Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Many more supermodels joined Coco Rocha and Crystal Renn on the red carpet for the 9th Annual Spring Dinner Dance New Year’s In April: A Fool’s Fete, hosted by New Yorkers for Children, which raised over $580,000 last night.

Doutzen Kroes: The model was surprisingly one of the few who opted out of wearing a gown to don a Rachel Roy ensemble. A purple keyhole top with an open back and a black leather cummerbund was teamed with super long flared pants. An Alaia perforated leather clutch completed her look.

Jessica White: The Maybelline model did an ‘Angelina’ by making sure we all got a look at her leg via the split in her Diane von Furstenberg sequin wrap gown. She teamed her raspberry gown with a Diane von Furstenberg ‘Tonda’ crystal clutch and cream peep-toes.

Selita Ebanks: I’m really not feeling Selita in this silver embellished gown. It looks like something Mariah Carey would wear. Basically it feels dated. The red clutch does nothing to improve this look.

Erin Heatherton: The model is the third person to wear a Carolina Herrera dress in the last 24 hours following Emily Blunt and Ashley Judd. Her Spring 2012 canary yellow, greige and taupe dot print silk chiffon gown with silver and black beaded embroidery was simply styled with black strappy sandals. It’s so good to see a Victoria’s Secret model wearing something other than a bandage dress.

Late last year Doutzen Kroes attended her ‘Nova Zemba’ premiere in Amsterdam.

The stunning model/actress ensured all eyes were on her when she hit the red carpet wearing a Giambattisa Valli Fall 2011 Couture gown.

The spectacular black strapless gown with a corseted top featuring three grosgrain bows has a full skirt made of hundreds of layers of silk tulle.

This is quite a show-stopping piece.

Doutzen has wowed in Giambattista Valli before – you may remember back in May last year she wore a similarly dramatic red gown to the Met Gala.

Movie-star locks and a gorgeous smile perfect this stunning look.

Doutzen Kroes attended the private Missoni for Target launch party held in New York City last night.

The model and actress chose to wear a Stella McCartney panelled polka dot dress from the Fall 2011 collection.

Her sexy, revealing dress is one of the signature pieces from Stella McCartney’s collection.

The stretch dress features sheer sections with small polka dots.

It’s similar, but not the same as Kate Winslet’s Stella McCartney dress.

Doutzen added a nude slip underneath and accessorized with a pair of pointed-toe black velvet pumps.

She wore her hair up in a chic ponytail and completed her look with glowing, flawless makeup.

You have to make a bold decision to wear this look and whilst I don’t condone going commando, I hate the nude slip. It kills the look stone dead for me.

Actress Zoe Saldana was the first to wear this full-skirted grey Azzedine Alaia dress to the “Star Trek” London premiere at the Empire Leicester Square.

This sparkly dress was the perfect for choice for Zoe as it made her stand out on the red carpet.

She accessorized her dress with long dangling earrings, a bold cuff, and Azzedine Alaia lace-up booties.

Model Doutzen Kroes must have loved the look so much because duplicated the look from head-to-booties for the “Looking for Eric” during Cannes Film Festival.

Unfortunately for Doutzen the dress makes her appear wider than she is, whereas it delicately skims Zoe’s hips.

Zoe totally owned this look, so she wins for me.

Best Dressed Award
Zoe Saldana continues to impress me. “Star Trek” has push her in the limelight, but her great choices in on the red carpet increase her star status.

Take this Calvin Klein Resort 2010 grey dress for example. It was plain and quite boring on the runway, but Zoe brings it to life.

She makes it sexy and sassy without much effort.

Did It Hurt When You Fell From Heaven? Award
*Sighs*

Could Anja Rubik be anymore beautiful? Anja and Halle Berry should be allow to walk amongst us normal folk.

The stunning supermodel arriving looking angelic wearing a white Kaufman Franco Fall 2009 one-shouldered gown.

She wore the gown without it’s ruffled detail on the behind, which showed how dangerously low the dress was cut.

On some Megan Fox this would have been deemed trashy, but on Anja *sighs* just damn sexy.

Best Use of Colour Award
There’s always a 50/50 split when it comes to Blake Lively.

I hope when you see her looking drop dead gorgeous wearing this neon pink Michael Kors Fall 2009 strapless sheath dress, more of you will be swayed to liking her.

Her twins aren’t on display, she looks youthful, vibrant and sexy.

What’s not to love?

Best Modification Award
Jason Wu really understood his muse for the night, as he took this sophisticated business-like runway dress and turned it into a sexy mini for Diane Kruger.

Diane would look great in a bin liner lets face it, but the colour, length, fabric and embellished embroidered shoulders really looks amazing on her.

I hate to be picky but I really wish she would change her hairstyle more often. I feel like we see this style a lot.

Model Magic Award
Many of you who loved the Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 collection were non to happy when Rihanna arrived at the Met Gala wearing a black suit from the collection.

Molly Sims should bring that enthusiasm back because she looked so cute and playful wearing a Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 strapless dress, with a Marilyn Monroe print emblazoned on it.

Risk That Paid Off Award
This is a rare red carpet outing for Kirsten Dunst.

The actress always opts for bold pieces which don’t always work, but on this occasion she looks amazing.

Rodarte is never a safe choice. The pieces are bold, edgy and dynamic plus you need the right kind of attitude to pull a Rodarte piece off.

She totally does with grey Nicholas Kirkwood heels.

Most Theatrical Award
At first I really disliked Doutzen Kroes in this red Zac Posen gown, mostly because I thought it was too grand for her. Plus I’m so used to seeing her in Herve Leger I didn’t quite think it was her style.

Then I realised how much better the dress looks without the gold belt, and appreciated the way she had made an effort to make the gown work for her.

Best Vintage Award
As much as I appreciate the Olsen twins picking interesting vintage pieces, I would love to see them in something off-the-runway more often.

Ashley Olsen wore an orange vintage gown with gold leaf embroidery around the shoulders. Her look was complete with Van Cleef & Arpels jewels and Versace heels.

Some might say it’s a little too big for her. I would say it’s better than a bandage dress.

Glorious Glow Award
Even if Heidi Klum wasn’t pregnant and wearing a silver crushed lame Michael Kors asymmetrical mini dress, she would still glow. So these added elements only make her more beautiful.

Her silver Christian Louboutin Anthracite Ole Ole heels and clutch matched her dress, but it’s her earrings I’m drooling over.

Best Black Award
Claire Danes is never one I can get excited about on the red carpet, but I do love her quiet elegant style. Some would call it boring, for me is very understated.

The actress looked elegant wearing a black Narciso Rodriguez embroidered black silk crepe gown which was cut low at the front and open at the back.

Best Legs Award
Model Hilary Rhoda arrived wearing a gorgeous one-shouldered Calvin Klein dress which showed off how incredibly long her pins are.

If you got it flaunt it honey.

Her look was completed with her hair pulled back in a tight bun and a VBH clutch.

Stepping Out Of Her Comfort Zone Award
Maggie Grace is usually very boring on the red carpet, so imagine my surprise to see her wearing this Christian Siriano Spring 2009 grey ruffled confection.

Every time I see a variation of this dress on the red carpet it’s belted.

It would be nice to see it without a belt if its worn again in the future, but the belt does work for Maggie here.

Best Accessories Award
Stylist Rachel Zoe arrived wearing a Louis Vuitton peachy gown, which I first thought was a Marc Jacobs gown as it resembles the finale gowns that were presented in the Spring 2009 collection, but her twitter message confirm that it’s Louis Vuitton.

Her golden accessories including a Louis Vuitton clutch, vintage Chanel earrings, plus Yossi Harari rings and bracelets.

Simple Yet Always Elegant Award
Kerry Washington has opted for a lot of bold choices lately wearing Louis Vuitton edgy ensembles, so it’s nice to see her bring her look back to a softer more elegant style we usually associate her with.

Last night she glowed wearing a silverly grey Doo.Ri Resort 2010 sleeveless gown with a plunging neckline.

Her jewels were also simple and she opted for a matching silver Swarovski clutch.

Best Embellishments Award
Whist Melissa George’s Nicole Miller gown has no shape, I am totally captivated by the embroidered crystals on her strapless gown.  Exquisite.

Black to Black Award
Yes I’m referring to Coco Rocha hair, which she debut on her blog a few weeks ago.

The supermodel wore an asymmetrical Michael Kors red Resort 2010 slide dress with a black print.

Her look was paired with a gold cuff, black strappy sandals and a matching clutch.

The Wow Moment Award
Comedian Tracey Ullman really shocked me when I saw her in this glorious red Doo.Ri gown with an asymmetrical neckline.

I don’t think I have ever seen her look so fabulous.

No BoHo Award
Finally Whitney Port has ditched that hippy chick look, for a fresh sophisticated look wearing a Luca Luca Fall 2009 halter gown.

The draped silver beaded gown sparkled so beautifully. She really out did herself here. I’m totally wowed by her
