Red Carpet Fashion Awards

“Marley & Me” Paris Photocall

I found it really funny that lot of you sent me the picture of Jennifer Aniston in this Balenciaga floral dress saying ‘OMG have you seen Jennifer Aniston wearing….?‘, and I share your shock.

This is now twice in a row, that the actress has brighten up the red carpet, in a colour other than black, and doesn’t she glow?

OK the brown suede Christian Louboutin Orlan double platform T-straps booties, wouldn’t be my choice to wear with a floral dress, neither would the tights, but I don’t want to criticize her too much, incase she reverts back to black.

2009 Bent on Learning Benefit, New York

It’s not usual for us to see Gwyneth Paltrow wearing such a deep berry shade lipstick, but it worked perfectly with her burgundy Jasmine di Milo one-shouldered dress.

Gwynie looks really vibrant in this dress, like she is ready to have a good time at this event. Usually I get a duty vibe from her, but not on this occasion.

She completed her look with Roger Vivier shoes and clutch.

“Good to Great Hair” Book Launch, LA

Debra Messing has recently gone through a stylist switch, after Rachel Zoe wasn’t doing her justice. Saying that I’m not sure this Bottega Veneta Spring 2009 leather belted dress is doing her any favours either.

I think the square cut neckline makes her appear broader than she is, as do those extra pieces of leather on each side.

Something more streamlined, would have suited Debra much better.

Salma Hayek’s choices continue to go downhill. The gypsy skirt is so wrong for her.

Taraji P. Henson was the first to wear this Black Halo ruffle sleeved dress when she attended the Eagle Eye premiere last September.

The Oscar nominated actress accessorized with a gold bracelet, a black clutch and nude pumps.

Debra Messing wore a blue version of this Black Halo dress, when she attended the Avakian Beverly Hills Boutique Celebration in December.

She completed her look with a gold necklace, a gold box clutch, and a pair of multi-coloured Brian Atwood Marielle satin pumps.

Lisa Rinna followed Debra a few days later, wearing the same dress to the release party of her DVD, Dance Body Beautiful.

She wore her dress with a matching blue bracelet, and gold slingback peep-toes.

Britney Spears wore the same dress in black, when she attended her brothers wedding on New Year’s Eve with black pumps.

On Wednesday Aubrey O’Day was spotted in Atlantic City wearing the same dress in blue, whilst posing for the paparazzi inside The Pool nightclub at Harrah’s.

Taraji’s nude pumps help her win this for me.


This Black Halo keyhole ruffle sleeve sheath dress can be purchase in many colours.

Black from Saks.com ($345), purple from Tobi.com ($345) and Grey from Revolve Clothing (£238.41/$345.00).

Debra Messing was the host of the 11th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards in LA last week.

The ceremony paid tribute to the unsung heroes of Hollywood – the costume designers.

The actress made an impressive 4 costume changes including Dolce & Gabbana and Giambattista Valli and two couture gowns by Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad.

I personally love her in the Dolce & Gabbbana gown.

I think Kate Bosworth looks absolutely outstanding in this Alexander McQueen Resort 2009 dress. One of the best looks of the party night.

I love that it is sleeveless, unlike the runway version, and I like that her hair is unfussy.

Madonna arrived wearing a Christian Dior Spring 2009 dress, which was unsurprisingly sheer in places.

Taraji P. Henson did a quick change from the show. Her second pick was this Nina Ricci Spring 2009 peachy gown with ruffled details, and a rise & fall hem.

YIKES, was the first thing I said when I saw Zoe Saldana in this Dolce & Gabbana gown. The animal print is too ‘in your face’.

Speaking of YIKES. Alicia Keys changed the dress, but didn’t change the hair and make-up which has been an issue with me and many of you.

This canary yellow asymmetrical gown is gorgeous. Such a shame about rest.

Zooey Deschanel – Katy Perry’s could be twin – arrived looks cute as always wearing a stunning silver sequined Elie Saab dress.

I think it’s a first that she is not wearing tights on the red carpet.

Cat Deeley wears a one-shouldered Matthew Williams Fall 2008 gown, that has already been worn by Mischa Barton.

The gorgeous Georgina Chapman wore a gold embroidered self designed dress from her Marchsea Spring 2009 collection.

I love the swirling pattern on the skirt of Ginnifer Goodwin’s dress, but not so crazy about the bodice. This is a great colour on her though.

Being in the front row of a fashion show pays off for actresses, as Jessica Stroup was wearing a Pamella Roland Spring 2009 plunging black and white sequined gown, after she attended Pamella Roland’s Fall 2009 show last week.

The actress dazzled in Jude Frances jewelry.

There are a few things I hated last night. Jessica Biel’s hair, Beyonce’s dress. Now I can add Salma Hayek’s Balenciaga dress.

It looks so unflattering on her, and the tired old YSL Trib Two’s and the tights don’t help her cause either.

I will guess Marion Cotillard didn’t want people stepping on the train of her Dior gown, so she slipped into this violet strapless cocktail Elie Saab Fall 2008 dress for this party.

Marisa Tomei did the same, but I really dislike the colour blocking on this Juan Carlos Obando Spring 2009 gown.

Like last year’s Vanity Fair party, Ziyi Zhang wore Armani Privé.

Her nude cocktail Armani Privé Fall 2008 dress had a stunning embellished bodice, and a soft silk chiffon layered skirt.

Jada Pinkett-Smith wore a Roberto Cavalli Resort 2009 one-sleeved gown, which had a crystal embellished detail on the waist.

Daniel Craig’s partner Satsuki Mitchell, wore a watermelon Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 Couture one shouldered gown.

Kate Beckinsale wore a J.Mendel Fall 2009 asymmetrical black gown, which she decorated with a silver brooch.

This is a very subdued look for Kate, who usually loves big gowns.

Rachel Weisz wore one of the finale dresses from the Narciso Rodriguez Fall 2009 collection.

I wasn’t particularly crazy about this dress then, and even less enthused about it now.

The heels are fierce though.

Elizabeth Banks wore this black flapper-esqe Roberto Cavalli Resort 2009 cocktail dress.

This dress was presented in ivory, and I think this would have been a better choice for Elizabeth.

Her look is complete with Sergio Rossi shoes and a Swarovski clutch.

Yay. Now the parties start.

Debra Messing makes up for her earlier disappointment, by wearing this nude sleeveless Jenny Packham Fall 2008 gown with emerald green embellishments.

I have always loved this gown, and I am glad Debra wore it well.

Instead wearing her own expected L.A.M.B. designs, Gwen Stefani wore a black Chanel Fall 2008 Couture cocktail dress, with interesting detail on the bodice.

I really dislike this collection, so kudos to Gwen for making this work.

Good to see her back on the red carpet.

This has to be one of the first times I have really dislike something worn by Naomi Watts.

Diane von Furstenberg is of course wearing her own designs. The lavender sequined dress, with beaded details is from her Spring 2009 collection.

Carolina Herrera was of course wearing her own design from her Spring 2009 collection.

Jessica Biel tries to redeem herself wearing a fuschia Oscar de la Renta Fall 2009 gown, but still fails with her greasy hair.

Rosario Dawson out does her wearing a strapless white satin Dolce & Gabbana gown with an black embellished belt.

Jessica Alba, like Heidi Klum, wore a RM by Roland Mouret Resort 2009 black gown, with an asymmetrical hem, and a overshot shoulder, which was folded down, to reveal the ivory lining.
