2009 MTV Movie Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
This is the impact I wanted Cameron Diaz to make, but instead that honour goes to Sienna Miller.

I love the sea green colour of her Swarovski-encrusted Twenty8Twelve Fall 2009 dress.

The length is perfect to show off her pins, and the shoulder pads are subtle enough not to draw any Balmain comparisons.

The Brit actress carried a silvery Chanel clutch, and wore pair gorgeous Nicholas Kirkwood gold heels, to complete this stunning look.

I Don’t Follow Red Carpet Rules Award
If we expected Kristen Stewart to wear a cute pink mini dress, with silver strappy sandals, we were wrong.

She hit the red carpet wearing a Yigal Azrouël Fall 2009 red and black dress, with a cross cross detail on the sheer yoke, and a wide black belt.

I can imagine her being wrestled into this dress, and her stylist compromising on the Converse sneakers, but she totally rocks this look.

Best Black Award
Leighton Meester took a risk at the Costume Institute Gala, which didn’t pay off for me, but this edgy cut-out Emilio De La Morena Spring 2009 dress totally works.

This interesting dress has peek-a-boo parts, sheer panels, folds, and cut-outs, which Blair Waldorf wouldn’t approve of, but totally love.

She completes her look with Brian Atwood Brie purple suede ankle boots.

Risk That Paid Off Award
Taraji P. Henson certain got into the spirit of this fun awards ceremony, wearing a black and white strapless printed Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 bustier dress.

The part French maid, part Chinese porcelain inspired look is definitely daring, and with her fun-loving personality she totally pulls it off.

I love how she plays up the ruffled detail on the back of her skirt, and her punky spiky new ‘do.

Moving Out Of Her Comfort Zone Award
This Moschino Fall 2009 red and navy floral print sleeveless dress with a ruffled hem, seems a little out of Lauren Conrad’s comfort-zone, which I really appreciate.

It feels a bit dark and mysterious, which is complemented with dark red lips, and black strappy booties.

I only wish she had pulled her hair back, to show off the floral shoulder detail.

Best Use Of Colour Award
I love to see bold bright colours on the red carpet, which is why I love Vanessa Hudgens peach satin Max Azria dress.

The dress is very grown up, but she injects her youthful glow and enthusiasm, to make this a perfect red carpet look, which she pairs with Jimmy Choo shoes, and a Nancy Gonzalez bronze clutch.

I really glad she didn’t go full on boho, with a printed maxi dress, which we’ve seen many times from her.

Hate The Hair, Love The Dress Award
I love Megan Fox’s black and gold Dolce & Gabbana strapless brocade cocktail dress, which she had shorten. It really suits her dark, mysterious persona, plus it shows off her toned figure.

She wisely kept accessories to a minimum, and added a bit of spice via her Christian Louboutin Differa sandals.

The biggest downsides are her hair, overly orange glow.

Best Theme Award
At first I hated Ashley Greene’s hair, but then I realised how much it worked with what appears to be a 40s housewife theme.

The hair works with her alluringly form-fitting Dolce & Gabbana floral print dress, with a beautiful, yet subtle voluminous skirt.

A neon yellow clutch, and bold red lips, add a touch of bright colour.

The Kate Beckinsale “This Is Not The Oscars” Award
I was really surprised to see LeAnn Rimes wearing such a formal gown by J.Mendel to the MTV Movie Awards.

She looks beautiful, she really does, but she’s a little overdressed.

Most Vanilla Award
Miley Cyrus opted for a very soft look for this event. I would’ve expected something with a lot more attitude, but she looks lovely in her pale pink cowl neck Moschino Cheap & Chic dress, which had a ruffled detail, going down her back.

The only hint of the wild rock wannabee Miley, was via her rings and bracelets.

Best Re-Run Award
I love Ashley Tisdale’s purple leather Elise Øverland dress, and the accessories she picked really punch up the look, especially those lust worthy Paul & Joe Sister heels.

We’ve seen this look before on the red carpet, but as Ashley wears it so well, that all is forgiven.

Surprisingly Not Predictable Award
I would have expected 3 things from Audrina Patridge.

1. Something low cut
2. Her black Alexander McQueen Bow Clutch
3. Her Balmain studded heels.

She blows that out of the water wearing a loose fitting paillette covered Joey Tierny Couture dress, with a dove grey Alexander McQueen clutch, and cream Louboutin heels.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Shoes Award
Keke Palmer’s look was almost perfect. I really loved her coral embellished Elise Øverland dress. It’s young, it’s fun, it sparkles, and it summery, but those grey booties lose her many points.

Stand Out Award
Malin Akerman stood out the most, because she is the only one who opted for pants, wearing a crisp, white Dolce & Gabbana suit, with a pale blue corset.

Her hair was sleeked back to complete this sophisticated look, which she didn’t over accessorize.

Most Summery Award
Yes Paris Hilton needs a new clutch and shoe combo, but there’s no denying her vibrant vest for spring and summery colours.

I love her cute coral Jenny Packham Spring 2009 strapless mini, with its ruffled skirt, and gold embroidered bodice.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun/Au Natural Award
Monique Coleman must have sensed when she looked in the mirror, that she would get ridiculed for her hair.  I admire her for ditching the extensions, and going au natural. I can’t see many others sporting this look.

Her Christian Louboutin Spartenvol Strass sandals complemented her silver and black spacey mini tutu dress, which you may all hate, but I will take this over a mini dress with tights any day.

She wanted to have fun at this event, and it shows.

Maxim’s 10th Annual Hot 100 Celebration

Let’s see how many Trib Two’s, and Herve Leger dresses we can count at this event.

Heidi Montag, or should I say Heidi Pratt, wore platinum strappy heels, and a matching Nancy Gonzalez clutch, with her predictable Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2009 bandage dress.

I’m not particularly crazy about this look, and her necklace is so unnecessary. She should have saved it for a better outfit.

Herve Leger Count: 1
Trib Two Count: 0

Kim Kardashian opted for a very tight white H&M dress, from the Divided Exclusive Summer 2009 Collection, with 80s inspired shoulder pads.

This look is too severe for my liking, as she has one of those council estate face-lifts, were her hair is pulled back so tight her face looks stretched.

Jil Sander black pumps, and a Christian Louboutin clutch complete the look.

I’m really not liking Audrina Patridge’s lighter hair. She was so much prettier when her hair was darker.

She wore a navy mini dress under a black Kris Van Assche tuxedo jacket, whilst wearing her very favourite Balmain Crystal embellished studded sandals, and carrying her favourite Alexander McQueen bow clutch.

The only surprise with Amanda Bynes’ look, is that she’s not wearing a Herve Leger dress, but I guess when you know Heidi Montage has been invited, a Herve Leger dress is automatically off the table, as Heidi will definitely wear one.

Everything is standard Bynes’. Shoes, hair, vacant expression.

Herve Leger Count: 1
Trib Two Count: 1

Arielle Kebbel is wearing black peep-toes with her cute strapless BCBG Max Azria Spring 2009 dress *shudders*

God those heels are killing me, such a bad choice.

She should have considered the split in her dress, before striking that pose.

Ciara sure knows how to rock cornrows. The dress is event appropriate, but I would have expected her to go more high fashion, and stand out from this crowd considering her many good choices lately.

Herve Leger Count: 1
Trib Two Count: 2

Dania Ramirez channeled her inner Carrie Bradshaw wearing a pair of Manolo Blahnik Something blue satin pumps, with her marble print strapless Farah Angsana dress.

Gabrielle Union & Jamie Gunns arrived wearing the same Herve Leger dress.

That’s gotta be embarrassing, but that will teach them both to be so unimaginative.

Herve Leger Count: 3
Trib Two Count: 2

Vanessa Minnillo quietly walked the red carpet with Nick Lachey, wearing a Laila Azhar pleated strapless dress, with lust worthy Fendi Boudoir sandals.

Whenever I see Taryn Manning, I always think this is one of the lost Lohan sisters.

This platinum dress is so ill-fitting on her.

NYLON Magazine’s Young Hollywood Issue Party

I’m wondering if Rumer Willis has a new stylist, because she seems to have changed her style direction, plus she is wearing British designers lately.

She has worn a few pieced from Todd Lynn, and on this occasion she’s wore a black jagged edge Nathan Jenden Sandra strapless dress, with black Christian Louboutin Paquita gladiators.

I love that she’s trying out new designers, and not following what the rest of young Hollywood is wearing, but she needs to figure out what hairstyle works best for her, because this wavy style is really messy, and spoils her overall look, which is a huge shame.

Sophia Bush keeps it casual in a simple tank, jeans, trib two’s and black jeans. She makes her look interesting with a strappy belt.

I love how she is growing out her hair.

With gorgeous nude lips, and black strappy sandals, Amber Stevens wore a bandeau dress, with stripes and roses from Topshop.

Such a cute look.

Audrina Patridge wears a very sheer Kain Label crop top, with a yellow 3.1 Phillip Lim skirt, we’ve seen her wear before, her favourite Alexander McQueen bow clutch, and Balmain Crystal embellished studded sandals.

I’m seeing a lot of those cropped tops in stores at the moment.

I love Kat Dennings, I think she’s an awesome actress, but I can’t get over her make-up here.

I love this vibrant green colour of Kristin Cavallari strapless dress, the draping is also impressive, but those shoes……

Stephanie Pratt is definitely ready for summer in her white and aqua Bebe tiered ruffle dip dye dress, which she wears with white peep-toe Louboutin’s.

Lo Bosworth’s look is all black with tan accessories to warm up her look.

PaleyFest09 Presentation Of "The Hills"

I must say I’m starting to really dig Lauren Conrad’s style. Her red carpet looks have never blown me away, but this citronella 3.1 Phillip Lim tiered ruffle tank dress, is gorgeous.

Her tan accessories really perfect this look, and her lighter hair and nude tinted lips gives her a subtle glow.

After her grossly over prices collection has been put on hold, Lauren Conrad is now producing a range for discount department store Kohl’s. Some people are just born lucky.

Audrina Patridge wears a wide waist belt to nip in the waist of her Stella McCartney blue/grey one-shoulder dress, which she wears with her favourite Alexander McQueen bow clutch.

She gets plus points for everything apart from the hair. I love her as a brunette, and I’m just not in love with those highlights.

Whitney Port wore a typical Whitney-style boho inspired maxi.

I love the draped bodice and her honey-coloured hair.

Lo Bosworth would have got the thumbs up for this look, had it not been for the clutch.

Her jewel tone sapphire blue skirt, and turquoise top are a perfect combination, but that cyan coloured clutch clashes with the rest of the look.

2009 MTV Australia Awards

I will guess some of you won’t like that Lara Bingle wore a head-to-necklace-to-clutch-to-toe Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 look.

I agree she could have broken it up a little, but I do love this purple and orange striped sweater with gold mini-skirt, and Spicy heels look. She really stood out at this event.

She was so chic, and perfectly co-ordinated.

I love Dannii Minogue’s warrior princess look, with the silver embellished fingerless PVC gloves.

I would have preferred a pair of really fierce gladiators, or edgy Nicholas Kirkwood-type heels with her silver J’Aton Couture dress.

The black peep-toes Louboutin’s are such a safe choice, for such an edgy futuristic couture dress.

Red carpet host Audrina Patridge, arrived wearing a black strapless Valentino Red dress, with Balmain Crystal embellished studded sandals.

She later changed before entering the press room. On this occasion she sparkled in a gold paillette covered Alberto Makali dress.

MTV presenter Ruby Rose, rolled out the carpet from the back of her dress to kick start this event.

Her actual dress was a gold mini dress, as seen above with Audrina.

Ruby’s hair is identical to the look Rihanna sported to the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards.

I was worried Australian designer Collette Dinnigan wasn’t going to be represented on the red carpet, until I saw Jessica Mauboy arrive wearing a Fall 2009 sheer mini dress, with embroidered lace details, and an embellished skirt.

The singers look was complete with YSL trib two’s, and a silver Prada paillette clutch.

I’m really not fond of Delta Goodrem’s hair extensions, because they’re too obvious. A layered look would have graduated her hair to be less conspicuous.

Any way onto the dress. Delta wore a forest green and brown maxi by Australian designer Alex Perry. The maxi looks very elegant on her tall and slender frame.

Duffy really should have saved this look for an art gallery opening or something equally less rock n’ roll.

What happen to her?

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz wear matching black looks.

"I Love You, Man" LA Premiere

There seems to be a lot of re-runs on the red carpet lately.

Elizabeth Banks is wearing the same Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 embroidered dress, we saw on Milla Jovovich recently.

I am usually a fan of Elizabeth’s choices, but this dress doesn’t work for her at all. Maybe it’s her hairstyle that is going against the dress, but this look gets a thumbs down.

Rashida Jones would have had to wear Bridget Jones style pants with her black Azzedine Alaia dress.

The lace inserts all over her dress, were enough to show Rashida that a v-string just wouldn’t have been a good idea.

Her look is complete with Manolo Blahnik Pepe sandals.

Jaime Pressly is smokin’ hot. She loves to mix up her look a lot. Sometimes it’s jeans and a blouse, other times it’s the ladies who lunch look, but on this occasion – hot temptress.

Her legs are elongated wearing a black mini Badgley Mischka sparkling dress, which she wears with Jimmy Choo Private strappy sandals.

Audrina Patridge loves strapless dresses, so this navy Whitley Kros dress is not a surprisingly look for her.

She wore her dress with embellished Giuseppe Zanotti booties, and a black patent Alexander McQueen bow-shaped clutch.

I’m really loving the chestnut brown hair colour. It makes her face softer.

I am not loving Rachel Taylor’s choice of shoes, nor her overall look.

Her LBD is worn with a 3.1 Phillip Lim Resort 2009 blazer.

2009 Grammy Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
Pretty pink strapless gowns seem to be the order of the day. First worn by Freida Pinto at the BAFTAs, now this gorgeous pink Basil Soda gown has been worn by Katy Perry.

The structure of the gown is exquisite, as I have come to appreciate from Lebanese designers.

The satin ruffle piece on the front of the gown doesn’t bother me, the retro hair fits the look, the pink lips are simply divine, and the subtle Jacob & Co jewels don’t over cook this look.

Most Unexpected Award
When I saw Jennifer Hudson arrive on the red carpet wearing a colour-block RM by Roland Mouret Trenet high neck dress I must admit I was very shocked.

If there was a line of 100 dresses, I would have picked this last for her, but she more than does it justice – and this is not any kind of sympathy vote.

This really is a statement dress, with 3 tones including a white high neck bodice, a grey contrast pleated peplum around the waist, and a dark navy pencil skirt.

Thankfully the hair is pulled back to show off the dress, and her blue suede shoes are Christian Louboutin Declic Suede Pumps. I personally would have preferred a strappy sandal.

Best One-Shouldered Dress Award
Zooey Deschanel stepped out of the box, and tried something new with this cute lilac Luella Spring 2009 dress.

There is much going on with the chiffon layer, the floral appliqué on the shoulder, and the skirt with the draped detail, but this does not overwhelm Zooey.

She wears this dress very confidently, and it suits her kooky style.

The lilac tights I like, the black peep-toes I don’t like.

Best Strapless & Ruffles Award
Sara Bareilles also wore a pink strapless dress from the Luisa Beccaria Spring 2009 collection. It’s so angelic, and I love the red accents.

She completes her look with a Daniel Swarovski silver clutch.

Most Improved Award
After her Cavalli dress at the Pre-Grammy party, Miley Cyrus couldn’t get any worst.

I was pleasantly surprised in her choice of this charming Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2008 asymmetrical gown, and I loved her hairstyle too.

Miley seemed very calm on the red carpet. No over-the-top poses, no obnoxious comments. I was very impressed by her maturity.

What No Bling? Award
Miley’s new BFF Taylor Swift, love for embellished dress was replaced by this Kaufman Franco black jersey gown, with wrap around patent leather strapping.

Continues To Be One To Watch Award
Kim Kardashian’s white/silver Toni Maticevski Spring 2009 dress was very cute, sassy and not at all trashy choice.

I love the organza detailing, which gives the dress a lot of shape and definition.

She worked her look with a pair of silver Christian Louboutin Fortuna slingbacks.

Best Use of Colour Award
I love a burst of colour on the red carpet, and Letoya Luckett certain provide it, with her fuchsia pink mini dress, multi-coloured snake-skin clutch and baby blue pumps.

Best Asymmetrical Gown Award
Looking a lot less bronze than she did the day before, Sheryl Crow looked amazing wearing a water-mix blue Toni Maticevski gown.

I love the slightly ruched bodice.

Golden Girl Award
Carrie Underwood glowed on the red carpet in a gold beaded tulle slip gown from the Zuhair Murad Resort 2009 collection, which she wore with a matching golden Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

I knew she could not stay away from this type of look for long.

It Should Not Have Worked, But It Did Award
Janelle Monae’s equestrian themed look was very charming.

I especially loved the white high collared pleated blouse.

Better With The Coat On Award
Anna Wintour was styling Adele for this event, so there were high hopes.

The Barbara Tfank LBD was nice enough, but I loved the look with the green coat.

Best Colour Block Award
LeAnn Rimes’ Philosophy Spring 2009 dress is so cute, I have to own it.

I love the cerulean blue top half, the heavily embellished waist, and the chiffon khaki skirt. Such a young and fresh look for the singer.

Best Re-Run Award
Iman has already worn this Rachel Roy Spring 2009 strapless dress, which had a embellished bodice and a tulip skirt. Jennifer Nettles wears it equally well.

Just OK Award
Apart from the Princess Leia hair style Audrina Patridge looks nice enough wearing a teal Tadashi strapless column gown with pleated bodice.

The Hills star walked the carpet Hans Solo.

“The Hills” Season 4 Finale


Does anyone know what Whitney Port’s official job title is at Diane von Furstenberg? Because I am starting to believe that she is there to show off Diane’s stunning designs on the red carpet. I want that job please.

The Hills/The City star wore a gorgeous eggplant maxi dress from Diane von Furstenberg’s Spring 2009 collection, which had pleats and a layered skirt


Whitney’s flower child look was complete with a cute hair accessory of silk flowers and feathers, as many of the models wore in Diane’s Spring 2009 show.

Best look of the night, so therefore Best Dressed Of The Week.


Just when I thought I was going to end the year with a compliment for Lauren Conrad, she gets it nearly right. This 3.1 Phillip Lim multicolored sequin dress needs a belt, the runway version proves that.

I will give her some credit for her hairstyle, as it’s different for a nice change.

She completes her look with gold heels.


Audrina Patridge is wearing a gorgeous wine coloured strapless Alexander McQueen Fall 2007 gown, which has been worn by Jessica Alba and Mary J Blige in green.

The colour is absolutely divine on her. Whitney just pipped her to the post for best look of the night.


Holly Montag has a lot to learn. The anchorwoman hair has got to go.

The Gucci Spring 2004 dress, itself is OK until you get to the sleeves, which I question why they are even there, because they ruin this dress on her, yet it works on the runway.

Nice ruby shoes though.


Do not adjust your screens, surprisingly this is the same dress.

I despise this woman, so I am glad I don’t have to say anything nice about her looking hideous in this Alexander Wang Resort 2009 dress.

Stephanie Pratt in an attempt to out do the others, tried too hard and is the worst out of the bunch.

The colour is so wrong for her, the hemline is all kinds of confusing and keyhole detail makes this dress look even more tacky.

If I was Mr Wang, I would be pi**ed.


Here is the worst of the rest.

It looks like Heidi Montag got an early Christmas present. Her boobs have definitely gone up another cup size or 3.

Heidi walked the carpet with her now husband, wearing a black shimmering fringed dress.


Lauren Bosworth wrapped up warm against the cold weather, but did briefly reveal her ensemble of a sparkly top and satin yellow high-waisted skirt from Forever 21 would you believe.

MTV Movie Awards – Best Dressed



Best Dressed Award

Charlize Theron wore this silver metallic Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2008 bustier with black super skinny pants.

The actress wore a sexy pair of Roger Vivier heels.

Best Boots Award
Sarah Jessica Parker looked amazing again last night, wearing a chocolate shimmering L’Wren Scott Fall 2008 turtleneck dress. Only SJP can get away with wearing a dress this tight.

Check out the white lace up Louboutin boots. Of course they are not out yet. A Fall preview perhaps?

Best Couple Award
Zanessa aka Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron did not walk the yellow carpet, but they were snapped together.

Vanessa wore a summery plunging neckline sea shell-patterned Diane von Furstenberg dress, and her beau, Zac wore a navy blue sheen suit and white shirt by Moschino Uomo.

Best Style Transformation Award
Who would have thought lil’ Miss Anne Hathaway could pull off such an edgy look?

From the neck down she is almost unrecognisable in her edgy one-shouldered Sophia Kokosalaki black dress.

Best Hair Transformation Award
Audrina Patridge was determined to make an impact on the red carpet following her fall out with Lauren Conrad, and she successfully accomplished that with her new bangs.

I like her new ‘do, as her head does not appear to be as long and round.

Her navy satin dress is by Lloyd Klein.

Pretty In Pink Award
Liv Tyler wore a cute bubblegum pink Lanvin strapless toga dress with a gathered hem.

She carried a pink clutch, and wore a animal print pair of Louboutin heels.

Best Ruffles Award
Rocker Lucy Walsh just about pulls off this Christian Siriano Fall 2008 halter-neck purple ruffled dress without looking too much like an ostrich.

Best Couple Coordination Award
Paris Hilton and Benji Madden were perfectly coordinated in their black and white ensembles.

Paris wore a strapless Betsey Johnson lace embellished dress, which has a fitted bodice and a bubbled hem.

Keeping It Real Award
Well what did you expect Ellen Page to wear? Boob tube and mini skirt?

Last night she wore a black Suh-tahn leather jacket, black skinny pants and a white Suh-tahn t-shirt.

Best Herve Leger Award
OK, she looks like a blow up doll, but out of all the Herve Leger dresses that were worn last night, I loved the colour of this Adelisa strapless dress.

Best Use Of Colour Award
I love the multi-colours of Emma Stone strapless Blumarine dress. Her navy heels and orange clutch perfectly compliment her dress.

Best Silhouette Award
I love how this cobalt blue asymmetric dress from her own Lauren Conrad Collection, gives Lauren Conrad such a sexy silhouette. I did not know she had this body, as she always wears such loose fitting clothes.

Best Frenemy Award
Stephannie Pratt looks cute in this purple leopard print spaghetti strapped dress, but I am not sure about her sidewalk clutch.

Stephanie is obviously enjoying the benefits of being Lauren’s friend.

Best Bubble Hem Award
There were a lot of bubble hemmed dresses last night. But the uniquely quirky Whitney Port’s red brocade Nicole Miller dress, was by far the most interesting.

I love the contrasting chunky heels, which were interlaced with blue and yellow ribbon.
