Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Chandra Wilson In Tadashi Shoji - 2013 NAACP Image Awards

Chandra Wilson looked lovely as she took to the red carpet at the 2013 NAACP Image Awards on Friday evening, which was held at The Shrine Auditorium in California.

The ‘Grey Anatomy star turned to Octavia Spencer’s favourite designer for her red carpet look.

Chandra glowed wearing a Tadashi Shoji Spring 2013 metallic ice-blue draped jersey gown with a sheer rhinestone panel at the bust.

This sparkling detail was matched with Benjamin Adams London silver crystal ‘Chicago’ pumps, an Oroton ‘Opera Crystals’ clutch, a gold bracelet and oval drop earrings.

I love this elegant look from head-to-toe, but I would remove the gold bracelet as it doesn’t blend well with the rest of her look.

Chandra Wilson was one of the many gorgeous attendees to take to the red carpet for the 2012 NAACP Image Awards, held at The Shrine Auditorium in LA last night.

Nominated for ‘Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series for her role in Grey’s Anatomy, Chandra wore an Alberto Makali gown.

Her ivory sequin v-neck gown with floral appliqué detailing is one of her best ever red carpet looks to date.

I love the complementary diamanté clutch.

Chandra’s hair and makeup is absolutely flawless. Like I said she’s never looked better.

Despite it being 100 degrees last night many actresses opted for black gowns.

Alyson Hannigan opted for a stunning black tiered Vera Wang gown with Chopard and a silver clutch.

Tina Fey wore a Gucci black gown with a train. The back of the gown featured green and crystal jeweled brooch.

Chandra Wilson looked beautiful in Pamella Roland black silk faille gown with white crystal floral beading.

Glenn Close glided down the red carpet wearing a black off-the-shoulder gown with sunglasses.

Jenna Fisher dazzled on the red carpet wearing a silk Reem Acra Resort 2010 mermaid gown with an embroidered detail on the bodice.

Amy Poehler looked fabulous also wearing a black strapless Reem Acra mermaid gown, but hers was from the Fall 2009 collection and embroidered with crystal leaf accents.

2009 Tony Awards

Anne Hathaway opted for a classic look, wearing a strapless black Oscar de la Renta Fall 2009 dress, with a feather-print sheer skirt.

I love the detail on the skirt, the red satin Casadei peep-toes, her invisible make-up, and the simple jewelry, which completed the look.

Nancy La Scala wore a Malandrino Spring 2009 nude gown, with a multi chain detail draping from the neckline.

The designer Catherine Malandrino and singer Cucu Diamante have both worn this elegant gown previously.

Nancy decided not to wear her gown off-the-shoulder, whilst accessorizing with a simple cuff, and white clutch.

Marcia Gay Harden was awarded Best leading actress in a play at this event, and for me she was the Best Dressed at this event.

I adore this tiered emerald green Carmen Marc Valvo’s Fall 2009 Couture strapless mermaid gown on her. She looks so elegant, and utterly divine.

Best leading actress in a musical Alice Ripley, wore a bold electric blue gown, which instantly reminded me of Kate Winslet’s Narciso Rodriguez SAG Awards gown.

To perfect this look, I would’ve pick a strappy silver sandal.  Those maroon pointy pumps really don’t work for me.

‘Chicago’ Broadway star Chandra Wilson, opted for an emerald green Alberto Makali empire silk chiffon plunging gown.

The gown is embellished on the straps, and waistline with silver crystals.

This is one of Chandra’s best ever looks. I especially love the 50s style hair, and the complementary silver accessories.

Piper Perabo’s teal blue dress, is divine.

I love the texture, the shape of the dress, and simple silver accessories.

Edie Falco’s blue crushed off-the-shoulder Nicole Miller gown isn’t too bad, but the contrasting gold hem kills it for me.

Josefina Scaglione completed the trio of green gowns, wearing a strapless Jason Wu gown, with a black sash tied to the waist.

She could have easily opted for a black clutch, or a silver clutch to complement her bracelet, but instead she opted for an eggplant clutch, which I love.

It’s really hard for me to concentrate on Laura Benanti’s aqua strapless gown, because I’m dumbfounded by what appear to be DIY bangs.

The sooner she grows them out, the better.

Gina Gershon’s oozes sex appeal from every pore. In her Zuhair Murad pleated gown, she manages to stay sexy, and look elegant all at the same time.

Her gown is magical, I just love the way it shimmers.

Fred Leighton antique jewelry, and a vintage Judith Leiber silver minaudier complete this look.

Jessica Lange looks sensational fuschia Zac Posen gown, with a cascading ruffled detail. I just love how this colour really pops on the red carpet.

It’s always the same look for Kristen Chenoweth. Tight, corseted strapless gowns.

Allison Janney, who was nominated for best actress in a musical, wore a gorgeous purple Gustavo Cadile Resort 2010 gown, with ruched bodice, and a draping detail from the waist.

Worst Dressed Award
I would wear this dress to work or to an interview, in fact I think I have a dress just like this. So I’m surprised Jennie Garth, with access to a lot of dresses, would pick this one.

OK she does not have the keys to Carolina Herrera’s closet like Renee Zellweger, but she can do better than this, even with her D list status.

Most Disappointing Award
Debra Messing is one of my faves, so imagine my deep disappointment to see her take to the red carpet last night in this extremely unflattering Donna Karan dress.

The steel grey colour is not so bad, but the fit is, and so is that thing on the front of her dress.

Why Debra? Why?

Most Unlikely To Add This Dress My Wish List Award
This has to be the most boring dress I have ever seen Reese Witherspoon wear.

So dull, so lifeless, so unlike Reese. I hope she’s saving better dresses for bigger occasions.

Most Uninspiring Award
Apart from the leopard print lining of her Dolce & Gabbana suit, I have no interest in what Katherine Heigl is wearing – although I do like the shoes.

For someone of her caliber, I would have expected more. Anne Hathaway looked so great in her suit this week, that this feels a bit copy-cat.

No Wow Factor Award
The colour was great, but I felt no wow factor from Chandra Wilson.

Worst Gown Award
There were a few gowns at this awards show last night, but Lisa Edelstein takes the prize for having the worst one.

Again it fails to flatter, and again I expected more.
