This week of course it was Haute Couture time in Paris, and Gucci held a party to celebrate the re-opening of its Rue Royale flagship, as well as a special send off to French Vogue’s soon-to-be departed EiC Carine Roitfeld with an intimate dinner held at the Italian Embassy.

Of course Gucci always attracts the most stylish of celebrities, and this party in Paris was no different, with the likes of Diane Kruger, Jessica Alba, Olivia Wilde and Charlotte Casiraghi looking chic and fabulous in the name of the Italian brand.

I have already gushed about Diane Kruger, but she really does look amazing in a backless Gucci silk organza dress, pictured above with the gorgeous Jessica Alba wearing a one-of-a-kind Gucci embroidered sheath. I wish I had more pics of Jessica as from the other angle you would be able to see the draping detailing which I adore!

But even from these images you can see the amazing embroidered degradé of beads and crystals – she really does sparkle.

While Diane and Olivia looked edgy, I love that Jessica looked radiant in a gorgeous cocktail dress, it just shows how amazing Gucci is, that such varied looks totally belong together.

I really am loving Oliva Wilde at the moment, and this look just reinforces it. Opting for a sleek black and jade silk jumpsuit from Gucci’s spring collection, she really does pull off this bold colour option so well. I love the blue sash teamed with her electric blue clutch finished off nicely with a chunky gold necklace.

It is a hard choice on best dressed – but I think Olivia just pips Diane – just!!

Black certainly was a popular colour, with Charlotte Casiraghi going for a modern and regal look in a matte jersey jumpsuit from Gucci’s spring collection, and both Frida Giannini and French Vogue Editor-in-Chief Carine Roitfeld opting for the classsic shade.

How hot does Frida look in her slim cut velvet tuxedo – LOVE!!

Pic: Cosmopolitan - September Issue

Wow check out Whitney Eve on the September cover of American Cosmopolitan on the lovely Jessica Alba. The City’s star really has struck gold with this her first cover featuring her clothing line. Jessica wears a black pleated skirt from Whitney Eve’s autumn/winter 2010 collection and she looks good in it.

I love Whitney’s response at seeing the cover: “When I woke up this morning and saw Jessica Alba on the cover of Cosmopolitan in my shorts I almost screamed! I even ran into my parents bedroom to wake them up and show them!”

Do you like the cover?

Met Gala: Fashion Event Of The Year

I chose the most inappropriate time to get ill last week with the biggest event in the fashion calendar took place – the 2010 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, dubbed the ‘Oscars of Fashion’. The guest list was amazing as always, there was Sienna Miller’s first outing with Jude Law since they reunited, Anna Wintour dancing with Diddy, it was like a who’s who of the fashion world from Hollywood stars to models. There were amazing frocks, some fashion disasters and then there was my style icon Diane Kruger looking amazing as always. This year’s event, American Woman: Fashioning A National Identity, was sponsored by Gap and they teamed up with emerging designers Alexander Wang, Sophie Theallet and Rodarte – and got them to dress some of the hottest celebs including Jessica Alba, Kirsten Dunst and Zoe Kravitz.

Style Icon goes to Diane Kruger who looked slick in a white long-sleeve body-hugging Calvin Klein Collection frock. y MetropolitanMuseumofArtCostumeInstitutegala 01 122 6lo 500x824 Met Gala: Fashion Event Of The Year %tag

Best Of The Young Hollywood Starlets has to be Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively in an amazing strapless Marchesa a/w10 frock with peacock draped chiffon teamed with Christian Louboutin heels. The Brits were out in force, Carey Mulligan went for an understated (very boring – not glamourous enough for me) Miu Miu frock, Sienna looking all loved up chose a Pucci and then there was Alexa Chung who decided to play the cool card as always in a tux by Philip Lim.

But for me Best Brit had to be Emma Watson looking gorgeous in a custom-made one-shoulder white Burberry frock (as the face of the brand she kind of should look amazing!).

Shimmering Goddess has to be Nicole Richie in this amazing silver Marc Jacobs, this frock stands out for all the right reasons and I love how she has teamed it with a black sash around the waist and an oversized black clutch – and her hair is fierce – love!! chloescelebutopia2 500x782 Met Gala: Fashion Event Of The Year %tag

There were lots of other delights Chloe Sevigny in a teal Proenza Schouler, Rachel Weisz in a beautiful ruffled pink Oscar de la Renta, Eva Mendes wore a Dolce & Gabbana flowery number, Jennifer Lopez went for the classic princess look in a couture gown by Zuhair Murad and Emma Roberts cute in a custom black organza Marni with a stone-embellished belt.

There were some frocks that I wasn’t keen on and the one in particular has to be singer’s Katy Perry in a glowing CuteCircuit gown which had over 3000 LEDs with silk chiffon creating a rainbow of colours. I am sure she did get some best dressed awards for this innovative dress but for me it just seems a little tacky.

20039 JessicaAlba atthe2010TribecaFIlmFestival8 122 402lo 500x740 Jessica Alba In Proenza Schouler %tag

Who: Actress Jessica Alba

Where: 2010 Tribeca Film Festival program launch at the W Hollywood Hotel

Wearing: She went for an edgy reptile print Proenza Schouler mini dress teamed with wedge Proenza heels

Verdict: I am glad that she went for something a bit different, her legs look fab so she should show them off, and I feel like I love the shoes and just so-so on the dress.
