Red Carpet Fashion Awards

For the first time in Red Carpet Fashion Awards history a dude has won the readers vote.

Robert Pattinson shunned the usual black and grey formulaic suit to inject some much needed life onto the red carpet at the “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” LA Premiere.

Many of you wished he’d worn his well fitted Gucci suit with the darker shirt as presented on the runway, but I think the grey worked better for his colouring.

None of you should be surprised that I went for actress Jamie Chung wearing a Tibi watercolor silk dress.

As an addict of bright colourful runway looks translating well onto the red carpet, this was a no brainer for me.

Normally I’m all over gowns and embellishments, but Jamie, Cameron Diaz and Naomi Watts re-opened my eyes to how well causal chic can be equally appealing on the red carpet.

If ever there was a red carpet dress that screams “summertime”, it’s this gorgeous Tibi watercolor silk dress.

Jamie Chung looked stunning wearing this Tibi Spring 2010 dress to the “Grown Ups” New York premiere held at the Ziegfeld Theatre.

From the abstract floral print to the structured shoulders, this fresh modern dress is so uplifting.

In a previous post I said that “I don’t think I can ever truly love or even like a look with those Casadei heels”.

For this look I will take back that statement.

I totally think Jamie deserves to be a BDOTW contender.

Olivia Palermo has also been spotted wearing this dress.

My first thought was there’s a lot of black at this premiere.

But considering 2 funerals took place in LA yesterday, I think it’s fitting that some of the stars wore black as a mark of respect.

Rumer was a shoe in for Best Dressed this week with her Zac Posen dress, but her Stella McCartney ensemble has trumped that look.

I have been rooting for Rumer for a very long while, and for the second time she gives me red carpet head-to-toe perfection.

The lace jacket hints at nudity without being tacky, whilst the black pants completes the sleek silhouette.

Her deep brunette hair is swept to the side, with jewels kept to a minimum.

If you are feeling a touch of de ja vu with this look, it’s because Stella McCartney wore the jumpsuit version of this lace look to the 2009 Costume Institute Gala.

For once Rumer isn’t upstage by her mother…

…who btw looked stunning wearing a black Oscar de la Renta Resort 2010 dress with black satin Brian Atwood pumps.

Demi Moore’s dress had a large rosette detail on the neckline, from which large ruffles cascade down the front of her dress.

So ladylike, so chic, so Demi, so glad she wore the runway belt. I’m not sure the dress would’ve worked without it.

Audrina Patridge has walked the red carpet a few times without her favourite Alexander McQueen bow clutch, but it was back last night.

The actress wore a black strapless textured See by Chloe dress, with a tie to the waist and a tulip skirt, with Alexander McQueen strappy sandals.

I know blondes are meant to have more fun, but I hope Audrina returns to the darker locks soon.  The blonde was cute a first, but it’s starting to lose it’s original spark.

Jamie Chung looked sassy wearing a rubbery LBD by Giorgio Armani paired with Brian Atwood heels.

The dress is interesting with those sharp details cascading from the shoulder, but what I love here is her flawless make-up.

Margo Harshman opted for a creamy Gustavo Cadile Fall 2009 strapless gown.

I love the ruched bodice and the gold band on the empire-waist, she really looks so elegant in this stunning gown.

A gold clutch and her hair swept up completes this beautiful look.

I didn’t expect to see this ivory Miu Miu Spring 2008 mini dress on the red carpet again, but Jasmine Dustin gave it another outing.

It’s still such a stunning dress, but it really deserved better shoes.

Whilst everyone opted for something youthful, I think the black satin gown Briana Evigan wore was a bit of a safe option.

Caroline D’Amore wore a sexy Dolce & Gabbana trademark strapless bustier dress with a eyelet skirt.

She paired her dress with silver strappy Jimmy Choo’s and a matching clutch.

TV personality Casey Reinhardt wore a Alice + Olivia taupe dress with leg lengthening nude heels.

Evan Rachel Wood was looking fierce on the red carpet, wearing a sexy black and silver Gucci Fall 2009 dress, with black feathered detail on the shoulders, a large waist belt, and black Brian Atwood “Maniac” platforms.

I love how this girl switches things up for different events. She’s never predictable. When you expect black she will give you a cream gown like at the Oscars.

Her look was complete with the red carpet favourite, the Jimmy Choo Kase Oval Clutch.

I’m really enjoying Katharine McPhee’s recent run on the red carpet. She always looks so elegant and beautiful. This event was no exception.

She arrived wearing a poppy red Reem Acra Resort 2009 silk satin strapless cocktail dress, with bow detail on the bodice.

Her look was complete with a pair of  Tory Burch’s Francesca Sexy gladiator sandals.

This is the second time in a row that LaLa Vazquez has worn Alexander Wang on the red carpet.

This time she wears an Alexander Wang denim and velvet corset top, with a stripey blazer, and black pants.

I like the blazer and the Wang top, but not together. I also think her pants would have been better had they been more fitted. At present they look ill-fitting, especially around the ankles.

Rumer Willis showed off her long legs, wearing a mini black dress with a ruffle skirt. The dress had an interesting print, and her grey clutch complements the dress well.

I like this look for Rumer, but I’m still rooting for her to dye her hair back to black.

Cutie Jamie Chung, arrived wearing a strapless Mara Hoffman dress, with an interesting print. Her look was completed a gorgeous studded clutch, and a Giuseppe Zanotti cut-out booties.

AnnaLynne McCord’s hair was curly and wild the last time she walked the red carpet. This time she opts for sleek marcel waves, with her black strapless mini Alice + Olivia Madison dress.

The pop of red on the lips adds a very small touch of colour, to her all black look.

Bar Refaeli always looks so beautiful.

On this occasion she glows in a one shoulder Notte by Marchesa hot pink mini dress, with large flower detail on the bodice.

Not sure about those purple peep-toes though.

Eva Marcille wore an ivory halter neck Eva Culture gown, with layer upon layer of ruffles.

It’s simple, and yet totally gorgeous.

My Best Dressed of last week, actress Jamie Chung, wore this strapless floral maxi dress to the the world premiere of Dragonball Evolution in Japan last Tuesday.

Sophia Bush had worn the same dress 7 months earlier to the Teen Choice Awards.

Sophia wore her dress with a grey Fendi Borderline satin clutch, and a string of silver bracelets.

Sophia is one of my many girl crushes, but I prefer the way Jamie wore the dress, with a shorter bodice. This allowed the skirt to appear more voluminous, and I believe it would have billowed like a giant mushroom on the red carpet. Sophia’s skirt looks flat in comparison.

Jamie wins for me.

After looking at the Fall 2009 collections for the last 4 weeks, I have been getting progressively worried about how much black was presented. Jamie Chung was a relieving tonic to my eyes, as she took to the red carpet in a floral Jenni Kayne strapless dress.

Vanessa Williams and Sarah Jessica Parker were my next favourites.

Your favourite was Freida Pinto wearing a white Chanel dress.

I was surprised she won, because a lot of the comments on that post, were related to how bored some of you are of her. You surely can’t be tiring of Frieda yet? She’s barely started.
