Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Best Dressed Award
It’s been a long while since I was wowed by Fergie, but the singer did just that at the AMAs last night.

The singer walked the red carpet wearing an Armani Privé Fall 2009 black gown with asymmetrical zipper detailing which leads to a dramatic front slit.

The gown sparkles with thousands of black triangular paillettes and is embellished with tiny Swarovski crystals.

Fergie’s gown is slightly modified from the runway as the neckline differs plus Fergie’s gown has straps.

Black Louboutin’s plus a bracelet, armlet and large ring complete this stunning look.

Best Mini Dress Award
Alicia Keys has been a longtime friend of Giorgio Armani, so it’s not a surprise to see the singer wearing one of his stunning designs.

Her modified Giorgio Armani Spring 2010 cobalt blue, jewel encrusted strapless dress had an origami pleated detail on the bust which is more dramatic than the runway version.

I’m loving the aqua marine shades of blue, and the cute Swarovski crystal embellished shorts she wore under her dress.

She picked a fun piece from this collection that truly embodied the spirit of the AMAs.

Most Dramatic Award
Whilst most below were picking out cute nude dresses, Rihanna opted for a dramatic black and white floral laser cut Marchesa Spring 2010 strapless gown.

I loved this gown and it needed a strong personality to pull it off, and Rihanna did in my opinion.

I will guess a lot of you will hate this look, but she gets a thumbs up from me even with those white shoes.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Hair Award
Shakira seems to be developing a healthy obsession with Versace, as this is her 3rd Versace red carpet look in a row.

This sexy Versace Spring 2010 ultra mini yellow dress with cut-out details was perfect for someone with tons of sex appeal like Shakira, but I couldn’t help but feel that they ran out of time to style her hair.

It felt a bit flat against her stunning dress which she paired with the Spring 2010 runway heels.

Looks Way Better On The Red Carpet Award
This Christian Cota Spring 2010 ivory dress could have gone oh so wrong on Kristen Bell had she worn it as it was presented on the runway.

She only pulled up the skirt a few inches and removed the chains, but it makes a world of difference.

Silver Christian Louboutin Archidisco T-strap sandals and a Judith Leiber clutch completed this cute look.

Inspired By Taylor Swift Award
Had Taylor Swift been at this event, this silver Talbot Runhof Spring 2010 mini dress is what we would’ve expected her to wear.

Selena Gomez is sparkling both via her dress and her winning smile wearing her dress with Rock & Republic’s “Romy” strappy sandals embellished with chain detail.

I’m really loving this look as Selena tends to dress way too mature and boring for her young age.

Toned Down Bling Award
Like Taylor, Carrie Underwood used to have an obsession with over embellished dresses.

On this occasion she looked beautiful wearing a metallic one-shouldered Theia dress paired with amazing gold strappy sandals.

Nude Award
From the nude make-up, to the nude dress and the nude Guiseppe Zanotti heels, Demi Lovato needed something to inject a bit of life into her look.

Luckily her Jenny Packham Spring 2010 dress has a jeweled detail on the neckline to stop this look from being so boring and totally washing her out.

Va Va Voom Award
No matter was Sofia Vergara wears she’s going to look sexy.

Even if she was wearing a bin liner.

Whilst most opted for Music Award standard mini dresses, Sofia wowed in a nude Emilio Pucci one-shoulder gown which no doubt would’ve had men going weak at the knees.

Kate Beckinsale Will Be Green With Envy Award
It seems that since Paula Abdul left ‘American Idol’ that she’s had a style transformation.

Gone are those tacky costumey dresses, and in comes this stunning strapless lace mermaid hem gown.

The gown was so grand she need 2 people to help her walk down the red carpet.

I can’t remember the last time she looked this amazing.

Out Of Place Award
I love the delicate lace details on Nicole Kidman’s Balenciaga one-shoulder gown.

The pink and grey colours are gorgeous on her, but she always looks so out of place at these music events.

Worst Dressed Award
As much as I should be loving Kelly Clarkson’s dress based on the amount of embellishments are covering her dress, it fails to flatter her.

Needs To Check Out Style.com Award
Can someone please introduce Leona Lewis to Style.com.

She needs to be made aware that there are other designers out there than just Vivienne Westwood.

Yes she makes great designs, but Leona is only picking pieces that look exactly the same and it’s getting incredibly boring now.

I’ll lose it if I have to refer to those clunky ankle boots and that corset belt, so I’m going to pass.

What’s Happening? Award
Keri Hilson used to be so interesting to watch on the red carpet, but her look has started to become boring and stale.

I hope she gets back to her best soon, because she can do better than a LBD.

Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato have to be the cutest drama free teens in Hollywood.

Both of them looked so cute at the “Princess Protection Program” Toronto Premiere that I’m hoping I can find room for them on the Best Dressed list this week.

I loving Selena sleek new hair style and she looked adorable wearing a white silk organza Tadashi Shoji Fall 2009 one-shoulder dress with a poufy detail.

Her look was completed with silver Stuart Weitzman peep-toes, and a collection of Stephen Webster shattered mother-of-pearl bracelet.

Demi Lovato wore the nude and black silk-blend strapless structured Alexander Wang corset dress with a netted overlay on skirt, which has recently worn by both Rihanna and Paris Hilton.

Normally I would frown at re-run which she must have known about, but she looks so incredibly cute in her dress so I can’t begrudge her. She made a great choice as the colour is gorgeous against her skin tone.

Her look is completed with YSL Trib Two’s and a silver necklace which I think she could have gone without.

Normally there is always something I dislike about what Miley Cyrus wears, but on this occasion I can’t hate. I think it’s the right mix of her being stylish, young and fun. Something I don’t think I’ve ever said about her look before.

I’ll let you decided on the age appropriateness of this look, but for me it’s not too cheesy, she’s not 16 going on 30, and the leather jacket adds a bit of youth to her fringed teal Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 dress, with a fringed rope belt.

Oh Taylor, please rub off some of that tremendous style and grace you possess, to your BFF.

Taylor Swift stamps her claim for a a spot on the Best Dressed list, by arriving at the premiere looking outstanding in a black beaded strapless Naeem Khan Fall 2009 dress.

She completed her stunning look with Christian Louboutin Bow T Dorcet heels, and a black Mary Norton clutch.

It was Miley’s night, but Taylor stole her crown.

Emily Osment’s Faviana black one shoulder dress, has a floral embellishment which cascades down the front of her dress and across the bodice.

I do like the dress, as I’m impressed she carried off all that detail, but I really don’t think the shoes are a good fit.

Demi Lovato gets the prize for being the worst dressed at this event. The skirt of that dress looks like ringlets.

How very bizarre. Plus the make-up is not working for me either.

Vanessa Williams never lets me down. She wears another burst of colour on the red carpet with this sunshine yellow ribbed sheath dress.

Her turquoise necklace, nude heels and multi-coloured Carlos Falchi clutch complete the look.

Melora Hardin wore a spring chic Rafael Cennamo white v-front dress. The dress, which she wore with purple peep-toes, was embellished with a light blue floral belt.

She completed her look with an ostrich feathered Mary Norton bag with gold chain strap.

Teri Hatcher goes casual wearing a gorgeous pearl embellished tank with dark wash jeans.

Here is the Best and the Worst from the orange carpet, at the 2009 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.

Despite Ashley Tisdale giving us a re-run in this navy strapless Akiko Ogawa Fall 2008 embellished dress – previously worn by Hayden Panettiere – I still think she was the Best Dressed at this event.

I love everything about this look. She really made an effort, and I love how she keeps her look young, by wearing booties and not the expect Louboutin’s peep-toes.

Victoria Justice is a cute as ever, wearing a Alice + Olivia Cotton sateen rolled sleeve blazer, over her purple satin dress. She gives her look a slight edge by wearing a Streets Ahead studded belt.

Victoria completes her look with a pair of Modern Vintage Evanise ankle booties, and a large silver clutch.

Demi Lovato wore a gold bustier Ina Soltani dress, with black YSL Tribute sandals.

I love how this dress shimmers.

Miranda Cosgrove understands how to dress for this occasion, wearing a cute black 3/4 length sleeved Sonia Rykiel dress, with white hearts embellished with diamante’s.

I love the cute hair accessory.

She always has fun on the red carpet, dresses her age, and doesn’t take herself too seriously. Love her spirit.

Miley Cyrus’ Sheri Bodell gown is gorgeous, with its tiers and delicate ruffles, but it feels slightly grown up for an occasion which slimes its guests.

This is the Kids Choice Awards, Miley should have had fun wearing something young and hip.

Actress Keke Palmer matches her eyeshadow and nail polish to her eggplant Elise Øverland leather mini dress.

Love the earrings.

Brenda Song is so cute, I just want to keep her in my pocket.

The tiny cutie wore a gorgeous yellow satin dress, with intricate embroidered and studded embellishments fanning over the top half of her dress.

I love the silver belt, which compliments her dress perfectly.

Nice booties, shame about Emma Roberts’ lace blood red strapless dress. Eek.

Cameron Diaz is a regular at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards.

She kept her look casual, yet still chic, wearing a navy and red polka dotted Micheal Kors sleeveless top, with distressed ripped 7 For All Mankind jeans.

They say supermodels can wear anything and still look good, but for Amber Valetta this gorgeous Preen Fall 2009 geometric print tunic comes off looking very maternity.

America Ferrera looked quite chic, wearing a ruched red J.Mendel dress, with batwing sleeves.

This dress was incredibly flattering on her.

Not quite sure what happened to Megan Fox here. I appreciate she dialed down the sexy for a kids awards show, but that shouldn’t be an excuse to dress like this.

Tori Spelling looks looks surprisingly good in her maxi floral dress. This is indeed a rarity.

“Streak” Screening, Miami

We had fabulous weather this weekend, and again today in London. Demi Moore’s dress keeps that Spring-time feeling going wearing a fabulous bright yellow sleeveless dress.

She’s still a fresh faced and gorgeous as ever.

“Broken Embraces” Madrid Photocall

Penelope Cruz in wore a tomato red Versace Pre-Fall 2009 long sleeved dress, that is passable for a photocall, what I loved were her Christian Louboutin heels.

What’s the big deal? It’s the detail on the heels. The gold plated heel is carved with an interesting design.

Burberry And GQ Celebrate Burberry The Beat For Men, LA

Liv Tyler wears a sheer dress/camisole under a camel cardigan of almost the same length.

Wearing a feathered headband, Mischa Barton opts for a tame rocker look.

Her black leather pants, and Temperley London leather jacket, is contrasted by wearing a very feminine silk ivory and black Temperley London Spring 2009 blouse.

Her black and white heels are by Charlotte Olympia.

Russell Simmons Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation Art For Life, Miami

Kim Kardashian continues to shrub up nicely wearing a beautiful petrol blue strapless Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 gown.

Debut Of The Witches Fall 2009 Collection

When I first saw Mischa Barton in this dress with the strappy back detail, it instantly reminded me of the black Narciso Rodriguez dress Charlize Theron wore on Letterman last year.

Unfortunately, this look is ruined by the tights and shoes. Why dare to go nearly backless, if you aren’t going to show off your legs?

Launch Of Carrera Vintage Sunglasses

Taylor Momsen continues to baffle me. Her look doesn’t suit her at all. She needs to have serious words with her stylist, because this wannabee Debbie Harry look is comical.

I missed the days when teen stars were wholesome and looked their age.

Demi Lovato wowed the crowds wearing a black Shoshanna strapless dress with studded peep-toe booties.

This isn’t any old plain LBD, because of the ruching at bust and ruffled detail on the front.

A very cute look for the young actress.

Dania Ramirez wasn’t about to be upstage by a bunch of teen actresses, so she made sure she stood out wearing a orange and white graphic print Jay Godfrey halter-neck maxi dress.

Very tropical.

Jordan Pruitt is a perfect pink princess wearing a Betsey Johnson Teen Vogue strapless dress, with shimmering silver pumps.

The dress is cinched in at the waist, and accented with sash, then the A-line skirt flares to create the perfectly pretty silhouette.

This look is so girlie, I love it.

For the second time in a row, I am surprised at Jordin Sparks’ toned down look.

Where are the cute mini dresses and the bright colours?

Emily Osment is wearing a gorgeous cream and black BCBG Max Azria embellished silk chiffon babydoll dress.

I love embellished bodice, the flowing chiffon skirt and black ribbon tied around the empire-waist.

Meaghan Jette Martin opted for this striped and polka dotted Betsey Johnson Spring 2008 mini dress, with sequins all over.

The dress is cute, but the shoes are fierce.

Tiffany Giardina was also cute in pink, wearing a ruffle neck dress, accented with a black waist band.

She completed her look with a silver clutch, and a black jeweled headband.

Leven Rambin opted for a teal silk pocketed shift dress.
