Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

The Art of Elysium held their 2nd Annual New York fundraiser titled “Bright Lights” with Versus on Friday.

The Versus with Donatella Versace and Christopher Kane greeted their many guests which included Brit singer Estelle.

She opted to wear a Versus Spring 2010 mini black dress with a metallic mesh bodice.

Her yellow clutch is a nice colour pop, but the shoes are a huge let down.

I much prefer the gladiator style boots Estelle wore when she performed at the event.

They were worn with a Versus Fall 2010 LBD.

The dress has a black satin panel and a flirty pleated skirt.

I wish Estelle had worn one of the red Versus Fall 2010 pieces on stage. It would’ve had such a massive impact.

Kristin Cavallari is too evil to wear this cute white dress. j/k

It’s actually a very cute look for her, and she doesn’t usually do cute.

I have compared the dress to the Miu Miu Spring 2008 dress, but I’m not sure if Kristin’s dress is modified or just a very good copy.  I’m leaning towards the latter.

What do you think?

Daisy Fuentes snuggled up to the man who used to be on posters all over my bedroom as a kid – Matt Goss from Bros.

Remember them?

The beautiful actress looked flawless in a peacock Tadashi Shoji halter gown with gathered waist, whilst he looked good in a 3 piece suit.

Lindsay Price was my favourite on this red carpet, as she dazzled in a strapless red Valentino gown.

Talk about owning a look.

Gorgeous.

I really like Lindsay Lohan’s LBD.

It’s the most put together she’s looked in a long while, but she looks like she just woke up.

Estelle is still on top form.

I’m loving her navy satin asymmetrical mini dress which she pairs with glittering sandals and a stack of bracelets.

I’m gonna miss Paula Abdul on American Idol. Her crazy responses were the only thing that kept me watching.

I was surprised by how great she looked at this event wearing a peachy Herve Leger gown, with a jeweled bodice.

Sharon Stone looks to be slipping down the scary slope of animal prints with her reptile print gown.

I knew it wouldn’t be long before she cracked.

Fashion Rocks was held in Brazil for the first time this year.

The event featured four international fashion designers, including Marc Jacobs, Versace, Givenchy, and Calvin Klein with live performances from Mariah Carey, Estelle, P.Diddy, Grace Jones and Ciara.

The line-up also featured four national fashion designers – Lenny, Andre Lima, Alexandre Herchcovith and Lino Vilaventura paired with four performers including Lulu Santos, Daniela Mercury, Wanessa and Ja Rule.

Donatella Versace wore 2 gowns from her recent Spring 2010 collection.

The first was a lilac strapless gown which she had modified by removing the white details on the bodice, and lowering the central split.

This colour is fabulous on her.

The second was an asymmetrical angelic white gown with silver triangle shaped embellishments.

Again the split was lowered and the cut-out detail on the side of the gown on the runway, doesn’t appear on Donatella’s gown.

This was my favourite gown of the two.

Fernanda Lima hosted the show looking amazing wearing the same red Versace Fall 2009 gown Blake Lively wore to the Emmy’s.

She looked equally, if not more spectacular in this jaw-dropping gown.

Isabeli Fontana wowed wearing a canary yellow Atelier Versace Fall 2007 halter gown.

I thought the only model who could provide this kind of jaw-dropping moment was Gisele Bundchen.

She’s back.

After months of quite boring black ensembles, Estelle was back to her colourful best wearing a very interesting futuristic Manish Arora Fall 2009 dress of yellow, orange, red maroon and black.

The textured dress was paired with a grey Fendi clutch and Christian Louboutin Calypso heels as worn by Blake Lively last week.

Fernanda Motta and Alessandra Ambrosio arrived at this event together.

Fernanda wore a black satin Versace Fall 2009 wrap dress, which is the same dress we saw on Janet Jackson recently, whilst Alessandra showed off her enviable figure in a taupe halter neck gown embellished with precious stones.

Ciara confirmed via her twitter page that she is going to be Riccardo Tisci new muse for Givenchy, so it was no surprised to see her decked out in a Givenchy Spring 2009 ensemble.

Her embellished cold-shoulder top was paired with a leather pocketed mini skirt to show-off those toned legs.
