Red Carpet Fashion Awards

There aren’t enough words in the English dictionary to describe how beautiful Thandie Newton is.

I don’t think I’ve ever dislike anything Thandie has worn. She always looks amazing as she always knows what works well for her shape and skin tone.

She oozes style and grace from every pore. I’m sure she could even make a bin liner looks sexy.

At this party hosted during Paris Couture Fashion Week, the actress wore a stunning Calvin Klein nude dress with a embroidered detail through-out and a gathered detail on the hip.

I wasn’t crazy about this dress on the runway, but Thandie has made me fall in love with it.

Her dress was paired with nude sandals, invisible make-up, a shimmering box clutch and a sleek updo.

Dasha Zhukova maybe dating a Billionaire, but she’s not afraid to wear a dress which is a few season old.

When she looks this good in her nude Burberry Prorsum Spring 2008 dress, why not?

It’s a sexy little number and the colour is complementary to her colouring.

You may remember Emma Watson wore this dress back in February 2008 to the “Burberry & Vanity Fair Portraits” event in London.

Claire Danes always looks simple, elegant, and stylish.

Some of you would – and have – said her style is boring, but she sticks to her trusted formula of classic shift that complement her shape.

Is Megan Fox serious? Like really?

She’s at a Couture show for Christ sake, can’t she at least pretend like she deserves to be there.

She should be taking acting advice from the great Cate Blanchett – who’s doing her best to ignore her – because lets face it pouting her way through “Transformers” doesn’t make one a good actress.

*All hail the Queen is back*

Cate Blanchett hasn’t been on the red carpet in a long while as she currently lives in Australia.

Cate and Giorgio Armani have a perfect working relationship.  He creates stunning pieces I’m sure with her in mind, which is why the star was the guest of honour at this show.

She didn’t wear any of the pieces on my wish list, but this Armani Privé Spring 2009 floral sheath dress with an oriental vibe is simply stunning on her and she wears it with such grace.

We are still and will never be worthy *bows*

Kasia Smutniak is the face of Giorgio Armani’s new fragrance ‘Idole d’Armani’.

Giorgio chose Kasia because she has a fresh and modern appeal which combines true feminine sensuality.  She is a rare beauty.

The stunning model wore a floral print Armani Privé Spring 2009 jacket, with a black skirt as she posed alongside the designer.

She wears one Armani Privé dress and this grants Megan Fox front row access and a seat next to the great Cate Blanchett?

Seriously what is this world coming to?

Her dove grey one-shoulder Armani Privé dress is gorgeous I won’t take that away from her, but the make-up once again lets her down.

She really needs to sack her make-up artist because she’s gone from orange to yellow now she’s just too pale.

Elsa Pataky always presents herself well. She’s always graceful, elegant and well dressed and knows a thing or two about Couture gowns so she has earned her spot in the front row.

Her bangs were a bit too blunt during Cannes but they have grown out to a more versatile length.

Her Giorgio Armani Pre-Fall 2009 LBD is simple but so so elegant. I love the silhouette it gives her and the silver details on the shoulders which she complements with a silver clutch.

My hero worship for Dasha Zhukova started off very high at the beginning of the week, but her stock is falling quite sharply.

She looks cute in her Thakoon Resort 2009 printed dress, but it’s much for fitting for an informal event not an Armani Privé show.

I almost missed this because I didn’t recognise her.

Katie Grand would have stood out. I wouldn’t have missed Katie Grand.

Isabelle Huppert also decided to dress down for the occasion considering she was the couture queen at Cannes Film Festival.

Très disappointing.

I wasn’t surprised to see Tinsley Mortimer at this show.

The socialite wears a lot of Dior pieces on the red carpet and for this occasion she opted for a navy and gold halter neck silk top, with a matching sheer skirt.

The pop of colours came from her self designed yellow clutch and a her bubble gum pink nails.

In the absence of Dior queen Charlize Theron, I was looking to Marion Cotillard for the front row wow moment. It never came.

The actress arrived wearing an all black Dior look which I found to be quite dull.

Many of you were saying that Dasha Zhukova always has the same expression, well here you have a smile.

The editor-in-chief of Pop magazine looked extremely casual wearing a black tank top, striped skirt and black sandals to attend this show.

Don’t people dress up in couture to go to couture shows anymore?

Co-founder of fashion label Kova & T, editor-in-chief of Pop magazine – the first issue will be released in September – and fashion darling Dasha Zhukova has to be one of my Top 10 favourite fashionistas.

I haven’t blogged about her in a while but I was in awe of her two stunning looks from last week.

My favourite was Dasha’s multi-coloured Marios Schwab Fall 2009 dress with a 3D optical crystal-print. She totally made the dress her own by modifying it from the runway version to make it a one-shoulder dress.

She wore her stunning dress with a Pauric Sweeney clutch and Jimmy Choo Glenys python sandals.

Dasha attended the Tesla Launch Party recently wearing what I believe is a Chloé single breasted blazer, Sonny Crockett style, with a white tank, denim shorts, snakeskin heels, a gold clutch and a gold bracelet.

I  love this effortlessly sexy casual look.  I’m definitely going to recreate this look.

Can’t wait to see more from her.

Claire Danes arrived at the Film Independent’s Spirit Awards held at Santa Monica Beach earlier this year wearing a two tone Lanvin Spring 2009 strapless bustier dress, with a gathered skirt.

Her look was made more interesting with a nude Lanvin necklace from the same collection, but dialed down with uninteresting black peep-toes.

Dasha Zhukova opted for the same Lanvin dress when she attended “The Hermitage 20/21 Dinner at Sotheby’s” in London back in April.

She added a simple gold necklace, taupe heels and a box clutch.

Funny woman Chelsea Handler for once wowed me at the “Women In Film’s 2009 Crystal + Lucy Awards” in California when she walked the red carpet wearing the same dress.

This has to be the most sophisticated I have ever seen Chelsea look, as she paired her dress with champagne heels and a Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

Claire is ruled out because of her uninspiring heels.

Dasha wins because she could make a black bin liner look chic, plus her accessories complemented her look better than the other two.
