“Todo o Nada” Exhibition – Kate Winslet In Gucci

Kate Winslet made her red carpet return at the opening of Mario Testino’s Vanity Fair sponsored photo exhibit, “Todo o Nada” in Madrid this week.

The British actress gave us a sultry pose whilst showing off her toned figure wearing a Gucci mini dress.

She paired her black one shoulder mini dress with nude Louboutin’s and a black clutch.

This is a great look.

Classic Kate. Simple, chic and form-fitting.

2010 Oscars – Kate Winslet In YSL

English Rose Award
Kate Winlset was the Best Dressed Brit at the 2010 Oscars last night.

I love the silhouette of her Atelier Yves Saint Laurent by Stefano Pilati bustier gown, it made her look so very elegant and regal.

She was one of the few I got an old Hollywood vibe from, with the gown and side sweeping hair.

Her look was paired with Tiffany jewels, a YSL satin clutch an silver YSL sandals which complemented her metallic lurex gown.

If I could change one thing, I would’ve removed the necklace.

2010 BAFTAs – Kate Winslet In Stella McCartney

Kate Winslet showed that practicing pilates is clearly paying off for her, as she walked the red carpet at the 2010 BAFTAs tonight looking super toned.

She looked amazing wearing a black Stella McCartney dress with lace inserts.

As she dashed up the red carpet we were told she wore Stella McCartney heels, whilst wearing Tiffany jewels and a Roger Vivier clutch.

I’m glad she did us Brits proud by looking stunning at this event.

Yes she wearing my least favourite colour black, but this look was far from boring.

2010 Golden Globe Awards – Press Room

Now this is more like it.

I adore Nicole Kidman’s ivory Nina Ricci Spring 2010 bias dress with delicately placed bows.

This look is so refreshing from all the fitted dresses she’s been wearing recently.

I love the colour, her side swept bun and she appears to be make-up malfunction free.

The pictures of Mo’Nique on the red carpet weren’t very flattering as she was holding the gown by her knees to keep the hem dry, but in the press room we got at better look at her.

The ‘Best Supporting Actress’ Golden Globe winner looked sensational wearing strapless gold Reem Acra custom-made gown.

I like that she kept the neck bare as a large necklace may have over shadowed her beautiful yet simple gown.

Surprisingly I don’t hate Jennifer Aniston in this black Valentino Pre-Fall 2010 gown.

Maybe it’s because of the sexy thigh-high split, or the confidence oozing out of her, or that sultry (for her) make-up or maybe it’s the sleep deprivation kicking.

Whilst I like the dress, heels and make-up, I’m still begging for a hairstyle change.  Just a pony or updo will suffice.

Julianna Margulies was also a winner on the night, collecting the award for ‘Best Actress in a Drama’ for her role in “The Good Wife”.

She opted for an interesting Narciso Rodriguez black gown with a blood red shimmering asymmetrical bodice.

It been a long time since I was excited about Kate Winslet on the red carpet.

That midnight blue YSL gown is a great colour for her and the cut flatters her figure so beautifully.

The gown is accented with a pearl and crystal embroidery detail.

Great Kate is back.

Halle Berry wore a Kaufman Franco black silk bias cut gown with lace inserts.

She looked gorgeous but it’s the same plunging neckline and silhouette we’ve seen a million times before.

So whilst I like it, I’m also incredibly bored by it.

2009 Bambi Awards

Looking at other website you’d be forgiven if you believed that only Shakira and Kate Winslet walked the red carpet at the Bambi Awards last night

Thomas Kretschmann and Shermine Sharivar were a very glamorous couple.

He wore a black suit with his shirt unbuttoned, whilst Shermine glowed beside him wearing an Armani Prive Fall 2009 deep plunging gown with an asymmetrical peplum on the waist.

The bodice stands out for more than the plunge, as it was embellished with stunning crystals.

I’m not sure about the nude clutch, but her hair and make-up suit the Old Hollywood look she was going for.

Bettina Zimmermann was another stunner on this red carpet.

Glowing with gorgeousity the actress wore a wore nude off-the-shoulder Versace Fall 2009 gown which is entirely beaded and modified from the runway.

Her look is paired with Versace heels from the same collection, and gold clutch.

I love how this gown shimmers.

Julia Stegner I ask you…why the ankle boots?

The model’s strapless midnight blue Versace Atelier Fall 2008 bustier gown with flower origami detail on the hip is outstandingly beautiful.

But when I see her pair it with ankle boots I just want to roll my eyes and say “next”.

Loving this from the ankles up.

I feel a unofficial brand ambassador post coming on.

Shakira wears Versace for her 4th red carpet appearance in a row, whilst her silver platform Versace Spring 2010 heels only get their 3rd appearance.

The singer wore a chain mail Versace Spring 2010 mini dress with an optical turquoise and charcoal grey print that made her stand out on this red carpet of luscious gowns.

Shakira later collected the ‘Best International Pop Star Award’ wearing a Gucci Fall 2009 mini dress with feathered details on the shoulders we have seen twice before on the red carpet.

She paired her dress with milky tights and black knee-high boots.

Jessica Schwarz opted for a black and white Chanel Fall 2009 ensemble consisting of a white sleeveless ruffed shirt, and a black draped floor-length skirt.

I’m sure she could’ve pulled off those arm-warmers.

Annette Weber wears the same blue ombre Valentino Fall 2009 gown we saw on Evangeline Lilly during Cannes Film Festival.

German model Franziska Knuppe was one of my favourites on this red carpet.

Her blue gown has a princess feel to it, plus I love the floral embroidered details that cascade down her bodice and the blue ribbon tied to her waist.

Kate Winslet won the ‘Best Actress Award’ at this event, but she wins most boring on this red carpet for me.

Her shapeless black dress doens’t excite me like the others do.  The only interesting part is the embellished shoulders and lace detail on the back.

Alexandra Maria Lara looked beautiful wearing a draped nude Alberta Ferretti halter gown.

What I’m missing from this look is a bit of bling, or a stand-out clutch.

Now this is what you call a mermaid hem.

Mareile Hoeppner must have Kate Beckinsale going green with envy.

There are a lot of great candidates for BDOTW, so let me know who’s your favourite.

Who Wore Zac Posen Better? Kate Winslet or Mariah Carey

Kate Winslet would easily be in my Top 10 of Best Dressed Women on the red carpet.

The British actress walked the red carpet at the 2009 BAFTA Awards were she was later awarded Best Leading Actress.

She looked stunning wearing a black halter neck Zac Posen Resort 2008 mermaid gown which emphasized her enviable curves.

She kept her look simple but no less glamorous with a soft up ‘do and long diamond earrings.

Mariah Carey shocked me by looking equally glamourous wearing the same dress when she walked the red carpet at the “Precious” LA Screening.

Mariah was definitely on fire as she went for a classic Hollywood look, opposed to wearing a dress that was 2 sizes too small for her.

For her MASSIVE improvement and because I don’t think I ever be able to vote for her again in this type of poll, I will give the win to Mariah.

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better? Kate Winslet, Natalia Vodianova or Drew Barrymore

Kate Winslet was the first celebrity to wear this Stella McCartney Fall 2009 lace and stretch-wool dress, when she walked the red carpet at the “Away We Go” special screening in New York.

The actress had her hair tightly pulled back, as she paired her ruffled neckline dress with black and white detailed Christian Louboutin slingbacks.

Natalia Vodianova wore the same dress with thigh-high boots, when she attended the “Topshop Unique Private Dinner party” at the Ivy in London during Fashion Week.

Whilst Drew Barrymore wore the dress this week to the “Whip It” LA Derby press event, with Alaia heels.

Models always have an unfair advantage as their job is to look beautiful 24/7, so I feel it’s a bit of a cop-out giving the win to Natalia, but she really is my favourite in this dress so she wins for me.

This dress is available to purchse from the Net-A-Porter International site for £1,065/€1,282.
