Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Amy Poehler isn’t one I usually look out for on the red carpet, but she did look good at the 2012 Emmy Awards on Sunday evening.

The actress wore a slate-grey Stella McCartney crystal beaded halter gown with a plunging neckline.

Penny Preville statement earrings, a large cocktail ring and Sergio Rossi heels accessorized her look.

Wavy blonde locks, pretty pink lips and a pop of colour via her red nail polish provided the finishing touches.

Stars of the small screen hit the red carpet for the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ performers peer group cocktail reception held at the Sheraton Hotel on Monday in Universal City, California.

The event was more like an LBD convention, with most of the leading ladies sticking to dark tones and few managing to stand out on this red carpet.

Sofia Vergara: The ‘Modern Family’ actress displayed her curves in a figure-hugging black-lace For Love & Lemon ‘Scarlet’ dress. The long-sleeve mini dress was styled with tights and black pumps. I couldn’t be more depressed viewing this look.

Julie Bowen: Sofia’s co-star also opted for a sombre look. Her black Christophe Josse Spring 2012 organza, tulle and lace ruffled frock was styled with black peep-toes.

Zooey Deschanel: Even though the ‘New Girl’ star also opted for black, her Dolce & Gabbana polka-dot dress with light ruffles had a playful vibe. Shimmering nude tights and black pumps completed the look.

Amy Poehler was one of many stars to wear blue on the red carpet at the 2011 Emmy Awards tonight.

The actress wore a Peter Som Fall 2011 dress.

Her shimmering dress was the perfect red carpet look for her.

Normally I’m not wowed by her choices, but this one strikes the balance between being stylish and comfortable.

Most Summery Award
I’m a sucker for a summery yellow dress, worn during the appropriate months so I was drawn to Amy Poehler at the 2011 VH1 Do Something Awards which was held in LA yesterday.

The actress was glowing wearing a yellow MaxMara chiffon cocktail dress.

She wore the dress with the now Hollywood standard nude pumps courtesy of Stuart Weitzman and Kara Ackerman bangle.

Her easy, breezy summery look was complete with wavy blonde locks and a deep pink lip-shade.

Regular readers will know that I’m all about the drama.

The more dramatic the dress, the more I fall in love which is why I’m salivating over Rihanna’s Stéphane Rolland Spring 2009 Couture gown.

I expected Rihanna to walk red carpet wearing a Balmain Spring 2010 dress with cut-out details in the hips, so this was a very pleasant surprise.

The white Stéphane Rolland mermaid shaped gown had a pleated detail on the front which swirled around the bodice, before exploding all over the skirt.

This will be a love it or hate it dress. What say you?

Before I fell for Cate Blanchett, it was all about Catherine Zeta Jones. She was my first girl crush.

I had such admiration for her as she held her own on the red carpet amongst the Hollywood major players.

We haven’t seen much of her lately, but walking the red carpet at this event last night she proved that she hasn’t lost any of her sparkle.

CJZ looked outstanding wearing a navy blue Gustavo Cadile’s Resort 2010 lurex gown.

I loved cut, it flatters her so well. I also love how the gown shimmers.

Welcome back Mrs Jones-Douglas, we missed you.

From one ageless beauty to another.

Iman – as usual – looked OUT-Friggin-Standing.

It’s not easy to follow the gorgeous Karlie Kloss because she totally owns everything she wears on the runway.

But when you’re Iman, that doesn’t matter.

The uber model walked the red carpet wearing a pink Jason Wu Spring 2010 feathered confection that is totally delightful.

I love the neon green waistband and her matchy matchy runway platform heels.

She totally stands out as one of the best on this red carpet.

Never take a day of Iman….I BEG you.

Some of you have expressed your confusion as to why Kerry Washington receives so much praise for her red carpet choices.

Come on guys, looks at how amazing she looks wearing this Fendi Spring 2010 blush pink lace floor-length dress.

She looks simply elegant, the colour complements her skin-tone, she accessorized well with silver stunning jewels and a Christian Louboutin snake skin print clutch.

Her look is totally effortless.

What’s not to love?

The Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection still proves to be the most worn collection by celebrities this year.

Liya Kebede, joins Stella McCartney and Jessica Simpson who have both worn this coat/dress.

It’s not just celebrities who have fallen for Stella’s Resort collection.

Glamour magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive walked the red carpet with SVP & Publishing Director Bill Wackermann wearing the same Resort 2010 dress we’ve seen on Frieda Pinto.

It was no surprise that Stella McCartney was honoured at this event.

The designer was of course wearing self designed pieces which all worked well together.

Stella tends to wear a lot of black, so this pop of colour is really refreshing.

Serena Williams is getting the hand of this red carpet thing as she is radiant at this event wearing a red asymmetrical Pamella Roland gown.

I think she has looked her best yet after her stunning Gucci look a few weeks ago.

Yes she looks muscular, but there’s nothing she can do about that.

I would love to say I have finally embraced Katharine McPhee’s platinum blonde ‘do, but I continue to struggle with it.

Hair aside, I totally in love with her BODYAMR peacock blue jersey gown.

The gown shows off her figure, whilst the black patent leather trim and open back shows off Katharine’s sexy side.

The singer/actress accessorized with a black leather Perrin Paris 1893 Riva Pochette oversize clutch.

Maria Shriver looked fab wearing a black lace strapless Monique Lhuillier gown.

Despite it being 100 degrees last night many actresses opted for black gowns.

Alyson Hannigan opted for a stunning black tiered Vera Wang gown with Chopard and a silver clutch.

Tina Fey wore a Gucci black gown with a train. The back of the gown featured green and crystal jeweled brooch.

Chandra Wilson looked beautiful in Pamella Roland black silk faille gown with white crystal floral beading.

Glenn Close glided down the red carpet wearing a black off-the-shoulder gown with sunglasses.

Jenna Fisher dazzled on the red carpet wearing a silk Reem Acra Resort 2010 mermaid gown with an embroidered detail on the bodice.

Amy Poehler looked fabulous also wearing a black strapless Reem Acra mermaid gown, but hers was from the Fall 2009 collection and embroidered with crystal leaf accents.
