Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

For once I don’t smell any desperation with Cassie’s look, and I’m just grateful she’s wearing a bra under her sheer top.

The wannabee style maven wore a black and green Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 tulip skirt with gold Christian Louboutin open toe booties.

The only thing I’m not liking are the bubblegum pink nails as they’re distracting.

When this Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 dress was presented it was labeled the ‘bin-liner’ dress, and I was sure no one would be brave enough to wear it on the red carpet.

I’ve been proved wrong for the second time, as Estelle looked pretty damn fierce in her dress.

The only thing needed with this dress were a pair of statement heels so her stand-out fuchsia pink Alexander McQueen heart peep-toe heels were a perfect choice.

Whitney Port is very much starting to dress like a sophisticated New Yorker. Gone is the boho style she loved for so long.

“The City” star was back in town after a break from filming and she looks quite breath-taking wearing a LBD from the Rachel Comey Spring 2009 collection.

The dress has cut-out sides and peplum on the hips.

It looks like she has been hanging out with Olivia Palmero too much, as her hair has been styled in Olivia favourite look.

A stunning pearl Erickson Beamon necklace and Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toes completed this fabulous look.

“Gossip Girl” actress Jessica Szohr wore a cute and girlie lace mini dress from the Gossip Girl inspired Anna Sui for Target collection, but she toughened up her look with a military Temperley London jacket and chunky jewelery.

Like everyone else who wore at least one thing from LV, Jessica opted for the Fall 2009 platform heels.

There’s lot going on with the mix of patterns but I quite like this look.

Miranda Kerr embraced summer wearing a sleeveless satin dress with oversized ruffles.

She teamed her dress with black ankle-strap peep-toe heels and a gold Louis Vuitton African Queen clutch.

2009 BET Awards

Most Predictable Award
Their would’ve been no prizes for guessing that Beyonce Knowles would have worn Balmain to this event, as she’s worn so many Balmain pieces both on and off the red carpet.

She did pick a very colourful interesting piece with a swirling sequin pattern and a jagged hem.

I love the dress and the playful hoop earrings, but the hair I’m not fond of.

Worst Re-Run Award
Letoya Luckett wore a lace, crystal embellished, zipper dress from the Balmain Fall 2008 dress which we’ve already seen on the red carpet.

She looks good in the dress, but those clunky gold Alejandro Ingelmo clown heels just ruin the look.

Sticky But Sweet Award
Leather on a hot sunny day?

I’m getting hot just looking at Ciara, but her ruched maroon leather Cynthia Steffe Fall 2009 dress does look amazing on her, plus I love the ruffled detail.

The singer kept both her accessories and make-up light and neutral.

Best Dressed Award
Alicia Keys really stood out in her Moroccan inspired embellished mini Jenny Packham dress, and her larger-than-life curly ‘do.

The singer completed her look with Christian Louboutin Spartenvol Strass 100 sandals and a matching nude clutch.

Best Minimalist Award
Whilst everyone seemed to be opting for lavish embellished pieces, Zoe Saldana looked stunning wearing a white one-sleeved Calvin Klein dress with a cut-out detail on the hip and a daring slash to the thigh.

Brian Atwood heels completed the look.

Most Ridiculous Award
In the attempt to grab headlines Melody Thornton comes of looking ridiculous in her Alexander McQueen dress.

This ombre fringed dress with a nude body-stocking would be great as a stage costume, but on the red carpet it just doesn’t work.

The asymmetrical fringed details don’t cover enough of the body-stocking leaving her exposed.

She really didn’t think her look through.

Most Safe Award
I’m really not liking Taraji P. Henson mullet, but I do love the elegant black Kaufman Franco one-sleeved gown with leather strapped detail on the back.

The unfortunately thing here is that the backless nature of the gown reveals her lower back tattoo.

I would’ve preferred her to wear something funkier for this occasion.

Trying WAY Too Hard Award
Cassie used to be so sweet, so this harder image to rival Rihanna just doesn’t work for me.

It’s so false from the hair cut to the peek-a-boo Mark Fast knit dress to the Giuseppe Zanotti fold-over booties

Screams wannabee.

Best Super Hero Award
Singer Keri Hilson channels her inner Wonder Woman wearing a black bustier dress adorned with multi-coloured stars and other interesting shapes.

Her look was a little more risky than the others which made her stand out.

She could have easily over done her look with lots of bling, but she knows her statement dress should do all the talking.

Casadei black satin pumps completes this look.

Best Heels Award
Amerie opted for a LWD with Alexander McQueen peep-toe booties.

Best Homage Award
Estelle paid homage to the late Michael Jackson by wearing a single white glove with her denim tiered Acne baroque peplum dress.

I love the cute nature of this dress with the contrasting silver spiked earrings.

Just OK Award
Actress Keke Palmer wore an embellished dress with sparkled in the LA sunshine.

Most Original Award
Tyra Banks could have been predictable and worn  Balmain or slinky dress instead she tired something new wearing a menswear-inspired satin ensemble.

I wouldn’t have thought Tyra could pull off an androgynous look but she totally works it.

Her look includes midnight blue satin skinny pants, a dove grey vest and satin pussy bow blouse, with suede Trib Two pumps.

Neutral make up and simply styled hair make this look work.
