Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Nicole Kidman looks AMAZING.

L’Wren Scott dressed her client in Prada for her previous red carpet appearance to a weak applause, today Nicole is blowing me away in a hot pink L’Wren Scott Spring 2010 embroidered gown.

I love the cut, and the sexy silhouette which gives Nicole some curves we’ve never seen before.

Yes we’d love to see a Nicole switch up her designers more often, but when she looks this great in Scott’s designs it’s no wonder she keeps going back for more.

BDOTW contender for sure.

If any of you are surprised Taylor Swift is wearing a gold glittering with sequins, you haven’t been reading this blog for very long.

This is Taylor’s trademark, and I don’t blame her.

This Reem Acra sequin strapless gold gown with tulle skirt looks like a Princess dress, and I’m sure she felt very special wearing it.

Every princess has a prince, so it’s shame Taylor Lautner was in London on her big night.

She’s another contender.

From the sublime to tragic.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen Kellie Pickler look so bad.

It’s not the fault of her David Meister pewter lame gown, it’s the hair.

The strawberry blonde colour doesn’t work. This is worst than a blonde Katharine McPhee.

Martina McBride wore a Georges Hobeika Fall 2008 Couture silver metallic strapless gown with a beaded bodice.

I loved the gown, but the draped detail on the hips didn’t work for me on Martina.

Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland never disappoints on the red carpet.

This time she wore a stunning strapless Luisa Beccaria Fall 2009 midnight blue siren tulle gown with a frilly detailed hem and train.

Michelle Branch shuns wearing a gown to give us a young cute look wearing an aqua blue Matthew Williamson jewel detailed dress from the Fall 2009 collection.

Carrie Underwood typically gives her big hair and an embellished dress, but her Theia dress is a bit shapeless for my liking.

Leann Rimes should be wearing red. j/k

The good girl gone bad lives us to her current image by vamping things up with heavy make-up, but contrasts that with a white angelic 3.1 Phillip Lim gown.

Faith Hill wore a beautiful mauve strapless Azzaro gown which already had a jeweled halter strap, so I’m confused as to why she then added more necklaces.

Feels like overkill to me which is a shame.

Miranda Lambert opted for a Nicole Miller gown with an open back and beaded details on the shoulders.

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.

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.
