Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Elettra Wiedemann joined Zoe Saldana in the front row of Prabal Gurung’s Fall 2012 presentation during New York Fashion Week.

She teamed her Prabal Gurung violet paint-drip lame pants with a white Monika Chiang blazer and a white shirt.

Monika Chiang grey pumps and an Yves Saint Laurent ‘Cabas’ bag completed her look.

I adore this look from the ankles up. It’s so effortless and clean with the star item being the pants.

Elettra Wiedemann Rosselini was in Madrid, Spain last night to attend the Vanity Fair ‘Man of the Year 2011′ Awards.

She wore a YSL Spring 2011 strapless dress.

This is quite possibly the worst dress to hit the red carpet this year.

I’ll take Bryce Dallas Howard’s ‘I’m not pregnant’ Reem Acra dress over this flamenco-inspired look any day.

It’s too long, it’s too literal considering where she is, it’s too cheesy, the shoes work on the runway, but not on Elettra – and the belt looks like it’s suffocating her.

This should’ve been left as a runway piece.

American model/actress Elettra Rossellini Weidemann looked stunning as she arrived for the 2010 American Ballet Theatre Annual Spring Gala in New York last night.

I’m a huge fan of Toni Maticevski, so I was delighted to see her look so ethereal wearing a dress from his Fall 2010 collection.

I was really disappointed by how Abbie Cornish styled her Fall 2010 look recently, but this restores my faith that the collection is wearable off the runway.

The face of Lancôme rightly kept her make-up and accessories simple as the stunning detail on the bodice should be the focus of this look, but I just wish she’d done something different with her hair.

Mischa Barton had a blast during New York Fashion Week. She was front row a many shows, and she also enjoyed hanging out at some of the hippest parties.

One of those parties was the Marc Jacobs after-show-party held at Hiro in New York.

To that party she wore a black embellished Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 mini dress with lace sleeves and a studded wrap-around belt, plus tights and black flats.

Elettra Wiedemann wore the same dress a few day later when she arrived at “The Burning Plain” premiere at Landmark’s Sunshine Cinema in New York.

She wore a pair of sexy strappy sandals, which I preferred to Mischa’s flats.

As much as I want to give this to Elettra, I really don’t like the way the bottom half of the dress hangs down exposing the lace underlay, which as a result gives the look a maternity feel.

So once again I’m giving a win to Mischa by default.

Selma Blair wore a similar one-sleeved version of this dress to the Costume Institute Gala.

Selita Ebanks, Vice Chair of the New Yorkers for Children Gala looked amazing wearing a J. Mendel Spring 2010 citron draped gown.

I tend to associate Victoria’s Secret models with bod-con mini dress, but Selita temporarily blows that stereotype out of the water.

The model wore Slane & Slane jewelry and carried a Nancy Gonzalez clutch to complete her BDOTW worthy look.

It’s been a while since we have seen Joy Bryant on the red carpet, but during her time-out one this hasn’t changed.

Her love for Missoni.

At this event she wore a leaf print Missoni Fall 2009 stone silk dress with bold multi-coloured leaf print.

This is the perfect transitional look for fall.

Hilary Rhoda sparkled wearing a sterling silver ombre paillette halter Naeem Khan Spring 2009 dress with very deep plunge.

Matching strappy sandals and clutch complete this sexy look.

I wasn’t at all crazy about this Cavlin Klein Resort 2010 blue/grey off-the-shoulder dress when I saw it on the runway, but Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann injects a bit of personality and body into the dress to make it much more appealing.

Alina Cho wears a purple Oscar de la Renta pleated duchess satin gown which was my favourite from the Fall 2009 collection.

I was going to say I prefer the runway belt, but she is wearing the runway belt. The lighting makes them appear different.

Ines Rivero wears the same zebra print Naeem Khan Resort 2009 gown which Eva Longoria wore to Roselyn Sanchez wedding.

Mary J Blige wore a rose strapless crepe Gucci gown with bow detailing on the hip.

I love this colour on her, but as always the tattoos turn me off.

Her look was paired with a black python Gucci clutch.

Tinsley Mortimer is wearing my favourite colour of at the moment – electric blue.

Her dress was paired with a pair of grey heels.

I wonder if they will become her new favourites.
