Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Halle Berry historically became the first black woman to win Best Actress at the Oscars.

She makes history again today by being only the second black woman to appear on the cover of American Vogue’s September 2010 issue.

Naomi Campbell was the first. If you watched “The September Issue” documentary, you’ll remember how Anna Wintour said back in 1989 it caused “huge controversy to put a black girl on the September cover”.

Oh how times have changed. 21 years on we’re only focusing how beautiful Halle looks on the cover.

Mario Testino shot Halle wearing 6 velvet dresses by Giorgio Armani, Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang and Escada.

Velvet is synonymous with Fall, so it’s the perfect way to put as in a Fall mindset as the Fall looks hit the stores.

Halle talks about being a mum to 2-year-old daughter Nahla and her split with Nahla’s father, Gabriel Aubry.

This 726 page issue goes on sale in the US August 24.

You can read Halle’s whole interview at Vogue.com.

Here are some extracts:

On the so-called Oscar curse: “People win Oscars, and then it seems like they fall off the planet. And that’s partly because a huge expectation walks in the room and sits right down on top of your head. The moment I won the Oscar, I felt the teardown the very next day. I thought, if I’m going down, I’m going down taking chances and daring to risk. Hence …Catwoman.” Read more…

It was a so-so weekend for most on the red carpet, but Halle Berry looked sensational at the “Shanghai Bazaar Charity Gala 2010″ held in China last night.

The actress wore a breath-taking one-shoulder black organza Vera Wang custom-made gown with a nude underlay.

The gown is lightly embellished on the bodice with ruffled detail on the shoulder.

As usual the star doesn’t need many accessories to shine, just simple subtle jewels and flawless nude make-up.

This is what you call a super star.

I’m so happy to see Halle back on the red carpet.

Halle Berry was looking fabulous at the 30th Anniversary Silver Rose Gala & Auction held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California on Sunday.

The actress attended this event with Alicia Keys, Leona Lewis and Jamie Foxx to raise money for the Jenesse Center, which help families victimized by domestic violence get back on their feet.

She look outstanding wearing a mushroom coloured Gucci Fall 2010 dress.

Further proving that sexy doesn’t need to involve a plunging neckline, the pixie hair beauty paired her slashed dress with taupe Christian Louboutin Biancia pumps.

I love how Halle fills out this dress so much better than the model.

I also like how she accessorized her dress with a single gold cuff to complement the gold detail on the neckline.

A well worthy BDOTW contender.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Halle Berry on the red carpet, but she looks stunning as she arrived at the Tod’s Beverly Hills boutique opening in LA last night.

What I love about this look is that for once she’s covered up the twins.

If I was blessed with her twins I would show them off too, but I was becoming a boring predictable look for her.

On this occasion she opted for a Isabel Marant silk blouse under a black All Saints Byson vest which she paired with Helmut Lang black pants with a sheer panel running from the back to the front.

Her look was paired with a selection of silver necklaces, a studded Tod’s clutch and black peep-toes.

I’m loving the punky twist on her trademark crop and her flawless (as always) make-up.

Any another week she could’ve been a contender.

Now this is more like it.

I adore Nicole Kidman’s ivory Nina Ricci Spring 2010 bias dress with delicately placed bows.

This look is so refreshing from all the fitted dresses she’s been wearing recently.

I love the colour, her side swept bun and she appears to be make-up malfunction free.

The pictures of Mo’Nique on the red carpet weren’t very flattering as she was holding the gown by her knees to keep the hem dry, but in the press room we got at better look at her.

The ‘Best Supporting Actress’ Golden Globe winner looked sensational wearing strapless gold Reem Acra custom-made gown.

I like that she kept the neck bare as a large necklace may have over shadowed her beautiful yet simple gown.

Surprisingly I don’t hate Jennifer Aniston in this black Valentino Pre-Fall 2010 gown.

Maybe it’s because of the sexy thigh-high split, or the confidence oozing out of her, or that sultry (for her) make-up or maybe it’s the sleep deprivation kicking.

Whilst I like the dress, heels and make-up, I’m still begging for a hairstyle change.  Just a pony or updo will suffice.

Julianna Margulies was also a winner on the night, collecting the award for ‘Best Actress in a Drama’ for her role in “The Good Wife”.

She opted for an interesting Narciso Rodriguez black gown with a blood red shimmering asymmetrical bodice.

It been a long time since I was excited about Kate Winslet on the red carpet.

That midnight blue YSL gown is a great colour for her and the cut flatters her figure so beautifully.

The gown is accented with a pearl and crystal embroidery detail.

Great Kate is back.

Halle Berry wore a Kaufman Franco black silk bias cut gown with lace inserts.

She looked gorgeous but it’s the same plunging neckline and silhouette we’ve seen a million times before.

So whilst I like it, I’m also incredibly bored by it.
