Angelina Jolie’s Backwards Max Azria SAG Awards Gown

I was sent a message from a reader who said I was wrong to say that Angelina Jolie’s dress was backwards to how it was presented on the runway.

I’m sorry to say it, but I still do believe I’m right.

The dress has the same kimono style sleeves, the same deep-plunge, the same gathered elasticated waisted line, the two flaps on either side of the plunge, and the same detail on the skirt.

Angelina was never going to wear a dress with such a deep plunge, so wearing it back to front was her compromise.

These two dresses, which I was told were the same, are not the same in my opinion. Not even close.

I don’t even think the materials are the same. The sleeves are definitely not the same, and this runway dress does not have an elasticated waist.

Judge for yourself.

UPDATE: Thanks to DolceLorenzo, who watched Fashion Wrap Up were Jennifer Rade – Angelina’s stylist – confirmed that she did wear the dress back to front.

Runway To Graduate Catwalk Show – Nicola Roberts In Richard Nicoll

Nicola Roberts from UK girl group Girls Aloud arrived at the Graduate Catwalk Show at the V&A Museum in London last night.

The singer has her own make-up range called Dainty Doll, which was specifically made for people with pale skin like herself. I love that fact that the singer is now very comfortable in her skin, and no longer feels the need to apply layers of St Tropez.

I love the nude bodice, and hem of the Richard Nicoll Spring 2009 dress, which blends into her skin. I also love the contrast of colours and the orange draping.

She wore her dress with an ivory and gold detailed Lara Bohinc Tatiana clutch.

Richard Nicoll is very well known for his sleek silk mini dresses and oversized T-shirt dresses in an eye-popping colour-blocking.

Two such dresses appear on The 3 colour block dress can be purchased from the US site for $480, and the international site for £255/€338.75.

My favourite is the two tone dress, which can also be purchased from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $755, and the international site for £400/€534.19.

Runway To Sidewalk – Lily Allen In Chanel

With her head kept warm from the plummeting English temperature in a Prada fur hat, Lily Allen step out wearing jeans, a white vest top, gold ballet pumps and a Chanel Spring 2008 striped jacket.

She was seen popping into Radio 2, The Conran Shop, and USP Content.

It is quite clear that Lily has a love affair with Chanel, as she is always seen either wearing their clothes or carry their bags.

But on this occasion she is carrying a Givenchy Sacca Chain Handle Bag, which you can find on for $1,495.

Love the bag, not so keen on the hat.

Runway To "Valkyrie" London Premiere – Katie Holmes In Escada

It know it was Tom Cruise’s night, as he was promoting his new movie Valkyrie in London last night. But I would have love it if we had got just one photo of Katie Holmes alone, so we could take in the splendor of her Escada Pre-Fall 2009 flapper-esqe cocktail dress.

The black embroidered exquisite dress had ribbon ties on the shoulders, and embellished details all over. The dress exposed her long slender legs, which Katie kept warm in opaque tights, under Givenchy Lace ankle sandals.

And I will say the tights were needed. It was a bitterly cold night in London, so kudos to her for braving the coat for our viewing pleasure.

I am rejoicing at the return of the sleek bob, with the side sweeping bangs. That was always my favourite hairstyle of hers.

Runway To The Creative Coalition’s Inaugural Ball – Marisa Tomei In Giambattista Valli

Finally an actress other than Diane Kruger who has worn this Giambattista Valli Spring 2009 dress as it was intended…WITH VOLUME.

Amy Adams wore a dress from this collection recently, but she ruined it by making it so flat and lifeless.

Marisa Tomei wore this stunning 3/4 length sleeve black dress, when she attended The Creative Coalition’s Inaugural Ball last night.

She kept her look simple by adding black pumps, and her favourite Fendi Mini Borderline satin clutch.

Runway To Fendi Party – Victoria Beckham In Victoria Beckham Collection

It has been a while but Victoria Beckham finally ditched the black.

Victoria and David Beckham attended the My Sky HD Wears Fendi cocktail party, as part of Milan Menswear Fashion Week last night.

The fashion designer wore a red dress from her collection, with red crocodile Christian Louboutin Rolando’s.

Her pixie cut, was elegantly styled to mimic an updo, which maybe an indication that she is already seeking a new do.

In one of the pictures she is posing with Franca Sozzani, the editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia. The woman behind the famous all Black issue.

With Victoria in Italy. A Vogue Italia cover just maybe in the works.
