Red Carpet Fashion Awards

What a mess.

Courtney Love arrived on the red carpet at the 2010 Brit Awards looking like she just woke up.

I loved Miu Miu Spring 2010 collection with it’s whimsical embellished dresses, but Courtney has destroyed the cute fantasy element of this look.

She paired her dress with a Miu Miu jeweled shoulder bag and a large colourful necklace, which was pretty but just didn’t work with her look.

I hope she returns to her grungy roots, as this type of look doesn’t work for her.

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…

Reese Witherspoon is the current face of Avon, and that gorgeous face looked very stylish wearing a Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2010 strapless dress with a white bodice and a black sheer skirt overlay.

I’m glad the dress is not squishing her twins like it does on the runway model.

I think you know that style-wise I find Lauren Conrad very frustrating, but not on this occasion as she was easily one of the best dressed on this red carpet.

I love that she wore a modern Herve Leger bandage dress whilst sporting vintage marcel waves.

Her look was paired with bright red lips with matching nails which gets me thinking someone has been taking some style tips from Dita von Teese.

Trib Two’s as standard.

Fergie looked pretty fab in her nude feathered Valentino dress.

It’s always a snooze-fest whenever Courteney Cox walks the red carpet, and this occasion is not different.

Gwyneth Paltrow was dressed in all white, barring her pink and yellow Roger Vivier heels.

The actress wore a Balmain Spring 2009 jacket with satin lapels, over a white plunging Calvin Klein Pre-Fall 2009 dress, which had contrasting fabrics of velvet, satin and jersey.

Even though her clothes are all current, she is oozing a retro vibe.

I love the invisible make-up.

Gwynie’s BFF Beyonce Knowles arrived wearing a black fitted Jean-Paul Gaultier Fall 2007 Couture dress, with a black beaded multiple layered necklace.

The only thing sparkling here, are the jewel details on her heels.

I don’t like this at all.

I almost fell off my chair when I saw that Jennifer Aniston’s BFF was NOT wearing black.

Courteney Cox took a break for the norm, to wear this L’Wren Scott metallic spaghetti strapped dress, with matching heels.

I think Dakota Fanning or Miley Cyrus would better suit this haltered black mini dress, with a white bow tie, than Sheryl Crow.

Rita Wilson brought a water brust of colour to the red carpet, in her aqua strapless dress.

She wore the dress with a stunning Lanvin statement necklace, but sadly her pointy pumps let her down.

Angie Harmon’s grey Kaufman Franco jersey dress hugs her in all the right places.

The Huffington Post Pre-Inaugural Ball

Hayden Panettiere wore a light two-tone pastel coloured Monique Lhuillier Spring 2009 strapless chiffon gown.

I am not sure what up with Hayden and strapless gowns, but they always seem to squash her boobs.

The colour of the gown is amazing and flatters her skin tone. She completed the look with a slick updo.

RIAA and Feeding America Inauguration Charity Ball

I don’t even know what this is? An preview of Rihanna’s 2009 Halloween costume perhaps?

What a mess.

Her Jasmine Di Milo Fall 2007 dress, looked much better on the runway.

Speaking of a mess, Courteney Cox arrived wearing a black suit, with a leather trim.

I’m thinking she went to her attic and rummage through the box that said ’80s Clothes To Be Thrown Away’.

Sadly she never got round to it.

Alicia Witt was the only shining light on a red carpet of hideousness, as he stepped out looking delightful wearing a two tone Malandrino Resort 2009 dress, which had a multi-coloured cummerbund of pailette.

She completed her look with her hair teased up in a loose updo, and a gold box clutch.

Mid Atlantic Ball

Jennifer Lopez wore a mint green one shouldered Marchesa gown when she performed at this event. It looks white under the house lights, but I assure you from other pictures it is mint green.

The dress is truly stunning with lace panels on the sides.

Jennifer has been wearing a lot of Marchesa lately, like she did when the brand first launched. It suits her so well.

Neighborhood Inaugural Ball

Singer Faith Hill wore a gorgeous black tiered Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 gown, with ruffled detailing.

Mariah Carey stuffed herself into this black velvet and lace Dolce & Gabbana off-the-shoulder gown.

Would it really hurt her to go up a size?

The Creative Coalition’s 2009 Inaugural Ball

Kerry Washington premiered a new do, as her hair was pulled back, with sweeping bangs.

The actress looked gorgeous in her couture, navy blue tulle Georges Chakra gown. The gown sparkled with Swarovski crystals.

Artist Making an Impact Pre-Inaugural Dinner

Sarah Silverman like to act the fool on the red carpet, but for once she looked really good wearing a beautiful Pamella Roland red chiffon halter gown. She scrubs up nice, when she wants to.
