Red Carpet Fashion Awards

The celebration for our Oceans to benefit the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Ocean Initiative was sponsored by Chanel in Malibu, LA last night.

Kate Hudson: The mother-to-be arrived wearing a black Chanel draped asymmetrical dress with Brian Atwood ‘Debra Due’ peep-toes and a snake-skin clutch. As always she was glowing and continues outdo many other mothers-to-be on the red carpet.

Courtney Cox: I’m very surprised that Courtney didn’t wear black. The actress wore a navy and beige tweed Chanel Spring 2011 dress with black t-bar heels. Her dress is very similar to a dress Naomi Watts wore earlier this year.

Camila Alves: The TV host also opted for black shoes with her white Chanel mini dress. The dress was paired with a Chanel cropped jacket from the Resort 2011 collection.

Amber Valletta: The model would’ve been one of my favourites at this event had she opted for heels which were more complementary to her pink and navy tweed Chanel Spring 2011 dress. A black clutch completed her look.

Ali Larter: I’m guessing the actress got lost on her way to Malibu beach.  A cover up to a Chanel benefit?  REALLY?

Bryce Dallas Howard: The actress needs help. Her style choices since we discovered she was pregnant have been less than flattering. Rachel Zoe, Victoria Beckham, Selma Blair, Jessica Alba and Kate Hudson above have all managed to work sophisticated maternity styles, so why is Bryce struggling so badly?

For a Chanel event I find myself being incredibly disappointed by all excluding Kate Hudson.

Here are the rest of the looks from Good Housekeeping’s Shine On Event.

Christy Turlington: The model still looks like she did 20 years ago. She doesn’t appear to be aging. It must be the supermodel gene. Christy attended this event wearing a Louis Vuitton teal blue dress with a black boucle cropped jacket. Her chic look was teamed with black accessories.

Heather Graham: The blonde actress is a huge fan of L’Wren Scott, and who can blame her when it gives her a body like woah. The peach figure-hugging L’Wren Scott wool-blend dress was paired with matchy peachy pumps, fuchsia pink lips and a gold VBH clutch. BDOTW?

Eve: The singer wore a Jean Claude Jitrois white leather dress which she over accessorized with too much jewelery.

Ali Larter walked the red carpet at the “Acura ZDX Redefines Next Event” in LA this weekend.

The actress doesn’t take many risks on the red carpet, which is why I was shocked to see her wearing such a stand out piece.

She wore a Brian Reyes digital print strapless dress from the designers Spring 2010 collection.

I love how the fitted dress explodes with colour, and how it’s so far away from Ali’s comfort zone.

I would’ve loved to have seen her pull her hair back tightly to add some fierceness to her look.

Her futuristic digital print dress – with a print more vivid than the runway – was thankfully paired with silver ankle strap heels and not black pumps.

This was one of my favourite looks from Ali Larter last year.

The “Heroes” actress attended the 2009 Whitney Contemporaries Art Party And Auction in New York last year wearing this bone print Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2009 dress.

She added a stunning Erickson Beamon necklace with a large orange pendant to her plunging dress with padded shoulders.

Although I loved the dress, I hated the clunky heels.

Jennifer Lopez wore this same dress after she performed at LIV Nightclub in Miami.

She paired her dress with jewel encrusted Jimmy Choo “Quinze” sandals and a white clutch.

Both look amazing in this dress, but Jennifer’s Choo’s win this for me.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Anne Heche arrived a Letterman wearing a Catherine Malandrino LBD with ruffled shoulders decorated with an antique gunmetal trim.

Anne teamed her look with Valentino patent peep toe shoes and Martin Katz jewelry.

Kenneth Cole Awearness & Feed Projects Celebrate The Feed Health Backpack, LA

Ali Larter looks outstandingly beautiful wearing a mint green Balenciaga Resort 2009 dress, with gold heels.

The look only needed a touch of pink gloss and a clutch to complete this elegant look.

“Sorority Row” Photocall, London

I’m loving Rumer Willis’ chic coral satin Zac Posen dress, but the heavy black Fendi shoes don’t work for me.

And how many times to I have to tell Rumer? You’re hair is so much better short and black.

Briana Evigan for me looked better than Rumer wearing her BCBG Max Azria colour block dress.

I just love the loud vibrant colours, which she paired down with grey heels.

Diesel Only The Brave, New York

Without commenting on the ‘Palmero’ hair style, I love and I dislike Olivia Palermo’s look in equal measures.

You can tell a lot of time and thought went into it as she paired her red and white stripy Diesel dress, with a white shirt accented with a navy bow and a necklace. She didn’t really need the necklace.

The look is completed with the dreaded ankle boot and a cute quilted Chanel purse.

Michelle Trachtenberg’s wore in white Alice + Olivia tank top with an interesting detailed neckline paired with skinny black jeans and two-tone Giuseppe Zanotti Ver blush patent sandal.

Ali Larter looks very sexy in her white printed Herve Leger Fall 2009 mini dress with a plunging neckline and padded shoulders.

Ali tried to diffuse the uber sexiness of this dress by adding a stunning statement necklace by Erickson Beamon with a large orange pendent.

Love the dress, hate the heels.

They’re so clunky for this dress, plus I would have preferred a taupe strappy sandal.

A Nancy Gonzalez gold clutch completed her look.

Alexis Bledel also wore a plunging neckline Herve Leger Fall 2009 bandage dress. Hers was in chocolate brown with shimmering gold panels.

Alexis always seems quite shy so I’m really shocked that she’s wearing such a sexy piece and without the runway blazer.

She completed her look with a sparkling Judith Leiber clutch and pewter Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

Lake Bell opted for a futuristic look wearing a red BCBG Max Azria Resort 2010 dress with grey embroidered details which is a cross between Star Trek and Spidergirl.

She wore her dress with silver sandals and a lemon Herve Leger Spring 2009 clutch.

The dress will grow on me, but the shoes and the clutch. No.

I really wish Maggie Grace hadn’t held her clutch so close to her skirt because I love the tulip shape on the skirt of this teal blue Christian Siriano Fall 2009 asymmetrical dress.

I’m glad Maggie opted for something we haven’t seen from Christian Siriano, as I’m so tired of seeing the same dresses in various colours.

Maggie is looking fantastic lately which makes me ask the question. Does she have a new stylist?

Her look was complete with Christian Louboutin Carnaval heels with a leafy embellishment at the rear.

Hilary Rhoda looked sexy but sweet wearing a pale blue Max Azria Spring 2009 plunging draped toga dress.

Silver sandals were the perfect complement.

The red carpet always lights up when Camilla Belle graces it with her presence.

Wearing a green one-shouldered Max Azria Resort 2010 dress with ruffles cascading from the shoulder the actress looked simply gorgeous with seemingly not much effort.

Amber Tamblyn wore a black and white Alice + Olivia fan dress, which I blogged about recently, saying it looked very much like the Gianfranco Ferré dress Anne Hathaway wore to the Critics Choice Awards.

I would have really liked this look if it wasn’t for the tights.

Yes I know I go on about disliking tights so much, but it’s a real bug-bear of mine. You all must have something that you really dislike too.

Max Azria’s BFF Melissa George was of course at this MaxAriza event.

The actress wore a white haltered Herve Leger Resort 2010 bandage dress with matching heels, a gold clutch and a gold stack of Samantha Wills bangles.

As much as I want to say I don’t like it, Melissa really makes it work surprisingly.

Selita Ebanks is such a pretty woman so I’m dumbfounded as to why she opted for so much make-up.

It really takes so much away from her natural beauty.
