Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Instead of opting for a big-name designer, Jamie King chose Topshop to produce her look for the Met Gala in New York City on Monday evening.

Donning a sleek suit with a lace turtleneck underneath, the ‘Hart of Dixie’ star struck the perfect balance of punk, the event’s theme, and sexy.

To evoke the classic punk ‘do of messy-hair-covering-eyes, Jamie flawlessly executed a less messy iteration with a deep side part and straight strands.

The actress topped her style with a spikey gold crown, dramatic diamond dagger earrings, and simple makeup with a strong brow.

All in all, it was everything punk and more.

Minka Kelly hit the red carpet at this evening’s Met Gala in New York City with a vampy take on the fundraiser’s ‘PUNK: Chaos to Couture’ theme.

The actress stunned in a Carolina Herrera Fall 2013 design with a high-neck, long-sleeved gown cinched at the waist with a geometric belt.

The mix of delicate lace and tough-girl beaded texture at the neckline perfectly complimented the dark purple hue of the dress.

Minka finished off her punked look with a dark lip colour, winged eyeliner, and a braided updo topped with hair jewels.

Olivia Munn took to the red carpet at Sunday’s 2013 Oscars at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

Olivia looked regal in a gown from Marchesa Fall 2013.

The actress joined Salma Hayek in trying out the baroque trend for fall with a ruby-hued gown with intricate gold embroidery on the bodice of the sweetheart silhouette. I loved the delicately folded layers of red satin that so elegantly flowed into a glamorous train.

Olivia paired her dress with a beautifully simple updo in a deep side part with ruby lips.

Salma Hayek wowed on the red carpet at Sunday’s 2013 Oscars at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

Normally one to choose a low-cut dress, Salma went the opposite direction in a high-neck cut from Alexander McQueen.

In a baroque design, the actress stunned in a gold-embellished neckline that blended into a sweetheart cut of midnight blue velvet. The curve-hugging dress showed off her hourglass figure, making the petite actress actually look quite statuesque.

Salma styled her ornate gown with a gold box clutch and tiara, also from Alexander McQueen. To top it all off, she chose a high and voluminous bun, smokey eye, and nude lip.

Cindy Chao jewels completed her look.

ReneeZellwegerCarolinaHerrera

Renée Zellweger, who presented at the award ceremony, brought a gleaming gold look to the 2013 Oscars in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Clad in her go-to designer, Carolina Herrera, Renée looked very statuesque in a curve-hugging sequined gown. Renée’s gown offered an element of surprise from the back with a small train and keyhole cutouts with red velvet bow details.

The actress styled her gown with ruby and diamond bangles from Van Cleef & Arpels and a gilded box clutch.

While Renée’s dress was beautiful, her hair and makeup style was underdone for the occasion, as it looked like she pulled her hair back at the last minute.

What do you think of Renée’s beauty and gown choices?

Nicole Kidman walked the red carpet in a gilded look at the 2013 Oscars, hosted at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

A presenter for the evening, Nicole sparkled in a black and gold stunner by L’Wren Scott.

The formfitting silhouette showed off her curves in a way she doesn’t normally do on the red carpet…and it paid off. The square-cut neckline of the dress drew attention to the ornate Fred Leighton gold drop earrings, while an equally ornate design at the bottom of the mermaid cut dress mesmerized me when watching the red carpet.

Nicole completed her Oscars look with a few face-framing waves and an updo.
