I will give a quick version of the red carpet. Amy Adams wore a white Herve Leroux gown that fit her like a glove and was sexy yet understated. Claire Danes wore a custom Louis Vuitton and looked like she was wearing a painting by Monet. I loved the drama of Amber Rileys black one shoulder mermaid gown. Hilary Swank looked stunning and ethereal in Atelier Versace. Red Carpet newbie Jennifer Lawrence wore a hot pink Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2011 gown. Julianna Marguilies wore a sleek and sexy goddess gown by Yves St Laurent. Kyra Sedgwick wore a va va va voom Vintage Theirry Mugler gown. Lea Michele redeemed herself in Oscar de la Renta Spring 2011 RTW. Mila Kunis was my best dressed of the night in Alexander McQueen Resort 2011. Natalie Portman wore a stunning custom Azzaro gown which was my best dressed runner up. Nicole Kidman almost got it right wearing a STUNNING Nina Ricci Pre-Fall 2011 gown but screwed it up with a hideous necklace. Sofie Vergara looked elegant but sexy in blue Roberto Cavalli. Tina Fey wore RED OMG SHE WORE RED Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2011. Annette Benning sparkled in Tony Ward Couture and added more sparkle with Neil Lane Diamonds. Helena Bohnam Carter created a bitch stole my look moment wearing a Marc Jacobs Resort 2011 dress that Frieda Pinto wore last year. Rosario Dawson wore J. Mendel and Neil Lane. Angie Harmon wore Monique Lhullier gown that made her look like she was swallowed by a couple dozen pink flamingos. Eva Longoria gave us uber sexy and alot of double stick tape in Georges Hobeika. Meilissa Leo wore Randi Rahm. Julia Stiles refuses to wear color in a Monique Lhullier Resort 2011 gown that was pink on the runway and my choice for Sara Barellies to wear to the Grammys guess ill have to find something else. Louise Roe was the style commentator for E! and she looked right in place on the red carpet in Tadashi Shoji. Hailee Steinfeld wore a cute and age appropriate Modified Prada Spring 2011 RTW gown. Modern Families Sarah Hyland wore a custom MaxMara gown. Glee's Dianna Agrom wore a Vintage Chanel Haute Couture gown paired with Salvatore Ferragamo shoes and Fred Leighton jewels. January Jones donned a black and gold lace Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2011 gown. A very pregnant Jane Krakowski wore a custom Badgley Mishka embellished cocktail dress. I am not a fan of Kate Marra on the red carpet and her choice of a Herve Leger Spring 2011 RTW gown doesnt help her case at all. Jayma Mays gave Old Hollywood in Jenny Packham Spring 2011 RTW with Neil Lane diamonds. Christiana Hendricks also redeamed herself from thr globes wearing a L'Wren Scott Fall 2010 gown. Glee actress Heather Morris wore Romona Kevesa. Cara Buono wore J. Mendel Fall 2010 RTW, and Edie Falco wore the Carolina Herrera Resort 2011 gown that I wanted Sofia Vergara to wear to the Golden Globes. Well that is it for tonight, this will be followed up with a video of the good, bad, and indifferent tomorrow!
I love that Nicki Minaj doesn't take fashion to seriously and wears over the top looks but keeps it tame for the most part unlike others like Lady Gaga. I saw this Christian Siriano Spring 2011 RTW gown, she looks like a hip-hop queen.
Here is a video of her performance of Right Thru Me on SNL.
British Actress wore one of my favorite designers Elie Saab to the G'Day USA Black Tie Gala. The Dress is from the Fall 2010 RTW collection. I love that she brought drama to a red carpet full of cocktail dresses.
Alexa Chung attended the Chanel Spring 2011 Couture show, I will say that I am not usually a fan of Alexa's style, but in this Chanel Fall 2010 Couture dress paired with Prada shoes, I love this dress and the way she is working it with class and a lot of it.
Amy Adams was in attendance of the 2011 Producers Guild Awards. She looked very elegant wearing this Andrew Gn Spring 2010 RTW dress paired with a Kotur clutch, Christian Louboutin shoes, ans Sutrs jewelry.
Diane Kruger had a very busy week. This Giambattista Valli Spring 2011 RTW dress is just one of the 3 looks that made it onto my best dressed and she had one or two more red carpet appearances this week. She wore this to the Giambattista Valli Paris boutique opening party.
Look #2 on the list from Diane is this super edgy and sexy Gucci Spring 2011 RTW dress paired with Gucci shoes. This was a BIG risk and it totally payed off for her. I love that she isn't afraid of much on the red carpet.
Now we know for sure that Diane is close to Karl Lagerfeld. This Chanel Spring 2011 Couture dress had not been off the model for 3 days before Diane (who attended the show) ran away with it and wore it to the 2011 Sidaction Gala Dinner paired with Jimmy Choo peep toes. Of the three I can't pick which is my favorite they are all different and amazing in their own ways.
Emmy Rossum wore this DKNY Spring 2011 RTW ensemble to the Genlux Magazine Issue Launch Party thrown in her favor as she was the cover model. I love that she stood out in casual wear.
Jessica Alba also attended the Gucci Dinner. She wore this Old Hollywood style custom made Gucci dress which she paired with a Gucci clutch.
Now I have sort of not become a fan of the Herve Leger bandage dress that everyone seems to wear but this Herve Leger Spring 2011 RTW dress that Kerry Washington wore to the Producers Guild of America Awards just looks so refined and elegant that I can't not like it.
Leighton Meester looks STUNNING here. She has been trying to distance herself from her Gossip Girl character Blair Waldorf, so she wears clothing that the costumers for the show would never choose for her character, and this does not always work. But in the case of this Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2011 gown she ROCKS it so much better than the model to the LA premiere of her new movie "The Roommate." This gown was paired with Brian Atwood shoes and Harry Winston diamonds.
Olivia Wilde gave us not her norm at the Gucci Dinner in Paris this week with red carpet heavyweights Diane Kruger and Jessica Alba wearing cocktail ensembles, Olivia took a HUGE risk in wearing this Spring 2011 Gucci RTW jumpsuit. I think that this had the chance of going way wrong but Olivia styled this look to perfection with Gucci sandals and carrying a Gucci clutch.
Zoe Saldana attended the Shape Whats To Come event during the Tribeca Film Festival to support her sister (pictured). She Rocked this Alexander McQueen Resort 2011 jacket that she styled to be the focus of her ensemble and I love it.
It seemed to me that Karl Lagerfeld designed his Spring 2011 Couture collection for Chanel had two different clients in mind. 1) The typical Chanel client who is the older more sophisticated woman like Anna Wintour, and 2) little girls whose daddies have lots and lots of money. I can not find many pieces that I really like. I love the gown that I choose for Natalie Portman (see my SAG Awards Predictions, the ruffly over the top cocktail dress, and the pink tiered strong shouldered cocktail dress. I personally think that Chanel should stick to what they do best and not do Haute Couture t-shirts and jeans. I personally hate most of this collection but again still have some a few pieces that I would like to see hit the red carpet on Diane Kruger because I don't think that anyone else can take on this collection.
These headpieces look like something from an opera costume and I really don't like them, but I think that these gowns have a lot of red carpet potential. Celebrities like Florence Welch will rock this collections eccentricity. I love all of the details and the pops of colors here and there.
I'm sorry Mr Armani for the words I am about to say. This Collection looks like a cheap 1980's mall collection. The colors are AMAZING, and there were a few good pieces in this collection such as the aqua suit, the red cocktail dress, and the gray gown that is just calling Anne Hathaway to put it on. The leggings had to be the worst part of the collection the choice of fabric is AWFUL. These are most of the saving grace pieces of this collection. Hope to see Giorgio back to his best in July for the Fall 2011 Couture show.
John Galliano every few seasons creates his couture collection based on the origonal ideas that Christian Dior founded the house on in 1947 with the new look. He only takes that idea and makes it even more couture and over the top. There are many red carpet worthy dresses and I need Dita Von Teese to wear almost anything in this collection because it SO suits her style.
So what is your verdict on this collection genius or hideous?
