-Mart and had to wrap presents for poor children as a punishment.

Front Row @ Paris Fashion Week

Karl Lagerfeld

This is one of my favourite look of Paris Fashion Week, even if Katy Perry is slightly too busty for this Karl Lagerfeld Fall 2009 dress.

I love the structure, the dark taupe colour and the way the dress falls back over her shoulders.

Her look was paired with ankle booties and a Karl Lagerfeld Spring 2009 bag, which has the designers face printed on the front.

Rihanna surprisingly opted for a subtle look wearing all black.

Her look was paired with leather gloves and Christian Louboutin lace pumps.

Lanvin

Janet Jackson looked very sophisticated wearing a black Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 dress with a ruffled detail on one shoulder.

Janet is officially the Sophia Bush of Fashion Week.

Hussein Chalayan

This is my favourite look from Rihanna so far at Paris Fashion Week.

This grey Hussein Chalayan Fall 2009 has an edge without going over the top, even with those thigh-high boots.

I hope she wears more from this designer in the future.

Givenchy

Many of you will be spitting fire that Rihanna is wearing Givenchy Couture, but at least she didn’t make it look comical.

Her black velvet Couture Fall 2009 jacket was paired with a simple LBD and black ankle boots.

Leigh Lezark opted for a Givenchy Resort 2010 look which included black pants, paired with a studded silk cowl-neck sleeveless top and a studded leather vest.

She really did pick the best look to suit her rock and roll style.

Sonia Rykiel

I’ve always loved this Sonia Rykiel Fall 2009 sparkling dress, and I’m so glad to see how cute yet sexy it looks on Katy Perry.

She wore her dress with a pair of Christian Louboutin pigalle’s.

Maison Martin Margiela

Michael Jackson gave us the glove, now Rihanna is trying to give us the Long sleeved glove.

I don’t think her Maison Martin Margiela white long sleeved glove will have the same impact, but she makes it work for what it is.

The disappointing thing was that her dress was so sheer, you could see her nipple ring and thong in some pictures.

Jean Paul Gaultier

Oh Dita von Teese.

Perfection, poise, sophistication and class just oozes from your every pore.

From the top of your head, to the tips of your bustier right down to your Louboutin’s.  You’re probably the only one really deserving to be front row at Paris Fashion Week.

Only you can bring the magic to this Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 Couture dress like no one else could.

J’Adore Dita.  J’Adore.

Rihanna opted for a criss cross  jacket which showed off her satin bra.

Leather pants and Christian Louboutin Ni toi ni moi blue suede boots completed this crazy look.

Katy Perry was more demure wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 black halter dress paired with a pigalle’s and a Chanel quilted bag.

Vivienne Westwood

Rihanna seems to not like wearing much clothes these days.

Here she opted for a Vivienne Westwood Fall 2009 black oversized blazer, which covered her bra and panties.

Thigh-high tan boot completed this “I got dress in a hurry” look.

Jessica Stroup being at Paris Fashion Week is exciting in that it shows she has a lot of fashion potential.

But like Blake Lively before her, she totally wrecks her opportunity by looking a complete mess in the front row.

Her Vivienne Westwood red strapless dress is horribly creased and terribly ill-fitting, plus her Brian Atwood Lola Suede pumps don’t work with her dress.

I hope she has time to redeem herself before she flies back to the US.

Christian Dior

Dita von Teese looks HAWT wearing a Christian Dior leather skirt suit.

If it looks very familiar, that’s because she wore a black wool version to the Wonderbra Party Edition Launch in London recently.

She teams her dress with grey metallic heels and a Christian Dior Resort 2010 leopard print bag.

Carine Roitfeld finally wore something besides her YSL vintage dress and Alaia heels for a nice change.

This time she opted for an Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2009 grey suit, paired with a grey sweater.

I love the positioning of the arm holes on this jacket.

Wang Lei opted for a simple Dior Pre-Fall 2009 grey dress with a neck tie, which is very similar to the grey skirt suit which was presented on the runway.

Rihanna tries to do Dita, but comes off looking quite ridiculous.

She also carried a bag from the Christian Dior Resort 2010 collection, and paired her dress with Christian Louboutin Studded Pigalle Pumps.

This is the worst look of the week.

Runway To X Factor Morocco Auditions – Cheryl Cole In Matthew Williamson

Whilst Dannii Minogue was picking her top 3 finalist in Dubai, Cheryl Cole was doing the same in Morocco.

I was so disappointed when Cheryl put Joe through to her top 3, when Duane cleary had the better voice.

But I wasn’t disappointed in what she wore.

With the exotic Marrakesh backdrop Cheryl looked gorgeous wearing a chestnut Matthew Williamson Resort 2010 Egyptian-style gown with a beaded bodice.

With the live finals starting this Saturday, I can’t wait to see what Dannii and Cheryl will wear for the next 12 weeks.

Runway To X Factor Dubai Auditions – Kylie Minogue In Emanuel Ungaro & Danni Minogue In J’Aton Couture

The X Factor judges took the final 24 contests on various locations for their final auditions.

Dannii Minogue took her 6 to Dubai, where she introduced her sister Kylie as the second judge.

Kylie wore a cute mini green one-shouldered Emanuel Ungaro Spring 2009 dress.

Thanks to everyone who identified Dannii’s stunning multi-coloured gown as J’Aton Couture. I need to brush up on my Australian designers.

It was quite easily my favourite look of that show.

Kylie looked amazing and took in the screams of delight from girls who were lucky enough to meet her.

Even Dannii seem in total awe of her sister. It was such a cute moment.
