Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Fan Bing Bing: I was really disappointed that pictures of my girl at the 2011 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala didn’t show up until this morning. She glowed wearing a fuchsia pink Louis Vuitton strapless ruffled bustier gown. I love that she opted for a more natural look again, as this is when her beauty really shines through. LV L’Ame du Voyage collection jewels and a LV minaudiere completed her look.

Jane Fonda: The actress looked stunning wearing a Roberto Cavalli long sleeve beaded gown. I just love her emerald Chopard earrings which are the perfect complement to her look.

Charlene Wittstock: The blonde beauty arrived with her fiancé Prince Albert of Monaco wearing a Giorgio Armani Privé dove grey gown. Her multi-layered off-the-shoulder gown was embellished with crystals around the empire waist.

Last night InStyle UK hosted a party to celebrate the iconic glamour of Dolce & Gabbana.

Some of the UK finest celebs turned out to toast the Italian fashion house.

Actress Bonnie Wright paid homage to the designers by wearing one of their classic bustier dresses, which we’ve seen a thousand times yet it never goes out of style.

Singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor was one of the few who opted to wear some colour. She wore a Dolce & Gabbana crushed satin purple sleeveless dress.

It looks like she didn’t only get a dress from the Lanvin for H&M collection, she also got one of their necklaces too. (jealous)

Former Sugababes singer Keisha Buchanan paired a Corre Nelson ensemble with a Fiona Packston necklace and Finsk shoes.

These have to be the most interesting black pumps I’ve seen in a while.

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld who’s usually loves to wear fitted mini dresses opted for a black silk vintage dress which she teamed with a Coco de Mer belt and an Alexander McQueen clutch.

There was a lot of black at this event, but it wouldn’t quite be a Dolce & Gabbana party without a lot of stars the designers favourite colour.

World-renowned pastry chef, Claire Clark catered the Harvey Nichols Champagne tea party in honour of designer Emilio de la Morena.

The designer must have welcomed this event after busily preparing his Spring 2011 collection which was presented during London Fashion Week.

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld hosted the event which was attended by many celebrities including her mother.

As host Julia was lucky enough to wear a straight-off-the-runway Emilio de la Morena Spring 2011 look.

Her apron-style mini dress has coloured stripes and draped details on the hips.

Black pumps complete her look.

Like Leighton Meester, Julia is a huge fan of Emilio de la Morena as she’s worn his pieces many times before.

Last night Giorgio Armani hosted a cocktail party on board his boat to honor the extraordinary work of the cast and crew of the upcoming Doug Liman-directed thriller “Fair Game.”

I was giddily excited to see Julia Restoin-Roitfeld wearing an Emilio de la Morena dress from the Fall 2010 collection.

I’m a huge fan the Spanish designer – like Leighton Meester – so always wish to see more of his work on the red carpet.

This dress is spectacular, from the mix of colours to the draped front to the leather skirt with the laser cut-outs.

Thankfully her shoes blend into the tarmac.

Carine Roitfeld also attended wearing her favourite French label – Balmain.

She opted for a modified dress from the Fall 2010 collection.

I say modified, but it wouldn’t surprise me if they custom-made this dress for Carine because not only is the dress longer, but it has an asymmetrical hem and the shoulders are smoothed out to make the dress more chic, more Carine.

Carine wore her Balmain dress with Azzedine Alaia lace up sandals which she has wears religious.

The first time I noticed them was during 2008 Cannes Film Festival.

You may remember the that lovely Zoe Saldana wore the runway version to “The Losers” LA premiere last month.

When I first learnt of this event I was really excited to see some great red carpet action, then I saw Lindsay Lohan.

We’ll have to wait until the Ungaro Spring 2010 show on Sunday, but her black lace panel jumpsuit and sequined wrap could very well be a preview of her new collection.

Lindsay looks very happy here, but I wonder how happy she will be when she learns that many buyers have declined their invitations to the Ungaro show due to her participation.

It may not be the sisterly thing to do, but it’s the right thing to do.

Carine Roitfeld wore the same vintage YSL dress, black blazer and Alaia heels she wore to the Burberry Spring 2010 presentation.

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld wore the same white Alexander Wang Spring 2009 white jersey dress we have seen on her many times before.

And Anna Wintour wore that snake-skin coat we have seen on her a few times recently.

So what I thought was going to be a great event, turned into a complete wash out.

Worst Dress Award
We’ve seen this Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2009 dress on Anne Hathaway and a sequined version on Amber Valletta. Both were beautifully styled.

Fabiola Beracasa decided to wear her blue snake-skin dress with a feathered concoction to add more dimension to her look, plus suede purple booties and a crazy updo.

Not a good look. In fact she looks quite scary.

You Can’t Wear Those Boots With That Dress Award
What was Agyness Deyn thinking?

She was wearing a pretty nude covered in gold sequined Anna Sui dress but it all falls apart the second she opted for those Marc by Marc Jacobs biker boots.

And just to stick a further nail in the coffin, she opted to wear a leather biker jacket.

I hate this schizophrenic style off dressing. You’re either wearing a cute sequined dress with strappy heels, or you’re a biker chick.

Pick a lane and stay in it.

This really hurts as I love Lake Bell.

Just a tiny pop of colour – even red lips – would have made a huge bit of different in this head-to-toe Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 look.

Looking as somber as she does doesn’t quite help either, plus I feel like ripping those sleeves off.

Nice Dress But…Award
Olivia Palermo wore a beautiful David Meister pink satin dress with an embellished panel on the bodice, and a peplum on the waist, but I’m perplexed as to why she would want to wear this kind of dress when she clearly doesn’t have the bust for it.

She looks like a child playing dress up in mummy’s clothes.

I’m thankful that she decided not to wear her favourite YSL Tribute sandals, instead she wore Topshop Passion Frill sandals.

Now would she please…oh please change that hairstyle.

Worst Posing Award
I couldn’t much focus on Tallulah Willis’ Calvin Klein Resort 2010 off-the-shoulder dress, because all I kept thinking about was pulling her shoulders back.

Bad posture just throws me.

Balmain With Tights Again? *eye roll* Award
I know I’m going to get lynched for this, but I just don’t understand Julia Restoin-Roitfeld’s obsession with wearing such short Balmain dresses then opting for tights.

The archetypal Balmain girl doesn’t wear tights imo. She has the confidence to walk tall in her mini dress, bold and sassy.

That being said I do love her black sequined dress and the Jessica Rabbit silhouette it gives her, but I think less bold runway version would have suited her better.

Fails To Flatter Award
Michelle Trachtenberg wore a very unflattering Behnaz Sarafpour Resort 2009 ensemble. She used to get it right all the time now she’s very inconsistent.
