Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Only Camilla Belle can out do herself in the space of a week.

She started off looking divine in Jason Wu, and last night she looked divalicious in Alexander McQueen.

If you’re anything like me you have been scared of tthe magnificent McQueen Spring 2010 collection getting into the wrong hands. Thankfully this is not the case.

With the styling the looks felt quite hard on the runway, but Camilla brings a softness to her multi-coloured dress with the bustle skirt and beaded shoulders.

Thandie Newton is the latest celebrity to join the Prabal Gurung fan club after Leighton Meester joined yesterday.

The stunning actress never disappoints.

She walked the red carpet wearing a black and white strapless Prabal Gurung Spring 2010 brush painted rose print draped dress.

As you can see from the other Gurung dresses, a bow accent is featured on this dress.

Had Dania Ramirez not worn a Herve Leger Spring 2009 dress we have seen countless times on reality stars and D list celebrities I would’ve said that I loved this dress on her.

At this point I’m so over this dress she’s lucky to be featured.

I love Amanda Peet’s stunning white gown, but it feels a tad out of place on this red carpet were everyone else opted for shorter sassier looks.

Whenever I see turquoise necklaces I always think of  Eva Mendes at the Golden Globes.

2009 ALMA Awards

Best Dressed Award
It’s been a while but Selena Gomez finally wears something that I really love, as she had been dressed older than her teen years.

I adore her pink Tracy Reese Black Label gown, especially the cute petals adorning the bodice and shoulder.

It’s the perfect gown for her both the colour and style.

Best Spring 2010 Red Carpet Debut Award
Jordana Brewster picked a stunning gown from Reem Acra’s recently presented Spring 2010 collection.

The strapless draped canary yellow gown is such an ethereal colour which adds warmth of her skin.

Perfect choice for her.

Back to Black Award
After having a very brief flirtation as a blonde, Nelly Furtado goes back to her natural darker hair colour.

She looked stunning last night wearing Elie Saab Fall 2009 black halter-neck gown with contrasting lace panel for a provocative twist.

This is her second Elie Saab look in a row.

Slightly Disappointed, But I Do Like It Award
I expected a big gown from Eva Longoria on this red carpet, but I guess she was saving them for the show.

The host for the night opted for a strapless taupe paillette covered column Oscar de la Renta dress – which slightly squash the twins – paired taupe heels.

Her hair and neutral make-up are perfect for this look.

Best Non-Supported Actress Award

Jennifer Morrison should really have worn a bra with her Herve Leger cream gown, because the twins are looking a wee bit lopsided.

Once I got over that I could appreciated how stunning she looks.

She could have easily opted for a neutral make-up, but added a dash of red to the lips for a more sultry look.

Frizz Ease Award
Dania Ramirez’ also wore a canary yellow gown, but hers was by Pamella Roland.

I love the gown and the criss-crossing ruched detail on the bodice, but girlfriend needs some serum in her hair to control that frizz.

De Ja Vu Award
Jamie-Lynn Sigler wore a gown earlier this week in exactly the same colour, but this time her gown is strapless.

I’m more excited by the necklace than the gown.

Most Disappointing Award
Salma Hayek would normally proudly show-off the twins, wear a stunning gown, or do both.

This is not a look I would associate with Salma.

The shorter velvet deep lilac modified Bottega Veneta Fall 2009 dress is hideous and so over accessorized with the two necklaces and jewled headband.

YSL metallic Trib Two heels and a matching Bottega Veneta box clutch completes this terrible look.  I really hate it.

Worst Dressed Award
I was surprised Eva La Rue was wearing a Zuhair Murad gown, because this gown is very Las Vegas show girl to me.

From the colour to the embellished neckline, it just screams tacky.

What is it with the lack of support on this red carpet?

I’m so grateful Eva Longoria is keeping her cute sassy little dresses phase. The LBD and tuxedo phase didn’t sit well with me.

This is how I prefer Eva.

The pint-size ‘Desperate Housewives’ star looked stunning wearing a white pleated organza strapless Marchesa dress with a gold embroidered waist band.

I love the colour against her skin.

Gold peep-toes and a sweeping updo complete the look.

Dania Ramirez stepped onto the red carpet wearing a playful LBD by Ina Soltani.

The gorgeous actress looked glam in the black one shoulder taffeta mini dress with floral appliqué detail cascading from the strap to the bodice and a ruched hem.

Paulina Rubio paired a sexy little aqua dress with a leather jacket and YSL Fall 2008 gold platformed heels.

Nice dress, but did she really need to wear that leather jacket?

Jennifer Morrison kept her look very simple wearing a white kimono sleeved dress with gold peep-toes.

I don’t think I have ever said this before in reference to Ashlee Simpson, but I LOVE what she is wearing.

Usually her look has a “I Wannabe In The Band” type of vibe to it, but here she channels a very cute, feminine summery look that I just can’t get enough of.

Her strapless shimmering champagne coloured Jill Stuart playsuit is so chic, which she pairs with pearls, a white Dolce & Gabbana clutch and grey Brian Atwood heels.

For me the best dressed at this event.

Katie Cassidy wore a modified Balenciaga leopard print dress from the Fall 2009 collection.

I love the draping detail around the hips defining the waist, with her bold multi-coloured clutch and silver strappy heels. I’m really happy black pumps are not in this picture.

I don’t know who Yvonne Strahovski is, but I knew it only took me 2 seconds to fall in love with her cute ensemble.

Her Camilla & Marc Spring 2008 striped blazer with her ivory skirt and blood red shoes has a Ralph Lauren feel to it.

Love it.

Jessica Stroup shows a bit of her sassy side wearing a shortened black strapless Rachel Roy Fall 2009 dress with lace panels.

She paired her dress with Stella McCartney black heels and a matching Sergio Rossi clutch.

I’ve loving how her bob is constantly evolving. I can barely remember how she looked with longer hair.

Jessica is neck and neck with Ashley Greene as my favourite red carpet newbie this year.

I go back and forth with everyone who wears Herve Leger. I know many of you wish these bandages dresses were burned, but some do look great.

This isn’t one of those times. Eliza Dushku is a busty lady and this type of dress doesn’t flatter.

I preferred this Herve Leger armor-trim dress on the runway with one strap rather than two, but I do love the YSL tribute sandals which complement the dress well.

Eliza also carried a bright colourful clutch.

“Lost” actress Emilie de Ravin has been MIA from the red carpet for a long while, but she makes a spectacular return wearing a beautiful ivory lace Max Azria Fall 2009 mini dress.

The runway dress is styled have more of a tougher edge, but Emile’s fully lined version appears softer although she added a studded belt to prevent her look from being too sickly sweet.

Like Alexa Chung, Cat Deeley is flying the flag for us Brits in the US but her chic style is more to my liking.

Cat wore British brands via her a white crochet Jaeger dress paired with tan Mulberry sandals.

Our English rose glows so beautifully, with clean golden locks.

Jennifer Morrison opted for a strapless orange Sonia Rykiel dress with a folded neckline and a voluminous skirt.

I love the bright colour and the cute braided hairstyle.

She pairs her look with a Raven Kauffman Couture clutch.

Miranda Cosgrove has such an infectious smile it’s hard not to love her.

The actress walked the red carpet wearing a Vena Cava Narthex tiered dress.

The brushstroke-print tiers on the bodice and hem adds a touch of colour to the cream sleeveless dress.

Dania Ramirez opted for a white Dolce & Gabbana trademark strapless bustier dress with a eyelet skirt and bright yellow heels.

Krysten Ritter wore red strappy sandals with her midnight blue Proenza Schouler quilted bustier dress.

The dress has a quilted silk charmeuse bustier with perfectly complements the voluminous pleated silk faille skirt.

Sanaa Lathan looked radiant wearing a Tadashi Shoji Fall 2009 hyacinth print chiffon one-shoulder dress.

Jordana Brewster’s Reem Acra Fall 2009 gold leaf jacquard halter dress with black belt, ensure she stood out amongst everyone else who opted for a more summery look.

Garcelle Beauvais opted for a full-length one-shouldered pale pink dress with a coral floral print.

She paired her dress with gold, a tan clutch and coral hooped earrings.

Maggie Grace is always so graceful.

I love her one-shouldered dress with a Dries van Noten Spring 2009-esqe mosaic print.

I’m really not keen on Shenae Grimes’ make-up, but her navy zipper trimmed Isabel Lu dress is cute.

Her look is paired with Miu Miu heels and a Kotour clutch.

Radha Mitchell wore a floaty floral vintage Cardinali dress and vintage KJL bangle from Decades Inc., paired with a Bottega Veneta clutch.

The white sunglasses and wedges add to the summery look she was going for.

Jessica Lucas wore a beautiful emerald one-shouldered Jay Godfrey Resort 2010 dress with a black waistband.

The “Melrose Place” actress accessorized with black pumps, a black clutch and a Swarovski bracelet.

The fashion roller coaster that is Lynn Collins takes another nose dive.

Although I do like the dress and the bright pink lips, the rest of the look feels alien the dress.

The hair is really granny-ifed and the Jeffrey Campbell Potion Ankle Boots – which are very similar to the Opening Ceremony boots – are very rock chick making this look too busy for me.

Excuse me whilst I pick my chin off the floor.

I’ve waited my whole lifetime for Jennifer Aniston to wow me, and she does wearing this Prada Spring 2009 silver metallic crushed dress.

What I love about this look the most is the confidence she exudes. It’s oozing from every pore and for me that’s more captivating than the colour and the cut.

Jen could have gone for the safer runway dress as it’s in her favourite colour – Black, but she not only opted for the silver dress, but a shorten silver dress plus she didn’t press it like Nicole Kidman did.

This may not sit well with Jennifer Aniston’s loyal fans as this is such a huge departure from her usual style, but I love it.

Oh and I hate to be crude, but where did those twins sprout from?

This is the first time in a long time that Amber Valletta has proved her supermodel status.

She hasn’t impressed me much on her last few outings, but she works it out in this maroon sequined Proenza Schouler 2009 Pre-Fall dress.

I love the colour the cut-outs in the shoulders, and the contrast exposed zipper at the back.

She completed her look with her hair tied back with sweeping bangs, whilst wearing black patent Brian Atwood “Maniac” pumps and carrying a feathered Raven Kauffman Couture clutch.

Like Jennifer Aniston, I would have bet on Jodie Foster picking the black runway version of this Giorgio Armani Fall 2009 dress. But instead she wore a grey satin, shadow-print version with complementary strappy sandals and clutch.

Her dress is exquisite with the origami folds on the bodice, and the daring low cut.

I love that these women are stepping out of their comfort-zones at this event.

Chelsea Handler wore a two-tone Lanvin Spring 2009 dress, with satin champagne strappy heels.

We’re not used to seeing Chelsea this polished and spectacular, but she pulls this look off with great aplomb.

I hope she keeps up this sophisticated style of dressing, as I could really warm to her.

Mary McCormack tried to bring this grey strapless Yves Saint Laurent Spring 2008 dress up-to-date with a cage belt and YSL Trib Two’s.

It’s a nice look, but we’ve seen this dress so many, many, many times before.

Michelle Trachtenberg wore a Reem Acra knee-length dress covered in gold sequined leaf details and a contrasting waist band.

Her dress which she wears with black open-toes heels is nice enough, but it feels a bit too old for her.

Jenny McCartney looked out-friggin-standing wearing this crisp white pant suit.

Even though she has been dressing so sophisticatedly for a while now, I’m still always surprised at her fabulous looks.

Hair, make-up earrings, clutch, everything is perfect. My only bug-bear are her extremely long pants. I hate the thought of them picking up dirty as they drag on the floor.

Of all these looks Dania Ramirez’ is the one I would definitely purchase to go shopping at the mall on a sunny day. I love this summery look with the white tube top, floral tulip skirt and purple accessories, but it’s feels too casual for the red carpet.

Terri Seymour showed off that enivalbe figure wearing a coral RM by Roland Mouret Fluro dress with pleated neckline knee-length dress, paired with black patent pumps.

Selena Gomez wore a simple black H&M tank dress, with equally simple black pumps.

Elizabeth Banks set the bar really high for her red carpet looks during Cannes Film Festival, but I’m not really enjoying this look on her at all.

Her sparkling MaxMara dress is nice enough, but I have never been a fan of a sheer yoke. Reminds me too much of ice-skaters.

The actress completed her look with satin black pumps and a matching clutch.

Keke Palmer wore a printed maxi dress, which she accessorized with peacock earrings.

I really don’t like this dress as too much going on with the clashing prints plus those earrings are just hideous and so unnecessary.

Lynn Collins’ invite must have said fancy dress.

Christina Hendricks has such a stunning figure, and she embraces colour in many of her looks.

With that said I can’t help but be really disappointed with her all black, all boring look at this event, when so many women really step it up a notch.
