Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

This is one of those rare occasions in which Joy Bryant actually wore make-up, and she was even more stunning.

At the 2008 VH1 Hip Hop Honors back in October, Joy wore this graphic print Matthew Williamson Spring 2009 mini dress, with the black leather belt, and neon yellow strappy sandals as presented on the runway.

Alexis Bledel changed the look of the dress, when she attended the launch of the Matthew Williamson for H&M collection in New York.

She wore her dress without the belt, and with Sergio Rossi elasticated strappy ankle sandals.

As much as we tend to complain about someone wearing a head-to-toe runway look, Joy’s runway accessories make this look work, especially with the belt, so she wins for me.

Diane Kruger was the Best Dressed at this event wearing a Marchesa Fall 2009 asymmetrical dress.

She’s beautiful, but the dress is exquisite. I love the feathered flower details cascading down the shoulder, and on the skirt of this lilac tulle draped dress.

I love how her hair is pulled back, so we get to see the stunning details on her dress.

The actress completes her look with Fendi bow-front peep-toes, and an Alexander McQueen box clutch.

This is the first Runway to Red Carpet I’ve done using my own runway picture. I took the picture of the model when I attended the Marchesa Fall 2009 presentation back in February during New York Fashion Week.


There was a time when Emmy Rossum was forever the prom-queen, but this delicate baby blue Christian Dior Resort 2009 gown is simply perfect for the occasion.

The breath-taking tiered gown, with an embellished waist band is so ethereal, so dreamy, and so magical.

Again I’m loving the hair pulled back with a single braid, and the icy accessories compliment the gown so well.


I don’t know what I am lusting over more. Joy Bryant’s Zac Posen Fall 2009 floaty floral dress, or her metallic ankle strap heels from the same collection.

Does this woman ever have a day off looking fabulous? This is just so easy for her, and she’s still not wearing any make-up on the red carpet.


Spanish supermodel Eugenia Silva sparkled in her golden sequined Giorgio Armani Spring 2009 gown.

When you are this beautiful, you don’t need many accessories, just a gorgeous dress, and a megawatt smile.


The only watchable thing about The City is Olivia Palermo, and her bitchy evil ways. What I can’t bare to look at, is her in this Zac Posen gown.

Talk about unflattering. There are so many dresses that would have worked from the Zac Posen Spring 2009 collection, but she picked a dress which makes her look like a kid playing dress up in mummy’s clothes.


Socialite Poppy Delevigne wore a taupe flapper style Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 dress, which has also been worn by Shenae Grimes and Mischa Barton.

Poppy’s version is modified from the runway, with a plunging-neckline making it much sexier.

Her look was completed with a leather biker jacket, and a pair of lavender Jimmy Choo satin diamante platform sandals.


Rachel Roy looks chic in a coral long-sleeved dress, which of course is her own design.

I just love how those turquoise earrings pop.


OK, the red hair was cute at first, but I am wishing Coco Rocha’s would return to her dark roots. I really dislike the disheveled way she is styled here.

I’m equally not enthused about her black and white geometric print Zac Posen Spring 2009 dress. It’s not an easy dress to pull off, and I think Coco fails terribly.


I’m not against fur like the stole Drew Barrymore wore yesterday, but when it looks like an animals tail, like Maggie Rizer’s, it gives me the creeps.

What I don’t understand is why the stole in the first instance? It’s wrapped around Maggie in the place where the most detail of this Emanuel Ungaro Fall 2008 gown is.


Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos looked delightful in this one-shouldered lavender print Emanuel Ungaro Resort 2009 gown.

Joy Bryant took a rare night off wearing Missoni, to wear this cute strapless dress, when she attended the Matthew Williamson New York store opening party during New York Fashion Week.

Joy teamed her dress with a cropped black cardigan, tights and black boots, whilst accessorizing with a black clutch, and a large statement necklace.

Ugly Betty actress Becki Newton opted for the same dress at the screening for I Love You, Man last month.

Silver bracelets, and matching silver strappy sandals completed the look.

Joy mutes the look with all the black accessories, so Becki wins for me.

We all have a brand we favour. If I could afford it, mine would be Giambattista Valli and Lanvin.

Charlize Theron’s is Dior, Renee Zellweger’s is Carolina Herrera and Victoria Beckham’s is her own collection.

These I would term ‘official brand ambassador’s’.


Joy Bryant loves Missoni. There’s hardly an event she attends – and there are many – in which she doesn’t wear Missoni.

When I met Joy at the Marchesa Fall 2009 presentation, I asked her why she had a particular love for Missoni.

Is she due to be announced as the face of the brand?

She told me it’s simply because the clothes fit her in terms of her style, and she feels very comfortable when she wears their pieces, and that’s most important for her.

I then went onto inform her that several of us hate her for wearing no make-up on the red carpet, and still looked outstanding beautiful. She started laughing. I guess she sensed I was joking.

I wasn’t. It’s just not fair.
