Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Worst Dressed Award
White sequin’s. I’ve never liked white sequin’s, as they cheapen any look.

I’m a huge fan of Miranda Cosgrove, she has such a fun loving approach to the red carpet, but on this occasion her white and gold sequined Sass & Bide Pre-Fall 2009 dress really lets her down.

Biggest Let Down Award
Looking at Cameron Diaz, I have only one question. What happened to you?

I was so looking forward to seeing Cameron upstage everyone at this event, as she usually blows us away. Remember her Luella polka dot mini?

Her look included deep rinse J Brand jeans, an animal print Matthew Williamson top, and blue suede ankle Giuseppe Zanzotti boots.

De Ja Vu/Christian Siriano Does Design More Than One Dress You Know Award
I’m so tired of seeing this Christian Siriano dress in various colours and lengths on the red carpet.

Christian has produced 2 collections, CariDee English could have really picked something else.

Despite all that, it’s a great mix of colours, but I hate her shoes.

Most Blah Award
Anna Faris doesn’t seem to get it right on the red carpet. Some times she’s too cutesy, others too casual, and on this occasion, blah.

No spark, no pizazz, no personality, and we all know she has plenty of that, which is why this is such a disappointment.

It’s Just Not Working Award
I’m always rooting for Rumer Willis, I don’t know why I have such a soft spot for her.

Maybe because I know she’s trying, but it just doesn’t seen to ever work, like with this black one-shoulder patchwork geometric print Emilio Pucci dress. Great dress, but she fails to make it work for her.

She needs to take a leaf out of Coco Rocha’s book, and go back to black.

Tights? In This Heat? Award
I love Sandra Bullock’s Abaeté Fall 2009 dress. The print reminds me off a midnight starry sky, but she can’t be seriously wearing tights.

I know I go on about tights, but they totally ruins this look for me.

I Just Can’t Take You Seriously Award
I think the title sums up how I feel about Lil Mama’s look.

Just Wish It Wasn’t Black Award
Hayden Panettiere wears such a cute Ungaro Spring 2009 dress, but come on girl, it’s summer.

Something in white, nude, or pink would have shown off her Cannes glow.

The little goosebumps going up my arm, are a clear indication that Zoe Saldana will a be contender for Best Dressed Of The Week.

What’s that 3 weeks in a row? Girlfriend is on fire.

Her long sleeved Emilio Pucci Fall 2009 sequined mini dress, with a snake-like silver detail running through it, lacey cut outs, plus the first way she is posing, ensured that no one was going to upstage her on her night.

If you have a shoe fetish, I suggest you don’t look at her outstanding Brian Atwood Wicked heels, from the Fall 2009 collection.

Very wicked indeed.

Once you’ve scrolled down, one thing will stand out, Michelle Monaghan.

This is because she opted for a neon pink Versace Fall 2009 long-sleeved dress, when most others opted for black.

I love the colour, her fresh face, and her clutch. I wouldn’t have picked those black strappy sandals, but she makes them work.

Leighton Meester gave her lighter locks their red carpet debut last night.

The Gossip Girl actress wowed the crowds in a mini slate grey YSL bow back dress. The dress kinda look a tad tight, but I just love the 3 bows fastened across the back.

Her head-to-toe YSL Spring 2009 look was complete with YSL cage ankle boots.

I have the feeling that Heidi Klum is going take maternity chic to another level.

The stylist mum-to-be, wore a black flapper-style Jasmine di Milo fringed dress, which covered her growing baby bump, with black Louboutin’s, and Martin Katz jewels.

Even though Nicollette Sheridan is on trend wearing the much loved Christian Louboutin Differa sandals, why does her look seems so out-dated?

Amanda Bynes has been beamed back to 2007, when it was hot to wear a coral Hervé Léger mini bandage dress, with YSL Tribute sandals.

Geez, even Heidi Montag would frown at this look.

I’m not sure what Kristin Cavallari actually does these days, but she sure made sure she would get some attention wearing a Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2009 multi-coral mini dress.

Christian Louboutin Catenita cork sandals, with a hot pink platform completed the look.

Sophia Bush completes the trio of Hervé Léger dresses on this red carpet, and I can’t help but feel a tiny bit disappointed.

Not because of her Hervé Léger Zebra stripe dress itself, because she looks lovely in it, but because it puts her in the same category as Amanda and Kristin.

Hayden Panettiere’s looks very grown up in her black figure-hugging black pencil dress with cut-outs on the side.

I’m glad she added those bubblegum pink Louboutin’s, otherwise I may have disliked this look.

Winona Ryder makes a very rare appearance on the red carpet, channeling her usual Gothic chic, in a lacey full-skirted black dress.

One Versace dress made the cover of 3 British titles recently.

Vogue UK can take the bragging rights, as Claudia Schiffer appeared in their April 2009 issue first, wearing this metallic Versace dress on their cover.

Elle Macpherson graced the Tatler May 2009 issue, whilst the only non-model of this trio, Hayden Panettiere, wore this dress on the May 2009 cover of InStyle UK

All 3 look great, but this dress feels less predictable, and looks far better on Hayden, so she wins for me.

I take back what I said about this Alexander Wang strapless tube dress being a ‘model’ dress.

Sophia more than pulls off this look.

I like that she left her neck bare, and didn’t over accessorize this look.

She is wearing her Dior Extreme gladiator sandals again, whilst completing the look with a Chanel purse.

Lindsay Lohan sure makes this Balmain Spring 2008 strapless mini dress, with silver embellishments look incredibly tacky.

Eva Longoria goes for a sophisticated all black look.

I especially love her Armani Exchange vest, with an exaggerated bow.

Hayden Panettiere looks incredibly cute wearing a green asymmetrical ruffled dress, with tan heels, whilst showing off her A/X watch.

Kristen Bell’s laid back casual look, included an 3.1 Phillip Lim tiered ikat print tank, with khaki pants.

A long beaded necklace, and black peep-toe booties complete the look.

As I had said in a previous post, Hayden Panettiere was the first to wear this gorgeous Akika Ogawa dress, with YSL pumps.

She looked outstanding when she attended the Green Inaugural Ball in Washington back in January, although the dress is very much squashing her lady lumps.

Ashley Tisdale posed with a lot of attitude when wearing the same dress to the Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Awards.

Despite this being a re-run at a major event, Ashley wins this for me.

The Huffington Post Pre-Inaugural Ball

Hayden Panettiere wore a light two-tone pastel coloured Monique Lhuillier Spring 2009 strapless chiffon gown.

I am not sure what up with Hayden and strapless gowns, but they always seem to squash her boobs.

The colour of the gown is amazing and flatters her skin tone. She completed the look with a slick updo.

RIAA and Feeding America Inauguration Charity Ball

I don’t even know what this is? An preview of Rihanna’s 2009 Halloween costume perhaps?

What a mess.

Her Jasmine Di Milo Fall 2007 dress, looked much better on the runway.

Speaking of a mess, Courteney Cox arrived wearing a black suit, with a leather trim.

I’m thinking she went to her attic and rummage through the box that said ’80s Clothes To Be Thrown Away’.

Sadly she never got round to it.

Alicia Witt was the only shining light on a red carpet of hideousness, as he stepped out looking delightful wearing a two tone Malandrino Resort 2009 dress, which had a multi-coloured cummerbund of pailette.

She completed her look with her hair teased up in a loose updo, and a gold box clutch.

Mid Atlantic Ball

Jennifer Lopez wore a mint green one shouldered Marchesa gown when she performed at this event. It looks white under the house lights, but I assure you from other pictures it is mint green.

The dress is truly stunning with lace panels on the sides.

Jennifer has been wearing a lot of Marchesa lately, like she did when the brand first launched. It suits her so well.

Neighborhood Inaugural Ball

Singer Faith Hill wore a gorgeous black tiered Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 gown, with ruffled detailing.

Mariah Carey stuffed herself into this black velvet and lace Dolce & Gabbana off-the-shoulder gown.

Would it really hurt her to go up a size?

The Creative Coalition’s 2009 Inaugural Ball

Kerry Washington premiered a new do, as her hair was pulled back, with sweeping bangs.

The actress looked gorgeous in her couture, navy blue tulle Georges Chakra gown. The gown sparkled with Swarovski crystals.

Artist Making an Impact Pre-Inaugural Dinner

Sarah Silverman like to act the fool on the red carpet, but for once she looked really good wearing a beautiful Pamella Roland red chiffon halter gown. She scrubs up nice, when she wants to.
