Who Wore Lanvin Better? Charlize Theron or Jenna Elfman

Before yesterday I hadn’t even heard of Jenna Elfman, so her wearing the same Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 dress as Charlize Theron to the “CBS, CW And Showtime All-Star Party” has definitely put her on the map, which was probably the intention.

Jenna wore her gold metallic dress with black peep-toes and without the runway belt.

Charlize had worn the dress months earlier to the “The Burning Plain” Paris premiere at the Publicis Champs Elysees with black pumps.

If you look at the necklines you will see that the knotted detail appears on opposite shoulders.

This may explain why there is so much material on front of Jenna’s dress – she’s worn it the dress back to front, or maybe it’s a Bebe knock-off.

I don’t think you need to wonder. Charlize wins this for me.

Katherine Heigl Wearing Naeem Khan To “The Ugly Truth” London Premiere

When I saw Katherine Heigl walk the red carpet in London tonight for “The Ugly Truth” premiere, I had to break my no blogging after 7pm rule as I’m a sucker for anything that sparkles.

Katherine blew me away wearing a green Naeem Khan Resort 2010 emerald green paillette covered draped one-shoulder sheath dress with belt tied around her waist.

The colour is outstanding against her now red hair. I really love green worn by red heads. It’s a beautiful combination – think Isla Fisher at the 2007 Oscars and Amy Adams at the 2008 Oscars.

Her hair was styled into a updo and her make-up was light. It’s a really muggy night in London, so I get the dewy glow.

Her dress was paired with silver sandals, a gold cuff and the hunky Gerard Butler on her arm.

What a lucky girl.

Picking a Best Dressed celeb this week is going to be very difficult.

Social Events Of The Week

“Mad Men” – Season 3 Premiere

January Jones was one of the first celebs to wear Andrew GN on the red carpet during awards season earlier this year, and she has stayed loyal to the designer wearing his silk navy blue Fall 2009 dress to this red carpet event.

I love that she belted the dress to give it more shape, whilst her simple black patent Brian Atwood ‘Maniacs’ pumps, and wavy blonde locks complete this sophisticated look.

You may recognise the dress to be similar to the dress Kerry Washington wore on the Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien back in June with the diamond shapes cut into the neckline which are trimmed with leather.

Christina Hendricks looked radiant as she opted for another dress by Catherine Malandrino.

This time she wore a black asymmetrical long sleeve Malandrino Fall 2009 dress with bird embroidery detail on the bodice.  This was daring choice, but she totally made it work by keeping accessories to a minimum.

“Live! with Regis and Kelly”, New York

Leslie Mann always makes an impact on the red carpet.

When she arrived for her appearance on “Live With Regis And Kelly'” in New York, she is wearing a black diamond organza sleeveless blouse, a chiffon flutter skirt and a patent leather bow belt from the Erin Fetherston Fall 2009 collection.

This is such a cute girlie look.

Bagatelle Party, Paris

Oh to be Dita von Teese.

The star is wearing one of the day dresses from Elie Saab’s Fall 2009 collection in dove grey, which she also owns in black.

Lace peep-toes and a collection of white bangles completes her look, whilst her hair and make-up are as you would expect.

“Spread” Los Angeles Premiere

Demi Moore arrived with eye-candy Ashton Kutcher wearing a Louis Vuitton lavender dress with a draped bodice and cut-out details on the side.

She completed her look with multi-coloured Giuseppe Zanotti heels and a black clutch.

My request to Rumer Willis remains the same. Please dye your hair back to black.

The young actress wore a silver metallic strapless Karen Millen dress and Christian Louboutin heels.

Anne Heche looked very sexy wearing a black satin ruched Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress with brocade and jeweled sleeves.

This is the best she has looked this year.

Sienna Miller Changes 5 Times In One Day Promoting “G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra”

At this point Sienna Miller could wear a bin liner and I would find something positive to say.  She really is on top of her game.

Yesterday was a very busy day in New York for the actress, as she was out and about promoting her movie “GI Joe”.  With each stop came a new look.

I’m not sure which order they took but her Peter Pilotto Fall 2009 dress which has been modified from the runway was my favourite look.

I love the marble print and the Isabel Marant booties she paired with the dress for her appearance on “106 and Park” at BET’s Studios.

On her way to appear on “The Early Show” Sienna looked gorgeous wearing a summery Diane von Furstenberg Resort 2010 floral printed dress and two-tone T-bar heels, whilst carrying her favourite YSL ‘Besace’ grey messenger bag.

For her appearance on the “Live with Regis and Kelly” the actress wore a Derek Lam Fall 2009 look including a sequined sleeveless top, gathered skirt and with gold gladiator heels.

Leaving her hotel Sienna was spotted wearing an ivory top, with black woven pants, and another favourite look was her raspberry ruffled plunge-neck dress worn with Chloé bow embellished sandals.

Which one was your favourite look?

CBS, CW And Showtime All-Star Party

My second “Oh No She Didn’t” of the week goes to Jenna Elfman who channeled her inner Charlize Theron, wearing the same gold metallic Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 dress which Charlize wore to the “The Burning Plain” Paris Premiere back in March.

I like the dress but I don’t feel Jenna did it any justice mostly because she opted out of the black belt which gives the dress more shape.

Jenna’s dress just hangs around her middle like a sack.

Jessica Stroup is probably the only young actress who always seems to get it so right on the red carpet. She’s never faltered.

I adore her cute ensemble which includes a Stella McCartney sleeveless top, Catherine Malandrino black shorts and Stella McCartney gold trim platform pumps.

I’m loving the new bob.  It really suits her.

Annalynne McCord makes it a 3peat for this Alice + Olivia black and white strapless dress.

Amber Tamblyn and Khloe Kardashian have worn this dress already.

This dress is a huge step away from the slinky body-con dresses we are used to seeing Annalynne wear.  I’m not really feeling this look at all on her.

Sophia Bush’s floral dress gives me a warm fuzzy feeling of Autumn day when the leaves are falling off the trees, whilst the sun is shining on a beautiful day.

The whole look has a 40s vibe to it with the hair, the bold red lips and the dress.  Dita would love it.

I do like Shenae Grimes’ pink Camilla & Marc bustier dress, but it’s quite ironic that she fails to fill the dress.

As a result the dress doesn’t really flatter her which is disappointing as the colour is divine on her.

Jennifer Love Hewitt opt for an ice white strapless dress with a tie on the hip, but I’m more drawn to her stunning nude peep-toes with a cute bow detail.

Ashlee Simpson continues to channel her inner rock chick wearing this grey tweed dress with a lot of added leather and chiffon detail which mixes sweet with sassy.

Her look is paired with a black clutch and Balenciaga heels.

Elle Macpherson never met a Herve Leger dress she didn’t like.

This is two events in a row she has opted for a bandage dress.

Runway To “Slumdog Millionaire” Screening – Freida Pinto In Stella McCartney

It had been the worst kept secret in showbiz, but after months of speculation Freida Pinto and Dev Patel finally admitted that they’re a couple.

You only had to look at his puppy dog eyes to know he was madly in love with the Indian actress.

The pair were very close to each other as they introduced their film at London’s Somerset House for Film4 Summer Screening event.

Dev looked dapper in his Dolce & Gabbana suit, whilst Frieda showed us that she hasn’t lost any of her charm as she looked stunning wearing a Stella McCartney Resort 2010 dress.

The black satin dress has a sheer yoke with an interesting detail on the bodice which drapes over one-shoulder and onto the skirt.  She added some gold touches to her look including a gold embroidered Stella McCartney clutch, a gold cuff and gold Jimmy Choo ‘Freya’ heels.

Beautiful as always.

“Los Abrazos Rotos (Broken Embraces)” Berlin Premiere & Photocall

After wowing us in her red Bottega Veneta ensemble last week, Penelope Cruz appears to be on a roll as she looked outstanding wearing a forest green custom Herve L. Leroux gown to the Berlin premiere of “Los Abrazos Rotos (Broken Embraces)” yesterday.

I adore her draped one-shoulder gown as its such a classic red carpet look.

She really got everything right from the make-up, the subtle jewelry and her hair pulled back to show-off her neckline.

Regular readers will know that during awards season I was really frustrated with Cruz, but she appears to be back on top of her game.

Despite this laid back casual look for the “Broken Embraces” photocall in Berlin, Penelope still looks very glamorous in jeans, a black blazer, a chiffon print blouse and black peep-toes.
