Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Britain Next Top Model host Elle Macpherson was spotted arriving at the Grosvenor hotel in London this week to attend the Broadcast Awards.

She looked breath-taking wearing a forest green Herve Leger by Max Azria gown.

I adore the colour and the embellished details. This is the perfect evening look for Fall.

Kate Mara wore a Herve Leger gown recently to the 2011 SAG Awards which showed us how Herve Leger gowns can go so wrong, but Elle’s look is so very right.

She wore her gown with black strappy sandals, a black and a fur bolero to complete her look.

Stunning…even though her dress is up by her knees.

Elle Macpherson appears to be an unofficial brand ambassador for Victoria Beckham’s dress collection, because yet again the supermodel was spotted on “The Beautiful Life” wearing a dress from VB’s Spring 2009 collection.

The obsession started back in May this year when Elle wore a strapless black Spring 2009 dress to “The CW Network 2009 Upfront” event in New York.

She was no doubt drawn to the sleek structured design that enhanced and flattered her toned body.

All the pictures we have seen of Elle on set of “The Beautiful Life” this month have all been in VB’s Spring 2009 and Fall 2009 designs.

In the show Elle is Claudia Foster, a former Eighties supermodel who runs a modelling agency. Which explains the big hair and the pout.

In the most recent picture she looks like school teacher which is quite confusing.

I hope Victoria Beckham hasn’t watched the movie “Single White Female”, as she would be very afraid of Elle Macpherson right about now. j/k

On the set of “The Beautiful Life” Elle wore yet another dress from Victoria Beckham’s Fall 2009 collection which VB has worn recently.

This time it was the black ‘Giral’ strapless silk dress which Victoria wore when she arrived back from Denver after her judging gig on “American Idol”.

The dress and sunglasses are the same, but the hair is not.

I know this contradicts what I said yesterday about “no one beats VB in her own threads”, but I hated Victoria’s Croydon facelift as it makes her face so harsh, so Elle wins for me.

Victoria’s Giral strapless silk dress is available in purchase from the Net-A-Porter US site for $2,625, and the Net-A-Porter International site for £1,750/€2,188.

Within a month Victoria Beckham’s ‘Carmontelle’ cashmere-blend dress has been worn on 3 different shoots.

I was surprised Leighton Meester was the first to wear a Victoria Beckham Fall 2009 dress in claret red, on the set of “Gossip Girl” last month before Victoria.

Her dress was totally Blair-ified with pearls and a trademark headband.

Victoria picked this same dress in grey to wear on the shoot of her ad campaign, which is impressive considering bigger designers like Christian Dior will not shoot a Fall 2009 ad campaign.

This week Elle Macpherson looked younger than her 46 years wearing the same dress in grey on set of “The Beautiful Life”.

It seems the model/actress has studied VB closely getting both the look and the pout right.

For me no one can out do VB in her own threads.

The collection is not only made by her, but made for her so she wins for me, with Elle a very close second.


The Net-A-Porter US site is the only place you can currently buy this stunning dress online for $3,145.

The cast of “Gossip Girl” is already incredibly glamorous, but recently supermodel Tyra Banks was on set with Hilary Duff filming scenes for the hit show at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York.

Tyra sported retro waves and large chandelier earrings whilst wearing a Marchesa Fall 2007 black gown with a beaded bodice.

Both Molly Sims and Ashanti have worn this gown on the red carpet.

Along with Valentino bags, Marchesa dresses seem to be favoured on the show as Hilary is wearing one from the Spring 2009 collection, and Leighton Meester wore a Spring 2008 ball-gown as Blair Waldorf to the Prom.

The second supermodel on set this week was Elle MacPherson.

She was shooting scenes on Mischa Barton’s new TV show “The Beautiful Life” in New York.

Sporting larger than life hair and black shades, Elle channeled her inner VB wearing Victoria Beckham’s ‘Carmontelle’ Fall 2009 dress with metallic heels.

This dress is the same dress Victoria wore on her ad shoot, and Leighton Meester wore on the set of Gossip Girl recently.

I feel a who wore it better on set? post coming up.
