Runway To 41st NAACP Image Awards – Garcelle Beauvais In Pamella Roland

Most Casual Award
Garcelle Beauvais arrived at the 41st NAACP Image Awards looking very casual in comparison to everyone else.

She opted for a Pamella Roland Spring 2009 cobalt blue one shoulder dress with sash tied to the waist.

Although the look is casual, it not too casual to say she didn’t make an effort.

With a beautiful face like Garcelle’s, she can get away with wearing just about anything.

The actress paired her look with a silver Jimmy Choo Private sandals.

Runway To “Valentine’s Day” LA Premiere – Garcelle Beauvais In Versace

It’s an oldie, but a goodie.

Garcelle Beauvais shows that you can’t keep a good dress locked in the archives when you have a body that can do this much justice to it.

The mother of 3 – yes 3 – looked outstanding walking the red carpet at the “Valentine’s Day” LA Premiere last night.

She looked sexy wore a navy PVC strapless Versace Fall 2008 dress with a fold detail on one hip.

Her dress is paired with Givenchy studded heels from the Fall 2009 collection.

Head-to-toe she looks pretty darn amazing to me.

Jimmy Choo For H&M Collection Party

11 days and counting until the H&M for Jimmy Choo collection hits stores, but the stars were out to celebrate the collection in LA last night.

Hayden Panettiere probably had my favourite head-to-toe look pairing a Jimmy Choo for H&M sequined zipped black cardigan, with leather pants and a zebra printed bag with studded details from the same collection.

Olivia Wilde wore a black long sleeved Jimmy Choo for H&M dress which is covered in rhinestones.

She picked a perfect pair of heels from the same collection which were also embellished, but it’s her croc Jimmy Choo for H&M clutch I’m lusting over.

I almost cried when I saw Garcelle Beauvais on this red carpet, because I have been cruising H&M Regents Street, Oxford Circus and Brent Cross looking for this Holiday 2009 black long sleeved dress for a while to no avail.

It looks stunning on Garcelle as she paired her dress with a pair of strappy high heels.

I wonder how Tamara Mellon felt when she saw Paris Hilton arrive wearing Louboutin’s.

Paris did look hot pairing the black Jimmy Choo for H&M jumpsuit with a hot pink clutch from the came collection.

The Jimmy Choo Kase oval clutch is still a celebrity favourite on the red carpet.

I can’t believe the jumpsuit is only £39.99.  It’s just be added to my wish list.

Sister Nicky Hilton opted for a batwing sleeved Jimmy Choo for H&M beaded dress which shimmered on the red carpet.

Pairing her dress with silver strappy sandals, Nicky also carried the same starred croc clutch as Olivia.

The ankle boot trend was alive on this red carpet as Rashida Jones paired her Jimmy Choo for H&M grey open-toe and studded heels, with a black dress and a biker jacket.

She also fell in love with Hayden’s zebra print clutch.

Maggie Grace was just that….graceful on this red carpet.

Her ivory dress was accented with black accessories including black patent Jimmy Choo for H&M strappy heels which are number one on my wish list.

M.I.A. can usually be too crazy for my tastes, but on this occasion I love what she is wearing.

She paired Jean-Charles de Castelbajac Spring 2010 blue chiffon blouse embellished in sequins with a shark print motif, with black leggings.

Thigh high Jimmy Choo for H&M boots complete the look.

Precious Screening At 2009 AFI FEST

What a difference a decent dress can makes to Mariah Carey, as she has a tendency to want to wear very tight gowns that can make her look very trashy.

On this occasion she wore a Zac Posen Resort 2008 black mermaid gown and I think this is the best we have ever seen her, despite the fact that the gown has already been worn on the red carpet earlier this year.

Hair and make-up are fabulous, and she doesn’t go overboard with the bling.

BDOTW contender for sure.

Paula Patton has great legs, so she shortened her Bottega Veneta corseted dress to show them off and this modification works really well for her.

I’m not as excited about her necklace, but I do love her Jimmy Choo ‘Revere’ strappy sandals.

I love Mary J Blige, but I’m not so crazy about her Emillio Pucci Resort 2010 gown as it’s doing nothing for her.

Olivia Wilde opted for a white RM by Roland Mouret Scirocco crepe pencil dress with an asymmetric neckline and cap sleeves.

Nude make-up and accessories complete this look.

Garcelle Beauvais looks incredible wearing a red hot asymmetrical dress with Christian Louboutin glittery peep-toes.

Mo’Nique and her husband Sidney Hicks walked the red carpet together as she glowed wearing a gold shimmering strapless dress.

InStyle Magazine’s Summer Soiree

I don’t think I have ever said this before in reference to Ashlee Simpson, but I LOVE what she is wearing.

Usually her look has a “I Wannabe In The Band” type of vibe to it, but here she channels a very cute, feminine summery look that I just can’t get enough of.

Her strapless shimmering champagne coloured Jill Stuart playsuit is so chic, which she pairs with pearls, a white Dolce & Gabbana clutch and grey Brian Atwood heels.

For me the best dressed at this event.

Katie Cassidy wore a modified Balenciaga leopard print dress from the Fall 2009 collection.

I love the draping detail around the hips defining the waist, with her bold multi-coloured clutch and silver strappy heels. I’m really happy black pumps are not in this picture.

I don’t know who Yvonne Strahovski is, but I knew it only took me 2 seconds to fall in love with her cute ensemble.

Her Camilla & Marc Spring 2008 striped blazer with her ivory skirt and blood red shoes has a Ralph Lauren feel to it.

Love it.

Jessica Stroup shows a bit of her sassy side wearing a shortened black strapless Rachel Roy Fall 2009 dress with lace panels.

She paired her dress with Stella McCartney black heels and a matching Sergio Rossi clutch.

I’ve loving how her bob is constantly evolving. I can barely remember how she looked with longer hair.

Jessica is neck and neck with Ashley Greene as my favourite red carpet newbie this year.

I go back and forth with everyone who wears Herve Leger. I know many of you wish these bandages dresses were burned, but some do look great.

This isn’t one of those times. Eliza Dushku is a busty lady and this type of dress doesn’t flatter.

I preferred this Herve Leger armor-trim dress on the runway with one strap rather than two, but I do love the YSL tribute sandals which complement the dress well.

Eliza also carried a bright colourful clutch.

“Lost” actress Emilie de Ravin has been MIA from the red carpet for a long while, but she makes a spectacular return wearing a beautiful ivory lace Max Azria Fall 2009 mini dress.

The runway dress is styled have more of a tougher edge, but Emile’s fully lined version appears softer although she added a studded belt to prevent her look from being too sickly sweet.

Like Alexa Chung, Cat Deeley is flying the flag for us Brits in the US but her chic style is more to my liking.

Cat wore British brands via her a white crochet Jaeger dress paired with tan Mulberry sandals.

Our English rose glows so beautifully, with clean golden locks.

Jennifer Morrison opted for a strapless orange Sonia Rykiel dress with a folded neckline and a voluminous skirt.

I love the bright colour and the cute braided hairstyle.

She pairs her look with a Raven Kauffman Couture clutch.

Miranda Cosgrove has such an infectious smile it’s hard not to love her.

The actress walked the red carpet wearing a Vena Cava Narthex tiered dress.

The brushstroke-print tiers on the bodice and hem adds a touch of colour to the cream sleeveless dress.

Dania Ramirez opted for a white Dolce & Gabbana trademark strapless bustier dress with a eyelet skirt and bright yellow heels.

Krysten Ritter wore red strappy sandals with her midnight blue Proenza Schouler quilted bustier dress.

The dress has a quilted silk charmeuse bustier with perfectly complements the voluminous pleated silk faille skirt.

Sanaa Lathan looked radiant wearing a Tadashi Shoji Fall 2009 hyacinth print chiffon one-shoulder dress.

Jordana Brewster’s Reem Acra Fall 2009 gold leaf jacquard halter dress with black belt, ensure she stood out amongst everyone else who opted for a more summery look.

Garcelle Beauvais opted for a full-length one-shouldered pale pink dress with a coral floral print.

She paired her dress with gold, a tan clutch and coral hooped earrings.

Maggie Grace is always so graceful.

I love her one-shouldered dress with a Dries van Noten Spring 2009-esqe mosaic print.

I’m really not keen on Shenae Grimes’ make-up, but her navy zipper trimmed Isabel Lu dress is cute.

Her look is paired with Miu Miu heels and a Kotour clutch.

Radha Mitchell wore a floaty floral vintage Cardinali dress and vintage KJL bangle from Decades Inc., paired with a Bottega Veneta clutch.

The white sunglasses and wedges add to the summery look she was going for.

Jessica Lucas wore a beautiful emerald one-shouldered Jay Godfrey Resort 2010 dress with a black waistband.

The “Melrose Place” actress accessorized with black pumps, a black clutch and a Swarovski bracelet.

The fashion roller coaster that is Lynn Collins takes another nose dive.

Although I do like the dress and the bright pink lips, the rest of the look feels alien the dress.

The hair is really granny-ifed and the Jeffrey Campbell Potion Ankle Boots – which are very similar to the Opening Ceremony boots – are very rock chick making this look too busy for me.
