Who Wore Stella McCartney Better? Alexis Bledel or Corinne Bailey Rae

Alexis Bledel attended US Weekly’s 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers at Lavo in New York City wearing a Stella McCartney botanical dress from the Resort 2011 collection.

She teamed her chic shift dress with lemon suede wedges and a navy blue clutch.

Corinne Bailey Rae wore the same dress to the 2011 Elle Style Awards which was held at The Grand Connaught Rooms in London back in February.

The UK singer only added black kitten heels to her look.

Alexis accessorized her look perfectly as the colours complemented her look, so she wins for me.

Their Stella McCartney botanical dress is available to purchase from Matches Fashion.

Corinne Bailey Rae In Alexander McQueen – InStyle Best of British Talent BAFTA Party

British musician Corinne Bailey Rae also attended the InStyle Best of British Talent BAFTA party which was held at Shoreditch House in London last night.

Like Thandie she also opted for a British designer.

She wore a black Alexander McQueen long sleeve satin dress.

Her dress has an exquisite embroidered detail on the neckline which gives it a regal feel.

It would’ve been nice had Corinne worn her hair back to fully show off this detail, but this hairstyle is very much her trademark look.

The rest of her look was kept simple because nothing should upstage this dress.

Black ankle strap pumps completed her look.

2010 MOBO Awards – Corinne Bailey Rae In Derek Lam & Roksanda Ilincic

The 2010 MOBO Awards took place at the Liverpool Echo arena last night.

Singer Corinne Bailey Rae arrived wearing a Derek Lam Fall 2010 black gown with a deep plunging neckline.

The jersey dress is super sexy without being too suggestive.

Her look was paired with a Mulberry Daria clutch which was just presented during the Spring 2011 presentations.

She later changed into Roksanda Ilincic Arisha silk-satin dress from the Fall 2010 collection.

Her forest green silk-satin pencil dress has an oversized collar and an asymmetrical draped panel.

The surprise part of this dress is the back which is a rich chocolate-brown colour which is the same colour as her grosgrain belt with a sequin and bead-embellished floral detail at the back.

Corinne completed her look with a pair of green gold studded ankle boots.

She was by far the best dressed at this event.

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better? Jada Pinkett-Smith or Corinne Bailey Rae

Jada Pinkett-Smith and Corinne Bailey Rae both wore this Stella McCartney paillette-embellished dress from the Fall 2010 collection is very different ways.

Jada wore her dress to the London premiere of “Karate Kid” 2 months ago.

She opted out of the organza overlay which the model wore on the runway, as she paired her dress with Brian Atwood pumps and a silver clutch.

Corinne Bailey Rae wore the runway version to the Mercury Music Prize Awards which was held in London last night.

She paired her dress with open-toe heels and her platinum award.

As much as I loved Jada in this dress, I’m so grateful to Corinne for wearing the runway version because that organza train really adds a lot to this stunning dress.

Jada’s dress is nothing we haven’t seen before.

I also preferred Corinne’s shoe choice.

2010 Elle Style Awards – Corinne Bailey-Rae In Diane von Furstenberg

Golden Girl Award
Corinne Bailey-Rae was at the 2010 Elle Style Awards in London last night to present the “Best Music Award”.

The singer looked stunning in her Diane von Furstenberg liquid gold jumpsuit, which she said she picked out herself.

I loved the cowl-neckline, her neutral make-up and I will forever be jealous of her voluminous mane.

Black pumps and a black clutch completed her look.

The Q Awards

Pixie Lott looked adorable wearing a Gucci Fall 2009 black and silver dress, with black feathered detail on the shoulders.

She opted out of the runway belt, which actually works much better for her.

Surprisingly I don’t mind the tights here.

It’s been a very long while since we last saw Corinne Bailey Rae on the red carpet – February 2008 to be precise.

She’s bounced back from her grief to return to the red carpet looking sensational wearing a black and forest green striped Moschino Cheap & Chic Fall 2009 dress with black ankle strapped heels.

I love the dress, but I’m so jealous of her hair.

I wish mine would blow-out like that.

I’m not a Lily Allen fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I do love the new shag.

I’m going to the hair salon later today, so I may take this picture along for inspirational.

I also like Lily’s simple look in which she wore a long-sleeved ivory beaded dress with black leggings.

She completed her look with YSL sculpted platform pumps.

Sophie Ellis Bextor and her husband Richard Jones walked the red carpet together, as they often do.

Sophie wore a black Dolce & Gabbana velvet and satin dress with voluminous shoulders which we’ve seen on the red carpet before.

She completed her look with Christian Louboutin Eugenie heels and a snake-print clutch.

As always Sophie oozes class and sophistication.

I can deal with Fearne Cotton’s Olivia Rubin embroidered tulip peplum dress, but her leopard print ankle boots are just hideous.

Amy Winehouse attended with her god-daughter Dionne Bromfield.

Amy seemed to be in good spirits showing her new…pink Preen dress.

My…hasn’t she grown since being out of the spotlight.

2008 Grammy Awards Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
Fergie was amazing last night. This is truly the best I have ever seen her. She was glowing in her newly-engaged bliss, wearing a canary yellow Calvin Klein strapless gown with Cartier diamonds that completed the look.

Does anyone else think that her lady lumps appear to be slightly bigger?

Risk That Paid Off Award
Rihanna has been sporting a few looks that have not worked best in her favour, but this one did.

It is not an easy dress by Zac Posen to pull off with its feathers, ruffles and folds, but she worked it out.

I was not liking the neon nail polish though.

Most Improved Award
This weekend Natasha Bedingfield sported some hair and make-up disasters, but she pulled together for the Grammys, wearing this stunning lavender Reem Acra Spring 2008 strapless belted gown.

Best Floral Award
I loved this Zuhair Murad Spring 2008 gown. Carrie Underwood was bang on trend with the florals, but was slightly underwhelmed by her hair. Carrie has great hair, but on this occasion it fell a little flat in comparison to her hair at the Pre-Grammy’s Party.

Best Embellishments Award
Corinne Bailey Rae could not look more bored at this event, but I just loved her Luella Spring 2008 dress which was mostly made up of blue poppies.

Best Rock Chick Award
I LOVED Cyndi Lauper last night. She was full of energy and enthusiasm, unlike a lot of her contemporaries.

For 54 years young, this woman looked amazing. I am glad she is still as effervescent as ever.

Best Black Award
Faith Hill always looks amazing and elegant, and did not disappoint wearing a Valentino Spring 2008 one-shouldered gown.

Best Teen Award
Miley Cyrus is showing that she can look grown up and cute all at the same time wearing this white layered Celine Spring 2007 mini dress with Sergio Rossi sequined heels.

Best Over 50 Award
Yes Natalie Cole is over 50 and looks amazing in this printed dress.

Best On Stage Ensemble
Beyonce looked amazing rocking out in a very obviously lip-syned performance in this modified Armani Privé Fall 2007 Couture ensemble.
