Red Carpet Fashion Awards

I searched all over and couldn’t find anything modified on Donatella Versace’s Spring 2010 strapless blush gown.

I guess her mantra was in this case, ‘if it ain’t broke why fix it?’

I would go as far as to say that I prefer this gown on Donatella, because the bodice is more tightly fasten giving Donatella a stunning silhouette.

Shakira got the honour of wearing a gown from the recently presented Atelier Versace Fall 2009 collection.

The gunmetal gown had a corseted bodice which reduced the singers already tiny waist, before skimming her famous curves and revealing her sexy legs via a central split.

Leather details accented the strapless gown, which looks great on Shakira but fails to wow as I would’ve expected.

Despite Lake Bell wearing a simpler gown I love the way she totally owns this look.

The colour is divine on her olive skin and the cut accentuates her toned figure.

Taylor Momsen wore stunning nude Grecian Versace Fall 2009 chiffon gown embellished with metal details around her waist.

I love the gown, but hair and make-up pour cold water all over this look for me.

She could have laid off the heavy eye-liner for one night.

Nothing surprises me about Alexa Chung’s look. The ankle boots were very much expected.

I’m just glad she’s not wearing them with a beautiful gown.

Mischa Barton is already quite a broad shouldered girl, so I was surprised she picked the only gown from the Versace Fall 2009 collection which would highlight her broad shoulders.

The sapphire blue is beautiful on her though.

Lisa Edelstein may not have been wearing a Versace gown, but her Pamella Roland Fall 2009 black gown was just as a elegant as the rest.

I love the black velvet spiral detail around her waist and the bejeweled strap.

Great look for her.

If this was a model face-off Isabeli Fontana would win.

The Versace Fall 2009 aqua dress is hugging her in all the right places, whereas it’s just hanging off Chanel Iman.

Lindsay Lohan arrived at this event wearing a fluffy pink Versace Fall 2009 coat, but removed it inside to reveal a strapless gold mini dress.

I expected it to be from her recent Emanuel Ungaro Spring 2010 disaster collection, but the gold dress may have been custom made for her by Donatella for this event.

Since Jennifer Hudson had her baby boy we haven’t really seen her glammed up on the red carpet until this event.

She didn’t let us or herself down by looking like a fairytale princess wearing a blush pink Versace gown, which she paired with a matching pink clutch and diamond bracelets.

She was my 3rd favourite of the night after Lake Bell.

Taylor changed into a Versus Spring 2010 mini black dress, as she was the DJ at the after party.

I guess this explains the heavy eye make-up, as it’s much more appropriate for this LBD.

The stockings?? I can’t even go there.

Coco Rocha doesn’t quite ooze that fierceness that she used to, but she still looks gorgeous wearing a black and red floral print strapless Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2009 dress.

Maybe the reason I’m not crazy about this look is because I’ve seen it so many times before.

Also those Christian Louboutin ankle boots still remind me of a horses head every time I look at them.

Lydia Hearst was the model used to present the Marc Bouwer Spring 2010 collection, and I guess she loved the collection so much that she wore a red sequined mini dress with structured shoulders to this event.

Her dress is paired with silver Christian Louboutin Differa sandals and a black clutch.

If you thought Bally only did shoes and handbags, then you were mistaken as Joy Bryant wore Bally Fall 2009 feather print silk maxi dress with an asymmetrical sleeve to this event.

I love the dress, but those clunky brown boots are just horrific.

Many of you complain about Ginnifer Goodwin and Victoria Beckham never smiling, but you should add Lake Bell to that list too.

Not only is she not smiling here, but she looks quite peeved.

A nice smile would have warmed up this cute look, as I love her jacquard dress with a peplum at the waist.

Tinsley Mortimer looks like a real-life Barbie wearing a gold strapless Dior dress, paired with gold t-bar heels and a Jimmy Choo animal print clutch.

Olivia Palmero has said in the past that she’s a Topshop addict.

Well she doesn’t to disprove that fact by wearing a Topshop studded jacket paired with a metallic dress and blue suede ankle boots.

Like Olivia, Nicky Hilton opted for a very casual look for this event.

Keeping the studded theme going she wore a studded vest, paired with a white tank, black mini skirt and Brian Atwood Lola pumps.

Worst Dress Award
We’ve seen this Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2009 dress on Anne Hathaway and a sequined version on Amber Valletta. Both were beautifully styled.

Fabiola Beracasa decided to wear her blue snake-skin dress with a feathered concoction to add more dimension to her look, plus suede purple booties and a crazy updo.

Not a good look. In fact she looks quite scary.

You Can’t Wear Those Boots With That Dress Award
What was Agyness Deyn thinking?

She was wearing a pretty nude covered in gold sequined Anna Sui dress but it all falls apart the second she opted for those Marc by Marc Jacobs biker boots.

And just to stick a further nail in the coffin, she opted to wear a leather biker jacket.

I hate this schizophrenic style off dressing. You’re either wearing a cute sequined dress with strappy heels, or you’re a biker chick.

Pick a lane and stay in it.

This really hurts as I love Lake Bell.

Just a tiny pop of colour – even red lips – would have made a huge bit of different in this head-to-toe Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 look.

Looking as somber as she does doesn’t quite help either, plus I feel like ripping those sleeves off.

Nice Dress But…Award
Olivia Palermo wore a beautiful David Meister pink satin dress with an embellished panel on the bodice, and a peplum on the waist, but I’m perplexed as to why she would want to wear this kind of dress when she clearly doesn’t have the bust for it.

She looks like a child playing dress up in mummy’s clothes.

I’m thankful that she decided not to wear her favourite YSL Tribute sandals, instead she wore Topshop Passion Frill sandals.

Now would she please…oh please change that hairstyle.

Worst Posing Award
I couldn’t much focus on Tallulah Willis’ Calvin Klein Resort 2010 off-the-shoulder dress, because all I kept thinking about was pulling her shoulders back.

Bad posture just throws me.

Balmain With Tights Again? *eye roll* Award
I know I’m going to get lynched for this, but I just don’t understand Julia Restoin-Roitfeld’s obsession with wearing such short Balmain dresses then opting for tights.

The archetypal Balmain girl doesn’t wear tights imo. She has the confidence to walk tall in her mini dress, bold and sassy.

That being said I do love her black sequined dress and the Jessica Rabbit silhouette it gives her, but I think less bold runway version would have suited her better.

Fails To Flatter Award
Michelle Trachtenberg wore a very unflattering Behnaz Sarafpour Resort 2009 ensemble. She used to get it right all the time now she’s very inconsistent.

Last night was the ‘Webby Awards’, but with all the long tanned legs on display, it was more like the ‘Leggy Awards’.

Lake Bell arrived wearing a navy Rag & Bone one shoulder dress, with two black panels on the front and back of the dress.

I don’t think this is an easy dress to pull off, but Lake does. She looks sexy, and sassy, without looking trashy at all.

Roger Vivier scoubidou woven patent sandals, and a black clutch complete the look.

Molly Sims loves showing off her golden tan.

On this occasion she glows in a hot pink, patterned sequined mini sleeveless dress, paired with tan Louboutin peep-toes.

Mother of one, Alessandra Ambrosio, opts for the head-to-toe Balmain runway look, including the Balmain Crystal embellished studded sandals.

This for me is a very predictable look for a Victoria’s Secret Angel…

…much like Doutzen Kroes’ Hervé Léger banded ombré dress.

Stylist Rachel Zoe opted out of wearing a mini, in favour of this cold-shoulder ivory gown, with gold embellishments.

I love her lighter locks.

Update: I sent a twitter message to Rachel asking who her dress was by, and I was pleasantly surprised to get a reply. She was wearing vintage Halston.

2009 Fresh Air Fund Salute To American Heroes, New York

Michelle Williams wore a demure ivory one-shouldered 3.1 Phillip Lim dress, with an asymmetrical gold detailed bodice, which complimented her gold Jimmy Choo Frost mirrored leather sandals, and the trim of her YSL box clutch.

She looks divine in her heavenly dress.

Mariah Carey and Michelle are worlds apart, when it comes to dress sense.

After a few events in which Mariah stepped up her game, she kinda takes a few steps back in this white column Georges Chakra Couture gown.

The figure-hugging strapless gown, simple and beautiful, but that embroidered floral panel I really dislike, as it reveals her underwear.

Her gown is paired with Christian Louboutin Amelissa Platform Sandals.

“Star Trek” Press Conference And Photo Call, Mexico

Zoe Saldana’s ivory Bottega Veneta Fall 2009 leather dress, doesn’t have the same wow factor as so many of her other ‘Star Trek’ looks, but she still looks pretty damn fantastic.

I love how her hair is styled, and her natural make-up.

Brian Atwood black patent ‘Maniac’ pumps, complete this sophisticated look.

“The Hangover”, New York Screening

Molly Sims works a tailored look, pairing a Rag & Bone Spring 2009 metallic silver jacket, with cropped black trousers, and a white tank.

Sergio Rossi elasticated strappy ankle sandals, and a vintage necklace add more credit to this edgy look.

“Blood: The Last Vampire”, South Korea

Jeon Ji-Hyun really shouldn’t have worn thick black tights, with her cute white Chanel off-the-shoulder knit dress.

Talk about ruining a look.

Massimo Ferragamo Cocktail Party, New York

Lake Bell smolders in a red, high neck Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2009 dress, with black accessories.

W Hotel Grand Opening, Florida

Blake Lively keeps her twins covered – for once I hear you say – wearing an angelic white ruched Christian Cota dress.

She looks great with her trademark wavy locks, and purple strappy sandals, which almost match the purple carpet.

LG Xenon Splash Pool Party, LA

Hayden Panettiere is still glowing with her perfect tan, and glossy hair.

The actress looks super-cute wearing a mint green chiffon dress, with strappy metallic sandals.

This look really shows off her softer side, with loose curls framing her face, and flawless natural make-up.

Dania Ramirez wears a Sunner “Florent” combo linen and cotton jumpsuit which I love, but I don’t like her choice of bubble gum pink heels with the look.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Jessica Biel goes for a low-key, yet still very feminine look, wearing a beige leather mini skirt, which she teamed with a silk navy cami.

She accessorized with an ornate Tom Binns ‘Dumont’ necklace, a Prada denim bag, and chunky Gucci Iman T-strap sandals.

Kate Bosworth looked so gorgeous and fresh faced at this event.

As co-host she wore grey silk embellished tank, with a lemon floor length chiffon skirt from the Chloé Fall 2009 collection, all whilst showing off an embellished cream Chloé bag.

It’s just so easy for Kate.

Zoe Saldana is doing her best to state her claim as the ‘Girl of the Moment’.

She gives us hit after red carpet hit, and this Chloé Spring 2009 dress comes second in my admiration after her red Prabal Gurung dress last week.

This ethereal white shift, with a keyhole detail, just oozes sweet sophistication.

Definitely one to continue to watch.

Leighton Meester is the a typical Chloé girl, cute, sassy, young and beautiful.

I love her look, but her satin apricot Spring 2009 dress looks like it needs adjusting a little. It kinda looks a bit twisted on her.

I simply adore her bracelet, her hair and flawless make up.

Christian Louboutin Dillian Flower pumps from the 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2009 collection complete the look.

Chloe Sevigny, who co-hosted this event with Kate, wore a navy blue pant suit from the Spring 2009 collection, under a white blazer with scalloped edged lapels from the same collection.

Like her co-host this is easy for Chloe, and I appreciated her efforts in not wearing Look 29 as presented, and mixing things up a little.

Looking as stylish as ever, Camilla Belle opted out of wearing white, like so many others, but that only made her stand out even more.

Her leather-look Chloé Pre-Fall 2009 LBD, had cute bow ties going down the back. It maybe black, but it ain’t safe. Just look at how short it is.

Two-tone Chloé Spring 2009 heels, and a black clutch complete the look.

Wow so many of my girl crushes graced this event. Fabulous overload.

The absolute beauty of Lake Bell’s look, is how simple, clean and fresh it all looks.

She never tries too hard, but always looks outstanding.

January Jones wore a Chloé draped Grecian gown, belted with a blush pink sash.

Her make-up was a flawless as her dress.

Maria Sharapova serves up an other ace, proving her off-court style is worthy of our admiration.

The plunge neck nude Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with the navy sash is fabulous, but her hair and heels lose her a few points.

Molly Sims opted for a champagne and black printed dress from the Chloe Pre-Fall 2009 collection, with clear embellishments.

I love this sassy dress, which she wore with Chloé Spring 2009 bow heels.

Amber Valletta’s Chloé Spring 2009 asymmetric dress, with a ruffled neckline is very chic, but her hairstyle really lets her down.

I love these peachy/nude colours on Camilla Alves.

Her look was from the Chloé Resort 2009 collection, which included a boyfriend blazer, tank top, embellished mini skirt, nude heels and a clutch I would die for.

Gaile Lai’s khaki Chloé Spring 2009 jumpsuit is so incredibly chic, but I really don’t like her choice of heels.

Ever Carradine picked the only dress from the Chloé Resort 2009 collection, which I never expected to see on the red carpet. I really don’t think this dress will flatter anyone.

Estelle’s black playsuit is well accessorized, but I still feel like she is very muted lately. She’s not the Estelle we are used to seeing.

Emma Stone’s cobalt blue long sleeved shift dress, was worn with Jimmy Choo Samoa Kid sandals.

Dear Agyness Deyn, we all know break-ups are tough, but remember you’re flying the flag for British fashion. Please dress more appropriately in future.

Debbie Matenopoulos presents The Daily 10, and during awards season she also presents Fashion Police.

Debbie, I think it’s time for you to turn yourself in.

She is wearing a Alice + Olivia Penelope party dress.

This is your second to last chance to give your shout outs for Best Dressed this week.

Anne Hathaway’s white asymmetrical ruched Valentino dress is gorgeous from every angle. She looks outstanding.

After a so so awards season, this sees her return to her best.

Gwyneth Paltrow wore a black strapless Valentino dress, she has worn before back in 2003.

The dress is a fit for the occasion, but I am not wowed by it. Her hair and make-up is impeccable as always, and she completes her look with a stunning Chopard bracelet.

Claire Danes pistachio green Valentino Spring 2008 Couture cap sleeved dress makes her stand out, as this is the most sophisticated dress at the event.

It almost feels too sophisticated, but I would take more over less any day.

Selita Ebanks sure knows how to stand out in a crowd. The model arrived at this premiere, working the hell out of this Balmain Fall 2008 mini dress.

Talk about jaw dropping.

The very LBD has a lace overlay and stunning embellished details on the bust, shoulders and skirt. The sex appeal is amped up with zippers going across the body.

I am always grateful to Tinsley Mortimer for adding a burst of colour onto the red carpet.

If you are wondering were those colourful clutches she is always carrying are from, they’re self designed for her Samantha Thavasa range.

This particular apple green clutch, matches the green straps on her snake print Jimmy Choo Corsica strappy sandals.

Even a simple white shirt dress becomes a hot look for Padma Lakshmi.

I don’t think I have ever seen Agyness Deyn so muted.

The model wore a black velvet Marc Jacobs Fall 2008 hooded dress. I think this is one of two pieces that ever made the red carpet, from that very questionable collection.

I think Lake Bell’s expression says it all. Bad choice of dress.

Coco Rocha seems to be opting for a softer look these days, since she took on presenting duties for Style.com. Last night she wore a Jason Wu Fall 2009 ensemble.

The wine sweater, printed skirt combo, with a statement necklace is beyond fabulous.

Daphne Guinness looks a little startled.

Is it because someone informed the Guinness heiress that she is wearing the same Gareth Pugh Spring 2009 dress which Beyonce wore to the MTV Europe Music Awards?

Her look is complete with Christian Louboutin platformed Mary Janes, and a black Azzedine Alaia belt.

Georgina Chapman wore a black sequined and feathered Marchesa Fall 2008 dress, under a gold and black fur trimmed coat.
