Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Sophie Ellis-Bextor charmed in her Elie Saab Fall 2009 black embellished dress by adding a true signature Lulu Guinness hot red lips clutch.

I love the racy red strappy heels.  Some would have stuck to safe black.

On any other week she may have been up for BDOTW.

What a way to show off your post-baby body.

Kimora Lee Simmons used to make some questionable choices on the red carpet, but since dating Djimon Hounsou she appears to have left her ghetto fabulousness behind, and is giving us pure Fabulosity – to borrow her term.

She looks stunning in a Jenny Packham shimmering gold plunging gown which show off her twins, or as Teresa Giudice from “The Housewives of New Jersey” would call them “boobies”.

I think it must be ‘Cheryl Cole Appreciation Day’ today, because firstly Beyonce Knowles wore a similar David Koma dress to the X Factor judge.

Now Kimora is wearing the same Jenny Packham Fall 2010 Bridal jeweled hair accessory which Cheryl wore on week 3 of the X Factor with her Atelier Versace white gown.

Who would have thought little Cheryl Cole was just a trend-setter.

This satin Dolce & Gabbana mermaid gown keeps popping up on the red carpet like the Dolce & Gabbana tulle gowns.

Eva Herzigova opted to wear her green version off-the-shoulder.

Unfortunately the gown sits too low for my liking.

Rihanna, Rosario Dawson and Caterina Murino have all worn this same gown.

Elizabeth Hurley is usually wears knee-length dresses or thigh-high split gowns, so this fruity tangerine above-the-knee dress is a refreshing change.

She pairs her dress with Jimmy Choo gold heels and a matching clutch.

When you think of a pregant woman at the 2009 Grammy’s you will remember M.I.A, but Kimora Lee Simmons was expecting her third child with boyfriend Djimon Hounsou when she attended Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party.

Kimora who heads up her own Baby Phat fashion line, chose her a maternity evening gown from A Pea in a Pod.

Kimora glowed in a rose gown with rosette detailing on the shoulder.

The “Guiding Light” actress Marcy Rylan arrived with her fiancé Don Money at the recent Daytime Emmy Awards wearing the same gown.

The actress bloomed a lot more in her gown as she is expecting her first child in mid-October.

Both women show us how fabulous maternity gowns can look on the red carpet, but Marcy is blooming marvelous so she wins for me.

I looooove Camilla Belle in this multi-coloured geometric print Alexander McQueen Spring 2009 sleeveless dress.

As always she makes something that looks hard to pull off, look so effortless.

My only critique would be her hair.

14 year old Dakota Fanning is growing up so elegantly, unlike many former teen stars.

Her style is effortless, cute and always age appropriate. This strapless silver strapless mini dress with an origami detail on the bodice just proves that.

It was recently announced that Kimora Lee-Simmons is pregnant, and we got so see a first glimpse of her baby bump in her cute gold baby doll dress.

Rumer Willis fails to impress.

Are those girls laughing with her or at her?

Most Confusing/Worst Dressed Award
I understand the theme, and I understand that Christina Ricci was going for Wonder Woman here, but the pink ruins what could have been a great Givenchy dress.

Maybe if the pink had been black it would have worked.

Shame.

Not So Golden Girl Award
Mary-Kate Olsen’s custom-made Diane von Furstenberg gold sequined dress had plunging neckline, and a sexy slit, but looks slightly too big on her, which is strange considering the dress is customed.

Her hair is a disaster and ruins anything that is good here.

Worst Hair Award
A pair of straighteners would have sorted that mess right out.

I would have much preferred it if this Calvin Klein dress was a plunge-neck instead of a turtle neck.

Your TV Stylist & Your Red Carpet Stylist Should Meet Award
What is up with Blake Lively lately on the red carpet?

For me she is hitting foul balls left, right and center. Her style started off great on the red carpet, but has been on a downward spiral ever since.

Blake was meant to be the Sarah Jessica Parker of my sisters generation both on and off the red carpet, but it is just not working. She looks about 20 years older than what she is here in this Ralph Lauren Fall 2008 strapless gown with feathered detail….Booorring.

As usual, I expected more for young Blake. Whoever is dressing her for Gossip Girl, needs to sprinkle some of that magic onto the red carpet.

Where was Leighton Meester? She would not have looked this bad.

Most Disappointing Award
This one goes out to Victoria Beckham, David of course looks gorgeous.

I love Victoria Beckham so this hurts, but her dress is too see-through and she appears to have nothing underneath, so I feel like I can see her boobs, her face looks too pale and I usually like her hair up but on this occasion, not so much.

It would also have no killed her to have smiled at least once on the red carpet.

Worst Dress/Shoes Combo
Here is another person I was not expecting to see on the worst list.

Katie Holmes looks great from the ankles up. Her vintage Giorgio Armani red sequined beaded bustier and full ball gown skirt from the Fall 1993 collection is amazing as is her Boucheron jewels, but why OH WHY did she wear those blue Louboutins?

Worst Embellishments Award
I was torn on Mischa Barton’s Missoni dress for a while.

I like the chiffon straps, but I am not so keen on the dripping bead work and the gold skirt with a taupe overlay.

Lame Award
Isn’t it amazing how Michelle Trachtenberg has matched her skirt to her gold lame petal nipple covers?

She is not quite rockin’ this vintage YSL dress in a way I had hoped.

Far Too Safe Award
Sarah Michelle Gellar was far too safe with this black shapeless strapless Bottega Veneta dress.

Worst Hair Accessories Award
I know thanks to Gossip Girl headbands are back, but I am not loving the jeweled headband on Amanda Peet. I am also not crazy about her moody Derek Lam Fall 2008 strapless gown with a matching waist belt.

Most Uncomfortable Award
It looks like Eva Amurri can not breath in this Louis Vuitton Fall 2008 dress.

Eva is a busty lady, and this dress is crushing her lady lumps.

Worst One Sleeve Award
I am NOT a fan of the one long sleeve and this ruins what would have been a great night for Fergie in Calvin Klein.

One-shouldered or even strapless would have worked better.

Worst Use Of Colour Award
Kimora Lee Simmons’ kids did not colour-in her dress. This dress was actually designed like this by Kevan Hall.

Worst Lace Award
I was never a fan of the entire Prada Fall 2008 collection being lace and was hoping not see it on the red carpet.

Unfortunately Tilda Swinton is wearing this Prada Fall 2008 beige lace dress, and to make matters worse, she wore an orange brooch and a green velvet shoes.
