Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Best Dressed Award
Taylor Swift looked so graceful on the red carpet wearing a Kaufman Franco Resort 2009 one shoulder draped nude silver sequin gown.

I know many of you are rolling your eyes and saying “Not another embellished red carpet dress”, but you can’t deny who stunning she was on the red carpet.

Red Carpet Rebel Award
Leighton Meester doesn’t know what ‘play it safe’ means, and I love her for constantly keeping things interesting.

The red carpet rebel wore an interesting white and grey sequin Christian Cota Fall 2009 dress with petal sleeves.

Crazy studded Giuseppe Zanotti fan cut-out boots, a Bottega Veneta clutch, and Cathy Waterman jewelry completed the look along with smoky eyes and a single bangle.

Most Improved Award
Maybe it’s because she stopped trying so hard, or maybe it’s because her sister looked so bad but I liked what Solange was wearing for a change.

Her Armand Basi One LBD with a interesting folded details doesn’t scream “attention” for once.

De Ju Vu Award
Katy Perry does look amazing wearing this Blonds Spring 2009 strapless spikey dress which has been modified from the runway, but I’ve seen so many variations of this corset on Rihanna, Britney and Fergie that I’m starting to get a bit bored of this look.

As if her dress didn’t sparkle enough she added JudeFrances jewelery to her look.

It’s A Bit Formal, But I Love It Award
Nelly Furtardo’s Elie Saab Fall 2009 sheath dress with an embellished neckline may seem to formal for the VMAs, but I absolutely love this dress.

It reminds me of the dress Kelly Osbourne wore to the GQ Awards last week.

Best Mini Dress Award
Rose Byrne was the biggest surprised on this red carpet, but she got into the spirit of the event by wearing a cute Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 black mini dress with a purple floral print.

Best Balmain Award
Shakira’s sexy look was more fitting to this Balmain Fall 2009 dress than Pink, even though most of us are not fans of the thigh-high boots trend.

Best LBD Award
Alicia Keys who I would’ve expected to wear something more colourful, opted for a black sequin Dolce & Gabbana dress with silver circle details.

A sliver clutch and multi-coloured heels complete the look.

Best Jumpsuit Award
After Amber Rose’s hideous jumpsuit Keri Hilson couldn’t do any worse.

She looked stunning wearing a sexy – yet not trashy -black plunging Charlotte Ronson Fall 2009 jumpsuit with embellished wide shoulders.

Davidelfin showed for the first time in Bryant Park this week. Amerie attended the show and obviously became a instant fan of the collection.

Best Use Of Colour Award
Whilst a lot of stars opted for black Amerie brought a burst of colour to the red carpet, wearing an aqua Davidelfin Spring 2010 mini dress which was just off the runway.

She paired her caped dress with black pigalles and an ankle accessory.

Most Predictable Award
I knew Alexa Chung was going to walk this red carpet wearing a cute dress with ankle boots. She didn’t let me down.

I hate the boots, but I can’t deny how cute her Luella Fall 2007 dress is.

Best High-Street Award
Lauren Bosworth’s may have only spent $268 on her black and white embroidered French Connection Damask dress but it was one of the best on this red carpet.

Neither Hate It, Nor Love It Award
I’m not a fan of Lady GaGa’s style by many means, but this was one of her finer moments.  Mostly because she was not exposing her derrière.

Her look was very theatrical with her gold Phantom of the Opera mask, tilted hat and feathered neck brace.

Under all that was a Jean Paul Gaultier black gown.

2009 BET Awards

Most Predictable Award
Their would’ve been no prizes for guessing that Beyonce Knowles would have worn Balmain to this event, as she’s worn so many Balmain pieces both on and off the red carpet.

She did pick a very colourful interesting piece with a swirling sequin pattern and a jagged hem.

I love the dress and the playful hoop earrings, but the hair I’m not fond of.

Worst Re-Run Award
Letoya Luckett wore a lace, crystal embellished, zipper dress from the Balmain Fall 2008 dress which we’ve already seen on the red carpet.

She looks good in the dress, but those clunky gold Alejandro Ingelmo clown heels just ruin the look.

Sticky But Sweet Award
Leather on a hot sunny day?

I’m getting hot just looking at Ciara, but her ruched maroon leather Cynthia Steffe Fall 2009 dress does look amazing on her, plus I love the ruffled detail.

The singer kept both her accessories and make-up light and neutral.

Best Dressed Award
Alicia Keys really stood out in her Moroccan inspired embellished mini Jenny Packham dress, and her larger-than-life curly ‘do.

The singer completed her look with Christian Louboutin Spartenvol Strass 100 sandals and a matching nude clutch.

Best Minimalist Award
Whilst everyone seemed to be opting for lavish embellished pieces, Zoe Saldana looked stunning wearing a white one-sleeved Calvin Klein dress with a cut-out detail on the hip and a daring slash to the thigh.

Brian Atwood heels completed the look.

Most Ridiculous Award
In the attempt to grab headlines Melody Thornton comes of looking ridiculous in her Alexander McQueen dress.

This ombre fringed dress with a nude body-stocking would be great as a stage costume, but on the red carpet it just doesn’t work.

The asymmetrical fringed details don’t cover enough of the body-stocking leaving her exposed.

She really didn’t think her look through.

Most Safe Award
I’m really not liking Taraji P. Henson mullet, but I do love the elegant black Kaufman Franco one-sleeved gown with leather strapped detail on the back.

The unfortunately thing here is that the backless nature of the gown reveals her lower back tattoo.

I would’ve preferred her to wear something funkier for this occasion.

Trying WAY Too Hard Award
Cassie used to be so sweet, so this harder image to rival Rihanna just doesn’t work for me.

It’s so false from the hair cut to the peek-a-boo Mark Fast knit dress to the Giuseppe Zanotti fold-over booties

Screams wannabee.

Best Super Hero Award
Singer Keri Hilson channels her inner Wonder Woman wearing a black bustier dress adorned with multi-coloured stars and other interesting shapes.

Her look was a little more risky than the others which made her stand out.

She could have easily over done her look with lots of bling, but she knows her statement dress should do all the talking.

Casadei black satin pumps completes this look.

Best Heels Award
Amerie opted for a LWD with Alexander McQueen peep-toe booties.

Best Homage Award
Estelle paid homage to the late Michael Jackson by wearing a single white glove with her denim tiered Acne baroque peplum dress.

I love the cute nature of this dress with the contrasting silver spiked earrings.

Just OK Award
Actress Keke Palmer wore an embellished dress with sparkled in the LA sunshine.

Most Original Award
Tyra Banks could have been predictable and worn  Balmain or slinky dress instead she tired something new wearing a menswear-inspired satin ensemble.

I wouldn’t have thought Tyra could pull off an androgynous look but she totally works it.

Her look includes midnight blue satin skinny pants, a dove grey vest and satin pussy bow blouse, with suede Trib Two pumps.

Neutral make up and simply styled hair make this look work.
