Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Best Dressed Award
January Jones is never boring on the red carpet.

She always wows me and last night was no exception.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress wore a futuristic Versace mint green gown, with flowing skirt and a structured corset.

She gave me one of very few wow moments on the red carpet.

Best Dressed Runner Up/Best Marchesa Award
Olivia Wilde was one of the first actresses to hit the red carpet last night and was my Best Dressed for the whole of E! Live from the Red Carpet show until I saw January.

Her mint green chiffon embroidered Marchesa Spring 2010 gown with an illusion panel on the bodice is simply exquisite.

She wears the gown so well, so elegantly as we would expected from the beautiful actress.

Best Bling/Golden Girl Award
I do like a bit of bling on the red carpet and it was kindly provided by Kristin Chenoweth who sparkled wearing a crystal encrusted Zuhair Murad’s Haute Couture Spring 2009 mini dress, with gunmetal grey heels and a matching clutch.

I’m so glad she wore the dress without the runway belt.

Best Versace/Lady In Red Award
WOW.

Blake Lively is truly back.

After a disappointing 2008, she has continued to wow me in 2009.

Some of you like that Atlanta Housewife on E! will think this is too sexy. I say it’s sexy enough, and she has the body for it so why not wear a stunning red Versace Fall 2009 gown like this.

Best Maternity Award
I’m so glad Heidi Klum didn’t wear a tent like at the Costume Institute Gala.

Being pregnant is not a crime so why should she cover up?

I think she looks stunning in her Marchesa custom-made gown, which bares a slight resemblance to the Resort 2010 gown presented as they both have beaded a beaded bodice.

Her lace train is what I really love about this dress.

Gowns, Maternity, Bridal and accessories. Is there nothing that Georgina Chapman can’t do?

It Took Me A While, But I Love It Award
At first I was really unsure about Kate Walsh’s J. Mendel Spring 2010 crystal blue pleated strapless gown, as I thought it was unflattering.

But the more I looked at it, the more I appreciated the soft draping, and how beautiful the colour looked on her.

The actress paired her dress with and Aldo clutch.

Most Improved Award
Dana Delany is usually a hot mess on the red carpet, but she opted for a stunning purple Basil Soda Fall 2009 Couture strapless gown.

Excluding the embroidered bodice it’s quite a simple gown.

Slinkiest Silhouette Award
I love a mermaid gown that gives the wearer a Jessica Rabbit style silhouette.

Jennifer Carpenter’s Zuhair Murad Fall 2009 one shoulder nude tulle gown does that.

The gown has intricate black beading thought-out with a dramatic rosette detail on the bodice.

Better Than The Runway Award
I was really intrigued by Mila Kunis Monique Lhuillier Fall 2009 maroon tulle gown because of the way she had made it work for her on the red carpet.

I really dislike the runway styling, so I’m glad Mila has made me see this dress in a more positive light.

She accessorized with Fred Leighton jewels.

Interesting Change Of Direction Award
For the first time in a while I actually love Chloe Sevigny’s look.

I’m not one who get carried away with her “style icon” tag, I just judge her look by look and this Isaac Mizrahi Resort 2010 one-shoulder polka dot gown I love.

I also love the fact that it’s not an obvious choice.

50 And Fabulous Award
I have a soft spot for Marcia Gay Harden, she reminds me a lot o Helen Mirren in that she’s not afraid to show off her cleavage, like she does in this sequined Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2009 gown.

I love how the sash gives her a tiny waist, to give her an perfect hourglass figure.

Best Couture Award
This bold blue Basil Soda Fall 2008 gown may have a lot going on for you, but it all works for me.

I got texture, embellishments and it beautiful. All the ingredients need for a stunning couture gown.

Thank God She Pulled Her Hair Back Award
I was so happy that Drew Barrymore wore her hair tied back, because that black stripe she had in her hair last week would’ve been disastrous with this beautiful Monique Lhuillier blush gown.

Best Use Of Tulle Award
Rose Byrne was literally picking her gown up as she walked along the red carpet, as there was so much of it.

I loved this Valentino gown.

It was the perfect colour for her, despite it’s size she didn’t get lost in it, and the embellishment were beautiful.

Curvalicious Award
How can you not love Christina Hendricks? She is just too fabulous for words in her L’Wren Scott navy and black lace gown.

I would’ve adored her in a colourful gown, but she looks this hot it doesn’t matter.

Matchy Matchy Award
Ginnifer Goodwin wore a fuschia pink YSL strapless dress.

The dress matched her Brian Atwood heels and her clutch.

The stunning necklace is what pulls this whole look together and I absolutely adore it.

Best Necklace Award
Mariska Hargitay opted for a Carolina Herrera silver shimmering gown, which fitted her like a glove.

Best Embellished Gown Award
Perrey Reeves wore an ivory Naeem Khan chiffon empire waist short sleeve V-front gown with crystal beading.

It’s not unusual for Victoria Beckham to be first when it comes to fashion. She was the first to wear these Stella McCartney ankle zip skinny ombre jeans whilst making her way through Heathrow airport earlier this year.

She wore them with her leather Balmain jacket, Loewe hat, Christian Louboutin’s and white Kelly Travel bag.

Model/actress Lily Cole wore the same jeans with a loose fitting dusky pink top and multi-coloured strappy heels to “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” Photo Call during Cannes Film Festival.

Kate Walsh wore hers with a sparkling Stella McCartney tank top during a photo call at the Monte Carlo TV Festival.

And finally the designer of these beautiful jeans – Stella McCartney – wore hers with a cropped jacket from her Resort 2010 collection to the presentation of her new collection at “The Corner” in Berlin.

This is a tough one, because everyone looks great minus Lily because I really dislike her shoes.

Stella wins this for me, as her look is the most effortless and most chic.

These jeans are available to purchase from Net-A-Porter international for £157.50/€206.50.

If I was to write a list of red carpet rules one of them would be to keep the neck bare when wearing a strapless dress, then I see Katherine Heigl’s stunning chunky David Yurman pearls with her Lanvin Fall 2009 beige tulle strapless dress and I instantly ditch the rules.

That is because the yellow and white pearls really add some pizazz to her look and as a result she glows.

Beige pumps and a classic updo complete this perfect look.

Kate Walsh supported her former colleague wearing a cute sleeveless blazer with matching white shorts by Isabella Oliver.

Gold accessories including Moschino Cheap and Chic metallic gold cut out peep toe wedges, a gold clutch and gold bangles complete this summer fresh look.

OK, I think it’s official I’m in love with Venus Williams’ style at the moment.

She is on fire and I hope she progresses to even better looks in the future.

On this occasion the Wimbledon runner up opted for a coral strapless dress with bejeweled sandals and a lavender stone choker.

As great as Serena Williams looked at the ESPY Awards, she really lets herself down here for wearing this plunging black dress without some support.

No bra, no likey.

Jewel lets her green maxi Temperley London dress with an embroidered neckline do all the talking, as the singer opts for a minimal jewelry.

When I saw Emily Deschanel on red carpet wearing this Gustavo Cadile strapless gown I instantly recognised it, because I tried it on during New York Fashion Week, when I visited the designer at his Manhattan studio.

The outstanding rose tulle gown is from Gustavo Cadile’s Fall 2009 collection. I adore the tiered skirt which make it feel like a princess gown.

I was surprised that Emily wore a black knotted belt with the dress, because the pink bejeweled ribbon was perfect. But either way it works.

I love that she didn’t add too many jewels, or even carry a clutch as this dress stands alone.

I’m so honoured to have tried on this gown, and I can imagine the butterflies she had when she put on this gown.

Kate Walsh showed off her very sassy side in a baby blue Missoni dress, with a thigh high split.

For some reason I’m more in love with her hair. Those curls are so cute and look so bouncy.

Jennifer Love Hewitt arrived with her actor boyfriend Jamie Kennedy looking exquisite wearing a nude gown. She was radiating beauty. I’ve never been so taken by her.

This gown with a risqué plunging neckline more than makes up for the previous secretary chic look.

I don’t know why but I was totally captivated by Spanish actress Marta Torne.

Her porcelain skin, the sexy silhouette of her slate grey strapless ruched bodice gown, and those bold red lips are all perfect. Not a single fault can I find.

Such a quiet elegant beauty, I adore her here.

Lori Loughlin looks amazing again. This time wearing a navy blue haltered gown, with an embellished neckline.

Her look was complete with a gold box clutch which complemented the gold detail on her gown.

Kim Kardashian for me the worst dressed at this event. She did a complete 180 from her previous looks.

I love her hair and make-up, but the Ports 1961 strapless gown is way too gaudy for my liking. The runway version wouldn’t have suited her either.

This is a bit of a step back imo.

Kim Kardashian’s first look at this festival was a black Lela Rose sleeveless dress with a contrast grosgrain belt and a disc hem.

Her sophisticated look was paired with black Jil Sander heels.

She showed off her womanly curves in an ultra-feminine one-shouldered dusky pink dress for her second look. Nude Louboutin’s completed my favourite look of the three.

Kim brought out the sunshine wearing a flirty Ina Soltani strapless yellow dress with a ruffled bodice, which she also wore with nude Louboutin’s.

You will notice in all of these looks that Kim doesn’t wear any accessories, she shines on her own.  I’m glad to see her return to a more respectable style of dressing after a slight detour to tackyville.

Emily Deschanel attended a photocall  “Bones” wearing a red and white asymmetrical print loose fitting summer dress.

You’ll notice that she’s wearing the same heels which Stella McCartney wore last week in nude.

I love this dress, as it very much reminds me of a vintage dress I have in my closet.

Kate Walsh was there to promote “Private Practice” and she looked radiant, as she posed for photographers, in a light-blue mini dress. The look was completed with nude Christian Louboutin strappy sandals.

Lori Loughlin was there to promote the hit TV series “90210″. She glowed in the sunshine wearing an Alexander McQueen fuschia pink asymmetrical dress.

With the wrong accessories this look could have come off tacky, but Lori wore nude peep-toes and simple silvers accessories.

Jennifer Love Hewitt was promoting “Ghost Whisperer” and opted for a very formal secretary type of look, which goes against the summery looks everyone else was wearing at this event, so this is my least favourite look.

Christian Louboutin Differa sandals complete the look and make their 100 appearance on the red carpet.

Wowaz.

Heather Graham is smokin’ hot wearing a red corseted Dolce & Gabbana dress. I’m sure the traffic behind her was at a standstill as jaws hit the dashboard.

The actress wore her sexy dress with the same Jimmy Choo Flynn strappy sandals she wore to other event recently, plus a gold metallic purse.

I would have preferred a clutch, but when she looks this hot, who’s looking at the purse?

I really love the colour combination of Kate Walsh’s Stella McCartney Pre-Fall red wool skirt and purple silk sleeveless top. The colours really pop, and she wears her ensemble with a great stance, than the model.

This is what I love to see on the red carpet, someone who’s not afraid of colour.

Kristen Bell looked stunning in a Brian Reyes Fall 2009 belted dress, with a delicate lace overlay.

I always think of Kristen as a tween, but when I see her standing so elegantly in her stunning dress, I’m reminded that she is a gorgeous confident young woman.

As much as I adored her in this dress, her Brian Atwood pumps, Bally striped box clutch and a House of Lavande statement necklace, really perfect the look.

Yes I’m gushing.

It’s back.

The Alexander McQueen ‘Squeeze It’ clutch which Audrina Patridge is so very fond of, is back on the red carpet after missing one event.

The star carried her clutch, whilst wearing a sexy chocolate brown silk Diane von Furstenberg dress, with an Alexander McQueen black patent belt, and YSL Lola heels.

I think Audrina is the only reality TV star to have not worn Trib Two’s.

With her strappy Prada heels, Ashley Olsen wore a black slip dress from her favourite brand Calvin Klein.

As plain as the dress is, it allows her natural gorgeousness to shine through.

Mary-Kate Olsen channels her inner John Lennon, with rose tinted glasses, to evoke a 60s style moment.

I would’ve liked to have seen more of her printed mini dress, but its lost under her black oversized blazer.

She also wears Prada heels, and carries a very interesting fringed bag.

Eva Mendes’ printed maxi dress, feels better suited to a day shopping with her girls at The Grove, but it is gorgeous.
