2009 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Katy Perry looked sensational wearing a thigh-skimming strapless Foley + Corinna dress, adorned with an oversized bow.

Her turquoise dress was set alight with bold red lippie, sky-high blood red Casadei heels, and a red Lulu Guinness lips clutch.

You all know how I feel about tights on the red carpet, so I don’t need to go there.

Amanda Seyfried was very easily my Best Dressed at this event, where she won Film Actress of the Year.

The “Mamma Mia” actress opted for a Peter Pilotto Fall 2009 multi-coloured satin dress, which gathers and drapes from the hip.

I do wish she had worn her hair back, as a lot of the interesting detail appears on the neckline and shoulders, but her sexy strappy gladiator heels, and gold clutch more than make up for that.

Estelle usually opts for complicated, edgy ensembles, but on this occasion she opted for a very beautiful and simple Stella McCartney shell print dress

The slender star wore her dress with a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood pearl and lace peep-toe pumps.

Estelle got the Editor’s Special Award. I will guess this is for conquering America, and just being fabulous.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley oozed effortless chic. The former Burberry model wore a simple black crystal embellished Gucci Fall 2009 mini dress, with open toe shoe boots from the same collection.

Jacquetta Wheeler also wore head-to-toe Gucci. Her look consisted of a dazzling silver sequined tunic, with black leggings, which I prefer to the runway grey version.

Her rock chick look is soften by the Gucci jeweled sandals, but I love that she didn’t opt out of the large chain statement necklace, as it gives her soft rock look an edge.

The two ladies represented Frida Giannini, who was awarded Fashion Designer of the Year.

Alexa Chung, the unofficial Chanel brand ambassador, won Presenter of the Year. She wore a ruffled shouldered silk mini dress, with a nipped in waist.

There’s not point mentioning the hair, as she rarely switches things up.

Her black and white sequined Chanel Spring 2009 ankle boots are worth mentioning. I love the bejeweled oversized bows.

For once this doesn’t feel like she tried too hard, this is the effortless Alexa I once really admired.

Kylie Minogue was named Woman Of The Year and Entrepreneur Of The Year at this event.

She wore her Emanuel Ungaro LBD with a swirly gold embellishment, with a leopard print cropped Dolce & Gabbana jacket, which she paired with a large gold pendent, gold Jimmy Choo’s, and a matching clutch.

Kylie always looks like she’s stuck in the 80s. I’m not a fan of this look at all.

Writer of the Year, Sophie Kinsella looked effortlessly gorgeous wearing a floral print Christian Lacroix Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with a jewel embellished collar detail.

Her ruby red metallic heels perfected this look, making her one of the Best Dressed at this event.

Fearne Cotton never lets me down on the red carpet. She arrived wearing a Moschino red satin dress, with a huge ruffled skirt, in red Moschino pumps, which showed off her tattoo.

I love her blonde hair styled in this big frizzy wave, and her cat-eyes.

Becki Newton, Comedy Actress of the Year, opted for this cute strapless Robert Cavalli pearl-print mini dress, which showed off her killer bod.

Her hair is a bit blah, as are the heels, but she did the right thing by keeping her accessories to a minimum.

Rachel Stevens dressed appropriately for the baking hot weather we experienced in London yesterday.

She opted for a soft pink chiffon dress, with a pleated skirt, and cowl neck, which she accessorised with an Anya Hindmarch Marbled leather clutch clutch, and white T-bar heels.

Having spent some time in the US, Michelle Ryan doesn’t appear to have picked up many red carpet tips. She’s wearing a gorgeous hot pink bubble sleeved Balenciaga maxi dress, but she is not injecting much life into it.

The only thing that excites is her statement necklace.

She won UK TV Actress of the Year at this event.

Kirsty Gallacher continues to fall down in my estimation. This time the TV presenter wore a asymmetrical body-con dress with fabric that was so sheer, you would see her nipples.

    Love Katy Perry, Rosie Huntigton, Alexa Chung and Fearne Cotton..

    Diane Kruger wore those Chanel shoes when she was out and about in Cannes, love them but feel like on Alexa it’s too much, like she’s trying too hard.

    Loved Rosie Huntingdon Whiteley and Jacquetta Wheeler – who thankfully is no longer looking as thin.

    What?? you big upped kate perry even though she was wearing those disaster tights?? FC?? I can’t figure you out anymore, you continue to surprise me!

    • Fashion Critic June 3, 2009 at 13:50 #

      Again????

      It’s clear that I don’t like the tights, but when I mention it, I get blasted for it. Now when I don’t mention it, I get blasted for it.

      I just can’t win.

      The bottom line is she looks great.

  4. Swatky June 3, 2009 at 13:48 #

    Katty Perry should have gone without those tights… But it all forgiven, because I’m in love with her shoes… :-) Estelle & Becky sre cute, but other women are just blah for me… :-( I expected more…

  5. Aideen June 3, 2009 at 13:59 #

    I dont understand why anyone would wear white shoes with anything, even white, they always look like cheap hooker shoes! and nude would have worked so much better on rachel

  6. Cleopatra June 3, 2009 at 14:31 #

    Oh FC don’t get upset, you are ALWAYS a winner in my eyes! isnt it bad enough that we have one website less to play with since you closed out of victoria beckam, which means we have to take out all our energy on you here!

  7. robbie June 3, 2009 at 15:05 #

    katy, it is cute but im over her.

    amanda, i really like this look. it seems rather edgy for her, usually she is cute but this is more edgy love it. her shoes are jimmy choo, the same ones hilary rhoda wore.

    estelle, i love the dress but the shoes are what i am drooling over. i think those are nicholas kirkwood, im onlt taking a guess due to the pearls i have seen some of his shoes with the same detail.

    rosie, very nice but i hate those booties.

    jacquetta, love it, everything is nice, i love those sandals.

    alexa, nice BUT im more interested in those ankle boots. which is strange since i HATE ankloe boots. i want those.

    fearne, i love it all except the madonna hair style. im not a fan of frizzy hair.

    becki, HOT! the dress and the shoes are fabulous, the hair is lovely. but i wish she wouldnt do her “mean” face on the red carpet.

    rachel, blah not lovely it or liking it.

    kylie, PERECT! although im not sure about the cropped jacket. her shoes are also jimmy choo (LOVE THEM)

    michelle, boring.

    kirsty, i laughed so hard when i saw pictures of her, it wasnt just showing breast you could actually see her whole nipples in detail. so sad yet so funny.

    Hey FC, Michelle Ryan’s dress is by Balenciaga, Julianne Moore wore the same dress before.

      :) Forgot about that thanks

    • Fashion Critic June 3, 2009 at 17:25 #

      The print has been bugging me too. I can’t place it either.

      The Giamb print it pretty close.

    Wow,there are so many beautiful girls at this event; and I really really love their shoes.
    Let’s start:
    Katy looks very beautiful,but I’d change the hair,too vintage.Lovely heels.
    Amanda,with this soft hair,is great and also the dress and the shoes,of course.
    I’m not crazy about Estelle’s dress but again,stunning shoes.
    Rosie and Jacquetta are brightful,and the Gucci boots are rocking.
    Alexa is cute here,except the hair.My favourite thing?Chanel shoes!
    Fearne looks like a very cute doll.
    Becki is totally sexy and pretty.
    Rachel is easy and cute.
    Kylie,no,I don’t like anything.
    Michelle doesn’t shines,a bit boring.
    Kirsty would have been stunning with a bra.What a shame…
    That’s all ^^

    love what amanda seyfried was wearing

  12. nicole June 3, 2009 at 17:20 #

    katy amanda and rachel are the only ones who seem to have got it right. i love Katy’s shoes and dont mind the tights that much.

  13. Hannah June 3, 2009 at 17:30 #

    I like all of the pieces that Alexa Chung is wearing, but together, they seem awkward. Nude dress, black and white shoes, AND a turquoise ring? It feels like she just decided to wear all her favorite things whether they looked good together or not.

  14. Alexandra June 3, 2009 at 17:45 #

    Katy – I adore her style, she looks so beautiful. However, she could have done without the tights. These gorgeous shoes would look amazing on the bare skin. Plus, this clutch is just lovely.

    Alexa Chung – I couldn’t understand why a girl who wants to be seen as a style icon, insists on having such a hideous hairstyle. It looks like really huge roots. I don’t get it. But I like her ring.

  15. zoe June 3, 2009 at 23:25 #

    what is happening to kirsty gallacher? is she aspiring to be a porn star?

    i am absolutely loving amanda seyfried here. this is the best and sexiest she has ever looked. i just love those shoes.

    estelle has been looking so fab lately. :) i like this look a lot.

    alexa looks better than usual but i’m not going to warm up to her until this is a regular thing.

    i’m also lovingggg rachel, rosie and fearne :)

  16. robbie June 4, 2009 at 01:03 #

    kylie is wearing an ungaro dress and her jacket is by dolce and gabbana.

  17. robbie June 4, 2009 at 01:07 #

    sorry for yet another comment kylies dress is from the fall 2007 ungaro collection

  18. Caleb June 4, 2009 at 10:18 #

    Kirsty looks stunning, even without the see through she would look stunning, after having a child not so long ago her body is a clear message to (any lazy women who are overweight and just blame it on having kids) excercise! Katy’s outufit is really nice, agree, she should change her hair, its old and now its getting older.

  19. SarahV June 4, 2009 at 10:34 #

    I can’t really focus on what Kylie’s wearing because her face destracts me too much…
    It looks so botoxed! Gross!

  20. T June 4, 2009 at 11:06 #

    Kylie’s forehead freaks me out.

  21. jennyw June 4, 2009 at 12:13 #

    I love Beki’s cute pearl print dress but Amanda’s look is unbelievable. Anybody know who makes the shoes?

    • robbie June 4, 2009 at 12:58 #

      her shoes are jimmy choo from their fall 2009 collection, the style name for them in “verity” ;-). hope that helps.

    • Fashion Critic June 5, 2009 at 15:23 #

      You are…A SUPERSTAR.

      Thank you :)

      • Sassy June 5, 2009 at 15:52 #

        Happy to help :)

  22. whitestroke June 5, 2009 at 20:16 #

    Amanda Seyfried – Oh? The dress fails to work off the runway.

    Estelle – That was my fav dress from that collection. But I don’t like it with the belt. Nooo! What have you done?

    Gucci girls are so boring and bleh. Like that entire collection was.

    I love love LOVE this look on Alexa Chung. I love the dress and the shoes look so great on her.
