Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Alexa Chung first wore this Luella Fall 2009 dress to the “British Academy Television Awards” in April.

I normally love, love, love Alexa but on this occasion I’m feeling a little let down.

This is her standard puffball look but I’m really not sure about the sweater underneath.

And don’t even get me started on that cat bag…

WAG Sheree Murphy then wore this dress at the beginning of December to the “Liverpool Style Awards”.

I actually don’t mind the tights in this look as they seem to compliment the pattern of the dress.

I love her dark eyes, really dramatic.

Elisabeth Moss wore this dress in mid December to the “Have You Heard About The Morgans Premiere” in New York.

How has she managed to make this dress look so mumsy?!

Everything from the shoes to the corkscrew curls ages this look about a hundred years.

For me, Sheree wins this round hands down.

2009 New York Variety Screening Series “A Single Man”, New York

I like the black pants Julianne Moore wore with her Balanciaga Fall 2009 blouse and lace bandeau, but I would’ve preferred the runway grey on her.

The grey is less heavy.

X-Factor Runners Up At Gatwick, London

X Factor runners up Stacey Soloman and Olly Murs made an appearance at Gatwick Airport today as part of the airport’s Christmas celebrations, which gave passengers the chance to sing to win at trip to see the Northern Lights – hopefully not on British Airways.

Stacey wore a bordeaux Temperley London Alexandria embellished silk tunic with cream peep-toes, which we recently saw on WAG Amanda Carrington.

12 mins 50 secs and counting.

“Did You Hear About The Morgans?” New York Premiere

Elisabeth Moss wore a Luella corseted jacquard mini dress from the Fall 2009 collection with black pumps.

Not my favourite look from her.

I really expected Sarah Jessica Parker to bring it at the New York preimere of her movie, but I was sadly disappointed.

At the London premiere she braved the elements wearing a L’Wren Scott mini dress, but on this occasion she kept it very simple with a chiffon dress with a leaf detail.

I don’t hate the look, but I just expected a bit more.

I do however love her Nicholas Kirkwood python cut-out platform heels.

I love this grey dress on Cynthia Nixon.

That draped detail is so subtly sexy.

Her silver peep-toes are a bit special too.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Woot woot. Not a corset in sight.

Leona Lewis appears to have weaned herself off wearing those darn corset belts.

I wonder how she’s holding up going cold turkey.

The vegan singer looks gorgeous wearing black jeans, a cropped jacket, a striped top, faux leather thigh-high boots whilst carrying a Stella McCartney chain-embellished faux leather bag.

Zoe Saldana wore a look by L’Agence which included a L’Agence Jersey scoop-neck top, white ultra skinny jeans and a grey blazer.

I love it when stars dress down and get it so right.

Worst Dressed Award
The second I saw Elizabeth Moss I wondered why she would wear an asymmetrical gown with that stunning necklace.

But it appears that the jeweled neckline is built into her Grecian inspired Reem Acra taupe gown.

Between the creases and the draping I just couldn’t love this gown.

Tried To Love It, But Couldn’t Award
I loved this Bottega Veneta Fall 2009 gown on the runway, but I don’t think it works on Leighton Meester at all.

She’s normally edgy on the red carpet, and I agree this is not the place to go edgy but I was just bored by her look, and she looked really bored on the red carpet too.

The only thing I like here is her Bottega Veneta clutch, as her hair and make-up is pretty awful too.

Most Disappointing Award
Kyra Sedgwick is always stunning on the red carpet, but I found it very difficult to love this L’Wren Scott Spring 2010 pink dress.

Kyra and L’Wren Scott often work very well together, but I really didn’t like the pink, nor the embellishments.

It felt too cutesy for a grown woman.

Should’ve Worn A Gown Award
Nothing appealed to me with regards to Mary Louise Parker dress.

Firstly I would’ve preferred her in a gown. Secondly I don’t like the bow on the hip and lastly the two-tone purple is hideous.

Worst Dressed Runner-Up Award
Padma Lakshmi was so close to being voted worst dressed. I just hated that red floral detail on the hip.

It was so unnecessary. Despite that it was a pretty boring Badgley Mischka gown anyway.

Least Flattering Award
I would be surprised if Sarah Silverman ever makes it onto the Best Dressed list, but this gown had great potential.

It’s a great colour on her, but the gown adds at least 15ins to each side of her hips.

How is this a good thing?

Pukey Pink Award
What’s with all the pukey pink gowns on the red carpet.

I know it’s a fresh summer time colour, but I really didn’t think it looked good on Toni Collette.

She is usually one to watch on the red carpet, but the look fails to impress me.

Of the rest, Laura Linney was definitely the best.

I love the mellow yellow colour of her asymmetrical Elie Saab Spring 2008 Couture gown, and the embellished waist. She looked outstanding.

Taraji P. Henson looked gorgeous in her J.Mendel Fall 2008 chiffon gown. It was quite dramatic, without going over the top.

She completed her look with a black satin Mary Norton clutch.

The trend for wearing electric blue continues with Mary-Louise Parker. Her Carlos Miele Spring 2009 gown had asymmetrical tiers from the bodice, and a chiffon hem and train.

She accessorized her gown with silver jewels and a Mary Norton clutch and Chopard jewels.

Sandra Bullock was another one of my favourites in this vanilla Dior gown.

I love how her hair falls to the opposite direction of her asymmetrical gown.

Rachel Griffiths wore a one-shouldered golden Ralph Rucci silk gown, with a Judith Leiber vintage handbag Decades Inc, Liseanne Frankfurt jewels and bronze Vanessa Noel heels.

Kyra Sedgwick did not wear L’Wren Scott as I had predicted. Instead she wore a strapless red belted Oscar de la Renta gown, with Fred Leighton jewels.

Amanda Seyfried wore an ethereal pearl Stella McCartney silk asymmetric gown, which had a beaded detail on the shoulder.

She completed her look with a Daniel Swarovski clutch.

Heidi Klum wore an incredibly cute strapless vintage James Galanos pouf dress, with black and red polka dots from Decades.

She completed her look with Christian Louboutin multi buckle sandals.

I was not crazy about Isla Fisher’s two-tone nude Carlos Miele Spring 2009 gown. I would have liked it to be all one colour.

Elisabeth Moss was one of the many ladies who picked red last night, hers was vintage Givenchy, and she picked Garrard jewels to complete her look.

Jane Krakowski opted for a J. Mendel gown, which she wore with Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry.

Melissa George does not do safe, which is why her thigh-high split ice blue Armani Prive gown has an interesting black fan detail on the bodice.

Tina Fey’s Roberto Cavalli plunging gown, also did not wow me.

Surprise guest of the night was Alek Wek. I don’t remember the last time I saw her on the red carpet.

The supermodel wore a Christian Dior Fall 2008 mini dress, which showed off her impossibly long legs.

Vanessa Hudgens wore a nude beaded Alberta Ferretti gown, with a candy coloured necklace.

Madeline Zima looks youthful but elegant. She has an amazing figure and I love how this dress shows her shape and the curves hit all the right points.

Viola Davis’ gown for some reason reminded me of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Zac Posen Oscar 2007 gown with shape and the lines.

She dressed well for her figure, and the colour is so complimentary to her skin.

Maria Menounos wore a cute purple ruffle one shoulder Ina Soltani gown.

Samantha Harris wore the same designer, but picked her dress in the colour of the moment – electric blue.

Christina Hendricks has curves to die for. The stunning redhead looked ravishing wearing a custom black silk sculpted strapless Tadashi gown.

Anna Paquin wore a purple Herve Leroux gown, which had a ruched bodice and draped detail on the side.
