Red Carpet Fashion Awards

This is going to be a tough one, because I didn’t particularly like this Lanvin Spring 2010 dress on either Natalie Portman nor Cat Deeley.

The only person who seemed to make this look work was the model.

Natalie was the first to attempt to pull off this tricky look when she attended the 2010 New York City Ballet Spring Gala back in March.

She tried to dazzle in this look by pairing her look with an out of place black Lanvin clutch, a bejeweled belt and strappy sandals but none of it worked for me.

Cat Deeley recently wore the same dress on “So You Think You Can Dance”.

She went for the less is more approach simply adding Jimmy Choo ‘Private’ sandals.

For simply allowing the dress to do the talking Cat wins for me.

“So You Think You Can Dance” host Cat Deeley was one of the stars invited to InStyle’s Summer Soiree in LA last night.

The British presenter flashed us that cute smile which we all adore as she posed in her gorgeous J. Mendel Spring 2010 dress.

The white and peach tulle dress is festooned with a ruffle detail on the hip which cascades down her skirt.

I kinda wish she’d pulled her hair back, as it feels like it competing for attention again the detail on her skirt, but that could just be down to her pose.

Jimmy Choo silver heels complete the look.

Do you love this look as much as I do?

Would you like to see this up for BDOTW?

De Ja Vu Dress Award
Cat Deeley may have been one of of the oldest stars to walk the red carpet at the 2010 Teen Choice Awards last night, but she held her own against the kids.

The British TV presenter wore a very familiar Preen asymmetrical dress from the Resort 2010 collection.

Her white hot one shoulder bandage dress has a lace-up shoulder, pleated tulip skirt and gold exposed zip at back. This dress was paired with matching cut-out heels.

Neon pink toe nail varnish, multi-coloured bracelets and an aqua blue Jimmy Choo Candy acrylic clutch were the pops of colour added to inject a spark to her look.

Unfortunately the colour pops feel overloaded and too contrived.

Just one pop would’ve sufficed.

The 2010 Teen Choice Awards airs on FOX today at 8:00-10:00 PM (ET/PT).

The 2010 Cartier International Polo event took place at the Guards Polo Club in Egham, England last week and a host of stars attended.

I shouldn’t be, but I was surprised to see Camilla Belle at the event. At this point I don’t think there is an event she hasn’t attended this year.

Camilla did look good wearing a Carolina Herrera Resort 2011 ensemble which included a crisp white sleeveless ruffled top, and a ruffle-hem print skirt which was accented with a fuschia pink belt.

A white quilted bag, taupe slingbacks and pink lips to match her belt completed the look.

I’m not sure what she was doing there (or at any event) but if her only purpose was to look pretty she succeeded.

Katherine Jenkins wore a white Lanvin asymmetric ruffle dress which she’s worn once before.

This dress has also been worn by Michelle Williams at the “Shutter Island” New York Premiere and Kim Cattrall at the Laurence Olivier Awards in London.

Champagne wedges complete her look.

Like everyone else at this event, Leslie Mann opted for a summery dress wearing a floral print Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2010 dress.

Even though she has black trims on her dress, I would’ve preferred a lighter coloured shoe.

Singer Paloma Faith is known for her alternative approach to fashion, so I wouldn’t expect a summery dress from her.

She wore a floral print Dolce & Gabbana dress which she paired with a stunning Philip Treacy hat and yellow platform heels.

Cat Deeley looked pretty wearing a vintage maxi dress with her Balenciaga bag.

Geri Halliwell actually looked really good wearing this blue mini Herve Leger dress which we recently saw on Stephanie Pratt.

The former Spice Girl wore her dress with gold Louboutin’s whilst carrying a silver Louis Vuitton bag.

Despite her dress being a re-run, Katherine Jenkins is my favourite here.

On Wednesday night Cat Deeley hosted the Top 6 live performance show of FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance”.

The British host has great style. She’s proved this on many occasions, but I question her judgment with this Lanvin Spring 2010 dress.

My problem is not the nude spaghetti strapped Lanvin dress with layers of red chiffon, but her decision to wear a dress like this on a  TV show when the audience just won’t get it.

A dress like this deserves a red carpet in Cannes, LA, New York, Paris or London where we could appreciate it on a grander scale.

Cat opted to wear her hair back and paired her dress with nude Jimmy Choo Private sandals.
