Runway To “When In Rome” LA Premiere – Rose McGowan In Valentino

Actress Rose McGowan wore a shortened version of this Valentino Spring 2010 frill trimmed dress to the premiere of “When In Rome” in LA.

Chloe Sevigny recently wore the runway version of this rose coloured dress to the 2010 Golden Globes.

Although we named her one of the best dressed stars of the night, a lot of you didn’t agree and found her look too busy.

I can’t decide how I feel about Rose’s take on this dress. I think that by shortening it she has lost a lot of its drama.

I also think she’s quite pale to be wearing this colour – it washes her out slightly.

What’s your take on this dress? Do you prefer it to the longer runway look?

Runway To Saks Fifth Avenue’s Unforgettable Evening – Taylor Swift In Valentino

Kate Moss wasn’t the only one wearing a look from the Valentino Resort 2010 collection last night.

Teen singer Taylor Swift opted for red one-sleeved Valentino Resort 2010 asymmetrical dress which hugs her tall slender frame.

I love this dress on Taylor. It’s cute, young, fun and event appropriate without being boring.

Her trademark curly blonde locks are swept to one side, whilst she added a touch of rouge to her lips.

The Princess of Sparkle, didn’t go without any bling. Her gold peep-toes twinkled as brightly as her clutch.

Definitely a contender for BDOTW. We normally only seen her on the list wearing a heavily embellished dress, so this will be really refreshing.

Runway To Kate Moss For Longchamp Collection Launch Party – Kate Moss In Valentino

To celebrate her line of handbags for Longchamp, Kate Moss attended the launch party at the Ritz Club in Paris.

The model/designer was wearing a black lace Valentino dress from the Resort 2010 collection.

Kate has chosen to wear a shorter version of this dress and with those legs – why not.

I’m not usually a fan of a black and white colour palette but I love this cropped white jacket against the delicate black lace of the dress.

I really like the layered neckline of this dress with the asymmetrical sash and scalloped bodice.

To find out more about Kate’s collection of handbags for Longchamp – which will hit Longchamp boutiques and Bloomingdales on February 11 – go to Longchamp.com.

Runway To Golden Globes After Party – Amanda Seyfried In Valentino

Amanda Seyfried looked breath-taking at the HBO’s Post Golden Globe Awards Party wearing a black and beige Valentino Fall 2009 Couture dress.

I’ve always loved those illusion straps on many of the pieces from this collection with embroidered leaf detail, which could easily be mistaken for a tattoo.

The dress is so delicate and feminine which I love, but it’s also a risky choice which the actress pulls off very well.

I’m not so crazy about her Valentino Couture nude petal detailed peep-toe booties though.

They appear to be the similar to the one’s Camille Belle wore in black to the Art of Elysium “Heaven” Gala.

18.01.10 Best Dressed

2010 Golden Globes Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award

I was a bit underwhelmed by this red carpet until I saw Diane Kruger.

Ever since I attended the Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 Couture show in January last year I’ve been praying to see this gown on the red carpet.

Diane more than does this stunning pink ombre gown justice. The colour really pops on the soggy red carpet on a cold and rainy night in LA.

I love the sleek old Hollywood hairstyle. She was really out to impress.

Her white Raven Kauffman Couture clutch matched the pretty white bow on the side of her dress.

Most Predictable Award

There would’ve been no prizes for guessing that Marion Cotillard would wear Christian Dior.

Style.com even predicted that exact dress she would wear.

Being the face of ‘Lady Dior’ helps, plus when we see her in Dior we always get spectacular results.

Her petrol green satin asymmetrical Spring 2010 dress has a thigh-high split with a black négligée peeping through.

Jimmy Choo ‘Drake’ sandals and Chopard jewels complete her look.

Biggest Shock Award

Courteney Cox walked the red carpet last night wearing a black strapless dress from Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2010 collection.

Like most pieces from VB’s collection the dress was well structured and had a ‘top to hem’ zipper along the back.

I liked the jeweled detail on the empire waist, and the chic updo Courteney sported.

Normally I don’t care much for Courteney on the red carpet, but she really surprised me by how great she looked.

She carried a black Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch.

Her husband actor David Arquette dutifully kept her dry from the pouring rain.

Best Couture Award

This is definitely one of those ‘better on screen look’s.  Unfortunately the picture isn’t doing Drew Barrymore any favours.

Her Atelier Versace Fall 2009 one shoulder champagne gown was stunning.

The nude corset was covered by a nude crystallized overlay, with two clusters of glass fringes on the shoulder and the hip.

Her hair was swept back as not to interfere with the details, as the actress wore Lorraine Schwartz jewels to complete her look.

It’s A Grower Award

I’ve been going back and forth with Julianne Moore.

I was just about to put her on the Worst Dressed list, when I decided that her Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2008 dress wasn’t as bad as I first thought.  Mostly because she looks so elegant.

The grey colour initially put me off this silk bustier gown, but I really like the pleated lace detailed neckline and her green Bvlgari earrings were magnificent.

Black suede Balenciaga stingray sandals complete the look.

Beautiful, Even When Slightly Wet Award

Chloe Sevigny would’ve been the most worried about getting her rose Valentino sleeveless gown wet as it would’ve deflated those beautiful ruffles.

But she was lucky to have a someone to help shield her dress from the rain.

Buccellati jewels complete the look.

Va Va Voom ‘Jessica Rabbit’ Award

Christina Hendricks has the most amazing body, which she always dresses so well.

She leaves me breathless in this stunning Christian Siriano Spring 2010 gown which was custom-made to hug those delicious curves.

She carried a Christian Loubuotin ‘Kephron’ silver clutch and wore Loree Rodkin jewels. Read More…

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

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. Read More…
