It was a jam-packed week, and the smell of summer was strong in the air! We got to spy the beautiful spring/summer collections of some of our favourite labels, and BellaSugar Editor Alison trialled some tutti-frutti nail polishes that we all can't wait to get our paws on. It seemed like the Sugar office was in sync this week — things got matchy-matchy, fashion-wise, and we have the pics to prove it! We also got some photographic evidence of PopSugar Editor Jess catching up with the flurry of lovely celebs who hit Sydney's shores this week. As always, we paused in amongst the madness to enjoy some extremely delicious treats — namely, take-away pizza, Marc Jacobs cake pops and banana-peanut concoctions that were almost too pretty to eat. Wanna see more? Kick up your heels and click through to see exactly what else Sugar got up to this week. Happy weekend, peeps!
Talk about celeb-overload! The Star's new nightclub, Marquee, attracted a strong contingent of international of celebrities for Friday night's much-hyped opening party in Sydney. Paris Hilton headlined the A-list guest list in a sparkling Rachel Gilbert design, whilst Minka Kelly, Ashlee Simpson, Joe Jonas, Nick and Vanessa Lachey rounded out the Hollywood crew. Expat Aussies also made the trip home for the event, with Abbie Cornish looking lovely in a green Alberta Ferretti number, Sharnee Vinson wearing Aje and a Yeojin Bae-clad Isabel Lucas all frocking up for the purple carpet. Short, sexy, bright and very sparkly; the party-hard dress code was most definitely adhered to by the celebrity attendees. See all the party pics!
Did you catch Ricki-Lee Coulter steaming things up on the red rug last night? The newly slim singer wowed crowds with her sizzling physique, showed off to perfection in a figure hugging LBD with side cut-outs by White Suede. She amped up her pin-power via pair of nude Yves Saint Laurent pumps. She let her newly lightened mane be the focal point by forgoing statement making accessories (bar a single cocktail ring) for her red carpet strut. So c'mon peeps, what do we think? Rate it? Or hate it?

Australian Idol alumni Ricki-Lee Coulter turns 26 today, so to mark the occasion we're taking a look through her red carpet moments from over the years. She shot to fame after coming in seventh place on the hit television series, and was instantly offered a recording contract. After a short stint with girl group The Young Divas and a radio gig for Nova 969, she went back to singing and hasn't looked back. With a new love in personal trainer Richard Harrison, a sizzling bikini body and the just-released single "Raining Diamonds," things are definitely on the up for the talented singer! Happy Birthday, Ricki-Lee — we hope you have a great one!
Happy Birthday Ricki-Lee! The singer shot to fame after she made the top ten in Australian Idol in 2004 and was offered a recording contract, leading to great success — her first album went double platinum. Along with singing, she also dabbeled in radio and television, and on the beauty front, we saw her wear her luscious chocolate locks styled in loose and wavy curls as well as sleek and straight. Ricki-Lee also professes to doing her own makeup, regularly opting for a clear, radiant complexion and lashings of lashes. And as for that new enviable bikini body, the singer showed it off on the cover of the November issue of Maxim magazine! Come with us on a trip down memory lane to see the best of her beauty looks where you can watch her style evolve!
Ricki-Lee Coulter's come a long way since her Australian Idol days, revealing not only a svelte new figure courtesy of a healthier lifestyle, but also a new lease on life. She credits her enviable chocolate locks to the wonders of macadamia nuts, swears by St. Tropez for an all-year glow and can't go past Kiehl's for keeping her body photo shoot-ready. Keen to step inside her makeup bag? Walk right this way . . .
We loved Ricki-Lee's lilac look at Melbourne Cup on Tuesday and she looks equally as pretty today. Dang her skin looks good. So fresh and radiant and full of glowy goodness. Note how we said "radiant," not "shiny." Because, most celebs have been battling against the latter in a bid to look like the former. They all need to get on to Ricki-Lee for some advice because she has nailed it. Beautiful eye makeup, paired with a nude lip and hair back. Aces, we say. You?

The gorgeous Ricki-Lee Coulter was a vision in lilac as she hit Flemington yesterday, proving that she's moving onwards and upwards after her "shock" sacking from Nova. The 24-year-old hit the Cup with her boyfriend and we're suspecting that she paired her Alex Perry frock with makeup by Ricki-Lee Coulter. The singer is known for doing her own makeup on shoots and sets and we think she's done a great job. Her brows were groomed to perfection, her eye had just the right hint of smokiness to them, and her lashes, while obviously faux, weren't heavy and spidery like some that we spotted yesterday. Paired with a lilac lip, we say aces. You too?

Aussie stars braved the cold for the Australian premiere of Sex and The City 2 last Friday night, and judging by some of the outfits, black was the colour of choice for their flirty looks. Jennifer Hawkins showcased a sleek leather pants and blazer combo, teamed with striking Samantha-esque red over the knee heels and Chanel necklace, while Lyndsey Rodrigues matched some cute pink satin heels with her sleeved LBD. Carrie would be proud! Ricki-Lee chose a body-con black and gold dress with a studded clutch and platforms, and Megan Gale dared to bare in a zip and harness detailed pants and top outfit. Saucy!
Which Aussie celeb do you think looked most fab for SATC 2?
