Red Carpet Fashion Awards

LeAnn Rimes wore a silver layered Julia Clancey Spring 2008 dress when she walked the red carpet at the 2008 CMT Awards.

The country singer wore her dress with layered necklaces and marcel waves to complete her 1920s flapper style look.

Shanna Moakler wore the same dress when she arrived at the “Smoak” cosmetic launch in LA last week.

Both women wore silver heels, but I must prefer Shanna’s sparklers.

This silver dress really didn’t need any added jewelry, so Shanna wins for me.

MORE FROM RED CARPET FASHION AWARDS:

Posted by Catherine Kallon on October 16th, 2009 In: Julia Clancey, LeAnn Rimes, Shanna Moakler, Who Wore It Better?

Out & About in Double Bay, Sydney

Miranda Kerr was out shopping wearing an Isabel Marant Fall 2009 ensemble.

She combined a leopard print skirt, a boyfriend blazer and a grey sweater to achieve her off-duty look.

The manly boots are not what I would have worn, as they make her feet look really long.

It’s Y!ou Yahoo! Yodel Competition, New York

LeAnn Rimes is the 6th or 7th celebrity to have worn this Kimberly Ovitz Jacob jersey mini dress, but she’s the only one to have belted the dress.

It’s now the most worn dress on the red carpet, which really surprises me as I much preferred the Kimberly Ovitz Martin jersey cutout dress which was also favoured by AnnaLynne McCord and Olivia Wilde.

Philippe West Hollywood Opening Celebration, LA

Serena Williams wore navy patent heels and sheer shimmering tights with her 3.1 Phillip Lim beaded silk dress.

I don’t hate this look, but I’m sure some might argue her legs are too muscular for this dress but I would disagree.

My biggest problem is the champagne clutch.

Hammerstein Ballroom, New York

Kylie Minogue was greeted by her fans outside New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom were she has been performing.

The petite pop princess might have had a hectic schedule, but she wasn’t showing any signs of fatigue as she look beautiful wearing a YSL Fall 2009 grey jumpsuit, paired with a lace bandeau.

After the show she looked even better wearing a high-neck leather dress, paired with the same YSL Divine boots we’ve seen on Diane Kruger.

Ritz Carlton Hotel, New York

Jessica Simpson was spotted leaving her hotel in New York en route to the “FFANY Shoes On Sale” wearing a black belted coat from Stella McCartney’s Resort 2010 collection.

16th Annual QVC Presents FFANY Shoes On Sale, New York


When Jessica arrived at the event she whipped off her Stella McCartney coat to reveal a black and silver paillette covered Dolce & Gabbana LBD paired with a wrap-around black belt plus Debista 2 Pumps from her own footwear line.

Her hair was swept up into a messy up ‘do, whilst her eyes were sultry and smoky.

National Museum Of The American Latino Commission Press Conference, Washington

Eva Longoria wore a red Diane von Furstenberg sheath dress paired with nude pumps.

I would’ve never considered red and nude together, but it’s a very interesting colour combination.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Sienna Miller wore Pierre Hardy suede pumps paired a black harem pant jumpsuit with a bejeweled shrug.

I’m not particularly crazy about the top layered part of the jumpsuit, but she looks beautiful as always.

2009 MAD Paperball Gala

Rose McGowan matched her bright red lips with her red structured bow accented top and a black mini skirt.

Her vintage Bill Blass ensemble certainly has the wow factor.

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.

The Kentucky Derby is all about the hats, and their were many beautiful creations on display this weekend.

Kim Kardashian’s grey hat, with black organza and feathered detailing, was teamed with a sexy white sheath dress, hugging her in all the right places, plus black accessories, including gloves, a clutch, and patent pointy heels.

I love this look, and how she still manages to look sexy, but not tacky.

LeAnn Rimes wore a very wide brimmed ivory hat, with a red scarf tied to it, which complimented her cute bow tie floral dress.

This is my favourite look, as it very much embodies the spirit of this event.

Eva Pigford, Marcille whatever she calls herself these days, also opted for black and white.

I would have loved this look if it hadn’t been for those black and white t-bar heels, as they cheapen her look.

All black? To the Kentucky Derby?

How totally unimaginative, boring, and such a safe option for Gabrielle Union.

I love Brooke Shields’ ivory jacquard dress. It’s cute with via the bow, and the length, and it’s sexy with the v-neck plunge, but she throws it all away with that blue spaceship-like hat. The net is the killer.

When it comes to Bethenny Frankel’s look, I don’t know what’s worse. The Benny Hill hat, or the pink asymmetrical ruffled jumpsuit.

BritWeek’s Designer Of The Year Fashion Show

Dita von Teese’s Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 ensemble, doesn’t have the same charm as Becki Newton’s last week.

Something is not quiet working for me, and I can’t decide whether it’s the shorts, or the hair.

Her look was teamed with stunning black/gold jewels, a metallic rosette, and Dolce & Gabbana satin wedge sandals.

So close. I was so close to loving this Todd Lynn Spring 2009 look on Rumer Willis, but was not sure about the shorts. Then it turns out that she’s not wearing shorts, but a very smartly tailored all in one.

I do love the dove grey tuxedo jacket with the wide lapels top half, and the fact that she wore it without a top underneath, but nil points for the bottom half.

Her hair is looking much better now though.

Lynn Collins also wore Todd Lynn. Her look was from his Fall 2008 collection, which included a white tuxedo jacket with 2 black buttons, and black pants from the same collection.

She completed her look with a pair of Christian Louboutin for Todd Lynn heels, with a hair weft weaved into the back.

I’m really enjoying seeing Lynn on the red carpet. She hasn’t played the safe card yet.

“Cutlass” Screening, New York

Kate Hudson is the producer/director of the short film Cutlass.

Glamour magazine threw a celebratory party this weekend for the film, in which Kate arrived looking quite spectacular wearing a Stella McCartney black velvet devoree dress, with black peep-toes, whilst flashing a peace-sign and a megawatt smile.

17th Annual Kennedy Center Spring Gala

LeAnn Rimes opted for this eggplant Stella McCartney strapless dress from the designers Spring 2009 collection.

Lavender suede Louboutin’s complete this cute look, but that berry shade of lipstick doesn’t do her any favours.

Barnstable Brown Party Celebrating The 135th Kentucky Derby

Brooke Shields’ white strapless Angel Sanchez Spring 2009 gown, with black ribbon details on the front is gorgeous, but I can’t help wishing she had done something more with her hair.

Paris Hilton walked the red carpet wearing a figure-hugging Tadashi black lace dress, with an eye-catching Charlotte Russe feathered cocktail headband, and Trib Two’s.

Her other accessory was her boyf, Doug Reinhardt. They’re inseparable at the moment.

The Rally for Kids with Cancer Scavenger Cup – “The Winner’s Circle” Gala Dinner, LA

Eva Longoria continued to show her support for this event, by attending the gala dinner wearing a mocha Halston Spring 2009 strapless jumpsuit.

I love what she is wearing, plus the hair and the make-up, but I have a huge bug-bear about clothes dragging on the floor like this.

Best Dressed Award
Carrie Underwood always looks fantastic on the red carpet, but I feel like she deliberately stepped it up a gear for this event.

The ‘hint of pink’ one-shouldered Randi Rahm gown was so beautiful, elegant and so far away from what I expected, that she was my best dressed for this event.

Golden Girl/Hips Don’t Lie Award
Kellie Pickler also opted for a golden gown. She looked outstanding, as she showed off her curves in her gold strapless sequin fish scale Zuhar Murad Haute Couture Spring 2009 gown with dramatic train, whilst carrying a Daniel Swarovski gold clutch.

What an absolute knock out. I am amazed at how smokin’ hot her body looks here.

Best Dressed Teen Award
Taylor Swift also changed gears. I was also expecting a blinged out, metallic, heavily embellished dress from her, but instead we got this gorgeous red hot Angel Sanchez Spring 2009 one-shouldered gown, which she complimented with red lipstick.

My first I thought was the gown needed something to nip in her waist, but on hindsight it would have ruined the sleek line of the gown.

The singer wore her dress with Neil Lane jewels, and a VBH envelope clutch.

2 For 2 Can’t Hate Award
I can’t hate Miley Cyrus’ clay grey Monique Lhullier one-shouldered gown, which was jeweled embellished, but I can really hate the hair.

Yes she is a teen, but side pony’s are not acceptable pass the age of 5.

Most Predictable Award
I love Nicole Kidman for the instant glamour she brings to every event, but I would really love to see her embrace other designers more often.

Again we see her another L’Wren Scott gown, from the designers Fall 2009 collection. The turtle-neck gown, with a cut-out back, and revealing split was a great look for the actress, who was at this event to support her husband.

Oh, did I mention L’Wren Scott is her stylist?

Best Carrie Underwood Impersonation Award
As much as I love Julianne Hough’s gold and bronze beaded v-neck Zuhair Murad gown, I just keep thinking that this is something Carrie Underwood would have worn to this same event maybe 2 years ago.

Gorgeous girl, gorgeous dress, but the de ja vu’s got me thinking mmmm?

Just OK Award
After Jennifer Nettles amazing dress at the Grammy’s this gorgeous lilac plunge-neck gown feels like a safe choice. I would have liked to see her wear something more lively, to go with her fun loving personality.

She looks hot though.

Most Disappointing Award
With all the colour on the red carpet, I am surprised LeAnn Rimes opted for a LBD.

I love the serpent ring and gladiators though.

Best White Gown Award
There were a lot of white gowns on this red carpet, but I particularly loved Jennifer Love Hewitt’s. She wore a white flowing, ethereal Robert Rodriguez halter gown, with a tiered bodice.

I also loved that she wore her hair up.

Best Clutch Award
Miranda Lambert wore a racy red strapless Nicole Miller minidress, but I feel myself more drawn to her gold Mary Norton clutch.

On Trend Award
Martina McBride follows the trend of night wearing a white flowing Badgley Mischka gown. The gown was embellished with embroidered turquoise beads and jewels on her shoulder.

De Ja Vu/Re-Run Award
Marissa Miller should know that re-runs at major events are frowned upon. January Jones wore this very same Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 dress to the Emmy Awards last year.

Next time Marissa, please do your red carpet homework.
