Red Carpet Fashion 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.

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.

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.

Kate Winslet is very much a girls girl. I don’t think I have ever hear a bad word said against her. Everyone loves her, and what’s not to love. She is beautiful, down-to-earth and refreshing honest.

These traits make her the perfect cover girl for Harper’s Bazaar’s August 2009 issue.

On the newsstand cover – which I prefer to the subscriber cover below – she looks gorgeous wearing a Michael Kors white crepe one-shouldered dress. Inside the issue she talks about her reputation, drugs, her breasts and nudity. Here are some extracts:

On her breasts: “If people are noticing my boobs in a movie and saying they do what real boobs do, then that’s great. I’ll be 34 in October. I can’t keep getting away with it… people have seen enough of my bum and my boobs. I have to put them back.”

Kate Winslet walked red carpet at this screening, in support of her husband Sam Mendes, for his latest movie “Away We Go”.

The Brit Oscar winner opted to wear a gorgeous black Stella McCartney Fall 2009 dress, with vintage lace sheer sleeves, and a ruffled detail around the neckline.

She is the picture of sophistication, as the dress delightfully skims her curves, but the “Croydon facelift” ruins this look for me. Her hair is slicked back too tight for my liking.

Even as I marvel at her fresh-faced glow, I wish she had opted for a simple classy updo.

The look was complete with Louboutins peep-toes, with a white platforms.

“Two and a Half Men”, is one of my favourite TV shows, and I love the character Rose, played by Melanie Lynskey.

I really love her colourful Rachel Roy Pre-Fall 2009 asymmetrical top, with a peplum at the waist.

Unfortunately the grey suede ankle strap heels, kill this look for me.
