Fashion Review : 01/10/11

New “American Idol” judge Jennifer Lopez showed off her signature curves on New Year’s Eve in a sexy sequined $2,500 Herve Leger bandage dress upon arriving at Love — The Beatles Cirque du Soleil show — at The Mirage in Las Vegas, Nevada. Caramel-colored locks, stacked bracelets, a diamond cocktail ring, and mirrored peep-toes completed her flawless look.

Meanwhile, at Marquee nightclub in Sin City’s swanky new Cosmopolitan hotel, former “City” star Whitney Port arrived for the Jay-Z/Coldplay New Year’s Eve concert in a fashion-forward Jill Stuart frock, statement necklace, and strappy stilettos.

Also spotted sporting a similar shade … Taraji P. Henson (“Hustle & Flow”), who rocked a $215 ruffled Elizabeth and James micro mini and $800 gold Yves St. Laurent sandals.

2010 was the year we wanted everything in Drew Barrymore’s wardrobe, but now it seems 2011 is shaping up to be even better! Barely out of the style spotlight, the actress has stormed into the new year working a fashion-forward zingy orange gown from Jil Sander’s lust-some SS11 collection. And sticking to the rules of colour, Drew let the dress do all the work, with a simple black Hunting Season clutch and loose, fuss-free, dip-dyed locks completing the look.

Lauren Conrad looked appropriately easy and breezy in a draped Quail minidress for Covergirl’s 50th anniversary celebration in West Hollywood. Conrad embodied classic California glam, even as a brunette! The designer accented her soft beige dress with Jimmy Choo gladiators and a stack of diamond bracelets from Dana Rebecca Designs.

LC’s former “Hills” co-star, Whitney Port followed closely behind in a pale blue frock and a smile. Sparkling footwear and a gold clutch completed her pretty look.

Presenter Cat Deeley mingled with Hollywood’s finest at the CoverGirl Anniversary party in LA wearing a stunning black sequinned vintage style gown. She wore her trademark long locks in soft, centre-parted waves.

There’s no stopping Taylor Swift these days when it comes to stunning style! The gorgeous singer posed for pics at the CoverGirl 50th Anniversary celebrations in a show-stopping sequinned black sweetheart Mark & James dress teamed with strappy D&G heels. She added some extra sparkle with Neil Lane jewels and a slick of red lippy for a final flourish. We love it!

For the People’s Choice Awards, Taylor Swift complemented a blush J. Mendel design with strappy nude sandals and coral, diamond and pearl Neil Lane jewelry. Sweet has never looked so sexy. Swift’s ballerina-ready dress seemed to defy gravity with its sultry illusion neckline.

Kim Kardashian went retro for the People’s Choice Awards in a metallic Catherine Malandrino dress, gold Rina Limor necklace, Amrapali studs, a structured Chanel clutch and Christian Louboutin peep-toes.

Twilight mega-star Kristen Stewart was a veritable golden girl at the People’s Choice Awards in a spangly minidress and lusciously-loose locks. K-Stew, who attended the ceremony on the arm of her on-and off-screen beau Robert Pattinson, picked up the coveted award for Favourite Movie Actress. Meanwhile, her latest film, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, was nominated Favourite Drama Movie and Favourite Movie over all. Proof positive that everything this girl touches turns to gold.

Emma Roberts worked a ruffled Dior LBD to perfection at the People’s Choice Awards, which she teamed with a pair of Brian Atwood’s blush satin Maniac pumps. We heart!

Minka Kelly arrived at the People’s Choice Awards in a lace Vivienne Westwood bustier mini accessorized with suede Brian Atwood pumps and Neil Lane diamonds.

Black Swan star Mila Kunis showed off her style prowess at the People’s Choice Awards in a gorgeous olive-hued strapless ruffled dress by J.Mendel. Keeping her look pared-down but very pretty, the actress showed off her silky, luscious locks wearing them in a smooth side-parting.

Selena Gomez’s first of two outfits at the People’s Choice Awards was this delicate frill-shouldered number. Nude is a hot colour for the new season and the blush shade of her dress complemented her dark locks and olive skin perfectly. The teen sensation, who picked up the gong for Favourite Break-Out Artist, later changed into a flowing maxi-dress for her performance of “A Year Without Rain” with her band, The Scene.

Selena Gomez performed at the People’s Choice Awards in a cascading butterfly-print Irina Shabayeva gown, Isharya hoops and strappy metallic platform heels.

Red heels and a Maia N. clutch were colorful additions to Malin Akerman’s pretty pleated J. Mendel sheath and Neil Lane diamonds at the People’s Choice Awards.

Gossip Girl Leighton Meester warmed up for her stunning appearance at the People’s Choice Awards by first hitting the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. The gorgeous actress wore a simple but chic Versace Resort 2011 sleeveless dress with cute patterned pocket as she promoted her new movie Country Strong.

Leighton’s muted grey dress and Brian Atwood pumps were given a shot of colour at the People’s Choice Awards thanks to a coral-coloured corsage and matching drop earrings. Make like Leighton and inject your winter wardrobe with a neon accessory or two to get you in the mood for spring.

Leighton launched the Portraits of Hope Art Project in a Missoni graphic print mini and cardigan, suede platform booties and a structured tote.

Selita Ebanks rang in the new year in a fitted celadon mini and sparkling silver accessories.

Selita chose an asymmetric metallic design and black pumps for The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas grand opening.

Emmanuelle Chriqui attended a New Years Eve bash in a sheer beaded Bird by Juicy Couture blouse, skinny Habitual Denim leggings and platform booties. Chriqui made her monochromatic black party-ready. The actress played with texture from her flowing locks down to her suede heels.

Kristin Davis arrived at the grand opening of The Cosmopolitan in a flowing violet Prada dress and nude platform heels.

Emmy Rossum celebrated the grand opening of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas in a formfitting blush Julien Macdonald cocktail dress with gold Jimmy Choo sandals, a Misela clutch and Carla Amorim jewelry. What a way to kick off the new year! Rossum looked stunning and sexy in a perfectly tailored fringe design.

Emmy celebrated the grand opening of Marquee at The Cosmopolitan in a modern Bottega Veneta nude dress accessorized with a Swarovski clutch, Coomi rose quartz earrings and strappy Jimmy Choo sandals.

Beautiful Blake Lively hit the Las Vegas party scene with fellow fashionista Florence Welch in a pair of killer sequinned leggings and plunging Christian Louboutin booties. The Gossip Girl kept the rest of her outfit subdued to allow the cobalt trousers to really shine. Perfect for Sin City!

At Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, Jennifer Hudson accentuated her shrinking waistline in a red-hot dress, while fellow diva/Black Eyed Peas frontwoman Fergie stepped forward in a strapless studded mini, which featured a tulle train.

Another fan of brilliant black dresses is former “Firefly” star Summer Glau, who impressed in a textured head-turner and fab cocktail ring at the premiere of NBC’s superhero drama “The Cape.”

Ellen Pompeo suited it up in a sleek black pantsuit and a slicked-back bun at the grand opening of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

Z100 Jingle Ball 2010

Katy Perry showed off her bubbly personality at Z100’s Jingle Ball. The “Teenage Dream” singer hit the red carpet in a Nutcracker costume complete with Louboutin over-the-knee-boots. Too Cute!

A red carpet’s never complete with out Kim Kardashian. The reality star showed off her killer curves at Z100’s Jingle Ball in a cream cocktail dress and sparkling pumps. This signature look never gets old!

Selena Gomez rocked a see-through black top covered with red scarf, sparkle mini shorts, leggings, and studded footwear at the red carpet.

Selena slipped into an Asos Asymmetric Corset Maxi dress while performed her hits “Round and Round,” “A Year Without Rain,” and “Naturally” at the show.

Emily Osment wore a gold shimmery mini dress, which she paired with leggings and black pumps. Emily played it fun with her swept side do and red lips. She completed her look with black necklace and bracelet, also studded ring.

Hayley Williams wore a vintage-style black velvet dress with her B.O.Y. cardigan, sparkly silver tights and pink socks, and Dr. Martens boots.

Hayley wore a sleeveless Christmas sweater with her Dogpile red plaid pants and Dr. Marten boots while performed with her band, Paramore.

Kim Kardashian : Bissmor Watch ‘Glamorous’

Making for quite the active evening, Kim Kardashian tended to a full schedule of happenings in New York City on Friday night (December 10).

The E! reality star kicked things off by joining Simon Huck and Jonathan Cheban at the Beauty & Essex Grand Opening event.

Kim Kardashian has been promoting everything from diet supplements to Charmin Toilet roll, but last night she was out to promote her own Bissmor Watch Collection in LA on Tuesday (December 7).

Many of you favour her street style, but she looked stunning wearing an onyx velvet Rachel Roy Fall 2010 gown. It showed off her gorgeous figure and I love the addition of the black waistband to further emphasis her hour-glass figure.

She completed her look with a classy updo, diamond earrings and of course a watch from her own collection.

Kim Kardashian : Digitally Dying ‘Darling’

Kim Kardashian lied in a coffin to help raise awareness about World AIDS Day and money for the Keep a Child Alive charity.

The 30-year-old reality star is just one of the many celebs participating in the Digital Life Sacrifice event, where stars will stop communicating via Twitter and Facebook until $1 million is donated.

“Kim sacrificed her digital life to give real life to millions of others affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India,” says the ad. “Visit BuyLife.org or text ‘KIM’ to ‘90999’ to buy her life now.”

“You’re always texting your friends,” says Alicia Keys, founder of Keep a Child Alive. “Now, you’re going to text to Buy Life.”

Elijah Wood, Serena Williams, Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Jay Sean, and Ryan Seacrest also involved in the campaign.

7th Annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen stepped out in their granny gear yet again for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards held at Skylight Soho in New York City Monday night.

Kim Kardashian looked like an Egyptian queen in her blue Zac Posen gown. She and her older sister Kourtney really are taking Manhattan!

Carey Mulligan, 25, burst into tears on the red carpet — not because she aged herself drastically in a sequined Chanel dress and dowdy suede ankle boots, but because she received a call informing her she had landed the role of Daisy Buchanan in director Baz Luhrman’s upcoming adaptation of “The Great Gatsby.”

Anna Paquin donned a simple silhouette in her Richard Chai cocktail dress.

“Gossip Girl’s” Leighton Meester didn’t disappoint in an edgy Prabal Gurung dress, which she paired with funky Roger Vivier booties.

Another “gossip,” Blake Lively, oozed sex appeal in a rather sheer, form-fitting Chanel number. Eat your heart out, boys!

Christina Ricci was cute as a button in a Peter Som dress, bangin’ hair, and bright red lips. Too bad she paired her fun frock with heavy black tights!

Look Of The Week : Kim, Natalie, Carla, Halle, Hathaway, Alexa, Sarah, Beyonce, Krysten, Emma, Anna, Bosworth

Kim Kardashian chose a ’50s-chic gray sheath (with lace kick pleats!) for a Charmin event.  The entrepreneur should always go retro! The waist-enhancing silhouette of the vintage-inspired number flattered the multitasking star’s timeless curves.

Trust Natalie Portman to pick the simplest outfit and still be the most stunning gal in the room. The Black Swan actress was gorgeous in a little white dress with sheer overlay and bow-tie belt by John Galliano for Dior. A pair of black pumps and smokey eyes was all she needed to add drama to the look.

Carla Gugino stole the spotlight at the Los Angeles premiere of her new action flick, “Faster,” in a shimmering Georges Chakra Couture dress, matching peep-toes, and chic updo. Her outfit is a bit bold (and a bit ice skater-y), but we love it!

Looking radiant in white, Halle Berry wore a stunning strapless dress by Pamella Roland to the screening of her new movie Frankie & Alice in New York. A simple diamond jewel encrusted clutch was all she needed to add a little gleaming polish to her look.

Across the country at NYC’s highly anticipated “Love and Other Drugs” premiere, Anne Hathaway took a risk (that totally paid off) by sporting this cute ‘n’ classy Valentino dress, which featured floral tiers and an enchanting bow.

Alexa Chung moved away from her trademark preppy chic look for something a little more ladylike as she attended the premiere of Love and Other Drugs. The gorgeous Brit worked a delicate silk floral Valentino SS11 dress teamed with pretty bow heels.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s a lady who knows what works for her, and a tailored Vivienne Westwood dress was as-ever, the perfect fit at the Harry Potter New York premiere. The Sex and the City star elongated her petite frame with a volumous skirt that sits just above the ankle to reveal her eye-catching Nicholas Kirkwood heels.

Beyonce Knowles looked marvelous in a beaded Naeem Khan mini and strappy Christian Louboutins while attending a screening of “I Am … World Tour” at the School of Visual Arts Theater in New York City.

Krysten Ritter arrived at the BFF & Baby wrap party in Hollywood wearing a silver sequin Reem Acra mini, Carla Amorim earrings and Valentino peep-toe heels.

Emma Roberts tucked her Zac Posen printed blouse into a pair of the designer’s form-fitting bondage pants for the boutiques.com launch party in New York.

Anna Paquin certainly knows how to work a body-con dress. The True Blood star, who hit the Boutique.com party with her new hubby and co-star Stephen Moyer, looked sexy in a fitted metallic shift with geometric panels. She teamed it with Hollywood’s go-to shoe: the peep-toe Louboutins.

Kate Bosworth got all dolled up for the premiere of The Warrior’s Way in a white floral and lace frock by Erdem and dainty, strappy metallic sandals. The fashion-savvy actress matched the retro-chic look with a vintage-style hairdo and a bright pink lipstick. Swoon!

Launch Of “2BHAPPY” Jewelry Collection

White dresses are all the rage these days, and Beyonce rocked a particularly fashionable one as she strutted her stuff at the Lorraine Schwartz jewelry launch. The stylish songstress perfectly paired her Antonio Berardi beauty with Cesare Paciotti sandals and an assortment of silver bracelets.

“Gossip Girl” fashionista Blake Lively made a statement in a nude fringed Versace Spring 2011 gown. Love her chunky bangles, but we’re not sure she should have pared that delicate dress with such heavy Christian Louboutin heels.

Reality starlet Kim Kardashian rocked the red carpet sans her rumored new beau Gabriel Aubrey, going solo in a black bustier mini with matching tights and heels.
