More From The 2009 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Of the rest, Laura Linney was definitely the best.

I love the mellow yellow colour of her asymmetrical Elie Saab Spring 2008 Couture gown, and the embellished waist. She looked outstanding.

Taraji P. Henson looked gorgeous in her J.Mendel Fall 2008 chiffon gown. It was quite dramatic, without going over the top.

She completed her look with a black satin Mary Norton clutch.

The trend for wearing electric blue continues with Mary-Louise Parker. Her Carlos Miele Spring 2009 gown had asymmetrical tiers from the bodice, and a chiffon hem and train.

She accessorized her gown with silver jewels and a Mary Norton clutch and Chopard jewels.

Sandra Bullock was another one of my favourites in this vanilla Dior gown.

I love how her hair falls to the opposite direction of her asymmetrical gown.

Rachel Griffiths wore a one-shouldered golden Ralph Rucci silk gown, with a Judith Leiber vintage handbag Decades Inc, Liseanne Frankfurt jewels and bronze Vanessa Noel heels.

Kyra Sedgwick did not wear L’Wren Scott as I had predicted. Instead she wore a strapless red belted Oscar de la Renta gown, with Fred Leighton jewels.

Amanda Seyfried wore an ethereal pearl Stella McCartney silk asymmetric gown, which had a beaded detail on the shoulder.

She completed her look with a Daniel Swarovski clutch.

Heidi Klum wore an incredibly cute strapless vintage James Galanos pouf dress, with black and red polka dots from Decades.

She completed her look with Christian Louboutin multi buckle sandals.

I was not crazy about Isla Fisher’s two-tone nude Carlos Miele Spring 2009 gown. I would have liked it to be all one colour.

Elisabeth Moss was one of the many ladies who picked red last night, hers was vintage Givenchy, and she picked Garrard jewels to complete her look.

Jane Krakowski opted for a J. Mendel gown, which she wore with Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry.

Melissa George does not do safe, which is why her thigh-high split ice blue Armani Prive gown has an interesting black fan detail on the bodice.

Tina Fey’s Roberto Cavalli plunging gown, also did not wow me.

Surprise guest of the night was Alek Wek. I don’t remember the last time I saw her on the red carpet.

The supermodel wore a Christian Dior Fall 2008 mini dress, which showed off her impossibly long legs.

Vanessa Hudgens wore a nude beaded Alberta Ferretti gown, with a candy coloured necklace.

Madeline Zima looks youthful but elegant. She has an amazing figure and I love how this dress shows her shape and the curves hit all the right points.

Viola Davis’ gown for some reason reminded me of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Zac Posen Oscar 2007 gown with shape and the lines.

She dressed well for her figure, and the colour is so complimentary to her skin.

Maria Menounos wore a cute purple ruffle one shoulder Ina Soltani gown.

Samantha Harris wore the same designer, but picked her dress in the colour of the moment – electric blue.

Christina Hendricks has curves to die for. The stunning redhead looked ravishing wearing a custom black silk sculpted strapless Tadashi gown.

Anna Paquin wore a purple Herve Leroux gown, which had a ruched bodice and draped detail on the side.

22.09.08 Best Dressed

2008 Emmy Awards Red Carpet – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
Best Dressed was a close call between Brooke Shields and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, but Brooke’s fuchsia Badgley Mischka Resort 2009 gown, with its ruffled asymmetric detail on the skirt, was beautiful and had a very romantic feel to it

She let her dress do all the talking, by keeping the accessories to a minimum.

This is not an easy dress to pull off, but Brooke did with such style and grace.

Most Sexy Award
Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Narciso Rodriguez gown was elegant, with an added wow factor. I fell in love the second I saw it.

The salmon coloured dress suits her complexion, and dress gives her a very sensual silhouette.

The beaded bodice, and the keyhole detail make this dress stand out.

Her diamonds were from Tiffany’s.

White Hot Award
Kyra Sedgwick wore a magnificent L’Wren Scott Spring 2009 white cocktail dress, which had crystals embroidered into the straps and bodice of this dress, for added va-va-voom.

Kyra usually always wears L’Wren Scott, as the dresses are figure-flattering, sleek and chic.

She accessorized with Fred Leighton jewels, and Jimmy Choo sandals.

Best Strapless Award
A high profile red carpet event, is not complete without an Elie Saab dress.

I loved the Elie Saab Fall 2008 Couture embroidered tulle dress Marcia Cross wore last night. The dress had a vintage feel to it, which played on her classic beauty.

She accessorized with Rene Caovilla heels and Hearts on Fire diamonds.

Best Brand Ambassador Award
Tamara Mellon the CEO of Jimmy Choo, and the person responsible for relaunching Halston, is wearing both design here.

Her cobalt blue asymmetric dress is from the Halston Spring 2009 collection, her canary yellow shoes, and zebra print clutch are of course Jimmy Choo.

Best Earrings Award
Christina Applegate’s looked quite regal, as her hair was swept back, allowing us to see her stunning jeweled earrings.

The actress wore baby blue asymmetric Reem Acra Spring 2009 gown, with a gold print, and a stunning train.

She accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz diamonds and Jimmy Choo heels.

Best Silhouette Award
I don’t think Christina Hendricks’ forest green gown was corseted, but she certainly has a stunning silhouette here.

I am so jealous.

Green is a great colour for her, and it’s a colour we have seen other red heads wear on the red carpet.

Best Yellow Award
Mariska Hargitay’s Carolina Herrera one-shoulder gown stood out the most on the red carpet.

The colour was bold, vibrant and refreshing on the red carpet.

She accessorized with Fred Leighton jewelry and Jimmy Choo heels.

Most Elegant Award
Olivia Wilde always manages to look so stunning on the red carpet, and does so again in her Reem Acra gown.

The dress is exquisite with its simple details, and subtle shade, that evokes the glamour of old Hollywood.

She accessorized with Jimmy Choo heels, Stuart Weitzman clutch and Kwiat jewels.

Most Improved Award
Wow, you could have knocked me down with a feather when I saw how stunning Nicollette Sheridan looked in her purple pleated Angel Sanchez Fall 2008 gown.

What a great event for her to turn down the tacky.

I would have loved this look more, if her hair was put up in an elegant updo.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Hair Award
I adore this turquoise Calvin Klein strapless gown on Cynthia Nixon. It makes her appear soft, and it brings out the colour of her eyes.

My only compliant was her hair. It has a very mumsy feel to it.

Best Elie Saab Award
Lost actress Evangeline Lilly, has been missing from the red carpet for a while, so I had forgotten how stunning she can look.

Last night she wore one of my favourite dresses from the Elie Saab Fall 2008 Couture collection.

The paillette covered dress caught every beam of light, making this dress come alive with every step, as she posed on the red carpet.

Best Couture Award
This Armani Prive dress which Heidi Klum wore may not be appreciated by some because of the cape, but I simply adore it.

I love how the cape and the skirt’s asymmetric detail flowed in the same direction, and the Swarovski crystals that sparkled, as she did in the dress.

Best Black Award
Black can be very boring on the red carpet, but Debra Messing’s dramatic Monique Lhuillier Spring 2009 strapless gown, was far from boring.

The dress had lots of layers of embroidered tulle, which grabbed my attention, and really made her dress, stand out from the other black dresses on the carpet.

She accessorized with Fred Leighton diamonds.

Best Embellishment Award
Kate Walsh’s Zuhair Murad mermaid gown was tiered with embellished details, and completed with a rose appliqué. The stunning dress gave her a delightful silhouette.

The red haired actress carried a Jimmy Choo Kase oval clutch and wore Neil Lane diamonds to complete her look.

Best Floral Trend Award
Vanessa Williams’ custom-made Kevan Hall gown was very much still on this summers floral trend.

The jeweled detail on the strap of her dress, compliments her diamond bracelet and 3-drop earrings.

Best Lace Trend
Like Vanessa, Sandra Oh managed to incorporate a trend into her look – lace.

Her black silk organza and tulle Oscar de la Renta Resort 2009 gown, had a lace bodice, and a sash at the waist.

Her hair was swept to the side with loose curls.

She accessorized with Bulgari jewels, a vintage Chanel purse, and Chanel heels.

Best Dress/Clutch Combo Award
Some people might think it lacks imagination for matching items that you are wearing, but Tina Fey does it so well by matching this rich egglant David Meister sweetheart necklined gown, to her jeweld clutch.

Best Marchesa Gown
Jennifer Morrison’s Marchesa Spring 2009 gown was beautiful, as it had a princess quality to it, with its rich champagne colour, beautiful draping an train.

The colour was exquisite on the actress, which she matched with peep-toes heels.

Best Cocktail Dress Award
There were a lot of gowns and dresses that fell just below the knee last night, but Padma Lakshmi opted for a gold embellished Monique Lhuillier Spring 2009 knee-lenght dress.

The stand out dress, had a cowl back, swirling gold beaded embroidery detail and a tulle hem.

The presenter kept the gold theme going, but wearing gold strappy sandals and a gold clutch.

Brightest Smile Award
Kristin Chenoweth had the biggest and brightest smile, as she walked the red carpet last night.

The multi-talented star wore a black Armani Prive gown, which had a cute bow detail on the front.

As she walked the red carpet, I marveled at how her dress managed to stayed up.

Greatest Gainer Award
I started off disliking Jenna Fischer’s Gustavo Cadile custom-made gown, but then it grew on me when I saw it on TV.

These pictures do not do the green chiffon strapless sweetheart neckline gown justice.

Best Halter Award
I was also undecided about Perrey Reeves in this Temperley London gown with intricate detailing on the bodice and neckline. But after seeing so much black and other dark colours, I realised that her cream gown was a welcome relief.

Best One-Shoulder Gown
Jane Krakowski’s one shouldered Versace Fall 2008 gown, was very interesting, as the detail on the shoulder consisted of folds, cut-outs and beaded embroidery.

Best Vintage Award
Rachel Griffiths wore a chocolate brown vintage Bob Mackie gown from Decades.

This gown has a bustier top, with a chiffon skirt, which has a thigh-high peek-a-boo split.

The actress completes her look with Christian Louboutin shoes, and and Alexander Knight clutch.

28.01.08 Best Dressed

Screen Actors Guild Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award

Amanda Bynes on her first major awards ceremony stood out from all the other veterans wearing this gorgeous Marchesa 2008 Resort strapless embellished gown.

Love the hair, but might have been better pulled back.

Joint Best Colour Award

This strapless cobalt blue L’Wren Scott Spring 2008 gown on Kyra Sedgwick was pure perfection.

Kyra has an amazing body, and this dress showed it off.

Joint Best Colour Award

These pictures do not do Vanessa Williams bright canary yellow Escada gown any justice. I was more even more vivid on TV.

Everything here is perfect, excluding her tan lines.

Best Over 50 Award

Glenn Close is stunning. Amazing for her 60 years.

I wish Meryl Streep would dress like this on the red carpet.

Risk That Paid Off Award

I know most of you probably hated this dress on Sandra Oh, but I loved it.

She took a risk by not choosing a major well known designer, but for me it works.

I loved the bow and the colours.

Most Fashion Forward Award

None of the other ladies on the red carpet would have dared to wear this sculpted Nina Ricci Spring 2008 strapless gown, and that is why I love Ellen Pompeo.

Best Embellishments Award

Debra Messing in Oscar de la Renta Spring 2008 stepped away from her usual black and her usual Michael Kors.

I loved the embellishments on the dress the first time I saw it on the runway, but I never picture Debra wearing it, but she does pull it off.

Best Haute Couture Award

Despite not going to any of the Haute Couture Fashion Shows at Paris Fashion Week last week, Christina still managed to get this Elie Saab Fall 2007 gown.

In typical Elie Saab fashion, the gown is embellished and uber glamourous.

Best Red Carpet Pose Award

No one can do that “sticking your ass out, while looking over your shoulder seductively pose” quite like Eva Longoria. So it was no wonder she chose a sexy Naeem Khan Spring 2008 backless dress to show of her derrière.

I am glad that there are no bangs in sight, and I see that Eva continues to favour the curly do for red carpet appearances.

Joint Best Black Award

Sans her fiance Michael Bolton, Nicollette Sheridan was stunning on the red carpet last night wearing a black strapless Marchesa gown.

This is by far the best I have ever seen her look.

Joint Best Black Award

Ana Oritz was smokin’ hot in this Pamela Dennis black body hugging gown.

Best Arm Candy Award

Keisha Whittaker looked so cute wearing this bubble gum pink Jenny Packham Spring 2008 sweetheart necklined gown.

She is always the perfect accessory for Forest Whittaker.

Most Improved Award

Brittany Snow has had a very inconsistent red carpet of late, but she looks great here in this Zuhair Murad sequined gown.

Best Pre-Fall 2008 Dress Award

Most Pre-Fall 2008 dresses are not usually red carpet ready, but Teri Hatcher looks divine in this floral Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2008 fishtailed gown.

I laughed when she was interviewed and she said that the did not believe in botox.

Best White Award

Becki Newton is back to her best wearing an Elsie Katz Couture white sequined dress.

I particularly love the tiered skirt.

Best Jewels Award

I loved Sara Ramirez’ jewels by H. Stern and Bo Chic. Her earrings were a perfect compliment to her satin strapless fuschia Angel Sanchez Spring 2008 gown.

Meh…Just OK Award

Ashely Tisdale stood up well on such a big stage wearing this white Badgley Mischka Spring 2008 dress.

Back To Her Best Award

Marion Cotillard looks beautifully chic in this corseted, pleated, and gathered Nina Ricci Spring 2008 gown.



Best Hair Award

Marcia Cross is wearing a Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2008 teal gown. I think the colour works well with her red hair.

Best Colour Block Award

Jamie-Lynn Sigler is wearing an ensemble from Calvin Klein. The teal skirt is from the Calvin Klein Pre-Fall 2008 collection.
