CFDA Awards Red Carpet

If there was a picture to depict redemption, this would be it.

Since crossing the pond, Victoria’s red carpet moments have not been showing her at her best.

Off the red carpet, not many can match her in the style department, but let’s face it Victoria Beckham’s Costume Institute Gala make-up and hair were a mess, and not many liked her peek-a-boo Marc Jacobs dress on the Victoria Secrets pink carpet.

This one-shouldered Marc Jacobs mini dress on the other hand is stunning.

We have seen ruffles on many red carpets recently, but Marc Jacobs gives this dress a twist with heart-shaped ruffles.

Her hair slicked back makes a nice change, and her foundation, this time is a close match the rest of her skin-tone.

10 out of 10 Mrs B.

Fellow Brit Naomi Campbell, the face of YSL Fall 2008, wore a YSL Fall 2008 ensemble including a black sheer shirt and black sequined jodhpur-style, billowing pants which narrowed at the ankle.

Looks like she has managed to sort out her hair issues, with a brand new weave.

Ashley Olsen is wearing a mannish Calvin Klein Resort 2009 tux, but manages to still look very feminine.

You feel that this ensemble is very much a homage to the late Yves Saint Laurent and his Le Smoking Tuxedo.

Wow, Hilary Duff is dazzling in this purple sequined Michael Kors tank dress.

I love the updo, the length of the dress, the snake-skin shoes and the stunning earrings.

Faultless.

Eva Mendes may be wearing just a plain white Calvin Klein Resort 2008 dress, but I love the detail on the bodice, which narrows at the waist, giving her a sleek silhouette.

Her jewelery is by Van Cleef & Arpels.

Eva Longoria disappoints big style.

You can usually rely on Eva to look fantastic on the red carpet, so this is a shock.

Her hair looks a big ragged. Not at all in the manor of her usual sleek styles.

The JLo eye make-up is not the right shade for her skin-tone, nor does it compliment her dress, and think this was the intention.

The Diane von Furstenberg dress has overly enhanced her, giving her a very cheap Pamela Anderson type look.

Only her clutch and her shoes survived this disaster.

Maggie Gyllenhaal was on presenting duties for the night.

Like many of the A list fashion pack, she is wearing an ensemble that has not even been uploaded on to Style.com yet, such is it newness.

She is wearing a green-and-black sheer tunic, embellished with sequins, and silk pants from the Proenza Schouler Resort 2009 collection.

Paula Patton looks so pretty with her side-swept bangs, wearing a one-shouldered belted black white and grey Michael Kors Spring 2008 floral gown.

This look is a very clean, simple and dainty look for Mandy Moore, which I love, as it suits her so well.

The white piping on her Abaeté gown prevents it from looking stale.

Famke Janssen oozes glamour in this white David Meister Fall 2008 one sleeved jersey cocktail dress. She compliments her dress with silver accessories.

Kim Cattrall who presented Tom Ford with the Menswear Designer of the Year Award, wore a dress that would have been perfect for one of her Sex And The City premieres.

This asymmetric navy Monique Lhuillier Fall 2008 gown with an embellished shoulder, has got to be one of the best looks I have ever seen on her.

Anna Wintour is as elegant and sophisticated as ever, in beige lace sheath dress with gold sequined embellishments and her trademark bob.

Amy Poehler wore a navy poppy floral demi-sheer Marc Jacobs Spring 2008 dress. The low U-neckline adds a little sex appeal.

Lipstick Jungle actress Kim Raver is also wearing Marc Jacobs Spring 2008.

Her dress shows off Marc Jacobs eccentricities, with 4 different pieces of fabric put together to make this uniquely beautiful dress. This collection seems to work better off the runway.

Kim compliment her dress with nude pumps, and a bag also from the Spring 2008 collection.

Actress Lauren Hutton is divine in this silk slate grey Calvin Klein Spring 2008 jumpsuit.

For the first time, in a longtime, I am not offended by Lil Kim. In fact I quite like this keyhole purple hearted Marc Jacobs mini dress. Even the make-up is not too brash.

Has she turned a corner? I doubt it, but it will fun to see what she wears next.

Georgina Chapman stunning as ever in her own Marchesa Fall 2008 design.

Carolina Herrera is breath-taking in this ice white tuxedo she designed. Her white satin shoes compliment her white satin lapels.

Caroline received of the Geoffrey Bean Lifetime Achievement Award.

Diane von Furstenberg showed her respect by decided against the dress she originally wanted to wear to choose this navy vintage YSL tuxedo.

Donna Karan wore this red haltered top from her own collection.

Tory Burch the Accessory Designer Of The Year winner, wore a pink dress from her own collection.

Vera Wang is of course in her own Fall 2008 creation.

    What a lovely post! I really enjoy browsing these looks! I haven’t seen Mrs Beckham looking this great for a while! Seriously, her skin looks glowing and the dress fits her beautifully!

    Olsen’s tux look is just slick and stylish! Also, I really love Georgina Chapman look – soooooo stunning! xxxxxxx

    I love Maggie, and might have enjoyed that outfit with a different hair style… Ashley Olsen rocks the YSL-esque outfit to perfection, and what the hell happened to Eva Longoria’s face?!

    For me Gerogina Chapmain,Hilary Duff,Carolina Herrera,Ms.Olsen and Mrs. Becks looked stunning
    It would have been nice if Renee Zellweger was here to show off one of Carolina’s designs as she is always great in her designs.
    Eva Longoria and Donna Karan are worst dressed here.
    Seriously who needs models when Georgina Champain struts Marchesa with such class.She looks great in all of her designs
