Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Metropolitan Opera Season Opening Production Of ‘Eugene Onegin’ Red Carpet Roundup

While the 2013 Emmy Award trophies were trending in Los Angeles, California, a host of stars came out to walk another red carpet across the States in New York City for The Metropolitan Opera’s season opening production of ‘Eugene Onegin’ on Sunday.

Coco Rocha: The model was appropriately striking and statuesque, as she strutted out a Greta Constantine midnight-blue gown. The architectural silhouette, intricate folded detailing, mock peplum waist and shoulder cutouts all had me at hello. An exaggerated, winged cat eye and bright coral pout brought even more drama.

Mischa Barton: Putting a sophisticated foot forward, the actress wore a Valentina Kova robe dress, punched through with a bold, cerulean blue waistband. A thigh-high slit showed off her black Walter Steiger pumps, which couldn’t help but be outdone by that over-the-top feather clutch. She opted for the no-makeup look, but a bold lip may have been beneficial here.

Patricia Clarkson: The flame-haired actress sparkled in a Philosophy Fall 2013 black gown, accented with an appropriate plunge neckline and a shower of glittering embellishment at the waist.

Prada Overload Award
Dana Delany attended the BAFTA Brits To Watch Event which was held at the Belasco Theatre in LA yesterday evening.

I’m sure she doesn’t mean to, but the former “Desperate Housewives” actress always provides us with red carpet comical moments and this is no exception.

Regular readers will know that Dana is a huge Prada fan and that she buys the looks herself as she doesn’t have a stylist.

This is clearly evident as I don’t believe that any stylist would recommend that their client match a baroque print Spring 2011 Prada dress with a Prada orange and black striped fur stole and a striped Prada clutch.

We get it Dana, you love Prada, but on this occasion the feeling doesn’t appear to be mutual.

Fails To Pull It Off Award
Dana Delany loves Prada. She often wears this brand to major award ceremonies.

To the 2010 Film Independent Spirit Awards last night in LA she wore a Prada Resort 2010 tribal print dress.

As much as I love the dress and she accessorized really well – some may think too matchy matchy – she fails to pull off this complicated look imo.

I feel like she wore this too look hip, rather than because she liked it or because it suited her because it doesn’t.

Best Dressed Award
January Jones is never boring on the red carpet.

She always wows me and last night was no exception.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress wore a futuristic Versace mint green gown, with flowing skirt and a structured corset.

She gave me one of very few wow moments on the red carpet.

Best Dressed Runner Up/Best Marchesa Award
Olivia Wilde was one of the first actresses to hit the red carpet last night and was my Best Dressed for the whole of E! Live from the Red Carpet show until I saw January.

Her mint green chiffon embroidered Marchesa Spring 2010 gown with an illusion panel on the bodice is simply exquisite.

She wears the gown so well, so elegantly as we would expected from the beautiful actress.

Best Bling/Golden Girl Award
I do like a bit of bling on the red carpet and it was kindly provided by Kristin Chenoweth who sparkled wearing a crystal encrusted Zuhair Murad’s Haute Couture Spring 2009 mini dress, with gunmetal grey heels and a matching clutch.

I’m so glad she wore the dress without the runway belt.

Best Versace/Lady In Red Award
WOW.

Blake Lively is truly back.

After a disappointing 2008, she has continued to wow me in 2009.

Some of you like that Atlanta Housewife on E! will think this is too sexy. I say it’s sexy enough, and she has the body for it so why not wear a stunning red Versace Fall 2009 gown like this.

Best Maternity Award
I’m so glad Heidi Klum didn’t wear a tent like at the Costume Institute Gala.

Being pregnant is not a crime so why should she cover up?

I think she looks stunning in her Marchesa custom-made gown, which bares a slight resemblance to the Resort 2010 gown presented as they both have beaded a beaded bodice.

Her lace train is what I really love about this dress.

Gowns, Maternity, Bridal and accessories. Is there nothing that Georgina Chapman can’t do?

It Took Me A While, But I Love It Award
At first I was really unsure about Kate Walsh’s J. Mendel Spring 2010 crystal blue pleated strapless gown, as I thought it was unflattering.

But the more I looked at it, the more I appreciated the soft draping, and how beautiful the colour looked on her.

The actress paired her dress with and Aldo clutch.

Most Improved Award
Dana Delany is usually a hot mess on the red carpet, but she opted for a stunning purple Basil Soda Fall 2009 Couture strapless gown.

Excluding the embroidered bodice it’s quite a simple gown.

Slinkiest Silhouette Award
I love a mermaid gown that gives the wearer a Jessica Rabbit style silhouette.

Jennifer Carpenter’s Zuhair Murad Fall 2009 one shoulder nude tulle gown does that.

The gown has intricate black beading thought-out with a dramatic rosette detail on the bodice.

Better Than The Runway Award
I was really intrigued by Mila Kunis Monique Lhuillier Fall 2009 maroon tulle gown because of the way she had made it work for her on the red carpet.

I really dislike the runway styling, so I’m glad Mila has made me see this dress in a more positive light.

She accessorized with Fred Leighton jewels.

Interesting Change Of Direction Award
For the first time in a while I actually love Chloe Sevigny’s look.

I’m not one who get carried away with her “style icon” tag, I just judge her look by look and this Isaac Mizrahi Resort 2010 one-shoulder polka dot gown I love.

I also love the fact that it’s not an obvious choice.

50 And Fabulous Award
I have a soft spot for Marcia Gay Harden, she reminds me a lot o Helen Mirren in that she’s not afraid to show off her cleavage, like she does in this sequined Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2009 gown.

I love how the sash gives her a tiny waist, to give her an perfect hourglass figure.

Best Couture Award
This bold blue Basil Soda Fall 2008 gown may have a lot going on for you, but it all works for me.

I got texture, embellishments and it beautiful. All the ingredients need for a stunning couture gown.

Thank God She Pulled Her Hair Back Award
I was so happy that Drew Barrymore wore her hair tied back, because that black stripe she had in her hair last week would’ve been disastrous with this beautiful Monique Lhuillier blush gown.

Best Use Of Tulle Award
Rose Byrne was literally picking her gown up as she walked along the red carpet, as there was so much of it.

I loved this Valentino gown.

It was the perfect colour for her, despite it’s size she didn’t get lost in it, and the embellishment were beautiful.

Curvalicious Award
How can you not love Christina Hendricks? She is just too fabulous for words in her L’Wren Scott navy and black lace gown.

I would’ve adored her in a colourful gown, but she looks this hot it doesn’t matter.

Matchy Matchy Award
Ginnifer Goodwin wore a fuschia pink YSL strapless dress.

The dress matched her Brian Atwood heels and her clutch.

The stunning necklace is what pulls this whole look together and I absolutely adore it.

Best Necklace Award
Mariska Hargitay opted for a Carolina Herrera silver shimmering gown, which fitted her like a glove.

Best Embellished Gown Award
Perrey Reeves wore an ivory Naeem Khan chiffon empire waist short sleeve V-front gown with crystal beading.

Grand Opening the One&Only Cape Town Resort, South Africa

Thandie Newton wore a really gorgeous Chanel black dress, with a cute bow tie on the front.

The ruffles sleeves added to the girlie girl nature of the dress, whilst she completed her look with a pair of YSL gold studded heels.

Thandie always looks her best, and never lets me down.

“Race To Witch Mountain” London Premiere

I must start off by saying that I think Carla Gugino’s make-up really lets her down.

It takes a lot away from her outstanding dove grey Reem Acra silk chiffon strapless dress, which is quite exquisite, with its embroidered bodice.

Her look is complete with Jimmy Choo sandals.

“Observe And Report” LA Premiere

Anna Faris is a young actress, so she can get away with this plum Azzaro dress, which looks like a bikini from the waist up.

Although I don’t like the dress, she looks amazing.

8th Annual Comedy For A Cure, LA

Sporting an impressive bouffant, Teri Hatcher wore a toga-style beige dress by Monique Lhuillier.

Whereas her Desperate Housewives co-star Dana Delany, opted for a cute flirty Prada black taffeta dress, with ruffles and a pleated hem.

I really appreciate the maroon heels. Black would’ve been so one-dimensional.
