Sarah Jessica Parker wore Valentino to the Sex and the City 2 premiere at Radio City Music Hall in New York City last night. It was a one-shoulder canary yellow gown to complement her flowing golden locks.
Kristin Davis was pretty in pink in her Jean Desses gown for Decades. It was a beautiful column dress with wonderful ruching. Kristin wore a loose chignon that was regal and it complemented her dress perfectly.
Cynthia Nixon was glamorous in Carolina Herrera. The fitted strapless gown looked great on the actress, and it was one of her best red carpet moments. Her shoulder-length strawberry blonde curls was also a good choice for the evening. A pair of earrings and an evening bag were her sole accessories.
Kim Cattrall sparkled in Naeem Khan. Her slinky gold gown was bejeweled with sequined stars throughout. Kim smartly opted for minimal jewelry and a beautiful evening bag.

We can all make a difference one bag at a time.

Her collection is complete with rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings. It is a mix of modern and vintage inspired pieces that are beautiful and graceful, much as the name indicates.

Red Carpet at 2010 Golden Globes:
Kate Hudson gets our best dressed vote because of the shape and structure of her gown. The actress was one of four clients styled by Rachel Zoe at the Globes, and she had us talking about the gown, not her personal life. Her gown stood out because it was a visual delight, the eyes wanted to feast on each origami fold.
Drew Barrymore’s Versace Atelier gown was beautifully draped and beaded. The nude color was also on trend. Many questioned the embellishments attached to the shoulder and hip, but I say that Drew has the personality to pull it off. All I can see here is glitz and glamour, and that’s just what the Golden Globes ordered.
Emily Blunt’s Dolce & Gabanna gown was elegant and sweet on the red carpet. The bustier top, fitted skirt and a slight mermaid bottom provided the actress with a beautiful silhouette. The gown followed both the ruffled and color trend of the evening. She was accompanined by her fiance John Krasinski in Prada.
January Jones was loe’ly in Lanvin. The back cut-out and perfectly sculpted ruffles make this gown a stand-out instead of relegating it as ‘just another black dress’. It was deceptively simple with intricate detailing.
Chloe Sevigny made the list because she selected this Valentino gown that many women would not have attempted on the red carpet. It’s a beautiful gown that challenges the narrow standards of beauty. The gown needed a woman who had a strong sense of self, and it found that in Chloe.
The fashion world is enamored with Lady Gaga, and we can hardly contain our excitement when Gaga meets Oprah. She talks to the queen of daytime and gives an amazing performance. Gaga wore an embellished one-shoulder jumpsuit and wore her hair with spikey bangs with a bun in back.
Gaga revealed that she prefers to drop the Lady from her name, and be called Gaga. We are also treated to backstage footage of her concert; it’s refreshing to see how involved she is making sure she gives her audience the very best performance.
The audience received heartbeat headphones from the music star. Oprah appreciated the gift as well, she explained she wore them to the gym and hoped someone would ask about them.
Lady Gaga performed songs from her album Fame Monster. She gave us a sample of The Fame, Bad Romance, and Speechless. The six time Grammy nominated singer delivered a thrilling performance. She shows us that she’s clearly an artist with much to say.
The rumors surfaced yesterday, and confirmation came today that Sarah Jessica Parker is the new creative consultant at Halston. We named SJP to our Rollcall list this week because of this daring move. The house is co-owned by Harvey Weinstein who revived it in 2008. They are betting that Ms. Parker can put her fashionable stamp on Halston because the actress is beloved for her enviable style. She often wows us on the red carpet. We can’t get enough of her as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City who is unquestionably stylish. Even so, many question her new role at the fashion house. The concern stems from the performance of previous fashion advisers at other houses who did not fare too well. Inspite of that, SJP’s appointment is very intriguing, and I am eager to see her influence on the collections. Needless to say, all eyes will certainly be on Halston during New York Fashion Week in February.
The fashion world woke up to the news that Jimmy Choo had joined forces with Ugg. To some, the news shocked the conscience. Is this a good idea? Thoughts like, ‘don’t Ugg with Choo’ did come to mind. Jimmy Choo crafts perfectly delicate shoe confections. Why would Tamara Mellon team up with Ugg who makes not so delicate confections. Then visions of a comfortable pair of stilettos started dancing in my head. We know that Uggs are undeniably comfortable, this comes not from personal knowledge, but word on the street. Further, any woman who wears high heels has had her feet file a complaint or two over said shoes. Could it be possible that Jimmy Choo could lend its beautiful craftmanship to Ugg to create shoes we’ll actually covet? We will find out in October when the collection is launched. The line will range from $595 to $795, apparently beauty and comfort does not come cheap.
