A black and white affair at Chanel Fine Jewelry 'Night of Diamonds'

Whenever Chanel holds an event, they make sure most (if not all) the stars on the red carpet are wearing Chanel. So it came as no surprise that on Wednesday night at Chanel's 'Night of Diamonds' dinner at The Plaza Hotel for the Chanel Fine Jewelry collection, the black and white red carpet outfits were mostly Chanel. It's a good marketing ploy, and it makes my job a little easier – instead of running through the imaginary slide show of runway images in my head, I can just say 'yes, doesn’t Blake Lively look fabulous in Chanel?’ And doesn’t she just? The high collar does look slightly odd on one so young, but the ruffles and embellishment on the skirt is just amazing.

Erin Wasson wears a white Chanel dress first seen last year on Keira Knightley, but Wasson accessorises it with lots of bangles and a feathered hair piece which gives the outfit her own touch. Selma Blair looks very glamorous in her Chanel dress as Andrea pointed out over at ShinyStyle. While Ellen Pompeo reminds me of Coco Chanel herself in her 1920s inspired outfit – I’m not sure about the driving gloves though....

The embellished dresses really had a decent showing on the red carpet with Estee Lauder face, Liya Kabede, wearing a beautiful sequined cocktail dress and toting a quilted Chanel bag. Margherita Missoni wore a white dress with a large ruffled collar and eyelet detail at the neckline. The tiered look distracted us a little from the collar, but my favourite thing about her outfit were her shoes.

Julia Stiles opted for a simple black satin dress with a high neck, offsetting the dark look with red snake skin heels. Hana Soukupova wore a gorgeous halter neck, embellished at the neckline which flowed out into a semi sheer handkerchief hem dress.
