Red Carpet Fashion Awards

After all the hullabaloo about Madonna and Whitney Houston wearing a grey leopard print Dolce & Gabbana dress on the same day, you’d think that no celebrity would be seen out in this dress again.

Jordin Sparks had no such problem wearing the infamous dress whilst performing her new single “Battlefield” on the “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” show last night.

Maybe she wore the dress because there is no such thing as bad publicity when you have an album to promote.

Her sophomore album “Battlefield” is in stores today, and if people become interested in her album because of talk of this dress, it can’t be seen as a bad thing.

She looked stunning in the figure-hugging dress which she wore with black YSL patent studded sandals.

Jordin Sparks was radiant wearing a BCBG Max Azria chiffon maxi dress, with a pleated bodice.

The maxi ombre dress has a very bohemian feel to it. I love the ocean feel of the sea green and blue colours.

This is a fabulous dress, I really love it.

Singer Sara Bareilles’ Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent print belted wrap dress was slightly less informal, but she still looks fantastic.

In the long shot, the dress looks to be covered in black polka dots, but in the close-up, you can see the fish-print.

Sara’s look was complete with strappy sandals.

The Opening Of Annenberg Space For Photography, LA

Courtney Love is rock chick chic personified, wearing a black studded Lanvin Fall 2007 dress.

Kate Mara’s pink Dior dress is incredibly cute and delicate, with it’s ruffled bodice, and embroidered skirt.

Nice look, shame about the heavy black clutch.

Rachel Zoe And Decadestwo Charity Benefit, LA

What a refreshing changed to see Nicole Richie in something that’s not a maxi dress, nor boho inspired.

Nicole wore a taffeta pleated black mini skirt, which was very poufy, and did a good job of hiding her baby bump.

A printed scarf, white sleeveless top and YSL Trib Two’s completed the look.

Rachel Zoe exits her car gracefully, wearing a black jumpsuit, and pair of those incredible Louis Vuitton Fall 2008 two-tone platforms.

The Stylista also carried a lust worthy Hermes Medor clutch, and wore a large gold and silver link necklace.

Perry Reeves’ emerald green mini Dior dress with a bow and pleated skirt detail, is complimented with a very large matching ring.

Figures Of Speech: Fundraising Gala, London

Each item in the House of Holland Fall 2009 collection was striped.

So it was easy for me to recognise both Pixie Geldof’s wooly mammoth coat and long sleeved dress.

Considering Pixie fancies herself as a ‘wild child’. I’m surprised she picked the safest colours.

Demi Lovato wowed the crowds wearing a black Shoshanna strapless dress with studded peep-toe booties.

This isn’t any old plain LBD, because of the ruching at bust and ruffled detail on the front.

A very cute look for the young actress.

Dania Ramirez wasn’t about to be upstage by a bunch of teen actresses, so she made sure she stood out wearing a orange and white graphic print Jay Godfrey halter-neck maxi dress.

Very tropical.

Jordan Pruitt is a perfect pink princess wearing a Betsey Johnson Teen Vogue strapless dress, with shimmering silver pumps.

The dress is cinched in at the waist, and accented with sash, then the A-line skirt flares to create the perfectly pretty silhouette.

This look is so girlie, I love it.

For the second time in a row, I am surprised at Jordin Sparks’ toned down look.

Where are the cute mini dresses and the bright colours?

Emily Osment is wearing a gorgeous cream and black BCBG Max Azria embellished silk chiffon babydoll dress.

I love embellished bodice, the flowing chiffon skirt and black ribbon tied around the empire-waist.

Meaghan Jette Martin opted for this striped and polka dotted Betsey Johnson Spring 2008 mini dress, with sequins all over.

The dress is cute, but the shoes are fierce.

Tiffany Giardina was also cute in pink, wearing a ruffle neck dress, accented with a black waist band.

She completed her look with a silver clutch, and a black jeweled headband.

Leven Rambin opted for a teal silk pocketed shift dress.

Best Rock Chick/Best Dressed Award
Pink stood out the most on the red carpet last night, and I absolutely love the cut of her strapless, curve-hugging Vivienne Westwood Fall 2007 gown, which is covered in sequins to give it a kind of reptile feel.

Her accessories were kept to a minimum, and soft curls help give her that feminine touch.

It was dramatic, bold, daring and perfect for her. It gave her an edge, without making her look too butch.

Best Co-ordination/Best Group Award
Pussycat Dolls all wore pieces from the Christian Siriano Spring 2009 collection.

This is what I mean about looking cohesive. They are not all necessarily wearing the same colours, but they compliment each other so well.

From left to right; Melody Thorton wore a lime green halter-neck dress, with pewter strappy sandals.

My favourite Doll, Jessica Sutta, wore a charcoal grey skirt, with a lime green strapless top and over-the-knee black boots.

Nicole Scherzinger wore a gorgeous strapless grey mini dress with a purple ombre hem. She completed her look with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.

Ashley Roberts also wore a strapless mini, but hers was nude with a black overlay, which she paired with black strappy sandals.

Kimberly Wyatt wore the most colourful dress, and probably the most recognizable since Heidi Klum wore the full length version to the 2008 Emmy’s.

Best Strapless Award
This dress was one of my favourites from the Marchesa Spring 2009 collection.

I did not quite have it earmarked for any particular celebrity, but Miley Cyrus definitely did not spring to mind. Miley wore this dress so well, and she did not pout on the red carpet. A first I think.

It was her 16th birthday at this event, so she no doubt wanted to feel grown up by wearing this Marchesa gold embellished strapless dress with a black draped chiffon overlay.

She completed her look with Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

I know a lot of you will say that this dress is not age appropriate, but I loved it on her.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Earrings Award
Alicia Keys is a vision of pure loveliness in this Armani Privé royal blue one shoulder gown with Swarovski crystal trim, but unfortunately she did not get Best Dressed because I really disliked her earrings.

They are way too much for such an understated gown, but the tikka was a nice touch.

Most Improved Award
OK the lips are still very rouge, but there is no denying that Christina Aguilera was an absolute knock-out on the red carpet last night.

She wore an amazing Elie Saab Fall 2007 Couture gown, which many would say is hard to go wrong with. But this does not apply to Christina, because she is likely to kill any dress with too much make-up, or over posing on the red carpet, but she did neither last night, much to her credit and no doubt resistant.

Her long silver, embellished gown had a looked old Hollywood, which she wore with Stephen Webster earrings and Garrard bracelet and rings.

Best Embellishments Award
Taylor Swift rarely puts a foot wrong on the big occasions, and this was no exception as the country star shone in a Collette Dinnigan Spring 2009 asymmetric embellished silver mini dress.

She completed her look with pewter Christian Louboutin peep-toes.

Best Legs Award
Carrie Ann Inaba showed off her stunning lean legs wearing an Alberto Makali bronze sequined mini dress.

Best White Award
Demi Lovato looked stunning in the white tiered lace Gustavo Cadile dress, with a black sash.

Best Use Of Colour Award
Jordin Sparks shone so brightly in her canary yellow Dolce & Gabbana Pre-Fall 2008 dress, with a contrasting sash.

She completed her look with silver metallic sandals, and those darn red extensions.

Best Brit Award
Whilst Natasha Bedingfield let us Brits down in an ill-fitting suit, Leona Lewis did us proud by walking the red carpet in a mauve sequin and tufted chiffon Jenny Packham dress.

The dress had a butterfly detail on the bodice, which only adds more beauty to this girlie dress, which the singers tends to opt for.

Her silver sandals and Swarovski clutch compliment her dress beautifully.

Best Black/Best At Not Over Doing It Award
Like Christina, Mariah Carey has a tendency to over do it on the big stage, but I think since her marriage to Nick Cannon, the attention seeking, OTT, bum skimming outfits have gone, and a more sophisticated look has emerged.

This black Dolce & Gabbana gown is sexy, without being slutty, which is a fine line Mariah has walked in the past.

The dress gives her an amazing silhouette.

Big, Bold and Beautiful Award
If I told you Queen Latifah was going to wear a stretched metallic dress, you would have struggled to see how it would work, but the Queen does make it work, and how.

She is beyond stunning in her dress, with gorgeous Jimmy Choo pewter shoes to match.

Sexy Siren Award
There is always one who adds a touch of sex appeal to the red carpet, surprisingly it was Sarah Chalke.

The actress took the the red carpet wearing a bust enhancing, corseted Zac Posen Stingray satin dress, that just oozed sex appeal.

She completed her look with Christian Louboutin heels.

Most Shocking Improvement Award
I guess like me you never thought you would see the day that Phoebe Price would end up on any Best Dressed list, but despite the shock, she really does deserve this award.

The dress is surprisingly nice, one tone, not over-the-top, nor garish, not in your face, nor vomit inducing.

It’s actually respectable, but I do not expect this to last.

Someone check Phoebe’s temperature, I think she is coming down with something.

Best Gold Award
Say what you want about Paris Hilton, but she is looking much better these days. And although this dress is the size of a postage stamp, it is the perfect dress for Paris.

The gold chain mail dress compliments her sun-kissed skin perfectly.

Best Shoes Award
Actress Shailene Woodley also wore a grey dress from the Christian Siriano Spring 2009, I loved the layers and the neckline, but more importantly I loved the shoes, with the chiffon ruffled details.
