Who Wore Marley Better?

Kim Kardashian ‘duped’ me into thinking her white blazer was from Balmain when it was actually from Marley.

She wore her blazer with a black mini Balmain skirt, a printed top, and Jil Sander black patent heels when she walked the red carpet for the LA premiere of “The Taking of Pelham 123″.

Rihanna recently stepped out in New York surprisingly wearing the same Marley blazer, when is known for wearing a lot of Balmain.

Her blazer was worn with a grey tee, silver accessories, a heavily embellished Prada clutch, J Brand tie-dye skinny jeans and Maison Martin Margiela ankle boots.

Runway To Photoshoot - Lauren Conrad in Moschino

Lauren Conrard was seen in West Hollywood on Friday looking fabulous for a photo shoot with Harper’s Bazaar.

She was wearing a brunette wig, which I totally love as it really brightens up her face. I hopes she considers this colour for a permanent look.

She was seen carrying many Marc Jacobs bags on her shoot which will fool you into thinking she was wearing Marc Jacobs, but she was actually wearing an embellished jacket from Moschino’s Fall 2009 collection.

Dark navy jeans and lusty worthy heels complete the look.

12th Annual Shanghai International Film Festival

Halle Berry looked breathtakingly beautiful wearing a one-shouldered lilac Marchesa chiffon gown. Does this women ever have a day off not looking gorgeous?

The outstanding gown had silver crystal embroidery details on the bodice, which matched her bangles.

The actress is still working her sexy short do, but will eventually shave it off completely for her new movie “Nappily Ever After”. Brave girl.

It only Monday morning and we have two contenders for Best Dressed Of The Week.

Women In Film's 2009 Crystal and Lucy Awards

Excuse me whilst I pick my chin off the floor.

I’ve waited my whole lifetime for Jennifer Aniston to wow me, and she does wearing this Prada Spring 2009 silver metallic crushed dress.

What I love about this look the most is the confidence she exudes. It’s oozing from every pore and for me that’s more captivating than the colour and the cut.

Jen could have gone for the safer runway dress as it’s in her favourite colour - Black, but she not only opted for the silver dress, but a shorten silver dress plus she didn’t press it like Nicole Kidman did.

This may not sit well with Jennifer Aniston’s loyal fans as this is such a huge departure from her usual style, but I love it.

Oh and I hate to be crude, but where did those twins sprout from?

37th Annual AFI Lifetime Achievement Awards

Kim Kardashian for me the worst dressed at this event. She did a complete 180 from her previous looks.

I love her hair and make-up, but the Ports 1961 strapless gown is way too gaudy for my liking. The runway version wouldn’t have suited her either.

Who Wore Matthew Williamson?

What the…?? Rihanna and Beyonce appear to be playing tag with what they wear.

Only 2 weeks ago I featured Beyonce vs. Rihanna wearing Helmut Lang. This time Beyonce is following Rihanna wearing Matthew Williamson.

Rihanna was the first to wear this Matthew Williamson gathered leather coat as a dress when she shopped at Intermix in New York last month.

With her trademark crazy hairstyle, she wore her dress/coat with black boots, shades and reptile accessories.

Beyonce wore the same coat as a coat, when she was spotted departing London’s Heathrow airport this week.

Her look was completed with superstar shades, a Sretsis clara tiered dress, and Gucci Iman ankle strap sandals.

Monte Carlo Television Festival

Kim Kardashian’s first look at this festival was a black Lela Rose sleeveless dress with a contrast grosgrain belt and a disc hem.

Her sophisticated look was paired with black Jil Sander heels.

She showed off her womanly curves in an ultra-feminine one-shouldered dusky pink dress for her second look. Nude Louboutin’s completed my favourite look of the three.

Kim brought out the sunshine wearing a flirty Ina Soltani strapless yellow dress with a ruffled bodice, which she also wore with nude Louboutin’s.

You will notice in all of these looks that Kim doesn’t wear any accessories, she shines on her own. I’m glad to see her return to a more respectable style of dressing after a slight detour to tackyville.

Kim Kardashian's White Jacket was from Marley, Not Balmin

When I saw a Kim Kardashian at “The Taking Of Pelham 123″ LA premiere, I said that she was wearing a white Balmain jacket.

But was she???

Intermix has a white bold shouldered jacket on their website, which bares a very strong resemblance to the Balmain jacket.

On second glance, it’s clear that Kim’s jacket is the Marley version as they both have rounded edges, and the Balmain jacket is square.

Easy mistake to make, but at least we have all found a cheaper alternative.

Handbag ~ Pick of the Day: Dolce & Gabbana Miss Rouche Distressed Tote and Satchel

I really want to like the Dolce & Gabbana Miss Rouche Distressed Tote. It’s punky, edgy, soft, and has a leopard-print lining. It’s not over-designed or overly complicated. The leather is simply left baggy instead of pulled tight at the seams. I bet it’s light, too. But something about this says ‘garbage bag’ to me, and I just can’t shake that thought when I look at it. Perhaps it’s a bit too wrinkly. Maybe it’s the extra strap (which does not look removeable - a pet peeve of mine) that’s coloring my perception. Does this ever happen to any of you? Do you ever look at a bag and really WANT to be impressed, and you just can’t muster it? Buy through Saks for $1,995.

Or maybe it’s just that it’s black. The very similar Miss Rouche Distressed Satchel is hitting a homerun for me (ok, well, sort of), but it comes in a greyish white that makes the purse not quite so…garbage bag. You can also see the slouchy details much more clearly with the lighter color, and the bothersome extra shoulder strap appears to be something that can be removed (thank you Jebus). A much better effort, all in all. It’s the kind of thing that I would be excited to carry - odd, unexpected, not everyone’s taste. I don’t just WANT to like it - I DO like it. Buy through Saks for $2,195.

D.S Pick of the Day: Christian Louboutin Candy Lace and Patent Spike Pumps

I love their last and the red patent, but then things get complicated! The mesh lace, the grosgrain trim and the gold hardware are a little too busy! It almost make me nauseated! These shoes remind me of a bad Telenovela!
