Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

Kerry Washington’s Marchesa Spring 2010 gown with a flared hem and a white corsage detail is gorgeous, but I’m not quite getting the feeling that Kerry is owning it.

She looks a little lost in this gown, which is very unlike her.

It’s like she’s not feeling it at all.

Her look is paired with a Marchesa crocodile clutch which is also from the Spring 2010 collection.

Iman continues wow me time after time and this is no exception.

The supermodel wore a black sequined Thakoon Fall 2009 one-shouldered belted dress which is too spectacular for words.

I adore the draping and the tulle bow detail which sits on her shoulder.

Her sleek bob and smoky make-up complete this perfect look.

As beautiful as Halle Berry is this slashed black Kaufman Franco sequin dress, it looks too tight around her bust which really puts me off this look.

Paula Patton adds a touch of colour via her long sleeved fitted dress which she pairs with a deep red clutch and gladiator sandals.

Not something one would expect at a ball, but I do love this dress.

My biggest problem with Estelle’s look is that she looks so uncomfortable.

Between the tie and the shirt dress button up to the top, she looks so restricted.

WOW.

This has to be the best Serena Williams has looked in a long while. I love the hair and make-up especially.

The tennis ace wore a one shoulder mini Gucci Fall 2009 dress covered in green and black crystals, with a striped pattern going across it.

She looks sexy, confident and power.

I hope I can squeeze this onto the BDOTW poll.

Unfortunately I think Alicia Keys’ black sleeveless zip Gucci Resort 2010 dress fails to flatter.

The dress looks much better with the belt, the dress is otherwise too plain without it, even with the ridiculous spikey thing on her wrist.

I saw Estelle many times around New York and each time she wore black.

Estelle use to wow us with daring designs and bold colours.

Has her stateside move muted her style?

Her Gucci Fall 2009 ensemble includes a black crystals sleeveless top which she belted with black pants.

Mary J. Blige keeps her look very simple wearing a no-frills black v-neck jersey dress with flute sleeve and black patent belt.

She completes the look with black patent booties and a black python envelope clutch.

Only Serena shines for me at this event.

Not that many other people other than Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were noticed on the red carpet at the “Inglourious Basterds” Premiere during Cannes Film Festival, but Isabelle Huppert attend the premiere.

The fashion rebel of the Cannes jury members wore a black liquid tar futuristic Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 dress, with a black blazer, sheer tights and platform heels from the same collection.

Estelle wore the same dress recently with pink Alexander McQueen heels to the “Louis Vuitton Celebrates The 40th Anniversary Of The Lunar Landing” event in New York.

As much as I dislike her tights, I prefer Isabelle’s overall look. She took an edgy piece no one would have dared to think she would wear and make it look very chic and sophisticated.
