There aren’t many people out there who can wear a head-to-toe runway look and make it look better than the model, but Jennifery Connelly really loves the challenge. First with her Balenciaga turn, and now (I think) more successfully with Balmain at last night’s premiere of He’s Just Not That Into You. Dressed in Christophe Decarnin’s revered Spring / Summer 2009 collection for Balmain, she not only pulled off more sequins and sparkles than Dolly Parton, but also showed us how to work the wide shoulder silhouette that we’re going to be seeing constantly in the coming months. Plus, I love the shoes and am so glad she stuck with them to complete the look. Other well-dressed attendees like Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore and Ginnifer Goodwin paled in comparison to Connelly’s fashion-forward look.

You can see her in the season’s best Little Black Dresses just in time for the party season, and we’ve got a sneak peek at her in CRHEE’s Slowdive dress from their fall/winter collection above.
(And if you’re wondering, she’s wearing Pierre Hardy shoes.)
Seeming to continue the momentum of last season’s floral body-reshaping dresses, Nicholas Ghesquiere is changing the women’s silhouettes again at Balenciaga. It seems that the Balenciaga women no longer needs definition in their body, as it will be reshaped any way with stiffly-voluminous pieces, case in point, his shiny scarlett egg-shaped dress. It’s so rigid in a oddly tailored way, it puts last season’s pieces to shame.
If we disliked the Jennifer Connelly dresses, you can imagine how we feel about this latest developement.
The girls over at sister-site Catwalk Queen have been busy choosing their favorite dresses from last night’s 7th on Sale gala, and we’re ready to do the same. The three day sample sale was kicked off in glamorous style with Elle Macpherson, Valentino Garavani, Iman, and Kate Moss on the red carpet. It was classic black for these fashion big names, no toying with colours. Elle wore a simple strapless black dress, with pleated detail on the hip, while Iman’s dress featured tiers of ruffles, with metallic silver accents and a sheer top. Valentino and Kate prefered sleek black blazers, well Valentino is actually wearing a three-piece suit.

Nicholas Ghesquière hit the mark with his aesthetically colorful relaying of this season’s ‘tough look’ into spring and summer. Ghesquière manipulated bold floral patterns into fashion armor! While the box-shaped military-style tops and suit of armor-like shorts remained consistent throughout the show, the colors, patterns, and accents varied magnificently.
