Red Carpet Fashion Awards

“In Bloom By Reese Witherspoon” Launch, New York

I was starting to believe L’Wren Scott was only made for Nicole Kidman and Kyra Sedgwick.

Reese Witherspoon has worn a lot of pretty dresses promoting Avon, and this dress continues that trend.

Wearing black pumps the actress wore a pretty hot pink L’Wren Scott black printed dress from the Spring 2010 collection.

It’s the perfect ‘ladies who lunch’ frock.

Cointreau Party, Brazil

Even though Dita von Teese’s Malandrino Fall 2009 metallic dress was presented in silver, the princess of goth of course opted for the black version.

She totally picked the right colour as this gown looks amazing on her.

I love the way it drapes on the hips.

Bruce Hoeksema Cocktail Party, New York

Gwyneth Paltrow is the first celebrity to wear a dress from the recently presented RM by Roland Mouret Spring 2010 collection.

She paired her navy and gold tiger print belted dress with a paired of the Christian Louboutin for Roland Mouret heels as shown on the runway.

As always she looks fabulous to me.  I know a few of you are very much over her.

Jimmy Choo Project Pep Launch Party, London

Tamara Mellon wouldn’t be caught out without her own accessories.

For the “Jimmy Choo Project Pep Launch” at Selfridges she modeled a Jimmy Choo Char Clutch and Jimmy Choo Pep Loop sandals, whilst looking stunning wearing a red Valentino dress accented with a bow on one side.

1st Annual Guggenheim Art Awards, New York

Kylie Minogue wore a nude coloured Calvin Klein Spring 2010 dress which looked stunning against her warm complexion.

Loving the soft make-up and matching accessories.

Julianne Moore appears to be a big fan of this Calvin Klein collection, as she has worn many pieces recently.

This time she opts for a simplistic grey dress, paired with black tights, black heels and a black clutch.

Switches On The Harrods Christmas Lights, London

Dannii Minogue has an J’Aton Couture obsession because she wore two dress by the design duo last weekend, and last night she donned another one of their creations to switch on the Harrods lights.

She looks so cute. I love the ruffled detail on the shoulder.

Music Unites Fall Masquerade Gala, New York

White was the colour of the night as Kerry Washington graced this event with her flawless beauty wearing a very girly Marchesa satin strapless dress with a structured tulle overlay and embroidered empire waist.

Her sassy dress was paired with a Marchesa clutch with a crystral clasp, which complemented her black peep-toes with a diamanté embellishment.

Georgina Chapman also opted for a white Marchesa dress, but her was completely made out of feathers.

The designer also wore a ring from her recently launch Garrard collection.

Georgina Chapman is the latest guest designer for Garrard.

She follows it-girl and jewelery designer Jade Jagger who departured from the company as Creative Director in 2007.

The designer looked stunning in an electric blue strapless Marchesa strapless dress with a gathered bodice which hasn’t appeared on the runway.  See she can diversify.

Exquisite earrings and a ring from her Garrard collection complete the look.

Helena Christensen will always be one of the most beautiful women on this planet. I love how she’s working this look.

The super wore a black Marchesa mini tank dress, which incorporates the white embroidery detail from a Marchesa Spring 2010 gown we saw presented recently.

Her look is paired with black pointy heels, a Marchesa Crocodile clutch and a black Marchesa short sleeved feathered coat.

Tyra Banks would say this look is ‘fieeerrrccceeee’.

Tinsley Mortimer paired her favourite YSL Folies sandals with an onyx Notte by Marchesa bubble hemmed dress with embroidered shoulder straps

Her silver fringed clutch is from her own Samantha Thavasa collection.

Tinsley was there to view the collection, but she was also filming her reality TV show.

Hopefully it’s more interesting and less predictable than “The City”.

Becki Newton kept her look simple but chic wearing a black Notte by Marchesa dress with gold chain trims, paired with a fantastic pair of woven strappy sandals.

Flawless make-up.

Mischa Barton looks amazing in this this black one shoulder Notte by Marchesa dress with chiffon overlay and embroidered waist detail, but the shoes don’t quite do it for me.

In this picture she is showing off a Gold and White diamond bird wraparound Gerrard ring.

I’ve been waiting for what feels like forever for someone to wear something from the Prada Fall 2009 collection, since Eva Mendes wore a look from the collection back in March.

Jessica Alba has fulfilled that wish by wearing a red velvet floral dress, but what the lord gives with one hand he takes away with the other and those thick black opaques kinda dull the excitement.

Nicole Kidman has been M.I.A. on the red carpet for a long while.

She returned in her favourite designer wearing a black fitted L’Wren Scott lacquered tweed dress with red peep-toes.

At this point I’m just grateful that the dress is not white.

Remember that rather crazy phase?

The Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection keeps going strong.

This time Naomi Watts wears a black cropped jacket from said collection with a white shirt and black pants.

Georgina Chapman has been accused by many of you for not shaking things up.

Well this is the 3rd time she has worn something not directly off her runway, which will hopefully please you non-believers.

I think her dress was modified from the purple strapless Marchesa Resort 2010 dress, as it has a very similar shape.

The pops of fuschia pink are cute and sassy.

Stunning as always.

I’ve run out of nice things to say about her.

CEO of PepsiCo, Indra Nooyi hosted the event looking gorgeous wearing a Giambattista Valli Fall 2009 peacock print coat/dress.

Why celebrities haven’t worn anything from this stunning collection still baffles me.

Uber models Naomi Campbell and Iman struck a pose together.

Naomi wore an angelic white Azzedine Alaïa dress and Azzedine Alaia python & patent strappy heels, whilst Iman opted for more colour wearing a mustard pencil dress which shows that she’s still got it.

I was in the same room as both Georgina Chapman and Blake Lively and didn’t notice they were wearing the same Marchesa Spring 2009 lace shorts. It’s like Pink and Shakira all over again.

The reason I didn’t notice is because I was in a room full of breath-taking gowns.

Neither seemed to mind as they had both worn the shorts in different ways.

Georgina paired her shorts with a plain tank top, whilst Blake wore the runway embellished jacket.

It’s also quite cute that they are wearing the same Christian Louboutin’s ankle booties too.

Alexa Chung’s Heidi braids were quite appropriate to complete the gypsy feel to her look.

She wore a black Marchesa Spring 2008 dress with stunning gold embroidered with a tan Mulberry Alexa Bag and black ankle boots.

Becki Newton wore an embroidered jewel neck short sleeve Marchesa dress with beige Christian Louboutin platform heels.

The dress really sparkled under the museums lights.

Can anyone confirm this Katherine McPhee’s new hairstyle is for a movie. Because I’m struggling to believe this was by choice.

The singer gives Drew Barrymore a run for her money in the race for ‘worst hair of the week’ award whilst wearing a stunning ivory Marchesa Resort 2010 one shoulder pleated crepe dress with embroidered waist.

Gold shoes would have complemented the gold embroidery detail on her dress better in my opinion.

Emmy Rossum shows us how low the plunge on the back of her feather detailed pink duchess satin sheath Marchesa dress goes.

Gold accessories complete her look.

US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour walked the red carpet last night as the host of “The September Issue” New York premiere.

The R.J. Cutler documentary chronicles the making of the fashion bible’s 2007 September edition, which remains its biggest issue to date.

After seeing the Prada Resort 2010 collection, I was intrigued to see which piece – if any – Anna would pick from this collection.

Anna has never been scared of bold prints, so it wasn’t a surprise that she picked this interesting piece which was modified to cover her shoulders.

Beige kitten heels, a dazzling necklace and trademark bob completed the look.

Sienna Miller – the cover star of the September 2007 issue this documentary chronicles – showed off how lengthy her toned legs are wearing a blue sky Thakoon Resort 2010 strapless mini dress.

I love the texture of this dress which is cleverly draped, twisted and gathered to create volume.

A silver Bottega Ventea clutch, large chandelier earrings and gold Jimmy Choo heels complete this look.

J’Adore.

Renee Zellweger’s shortened Carolina Herrera Resort 2010 orange draped brocade dress was the perfect choice to show off her best feature – her legs.

Some of you expressed how you’re a tad bored of the Renee/Herrera collabo, but I really love how each piece is tailor-made or modified to suit Renee’s style.

If it was the same silhouette or same colour I would be bored too, but the two of them give us something new every time.

Sexy strappy heels and her trademark pout complete the look.

I will forever love Carey Mulligan for wearing my favourite dress from the Thakoon Resort 2010 collection.

I adore this colourful dress, which drapes better on the runway.  It’s like opening a packet of Starburst.

Actress Zoe Kazan combined two pieces from the Jason Wu Resort 2010 collection to create her own casual look.

I don’t like the uninspired heavy black heels with this summery look.  The runway heels to the left would have been a better choice.

You may remember Emma Watson wore this same Jason Wu Resort look when traveling between shows whilst promoting “Harry Potter”.

Shortening seems to be the new black, as Hilary Rhoda like Renee, shorten her Rachel Roy Resort 2009 dress.

Her floral dress was pair with Manolo Blahhnik white and black stitched heels.

Designers Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera arrived together.

He wore a beige suit, whilst she looked radiant wearing an orange and white floral skirt from her Resort 2010 collection, with a crisp white shirt which is very much her trademark look.

Designer Tory Burch decided against wearing a piece from her own collection opting for this gorgeous purple Narciso Rodriguez silk dress from the 2009 Pre-Fall collection.

The cap sleeve dress has a wide self-tie belt that wraps around dress, which can create Rodriguez’ signature criss cross detail.

I love the dress and the strappy heels, but I really dislike her pink feathery bag.  What a way to ruin a look.

Designer Cynthia Rowley opted for a vibrant blue shortened dress from her Fall 2009 collection.

She looked stunning wearing her dress with a blue and black embroidered belt, and Elizabeth & James elastic wedge sandals.

Georgina Chapman opted for a silver long sleeved tunic dress with sprinkles of gold embellishments, which shimmered as she walked the red carpet.

Her dress had a matching silver roped tied the waist.  Her look was complete with grey Christian Louboutin kitten heels and a matching clutch.

Vera Wang opted for a simple grey tank which she punched up with a trademark bejeweled necklace.

I particularly love her Resort 2010 asymmetrical layered skirt, which she wore with Prada Spring 2009 snake-skin heels.

Alexa Chung dress has the floaty ethereal feel of the Calvin Klein Resort 2010 collection, which I’ll guess is actually a vintage dress.

It appears Alexa still hasn’t washed her hair from the last time she stepped onto the red carpet for the “Inglourious Basterds” New York Screening earlier this week.

TRESemme and some lukewarm water. Don’t be afraid to introduce them to your hair Miss Chung.

Bee Shaffer’s lilac belted dress is divine, both in colour and style.

It shows off her legs and accentuates her curvy figure.

Designer Donna Karan and singer Cassie arrived wearing similar plunging black jumpsuits.

Donna opted for gladiator flats with her look, whilst Cassie wore platform boots.

“The September Issue” hits theaters in New York on August 28, and select cities on September 11.
