Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Actress and red carpet heroine Diane Kruger first wore this asymmetrical Marchesa Resort 2010 dress in red to the “Inglourious Basterds” premiere in Sydney back in August of last year.

Diane never fails to wow me on the red carpet and this bright red mini dress suits her fair colourings so well.

She has paired this Marchesa dress with Christian Louboutin pumps and a House of Lavande Italian bracelet, which is all the accessorising this dress requires.

I would like to have seen her hair completely off her shoulders though as the having it swept sideways like this throws the look off balance.

Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman then wore this dress in black to the launch of the new designers floor at Saks back in September.

Georgina looks stunning as always and I love hows she’s teamed this LBD with purple peep toes and a similar coloured clutch.

Such a tough decision but I think this one goes to Georgina for a great choice of shoe and wearing her hair off her shoulders.

What do you think?

Georgina was the first to wear this Marchesa dress to the “White Ribbon Alliance Dinner” in New York last September.

I love this dress and think both girls did it the bare leg justice it deserves.

I particularly love the way that Georgina has teamed hers with matching pink shoes and a clutch.

The satin of her shoes really compliments the high shine of the dress.

I also like the way her hair isn’t too “done”.

Malin wore this dress to the “Couples Retreat Photocall” in Hamburg back in October.

I adore the very slightly peep toe Sergio Rossi heels she’s wearing but somehow the bronze clutch throws this off balance.

Malin looks just a bit too cutesy for me in this dress with her perfectly blow dried blonde locks.

I think that Georgina gets the biggest fashion thumbs up in this floral number.

Isabel Lucas chose this Marchesa Fall 2009 lace-frill dress for the “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” Australian premiere.

The stunning actress chose her favourite accessory – a headband – plus tights to complete a Gothic look.

Marchesa designer Georgina followed by wearing the same dress to “The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards” event with the same lace Louboutin’s which were worn on the runway.

With a fresh face and non-fuss hair Georgina’s look is the better of the two here I feel.

The dress speaks for itself without any additions like Isobel’s.

Jessica Szohr wore the blue print version of this Thakoon Spring 2010 dress to this prestigious event.

I’m glad she picked the darker colour, as I would love to see the lighter print saved for the Spring.

Strappy booties and tamed sleek straight hair complete this look.

What? No ankle boots?

Alexa Chung looks really cute wearing a red Jason Wu Spring 2010 dress with a ruffled neckline.

I love those bold red lips.  It’s very rare that we see her wearing make-up.

Ballet flats complete the look, but I’m also missing the black runway waist belt.

Cassie looked really good on this occasion.

The singer donned an off-the-shoulder black and gold striped Brian Reyes draped dress from the Spring 2010 collection.

The dress was paired with open-toe booties.

Georgina Chapman wore a black Marchesa Fall 2009 dress, which has an intricate embroidered detail all over.

The designer paired her dress with the same Christian Louboutin for Marchesa lace ankle boots as the runway model, plus a black clutch from her Spring 2010 collection.

Coco Rocha looked fierce in wearing this Rodarte Spring 2009 black and white dress on the runway, but Karen Elson softens the look by adding black pumps and bouncy curls.

Many of you hated Nicole Kidman’s last L’Wren Scott dress at the CMA’s.

On this occasion she wore a stunning ivory Lanvin tulle lace gown.

Her boobs aren’t squashed, she not too washed out, the black sash tied to the waist is adorably accented with a white rose.

Love it or hate it?

Georgina Chapman For Garrard Launch, London

Standing quite a vision in regal blue, Georgina Chapman posed at the launch of her new jewellery collection for Garrard.

Once again we see the designer rocking her own brand, however the founder of Marchesa does make a rather impressive clothes horse for this exotic design.

A mass of sequins and beads, this short sparkly number certainly gains attention, with bordering feathers softening the tough structure. Opting for simple black platforms to complement her look, Georgina keeps the rest basic too, with natural hair and just a touch of a smouldering eye on show.

Princess Beatrice attended the event wearing a Notte by Marchesa Fall 2009 piece.

Very much in-keeping with this season’s favourite trend, Beatrice knows that anything that glitters or gleams goes, and looks fantastic covered in chunky gold sequins.

The little jacket and tights that Beatrice has chosen smarten this look, showing that even though she is a Princess, Beatrice knows grown-up glamour.

“The Box” New York Premiere

Despite this RM by Roland Mouret body-con dress fitting Cameron Diaz’s form perfectly, it’s disappointing to see the normally animated and lively actress in this more muted style.

Her personality has previously been heightened by what she has worn, however here, Cameron loses something of her kinetic celebrity persona.

By dressing down in tights and adding a tame up ‘do, it further dampens things. This dress doesn’t do her justice.

“Valentino: The Last Emperor”, New York

In keeping with recent ghoulish-festivities, Daphne Guiness stepped out a few nights ago in a dark ensemble, mixing textures and shapes creatively.

The fashion-forward mum-of-three stuck with her usual flamboyant style, combining tight leather leggings, a satin bodice and a velvet cropped jacket.

Stepping out in Nina Ricci’s lavish Fall 2009 boot, Daphne doesn’t disappoint as an example of someone unafraid to experiment with fashion, fully confident in her stride.

Socialite Lauren Remington Platt was spotted wearing this gorgeous Julien Macdonald dress recently, a garment taken from the designer’s Spring 2010 collection.

This same dress was placed on our Wish List page not long ago for starlet Cheryl Cole.

The candy-colours fused with figure-hugging fabric create a piece that is sweet and girly but with a flirtatious, sexy edge.

CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists Dinner, LA

Stunning Diane Kruger looks effortlessly chic in this asymmetric Chloe Fall 2009 jumpsuit.

Belted, to cinch her waist and showing just a peep of skin, the actress needn’t do anything else to this fabulous piece.

She kept her hair and make-up basic to achieve a flawless example of great style.
