Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Joy Bryant attended the Escada Benefit for P.S. Arts at the SLS Hotel Beverly Hills Garden Terrace last night.

The model/actress wore a Jonathan Saunders for Escada Sport Resort 2012 dress.

This is the first time we’re seeing a celebrity wear a look from this collection.

Her black houndstooth print drop-waist dress has a sporty green flash stripe on each sleeve.

I love the dress as it’s so fun and youthful.

I hope we see more of this collection worn by celebrities on the red carpet, I just hope they don’t also pair their dresses with Moccasin boots.

When I saw Joy Bryant arrive at the 2010 Costume Institute Gala wearing a Marchesa Spring 2010 gown my first reaction was for my jaw to drop to my keyboard.

From the frothy sleeves to the chiffon train I’m in cloud nine.

This nude silk tulle hand painted draped gown is so stunning, but I think Joy should’ve worn this look without jewelery and carried a silver clutch.

The black clutch is not rocking my world.

Donatella Versace was the host at The Art of Elysium “Bright Lights” with Versus fundraiser on Friday.

Whilst her guest Joy Bryant was decked out in a Versus Fall 2010 printed tee and black pants, Donatella was the glamorous host wearing a strapless dress from her Versace Spring 2010.

The dress is modified into a strapless dress as Donatella has already worn the white version earlier this year.

I would’ve loved to have seen Joy wearing one of the mini dresses, she certainly has the legs to work the look.

Coco Rocha doesn’t quite ooze that fierceness that she used to, but she still looks gorgeous wearing a black and red floral print strapless Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2009 dress.

Maybe the reason I’m not crazy about this look is because I’ve seen it so many times before.

Also those Christian Louboutin ankle boots still remind me of a horses head every time I look at them.

Lydia Hearst was the model used to present the Marc Bouwer Spring 2010 collection, and I guess she loved the collection so much that she wore a red sequined mini dress with structured shoulders to this event.

Her dress is paired with silver Christian Louboutin Differa sandals and a black clutch.

If you thought Bally only did shoes and handbags, then you were mistaken as Joy Bryant wore Bally Fall 2009 feather print silk maxi dress with an asymmetrical sleeve to this event.

I love the dress, but those clunky brown boots are just horrific.

Many of you complain about Ginnifer Goodwin and Victoria Beckham never smiling, but you should add Lake Bell to that list too.

Not only is she not smiling here, but she looks quite peeved.

A nice smile would have warmed up this cute look, as I love her jacquard dress with a peplum at the waist.

Tinsley Mortimer looks like a real-life Barbie wearing a gold strapless Dior dress, paired with gold t-bar heels and a Jimmy Choo animal print clutch.

Olivia Palmero has said in the past that she’s a Topshop addict.

Well she doesn’t to disprove that fact by wearing a Topshop studded jacket paired with a metallic dress and blue suede ankle boots.

Like Olivia, Nicky Hilton opted for a very casual look for this event.

Keeping the studded theme going she wore a studded vest, paired with a white tank, black mini skirt and Brian Atwood Lola pumps.

Julie Macklowe will be the envy of every celebrity and socialite in New York, as she was the first to get her hands on the Jason Wu Spring 2010 collection.

She walked the red carpet wearing a multi print sculptural dress, paired with high heeled pumps and a silver clutch.

Karolina Kurkova delicately caressed her baby bump with a stunning silver gown from the Marchesa Spring 2008 collection.

Three quarters of the bodice was embellished, with a chiffon detail covering her other shoulder and draping through-out the rest of the gown.

Her look was paired with silver heels.

I think we could have a maternity style face-off between Heidi Klum and Karolina.

Joy Bryant sticks to her tried, trusted and favourite brand.

This time the fresh faced beauty wore a red and black print Missoni Pre-Fall 2009 modified gown which was cinched in at the waist with a red belt.

If someone has offered me this Zac Posen Resort 2010 gown with voluminous sleeves, I would have declined after seeing the runway picture.

But on Mischa Barton the gown is outstanding.

She used a large chunky gold belt and makes the gown slightly off-the-shoulder, swept her hair over the opposite shoulder as if my magic, I’ve fallen in love with the gown.

Patricia Clarkson is elegant as always wearing a one shoulder Gucci gown, with a diamante detailing which gathers the dress towards her hip.

Flawless make-up and a black Gucci clutch complete the look.

Selita Ebanks, Vice Chair of the New Yorkers for Children Gala looked amazing wearing a J. Mendel Spring 2010 citron draped gown.

I tend to associate Victoria’s Secret models with bod-con mini dress, but Selita temporarily blows that stereotype out of the water.

The model wore Slane & Slane jewelry and carried a Nancy Gonzalez clutch to complete her BDOTW worthy look.

It’s been a while since we have seen Joy Bryant on the red carpet, but during her time-out one this hasn’t changed.

Her love for Missoni.

At this event she wore a leaf print Missoni Fall 2009 stone silk dress with bold multi-coloured leaf print.

This is the perfect transitional look for fall.

Hilary Rhoda sparkled wearing a sterling silver ombre paillette halter Naeem Khan Spring 2009 dress with very deep plunge.

Matching strappy sandals and clutch complete this sexy look.

I wasn’t at all crazy about this Cavlin Klein Resort 2010 blue/grey off-the-shoulder dress when I saw it on the runway, but Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann injects a bit of personality and body into the dress to make it much more appealing.

Alina Cho wears a purple Oscar de la Renta pleated duchess satin gown which was my favourite from the Fall 2009 collection.

I was going to say I prefer the runway belt, but she is wearing the runway belt. The lighting makes them appear different.

Ines Rivero wears the same zebra print Naeem Khan Resort 2009 gown which Eva Longoria wore to Roselyn Sanchez wedding.

Mary J Blige wore a rose strapless crepe Gucci gown with bow detailing on the hip.

I love this colour on her, but as always the tattoos turn me off.

Her look was paired with a black python Gucci clutch.

Tinsley Mortimer is wearing my favourite colour of at the moment – electric blue.

Her dress was paired with a pair of grey heels.

I wonder if they will become her new favourites.
