Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Debra Messing In Donna Karan - 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Debra Messing was one of the very first celebrities to hit the red carpet at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards held this evening in Beverly Hills.

The ‘Smash’ actress looked stunning in a strapless Donna Karan Resort 2013 gown.

The basic black dress featured heavy textured detail with a ruched bust and voluminous skirt was teamed with Rupert Sanderson ‘Jacoba’ pumps.

Her famous red hair was pulled into a sleek ponytail, showing off giant teardrop Samira 13 earrings. Two giant armfuls of Samira 13 bangles completed the look.

When asked by Ryan Seacrest what were her predictions for the evening’s fashion, Debra responded: “A lot of colour. I wanted to go bright but I put this one on and I had to have it. Maybe it’s the New York influence.”

The night is young, so only time will tell if Debra’s predictions are correct.

Debra Messing attended the launch for Post-It’s new anti-bullying campaign, held at New York City’s PS 15 Roberto Clemente Elementary School on Wednesday afternoon.

The actress showed of the ever-popular fit-and-flare silhouette wearing a Rafael Cennamo Fall 2012 cocktail dress.

The pewter-and-black dress features an interesting play on the classic houndstooth print in a metallic jacquard.

Simple black pumps and signature red waves complete the look.

Do you love this metallic look, or is it a bit too much for the casual daytime event?

Debra Messing attended the Broadway opening night for ‘Peter and the Starcatcher’ on Sunday in New York City.

The actress looked great wearing a Michael Kors Spring 2012 dress.

Her exotic safari-inspired zebra-print stretch crepe dress with long sleeves would’ve been perfect with the runway belt to give her a more defined waist.

Instead she opted for brown leather accessories including a snakeskin clutch and Christian Louboutin knotted peep-toes.

Luscious curls and a diamond-accented snake necklace completed the look.

I like neither the heels nor the necklace with this look.

The necklace feels a tad fussy for such a print and the shoes would’ve also been better had they been simpler.

This dress sells itself; it didn’t need much else.

You can buy Debra’s Michael Kors dress from Net-A-Porter.com which comes with a belt.

Michael Kors always has a front row full of major celebs.

Jessica Alba: The actress seemed to thoroughly enjoy the Michael Kors presentation as she took many pictures of key looks on her iPhone in between pointing out looks to stylist Brad Goreski who was seated next to her husband. She stole the show wearing a turquoise keyhole sheath dress with a leather yoke from the designer’s Pre-Fall 2012 collection. Teamed with tights and ankle boots, the actress completed her look with a Pre-Fall black-and-white haircalf clutch.

Paula Patton: I didn’t see Paula’s stylist, whoever he or she may be, but I hope they were taking plenty of notes, as Paula is in need of a red-carpet redemption look following last year’s Mission Impossible promo tour. On this occasion she looked gorgeous also wearing a look from the Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2012 collection. Her LBD with lace sleeves and a lace yoke was teamed with black leather criss-cross sandals from the same collection.

Amber Heard: The actress, who never looks anything less than wow, looked stunning wearing an ivory super-fitted dress with a black lace detail. A chic ponytail and an orangey red lip colour completed her look.

Debra Messing: Sporting a warm rich plum hair colour, the actress stood out the most in the front row wearing a Resort 2012 neon-pink sheath dress accented with a gold patent leather belt. The colour is outstanding, but I would’ve loved her to have added a black belt to complement her black Louboutin peep-toes.

Back in January 2008, Debra Messing glided down the red carpet at the 2008 SAG Awards wearing an Oscar de la Renta Spring 2008 gold embellished halter gown.

For me it still ranks as one of her best ever red carpet moments.

Natalie Cole wore the same dress to the 2011 Angel Ball in New York City last month.

The singer looked sensational in this gown, but she overloaded it with too many jewels when the dress didn’t need any extra bling so Debra wins for me.

Camilla Belle looked stunning and elegant wearing a Marchesa Spring 2010 magnificent dress.

This kind of dress could’ve easily gone so wrong, but the embroidered white tulle cocktail dress with a feather hem and sleeves makes her look like an elegant swan rather than Big Bird.

Black strappy heels prevent this look from being too costumey.

This is second time in a row I haven’t been jumping up and down with exciting with what Demi Moore has worn on the red carpet.

On this occasion her asymmetrical Zac Posen Spring 2010 black dress looks better on the runway, to her halter neck version.

Angie Harmon pairs grey thigh-high Rodate Fall 2009 boots with a maroon wide neck Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2009 dress.

I like the pieces separately, but together it’s a bit of a disaster.

If this is Angie’s attempt at being edgy, I would say stick to being slightly predictable.

Gabrielle Union was my second favourite on this red carpet.

The beautiful actress wore an ivory plunging dress, with draped details on the hips.

Normally she faded into the background, but on this occasion she stands out.

Lisa Edelstein looked effortless chic wearing a black strapless Paule Ka gown adorned with a nude bow.

Debra Messing opted for a pile it high hair ‘do when she walked the red carpet wearing a black long sleeved dress with embellished cuffs.

For a Style event, I’m very much underwhelmed by most on this red carpet.
