It was a mayhem for the Creative Coalition Gala red carpet on Tuesday night at The Harman Center for the Arts in Washington, DC. Anne Hathaway showed up first on the red carpet, a vision in a red, floor length Dior gown, escorted by her father Gerald. Oscar nominee Marisa Tomei swept by in an adorable in a very structured, black,  off the shoulder dress by Giambattista Valli.  Kerry Washington wore a deep cut blue dress that simply sparkled. Celebgawking apologizes and wished they could interview and take pictures at the same time but alas, that deemed way to difficult. Press from Glamour Magazine to OK! and of course the Washington Post were  all clamoring to get the best quotes. Matthew Modine told us a new mini-facelift trick was smiling and Susan Sarandon told us she thought Michelle Obama had great style. Below are some news agency pics and a few shots celebgawking took as the celebs strolled down the carpet before heading inside for a performance by Sting.

Kerry Washington arrived late but still looked sparkly in various shades of blue. The photogs went crazy when she took off her coat for pictures. Friday Night Lights Connie Britton, and one of the sweetest girls to interview, sparkled in this gold, floor length stunner by Italian designer Ginami. The evening before at the VIP Creative Coalition Dinner Britton told celebgawking this is her first Inaugural Ball and was very excited to be a part of the festivities.

There were several hush-hush after parties and celebgawking observed some serious canoodling and fun. But a strict no cameras allowed policy kept us from getting it on film, so you’ll just have to take our word for it.

It’s been a star-studded week for Washington, DC as the Inaugural festivities kicked off  and Celebgawking has been there to catch some of the action. The District’s most exlcusive hotels  have been gushing celebgawking of all kinds. First stop,  Bourbon  inside the Four Seasons Hotel in Georgetown, where a few notable A-listers have been spotted sipping a cocktail or two. Oprah Winfrey has the mack daddy suite here and Jessica Alba and hubby Cash Warren are also rumored to be guests.  Sunday night we spotted Jessica Alba looked gorgeous at the Impact Film Festival  Party when she stopped in to mingle with other VIP’s like Ron Howard, Nelly and Sarah Silverman. The Creative Coalition VIP Dinner at Teatro Goldoni on K Street was also a place to rub elbows with Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins, Kerry  Washington, Josh Lucas, Connie Britton, Billy Baldwin & Ellen Burstyn. Inside Edition’s Samantha Harris gushed about her excitement to becovering the official parties and galas and even let celebgawking know how she stays in shape- by taking the stairs! Celebgawking couldn’t get to the Huffington Post Party but we heard due to massive traffic delays some other celebs didn’t make it either. However we hear Robert De Niro & Denzel Washington along with Sharon Stone did. Later on Washington Life Magazine  sponsored The Black Door Party at Josephine’s where we spotted Vanessa Wlliams looking fab, Star Jones being..well Star Jones. Rosario Dawson was looking gorgeous while dancing at a private table in the “Gold Room” with Jessica Alba, Hayden Panettiere &  Kerry Washington. Tracey Edmunds took to the dance floor while lipsynching “We Are Family” with some girlfriends and nearby Forest Whitaker danced alongside wife Keisha at a private table. Thank so much  to the PR mavens who hooked celebgawking up with entry into this exclusive party and a killer gift bag…you know who you are, enough said. Stay tuned as celebgawking.com gears up for The Creative Coalition Gala at The Harman Center for the Arts, The Purple Ball at The Fairmont  & The BET Ball at The Mandarin Oriental tonight.

Recession or not, the show must go on and The Hollywood Foreign Association put on it’s biggest show of the year last night with the 66th Annual Golden Globes. The Beverly Hills Hilton has hosted the star-studded event for the past 35 years and all the heavy hitters came out to play and dressed in their best threads of course. In a sea of Lanvin, Yves Saint Laurent and Chanel everyone always looks smashing but a handful really stick out from the rest.

For those of you who love fashion then you know this is a make it or break it event for designers to show off their couture by dressing some of Hollywood’s most famous faces. The over the shoulder style is still going strong along with bold and neutral colors and a comeback for ruffles. Black was the safe choice for Susan Sarandon in Hugo Boss tuxedo jacket. Reem Acra ruled the night with three different high profile ladies wearing this designer. Eva Longoria was ravishing in a tight, red gown by Reem Acra.  Olivia Wilde also wore a Reem Acra creation and looked absolutely divine in a ruffled, lavendar gown. Last but certainly not least was  a very grown up Rumer Willis in a purple, strapless Reem Acra.

Jennifer Morrison and Amy Adams both donned Oscar De La Renta and Christina Applegate took your breath away in a yellow strapless Roberto Cavalli. Eva Mendes was a model of beauty in a floor length, off white Dior complete with bows and ruffles and the most amazing turqoise blue necklace I have ever laid my eyes on.

Drew Barrymore epitomized old school glamour in a grey off the shoulder John Galliano gown and big, sexy hair and Sandra Bullock wore a dress by Dior described as ‘vanilla’ by E! host Ryan Seacrest. Cameron Diaz of course pulling off an almost impossible color-pink! But it is Chanel Haute Couture and it is Cameron Diaz.

I loved the unique and bold print of Maggie Gyllenhaal’s gown by Lanvin and Debra Mesing’s Zac Posen. Jennifer Lopez was flawless in a plunging, gold gown by Marchesa and Hayden Panettiere was grown up in a beaded Gianfranco Ferre.

Brangelina...could they be anymore beautiful?

Brangelina...could they be anymore beautiful?

The celebs were out again for the VH1 Critic’s Choice Awards in Santa Monica Thursday night. There were several well dressed lads and ladies on the red carpet, which perhaps served as a great rehearsal for Sunday night’s Golden Globes. Some of my favorites are below. I adored Penelope Cruz in a royal blue stunner by Yves Saint Laurent and Anne Hathaway was super cute in Gianfranco Ferre’. If I had gobs and gobs of money I would buy the following dresses and covet them as my own. I would also buy Brad Pitt.

Awards season in Hollywood has officially begun. Last night marked the 35th People’s Choice Awards hosted by Queen Latifah at Shriners Auditorium in Los Angeles. A bevy of beauties rocked the red carpet and there was certainly some hits and misses. One of the trends I am loving right now is single strap over the shoulder look. Kate Hudson was looking gorgeous in an asymetrical cut from Gucci’s  2009 line in Teal.  90210’s Jessica Stroup looked sexy chic in Herve Leger and Queen Latifah rocked a dress by Gustavo Cadile. DWTS’s Samantha Harris looking svelte in a whitw hot number by David Meister. A very grown up looking Dakota Fanning kept it sassy with her one-armed blue mini.

Debra messing looked a little gray in Donna Karan but Marisa Tomei made up for it in her racy red by the same designer. Jay Godfrey has been showing up everywhere lately and Swedish beauty Malin Aikerman chose him for the evenings festivities.

Madonna inspirational in 2009

In Uncategorized on January 5, 2009 at 9:16 pm

Back in December, Madonna’s photo shoot for the Spring 2009 Louis Vuitton Campaign were leaked. LV’s creative director, Marc Jacobs, found inspiration after seeing Madonna in concert. Now that we are in new resolution mode I thought it only proper to salute Madonna and how she has inspired yours truly. Clad here in sky high heels and some glam LV accessories,  Madonna is helping me look forward to two of my New Year’s resolutions this year.  madonna21A) Becoming more flexible by doing more yoga and B) Procuring a long overdue Louis Vuitton Bag.

 Here’s the Material Girl in the upcoming 2009 Louis Vuitton ads shot by Mert Alas & Marcuss Piggott in Los Angeles. We can only hope to look like Madonna when we turn 50. And of course to be paid the reported $10 million that Louis Vuitton shelled out to the queen of pop for her services.
