Keri Hilson In Aurelio Costarella – 2011 Critics’ Choice Awards

Best Mini Award
Keri Hilson was one of my favourites at the 2011 Critics’ Choice Awards.

She wore cute yet sexy mini by Australian designer, Aurelio Costarella.

The corseted dress with a sheer yoke, embellished bustier and bell-shaped skirt is just the type of youthful sexy dress I would expect someone like Keri to rock on the red carpet.

Her look was styled with an Isharya gold mirrored polki ring and gold lace accented heels.

I’m sensing whoever made these took inspiration from Alexander McQueen, but they didn’t quite have the finesse to make them as well as they ones designed by McQueen.

Update: These heels were custom-made by Alana Hale.

    Jesus H. Christ! Those shoes are hideous!

    I like this look, but not for this occasion.

    FC, who do you think was the best dressed at this event?

      eva mendes

    You make a very good point about those shoes. I could see a real pair of McQeen gold shoes looking really good, though. Good observation.

    the shoes look hideous up close but the dress is cute.

    Hahaha FC your comment about her shoes seems like a very polite way of saying they were hideous. I agree, they are awful mean YIKES. I still don’t like her hair but the dress is cute I suppose.

      As polite as I could be ;)

    hmm i think this is my favourite Keri Hilson look…too bad about the shoes though.

  7. Ashley Spiker January 15, 2011 at 21:40 #

    I think they were made by Gasoline Glamour…or her 11 year old cousin.

    • Fashion Critic January 15, 2011 at 22:21 #

      I just googled Gasoline Glamour and I think their shoes are far superior to Keri’s shoes so I will go for 11 year old cousin ;)

    What on earth is she doing here?

    The shoes are beyond FUG

  9. Michelle January 15, 2011 at 22:37 #

    She needed to go up a size in this or have it fitted better because her skirt is too short and too tight. Because of this, the skirt is lacking the cute “pouffiness” and pleating, which is what makes the whole look on the model. However, I am sure that a lot of these celebs request “shorter!” and “tighter!” while being fitted, thus often times ruining the intended shape and lines of the garment.

    And — because it cannot be said enough — the shoes are HID-E-OUS. Grandma’s doilies spray painted gold .. the horrors.

    Cute purple polish though.

    did she do a diy?

    Dancing on Ice is back isn’t it…that dress just reminded me…

  12. june January 15, 2011 at 23:50 #

    i can’t say this is quite event appropriate either. and the shoes are awful on her. fun concept, dubious execution

  13. Giuseppi Giraffe January 16, 2011 at 03:30 #

    Those shoes are OUTRAGEOUS! and I’m not sure if i mean that in a good way or a bad way, but i think i love them to death. or maybe i hate them. i’m directly in the middle of two extreems, but i hafta say- when i saw the top pic, i thought they were the mcqueen’s too. i think they are mcqueen knock-offs (er… i mean mcqueen INSPIRED)

  14. zdir January 16, 2011 at 04:27 #

    how can this be considered one of your favourites and event appropriate yet khloe kardishian’s is not?

  15. Alina January 16, 2011 at 07:37 #

    She wanted to make a fashion statement but failed miserably.

  16. Martin January 16, 2011 at 10:03 #

    Cute dress, but these shoes are truly atrocious though. The cheap lace, the tacky-looking pearls, the silver platform, my eyes are burning.

  17. Jones19 January 16, 2011 at 11:47 #

    Oh wow those shoes look terrible up close…like the dress on her though.

  18. T. January 16, 2011 at 12:32 #

    She needs a pair of REAL McQueen’s!

  19. Jinni January 17, 2011 at 15:23 #

    The shoes are terrible….reminds me of a kids art project.
