Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Tyra Banks toned down from last years event where she was easily one of the worst dress, to one of the Best Dressed of this event – which wasn’t that much of a challenge.

The TV presenter arrived on the red carpet wearing a coral one-shoulder Rachel Roy Resort 2010 dress, with beige Manolo Blahnik heels and a Sang A nude clutch.

I’m loving the natural look she’s giving us these days, it’s so refreshing and it totally suits her.

She was able strike the right balance of elegance & sophistication.

Ashley Jones wore a flowing backless Matthew Williamson for H&M Summer 2009 floral gown.

Some of you may have this dress in your closets if you were lucky enough to buy this gown before it sold out.

I love the tiered ruffled skirt and the neutral accessories she paired with her gown.

Portia de Rossi’s navy off-the-shoulder Monique Lhullier Resort 2010 gown is absolutely stunning in its simplicity.

My only disappointment is that opted for thong sandals to complete her Grecian look.

She’s married to Ellen DeGeneres not Tom Cruise, surely Ellen wouldn’t object to her wearing heels.

I much prefer Heather Tom’s choice of this navy Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2009 fringed dress, as I feel the burnt orange colour wouldn’t have been flattering to her colouring.

The dress is exquisite which she pairs with Christian Dior heels.

Lara Spencer wore a black and white asymmetrical ruffled gown accented with a red belt.

Her gown was a bold choice and will no doubt have you on the fence, but I was crushing on her Valentino Couture red patent bow peep-toes which was on my favourites list last week.

Lori Loughlin elegantly posed on the red carpet wearing a peachy satin asymmetrical Enzoani gown with embellished details on the shoulder and hip.

Gold tone accessories including Loree Rodkin jewels, Renee Caovilla heels, and Bottega Venetta purse completed her look.

Jennie Garth channeled old Hollywood with her wavy ‘do and vibrant orange Issa gown accented with a sparkling brooch.

She sparkled with silver accessories.

Kirsten Storms sported a wavy ‘do as she walked the red carpet wearing a Tadashi Shoji navy silk chiffon one shoulder gown with white silk organza rosette strap.

Her look was paired with a navy Kotur clutch.

Rachael Ray was one of the winners of the night.

She walked the red carpet wearing a plum draped halter dress with a gold coil neckline.  She was one of the few to opt out of wearing a gown.

Susan Lucci is very much the Queen of daytime soaps.

The Queen shone brightly as she sparkled in a coral embellished halter neck Zuhair Murad gown.

Gina Tognoni looked sensational in this raspberry bow tied gown with a ruffled cascading down the front of her gown.

Like the dress, but I’m not crazy the hair.

Marcy Rylan opted for the mothers-to-be favourite red carpet Peas In A Pod gown.

This rose gown with a rosette detail on the shoulder, was also worn by Kimora Lee Simmons.

Kristen Alfonso attracted me with her stunning electric blue one-shouldered gown.

The embellished neckline is also exquisite.

Nadia Bjorlin was oozing sexy glamour wearing a backless gown, with a gold embellished detail draping from her neck and down her back.

Taylor Spreitler’s fuschia pink one-shouldered gown was one of my favourites.

It’s’ simple, colourful and she didn’t over accessorize her look.

Michelle Stafford strapless floral black and white gown is beautiful.

I love any dress that give a woman this stunning Jessica Rabbit/mermaid silhouette.

Stacy Haiduk was the joker of the night as she carried a cat purse on the red carpet.

When I saw Emily Deschanel on red carpet wearing this Gustavo Cadile strapless gown I instantly recognised it, because I tried it on during New York Fashion Week, when I visited the designer at his Manhattan studio.

The outstanding rose tulle gown is from Gustavo Cadile’s Fall 2009 collection. I adore the tiered skirt which make it feel like a princess gown.

I was surprised that Emily wore a black knotted belt with the dress, because the pink bejeweled ribbon was perfect. But either way it works.

I love that she didn’t add too many jewels, or even carry a clutch as this dress stands alone.

I’m so honoured to have tried on this gown, and I can imagine the butterflies she had when she put on this gown.

Kate Walsh showed off her very sassy side in a baby blue Missoni dress, with a thigh high split.

For some reason I’m more in love with her hair. Those curls are so cute and look so bouncy.

Jennifer Love Hewitt arrived with her actor boyfriend Jamie Kennedy looking exquisite wearing a nude gown. She was radiating beauty. I’ve never been so taken by her.

This gown with a risqué plunging neckline more than makes up for the previous secretary chic look.

I don’t know why but I was totally captivated by Spanish actress Marta Torne.

Her porcelain skin, the sexy silhouette of her slate grey strapless ruched bodice gown, and those bold red lips are all perfect. Not a single fault can I find.

Such a quiet elegant beauty, I adore her here.

Lori Loughlin looks amazing again. This time wearing a navy blue haltered gown, with an embellished neckline.

Her look was complete with a gold box clutch which complemented the gold detail on her gown.

Kim Kardashian for me the worst dressed at this event. She did a complete 180 from her previous looks.

I love her hair and make-up, but the Ports 1961 strapless gown is way too gaudy for my liking. The runway version wouldn’t have suited her either.

This is a bit of a step back imo.

Kim Kardashian’s first look at this festival was a black Lela Rose sleeveless dress with a contrast grosgrain belt and a disc hem.

Her sophisticated look was paired with black Jil Sander heels.

She showed off her womanly curves in an ultra-feminine one-shouldered dusky pink dress for her second look. Nude Louboutin’s completed my favourite look of the three.

Kim brought out the sunshine wearing a flirty Ina Soltani strapless yellow dress with a ruffled bodice, which she also wore with nude Louboutin’s.

You will notice in all of these looks that Kim doesn’t wear any accessories, she shines on her own.  I’m glad to see her return to a more respectable style of dressing after a slight detour to tackyville.

Emily Deschanel attended a photocall  “Bones” wearing a red and white asymmetrical print loose fitting summer dress.

You’ll notice that she’s wearing the same heels which Stella McCartney wore last week in nude.

I love this dress, as it very much reminds me of a vintage dress I have in my closet.

Kate Walsh was there to promote “Private Practice” and she looked radiant, as she posed for photographers, in a light-blue mini dress. The look was completed with nude Christian Louboutin strappy sandals.

Lori Loughlin was there to promote the hit TV series “90210″. She glowed in the sunshine wearing an Alexander McQueen fuschia pink asymmetrical dress.

With the wrong accessories this look could have come off tacky, but Lori wore nude peep-toes and simple silvers accessories.

Jennifer Love Hewitt was promoting “Ghost Whisperer” and opted for a very formal secretary type of look, which goes against the summery looks everyone else was wearing at this event, so this is my least favourite look.

Christian Louboutin Differa sandals complete the look and make their 100 appearance on the red carpet.
