DALLAS, Dec 1, 2010 / FW/ — The first day of the last month of the year and 24 days before Christmas! Squeeee!!! But, before I start making my list, I better see to the celebrity sightings that had been coming in my inbox since day after Thanksgiving.

Wednesday, November 24, 2010 at the Hesperia Hotel in Madrid, Spain, actress Leighton Meester chose to wear Versus to her “Herbal Essences” Photocall.

The “Gossip Girl” actress chose a look from the Versus Fall 2010 Collection — she wore a gorgeous black chiffon and velvet cocktail dress with a full skirt, gathered at the waist and accented with a leather belt detail in the front.

Earlier last month, on November 10 to be exact, Beth Ditto wore an Alexandre Vauthier couture dress during her appearance X Factor UK.

Jumping a couple of weeks and crossing the Atlantic Ocean, songstress Kylie Minogue was seen wearing a black Roberto Cavalli jacket with leather fringe and black suede Roberto Cavalli boots with metal chains while she was out and about in New York City on November 29th.

Speaking of Roberto Cavalli, the Florentine designer is truly a favorite among the celebrity set. Eva Herzigova and Afef in Moscow echoed Kylie Minogue’s choice of Roberto Cavalli in New York.

During the 2011 Pirelli Calendar Presentation in Mosco on Tuesday, November 30th, Eva Herzigova opted for a blue/green jersey silk Roberto Cavalli gown while Afef chose a plum silk chiffon Roberto Cavalli gown.

Meanwhile, another Italian fashion house caught the eyes of Hilary Swank. The Academy Award winning actress wore an Emilio dress and sandals from the Fall / Winter 2010 collection when she made her appearance at the IFP’s 20th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards last November 29, 2010 in New York City.
