Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Daily Archives: January 2, 2009

OK, so it looks like I was not done talking about Beyonce for the day.

Whilst on a much deserved vacation in St Barts, prior to her New Year’s celebrations, Beyonce was seen shopping around town on Monday wearing a white and grey stripped Chanel Resort 2009 dress, with an embellished neckline.

I don’t think I have ever seen a celebrity wear something from the Resort collections whilst actually on vacation.

As you can see, the humidity has really taken a hold of her hair, but she’s on vacation, and the last thing she wants to do is straighten her hair every morning.

Anne Hathaway has also wore this dress, but I didn’t think it was fair to do a comparison.

Maybe on her shopping trip Beyonce picked up this Milly coral print bikini.

B wore her Milly swimsuit, when she was relaxing on a yacht with her husband as they soaked in the Caribbean sun.

She also wore a matching Milly Caftan, whilst going out on jet-ski’s.

It is rare for me to do two Beyonce posts in one day, but there is nothing much going on today.

I found these candids of Beyonce as she was ringing in the New Year at Nikki Beach restaurant in St. Barts.

The singer is seen here with her husband, who appears be channeling Steve Erkel. Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon, LA Reid, and Marc Jacobs were also there.

Beyonce, with her hair frizzy from the sea air, wore a black embellished Marc Jacobs Resort 2009 tulip wrap dress, with three-quarter length sleeves and a black sash at the waist.

Beyonce Knowles had a lot of covers during 2008 and it looks like it will not stop in 2009, as she graces the cover of Elle US January 2009.

The singer/actress looks slightly over-airbrushed on the cover, wearing a purple Emporio Armani one-shoulder dress with a Marc Jacobs Spring 2009 metallic sash tied to the waist.

On her relationship with Jay-Z: “It’s a power struggle. But if I didn’t respect someone and they didn’t have that strength, then I would be bored. I wouldn’t be attracted to them.”

On her life: “There are a lot of things I never did, because I believe in watching those true Hollywood stories and I see how easy it is to lose track of your life. Think about Marilyn Monroe.”

On having a baby: “No way! I’m terrified of delivering a child because I saw my nephew being born. That traumatized me. I’m only 27. I’ve got time.”

On being affected by playing Etta James: “My mom had to leave the set. I don’t normally curse. Maybe twice a year. I have to be really livid. Somebody saying things or scheduling something where I’m not in control. It was freeing, but it was also the most emotionally draining time of my life. Every day I would come home; my eyes would be completely swollen.”

Tina on Sasha Fierce: “Her cousin Angie gave her that name. We’d tease Beyonce about having a split personality. Me and Angie and Ty, her stylist, would work with her doing a quick change when she’d come off the stage between sets. Beyone would start screaming, “What’s wrong with you? Where’s my shoe?” Uh oh, we’d say, “Sasha is here.” I’m like, This is some crazy person who’s doing this quick change. She’s another person up there. We don’t take it personally. Sasha is her bragging side I don’t know whether to say it, but her hip-hop side.”

Eva Longoria Parker is fast becoming the unofficial face of Karen Millen, as this is the third time in a row that the actress has worn a dress from the British high street brand on the red carpet.

The official face of the brand is “model” Daisy Lowe.

On New Year’s Eve, a longer haired Eva, held a party at her Beso restaurant in LA wearing a black fringed Karen Millen dress, which had a sheer yoke. She wore her dress with black YSL Trib Two patent heels, and a black clutch.

The dress is currently sold out on Karen Millen’s website, but you may still be able to find some in-stores.

Update: The dress is now back in stock, and available to purchase from for £85.


We have not seen much of Leighton Meester of late, as she seems to have been concentrating more on her work, rather than walking the red carpet.

During Spring 2009 New York Fashion Week, Leighton was front row at many shows including Jason Wu, Julie Haus, Diane von Furstenberg and the 3.1 Phillip Lim show, were she was spotted wearing this 3.1 Phillip Lim Diamante embroidered dress.

The cute off white-and-black sleeveless shift mini dress, has diamante embroidered detailing and side pockets, which the actress wore with silver sandals.

You can be channel front row chic by purchasing this dress from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $675, or the international site for £479.57/€638.41.


Agyness Deyn attended the Giles Deacon Spring 2009 fashion show after-party during London Fashion Week at back in September wearing a sheer nude top, a black blazer with a yellow lining, Giles Spring 2009 silver zipped biker pants, and silver studded strappy sandals.

Katie Grand, the former editor of Pop Magazine attended the British Fashion Awards 2008 held at The Lawrence Hall in London wearing the same silver pants.

She wore her pants with a simple black sheer tee and a black boa also from the Spring 2009 show.

Agyness wins this for me.
