Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Vogue Australia 50th Anniversary Dinner, Syndey

Unfortunately we didn’t get any dramatic looks, no picks from our Red Carpet Wish lists and no couture from Cate Blanchett at this event, but regardless it’s always a treat to see her on the red carpet.

She looks outstanding wearing a burnt orange long sleeved vintage Ossie Clark gown with an ivory necklace.

“A Streetcar Named Desire” Press Night, London

Rachel Weisz wore an animal print Isabel Marant Fall 2009 sheer with black peep-toes accented with a gold floral detail.

Although I’m not crazy about the detail on her shoes, I adore her dress, even though it’s showing us her bra.

Isabel Marant make such fabulous pieces.  I hope we see more celebrities wearing their pieces in future.

Out & About, Berlin

Even when she’s out shopping in Berlin, Diane Kruger is still incredibly stylish.

The German actress wore a Stella McCartney Resort 2010 ensemble which included a yellow tank top she wore off-the-shoulder, with a blue striped tulip skirt.

She added flats and a white Chanel quilted bag to complete her ‘off-duty’ look.

I adore her skirt. Another piece added to my never-ending wish list.

X-Games “Red Bull Toasted” Honors Action Sports Icon Travis Pastrana, LA

A LBD as short and tight as this can go so wrong, but I think Audrina Patridge looks amazing in this Michelle Mason Spring 2009 dress.

She’s starting to come into her own now that she’s no longer in Lauren’s shadow.

“Taking Woodstock” New York Premiere

With her long wavy hair falling down her shoulders, Claire Danes wore a blue silk Sonia Rykiel Resort 2010 wrap dress with delicate ruffles.

Her dress is longer than the runway version, which I can’t say I’m surprised about considering we’re talking about Claire Danes.

In keeping with her usual simple style, she only added a platinum bracelet and strappy heels to complete her look.

Lynn Collins has finally been weened off wearing top hats to every red carpet appearance, but she’s replaced that look with a headband.

Wearing a Kova & T green mini dress and nude Brian Atwood Katie Bis sandals I would say her look was great had it not been for the over excessive bronzing.

Dolce & Gabbana: The Make Up Selfridges Launch, London

So now all those Scarlett Johansson posters in Selfridges yesterday make sense, they were prepping for Scarlett’s Dolce & Gabbana make-up launch.

The actress looked very sophisticated and refined in her Dolce & Gabbana ensemble. I especially love her floral flutter sleeve blouse and orange sorbet peep-toes, but I’m still struggling with the hair.

I do usually love Scarlett wearing bold red lips, but I don’t think it quite works with her ensemble.

“JLo for Yamamay” Collection Launch, Rome

Jennifer Lopez was in Rome yesterday to promote her new underwear collection.

The actress wore an ivory chiffon gown with an embellished neckline and a matching Alaia waist belt.

She carried a glittering silver Swarovski clutch which sparkled like her jeweled T-bar sandals.

Her locks were have been lighten with some blonde streaks which I’m not particularly fond of.

How many of you feel like you have seen this look many times before?

Mont Blanc, Austria

Dita von Teese wore a traditional Austrian dirndl while at the Mont Blanc boutique in Salzburg.

It would’ve been great if she’d changed her hairstyle just this once to really get into the spirit of things.

2009 Salzburg Festival – ‘Welcome to Nowhere’ Premiere, Austria

This is the Dita von Teese we’re most used to seeing, looking glamorous wearing a Moschino cream tiered plisse chiffon gown.

AMC Cocktail Reception, LA

Christina Hendricks strikes a stunning pose wearing a emerald Catherine Malandrino pleated empire waist dress with ruffle sleeves.

Gold accessories complete this look.

January Jones wore an interesting sheer Sretsis dress with two diamante bow appliqués to cover her modesty.

I love her hairstyle. Tres chic.

It’s been a while since we last saw Rachel Bilson on the red carpet, and I’m sure you have missed her like I have.

The actress opted for a 3 piece 3.1 Phillip Lim Resort 2010 look consisting of a gold liquid lamé blazer and matching harem shorts with a black pleated sleeveless top.

I was loving this look including her Longchamp clutch until I panned down to the white pumps.

Leona Lewis opted to cover up her curves by wearing a gorgeous flowing 3.1 Phillip Lim Pre-Fall 2009 maxi dress with a tiered asymmetrical skirt and floating sleeves.

Again she impresses me with how stunning she looks.

Her look was complete with black studded strappy sandals.

Eve looked hot wearing a 3.1 Phillip Lim Resort 2010 sheath dress with all-over metallic gold embroidery detail.

Her gold bangles plus her black clutch with a gold trim complemented her dress.

I was surprised that Shenae Grimes was at this event, but that just goes to show that she’s moving up in the world of celebrity fashionista’s.

Hopefully this will be the start of better choices on the red carpet.

She wore one of my favourite pieces from the 3.1 Phillip Lim Resort 2010 collection.

I’m not sure if it’s a dress or a cropped polka dotted top with a nude skirt draping from the hips, but she looks amazing wearing it.

Nude peep-toe pumps and swept back hair completed this look.

Is it me, or is Molly Sims looking younger these days?

The model/actress looked stunning keeping her look simple wearing an off-white diamond cut 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2009 dress with a gold embellished neckline.

Her look was completed with a pair of Christian Louboutin ‘Deva’ shoe boots.

Kristen Bell’s dress has a lot going on with the shimmering graphite leather striped mini ra-ra skirt, plus navy sleeveless asymmetrical draped trompe-l’oeil top with the twisted detail.

It’s a lot to take in all at once, but Kristen just manages to pull it off.

We have seen this style of dress on Michelle Williams a few weeks ago.  At the time I thought it was a Resort 2010 preview, but it now looks to be a Spring 2010 preview.

Maggie Q wore a similar style to Kristin with her single sleeve asymmetrical draped trompe-l’oeil dress, but her mustard version was way sexier.

This dress would’ve worked better for me if it weren’t for the cream silk panel.

Jewel broke all the rules by arriving at the Lim event wearing a black and cream strapless Etro mini.

I’ll excuse the flats as she’s recovering from a foot injury.

Lynn Collins just gets worst and worst for me.

When she first stepped onto the red carpet a few months ago I thought we found a new red carpet golden girl, but her fascination with top hats is just becoming ridiculous.

I hope she has a word with herself or her stylist very soon.

Ad Between Posts

Zooey Deschanel’s style can usually be described as quirky, but on this occasion she opted for a very grown up look.

She was definitely the belle of the ball wearing a Naeem Khan Resort 2010 navy dress embellished with silver details on the skirt.

Zooey wouldn’t be Zooey without wearing something unexpected, so she added baby blue Louboutin pumps to spice up her look.

I love the beehive and everything else about her look, but her shoulders were hunched in nearly every photo.

Big sis Emily Deschanel was there to support her young sister, opting for an even more grown up look, but she didn’t look dowdy.

Emily looked gorgeous wearing a sexy Tadashi Shoji Fall 2009 LBD with voluminous sleeves. Black heels and gold bracelets completed the look whilst she wore her hair pulled back.

Minka Kelly is like a refreshing breeze on a hot sunny day as she walks the red carpet in a blue floaty Christian Dior Spring 2009 chiffon dress which is covered in orange polka dots.

Her look is complete with the same white heels from the runway, but opts out of wearing the studded white belt.

Isabel Lucas took a break from promoting her “Transformers” movie to attend this premiere.

The Australian actress wore a gorgeous – despite her hair – wearing an eggplant Giambattista Valli ensemble including a luscious velvet sleeveless top and a tight fitting ruched skirt.

A silver VBH clutch and silver heels complete her look.

Even though her part in the “Transformers” movie is very small, Isabel has already caught the eye of Uncle Karl, as it has been reported that she will be a special guest at Chanel’s Haute Couture Fall 2009 show in Paris next month.

Lynn Collins was one of my favourite red carpet newcomers, but it appears that since she is no longer promoting her “Wolverine” movie her style has taken a bit of a nose-dive.

I’m all for a grungy rock chic look, but this just looks sloppy to me even with the sequined biker jacket.

I LOVE Christina Hendricks. Everything about her is admirable, but I’m getting hot flushes looking at her in her plunging black gown.  It’s like 100 degrees outside.

Even though I’m not a fan of Shenae Grimes’ floral print wrap dress, she does inject some much needed colour to this red carpet.

This look feel more like shopping for groceries than a red carpet premiere.

Rachel Boston opted for an ethereal white chiffon Jenny Packham gown. Which may seem much for the occasion, but she looks radiant.

Excuse me whilst I pick my chin off the floor.

I’ve waited my whole lifetime for Jennifer Aniston to wow me, and she does wearing this Prada Spring 2009 silver metallic crushed dress.

What I love about this look the most is the confidence she exudes. It’s oozing from every pore and for me that’s more captivating than the colour and the cut.

Jen could have gone for the safer runway dress as it’s in her favourite colour – Black, but she not only opted for the silver dress, but a shorten silver dress plus she didn’t press it like Nicole Kidman did.

This may not sit well with Jennifer Aniston’s loyal fans as this is such a huge departure from her usual style, but I love it.

Oh and I hate to be crude, but where did those twins sprout from?

This is the first time in a long time that Amber Valletta has proved her supermodel status.

She hasn’t impressed me much on her last few outings, but she works it out in this maroon sequined Proenza Schouler 2009 Pre-Fall dress.

I love the colour the cut-outs in the shoulders, and the contrast exposed zipper at the back.

She completed her look with her hair tied back with sweeping bangs, whilst wearing black patent Brian Atwood “Maniac” pumps and carrying a feathered Raven Kauffman Couture clutch.

Like Jennifer Aniston, I would have bet on Jodie Foster picking the black runway version of this Giorgio Armani Fall 2009 dress. But instead she wore a grey satin, shadow-print version with complementary strappy sandals and clutch.

Her dress is exquisite with the origami folds on the bodice, and the daring low cut.

I love that these women are stepping out of their comfort-zones at this event.

Chelsea Handler wore a two-tone Lanvin Spring 2009 dress, with satin champagne strappy heels.

We’re not used to seeing Chelsea this polished and spectacular, but she pulls this look off with great aplomb.

I hope she keeps up this sophisticated style of dressing, as I could really warm to her.

Mary McCormack tried to bring this grey strapless Yves Saint Laurent Spring 2008 dress up-to-date with a cage belt and YSL Trib Two’s.

It’s a nice look, but we’ve seen this dress so many, many, many times before.

Michelle Trachtenberg wore a Reem Acra knee-length dress covered in gold sequined leaf details and a contrasting waist band.

Her dress which she wears with black open-toes heels is nice enough, but it feels a bit too old for her.

Jenny McCartney looked out-friggin-standing wearing this crisp white pant suit.

Even though she has been dressing so sophisticatedly for a while now, I’m still always surprised at her fabulous looks.

Hair, make-up earrings, clutch, everything is perfect. My only bug-bear are her extremely long pants. I hate the thought of them picking up dirty as they drag on the floor.

Of all these looks Dania Ramirez’ is the one I would definitely purchase to go shopping at the mall on a sunny day. I love this summery look with the white tube top, floral tulip skirt and purple accessories, but it’s feels too casual for the red carpet.

Terri Seymour showed off that enivalbe figure wearing a coral RM by Roland Mouret Fluro dress with pleated neckline knee-length dress, paired with black patent pumps.

Selena Gomez wore a simple black H&M tank dress, with equally simple black pumps.

Elizabeth Banks set the bar really high for her red carpet looks during Cannes Film Festival, but I’m not really enjoying this look on her at all.

Her sparkling MaxMara dress is nice enough, but I have never been a fan of a sheer yoke. Reminds me too much of ice-skaters.

The actress completed her look with satin black pumps and a matching clutch.

Keke Palmer wore a printed maxi dress, which she accessorized with peacock earrings.

I really don’t like this dress as too much going on with the clashing prints plus those earrings are just hideous and so unnecessary.

Lynn Collins’ invite must have said fancy dress.

Christina Hendricks has such a stunning figure, and she embraces colour in many of her looks.

With that said I can’t help but be really disappointed with her all black, all boring look at this event, when so many women really step it up a notch.

Cartier / Art of Elysium LOVE Bracelet Event, New York

Eva Mendes combines timeless chic with modern elegance.

She looked sophisticated wearing a Michael Kors folded shift dress, with a gorgeous metallic fabric.

Her dress was paired with ultra-high black Casadei platform heels and a selection of the sponsors jewelery.

Children Uniting Nations 4th Annual National Conference Gala Dinner, Washington

Gabrielle Union wore a silk chiffon strapless BCBG raspberry gown with a bejeweled detail on the empire waist.

The colour is stunning against her skin. She looks as beautiful as ever.

Launch of the Exclusive Deluxe Version of The E.N.D, New York

Fergie wore a taupe Max Azria sateen origami strapless dress, with black Walter Steiger heels.

What I love here is her corset-like belt, which give the dress a edgier look.

Fergie is never boring on the red carpet, and I love her for that.

Camilla And Marc Dinner

WOOOHoooo, we have a smile.

Many of you have noted that Ginnifer Goodwin never smiles. We get the odd smirk from time to time, but this is a full on grin.

The host of this dinner, wore a white one-shouldered white mini with black open-toe Mechante of London ankle boots.

It’s a shame she didn’t have enough time to press her dress though.

I’ve been a great admirer of Lynn Collins style since she burst onto the scene. I love her Camilla & Marc LBD, with the lace insert and tiered skirt, but the hair and make-up really let her down.

Also I’m tiring of booties with everything.

Catherine Malandrino Boutique Launch At Harrods, London

Catherine Malandrino was in London to launch her new boutique within Harrods departments store. The designer epitomizes everyday chic wearing a gorgeous green pleated empire waist dress from her own collection.

This dress is captivating with its ruffled sleeves. It’s the perfect day to night dress.

Elizabeth Hurley opted for a Catherine Malandrino black strapless dress with multi coloured embroidered rosettes at bust and multicolored banding at the waist.

I wouldn’t have had Liz down as a Malandrino girl as she is so high maintenance, but she looks great in this dress.
