Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Beth Ditto performed at the M.A.C. store for Fashion’s Night Out in New York City last night in a brilliant colourful ensemble.

The singer chose a sheer rainbow-hued Christopher Kane Resort 2012 lace dress with black cuffs and a black collar.

Beth complemented the black elements of her dress with her Cleopatra-style jet black hair.

She accessorized with bright blue peep-toe slingback heels and added bold pink lips.

Agyness Deyn seems less annoying lately, mostly because she isn’t shoved in my face 24/7.

The model wore a gunmetal grey Giles Fall 2009 ultra mini dress, on a very mild evening in London, whilst carrying a blue House of Holland bag in the shape of a Monopoly house.

The super, who is only 5ft 8in, looks super-sized wearing a pair of black and white Christian Louboutin Differa sandals.

The berry shade of lippie doesn’t work for me, but was the right choice for her overall look, unlike her bubble gum pink nails.

Christopher Kane’s designs are so unique and so well structured, I’m surprised we don’t see more of his pieces on the red carpet.

Yasmin le Bon wore a nude Christopher Kane high neckline dress from his Spring 2009 collection, which is detailed with horizontal and vertical black leather scallops covering the dress.

The exquisite detail of this show-piece makes a very strong style statement, and I’m glad Yasmin pulls this of so effortlessly.

A fabulous dress, needs fabulous heels, and Yasmin doesn’t disappoint in that department either, wearing a stunning pair of Christian Dior Spring 2009 heels.

I don’t tend to find socialites very interesting, but I love Poppy Delevigne’s Chanel Spring 2009 gown.

She’s totally breath-taking, as she wears the gown which just an elegant grace, that she totally puts the model in the shade.

I much prefer the gown, without the brooch chain detail.

Erin O’Connor was a regal as ever, wearing black Temperley London Fall 2009 gown, with gold embroidered details.  She opted out of wearing the sari, which was presented on the runway.

Stella McCartney is so ahead of the game, I think it’s safe to assume that this glorious floral confection, with bold shoulders, and sculptural hips will be part of her Spring 2010 collection

Her shoes are also pretty spectacular, but they look like they’d pinch after a while.

Regardless, they are on my wish list. I like a good challenge.

I normally love what Beth wears, but this string vest look, I can’t get on board with.

Beth joins a long list of stars who have fallen for the ever so lust worthy Louis Vuitton Spicy heels.

All I can say about Alexa Chung is, I like her pink Chanel bag. The rest is to be expected, especially her two-tone hair.

I wasn’t crazy about Freida Pinto’s Elle Style Awards Chanel dress, but this white Chanel dress I LOVE.

The beauty is in it’s chicness, the bold brooches, and the origami sleeves. Outstanding.

Best Dress Of The Week candidate for sure.

Bond Girl, Olga Kurylenko wore Chanel Spring 2009 ensemble, which included a black bowed detailed sleeveless blush pink blouse.

The look has no wow factor, but that doesn’t stop her from looking absolutely beautiful.

Kate Moss made a rare fashion week front row appearance for Chanel, sitting alongside her boyfriend Jamie Hince, and photographer Mario Testino.

The supermodel kept her look simple wearing a black tuxedo suit, which had a white trim on the pants, with black platform heels.

I have never quite understood how the Chanel-Lily Allen connection came about. On paper, it doesn’t seem like a great fit. But she does pick great pieces, that suit her personality, like this Chanel Resort 2009 pink and navy dress.

Her look is complete with Louboutin’s and white Chanel purse.

Claudia Schiffer look is very Librarian for someone who is wearing head to toe Chanel.

After offending a very small number of in Herve Leger, Beth Ditto opted for a more sombre look when she arrived at the Chanel shoe this afternoon.

Beth Ditto is fearless.

I have long been a supporter of Beth Ditto. She has no desire to be a size 0, she doesn’t hide behind black, plus she’s happy and secure about herself, and her size.

I have a Herve Leger dress, which I have worn once. I was so self conscious about wearing it, I never wore it again, because I felt really naked. So I have NOTHING but respect for Beth when she wore this dress to Stella McCartney’s Fall 2009 presentation this afternoon.

I know a lot of you will disagree with me.

Rock on Beth. Rock on.

Hayden Panettiere unfortunately could bring the LA sunshine to this rain soaked event last night, but she did delight in this red empire-waist Moschino Spring 2008 mini dress, with an exaggerated double tiered flounce hem and cap sleeves.

She completed her look with a pair of bronze Christian Louboutin peep-toes.

The Giles Spring 2008 prom-esqe dress Lily Allen was wearing looks very cute, but is decorated with prints of a bleeding Bambi’s. Not so cute.

What is also not so cute is Lily’s hair. I mean is she for real?

Yes it matches her dress, but just does not work in the grand scheme of things. I preferred her dark roots.

She teamed her dress with a pair of multi-blue Louis Vuitton shoes.

TV presenter Alexa Chung opted for a Luella Spring 2008 peasant-style embroidered strapless minidress, with black booties.

Beth Ditto’s Matthew Williamson Fall 2007 dress could not be any louder, but I continue to applaud her for not taking the safe route.

Her gold gladiator heels are by Alexander McQueen.

Estelle wore a chiffon black LBD from the Kristian Aadnevik Spring 2008 collection, with the bust and waist emphasised with sexy leather details. She teamed the dress with a pair of leather Sergio Rossi black lace sandals.

Emma Bunton will never shake off that “baby” tag, but she is all woman in her black beaded J’Aton Couture gown, which had a plunging neckline and a wide patent belt.

The new mum showed off her new chic bobbed hairstyle.

Dannii Minogue also wore a J’Aton Couture gown. Her stunning white gown was beaded throughout.

Danni is either glowing, or she moisturized very well before leaving for this event.

Geri Halliwell channelled her inner glamour-puss in a blue embroidered wet-look gown, complete with a fur boa.

Not a look I would favour, but Geri makes it work.

Mel B was determined to be the Spice Girl who stood out, and did so in this fuchsia v-front gown by Jenny Packham.

The dress is loud and revealing, but I would not expect anything less from her.

Tamara Mellon of Jimmy Choo won Accessories Designer Of The Year wearing a forest green mini Balmain Spring 2008 dress.

Keeley Hawes who won, UK TV Actress Of The Year, wore one of the most one of the most spectacular dresses of the evening.

Her voluminous, corseted cream gown is just a artistic master piece. She teamed the gown with bronze shoes.

Kate Beckinsale was named Film Actress Of The Year and collected her award wearing a chocolate full-length halter-neck Herve Leroux gown, with her hair loosely tied-up.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the new face for Burberry, looks very elegant in her terracotta gown and fur boa.

Kelly Osbourne opted for a vintage embroidered gown, from her mothers collection.

Joanna Page, winner of Comedy Actress of The Year, wore a cute silk frilly butterfly print Matthew Williamson Spring 2008 dress.

Kimberly Stewart opted for a short purple satin tunic dress with Miu Miu heels.

With her Jimmy Choo Aster snakeskin sandals, Katherine Jenkins wore this Hervé Léger Color block bandage dress.

This is a huge change for Katherine, as we are used to seeing her in structured dresses or cute frilly dresses. I would have preferred if she had opted for a more wild and adventurous hair style to fit the dress.

Model Daisy Lowe wore a strapless squared tulip dress and red shoes, whilst her beau Mark Ronson, opted for a classic velvet tuxedo. They are so hip it hurts.

Ferne Cotton wore a black silk Moschino minidress with Jimmy Choo heels that had a fuschia platform and heel.

Britain’s Next Top Model judge Lisa Snowdon, wore a very interesting tuxedo-style mini dress.

Annie Lennox won the Inspiration Award and was very much the golden girl in her sequined dress.

Kylie Minogue won the International Female Solo Artist Award at tonight’s Brit Awards. I keep forgetting she is Australian, as she has played a very large part in British pop culture.

Tonight Kylie went for all-out-glamour. She wore a sparkly strapless velvet vintage black dress by Vicky Tiel.

The sparkles were also dripping from her ears and around her neck.

Fabulous.

Rihanna looked incredibly cute wearing a metallic silver dress by Dolce & Gabbana, with matching silver shoes.

Rihanna surprisingly did not win any awards tonight.

The Gossip singer Beth Ditto looks looks like a cute sugar plum fairy in her pretty pink prom dress which was custom-made by Luella.

Adele won the Music Critic’s Award, but she loses in the style stakes wearing all black. Beth Ditto needs to give Adele style tips.

This gold mini dress is just too cheap and brassy for Denise Van Outen.

Co-host Kelly Osbourne wore this multi-block-coloured gown.

I have been preferring her shorter looks lately.

Katherine Jenkins gave Kylie a run for her money in the style-stakes wearing an ivory Valentino Spring 2008 off-the-shoulder mini flapper-style dress.

Attention seeking Abigail Clancy, got the attention she was clearly looking for when she wore this sheer dress.

I don’t know what I am more annoyed at, the shamelessness of this stunt, or that fact that she is not wearing matching underwear.

KT Tunstall wore a stunning beaded number. I am usually not a fan of her style, but she gets it right me here.

Kate Nash is another lady who is pretty in pink, right down to her shoes.

Kelly Rowland’s dress has Tina Knowles written all over it, tacky, tacky and tacky, but at least she had the feathers to keep her warm.

Backstage Kelly looked more like a star and less like a streetwalker in this plunge-neck gown.

Leona Lewis in this Roberto Cavalli dress is a little boring and predictable here, when so many others opted for loud bright colours.

Alesha Dixon did not dare to go bare legged in this ultra mini red dress from Jenny Packham’ Fall 2007 collection.

Ferne Cotton has nice legs, but I am hating this red playsuit from PPQ.

Cheryl Cole (in yellow) recently found out in that her husband is a no-good cheating skank.

She has been going though the heart-breaking decision of leaving him, but does not let the anguish show here. Quite the opposite in fact, she is showing Mr Cole just what he is missing.

Good on your girl, way to keep your head up. He is not worth it.

In case you were wondering, I am HATING the lipstick, everything else works though.

I am loving what the other girls are wearing as they look sexy and fun, but the Farrah Fawcett hair on the red head, Nicole, is just killing me.
