Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Kristen Wiig went for a vintage-inspired look for the ‘Imogenee’ premiere during the Toronto Film Festival last week.

The actress, writer and comedian wore a dress from the Alberta Ferretti Pre-Fall 2012 collection for the event.

I love this laid-back nod to the 20s look on Kirsten. The dark purple goes well against her fair skin and dark hair, while the semi-casual fit seems to suit her personality.

The shoes, however, are an odd match, though it could be the photography and the light, and the necklace is an unnecessary addition.

Loose waves and pastel pink make-up complete her look.

Emily Blunt got in touch with her ethical side for the ‘Arthur Newman’ premiere during the 2012 Toronto Film Festival last night.

For the event, the British actress opted for a dress made by Tory Burch for the Green Carpet Challenge.

All I can say is ‘bravo.’

The white ruched dress is made from silk tulle reclaimed from Tory Burch’s end of line and archive store, while the neckline is constructed of recycled brass and features floral motifs made from amber and light topaz.

Although ruching of this intensity is difficult to pull off because it adds so much extra bulk, Emily is able to carry this look off.

Grey heels, patterned clutch and a hot pink lip also help to lift this eco chic ensemble.

Zhou Xun called upon her inner French maid of the ‘Cloud Atlas’ premiere during the 2012 Toronto Film Festival on Saturday night.

The actress hit to the red carpet in a frothy black and white concoction from Chanel’s Resort 2013 collection.

To be fair, Zhou Xun looked far better in this dress than the model – I’m so glad she wore a pair of Charlotte Olympia pumps instead of those brothel creepers and opted for natural make-up over red eye shadow and a faux beauty spot.

A chunky cream cuff and simple updo completed her look.

Salma Hayek attended the 38th Deauville American Film Festival Closing Ceremony on Saturday night.

For the event the actress chose to wear a gown by British designer Stella McCartney.

Salma looked her stunning self on the red carpet, but I’m not sure everything about this dress works.

While the skirt is a great length – showing offer her slim ankles and peep-toe platforms – the reverse scoop bodice seems to jolt. Perhaps it’s because I’m so used to seeing her enhancing rather than hiding her cleavage?

I love the pop of colour provided by her aqua Judith Leiber East/West crocodile clutch and Graziela earrings.

Olga Kurylenko joined her co-star Rachel McAdams in green for the ‘To The Wonder’ premiere during the Toronto Film Festival last night.

In another style snap moment with Rachel, Olga also chose to wear Lebanese designer Elie Saab. This dress is from his Fall 2012 Couture collection.

Where Rachel’s dress was low-key, however, Olga’s has the wow factor.

Everything about this piece looks beautiful on her, from the colour and beading to the plunging neckline and cinched waist. The gold box clutch works well too.

Forties curls, natural make-up and black pumps finish her look.

Nina Dobrev attended ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ premiere held at the Arclight Cinerama Dome in LA yesterday evening.

For the event, the actress opted for a cleavage-enhancing Reem Acra dress.

Unlike co-star Emma Watson’s low-key ensemble, Nina’s look packed a bright red punch.

The lace detail is on trend and the shoes are pretty.

Do you love the red, or would you have preferred it if she’d opted for the black version pictured below?

A loose updo and Anita Ko 18k yellow gold and pave diamond stud earrings finished her look.
