Red Carpet Fashion Awards

It was mostly an all black affair on the red carpet for the “Dolce & Gabbana’s Men’s 20th Anniversary” held during Menswear Fashion Week in Milan on Saturday.

Monica Bellucci looked like panther purring in her black satin and lace Dolce & Gabbana gown.

Peaches Geldof wore the same Dolce & Gabbana fringed dress from the Spring 2010 collection we’ve seen thrice before on the red carpet.

Penelope Cruz, Dita von Teese and Eastenders actress Emer Kenny have all worn this dress with varying levels of success.

With her hair worn up in a chic updo Rachel Weisz dazzled on the red carpet wearing a sequin strapless Dolce & Gabbana mini dress with black strappy sandals.

Juliette Binoche wore a black satin ruched Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress paired with a black crop blazer and black satin pumps.

Stefano Gabbana, Camilla Alves, Matthew McConaughey, Letizia Moratti, Giovanni Terzi, Domenico Dolce all posed together on the red carpet prior to the event.

Camilla and Letizia Moratti clearly didn’t get the all black memo.

Camilla wore a white chiffon Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress with jewel detail, whilst Letizia wore a red satin Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Margherita Missoni was my favourite on this red carpet, mixing her mustard leopard print Dolce & Gabbana dress with leopard print heels.

Eva Herzigova wore a leopard print and polka dot Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2010 ensemble.

I’m usually more excited about what Anna dello Russo wears, but I don’t feel that on this occasion.

Her fringed black Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2010 dress is very subdued for someone with such a daring fashion sense.

Other guests at the event included Morgan Freeman, Chace Crawford, and Nick McCarthy from Franz Ferdinand.

Surprisingly Madonna wasn’t there.

The supermodels have been doing there bit to add glamour to the Cannes Film Festival.

Last night Naomi Campbell attended the “de Grisogono Dinner Party” wearing a white L’Wren Scott Spring 2009 feather sequin dress which has been worn by Nicole Kidman (of course).

I adore her necklace, but wish the neckline of her dress had been lower.

At the Chopard party she wears her second Givenchy look at Cannes. This time she opted for a short sassy lace number from the Fall 2010 collection.

I’m loving her peacock feathered Sergio Rossi heels, but not as much as I’m loving the variety of wigs she has.

You shall go to the ball Adriana Karembeu.

The Slovakian model wore the ultimate ballgown to the “Biutiful” premiere this week.

Her Zuhair Murad Spring 2010 gown would have had the photogs reaching for their wide lenses.

I love the medieval princess feel, but I didn’t like her chiffon sleeves. I much prefer the gown as presented on the runway.

Eva Herzigova lives by rule. “If you got it flaunt it”, and that’s what she did at the Chopard party and whilst lounging at the Hotel Martinez Terrace this week.

Her legs go on for miles in these Pucci minis.

I love the white feathered dress, which is open at the back.

Eva was spotted arriving at the Majestic Hotel in Cannes this week wearing yet another mini dress.

Under her pink coat she wore a Dolce & Gabbana Pre-Fall 2010 multi-coloured polka dot dress, with the same Giuseppe Zanotti ankle boots she wore to the “The Princess Of Montpensier” Premiere.

Her look was paired with the Dolce & Gabbana’s Miss Sicily bag, which we all know is a huge celebrity favourite.

Before I started writing this post I yawned, because I am so over this Dolce & Gabbana lace dress from the Spring 2010 collection.

Blake Lively, Beyonce Knowles, Danielle Lineker and I’m sure many others who have slipped under the radar have worn this dress.

There are other dresses in this collection don’t you know.

Normally models like Eva Herzigova can be relied upon during Cannes if the actresses play it too safe, but the models are failing this time around if Naomi Campbell and this look is anything to go by.

A ridiculous headband, a black Ferragamo clutch and Giuseppe Zanotti ankle boots complete this rather boring look.

The Grand Palais – one of Paris’ most famous buildings – was the setting for the celebratory launch of Sonia Rykiel pour H&M.

The Palais was transformed into a Parisian fantasy land for around 2,000 guests.

Inside the glittering city it looked like a surreal theme park for adults.

The lingerie and knitwear collections were displayed on floats which emerged from a recreation of the Arc de Triomphe, with a Parisian funfair as backdrop.

The show started with Lily Cole straddling a 20ft horse head on board a float surrounded with many other model showing off the lingerie collection.

This was then followed by girls swinging out wearing lingerie and many other floats followed.

Kate Bosworth was one of the many guests.

The actress looked stunning wearing a nude Sonia Rykiel Spring 2009 dress with sequin embellishments and a large bow detail on the front.

I love the dress, but I’m not so crazy about the black satin pumps.

Eva Herzigova opted for volume, wearing a large feathered coat with a classic LB-sequined-D which is gorgeous.

The green bag works against her look and doesn’t blend that well.

The Sonia Rykiel pour H&M lingerie collection debuts in around 1,500 H&M stores worldwide from December 5, as well as the knitwear collection for women and girls, which will arrive in around 200 stores on February 20, 2010.

Can’t wait for the knitwear.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor charmed in her Elie Saab Fall 2009 black embellished dress by adding a true signature Lulu Guinness hot red lips clutch.

I love the racy red strappy heels.  Some would have stuck to safe black.

On any other week she may have been up for BDOTW.

What a way to show off your post-baby body.

Kimora Lee Simmons used to make some questionable choices on the red carpet, but since dating Djimon Hounsou she appears to have left her ghetto fabulousness behind, and is giving us pure Fabulosity – to borrow her term.

She looks stunning in a Jenny Packham shimmering gold plunging gown which show off her twins, or as Teresa Giudice from “The Housewives of New Jersey” would call them “boobies”.

I think it must be ‘Cheryl Cole Appreciation Day’ today, because firstly Beyonce Knowles wore a similar David Koma dress to the X Factor judge.

Now Kimora is wearing the same Jenny Packham Fall 2010 Bridal jeweled hair accessory which Cheryl wore on week 3 of the X Factor with her Atelier Versace white gown.

Who would have thought little Cheryl Cole was just a trend-setter.

This satin Dolce & Gabbana mermaid gown keeps popping up on the red carpet like the Dolce & Gabbana tulle gowns.

Eva Herzigova opted to wear her green version off-the-shoulder.

Unfortunately the gown sits too low for my liking.

Rihanna, Rosario Dawson and Caterina Murino have all worn this same gown.

Elizabeth Hurley is usually wears knee-length dresses or thigh-high split gowns, so this fruity tangerine above-the-knee dress is a refreshing change.

She pairs her dress with Jimmy Choo gold heels and a matching clutch.

Cipriani Restaurant

Eva Herzigova was spotted…literally…leaving Cirpriani’s restaurant in Mayfair wearing a animal print Isabel Marant Fall 2009 dress.

The supermodel wore her dress with thick tights and ankle boots.

We’ve seen this dress worn by Rachel Weisz a few months ago.

The Times BFI London Film Festival: “Fantastic Mr. Fox” Opening Gala

Cindy Crawford was the only woman to shine so brightly on this red carpet.

The super wore a black deep v-neck Roberto Cavalli gown paired with Jimmy Choo Keenan patent leather sandals.

This is how you OWN a red carpet.

George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis faded into the background for me.

I’m so bored of the “girlfriends” he just happens to have in time for a new promotional tour.

Elisabetta is wearing one of the tackiest red carpet gowns I have seen this year, obviously she’s not getting the same allowance as Clooney’s last girlfriend who stepped out in Valentino Couture.

I can’t even bring myself to look at her shoes…just hideous.

Even when she’s slightly off-duty Thandie Newton is still totally gorgeous.

Myleene Klass was reporting live from this red carpet last night wearing a LBD.

She kept herself warm wearing a navy coat which had a massive corsage.

Tatler 300th Anniversary

Peaches Geldof wears Dolce & Gabbana two nights in a row.

This time she wears a black strapless tulle dress with a voluminous skirt.

Carla Gugino and Eva Herzigova have both worn this same dress in nude.

Tara Palmer-Tomkinson may look ridiculous in her totally see-through gown with boy shorts and gold pumps, but at least its not black like everyone else.

Wembley Stadium

WAG (nickname used for footballing Wives And Girlfriends) Abigail Clancy was spotted leaving Wembley Stadium after watching her lanky boyfriend Peter Crouch score 2 goals in England’s World Cup qualifier against Belarus.

The game ended 3-0, but the real winner was Abby in the style stakes as she paired a purple Louis Vuitton scarf, with a black blazer, grey jeans, open-toe booties and an Alexander Wang Coco Duffel bag.
