Who: Best actress nominee, Natalie Portman, for her role in Black Swan

Where: At the 83rd Academy Awards in Hollywood

Wearing: A plum silk chiffon draped custom made Rodarte gown teamed with Jimmy Choo heels, Roger Vivier clutch and Tiffany rubellite tassel earrings with rose-cut diamonds

Verdict: Well we nearly didn’t see Natalie on the red carpet as she was last to arrive, maybe that was to avoid the “was Dior your original choice for tonight?”.

I like this gown, I just wasn’t blown away by it, I was expecting a lot more considering she is the hot favourite to take away the Oscar.

I like the way the off-the-shoulder gown frames her baby bump, and the draping really does create a gorgeous silhouette. Also the colour is a striking colour on her. But what makes this outfit has to be those Tiffany tassel earrings – they are stunning.

Video Loving: Elle Fanning Strikes Gold In Rodarte

Elle Fanning: Rodarte’s Muse on Nowness.com.

I am big fan of Elle Fanning, as with Hailee Steinfeld she really does bring it when hitting the red carpet, so I was so pleased to see her in Todd Cole’s latest video collaboration with Rodarte, The Curve of Forgotten Things.

We’ve seen Elle in Rodarte before, in that gorgeous leather skater dress, but what makes this a great video is that she is digging for buried treasure in such a wonderful creation. The film highlights Rodarte’s spring/summer 2011 collection.

Seriously gorgeous short film.

Somewhere: Elle Fanning Stunning in Rodarte

Who: 12-year-old actress Elle Fanning

Where: At the York Screening of Somewhere at Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York City

Wearing: Head-to-toe Rodarte from the spring/summer 2011 collection, the gorgeous leather skater dress is teamed with the exquisite detailing of Rodarte’s gold wedge sandals and sheer white ankle socks

Verdict: I think when you see Elle in an amazing outfit like this it is easy to forget that this girl isn’t even a teen, but she really is rocking this full runway look. I love the gladiator dress with its beige printed leather, but it’s the peaks of the gold side panels within the pleats that I adore.

I can’t express how much I love this amazing dress, but for me it is all about those Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte wedges – they are amazing, carved from wood and metal. Crazy detailing – and even though I am not a big fan of the socks and wedges, for some reason it really works.

Video Loving: Black Swan Starring Natalie Portman

Wow this film looks scary but amazing- check out those Rodarte costumes. Black Swan stars Natalie Portman as Nina, a featured dancer who finds herself locked in a web of competitive intrigue with a new rival at the company, Mila Kunis.

Who else really wants to see this flick?

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.

Fairytale dress goes to Anne Hathaway in Valentino (above).

Style Icon goes to Diane Kruger who looked slick in a white long-sleeve body-hugging Calvin Klein Collection frock.

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!!

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.
