Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Emily Mortimer first wore this Chanel dress from the Paris-Monte Carlo Pre-Fall 2007 collection to the “Costume Institute Benefit Gala” in New York way back in May 2007.

I think Emily looks really cute here and I like that she’s gone for a similar coloured shoe.

The gold of her belt was a nice bit of styling, as it really pops against the blue of her dress.

Leigh Lezark then wore this dress to Chanel’s “Fete D’Hiver Fall Gala” in November 2009.

I adore this dress on Leigh as I think she looks so elegant in this royal blue, yet it still reflects her edgier side.

I can’t understand why she chose to wear black pumps though. It seems like such an unthoughtful end to such a great outfit.

As Emily styled it better she wins for me.

British actress Emily Mortimer was a guest at one of the many Topshop/Topman launch dinner parties, held around the time of the New York store opening back in March.

She wore a black Topshop gold and lace detailed dress, with tights, black heels and a lipstick pink boyfriend blazer.

Lily Collins wore the same dress to “The Serpentine Gallery’s Summer Party” last month in London, with Topshop black and gold sandals and a black clutch.

The blazer was a welcome pop of colour to her all black ensemble, so Emily wins for me.

This dress is available to purchase from Topshop for £65/$135.

Michelle Monaghan follows the bold shoulder trend with her dove grey suede jacket, which along with her statement necklace, is the main focus of her look.

Black skinny jeans, a sheer ivory blouse and black cut-out booties, complete the look.

I’m loving her wavy ‘do.

Wearing a black blouse and jeans, Emma Roberts added a dash of colour with her ivory Topshop lace beaded jacket, and matching ivory Topshop platform pumps.

She completed the look with 3 gold necklaces, including a cute nameplate necklace.

Adding a huge dose of high fashion to this event, designer Georgina Chapman arrived wearing a pink strapless Marchessa Spring 2009 dress, under a glittering black sequined jacket from her Fall 2008 collection.

A gorgeous smile, and cute satin pumps complete the look.

Every time I see Taylor Momsen she makes me chuckle. Her look is always so forced, as she continues to morph into her Gossip Girl character.

Her look included a cropped biker jacket, fishnet tights, a bubblegum pink pleated skirt -which matches her lipstick- and a statement cuff.

Model Arlenis Sosa has been one of the many faces for Topshop, when she starred in a campaign for them recently.

The gorgeous fresh faced model wore a graphic print mini dress, with her favourite black tuxedo jacket.

Emily Mortimer wears a hot pink blazer over her racy lace mini dress.

Michelle Trachtenberg’s sequined dress, is worn with a leather jacket, ankle booties and a Chanel purse.

Diane Kruger was looking as radiant as ever in a strapless two-tone YSL gown. She outshone everyone at this event.

The detail on the bodice is exquisite, and the blue is electrifying.

Becki Newton is wearing a stunning pair of YSL Spring 2009 heels, which I have been lusting after since seeing them on the runway last year.

Amanda from Ugly Betty would be green with envy watching Becki walk the red carpet in a glimmering green sequined YSL Spring 2009 strapless dress.

Claire Danes looked exquisite in a silk YSL Pre-Fall 2009 navy halter gown, which had a ruched bodice, and a draped skirt.

Her hair was styled in an elegant updo, and she carried a gorgeous gold jeweled YSL clutch.

British actress Emily Mortimer wore a round-necked maroon YSL Spring 2009 dress.

Her dress was accessorized with a black velvet with bow detailed belt, which sits a little too high for my liking, as it gives her quite an unflattering shape.

Zoe Saldana is gorgeous wearing a strapless green YSL Pre-Fall 2009 gown, which had a small black bowed detailed sash.

She completed the look with a matching emerald green satin clutch.

Claudia Schiffer only just pulls off this YSL Spring 2009 dress. On most of us this full-length, high neck gown would look like a sack, but on Claudia it’s just works.

Maybe it was the YSL caged sandals and the ruby red lips, that helped perfect her look.

Ginnifer Goodwin has been a bit off on the red carpet lately. But she managed to redeemed herself with this stunning strapless YSL print gown.

I love how it flows with a slightly ruffled and tiered fishtail skirt.

Kanye West and girlfriend Amber Rose are making the most of their new-found fashion status.

Amber Rose looked quite elegant from the waist up, wearing a white wrap dress, which had a thigh-high split, revealing her tattoo.

The look was completed with a black furry stole, a black fringed clutch, and black satin pumps.

Brooke Shields was sophisticated in strapless gown. The gown had a bow detail on the bodice, which seems to be the theme of the night.

Had Mary-Kate Olsen styled her hair better, I would have really liked this look, but an Olsen isn’t an Olsen without a hint of signature scruffiness, right?

Mary-Kate wears her black kimono with a silver belt, which matched her YSL clutch.

Parker Posey opted for a burgundy gown, with a matching furry bolero. The look was complete with a multiple gold linked necklace, and a YSL clutch.

Patricia Clarkson was elegant in a blue strapless YSL gown. I adore her feathered clutch.

Best Dressed/Pretty in Pink Award
As I hoped and prayed Freida Pinto did not let us down on the red carpet tonight, in fact she surpassed my expectations.

As we predicted she did wear an Oscar de la Renta gown, from the Resort 2009 collection.

The pretty pink dress was the perfect colour, and the 18th century Fred Leighton jewels she wore were the perfect compliment.

I hope this run will never end.

Best Asymmetrical Gown Award
What is not to love about Marisa Tomei in her gorgeous shimmering Etro Spring 2009 asymmetrical gown?

The actress walked the red carpet without her favourite Fendi clutch, which is a good thing because it would not have worked with this gown, but what did work were her nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

Brave choice for such a horrible rainy day.

Best On Trend & Best Unofficial Brand Ambassador Award
Amy Adams was on trend with her electric blue RM by Roland Mouret gown.

The mermaid gown is gorgeous. Not to over the top, very understated, very elegant. As usual Amy makes a quite impact on the red carpet.

Regular readers will notices that there is a bit of trend developing with Amy. The tends to be the unofficial brand ambassador for designers for 3 gowns, then she moves on.

Oscar de la Renta for Critic’s Choice Awards, a Pre-Golden Globe party and the Golden Globes.

Giambattisa Valli for the Motion Pictures Awards Gala, the Doubt UK Screening and the SAG Awards.

Now Roland Mouret for the Oscar nominees luncheon, the Pre-BAFTA party and now the BAFTAs.

Who will she pick next?

English Rose Award
Emily Mortimer was one of the few Brits not to stick to safe black, instead she wore a grey tiered YSL Resort 2009 gown, with a snake print bodice, and a cute velvet black bow.

Unfortunately it looks like her gown got caught in the rain.

Black Again? But I Love It Award
Kate Winslet wore a black Zac Posen mermaid gown.

Yes, I am a bit disappointed that it was not as vivacious as her electric blue Narciso Rodriguez gown, but her body is so damm amazing in this dress, that you just have to love her.

Best Vintage Award
After her pink Blumarine dress, Thandie Newton had a lot to live up too.

She does not disappoint in her black strapless vintage gown with gold detailing through-out, but I am not particularly wowed either.

Lady In Red Award
Sharon Stone was ravishing in wearing a red John Galliano Spring 2009 gown.

Not a hint of animal print. I admire her restraint.

Best Re-Run Award
We have seen this Stella McCartney gown twice before on Salma Hayek and Amanda Seyfried, but Laura Bailey’s blush pink revision is gorgeous, so all is forgiven.

Best Comeback Award
It has been a while since we saw the adorable Kylie Minogue on the red carpet in the UK, and girlfriend proved that she still has it.

She wore gold heels with her spaghetti strapped black Chanel Fall 2002 Couture dress, which had an interested detailed hem.

Just OK Award
Emma Watson is surprisingly not wearing Chanel, but Temperley London, which is a welcome relief.

That embroidered neckline is very much a trademark of Temperley, so this dress doesn’t feel particularly fresh to me as I would have hoped.

Best Necklace Award
I love the youthful glow that Goldie Hawn radiates.

She wore a black satin strapless dress – that did not squash her twins – with a stunning diamond necklace.

Best Impression of Mary Poppins Award
Meryl Streep channeled her inner Mary Poppins, as she sheltered under her umbrella from the horrendous British weather.

With her all black ensemble the legendary actress wore Fred Leighton jewels and Daniel Swarovski clutch.

Best Late Comer Award
I can not believe that I these are the only two pictures of Kristin Scott Thomas on the red carpet last night, and I had to wait until the following day to find them. I guess she arrived late on the red carpet.

Kristin looked as elegant as ever in this beaded vintage-inspired gown in midnight blue. The actress decided against fussy jewelery, opting to show off her flawless neckline instead.
