09.02.09 Worst Dressed

2009 Grammy Awards – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
M.I.A is due to give birth any moment, as 8 February was her due date.

Unlike Kimoria Lee Simmons, pregnancy has not soften M.I.A’s style, in fact it has made it a whole lot worse.

I don’t even know where to begin to describe this, but is was created by Manish Arora for his Spring 2009 collection.

Her kicks are GOLA by Christian Lacroix.

Worst Beyonce Impression Award
I should be thankful that Leona Lewis is not wearing tights, but this Randi Rahm nude dress is so 2005 Beyonce.

No original styling here at all.

Worst C-3PO Impression & Over Embellished Award
The embellishments on Paula Abdul’s Basil Soda Spring 2009 yellow pleated gown, reminds me of C-3PO from Star Wars.

The yellow is great on her, but there is too much going on, on her shoulder.

OTT Award
Sadly Kate Beckinsale thought she had arrived at the Oscars.

Yes it’s a really gorgeous Reem Acra gown with a stunning two tone tulle hem, but it’s way too much dress for the Grammy’s. A cute cocktail dress would have been much better.

Still So Desperate Award
This is a perfect cute canary yellow mini for the Grammy’s, but watching Solange Knowles pose on the red carpet, was exhausting. I could smell her desperation from here.

Most Unflattering Award
I love the rose print on Jordin Sparks’ strapless custom made Debra Davenport gown, but it does not flatter her at all.

Maybe I am too used to seeing her legs in a short sassy dresses, because for me, this doesn’t work for her.

180 Award
Just when we thought Paris Hilton had turned a corner in the style stakes, she reverts back to this. Tiny, revealing, trashy.

I had a feeling her good run would end, but just not this soon. She is wearing a Versace Spring 2003 mini.

Space Cadet Award
I am usually a fan of Estelle’s unique style, but this winged space age Bernard Chandran dress with Halston shoes, just leaves me cold.

If she wanted to wear such an edgy dress, why add the big chunky necklace?

A very confusing look.

Worst Black Award
This is two boring black dresses in two days for Duffy.

For someone who started out with a unique style, she certainly has taken several steps back.

Wearing Alberta Ferretti.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Anne Hathaway & Kate Beckinsale


For the second time in RCFA history you guys were undecided in who was your Best Dressed of the Week.

It was a hard week, as the celebrities were out to impress. But you picked Anne Hathaway in Gianfranco Ferré and Kate Beckinsale in J. Mendel.

Two very different styles. One was edgy and interesting. The other slightly predictable, and safe, but there is nothing wrong with that, when the end result was how fabulous Kate Beckinsale looked in her gown.

I was memorized by Anne Hathaway in Balmain. It was unexpected and sexy, so she was my pick of the week.

09.01.09 Best Dressed

2009 Critic’s Choice Awards – Best Dressed

Finally No Black/Best Dressed/Best Couple Award
In my Best Of 2008 Awards, I was praying for colour in 2009 for Angelina Jolie.

Either god answered my prays, or Angelina reads my blog, because here we have Ange looking out-friggin-standing wearing a ice white Max Azria Spring 2009 one-sleeved gown.

She wore her gown with her hair pulled back, pearl earrings and a Herve Leger Spring 2009 clutch.

She is wearing no make-up would you believe. Beauty at its most simplistic.

Oh and Brad does not look to bad either. I am even getting used to that fuzz on his chin.

Most Edgy Award
Anne Hathaway is having an outstanding week.

Sticking to her non-safe approach to dressing, the actress walked the red carpet wearing another dress from the Gianfranco Ferré Spring 2009 collection.

The black side of the dress looks more fitted, whereas the ivory side has wavy fold to add more drama to the dress.

The look is completed with a gold buckled belt, as it was presented on the runway, and black peep-toes.

Best Embellishments Award
This is a slight predictable dress for Eva Longoria, but the turquoise Monique Lhuiller Spring 2009 cocktail dress looks divine on her.

The colour and embellished details on the halter-neck and waist really make her glow.

I am not so sure about the yellow clutch, but I do like the nude pumps and the new bangs.

Golden Girl Award
Evan Rachel Wood’s looks does not have any stench of Dita von Teese, so congratulations to her for exorcising that demon.

The actress sparkled in a gold Jasmine Di Milo dress and Stuart Weitzman shoes.

Best Strapless Gown Award
Gowns are her forte, so it’s no wonder Kate Beckinsale looks drop-dead gorgeous in this deep burgundy strapless J.Mendel Pre-Fall 2009 gown.

On The Fence Award
I am not sure if I like this or hate this.

I believe Katy Perry really pulls this 1940s Dolce & Gabbana boudoir look off, but I’m just not sure if I like it, as it feels like a costume.

Best Black Award
Diane Lane and Josh Brolin are my Best Couple Runners up. They always look so good together.

My ever first girl crush, Diane looks exquisite wearing a black sequined Monique Lhuillier dress, with a black satin bow tied to her waist.

Best Heels Award
Kristin Scott Thomas looked so sophisticated wearing a black YSL bustier dress with YSL satin sandals.

Her look was complete with a simple pearl pendant necklace, diamond earrings, and a black embellished clutch.

Best Dressed Curves
Virginia Madsen looks delightful wearing this blue velvet David Meister strapless gown.

The gathered detail on the bodice, works well as draws you in, and gives her a more defined silhouette.

Best Newcomer Award
I have not featured Freida Pinto on my blog before, but on her first appearance I have nothing but praise.

Her draped white Zac Posen Spring 2009 dress is complimented with her silver peep-toes.

Best Heels/Clutch Combo Award
Amy Adams wore a strapless vibrant blue Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2009 dress which had a structured piece on the hip.

Her clutch and silver Christian Louboutin slingbacks all compliment the silver brooch she added to the hip of her dress.

Just OK Award
Another cute dress for Dakota Fanning. This time it’s Marc Jacobs.

CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute Red Carpet

I am in actual shock that Jessica Biel thought that this two-tone Emanuel Ungaro Fall 2006 dress was a good idea.

The yellow/taupe colour combinations are interesting, but the bodice is too busy and looks unfinished with the knot and asymmetric detail.

Although boring Biel tried to spice things up, it just does not work for me.

Kate Beckinsale wore a satin YSL dress with a gold lining, which very much looked like a robe.

She wore her dress with black patent belt which also had a gold lining and black platform sandals.

Leelee Sobieski wore maxi kimono dress, which was printed with light pastel stripes and circles.

She carried a yellow clutch, which complimented the stripes on her dress and her necklace.

Salma Hayek shows off her asset in this plunge-neck electric blue Gucci gown. Unfortunately it is really creased, and looks like it could do with a iron going over it.

Lucy Liu continues to set the red carpet on fire with another stunning dress.

Her LBD really shines in the light, and the exaggerated hips gives her a nice silhouette.

Eliza Dushku sure does grab your attention in this split to the thigh Dolce & Gabbana gown.

That poor man looks like he is about to keel over.

Selena Gomez wore an ivory ruffled top with a black pencil skirt and black pumps.

I love the look, but the bangs aren’t cut correctly, as the left side appears longer than the right side.

Taylor Swift wore a similar look to Selena, but her dress is a Trina Turk Astra dress with a satin dress, a split V neck and jeweled banding at waist.

She completes her look with black peep-toes.

Rachael Leigh Cook keeps it simple in a LBD, but it is her pink butterfly adorned bag that really stands out.

Molly Sims jeweled brooch really made her two-toned grey black halter Alberta Ferretti gown more interesting.
