Runway To "Bride Wars" Paris Photocall – Kate Hudson in Louis Vuitton

Rachel Zoe is currently styling both Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway, so I can’t help but wish that Rachel had given this Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 embellished dress, with an obi belt to Anne.

Kate is not edgy enough nor does she have a uniqueness about her to pull this off. You can tell she think she looks really cool in it, but for me meh.

This dress looks, and was style much better on the runway, and I don’t say that very often.

Anne faired much better than she did last week. This time she wore this cream leather Gianfranco Ferre dress, which had a corseted waist, but I was not crazy about her choice of maroon heels.

Overall I am not wowed by either. They’re just both OK. I think I am expecting too much.

Runway To "Defiance" Germany Premiere – Satsuki Mitchell in Jenny Packham

Before I tear into this, I think it’s safe to say that it was never going to be easy to pull off this Jenny Packham Fall 2008 gown.

Jenny Packham is very much the go-to designer for sparkling, embellished red carpet gowns, and this nude ensemble with a black lace overlay, and a feather trim peplum at the waist, is very much a departure from what she usually presents.

Satsuki Mitchell wore this gown, when she attended yet another Defiance premiere, this time in Germany, with boyfriend Daniel Craig.

The ensemble is a cross between something that would have been worn on the Little House on the Prairie, or as I am sure regular commentator Leo would say – something an Amish bride would wear.

It does not flatter her, it only ages her. This is a very surprising, disappointing choice, which is made worse by not wearing the belt that it was presented with.

Runway To "Doubt" VIP London Screening – Amy Adams In Giambattista Valli

The Giambattista Valli Spring 2009 collection was full beautiful voluminous dresses.

Amy Adams wore a Valli ivory strapless printed dress with a bow detail, which is an amalgamation of two dresses that were presented on the runway. Amy wore her dress, when she attended a VIP screening of her film Doubt in London this evening.

Amy is fast becoming the unofficial ambassador for the brand, as we have seen her in a few pieces from the Valli collection recently.

I do like the dress, but in comparison to the runway versions, it makes what was hot, very lukewarm.

Diane Kruger perfectly pulled of a Valli voluminous dress last year. I wish Amy had been so bold.

Runway To “Defiance” New York Screening – Satsuki Mitchell in Alexander McQueen

Satsuki Mitchell arrived with Daniel Craig to the New York screening of Defiance last night.

Daniel’s plus one, wore a very sexy strapless black Alexander McQueen side peplum dress, with Lanvin cone heel pumps.

The black crepe strapless has a structured corset with a contrast nude insert at the front which could give the impression that the dress has a very deep plunge.

You can buy this dress from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $5,720, or the international site for £2,613/€3,478.68.

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better? Victoria Beckham or Anne Hathaway

For this edition of Who Wore it Better? I’m taking it to the streets.

In my Best Of 2008 posts, I gave Victoria Beckham the Best Sidewalk Style Award, because the sidewalk is her catwalk, and no one can out do her when it comes to shopping in 6″ heels and Balenciaga dresses to go shopping at The Grove.

This was evident when she breezed through Heathrow airport back in November.

Not one to wear tights and ruin an ensemble whilst it was raining in London -see why I love her- Victoria wore her taupe Stella McCartney Felt military coat, with a matching taupe Hermes bag, brown hat, and Christian Louboutin Arielle Ankle Boots.

Anna Hathaway was spotted in New York wearing the same coat in a creamy beige colour, when she made her way to The Early Show in New York on Monday.

Like Victoria, Anne wore her coat with celebrity shades, and unbuckled but tied at the waist.

As much as I am crushing on Anne at the moment, and as much as she looks fabulous giving Victoria a run for her money in her playground. I have to give this to VB.

The coat, the hat, the bag all compliment each other perfectly, plus she doesn’t have a stylist putting her together, so she deserves more credit.

You can buy the taupe Stella McCartney coat Victoria is wearing from the international Net-A-Porter site for £1,175/€1,570.

Runway To "Defiance" London Premiere – Satsuki Mitchell In Louis Vuitton

When handing out my Best Of 2008 Awards, there was one Award I missed. Best Plus One, and I would have given the award to film producer Satsuki Mitchell.

Satsuki looked magnificent by Daniel Craig’s side for all the Quantum Of Solace premieres last year – and there were many. Last night they walked the red carpet in London for the premiere of Daniel’s new movie, Defiance.

What I love about Satsuki when she walks the red carpet, is that she never tries to stand out. She knows he is the star, and she never tries to break away and be photographed alone, like Sarah Larson did, when she walked the red carpet with George Clooney.

Wearing her hair back Satsuki was dressed in a Louis Vuitton Fall 2008 dress which had a peplum at the waist, and embellishments down the front. The dress was slightly modified from the runway version, which I think worked for her.

Runway To "Seven Pounds" Paris Premiere – Rosario Dawson In Sonia Rykiel

Thank god the holidays are over, because everyone is back hitting the red carpet.

Rosario Dawson was in Paris with co-star Will Smith to promote their new movie Seven Pounds.

When Rosario arrived at the premiere, she wore a lilac taffeta strapless dress by the iconic French designer Sonia Rykiel.

The dress has either been modified from runway version, or Rosario’s curves fill the dress better. A white trim appears on both the bodice and the hem, plus the dress has panels that form a small train at the back of the dress.

She completes her fabulous look with violet suede Louboutin’s.

Très beau.
