Best Dressed of the Week of January 23rd through the 28th
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.
