Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Confessions of a Shopaholic, London Premiere

I was hoping to be really wowed by Isla Fisher when she hit the promotional trial for this movie.

I applaud her for braving the cold in a short black Jasmine Di Milo dress, but essentially it’s just a LBD, with sequins and a low back. Hardly ground-breaking.

What I did love was her black and gold clutch by Lara Bohinc and her chic Jimmy Choo Seattle strappy sandals.

Liberty’s Reopening, London

The stunning Freida Pinto was honoured by reopening of luxury retailer Liberty’s in London.

She wore a Dries Van Noten coral draped dress, with a wide black belt and black straps.

She accessorized her dress with black studded Jimmy Choo strappy sandals, and kept her hair sleek straight.

This gorgeous look makes up for her Elle Style Awards Chanel dress.

13th Annual Art Directors Guild Awards, LA

Do you know what this is?

Up for Best Dressed Of The Week.

I am so in love with Taraji P. Henson. Whoever is styling her at the moment, deserves to give themselves a pat on the back.

The Oscar nominated actress looked outstanding wearing a Moschino Cheap and Chic Fall 2009 ivory double breasted tuxedo with a black satin lapels, which was adorned with a silver brooch.

What a refreshing twist on the classic tuxedo.

59th Annual ACE Eddie Awards, LA

Another event, another fab look. Taraji consistence on the red carpet is outstanding.

Her cowl-neck silver satin dress is worn with gold heels. I am not a fan of mixing metals, but this works.

Eden Is West Premiere, Berlin Film Festival

I for one can’t wait for the end of the Berlin Film Festival, because Tilda Swinton can get back to her edgy stylish self.

I see were she is going in this Lanvin blue dress, with her responsibilities as a judge for this festival, but looking at her lately is like watching TV on mute. I feel unfulfilled.

2009 MusiCares “Person Of The Year” Gala, LA

Camilla Belle arrived at this event glowing with pure gorgeousity, wearing a short magenta Marchesa dress.

The mini dress had a multitude of beautiful embellishments all over the top half of the dress, and a satin skirt which kicks out at the back.

My number 2 girl crush completed the look with a Jimmy Choo Kase oval clutch, and silver peep-toes.

AMPAS’ Scientific And Technical Awards Dinner, LA

I really wanted to love this gorgeous Oscar de la Renta strapless gown, but it’s Jessica Biel who ruins this for me.

This could be in on a mannequin for all the life she is putting into this gown.

2009 Writers Guild Awards, LA

Kate Walsh was one of the presenters at this event, and she looked so very harming wearing a black strapless Missoni Spring 2009 embellished gown.

Mena Suvari wore a Missoni look very similar to this, but hers was a jumpsuit.

“He’s Just Not That Into You” Australian Premiere

Ginnifer Goodwin braved the rain to attend this premiere wearing a lime green Brian Reyes Spring 2009 dress, with a rise and fall hem, and a matching croc belt.

She completed her look with black sandals.

I was loving the longer locks from the LA premiere. I’m not loving the crop so much.

The Reader Berlin Film Festival Premiere

This Lanvin tiered dress Kate Winslet chose for this premiere was perfectly pretty, but I am dying for her to get back to her colourful red carpet dresses.

At the moment it’s black, after black, after black with no wow-factor.

I hope she doesn’t wear black at the Oscars. I might just lose it if she does.

CBS’s The Early Show, New York

To promotes her new movie He’s Just Not Into You on CBS’s The Early Show, Jennifer Connelly looked very chic in a Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2008 ensemble, with Christian Louboutin Mary Jane heels.

Vogue Pre-BAFTA Party

Julia Restoin Roitfeld’s mini black embellished Balmain Spring 2009 dress, is dangerously close to giving her a wardrobe malfunction.

Claudia Schiffer doesn’t seem to have made an effort for this event.

“Late Show with David Letterman”, New York

Whilst Isla Fisher posed for photographers outside the David Letterman show, she wore a pretty white Zac Posen cap sleeve dress.

She gave her look an edge by wearing a clunky silver statement necklace, and Christian Louboutin Very Galaxy heels.

“The Private Lives of Pippa Lee” Photocall – Berlin Film Festival

Blake Lively is not only bland in New York, but also bland in Berlin.

Why did she just stop trying?

What is she wearing? Well Vena Cava of course, with Moschino Mary Janes.

Isla Fisher wore a sexy strapless Matthew Williamson Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with a graphic multi-coloured print, and beaded detailing around the waist and pockets.

She wore her dress with mint green peep-toe heels, and large statement earrings.

The dress is very similar in style, to the Spring 2009 peachy dress which model Anja Rubik wore.

I do like Claire Danes’ Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2009 spaghetti strapped printed dress, with a fringed hem, but her hair and the make-up, really let her down.

Her pretty face is lost under a such a bad hairstyle. I’m not sure what happened with the make-up, but she has had much better days on the red carpet.

Krysten Ritter opted for a purple bubble hem, and pleated cap sleeved Sonia by Sonia Rykiel mini dress.

Leslie Bibb shimmered in a silver 3/4 length sleeved dress, with matching pumps.

Who knew writers were so fashion forward. Some how I can’t see JK Rowling wearing this.

Sophie Kinsella – who’s books you must have read – arrived wearing a black and white stripped Alexander McQueen column dress, with padded angular shoulders.

She completed her look with a red and black Union Jack McQueen clutch and black peep-toes.

Wendie Malick bravely opted for a very masculine 3 piece suit. Too masculine.

Of the rest, Laura Linney was definitely the best.

I love the mellow yellow colour of her asymmetrical Elie Saab Spring 2008 Couture gown, and the embellished waist. She looked outstanding.

Taraji P. Henson looked gorgeous in her J.Mendel Fall 2008 chiffon gown. It was quite dramatic, without going over the top.

She completed her look with a black satin Mary Norton clutch.

The trend for wearing electric blue continues with Mary-Louise Parker. Her Carlos Miele Spring 2009 gown had asymmetrical tiers from the bodice, and a chiffon hem and train.

She accessorized her gown with silver jewels and a Mary Norton clutch and Chopard jewels.

Sandra Bullock was another one of my favourites in this vanilla Dior gown.

I love how her hair falls to the opposite direction of her asymmetrical gown.

Rachel Griffiths wore a one-shouldered golden Ralph Rucci silk gown, with a Judith Leiber vintage handbag Decades Inc, Liseanne Frankfurt jewels and bronze Vanessa Noel heels.

Kyra Sedgwick did not wear L’Wren Scott as I had predicted. Instead she wore a strapless red belted Oscar de la Renta gown, with Fred Leighton jewels.

Amanda Seyfried wore an ethereal pearl Stella McCartney silk asymmetric gown, which had a beaded detail on the shoulder.

She completed her look with a Daniel Swarovski clutch.

Heidi Klum wore an incredibly cute strapless vintage James Galanos pouf dress, with black and red polka dots from Decades.

She completed her look with Christian Louboutin multi buckle sandals.

I was not crazy about Isla Fisher’s two-tone nude Carlos Miele Spring 2009 gown. I would have liked it to be all one colour.

Elisabeth Moss was one of the many ladies who picked red last night, hers was vintage Givenchy, and she picked Garrard jewels to complete her look.

Jane Krakowski opted for a J. Mendel gown, which she wore with Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry.

Melissa George does not do safe, which is why her thigh-high split ice blue Armani Prive gown has an interesting black fan detail on the bodice.

Tina Fey’s Roberto Cavalli plunging gown, also did not wow me.

Surprise guest of the night was Alek Wek. I don’t remember the last time I saw her on the red carpet.

The supermodel wore a Christian Dior Fall 2008 mini dress, which showed off her impossibly long legs.

Vanessa Hudgens wore a nude beaded Alberta Ferretti gown, with a candy coloured necklace.

Madeline Zima looks youthful but elegant. She has an amazing figure and I love how this dress shows her shape and the curves hit all the right points.

Viola Davis’ gown for some reason reminded me of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Zac Posen Oscar 2007 gown with shape and the lines.

She dressed well for her figure, and the colour is so complimentary to her skin.

Maria Menounos wore a cute purple ruffle one shoulder Ina Soltani gown.

Samantha Harris wore the same designer, but picked her dress in the colour of the moment – electric blue.

Christina Hendricks has curves to die for. The stunning redhead looked ravishing wearing a custom black silk sculpted strapless Tadashi gown.

Anna Paquin wore a purple Herve Leroux gown, which had a ruched bodice and draped detail on the side.
