Best Dressed Award
I was a bit underwhelmed by this red carpet until I saw Diane Kruger.
Ever since I attended the Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 Couture show in January last year I’ve been praying to see this gown on the red carpet.
Diane more than does this stunning pink ombre gown justice. The colour really pops on the soggy red carpet on a cold and rainy night in LA.
I love the sleek old Hollywood hairstyle. She was really out to impress.
Her white Raven Kauffman Couture clutch matched the pretty white bow on the side of her dress.
Most Predictable Award
There would’ve been no prizes for guessing that Marion Cotillard would wear Christian Dior.
Style.com even predicted that exact dress she would wear.
Being the face of ‘Lady Dior’ helps, plus when we see her in Dior we always get spectacular results.
Her petrol green satin asymmetrical Spring 2010 dress has a thigh-high split with a black négligée peeping through.
Jimmy Choo ‘Drake’ sandals and Chopard jewels complete her look.
Biggest Shock Award
Courteney Cox walked the red carpet last night wearing a black strapless dress from Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2010 collection.
Like most pieces from VB’s collection the dress was well structured and had a ‘top to hem’ zipper along the back.
I liked the jeweled detail on the empire waist, and the chic updo Courteney sported.
Normally I don’t care much for Courteney on the red carpet, but she really surprised me by how great she looked.
She carried a black Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch.
Her husband actor David Arquette dutifully kept her dry from the pouring rain.
Best Couture Award
This is definitely one of those ‘better on screen look’s. Unfortunately the picture isn’t doing Drew Barrymore any favours.
Her Atelier Versace Fall 2009 one shoulder champagne gown was stunning.
The nude corset was covered by a nude crystallized overlay, with two clusters of glass fringes on the shoulder and the hip.
Her hair was swept back as not to interfere with the details, as the actress wore Lorraine Schwartz jewels to complete her look.
It’s A Grower Award
I’ve been going back and forth with Julianne Moore.
I was just about to put her on the Worst Dressed list, when I decided that her Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2008 dress wasn’t as bad as I first thought. Mostly because she looks so elegant.
The grey colour initially put me off this silk bustier gown, but I really like the pleated lace detailed neckline and her green Bvlgari earrings were magnificent.
Black suede Balenciaga stingray sandals complete the look.
Beautiful, Even When Slightly Wet Award
Chloe Sevigny would’ve been the most worried about getting her rose Valentino sleeveless gown wet as it would’ve deflated those beautiful ruffles.
But she was lucky to have a someone to help shield her dress from the rain.
Buccellati jewels complete the look.
Va Va Voom ‘Jessica Rabbit’ Award
Christina Hendricks has the most amazing body, which she always dresses so well.
She leaves me breathless in this stunning Christian Siriano Spring 2010 gown which was custom-made to hug those delicious curves.
She carried a Christian Loubuotin ‘Kephron’ silver clutch and wore Loree Rodkin jewels. Read more…
