03.02.09 Premiere

"He’s Just Not That Into You" LA Premiere


Jennifer Connelly is killing me. I’m in total awe.

When I saw her wearing this green sequined Balmain Spring 2009 dress with a jagged hem, and super padded shoulders, I almost yelped with delight.

I love that she pulled this off without looking like she tired too hard.

I love that she wore the runway shoes, as any other shoe my have dialed down the look.

I love that she stood out amongst all the others as the edgy fashionista that she is.

LOVE, Love, ♥.


Drew Barrymore looks so incredible cute don’t you think?

I love that her hair is pulled back so we can fully appreciate the black silk strapless Lanvin Spring 2009 dress. The nude satin detailing on the neckline is divine against her skin, so buttery.

Her Roger Vivier clutch has so much bling, that she kept her jewels to a minimum with simple earrings.


I have to say I was surprised by Scarlett Johansson. I didn’t expect this from her at all, given her run on The Spirit promotional tour.

The gorgeous actress was positively radiant wearing a pink floral Oscar de la Renta Spring 2009 sweetheart necklined gown with a ruched bodice.

She wore her dress with long gold drop earrings, her wedding ring and a large ruby ring, which I adore.

I will excuse the hair behind her ears, because it was only in some pictures, and that’s not how she deliberately styled it.



Wow Ginnifer Goodwin is also a knock out.

The brunette hair with the burnt orange is so incredibly powerful. I really love her look here.

In order to add a little punch to her shorten strapless Bottega Veneta Spring 2009 dress, she wore a beautiful glass floral necklace, with a tan clutch, and strappy heels.

This would have been one of the best red carpet film premieres if it were not for……


…Jennifer Aniston.

Please, please don’t pretend you’re surprised by what she is wearing.

It’s a gorgeous black Burberry tuxedo, yes it is, but compared to everyone else, she is SO BORING.

So unoriginal, so Aniston, so blah, so boring, which is such a shame because she’s so beautiful.

2009 Oscar Nominees Luncheon

I am really hoping Anne Hathaway is saving her best dress for the Oscars, because this ivory Chloe crystal embroidered dress is slightly ill fitting, plus I think the colour washes her out.

She wore her dress with Christian Louboutin Very Galaxy heels.

Taraji P. Henson is wearing my favourite colour.

Some of you might think her look is too matchy matchy, but I love the colour against her skin.

What I don’t like is her choice of clutch. Apart from the colour, it feels too big and cheap for her chic Alberta Ferretti ensemble.

Amy Adams wore a haltered turquoise RM by Roland Mouret dress with gold sandals.

Although I like the colour, I am not too sure about the draping on the front of her dress.

It’s nice to see her hair down again.

Kate Winslet was the only nominee who opted for black.

She looked flawless, as we have come to expect, wearing head to toe Helmut Lang.

Penelope Cruz had only arrived in LA, 2 hours before this luncheon, after flying from the Goya Awards in Madrid.

After a 10 hour flight I am sure dressing up was the last thing on her mind, but the Oscar nominated actress make a good effort in this ivory YSL suit.

Love the big blown out hair.

Marisa Tomei wore a very chic Christian Dior ivory belted dress, with champagne coloured Jimmy Choo shoes.

She carried a clutch which matched her dress.

Viola Davis loves bright colours. This was evident in her vibrant yellow SAG Awards gown, and again here, with her red David Meister sheath dress.

She completed her look with Givenchy heels.

Who Wore Diane von Furstenberg Better? America Ferrera or Kelly Brook


America Ferrera arrived at the 2008 ALMA Awards wearing a strapless black and white striped Diane von Furstenberg Kensington dress.

She wore her dress with a white pair of Christian Louboutin Jolie Noeud Dorcet shoes, her hair pulled back, and bright red lips.

UK TV presenter Kelly Brook wore the same dress as part of a nautical theme, when she opened the London Boat Show at ExCeL last month in London. Complete with sailor hat, and red strappy sandals.

Although the dresses are the same, America’s has been modified on the bodice.

Despite the hat, Kelly wears it better for me, as America’s white shoes are too obvious.


This dress is available to purchase from Matches Fashion for £637, and DvF.com for $750.

Runway To Crazy Horse – Dita von Teese in Elie Saab Couture


It certainly pays off to be front row at an Elie Saab Couture show, as Dita wore her second Elie Saab Spring 2009 Couture dress in the space of a few days.

Last night as The Crazy Horse in Paris, the burlesque performer walked the red carpet looking like a perfect porcelain doll.

Her black strapless dress, had a glittering lace overlay. The look was pulled together with an obi-style belt, black peep-toes and standard red lips.

2009 Goya Cinema Awards

I am still not crazy about Penelope Cruz’s half up, half down hairstyle, but here is no denying how great she looks in this gorgeous Chanel lace dress.

The Spanish star accessorized her classic dress, with a pair of Chopard diamond drop earrings, and a black satin clutch.

Paz Vega wore this adorable strapless pink Hannibal Laguna dress, with ruffled details cascading down the back, and on the hem.

The Spanish actress is expecting her second child, and her dress is doing a great job at concealing her baby bump.

She completes her look with 7in sky-high lace-print Giuseppe Zanotti heels, and a Roger Viver clutch.

Maribel Verdu wears one of my favourite dresses from the Christian Dior Resort 2008 collection.

The tangerine dress has multiple tiers, and exquisite embellished details on the neckline and belt.

She completes her look with an orange clutch, and gold heels.

If you are going to wear a black dress, my advice would be punch up the look with an amazing stand-out pair of heels. That is exactly what Manuela Velasco did by wearing a pink platform pair of Christian Dior Spring 2009 heels. You may remember that Mischa Barton wore a yellow pair last week.

Belen Rueda looks absolutely outstanding wearing this white Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 gown.

The ruffle details that cascade down the whole of this gown is simply breath-taking.

The embellished straps and waistline details may seem harsh on a white gown for some people, but I think the gown would be too plain without them.

Rosana Pastor’s Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 strapless leather-look gown, was equally outstanding. Talk about hugging every curve.

This was another one of my favourite Spring 2009 gowns, and Rosana more than did it justice.

Best actress winner Carme Elias, wore a delicate taupe chiffon gown by Rosa Esteva for Cortana. I just love how regal she looks in her gown.

Speaking of regal. That is very much the vibe Leticia Dolera was giving us in her ethereal floral Josep Font gown.

Dafne Fernandez wore a black liquid deep plunging gown from the Hannibal Laguna One & Only collection.

The gown was accented with a square brooch detail.

Monica Cruz tends to outshine her big sister Penelope at these occasions, but her Roberto Cavalli Pre-Fall 2009 gown just doesn’t hit the spot for me.

Actress and singer Olivia Molina arrived wearing a white Azzaro gown with crystal embellished neckline and belt.

Are you thinking you have seen it before?

That’s because Anne Hathaway wore it to the SAG Awards recently.

Maria Leon’s Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 strapless ivory dress, with a sculptured skirt is way too plain. It’s missing the jewel encrusted belts that were part of the collection.

Actress Malena Alterio wore a purple column dress from Juanjo Oliva’s Spring 2008 collection.

I love the cute butterfly on the waist. Mimi would approve.

Goya Toledo’s satin Christian Dior gown, is not my favourite dress of this ceremony. The skirt is way too busy.

Cinema Academy President Angeles Gonzalez Sinde, arrived wearing a stunning gown from the Devota & Lomba Spring 2008 collection.

I love the purple, the stripes, and the way she looks better than some of the actresses on this red carpet.

Aitana Sanchez Gijon opted for a chocolate brown Oscar de la Renta Resort 2009 strapless ruffled gown.

Kudos to Maria Botto for trying something very adventurous by wearing this Juanjo Oliva Spring 2006 gown, but I just don’t get it.

Leonor Watling’s Josep Font blue and black turtle neck gown was just not the right choice for her imo.

The gown looks so fantastic on the Josep Font website, but Leonor fails to bring it to life.

Model and TV host Mar Saura dared to follow Gisele Bundchen by wearing this satin pale pink Verasce Fall 2008 gown.

Mar looks great in this dress, but Gisele totally owned this dress, so Mar just comes off looking second best.

In Katie Holmes’ Closet – Juicy Couture Maxi Dress


Katie Holmes are currently in Brazil with her husband, who is promoting his film Valkyrie.

I am currently wishing I was there with them, because it’s snowing in London.

The couple aren’t able to take a break from the paparazzi, who caught them leaving Sushi Leblon in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday night.

Katie kept her look casual wearing a Juicy Couture print maxi dress, under a white cardigan with tan gladiators.

The spaghetti strapped floor-sweeping printed maxi dress is really cute. It has a drawstring empire waist, and a contrast ruffled hem.

Prepare yourself for summer by purchasing this maxi from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $350, and the international site for £260/€318.
