Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Danica Patrick In Badgley Mischka - 2013 ESPY Awards

Danica Patrick attended the 2013 ESPY Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California yesterday evening, joining the likes of Maria Sharapova, Selena Gomez and Gabby Douglas.

The Auto racing driver wore a Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2013 black dress with an embellished bodice, leather panels and a suede skirt which she shortened from the look book to show off those toned pins.

Gold sandals and a black clutch completed her sassy look.

She always delivers at this event, even if this dress isn’t quite season appropriate.

Best Dressed Award
I wasn’t really expecting much from this event to be honest.

That all changed when I saw Venus Williams.  She really wowed me wearing a Mara Hoffman Spring 2009 print silk-chiffon maxi dress, with plunging neckline and tie to the waist.  She accessorized with a silver necklace and a matching ring.

Her hair was swept to one-side to add more elegance to her look.

She looks ace wouldn’t you agree?

Most Consistent Award
I only see Driver Danica Patrick on the red carpet once a year at this event and she always impresses.

Last year she wore a cute Nanette Lepore mini dress, this year she opted for a sexy yet sweetly feminine, Stella McCartney Fall 2009 dress.

The dress has been modified from the runway to be shorter plus her dress has nude panels with a lace overlay.

I love that she kept the rest of her look classic with simple jewelery, complementary two-tone black peep-toe heels and her hair styled into a beautiful updo.

Nice Dress, But I Prefer The Runway Version Award
Demi Moore looks great in her custom-made Zac Posen Resort 2010 cold-shoulder dress, but I LOVED the runway version so part of me feel a bit disappointed even though Mrs Kutcher looks super hot.

Black satin Bally platform peep-toe pumps and gold bracelets completed her look.

Most Improved Award
Serena Williams always goes for an ultra glamorous look which usually fails to work.

On this occasion her teal blue Roberto Cavalli gown is perfect.

The colour is gorgeous and the fit is flattering. For once I don’t notice her muscle, but I do notice her twins.

How does she run around a court for 2 hours? It’s gotta hurt.

De Ja Vu Award
Jaime Pressly wore a very similar Joey Tierney Couture LBD, and styled her hair in almost the same way when she attended the “I Love You, Man” LA premiere.

When she looks this drop dead gorgeous why not recreate the magic I guess.

Her skin is positively glowing.  She’s very much the yummy mummy.

Nice dress, shame about the hair Award
Miranda Kerr wore a fabulous white Calvin Klein haltered gown which looks stunning on her, but the hair doesn’t quite work for me.

I like that she tried something new as her style is usually the same, but I don’t think it suits her.

Worst Make-Up Award
WNBA player Lisa Leslie didn’t look in the mirror before she left the house. I refuse to believe anyone would knowingly leave their home looking this bad and not be aware.

YIKES!!!!

Most Zzzzzz Award
Out of all the Victoria Secret models who walk the red carpet Marisa Miller has to be the most boring, predictable and uninspiring.

Like Amanda Bynes it’s always the same formula.  Tight, short, black or white, Herve Leger or Dolce & Gabbana.

On this occasion she’s wearing a white strapless short Dolce & Gabbana dress, with a jeweled belt from the Spring 2009 collection.

Best Dressed Award
Leighton Meester stayed away from the mini skirts and mini dresses like most of her contemporaries, and opted for a very grown up look, wearing a beautiful green Lanvin Spring 2008 Grecian draped cocktail dress.

She accesorized with black peep-toes, gold earrings and a gold bracelet.

Her hair appears to be lighter than usual.

Best Strapless Award
I am not a fan of Katharine McPhee, but I absolutely adore this strapless dress.

It’s cute, fun, flirty and totally unique.

I love the embroidered pattern and the tulle hem.

Best Legs Award
I love this mini purple one-shouldered Tadashi Shoji dress on Blake Lively, her legs appear endless.

The dress is cute and appropriate for the event, but the shoes are so boring.

A gladiator heel, or a strappy sandal would have made a whole world of difference.

She accessorizes with a large patent belt, and a chunky ring.

Most Improved Award
Apparently this dress Lauren Conrad wore is a one-of-a kind custom dress she designed specifically for this event.

Yes I am just as shocked and skeptical as you are.

The sweetheart necklined maxi dress is multi-coloured with blue, white, taupe and orange.

Lauren accessorized with two gold pendant necklaces, gold bangles, and her ‘Lauren’ ring.

Best Maxi Floral Award
Sophia Bush looks absolutely adorable here. Her strapless floral Jenni Kayne Resort 2009 gown gives her a sophisticated air we are not used to seeing on the actress.

Her taupe clutch, belt and bracelet were a perfect choice.

Best Mini Floral Award
Sophia chose a maxi floral dress, but Brittany Snow opted for a mini floral dress, which is simple gorgeous.

The red peep-toes were a great idea, as they compliment the dress, and really stand out on the blue carpet.

Best Sparkle Award
Teen Choice host Miley Cyrus sparkled in her tiered sequined Moschino Cheap & Chic Spring 2008 sequined dress.

She accessorized with slouchy taupe suede boots, which helps keep her look young. She also wore three necklaces of varying lengths, including a ‘Miley’, name tag, a butterfly and half a broken heart.

I wonder who has the other half?

The make-up was thankfully light, and her hair was trademark wavy.

All in all, an age appropriated look, for a change, on the red carpet.

Best Use Of Colour Award
Rachel Bilson is striking in this ceramic blue asymmetrical Brian Reyes dress. The actress wore her one-shouldered mini dress, with a pair of strappy khaki heels.

Her nude make-up is fresh and flawless.

Best Hair Award
Vanessa Hudgens’ trademark wavy hair, was last night replaced by sleek iron straight hair.

With her cute dimpled smile the young actress wore a beautiful Catherine Malandrino three-toned tiered strapless dress.

She wore her dress with a two-tone crystal clutch and Mischa Barton favourite Christian Louboutin Mad Mary Janes.

As always, Zanessa stole the show, by cozying up on the red carpet.

‘I’m Not A Girl’ Award
Hayden Panettiere wore this very elegant, and interesting red, pink and white watercolor silk strapless gown, which cinched in at the waist.

The elegance is complete with her up ‘do.

Just OK Award
I love the fuschia skirt on her Jenni Kayne Resort 2009 ensemble and the multi-coloured necklace, but if it was not for those two elements, Kristen Bell would have faded into the background in this ‘Just OK’ ensemble.

I think she was trying to go for an edgier look wearing, than we are used to seeing on her.

She has had better moments on the red carpet.

Most Glamourous Award
Olivia Wilde has an air of regal elegance about her.

Her BCBG Max Azria draped and ruffled ivory dress and grey belt, was accessorized with a gold clutch and peep-toes.

Best Heels Award
This is the second time I have featured Danica Patrick on my blog, and I have noticed that she loves funky footwear.

The Racing Driver’s stand-out gold gladiator heels, complimented her gold studded belt which she wore with her grey/blue strapless dress.

Best Tutu Award
Danity Kane are not known appearing on Best Dressed Lists, but Aundrea Fimbres looks so cute in this strapless Elsie Katz Couture Spring 2008 mini tutu dress.

The dress is made of chrysanthemum brocade with rulled petticoat and hand-formed crystal beaded blossoms from the Spring/Summer 2008 collection.

Best Clutch/Shoes Combo Award
I do love yellow and denim, they always work well together.

Jordin Sparks breaks my rule of wearing jeans on the red carpet, but for this teen event, she is forgiven.

The singer was the most casual at this event, wearing a green layer t-shirt with a pair of dark wash jeans.

I am still pleading with her to remove those streaks in her hair.

Best Couple/Best Dressed Female Award
I love Victoria Beckham, you know I do, but for her to walk the red carpet with sunglasses on, (one of my red carpet NO NO’s) is beyond pretentious, although I do appreciate that she is channeling Audrey Hepburn here.

Luckily for her she has that hot arm candy in her husband David Beckham, and she wore a stunning primrose yellow RM for Roland Mouret Pre-Fall 2008 ‘Kleber’ cocktail dress, with an origami-pleated neckline, and full-length zip at the back, which makes me forgive, but not forget.

What I also admire is her restraint to not have worn shoes to match her dress.

Best Dressed Male Award
Hotness.

In some pictures it looked like David Beckham had tucked his tie into his shirt, but the soccer stud was actually wearing a white waistcoat. Such a smooth look for the handsome Becks wearing a Spencer Hart suit and Tom Ford shoes

David won Best MLS Player on the night, a feat that was not very difficult.

Best White Award
For such a hot sunny day TV personality Terri Seymour chose right with this white Azzedine Alaia mini dress, which she matched with gold YSL tribute pumps.

Best Sparkle Awards
I love Venus Williams – who looks a lot like Serena here – in this black and silver sequined plunge-neck Diane von Furstenberg dress with Giuseppe Zanotti strappy heels.

The more championships she wins, the better her style becomes.

Best Female Over 6ft Award
It is not easy being tall, muscular and dressing elegantly, but WNBA player Candace Parker pulls it off, looking very glamourous in her champagne gown.

The star won Best Female Athlete on the night.

Best Accessories Award
I would never have thought to match yellow with grey, but IRL driver Danica Patrick, makes it work with her Nanette Lepore Spring 2008 strapless mini dress.

Not crazy about her hair though.

Simple, But Elegant Award
Sophia Bush’s dark olive one-shouldered Fendi Fall 2008 gown, is a huge departure from her normal style of thigh high dresses.

I adore her earrings.

Best Mini Award
Kristen Bell kept is short and very sweet in this strapless purple Jil Stuart Resort 2009 bustier dress, which she accessorized with a long necklace with a huge pendent.

Best At Sticking To What Works Best Award
Model Adriana Lima wore this Alessandro Dell’Acqua dress, which you would very much expect her to wear as it’s cute and short.

Best At Not Playing It Safe/Best Legs Award
Kate Walsh could have worn a dress like Sophia Bush and played it safe, but the actress wanted to have fun last night, and it showed.

The Private Practice star wore a short purple and silver sequined Jenny Packham cocktail dress, which showed off her sexy legs.

She completed her look with strappy Calvin Klein heels.

Just Not Sure Award
I am not sure if I like this printed maxi dress on Ashanti or I hate it, so I am staying on the fence.
