Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Lush bouncy waves that ooze oomph and effortless sex appeal? Now this is the kind of hair every girl wants to have. Kudos to whoever styled Jamie Chung’s locks for the L.A. premiere of Sucker Punch. Her loose retro waves instantly evoke thoughts of our favorite film noir seductresses of yesteryear, like Ava Gardner, Veronica Lake and Rita Hayworth. Below, our tips on how you too can master temptress tresses.

—Divide hair into small sections and quickly pass a ceramic flat iron down the entire hair shaft (from roots to tips) to even hair out and remove tangles;

—Holding the flat iron vertically, close the plates mid-shaft (just under your ear) and lightly turn and clap the iron until you reach the ends;

—Using both of your index fingers, immediately roll each section up and pin each curl flat on your scalp with a clip. This allows your strands to cool and set in a coiled position, giving each curl more definition. Bonus points if you do this every single night—your waves can last a full week!;

—Remove clips and brush ringlets with a paddle brush to turn curls into waves;

—Lastly, mist your mane with a lightweight dry oil. It helps tame frizz and gives your mane a glossy finish.

I love Jamie Chung. The first time I ever featured her she blew me away so much I gave her BDOTW.

She wowed me again last night at the “Sucker Punch” LA Premiere.

I will love her for life for wearing one of my favourite looks from the Giambattista Valli strapless draped mousseline dress from the Spring 2011 collection.

The yellow dress has a taupe panel which drapes from the waist and a sexy thigh-high split.

She teamed her look with Loree Rodkin chandelier earrings, a Loree Rodkin Peacock feather ring, a silver Judith Leiber “Op Art” embossed leather minaudière and nude Ruthie Davis pumps.

I wish she opted for strappy heels.

Thick brunette waves draped over one shoulder and red lippie completed her look.

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.

Sorority Row hits theaters across the US next Friday, September 11, but in the UK it comes out on September 9.
