Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Blake Lively was seated at the top table next to Anna Wintour at the Christian Dior Fall 2010 presentation yesterday.

The American Vogue June 2010 cover girl looked amazing.

Boobs Legsy covered up for Dior, wearing a gorgeous simple white Dior dress with Christian Louboutin Luly leather sandals.

At first I was like, “what’s with the fascinator?”, but it quickly grew on me very quickly.

The headpiece was a beautiful touch to a surprisingly demure look from Lively.

See, she’s can display one asset at a time.

I’m so envious of her flawless invisible make-up. It’s so refreshing to see a smile instead of a pout in the front row.

What do you think of Blake’s headpiece?

The Christian Dior Fall 2010 Couture presentation was a glorious feast to my eyes.

Every piece was vibrant with colour. Even the black pieces had a pop of colour with the exception of look 24.

John Galliano is a master of his craft. I was in total awe of each piece.

The show recalled the ‘Tulip line’ designed by Christian Dior in 1953.

The floral theme was highlighted by a dramatic backdrop of giant parrot tulips.

It was also highlighted in every piece worn by the models.

They were the stems to the upturned flowers they were wearing.

Everything was so extravagance. From the colour to the swing skirts with cinched waists, to the ballgowns, to the various textures plus layers and layers of detail.

Sheath dresses in mohair and boucle resembled fields of wildflowers in bloom and layered skirts looked like petals.

The gowns were so completely mesmerising. They were big, beautiful and of course resembled petals with ruffles cascading over voluminous skirts.

Eva Green would look amazing wearing that ballgown above. I’m longing for her to return to a more dramatic way of dressing on the red carpet, and this gown has her name on it.

I loved the finishing touches.

Vine-like heels which wrapped around the models feet, and the models heads were wrapped in cellophane of different colours as though they were bouquets of flowers.

Model Natalia Vodianova attended Givency’s cocktail party in honour of singer Ciara wearing a look from Givency’s Spring 2010 collection.

I love this draping on her and the white lace shoulder detail adds such a nice contrast to the grey.

I’m not too massively keen on the black leggings and peep toe shoes but Natalia always has a great way of making any look her own.

To be honest, I’ve never really been a fan of  red lipstick with blue eyeshadow but when it comes to this supermodel, I’m willing to make an exception.

I love Natalia in Riccardo Tisci’s designs and she blew me away last year wearing a Givenchy Fall 2009 suit.

Front row at Givenchy’s Spring 2010 Couture show was singing superstar Ciara.

Ciara was wearing a look from Givenchy’s Spring 2010 collection and the leather skirt part of this ensemble really suits her rock chic vibe.

Because she’s opted for bare legs, I actually really like the heavy wedged boots with the look.

FC and I were kind of surprised to see Ciara doing Couture Week and even more so when we found out that Givenchy had thrown a party in her honour.

At the Givenchy party held in her honour, Ciara wore a look from the Fall 2009 collection.

I LOVE this on her. It’s not something I would expect to see her in and I adore how the velvet jacket nips her in under the bust.

Apart from her choice of black pumps, Ciara has worn this look as shown on the runway.

I’m really pleased she wore it with the neck scarf which is has knotted under her chin in a cute bow.

I’m really loving this Givenchy Spring 2010 Couture offering from Riccardo Tisci.

The twenty two looks were verging on the edgier side of couture, with disco-esque jumpsuits that look liked they just walked off the film set of “Saturday Night Fever”.

Tailoring was also out in full force with stunning black evening jackets with jet black velvet lapels.

I especially loved the white tuxedo jacket from which layers of black and white feathers cascaded.

Evening gowns were intense purples with bubble-like ruched hems and embellished bodices.

I also fell in lust with the black lace pieces, which added a touch of softer androgyny.

This collection undoubtedly brought the fun factor to the runway and I’m hoping to see at least one of these patterned jumpsuits on some of our braver red carpet ladies.

Watch this space.
