Red Carpet Fashion Awards

“The Element of Freedom” Album Launch Party, London

Alicia Keys was recently in London to promote her new album “The Element of Freedom”.

The superstar singer was wearing a white and blue vibrant paint print Alexander McQueen v neckline dress with batwing sleeves which she belted.

Her look was paired with blue tights, and Giuseppe Zanotti electric blue ankle boots.

I would never belt a dress with batwing sleeves as they are hard enough to manoeuvre in, but it seems to work here for Alicia.

“A Little Night Music” Broadway Opening Night, New York

In an age when we see so many ankle boots on the red carpet, it’s nice to get warm and fuzzy feeling from Catherine Zeta Jones on the red carpet.

She gives us old fashion glamour which made me fall in love with stars on the red carpet in the first place.

On her opening night on Broadway, the Welsh beauty looked so very elegant wearing a Gustavo Cadile black gown, with tiered skirt trimmed with sequins and a rosette detail on the hip.

The gown appears to be slightly modified from the baby blue Resort 2010 gown presented on the runway.

Z100s Jingle Ball 2009, New York

I hate to say this, but I’m really tiring of Leighton Meester’s ‘edgy’ look.

It was cute at first, but now it feels so forced.

The actress and wannabee singer opted for this cold-shoulder Louise Goldin leather and mesh sleeved dress paired with Proenza Schouler patent leather pumps.

To say me no likey is putting it very mildly.

House of Harlow 1960 Holiday Collection Launch, LA

The woman best known for her boho chic style gives something new.

Firstly she looks stunning with a chestnut new hair colour, then she shows off her post-baby figure wearing a L’Wren Scott fitted ivory dress which has been worn by Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jennifer Lopez and Nicole Kidman (of course).

LOVE the fact she didn’t wear black pumps, instead she opted for Christian Louboutin snake-skin heels.

Louis Vuitton and Teen Vogue Holiday celebration, LA

Alexa Chung’s MTV show might have been cancelled, but that didn’t stop the Brit putting on a stiff upper lip and partying with the kids at the Teen Vogue Holiday party.

She carried a SC bag from the Sofia Copolla’s Louis Vuitton collection, whilst wearing a Louis Vuitton Resort 2010 print skirt.

I adore this print which has been worn by January Jones and Rachel Weisz on the January 2010 Vogue UK cover.

Emma Roberts opted for a sheer nude top, black pants and black LV Can can heels.

Samual French Bookstore, LA

After a rare occasion in which Dita von Teese had a bad day on the red carpet, the Burlesque star is back to her best.

This weekend she redeemed herself wearing a navy Lanvin Fall 2009 coat/dress worn with a belt, boots and an exquisite fascinator hat.

Tres chic.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Even in a simple black Jasmine di Milo black cashmere coat Kate Hudson is still uber sexy.

Showing off her pins the “Nine” actress is wearing the Brian Atwood Wagner rivet suede pumps which are on my wish list.

Seminole Hard Rock Hotel And Casino, LA

Kim Kardashian accessorized her ALC double zipper draped dress, with a stunning neck piece, and Pierre Hardy Saba sandals.

Book Signing For “Dita: Stripteese” at Books and Books, Miami

Normally you can’t stop me gushing about how wonderful Dita von Teese looks, but on this occasion me no likey.

I would have preferred the runway black version of Dita’s Jean-Charles de Castelbajac leopard head maxi dress, to the red one she’s wearing.

Four Seasons George V Hotel, Paris

Victoria Beckham was spotted leaving her Paris hotel last night wearing the 5th piece from her 20 piece Spring 2010 collection.

As much as I want to complain about her 3rd black look in a row I love her Victoria Beckham peplum dress – as previously worn by Blake Lively.

Tres chic. Magnifique from the council estate face lift, to her dove grey Trib Two’s.

Four Seasons George V Hotel, Paris

Earlier today the busy fashion designer was again spotted leaving her hotel.  This time she wore a winter white belted Maison Martin Margiela Fall 2009 wool coat with split sleeves.

It appears that all she’s wearing.

With her burgundy Christian Louboutin heels, white coat and Hermes Himalayan Crocodile Birkin she no doubt turned heads.

She on her way back folks *squeals with excitement*

13th Annual Cracked Xmas, LA

Kim Kardashian looked stunning wearing an asymmetrical Tadashi Shoji Spring 2010 dress.

The midnight blue crinkled one shoulder dress with illusion beaded lace insets flattered her beautiful curvy figure.

She paired her dress with Pierre Hardy Saba sandals.

I wasn’t too crazy about those two shades of blonde extensions she placed in her hair though.

The UNICEF Ball, LA

Some of you may think I always pick on Selena Gomez when I say she dresses too mature for her age.

Its only because when I know she can looks totally outstanding like she does here in her hot pink strapless Notte by Marchesa gown.

The eye-popping colour works perfectly well with her dark hair and her milky skin tone.

Sergio Rossi grey peep-toes and a glittering clutch complete the look.

Friends Without Borders First Annual Los Angeles Gala

Anne Hathaway evokes simple elegance wearing a one-sleeved Dior button-down dress with Christian Louboutin heels.

Loving the hair and neutral make-up.

“The Young Victoria” New York Screening

There is something quite garish about Emily Blunt’s red and black Carolina Herrera dress that leaves me cold.

She’s had much better moments.

33rd Annual Cairo International Film Festival (CIFF), Egypt

It’s been a while since we last saw Salma Hayek looking this fantastic.

The actress looked stunning at this event were she received an honorary award wearing a printed Balenciaga Fall 2009 gown.

I had hoped to see more from this collection on the red carpet, but Salma delights in her stunning gown version, which I prefer to the runway.

Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ Inaugural Governors Awards, LA

Ever since Cannes Film Festival Abbie Cornish just gets better and better for me on the red carpet.

I adore her in this Christian Dior lilac belted gown.

Her hair and make-up are gorgeous, her Neil Lane jewels are subtly beautiful and that clutch is divine.

Holt Renfrew Celebrates New Calgary Store, Canada

After two gowns Kristen Bell gives us a fresh sparkling Jenni Kayne Spring 2010 mini to get us in the to party mood for this weekend.

As always the blonde actress is flawless.

“The Blind Side” New Orleans Benefit Premiere

Sandra Bullock looked stunning wearing a purple striped Alberta Ferretti Spring 2010 gown.

I just wish she had smiled to help me love this look even more.

Fabolous’ Birthday Party, New York

Amber Rose usually over does it by wearing loud colours, or tacky tight ensembles but I’m totally in love with this Martin Grant Fall 2009 sculptured bustier.

Black velvet pants, YSL suede black heels and sunglasses complete her look.

2010 Pirelli Calendar Cocktail Reception, London

Daisy Lowe opted for a Jasmine di Milo Fall 2008 jumpsuit which is split to the thigh.

I love this look as it’s seductive without being too revealing.

The tights even work in her favour, as she looks like she’s wearing a full bodysuit.

NAC’s Medal of Honor for Film Award Presentation, New York

I’m not feeling this Alexander McQueen Resort 2010 look on Christina Ricci at all, and it has nothing to do with the tights.

The asymmetrical one-sleeved mini has a mish mash of colours I really don’t like, plus I don’t think the dress is particularly flattering on her.

Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Birthday Celebration, New York

I’ve loved this Alexander Wang corseted one-shoulder dress ever since I laid eyes on it.

Kim Kardashian does look good in this dress.

I love way the dress gracefully drapes her shoulder, but she’s a little bit too busty for the dress.

2009 MTVU Woodie Awards, New York

I’m also surprised we haven’t seem much of the Balenciaga Resort 2010 collection on the red carpet.

Jessica Stam opted to wear this orange belted mini with tight and a small patterned bag.

“The Princess And The Frog”, LA Premiere

It’s been forever since we last saw Anika Noni Rose on the red carpet, then she reappears at this premiere wearing the Thread Social asymmetrical dress I had added to my ‘favourites’ a few weeks ago.

I love the back of the dress with the unexpected double strappy detail.

Such a cute look to match that gorgeous smile.

“Me And Orson Welles” UK Premiere

Claire Danes’ Stella McCartney gown is very classic and simple with ruffle details.

Large silver earrings provides the sparkle.

January Jones would have stood out at this event wearing a two-tone Gucci Resort 2010 bandeau dress, paired with statement necklace, black heels and her blonde locks piled high.

Her asymmetrical heels are an interesting choice, but I would have loved something less heavy to go with her summery dress.

Zoe Saldana continues to impress wearing a two tone lingerie-inspired Antonio Berardi Spring 2010 bustier dress which screams ‘sexy’.

I’m loving the gold heels Jamie King wore with her Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 dress.

The dress gathers from neckline down the front of her dress and has an interesting jagged hemline.

It’s been a while since we saw Emma Stone on the red carpet.

The actress walked the red carpet wearing a back tulle Christian Cota Fall 2009 draped dress with Guiseppe Zanotti ankle boots.

I wish I could have found a better picture of her stand up straight.

I am in lust with Olivia Wilde’s white Marchesa Bridal dress.

The colour, the structure, the folds and the embroidered detail on the bodice excite my senses.

Unfortunately I’m don’t feel the same way about her hairstyle.  An updo would’ve worked wonders.

Her look is paired with Brian Atwood Marlo heels.

There was a time when Kim Kardashian would’ve been guaranteed to walk this event wearing a bandage dress, but these days she covers up but still manages to look sexy.

This plum colour is gorgeous on her.

Jessica Stroup always keeps her look young and fresh.

She wore a pair of gold metallic lace boy shorts and black tailored jacket from the ‘Amber Valletta for Monrow’ capsule collection.

Jimmy Choo Detroit suede ankle boots complete her look.

It looks like shorts were the hot trend of the night as Amanda Seyfried also donned a black pair, teaming them with a crocheted fringed top.

A Judith Leiber clutch and Brian Atwood Maniac black heels complete this cute look.

Rose McGowan goes without her signature red pout on this occasion for a fresher neutral look.

Her blue Miu Miu bustier dress has also been worn by Kristen Dunst.

Elizabeth Banks and Gabrielle Union both wore black BCBG Max Azria dresses.

Elizabeth paired her mini dress with pattern tights, whilst Gabrielle’s asymmetrical hemmed dress was paired with peep-toes and a two-tone clutch.

This Brian Lichtenberg Fall 2009 shoulder padded dress complete with hood, proves itself to be a perfect party-piece.

Contesting for the WWIB crown here we have three strong contenders.

Ciara arrived at her album launch party at the “M2 Ultra Lounge” in New York City with pulled back hair to show off her amazing bone structure and heighten the impact of those exaggerated shoulders.

Kim Kardashian choosing the sparkly number when she hit the red carpet at TAO in Las Vegas to celebrate her 29th birthday party with her sister.

She copied her BFF Ciara, by adding volume to her hair and pulling it back into a sleek ponytail.

America’s Next Top Model winner Eva Pigford…or Eva ‘Marcille’…gave a Grace-Jones style slant to the look by wearing the hood to a Halloween party.

Both Eva and Kim opted for a seasonal shoe-boot to give a punky edge to their glamour.

Although I’m not too sure about the crazy make-up, Eva wins this WWIB for me. She looks full of fun and confidence and the boots are a stylish touch.

Demi Lovato also wears this same dress at several points in her video for her new single “Remember December”.
