2009 American Ballet Theatre Fall Gala

Posted by Catherine Kallon

I LOVED this asymmetrical Christian Siriano Spring 2010 marine blue gown with bubble skirt when I saw it presented on the runway during New York Fashion Week, and I prayed that the wearer would do it justice.

Veronica Webb my goosebumps say ‘yes you did’.

The model paired her dress with Martin Katz jewels and a large silver clutch.

BDOTW contender for sure.

Emmy Rossum attended the Marchesa Spring 2010 presentation during New York Fashion Week, but she opted for a stunning ivory one-shouldered gown from the Resort 2010 collection which had a stunning embroidered bodice.

She looks every inch the snow white princess, I bet she feels like in this stunning gown.

JoAnna Garcia wore a scarlet red Alberta Ferretti strapless gown which looked amazing against her bronze skin-tone.

The shoes I’m not so crazy about, and the look feels like it’s lacking something, like a clutch or some jewels.

Iman is unbelievable wearing a deep purple sequined Donna Karan plunging dress.

Unbelievably drop-dead-gorgeous.  I’m almost lost for words.

I’ve had this blog for over 2 years now, and she has never faltered.   If anything she just gets better and better.


All the leaves are brown, and the sky is grey but that doesn’t mean Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis shouldn’t stick to red carpet rule number 2. “No Coats On The Red Carpet”.

Now I will constantly wonder about Natalie’s sketched Chanel dress, and who designed Mila’s LBD under her white coat.

    Is Iman even human? The gorgeousness, it hurts! I just can’t believe the way she glows in that gown, the entire shot looks like a magazine editorial (except after seeing that Vogue cover, I cringe to compare the amazing Iman to a magazine shoot).
    Wow wow wow! Okay, sorry, I’m done now.

    Love love love Christian’s dress. It kind of looks like it belongs in Alexander McQueens Spring 2010 collection. Which is high praise!

    Wow! Iman is too much beautiful for words and the dress is amazing. The point here is not that she does the gown justice, but that this gown does her justice 🙂

    I love the Christian Siriano dress as well, I wish it wasn’t folded at the bottom, let the dress flow and move, it would of looked even more stunning in motion with the great color palette that was chosen for the print. Emmy looks just ok, it’s a pretty dress but that’s it, the same with JoAnna Garcia (she’s the girl on Gossip Girl right?). Ooooh Iman looks great, her color cordination is ON POINT! I love when a woman wears a sequin beaded dress, and can pull it off. And with this one she definetly did that, plus the deep, strong jewel tone color sends me to heaven!!

    Natalie and Mila look ok, nothing ground breaking.

  7. Lee October 9, 2009 at 8:58 am #

  8. Cheryl October 9, 2009 at 7:15 am #

    Iman = Purrrrrfection! And that Siriano dress on Veronica is absolutely divine!!! I adore this collection of Christian.

    Iman looks so regal! How old is she anyway? She never seems to age…its not fair!!

    • Fashion Critic October 9, 2009 at 9:03 am #

      54. Yes I did say 54. 😮

    • Fashion Critic October 9, 2009 at 9:06 am #

      drek??? what is that 🙂

      • mol October 9, 2009 at 5:45 pm #

        Sorry F.C., I’m such a bad speller; should be ‘dreck’, meaning rubbish, trash…….I really just meant that Iman sparkles with such genuine beauty and also, maybe unconsciously, I was thinking of others who try way too hard and fail. I LOVE your blog!

  14. kristen October 8, 2009 at 11:35 pm #

    i think nat and mila are perfect

  15. Ahot October 8, 2009 at 11:17 pm #

    can i please look like this when i am 50? iam not even that gorgeous at 30, (and Youth is supposed to be the best time in one’s life). Everytime i look at Iman i feel like i am lazy, not doing enough.sigh. I am ashamed to say i ENVY her for her good genes. I almost hate her for looking that good. Almost.

    • Fashion Critic October 9, 2009 at 9:09 am #

      54…you miss out 4 years. 🙂

      I totally agree with you regarding feeling lazing looking at Iman. I feel the same

  16. Jennifer October 8, 2009 at 9:56 pm #

    I am in love with the Christian Siriano dress… and Veronica looks amazing in it.

    I know my BDOTW dress without you even posting anyone else (Kristin was going to be until the Veronica+ Siriano combination). It will have to be one of his volcanic dresses on someone else looking spectacular to upstage Veronica and even then I might pick her because the blue looks so fantastic on her. J’adore.

    Iman is gorgeous i love it my outfit of the month !

  18. Hannah October 8, 2009 at 8:38 pm #

    I think this is the first red-carpet event where I’ve really liked what everyone is wearing. I would rather not have the coats, but it’s kind of cute how Natalie and Mila match without being too obvious about it.

  19. robbie October 8, 2009 at 8:34 pm #

    i am kicking myself right now arghhhhh natalies chanel dress was on ebay about 2 weeks ago and i decided not to get it. damn it!

    • Fashion Critic October 8, 2009 at 8:48 pm #

      REALLY..oh what a shame

      • robbie October 8, 2009 at 10:44 pm #

        i guess its fates way of saying it wasnt meant to be.


    • Ahot October 8, 2009 at 11:07 pm #

      • robbie October 9, 2009 at 4:29 pm # is the that that i always us.

        • Ahot October 9, 2009 at 8:47 pm #

          thanks honey!!!

  20. nicole October 8, 2009 at 8:16 pm #

    i think pretty much everyone in this post looks amazing ! but my fav has to be the siriano gown it is def BDOW so far for me … simply stunning.

  21. lee October 8, 2009 at 8:07 pm #

    FC, how do you feel about the one strap on emmy’s dress? i look and i don’t mind it, and then 5 seconds later i feel distracted.. i think it could’ve done without?

    • Fashion Critic October 8, 2009 at 8:10 pm #

      it works for me.

      it could’ve have been better as a strapless gown

  22. mm October 8, 2009 at 6:44 pm #

    Veronica is perfection. I agree BDOTW. Tall was a must for this gown which I love also.
    IMAN, “OFF THE DAYUM HOOK”, stunning!

  23. Raquel October 8, 2009 at 6:12 pm #

    Yeah, something is missing there with JoAnna, maybe jewelry, but I personally think her hair looks too casual, even though IMAN is sporting the samrehairdo.

    Oh, IMAN. Capslock deserved because before the Naomis and Cindys and Lindas and all the Russians and Brazilians there was IMAN.

    • Voguette October 8, 2009 at 7:12 pm #

      agree missing some bling

  24. Maddy October 8, 2009 at 6:03 pm #

    Iman is such a goddes! She’s absolutely incredible! I think it’s time for a “Best of Iman”

    • Fashion Critic October 8, 2009 at 6:05 pm #

      i think you might be right 😉
