Diane Von Furstenberg and Terri Stevens

Here are some new photos from the Diane von Furstenburg event that I attended this past month. As I blogged about earlier, Diane von Furstenberg had a runway event at Neiman Marcus here in Chicago to celebrate the addition of her line to the store. The event was hot!

2009 American Music Awards: Best and Worst Dressed

This year's AMA Stars wore fashions that were anything but ordinary. The red carpet may not have been as fierce as the stage, but most stars went for it! They may have missed the target, but they went for it. The trend seemed to be white black and gold plus a little "au naturale" thanks to Lady Gaga!

Looking elegant and beautiful, Whitney received a standing ovation for her return to the stage!

I'm not all that star struck by Shakira's red carpet attire but she definitely adds flavor to the black dominance of the red carpet. On stage she rocked it in a strapless, mini, leatherette dress.

Mary J wore snake skin for her performance of "I Am". Her red carpet look was elegant and conservative.

Rhianna came straight out of the "Fifth Element" for this performance! From spinning on a windmill to a stage made of laser beams, Rhianna will not be forgotten!

Rhianna's red carpet attire was very daring per usual. This is a laser cut floral gown by Marchesa.

Neyo! Not best dressed, but still handsome.

Janet! Why?! I love a Jackson, but this is not okay! The performance was fine but this is not the fierce Janet I know!

Lady Gaga as Fierce as ever!
She never fails to make an impression. Always count on Lady Gaga to show up and show out! The best comment I have heard so far was "why didn't she just go naked?"

Carrie Underwood was definitely the queen of shimmer and shine last night.

Kelly Clarkson, this is unacceptable on the red carpet. Any dress you wear on the red carpet should scream "I am a Star!" Tell me, what is this dress saying to you?

JEN! Worst performance of the night matched with the worst performance attire of the night. This ensemble is so unflattering for her.

Jay-Z took the Dapper award for the night. His suits were classic and simple. Definitely the best dressed Man of the night!

Fergie loves to show the body, and she does just that in her edgy leo and textured tights.

Alicia Keys walks the red carpet with a Giorgio Armani dress. Although she breaks the color mold, she brings it back on stage as she dances on a rooftop with black leggings and a black jacket adorned with gold chains.

Michael Kors Opens Store in Chicago

Michael Kors Collection Store was welcomed to Chicago this month. Michael Kors added "900 North Michigan Ave" to his list of store locations joining with many other boutiques in the 900 shops mall on the Magnificent Mile. He opened the store with a huge celebration complete with a high fashion runway show and after party.

Interview with WGN News.

Lohan Tries Again

Earlier this year actress Lindsay Lohan debuted her first line as artistic advisor for Emanuel Ungaro. Ungaro himself called the line a "disaster" and Lohan has recieved tough criticism since then.

Lohan is now teaming up with bebe for a new line, which many feel is a horrible idea.

Maybe only fashion designers should be fashion designers. What do you think?
