Red Carpet Fashion Awards

January Jones was by far the best dressed at this event. I love this girl, she is fearless on the red carpet, and never plays it safe.

The actress wore a strapless pink beaded Elie Saab Fall 2008 Couture dress, which was not only a great fit, but was also a fantastic colour for her.

She matched her make-up to her dress, and her silver Jimmy Choo peep-toes to her jewelry, in what has to be one of her best looks.

Definitely up for Best Dressed this week.

The gorgeous Freida Pinto looked superb wearing a nude draped Donna Karan Resort 2009 gown, with a gold sparkling Leiber clutch.

Her make-up was flawless.

Taraji P. Henson is very much one to take notice of, as she has been making a lot of great choices on the red carpet lately.

For this event she wore a gorgeous black and white print Angel Sanchez Spring 2009 dress which had a large black sash folded across the front of her dress.

She wore black pumps with it and a red satin clutch to complete her look.

The forever elegant Laura Linney wore a black one-shouldered Michael Kors belted dress.

She completed the look with black strappy sandals, and gold accessories.

I was not at all enamored by Natalie Portman’s look.

She wore a semi-transparent blue dress with a pink sash tied to the waist, with black heels and a bronze clutch.

I remember a time when Catherine Zeta-Jones used to wow me every time she stepped onto the red carpet. Now she just kinda blends in with everyone else.

The Welsh actress joined her hubby Michael Douglas on the red carpet wearing a Monique Lhuillier one-shouldered draped dress, and gold t-bar Sergio Rossi heels.

Debra Messing this time kept things simple wearing a black longs sleeved dress which had a bow detail on the front and embellished cuffs.

She continued the simple look with black patent pumps.

Worst Dressed Award
Debra Messing disappoints me again in a very unflattering Vera Wang gown.

Worst Hair Award
Renee Zellweger walked the red carpet wearing a Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2009 gown, which was modified the runway.

I must admit I love the dress. It’s the poodle hair I just can’t get on board with.

Best Rachel Zoe Impersonation Award
Rachel Zoe cloned Nicole Richie, Lindsay Lohan and Mischa Barton. All starlets desperate for attention and fame.

So when I look at Cameron Diaz, I ask WFT happened? She used to have such an athletic body and now she had become a Zobot, with lollypop head, and over-tanned skin.

I am nothing but disturbed by this new look, which is only extenuated in her pink Chanel Fall 2008 Couture asymmetrical gown.

To make matters worst her hair is horrific. Going to the Globes you would have thought Cameron would have had her roots done.

I’m crying inside, crying I tell you.

No Class/Most Obnoxious On The Red Carpet Award
Miley Cyrus was by far the most annoying person to walk the red carpet last night. She was loud and rude. And the worst thing is her parents seemed to be encouraging her.

She was sticking her tongue out, giving the peace sign proving what I always thought. This girl has no class.

Her Marchesa Spring 2009 strapless gown with gold embroidery detail was beyond boring.

Worst Throw Back Award
JLo turned up last night instead of Jennifer Lopez.

Jennifer in this dress takes me back to the time when she was dating Puff Daddy, and wearing ghetto gold, embellished head bands and low cut dresses, like this gold Marchesa Spring 2009 gown.

Biggest Let Down Award
I know many of you will not agree, but I just hate those extra pieces of material on Eva Mendes’ white Dior gown. It does not seem to serve a purpose. It’s not a bow, it’s not a doing anything but just hanging there.

I love everything else, so it kills me to put her on this list.

Worst Couture Award
Freida Pinto made this Christian Lacroix Fall 2008 Couture gown look very ordinary. It looked so magical on the runway.

She completed her look with a Judith Leiber clutch.

Too Casual Award
I really love this Oscar de la Renta Spring 2009 look on Marisa Tomei, but for me it’s too casual for an event like this.

Worst Gold Award
Megan Fox moaned the whole way through her E! interview about how she looked like a tranny. Obviously fishing for compliments, to boost her already over inflated ego.

For me she really cheapens this Ralph Lauren Spring 2009 gown.

Most Boring Award
Penelope Cruz really seems to have lost her sparkle, even in this Armani Prive gown. There is nothing exciting, nor interesting for me to wow about.

Just Don’t Care Anymore Award
Yes it is an improvement on last year horror show, but I just don’t really care about Blake Lively anymore.

The actress wore a steel blue Nina Ricci gown, that a year ago would have got me excited.

Played It Too Safe Award
Yes Amy Adams always plays it safe, but instead of this Oscar de la Renta Spring 2009 gown, which is very typical of her style. It would be nice to see something unexpected, with more of a wow factor.

Worst Dressed Award
I would wear this dress to work or to an interview, in fact I think I have a dress just like this. So I’m surprised Jennie Garth, with access to a lot of dresses, would pick this one.

OK she does not have the keys to Carolina Herrera’s closet like Renee Zellweger, but she can do better than this, even with her D list status.

Most Disappointing Award
Debra Messing is one of my faves, so imagine my deep disappointment to see her take to the red carpet last night in this extremely unflattering Donna Karan dress.

The steel grey colour is not so bad, but the fit is, and so is that thing on the front of her dress.

Why Debra? Why?

Most Unlikely To Add This Dress My Wish List Award
This has to be the most boring dress I have ever seen Reese Witherspoon wear.

So dull, so lifeless, so unlike Reese. I hope she’s saving better dresses for bigger occasions.

Most Uninspiring Award
Apart from the leopard print lining of her Dolce & Gabbana suit, I have no interest in what Katherine Heigl is wearing – although I do like the shoes.

For someone of her caliber, I would have expected more. Anne Hathaway looked so great in her suit this week, that this feels a bit copy-cat.

No Wow Factor Award
The colour was great, but I felt no wow factor from Chandra Wilson.

Worst Gown Award
There were a few gowns at this awards show last night, but Lisa Edelstein takes the prize for having the worst one.

Again it fails to flatter, and again I expected more.

Every morning when I am looking at the pictures of events from the previous night, I am always looking to say wow. I had two moment like that today, and the first was Nicole Kidman.

I am not sure you will all love the ice queen in her stunning spaghetti strapped L’Wren Scott Spring 2009 ice white gown, with jeweled detail on the empire-waist, but I absolutely adore her here.

She is so statuesque, regal even. I came imagine jaws were dropping all night.

Along with Ali Larter, Nicole is up for Best Dressed this week.

And if you think the front is amazing, look at the detail on the back.

Kate Bosworth did not opt for a stunning gown, but the affects are just the same.

Her black tuxedo-style Chanel dress with a white bib, was amazing and sophisticated enough for her stand on the same red carpet as Nicole Kidman.

I do not think there has ever been a time when I was not impressed with Natalie Portman.

She appears to be a quiet shy retiring type, but girlfriend knows how to master the red carpet, and she did so again, wearing a black Jolibe Fall 2008 dress with a sequined panel going down the front, and folds on the skirt.

She completed her look with a pair of pom pom shoes, which she also owns in purple.

There was a time when America Ferrera would wear nothing but black. Thank god those days appear to be over as the Ugly Betty actress took to the red carpet last night wearing a multi-coloured sleeved Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2008 embroidered dress.

Love the dress, not so crazy about the Amy Wino hair ‘do, which she has sported before.

Sarah Michelle Gellar opted against her bangs, which she sported last week in favour of a messy up ‘do.

Like many women at this event she opted for a white dress. This dress was by Vicente Villarin Spring 2009

The beaded detail on Selita Ebanks’ dress is the most interesting detail on her grey gown with a black overlay.

I love the way she constantly adapts her crop. I wish I had the guts to go for the chop.

What is up with young Hollywood?

Taylor Swift should be trying to give people like Natalie Portman a run for her money, but instead she opts for a long, plain, boring black gown.

Taylor is usually very impressive on the red carpet so I am a touch, sorry very disappointed in this effort.

When she rocks, she rocks, and Fergie rock it last night.

The singer arrived looking sweet and innocent wearing an amazing white Michael Kors gown, with a jeweled bodice. Can’t wait to see this girls wedding gown.

You may have noticed that Fergie has put on a bit of weight. The singer put on 13 pounds to play a character named Saraghina in the upcoming movie musical Nine.

Debra Messing is not often on the red carpet, and she rarely gets it wrong. On this occasion, I think she did, as this Ralph Lauren Fall 2008 dress does anything for her at all.

Despite it being just a black dress by Gucci, I do like it on Tyra Banks as for once she is toned down and not over the top.

This is not my favourite look for Jane Krakowski. I think it is her hair, because her strapless Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti satin bustier dress is a gorgeous berry colour.

Best Dressed Award

Amanda Bynes on her first major awards ceremony stood out from all the other veterans wearing this gorgeous Marchesa 2008 Resort strapless embellished gown.

Love the hair, but might have been better pulled back.

Joint Best Colour Award

This strapless cobalt blue L’Wren Scott Spring 2008 gown on Kyra Sedgwick was pure perfection.

Kyra has an amazing body, and this dress showed it off.

Joint Best Colour Award

These pictures do not do Vanessa Williams bright canary yellow Escada gown any justice. I was more even more vivid on TV.

Everything here is perfect, excluding her tan lines.

Best Over 50 Award

Glenn Close is stunning. Amazing for her 60 years.

I wish Meryl Streep would dress like this on the red carpet.

Risk That Paid Off Award

I know most of you probably hated this dress on Sandra Oh, but I loved it.

She took a risk by not choosing a major well known designer, but for me it works.

I loved the bow and the colours.

Most Fashion Forward Award

None of the other ladies on the red carpet would have dared to wear this sculpted Nina Ricci Spring 2008 strapless gown, and that is why I love Ellen Pompeo.

Best Embellishments Award

Debra Messing in Oscar de la Renta Spring 2008 stepped away from her usual black and her usual Michael Kors.

I loved the embellishments on the dress the first time I saw it on the runway, but I never picture Debra wearing it, but she does pull it off.

Best Haute Couture Award

Despite not going to any of the Haute Couture Fashion Shows at Paris Fashion Week last week, Christina still managed to get this Elie Saab Fall 2007 gown.

In typical Elie Saab fashion, the gown is embellished and uber glamourous.

Best Red Carpet Pose Award

No one can do that “sticking your ass out, while looking over your shoulder seductively pose” quite like Eva Longoria. So it was no wonder she chose a sexy Naeem Khan Spring 2008 backless dress to show of her derrière.

I am glad that there are no bangs in sight, and I see that Eva continues to favour the curly do for red carpet appearances.

Joint Best Black Award

Sans her fiance Michael Bolton, Nicollette Sheridan was stunning on the red carpet last night wearing a black strapless Marchesa gown.

This is by far the best I have ever seen her look.

Joint Best Black Award

Ana Oritz was smokin’ hot in this Pamela Dennis black body hugging gown.

Best Arm Candy Award

Keisha Whittaker looked so cute wearing this bubble gum pink Jenny Packham Spring 2008 sweetheart necklined gown.

She is always the perfect accessory for Forest Whittaker.

Most Improved Award

Brittany Snow has had a very inconsistent red carpet of late, but she looks great here in this Zuhair Murad sequined gown.

Best Pre-Fall 2008 Dress Award

Most Pre-Fall 2008 dresses are not usually red carpet ready, but Teri Hatcher looks divine in this floral Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2008 fishtailed gown.

I laughed when she was interviewed and she said that the did not believe in botox.

Best White Award

Becki Newton is back to her best wearing an Elsie Katz Couture white sequined dress.

I particularly love the tiered skirt.

Best Jewels Award

I loved Sara Ramirez’ jewels by H. Stern and Bo Chic. Her earrings were a perfect compliment to her satin strapless fuschia Angel Sanchez Spring 2008 gown.

Meh…Just OK Award

Ashely Tisdale stood up well on such a big stage wearing this white Badgley Mischka Spring 2008 dress.

Back To Her Best Award

Marion Cotillard looks beautifully chic in this corseted, pleated, and gathered Nina Ricci Spring 2008 gown.



Best Hair Award

Marcia Cross is wearing a Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2008 teal gown. I think the colour works well with her red hair.

Best Colour Block Award

Jamie-Lynn Sigler is wearing an ensemble from Calvin Klein. The teal skirt is from the Calvin Klein Pre-Fall 2008 collection.
