2009 Cannes Film Festival – “Precious” Premiere

On a rainy night in Cannes, Mariah Carey showed off her curves in a figure-hugging black Dolce & Gabbana gown with a rosette detail on her hip.

I love this look, and that sexy silhouette it gives her. For Mimi this is a very demure look.

I’m just glad she’s not spilling out of her gown, and that it appears to be the right size.

Her stunning Chopard jewels, and a satin black clutch completed the look.

Paula Patton added some much needed colour to the red carpet, on this cold and dreary night via this outstandingly beautiful Andrew GN Spring 2009 tangerine halter gown.

Her jewels were limited to just a ring, as the gown was decorative enough with the beaded neckline and jeweled waist band.

I’m glad she wore her hair back, and I love her neutral make-up.

Elizabeth Banks has had an outstanding week, with her Armani Privé and Andrew GN gowns.

Last night she wore a ice lamé column Zac Posen gown with white bow decorated heels.

Unfortunately for her the gown had a malfunction, with the zip coming apart at the back, which is a huge shame considering her fabulous week.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – “Bright Star” Premiere

I was quietly hoping Eva Longoria would wow me at Cannes Film Festival, and she has.

The Desperate Housewives star is at the film festival with the L’Oreal team, but she stands out amongst everyone else wearing an ice blue Atelier Versace Spring 2009 gown.

The gown has embroidered studded details, and a stunning shimmering train.

As Just Me said earlier, what a week for Haute Couture.

This is a big gown for petite actress, but she carries it off very well.

She wore her gown with stunning jewels, and dove grey YSL Trib Two’s.

You may remember in her Harper’s Bazaar Singapore interview that she said she owned them in every colour.

I kinda feel sorry for Abbie Cornish.

This was her movie premiere, her night to shine, but she got upstaged by Eva Longoria.

Her Fall 2009 gown, by Australian designer Toni Maticevski isn’t too bad, I love the colour, and it’s quite dramatic with the ruffles, tiers and pleats.

Good choice.

Actress Gabrielle Lazure arrived wearing a very sophisticated Moschino Fall 2009 dress.

This dress is a 2 in one piece.

Underneath it’s a simple simple crepe dress with a tie, but the magic happens with the organza overlay, as it has a red floral print.

Juliette Binoche graced the red carpet wearing a deep purple taffeta strapless Lanvin gown.

I love details on the bodice, and that she kept her décolletage bare, but I’m not so crazy about the floral hair accessory.

I just want to know why?

Why not invite Camilla Belle, Freida Pinto?

Why Phoebe Price?

She’s not a serious actress and she’s definitely not a L’Oreal girl, so I need to know why she is there.

The only thing I can relate to here, is her Mont Charles clutch.

Eurovision Song Contest Moscow 2009 Press Conference & Semi Finals


For one night only Dita von Teese will be German.

The Eurovision Song Contest is this Saturday, and Dita has teaming up with the German entrant, therefore guaranteeing a HUGE audience for the show, and almost guaranteeing a win for the German’s.

The sexy burlesque star will appear on stage alongside Alex Christensen and Oscar Loya to play the part of Miss Kiss Kiss Bang in their performance.

She’ll be wearing a teeny tiny waist reducing corset, with decorative silver nipple covers, and an Elie Saab sequined jacket, but at today’s press conference for the show, the star was fully clothed.

She was wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2009 Couture skirt suit, consisting of a black pencil skirt, and an off-the-shoulder lace jacket, with a white detail though-out, which gives the jacket it’s structure.

Louboutin’s heels and black bag complete the look.

Liebe Dita, Liebe.

Russian model Natalia Vodianova, hosted of the semi-finals of the Eurovision Song Contest, as the show takes place in her native country.

She was papped looking heavenly wearing a lilac Givenchy Spring 2009 Couture gown.

The gown has a feathered neckline, which is also adorned with chains.

I haven’t watch the Eurovision in about 10 years, but these two woman will tempt me to watch for the fashion alone.

Social Events Of The Week

“Night At The Museum: Battle Of The Smithsonian” Washington Premiere

Amy Adams wore a RM by Roland Mouret Fall 2009 gown, for her premiere.

I love the pin-tuck detailing, and the pale lilac colour against her porcelain skin, but her hair isn’t glowing like it normally does.

The Caudwell Children Butterfly Ball, London

Elizabeth Hurley wore a silk Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2009 pink strapless gown, which was gathered above the waist with a circular clasp.

She kept her jewelery to a minimum, with a silver bracelet which matched her VBH envelope clutch.

“Seven Days” Tokyo Stage Greeting, Japan

It’s just not fair that Yunjin Kim looks so flawless with such minimal make-up.

The Lost actress opted for a black Gucci Spring 2009 asymmetrical dress, which like Liz’ gown, was gathered at the waist with a gold clasp.

Gucci Iman metallic T-strap sandals from the Fall 2009 collection, complete the look.

46664 & The Nelson Mandela Foundation Launches “Mandela Day”, LA

Marisa Tomei never fails to pull out all the stops on the red carpet, but this outfit doesn’t completely work for me. I love how she’s working the 80s shoulder pads in her blazer, but I’m not so crazy about the pants.

The masculine suit is made demure by a tidy up-do, and a sheer blouse.

“Late Show with David Letterman”, New York

Teri Hatcher opted for a classic, figure-hugging Moschino Cheap and Chic black strapless crepe dress with microdots.

This is a classic case of making a big statement with a simple LBD.

Chanel Cruise 2010



Karl Lagerfeld presented his Chanel Cruise 2010 collection in romantic Venice, with the runway’s back drop being the sunset, beach, and a cool light breeze, how could you not immediately fall in love with this collection?

We’ve had Paris-Londres, Paris-Moscou and now Paris-Venice.

The collection is said be inspired by Coco Chanel’s visits to Venice, where she promoted her beach pajamas. The collection was full of floaty chiffon dress, boucle jackets with fringed edges, nautical stripes, and rich reds.

I haven’t been overwhelmed by Karl’s collections for a while, with the mostly black and white pieces, but I was pleasantly surprised that I really liked this.

The models bob-style hairdo, and makeup reminded me of flapper girls. The mood of the collection makes me want to book my summer holiday now.

Rinko Kikuchi has grown out her bowl-style hair cut, into a very chic bob.

The actress wore a white Chanel Spring 2009 Couture lace dress, with the two tone runway ankle strap heels, and a black clutch.

I didn’t think much of this floaty chiffon ivory and black trimmed Chanel Pre-Fall 2009 dress, until I saw it on Anna Mouglalis.

Now I’m in love with it, it’s so romantic.

"Terminator Salvation" LA Premiere

Bryce Dallas Howard was one of those people you see on the red carpet, but didn’t pay much attention to.

That dramatically changed at the premiere of Terminator Salvation last night.

The red hair actress sure did make an impact, wearing a futuristic Marios Schwab Fall 2009 mini dress.

The slant neck dress, looks like it has beams of multi-coloured lights clashing over her dress. The dress also has a tulle overlay which is covered in clear sequins.

The look was completed with a matching beaded clutch, and Christian Louboutin peep-toes.

The Loubie’s kinda let the look down, but this is a brave choice, and I really like it.

Actress Moon Bloodgood also sparkled in her strapless Reem Acra Couture gown.

I love the details such as the sequins, the red belt, but the sheer pieces of the skirt, expose what’s underneath, and they look like spanx.

2009 Classical Brit Awards

Myleene Klass hosted the Classical Brit Awards, but she made sure she was center of attention on the red carpet.

The Singer and TV presenter graced the red carpet looking like an elegant swan, wearing a white strapless Joe Challita gown, with a black waist belt.

I love the sweetheart neckline, and the lace ruffled skirt and train.

Her only piece of bling, was her gold Erickson Beamon cuff.

Myleene later changed into another strapless gown. This time it was a pillar box red ruffled Jasper Conran gown, with a rise and fall hem.

The skirt of the gown showed off her nude Christian Louboutin heels.

Cute, but I much prefer the first gown.

Classical singer Katherine Jenkins arrived at this event wearing a lilac J Mendel gown, with a very interesting gathered neckline.

For some reason I feel more drawn to her fan shaped clutch, than her gown.

Katherine changed into a pink embellished gown, for her performance with tenor Placido Domingo.

The pink is cute, but I really have huge disliking for gowns with nude illusions. It evokes images of ice-skaters.
