Welcome To The New & Improved Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Welcome to the new and improved Red Carpet Fashion Awards.

If you view the site via google reader, or via email, now’s the time to come and see the many changes I have made.

I’ve added a separate page called Shop Her Closet, so you can find where to purchase that cute blue playsuit which Blake Lively wore this week, amongst other celebrities clothes, shoes and accessories.

The Red Carpet Events page, is a quick guide to all the annual events, including the Oscars, the Emmy’s, and MTV Music Awards.

R1ma wished for Angelina Jolie to wear Versace at the “Inglourious Basterds” Cannes premiere, and got it right.

Which celebrity would you like to see wearing your favourite runway looks? Send me an email, and I will add it to Red Carpet Wish List.

Featured Event in the right column, will be updated to take you down memory, or allow you to catch up on an event you’ve missed.

If you agree or disagree with someone’s comment, a new feature will allow you to reply directly to their comment.

The search engine has been split between celebrities, designers and features, in order for you find things quicker, and the Most Popular section at the bottom, shows you what we’ve been gabbing about the most.

It’s been 4 months in the making, and it got pretty intense the last 2 weeks with working on the site, and keeping up with Cannes, but I hope you like it.

Best Dressed Of The Week will be announced, as usual, tomorrow.

    I love it!

  4. Goodie May 23, 2009 at 13:03 #

    I’m happy to see the new design! I always wondered why such a stylish person with wonderful blog had so unimaginative top picture. Now the style of the site completely corresponds to the content :) Great!

  5. marika May 23, 2009 at 13:10 #

    OMIGOSH!!! i am so happy for u!! i’m glad that i’m ( i think) one of the first people who read your blog. wow i love it! congratulations!

    • Fashion Critic May 23, 2009 at 13:13 #

      Thanks Marika, and thanks for sticking with me. :)

  6. Dana May 23, 2009 at 13:23 #

    Congrats, FC! This must have taken a TON of work! It looks really sleek and stylish, just like you and, we hope, the celebs. ;)
    Thanks for providing those new features- they’re great!

    Have a great weekend- you deserve a break!

  7. Chantal May 23, 2009 at 13:42 #

    I love it! Congrats on the new site.The new search function is perfect and the Red Carpet Wish List feature is so cool! Congrats again and have a great weekend!

  8. Davor May 23, 2009 at 13:51 #

    Congratulations! I really like the new design (especially the ‘stylish’ top), although when the page is scrolled down, the backround is completely black which is kind of boring – sorry, I wanna be honest. But, all in all, good job! You definitely put your work on a much higher level! Your competition (if even exists) can eat your dust now!

  9. Ev May 23, 2009 at 14:11 #

    Congrats on the new design!
    Have a great weekend!

  10. maru May 23, 2009 at 14:20 #

    Terrific job! Congratulations :)

  11. Aicha May 23, 2009 at 14:37 #

    I love the new layout! However I do have a question…is it essential to have one advertisement above the banner? I just feel like it takes away from the look and feel of the site.
    I especially love the new provisions that have been made, such as the specialised search. Thanks for putting in all the effort : )

    • Fashion Critic May 23, 2009 at 14:39 #

      It is kinda is essential. If you look at any website, they all have the leaderboard banner.

      Thanks for your comment :)

    • Goodie May 23, 2009 at 14:53 #

      For me, that leaderboard banner fits very well with the general layout of the site.

  12. Rock*Star May 23, 2009 at 14:50 #

    WOW! everything looks fantastic. I specialy love the Search feature. I used to have a hard time looking for specific names!

    I think the new look is so modern and sophisticated.
    Good job ;) & way to go :)

    • Fashion Critic May 23, 2009 at 14:53 #

      Yep the search feature was my main goal to improve. The tag cloud really wasn’t helpful.

  13. Dorian Gray May 23, 2009 at 15:17 #

    Congratulations! This blog now is even better that before! Thanks 4 your hard work! I wish to see more Versace dresses on the red carpets (but lately there were been more :-)

  14. IJ May 23, 2009 at 15:27 #

    I love it! Congrats!

  15. Erika May 23, 2009 at 15:39 #

    I really love the new look too. I hope this is constructive: Fashion Critic, your work on this site is admirable, my only wish is that you’d always tag everyone. That way your readers could find even the smaller celebrities you’ve featured on your site but maybe forgot to tag :) I’m sure you try and work very hard on your site and I’m definitely always impressed!

    • Fashion Critic May 23, 2009 at 15:42 #

      You make a very good point.

      Blogger had a lot of restrictions. You could only tag up to 200 characters.

      It’s small details like this that made me move to my own stand alone site.

      Thanks :)

  16. Nawar May 23, 2009 at 15:39 #

      Thanks so much Sabina.

      Someone else said the same thing earlier today, and I’m so happy to have such loyal readers.

      You would have seen all the changes, from not really knowing what I was doing to now.

      Thanks for sticking with me. Means a lot.

      :)

    Your new interface is amazing! More glamorous and shimmering! I get addicted to your site. Visit it not less than 5 times a day! Thank you so much for all of your efforts! Love from Vietnam!

  43. Jana May 24, 2009 at 05:49 #

    This is absolutely gorgeus!!!
    I usually read the blog at googlereader and never commented, but I had to come and see this!
    Love the sparkling lights on the top, and I like the black background when you scrolldown…because it doesn’t distract me from the great pictures!
    The new layout has a very chic feel. And the new features are awesome too…
    Congratulations…it looks amazing!

    • Fashion Critic May 24, 2009 at 08:42 #

      I was shocked when they first showed me the black background, it took 3 people to convince me it looked better. Like you say it doesn’t distract from the pictures, and I think it’s easier on the eye I think.

  44. CathyG May 24, 2009 at 06:30 #

    Such a fab site, probably my favorite celeb based site- no bitchy gossip, just pretty (and occasionally not so pretty) clothes! Congratulations, and thank you for all your hard work!

    I love the new layout too- i really like the idea of the “upcoming” events calendar, great addition

  45. Nathalie May 24, 2009 at 06:53 #

  46. Barbara May 24, 2009 at 08:23 #
