Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Many months ago, Marvel told me to keep an eye on Ashley Greene and I’ve been an admirer ever since.

Ashley reminds me at lot of Sophia Bush, who always makes a positive impact on the red carpet.

Her red carpet looks for her new movie “Twilight Saga: New Moon” have been amazing, but her looks for smaller events and TV shows have been just as impressive.

She is making all the right style choices.  Nothing is predictable, too safe, nor boring, nor attention grabbing tacky.

I absolutely adore her teal and black Yigal Azrouël Fall 2009 sleeveless dress, which she wore on Fox’s “Good Day New York” this week.

The pointy sleeves are interesting, the colour is intriguing and the length is perfect. There is nothing I don’t love about this look.

Ashley Greene is the December 2009 cover girl for lads mag Maxim.

She could have done what most Maxim cover girls do and wear a bandage dress, but the stylish actress selected a black ruched Nicole Miller Spring 2010 dress accented with bold print shoulders.

The runway heels and bare legs would have perfected this look for me, but instead Ashley wore tights and carried a lime green satin geometric Bally clutch.

She’s definitely one to continue to watch.

It’s been a busy few days for Rihanna.

We start with her appearance at Best Buy in Union Square, New York where she signed copies of her new album “Rated R” and posed for pictures with fans.

She wore a strapless black jumpsuit featuring a draped detail, but it was the heels I was more interested in.

The singer wore a pair of Diego Dolcini origami satin peep-toe pumps.

The shoes are accented with a large leather origami-style rosette in metallic shades of gold, copper and silver.

It was the perfect accessory to add a bit of pizazz to her black ensemble.

Although I couldn’t find the exact version of Rihanna’s heels Luisa via Roma and farfetch.com both have a similar version.

For Rihanna’s appearance on ABC’s “Good Morning America” she wore less impressive heels, but the focus this time was on her Dean Quinn white blazer accented with bugle beads.

On her recent visit to London Rihanna must checked out a lot of our up-and-coming designers because she recently wore David Koma, now she’s wearing a piece from another Central St Martins graduate Dean Quinn.

This blazer was part of his 2009 graduate show consisting of 6 black and white pieces.

The bugle beads have very much become his signature as they were used on all 6 pieces.

You can check out his collection at Dean Quinn.com.

Rihanna was all smiles when she arrived at the Ed Sullivan Theatre for her appearance on the “Late Show With David Letterman”.

What stood out on this occasion were her Alexander McQueen fold-down boots from the Fall 2009 collection.

These heels are very distinctive by the black and white houndstooth material which was heavily featured in McQueen’s Fall 2009 collection.

The final stop on Rihanna’s promotional tour yesterday was her “Rated R” Album Release Party at Juliet Supperclub.

The singer may have been fatigued after a long day, as she kept her sunglasses on whilst walking the red carpet.

It was that or she was worried she would poke her eye out on her spiked gold mini dress by design duo The Blonds.

This was my least favourite look as there’s too much gold from the hair, to the dress, to the spiked heels.

Rihanna was in London this week to perform at the Brixton o2 Academy.

She took to the stage – much to the delight of her fans – to perform wearing an asymmetrical black bodysuit with embellishments from Manish Arora’s Spring 2010 collection.

It’s was a typically bold stage look for Rihanna, because as we know RiRi doesn’t do safe anymore.

Fishnet tights and ankle boots completed the look.

RiRi’s most interesting look was her Mark Fast Fall 2009 tangerine knit dress, which she wore when she attended the Nokia X6 launch at Mahiki nightclub in Mayfair.

Mark Fast is the knitwear designer of the moment, and his super sexy dresses are sought after by many fashionista’s.

Her look was paired with a Louis Vuitton tasseled bag, grey Christian Louboutin Lynne backless ankle boots and Maria Francesca Pepe chunky chain bracelet.

Prior to her arrival in London Rihanna was pictured outside “Skyrock Radio” in Paris, where she made an appearance to promote her new album, ‘Russian Roulette.’

It was here we got to see her wearing a Rick Owens Fall 2009 dove grey coat, which she wore over her Acne Spring 2010 cropped printed jumpsuit.

En route to her hotel in London Rihanna was spotted wearing another Rick Owens look.

She paired her black leather jacket with a grey IRO fur hat and this time she opted to carry her Louis Vuitton fanny pack.

Shopping on Oxford Street in London, her devotion was clear as she wore yet another Rick Owens jacket.

This dove grey version is my favourite. It looks so snug, soft and luxurious.

Her Rick Owens cropped padded shouldered leather jacket, plus the Rick Owens black leather jacket and my favourite Rick Owens padded vintage tie leather jacket are all available to purchase from Luisa via Roma.

A Rick Owens leather jacket is without doubt the investment piece for your winter wardrobe. Perfect for day or evening.

I want one now.

Speidi aka Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are busily promoting their new book on “How to Be Famous”.

I’ve done my best to ignore them, but they keep popping up everywhere.

Whilst leaving their hotel in New York to enroute to the “Live with Regis and Kelly” studios, something caught my eye – her Miu Miu embellished socks.

These nude ribbed knee-high socks with multicoloured sequin and bead embellishment epitomized the bourgeoisie mood of the runway.

Heidi ruins that mood, by taking the socks to tackyville pairing them with a gold fur coat, a white mini knit dress and Christian Louboutin’s Mamimo pumps.

She has the opposite to the midas touch, everything she touches turns to blah.

These Fall 2009 embellished knee-high socks were on Net-A-Porter, but they have since sold-out.

Katherine Jenkins continues to promote her new album “Believe”.

During her promotion she dazzled in designer dresses, but also made high-street looks we can all afford look amazing.

After she was helicoptered into Swansea, the singer changed out of her Oscar de la Renta dress into a strapless sassy D&G dress to sign her CD for waiting fans.

The floral print dress was less structured on Katherine, as she opted out of the runway belt and paired her dress with tights and Trib Two’s.

The next day she headed to London Westfield shopping centre to greet fans at HMV.

Here she looked beautiful wearing a black Matthew Williamson jewel detailed dress from the Fall 2009 collection without the runway necklace, which I had assumed was part of the dress.

YLS sandals completed the look.

At HMViIn Manchester Katherine opted for a cute strapless black and white printed French Connection Danask sweetheart dress worn with Trib Two’s.

Attending the “Samsung Pink Ribbon Breast Awareness Day” in London, Katherine glowed in a bright pink French Connection Otto frill dress again worn with Trib Two’s.

My favourite looks here are the Matthew Williamson dress, and the pink French Connection dress. Regular readers will guess why.
