Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Naomie Harris was unveiled as a Bond girl for the ‘Skyfall’ movie way back in May, wearing a beautiful blue lace dress with matching shoes in Istanbul, where most of the movie was shot.

It wasn’t until October that the promo tour kicked off, with the British actress wearing her first of three Marios Schwab dresses at a photocall in New York.

Back in London she donned Chanel for a photocall, then for the royal premiere she shone in a Marios Schwab gown followed by a cocktail dress by the same designer for the after-party.

In Rome it was a double dose of Dolce before she headed to Madrid, where she donned two Lanvin dresses.

Naomie returned to Istanbul, where her penultimate look was custom made by Nicholas Oakwell, before she concluded her tour wearing a Maison Martin Margiela gown.

While the actress seemed to favour Marios Schwab during this tour, my favourite look was her Nicholas Oakwell look, followed by the Margiela and Chanel looks.

Having covered the main female stars from ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’ promo tour, we couldn’t leave out the leading man.

Robert Pattinson, known for his love of Gucci suits, mixed things up on this occasion, opting for a different designer for every event.

His promo tour started in Sydney, where he attended a fan event wearing a smart Kenzo suit with a quirky printed shirt.

The English actor didn’t wear a black suit throughout this tour, opting for green Gucci, maroon Burberry, tartan McQ Alexander McQueen, dark-grey Dolce and light-grey Burberry once again.

Had Rob opted for a lighter shirt in London, this would’ve been my favourite look.

My favourite overall look was Rob in Burberry at the Berlin premiere.

I loved the slightly looser fit, the combination of black and grey and of course how devilishly handsome he looked.

Unlike her co-stars, Ashley Greene and Nikki Reed, Kristen Stewart had a much longer run promoting the last movie of the Twilight series, ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’.

Not only was it longer, but it was also more controversial, with disapproval of either the sheerness of her look, the length of her dress, her hair, her posture and some even questioned her cleanliness. Basically she couldn’t win, but it made for an interesting discussion.

The tour started in Tokyo, where she wore a Louis Vuitton Spring 2013 romper with Brian Atwood heels.

We then went on to see a variety of looks ranging in style and colour, but the two things which kept reoccurring were her Cartier ‘Juste un Clou’ bracelet and her Christian Louboutin ‘Décolleté’ pumps.

The looks which really got you tapping on your keypads were the two Zuhair Murad looks, because of how revealing they were, and the Elie Saab gown, which would’ve been the highlight of the tour had she opted for better footwear and that darn belt.

My favourite looks from the tour were: the Louis Vuitton romper for its edginess and footwear choice; the Peter Pilotto, mostly for the colours; and the Zuhair Murad jumpsuit as I think she looks most comfortable in pants.

The most surprising thing about this tour was the lack of Balenciaga looks.

Nikki Reed’s promo tour for the final ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’ movie started off slowly, wearing Dolce & Gabbana and Skaist-Taylor in Europe.

Before I considered writing her off, she wowed on the red carpet wearing a Versace strapless gown at the LA premiere.

In Oslo, she wore a stunning Naeem Khan gown, even though I wasn’t crazy about her clutch.

Her short-but-sweet run came to an end in Copenhagen, where she dazzled in a sequined Oscar de la Renta dress.

Naeem Khan wins for me as it didn’t feel so one-dimensional like the other looks.

The promo tour for ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2′ movie may have been short and sweet, but we did get some major looks from the main stars.

Ashley Greene started her promo tour in South Africa, where she wowed in a Zuhair Murad Fall 2012 strapless, ombre fuchsia silk dress before moving on to a more conservative Erdem frock for a photocall.

Back in the US, she wore a breathtaking Donna Karan Atelier gown for the LA premiere. For the ‘Anderson Live’ show, she opted for a colour block Narciso Rodriguez simple dress.

On the Today Show she blossomed in a fruity raspberry Carolina Herrera dress, before ending her tour in New York, smouldering on the red carpet in my favourite Donna Karan Atelier look she has ever worn.
