Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Two L’Wren Scott devotees were spotted wearing the same emerald-green dress from the designer’s Fall 2012 collection mere months apart.

Penelope Cruz was first to wear this green dress with gold embellishments when she made a guest appearance on the ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ show in New York City back in June.

The actress paired the look with a classic pair of nude platform heels and left her voluminous locks down.

Her feminine figure fits the classic wrap dress to a tee and she looks stunning, as per usual.

However, does she beat L’Wren Scott’s biggest fan, Ellen Barkin?

Ellen Barkin wore the same dress on Saturday for ‘Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne Barr’ at the Hollywood Palladium in LA. She styled the long-sleeved dress with an interesting choice of purple croc pumps, a pink lip colour and a slicked back French roll ’do for a very elegant red-carpet look.

While both stars do the designer justice in this L’Wren Scott design, I’m partial to go with Penelope on this one.

There are a few things which are pretty much certain in fashion – Victoria Beckham will always wear a piece from her collection, Eva Longoria will wear Brian Atwood shoes, Anna Wintour will wear her cream Manolo Blahnik heels and Ellen Barkin will always wear a L’Wren Scott dress.

That was certainly true when the actress hit the red carpet on Friday evening at the Hollywood Palladium in Hollywood, California, for the Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne Barr.

Dressed in a green dress from L’Wren Scott’s Fall 2012 collection, Ellen jersey dress with gold embroidered details on the waist and shoulders, was paired with purple croc pumps.

I don’t know about you, but I prefer the longer version on the runway.

Other than that, this is another great look for Ellen. No wonder L’Wren Scott continue to be her go-to designers.

A chic French roll and a pink lip colour completed her look.

You may remember that Penelope Cruz – another L’Wren Scott devotee – wore this dress last month on Jimmy Fallon.

Ellen Barkin joined a host of stars on the red carpet yesterday evening for the 2012 Tony Awards held at the Beacon Theatre in New York City.

For the past five years that I have been blogging, I don’t think I’ve ever seen Ellen wear a designer other than L’Wren Scott.

On this occasion she wore a purple Chantilly lace long-sleeved gown from the designer’s Fall 2012 collection.

Fred Leighton jewels, plus a turquoise eel clutch and matching turquoise sandals, both by L’Wren Scott, accessorized her look with a updo and glossy lips providing the finishing touches.

Here are the rest of the looks from the red carpet at the 2011 Tony Awards, which was held at the Beacon Theatre in New York City last night.

Sutton Foster: The actress took home a Tony Award for ‘Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical’ for ‘Anything Goes’. She opted for an olive strip chiffon strapless Michael Kors gown. Her look was accessorized with Michael Kors gold stiletto sandals with snake chain detail and a bronze python barrel clutch. Fred Leighton jewels an updo completed her look.

Ellen Barkin: The actress was also an award winner, taking home a Tony Award for ‘Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Play’ for ‘The Normal Heart’. She is a L’Wren Scott devotee. She nearly always wears classic dresses by the designer, so it’s no surprise to see her wearing a custom look on this special occasion. Her L’Wren Scott black gown with a Chantilly lace overlay was paired with black lace L’Wren Scott shoes and a vintage Cartier clutch.

Lily Rabe: Emerald earrings were added to her Prabal Gurung Spring 2011 gown. Her ivory silk crepe chiffon backless gown with appliqué patched sleeves and a thigh-high split was a bold fashion forward look for this award ceremony. Sergio Rossi heels completed her look.

“A Steady Rain” Broadway Opening Night, New York

What does Ellen Barkin, Nicole Kidman and Kyra Sedgwick have in common?

They all love wearing L’Wren Scott’s figure-hugging dresses.

Nicole Kidman has actually worn this black and white trimmed L’Wren Scott Headmistress dress.

Nicole opted for red peep-toes, but Ellen wore t-bar patent Christian Louboutin’s to complete her look.

Hair Magazine Awards, London

UK TV and Radio presenter Lauren Laverne wore a Jonathan Saunders Fall 2009 LBD, which had a wet-look bodice wrapped around stunning embellishments.

I love the her curly cropped bob and her flawless make-up.

Even though I personally don’t like tights, this head-to-toe look really works well for her.

The Richard Nicoll Fall 2009 runway fashion-forward piece has been soften to a pink & nude silk slip dress on Donna Air.

She added grey sandals and a silver statement necklace to complete her look.

Tamsin Egerton looks stunning wearing an Alexander Wang one-sleeved jersey ruched dress, which just goes to prove that Wang’s clothes are desired on both sides of the Atlantic.

It’s getting cooler temperature-wise in London, but thankfully Tamsin didn’t opt for tights.

She instead showed-off her enviable legs wearing gold peep-toes.

VV Brown often wears edgy, unknown designers or a lot of vintage pieces, but on this occasion I can spot an embellished Topshop jacket.

The look is paired with a vintage faux-fur hat, black pants and nude ballet pumps.

Jenny Frost’s dress says one thing, “I want to attention.”

I may have liked the dress if it had fit better.  It just a piece of material hanging from her paired with a black belt.

“UNITE Unveiled: Gen Art’s Fresh Faces In Fashion”, LA

‘The Hills’ star Kristen Cavallari looked lovely wearing a lacy nude top with a black leather skirt and nude patent Brian Atwood heels.

I’m very impressed that her flesh coloured bra isn’t immediately noticeable.

If this was Heidi Montag she would’ve won a bright pink bra just to draw attention to herself.

“Rock A Little, Feed A Lot” Benefit Concert, LA

Marcia Cross looked surprisingly raunchy in her Dsquared² embellished top, with James Jean’s “Twiggy” legging jeans.

It’s hard to believe Isla Fisher is a mother of one, because looks so young.

She kept her look super casual wearing a graphic print tee, short black leather skirt and zipper gladiator sandals.

Jenna Dewan opted for a H&M multi-coloured striped dress, paired with black leggings and navy pumps.

02 X Awards 2009, London

Yasmin Le Bon wore a berry velvet suit from her YLB for Wallis collection, paired with a black blouse.

Make-up free but still gorgeous.

Selena Gomez is the epitome of chic at her album launch party wearing nude silk top, a chocolate sequin mini skirt and nude patent heels.

The side-parted pony tail gives this look a youthful feel which has been missing from previous looks.

Best Of The Rest

Unfortunately pictures of ladies did not come through until later on today, but they are so fabulous, that they deserve to get a mention.

Diane von Furstenberg, and Joy Bryant are equally colourful in their gowns.

Joy works this turtle-neck gown well, in a way that Rachel Bilson could not pull off.

Natasha Richardson gave Beyonce a run for her money in being “pretty in pink”.

Melania Trump knows how to “bring over the top” glamour, in a way I adore. The colour, the volume, the pose, the sexy silhouette all scream “Look at me“.

Ellen Barkin is has a very sexy silhouette in her black gown with jeweled detail.

Venus Williams’ mocha taffeta dress is stunning on her, despite the fact she was dressed by André Talley.

Tamara Mellon wore a sexy black satin gown.

Janet Jackson wore a ice white Fall 2008 halter neck silk jersey gown, with silver embroidery on the halter.

Rosamund Pike appears to be the brand ambassador for Roland Mouret, as this is the third red carpet event in a row she has worn the designer.

Ivanka Trump is quite the ice princesses in her chiffon gown.

How cute is Chanel Iman? So full of personality and she has a gorgeous ruffled dress to match that personality.

Jourdan Dunn opted for a purpled feathered mini creation.

Karolina Kurkova shimmers in her gown.

The supermodels show us exactly why they have earned their titles.

Helena Christensen sparkles, Christy Turlington stands out in red, Liya Kebede has a sexy slick silhouette, and Claudia Schiffer is adorable the baby blue ruffled gown.

Bee Schaffer and Lauren Bush both opted for purple. Bee’s dress was a gorgeous strapless ombre ball gown that is full of volume and has a thunderous storm feeling to it, whilst Lauren opted for a simple one-shouldered gown.

Stephanie Seymour, Donna Karan and Liv Tyler’s dresses all speak for themselves.
