Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Escada Spring 2010 Presentation Berlin Fashion Week, Germany

Diane Kruger was back in her native country to attend the Escada Spring 2010 presentation.

The back drop and red carpet were both pink but in her stunning pink dress with a gathered detail on the hip, Diane still stands out.

Her dress was paired with nude strappy sandals and a silver clutch for an utterly feminine look.

Anja Gockel Spring 2010 Presentation Berlin Fashion Week, Germany

Earlier in the day Diane attended the Anja Gockel Spring 2010 presentation.

The actress dressed super causal but still managed to look incredibly chic mixing boho with utilitarian chic wearing a simple ivory crochet top with khaki cargo shorts.

Who would have thought cargo shorts could looks so sexy?

Tan sandals and a matching satchel complete the look.

Henley-on-Thames Royal Regatta, Oxfordshire

Regular readers will know I’m not a fan of Daisy Lowe and her “model” status, but I must admit I do like this cute look.

We’ve seen many white dresses on the red carpet during this summer season, so it’s no surprise Daisy’s picked this Christopher Kane scallop edge dress for this event.

She predictably gives her look an edgy with a leopard-print coat, plus a playful straw hat, oversized shades and nude Mary-Janes.

Naven And Boulee Fashion Event, LA

I adore Khloe Kardashian’s Naven skinny mini skirt. Mostly because of the colour, but also because of the way it gives her such a tiny defined waist.

She wears her skirt with a Boulee Resort 2009 bustier and Giuseppe Zanotti open-toe booties.

This has to be one of Khloe’s best looks.

10 Years Younger Live Photocall, London

Myleene Klass is back from the jungle where she was presenting the US version of “I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.”

The presenter seems to have had some free time to sunbathe, as she is glowing with her golden tan which has brought out cut freckles on her nose.

Her tan is executed more wearing this green satin Banana Republic dress with a black patent belt.  Trib Two’s and a large silver flower ring complete the look.

BOSS Orange Spring 2010 Presentation – Berlin Fashion Week, Germany

Like Diane, Sienna Miller dressed to attend this show, but she is looks quite elegant plus she’s has a dewy natural glow.

I don’t think I have ever she her hair look so straight. She normally always has that just got out of bed scruffy look going on.

She wore pegged jeans and navy top teamed with super-cute grey heels.  The look just oozes easy breezy summer chic.

Variety Club Children’s Charity Party, London

We didn’t see Rachel Stevens on the red carpet for years, now she seems to be at every London event.

These Preen Power bandage dresses don’t seem to go out of style. They’ve been created in every colour under that rainbow and they’re still going strong.

Rachel paired her grey dress with a sleek black clutch and blue peep-toe shoe-boots.

“The Proposal” Germany Premiere

Sandra Bullock wore a loose taupe Halston wrap dress with an asymmetrical hem. Her dress is paired with a brown studded belt and Christian Louboutin ankle boots.

Not my favourite of all her looks as I wish to see a more vibrant colour on her.

Versace & Whitney Art Party with Starlight Foundation, New York

Donatella Versace attended this event wearing a black sheath dress with a aqua swoosh going across the bodice.

At first I thought it was a Jil Sander Fall 2009 dress, but Donatella surely only wears what she creates so I would guess she has taken a leaf out of Stella McCartney’s book and maybe giving us a preview for her upcoming collections.

We’ll have to wait and see.

The reason Rihanna was all dressed up in Gareth Pugh this week, was because she was headed to Allegra Versace’s 23rd birthday party at the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York.

Allegra wore a neon pink Versace Fall 2009 long-sleeved dress with a shimmering nude clutch, and nude suede heels.

You’ll notice that much like her mother’s Versace pieces Allegra dress is slightly modified.

The silver detail on the waist of the runway version is replaced with a pink satin panel.

Donatella obviously past down her wisdom of modifying pieces to her daughter, as the designer does this with every piece she wears.

In this case she has modified this stunning white zipper strapless Spring 2009 dress into a one-shoulder dress.  A tiny change yes, but one that makes her stand out from everyone else who owns this dress.

The designer completes her look with a pair of slate grey platform heels from her own Fall 2009 collection.

Donatella Versace always looks outstanding. She oozes sexy glamour which is modern mixed with 80s charm.

What I love about her most is the way she adapts looks from the runway to suit her own unique style. You will never see her in a runway look.  But then I believed that Jennifer Aniston would never wow me, and we all know how that turned out.

At a Grazia Party held at Villa Necchi last week in Milan the designer wore this gold one-shouldered dress from her Spring 2009 collection.

Nearly all the elements of the runway look featured in her dress: the colour, the one-shoulder detail and the asymmetrical bodice, but her dress has a pencil skirt whilst the runway version has a bell-shaped skirt. 

Yes it’s a very small detail, but a detail that makes this look simply and exclusively Donatella’s.

Tres chic.

Creating a sensation at the charity benefit, Diane Kruger looked outstanding in a white Chanel Spring 2009 Couture ensemble.

For me it doesn’t have the same impact as her Marchesa gown which made my heart melt, but she still looks amazing.

I love the square shouldered cropped jacket, the cute black bow – which we know she loves – and the interesting shaped skirt, which reveals a lace lining.

A bejeweled clutch and Louboutin’s complete the look.

With so many great dresses this week, would it be fair to include both Diane’s looks in Best Dressed of the Week?

Only Dita von Teese can get away with wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2009 Couture dress, with a transparent skirt revealing her garter.

That’s because she oozes class and chic sophistication.

I’m much more inspired by her in this dress than her previous Dior Couture dress.

I love Marion Cotillard, and her association with Dior is a match made in heaven but I would have loved something more dramatic from her.

Her pale blue Christian Dior Fall 2009 embroidered gown is gorgeous, as it brightens up her complexion.

You know saying, “Take one thing off before you leave the house”?

Well Paris Hilton should have taken off 3.

The headband, the necklace and the bracelet.

Her Basil Soda Spring 2009 Couture gown is already dripping with embellishments around the waist, that she needn’t have over cooked it.

This gown is quite dark and dramatic for Paris. I’m surprised she didn’t pick something more sugary.

Donatella Versace’s modification on her Versace Fall 2009 cornflower blue gown are very subtle.

I prefer her softer blue strapless gown.

The bodice is longer plus her gown has a fuller skirt.

I’m a constant admirer of how immaculate she always looks.

Michelle Yeoh opted for a purple satin Atelier Versace Fall 2008 gown with ruffled details on the shoulders and an open back.

She kept her jewelery minimal, with a few diamonds on the bracelet and earrings.

All my diva’s are going red.

First Coco Rocha, now Eva Green.

Is red the new black?

I’ve love Eva since she first stepped on the red carpet. She’s such a daredevil when it come to fashion. But on this occasion not so much.

Don’t get me wrong, I love her fuschia pink Christian Dior Fall 2009 Indian inspired gown with intricate embroidered details, but if ever their was someone to wear one of Dior’s Spring 2009 Couture ball gowns on the red carpet, this was our girl.

Elsa Pataky’s Armani Prive Fall 2008 black and white striped strapless gown may look a bit tame from the front, but that’s because all the drama is at the back, as it gathers then falls to a fishtail hem.

There would have been no prizes for guessing that Eva Herzigova would wear Dolce & Gabbana to this event. Much like her supermodel chum Claudia Schiffer.

Her Spring 2009 corseted red dress, had more sass than the runway version.

Hers was strapless and shorter to show off those impossibly long legs.

As much as Lily Cole is wearing a beautiful Emilio Pucci Fall 2009 strapless gown, she fails to excite.

Many of you have remarked that you would love for Georgina Chapman to modify her gowns, to make herself more individual, and stand out from the runway and her clients like Donatella Versace.

Unfortunately she didn’t hear your pleas on this occasion, because she wore a gold lame Marchesa Spring 2009 asymmetrical gown as it was presented on the runway plus the gold Louboutin’s.

Whatever the weather, she always looks outstanding, and here is no exception.

It feels strange calling anything by Chanel casual, but Anna Mouglalis’ blood red Chanel Cruise 2010 satin dress, feels too casual for such an event.

Kudos to her for wearing a piece from this collection, which was only presented last Thursday.

Margherita Missoni represented her family brand in the way she always does, with style and grace.

Her lurex silvery blue Missoni Spring 2009 gown, with a gold waistband, is a modification of the strapless jumpsuit which was presented on the runway.

Her added gold jewelery, and a matching mini clutch were the perfect touches for added glamour.

L’Oreal girl Kerry Washington takes the baton for the final leg of Cannes Film Festival, after Elizabeth Banks, Aishwarya Rai, Eva Longoria, and Evangeline Lilly represented the brand before her.

Kerry is a vision, as always wearing a strapless deco beaded Marchesa gown paired with a gold Bally box clutch.

Hayden Panettiere arrived at this event wearing a gorgeous blush silk chiffon Marchesa dress with similar silver embroidered details to Diane Kruger’s Marchesa gown.

I love the dress, but even in this picture it feels like the falling train is in the way.

Prior to this event you would have seen Hayden sunbathing on a yacht, relaxing with friends and topping up her tan.

Unfortunately it’s left unsightly tan lines.

I’m loving the vacation glow, but a hint of lippy would have worked wonders.

Zoe Saldana opted for a nude dress with a gathered detail on the hip, whilst she paired her look with copper accessories.

Sharon Stone has never looked better, but next time she should consider tanning her legs, before opting for a thigh high split. Her arm appears to be a different shade to her legs.

Despite all that the annual host for this event look magnificent wearing an asymmetrical Dior gown, with silver strappy Dior heels.

Claudia Schiffer stays faithful to her boys Dolce & Gabbana, wearing this tulle black bustier gown.

You’ll be happy to see that she’s keeping the bangs for now.

Zhang Ziyi’s ethereal nude gown is so delicious on her. The colour is exquisite complimenting her skin tone.

Her hair was pulled back off her face to reveal a long earring, and a diamond stud. How very 80s Janet Jackson.

I’m not quite getting the wow factor from Carine Roitfeld, which I got last year, but she still looks fantastic wearing this white Givenchy Couture gown.

I’m wondering has anyone ever seen her with her hair up?

Rinko Kikuchi wears a grey ruffled Chanel Fall 2008 Couture dress with really heavy clunky heels.

Shu Qi wears my least favourite gown of her Cannes experience.

All good runs come to a crashing end.

Case in point Robin Wright Penn in this charcoal spaghetti strapped gown.

Donatella Versace looked sensational wearing her own slightly modified Atelier Versace Spring 2009 nude paillette covered gown, to the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner nearly two weeks ago.

Her gown didn’t have the same cut-out detail as the presented gown, which Eva Herzigova wore to the Looking For Eric premiere during Cannes Film Festival.

Eva’s make-up was to heavy, plus the fuschia peep-toes don’t work for me, so Donatella wins this.
