NY Times Style Magazine’s Pre-Golden Globe Awards Party

Last night Zoe Saldana, Diane Kruger, Anna Kendrick and Julianne Moore all attended this party in the same looks from the Critic’s Choice Awards, so here is a look at what the rest of the guest wore.

I usually don’t go gaga over Chloe Sevigny, but I love her in this Christian Dior Spring 2010 chiffon print dress with flutter sleeves.

Sometimes I think Chloe tries a little too hard to be cool all the time, so I love is that she doesn’t over accesorize the look nor wear a leather jacket with it.

With her thick black tights and strappy peep-toe sandals Sofia Coppola wore a Marc Jacobs tulle rainbow paillette dress from the Resort 2010 collection.

The black tulle overlay dress which we’ve seen on Fergie at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards , is embellished with colorful sequins.

Amber Heard was one of my favourites at this event.

The gorgeous blonde actress wore an Alexander McQueen mini dress from the Fall 2009 collection, which is instantly recognisable by the unique print.

Black peep-toes and a white clutch complete the look.

As usual there’s no daylight between Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise.

Back up buddy so we can get a better look at Katie’s knitted black Lyell dress which are paired with Givenchy ankle boots.

Katie seems to have a thing for wearing a dress which exposes her bra.

2010 Critic’s Choice Awards

Best Dressed Award
Diane Kruger has been experimenting with shorter hemlines and edgier pieces, but last night she opted for ethereal elegance as she glided down the red carpet wearing an asymmetrical Donna Karan Spring 2010 gown.

Look as the way she’s working the hell out of this gown.

That backward S shape she’s making with her body is fully showing off the magnificent of this gown.

I knew she was only warming up at previous events.

Best Mini Award
Zoe Saldana has been on fire since the start of her “Star Trek” promo tour back in April last year, and that flame is still burning ever so brightly.

I was in a three-way split as to who to give the Best Dressed to – Diane, Zoe or Marion.

Diane got the vote, but Zoe was a very close second.

The “Avatar” actress wore a delightful Jason Wu Spring 2010 ivory mini draped foil dress with puffy sleeves, a bubble hem skirt and a black sash tied to the waist.

Her look was paired with Christian Louboutin white peep-toes with a black and yellow trim and animal print velvet bow which are oh so very cute.

Ding Ding Ding Jackpot Award
Dior + Marion Cotillard = Red Carpet Perfection.

This is the moment I have been waiting for since it was the ladies of the movie “Nine” started their promotional tour.

The stunning French actress wowed in a Christian Dior Spring 2010 two tone bustier gown, with gold embellishments fanning out over the skirt.

I love the pink clutch, but not so crazy about those necklaces.

Keeping It Simple Award
Abbie Cornish wore an Elie Saab Spring 2010 black sheath dress with structured shoulders paired with Bally criss cross heels.

I would’ve loved to have seen Abbie inject a bit of colour into this look via the clutch or shoes, but all in all I don’t hate this look

I’m however slightly disappointed that the subtle details of the dress are totally lost on the red carpet.

Bling Award
Emily Blunt loves to shine on the red carpet.  We often we see her in heavily embellished looks.

On this occasion she wore a Georges Chakra Fall 2009 Couture sequined dress, with fish-scale embroidery detail around the hem of the skirt.

I think this dress would’ve worked better for Emily had it been strapless, as I’m not so crazy about sheer yokes.

I’m crazy about her Diego Dolcini strappy heels though.

Most Disappointing Award
As much as we love Julianne Moore,  I just couldn’t fall in love with this red Lanvin Spring 2010 dress on her.

On the runway the dress is très magnifique, but the details fall flat off the runway therefore making lose interest in the dress.

Slowing Becoming A Red Carpet Favourite Award
Anna Kendrick walked the red carpet wearing an Elie Saab black knit gown.

Again you can barely make out the lace details on the skirt of the gown.

My only problem with this gown is the double straps, because it looks like she’s wearing a strappy vest top under her gown.

On The Fence Award
Carey Mulligan’s certainly makes this Marni black taffeta waterfall draped black gown work for her and her unique style.

The Marni accessories are the only thing stopping me from disliking this look.

It appears she loves the same designers as Anna Wintour  – Prada, Thakoon and Marni.

Ravishing In Red Award
No matter what Heather Graham wears always she injects a LOT of sexy appeal into her look.

Her asymmetrical red dress may look a lot plain, but the gold clutch and sultry pose make the overall look more appealing.

Best Shoes Award
I love the black fringe corseted Alberta Ferretti dress Sandra Bullock wore this event, but I think it fails to flatter her.

Her black satin Casadei platform heels are to-die-for.

Precious Award
Gabourey Sidibe walked the red carpet wearing a black satin cocktail Tadashi Shoji dress with a nude and black embroidered cap-sleeve bodice.

She completed the look with black sandals and a black satin shawl.

Still Got IT Award
I have goosebumps on my goosebumps marveling at how A-Friggin-Mazing Susan Sarandon looked wearing a sexy Dolce & Gabbana LBD.

It’s a style we’ve seen numerous of times on the red carpet, but that takes nothing away from how stunning Susan looks.

After her break up with Tim Robbins something tells me this was a statement making dress.

Yet Another LBD Award
After Ashley Greene gave us our first red carpet look at the J.Mendel Pre-Fall 2010 collection this week, Claire Danes gave us a second look.

She presented alongside Zachary Quinto wearing a J.Mendel Pre-Fall 2010 black dress with a draped shoulder detail.

I like that she broke up the black by adding a bronze pair of peep-toe heels.

Social Events Of The Week

Evax Campaign Launch, Madrid

Monica Cruz wore a Roberto Cavalli eyelet embellished dress from the Fall 2009 collection.

We’re unsure as to whether Monz is wearing a longer length dress, or that it just appears longer in comparison to the legging model.

I like the boots as it’s in keeping with the rock chic-esque feel of the dress.

‘Sherlock Holmes’ Paris Photocall

My current girl crush Rachel McAdams is wearing a Alberta Ferretti Fall 2009 grey wool dress with jewel encrusted shoulders.

After Rachel fabulous week, I’m sad to say I’m bit bored by this.

She’s wearing a shorter length than seen on the catwalk, which I’m glad of but it feels like something is missing.

Great choice of suede Brian Atwood “Marlo” pumps.

“Creation” New York Photocall

Jennifer Connelly wore this Stella McCartney Spring 2010 suit which I think looks really chic and sophisticated.

I like the silk skirt which adds to the femininity of the ruffled front of the jacket.

I just wish that it wasn’t so much of a block colour.

“A Single Man” Cocktail Party, LA

Selma Blair was spotted arriving at this party in a Roland Mouret Pre-Fall 2008 dress.

Again, I just can’t get over excited about the black.

Her hair also looks a bit disheveled.

Paloma Picasso Tiffany & Co, Australia

Maria Sharapova looks beautiful in this slate grey v-neck Max Azria Spring 2010 dress. I really like the colour against her blonde hair.

Great choice of gladiator-style shoe as well.

The only thing I would say is that her hair could have been tidied up a bit.

Julianne Moore we love you!

She never fails to give us goosebumps and everything here is spot on, from her Lanvin two-tone bustier dress to those gorgeous t-bar shoes.

What a great hairstyle too.

Victoria’s Secret Beauty Launches Love Rocks Fragrance Collection, New York

Another day, another Taylor Momsen outfit, another desperate attempt to be alternative *yawns*.

The colour of this dress completely washes her out

And don’t get me started on the lace up cuff and the raccoon make-up which has made a comeback.

Giuseppe Zanotti biker boots complete the look.

“24” Season 8 Premiere

Mary Lynn Rajskub stood out on this red carpet at the “24” Season 8 Premiere in LA.

The talented actress shimmered wearing a Pamella Roland Fall 2009 gold degrade embroidered Faberge dress.

Gold sandals and a gold clutch completed the look.

Surprisingly the gold on gold combo doesn’t feel too OTT.  I think that’s because of her brunette locks.

Katee Sackhoff looked sexy wearing a David Meister’s red and black satin one shoulder cocktail dress with beaded accent at the waist.

Black patent pumps and a black clutch complete the look.

Annie Wersching looks cute enough in her black silk playsuit, but the gold shimmer on her tights really puts me off loving this look.

“The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry” Press Conference

The stars of the new drama “The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry” turned out in full force for a press conference in South Korea.

Park Jin-hee wore a Diane Von Furstenberg Josun strapless mini dress from the Resort 2010 collection.

This dress is just gorgeous, but I’m just not sure about the tights and shoes.

I would’ve liked to have see this dress worn with something other than a black shoe, which I think seems to dull down the colours of the dress.

I am in lust. I love everything about this look and it’s such an amazing colour against her skin tone.

I’m really glad that this look has been worn with the same shoes as on the runway.

Yesterday Andrew was wishing he would see this Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010 look at the Golden Globes.

He may not get his wish as Uhm Ji Won wore it to this press conference.

Wang Bit Na wore a Fendi bustier jumpsuit with peep toe Christian Louboutin ankle boots.

At first I couldn’t make up my mind about the boots, but I quite like them as they complement her edgy look.

Love the accessories as well, especially the necklace.

I’m glad to see this jumpsuit styled well.

The drama will premiere on January 20.

Runway To The Pix Morning Show – Katharine McPhee In 3.1 Phillip Lim

Katharine McPhee is in full on promo mode as she continues to promote her new album “Unbroken”.

This week she was at “The Pix Morning Show” in New York where she performed her new single “Keep Drivin'”.

Her look is constantly changing.

She went from a very sophisticated Marchesa look on Conan O’Brien’s late night show, to a more laid back look for this morning show.

Her ensemble included ankle boots, patterned tights, a blue mini skirt and a 3.1 Phillip Lim ‘OK’ hand printed tee.

The look has a weird mish-mash of colours that surprisingly doesn’t offend me.

I was hoping stars would jump off the ankle boot trend in 2010, but I guess it’s here to stay for a while.

The stylish statement making tee was one of the many hand printed tees in the 3.1 Phillip Lim Resort 2010 collection.

This tee is available to purchase from Browns Fashion and Matches Fashion.com.

The 9th Annual Awards Season Diamond Fashion Show Preview

Last year we saw Demi Moore wearing this Chanel Spring 2010 cute mini tulle dress on the set of her Harper’s Bazaar shoot, but it’s Rachel Bilson who’s brought it to the red carpet.

The actress looks cute enough wearing this baby-doll dress, but both the hair and make-up look the exact the same as the daily candids of her collecting her dry cleaning and shopping around Hollywood.

Shout if you think this is a BDOTW contender, because I think there’s been far better candidates.

Olivia Wilde wore an Alberta Ferretti Spring 2010 dress which had been lengthen from the runway.

I think – know – she should could have pulled of the shorter version with her gorgeous legs, so part of me feels tad disappointed.

I love the dress itself with the contrasting colours and textures.

It’s very event appropriate.

Her look was completed wearing a pair of Jimmy Choo Nova sandals from the 24/7 collection and a matching snake-skin clutch.

Ashley Greene – I believe – is the first celeb to wear a Pre-Fall 2010 look on the red carpet, which only prove how much being taken seriously in the fashion world.

The Twilight star wore a pale lemon J.Mendel Pre-Fall 2010 dress with a sheer yoke, pleated bodice and a draped detail cascading from the waist.

I love the dress and the colour is divine on her, but I really dislike the matchy matchy colour of the clutch and earrings.

Champagne peep-toes complete the look.

I adore Jenna Dewan’s Paule Ka Spring 2009 sweetheart strapless dress with blush brush stroke details.

I love the volume on the runway picture, which also shows us that the dress has a solid black back panel.

The matchy matchy nature of her heels works better for me than it did on Ashley.

Lisa Edelstein pops up every now and then on the red carpet, and every now and then I say wow.

This is one of those wow moments.

Her Emilio Pucci Resort 2010 dress is exquisite.

The embellished details around the empire-waist stop it from looking very “St Tropez”.

Had BDOTW not been so packed should would’ve been in contention.  I might try to squeeze her in.

Lake Bell flashes a rare smile at this event. Maybe she was promised some diamonds *winks*

The gorgeous actress who still looks stunning with minimal make-up arrived wearing a black and white strapless Lyn Devon Fall 2009 belted dress.

Black patent pumps and a white clutch completed the look.

As cute as Dianna Agron looks in her peachy dress. It’s a bit to Disney for my taste.

Her gold criss cross heels are from Bally.
