InStyle Women Of Style Awards: Red Carpet Awards Evening; Supermodel Miranda Kerr and friends

It was another big night for Australian fashion, following on from last weeks Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week Australia.

There was lots of talk tonight about the added boost to security to help protect the goody bags. Another major focus point was the attendance of supermodel Miranda Kerr.

It’s understood that The Voice mentor Megan Washington pointed to her at as the person she’d most been looking forward to seeing.

"I heard that looking at her is like looking into the sun so I’m eager to find out if that’s the truth or not."

Kerr, in a pale blue colour Zampatti dress, low cut at the back and front, told media she was excited to be among the nominees.

"It’s really special because I’m nominated for Kora Organics for the beauty awards and I’ve really put my heart and soul into (it)… so to be recognised for that is really special for me."

The Voice franchise was also represented by mentor Ricki-Lee Coulter, in a black and silver Sass & Bide maxi dress, and advised she was pleased with her time on the Nine Network show but is still keeping in touch.

"I’m always on hand for any contestant on team Seal. I let them know if they ever need a hand they can get to me any time they want," she said.

Celebs from many walks attending including Asher Keddie, Layne Beachley, Nikki Gemmell, Kate Ritchie and Miranda Otto.

Lara Bingle turned up late, with speculation that she may have been looking to avoid some of Sydney’s least favourite photographers. Yes, not all media and photographers are as nice as us guys and girls.

Well done to everyone involved in tonight’s ultra successful fashion event.

Happy Feet Two Australian Premiere With Robin Williams And George Miller At Entertainment Quarter In Sydney

The Happy Feet Two Australian premiere took place at Moore Park, Fox Studios this afternoon, and it was happy feet galore as celebs did the white carpet, with snowflakes flying around all of us.

Sydney has gone head over heels for Mumbles, Erik and Lovelace, and they would just love to see you and your family see their film when it opens in Australia on 15th December.

Even the Sydney weather got in the mood for the movie with a bit of an Arctic chill in the air.

The sequel to the animated smash-hit Happy Feet reunites the Academy Award winners to the magnificent and super cool landscape of Antarctica, this time in 3D.

Mumble’s tiny son Erik is choreo-phobic. Reluctant to dance, Erik and his friends run away where they soon meet The Mighty Sven – a penguin who can fly! Mumble has no hope of competing with this charismatic new role model but things are about to get worse when the world is shaken by powerful forces. Erik soon learns of his father’s guts and grit as Mumble brings together the penguin nations and all manner of fabulous creatures – from tiny Krill to giant Elephant Seals – to put things right.

Mumble’s son, Erik, is battling to realize his talents in the Emperor Penguin world. Meanwhile, Mumble and his family and friends discover a new threat their home – one that will take everyone working together to save them.

Other than Robin Williams the film also features the voices of Elijah Wood, Hank Azaria, Alecia Moore (P!nk), Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Sofia Vergara, Common, Hugo Weaving, Richard Carter, Magda Szubanski, Anthony LaPaglia and Benjamin “Lil P-Nut” Flores Jr. We think Williams genius saves this film from being pretty average – keeping in mind we know how awesome Williams and Miller can be when they are at their best.

Robin Williams told Music News Australia on the difference between voice acting and traditional acting: "It feels free". On feelings about media and the style of movie "Well, it’s very different from One Hour Photo", which got a great reaction from the press pack – especially the snappers.

Australian producer, director and writer George Miller said of the film when asked about creative and financial success: "It was so rewarding. The film should do really well and its in 3D this time also". When complimented on his one of one interviews with today’s press and asked about if he would even be open to a Foxtel – StudioTV ‘Dinner With Five’ concept where producers, directors and actors all sit down for dinner and discuss the business, taped for television he said "I haven’t actually seen that but it sounds interesting". Further quizzed Miller said: "I guess I would be open to that".

Miller said getting so many big names on board was "a great privilege and very humbling".

The Mad Max director said he already had the story for Happy Feet Two in his mind before they had finished the first one and it was an easy decision to jump straight into the sequel.

"When you work on a film like Happy Feet, the characters become part of you, they’re like imaginary friends in your head, they’re like family," he said.

"And it’s such a rich world to work in, it was very,very easy to get into it."

The buzz and excitement for Williams was so much today that almost a dozen TV media asked Williams for autographs, and he happily obliged, so we joined in the fun two. Yes, media are also fans (not just critics).

Some of the best reviews like the one done by Richard Corliss reads"….Miller is not content to duplicate the pleasures of his first penguin film; he dares to go bigger, deeper, higher — happier."

Don’t forget it’s 3D, so if you have a foot fetish or whatever, you’re in for a wonderful treat. Love the close ups of beaks too.

Round up the kids of all ages and step on down to Happy Feet Two. 4.5 out of of 5 paws (because we’re huge Robin Williams and George Miller fans). Well organised from our friends at Village Roadshow too.

Writers: George Miller, Gary Eck,

Louis Vuitton New Sydney Store VIP Party

Early today luxury brand Louis Vuitton opened a new store (Louis Vuitton George Street Maison) in Sydney, Australia, and this was followed up this evening with a VIP party with a healthy amount of celebrities and other VIP’s on hand, along with about 30 media personnel covering the black carpet outside the building.

The Louis Vuitton George Street Maison, understood to have cost in the region of million, will deliver three-storeys of men’s and women’s fashion, plus "personalised services".

The iconic French fashion brand enjoyed its VIP opening in Sydney earlier today with Australian actress Cate Blanchett getting a bit of media rub off from the event today.

Tonight many more celebs were present with the list including Ronnie Wood (Rolling Stones guitarist), Melissa Doyle, Miranda Kerr, Erika Heynatz, Delta Goodrem, Isabel Lucas, Megan Gale, Laura Bingle, Heidi Middleton, Kerri-Anne Kennerley and Samantha Harris.

Company CEO Yves Carcelle was on hand at both events, and was Oceania CEO Philip Corne.

Mr Corne advised the new development had been a long time coming for the brand, which now has 10 stores across the nation.

"We wouldn’t commit to the investment until we found the right space that allowed us to present the brand as we should," he said.

Corne understands that his brand is high end luxury and not for everyone: "People have worked hard and are rewarding themselves."

As Time magazine once said, it was the French who "practically invented the notion of luxury in the 17th century, and in the 18th century, when Marie Antoinette took up residence in Versailles, and added her own twist to the genre". After conducting a survey on global luxury, the magazine concluded Europeans regard "luxury as a means of expressing their individuality and style while placing high authenticity and pedigree".

In Sydney apparently there is a group of cashed up consumers who don’t mind spending up on luxury goods.

A big congratulations to top brass Yves Carcelle, Philip Corne, Jean-Baptiste Debains and their team for putting on a great day and evening event.

Louis Vuitton cool and hip tips: we understand that the company sometimes creates very limited amounts of personalised goods. How about a guitar case for Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, a surfboard and surfboard cover (what pro would actually use that) and even a skate-board and cover (good luck with Maroubra Beach Skatepark local boys). When LV talks "personalised services" and "personalised products", they aren’t kidding.
