The Art of Elysium’s 3rd Annual Gala “Heaven”

Posted by Catherine Kallon Comments

This is an incredibly long post, so please click ‘read more…’ below to see the rest of the looks from this amazingly well dressed event.

I was starting to lose hope that I would ever see this amazing Marchesa Fall 2009 dress on the red carpet.

Olivia Wilde has fulfilled my wish by looking drop-dead gorgeous wearing the strapless nude suede dress.

I love those embroidered floral details, the complementary taupe clutch and her nude Brian Atwood ‘Maniac’ pumps.

I don’t know much about Amber Heard, but I’m really impressed with her on the red carpet and shocked that she always manages to wear such big name designers.

Last night she looked sensational wearing this red Christian Dior Spring 2010 belted gown with a chiffon bodice and a satin skirt.

Since Charlize Theron has been M.I.A. on the red carpet in a while, I guess John Galliano might have been looking for an interim muse.

It’s not often we see 3 great Dior Spring 2010 looks in the space of 2 days.

Miss Dior herself – Marion Cotillard wore Dior to the Critic’s Choice Awards on Friday, then Chloe Sevigny wore Dior to the NY Times Style Magazine’s Pre-Golden Globe Awards Party on Saturday.

It’s always a pleasure to see Camilla Belle on the red carpet.

The actress wore a grey Valentino Spring 2010 dress with a satin bow detail on the hip.

I love the way the cape and skirt fan out.  It would’ve been amazing to watch this dress in motion.

I’m not sure about those stunning heels with the dress, but the heels are divine on their own.

On Friday I was worried that after Apphia Michael wore Viktor & Rolf to the Wallpaper Design Awards, that we would only get to see these pieces from this Spring 2010 collection inside magazines.

Anna Paquin delights us by wearing a strapless pink tulle dress with exaggerated hips.

She also blows my theory that only one of each look was ever made for this collection, as hers is pink to the runway’s grey and blue.

An Alexander McQueen knuckle duster clutch, Boucheron diamond studs, a Tom Binns necklace and black gladiator heels complete her look.

Rumer Willis opted for a fully lined version of this Christian Dior Spring 2010 gown with a leather bodice.

Something tells me this look would’ve looked better on her had it been way shorter.

Rachel Bilson continue to make Chanel look bland with her styling – or lack thereof.

This Spring 2009 dress is so cute.

I love the cap sleeves and the feathered details, but Rachel fails to inject any life into the dress.

Plus those YSL shoes feel to heavy for this dress.

Sorry Andrew, but your wish to see this blue Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010 baby blue dress at the Golden Globes just officially died.

I love how Jamie King gave this look a fresh lease of life by wearing it without the runway accessories.

Her silver accessories are perfect with this look.  They are complementary plus they don’t distract me from drooling over her dress.

As far as Nicole Richie is concerned boho chic is here to stay.

The mother of two looked gorgeous walking this red carpet wearing an Etro Spring 2010 multi-coloured paisley printed long sleeve wrap dress.

The Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2010 collection wasn’t my favourite from the French designer, but celebrities seem to love this collection.

First Rihanna, then Dita now Bryce Dallas Howard has worn a piece from his Spring 2010 collection.

I wouldn’t have considered this a red carpet worthy look, but I love the nude and the orange against Bryce’s pale skin.

I find it interesting because it doesn’t wash her out.

Katy Perry opted for a sexy white asymmetrical dress with a thigh-high split from Hussein Chalayan Spring 2010 collection.

Alexandre Birman nude heels and a purple shimmering Judith Leiber clutch complete the look.

I’m not a huge fan of lace gowns, but there’s no denying how beautiful Ashley Olsen gown is.

What would’ve made it work for me was if the dress was sleeveless without the yoke, and if she’d worn a lighter shade of lippie.

This is a rare sad day when I can look at Dita von Teese and say “me no likey”.

Her Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2005 Couture look is amazing on the runway, but I don’t like those floral sleeves on Dita.

I find them quite overwhelming on her.

Dita wore Boucheron jewels with her dress.

I love Rashida Jones’ Prada Resort 2010 gown.

I love the quirky print mixed with the sophisticated style of this stunning gown.

Sophia Bush gives us head-to-toe perfection wearing a Reem Acra Resort 2010 red gown with a sweetheart neckline.

This gown shows of her stunning curves making her one of the Best Dressed at this event.

A Judith Lieber clutch and stunning Loree Rodkin earrings complete her look.

Alicia Witt wore the same navy strapless fringed dress which Queen Latifah wore to the 2009 Grammy’s.

I love the dress, but I just wish she didn’t add those necklaces.

Vintage queen Marisa Tomei looked gorgeous wearing a strapless Traina Norell black and bubble-gum pink satin dress with detail hip bow from Decades inc.

Her look was paired with Boucheron jewels plus Casadei shoes.

Jessica Alba opted for a flirty red strapless mini Prada dress with a voluminous skirt.

She paired her dress with a stunning necklace, and black accessories.

I’m loving her new approach to the red carpet in 2010, it looks like mumsy Jessica is gone for good.

Jessica Szohr arrived with boyfriend Ed Westwick wearing a Kevan Hall embellished silk tulle illusion gown with plunging v-neckline and cascading ruffles on the skirt.

Kate Bosworth has been M.I.A. for a while, so it’s good to see her looking great wearing an Alexander McQueen slate grey strapless dress.

Which look was your favourite?
