2008 MTV Music Awards Red Carpet – Best Dressed

Best Group Award
Finally the Pussycat Dolls get it oh so right.

I love the soft neutral colours of both the dresses and make-up. Such a refreshing change from the S&M gear they usually wear.

Melody Thornton kind of upsets the balance for me in her 3 piece suit, but the other 4 are perfection.

Best Comeback/Most Improved Extensions Award
I knew she could do it. Britney Spears made a massive comeback last night collecting 3 awards for a blah song and a so so video, but what impressed me most is that she more than pulled her sh*t together.

Her extensions look like they weren’t purchased from Jessica Simpson’s HairDo line.

The shorten Atelier Versace Fall 2008 silver beaded dress was gorgeous, and reminded me of Britney of old.

Welcome back Brit Brit.

Best Glow Award
Ashlee Simpson is rumoured to be carrying twins, which apparently is the new thing in celebrity childbirth.

The red head took to the red carpet in a black draped empire-lined Alexander McQueen Fall 2008 gown, with a stunning train.

The dress has a mixture of Gothic chic and feminine elegance that looks so right on Mrs Wentz.

Best Mini Award
Ashlee Tisdale provided the little sparkly dress wearing a Roberto Cavalli strapless mini which was covered in white paillettes.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Hair Award
Pink’s red and navy stripped Alexis Lamontagna Fall 2008 gown strapless gown, was stunning. I really fell in love with it.

I think the dress suited Pink, but I just did not like her hair.

Best Legs Award
Ciara showed off plenty of leg in her metallic Dolce & Gabbana dress, which she wore with Louboutin shoes, Jimmy Choo starred patent clutch.

Best Ass Award
Hurley brand ambassador and face of the line’s new fall campaign, Bar Refaeli attended the show wearing a grey cotton tank dress custom-made for the model by Hurley. The dress did well to show off her best asset.

Bar kept her look on trend for fall by adding piles of statement jewels by Badgley Mischka.

Best Strapless Award
Nothing makes you feel young, cute and girly like a Bestey Johnson dress. And that is exactly how Jordin Sparks looked.

You Did Not Suck Award
Lauren Conrad is not my favourite person, but give credit were credit is due, she did look gorgeous in this white dress by Pogah Couture. I especially love the skirt of this dress.

She completed her look with silver Sergio Rossi heels, and a silver Kara Ross clutch.

Most Fashion Forward Award
Rihanna wore a black bustier with a Peter Pilotto Fall 2008 print shield skirt in vibrant green/yellow.

The skirt is the show stopper, as it is has a very futuristic feel to it.

She completes her edgy look, with a pair of white platformed t-bar heels.

Cute Shoes/Clutch/Nails Combo
The dress Victoria Justice is adorable, but how cute is she to have matched her shoes, clutch and nail colour? So cute.

Golden Girl Award
Audrina Patridge gold and peachy dress was suited to her golden tan. She wore her dress with a gold vintage clutch by Daniel Swarovski.

Best Theme Award
Katy Perry channeled Wonder Wonder. So cute.

Best Rock Chick Award
I love rock chicks in dainty dresses. Hayley Williams of Paramore wore a green Topshop vintage inspired dress, with a cute bow tie, torn tight and rubber platforms.

2008 Fashion Rocks Red Carpet – Best Dressed

Best Couture/Best Dressed Award
I LOVE, Love, Love Hilary Swank in this lilac Givenchy Fall 2008 Couture one-shouldered dress.

The colour, the matching shoes and the draping detail, I love it all.

I would not have thought that Hilary would pick something so edgy, but it works.

I would have loved if she had taken this look further and spiked her hair or messed it up a little.

Best Non-Dress Award
Even in a silver blazer and tight fitting pants, Charlize Theron still rocks it.

Her blazer was fresh off the runway from the Rag & Bone Spring 2009 presentation she had attended earlier on in the day.

She completes her look with a Dior statement necklace.

Surprisingly Fabulous Award
If someone had told that Brandy was going to be wearing a dress from the Lanvin Fall 2008 collection, I would predicted it would be a disaster, but she totally pulls off this Lanvin shiny black structured dress.

And I commend her for making it work, because this is not an easy dress too pull off.

I always assumed that whoever wore it on the red carpet, would make the dress look like a dustbin liner, and she does not.

She completes her look with the now popular YSL Trib Two Platform Pumps.

Best Black Award
Rihanna’s Monique Lhuiller Fall 2008 strapless gown with a ruffled neckline, and a jeweled belt, was so fantastic, that I hardly noticed how much I dislike her current hair cut.

What A Refreshing Change Award
You can normally rely on Beyonce to wear a blinged out dress, or a ridiculous tight fitting mermaid style dress, but on this occasion we have a very cute navy mini dress with accentuated, velvet shoulders.

Very classy, very understated, very chic. I love it.

Best Va-Va Voom Curves Award
With Beyonce toning it down, we had to look to Ciara to provide va-va voom curves, and she did, wearing a stunning black and white sequined Elie Saab Fall 2008 asymmetric gown.

She has an amazing body, and this dress fits her like a glove.

No So Lame Award
For once I don’t hate what Paula Abdul is wearing, in fact I really like it, as it compliments her stunning figure.

The gold lame dress is not over the top, its not tacky, its so not like Paula.

Best Mini/Best Legs Award
Hayden Panettiere really loves showing off her legs lately, and she does so again wearing a multi-coloured chain-mail Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2008 mini.

I much prefer the Heroes star with longer locks.

Best Use Of Colour Award
There was not a lot of bright colour on the red carpet last night, so I thank Kate Mara for providing that, with her Zac Posen multi coloured knit dress.

Don’t You Scrub Up Well Award
Who knew Emily Procter had this in her?

Emily is not one to take to the red carpet too often, but she looks amazing here with her champagne sequined Collette Dinnigan Fall 2008 dress and glossy mane.

Just OK Award
Leona Lewis would have got more than ‘Just OK’ had she worn her beautiful black and white Roberto Cavalli Resort 2009 mini dress without the tights.

I love the embroidery on the bodice of this dress.

Best Sparkle Award
I love a sparkling embellished dress, and Molly Sims’ Donna Karan dress is just that.

Most Surprising Award
Vivica A. Fox surprisingly does not offend me, as for once she does not look like one of those honeys from a rap video.

Her look is sophisticated in this black Oscar de la Renta Silk faille embroidered dress which she teams with bowed Christian Louboutin Very Noeud slingbacks.

Most Improved Award
Ashanti goes up and down all the time. This time she does well. It would not be my choice, but she works this heavily embellished fuchsia Marchesa Spring 2008 dress with cut-out detail very well.



Best Dress/Clutch Combo
Award
I love how Elizabeth Banks Stella McCartney’s Pre-Fall 2008 dress compliment each other, but I am a little disappointed with her hairstyle.
