“Nine” New York Premiere

You may remember I wasn’t particularly crazy about the trains on all dresses in the Chanel Fall 2009 Couture collection, but on Kate Hudson I like it.

The reason is because we’re so used to seeing Kate wearing mini sequin dresses, that this look is really refreshing on her, and I LOVE the hair.

She swapped the beachy braid for a beautiful bob.

It was a family affair as Goldie Hawn was there to support her daughter Kate.

She also brought the wow factor to the red carpet wearing a Christian Dior Spring 2008 fringed gown.

The legendary actress wore her dress with a Dennis Basso’s white mink capelet.

Fergie can do no wrong at the moment.

Whether she’s wearing a Preen mini or this gorgeous Marchesa Resort 2010 Grecian gown she continues to blow me away.

She was one of my faves on this carpet.

I love how she paired her look with silver sparkling accessories.

Madonna and Lourdes Leon arrived in Dolce & Gabbana looks – of course.

Madonna wore a very typical Dolce & Gabbana corset dress with black elbow length gloves. (yawn)

Daughter Lourdes wore a lace Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2010 skirt with a black bustier and pearl necklaces paired with Doc Martin boots and a leather jacket to toughen up her look.

Very early 80s Madonna.

We’ve been crying out for Marion Cotillard to grace the “Nine” red carpet with her presence and here she is.

Of course she didn’t let us down as she looked stunning wearing a strapless white column Dior gown, which she accessorised with long beaded Chopard necklaces and a black Judith Leiber clutch.

I would’ve preferred her without the necklaces, so we could marvel at the beautiful detail on her bodice.

Nicole Kidman’s Prada puff ball dress was accented with floral appliqués.

It wasn’t my favourite look on this red carpet, but much improved from the previous post.

Her strawberry blonde locks were swept to into a side bun with a piece framing her face.

Penelope Cruz looked gorgeous adding a burst of colour to this red carpet.

Her red satin Chanel Couture gown wrapped around her gorgeous body, with a draped detail across the front and a jeweled detail on the hip.

I’m loving the waves.

Like the rest of the cast Pen was glittering with Chopard jewels.

Naomi Watts was by far my favourite on this red carpet wearing a Marchesa sculpted sheath dress.

Factor in that divine raspberry, those beautiful fold details on her shoulders, that sexy peplum on her waist and the stunning silhouette and I’m in LOVE.

Head over heels.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen looked stylish on this star studded red carpet.

Mary-Kate opted for a black gown, but added a bit of colour with a harlequin jacket and a bright blue Maia N oversized clutch.

Ashley opted for all black barring her mustard Manolo Blahnik heels.

I loved her feathered coat which is very similar to the Topshop feather coat I’ve been cruising.

08.02.09 Best Dressed

2009 BAFTA Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed/Pretty in Pink Award
As I hoped and prayed Freida Pinto did not let us down on the red carpet tonight, in fact she surpassed my expectations.

As we predicted she did wear an Oscar de la Renta gown, from the Resort 2009 collection.

The pretty pink dress was the perfect colour, and the 18th century Fred Leighton jewels she wore were the perfect compliment.

I hope this run will never end.

Best Asymmetrical Gown Award
What is not to love about Marisa Tomei in her gorgeous shimmering Etro Spring 2009 asymmetrical gown?

The actress walked the red carpet without her favourite Fendi clutch, which is a good thing because it would not have worked with this gown, but what did work were her nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

Brave choice for such a horrible rainy day.

Best On Trend & Best Unofficial Brand Ambassador Award
Amy Adams was on trend with her electric blue RM by Roland Mouret gown.

The mermaid gown is gorgeous. Not to over the top, very understated, very elegant. As usual Amy makes a quite impact on the red carpet.

Regular readers will notices that there is a bit of trend developing with Amy. The tends to be the unofficial brand ambassador for designers for 3 gowns, then she moves on.

Oscar de la Renta for Critic’s Choice Awards, a Pre-Golden Globe party and the Golden Globes.

Giambattisa Valli for the Motion Pictures Awards Gala, the Doubt UK Screening and the SAG Awards.

Now Roland Mouret for the Oscar nominees luncheon, the Pre-BAFTA party and now the BAFTAs.

Who will she pick next?

English Rose Award
Emily Mortimer was one of the few Brits not to stick to safe black, instead she wore a grey tiered YSL Resort 2009 gown, with a snake print bodice, and a cute velvet black bow.

Unfortunately it looks like her gown got caught in the rain.

Black Again? But I Love It Award
Kate Winslet wore a black Zac Posen mermaid gown.

Yes, I am a bit disappointed that it was not as vivacious as her electric blue Narciso Rodriguez gown, but her body is so damm amazing in this dress, that you just have to love her.

Best Vintage Award
After her pink Blumarine dress, Thandie Newton had a lot to live up too.

She does not disappoint in her black strapless vintage gown with gold detailing through-out, but I am not particularly wowed either.

Lady In Red Award
Sharon Stone was ravishing in wearing a red John Galliano Spring 2009 gown.

Not a hint of animal print. I admire her restraint.

Best Re-Run Award
We have seen this Stella McCartney gown twice before on Salma Hayek and Amanda Seyfried, but Laura Bailey’s blush pink revision is gorgeous, so all is forgiven.

Best Comeback Award
It has been a while since we saw the adorable Kylie Minogue on the red carpet in the UK, and girlfriend proved that she still has it.

She wore gold heels with her spaghetti strapped black Chanel Fall 2002 Couture dress, which had an interested detailed hem.

Just OK Award
Emma Watson is surprisingly not wearing Chanel, but Temperley London, which is a welcome relief.

That embroidered neckline is very much a trademark of Temperley, so this dress doesn’t feel particularly fresh to me as I would have hoped.

Best Necklace Award
I love the youthful glow that Goldie Hawn radiates.

She wore a black satin strapless dress – that did not squash her twins – with a stunning diamond necklace.

Best Impression of Mary Poppins Award
Meryl Streep channeled her inner Mary Poppins, as she sheltered under her umbrella from the horrendous British weather.

With her all black ensemble the legendary actress wore Fred Leighton jewels and Daniel Swarovski clutch.

Best Late Comer Award
I can not believe that I these are the only two pictures of Kristin Scott Thomas on the red carpet last night, and I had to wait until the following day to find them. I guess she arrived late on the red carpet.

Kristin looked as elegant as ever in this beaded vintage-inspired gown in midnight blue. The actress decided against fussy jewelery, opting to show off her flawless neckline instead.
