Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Here are just a few of the looks from the 2010 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards which was held at Berkeley Square in London last night.

Lily Allen used to be the belle of these balls. Now she just fades into the background.

Her black Chanel Pre-Fall 2010 dress with sheer sleeves is nice, but forgettable.

Amanda Holden looks nice in her white strapless dress, but I really dislike her mis-match accessories.

Naomie Harris looked stunning in her black and gold embellished dress which has an Egyptian feel to it.

I’m not sure what Diana Vickers is wearing, because I can’t get past those god-awful vintage Ossie Clarke shoes.

“Sheer Infusion Newcomer” Alexandra Burke also opted for an ethnic-inspired black and gold look.

Her beaded black velvet cape was perfectly accessorized with gold jewels and a stunning armlet.

New mum Denise van Outen wore a very summery Alexander McQueen dress, which she paired with silver pumps and a black Chanel bag.

“Radio Personality of the Year” Fearne Cotton opted for a bold colour in this tomato red Roland Klein sheer dress with black studded pumps.

“UK TV Actress of the Year” Billie Piper wore a long black lace trimmed dress which she paired with gold accessories and a stunning Lara Bohnic clutch.

Pixie Lott was my least favourite at this event.  Normally she’s more inspiring.

The same goes for Kelly Rowland.  Her Roberto Cavalli LBD and black pumps combo is just tres boring for me.

More exciting looks to follow…

I hope you all had a relaxing Memorial Day weekend and Bank Holiday weekend. If only 3 day weekends were the norm.

Big Brother presenter Davina McCall took a rare night off wearing head-to-toe black when she wore this navy blue Notte by Marchesa gown to the 15th National Television Awards held at the O2 Arena back in January this year.

X Factor winner Alexandra Burke wore a fiery red version of the same strapless bow accented gown to match with her sparkling personality when she attended The Brit Awards 2010 at Earls Court back in February.

Both kept their accessories light, but Alexandra’s gown pops on the red carpet so she wins for me.

The bow accented strapless gown has been recently added to Net-A-Porter US and Net-A-Porter International in black, and Net-A-Porter US and Net-A-Porter International in blue.

Kate Moss was joined by Daisy Lowe, Alexandra Burke and Anna Wintour for the launch party of the new Topshop store in Knightsbridge, London yesterday.

I’m loving Kate’s look, especially her hair which has a lot of body to it for a change.

She’s wearing her own Topshop ultimate silk blazer, which I’m going to purchase the second I finish this post.

Thanks to InStyle_Pat who has informed me that Kate is also wearing her Topshop silk button back playsuit backwards.

First Angelina, then Amanda Seyfried now Kate. Backwards is the new forwards.

Daisy’s Topshop maxi dress is the perfect look for summer.

Alexandra Burke also has me reaching for my credit card to purchase her gorgeous Topshop Lotus bead tiered shift dress.

Whilst Anna is the surprise guest.

I never had her down as a Topshop fan.

Kate Moss’ new summer collection goes on sale today.

You can view the collection on Topshop International and Topshop US.

Some items – especially the maxi’s are already selling out.

Last year’s X Factor winner Alexandra Burke first wore this Lipsy fringe detail dress to “Capital FM’s Jingle Bell Ball” in London on 6th December.

I must say I love her hair. The blunt fringe really suits this look.

And then she ruins it with the ankle boots *sigh*.

This dress gives Alexandra a really nice shape but I wish she’d worn something a bit more festive.

X Factor contender Rachel Adedji then wore this dress last week to “Capital Rocks” in London.

Where to start? Those boots? If you insist on wearing boots on the red carpet at least wear some that fit.

Rachel’s boots are baggy around her legs, which makes this look sloppy and badly put together.

I’m not crazy about the earrings either and in fact think that both girls are lacking some much needed accessories.

Alexandra wins this round for me, although I’m not blown away by either.

This dress is available to buy from ASOS US and ASOS.com

On Saturday night before the X Factor final on ITV, we got see more of Cheryl Cole on her one-off show “Cheryl’s Night In”.

She was still fighting for this love wearing her favourite Alexander Wang boots, she’d worn in her first performance on the X Factor a few weeks ago.

This time she swapped the military outfit for a pink ninja-style look.

My favourite look of the show as when Cheryl perform “3 Words” a duet with Black Eyed Peas rapper Will.I.Am.

She looked stunning wearing a her 3rd look from the Stéphane Rolland Fall 2009 Couture collection this year.

This black gown with a sheer yoke had a dramatic train which Cheryl used to full effect during her performance.

Last season Cheryl wore a pink Krystof Strozyna dress on the X Factor, so it wasn’t a surprise to see her wearing the same designer again.

Whilst Cheryl was being interviewed by Holly Willoughby wearing a teal Temperley London gown, Cheryl glowed in an orange and black Krystof Strozyna Spring 2010 pencil dress.

This digital print dress has geometric fabric panels which I absolutely loved.

Love her or loathe her, she’s given us some interesting fashion choices this year.

Alexandra Burke has worn many Emilio Pucci pieces.

When she performed her hit single “Bad Boys” on “Cheryl’s Night In”, she wore an exclusive ‘one-of-a-kind’ outfit designed by Emilio Pucci’s Creative Director Peter Dundas.

The white two piece was covered in studded eagle motif, which sparkled as she performed her energetic dance routine.

A big wow for Alexandra who after one year in showbiz already has big name designers making looks especially for her.

You can’t walk 5 paces in any women’s clothing store without being dazzled by sequins at the moment.

Nothing works better than Christmas parties and sequin mini dresses.

‘The Hills’ star Stephanie Pratt wore this blue French Connection Spirit Catcher dress recently when she attended the US Weekly Hot Hollywood Party in LA.

She paired her mini sparkler with navy blue heels and a matching clutch.

Last years ‘X Factor’ winner Alexandra Burke wore the same dress with open-toe ankle boots this weekend, when she walked the red carpet at the “Cash Money Records party” held at the Royal Exchange Building in London.

As much as I’ve sworn off ankle boots, I think this dress hangs better on Alexandra, so she wins for me.

You can purchase this dress is 3 different colours from French Connection’s website.

If you’re looking for something more festive, you can buy this dress in red in your local French Connection store.
