Red Carpet Fashion Awards

“Rachel Getting Married” Premiere

With her incredibly fierce heels, Anne Hathaway showed off her long legs to perfection wearing a vintage Jean Louis Scherrer tulle ballerina dress, with white and silver rosettes.

The actress looked glamorous, chic and extremely feminine in her playful dress. She complete with a sweet silver clutch.

“The Duchess” Premiere

After Keira’s stunning Alexis Mabille Couture dress last week, this grey shapeless bandeau dress, falls a lot flat for me.

Love the hair though.

“Blindness” Premiere

Julianne Moore wore a bold cobalt blue floor-length YSL gown with gold accents. The red haired actress carried the most exquisite gold clutch I have ever seen.

Sandra Oh loves to make bold choices on the red carpet, and does not disappoint here wearing a taupe long sleeved Fendi Feather swing dress dress with a feathered hem.

Evangeline Lilly is picture perfect in her strapless black and white strapless dress.

Burn After Reading Premiere

From couture she wore the the Venice Film Festival Tilda Swinton decided for a milder look to the Toronto Film Festival wearing a oversized white shirt and a long black skirt.

She adds multiple necklaces for added flair.

“The Secret Life Of Bees” Premiere

Alicia Keys wears a stunning pair of Jimmy Choo snake patchwork sandals, that have touches of purple, which perfectly compliment her spectacular purple strapless charmeuse dress by Nicole Miller.

As always Dakota Fanning is cute and age appropriate in her black full-skirted Zac Posen Zibeline Poof Mini Dress dress.

Jennifer Hudson wow the crowds in her olive green Lanvin Pre-Fall 2008 gown with a black bow.

She also wowed the crowds, when a big gush of wind blew up open her dress to reveal her black spanx under her dress.

Poor thing. How very embarrassing.

Queen Latifah asymmetric dress, matched her asymmetric hairstyle.

Sophie Okonedo’s blue ruched strapless dress, showed off her sexy silhouette.

“Middle of Nowhere” Premiere

No wonder we have not seen Sophia Bush at Fashion Week.

The One Tree Hill star kept it simple in a strapless LBD.

Willa Holland also opted for a strapless LBD, but her was layered with chiffon and had a cut bow on the bust line.

The actress wore her dress with a pair of eggplant Christian Louboutin Orniron Ankle Boots

Sir Richard Branson Unite Party

Kate Hudson was the guest of honour at Sir Richard Branson’s party.

The actress with her trademark wild hair wore a strapless red knotted dress with gold heels.

After looking at these pictures last night, I had one disturbing thought. I miss Beyonce Knowles.

Even with her over the top sequins, and her mother’s vomit inducing designs, at least there was a talking point.

Not many attempted to steal her crown.

Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
The only shining light was Rihanna, and she was was literally a shining light in this neon-yellow Giambattista Valli Spring 2008 multi-tiered gown.

The only downside for me was the lip colour as it for me is too harsh for this dress.

Best Embellishments Award
Ashanti looked just OK in this jeweled embellished Marchesa Fall 2007 gown. Not to over the top and in your face.

Best Veteran Award
Nia Long has been attending these events for as long as I can remember, and she ALWAYS looks great. I love her this grape draped mini dress.

Best Booties Award
Despite not being able to crack a smile, Lauren London looks cute in her French Connection wizard cotton mini strapless grey dress, which she wears with the ever popular Givenchy Shoes Strappy Open Toe Ankle Booties.

Best Shoes Award
I was not crazy about Alicia Keys fuchsia strapless David Meister dress, nor her choice of jewelry, but I do love her patent paint drip Sergio Rossi heels.

Best White Award
Gabrielle Union is an absolute vision in this white draped Celine gown with a metal halter and her mega-watt smile.

Best Clutch/Lady In Red Award
Jordin Sparks of course wore red, to match those red streaks in her hair, which she has been sporting for a while.

Although the dress looks like it needs to be pulled down, I do love the colour and fold details on the front.

Her multi-coloured shimmering snake-skin clutch is to die for.

Just OK Award
After spending all that time in the presence of Patricia Field whilst working on Sex And The City movie, Jennifer Hudson really did not pick up many tips. She is still opting for the same brown/bronze colour she always seems to wear on the big occasions.

Her dress is again by Peter Soronen and her shoes are Miu Miu.

Most Improved Award
Tocarra Jones is usually falling out of her dress, so she wins many points for keeping her puppies under control and under her dress.

Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
If you need to ask why, you need to go to your local opticians immediately.

Keyshia Cole is squinting, such is the brightness of her hideous bubble dress.

As Gizmo from the Gremlins would say “Bright light. Bright light”.

Worst Red Award
Lil Mama for a time sported Chanel and Betsey Johnson, so I thought she was on her way to change direction like Rihanna. Then this a complete 180.

That poor kid much be so embarrassed.

Worst Hair Award
Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, it’s 2008, when are you going to change that hairstyle?

It was cool when it was original back in 1994, but now it is just plain tired.

T Boz arrived with her home girl Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, who’s ensemble was just as hideous as her band mate.

Worst Veteran Award

Cindy Herron is still the prettiest member of En Vogue, and was by far the best dressed in this line-up. The rest look like the are going to a S&M convention.

Did You Not Learn From Your Sister’s Mistakes? Award
Big sister Beyonce passed the baton onto Solange Knowles, but she fumbled, dropped the baton and left the house looking like this.

The dress has Tina Knowles stench all over it, and her hair looks like the comb-over that men who are balding adopt, to cover a shiny thinning spot and when, OH when, is she going to lose the two tone nail varnish?

The only saving grace are her cut-out wedged sandals.

Worst Creases Award
As small as this dress is, it would have taken Cassie no more than 2 minutes to iron it.

Worst Make-Up Award
Either someone punched Lil Kim in the face, or that big purple thing on the side of her face is make-up.

Her hideous lace wig looks like it came from the same shop as Tyra Banks.

Worst Embellishments Award
What are those embellishments on Alicia Keys’ Pollini Fall 2008 dress, fans or hair colour swatches?

Other than that, this would have been a stunning dress, as I adore the colour on her.

Music Junkie has all the coverage from the BET Awards including winners and performances.

Ad Between Posts

Worst Statement Dress Award
I know Kelis is promoting her husband’s album, but I do not approve of using this word for self promotion or use of this word in any context.

So trashy.

Worst Hair Award
Alicia Keys was not the worst dressed, in fact I loved the colour on her amazing custom-made Giorgio Armani Privé halter-neck gown.

What I did not like was the hair. She just ruined everything with the hair. Why a mohawk for such a pretty dress?

Worst Dressed Award
No I am not a Beyonce hater. This dress just did not work for me at all and I love Elie Saab.

The asymmetrical bodice and the dripping metallic detail was over-kill, without that this dress may have worked.

I am surprised that from all the dresses in Elie Saab Spring 2008 Couture collection that she choose this one.

I also did not like the hair. I know she was channeling Tina Turner, but I hated it.

Worst Black Award
Aren’t trains supposed to be on the back of dresses?

Fantasia dress was just too much for her. She tried to go Hollywood glam, when she should have stuck to her edgy roots and opted for something a little more funkier.

Worst Floral Award
Lil Mama should have saved her Chanel dress for this occasion.

Least Flattering Award
Unfortunately for Nelly Furtaro this cerulean strapless Arthur Mendonca gown made her look very wide at the hips.

Worst Pageant Fancy Dress/Bridesmaid Award
Urgh…just hideous. This dress that Taylor Swift wore was just to sickly sweet for me and the leaf-embellished skirt was too much.

Worst On Stage Outfit
Good girl gone bad for Rihanna in this Zac Posen Spring 2008 dress. She looks like the straw-man from the Wizard of Oz.

oOpS Award
Debbie Matenopolous announced to the world that the designer of Carrie Underwood’s dress was Badgley Mischka, which was incorrect. To make matters worst she then went onto say that she had seen the floral dress at their recent Fall 2008 New York Fashion Week show.

The fact of the matter was that the dress Carrie was wearing, was by the same designer – Zuhair Murad – that she was wearing. Once informed she desperately tried to make a retracting but the damage was already done. Zuhair Murad has dressed Debbie for other occasions, but I guess this will be her last.
