08.01.09 Worst Dressed

2009 People’s Choice Awards – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
I would wear this dress to work or to an interview, in fact I think I have a dress just like this. So I’m surprised Jennie Garth, with access to a lot of dresses, would pick this one.

OK she does not have the keys to Carolina Herrera’s closet like Renee Zellweger, but she can do better than this, even with her D list status.

Most Disappointing Award
Debra Messing is one of my faves, so imagine my deep disappointment to see her take to the red carpet last night in this extremely unflattering Donna Karan dress.

The steel grey colour is not so bad, but the fit is, and so is that thing on the front of her dress.

Why Debra? Why?

Most Unlikely To Add This Dress My Wish List Award
This has to be the most boring dress I have ever seen Reese Witherspoon wear.

So dull, so lifeless, so unlike Reese. I hope she’s saving better dresses for bigger occasions.

Most Uninspiring Award
Apart from the leopard print lining of her Dolce & Gabbana suit, I have no interest in what Katherine Heigl is wearing – although I do like the shoes.

For someone of her caliber, I would have expected more. Anne Hathaway looked so great in her suit this week, that this feels a bit copy-cat.

No Wow Factor Award
The colour was great, but I felt no wow factor from Chandra Wilson.

Worst Gown Award
There were a few gowns at this awards show last night, but Lisa Edelstein takes the prize for having the worst one.

Again it fails to flatter, and again I expected more.

25.02.08 Best Dressed

Oscars 2008 – Best Dressed


Best Dressed/Best Haute Couture Award
This ivory mermaid-like Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2008 Couture gown on Marion Cotillard was simply stunning.

I loved the a fishtail hem and the scale-esqe embroidery on the whole gown.

Marion won the Best Actress Award for her portrayal of Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose.

Her speech was so wonderfully heart-warming, that it brought a small tear to my eye.


Best Red Award
Heidi Klum was better than amazing in this Dior by John Galliano custom-made couture gown.

The neckline and the back detail were all very chic.

She finished her look with Stuart Weitzman shoes and jewelry she designed from her own line.

Heidi’s red couture gown will be auctioned as part of The Heart Truth campaign to raise awareness about women and heart disease.


Best Detailed Dress/Best Earrings Award
There is so much detail on Penelope Cruz’ mermaid dress with the feathers and the gathering at the front, yet it does not make the dress too busy.

I adore her ruby and diamond Chopard earrings.


Best Invisible Make-up Award
I bet it only took Cameron Diaz no more than 20 minutes to get ready, and look how amazing she is.

She arrived at the Oscars in a pink Christian Dior by John Galliano bustier gown, Bulgari jewels, Roger Vivier clutch.

Best Strapless Award
I loved Kristin Chenoweth Armani Privé black silk tulle gown over a rose organza underlay.

It was the only dress that challenged Marion for Best Dressed. I loved the sweetheart neckline and the knotted and pleated tulle details.

Best Sequins Award
Regular readers will know I love a bit of bling, as it all adds to the glamour on the red carpet.

Renee Zellweger was the only one to provided head to toe bling in the form of this stunning strapless Carolina Herrera gown, which I at first thought had to be Elie Saab.

Most Improved From The 2007 Oscars Award
Anne Hathaway need this. She needed a stunning gown to erase the memory of that Valentino bow.

The saviours? Marchesa of course.

She completed her look with Harry Winston diamonds.

I love the with rosette detailing from the bust-line to her shoulder.

Best Strapless Award
Keri Russell’s champagne coloured Nina Ricci strapless dress came to life with an H.Stern vintage floral necklace.

Best Matching Dress/Lipstick Combo Award
Katherine Heigl was stunning in this Escada gown.

I loved the circular detail on her shoulder and nipped in waist.

Her look was very elegant, as she channeled old Hollywood.

Her jewels were from Ryan Ryan and her shoes and clutch were from Jimmy Choo.

Best Pregnant Award
Jessica Alba won the battle of the baby mama’s in this purple Marchesa Fall 2008 gown.

I love the feather detailing on the bust and the aubergine really suits her.

Jessica added some Cartier jewels to finish her look.

Best One-Shouldered Dress/Best Hair Award
There were many one-shoulder gown, but Hilary Swank in Versace Spring 2008 Couture was by far the best in terms of detail.

Her hair was amazing. Perfectly styled and I loved the tints.

Best Vintage Award
Calista Flockhart looked stunning in her 1970s vintage Valentino Haute Couture dress from Rare Vintage. The pale blue and grey colours were very pretty on her.

Best British Award
Were Tilda let us down Helen Mirren did us Brits proud in this custom-made Georges Chakra ruby gown.

Simple Yet Fabulous Award
Amy Ryan was simple and fabulous in this one-shoulder Calvin Klein gown.

Sexiest Couple Award
Johnny Depp in Giorgio Armani and Vanessa Paradis in Chanel Haute Couture with Chanel jewelry are so hot without event trying. Only Brad and Angelina could have upstage this hot couple.

Best Dressed Couple Award
I loved the way Diane Lane in David Meister and Josh Brolin were subtly dressed. They complimented each other well, without resorting to him wearing a tie to match her dress.

Best Necklace Award
Laura Linney was wearing a very simple midnight blue silk strapless bustle-back gown by Michael Kors.

Her stunning Cathy Waterman necklace brings the dress to life.

Laura’s bag and shoes were by Salvatore Feragamo.

Keisha Whitaker always shines next to her husband.

The detail on this embellished strapless tulle gown is magnificent.
