2008 MTV Music Awards Red Carpet – Best Dressed

Best Group Award
Finally the Pussycat Dolls get it oh so right.

I love the soft neutral colours of both the dresses and make-up. Such a refreshing change from the S&M gear they usually wear.

Melody Thornton kind of upsets the balance for me in her 3 piece suit, but the other 4 are perfection.

Best Comeback/Most Improved Extensions Award
I knew she could do it. Britney Spears made a massive comeback last night collecting 3 awards for a blah song and a so so video, but what impressed me most is that she more than pulled her sh*t together.

Her extensions look like they weren’t purchased from Jessica Simpson’s HairDo line.

The shorten Atelier Versace Fall 2008 silver beaded dress was gorgeous, and reminded me of Britney of old.

Welcome back Brit Brit.

Best Glow Award
Ashlee Simpson is rumoured to be carrying twins, which apparently is the new thing in celebrity childbirth.

The red head took to the red carpet in a black draped empire-lined Alexander McQueen Fall 2008 gown, with a stunning train.

The dress has a mixture of Gothic chic and feminine elegance that looks so right on Mrs Wentz.

Best Mini Award
Ashlee Tisdale provided the little sparkly dress wearing a Roberto Cavalli strapless mini which was covered in white paillettes.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Hair Award
Pink’s red and navy stripped Alexis Lamontagna Fall 2008 gown strapless gown, was stunning. I really fell in love with it.

I think the dress suited Pink, but I just did not like her hair.

Best Legs Award
Ciara showed off plenty of leg in her metallic Dolce & Gabbana dress, which she wore with Louboutin shoes, Jimmy Choo starred patent clutch.

Best Ass Award
Hurley brand ambassador and face of the line’s new fall campaign, Bar Refaeli attended the show wearing a grey cotton tank dress custom-made for the model by Hurley. The dress did well to show off her best asset.

Bar kept her look on trend for fall by adding piles of statement jewels by Badgley Mischka.

Best Strapless Award
Nothing makes you feel young, cute and girly like a Bestey Johnson dress. And that is exactly how Jordin Sparks looked.

You Did Not Suck Award
Lauren Conrad is not my favourite person, but give credit were credit is due, she did look gorgeous in this white dress by Pogah Couture. I especially love the skirt of this dress.

She completed her look with silver Sergio Rossi heels, and a silver Kara Ross clutch.

Most Fashion Forward Award
Rihanna wore a black bustier with a Peter Pilotto Fall 2008 print shield skirt in vibrant green/yellow.

The skirt is the show stopper, as it is has a very futuristic feel to it.

She completes her edgy look, with a pair of white platformed t-bar heels.

Cute Shoes/Clutch/Nails Combo
The dress Victoria Justice is adorable, but how cute is she to have matched her shoes, clutch and nail colour? So cute.

Golden Girl Award
Audrina Patridge gold and peachy dress was suited to her golden tan. She wore her dress with a gold vintage clutch by Daniel Swarovski.

Best Theme Award
Katy Perry channeled Wonder Wonder. So cute.

Best Rock Chick Award
I love rock chicks in dainty dresses. Hayley Williams of Paramore wore a green Topshop vintage inspired dress, with a cute bow tie, torn tight and rubber platforms.

2008 BET Awards Red Carpet

After looking at these pictures last night, I had one disturbing thought. I miss Beyonce Knowles.

Even with her over the top sequins, and her mother’s vomit inducing designs, at least there was a talking point.

Not many attempted to steal her crown.

Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
The only shining light was Rihanna, and she was was literally a shining light in this neon-yellow Giambattista Valli Spring 2008 multi-tiered gown.

The only downside for me was the lip colour as it for me is too harsh for this dress.

Best Embellishments Award
Ashanti looked just OK in this jeweled embellished Marchesa Fall 2007 gown. Not to over the top and in your face.

Best Veteran Award
Nia Long has been attending these events for as long as I can remember, and she ALWAYS looks great. I love her this grape draped mini dress.

Best Booties Award
Despite not being able to crack a smile, Lauren London looks cute in her French Connection wizard cotton mini strapless grey dress, which she wears with the ever popular Givenchy Shoes Strappy Open Toe Ankle Booties.

Best Shoes Award
I was not crazy about Alicia Keys fuchsia strapless David Meister dress, nor her choice of jewelry, but I do love her patent paint drip Sergio Rossi heels.

Best White Award
Gabrielle Union is an absolute vision in this white draped Celine gown with a metal halter and her mega-watt smile.

Best Clutch/Lady In Red Award
Jordin Sparks of course wore red, to match those red streaks in her hair, which she has been sporting for a while.

Although the dress looks like it needs to be pulled down, I do love the colour and fold details on the front.

Her multi-coloured shimmering snake-skin clutch is to die for.

Just OK Award
After spending all that time in the presence of Patricia Field whilst working on Sex And The City movie, Jennifer Hudson really did not pick up many tips. She is still opting for the same brown/bronze colour she always seems to wear on the big occasions.

Her dress is again by Peter Soronen and her shoes are Miu Miu.

Most Improved Award
Tocarra Jones is usually falling out of her dress, so she wins many points for keeping her puppies under control and under her dress.

Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
If you need to ask why, you need to go to your local opticians immediately.

Keyshia Cole is squinting, such is the brightness of her hideous bubble dress.

As Gizmo from the Gremlins would say “Bright light. Bright light”.

Worst Red Award
Lil Mama for a time sported Chanel and Betsey Johnson, so I thought she was on her way to change direction like Rihanna. Then this a complete 180.

That poor kid much be so embarrassed.

Worst Hair Award
Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, it’s 2008, when are you going to change that hairstyle?

It was cool when it was original back in 1994, but now it is just plain tired.

T Boz arrived with her home girl Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, who’s ensemble was just as hideous as her band mate.

Worst Veteran Award

Cindy Herron is still the prettiest member of En Vogue, and was by far the best dressed in this line-up. The rest look like the are going to a S&M convention.

Did You Not Learn From Your Sister’s Mistakes? Award
Big sister Beyonce passed the baton onto Solange Knowles, but she fumbled, dropped the baton and left the house looking like this.

The dress has Tina Knowles stench all over it, and her hair looks like the comb-over that men who are balding adopt, to cover a shiny thinning spot and when, OH when, is she going to lose the two tone nail varnish?

The only saving grace are her cut-out wedged sandals.

Worst Creases Award
As small as this dress is, it would have taken Cassie no more than 2 minutes to iron it.

Worst Make-Up Award
Either someone punched Lil Kim in the face, or that big purple thing on the side of her face is make-up.

Her hideous lace wig looks like it came from the same shop as Tyra Banks.

Worst Embellishments Award
What are those embellishments on Alicia Keys’ Pollini Fall 2008 dress, fans or hair colour swatches?

Other than that, this would have been a stunning dress, as I adore the colour on her.

Music Junkie has all the coverage from the BET Awards including winners and performances.

30.03.08 Best Dressed

2008 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards – Best Dressed


Best Californian Girl Award
Cameron Diaz arrived on the orange carpet wearing a white shrug over her strapless Missoni Spring 2008 dress and Christian Louboutin Passmule Patent Sandals in white.

Best Dress/Shoes Combo Award
Even though I am not a fan of grey, I do like Ashlee Simpson’s Alexander McQueen strapless belted dress, mostly because she offset the dull grey with a bright orange pair of Christian Louboutin Passmule Patent Sandals.

I love her Chanel cuff bracelet.

Most Improved Award
From wearing a baby’s outfit with a dummy at the MTV Music Awards, to wearing this embellished Betsey Johnson Spring 2008 strapless hot pink, black trimmed taffeta and tulle dress, Lil Mama has come a long way.

Most Colourful/Best Smile Award
I just love the colourful design on Brenda Song’s dress.

Best Shoes Award
I was just about to put Jordin Sparks in the worst category for those red streaks in her hair when I spotted her Giuseppe Zanotti Architectural Wedge Sandal’s. I have been wanting these sandals forever, but can never find them in my size.

Do I need these sandal’s when I am already 5ft 11ins? No.

Do I still want them? Yes.

Would I be able to walk in them? Probably not.

Jordin is wearing a red strapless dress from Diane von Furstenberg.

Most Improved Posing Award
Miley Cyrus decided against her ‘Playboy bunny’ pouting, which she thought was a good look for the Oscars. She was wrong.

On this occasion she turned down the hooch and looked cute in this black embellished Stella McCartney Rhinestone paillette mini dress. She completed her look with a pair of red satin ABS peep toes.

Golden Girl Award
America Ferrera is glowing in this David Meister gold dress, matched with a gold clutch and gold wedges.

Best Dressed Under 15 Award
No hair extensions, no make-up, no nail varnish, no mini dresses. Abigail Breslin is age appropriate. Something that does not always apply to Miley Cyrus.

Best Pregnant Award
Jessica Alba green shimmering Corey Lynn Calter Spring 2008 gown, is stunning on her. With her pregnancy comes great style.

Best Mother/Son Combo Award
Nia Long always brings her little man to this event, and they always look so cute together.

Nia is wearing an open neck Marc by Marc Jacobs Night Blossom dress with taupe and white Sergi Rossi shoes.

Most Cute Award
Victoria Justice, isn’t she just adorable?

A mini Vanessa Hudgens in the making.

2008 NAACP Image Awards

Vanessa Williams looked youthful and radiant in this stunning one-shouldered Zuhair Murad gown.

This Marchesa Spring 2008 dress America Ferrera is wearing makes up for the grey dress she wore to the SAG Awards.

I love the colour on her and the embellished shoulder and bust-line detail.

Kate Walsh is stunning in this midnight blue embellished one-shouldered gown, which gives her a very sexy silhouette.

I love her darker ‘do.

Meagan Good looked to be in the Valentine’s Day spirit as she held a red rose whilst wearing a pink Herve Leger dress.

Jordin Sparks is the epitome of dull in this chocolate strapless gown. I can not believe she won Best Newcomer at this event. It makes me question the validity of these awards.

I am glad that Eva Pigford got rid of the long weave, as this style suits her much better.

I am loving the back of this dress more than the front.

Taraji Henson’s looks to be wearing a fanny pack, but she is actually just showing off her hot pink bag.
