The Inaugural Ball's Red Carpets

Demi Moore continues to blow me away. She looks outstanding wearing a black strapless Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2009 cocktail dress, with a folded detail on the front of her skirt. Her hair was wavy, make-up flawless, and she is starting to become one of my girl crushes.

Angelina Jolie's Backwards Max Azria SAG Awards Gown

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.

In Heidi Montag's Closet - Sigerson Morrison Gladiator Boots

Heidi Montag is perhaps the only star from The Hills who does not get sent free stuff, so what you see her wearing, she has brought. I haven't agreed with a lot of her choices, but I do like her black Chanel blazer and her Sigerson Morrison Gladiator boots. She wore these boots on a night out with her husband, Spencer Pratt over the weekend, when the couple attended the Affliction "Day of Reckoning" MMA fight in LA. The open-toe gladiator boots, with a 3.75in heel by Sigerson Morrison have a tribal feel to them, with thin leather strips held together by cording. I found these boots on for $1,694.

Social Events Of The Week: Paris Hilton Arrives In London

Apparently there were pink taxis all over London yesterday, which could have only meant that Paris Hilton was in town. Paris arrived at her press screening of Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend, wearing a very cute pale pink silk chiffon Jenny Packham dress with silver crystal beading embellishment. Her silver pumps were also embellished, and she arrived with a Fendi bag, and winter white coat with a fur collar.

Who Wore Reem Acra Better?

This Reem Acra gown is from the Resort 2009 collection. It's not the same dress which Lisa Edelstein wore to the SAG Awards this weekend, although they look very similar.

Lisa Rinna arrived at the 2008 Emmy Awards back in September wearing a white Reem Acra Resort 2009 asymmetrical gown, with a jeweled detail on the shoulder. For me this was one of her best ever looks.

Actress Gabrielle Union recently wore the same dress in black when she arrived to host the BET Honors event in Washington.

It was recently announced that Kimora Lee-Simmons is pregnant, and we got so see a first glimpse of her baby bump in her cute gold baby doll dress.

Social Events Of The Week: VH1 Presents Pepsi Smash Super Bowl Bash, Florida

Kim Kardashian wore a black strapless mini Ina Soltani dress with a feathered hem. She wore her dress with a black cropped jacket, and YSL Trib Two heels. The dress is cute, but it looks like she is growing out her bangs already, and it's very much in the in-between awkward phase.

Social Events Of The Week: Byron & Tracey Salon Party, LA

Speaking of gorgeous, no one does the boho/hippy look better than Nicole Richie. For her it's not a trend, just a style that she feels comfortable with, and suits her perfectly. Her kimono-style blue and white printed Issa dress doesn't drown her tiny frame, in fact it's a perfect fit. She completes her look with a snake-skin clutch.

Angelina Jolie's wore grey Ralph Lauren dress with cap sleeves, she looked gorgeous at her Changeling press conference in Tokyo today. She wore her dress with her favorite pumps by Stuart Weitzman.

The problem is all her non-black dresses, have been so-so, whereas this black Reem Acra satin wrap dress is so divine on her. She is radiant.

Who Wore Alberta Ferretti Better?

Mischa Barton was the first to wear this Alberta Ferretti one-shouldered gown when she arrived at the Blindness premiere during the 61st Cannes International Film Festival in France. The actress wore her gown with a matching clutch, and her hair swept to one side.

Ivanka Trump wore the same dress when she attended the 2008 Library Lions Benefit at the New York Public Library's Humanities and Social Sciences Library in New York. The stunning Business Executive wore the same dress, but with a lot more style and finesse, plus her jewels are outstanding, so she wins this for me.

Runway to Red Carpet: Zuhair Murad

Beyonce Knowles looks absolutely stunning when she took to the red carpet for the New York premiere of Cadillac Records. The singer/actress walked the red carpet wearing a outstanding Zuhair Murad Fall 2008 gown, which hugged every curve. The haltered gown had a lurex bodice, beaded skirt and a long lurex train. OK the dress is very much what you would expect from Mrs Carter, but sometimes it's best to stick to a tried and trusted style, especially if the results are as outstanding as this.

She was almost a perfect 10, but my only criticism would be of her hair. I have not quite understood this need to wear it as high as that.

Others in attendance were Beyonce’s co-star Adrien Brody, as well as her mother Tina, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Gabrielle Union.

Runway To Photo Shoot: Victoria Beckham Harper's Bazaar US January 2009

Victoria Beckham graces the cover of Harper's Bazaar US January 2009 looking stunning, and she smiling, for a nice change.

She has plenty to smile about as she has graced the cover of nearly every Harper's Bazaar and Glamour worldwide, and she has also sold out her entire dress collection in Selfridges London and Manchester, sealing her credibility as a designer.

Not all are happy about this though. The Daily Mail has wrongly questioned her design skills.

Here are some extracts from her Harper's Bazaar interview:

On always being in high heels: "Oh, c’mon, they’re not that hard to walk in…They’re not uncomfortable! You have to go to a sex shop to get this spray to polish them."

On her success in the fashion world: "I really had to prove myself, though…But now I feel like I am competing in an arena where I belong."

On her routine: "It’s funny; I go to the gym now…I run four miles a day…I go into hair and makeup, and I turn into ‘Victoria Beckham.’ I’ll try on all my dresses, and I’ll pick out a handbag, and I’ll put on the shades. I instantly turn into this person, and it sort of feels like a character. And there are so many pictures of it…But it’s a true character because it’s still me."

On occasionally letting herself go: "I run around the house in a tracksuit sometimes!…If I go to the supermarket looking like s—, that affects my work. I am selling an image. Plus, I have fun with it."

On her image: "I have started smiling…I’ve mastered this smirk; it’s a smile that isn’t a smile."

On her previous performance anxiety: "I used to get so nervous, and when I got on the red carpet, I’d freeze up. I’ve had so many things said about me over the years, like a public bullying."

On not being nervous anymore: "The older you get, the more comfortable you become with yourself, and you accept what you have physically. Also, the fact that my business is doing very well…makes me feel a little more confident, too."

On the paparazzi: "I don’t complain about paparazzi because I’ve put myself in that position, and so has David. But I always say to the boys, someone is going to take your picture because you’re handsome or you’re smart or because you’re so good at soccer. But every now and again, Romeo might pick up one of David’s cameras and say, ‘Victoria, Victoria, over here!’ And his attitude is sort of angry… I tell you, the paparazzi would not be sitting outside if they realized I was the most boring person in Hollywood."

In Kim Kardashian's Closet - D&G

We have seen a style transformation in Kim Kardashian, and this is because she has hired Angelina Jolie's stylist Jennifer Rade, I kid you not.

Dressed to impress Kim walked the red carpet outside the Apple Lounge in West Hollywood to attend the Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party Video Game Launch Party.

The reality TV star was wearing a D&G ruffle front strapless dress with suede nude platform heels.

The dress with a built in corset has a nude ruffled top, a charcoal grey skirt and a tan belt., and Revolve Clothing from $825 to $578.

Runway to Red Carpet: To The 2008 AMAs Red Carpet

Pussycat Dolls all wore pieces from the Christian Siriano Spring 2009 collection.

This is what I mean about looking cohesive. They are not all necessarily wearing the same colours, but they compliment each other so well.

From left to right; Melody Thorton wore a lime green halter-neck dress, with pewter strappy sandals.

My favourite Doll, Jessica Sutta, wore a charcoal grey skirt, with a lime green strapless top and over-the-knee black boots.

Nicole Scherzinger wore a gorgeous strapless grey mini dress with a purple ombre hem. She completed her look with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.

Ashley Roberts also wore a strapless mini, but hers was nude with a black overlay, which she paired with black strappy sandals.

Runway To Photo Shoot: Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum graces the cover of the InStyle US December 2008 edition looking as stunning as ever, with her megawatt smile.

In her interview the Victoria's Secret model talks about singing and her husband, Seal. Here are some extracts:

On her husband: "Sometimes I lie in bed and I’m like, ‘Oh my god, there’s Seal lying next to me. What’s he doing there?’ I get a smile on my face immediately. Our honeymoon period is definitely not over. [We] have date nights. We go to dinner or to the movies. We like to keep it romantic. Some people wake up in the morning and turn over when they see their mate. That’s not us."

On how Seal has influenced her wardrobe: "I’ve gotten more stylish since I’ve been with my husband. I was always making fun of him because he has so many leather coats, jackets and shoes. But he looks hot. I want to look good for him. So I kind of stepped it up a bit."

On her singing voice: "We sing all the time. He’s always rolling his eyeballs because I’m in the wrong key. But I know he’s laughing about it too. So I’m not a singer — who cares? Not everyone is Seal!"

She also reveals her five rules for succeeding in business.

Runway to Red Carpet: Marchesa

Thandie Newton arrived at the LA premiere of Rocknrolla looking amazing. The British actress wore a strapless mini Marchesa Spring 2009 dress, which looked better on her, than when it was presented at New York Fashion Week last month. It looks like the actress was wrapped in tulle and lace to complete this beautiful dress. She accessorized with pointy heels, and a silver Chanel clutch. I can't explain how much I love this dress on Thandie. She looks flawless.

Runway to Red Carpet: Pamella Roland

Eva Longoria made an appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson looking gorgeous wearing a strapless Pamella Roland Spring 2009 white and grey ribbon striped organza dress She wore her dress with red Valentino pumps with bow.
The star had a very embarrassing moment during her interview, in which she was showing off her breath-taking heels only to reveal the price tag on the bottom.
The host Craig Ferguson was shocked to learn that the shoes cost $695.

Who Wore Black Halo Better?

Vanessa Minnillo was the first to wear this Black Halo one shoulder mini 'Jackie' belted dress in maroon, when she appeared with her co-stars, Kim Kardashian and Carmen Electra at a taping for fuse's "Boys of Summer" to promote Disaster Movie.

Vanessa Hudgens wore a jade version to the High School Musical 3: Senior Year Madrid Photocall. She wore her dress with black peep-toe booties.

Kristin Cavallari opted for the stand out primrose yellow version, when she attended the LA premiere of Max Payne.

I would pick Vanessa Minnillo's maroon colour, but I think Vanessa Hudgens wears it best.

Ashley Tisdale in Reem Acra

Sporting darker locks, the young actress looked incredibly beautiful in a stunning ivory plunged neck Reem Acra gown with a embellished bodice. She completed her look with teardrop earrings.
