Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Slowly but surely Katharine’s McPhee’s blonde ‘do is growing on me.

Last week on “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” the former American Idol contestant perform her new single “Had it All”.

She looked gorgeous commanding the stage wearing a very chic Marchesa Fall 2009 black ensemble.

The look consisted of a plunging sculptured black jacket with a cut-out star shoulder detail, paired with narrow tuxedo pants.

I love her added detail of that stunning jeweled belt.

It really adds a lot of pizazz to her look, making me love her look over the runway.

Black boots and a two-tone diamond bracelet complete the look.

This has to be one of my favourite looks from Katharine.

“A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson’s” Benefit, New York

Whilst trying to keep up with Fashion Week, LeeAnn sent me a note to tell me to make sure I looked at the Dries van Noten Spring 2010 collection.

I’m glad she did because I instantly fell in love with the ethnic prints and the one-sleeved blazers.

I often wondered who would be the first to wear this collection, and that honour went to Julianne Moore.

She looked fabulous in this hard to pull off ensemble.

Her ethnic print wrap dress was paired with a black blazer trimmed with a white strip to complete this unusually chic look.

Granted it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I love it.

Wow.

Katharine McPhee blows me away wearing a Marchesa Fall 2009 one shoulder sculpted dress.

I’m even loving the hair with this look.

Either I’m coming down with something or Katharine just hit her first home run.

BDOTW contender.

Alexa Chung opted for a cheap yet chic Topshop studded one-shoulder dress paired with booties.

She arrived wearing a questionable leopard print coat.

‘Late Show With David Letterman’, New York

My first reaction was that I didn’t like Ashley Greene in this Bottega Veneta Resort 2010 striped suit, but after so many great red carpet dresses this look feels refreshing.

It also shows that both Ashley and her stylist are thinking outside the box, and not playing it safe.

My main problem is actually the striped shirt, because the suit is not so bad.

I think I would’ve loved this look if the shirt was a solid colour, or if Ashley had worn the same suit Penelope Cruz wore back in July.

London Evening Standard Theatre Awards, London

Anna Friel loves Antonio Berardi as she has worn his pieces many times before.

Not so many times that she needs an intervention like Leona Lewis does from Vivienne Westwood, but enough to know she appreciates his stunning designs.

The textured dress had an asymmetrical chiffon detail that moved beautifully on the runway.

Black pumps complete the look.

Christmas Illuminations Launch On The Champs-Elysees, Paris

Just last week I was complaining that we haven’t seen enough of Balenciaga’s Fall 2009 collection on the red carpet, and here we have Charlotte Gainsbourg upping the count to make 3 following Carine Roitfeld and Salma Hayek.

The actress arrived at this event wearing one of the printed plunging blouses paired with the lace bandeau, leather pants and peep-toe heels.

Aching cool as always.

“Brothers” New York Screening

For some reason I just can’t fall in love with Natalie Portman wearing this cute Jason Wu Spring 2010 strapless mini dress.

The dress has all the ingredients to make Natalie shine: the ruffles, the colour, the length and the contrasting waist belt, but it gets no love from me and I can’t figure out why.

The actress paired her dress with Aldo purple heels.

Emma Roberts opted for a Miu Miu Resort 2010 summery dress brought down with thick tights.

Navyboot Store Opening, Germany

Monica Cruz hasn’t yet met a Herve Leger bandaged dress she didn’t like.

This is 3 in a row.

Before Cheryl Cole, Cat Deeley was the nations sweetheart.

The TV presenter arrived at this event wearing Givenchy Holly strappy leather heels with a Preen Matt Lightening dress.

If you are thinking the dress looks a bit awkward, that’s because the thick strap on Cat’s right shoulder – as we are looking at it – should be on her left shoulder.

Regardless she still looks fabulous.

Regular readers will know that I’m all about the drama.

The more dramatic the dress, the more I fall in love which is why I’m salivating over Rihanna’s Stéphane Rolland Spring 2009 Couture gown.

I expected Rihanna to walk red carpet wearing a Balmain Spring 2010 dress with cut-out details in the hips, so this was a very pleasant surprise.

The white Stéphane Rolland mermaid shaped gown had a pleated detail on the front which swirled around the bodice, before exploding all over the skirt.

This will be a love it or hate it dress. What say you?

Before I fell for Cate Blanchett, it was all about Catherine Zeta Jones. She was my first girl crush.

I had such admiration for her as she held her own on the red carpet amongst the Hollywood major players.

We haven’t seen much of her lately, but walking the red carpet at this event last night she proved that she hasn’t lost any of her sparkle.

CJZ looked outstanding wearing a navy blue Gustavo Cadile’s Resort 2010 lurex gown.

I loved cut, it flatters her so well. I also love how the gown shimmers.

Welcome back Mrs Jones-Douglas, we missed you.

From one ageless beauty to another.

Iman – as usual – looked OUT-Friggin-Standing.

It’s not easy to follow the gorgeous Karlie Kloss because she totally owns everything she wears on the runway.

But when you’re Iman, that doesn’t matter.

The uber model walked the red carpet wearing a pink Jason Wu Spring 2010 feathered confection that is totally delightful.

I love the neon green waistband and her matchy matchy runway platform heels.

She totally stands out as one of the best on this red carpet.

Never take a day of Iman….I BEG you.

Some of you have expressed your confusion as to why Kerry Washington receives so much praise for her red carpet choices.

Come on guys, looks at how amazing she looks wearing this Fendi Spring 2010 blush pink lace floor-length dress.

She looks simply elegant, the colour complements her skin-tone, she accessorized well with silver stunning jewels and a Christian Louboutin snake skin print clutch.

Her look is totally effortless.

What’s not to love?

The Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection still proves to be the most worn collection by celebrities this year.

Liya Kebede, joins Stella McCartney and Jessica Simpson who have both worn this coat/dress.

It’s not just celebrities who have fallen for Stella’s Resort collection.

Glamour magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive walked the red carpet with SVP & Publishing Director Bill Wackermann wearing the same Resort 2010 dress we’ve seen on Frieda Pinto.

It was no surprise that Stella McCartney was honoured at this event.

The designer was of course wearing self designed pieces which all worked well together.

Stella tends to wear a lot of black, so this pop of colour is really refreshing.

Serena Williams is getting the hand of this red carpet thing as she is radiant at this event wearing a red asymmetrical Pamella Roland gown.

I think she has looked her best yet after her stunning Gucci look a few weeks ago.

Yes she looks muscular, but there’s nothing she can do about that.

I would love to say I have finally embraced Katharine McPhee’s platinum blonde ‘do, but I continue to struggle with it.

Hair aside, I totally in love with her BODYAMR peacock blue jersey gown.

The gown shows off her figure, whilst the black patent leather trim and open back shows off Katharine’s sexy side.

The singer/actress accessorized with a black leather Perrin Paris 1893 Riva Pochette oversize clutch.

Maria Shriver looked fab wearing a black lace strapless Monique Lhuillier gown.

Amy Poehler glittered in a gold Stella McCartney cocktail dress.

I was in the same room as both Georgina Chapman and Blake Lively and didn’t notice they were wearing the same Marchesa Spring 2009 lace shorts. It’s like Pink and Shakira all over again.

The reason I didn’t notice is because I was in a room full of breath-taking gowns.

Neither seemed to mind as they had both worn the shorts in different ways.

Georgina paired her shorts with a plain tank top, whilst Blake wore the runway embellished jacket.

It’s also quite cute that they are wearing the same Christian Louboutin’s ankle booties too.

Alexa Chung’s Heidi braids were quite appropriate to complete the gypsy feel to her look.

She wore a black Marchesa Spring 2008 dress with stunning gold embroidered with a tan Mulberry Alexa Bag and black ankle boots.

Becki Newton wore an embroidered jewel neck short sleeve Marchesa dress with beige Christian Louboutin platform heels.

The dress really sparkled under the museums lights.

Can anyone confirm this Katherine McPhee’s new hairstyle is for a movie. Because I’m struggling to believe this was by choice.

The singer gives Drew Barrymore a run for her money in the race for ‘worst hair of the week’ award whilst wearing a stunning ivory Marchesa Resort 2010 one shoulder pleated crepe dress with embroidered waist.

Gold shoes would have complemented the gold embroidery detail on her dress better in my opinion.

Emmy Rossum shows us how low the plunge on the back of her feather detailed pink duchess satin sheath Marchesa dress goes.

Gold accessories complete her look.

Evan Rachel Wood was looking fierce on the red carpet, wearing a sexy black and silver Gucci Fall 2009 dress, with black feathered detail on the shoulders, a large waist belt, and black Brian Atwood “Maniac” platforms.

I love how this girl switches things up for different events. She’s never predictable. When you expect black she will give you a cream gown like at the Oscars.

Her look was complete with the red carpet favourite, the Jimmy Choo Kase Oval Clutch.

I’m really enjoying Katharine McPhee’s recent run on the red carpet. She always looks so elegant and beautiful. This event was no exception.

She arrived wearing a poppy red Reem Acra Resort 2009 silk satin strapless cocktail dress, with bow detail on the bodice.

Her look was complete with a pair of  Tory Burch’s Francesca Sexy gladiator sandals.

This is the second time in a row that LaLa Vazquez has worn Alexander Wang on the red carpet.

This time she wears an Alexander Wang denim and velvet corset top, with a stripey blazer, and black pants.

I like the blazer and the Wang top, but not together. I also think her pants would have been better had they been more fitted. At present they look ill-fitting, especially around the ankles.

Rumer Willis showed off her long legs, wearing a mini black dress with a ruffle skirt. The dress had an interesting print, and her grey clutch complements the dress well.

I like this look for Rumer, but I’m still rooting for her to dye her hair back to black.

Cutie Jamie Chung, arrived wearing a strapless Mara Hoffman dress, with an interesting print. Her look was completed a gorgeous studded clutch, and a Giuseppe Zanotti cut-out booties.

AnnaLynne McCord’s hair was curly and wild the last time she walked the red carpet. This time she opts for sleek marcel waves, with her black strapless mini Alice + Olivia Madison dress.

The pop of red on the lips adds a very small touch of colour, to her all black look.

Bar Refaeli always looks so beautiful.

On this occasion she glows in a one shoulder Notte by Marchesa hot pink mini dress, with large flower detail on the bodice.

Not sure about those purple peep-toes though.

Eva Marcille wore an ivory halter neck Eva Culture gown, with layer upon layer of ruffles.

It’s simple, and yet totally gorgeous.
