2009 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Katy Perry looked sensational wearing a thigh-skimming strapless Foley + Corinna dress, adorned with an oversized bow.

Her turquoise dress was set alight with bold red lippie, sky-high blood red Casadei heels, and a red Lulu Guinness lips clutch.

You all know how I feel about tights on the red carpet, so I don’t need to go there.

Amanda Seyfried was very easily my Best Dressed at this event, where she won Film Actress of the Year.

The “Mamma Mia” actress opted for a Peter Pilotto Fall 2009 multi-coloured satin dress, which gathers and drapes from the hip.

I do wish she had worn her hair back, as a lot of the interesting detail appears on the neckline and shoulders, but her sexy strappy gladiator heels, and gold clutch more than make up for that.

Estelle usually opts for complicated, edgy ensembles, but on this occasion she opted for a very beautiful and simple Stella McCartney shell print dress

The slender star wore her dress with a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood pearl and lace peep-toe pumps.

Estelle got the Editor’s Special Award. I will guess this is for conquering America, and just being fabulous.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley oozed effortless chic. The former Burberry model wore a simple black crystal embellished Gucci Fall 2009 mini dress, with open toe shoe boots from the same collection.

Jacquetta Wheeler also wore head-to-toe Gucci. Her look consisted of a dazzling silver sequined tunic, with black leggings, which I prefer to the runway grey version.

Her rock chick look is soften by the Gucci jeweled sandals, but I love that she didn’t opt out of the large chain statement necklace, as it gives her soft rock look an edge.

The two ladies represented Frida Giannini, who was awarded Fashion Designer of the Year.

Alexa Chung, the unofficial Chanel brand ambassador, won Presenter of the Year. She wore a ruffled shouldered silk mini dress, with a nipped in waist.

There’s not point mentioning the hair, as she rarely switches things up.

Her black and white sequined Chanel Spring 2009 ankle boots are worth mentioning. I love the bejeweled oversized bows.

For once this doesn’t feel like she tried too hard, this is the effortless Alexa I once really admired.

Kylie Minogue was named Woman Of The Year and Entrepreneur Of The Year at this event.

She wore her Emanuel Ungaro LBD with a swirly gold embellishment, with a leopard print cropped Dolce & Gabbana jacket, which she paired with a large gold pendent, gold Jimmy Choo’s, and a matching clutch.

Kylie always looks like she’s stuck in the 80s. I’m not a fan of this look at all.

Writer of the Year, Sophie Kinsella looked effortlessly gorgeous wearing a floral print Christian Lacroix Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with a jewel embellished collar detail.

Her ruby red metallic heels perfected this look, making her one of the Best Dressed at this event.

Fearne Cotton never lets me down on the red carpet. She arrived wearing a Moschino red satin dress, with a huge ruffled skirt, in red Moschino pumps, which showed off her tattoo.

I love her blonde hair styled in this big frizzy wave, and her cat-eyes.

Becki Newton, Comedy Actress of the Year, opted for this cute strapless Robert Cavalli pearl-print mini dress, which showed off her killer bod.

Her hair is a bit blah, as are the heels, but she did the right thing by keeping her accessories to a minimum.

Rachel Stevens dressed appropriately for the baking hot weather we experienced in London yesterday.

She opted for a soft pink chiffon dress, with a pleated skirt, and cowl neck, which she accessorised with an Anya Hindmarch Marbled leather clutch clutch, and white T-bar heels.

Having spent some time in the US, Michelle Ryan doesn’t appear to have picked up many red carpet tips. She’s wearing a gorgeous hot pink bubble sleeved Balenciaga maxi dress, but she is not injecting much life into it.

The only thing that excites is her statement necklace.

She won UK TV Actress of the Year at this event.

Kirsty Gallacher continues to fall down in my estimation. This time the TV presenter wore a asymmetrical body-con dress with fabric that was so sheer, you would see her nipples.

2009 Sony Radio Academy Awards

I feel nothing but utter disappointment looking at Kirsty Gallacher.

Zoe, a regular commenter, said yesterday that she felt Brit girls needed a lesson in style and poise, after viewing the British Soap Awards, and Kirsty fails to dismiss that claim.

What the hell was Kirsty thinking?

She’s wearing a Preen Power bandage dress, in a refreshing tangerine colour we haven’t seen before, but she goes and exposes her bra for the world to see.

The sad thing for me is, this isn’t a wardrobe malfunction, this is deliberate. For a Hollyoaks actress it may have gone unnoticed, but for a respected TV presenter….*shakes head*

Kirsty is better than this. Those of you who don’t know who she is will find it very hard to believe, but she is.

If I didn’t love Liz McClarnon so much, I would give her a telling off for wearing black on such a warm day in London yesterday, but I won’t because her Philip Armstrong Couture dress is beautiful, she didn’t wear tights, and she’s glowing with gorgeousity.

I love that bow detail on the shoulder of her dress, which she wears with a gold clutch, and gold Jimmy Choo Glenys watersnake sandals.

Before everyone went gaga over Alexa “I’m too cool for school” Chung, Lauren Laverne was the coolest girl on British television.

The presenter wore a graphic print yellow and black mini dress, with tights, a cropped jacket and and red Lulu Guinness clutch in the shape of lips.

I like everything from the hem of her skirt up.

I really love Kate Thornton. She’s sooo missed on the X Factor, I hate Kermit O’Leary. He’s the worst TV presenter in the world.

Her bangs are so cute, they really frame her face well, and they make her look about 10 years younger.

She wore her gorg asymmetrical fuchsia dress, with sparkling silver Gina heels.

Sharleen Spiteri wore a red Marc Jacobs Resort 2009 tulip dress, which I feel like I we’ve seen a million times before.

I don’t understand why Sharleen wore Givenchy lace ankle sandals, because the very detail of the sandal is lost over her thick black tights.

Who Wore Preen Better? Roisin Murphy, Rihanna or Kirsty Gallacher


With their hand resting on their hips, Roisin Murphy, Rihanna and Kirsty Gallacher, have all worn this now sold-out blue Preen dress.

Ahead of the fashionable pack was Roisin Murphy. She wore the dress back in September, when she attended Preen’s Spring 2009 show, during New York Fashion Week.

I liked her look, until I saw those booties.

Rihanna’s footwear was mesmerizing. She attended the Verizon/BlackBerry’s Grammy Party wearing her dress with a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte Spring 2009 heels.

UK TV presenter, Kirsty Gallacher let the dress speak for itself, by just adding a simple black clutch, bangle and pumps, when she attended the BAFTA Video Games Awards.

Rihanna wins this no question. Those heels are too fierce.

Social Events Of The Week

French President’s Official Visit, Mexico

French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife, Carla Bruni, attended an official welcoming ceremony at the National Palace, in Mexico this week.

The First Lady of France’s style is undeniably chic, as she injects her unique brand of sensuous femininity without appearing too sexy, wearing a blush-pink Dior skirt suit.

I’m adoring everything about this look apart from those darn kitten heels. I understand that she doesn’t want to overshadow her husband. But no matter what she wears, she will, so she should bin the boring heels, and bring out the killer heels.

“17 Again” Sydney Premiere

Taylor Swift walked the red carpet in a beautiful white Rachel Gilbert Amber halter neck dress, with gold Fendi heels.

I adore the white and diamante embellished details around the bust.

I’m very surprised she’s not a silver or gold metallic dress, which she tends to favour.

BAFTA Video Games Awards 2009

Kirsty Gallacher wore a blue body-con halter Preen dress, which was worn by Rihanna last month.

This is a strong look, which needs sexy figure, and great shoes. Kirsty fails with the shoes.

This dress deserves more than plain black pumps. Rihanna showed us that with her Nicholas Kirkwood strappy heels.

Monsters Vs. Aliens Premiere, Germany

When Reese Witherspoon got divorced, she started to explore her sexier side. Now I feel she has reverted back to her old self, which isn’t a bad thing.

She looked very sophisticated wearing a teal Valentino satin dress, with an embellished collar, and grey waist band to this event. Her look was complete with matching satin bow peep-toes and flawless make-up.

“The Great Buck Howard” New York Screening

Emily Blunt’s grey suit, is very ‘office interview’. It doesn’t have the same charm as Amy Adams’ white suit yesterday.

Her silvery grey satin blouse seems to be fraying as well, just to further put me off this look.

Selita Ebanks wears an oversized ivory blazer, which almost totally covers her cute sequined mini dress, which really spoils the look for me.

What I am lusting after, are her bubblegum pink Christian Louboutin Decoltissimo pointed pumps.

“Duplicity” London Film Premiere

Yet another black ensemble for Julia Roberts. I would like act surprised, but like Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie, she’s been here before.

Who Wore Herve Leger Better? Kirsty Gallacher or Jessica Stroup


UK TV presenter Kirsty Gallacher was the first to wear this asymmetrical Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2008 dress, which showed off her fabulously toned figure.

The colour-block dress, has a band that wraps around to create a rosette detail on the left hip, which she wore with black pumps.

Jessica Stroup wore the same dress to the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday night. She wore her dress with peep-toes, and her wavy hair back.

This has to be one of the hardest polls ever, because they both wear it amazingly well, and I was not crazy about either of their shoe choices. I will pick my fellow Brit Kirsty, because she has a more toned figure.

GQ Men Of The Year Awards Red Carpet

Daisy Lowe arrived with her Man of The Year, boyfriend Mark Ronson wearing a Giles Fall 2008 forest green gown.

The gown has lace inserts all over the skirt to give it some added sex appeal.

I would have loved to have seen Daisy wear this gown with her hair back.

Thandie Newton look beautiful again, after her red carpet appearance last night.

On this occasion she wore a multicolored silk paisley dress from the Erdem Fall 2008 collection with Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

The colours of the dress were blurred together in places, with the added detail of fine embroidery.

I LOVE that Elizabeth Hurley has the balls to wear this amazing Versace dress. I am more than 10 years younger than her, and I don’t think I would have had the guts to wear it.

I love the Wonder Woman-esqe silver and black metallic bodice.

No doubt she make the headlines in the papers tomorrow.

Why do I feel like I have seen this dress a million times before?

Oh that’s right because I have.

I am very disappointed at Elle Macpherson’s lack of imagination here, with the standard halter Herve Leger dress.

Jamie Winstone is normally the wild cat of the red carpet, but she is very toned down here in this plunging green Alberta Ferretti dress.

I ♥ her shoes very much.

UK TV presenter Tess Daly Ashley Isham Fall 2008 metallic asymmetric dress with those very popular Jimmy Choo Glenys python sandals.

With some many great dresses on display, I wish Denise Van Outen would have done more than the LBD, but forgive her because of her gorgeous diamante Chanel shoes.

Kirsty Gallacher also opted for a black dress, but her Allesandro dell Aqua dress was not only plunging, but also had a lace panel around the waist.

She completed her look with Giuseppe Zanotti silver shoes.

Victoria’s Secret model and GQ favourite Miranda Kerr, arrived wearing a cute beige Burberry Prorsum mesh top cocktail dress which had a ruched bust. She wore this dress with Burberry Prorsum ruched platform pumps.
