Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Operation Smile Presents the 2009 Smile Event, New York

Ciara wore an ensemble from the Halston Fall 2009 collection, consisting of grey genie pants, a silk tuxedo jacket, and a python scarf.

The scarf is the very strong stand-out piece of this look, which I never expected to see on the red carpet, but Ciara makes it work.

Her look was completed with a pair of fierce multi-strappy Emilio Pucci Fall 2009 heels.

InStyle Hair Issue Launch Party, New York

Ali Larter is very pretty in pink wearing a Notte by Marchesa strapless silk ruffle dress, with black strappy sandals.

The dress is youthful, cute, and sassy, but I would’ve loved to have seen someone like Selena Gomez, or Miley Cyrus wear this dress.

Lisa Edelstein also wore a strapless Notte by Marchesa dress.

Her metallic animal print dress, had a black chiffon overlay, and was accented with a gold woven tie at her waist.

She completed her look with taupe Fendi bow-front peep-toes.

Socialite Olivia Palermo, adds some oomph to her patterned organza Notte by Marchesa tank dress with a black sequined Diane von Furstenberg jacket, and T-bar shoes.

“Management” Screening, New York

*sighs & gives up*

Jennifer Aniston walked the red carpet at this event which was co-hosted by Tommy Hilfiger wearing a grey dress, grey tights, and grey booties.

OK it’s not black, but it might as well be. The dress is actually quite sexy, but the all over grey just makes this looks soooooo boring.

“The Brothers Bloom” Screening, New York

Rachel Weisz went for a low key, yet still very feminine look, wearing a 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2009 printed dress, which was ruched down the front

She paired her dress with a gold box clutch, and black Jimmy Choo strappy sandals.

11th Annual “Tribute To The Human Spirit” Awards Gala, LA

Mark & Spencer’s campaign girl Myleene Klass, wore an electric blue Preen Line Tricks cotton drill dress, which hugged every inch of her curves, which she’s so rightfully proud of.

“Love & Dancing” LA Premiere

Amy Smart is wearing a geometric print Halston Fall 2009 asymmetrical dress. This dress may have cost hundreds of dollars, but unfortunately she make is look very bargain basement.

2009 Rainforest Alliance Gala, New York

Gisele Bundchen was a vision of pure gorgeousness, wearing a gunmetal grey backless Versace gown, which plunged so wickedly.

The orange earrings really pop.

What a knock out.

Freida Pinto looks nothing short of breath-taking, wearing this metallic one-shouldered Zac Posen Spring 2009 mini dress, to the Directors Guild of America Awards over the weekend.

She wore her dress with matching peep-toes, and her hair and make-up were totally flawless.

The former aspiring model has only had one bad day on the red carpet, which she’s more than made up for ever since.

Amy Adams arrived wearing a shimmering Jasmine Di Milo Spring 2007 dress, with silver and nude sequin details.

What I love is how the dress is cut low at the back, as Amy tries to shake her “safe on the red carpet” image.

Amy never lets me down, safe or not, so this is another fantastic look for me.

Silver Christian Louboutin Fortuna slingbacks complete the look.

Marisa Tomei has an amazing figure, and this white strapless Dior gown shows it off by giving her a very sexy silhouette.

She completes her look with a stunning silver necklace with heart-shape details, and a purple clutch.

Taraji P. Henson strapless Kaufman Franco dress really gives her a lift.

For some reason the necklace really bothers me. The bodice has such an interesting detail on it, but the necklace distracts me.

Taraji gets better and better this awards season.

Michelle Monaghan had a baby girl 3 months ago, and is already back on the red carpet looking stunning.

She shows us her post-baby figure for the first time, wearing a white strapless Giambattista Valli Spring 2009 dress, covered in black paillettes.

Rachel Griffiths is glowing in a champagne coloured Lanvin Fall 2008 dress.

Her jewels are by Neil Lane, and her silver clutch is by Alexandra Knight.

This is a nice enough Temperley London dress for Claire Danes, with the embellished shoulders, but something is missing.

A matching embellished belt perhaps?

Now this is one Herve Leger dress you guys just have to love.

Viola Davis’ dress has a chiffon skirt, to give it such chic elegant touch.

I am glad she opted for a gold clutch, which really grabs your attention.

I love Virginia Madsen. She is always so bold on the red carpet. Never hiding behind black, never covering up.

She has it, and she’s flaunting it.

You go girl.

I am loving the sparkling details on Lisa Edelstein LBD, which is very sexy.

Terri Seymour, the ex-girlfriend of Simon Cowell, used to always be well groomed on the red carpet.

The black turtleneck dress looks fab on her, because lets face it she has the body to carry it, but the crimped hair is such a big no-no.

I don’t think crimped hair has been cool since the 80s.

Whether it is flowing gowns or cute mini dresses, Olivia Wilde wears anything well, like this cream and black printed Sue Stemp Spring 2009 dress, with a black sash.

She completes her look with Jimmy Choo Glenys Elaphe snakeskin sandals.

I love this silver strapless J. Mendel Pre -Fall 2009 dress on Lisa Edelstein. I have not been a fan of what she has worn for a while, so this is a welcome return to her best.

Emily Deschanel’s all black ensemble is made interesting with its touches of gold embellishments, trims and accents.

I wish Kelly Osbourne would smile more. I know it is all part of her image to be a moody, but a smile would have made me love her look a whole lot more.

Worst Dressed Award
I would wear this dress to work or to an interview, in fact I think I have a dress just like this. So I’m surprised Jennie Garth, with access to a lot of dresses, would pick this one.

OK she does not have the keys to Carolina Herrera’s closet like Renee Zellweger, but she can do better than this, even with her D list status.

Most Disappointing Award
Debra Messing is one of my faves, so imagine my deep disappointment to see her take to the red carpet last night in this extremely unflattering Donna Karan dress.

The steel grey colour is not so bad, but the fit is, and so is that thing on the front of her dress.

Why Debra? Why?

Most Unlikely To Add This Dress My Wish List Award
This has to be the most boring dress I have ever seen Reese Witherspoon wear.

So dull, so lifeless, so unlike Reese. I hope she’s saving better dresses for bigger occasions.

Most Uninspiring Award
Apart from the leopard print lining of her Dolce & Gabbana suit, I have no interest in what Katherine Heigl is wearing – although I do like the shoes.

For someone of her caliber, I would have expected more. Anne Hathaway looked so great in her suit this week, that this feels a bit copy-cat.

No Wow Factor Award
The colour was great, but I felt no wow factor from Chandra Wilson.

Worst Gown Award
There were a few gowns at this awards show last night, but Lisa Edelstein takes the prize for having the worst one.

Again it fails to flatter, and again I expected more.
