Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Ciara slipped into an athletic-inspired Mason by Michelle Mason leather tank dress for the Billboard Women in Music Luncheon on Friday.

Though the thigh-skimming dress is snug, its slim silhouette fits Ciara’s taut physique impeccably.

Matching pumps finish the look, while her honey-blond highlights lighten up the all-black ensemble.

I’m still unsure about that bracelet, however.

Anyone else feel Ciara should’ve left it at home?

Kim Min-Hee wowed in ice-cool Versace at the Blue Dragon Film Awards in Seoul on Friday.

The Korean television and film actress sagely forwent any accessories save a pair of minuscule earrings to accompany the frosty sequined and paillette-adorned sheath from Donatella’s Fall 2012 ready-to-wear line.

Kim Min-Hee ’s best decision was to keep her hair casual with such a show-stopping dress—the unfussy ponytail and choppy bangs add a youthful nonchalance that would’ve been lost with a more manicured ’do.

You may remember that Doutzen Kroes wore this same Versace gown to the amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala during Cannes Film Festival.

Carly Rae Jepsen zipped into a sparkly blue Rachel Zoe frock for Billboard’s Women in Music Luncheon on Friday.

The playful design from the stylist-turned reality star-turned designer’s Resort 2013 collection looked pitch-perfect on Carly, though I can’t say the same about her oversize DVF clutch and matte-mauve lipstick.

For a rock’n’roll industry event such as this, Carly could’ve gone edgier by subbing in sleeker accessories: a leather cuff in lieu of that forgettable bracelet, a pair of noirish single-sole Alexander Wang slingbacks over those Brian Atwood covered-platform clunkers, and topped it off with her dark tresses pulled back into a low ponytail.

How would you have reaccessorized Carly’s look?

For the Mnet Asian Music Awards on Friday, Hong Kong model/actress Angelababy stepped out in one of recently departed Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière’s sculpted looks for spring.

The futuristic-flamenco skirt and bell-sleeved crop top were a bold pick for the performer, who would’ve done right by Ghesquière’s rigorous design by sticking to the austere styling presented on the runway.

While Angelababy’s gold heels and tribal Pamela Love turquoise bib necklace made for creative additions, the latter’s Pamela Love cuff counterpart took geometry a shape too far.

Further damage was done by incongruous drop earrings, another superfluous bracelet, and pageant queen two-tone locks.

I’d be eager to see a do-over of the avant ensemble on a Balenciaga devotee such as Jennifer Connelly or Charlotte Gainsbourg.

Which actress do you picture trying this on for size?

Helen Hunt dazzled on the red carpet for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards on Friday evening.

The Oscar-winning actress, who has been getting awards buzz for her part as a sympathetic sex therapist in ‘The Sessions’, appeared totally at ease wearing a sleeveless Amen Couture look that flaunted her toned arms and flawless skin.

Her nude embellished gown was accessorized with a smattering of thin Martin Katz bangles, a shimmering clutch, and thin dangle earrings were right on the mark and played off the dress’s baroque beading beautifully.

Is this a BDOTW contender?
