Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Tonight was definitely a night for couture gowns, and this is why I love Cannes Film Festival.

Elizabeth Banks looks outstanding wearing a one-shouldered Armani Privé Spring 2009 red gown.

She gives this gown an old Hollywood feel with the marcel waves, and the long flowing train.

Normally mounds of material attached to a gown icks me, this time I like it, and Elizabeth shows of the gown so perfectly.

Best Dressed of the Week is going to be tough.

I know many of you will hate the maroon Haider Ackermann Fall 2009 ensemble Tilda Swinton is wearing, but I love it, especially the colour and that gorgeous silhouette it gives her.

She’s like a gazelle, so interesting to look at, and so elegantly statuesque.

Tilda usually works with designers directly, so it wouldn’t be a surprised if they worked together on this modified look.

Isabelle Huppert may have been the most casual at the photocall earlier in the day, but tonight she looked very glamourous wearing a nude Armani Privé Spring 2009 gown, with an embroidered overlay, which was embellished with jewels.

She kept her neck bare, but she did accessorize with silver bracelets.

Robin Penn Wright continues her red carpet run without a hint of black.

This platinum silver metallic Elie Saab Fall 2007 Couture off-the-shoulder draped gown is divine.

I see her getting better and better.

Asia Argento wore a Armani Privé Spring 2009 Asian print strapless bell-shaped gown.

For me Asia struggles to pull this look off. I don’t like her hair with this gown, and the runway shoes look much better on the runway.

Model Eugenia Silva looks gorgeous in her black and grey checked Armani Privé Spring 2008 gown, with a rise and fall hem.

I’m not particularly crazy about this gown, because Milla Jovovich wore a modified version of this gown to the same festival last year, so I feel like I have seen it before.

From the top of her updo, to the hem of her Alberta Ferretti gown, Alessia Piovan is total perfection.

She has such elegance, the petrol blue is striking, and those earrings are divine.

Aishwarya Rai, like Elizabeth Banks, wore a gown with stunning train.

The Indian actress glowed in her white strapless Roberto Cavalli gown with a ruffled tiered skirt.

I’m not crazy about her hair style, but I do like her red bejewled Swarovski box clutch, and those pearl drop earrings.

I had high hopes for Shu Qi, but this teal strapless Roberto Cavalli gown is a tad boring compared to the others.

Diane Kruger was the Best Dressed at this event wearing a Marchesa Fall 2009 asymmetrical dress.

She’s beautiful, but the dress is exquisite. I love the feathered flower details cascading down the shoulder, and on the skirt of this lilac tulle draped dress.

I love how her hair is pulled back, so we get to see the stunning details on her dress.

The actress completes her look with Fendi bow-front peep-toes, and an Alexander McQueen box clutch.

This is the first Runway to Red Carpet I’ve done using my own runway picture. I took the picture of the model when I attended the Marchesa Fall 2009 presentation back in February during New York Fashion Week.


There was a time when Emmy Rossum was forever the prom-queen, but this delicate baby blue Christian Dior Resort 2009 gown is simply perfect for the occasion.

The breath-taking tiered gown, with an embellished waist band is so ethereal, so dreamy, and so magical.

Again I’m loving the hair pulled back with a single braid, and the icy accessories compliment the gown so well.


I don’t know what I am lusting over more. Joy Bryant’s Zac Posen Fall 2009 floaty floral dress, or her metallic ankle strap heels from the same collection.

Does this woman ever have a day off looking fabulous? This is just so easy for her, and she’s still not wearing any make-up on the red carpet.


Spanish supermodel Eugenia Silva sparkled in her golden sequined Giorgio Armani Spring 2009 gown.

When you are this beautiful, you don’t need many accessories, just a gorgeous dress, and a megawatt smile.


The only watchable thing about The City is Olivia Palermo, and her bitchy evil ways. What I can’t bare to look at, is her in this Zac Posen gown.

Talk about unflattering. There are so many dresses that would have worked from the Zac Posen Spring 2009 collection, but she picked a dress which makes her look like a kid playing dress up in mummy’s clothes.


Socialite Poppy Delevigne wore a taupe flapper style Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 dress, which has also been worn by Shenae Grimes and Mischa Barton.

Poppy’s version is modified from the runway, with a plunging-neckline making it much sexier.

Her look was completed with a leather biker jacket, and a pair of lavender Jimmy Choo satin diamante platform sandals.


Rachel Roy looks chic in a coral long-sleeved dress, which of course is her own design.

I just love how those turquoise earrings pop.


OK, the red hair was cute at first, but I am wishing Coco Rocha’s would return to her dark roots. I really dislike the disheveled way she is styled here.

I’m equally not enthused about her black and white geometric print Zac Posen Spring 2009 dress. It’s not an easy dress to pull off, and I think Coco fails terribly.


I’m not against fur like the stole Drew Barrymore wore yesterday, but when it looks like an animals tail, like Maggie Rizer’s, it gives me the creeps.

What I don’t understand is why the stole in the first instance? It’s wrapped around Maggie in the place where the most detail of this Emanuel Ungaro Fall 2008 gown is.


Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos looked delightful in this one-shouldered lavender print Emanuel Ungaro Resort 2009 gown.
