Red Carpet Fashion Awards

This week Matthew Williamson hosted a party with Belvedere to launch their latest beverage “Pink Grapefruit”.

He invited his muse and BFF Sienna Miller who really disappointed me.

We are in the mist of a mini heatwave here in London. So I’m shocked that despite having her pick from the 35 Matthew Williamson’s Spring 2010 looks, she opted for a gold mini dress from the Fall 2010. And it wasn’t even one of the prettier pieces.

I like do like the belt she wore with the dress along with her Camilla Skovgaard cut-out platform wedge boots, but it’s summer. Let’s celebrate it.

The Brit actress has recently proved she can’t kick her Jude Law obsession, and here she also proves that she can’t kick her Prada Saffiano & Tessuto tote obsession either.

Sienna has been carrying this tote since summer 2009, and it looks like it will be her summer 2010 bag too.

Love the new bangs though.

Little Boots aka Victoria Hesketh also opted for Fall 2010 dress and ironically wore sunglasses with her Autumn bronze look.

Very uninspiring.

Victoria Hesketh aka Little Boots attended the 2009 GQ Men Of The Year Awards at the The Royal Opera House in London back in September wearing a Josh Goot Fall 2009 dress.

Her multi coloured dress was paired with black peep-toes, and an Alexander McQueen knuckle duster clutch, whilst her hair was styled into an elegant updo.

Keisha Buchanan wore the same dress to the Eun Jeong Fall 2010 presentation at Somerset House during London Fashion Week.

Her shorten dress was paired with black ankle boots.

I much prefer the longer version and Victoria’s shoe choice, so she wins for me.

It was a bitterly cold windy rainy night in London so Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy dress accordingly.

I was a bit disappointed Jenny didn’t give us something to wow about but our British stars did.

The X Factor contestants had a night off rehearsing to attend this event.

Lucie Jones looked adorable wearing a peachy Lipsy London bejewelled heart layer dress with leather jacket to toughen up her look, plus strappy sandals.

The X Factor judges said that they see Lucie as the next Avril Lavigne. I say please god NO WAY. One is plenty thank you.

Stacey Solomon wore leg shortening ankle boots with her black and white sequined dress which was worn off-the-shoulder.

Not at all crazy about the hair at all.

Big Brother winner Chantelle Houghton has been MIA for a very long while.

The reality star shocks me by looking pretty darn good wearing a black and white marble print gown.

Hair and make-up look very good also.

It looks likes she’s finally ditch her desires to become a WAG.

Little Boots smarten up her navy dress with a black blazer and carried an Alexander McQueen skull clasp clutch to add a bit of rock ‘n roll to her look.

The Saturdays looked like you typical girl band walking the red carpet arm in arm wearing colour co-ordinated looks.

Sporting longer locks which were swept to the side, Lily Allen was named “Woman of the Year” and the “2009 GQ Men Of The Year Awards” in London last night.

The face of Chanel “Coco Cocoon” bag collection walked the red carpet wearing a black sheer double strapped Chanel Resort 2010 gown.

Had Lily wondered what that extra piece of material was for on the front of her gown, she’ll wonder no more when she sees her picture in the papers this morning.

Many of you are horrified that Lily is the face of Chanel, and when she ruins a perfectly wonderful gown like this I have to agree.

Freida Pinto makes a vast improvement from her last outing, which lets face it wouldn’t have been too difficult.

I love that she took a risk with this Christopher Kane black layered dress, but the hair is a bit too prim and proper for such an edgy look.

The actress pairs her dress with Rupert Sanderson Khyber cutout sandals.

I would’ve much rather seen Freida wear something more colourful, but I think she just pulls this off.

Louise Redknapp also opted for a shortened Christopher Kane Fall 2009 asymmetrical dress.

Her mesh dress with black velvet trims was paired with YSL Trib Two heels and Bottega Veneta clutch.

Katherine Jenkins appears to love the Victoria Beckham dress collection as much as the designer herself, as this is the 2nd VB dress we’ve seen her wear.

This time she opted for violet Giral strapless shot silk dress.

I’m guessing Katherine likes this collection so much because the dresses caters for those with a larger bust.

When I tried on a strapless dress from Victoria’s Spring 2009 collection I could barely fill the bodice.

The only way I recognised that Gemma Arterton was wearing Louis Vuitton was by her clutch and heels.

For some reason the LV pizazz is lost on Gemma, and this ruffle collared jacket suddenly becomes quite ordinary.

I just feel like raising the collar, its not meant to be so flat.

Victoria Hesketh aka Little Boots was one of my favourites at this event wearing a Josh Goot multi coloured printed ruched mini dress.

The surprising feature is that the back of the dress and sleeves are plain black.

The singer completes her look with an Alexander McQueen knuckle duster clutch.

Pixie Lott opted for a bedazzling Collette Dinnigan Spring 2009 mini dress coved in diamanté embellishments.

Ankle boots and studded cuffs complete the look.

We first saw this dress worn by Taylor Swift.

Much like Leighton Meester’s MTV Movie Awards Emilio De La Morena dress, Alexandra Burke’s black and white mesh Emilio Pucci dress is quite cheeky.

I’m really scared to see what this dress looked like from the back.

A turtleneck? In yesterday’s soaring heat?

I feel hot just looking at Kelly Osbourne wearing this Jasmine di Milo’s Fall 2009 dress.

Dita von Teese will be full of admiration for Kelly Brook’s waist reducing dress.

The pink rubber printed Atsuko Kudo Couture dress appears to have a built in corset to give Kelly an hour glass shape.

I bet she gave off a sexy wiggle when she walked in this dress.

Even though Eva Mendes was the “big star” at this event I was more impressed by people like Little Boots and Kelly Brook for giving us something new.

Eva wore a stunning maroon shimmering gown.

The colour was sublime on her, but the wow factor was missing. Eva can do this kind of look in her sleep.

Daisy Lowe opted for a space-aged look, which she paired down with black pumps.

Rachel Stevens hair and make-up is quite outstanding. I love the transformation maybe the newlywed decided to spice up her image.

Her LND with a voluminous skirt is oh so cute.

Tamara Ecclestone wore a striking Preen black and white lightening-print bandage-style dress paired with black ankle boots and a matching clutch.

Elizabeth Hurley’s strapless but dress is cute enough, but why I’m I so bored?

GLSEN’s 2009 LA Respect Awards kick-off party, LA

We have yet another smile from Ginnifer Goodwin.  Maybe it’s because she knows she looks so cute wearing a Brian Reyes Dolman polo blouse dress from the Spring 2009 collection.

I love the Clark Kent hairstyle.

The Boathouse, London

UK singer Little Boots wore a strapless Basso & Brooke Resort 2010 dress when she performed at the Boathouse in London this week.

This gorgeously colourful dress with fold and structured details, has a black background unlike many of the other pieces from this collection which have a white background giving the pieces a cloudy rainbow sky feel to them.

Planet Hollywood, New York

Alexis Bledel made an appearance at Planet Hollywood in New York to promote her new movie “Post Grad”.

The actress opted for a Kimberly Ovitz Jacob jersey dress, which unfortunately revealed her pale bra.

Wear a black bra under a black dress. It’s simple mathematics.

H&M ankle boots were added to give her look a bit of an edge.

Post Grad Screening And Party, LA

She faired much better at the LA screening wearing a navy Sachin and Babi for Ankasa Resort 2010 draped dress embellished with black sequins.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

We don’t see Renee Zellweger for months and now she’s popping up everywhere promoting her latest movie.

The actress arrive at Letterman wearing an electric blue strapless dress with silver Louboutin heels.

I’ll take a wild guess that it’s by Carolina Herrera.

I wanted to love this because of the vibrant colour, but those fold details on the skirt really don’t work for me, especially on the long shot.

Her frizzy hair doesn’t appeal either.

Charlotte Ronson and JCPenney Celebrate “I Heart Ronson” Line, New York

Mischa Barton continues to party despite her recent troubles.

The actress – haven’t called her that in a long while – wore a black tank top with a colourful floral Topshop skirt.

To add more colour into the mix she paired her look with a hot pink twisted rope necklace her favourite Alexander McQueen pink strapped open-toe booties.

Hilary Duff adds a tribal print scarf to add interest to her t-shirt and leggings look.

Her look was complete with an Alexander McQueen Faithfull leather glove clutch.

When I see Sophia Bush at this event, all I can think of is ‘Why was she not invited to the InStyle Magazine’s Summer Soiree?’

That stylish event was right up her street.

The look is very shopping at The Grove.  For once Sophia is not doing it for me.

Thandie Newton gets another gold star this time for wearing this multi-coloured Matthew Williamson Resort 2010 dress.

Her look is almost a head-to-toe carbon copy of the runway look, but Thandie opted for a skinny gold studded belt instead of the wider runway belt, and she has a smaller bejeweled clutch.

Nude cut-away ankle boots complete this stunning look.

Best Dressed of the Week is going to be very crowded with Thandie and Emma’s looks.

Roisin Murphy finally does one of the silk voluminous shoulder pieces from the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 collection justice.

I’m quite surprised her look is so close to the runway version, as she usually mixes things up a bit.

Her many accessories included bejeweled belt, gold necklace and large copper sequined bag which she carried as a clutch.

My only disappointment are those black patent heels.  Too stale for this kind of look.

Little Boots arrived wearing the same D&G silk brocade jacket with leggings, which Emma Watson wore in her editorial for Elle UK.

Little Boots is quiet daring with her style choices, so I’m surprised she didn’t copy the runway look.

After her disappointing looks at Haute Couture Fashion Week, Dasha Zhukova gets back to her stunning best wearing a cream Azzedine Alaia dress with a frou-frou skirt and a matching waist belt.

Her dress is gorgeous which she complements with a black and white print cropped jacket and Azzedine Alaia shell decorated heels.

After giving birth to her first child a few months ago Tess Daly has already snapped back to her perfect best.

The TV presenter showed off her stunning pins in this gold See by Chloé mini dress with a tiered bodice, which was folded in the skirt to add subtle volume.

Tess accessorized with some very sexy Jimmy Choo Billie Lizard-print sandals and mirrored clutch.

Meg Matthews continues to channel a very demure look. The wild rock chick seems to be a thing of the past.

Meg is wearing the black version of the same Antonio Berardi tweed crew neck dress she wore to the “Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince” UK Premiere.

Poppy Delevigne looks super sexy wearing a long sleeved black embellished mini dress with a pair of Topshop frill sandals.

Lily Collins has walked many red carpets, but I’m still yet to see her do anything noteworthy.

Phil Collins’ daughter is supposed to be an actress but I couldn’t name a single film or TV show she has been in.

Lily wore a lace Topshop lace bodycon dress with some Topshop black and gold sandals which very much look like Louis Vuitton Spicy sandals.

Gold jewelery and a black patent clutch completed the look.

Erin O’Connor wore a plunging jade-green Donna Karan Grecian style dress.

The shapeless dress should drown Erin’s slender frame, but the drapes and her elegant stature prevent that.

Natalie Imbruglia red gown is gorgeous but the Chanel black and white bag is so heavy it feels like a slap in the face.

A black clutch would have been much more subtle.

Olivia Palmero wore a champagne coloured dress with a dazzlingly Zara clutch, Topshop leather disc jacket, and Topshop velcro strapped heels.

Either these girls love Topshop as much as I do, or the retailer sponsored this event.
