Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Best Couple/Best Dressed Female Award
I love Victoria Beckham, you know I do, but for her to walk the red carpet with sunglasses on, (one of my red carpet NO NO’s) is beyond pretentious, although I do appreciate that she is channeling Audrey Hepburn here.

Luckily for her she has that hot arm candy in her husband David Beckham, and she wore a stunning primrose yellow RM for Roland Mouret Pre-Fall 2008 ‘Kleber’ cocktail dress, with an origami-pleated neckline, and full-length zip at the back, which makes me forgive, but not forget.

What I also admire is her restraint to not have worn shoes to match her dress.

Best Dressed Male Award
Hotness.

In some pictures it looked like David Beckham had tucked his tie into his shirt, but the soccer stud was actually wearing a white waistcoat. Such a smooth look for the handsome Becks wearing a Spencer Hart suit and Tom Ford shoes

David won Best MLS Player on the night, a feat that was not very difficult.

Best White Award
For such a hot sunny day TV personality Terri Seymour chose right with this white Azzedine Alaia mini dress, which she matched with gold YSL tribute pumps.

Best Sparkle Awards
I love Venus Williams – who looks a lot like Serena here – in this black and silver sequined plunge-neck Diane von Furstenberg dress with Giuseppe Zanotti strappy heels.

The more championships she wins, the better her style becomes.

Best Female Over 6ft Award
It is not easy being tall, muscular and dressing elegantly, but WNBA player Candace Parker pulls it off, looking very glamourous in her champagne gown.

The star won Best Female Athlete on the night.

Best Accessories Award
I would never have thought to match yellow with grey, but IRL driver Danica Patrick, makes it work with her Nanette Lepore Spring 2008 strapless mini dress.

Not crazy about her hair though.

Simple, But Elegant Award
Sophia Bush’s dark olive one-shouldered Fendi Fall 2008 gown, is a huge departure from her normal style of thigh high dresses.

I adore her earrings.

Best Mini Award
Kristen Bell kept is short and very sweet in this strapless purple Jil Stuart Resort 2009 bustier dress, which she accessorized with a long necklace with a huge pendent.

Best At Sticking To What Works Best Award
Model Adriana Lima wore this Alessandro Dell’Acqua dress, which you would very much expect her to wear as it’s cute and short.

Best At Not Playing It Safe/Best Legs Award
Kate Walsh could have worn a dress like Sophia Bush and played it safe, but the actress wanted to have fun last night, and it showed.

The Private Practice star wore a short purple and silver sequined Jenny Packham cocktail dress, which showed off her sexy legs.

She completed her look with strappy Calvin Klein heels.

Just Not Sure Award
I am not sure if I like this printed maxi dress on Ashanti or I hate it, so I am staying on the fence.

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.
