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.

See what I did there?

“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.
