Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

2009 ALMA Awards

Best Dressed Award
It’s been a while but Selena Gomez finally wears something that I really love, as she had been dressed older than her teen years.

I adore her pink Tracy Reese Black Label gown, especially the cute petals adorning the bodice and shoulder.

It’s the perfect gown for her both the colour and style.

Best Spring 2010 Red Carpet Debut Award
Jordana Brewster picked a stunning gown from Reem Acra’s recently presented Spring 2010 collection.

The strapless draped canary yellow gown is such an ethereal colour which adds warmth of her skin.

Perfect choice for her.

Back to Black Award
After having a very brief flirtation as a blonde, Nelly Furtado goes back to her natural darker hair colour.

She looked stunning last night wearing Elie Saab Fall 2009 black halter-neck gown with contrasting lace panel for a provocative twist.

This is her second Elie Saab look in a row.

Slightly Disappointed, But I Do Like It Award
I expected a big gown from Eva Longoria on this red carpet, but I guess she was saving them for the show.

The host for the night opted for a strapless taupe paillette covered column Oscar de la Renta dress – which slightly squash the twins – paired taupe heels.

Her hair and neutral make-up are perfect for this look.

Best Non-Supported Actress Award

Jennifer Morrison should really have worn a bra with her Herve Leger cream gown, because the twins are looking a wee bit lopsided.

Once I got over that I could appreciated how stunning she looks.

She could have easily opted for a neutral make-up, but added a dash of red to the lips for a more sultry look.

Frizz Ease Award
Dania Ramirez’ also wore a canary yellow gown, but hers was by Pamella Roland.

I love the gown and the criss-crossing ruched detail on the bodice, but girlfriend needs some serum in her hair to control that frizz.

De Ja Vu Award
Jamie-Lynn Sigler wore a gown earlier this week in exactly the same colour, but this time her gown is strapless.

I’m more excited by the necklace than the gown.

Most Disappointing Award
Salma Hayek would normally proudly show-off the twins, wear a stunning gown, or do both.

This is not a look I would associate with Salma.

The shorter velvet deep lilac modified Bottega Veneta Fall 2009 dress is hideous and so over accessorized with the two necklaces and jewled headband.

YSL metallic Trib Two heels and a matching Bottega Veneta box clutch completes this terrible look.  I really hate it.

Worst Dressed Award
I was surprised Eva La Rue was wearing a Zuhair Murad gown, because this gown is very Las Vegas show girl to me.

From the colour to the embellished neckline, it just screams tacky.

What is it with the lack of support on this red carpet?

I’m so grateful Eva Longoria is keeping her cute sassy little dresses phase. The LBD and tuxedo phase didn’t sit well with me.

This is how I prefer Eva.

The pint-size ‘Desperate Housewives’ star looked stunning wearing a white pleated organza strapless Marchesa dress with a gold embroidered waist band.

I love the colour against her skin.

Gold peep-toes and a sweeping updo complete the look.

Dania Ramirez stepped onto the red carpet wearing a playful LBD by Ina Soltani.

The gorgeous actress looked glam in the black one shoulder taffeta mini dress with floral appliqué detail cascading from the strap to the bodice and a ruched hem.

Paulina Rubio paired a sexy little aqua dress with a leather jacket and YSL Fall 2008 gold platformed heels.

Nice dress, but did she really need to wear that leather jacket?

Jennifer Morrison kept her look very simple wearing a white kimono sleeved dress with gold peep-toes.

After 24 hours without internet access I breathe a sigh of relief as the withdrawal symptoms were seriously beginning to kicking in.

We saw the red carpet for the New York premiere, now the ladies on the west coast put on their best dresses for “The September Issue” LA premiere.

Ginnifer Goodwin was by far my favourite wearing a cute red embellished Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 dress with a tiered skirt and a ribbon tied to the waist.

My only problem are the pointy pumps, the runway heels are divine although I can imagine impossible to walk in.

May I just say WOW.

Shenae Grimes blows me away wearing a stunning sparkling black dress from the Fendi Spring 2009, and I really disliked that collection so this look is even more impressive.

Her hair was swept to the side, her make-up was flawless and she paired her dress with stunning Jimmy Choo Karina studded shoe-boots.

She works this grown up look well without looking too old.

I get a boho hippy vibe from Jennifer Morrison in this Stella McCartney maxi dress, when I would’ve assumed the wearer of this dress would have given off more of a gothic vibe.

I surprisingly don’t hate the look.  The lace and velvet details add to the charm of this look.

Rose Byrne wore an Alberta Ferretti Fall 2009 teal silk chiffon and sequin cocktail dress.

The dress is unexpectedly paired with nude heels and silvery clutch.

Trust Maggie Q to be the sex kitten of this red carpet.

The stunning actress looked outstanding wearing a Azzaro strapless dress.

The dusty pink strapless dress has a bow detailing at hem and studded details on the hip.

The actress paired her dress with nude Brian Atwood Manic pumps.

I don’t think I have ever said this before in reference to Ashlee Simpson, but I LOVE what she is wearing.

Usually her look has a “I Wannabe In The Band” type of vibe to it, but here she channels a very cute, feminine summery look that I just can’t get enough of.

Her strapless shimmering champagne coloured Jill Stuart playsuit is so chic, which she pairs with pearls, a white Dolce & Gabbana clutch and grey Brian Atwood heels.

For me the best dressed at this event.

Katie Cassidy wore a modified Balenciaga leopard print dress from the Fall 2009 collection.

I love the draping detail around the hips defining the waist, with her bold multi-coloured clutch and silver strappy heels. I’m really happy black pumps are not in this picture.

I don’t know who Yvonne Strahovski is, but I knew it only took me 2 seconds to fall in love with her cute ensemble.

Her Camilla & Marc Spring 2008 striped blazer with her ivory skirt and blood red shoes has a Ralph Lauren feel to it.

Love it.

Jessica Stroup shows a bit of her sassy side wearing a shortened black strapless Rachel Roy Fall 2009 dress with lace panels.

She paired her dress with Stella McCartney black heels and a matching Sergio Rossi clutch.

I’ve loving how her bob is constantly evolving. I can barely remember how she looked with longer hair.

Jessica is neck and neck with Ashley Greene as my favourite red carpet newbie this year.

I go back and forth with everyone who wears Herve Leger. I know many of you wish these bandages dresses were burned, but some do look great.

This isn’t one of those times. Eliza Dushku is a busty lady and this type of dress doesn’t flatter.

I preferred this Herve Leger armor-trim dress on the runway with one strap rather than two, but I do love the YSL tribute sandals which complement the dress well.

Eliza also carried a bright colourful clutch.

“Lost” actress Emilie de Ravin has been MIA from the red carpet for a long while, but she makes a spectacular return wearing a beautiful ivory lace Max Azria Fall 2009 mini dress.

The runway dress is styled have more of a tougher edge, but Emile’s fully lined version appears softer although she added a studded belt to prevent her look from being too sickly sweet.

Like Alexa Chung, Cat Deeley is flying the flag for us Brits in the US but her chic style is more to my liking.

Cat wore British brands via her a white crochet Jaeger dress paired with tan Mulberry sandals.

Our English rose glows so beautifully, with clean golden locks.

Jennifer Morrison opted for a strapless orange Sonia Rykiel dress with a folded neckline and a voluminous skirt.

I love the bright colour and the cute braided hairstyle.

She pairs her look with a Raven Kauffman Couture clutch.

Miranda Cosgrove has such an infectious smile it’s hard not to love her.

The actress walked the red carpet wearing a Vena Cava Narthex tiered dress.

The brushstroke-print tiers on the bodice and hem adds a touch of colour to the cream sleeveless dress.

Dania Ramirez opted for a white Dolce & Gabbana trademark strapless bustier dress with a eyelet skirt and bright yellow heels.

Krysten Ritter wore red strappy sandals with her midnight blue Proenza Schouler quilted bustier dress.

The dress has a quilted silk charmeuse bustier with perfectly complements the voluminous pleated silk faille skirt.

Sanaa Lathan looked radiant wearing a Tadashi Shoji Fall 2009 hyacinth print chiffon one-shoulder dress.

Jordana Brewster’s Reem Acra Fall 2009 gold leaf jacquard halter dress with black belt, ensure she stood out amongst everyone else who opted for a more summery look.

Garcelle Beauvais opted for a full-length one-shouldered pale pink dress with a coral floral print.

She paired her dress with gold, a tan clutch and coral hooped earrings.

Maggie Grace is always so graceful.

I love her one-shouldered dress with a Dries van Noten Spring 2009-esqe mosaic print.

I’m really not keen on Shenae Grimes’ make-up, but her navy zipper trimmed Isabel Lu dress is cute.

Her look is paired with Miu Miu heels and a Kotour clutch.

Radha Mitchell wore a floaty floral vintage Cardinali dress and vintage KJL bangle from Decades Inc., paired with a Bottega Veneta clutch.

The white sunglasses and wedges add to the summery look she was going for.

Jessica Lucas wore a beautiful emerald one-shouldered Jay Godfrey Resort 2010 dress with a black waistband.

The “Melrose Place” actress accessorized with black pumps, a black clutch and a Swarovski bracelet.

The fashion roller coaster that is Lynn Collins takes another nose dive.

Although I do like the dress and the bright pink lips, the rest of the look feels alien the dress.

The hair is really granny-ifed and the Jeffrey Campbell Potion Ankle Boots – which are very similar to the Opening Ceremony boots – are very rock chick making this look too busy for me.
