Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Best Dressed Award
This is the impact I wanted Cameron Diaz to make, but instead that honour goes to Sienna Miller.

I love the sea green colour of her Swarovski-encrusted Twenty8Twelve Fall 2009 dress.

The length is perfect to show off her pins, and the shoulder pads are subtle enough not to draw any Balmain comparisons.

The Brit actress carried a silvery Chanel clutch, and wore pair gorgeous Nicholas Kirkwood gold heels, to complete this stunning look.

I Don’t Follow Red Carpet Rules Award
If we expected Kristen Stewart to wear a cute pink mini dress, with silver strappy sandals, we were wrong.

She hit the red carpet wearing a Yigal Azrouël Fall 2009 red and black dress, with a cross cross detail on the sheer yoke, and a wide black belt.

I can imagine her being wrestled into this dress, and her stylist compromising on the Converse sneakers, but she totally rocks this look.

Best Black Award
Leighton Meester took a risk at the Costume Institute Gala, which didn’t pay off for me, but this edgy cut-out Emilio De La Morena Spring 2009 dress totally works.

This interesting dress has peek-a-boo parts, sheer panels, folds, and cut-outs, which Blair Waldorf wouldn’t approve of, but totally love.

She completes her look with Brian Atwood Brie purple suede ankle boots.

Risk That Paid Off Award
Taraji P. Henson certain got into the spirit of this fun awards ceremony, wearing a black and white strapless printed Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 bustier dress.

The part French maid, part Chinese porcelain inspired look is definitely daring, and with her fun-loving personality she totally pulls it off.

I love how she plays up the ruffled detail on the back of her skirt, and her punky spiky new ‘do.

Moving Out Of Her Comfort Zone Award
This Moschino Fall 2009 red and navy floral print sleeveless dress with a ruffled hem, seems a little out of Lauren Conrad’s comfort-zone, which I really appreciate.

It feels a bit dark and mysterious, which is complemented with dark red lips, and black strappy booties.

I only wish she had pulled her hair back, to show off the floral shoulder detail.

Best Use Of Colour Award
I love to see bold bright colours on the red carpet, which is why I love Vanessa Hudgens peach satin Max Azria dress.

The dress is very grown up, but she injects her youthful glow and enthusiasm, to make this a perfect red carpet look, which she pairs with Jimmy Choo shoes, and a Nancy Gonzalez bronze clutch.

I really glad she didn’t go full on boho, with a printed maxi dress, which we’ve seen many times from her.

Hate The Hair, Love The Dress Award
I love Megan Fox’s black and gold Dolce & Gabbana strapless brocade cocktail dress, which she had shorten. It really suits her dark, mysterious persona, plus it shows off her toned figure.

She wisely kept accessories to a minimum, and added a bit of spice via her Christian Louboutin Differa sandals.

The biggest downsides are her hair, overly orange glow.

Best Theme Award
At first I hated Ashley Greene’s hair, but then I realised how much it worked with what appears to be a 40s housewife theme.

The hair works with her alluringly form-fitting Dolce & Gabbana floral print dress, with a beautiful, yet subtle voluminous skirt.

A neon yellow clutch, and bold red lips, add a touch of bright colour.

The Kate Beckinsale “This Is Not The Oscars” Award
I was really surprised to see LeAnn Rimes wearing such a formal gown by J.Mendel to the MTV Movie Awards.

She looks beautiful, she really does, but she’s a little overdressed.

Most Vanilla Award
Miley Cyrus opted for a very soft look for this event. I would’ve expected something with a lot more attitude, but she looks lovely in her pale pink cowl neck Moschino Cheap & Chic dress, which had a ruffled detail, going down her back.

The only hint of the wild rock wannabee Miley, was via her rings and bracelets.

Best Re-Run Award
I love Ashley Tisdale’s purple leather Elise Øverland dress, and the accessories she picked really punch up the look, especially those lust worthy Paul & Joe Sister heels.

We’ve seen this look before on the red carpet, but as Ashley wears it so well, that all is forgiven.

Surprisingly Not Predictable Award
I would have expected 3 things from Audrina Patridge.

1. Something low cut
2. Her black Alexander McQueen Bow Clutch
3. Her Balmain studded heels.

She blows that out of the water wearing a loose fitting paillette covered Joey Tierny Couture dress, with a dove grey Alexander McQueen clutch, and cream Louboutin heels.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Shoes Award
Keke Palmer’s look was almost perfect. I really loved her coral embellished Elise Øverland dress. It’s young, it’s fun, it sparkles, and it summery, but those grey booties lose her many points.

Stand Out Award
Malin Akerman stood out the most, because she is the only one who opted for pants, wearing a crisp, white Dolce & Gabbana suit, with a pale blue corset.

Her hair was sleeked back to complete this sophisticated look, which she didn’t over accessorize.

Most Summery Award
Yes Paris Hilton needs a new clutch and shoe combo, but there’s no denying her vibrant vest for spring and summery colours.

I love her cute coral Jenny Packham Spring 2009 strapless mini, with its ruffled skirt, and gold embroidered bodice.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun/Au Natural Award
Monique Coleman must have sensed when she looked in the mirror, that she would get ridiculed for her hair.  I admire her for ditching the extensions, and going au natural. I can’t see many others sporting this look.

Her Christian Louboutin Spartenvol Strass sandals complemented her silver and black spacey mini tutu dress, which you may all hate, but I will take this over a mini dress with tights any day.

She wanted to have fun at this event, and it shows.

Woot woot. Taraji P. Henson makes a long awaited return to the red carpet, and she proves by wearing this vintage Emanuel Ungaro fringed flapper style dress, with Azzedine Alaia boots, that her awards season run was not fluke.

After wearing a gorgeous 3.1 Phillip Lim dress the other night, this white Camilla and Marc dress for some reason reminds me of loo roll.

Not a flattering look, and so disappointing as I was considering putting her on a pedestal.

LOVE Kelly Osbourne in this black and white striped dress. The volume on the skirt of her bandage dress is blowing me away.

Her look is complete with Gina heels, and a Swarovski clutch.

Garcelle Beauvais was wearing a gorgeous strapless jersey LWD from the BCBG Max Azria asymmetric dress collection, but I’m captivated by that stunning statement necklace.

Jordana Brewster is wearing a really nice draped Christian Dior dress, but there’s TOO much black going on for a party titled ‘Hot Hollywood Style‘.

The same kinda applies to Fergie, although her look has a very interesting and distinctive edge to it, with the leather vest, over a fringed DSquared dress.

My main criticism is the hair.

Fergie, please decide what colour you wish your hair to be. At present I see black, I see brown, and a touch of honey colour highlights. I admired the changed at first, but now it’s looking like a home colour kit gone wrong.

Estelle, we’re used to seeing you in edgy design no one else would dare wear, but you’re just not the maxi dress wearing kind.

Her dress Layla, is wore with a Juliette Jake clutch.

Like Halle Berry’s striped maxi earlier this week, Shanna Moakler’s white

Foley+Corinna maxi dress, with multi-coloured stripes screams summer vacation.

I do though admire her creativity, in trying to match her eye make-up, to the colours on her dress. It looks like she gave up after trying 3 shades, thankfully.

Eliza Dushku opted for black and white stripes in this Moschino dress.

The party’s hot, she so Hollywood, so it was only natural Paris Hilton arrived at this event.

She snugged up to her beau wearing a Junko Shimada two-tone mini dress, with a Chanel purse, and Trib Two’s. Her jewels are outstanding.

Martina McBride wears a black strapless Miu Miu LBD, with her wonderfully voluminous dark locks and a Yigal Azrouel statement necklace.

Meagan Good wore a barely there LBD, under a black leather jacket. Her yellow strappy sandals was the only dash of colour she added to her look.

With regards to what Annie Wersching is wearing, some might say this is more negligee than red carpet ready, I would just be thankful it’s not black.

I must say I’m starting to really dig Lauren Conrad’s style. Her red carpet looks have never blown me away, but this citronella 3.1 Phillip Lim tiered ruffle tank dress, is gorgeous.

Her tan accessories really perfect this look, and her lighter hair and nude tinted lips gives her a subtle glow.

After her grossly over prices collection has been put on hold, Lauren Conrad is now producing a range for discount department store Kohl’s. Some people are just born lucky.

Audrina Patridge wears a wide waist belt to nip in the waist of her Stella McCartney blue/grey one-shoulder dress, which she wears with her favourite Alexander McQueen bow clutch.

She gets plus points for everything apart from the hair. I love her as a brunette, and I’m just not in love with those highlights.

Whitney Port wore a typical Whitney-style boho inspired maxi.

I love the draped bodice and her honey-coloured hair.

Lo Bosworth would have got the thumbs up for this look, had it not been for the clutch.

Her jewel tone sapphire blue skirt, and turquoise top are a perfect combination, but that cyan coloured clutch clashes with the rest of the look.

I wondered who would be the first celebrity to be spotted shopping in Topshop New York, and that person was Lauren Conrad.

After arriving in the Big Apple, her first stop was at the Soho store on Thursday.

The reality star must have had a great time, as she left with a very large bag of goodies.

Her look was casually fine – as always – looking cute in a rolled sleeved black blazer, cashmere scarf, leggings, tall boots, and a lust-worthy caramel Chanel purse.

Just to seal her star status, she wore a pair of Chloé Myrte sunglasses.

The sunglasses have gunmetal inlays which stylishly contrast with the glossy resin of the round sunglasses, fashioned with gradient lenses for a modern look.

You can buy them from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $290, or the international site for £196/€270.

Opening Ceremony Of The 33rd HKIFF Gala Premiere, Hong Kong

Hong Kong actress, and ambassador of the Hong Kong International Film Festival Karen Mok, arrived at the premiere of Shinjuku Incident, looking adorable in her Roberto Cavalli floral gazare strapless mini dress.

The dress has raised fabric panels on the hips, with a skirt of tiered ruffles at the back.

She wore the dress with gold heels, and nude fishnet tights.

These Cavalli dresses become more appealing with each wearer.

The U.S. Fund For UNICEF’s TAP Project for The Richie-Madden Children’s Foundation, LA

Nicole Richie is a pro at boho-chic dressing.

The mum-to-be channeled her usual 70s chic in a tie-dye blood red and blue silk maxi dress.

The dress does all the talking, as she kept her accessories to a minimum.

Rachel Zoe’s floor-sweeping yellow and grey ikat Jenni Kayne Spring 2008 gown is very much on the tribal trend.

The celebrity stylist works uptown boho, with wavy blonde locks and multiple gold bracelets for that I just ‘threw this together’ look.

Lauren Conrad opted for silk nude slouchy top with cute black shorts.

Her look was pulled together with Christian Louboutin peep-toes, a black clutch and a two necklaces.

Lauren is all smiles considering her Lauren Conrad Collection has been put on hold citing the “economic climate”. I guess us shoppers don’t want to purchase a $225 tank dress, which even Lauren won’t wear.

An Evening With Neil LaBute And Friends, New York

Kerry Washington wore a Celine silk blouse with an attached beaded necklace. I love her cute tangerine and white scorpion print Sariah skirt, which sits high on her waist.

She completed her look with black pumps.

Conde Nast Traveler 2009 Awards, Madrid

Aitana Sanchez Gijon wore a black strapless Oscar de la Renta Embroidered taffeta dress, which was presented in the Resort 2009 collection.

The beautiful actress completed her look with black and diamante embellished peep-toes.

Martina Klein certainly came to dazzle in her electric blue mini dress, which was embellished with silver sequins.

The model wore grey peep-toes, with complimented her grey Louis Vuitton clutch, and her art deco diamond bracelet.

Actress Clara Lago wore an alphabet black fringed flapper-style dress, with black pumps.

I love this one-shoulder striped dress, model Maria Leon is wearing. Her fuchsia pink accessories compliment her dress well.

TV personality Paula Vazquez wore a LBD, with a peek-a-boo bodice. Her look was livened up with a neon yellow clutch, and stunning gold jewelery.

Lauren Conrad celebrated her 23rd birthday recently with her BFFs Lo Bosworth, and her new boyfriend, actor Kyle Howard.

The crew partied at the Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas.

The birthday girl was wearing a green-and-black sheer tunic, embellished with sequins from the Proenza Schouler Resort 2009 collection as a dress.

You may remember Maggie Gyllenhaal also wore this tunic, when she attended the CFDA Awards last June, but she wore hers with silk pants.
