Blake Lively For Vogue US February 2009

Vogue’s Best Dressed Star of 2008 – I kid you not – Blake Lively graces the cover of their February 2009 edition.

On the cover the Gossip Girl actress wears a black Marc Jacobs Spring 2009 dress, with a yellow sash.

It’s a nice cover, but I can’t help but be curious as to how she looked in full length in the dress.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On how the show ignores the economic recession:: “We live in an alternate universe on the show; it’s a heightened reality, so I don’t think the writers would work that in. They created a show that people can watch after a long day and not have to stress and worry and feel the burdens of real life. It’s just an escape, watching these sparkly lives and just escaping into this other world for an hour.”

On the clothes: “The fashion is just unbelievable. You can watch our show on mute and be entertained. Just being here, walking around, you pick it up really quickly. In New York, you put on skinny jeans and riding boots and a leather coat and handbag, and you take on that posture and character. It becomes very natural.”

On putting her personal touches on Serena’s wardrobe: “The more they work with me and see my style, and the more I learn about fashion, the more input I have. It’s more collaborative now than it was in the beginning because then I had no idea what I was doing.”

Katie Holmes For Miu Miu Spring 2009 Ad Campaign

It looks like it’s not only Victoria Beckham’s who Spring 2009 advertising campaign was launched today. Katie Holmes’ Miu Miu Spring 2009 campaign was also unveiled.

Katie is wearing one of Miuccia Prada’s graffiti-spattered day dresses, which was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott in New York last November.

If there was a battle of the advertising campaigns, Victoria would win hands down, as hers has more of an impact and a lot more personality.

Victoria Beckham For Giorgio Armani’s Spring 2009 Lingerie Ad Campaign

Here are the first pictures of Victoria Beckham posing for Giorgio Armani’s new lingerie ad campaign.

I think she looks gorgeous. Her body is not too skinny – as I expected – in fact she is very well toned.

Victoria landed the reported £12million, 3 year modeling deal late last year, following in the footsteps of her gorgeous husband David, who posed in his underwear for the same brand.

What you do you guys think?

Me? I love it. Can’t wait to see more.

Kendall Jenner's Balenciaga Prince of Wales Checked Wool Coat


InStyle/Warner Bros. Golden Globes After Party

Malin Akerman was by far the most outstanding at this event wearing a sunshiny yellow Jason Wu Spring 2009 gown.

Jennifer Esposito wowed me in this stunning ivory lace top with 80s shoulder pads, and a black high-waisted skirt both from the Balmain Spring 2009 collection.

I would kill for this look. ? it.

Before you ask, she is wearing a nude bra under her top.

Jessica Stroup wore a navy and black strapless Brian Reyes dress with a pair of gorgeous Manolo Blahnik heels

Garcelle Beauvais looked divine wearing a red rose Tracy Reese Spring 2009 full skirted asymmetrical dress, with matching shoes and a silver diamante clutch.

Sophia Bush was beautiful and statuesque wearing a black Peter Soronen strapless gown, with an amazing Badgley Mischka necklace.

Taylor Momsen’s grungy look kinda ruins this Christian Dior Spring 2008 fringed gown. Her hair tied back would have made her look so elegant.

Emma Stone wore a Cynthia Steffe Spring 2009 keyhole gown, with a tiered skirt and gold accents.

Ginnifer Goodwin’s Talbot Runhof liquid dress, is not something we are used to seeing on the red carpet. The dress is really interesting, with it gathered skirt and interest used of material.

She completes her look with a Daniel Swarovski silver clutch and pink nails.

Kristen Bell gets back to her best wearing a orange Etro gown.

I must admit I love this electric blue Zuhair Murad Spring 2008 Couture gown on Paris Hilton. I also much prefer Paris with shorter hair.

Sarah Chalke’s plunging taupe satin dress, looks so buttery against her skin.

Amanda Bynes opted out of wearing a gown, and wore this white embellished dress, with gold strappy heels.

Emma Roberts wears a very LBD, with lust-worthy black Pour La Victoire Bianca cutout platform booties.

The unofficial Missoni brand ambassador, Joy Bryant wears a other knitted pieces from their Fall 2008 collection.

Molly Sims opted for a very romantic look with her Diane von Furstenberg floral maxi dress and loose curls.

Brittany Snow kinda strikes out in this gown for me. For one so young, this is quite boring despite being designed by Leanna Marshall for DVF.

Emily Deschanel lights up the red carpet, in this orange dress, which she accessorized with a gold belt.

In Salma Hayek’s Closet – Alexander McQueen

The delectable Salma Hayek, arrived at Ed Sullivan Theater for her appearance on Late Show with David Letterman yesterday in New York, after dazzling on the red carpet at the Golden Globes this weekend.

The actress was on the show, to talk about her guest role on 30 Rock.

She was channeling a very a sexy secretary/business-type look which included an Alexander McQueen pink collar dress, under a Alexander McQueen ruffle collar jacket.

The deep plunging neckline ruffle collar jacket is beautifully sculptured to give Salma a stunning silhouette of a very nipped in waist. The deep plunging dress has a neon pink collar, which would attract attention, but I am sure Salma would do that anyway.

The dress and jacket are both available to purchase from Browns fashion. The dress retails at £845, and the jacket for £935.

Love the look, but not sure about the glasses though.

Let’s take a moment to drool over her McQueen pink sole heels……..

Who Wore Dolce & Gabbana Better? Fergie or Lindsay Lohan

Back in February, Fergie wore this black Dolce & Gabbana ruched corseted dress to Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall 2008 fashion show during Milan Fashion Week.

She wore her dress with purple heels and a single silver bracelet.

During October, Lindsay wore the same – but shorten – LBD to the screening of “Filth and Wisdom” with her favoured YSL Trib Two Platform Pumps.

The interesting thing here is that Lindsay was at the same fashion show with Fergie back in February. In fact they even posed together, but that obviously did not faze Lindsay from wearing the same dress later in the year.
