Best dress of the week this week is going to Rose McGowan at the Conan the Barbarian premiere in LA. The former Charmed actress wore a sequined Blumarine full length gown which gave a very mermaid like feel to her outfit.

The colours sparkled beautifully and she paired it with loose side swept curls. Her pink lipstick finished the look and I think she looked amazing! Blumarine have some fabulous dresses and I hope we see more of them on red carpets soon!

My choice for best dressed of the week this week is going to Mila Kunis at the Moscow premiere of her latest title Friends with Benefits.

The actress wore an Elie Saab couture dress from the 2011 collection.

The dress has a ballerina style about it and the sequins make it sparkle beautifully. The low necklace is hidden by a mesh panel making the look all the more delicate and lady like.

She paired the gorgeous dress with some Elie Saab heels again in white, and went for a brown smokey eye. The hair bands and the loose, wavy hair finish off the look perfectly.

My best dressed of the week this week is going to Ashley Tisdale at the Miu Miu Presents Lucrecia Martel’s “Muta” event in Beverley Hills.

Ashley wore a cream coloured peter pan colour dress from ASOS, paired with Miu Miu Mary Jane peep toes in a plum colour. I love the way the cream colour of the dress compliments her enviable Californian glow and the shoes give her just enough edge to prevent this look from becoming boring.

Her make up is equally as understated with girlie pink lips, nude eyes, subtle blush and some not OTT lashes; she even finishes it off with nude nails with a statement ring finger. That watch is also beautiful, I need one!

I am very jealous.

I’m not jealous at all!

I also have a sort spot for celebrities wearing high street clothes, especially to a Miu Miu event so bonus points to Tisdale for that!

It’s no secret I’m a sucker for Christian Louboutin shoes. Is it because all the celebrities wear them? The red soles? The sky high heels which can’t help but make even the wobbliest legs look fabulous? The ridiculous price tag? Who knows, but I like ’em and I want ’em.

Recently the pair to be seen in is the Madame Butterfly Bootie. 6” heel, cute little bows, killer platform, what’s not to love?

Keri Hilson and Emma Watson both wore them, Watson at the National Movie awards and Hilson at the BET Awards. Rhianna and Heidi Klum have also been spotted in them and Lindsay Lohan wore them to one of her court appearances (she always lowers the tone…)

As you might guess, these shoes don’t come cheap. At £775 a go I’ll be giving them a miss for this month. But, luckily enough River Island have just launched these:

In my original post just under a year ago following the scandal that Miley Cyrus ‘pole danced’ on stage at the Teen Choice Awards 2009 I thought it was all just a big storm in a tea cup. Yes Miley has lots of young, impressionable fans but her antics on stage were hardly akin to anything sexual and she was just enjoying herself.

BUT, the latest Miley Cyrus scandal has changed my opinion of the 17 year old. Today a clip has been passed around the internet with a girl, who I assume to be Miley Cyrus, dancing wholey inappropraitely with director Adam Shankman at a party to celebrate the end of filming Miley’s film, The Last Song.

Wiggling her bum around the openly homosexual director’s crotch she looks like she’s having a splendid time… But I’m sure none the less a scandal will be whipped up, damning her for influencing her fans to place themselves on the crotch of any middle aged men.

Whilst the two incidents are completely different, appearing on stage there are completely different rules and codes of conduct compared to when you’re at a private party, and it seems as if Miley is unaware that she is being filmed or that the video would end up on the internet but none the less her position in the media and her celebrity status means that this can only be bad news.

Yes, celebrities are entitled to do whatever they please, but when your every move is being watched and subject to scrutiny perhaps it’s best to keep such antics behind closed doors. No it’s not fair, she’s not the only 17 year old girl to have been caught in such a compromising position, but the price you pay for fame is being watched, constantly, whenever and wherever you are and if you can’t take the good with the bad possibly a the celebrity career path isn’t the one for you.

I highly doubt that any child post seeing this video will then emulate Miley as good parenting should teach children that it’s inappropriate no matter what Miley is telling them, but the debate still ensues. Was Miley in the wrong for doing it in the first place? Was the person who covertly filmed her in the wrong for passing his video around the internet? Am I wrong for passing it around further? What do you think?

*Edit: The video has been removed from youtube, if you really want to see you can get it here*

Hmm, well I suppose interesting was the right word for Beyonce’s new video. It was launched yesterday and whilst it’s good to look at, the 1950s housewife look is cute and gives the video a strong style and quirkie-ness, it also however screams misogyny!

Tut-tut Beyonce! In the video all she really does is cry over her man who doesn’t love her, cook, clean, ponce around in her underwear and do some gardening. What happened to the empowered female we saw in Crazy Right Now and Single Ladies? Not at all a positive message to be giving to her fans about femininity. Whilst the fashion is very glamorous and she looks stunning I just wish she’d get a back bone! It is possible to be powerful and look good at the same time!

What do you think about the message of this video?

Nick Jonas speaking at the National Press Club in Washington DC

Nick Jonas speaking at the National Press Club in Washington DC

Browsing through youtube earlier today I stumbled on some videos of Nick Jonas of Jonas Brothers (or Jo-Bro) fame speaking at a Diabetes Press conference in Washington D.C. from Monday morning to raise awareness about childhood diabetes. Turns out that Nick was diagnosed with diabetes in 2005 and has been doing lots of charity work to raise awareness of the disease, and give support to other young people diagnosed with the condition.

Talking as a diabetic diagnosed when I was 8, way back in 1998, I think he’s giving out a very positive message. In the press conference he talks a lot about how he struggles with the disease on a day to day basis, having to check his blood sugar levels 12 times a day, and how he wanted to use his position in the media to turn something which is really quite negative, into something positive by giving support to other young people who are struggling with the disease.

Whilst I would consider myself to be have good management of my diabetes on a daily basis and a flexible regime which doesn’t affect my life too much, I admit that I am guilty of not giving it the attention it deserve sometimes, possibly because of lots of the misconceptions there are about the disease.

I’ll often avoid telling people about my diabetes, with lots of my oldest friends not knowing and slyly slipping out to take my injection. The reasons for my reluctancy to talk about it are because of the misconceptions about the disease. I assumed that if I told people, rather than being able to help me if it were to be go wrong, they’d assume that I got the disease because I was over weight or had an unhealthy lifestyle. (It was actually more genetic from my Grandfather)

Hopefully Nick Jonas will be able to use his fame and presence in the media to be able to educate people about some of these misconceptions, and give other kids with the condition the confidence to be more open about it, not to be embarrassed or let it hold them back in any way.

Part of his work for this cause is the “Nick’s Simple Wins” web site, where young diabetics are invited to send in a 30 second video showing how their diabetes hasn’t hindered their ability to be creative or slowed them down in any way. As well as donating lots of money to the cause and selling a dog tag he designed with half of the money going to the Change for Children Foundation.

To my knowledge he’s the only person in the media who openly talks about his condition, and when I was younger, if there were someone like him giving a positive message about the disease I think it couldn’t helped. He also comes across incredibly well, talking to thousands of people and journalists at the press conference extremely well, given that he is only 16 years of age.
