Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Marisa Tomei wore a dynamic silver strapless Kai Kuhne Fall 2009 dress with contrasting black panels.

The longer length could so easily look dowdy, but this striking number is certainly far from that.

I can imagine this dress looking better in a shorter length though.

The Victoria Beckham dress collection was well represented at this event.

Brooke Shields wore a black strapless dress from the Spring 2009 collection, with black peep-toes.

I love the well tailored bodice, and the belt she added.

We all know how much Victoria Beckham randomly wears gloves with her ensembles, so it’s quite ironic that Debi Mazar chose to wear leather gloves with a cobalt blue dress from Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2009 collection.

The accessories are overkill, but I love Debi in this dress despite you all agreeing with me that Kelly Ripa wore this dress better.

Mandy Moore works a bright red Miu Miu dress teamed with black, triple strap heels and a matching clutch.

I love the puffball sleeves, but overall I’m not stoked.

Maybe if Jewel spent one night at home, her leg would heal faster.

Diane Kruger was looking as radiant as ever in a strapless two-tone YSL gown. She outshone everyone at this event.

The detail on the bodice is exquisite, and the blue is electrifying.

Becki Newton is wearing a stunning pair of YSL Spring 2009 heels, which I have been lusting after since seeing them on the runway last year.

Amanda from Ugly Betty would be green with envy watching Becki walk the red carpet in a glimmering green sequined YSL Spring 2009 strapless dress.

Claire Danes looked exquisite in a silk YSL Pre-Fall 2009 navy halter gown, which had a ruched bodice, and a draped skirt.

Her hair was styled in an elegant updo, and she carried a gorgeous gold jeweled YSL clutch.

British actress Emily Mortimer wore a round-necked maroon YSL Spring 2009 dress.

Her dress was accessorized with a black velvet with bow detailed belt, which sits a little too high for my liking, as it gives her quite an unflattering shape.

Zoe Saldana is gorgeous wearing a strapless green YSL Pre-Fall 2009 gown, which had a small black bowed detailed sash.

She completed the look with a matching emerald green satin clutch.

Claudia Schiffer only just pulls off this YSL Spring 2009 dress. On most of us this full-length, high neck gown would look like a sack, but on Claudia it’s just works.

Maybe it was the YSL caged sandals and the ruby red lips, that helped perfect her look.

Ginnifer Goodwin has been a bit off on the red carpet lately. But she managed to redeemed herself with this stunning strapless YSL print gown.

I love how it flows with a slightly ruffled and tiered fishtail skirt.

Kanye West and girlfriend Amber Rose are making the most of their new-found fashion status.

Amber Rose looked quite elegant from the waist up, wearing a white wrap dress, which had a thigh-high split, revealing her tattoo.

The look was completed with a black furry stole, a black fringed clutch, and black satin pumps.

Brooke Shields was sophisticated in strapless gown. The gown had a bow detail on the bodice, which seems to be the theme of the night.

Had Mary-Kate Olsen styled her hair better, I would have really liked this look, but an Olsen isn’t an Olsen without a hint of signature scruffiness, right?

Mary-Kate wears her black kimono with a silver belt, which matched her YSL clutch.

Parker Posey opted for a burgundy gown, with a matching furry bolero. The look was complete with a multiple gold linked necklace, and a YSL clutch.

Patricia Clarkson was elegant in a blue strapless YSL gown. I adore her feathered clutch.

Louis Vuitton Hosts A Tribute To Stephen Sprouse Cocktails, New York

I don’t know how, but I almost missed this one.

How Agyness Deyn makes it onto any Best Dressed List continues to baffle me.

The model arrived at this event wearing a LBD, a graffiti style day-glo oversized vintage Sprouse blazer and Doc Martins. She accessorised with an orange crucifix and limited edition Louis Vuitton bag.

I am not feeling the graffiti bags, and I am hating Deyn ensemble.

Brook Shields looks delightful wearing a blush pink strapless Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2008 dress.

The dress has a taffeta skirt with a gathered jersey bodice. I was not a fan of this collection, but Brook has made me fall in love with this dress.

Eva Amurri opted for a black fur gilt from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2008 collection, to go with her all black ensemble.

She completes her look with platform heels from the same collection.

Molly Sims works this red blazer as a dress from the Louis Vuitton Spring 2008 collection.

“My Bloody Valentine 3D” Screening, LA

Jamie King wore a Lanvin Fall 2008 black and brown banded cocktail dress, which had a mesh yoke.

She wore her amazing dress with black Christian Louboutin slingbacks.

Pre-Golden Globes Luncheon, LA

January Jones gives us the cold shoulder in this Stella McCartney Spring 2009 LBD.

I really like Jessica Alba’s ensemble, especially the lavender pants, but I am not crazy about the hair or lack of make-up here.

Opening Of The London Boat Show 2009, London

Kelly Brook channels her inner Olive Oyl, as she salutes the press at the London Boat Show launch today. The TV presenter wore a stripey Diane von Furstenberg Resort 2009 strapless dress especially for the occasion, with red strappy sandals.

The 8th Annual Awards Season Diamond Fashion Show, LA

Rumer Willis’ delicate nude dress is gorgeous, but as usual, the hair just does not work for me.

Olivia Wilde is so angelic wearing this two tone chiffon Jason Wu Spring 2009 dress. She really is becoming one of my faves on the red carpet.

Debra Messing’s steel grey draped Donna Karan dress, is better than the one she wore at the People’s Choice Awards.

A darker haired Andrea Bowen looks delightful in this colour-block dress.

Garcelle Beauvais is gorgeous in a green Karen Zambos Baretta silk dress.

Taraji P. Henson wore a cream and orange floral Rachel Roy Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with complimenting accessories.

Best Dressed Award
Best Dressed was a close call between Brooke Shields and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, but Brooke’s fuchsia Badgley Mischka Resort 2009 gown, with its ruffled asymmetric detail on the skirt, was beautiful and had a very romantic feel to it

She let her dress do all the talking, by keeping the accessories to a minimum.

This is not an easy dress to pull off, but Brooke did with such style and grace.

Most Sexy Award
Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Narciso Rodriguez gown was elegant, with an added wow factor. I fell in love the second I saw it.

The salmon coloured dress suits her complexion, and dress gives her a very sensual silhouette.

The beaded bodice, and the keyhole detail make this dress stand out.

Her diamonds were from Tiffany’s.

White Hot Award
Kyra Sedgwick wore a magnificent L’Wren Scott Spring 2009 white cocktail dress, which had crystals embroidered into the straps and bodice of this dress, for added va-va-voom.

Kyra usually always wears L’Wren Scott, as the dresses are figure-flattering, sleek and chic.

She accessorized with Fred Leighton jewels, and Jimmy Choo sandals.

Best Strapless Award
A high profile red carpet event, is not complete without an Elie Saab dress.

I loved the Elie Saab Fall 2008 Couture embroidered tulle dress Marcia Cross wore last night. The dress had a vintage feel to it, which played on her classic beauty.

She accessorized with Rene Caovilla heels and Hearts on Fire diamonds.

Best Brand Ambassador Award
Tamara Mellon the CEO of Jimmy Choo, and the person responsible for relaunching Halston, is wearing both design here.

Her cobalt blue asymmetric dress is from the Halston Spring 2009 collection, her canary yellow shoes, and zebra print clutch are of course Jimmy Choo.

Best Earrings Award
Christina Applegate’s looked quite regal, as her hair was swept back, allowing us to see her stunning jeweled earrings.

The actress wore baby blue asymmetric Reem Acra Spring 2009 gown, with a gold print, and a stunning train.

She accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz diamonds and Jimmy Choo heels.

Best Silhouette Award
I don’t think Christina Hendricks’ forest green gown was corseted, but she certainly has a stunning silhouette here.

I am so jealous.

Green is a great colour for her, and it’s a colour we have seen other red heads wear on the red carpet.

Best Yellow Award
Mariska Hargitay’s Carolina Herrera one-shoulder gown stood out the most on the red carpet.

The colour was bold, vibrant and refreshing on the red carpet.

She accessorized with Fred Leighton jewelry and Jimmy Choo heels.

Most Elegant Award
Olivia Wilde always manages to look so stunning on the red carpet, and does so again in her Reem Acra gown.

The dress is exquisite with its simple details, and subtle shade, that evokes the glamour of old Hollywood.

She accessorized with Jimmy Choo heels, Stuart Weitzman clutch and Kwiat jewels.

Most Improved Award
Wow, you could have knocked me down with a feather when I saw how stunning Nicollette Sheridan looked in her purple pleated Angel Sanchez Fall 2008 gown.

What a great event for her to turn down the tacky.

I would have loved this look more, if her hair was put up in an elegant updo.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Hair Award
I adore this turquoise Calvin Klein strapless gown on Cynthia Nixon. It makes her appear soft, and it brings out the colour of her eyes.

My only compliant was her hair. It has a very mumsy feel to it.

Best Elie Saab Award
Lost actress Evangeline Lilly, has been missing from the red carpet for a while, so I had forgotten how stunning she can look.

Last night she wore one of my favourite dresses from the Elie Saab Fall 2008 Couture collection.

The paillette covered dress caught every beam of light, making this dress come alive with every step, as she posed on the red carpet.

Best Couture Award
This Armani Prive dress which Heidi Klum wore may not be appreciated by some because of the cape, but I simply adore it.

I love how the cape and the skirt’s asymmetric detail flowed in the same direction, and the Swarovski crystals that sparkled, as she did in the dress.

Best Black Award
Black can be very boring on the red carpet, but Debra Messing’s dramatic Monique Lhuillier Spring 2009 strapless gown, was far from boring.

The dress had lots of layers of embroidered tulle, which grabbed my attention, and really made her dress, stand out from the other black dresses on the carpet.

She accessorized with Fred Leighton diamonds.

Best Embellishment Award
Kate Walsh’s Zuhair Murad mermaid gown was tiered with embellished details, and completed with a rose appliqué. The stunning dress gave her a delightful silhouette.

The red haired actress carried a Jimmy Choo Kase oval clutch and wore Neil Lane diamonds to complete her look.

Best Floral Trend Award
Vanessa Williams’ custom-made Kevan Hall gown was very much still on this summers floral trend.

The jeweled detail on the strap of her dress, compliments her diamond bracelet and 3-drop earrings.

Best Lace Trend
Like Vanessa, Sandra Oh managed to incorporate a trend into her look – lace.

Her black silk organza and tulle Oscar de la Renta Resort 2009 gown, had a lace bodice, and a sash at the waist.

Her hair was swept to the side with loose curls.

She accessorized with Bulgari jewels, a vintage Chanel purse, and Chanel heels.

Best Dress/Clutch Combo Award
Some people might think it lacks imagination for matching items that you are wearing, but Tina Fey does it so well by matching this rich egglant David Meister sweetheart necklined gown, to her jeweld clutch.

Best Marchesa Gown
Jennifer Morrison’s Marchesa Spring 2009 gown was beautiful, as it had a princess quality to it, with its rich champagne colour, beautiful draping an train.

The colour was exquisite on the actress, which she matched with peep-toes heels.

Best Cocktail Dress Award
There were a lot of gowns and dresses that fell just below the knee last night, but Padma Lakshmi opted for a gold embellished Monique Lhuillier Spring 2009 knee-lenght dress.

The stand out dress, had a cowl back, swirling gold beaded embroidery detail and a tulle hem.

The presenter kept the gold theme going, but wearing gold strappy sandals and a gold clutch.

Brightest Smile Award
Kristin Chenoweth had the biggest and brightest smile, as she walked the red carpet last night.

The multi-talented star wore a black Armani Prive gown, which had a cute bow detail on the front.

As she walked the red carpet, I marveled at how her dress managed to stayed up.

Greatest Gainer Award
I started off disliking Jenna Fischer’s Gustavo Cadile custom-made gown, but then it grew on me when I saw it on TV.

These pictures do not do the green chiffon strapless sweetheart neckline gown justice.

Best Halter Award
I was also undecided about Perrey Reeves in this Temperley London gown with intricate detailing on the bodice and neckline. But after seeing so much black and other dark colours, I realised that her cream gown was a welcome relief.

Best One-Shoulder Gown
Jane Krakowski’s one shouldered Versace Fall 2008 gown, was very interesting, as the detail on the shoulder consisted of folds, cut-outs and beaded embroidery.

Best Vintage Award
Rachel Griffiths wore a chocolate brown vintage Bob Mackie gown from Decades.

This gown has a bustier top, with a chiffon skirt, which has a thigh-high peek-a-boo split.

The actress completes her look with Christian Louboutin shoes, and and Alexander Knight clutch.
