It's been a while since my last post from Miami Fashion Week. I spent last weekend in San Diego for the International Comic Convention, where high fashion was sci-fi T-shirts and cargo shorts. Batman costumes took over the hallways of the convention center, so there wasn't much to post about. I missed Styledash, but I'm back with a bang of an event.

Critically acclaimed director Woody Allen's 43rd film, "Vicky Cristina Barcelona," brings together actor Javier Bardem and girlfriend Penelope Cruz with the ever talented Scarlett Johansson. The Los Angeles premiere brought them together again in top designer dresses. Scarlett in Monique Lhullier. Penelope in Herve L. Leroux. Selma in Balenciaga. These women of Hollywood stormed the red carpet in high fashion.

Scarlet won the fashion contest for last night in the Phillipino fashion designer's red gown, and with two of Hollywood's fashion elite on the carpet, that's a victory that deserves a trophy, right?

See the dresses from the premiere in my gallery below.
