Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Estelle joined many sports stars for the Pre-ESPY Dinner for Kemba Walker, which was held at STK in Hollywood, California last night.

The British singer wore a Mark + James Badgley Mischka Fall 2010 dress.

Her one-shoulder LBD with tan asymmetrical panels has an embellished flutter sleeve to add some sparkle to the dress.

Whilst the dress is just OK, the shoes are unforgivable.

Not because they are black, but because they are scuffed suede shoes which bring down her whole look.

During Awards Season, Natalie Portman was also promoting her new movie, “No Strings Attached.”

At the LA Premiere she wore a loose fitted Vena Cava ‘Electric Dreams’ long dress from the Spring 2011 collection.

Her colour-blocked halter dress with a keyhole detail was paired with black Aldo ‘Todeschi’ heels, a simple black lacquer Tiffany bangle and a black Christian Dior bag.

Estelle wore the same dress earlier this month when she attended the Heineken Red Star Access G.O.O.D. Music presented by Kanye West at Skylight One Hanson in New York City.

The British singer added a belt to the dress. That wasn’t the only let down.

Her bra is clearly visible through the keyhole detail, plus she over accessorized.

For keeping the look simple Natalie wins for me.

Natalie and Estelle’s Vena Cava dress is still available to purchase from Shopbop.com.

After featuring Janet Jackson and Thandie Newton at the “For Colored Girls” New York Premiere, here are the rest of the stunning looks which hit the red carpet.

Kerry Washington wore a charming Missoni print maxi dress with a complementary gold clutch.

I remember when I saw the Adam Spring 2011 presentation during New York Fashion Week, I said that the one piece which stood out was the red leather dress.

I guess it also stood out for Veronica Webb – who was front row at the presentation – because she wore the red leather dress last night with nude strappy sandals.

Ciara wore a Carven taffeta dress with super sexy Christian Louboutin leopard print ankle booties.

With her hair swept to one side to show off her green earrings, Tessa Thompson looked beautiful wearing a Versus Fall 2010 bustier dress with a velvet skirt which she paired with Rene Caovilla Swarovski crystal embellished sandals.

Anika Noni Rose added plenty of colour to the red carpet wearing an orange and gold embroidered dress with sexy gold strappy sandals.

I love the colour and style of Estelle’s new ‘do. This could be my Spring 2011 look.

The British singer wore a reptile print Alexander McQueen jacket with tapered leather pants, black pointy pumps and a Swarovski necklace.

Grey Goose Entertainment honoured British singer Estelle as part of its second season of ‘Rising Icons.’

The talented star joins last year’s honorees Keri Hilson, Wale, The-Dream, and Ryan Leslie.

Estelle attended the launch event in New York City last week sparkling on the red carpet wearing a Doo.Ri Fall 2010 mini dress.

Her LBD with aqua blue panels down the side was embellished with dark coloured crystals.

To lighten the mood of her look, Estelle added some fun neon pink Jimmy Choo ‘Ceasar’ platform sandals and a gold clutch.

This is a typically daring look from Estelle.

The theme for last nights “2010 amfAR New York Inspiration Gala” was ‘black tie and black leather’.

Kylie Minogue certainly read the invite.

The Australian singer wore a custom-made sexy dress by her designer pal Jean Paul Gaultier.

The sexy dress was slashed to the thigh to show off her stockings and suspenders which she paired with Zanotti heels.

The leather part came courtesy of a leather glove which wrapped around her neck from a mini handcuff.

The leather theme continued with Kylie’s second JPG look as her second dress with a white chiffon skirt, had black leather bodice, harness and leather sleeves.

Estelle was also a guest at the event which supports innovative AIDS research programs.

The Brit singer was also decked out in JPG.

She wore a Jean Paul Gaultier look which included a skirt from the Fall 2010 collection.

This skirt had a slash to the thigh with a sexy lace-up leather trim.

British singer Estelle may spend a lot of her time in the US, but she still supports UK based designers.

Earlier this week she attended “The Reuben Foundation Haiti Fundraiser” in London wearing a big bird-like creation.

Her Nathan Jenden Fall 2010 feathered dress had a distinct ethnic feel to it with the print on the bodice.  I would have loved her to have worn matching accessories.

Again it’s not quite a summery look, but it is interesting.

What brings this look down is the bikini-type straps and the green open-toe ankle boots.

Could’ve been a contender.
