Red Carpet Fashion Awards

I really wanted to love Gwyneth Paltrow in her nude Donna Karan Spring 2010 one-sleeved gown, but for me something was severely lacking.

On the runway the shorter version had a contrasting tie around the waist to break-up the colour, and I wish Gwynie had added something to her look to do the same.

A brooch, a belt, some bracelets, a necklace…just anything to add a bit of life to her look would have made a huge difference.

The poker straight hair which we’ve seen a million times doesn’t help this look either.

Juliette Binoche thankfully opted for a bright red Lanvin Resort 2010 halter silk gown with a ruffled neckline.

I’m glad she opted out of the red bow on the waist, as it may have thrown the look off balance.

Black accessories and stunning ruby earrings complete the look.

Spanish actress Pilar Lopez de Ayala wore the same black floor-length Chanel Fall 2009 draped skirt which we saw on Jessica Schwarz at the Bambi Awards last week.

Pilar opted for a slightly different sleeveless shirt with a more pronounced collar.

Salma Hayek wore a black Gucci asymmetrical gown, which was accented with a brooch detail on the shoulder.

Not my favourite Salma look it has to be said.

She’s running hot and cold for me on the red carpet.

Of course Jennifer Aniston wore black ,and of course her hairstyle was EXACTLY the same as it’s always been.

Apparently her guest for the night was her hairstylist Chris McMillan.

This guy has the sweetest gig in Hollywood.

What does he do at the most? Trim her hair and run a comb through it?

Hey Chris, why don’t you do something crazy with Jennifer’s hair like put it up in a ponytail or an updo once in a while?

This Groundhog hairstyle is so b.o.r.i.n.g.

Whilst Jennifer proved my point that black dresses can be so boring, Miranda Kerr totally contradicts that by looking gorgeous in this very simple Burberry sleeveless gown.

A fierce pose, some stunning jewels, a sleek updo and gorgeous smile make the difference.

Leila Bekhti wore the same Lanvin strapless dress which Drew Barrymore wore to the He’s Just Not The Into You LA premiere earlier this year.

This Spring 2009 strapless black dress has a contrasting nude silk detail at bust, and kicks out into an airy pouf shape skirt just above the knee.

Two tone heels, and a matching box clutch complete the look.

Gabrielle Lazure stood out wearing a metallic blue Alberta Ferretti Fall 2009 mini dress, with contrasting 3/4 length sleeves.

I’m not so crazy about her metallic ankle strap heels, but the colour works well with her dress.

Julie Gayet wore a very sexy Rue du Mail Spring 2009 dress, with a tulle overlay on the skirt.

The dress is nice enough, but I just love her Roger Vivier colourful heels.

Rachida Brakni’s YSL Spring 2009 black strapless gown doesn’t have much shape to it, but she manages to make this elegant gown work.

A simple bracelet adorns her wrist.

Sarah Marshall wore a navy blue Jitrois leather suit, with crystals embellishing the jacket, and one half of the pants.

What attracted me to this look the most, were Sarah’s Sergio Rossi coil heel sandals.

I fell in love with these unique heels when I saw them in a magazine yesterday, and I can’t believe they’re on the red carpet already.

Amanda Sthers wore an orange strapless mini with her Prada knotted sandals, which are from the Spring 2009 collection.

TV presenter Virginie Efira opted for a sheer pussy-bow black blouse, with a Sonia Rykiel Fall 2008 striped crystal embellished mini skirt.

Juliette Binoche wore her hair down for this premiere, with no floral hair accessories.

She looked elegant in a plunging cream Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2009 gown, with gold and silver sequin details on the bodice, and a silver waistband, from which her gown draped.

Minimal make-up completes the look.

I was quietly hoping Eva Longoria would wow me at Cannes Film Festival, and she has.

The Desperate Housewives star is at the film festival with the L’Oreal team, but she stands out amongst everyone else wearing an ice blue Atelier Versace Spring 2009 gown.

The gown has embroidered studded details, and a stunning shimmering train.

As Just Me said earlier, what a week for Haute Couture.

This is a big gown for petite actress, but she carries it off very well.

She wore her gown with stunning jewels, and dove grey YSL Trib Two’s.

You may remember in her Harper’s Bazaar Singapore interview that she said she owned them in every colour.

I kinda feel sorry for Abbie Cornish.

This was her movie premiere, her night to shine, but she got upstaged by Eva Longoria.

Her Fall 2009 gown, by Australian designer Toni Maticevski isn’t too bad, I love the colour, and it’s quite dramatic with the ruffles, tiers and pleats.

Good choice.

Actress Gabrielle Lazure arrived wearing a very sophisticated Moschino Fall 2009 dress.

This dress is a 2 in one piece.

Underneath it’s a simple simple crepe dress with a tie, but the magic happens with the organza overlay, as it has a red floral print.

Juliette Binoche graced the red carpet wearing a deep purple taffeta strapless Lanvin gown.

I love details on the bodice, and that she kept her décolletage bare, but I’m not so crazy about the floral hair accessory.

I just want to know why?

Why not invite Camilla Belle, Freida Pinto?

Why Phoebe Price?

She’s not a serious actress and she’s definitely not a L’Oreal girl, so I need to know why she is there.

The only thing I can relate to here, is her Mont Charles clutch.

“Late Show with David Letterman”, New York

The black YSL Trib Twos were grinding on my last nerve, but I am happier that celebs are at least wearing the must have shoe in another colour now.

Ginnifer Goodwin wore the dove grey YSL Trib Two slingbacks, with her YSL LBD.

Her dress was in desperate need for some kind of magic, so she wore stunning Roxanne Assounlin for Brian Reyes jewelry to add some pizazz to her look.

Jergens and Skin Cancer Foundation’s Glow In The Dark Event, LA

Rachel Bilson looked super stylish in a navy and white 3.1 Phillip Lim dress.

I love the origami dress on the dress, it very much reminds me of Kristen Stewart’s Paule Ka dress.

Rachel completed her look with Giuseppe Zanotti pumps. I really ? this look.

Boston Common Magazine Cover, Boston

Eliza Dushku celebrated her cover for Boston Common magazine at a party thrown in her honour. The actress wore a silver sequined a-line Moschino Cheap & Chic Spring 2008 dress with a knotted neckline. She completed her look with ballet pumps.

I much prefer this dress belted, to how it was presented on the runway.

“Fast & Furious” Bochum Premiere

Jordana Brewster wore her purple Reem Acra Fall 2008 dress with a black sash, with Christian Louboutin Paquita gladiators.

It appears Jordana and her co-star colour coordinated their red carpet looks.

Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana’s looks both incorporated black and purple.

Michelle’s long black maxi dress was worn with a Catherine Malandrino deep purple embossed leather cropped motorcycle jacket. For once she looks really good, but….

…for some reason the actress was dying to show off her ripped jeans under her dress

*shakes head*

“In-I” Press Conference, Seoul

Juliette Binoche black taffeta dress is stunning, but for some reason she makes hard work of it.

Her hair has that ‘just got out of bed’ look, and her bra strap is peeking out over her dress.

A strapless bra, would have added more elegance to her look.

First Light Movie Awards 2009

Instead of her own expensive Twenty8Twelve collection, Sienna Miller looked to the high street for this event, wearing £95 All Saints Ditzy print dress.

Her look was complete with a Chanel cuff, a black jacket and brown slouchy boots.

I’m desperately waiting for Sienna’s style to evolve.

“Duplicity” New York Premiere

Julia Roberts teased us with a peek of a colour other than black, wearing a floral Christian Dior dress. The only problem is that she kept her black Akris coat on the whole time.

Her look was complete with a pair of Lanvin black satin pumps.

*eye-roll*
