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.
