Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Worst Dressed Award
I would really like to know what was going on in America Ferrera’s mind when she picked this Vera Wang gown.

The colour surprisingly washed her out, the draping on the hips is extremely unflattering, and the black tulle pieces that criss-crosses across her bodice was just annoying and only added to the overall disappointment of this gown.

Deja Vu Award
Penelope Cruz fails again with the same hairstyle as the Golden Globe Awards, and another dress that fails to wow me despite being by Azzedine Alaia.

Most Underwhelming Award
Angelina Jolie, we get it. We get that fact that you would look great in a potato sack. We also get the fact that you don’t care about how you look on the red carpet, and that you no longer try.

But you could have nipped in this Max Azria Spring 2009 gown just a tad to give it some shape.

Oh and sweetie, you have the dress on back to front. It was presented as a plunge-neck dress.

Non Supporting Actress Award
Emily Blunt’s Pamella Roland Spring 2009 silver dress sparkled. It was gorgeous.

But the top half just was very uncomfortable to look at. I know it would have been impossible to wear a bra with dress, but the twins lacked support.

Most Disappointing Award
Kyra Sedgwick always looks spectacular every red carpet season. This season, I have not been swept off my feet by her.

This vintage Chanel dress was very ill fitting around the bust for me. Hopefully she will wow me at the Oscars.

I Should Be Thankful It’s Not Black But…Award
But Rosario Dawson doesn’t wear this pewter Dolce & Gabbana mermaid gown well, which is surprising for someone with her curves.

The dress is very fussy around the bust area, and has also been worn by another celebrity much better.

Worst White Award
There was a lot of white on the red carpet last night, but Olivia Wilde’s was the least flattering. Surprisingly it was a Ralph Lauren Spring 2009 gown.

Too Dark Award
I love the dramatic nature of this Carolina Herrera strapless gown that Marcia Cross is wearing. But I just think it was way too dark for her.

This would suit someone like Dita von Teese, who can wear dark Gothic type gowns with her pale skin.

Worst Desperate Housewives Star Award
Nicolette Sheridan wore a sea blue asymmetric Roberto Cavalli Resort 2009 dress. I like the dress, but there is something about Nicolette that cheapens the whole look for me.

Too Casual Award
Tina Fey wore a black strapless Brian Reyes dress, which is cute, but it would have been even cuter on Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens or someone else around that age group.

Every morning when I am looking at the pictures of events from the previous night, I am always looking to say wow. I had two moment like that today, and the first was Nicole Kidman.

I am not sure you will all love the ice queen in her stunning spaghetti strapped L’Wren Scott Spring 2009 ice white gown, with jeweled detail on the empire-waist, but I absolutely adore her here.

She is so statuesque, regal even. I came imagine jaws were dropping all night.

Along with Ali Larter, Nicole is up for Best Dressed this week.

And if you think the front is amazing, look at the detail on the back.

Kate Bosworth did not opt for a stunning gown, but the affects are just the same.

Her black tuxedo-style Chanel dress with a white bib, was amazing and sophisticated enough for her stand on the same red carpet as Nicole Kidman.

I do not think there has ever been a time when I was not impressed with Natalie Portman.

She appears to be a quiet shy retiring type, but girlfriend knows how to master the red carpet, and she did so again, wearing a black Jolibe Fall 2008 dress with a sequined panel going down the front, and folds on the skirt.

She completed her look with a pair of pom pom shoes, which she also owns in purple.

There was a time when America Ferrera would wear nothing but black. Thank god those days appear to be over as the Ugly Betty actress took to the red carpet last night wearing a multi-coloured sleeved Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2008 embroidered dress.

Love the dress, not so crazy about the Amy Wino hair ‘do, which she has sported before.

Sarah Michelle Gellar opted against her bangs, which she sported last week in favour of a messy up ‘do.

Like many women at this event she opted for a white dress. This dress was by Vicente Villarin Spring 2009

The beaded detail on Selita Ebanks’ dress is the most interesting detail on her grey gown with a black overlay.

I love the way she constantly adapts her crop. I wish I had the guts to go for the chop.

What is up with young Hollywood?

Taylor Swift should be trying to give people like Natalie Portman a run for her money, but instead she opts for a long, plain, boring black gown.

Taylor is usually very impressive on the red carpet so I am a touch, sorry very disappointed in this effort.

When she rocks, she rocks, and Fergie rock it last night.

The singer arrived looking sweet and innocent wearing an amazing white Michael Kors gown, with a jeweled bodice. Can’t wait to see this girls wedding gown.

You may have noticed that Fergie has put on a bit of weight. The singer put on 13 pounds to play a character named Saraghina in the upcoming movie musical Nine.

Debra Messing is not often on the red carpet, and she rarely gets it wrong. On this occasion, I think she did, as this Ralph Lauren Fall 2008 dress does anything for her at all.

Despite it being just a black dress by Gucci, I do like it on Tyra Banks as for once she is toned down and not over the top.

This is not my favourite look for Jane Krakowski. I think it is her hair, because her strapless Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti satin bustier dress is a gorgeous berry colour.

Best Californian Girl Award
Cameron Diaz arrived on the orange carpet wearing a white shrug over her strapless Missoni Spring 2008 dress and Christian Louboutin Passmule Patent Sandals in white.

Best Dress/Shoes Combo Award
Even though I am not a fan of grey, I do like Ashlee Simpson’s Alexander McQueen strapless belted dress, mostly because she offset the dull grey with a bright orange pair of Christian Louboutin Passmule Patent Sandals.

I love her Chanel cuff bracelet.

Most Improved Award
From wearing a baby’s outfit with a dummy at the MTV Music Awards, to wearing this embellished Betsey Johnson Spring 2008 strapless hot pink, black trimmed taffeta and tulle dress, Lil Mama has come a long way.

Most Colourful/Best Smile Award
I just love the colourful design on Brenda Song’s dress.

Best Shoes Award
I was just about to put Jordin Sparks in the worst category for those red streaks in her hair when I spotted her Giuseppe Zanotti Architectural Wedge Sandal’s. I have been wanting these sandals forever, but can never find them in my size.

Do I need these sandal’s when I am already 5ft 11ins? No.

Do I still want them? Yes.

Would I be able to walk in them? Probably not.

Jordin is wearing a red strapless dress from Diane von Furstenberg.

Most Improved Posing Award
Miley Cyrus decided against her ‘Playboy bunny’ pouting, which she thought was a good look for the Oscars. She was wrong.

On this occasion she turned down the hooch and looked cute in this black embellished Stella McCartney Rhinestone paillette mini dress. She completed her look with a pair of red satin ABS peep toes.

Golden Girl Award
America Ferrera is glowing in this David Meister gold dress, matched with a gold clutch and gold wedges.

Best Dressed Under 15 Award
No hair extensions, no make-up, no nail varnish, no mini dresses. Abigail Breslin is age appropriate. Something that does not always apply to Miley Cyrus.

Best Pregnant Award
Jessica Alba green shimmering Corey Lynn Calter Spring 2008 gown, is stunning on her. With her pregnancy comes great style.

Best Mother/Son Combo Award
Nia Long always brings her little man to this event, and they always look so cute together.

Nia is wearing an open neck Marc by Marc Jacobs Night Blossom dress with taupe and white Sergi Rossi shoes.

Most Cute Award
Victoria Justice, isn’t she just adorable?

A mini Vanessa Hudgens in the making.

Vanessa Williams looked youthful and radiant in this stunning one-shouldered Zuhair Murad gown.

This Marchesa Spring 2008 dress America Ferrera is wearing makes up for the grey dress she wore to the SAG Awards.

I love the colour on her and the embellished shoulder and bust-line detail.

Kate Walsh is stunning in this midnight blue embellished one-shouldered gown, which gives her a very sexy silhouette.

I love her darker ‘do.

Meagan Good looked to be in the Valentine’s Day spirit as she held a red rose whilst wearing a pink Herve Leger dress.

Jordin Sparks is the epitome of dull in this chocolate strapless gown. I can not believe she won Best Newcomer at this event. It makes me question the validity of these awards.

I am glad that Eva Pigford got rid of the long weave, as this style suits her much better.

I am loving the back of this dress more than the front.

Taraji Henson’s looks to be wearing a fanny pack, but she is actually just showing off her hot pink bag.

Worst Statement Dress Award

OK Angelina Jolie is obviously wearing this vintage Hermes strapless free flowing dress in an attempt to hide her pregnancy. Yawn.



Worst Dressed Award

Tilda Swinton has a very unique androgynous style, but she should have lost the jacket or opted for a cropped version.

Most Disappointing Award

This hurts.

I tried to love it, but I just could not.

Cate Blanchett, my fashion favourite really let me down last night, despite this dress being Balenciaga.

Worst Colour Award

America Ferrera on the red carpet again wearing Monique Lhuillier.

The partnership has worked very well so far, but on this occasion this dress falls flat for me. I really dislike the colour.

I have not seen America on the red carpet since November, and I expected more from her.

Worst Embellishments Award

Jane Krakowski should have worn her hair back, as the embellishments on this Catherine Malandrino Spring 2008 halter gown totally dominate it.

It also looks like she has a bowl of fruit around her neck.

Worst Dress / Shoes Combo Award

I admire the fact that Chandra Wilson wanted to try something different from the standard gown, but this sequined dress did not work for me, neither did the shoes.

Had the dress been in one colour, maybe I would have liked it more.

It’s Not Working Award

Rebecca Romijn can do so much better, this colour on this Roberto Cavalli 2008 Resort dress is too dark and not at all flattering for her.

For me Rebecca is more of a bubble gum pink type of girl.

Worst Hair Award

Kate Hudson is wearing a beautiful strapless Balmain Spring 2008 floral gown with beaded detail, but I am not keen on the dress as an red carpet event dress.

I am also disliking her hair.

Time To Find A New Stylist Award

I am just not sure about this material for Nikki Blonsky. The style is OK, but it may have been better if it was empire waisted.

Back To Black Award

This is a really nice Zac Posen dress, but I am beyond bored of Ellen Page in black, and that is why she is in this category.

Worst D List Award

Lisa Rinna is trying to grab attention in this Jenny Packham Spring 2008 animal print dress, but just comes off desperate.

She has dressed so much better in the past on the red carpet, so this is very disappointing.

Most Boring Award

For a young girl, Andrea Bowen should be experimenting more.

America Georgina Ferrera (born April 18, 1984) is an award winning Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award actress from her role as Betty Suarez on the ABC comedy/drama series Ugly Betty.

In 2006, she landed the lead role in Ugly Betty, an adaptation of the Colombian hit telenovela Betty La Fea, in which she portrays a girl that her peers find extremely unattractive, thus the series title. As Betty Suarez, Ferrera wears fake braces on her teeth, bushy eyebrows and a disheveled wig, and make-up and clothing intended to downplay her own good looks.

In real life America Ferrera is beautiful and stylish. My only comment is that she appears to ALWAYS wears black. In the last 6 months America has worn black to every event excluding The Screen Actors Guild Awards, The Golden Globes and The 24th Annual William S. Paley Television Festival.

America has a few films in the pipeline, so we can get so see more of America Ferrera. (hopefully in an ensemble that is not black).
