Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Penelope Cruz was the first to wear this Stella McCartney Fall 2011 dress back in May to promote ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ at a photocall during the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.

The sexy starlet also gave a debut to the Casadei pump which then went on to be Cameron Diaz’ favourite choice of footwear.

British TV presenter Louise Redknapp wore the same dress to the GQ Man of the Year awards a few weeks ago.

She paired her dress with a chunky watch and black platform heels.

Penelope looks perfectly groomed whilst Louise looks like she literally just threw the dress on without much care or effort.

Pen wins for me.

Maria Sharapova sizzled on the red carpet when she chose this cherry red Alexander McQueen dress to attend the WTA Tour Pre-Wimbledon Party back in June.

The tennis star looked incredible in the slit-shoulder ‘Fin’ mini dress, which she paired with a number of accessories which included a McQueen clutch with intricate gold hardware and Burberry Prorsum leather ankle booties.

Her jewelry included Lara Bohinc ‘Tatjana’ choker and matching cuff, gold earrings with black stones and an oversized cocktail ring with a red stone.

She finished her look by wearing her hair pulled back into a casual up-do and accentuating her eyes.

Louise Redknapp wore the same dress to attend David Walliams’ 40th birthday party at Scott’s restaurant in London this last month.

The TV presenter opted for simple accessories including a plain leather black clutch and two-tone nude and black heels.

She added a pretty pair of gold and red earrings to her look and kept her makeup light.

Maria’s getting my vote on this one. I love her edgier styling as opposed to the more classic take Louise went for.

Although I agree with some of your earlier comments that Maria had on one too many accessories, there’s no denying how amazing they look.

Louise Redknapp showed off her summer tan on the red carpet at the 2011 GQ Men Of The Year Awards in London tonight.

Her gorgeous blue Stella McCartney Fall 2011 dress hugged her in all the right places, but she appears to be too broad for this look.

The dress has an athletic style top half with a velvet lower half with black side panels.

The TV presenter accessorized with simple black heels and an embellished Bottega Veneta clutch. She also wore a chic timepiece and diamond cocktail rings.

Lazy hair completed Louise’s look.

You may recognize this dress as it has already been worn by Penelope Cruz to the Cannes Film Festival “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” Photocall.

David Walliams gathered his closest friends to celebrate his 40th birthday at Scott’s Restaurant in Mayfair London this weekend.

Louise Redknapp was one of the many stars who wished David a happy birthday at the seafood eatery.

The TV presenter wore a cherry red Alexander McQueen slit shoulder fin mini dress.

This dramatically tailored dress with slashed shoulders and a thigh-skimming skater skirt was paired with a black clutch and two-tone pumps.

Louise pulled her hair back into a tight ponytail and added some complementary gold and red stone earrings.

Maria Sharapova aka McQueen’s biggest fan after Anna Paquin, wore this dress earlier this summer.

Fan Bing Bing attended the Louis Vuitton store opening in Zhengzhou City, China back in January wearing a look from the label’s Spring 2011 collection.

She paired the bold skirt and top combo with a black patent bag and matching Miu Miu heels.

I love the way Fan styled this look, opting to use the cummerbund as a high-waisted belt and creating a peplum effect. It’s an incredibly chic but fun look, and I adore her soft wavy hairstyle.

Louise Redknapp wore the same look on a recent night out to attend a charity dinner hosted by Nobu Berkeley in Mayfair, London to benefit the Japan Disaster Appeal.

Ditching the maroon cummerbund, Louise chose to loosely tuck her top into the skirt and paired the outfit with a matching clutch and Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ patent leather heels. She wore her hair down and kept her makeup minimal.

I like this look on Louise but agree with some of your comments that the skirt part of her outfit is too tight and going a size up would have been more flattering.

Based on styling and accessory choices, my vote is going to Fan. Had Louise worn a looser skirt she may stood a chance against Fan.
