Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Hopings Got Talent Fundraising Event, London

Lily Allen looked outstanding wearing a prom-esqe red Prada dress, teamed with taupe Fendi bow-front peep-toes, and a blue quilted Chanel bag. One of many that she owns.

Her make-up was flawless, I love the a pop red on her lips, and I adore her neat black bob.

Surprisingly well put together.

Sienna Miller tried her hand at a glam rock chick look by teaming a studded Temperley London cropped jacket, a studded vest and a studded Temperley London belt with faded black skinny jeans and studded ankle boots.

I glad Sienna has managed wear a casual look that doesn’t include a hint of boho, but she has over done things with the studded details. At this point I wouldn’t be surprised if she was wearing studded pants.

Her look was completed with a Romanek crocodile clutch.

“Public Enemies” Chicago Premiere

French actress Marion Cotillard wore a very summery lilac strapless Christian Dior dress which she paired with silver open-toe heels and a double buckle belt.

A curly opdo and a brown clutch completed this stunning look.

Sam Fine’s “The Basics of Beauty” DVD Launch Party, New York

Without a single hair out of place Iman stepped a little out of her comfort-zone of glamorous gowns and tea dresses, to wear this black shimmering Derek Lam Spring 2009 jumpsuit with harem pants.

Divine as always.

2009 Los Angeles Film Festival’s Opening Night Premiere Of “Paper Man”

Christina Ricci kept her look simple wearing a purple dress with a black elasticated waist.

White pointy pumps and a quilted Chanel bag completed the look, but Christina opted out of wearing a bra.

Grand Opening Of The New BOA Steakhouse In West Hollywood, LA

Looking fabulous is really easy for Terri Seymour as the former model has a stunning figure.

Whether she’s wearing a designer gown or this strapless floral Topshop dress, it’s almost impossible for her to have an off day.

She completed her look with YSL Trib Two slingbacks.

8th Annual Four Seasons Of Hope Gala, New York

I feels like something is missing from Estelle’s Rachel Roy Pre-Fall 2009 black jumpsuit.

She has a pop of colour via the purple pumps, but I’m still missing something.

Barnes & Noble Book Signing, New York

Lauren Conrad opts for a cute casual style for her New York book signing at Barnes & Noble.

The star wore a very similar look to her last book signing.  Her she wore a loose fitting black and white top with black shorts and black Christian Louboutin pumps.

Wavy hair, a single bracelet and a megawatt smile completed the look.

Dita von Teese – as we expect – looked spectacular wearing a long draped flesh silk chiffon Christian Lacroix Fall 2008 Couture gown with a pink ombre train, a matching clutch and a copper bow.

The gown has been modified for the better from the runway version.

Lucy Liu is one of my Top 10 Best Dressed actresses on the red carpet. She looks outstanding wearing this white Giambattista Valli Fall 2008 sheath dress, with a woollen cape.

She completed her look with beige Jimmy Choo platform heels, and a taupe clutch.

If this dress looks a little familiar to you, that’s because Victoria Beckham wore something similar by the same designer last year.

I’m so loving seeing Elie Saab on the red carpet so often lately, and I hope we get to see more tomorrow.

Marcia Cross arrived at this event looking sensational wearing a lilac Elie Saab Spring 2009 Couture gown, which sparkled with many embellishments. The gown had cap sleeves and a gorgeous floral detail on the empire waist.

She completed her look with a complementary silver Daniel Swarovski clutch.

Christina Ricci LBD from the Monique Lhuillier Fall 2009 collection had a asymmetrical ruffled detailing, which did not over power her, nor the dress.

Her look was complete with tan Christian Louboutin pumps, and black satin clutch.

Her blunt bangs and red lips just perfect this look for me.

I’m so surprised Emily Blunt picked this dress, because I don’t think it flatters her at all.

My main problem is the pleated bodice and the jeweled detail on the waist.

Eva Longoria always wears bright vivid colours, so this chocolate brown Reem Acra dress is a surprise.

I hope to see a return to bright colours soon.

Like I said last time, Sienna Miller has lost her appeal. Nothing feels fresh or new with her anymore.

Starting with that hairstyle. Haven’t we seen that look a million times before?

I really dislike the colour, and the material of her Ungaro gown also.

Carice Van Houten wore a black and white graphic print Jay Godfrey halter-neck maxi dress.

I’m not quite sure what has happened to Reese Witherspoon.

After her split with Ryan Philippe she wowed us time after time on the red carpet. Lately I always feel so underwhelmed by her choices.

This Dior LBD is cute enough, but she just lacked pizazz.

Lily Collins teal column gown, had a embellished detail on the empire waist, but it failed to impress me.

Finally someone has worn this multicolour lightning bolt and cityscape print Versace Fall 2008 dress.

I really enjoyed the selection of these dresses that were presented by Donatella, and I am happy Becki Newton has worn this purple one.

She wore her unique tank strapped dress with Versace black heels.

Christina Ricci opted for a backless Gothic-style grey Atelier Versace Fall 2008 dress, which could not be more perfect for her.

I love the embroidery detail.

Actor Patrick Dempsey, who is the current face of Versace Fall 2008 menswear, posed with Donatella Versace, who as always looks a knock-out with her body to die for.

Of course her stunning lilac gown is totally unique and has not been seen on the runway.

Despite the simple and non-revealing (for her) nature of Mariah Carey’s dress, I feel very underwhelmed looking at her in it.

Emma Roberts looks very grown up in this black shimmering strapless mini Versace bustier dress, with Jimmy Choo heels.

Jane Krakowski dares to wear this Versace Fall 2008 dress that has also been worn by Donatella herself, but totally look amazing in it.

The actress wore her midnight blue wet-look dress, with gold Louboutin’s.

Juliette Lewis’ Versace Fall 2008 fuchsia heels are working better for me than the beige Versace dress.

The dress feels a little tame for the wild star.

For the first time ever I feel that a dress works better on the runway than on Helena Christensen. I really don’t think this Versace Fall 2008 asymmetric lace dress works on her.

“Two Lovers” Premiere

The Chanel Resort 2009 collection was only 5 days ago and Gwyneth Paltrow is already wearing it on the red carpet.

With her stunning jewels, Gwyneth wore this midnight blue plunge-neck satin gown with black trim and bow detail.

“Wild Blood” Premiere

I would have loved this dress on Monica Bellucci had it been all white.

“Le Silence de Lorna” Premiere


British actress Kristin Scott Thomas is wearing a royal blue Lanvin Spring 2008 trapeze cut Grecian goddess gown with horsehair hem .

This dress is truly magnificent and on the runway the dress billowed into a mushroom-cloud dress . A true work of art. Lanvin Spring 2008 was one of my favourite collections.

Natalie Portman also wears a Lanvin Spring 2008 cobalt blue silken tiered ruffle cocktail dress .

Although this dress did not appear on the runway, it is distinctively Lanvin in the colour, shape and ruffles.

Chopard Party

Gwyneth Paltrow is also wearing Lanvin Spring 2008. This time it is a ice white asymmetric dress, which she teams with another pair of stunning gladiator heels by Balmain.

Christina Ricci is uber sexy in this slinky black Bottega Veneta Fall 2008 strapless gown. I love the shape she is making whilst posing in this dress.

Dita Von Teese used wear mostly black on the red carpet. Her colours of choice lately have been black and white.

This Dior Couture Fall 2007 dress is typically Dita with the wasp-waist and full-skirt.

Supermodel’s never have a day off look immaculate. Eva Herzigova proves that in this with plunge-neck dress with sequined trim detailing.

Maria Menounos has made a big effort to look fabulous at Cannes, and it is really paying off.

This dress is truly stunning with the rosette detail and the gold sequin embroidery.

Salma Hayek is again sporting the Frida Kahlo hair style. What happened to the sexy Spanish waves she used to wear?

I still feel this is not the real Salma. Too muted in this Gucci Fall 2008 dress, too covered up, too plain. Where is my sexy senorita?

Most Confusing/Worst Dressed Award
I understand the theme, and I understand that Christina Ricci was going for Wonder Woman here, but the pink ruins what could have been a great Givenchy dress.

Maybe if the pink had been black it would have worked.

Shame.

Not So Golden Girl Award
Mary-Kate Olsen’s custom-made Diane von Furstenberg gold sequined dress had plunging neckline, and a sexy slit, but looks slightly too big on her, which is strange considering the dress is customed.

Her hair is a disaster and ruins anything that is good here.

Worst Hair Award
A pair of straighteners would have sorted that mess right out.

I would have much preferred it if this Calvin Klein dress was a plunge-neck instead of a turtle neck.

Your TV Stylist & Your Red Carpet Stylist Should Meet Award
What is up with Blake Lively lately on the red carpet?

For me she is hitting foul balls left, right and center. Her style started off great on the red carpet, but has been on a downward spiral ever since.

Blake was meant to be the Sarah Jessica Parker of my sisters generation both on and off the red carpet, but it is just not working. She looks about 20 years older than what she is here in this Ralph Lauren Fall 2008 strapless gown with feathered detail….Booorring.

As usual, I expected more for young Blake. Whoever is dressing her for Gossip Girl, needs to sprinkle some of that magic onto the red carpet.

Where was Leighton Meester? She would not have looked this bad.

Most Disappointing Award
This one goes out to Victoria Beckham, David of course looks gorgeous.

I love Victoria Beckham so this hurts, but her dress is too see-through and she appears to have nothing underneath, so I feel like I can see her boobs, her face looks too pale and I usually like her hair up but on this occasion, not so much.

It would also have no killed her to have smiled at least once on the red carpet.

Worst Dress/Shoes Combo
Here is another person I was not expecting to see on the worst list.

Katie Holmes looks great from the ankles up. Her vintage Giorgio Armani red sequined beaded bustier and full ball gown skirt from the Fall 1993 collection is amazing as is her Boucheron jewels, but why OH WHY did she wear those blue Louboutins?

Worst Embellishments Award
I was torn on Mischa Barton’s Missoni dress for a while.

I like the chiffon straps, but I am not so keen on the dripping bead work and the gold skirt with a taupe overlay.

Lame Award
Isn’t it amazing how Michelle Trachtenberg has matched her skirt to her gold lame petal nipple covers?

She is not quite rockin’ this vintage YSL dress in a way I had hoped.

Far Too Safe Award
Sarah Michelle Gellar was far too safe with this black shapeless strapless Bottega Veneta dress.

Worst Hair Accessories Award
I know thanks to Gossip Girl headbands are back, but I am not loving the jeweled headband on Amanda Peet. I am also not crazy about her moody Derek Lam Fall 2008 strapless gown with a matching waist belt.

Most Uncomfortable Award
It looks like Eva Amurri can not breath in this Louis Vuitton Fall 2008 dress.

Eva is a busty lady, and this dress is crushing her lady lumps.

Worst One Sleeve Award
I am NOT a fan of the one long sleeve and this ruins what would have been a great night for Fergie in Calvin Klein.

One-shouldered or even strapless would have worked better.

Worst Use Of Colour Award
Kimora Lee Simmons’ kids did not colour-in her dress. This dress was actually designed like this by Kevan Hall.

Worst Lace Award
I was never a fan of the entire Prada Fall 2008 collection being lace and was hoping not see it on the red carpet.

Unfortunately Tilda Swinton is wearing this Prada Fall 2008 beige lace dress, and to make matters worse, she wore an orange brooch and a green velvet shoes.
