Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

It hard to see in this picture but Debra Messing’s ruby red jersey one shoulder draped column gown was encrusted with Swarovski crystals, which sparkled as she walked the red carpet.

She looked amazing as she added Lorraine Schwartz jewels to her outstanding look.

Hayden Panettiere wore a J. Mendel Resort 2010 gown with Fred Leighton. Her gold Judith Leiber clutch stood out, as did her necklace.

Marc Bouwer is known for his bedazzling gowns and this is what Anna Torv picked for her red carpet moment.

Jennifer Morrison wore a simple red Calvin Klein dress with an asymmetrical hem paired with Cartier jewels.

Sigourney Weaver is usually guaranteed for the worst dressed list, but she glows in her stunning one-shoulder David Meister gown.

Blake Lively in Versace makes up the list of ladies who wore red on the night.

Bergdorf Goodman

The biggest stars took to the stores here in New York for the biggest Fashion night out the world has ever seen.

My chin hit the floor when I saw Victoria Beckham – not all for good reasons.

Firstly she was not wearing a black pencil dress – SHOCKER.

Secondly she wasn’t wearing black period – minus her thigh high Gucci Fall 2009 boots.

Thirdly the dress wasn’t from her collection and lastly WOW.

Where did this woman come from? This isn’t slightly tedious VB we have been looking at for the last six months.

This is someone who wanted to shake off the boring tag and shock us all.

And she did.

Unfortunately I really didn’t like make-up, and I didn’t understand why she wore such an edgy look with a headband.

On the positive side I did like her modified Giles Fall 2009 reptile print strapless dress.

I don’t like to talk about weight on my blog, it’s number no no. But I’m sure many of you will debate her weight because she is looking a tad gaunt.

Oscar de la Renta Boutique

Sarah Jessica Parker wore her ‘Fashion’s Night Out’ tee with pride pairing it with a taffeta Oscar de la Renta asymmetrical skirt, and a black belt encrusted with diamante’s on the buckle.

I love the way she styled the tee.

Anna Wintour who organised this FNO event, showed her support for the cause by wearing the campaign t-shirt like SJP.

She paired the tee with a colour co-ordinating Prada Spring 2009 pencil skirt.

Ralph Lauren Women’s Boutique

Blake Lively turned down the sex kitten for a country chic head-to-toe Ralph Lauren look, wearing a grey embellished blouse with tweed vest and tan crocodile boots.

Camilla Belle – also in head-to-toe Ralph Lauren – went for a sexy chic look wearing a luxurious Pre-Fall 2009 grey wool one-shoulder dress with a pink crocodile belt, brown sandals.

I’m not so sure I like the longer hair, but her dress is spectacular on her.

Bloomingdale’s 59th Street Store

Lindsay Lohan wore an Emanuel Ungaro Spring 2009 Caribbean blue shirt as shirtdress paired with leggings, sky high heeled ankle boots and a trilby hat.

Macy’s Herald Square

Debra Messing looked fabulous wearing a one-sleeved charcoal Michael Kors Fall 2009 herringbone origami dress.

I love the thinner belt she wore with the dress, and the sculptured shoulder.

Vogue Pop Up Boutique at Macy’s Queens

Across town Kate Hudson was also wearing a dress from the Michael Kors Fall 2009 collection.

Her espresso check strapless dress also had origami details on the bodice.

Giuseppe Zanotti Boutique

Channeling her inner Grace Jones, Rihanna looked fierce sporting a hooded Alexander Wang cowl-neck mini dress with a pair of studded sunglasses at night, and Giuseppe Zanotti boots.

Dior Boutique

Charlize Theron was of course on hand to provide the star power to the Dior Boutique.

The actress looked outstanding from her perfectly coiffed hair to her Dior heels.

I just love her silvery blue Dior strapless dress. Hollywood glamour at its very finest.

Victoria’s Secret Lexington Store

Miranda Kerr looked uber cute wearing a colour blocking Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2009 dress we have previously seen on Kate Walsh.

The Hermitage 20/21 Dinner, London

Oh Dasha Zhukova, Best Dressed Of The Week was going to be difficult enough without you arriving at this event looking spectacular.

The Russian beauty wore a two tone Lanvin Spring 2009 strapless bustier dress, with a gathered skirt, which Claire Danes wore to the 2009 Film Independent Spirit Awards.

Champagne heels complete the look.

Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Dinner

Silver harem pants, and a black turtle neck on some would look tragic.

On Diane Kruger? Magnificent.

I’m not even going to attempt this look, as she owns it.

Debra Messing on the other hand, doesn’t have my admiration. Instead I will give her my pity.

Nothing good is happening from the neck down.

Mary-Kate Olsen wore a loose, beaded tunic dress, which one would assume is vintage, but it’s actually from Nina Ricci’sFall 2009 collection.

LOVE the nude make-up, and the way she accessorized with a thick black and gold belt, to give the dress shape.

She added a pop of red via her Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

Kerry Washington opted for a classic tweed Chanel Spring 2009 boat neck dress, with a silver clutch and eggplant heels.

“Obsessed” Screening, New York

I love the detail of the origami folds on Ali Larter’s strapless cream satin Blumarine Fall 2009 dress, plus her Balenciaga strappy sandals, but the hair ruins everything.

Tous Boutique Opening, Barcelona

Kylie arrived at the Tous boutique opening in Barcelona, wearing in a floor-sweeping, black strapless Herve Leger dress with white stripes at the bust for a maritime-inspired look.
