Cartier 100th Anniversary


Darlings, the celebrities came out to celebrate diamonds! Have you ever heard of anything more meaningful in your life? It's the Cartier 100th Anniversary in America Celebration at Cartier Fifth Avenue Mansion in New York City - and you weren't invited! Let's be snotty and judge them instead.

Anne Hathaway:
Modified Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 Collection
Model: Magdalena Frackowiak


Well, okay. Good for her for insisting on some modifications because the original dress was kind of ugly and besides, Anne Hathaway doesn't expose her nipples for less than 7 figures. Problem is, it's modified to the point of not only being an entirely different dress; it's a boring and kind of ugly one to boot.

Demi Moore:
Prabal Gurung Fall 2009 Collection
Model:
Megan McNierney


She looks fabulous. No complaints here.

Eva Mendes:
Azarro Fall 2009 Collection
Model: Sabrina Benamor


It's a pretty fab dress and it looks better on her than on the model. The only thing is, that neckline paired with those shoulders does kind of give off the distinct whiff of Rose Nyland, no? Love the Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.

Rachel Weisz:
Prabal Gurung Fall 2009 Collection
Model: Hyoni Kang



Again, no complaints here. Love the shoes.

Kate Hudson:
Rachel Roy Fall 2009 Collection
Model: Jill Bauwens



We've seen this dress on other starlets and it's not an easy dress to pull off. Surprisingly (because she rarely demonstrates this skill), she's wearing the hell out of it. Since it's got such a '40s feel to it, we would have recommended a more structured hairstyle though.

Yes, celebrating diamonds -- what a wonderful thing to do. (Eye roll.)


As much as I dislike Wilmas, Demi looks terrific, though she seems to have reached the point where her head is looking too big for her body. Or maybe it's the other way around.


That Rachel Roy dress reminds me one of Chloe's finale dresses (but it's been a long time sine I saw those pictures so I might be a bit off).

But Mrs. Aplusk looks like the winner here. She's dressing her age without giving it away.

Hey, I like Rose Nylund!

:0)


Do not care for Azarro from the Fall 2009 Collection on Ms. Mendes. I think the dress is too old for her.

IMO the dress would look great on Demi Moore or Sharon Stone.

Love all the other looks (even Anne Hathaway) and the celebs actually look better than most of the models.

Gotham said, That Rachel Roy dress reminds me one of Chloe's finale dresses. (The fact that the model looks very much like Grace adds to the impression.


I can take or leave Anne Hathaway's look - the colour is nice on her skin, but I'm beige on the whole concept.

Demi and Eva look fabulous - they're wearing the crap out of those dresses and look better than the models...

As for Kate and Rachel, meh.


Tahnk you TampaBay. I also don't care for the Azarro on Mendes, and is it just me, or are her shoes too small? (They are FABOOSH though.) WTH is up with her pointy boobshelf?

The dress Hudson is wearing does not make her fake tan look good. Please, an updo on you EVER, Kate? Just once?

Demi's dress is nice but a little...square? sacky? something's flat.

Props to the other ladies. the deep colours and texture are nice on Anne, if a bit prim.


Rachel's hair and makeup look fine, but the Gurung dress does zilch for her. Looks like her dinner napkin askew on top, and a falling serape on the side.

I think Demi wins in her Prabal Gurung, despite the Wilma.

the "modified" Vuitton is fugly, for sure. Anne Hathaway is coming in waaaaay last of this group. Man, that is bad. The top is okay, but the bottom is too short and too tight. She even looks uncomfortable posing in it. However, this is the exception that proves the rule on Ms. Hathaway, she is usually looking fab in these pics.


Demi Moore is hands down the winner here. Eva Mendes presence & presentation turned what could have been a boring and borderline tacky dress (I can just hear myself dismissing it as "too shiny, too 80's") into a glamorous ensemble. (Those shoes!)

Ms. Hathaway's alterations for modesty (though absolutely necessary if you ask me) ruined the line of the upper body and did they axe the over-skirt? Somehow the line of the skirt seems narrower above the knee and it is UNflattering. Big miss.


Love Demi's look. I wish I had one.


Kate is beginning to look like a 50 year-old mattress.


The Prabal Gurung dresses are gorgeous. Didn't he use to work at Bill Blass? Love his designs.


I don't like diamonds. Do I have to turn in my girl card?


Demi Moore looks incredible. She never ages.


Anne Hathaway's dress is too short for her. Her legs aren't that great.

I thought the same thing, from her final collection, right?


Ms. Moore looks great! And I'm with Siren, no diamonds, much prefer emeralds (although I don't have any of those either).


too many cats

An emporer has no clothes moment:

A quick read through the text and I can remember the dresses, but not the diamonds.

At an event to celebrate 100 years of diamonds, I should be remembering the diamonds.

That is all.


Why the pointy cone boobs, Eva?

At first glance, her shoes give me the impression that she's wearing socks and sneakers. And it gives me the willies that her toes are hanging way too far off the front of them.

Anonymous,

The shoes are sampl sise which means size 6-7. ms. mendes probably did not want to shell out $2,000.00 for those shoes. The killer shoes are definitely $2K+ shoes. I know because I am a shoe nut.

Seriously. That's the "I-Wonder" bras.

Emeralds are my favorite too. They grow right here in NC and you can find them sometimes, if you know where to look.


Put me down as another one who doesn't like the Azarro on Eva Mendes.
Her version is longer than the one on the model. Because it's hitting below the knee on Mendes and because she's wearing those shoes with the ginormous ankle cuffs, the effect makes her look short.
It's a shame too because she's got such nice legs.


- Love Ms. Hathaway's dress.
- Demi is aight. Her right boob looks 2x bigger than her left boob.
- Eva = old (b/c of the dress)
- No complaints on Ms. Weisz
- Agreed on Kate


Diamonds are a girls best friend? Seems to me that a lot of these celeb's best friends should be their stylists!
Anne: Love the color on her, hate the sausage skirt.
Demi looks GREAT. Adore the dress, and she works it so well!
Eva: 1980's meh.
Rachel: The fit is awful. Not liking the entire look.
Kate: Love the gown, but that stringy hair has to go. Doesn't become the entire look at all.


CanIGetYouAnything?

Demi Moore looks flawless. Damn, no wonder she has such a young husband.


The Azarro is hideous. It looks like Christmas wrapping paper.


Anne H. - Too short and I hate lace.
Demi M. - Fabulous!
Rachel W. - Gorgeous!
Kate H. - Kind of slutty morticia looking; not loving it.
Eva M. - I hate the sleeves; too retro and not in a good way.


Kate Hudson wore that dress well. The orange tone of her skin distracted me, though.

I'm also tired of the killer heels. Too, too much.
-Frances


Ugh. Try as i may, i just cannot get on board with cutouts. They just allllways look cheap.


Rachel Weisz hands down own the night and Kate Hudson comes a close second.

Demi Moore on the other hand looks ridiculous.


Demi Moore gives me such a rash that I'm incapable of being objective. I think she always looks ridiculous.

Anne Hathaway usually looks so fabulous, I can't hold this against her. I think it's mostly just a little too short.

I love Eva's shoes because they're so outrageous. But yikes. They scare me. The girl deserves battle pay for actually wearing them.


I want to know who Demi sold her soul to. I think she looks better now than she did 15 years ago.


The dresses? WHO CARES?

The winners are those gorgeous assortment of diamonds and sapphires on Anne Hathaway's wrist!

***DROOLS***


I disagree with Tlo on Rachel.

Substituting a plain belt for one with an off-center sparkly buckle destroys the oddly complimentary look.


Kate looks great!


Did you guys know that almost all of them are Rachel Zoe's clients?


Anne Hathaway is so pretty. She's always well dressed. The designers must love her, she looks good in anything.


Demi looks terrific; don't you just hate her? LOL.


For a soiree to celebrate diamonds, the jewelery was curiously understated...except for Kate.

I have nothing good to say about Anne's modified Vuitton.


Why didn't Anne just wear a different dress? Jeez ...

Demi leaves me cold, and I think she usually looks silly. Meh this time.

I don't like blondes in all black. My first thought when I saw Kate was modified-Elvira.


Anne Hathaway's dress immediately brought to mind Patsy Stone's immortal comment "With one snap of my fingers, I can make the world your gynecologist!" Or, as Nina says "Tight, shiny and short is the quickest way to look cheap!"...tis a puzzlement, she usually looks beautiful!


I kind of hate Rachel's shoes. They look like hooves from the front.


Is it me, or do Eva's shoes look too small for her? The toes should not hang off the edge, darlings!


Am I the only one who's reminded of the Other Mother in Coraline by the Rachel Roy dress on the model?


Looking at the shoes without feet...I think they may actually fit Eva Mendes...they are just weirdly designed, so that the platform sole sits back further than the footbed. I think they are ugly, myself, but what do I know.

And, yeah, if they are too small, it's a common affliction of small sample sizes. I say suck it up and buy your shoes, then, beechez. It's just like the clothes, in my opinion...you should wear what fits, and if a designer wants you to wear his or her stuff, they should get you your size. You absolutely should not go out in public wearing clothes that don't fit you!


I love all of them, specially Eva Mendes' shoes and Kate Hudson dress.

And speaking of Kate Hudson... didn't wee see that dress before??

See here, here and hereAs the guys always mention:

Rachel Roy... Chloe Dao called, she's pissed, y'know?


TLo, Anne Hathaway's dress was by Jill Stuart, not Louis Vuitton.
