Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Christine Bleakley attended the British Olympic Ball on Friday evening in London.

The TV presenter chose a royal-blue Erdem number.

Her lacey Fall 2012 design with a black silk-satin lining through body was worn with Jimmy Choo heels.

The oxblood varnish that Christine picked out here was a great idea, as was not trying to match her nails to her lips, for which she selected a muted pink hue.

A side-swept updo and a subdued black clutch completed this very tasteful but still contemporary ensemble.

Last month Solange Knowles attended a glamorous fundraiser for President Barack Obama hosted by sister Beyonce and brother-in-law Jay-Z at the 40/40 Club in New York City.

The stylish star, who’s usually fond of colour, donned all white again as she made her way into the event.

I adore her Esteban Cortazar Resort 2013 cape-back jacket. It is the hero piece of this look and she wore it with a silk shirt and a leather, twill and duchess-satin mini skirt with gold hardware.

Celebs have been falling in love with Tom Ford shoes lately and Solange is not immune to the allure of his sexy strappy sandals.

A Kayu ‘Audrey’ shell purse with a dainty top-handle and Carelle jewels completed her look.

This Valentino Pre-Fall 2012 jumpsuit has been quite the popular red-carpet item and seen in more ways than one.

Comedian and actress Kristen Wig was first to sport the bold look for the 2012 Writers Guild Awards in LA back in February.

The ‘Bridesmaids’ star styled her look with a Kotur clutch, Sergio Rossi ‘Chi Chi’ heels and a Solange Azagury-Partridge snake bracelet to complete this edgy red-carpet look.

Jada Pinkett Smith made this look her own when she attended the Capri Sun ‘Super V’ Launch back in June by transforming the piece into a fun and flirty playsuit.

It was quite a risqué look for Jada, but she looked stunning nonetheless, accessorizing with black ankle-strap sandals and a gold bracelet.

Rebecca Dayan also wore the jumpsuit to the ‘Celeste And Jessie Forever’ New York Premiere recently.

Studded Valentino accessories including T-strap ‘Hi’ pumps and a ‘Va Va Voom’ studded leather convertible clutch were added to the look with a slicked-back top-knot completing it.

While I like each star’s rendition of the Valentino creation, I’m partial to side with Rebecca on this one. The jumpsuit look suits her well and I love her choice in accessories.

Which look do you prefer? Are you a fan of the original jumpsuit or Jada’s playsuit look?

You can buy their Valentino jumpsuit from Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.

Salma Hayek first wore this commercial dress from the Alexander McQueen Spring 2012 collection when she attended the Alexander McQueen Spring 2012 presentation during Paris Fashion Week.

The coral frock was styled with a black belt, an Alexander McQueen Spring 2012 black ‘Sedna’ clutch and some simple black heels.

Interestingly enough, Olympic gold medalist Jessica Ennis chose not only the exact same dress, but styled it strikingly similar as well for ‘Athletics Night’ in London last week.

Jessica accessorized her jersey skater-skirt dress with a black belt, matching pumps and an Omega timepiece.

Small gold hooped earrings, a pretty pink lip colour and simple updo provided the finishing touches.

Even though I think both celebs could have done a little something extra to spruce up this dress for the red carpet, Jessica’s simpler approach works for me.

We would like a threepeat of this dress on the red carpet to see how this coral frock would look without the black accessories.

This summer season celebrities can’t get enough of Erin Fetherston’s signature flirty, feminine designs.

From cutesy, fun frocks to glitzy, elegant gowns and chic separates, it’s no wonder celebrity fans such as Katy Perry, Summer Glau, Ashley Tisdale and Sophia Bush have been snapping up the New York-based designer’s pieces for their red carpet looks.

Promo tours, elegant galas, summer soirees – there really isn’t an occasion where these spotlight stealing pieces can’t be worn.

Katy Perry’s pretty ombre pink flutter sleeve dress with floral appliqués made us forget how much we disliked her purple hair, while Summer Glau’s gown is most definitely a BDOTY contender.

We are looking forward to seeing more of Erin Fetherston’s designs on the red carpet.
