Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Elizabeth Hurley helped launch the “Evelyn H. Lauder Photo Exhibition” in Paris yesterday.

The British model/actress looked stunning in a J.Mendel Spring 2010 dress with curvilinear seam details.

Her dress was paired with gold Brian Atwood Alley patent leather and PVC pumps.

She would’ve left home believing than no one could upstage her. But she didn’t count on Evelyn Lauder.

The American socialite and philanthropist totally outshone Elizabeth wearing an Alexander McQueen Spring 2010 reptile print dress.

Elizabeth Hurley joined forces with Sir Elton John to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in New York this week.

The British actress made sure she stood out by wearing the charity’s symbolic colour – pink.

We know Liz isn’t afraid wear bold colours and that’s exactly what she went for when she opted for this fuchsia pink Valentino Resort 2010 gown.

The stunning gown has a ruffled detail around the shoulders and a ruffled side split.

A pink crystal embellished Judith Leiber clutch and Rene Caovilla heels complete this fabulous look.

We expected Liz to look fabulous on the red carpet with her many years of experience and she doesn’t let us down.

There has been much speculation this weekend as to whether Kelly Rowland or Mel B will be replacing Dannii Mingoue as the next X Factor judge.

Kelly let her amazing Basil Soda Fall 2009 Couture gown do all the talking and it was saying “WOW”.

I don’t think I’ve seen her look this amazing since her Destiny’s Child days.

The colour is divine on her plus the cut flatters her figure and gives her curves.

First contender for BDOTW.

Model Natalie Suliman also wore a gown from the Basil Soda Fall 2009 Couture collection.

Her gorgeous green chiffon gown was dripping with embellish details which cascaded down her gown.

Anouck Lepere opted for a white Mark Fast scoop neck knit dress.

The drop-waist dress had heavy long fringing to give it a flapper feel which I love, but I just didn’t love the black patent pumps.

White dresses and black shoes have always been a no-no in my book.

Elizabeth Hurley wore a white fur gilet, which despite it’s size feels like it’s covering the whole of her gown.

Such a shame because this is a gorgeous colour on Liz.

I do like the print on Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s metallic dress, but the style of the dress feel so mumsy.

Frankie Sandford, Mollie King, Una Healy, Rochelle Wiseman and Vanessa White of the Saturdays look stunning in their mix of spring ready pastel floor length gowns, mini dresses and LBDs.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor charmed in her Elie Saab Fall 2009 black embellished dress by adding a true signature Lulu Guinness hot red lips clutch.

I love the racy red strappy heels.  Some would have stuck to safe black.

On any other week she may have been up for BDOTW.

What a way to show off your post-baby body.

Kimora Lee Simmons used to make some questionable choices on the red carpet, but since dating Djimon Hounsou she appears to have left her ghetto fabulousness behind, and is giving us pure Fabulosity – to borrow her term.

She looks stunning in a Jenny Packham shimmering gold plunging gown which show off her twins, or as Teresa Giudice from “The Housewives of New Jersey” would call them “boobies”.

I think it must be ‘Cheryl Cole Appreciation Day’ today, because firstly Beyonce Knowles wore a similar David Koma dress to the X Factor judge.

Now Kimora is wearing the same Jenny Packham Fall 2010 Bridal jeweled hair accessory which Cheryl wore on week 3 of the X Factor with her Atelier Versace white gown.

Who would have thought little Cheryl Cole was just a trend-setter.

This satin Dolce & Gabbana mermaid gown keeps popping up on the red carpet like the Dolce & Gabbana tulle gowns.

Eva Herzigova opted to wear her green version off-the-shoulder.

Unfortunately the gown sits too low for my liking.

Rihanna, Rosario Dawson and Caterina Murino have all worn this same gown.

Elizabeth Hurley is usually wears knee-length dresses or thigh-high split gowns, so this fruity tangerine above-the-knee dress is a refreshing change.

She pairs her dress with Jimmy Choo gold heels and a matching clutch.

Curtis School Summer Fair, LA

Isn’t it too hot to be wearing head-to-toe leather in LA?

Not for Victoria Beckham it seems.

The mother of 3 was spotted out in LA wearing a Balmain Spring 2009 leather jacket, with Dsquared² Fall 2009 leather pants.

“Dare” Screening, East Hampton

Emmy Rossum is giving us so much variety on the red carpet lately, that it’s hard not to be impressed.

The brunette beauty looked gorgeous on the red carpet wearing a teal Lela Rose Spring 2009 fitted dress, with a ruffled detail on the shoulder.

Her look was paired with gold accessories including Christian Louboutin Fortuna platform sandals and a gold clutch.

The Art Of Elysium’s GENESIS Event, LA

Sophia Bush should really be the campaign girl for Max Azria as she is – along with Amanda Bynes – so loyal to the brand.

Just last week she wore a BCBG Max Azria gown, this weekend she wore a Max Azria lace mini dress and for this event she wore a black and white Herve Leger bandage dress from the Resort 2010 collection.

Burgundy suede Trib Two’s complete this stunning look.

19th Annual ‘Divas Simply Singing!’ AIDS Benefit Concert, LA


Actress Sheryl Lee Ralph paired purple strappy sandals with her purple Tadashi Shoji Fall 2009 satin draped dress.

The colour is exquisite.

Women Of The Year Lunch, London


I love Katherine Jenkins’ French Connection sequined dress.

It’s cute, young and fun plus it has shoulder pads, but the hair really lets her down.

It looks like she had an electric shock.

Like almost everyone else on this post she wore Trib Two’s.

10th Anniversary of Estee Lauder Raising Funds for Breast Cancer, New York


Last year Elizabeth Hurley seemed to have her sensitivity chip missing when she arrived at the Global Illumination Initiative to raise awareness for breast cancer in London wearing a breast enhancing Giambattista Valli dress.

For this Breast Cancer event she was dressed demurely wearing a pink sequined fitted Naeem Khan dress paired with nude heels.

The Surfrider Foundation’s 25th Anniversary Gala, LA


Audrina Patridge is the 4th person on this post to pair their look with YSL Trib Two’s proving that when it comes to walking the red carpet, these YSL Trib Two’s are still as popular as they were 2 seasons ago.

This is due to the fact that they are so comfortable to walk in.

The “actress” wore a sexy silver Obakki Spring 2010 strapless ruche bodice dress and carried a matching clutch.

Elizabeth Hurley was spotted leaving the Louis Dundas Centre Launch Party at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London last night glowing in a Versace Fall 2009 aqua gown.

I love this stunning one-shoulder satin gown which has paillettes covering the shoulder and part of the bodice.  She really knows how to work a Versace gown.

Silver accessories complete this amazing look.

Liz + Versace = Perfection.

Tana and Gordon Ramsay left this event hand in hand.

He scrubs up well in a dark grey suit, whilst Tana wore a black Victoria Beckham Spring 2009 fitted dress with maroon strappy sandals.

Love the shoe choice.

Abigail Clancy is wearing a sexy Alexander Wang draped mini dress, but for once I can not see her underwear.

This must be a first.

The WAG wore her nude and black draped dress with black strappy sandals as she posed with her guest who wore a lace LBD and Jimmy Choo heels.

Jade Jones and Emma Bunton are like childhood sweethearts. They’ve been together for as long as I can remember.

It was bitterly cold in London last night, so unlike the rest who dared to show a bit of flesh, Emma was more covered up wearing a red dress under a black blazer.

Jade looked very dapper in his pinstriped navy suit.

Sporting longer locks which were swept to the side, Lily Allen was named “Woman of the Year” and the “2009 GQ Men Of The Year Awards” in London last night.

The face of Chanel “Coco Cocoon” bag collection walked the red carpet wearing a black sheer double strapped Chanel Resort 2010 gown.

Had Lily wondered what that extra piece of material was for on the front of her gown, she’ll wonder no more when she sees her picture in the papers this morning.

Many of you are horrified that Lily is the face of Chanel, and when she ruins a perfectly wonderful gown like this I have to agree.

Freida Pinto makes a vast improvement from her last outing, which lets face it wouldn’t have been too difficult.

I love that she took a risk with this Christopher Kane black layered dress, but the hair is a bit too prim and proper for such an edgy look.

The actress pairs her dress with Rupert Sanderson Khyber cutout sandals.

I would’ve much rather seen Freida wear something more colourful, but I think she just pulls this off.

Louise Redknapp also opted for a shortened Christopher Kane Fall 2009 asymmetrical dress.

Her mesh dress with black velvet trims was paired with YSL Trib Two heels and Bottega Veneta clutch.

Katherine Jenkins appears to love the Victoria Beckham dress collection as much as the designer herself, as this is the 2nd VB dress we’ve seen her wear.

This time she opted for violet Giral strapless shot silk dress.

I’m guessing Katherine likes this collection so much because the dresses caters for those with a larger bust.

When I tried on a strapless dress from Victoria’s Spring 2009 collection I could barely fill the bodice.

The only way I recognised that Gemma Arterton was wearing Louis Vuitton was by her clutch and heels.

For some reason the LV pizazz is lost on Gemma, and this ruffle collared jacket suddenly becomes quite ordinary.

I just feel like raising the collar, its not meant to be so flat.

Victoria Hesketh aka Little Boots was one of my favourites at this event wearing a Josh Goot multi coloured printed ruched mini dress.

The surprising feature is that the back of the dress and sleeves are plain black.

The singer completes her look with an Alexander McQueen knuckle duster clutch.

Pixie Lott opted for a bedazzling Collette Dinnigan Spring 2009 mini dress coved in diamanté embellishments.

Ankle boots and studded cuffs complete the look.

We first saw this dress worn by Taylor Swift.

Much like Leighton Meester’s MTV Movie Awards Emilio De La Morena dress, Alexandra Burke’s black and white mesh Emilio Pucci dress is quite cheeky.

I’m really scared to see what this dress looked like from the back.

A turtleneck? In yesterday’s soaring heat?

I feel hot just looking at Kelly Osbourne wearing this Jasmine di Milo’s Fall 2009 dress.

Dita von Teese will be full of admiration for Kelly Brook’s waist reducing dress.

The pink rubber printed Atsuko Kudo Couture dress appears to have a built in corset to give Kelly an hour glass shape.

I bet she gave off a sexy wiggle when she walked in this dress.

Even though Eva Mendes was the “big star” at this event I was more impressed by people like Little Boots and Kelly Brook for giving us something new.

Eva wore a stunning maroon shimmering gown.

The colour was sublime on her, but the wow factor was missing. Eva can do this kind of look in her sleep.

Daisy Lowe opted for a space-aged look, which she paired down with black pumps.

Rachel Stevens hair and make-up is quite outstanding. I love the transformation maybe the newlywed decided to spice up her image.

Her LND with a voluminous skirt is oh so cute.

Tamara Ecclestone wore a striking Preen black and white lightening-print bandage-style dress paired with black ankle boots and a matching clutch.

Elizabeth Hurley’s strapless but dress is cute enough, but why I’m I so bored?
