Grammy Awards “Salute To Icons Honoring Doug Morris” Clive Davis Event – Keri Hilson

I’m not quite sure when things started to go drastically wrong for Keri Hilson, but she continues to slide on the red carpet.

At the “Salute To Icons Honoring Doug Morris” in LA last night the golden girl wasn’t shining so brightly.

It appears the singer bathe in gold from the shimmering powder caked all over her body.

I wasn’t particularly keen on her gold chainmail dress with the asymmetrical neckline and hemline, nor was I keen on her black strapless bra which is visible under her dress.

Hopefully girlfriend can do a 180 before the main event tonight.

KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball 2009

After a few questionable choices, Leighton Meester tones things down a tad wearing this Cushnie Et Ochs marble print dress.

I like the dress which doesn’t scream “I’m not Blair Waldorf”, but not too keen on the make-up.

I’m still expecting more from Keri Hilson.

It was pointed out that the main problem with her look was her hair, which appears to be sorted out.

For a casual event this ensemble including an Alexander Wang jacket is fine, but I’m would like to see more from her next time out.

Katie Cassidy stood out wearing honeycomb gold and black mini dress.

Tights, black peep-toes and a black clutch completed the look.

Her make-up is flawless here.

Grammy Nominations Concert Live!

Jennifer Nettles looked stunning as usual wearing a Yigal Azrouël Resort 2010 red one-sleeved silk shantung dress, which I think would’ve looked even better if it was sleeveless.

A contrasting belt and clutch, plus fuschia pink Christian Louboutin Very Galaxy peep-toes complete the look.

Keri Hilson continues her slide.

This houndstooth and striped Stella McCartney knit dress with lace panels shouldn’t have been considered as a red carpet dress.

She used to be so fierce on the red carpet.

Maybe she should do what Rihanna did and come to London and discover some new designers, because she’s clearly run out of ideas.

Fergie looks gorgeous in this one shoulder dress covered in ombre sequins by The Blonds, which has the same spike details as the dress Rihanna wore recently.

I love the dress, but those spikes are just plain scary.

When I go out I have enough to worry about when it comes to scuffing my shoes, I don’t want to have to worry about poking my eyes out as well.

Katy Perry wore an embroidered Ema Savahl dress with a sassy hemline.

By keeping her accessories to a minimum she didn’t overload her look.

Lilac Casadei heels completed the look.

2009 American Music Awards

Best Dressed Award
It’s been a long while since I was wowed by Fergie, but the singer did just that at the AMAs last night.

The singer walked the red carpet wearing an Armani Privé Fall 2009 black gown with asymmetrical zipper detailing which leads to a dramatic front slit.

The gown sparkles with thousands of black triangular paillettes and is embellished with tiny Swarovski crystals.

Fergie’s gown is slightly modified from the runway as the neckline differs plus Fergie’s gown has straps.

Black Louboutin’s plus a bracelet, armlet and large ring complete this stunning look.

Best Mini Dress Award
Alicia Keys has been a longtime friend of Giorgio Armani, so it’s not a surprise to see the singer wearing one of his stunning designs.

Her modified Giorgio Armani Spring 2010 cobalt blue, jewel encrusted strapless dress had an origami pleated detail on the bust which is more dramatic than the runway version.

I’m loving the aqua marine shades of blue, and the cute Swarovski crystal embellished shorts she wore under her dress.

She picked a fun piece from this collection that truly embodied the spirit of the AMAs.

Most Dramatic Award
Whilst most below were picking out cute nude dresses, Rihanna opted for a dramatic black and white floral laser cut Marchesa Spring 2010 strapless gown.

I loved this gown and it needed a strong personality to pull it off, and Rihanna did in my opinion.

I will guess a lot of you will hate this look, but she gets a thumbs up from me even with those white shoes.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Hair Award
Shakira seems to be developing a healthy obsession with Versace, as this is her 3rd Versace red carpet look in a row.

This sexy Versace Spring 2010 ultra mini yellow dress with cut-out details was perfect for someone with tons of sex appeal like Shakira, but I couldn’t help but feel that they ran out of time to style her hair.

It felt a bit flat against her stunning dress which she paired with the Spring 2010 runway heels.

Looks Way Better On The Red Carpet Award
This Christian Cota Spring 2010 ivory dress could have gone oh so wrong on Kristen Bell had she worn it as it was presented on the runway.

She only pulled up the skirt a few inches and removed the chains, but it makes a world of difference.

Silver Christian Louboutin Archidisco T-strap sandals and a Judith Leiber clutch completed this cute look.

Inspired By Taylor Swift Award
Had Taylor Swift been at this event, this silver Talbot Runhof Spring 2010 mini dress is what we would’ve expected her to wear.

Selena Gomez is sparkling both via her dress and her winning smile wearing her dress with Rock & Republic’s “Romy” strappy sandals embellished with chain detail.

I’m really loving this look as Selena tends to dress way too mature and boring for her young age.

Toned Down Bling Award
Like Taylor, Carrie Underwood used to have an obsession with over embellished dresses.

On this occasion she looked beautiful wearing a metallic one-shouldered Theia dress paired with amazing gold strappy sandals.

Nude Award
From the nude make-up, to the nude dress and the nude Guiseppe Zanotti heels, Demi Lovato needed something to inject a bit of life into her look.

Luckily her Jenny Packham Spring 2010 dress has a jeweled detail on the neckline to stop this look from being so boring and totally washing her out.

Va Va Voom Award
No matter was Sofia Vergara wears she’s going to look sexy.

Even if she was wearing a bin liner.

Whilst most opted for Music Award standard mini dresses, Sofia wowed in a nude Emilio Pucci one-shoulder gown which no doubt would’ve had men going weak at the knees.

Kate Beckinsale Will Be Green With Envy Award
It seems that since Paula Abdul left ‘American Idol’ that she’s had a style transformation.

Gone are those tacky costumey dresses, and in comes this stunning strapless lace mermaid hem gown.

The gown was so grand she need 2 people to help her walk down the red carpet.

I can’t remember the last time she looked this amazing.

Out Of Place Award
I love the delicate lace details on Nicole Kidman’s Balenciaga one-shoulder gown.

The pink and grey colours are gorgeous on her, but she always looks so out of place at these music events.

Worst Dressed Award
As much as I should be loving Kelly Clarkson’s dress based on the amount of embellishments are covering her dress, it fails to flatter her.

Needs To Check Out Style.com Award
Can someone please introduce Leona Lewis to Style.com.

She needs to be made aware that there are other designers out there than just Vivienne Westwood.

Yes she makes great designs, but Leona is only picking pieces that look exactly the same and it’s getting incredibly boring now.

I’ll lose it if I have to refer to those clunky ankle boots and that corset belt, so I’m going to pass.

What’s Happening? Award
Keri Hilson used to be so interesting to watch on the red carpet, but her look has started to become boring and stale.

I hope she gets back to her best soon, because she can do better than a LBD.

2009 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

Red Carpet

Heidi Klum shows off her post-pregnancy figure wearing a black Roberto Cavalli tiered chiffon dress with asymmetrical strap with a paillette trim.

She completes her fabulous look wearing satin Christian Louboutin Maggie heels.

Fabulous.

What I love most about Fergie’s look is her silver embellished Christian Louboutin pigalles.

They are truly lust worthy as they sparkle as brightly as her necklace and bracelet.

The singer looked sexy wearing a red hot lace Dolce & Gabbana mini dress.

I’m still not understanding her hair colouring.

Carine Roitfeld wore her Dolce & Gabbana lace dress/cape/Christian Louboutin thigh high boots combination for the 2nd time in 2 weeks.

We didn’t like it the first time Carine.

Keri Hilson is normally immaculate on the red carpet.

On this rare occasion she looks hideous as her dress look very cheap.  She also looks one step away from a wardrobe malfunction.

For such a fun loving event Michelle Trachtenberg’s navy strapless dress feels a bit too conservative.

After Party

At the after party the models came out to play.

Alessandra Ambrosio looked adorable in her sassy Valentino Fall 2009 Couture bustier dress.

Chanel Iman flashed us her megawatt trademark smile whilst wearing the same Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 dress we’ve seen on Anne Hathaway.

Marisa Miller was of course in Herve Leger, and Selita Ebanks donned a tight metallic dress with Givenchy heels.

Fergie performed at this event, but she wasn’t too tired to enjoy the party.

The singer wore a beautiful Blumarine Fall 2009 multi-colour animal print mini dress, which she toughen up with Balmain Uma zipper ankle boots.

I love this look, even with those ankle boots.

Miranda Kerr makes me not hate leopard print.

The VS Angel shunned the expected mini dress, and opted for a sexy lingerie inspired Christian Dior Spring 2008 leopard print dress.

Sharon Stone will be so jealous.

Model Candice Swanepoel wore a very risqué dress from Cushnie et Ochs’ Spring 2010 collection.

I love the asymmetrical hem line and the nude heels she paired with her dress.

Oh Heidi, do you have to keep taunting us?

The fact that you can wear a PVC dress this skin-tight after giving birth 5 weeks ago is leaving us green with envy.

Gorgeous dress.

I’m guessing it won’t be long before we see Victoria Beckham in those white Trib Two’s as she has them in every other colour.

2009 Soul Train Awards

Keri Hilson looked stunning and statuesque wearing a Dolce & Gabbana satin ruched dress with a peek-a-boo lace panel.

I love her strappy black sandals.

She was one of the best dresses at this event.

Kelly Price opted for a super casual look of a black cold-shouldered top paired with jeans.

Tamia was by far my favourite at this event glowing in a coral asymmetrical belted dress, which she paired with nude heels an a gold clutch.

Deborah Cox opted for a silver studded look which really didn’t suit her.

I have one word for Keisha Knight Pulliam…WOW.

I will always see her as little Rudy Huxtable.

Melanie Fiona wore a cute silver dress with a lot of draping on the hips.

Her dress was paired with matching heels.

LeToya Luckett was predictable in Herve Leger.

Fantasia Barrino was another favourite wearing a simple black dress with gold Louis Vuitton Cancan heels.

Monica has seen far better days.

Her secretary meets rock chick look doesn’t work for me at all.

2009 MOBO Awards

Even though Alexandra Burke didn’t pick up any awards at the MOBOs last night, she was one of the Best Dressed of the night as she sparkled in an Emilio Pucci blue minidress.

Keri Hilson thankfully brings a bit of glamour to this dull awards do, sporting a cute red strapless D&G dress with a bell-shaped skirt.

Loving the sparkling heels.

Leather is one of the hottest trends of the Fall season, but working the look head-to-toe was Kelly Rowland’s downfall.

Biker chic gone very very bad paired with leopard print heels. eeek.

VV Brown seems to love her faux-fur hat as this is the second time she has worn it to an event this.

This time she paired the hat with a silk print batwings Mansih Arora dress, and black heels.

I remember a time when the MOBOs was a big deal. Judging by this red carpet its clear to see it isn’t anymore.

BCBG Max Azria Spring 2010


The BCBG Max Azria Spring 2010 was all about prints, bod-con and asymmetrical dresses.

We were presented with vivid colours, geometric colour blocking, draping, black chiffon overlays and embellishments.

There were a lot of pieces wrapped or draped with chiffon which added a sexy edge to the collection as this fabric covered most of the peek-a-boo cut-outs.

I’ll imagine the bod-con dresses will be very popular with young Hollywood, but there was something for everyone from the daytime dresses to the sexy mini dress to the evening gowns.

The collection was as expected was youthful, sexy and fabulous.

You will be surprised to know that you can ALREADY shop this collection.

BCBG have capitalised on the fact that when we see it on the runway, we want it now. Not 6 months down the line.

Go to BCBG Max Azria’s website to shop this collection.

I didn’t spot Amanda Bynes at the show, and I was deeply disappointed as I would’ve seriously asked her ‘what gives’ with the ‘Never Changing Hair and LBDs’.

Yes I would have seriously asked her, in a really polite way of course. Especially when she would have had a wealth of free dresses to pick from for this show, yet she still opted for ANOTHER LBD. *bangs head against Starbucks table*

I hope she’s at the Herve Leger show because I HAVE to speak to her. It’s my fashion week mission.

It’s rare that I find any woman taller than me, but Keri Hilson was.

Not only that but she is BEAU-TI-FUL. I never noticed until today.

Pictures do not do this girl justice because I was in awe.

The singer was wearing a BCBG ensemble paired with camel heels and an outstanding statement necklace.

I think I have a new girl crush.

I do like this chartreuse BCBG Max Azria Fall 2009 dress, but I preferred it on the runway to Lynn Collins.

Click here to see who else was at the show.

If you have been following me on Twitter, you would’ve seen my post on Anna Wintour who I saw as she made her way into the BCBG show whilst I queued.

The editor-in-chief of Vogue was of course wearing Prada.
