Red Carpet Fashion Awards

It’s about time.

I pleased to present you with Julia Roberts wearing something other than black.

I’m also happy that someone other than Maggie Gyllenhaal has realised how amazing the Dries Van Noten Fall 2010 collection is.

Julia was in Tokyo last night for the “Eat Love Pray” photocall wearing a multi-coloured floral print silk long sleeved Dries Van Noten Fall 2010 dress with a matching belt.

What also surprised me about this look is that Julia’s wearing green Celine Pre-Fall 2010 ankle strap heels.

It would have been so easy for Julia to opt for black pumps with this look so I’m grateful she took a risk for this event.

This is a truly momentous week.

First Angelina two for two not black, now Julia is shunning black in favour of colour.

Don’t you just love her Jamie Wolf earrings?

I would like to apologize in advance for the lack of enthusiasm for this post and no doubt future Julia Roberts posts during the “Eat Pray Love” promotional tour.

Unlike Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie who will throw us a bone at least once during a promotional tour. I’m not holding out the same hope from Julia.

It will be black black and black all the way and I couldn’t be more underwhelmed.

Last night at the New York “Eat Pray Love” Premiere Julia gave us…you guess it head-to-toe black starting from her Stella McCartney blazer, to her Diane von Furstenberg shorts, right down to her Roger Vivier sandals.

The only pop of colour comes from her collection of Coomi bangles and her stunning earrings.

I’ll happily admit she looks gorgeous, stunning in fact, but it feels like groundhog day.

Julia Roberts appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman” on Wednesday night to promote her new drama, “Eat Pray Love.”

The Oscar winning actress said that she thinks she’s too old for romantic comedy movies.

As a 42-year-old married mother of five-year-old twins she said, “I think I’m too old for those silly situations of unrequited love! It becomes less plausible when you’re in the 40s to be walking down in the hallways because a boy walks by! I’ve read a couple lately that are more original and more mature, but they just didn’t seem to fit for me.”

The star ditched her usual head-to-toe black to wear a black and white Stella McCartney Resort 2011 ensemble on the show.

Her look included a white Stella McCartney blazer with black lapels which were paired with a black top, black Stella McCartney tapered pants and black sandals.

I was expecting her whole promotional tour to be all black, so to start off with a touch of white could be a sign of more colourful things to come but I very much doubt it.

This is such a so cute picture of Julia Roberts with her niece Emma Roberts who both attended the “Valentine’s Day” LA Premiere last night.

I love the confidence oozing from young Emma as she poses alongside her famous Auntie.

Julia opted for a black organza Christian Dior Resort 2010 dress with a fold detail on the waist.

It doesn’t show up on these pictures too well, but the dress is covered with embroidered details.

I would’ve fainted if Julia opted for the runway version.

Jimmy Choo “Nina” sandals complete the look.

Emma opted for a Jenny Packham Spring 2010 crystal encrusted mini halter dress which kind of has a ’60s vibe to it.

She paired her dress with Brian Atwood silver “Kendall” shoes.

I really like both these looks.

Worst Dressed Award
I never liked this Zac Posen Resort 2010 dress on the runway, and I’m sorry to say but I think it’s even worse on Tina Fey.

The print is quite garish and I just hate this awkward length on the skirt.

The only thing I did like were her nude satin Christian Louboutin bow T dorect peep toe d’orsay heels.

Most Predictable Award
We get it, we get it Mariah Carey.

You’ve got big boobs, but must show them off at every occasion?

I did applaud Mariah’s attempt become more sophisticated on the red carpet, but she’s slowly slipped back to tackyville.

Next time please cover up the twins and try to discover what demure and sophisticated means.

Inappropriately Dressed Award
Perrey Reeves looks great in her black and teal Herve Leger dress, but it’s NOT event appropriate.

Had it been a gown it would’ve worked better for me, but this dress was way to casual.

I Guess You Couldn’t Be Bothered To Dress Up Award
Julia Roberts wore a very simple black knee-length vintage YSL dress.  So simple it bored me to tears.

OK the necklace jazzes it up a bit, but I can’t help feeling that her poor stylist had to fight to get her to wear it.

She carried a Christian Louboutin clutch.

Most Disappointed Award
The one person I was looking forward to seeing on this red carpet was Carey Mulligan.

Unfortunately I wasn’t wowed by her navy and black organza Nina Ricci Spring 2010 modified gown.

I think the runway version is way more interesting with the asymmetrical neckline and the lace skirt.

Her look was completed with Fred Leighton jewels.

Worst Supported Award
For someone who’s spent a lot of time promoting bra’s I was very surprised at Heidi Klum’s lack of support in her ice blue Roberto Cavalli dress.

Too Sombre Award
Maybe it was the weather but I just wasn’t feeling the lack of colour in January Jones’ look.

Normally she wears lots of bright colours, but it was  her black Lanvin gown really gave me the blues.

I also really disliked that heavy black headband.

Charlize Theron never fails to give us the wow factor, even if she is wearing just a LBD.

The actress arrived at this event looking beautiful and statuesque, wearing a long sleeved black Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 lace dress, with a ruffled detail going down one side.

The dress was presented with a belt, which Charlize didn’t wear. Instead she accessorized with stunning jewels, a metallic clutch and metallic python heels.

I wasn’t a fan of the Bottega Veneta Fall 2009 collection with their built-in underwire bra’s, but seeing this gown on Christie Turlington, I must admit I’m now in love.

Some times you need to see a dress off the runway, to really appreciate it.

Woot woot. Julia Roberts is not wearing head-to-black.

You can’t imagine how I happy I was to see her not wearing a dress in her signature colour.

The actress arrived wearing a white jacquard Dolce & Gabbana sheath dress, with a black cardigan and black square toe heels.

Some of you may be shocked by what Rita Wilson is wearing, but I’m not. She’s never played it safe on the red carpet, and this is always admirable in my books.

Tom Hanks’ wife wore a paillette covered v-neck dress, with feathered shoulders.

I can’t say I’m crazy about her shoe choice, but everything else works for me.
