Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Janet Jackson was a guest on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” show last night to talk about her role in Tyler Perry’s forthcoming movie “Why Did I Get Married Too.”

She also discussed her forthcoming self-help book “True You” on weight loss issues and self-esteem, which draws upon her life experiences.

The singer wore a grey Donna Karan Spring 2010 ensemble which included linen belted crushed jacket paired with a grey double layered skirt.

Her all grey look was completed with a pair of Christian Louboutin Watersnake Bianca heels.

It’s unfortunate that her skirt is slightly uneven as she just stood up, but I really like this look on Janet.

She tends to wear figure hugging and dark looks too often so this is really refreshing.

Jennifer Lopez didn’t walk the red carpet at the AMA’s, but she gave us many costume changes to make up for it.

One of her looks backstage was this white bod-con Gucci Spring 2010 dress with many cut-out details.

She paired her dress with the runway heels which also had cut-outs.

On stage she opted for a gold dress with had exaggerated hips as she performed in Christian Louboutin heels.

At some point the skirt was removed reveal a lace playsuit, as Lopez changed into comfortable sneakers.

In yet another change backstage Jennifer looked her best wearing an embroidered strapless Marchesa dress with a feathery skirt.

It was Lady GaGa and Rihanna who provided the biggest talking point, as they both performed in body suits.

GaGa’s nude body suit was accented with dinosaur bones, whilst RiRi opted for a white bandage style body suit with exaggerated spikey shoulders.

The comeback queens both took to the stage.

Whitney Houston performed wearing a one-sleeved Kaufman Franco white jersey column, whilst Janet Jackson opened the show with a medley of some of the biggest hits wearing a khaki ensemble which again features pointed shoulders.

In the press room Shakira wore the same Herve Leger metal pailette-embellished bandage dress we saw on Jennifer Lopez recently.

Fergie showed us that if the rumours are true about Josh Duhamel he needs his head tested, as she look super hot and sexy wearing a bustier dress with patterned tights and thigh-high boots.

Kate Hudson was one of the presenters on the night.

The actress wore a silver Gianni Versace vintage chain mail cocktail dress, which she paired with nude heels.

Before Rihanna and Beyonce Knowles, Janet Jackson was the all singing all dancing female entertainer we all idolised.

I have mimicked everything from her key earring to her hair styles, plus I’ve even tried to copy her dance routines. For me she is the ultimate American Idol.

During Fashion Week I was lucky enough to see her at both the Versace Spring 2010 presentation and the after party.

She later went onto many other shows in Milan and later Paris, but it seems she was most interested in what was happening at London Fashion Week.

I say that because she wore 2 pieces from Todd Lynn’s Spring 2010 London Fashion Week presentation, which featured metallic shoulder-pads in the video for her new single “Make Me”.

The 43 year old singer she has it.

In the video she shows she still has the Jackson magic with an amazing catchy tune, and an energetic dance routine which takes me back to her “Rhythm Nation” days.

I love the hat-tips to Michael at various points of the video.

Forget Whitney, Janet’s back.

Karl Lagerfeld

This is one of my favourite look of Paris Fashion Week, even if Katy Perry is slightly too busty for this Karl Lagerfeld Fall 2009 dress.

I love the structure, the dark taupe colour and the way the dress falls back over her shoulders.

Her look was paired with ankle booties and a Karl Lagerfeld Spring 2009 bag, which has the designers face printed on the front.

Rihanna surprisingly opted for a subtle look wearing all black.

Her look was paired with leather gloves and Christian Louboutin lace pumps.

Lanvin

Janet Jackson looked very sophisticated wearing a black Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 dress with a ruffled detail on one shoulder.

Janet is officially the Sophia Bush of Fashion Week.

Hussein Chalayan

This is my favourite look from Rihanna so far at Paris Fashion Week.

This grey Hussein Chalayan Fall 2009 has an edge without going over the top, even with those thigh-high boots.

I hope she wears more from this designer in the future.

Givenchy

Many of you will be spitting fire that Rihanna is wearing Givenchy Couture, but at least she didn’t make it look comical.

Her black velvet Couture Fall 2009 jacket was paired with a simple LBD and black ankle boots.

Leigh Lezark opted for a Givenchy Resort 2010 look which included black pants, paired with a studded silk cowl-neck sleeveless top and a studded leather vest.

She really did pick the best look to suit her rock and roll style.

Sonia Rykiel

I’ve always loved this Sonia Rykiel Fall 2009 sparkling dress, and I’m so glad to see how cute yet sexy it looks on Katy Perry.

She wore her dress with a pair of Christian Louboutin pigalle’s.

Maison Martin Margiela

Michael Jackson gave us the glove, now Rihanna is trying to give us the Long sleeved glove.

I don’t think her Maison Martin Margiela white long sleeved glove will have the same impact, but she makes it work for what it is.

The disappointing thing was that her dress was so sheer, you could see her nipple ring and thong in some pictures.

Jean Paul Gaultier

Oh Dita von Teese.

Perfection, poise, sophistication and class just oozes from your every pore.

From the top of your head, to the tips of your bustier right down to your Louboutin’s.  You’re probably the only one really deserving to be front row at Paris Fashion Week.

Only you can bring the magic to this Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 Couture dress like no one else could.

J’Adore Dita.  J’Adore.

Rihanna opted for a criss cross  jacket which showed off her satin bra.

Leather pants and Christian Louboutin Ni toi ni moi blue suede boots completed this crazy look.

Katy Perry was more demure wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 black halter dress paired with a pigalle’s and a Chanel quilted bag.

Vivienne Westwood

Rihanna seems to not like wearing much clothes these days.

Here she opted for a Vivienne Westwood Fall 2009 black oversized blazer, which covered her bra and panties.

Thigh-high tan boot completed this “I got dress in a hurry” look.

Jessica Stroup being at Paris Fashion Week is exciting in that it shows she has a lot of fashion potential.

But like Blake Lively before her, she totally wrecks her opportunity by looking a complete mess in the front row.

Her Vivienne Westwood red strapless dress is horribly creased and terribly ill-fitting, plus her Brian Atwood Lola Suede pumps don’t work with her dress.

I hope she has time to redeem herself before she flies back to the US.

Christian Dior

Dita von Teese looks HAWT wearing a Christian Dior leather skirt suit.

If it looks very familiar, that’s because she wore a black wool version to the Wonderbra Party Edition Launch in London recently.

She teams her dress with grey metallic heels and a Christian Dior Resort 2010 leopard print bag.

Carine Roitfeld finally wore something besides her YSL vintage dress and Alaia heels for a nice change.

This time she opted for an Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2009 grey suit, paired with a grey sweater.

I love the positioning of the arm holes on this jacket.

Wang Lei opted for a simple Dior Pre-Fall 2009 grey dress with a neck tie, which is very similar to the grey skirt suit which was presented on the runway.

Rihanna tries to do Dita, but comes off looking quite ridiculous.

She also carried a bag from the Christian Dior Resort 2010 collection, and paired her dress with Christian Louboutin Studded Pigalle Pumps.

This is the worst look of the week.

After a very close fight with Victoria Beckham this weekend, Kerry Washington was finally picked as your Best Dressed this week.

You guys loved all of her looks this week from her white Calvin Klein dress, to her Malandrino blouse, to her Zuhair Murad Couture dress, so it was fitting that she be crowned Best Dressed.

I fell hard for Janet Jackson.

This is the first time I have featured her on this poll, and I strongly believe she has never looked better.

She has given up trying to have abs of steel and concentrated on letting her inner beauty shine through.

I loved how this Versace blue gown hugged her curves and gave her an amazing silhouette.

When I met Donatella Versace on Friday after her Versace Spring 2010 presentation, she told me that she likes to modified pieces from the runway to suit her body, and that’s exactly what she did here.

A tropical print mini dress with coil details at the waist, becomes a figure-hugging black dress with coil details cinching in Donatella’s already tiny waist.

I adore both looks.  She really is amazing.

Janet Jackson’s Versace Fall 2009 gown wasn’t modified but hers was electric blue to the runway’s black.

The wrap around gown was also nipped in at the waist to give Miss Janet that perfect hourglass figure.

Giovanna Battaglia does a good job of wearing this Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 blue and pink dress with a lace overlay without making it look comical.  In fact she looks better than the runway.

She paired her mini dress with a pair of LV Fall 2009 lace up boots with a pink trim and a pink clutch from the same collection.

Dita Von Teese wore a Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 hot pink satin long sleeved ruched dress with black waist belt.

This dress is quite refreshing on Dita as her dress with the exaggerated shoulders isn’t too structured.

I doubt Poppy Delevigne knows who Chiling Lin is, but she OWNED this Salvatore Ferragamo gown when she wore it to the 2009 China Huabiao Film Awards last month.

Because of that fact this stunning gown just looks OK on Poppy as I know how amazing this gown really is on the right person. Plus Chiling wore it without the sheer detail on the neckline which is not doing much for Poppy.

Anja Rubik is one of my favourite models of the moment.

The super look gorgeous in a dazzling Gucci Fall 2009 embellished sparkling mini dress.

She paired her edgy dress with studded booties to complete her rock chic look.

Gwyneth Paltrow wore the runway grey version of this Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2009 gown last year, but I much prefer Maria Sole Brivio Sforza’s bright coral version.

My only claim to fame is being the first to recognise that Angelina Jolie wore this Max Azria Spring 2009 dress back-to-front at the SAG Awards earlier this year.

WAG Kristina Liliana Matthaeus, wife of legendary footballer Lothar Matthaeus, wore the dress the right way at this event pairing her cornflower blue gown with a snake skin clutch.

I’m not quite sure when I pushed the snooze button on Rachel Bilson, but I even though she is wearing a beautiful Salvatore Ferragamo gown with a black clutch by the same designer I don’t feel wowed by any means.

This Bilson/Ferragamo collaboration just doesn’t feel natural.

I’m not crazy about the bodice on Chanel Iman’s black silk gown, but she looks very elegant and statuesque on the red carpet, but she should have got her guest to stand up stream from her so he could have looked a bit taller.

Her sparkling belt and diamanté wedges add bit of sparkle to her look.

Didn’t Linda Evangelista once say that she’d rather go naked than wear fur?
