21st Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Opening Night Gala

Effortlessly chic as always Marion Cotillard walked the red carpet wearing a one shoulder black Elie Saab dress with a 3/4 sleeve and an exaggerated shoulder.

I love the hair and make-up with this look. Like Penelope Cruz earlier, the less make-up they appear to be wearing the more beautiful they are.

The French actress is widely known for wearing Dior, on this occasion she opted for a pair of Dior Fall 2009 heels which added a touch of glamour to her look along with a Christian Louboutin Lolita studs clutch.

Mariah Carey has been up for several awards following her success in the movie “Precious”. As a result she has started dressing more aappropriately on the red carpet.

Gone are the dresses 2 sizes too small with necklines that plunge to her belly button, and in comes this stunning Herve Leger gown covered in sparkling black sequins which she pairs a with a cropped cardigan.

Mariah wouldn’t be Mariah without some bling and a butterfly, and this is exactly how she accessorized her look.

Anna Kendrick looks divine wearing a layered strapless J.Mendel dress which we first saw on Amanda Seyfried in the August 2008 edition of Vanity Fair’s Bright Young Hollywood Issue.

I loved the lilac sash paired with the dress when Amanda wore it, so looking as Anna I feel like that’s what would have made this look even better.

Gold Jimmy Choo “Nina” strappy sandals and a wavy updo complete the look.

Runway To “2nd Annual Robert Garlock Screening” – Penelope Cruz In Naeem Khan

The big guns are back yeaa.

I feel like I’ve been on a red carpet detox, so it was great to see Penelope Cruz look outstanding as she attended the 2nd Annual Robert Garlock Screening to introduce her latest movie “Nine”.

The Spanish beauty looked beautiful wearing a white crystal web beaded Naeem Khan Spring 2010 dress.

The dress has been modified slightly to include a nude lining, which protects her modesty and also allows the crystal details to stand out even more.

I love make-up. So subtle and light and complementary to her gorgeous dress.

Unfortunately I don’t have a full length photo, so I will imagine she wore the same heels as the model.

Hoping to see more Naeem Khan magic on the red carpet this year.

Thank you to Cory from the NYU Tisch School for this exclusive photo.

Runway To “Dick Clark’s New Years Rockin’ Eve” – Fergie In Emilio Pucci

Fergie co-hosted “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” with Ryan Seacrest from Las Vegas.

Along with her host duties, Fergie also performed “Meet Me Halfway” with her band The Black Eyed Peas, which the crowd enjoyed as they danced into the New Year.

Whilst hosting Fergie looked stunning wearing blue sequined Emilio Pucci Resort 2010 long sleeved mini dress which showed off her enviable legs.

Of course she had to line the dress, but this takes nothing away from the look in fact I think it looks much better lined.

Her hair was trademark loose and wavy, with just her wedding ring accessorizing her look.

If you had said to me 2 years ago that I would have a girl crush on Fergie, I would have said you are crazy.

Definitely a BDOTW contender.

Runway To “Pre-New Year’s Eve Party” – Kim Kardashian In Balenciaga

Kim Kardashian arrived at a pre-New Year’s Eve bash at Eva Longoria Parker’s luxurious new nightclub, Eve in Las Vegas last month.

As much as I have wanted to see more from the Balenciaga Fall 2009 collection on the red carpet, I’m really not feeling this look on Kim Kardashian.

I’m not being snobby by disliking it because she’s a reality TV star, that’s only 5% of the problem.

Firstly she’s way too busty for this dress. A bandeau or a lining would’ve been preferred. I feel like she only picked this look to show off her bra.

The dress is supposed to be a slightly dropped at the waist, but the band around the waist sits too high on Kim, no doubt because of her famous asset.

This will also be the reason why the skirt appears to be shorter.

If she was going to wear an edgy look, a sexier shoe would have been preferred.

Sorry Kim, but the only thing I like about this look is the clutch.

What do you guys think?

In Leighton Meester’s Closet – Christopher Kane & Nina Ricci

Whilst most celebs have been sunning themselves in St. Barts or skiing in Aspen, Leighton Meester has been working to get “singing career” off the ground.

At the opening party of Miami’s newest nightclub Klutch, the actress/”singer” wore a sexy Christopher Kane Spring 2009 LBD with the trademark scalloped edges which featured heavily in Kane’s Spring 2009 collection.

It’s been hard to maintain a style crush on Leighton Meester recently, as both her looks and make-up have been very questionable.

But here she gets back on track looking sexy, chic and confident pairing her dress with YSL suede ankle boots.

I love everything about this look which grants her the first place in the BDOTW poll.

Leighton Meester hosted a post-New Year’s party at the Venetian in Las Vegas on Saturday night and again she didn’t let us down in the style stakes.

She looked fresh faced wearing a Nina Ricci Resort 2009 layered spaghetti strapped dress with a ruffled asymmetrical skirt.

Her dress was paired with Derek Lam Spring 2010 strappy sandals.

I’ll do my best to pretend that her good run wasn’t spoilt by this lace and taupe pant ensemble at Dusk night club on NYE in Atlantic City.

I could’ve loved it, if it weren’t for those pants.

Social Events Of The Week

“Avatar” Paris Press Conference

Zoe Saldana was in Paris recently were she wore a RM by Roland Mouret Jason crepe wrap dress.

The grey dress has a draped collar which gives the casual dress a very smart feel.

I love her the purple peep-toes she paired with this dress.

The Comedy Theatre, London

Keira Knightley kept the Great British winter weather at bay by wearing a leather Burberry Prorsum Fall 2009 coat, which had a warm lining.

A stripey top, skinny jeans and Jimmy Choo Yule biker boots complete the look.

“My Son, My Son What Have YE Done” LA Premiere

I’m sure you will agree with me that had anyone else had worn these Chloe Resort 2010 leopard print tapered pants it would be a major disaster, but somehow Chloe Sevigny pulls them off.

She paired them with a white vest and a leather jacket.

22nd European Film Awards, Germany

Isabelle Huppert aka Cannes “Queen of Couture” arrived at this event wearing a Givenchy Fall 2009 LBD.

It wasn’t any ordinary LBD, as it had only one sleeve.

I love the structure in the shoulders, and the intricate cuts and folds on the that makes this look so interesting.

Hennessey Ingalls Art and Architecture Bookstore, LA

Oh this pop of blue gets me every time.  LOVE IT.

Dita von Teese’s electric blue Alexander McQueen plunging dress was the perfect colour for her pale skin.  I really love the contrast.

She wore her structured dress with black heels, whilst carrying an Alexander McQueen Union Jack skull clasp clutch.
