Red Carpet Fashion Awards

I’m all about the glamour on the red carpet as you know, but I can fully appreciate Chloe Sevigny’s bed hair and “I just threw this on” style.

Last night at the “How to Make it in America” New York screening her look was still in tune with her usual style, but nice and neat.

With touch of pink to her lips and thick black tights the blonde actress wore a Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2010 dress with embroidered details which gave it plenty of texture.

I just love the neckline on this dress which she paired with Proenza Schouler wedged booties, a wrap belt, and a Proenza Schouler croc PS1 clutch.

I really love this laid back look.

Whilst most people partied the night away at the Warner Bros. party, Chloe Sevigny proudly showed off her Golden Globe Award at HBO’s After Party.

She’d changed out of Valentino gown after it was torn on stage by the escort who’s job it was to make sure she got on the stage in one piece.

Her second look was a black Christian Lacroix Fall 2009 Couture embellished dress covered with a tulle overlay.

As much as I liked both her looks, I think I prefer this Lacroix as it suits Chloe’s mysterious style better.

Which did you prefer?

Best Dressed Award

I was a bit underwhelmed by this red carpet until I saw Diane Kruger.

Ever since I attended the Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 Couture show in January last year I’ve been praying to see this gown on the red carpet.

Diane more than does this stunning pink ombre gown justice. The colour really pops on the soggy red carpet on a cold and rainy night in LA.

I love the sleek old Hollywood hairstyle. She was really out to impress.

Her white Raven Kauffman Couture clutch matched the pretty white bow on the side of her dress.

Most Predictable Award

There would’ve been no prizes for guessing that Marion Cotillard would wear Christian Dior.

Style.com even predicted that exact dress she would wear.

Being the face of ‘Lady Dior’ helps, plus when we see her in Dior we always get spectacular results.

Her petrol green satin asymmetrical Spring 2010 dress has a thigh-high split with a black négligée peeping through.

Jimmy Choo ‘Drake’ sandals and Chopard jewels complete her look.

Biggest Shock Award

Courteney Cox walked the red carpet last night wearing a black strapless dress from Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2010 collection.

Like most pieces from VB’s collection the dress was well structured and had a ‘top to hem’ zipper along the back.

I liked the jeweled detail on the empire waist, and the chic updo Courteney sported.

Normally I don’t care much for Courteney on the red carpet, but she really surprised me by how great she looked.

She carried a black Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch.

Her husband actor David Arquette dutifully kept her dry from the pouring rain.

Best Couture Award

This is definitely one of those ‘better on screen look’s.  Unfortunately the picture isn’t doing Drew Barrymore any favours.

Her Atelier Versace Fall 2009 one shoulder champagne gown was stunning.

The nude corset was covered by a nude crystallized overlay, with two clusters of glass fringes on the shoulder and the hip.

Her hair was swept back as not to interfere with the details, as the actress wore Lorraine Schwartz jewels to complete her look.

It’s A Grower Award

I’ve been going back and forth with Julianne Moore.

I was just about to put her on the Worst Dressed list, when I decided that her Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2008 dress wasn’t as bad as I first thought.  Mostly because she looks so elegant.

The grey colour initially put me off this silk bustier gown, but I really like the pleated lace detailed neckline and her green Bvlgari earrings were magnificent.

Black suede Balenciaga stingray sandals complete the look.

Beautiful, Even When Slightly Wet Award

Chloe Sevigny would’ve been the most worried about getting her rose Valentino sleeveless gown wet as it would’ve deflated those beautiful ruffles.

But she was lucky to have a someone to help shield her dress from the rain.

Buccellati jewels complete the look.

Va Va Voom ‘Jessica Rabbit’ Award

Christina Hendricks has the most amazing body, which she always dresses so well.

She leaves me breathless in this stunning Christian Siriano Spring 2010 gown which was custom-made to hug those delicious curves.

She carried a Christian Loubuotin ‘Kephron’ silver clutch and wore Loree Rodkin jewels. Read more…

Last night Zoe Saldana, Diane Kruger, Anna Kendrick and Julianne Moore all attended this party in the same looks from the Critic’s Choice Awards, so here is a look at what the rest of the guest wore.

I usually don’t go gaga over Chloe Sevigny, but I love her in this Christian Dior Spring 2010 chiffon print dress with flutter sleeves.

Sometimes I think Chloe tries a little too hard to be cool all the time, so I love is that she doesn’t over accesorize the look nor wear a leather jacket with it.

With her thick black tights and strappy peep-toe sandals Sofia Coppola wore a Marc Jacobs tulle rainbow paillette dress from the Resort 2010 collection.

The black tulle overlay dress which we’ve seen on Fergie at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards , is embellished with colorful sequins.

Amber Heard was one of my favourites at this event.

The gorgeous blonde actress wore an Alexander McQueen mini dress from the Fall 2009 collection, which is instantly recognisable by the unique print.

Black peep-toes and a white clutch complete the look.

As usual there’s no daylight between Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise.

Back up buddy so we can get a better look at Katie’s knitted black Lyell dress which are paired with Givenchy ankle boots.

Katie seems to have a thing for wearing a dress which exposes her bra.

“Avatar” Paris Press Conference

Zoe Saldana was in Paris recently were she wore a RM by Roland Mouret Jason crepe wrap dress.

The grey dress has a draped collar which gives the casual dress a very smart feel.

I love her the purple peep-toes she paired with this dress.

The Comedy Theatre, London

Keira Knightley kept the Great British winter weather at bay by wearing a leather Burberry Prorsum Fall 2009 coat, which had a warm lining.

A stripey top, skinny jeans and Jimmy Choo Yule biker boots complete the look.

“My Son, My Son What Have YE Done” LA Premiere

I’m sure you will agree with me that had anyone else had worn these Chloe Resort 2010 leopard print tapered pants it would be a major disaster, but somehow Chloe Sevigny pulls them off.

She paired them with a white vest and a leather jacket.

22nd European Film Awards, Germany

Isabelle Huppert aka Cannes “Queen of Couture” arrived at this event wearing a Givenchy Fall 2009 LBD.

It wasn’t any ordinary LBD, as it had only one sleeve.

I love the structure in the shoulders, and the intricate cuts and folds on the that makes this look so interesting.

Hennessey Ingalls Art and Architecture Bookstore, LA

Oh this pop of blue gets me every time.  LOVE IT.

Dita von Teese’s electric blue Alexander McQueen plunging dress was the perfect colour for her pale skin.  I really love the contrast.

She wore her structured dress with black heels, whilst carrying an Alexander McQueen Union Jack skull clasp clutch.

Chloe Sevigny was definitely the poster girl for Miu Miu this weekend.

We saw her Spring 2010 look yesterday, this time she wore one of those plunging Miu Miu dress with a built in bra from the Fall 2009 collection.

As much as I like the dress, it’s not really working for me on Chloe.  The previous kooky look fitted her style more than this embellished dress.

Zoe Saldana opted for a colour-block dress from the same collection which doesn’t work either.

Surprisingly the only thing I like here are the berry tights.

I just wish she’d done more with her hair.  It looks very limp here.

Christina Ricci can do sassy and she can do demure.

The beautiful actress opted for a silver Prada dress with an embellished detail on the shoulder.

Ginnifer Goodwin is looks absolutely adorable in this ivory dress adorned with black rosette details.

Simple, but as always oh so chic.

We’re starting to notice a pattern forming with Jessica Alba.

Simple black – or in this case navy – dresses that neither excite, nor delight.

There is nothing wrong with going au natural, but there is a time and a place.

Note to Jessica Biel: the red carpet is not the place.

Please apply some make-up to warm you up a bit.

It bad enough that you are sucking the life out of this dress – which is your trademark – but please a bit of blusher next time.

I beg you.
