Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore and Alicia Keys share the cover of Glamour US October 2011 which was shot by Alexei Hay.

The stars opened up about the crucial women’s health crusade that brought them together – they directed a series of short films for Lifetime entitled ‘Five’, about women and breast cancer that show how breast cancer affects women’s lives, families and friendships – the 3 beautiful stars also dish about husbands, boyfriends, and babies.

Glamour’s October issue is available on the iPad today, and on newsstands nationwide September 6.

Here are some extracts from Jennifer, Demi and Alicia.

Jennifer on wanting to bring the Five project to life: “We were intrigued by the challenge of creating short stories that would defy audiences’ expectation of the subject. We wanted to balance the drama with humor and irreverence because that’s what’s helped our friends who’ve faced this get through their treatment. We wanted stories that were informative without being heavy-handed. Oh, and they needed to be brilliantly written. Other than that, our goals were small. [Laughs.]”

Jennifer on putting her feet and handprints on the Hollywood Walk of Fame: “It was a milestone in my career, which was surreal because I still think I’m at the beginning of it. I remember when they told me about the honor, I thought, Really? I’ve never lost that feeling of ‘oh God, I hope I get this job!’ I don’t want to get too used to any of this because then entitlement sets in, and that’s the kiss of death.” Read more…

The 2011 BET Awards was held at The Shrine Auditorium in LA yesterday.

Kerry Washington: The actress wore an acid green Michael Kors column gown. I love the colour which is perfect for this red carpet on a sunny day. With that in mind I have to ask, “why black pumps?” Gold strappy sandals would’ve worked so much better to complement her Kotur clutch, belt, gold Lana jewelry and the halter ring detail. I will never understand her decision to opt for black pumps on this occasion.

Keri Hilson: Whilst Kerry opted for a summery look, Keri’s had a Fall feel to it. The singer wore a bicolour Tibi purple and black strapless jumpsuit with black open-toe sandals. She accessorized with gold sculptural Ann Taylor cuffs, a Judith Leiber ‘Ridged Rectangle’ leopard printed haircalf minaudière, a Carla Amorim ring and a gold necklace with a green pendant.

Alicia Keys: The singer opted for zebra print Christian Louboutin Daffodil pumps to match her monochromatic Dolce & Gabbana look. Wilfredo Rosado fine jewelry and a fishtail plait completed her look.

Keke Palmer: I’m not quite sure how Mandalay continues to get away with ripping off other designers. Keke’s silver paneled dress is a total rip off from a Balmain Fall 2009 dress.

Kelly Rowland: The UK X Factor judge opted for a Notte by Marchesa fuchsia dress with a cascading ruffle detail which we’ve seen a few times on the red carpet. Her beautiful dress was paired with nude Jimmy Choo ‘Bisson’ heels.

Nicki Minaj: Of all looks at this event, Nicki was the one that made me itch the most. The singer wore a Mark Fast knit dress, with thick tights and black booties in that searing heat?

Alicia Keys attended the 2011 Keep A Child Alive Black Ball in London last night. The event raises money to provide treatment and support to families with HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.

The singer wore a custom Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci custom-made long bustier black gown.

The gown was embroidered with black ostrich feathers on the skirt and accented with a gold metal articulated belt.

She added Givenchy accessories including suede leather sandals and black satin clutch, plus Chaumet jewels to her look.

Her dramatic dress is perfect for this ball, but I find the nude back panel and the cascading ruffle detail distracting.

Alicia also performed at this event with Tinie Tempah wearing another Givenchy look.

Her short zipped black lace and silk dress was worn with black bondage leather sandals and Chaumet jewels.

Here is the final round up from the 2011 Met Gala.

Salma Hayek wore a costume Alexander McQueen peach organza rose dress. We have all questioned her McQueen choices in the past, but this type of gown is perfect for her. She accessorized with a McQueen clutch and Gucci jewels.

Margherita Missoni is her own best brand ambassador. She was glowing wearing an ombre Missoni Fall 2011 knit dress with a feathered skirt.

Sofia Vergara wore a Carolina Herrera strapless blossom print faille gown. Like Renee she’s found the perfect designer for her. So refreshing not to see her twins spilling out.

Anna Dello Russo chose a masculine military Alexander McQueen look which included a black duchesse satin tailcoat, white shirt and gold fern embroidered pants.

I love the look, she’s been doing the masculine thing a lot lately, but that Egg on her head is bordering on GaGa terrority. Ridiculous.

Alicia Keys shows off her post baby figure for the first time on the red carpet this week when she attended the Biutiful New York Premiere.

The new mum sported the same faux-hawk hairstyle we saw her rockin’ during her Vogue Italia shoot.

Her LBD was from Victoria Beckham’s Fall 2010 collection, but it hard to tell by the way Alicia destroys this dress.

Firstly did she even run an iron over this dress before she decided to wear it?

Secondly the dress needed the grosgrain waistband because the dress loses about 80% of its charm without it.

This would’ve also helped the fold detail on the front of her dress stay in place.

In short this is a total mess head-to-toe.

Alicia only had her baby 6 weeks ago, so I’m sure she has other priorities on her mind.
