Paris and Nicky Hilton do NY Fashion Week

Ah the life of a socialite it must be so tiring swanning around all those parties and quaffing glass after glass of champagne. While doing the round at all the major shows Paris and Nicky were gracious enough to give the paps a few minutes of the time. What do you think of the outfits. I'm a bit tired of the leather jacket dress look it's been around for a couple of months and is starting to look a bit safe. Anyway let me know your thoughts!

Style Icon of the week: Halle Berry

Whatever Halle's on sign me up for it botox whatever even a phobia of needles wouldn't stop me. I mean she's 42 had a baby year ago and looks so stunning in that radiant earth mother "I eat nothing but oats and berries and bathe in milk" way. Do you guys think she's had work done ?

Ad of the week: Katie Holmes for Miu Miu

When the first batch of photos of Mrs. Cruise posing for uber brand Miu Miu were released it was all a bit underwhelming. Yeah she looked pretty but let's just say you could tell modelling was not her full time gig. So I was pleasantly surprised to see her posing like a pro in the second installment of the shots promoting the brand's spring/summer 09 campaign. She is working it like a pro and so Katie Style Bazaar salutes you!

Cutest Newlyweds Ever Part Deux

Still basking in the glow of their recent nuptials Josh Durhmel and Fergie were spotted at a Vanity Fair party at the Chateau Marmont in LA earlier this week.

Fergie's lace flapper style dress is a little bit Courtney love but doesn't quite descend into grunge territory so we're loving it and the ubiquitous Paris Hilton was also on hand to lend some heiress style to the occasion. BTW what is that one pose she always does it just makes her look like a life size mannequin. Moving on, the event was also attended Akon, Kim Kardashian and Fergie's BEP bandmates.

Street Style: Rihanna

On a recent shopping trip in LA Rihanna rocked this preppy yet girl look. I'm actually alarmed by the amount of times that she gets it right! The shirt and skater skirt are an unusual combo and shouldn't really work but do and the whole look is anchored by her accessories - double pearl necklace, chunky bangles and tan cutout heels. And I guess her amazingly long legs can't hurt either.

Gwyneth Paltrow on cover of UK ELLE

Gwyneth Palthrow is on the cover of this month's Elle magazine and she's dishing on the love of her "good" man Chris Martin,
macrobiotic food and her good girl gone bad ways.

Yup Mrs Martin says she's not as square as we may think and even wait for it .... enjoys the odd glass of red wine. And controversially when referring to her friend Courtney love the actress said:

"I don't think she's on Class A narcotics anymore. Maybe just Class C. That's no big deal - aren't we all, ha, ha, ha!"

Hmm moving on swiftly she also praised her hubby Coldplay frontman Chris Martin saying:

He's 'fundamentally generous', 'spiritually evolved' and a 'good, good man'.

And credits him for helping her to cope with her grief after her father passed away:

"I can’t listen to Swallowed In The Sea without crying. I’m amazed he stuck with me, because I was a wreck. I can’t believe that he did."

The interview actually sounds quite candid unlike those celebrity interviews that start off with the journalist describing how the
star was so much more beautiful, luminous, gracious in real life then rapidly descends into a sea of sycophancy as we are regaled with boring anecdote after boring anecdote.

The March issue of UK Elle is out today.

Mid Week Fashion Snaps

The Oscars are just around the corner and for us fashion types it's our equivalent to the Superbowl or UEFA cup - it's when the heavyweights show us what they're really made of.

The slew of pre Oscar events have got celebs turning out in their droves and below are some of the best looks so far. Double snaps go to Freida Pinto who looks like an Oscar statue comes to life so working it and Camille Belle whose MacQueen lovely I've already got pinned to my wish list wall.

Tres Chic: Katie and Suri

How cute are they ?? Stylish mother and daughter duo Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise show the fash pack how it's done on a day out in Rio de Janiero. Loving Suri's white dress with navy accents and Katie looks tres chic in beige shorts, and a slouchy v neck jumper topped off with oversized shades a la VB. Katie and Suri Style Bazaar salutes you!

Pamela Anderson Goes High Fashion

From Baywatch to Barb Wire to high fashion. Yup everyone's favourite magician's assistant is the poster girl for the Vivienne Westwood spring/summer 09 campaign. Story goes Pam met the Dame at her Red Label show and as they say the rest is history.

Pam is definitely a pop culture icon but her latest incarnation as a fashionista is less convincing and this is why: She has one look - blonde, busty and trashy. In every photoshoot she projects one persona.

Shot by renowned fashion photog Juergen Teller the shots are gorgeous and I'm loving Vivienne Westwood's little cameo appearance in the background. But Pam's a one trick pony and I feel like I've kinda seen it all before.

Confessions of a Shopaholic Trailer

The Confessions of a Shopaholic movie comes out this month and although it's gotten a lambasting from the critics I say who cares ? It's got the lovely Isla Fisher playing lead character Becky Bloomwood and Pat Field as stylist so it's bound to be worth a look. Enjoy the trailer.

He's Just Not That Into You Trailer

He's Just Not That Into You World Premier

He's just not that into you is one of those books I picked up years ago because I'd read that Liz Tuccillo one of the co-writers had also written for Sex and the City so logic goes SATC hilarious HJNTIY also ridiculously spot on and funny. And it didn't let me down the book is a collection of really honest advice about dating from both a male and female perspective with some hilarious anecdotes thrown in.

Anyway fast forward to the present and the film version starring Jen Aniston, Scarlett Johansson, Jen Connelly, Drew Barrymore and Ginnifer Goodwin had it's world premier in LA and the film's leading ladies celebrated in style.

Scarleto Jo showed off her newly dyed locks and.... fashion snaps for trying something new but she truthfully looked better blonde. The dress is a little too club tropicana for my tastes but with her knockout figure she somehow manages to pull it off.

Apart from desperately needing a cupcake like now Jennifer Connelly looks like a mermaid who's just swam ashore. The dress is horrible. The shoes need to be returned to a market stall pronto. From the neck up she looks totally gorgeous though.

So best dressed of the night goes Drew, Jen A and Ginnifer Goodwin. ok so they didn't take any risk and stuck o failsafes - bow, block colour, black suit - but hey if it ain't broke.
