Versace Spring 2010

Versace Spring 2010 Collection

Rating: ★★★★½

Versace’s Spring 2010 collection was a fashion interpretation of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland as Donatella said she’d been inspired by the fantasyland in the film. We had geometric prints dipped in pastel candy colors, paired with Versace’s quintessential slinky, sexy silhouettes and completed with giga high platforms which – even by stiletto lover standards – should be quite a challenge to walk in.

After being disappointed by the Fall 2009 collection I am so happy to see Donatella return to her glory days. Gotta love her for designing clothes that make you want to hit the gym, right?

2009 Emmy Awards – Best Dressed

by Profashionelle on September 21, 2009 · 1 comment

Rose Byrne, Chloë Sevigny, Olivia Wilde, Sandra Oh, Debra Messing and January Jones are the best dressed celebrities at the 2009 Emmy Awards

As I already said earlier Rose Byrne was my absolute favorite at the Emmy Awards yesterday. The stunning nude Valentino tulle gown was the perfect choice for the Australian actress. Perfection!

Chloé Sevigny was a close runner-up for best dressed. Her delicate Isaac Mizrahi Resort 2010 polka dot one shoulder dress was an unexpected choice, but I adore it on Chloé. Her signature red lips were the perfect finishing touch to her elegant look.

Olivia Wilde looked like an ice princess from a fairy tale in her exquisite embroidered Marchesa gown. The open back and the intricate embroideries fascinated me and Olivia worked the red carpet like a pro. Gotta love her!

I think I’ve never mentioned Sandra Oh on this blog before, but now that I’ve seen her in gold embroidered Marchesa Resort 2010 strapless column gown, it was about time. Such a great look for her!

A redhead wearing red on a red carpet? That coul’ve gone horribly wrong, but luckily it played out well in Debra Messing‘s case. Her asymmetrical red Michael Kors gown was beaded with Swarovski crystals and Debra completed her sparkling dress with stunning Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

January Jones, like Blake Lively, tends to turn to Versace when it comes to big events. And who can blame her when it works so, so well? I love the geometric bodice of the dress.

Who was the best dressed at the 2009 Emmy Awards?

2009 Emmy Awards – Blake Lively in Versace

by Profashionelle on September 21, 2009 · 0 comments

Blake Lively wearing a red Versace Fall 2009 plunging dress at the 2009 Emmy Awards

Rating: ★★★★☆

Blake Lively opted for Versace as she usually does for the big events. The Gossip Girl actress wore a sexy ravishing red dress from Versace’s Fall 2009 collection which had a dangerously low plunging neckline and a front slit going up to the hip. A pair of nude Louboutin peep-toes and braided hair completed Blake’s ensemble. There is no denying that Blake looks amazing, but I wish she’d tone down the sexy kitten and go for more edgier looks. What do you think of Blake’s Emmy look?

Costume Institute Gala 2009 – Worst Dressed

by Profashionelle on May 5, 2009 · 0 comments

Keep hitting the F5 on your keyboard from time to time as I will be updating this post throughout the night. Best Dressed are here.

Rachel Weisz

Rating: ★½☆☆☆

It pains me to put Rachel Weisz in here, but she got it all wrong. Her lilac strapless Vera Wang tulle gown totally washed her out, the make-up was waaaay too dark (OMG!@ berry lips) and why, oh why, is that yellow fabric peeking out from under the hem? Sorry, Rachel, you can do so much better.

Kate Beckinsale

Rating: ★½☆☆☆

I’ve had enough with Kate Beckinsale. Her Marchesa Fall 2009 navy tulle gown was, as you would expect from Kate, over the top and unnecessary. I have never liked this dress in the first place, but seeing it on Kate makes it even worse because she ALWAYS plays it safe and never moves out of her comfort zone.

Rihanna wearing a black satin Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 tuxedo suit with voluminous shoulders

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Rihanna, please stop trying so hard. Don’t get me wrong, I love the runway look, but Rihanna makes it look so desperate for attention and so silly I can’t stand it.

I also find it always were amusing when at prestigious events such as the Costume Institute Gala where women are expected to wear beautiful, feminine princess dresses there are always 1 or 2 witty female individuals who opt out of this dress code. These women think they will come off so edgy and anti-establishment when they wear something super masculine like a suit or a tuxedo for example. GENIUS, girl! I bet no one else EVER had the same idea.

Leighton Meester

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Imagine Leighton Meester‘s outfit without the leggings and you have a Best Dressed candidate. Leighton’s head-to-toe Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 look is a perfect example when too much becomes too bad. Such a shame!

Rating: ★★½☆☆

Anne Hathaway channelled 60s Jackie O chic and me no likey. I love Anne just as anybody else, but this eggplant Marc Jacobs bubbly dress does absolutely nothing for her. Not digging the hair and shoes as well.

Emma Roberts

Rating: ★★½☆☆

I know a lot of you will not agree with me for putting Emma Roberts on the Worst Dressed list, but let me try to get my point across. I absolutely ADORE this red bubble-shaped Atelier Versace Spring 2009 mini dress. In fact it’s one of my favorite from that collection. But you can tell from a mile away that this dress was the wrong choice for Emma. It’s a dress for a SUPERMODEL! And even then I think it would be quite tricky to pull it off because of the shape. Emma looks weird and unsure of herself, the dress owns her. Not good.

Why did Donatella give it away for Emma? I mean, come on! I would have LOVED to see it on Gisele, Linda or Naomi. They would have done this dress justice.
