Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Of all the celebrities who attended the Gucci Rue Royale Reopening Party in Paris this week, I was the least inspired by Gemma Arterton.

The British actress has wowed in Gucci before, but I’m not sure this look is on par with Jessica Alba, Diane Kruger and Olivia Wilde when it comes to giving us the wow factor.

Gemma wore a Gucci Spring 2011 sable cape linen dress with a woven belt.

Her look was paired with matching open-toe ankle boots.

I love the look for a daytime event or for a photocall, but I can’t help wishing she’d opted for a bolder look for this occasion.

Another day, another WWIB? poll featuring Gemma Arterton.

The British actress wore this breath-taking Valentino Pre-Fall 2010 strapless ballgown when she arrived on the red carpet for the “Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time” World Premiere in London back in May.

She let her embellished gown do the talking as she didn’t add many other jewels, just simple studded diamond earrings and a silver ring.

Son Ye Jin – who was your Best Dressed last week – wore the same gown to the opening ceremony of the 15th Pusan Film Festival in South Korea last week.

The Asian star also kept her look simple, but her rings were more dramatic.

It was a very hard choice, but in the end I picked Gemma mostly because she’s taller, therefore her skirt doesn’t look as crushed as Son Ye Jin’s. Also I love her red lippie.

Here we have two British stars wearing a very popular French designer.

At the Selfridges Shoe Galleries launch last month, Gemma Arterton wore a navy Balmain tweed military jacket with Isabel Marant cropped leather pants from the Fall 2010 collection.

She completed her look with Christian Louboutin pigalle heels.

Victoria Beckham wore the same zipper detailed leather pants whilst out in London recently.

She added a simple Isabel Marant sweater and spiked Louboutin’s to her look.

Gemma looks ridiculous whereas Victoria looks super chilled in her effortless wannabee rock chick look which we would expect to see on someone like Kate Moss.

Also Victoria wore the right sized pants so she wins for me.

I’m sorry to be so frank, but at the official launch of the Shoe Galleries At Selfridges in London yesterday Gemma looked ridiculous.

She opted to wear a navy Balmain tweed military jacket with cropped leather Isabel Marant pants which are both from the Fall 2010 collections.

The jacket looks costumey and the leather cropped pants look at least 2 sizes too small.

After wowing us the last few weeks with simple classic looks, this comes off ‘try hard’.

The only good think about her look is her Christian Louboutin pigalle heels.

Are you sharing my disapproval of this look or to you like it?

Gemma Arterton is still making this ‘no fuss’ chic minimalist look work for her.

She attended her “Tamara Drewe” Premiere during the 2010 Toronto Film Festival this weekend looking sensation wearing a Lanvin strapless jumpsuit.

Once again she opted for fresh barely-there make-up and no jewels with black pumps and a black clutch.

My only problem with this look is that I wish the pants had been more fitted.

Other than that this is another great look for Gemma.
