Hollywood Life’s 6th Annual Hollywood Style Awards

Joseph Altuzarra is only in his second season but stars like Paula Patton and Kim Kardashian are putting his label firmly on the map.

I just LOVE how Kim’s curves fill every inch of this white Altuzarra Fall 2009 dress, making it almost look like a totally different dress from the runway.

I would sooner buy it after seeing it on her, than the runway model.

The sexy star pairs her winter white dress with nude Brian Atwood pumps and a snake skin print clutch.

Thank god she’s back to her natural hair colour.

Sophia Bush along with Kim puts herself in contention for BDOTW.

As I said last week Sophia is back, and this sexy lace turtleneck Max Azria Fall 2009 mini dress shows how.

She looks sexy, a bit edgy, yet still the sophisticated Sophia we all know and love.

Cheryl Burke opted to modify her Gustavo Cadile Fall 2009 mini dress into a strapless dress.

I think this maroon dress with the embellished ribbon benefits from the modification, as Cheryl is simply glowing.

Now this is how I like to see Lauren Conrad.

Wearing something young, fun and COLOURFUL.

Her Mara Hoffman Spring 2010 floral print dress deserved some better shoes, but I will just have to live with the fact that Hollywood loves black pumps.

This look is also one of my favourites from this event.

Hayden Panettiere wore a lavender mini Dennis Basso Spring 2010 dress with draped hips. I love the shape and her taupe accessories which include Bally peep toes, Lauren Merkin “Eve” clutch in glitter python.

Katie Cassidy knows how to look sexy without looking trashy.

My mini Charlize Theron looked stunning wearing a poufy sleeved mini dress which revealed her sexy back, and her winged tattoo.

I love the dress, the shoes and the clutch, but I’m not so crazy about the hair.

It may not be as colourful as I would like, but Selena Gomez looks stunning wearing this Notte by Marchesa off shoulder stretch crepe dress with ruffle sleeves.

It’s a grown up look, but not a boring look for the young actress.

With their trademark platium blonde ‘do’s Kelly Osbourne and DJ Luke Worrall couldn’t keep their eyes off each other as they walked the red carpet.

She wore a black and white ensemble with a jeweled neckline, paired with metallic silver Trib Two’s and orange nail polish.

It’s the child I feel sorry for. Pamela Anderson should know better.

What the fudge is she wearing?  Any why are their safety pins holding her dress together?  Like this look wasn’t tragic enough.

Social Events Of The Week

MusiCares, Atlantic City

Nicky Hilton celebrated her 26th birthday this weekend in Atlantic City.

Before blowing out her candles, she walked the red carpet wearing a Christoper Kane for Topshop black dress.

The LBD has cut-out details, and is covered in grommets which appear on many of the pieces from the Christopher Kane for Topshop collection.

Taking a rare night off wearing her favourite Christian Louboutin Very Prive studded heels, she opted for a pair of Christian Louboutin Candy stud pumps.

“Make Time for CHANGE” campaign, New York

Jennifer Garner opted for a magenta RM by Roland Mouret Brise Noir dress, which is similar but not the same as dress which Cynthia Nixon wore on the Sex And The City set recently.

Surrogates LA, Premiere

Radha Mitchell’s body looks amazing in her one-sleeved Costume National Fall 2009 LBD.  She reminds me that I haven’t been to the gym in 3 weeks.

I love the texture of her dress and the pointy shoulders.

She pairs her dress with Swarovski jewelry and Casadei silver heels.

Elizabeth Banks’ Farah Angsana Fall 2009 silver dress is beautiful with it beaded cap sleeves and bow belt.

I love everything about this look including the bow heels, but I prefer Elizabeth Banks with lighter locks.

Maxim Celebrates Audrina Patridge’s October Cover, LA

Audrina Patridge also wore a dress from Farah Angsana’s Fall 2009 collection.

She looked flawless in her modified racy red mini dress, which she paired with a sparkling Daniel Swarovski clutch and Alexander McQueen strappy sandals.

Wonderbra By Dita Von Teese Launch, Milan

Dita von Teese is wearing the same style Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2009 dress which we saw on Christian Applegate earlier.

The difference is obviously the colour and Dita’s dress has polka dots on the blouse.

Macy’s Passport Gala 2009, LA

AnnaLynne McCord looked sexy wearing a nude Topshop one-sleeved dress with an embellished floral detail on the shoulder.

She wore her dress with purple suede pumps, a grey clutch and a selection of bangles.

Judith Leiber Rodeo Drive Store Opening, LA

Katie Cassidy continues to impress.

This time she wears an olive green Yigal Azrouel one-sleeved jersey dress, with blue Brian Atwood heels and of course a Judith Leiber clutch.

Also carrying a Judith Leiber clutch was Ginnifer Goodwin, who wore a navy Camilla & Marc Dylan trench coat as a dress, paired with Stella McCartney heels.

Opening of Renaissance NY Hotel 57, New York

Becki Newton also opted for Camilla & Marc for her red carpet appearance.

The ‘Ugly Betty’ actress wore a cute black and gold bustier dress with her favourite Jimmy Choo Karina studded shoe-boots, paired with a stack of gold bracelets.

Neutrogena Fresh Faces of Music, LA

I love Hayden Panettiere’s strapless fitted dress, but as we have seen many times before the dress is too tight around her bust.

Her look is completed with Sergio Rossi red snakeskin peep-toes, and a Christian Louboutin clutch.

Vanessa Hudgens wore a Camilla and Marc Aven nude leather dress, with silver heels.

Guests Arrive For Khloe Kardashian And Lamar Odom’s Wedding, LA

Only the publicity hungry Kardashian’s can turn a wedding into a red carpet event.

Kelly Osbourne who is apparently friendly enough with the Kardashian’s to be invited to Khloe’s wedding wore a black and white printed Preen Lightening dress, with black heels.

Adrienne Bailon looked stunning wearing an electric blue strapless BCBG Max Azria gown.

Brittny Gastineau arrived wearing a beautiful flowing maroon gown, whilst LaLa Vazquez opted for a very sexy Dolce & Gabbana ruched two-tone dress with Christian Louboutin Archidisco T-strap sandals

2009 Emmy Awards – Ladies In Red

It hard to see in this picture but Debra Messing’s ruby red jersey one shoulder draped column gown was encrusted with Swarovski crystals, which sparkled as she walked the red carpet.

She looked amazing as she added Lorraine Schwartz jewels to her outstanding look.

Hayden Panettiere wore a J. Mendel Resort 2010 gown with Fred Leighton. Her gold Judith Leiber clutch stood out, as did her necklace.

Marc Bouwer is known for his bedazzling gowns and this is what Anna Torv picked for her red carpet moment.

Jennifer Morrison wore a simple red Calvin Klein dress with an asymmetrical hem paired with Cartier jewels.

Sigourney Weaver is usually guaranteed for the worst dressed list, but she glows in her stunning one-shoulder David Meister gown.

Blake Lively in Versace makes up the list of ladies who wore red on the night.

Who Wore Zuhair Murad Better? Hayden Panettiere or Audrina Patridge

Do you think Hayden Panettiere chuckled when she saw Audrina Patridge wearing the same ruched Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 strapless dress she’d previous worn last night at the Teen Choice Awards?

Hayden wore the dress to a party during Comic Con with black Louboutin heels and carried a shimmering clutch.

Audrina Patridge teamed her dress with a matching crocodile clutch and turquoise Courtney Crawford heels.

Both ladies look great, but I’ll give this win to Audrina because I love her heels and her beaded necklace which makes the look more interesting.

10.08.09 Best Dressed

2009 Teen Choice Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
Alexis Bledel maybe the surprise choice for Best Dressed, but she was totally captivating wearing a stunning blue ‘Opening Ceremony’ dress with a lace yoke and hem which made her blue eyes sparkle.

Her look was paired with Loeffler Randall Genevieve asymmetrical zip sandals.

Risk That Paid Off Award
It seems that Leighton Meester is doing her best to totally separate herself from her “Gossip Girl” character, which is why we are getting edgier looks from her.

The actress opted for a chic black and white striped Louis Vuitton mini dress with a layered skirt which could have gone horrible wrong, but she works it well.

She paired her dress with red Brian Atwood heels which are to die for.

Best White Award
It’s not often we see the sexy side of Jordana Brewster.

I think it’s the power of her white Herve Leger Resort 2010 bandage dress which brought it out in her.

As always, I would have preferred a different colour heel to her black Jimmy Choo Billie Lizard print sandals.

Best Rock Chick Award
Please don’t be surprised that Kristen Stewart is on this list. This may not be to everyone’s liking, but at least Kristen isn’t trying to be someone she’s not.

With terrible mullet forced upon her for her upcoming movie “The Runaways”, I think she makes the best of a bad hair day wearing an edgy Rock & Republic Fall 2009 plunging v-neck dress with a spiked skirt and Jerome C. Rousseau booties.

She tones down the uber sexy dress with a white tank top.

Rihanna will be kicking herself that she didn’t see this first.

Best Brand Ambassador Award
Nikki Reed was flying the flag for Miu Miu wearing a modified dress from their Fall 2009 collection, with a studded Miu Miu clutch and Miu Miu suede cut-out sandals.

I love the modified dress on her as it’s more youthful than the runway dress.

I can picture the runway version being worn by Rachel Weisz or Jennifer Connelly.

Best Re-Run Award
I’m instantly drawn to Audrina Patridge’s Courtney Crawford turquoise patent leather platform pumps, but her purple Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 strapless ruched dress is equally dazzling.

You may remember that Hayden Panettiere wore this same dress recently during “Comic Con”.

Best Embellishments Awards
Emma Roberts’ Monique Lhuillier Resort 2009 white mini dress has an exquisite embellished neckline, which could be easily mistaken for statement necklace.

As always she paired her pretty dress with Brian Atwood black booties.

Best Legs Award
Fergie puts her best foot forward wearing a cute Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 mini dress covered with multi-coloured sequins.

I’m glad she didn’t opt for a boring LDB, but a sexy LBD with some pizazz.

I would have preferred the runway heels though, hers feel really heavy.

Simple Yet Stunning Award
Jennifer Morrison can do flashy, but she’s at her best when she keeps things simple.

The actress looks divine wearing a mint green Missoni Resort 2010 dress with a silver box clutch.

Wish Come True Award
A few years ago I was longing for Vanessa Hudgens to wear a major label and here she is wearing a purple Christian Dior Fall 2009 mini dress.

I love the dress on her, but I just wish she’d left the skirt alone. It would’ve been better cut short to allow it to flow like on the runway, than hemmed up.

Her dress was complemented with purple Brian Atwood pumps and a sliver clutch.

Pretty In Pink Award
Although I feel like I have seen this look many times before on Hayden Panettiere, there’s no denying how cute she looks in her pink Zac Posen dress with her favourite nude Christian Louboutin heels.

Best Floral Award
Ashley Greene was picture perfect wearing a Dolce & Gabbana ensemble including a light blue bustier top and floral print skirt.

I adore her ruby heels and purple clutch which complete her look.

Best Shoes Award
Ashley Tisdale wore a gorgeous wearing a cute Used/Unused bustier dress with Christian Louboutin Very Prive studded peep-toe pumps.

I told you these heels would be a hit with celebrities.

Most Sophisticated Award
At first I was miffed at Cameron Diaz for not showing off her best asset on the red carpet – her legs – but now I have come to realise that Cameron appears to have moved on from that look to a more sophisticated style.

Cameron looked so elegant and sophisticated wearing a grey figure-hugging Alexander McQueen asymmetrical zip dress.

Her stunning Pierre Hardy blue peep-toes are simply divine.

Most Cute Award
Every time I see Brenda Song on the red carpet the first thing I always say is “Ahhhh, she’s so cute”.

The cutie attempted to toughen up her look wearing a black and white Alexander Wang jersey dress with black clutch and black strappy sandals.

Most Interesting Award
Had Keke Palmer not worn the gold sequined bolero I probably wouldn’t have paid much attention to her look, but it’s so eye-catching.

The bolero adds an interesting dimension to her look.

Camilla Skovgaard ankle boots complete the look.

Best High-Street Look Award
Kristen Bell mixed a Topshop black jumpsuit with gold Jimmy Choo Flynn sandals.
