Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Zac Posen was joined on the red carpet by supermodels Crystal Renn and Erin O’Connor for the 2012 Metropolitan Opera Season Opening Night performance of ‘L’Elisir D’Amore’ at The Metropolitan Opera House in New York City on Monday night.

The supers were of course wearing glamorous Zac Posen gowns.

Crystal stuns in an emerald taffeta-and-tulle ball gown which she styled with David Webb ‘Monkey’ earrings in yellow gold and green onyx.

I wasn’t so excited about Erin’s look.

Her Zac Posen Resort 2013 draped bustier gown is gorgeous, but she looks so washed out in this cream gown with ghostly makeup.

It may have worked in the look book, but in real life without the lighting and the photoshopping, not so much.

Even her colourful David Webb necklace can’t lift this look for me.

Thandie Newton gets another gold star this time for wearing this multi-coloured Matthew Williamson Resort 2010 dress.

Her look is almost a head-to-toe carbon copy of the runway look, but Thandie opted for a skinny gold studded belt instead of the wider runway belt, and she has a smaller bejeweled clutch.

Nude cut-away ankle boots complete this stunning look.

Best Dressed of the Week is going to be very crowded with Thandie and Emma’s looks.

Roisin Murphy finally does one of the silk voluminous shoulder pieces from the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 collection justice.

I’m quite surprised her look is so close to the runway version, as she usually mixes things up a bit.

Her many accessories included bejeweled belt, gold necklace and large copper sequined bag which she carried as a clutch.

My only disappointment are those black patent heels.  Too stale for this kind of look.

Little Boots arrived wearing the same D&G silk brocade jacket with leggings, which Emma Watson wore in her editorial for Elle UK.

Little Boots is quiet daring with her style choices, so I’m surprised she didn’t copy the runway look.

After her disappointing looks at Haute Couture Fashion Week, Dasha Zhukova gets back to her stunning best wearing a cream Azzedine Alaia dress with a frou-frou skirt and a matching waist belt.

Her dress is gorgeous which she complements with a black and white print cropped jacket and Azzedine Alaia shell decorated heels.

After giving birth to her first child a few months ago Tess Daly has already snapped back to her perfect best.

The TV presenter showed off her stunning pins in this gold See by Chloé mini dress with a tiered bodice, which was folded in the skirt to add subtle volume.

Tess accessorized with some very sexy Jimmy Choo Billie Lizard-print sandals and mirrored clutch.

Meg Matthews continues to channel a very demure look. The wild rock chick seems to be a thing of the past.

Meg is wearing the black version of the same Antonio Berardi tweed crew neck dress she wore to the “Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince” UK Premiere.

Poppy Delevigne looks super sexy wearing a long sleeved black embellished mini dress with a pair of Topshop frill sandals.

Lily Collins has walked many red carpets, but I’m still yet to see her do anything noteworthy.

Phil Collins’ daughter is supposed to be an actress but I couldn’t name a single film or TV show she has been in.

Lily wore a lace Topshop lace bodycon dress with some Topshop black and gold sandals which very much look like Louis Vuitton Spicy sandals.

Gold jewelery and a black patent clutch completed the look.

Erin O’Connor wore a plunging jade-green Donna Karan Grecian style dress.

The shapeless dress should drown Erin’s slender frame, but the drapes and her elegant stature prevent that.

Natalie Imbruglia red gown is gorgeous but the Chanel black and white bag is so heavy it feels like a slap in the face.

A black clutch would have been much more subtle.

Olivia Palmero wore a champagne coloured dress with a dazzlingly Zara clutch, Topshop leather disc jacket, and Topshop velcro strapped heels.

Either these girls love Topshop as much as I do, or the retailer sponsored this event.

Agyness Deyn seems less annoying lately, mostly because she isn’t shoved in my face 24/7.

The model wore a gunmetal grey Giles Fall 2009 ultra mini dress, on a very mild evening in London, whilst carrying a blue House of Holland bag in the shape of a Monopoly house.

The super, who is only 5ft 8in, looks super-sized wearing a pair of black and white Christian Louboutin Differa sandals.

The berry shade of lippie doesn’t work for me, but was the right choice for her overall look, unlike her bubble gum pink nails.

Christopher Kane’s designs are so unique and so well structured, I’m surprised we don’t see more of his pieces on the red carpet.

Yasmin le Bon wore a nude Christopher Kane high neckline dress from his Spring 2009 collection, which is detailed with horizontal and vertical black leather scallops covering the dress.

The exquisite detail of this show-piece makes a very strong style statement, and I’m glad Yasmin pulls this of so effortlessly.

A fabulous dress, needs fabulous heels, and Yasmin doesn’t disappoint in that department either, wearing a stunning pair of Christian Dior Spring 2009 heels.

I don’t tend to find socialites very interesting, but I love Poppy Delevigne’s Chanel Spring 2009 gown.

She’s totally breath-taking, as she wears the gown which just an elegant grace, that she totally puts the model in the shade.

I much prefer the gown, without the brooch chain detail.

Erin O’Connor was a regal as ever, wearing black Temperley London Fall 2009 gown, with gold embroidered details.  She opted out of wearing the sari, which was presented on the runway.

Stella McCartney is so ahead of the game, I think it’s safe to assume that this glorious floral confection, with bold shoulders, and sculptural hips will be part of her Spring 2010 collection

Her shoes are also pretty spectacular, but they look like they’d pinch after a while.

Regardless, they are on my wish list. I like a good challenge.

I normally love what Beth wears, but this string vest look, I can’t get on board with.

Beth joins a long list of stars who have fallen for the ever so lust worthy Louis Vuitton Spicy heels.

All I can say about Alexa Chung is, I like her pink Chanel bag. The rest is to be expected, especially her two-tone hair.

Michael Kors invited many supermodels to the launch party of his new Bond Street Flagship London store, whilst they all looked fabulous in his clothes.

Can you believe Yasmin le Bon is old enough to have such a 19 year old daughter?

They look more like sisters.

Amber Le Bon is currently the face of lingerie brand Myla. She towered over her supermodel mother wearing a turquoise mini dress, under a grey oversized blazer. Her accessories don’t quite work for me, but she looks gorgeous all the same.

Yasmin on the other hand was head-to-toe perfection. She sparkled in her gorgeous Caribbean blue Michael Kors skirt, black belted top, yellow clutch and black point pumps.

Yasmin’s fellow supermodels were there.

Astrid Munoz had an almost identical look to Yasmin, as she wore the same skirt Michael Kors skirt, but in a coral colour, and she wore a black sleeveless top which she wore with a red belt.

Eva Herzigova opted for black and gold, head to toe. What really stood out were her gold sequined pants. A black Jimmy Choo clutch complete the look.

Erin O’Connor looks très chic in her black dress covered in gold paillettes. She wore her dress with leggings and an orange clutch.

Frida Giannini, the Creative Director at Gucci, had this dinner party thrown in her honour by Vogue UK.

She was impeccably dressed in her own Fall 2009 collection, which included a stunning gun metal grey chain-mail tunic, and thigh high black leather boots, which as must as we’ll try, we won’t escape this Fall.

Emilia Fox was one of my favourites at this event, as she just oozes grace, and she has that classic glamour about her, that makes her one to watch on the red carpet.

Looking every inch the English rose, she arrived in a satin teal gown, which was exquisite on her.

Erin O’Connor is so beautiful and statuesque. Everything she wears looks instantly regal, even this stunning multi-coloured blue and green chiffon Gucci Spring 2009 gown.

This may have been a dinner to toast Frida, but Jasmine Guinness wore a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 gold jacket, over her sexy black gown.

I love the jacket, as it added an edge to her look, without making her look ridiculous.

VV Brown opted out of the floor-length gowns. Instead singer wore a mini T-shirt Ashish Fall 2009 dress, which was covered in sequined multi-coloured geometric prints.

Her look was completed with her trademark quiff, gladiator heels, and a pair of geeky Urkel specs.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley gives an ethereal glow wearing a silvery grey asymmetrical Grecian Gucci gown.

Lisa B was dressed in a knock-out deep red satin Gucci gown. The draping flattered Lisa’s figure, and the only accessory this beauty needed was a clutch.

Peaches Geldof tries to look grown up in her berry Gucci gown, but I’m sorry her tattoos really ruin this look for me. Plus she is strangely hunched over, in what I believe is her signature pose.

I will give her a 5 out 10 for her effort.

It doesn’t matter what her sister Pixie Geldof wears, she will always looks like she just got out of bed after a heavy night on the sauce.

Just when you think Claudia Schiffer couldn’t get more boring on the red carpet.
