Who Wore Lanvin Better? Maggie Gyllenhaal or Bibiana Fernandez


Maggie Gyllenhaal wore a custom-made longer version of the Lanvin leopard print dress that was presented on the runway, when she arrived at the Golden Globe Awards back in January.

She certainly stood out from the other actresses, because we don’t often see leopard print at major awards shows, but she pulled her look off well.

Last month, Spanish actress Bibiana Fernandez wore the runway version of this dress, with a gold pair of Christian Louboutin multi buckle sandals.

Both women look fantastic, but given the choice, I would take the shorter version, and Bibi heels are fierce, so she wins for me.

12.01.09 Best Dressed

2009 Golden Globe Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
What more can be said about the stunning Olivia Wilde, that has not been said already?

She was one of the first to hit the red carpet in her exquisite Reem Acra Bridal Spring 2008 gown.

The gown had an jewel detail on the hip, and a gorgeous ruffled skirt.

Most Dramatic Award
Finally some Versace Spring 2009 on the red carpet.

January Jones was one of the few to bring drama to the red carpet wearing a Versace one-shouldered gown, with gold trim folds for added detail.

Biggest Hair Award
Drew Barrymore was stunning on the red carpet. Her hair was teased into a big style ala Marylin Monroe.

Her grey/blue John Galliano gown hung delicately off her shoulder, as she channeled Old Hollywood.

Best Gown Award
Maggie Gyllenhaal looked charming wearing a blue leopard print Lanvin Spring 2009 asymmetrical gown, which was presented on the runway in a much shorter style.

Best Strapless Gown Award
Jennifer Morrison’s electric blue Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2009 was beautifully complimented with her blue stone Lorraine Schwartz earrings, which were made specially for the dress.

Best Dressed Brit Award
Kate Winslet did us Brits proud, not only in the style stakes wearing this YSL strapless gown. But by also winning the Best Supporting Actress award for The Reader.

She sparkled in Chopard jewels.

The Turn Back Time Award
I don’t know how Demi Moore does it, but she must bottle it, and sell it.

Demi showed us why she is married to a much younger man, when she walked the red carpet wearing this cute pink Christian Dior Spring 2009 haltered gown.

The actress turned back the clock at least 20 years.

Best Black Award
Evan Rachel Wood’s Elie Saab Fall 2006 Couture black tiered gown, was by far the best black dress on the red carpet, as it shimmered as walked.

Again there is not a hit of Dita von Teese.

Best Asymmetrical Dress Award
I am so proud of America Ferrera, because she didn’t wear black, as I was expecting her to.

Instead she opted for this silver asymmetrical Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2009 dress, which was actually presented in black.

I love the gathered detail on the skirt, and the embellished detail on the neckline.

Most Vibrant/Best Red Award
Eva Longoria’s red Reem Acra gown, more than stood out against the red carpet. The actress who is just recovering from a cold, showed no signs of illness as she looked red hot.

She completed her look with a Daniel Swarovski silver clutch.

Most Improved Award
I really love this Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2009 gown on Rumer Willis.

Finally she has found a dress that compliments her hair.

Most Va Va Voom Award
I thought Hayden Panettiere looked outstanding, as she brought out the sex kitten wearing this Gianfranco Ferré Spring 2008 strapless eggplant gown.

This dress may look familiar, and that’s because it’s from the same collection as the dress Jennifer Morrison wore to the People’s Choice Awards.

Best Floral Award
Jenna Fischer looked ethereal in a multi floral print silk chiffon V-neck Zuhair Murad Resort 2009 gown with crystal embellished waist.

She completed her look with Chopard jewels.

Best Curves Award
Salma Hayek wore a figure-hugging Bottega Veneta gown, which shows us that my sexy senorita is back to her beautiful best.

She completes her look with Boucheron jewels.

If It Ain’t Broke Don’t Fix It/Another Strapless Gown Award
Kate Beckinsale is starting to become really predictable.

Yes she has a body to die for, and look fabulous in this J. Mendel gown. But I hope for her next red carpet appearance she wears something other than a figure-hugging strapless gown.

Best Over 40 Award
It not all about the youngsters. Kristin Scott Thomas more than held her own on the red carpet wearing a silk champagne Lanvin gown with sash neck-tie.

Good, But Not Great Award
Angelina Jolie’s shimmering Atelier Versace gown with a thigh-high split is not black – thankfully.

Best Couture Award
Anne Hathaway’s Armani Privé Fall 2006 gown was embroidered with Swarovski crystals. I wanted to be more wowed by her dress, but she does look absolutely stunning.

Best Necklace Award
Beyonce was not going to take any risks tonight, so she returned to her old friend Elie Saab who created this stunning strapless Spring 2008 Couture embroidered gown.

For those of you who watched the red carpet show on E!, you would have noticed that the dress was a little tight around the hips on B.

I really liked Beyonce necklace, which complimented the jeweled detail on the gown.

Best Colour Co-Ordination Award
I love how Christina Applegate complimented her yellow Roberto Cavalli strapless gown with yellow Lorraine Schwartz jewels and yellow diamond clutch.

Best Nude Award
Nude dress and gowns were very popular at this event, but for me Elizabeth Banks’ J. Mendel Spring 2009 ruffled gown, stood out the most.

CFDA Awards Red Carpet

If there was a picture to depict redemption, this would be it.

Since crossing the pond, Victoria’s red carpet moments have not been showing her at her best.

Off the red carpet, not many can match her in the style department, but let’s face it Victoria Beckham’s Costume Institute Gala make-up and hair were a mess, and not many liked her peek-a-boo Marc Jacobs dress on the Victoria Secrets pink carpet.

This one-shouldered Marc Jacobs mini dress on the other hand is stunning.

We have seen ruffles on many red carpets recently, but Marc Jacobs gives this dress a twist with heart-shaped ruffles.

Her hair slicked back makes a nice change, and her foundation, this time is a close match the rest of her skin-tone.

10 out of 10 Mrs B.

Fellow Brit Naomi Campbell, the face of YSL Fall 2008, wore a YSL Fall 2008 ensemble including a black sheer shirt and black sequined jodhpur-style, billowing pants which narrowed at the ankle.

Looks like she has managed to sort out her hair issues, with a brand new weave.

Ashley Olsen is wearing a mannish Calvin Klein Resort 2009 tux, but manages to still look very feminine.

You feel that this ensemble is very much a homage to the late Yves Saint Laurent and his Le Smoking Tuxedo.

Wow, Hilary Duff is dazzling in this purple sequined Michael Kors tank dress.

I love the updo, the length of the dress, the snake-skin shoes and the stunning earrings.

Faultless.

Eva Mendes may be wearing just a plain white Calvin Klein Resort 2008 dress, but I love the detail on the bodice, which narrows at the waist, giving her a sleek silhouette.

Her jewelery is by Van Cleef & Arpels.

Eva Longoria disappoints big style.

You can usually rely on Eva to look fantastic on the red carpet, so this is a shock.

Her hair looks a big ragged. Not at all in the manor of her usual sleek styles.

The JLo eye make-up is not the right shade for her skin-tone, nor does it compliment her dress, and think this was the intention.

The Diane von Furstenberg dress has overly enhanced her, giving her a very cheap Pamela Anderson type look.

Only her clutch and her shoes survived this disaster.

Maggie Gyllenhaal was on presenting duties for the night.

Like many of the A list fashion pack, she is wearing an ensemble that has not even been uploaded on to Style.com yet, such is it newness.

She is wearing a green-and-black sheer tunic, embellished with sequins, and silk pants from the Proenza Schouler Resort 2009 collection.

Paula Patton looks so pretty with her side-swept bangs, wearing a one-shouldered belted black white and grey Michael Kors Spring 2008 floral gown.

This look is a very clean, simple and dainty look for Mandy Moore, which I love, as it suits her so well.

The white piping on her Abaeté gown prevents it from looking stale.

Famke Janssen oozes glamour in this white David Meister Fall 2008 one sleeved jersey cocktail dress. She compliments her dress with silver accessories.

Kim Cattrall who presented Tom Ford with the Menswear Designer of the Year Award, wore a dress that would have been perfect for one of her Sex And The City premieres.

This asymmetric navy Monique Lhuillier Fall 2008 gown with an embellished shoulder, has got to be one of the best looks I have ever seen on her.

Anna Wintour is as elegant and sophisticated as ever, in beige lace sheath dress with gold sequined embellishments and her trademark bob.

Amy Poehler wore a navy poppy floral demi-sheer Marc Jacobs Spring 2008 dress. The low U-neckline adds a little sex appeal.

Lipstick Jungle actress Kim Raver is also wearing Marc Jacobs Spring 2008.

Her dress shows off Marc Jacobs eccentricities, with 4 different pieces of fabric put together to make this uniquely beautiful dress. This collection seems to work better off the runway.

Kim compliment her dress with nude pumps, and a bag also from the Spring 2008 collection.

Actress Lauren Hutton is divine in this silk slate grey Calvin Klein Spring 2008 jumpsuit.

For the first time, in a longtime, I am not offended by Lil Kim. In fact I quite like this keyhole purple hearted Marc Jacobs mini dress. Even the make-up is not too brash.

Has she turned a corner? I doubt it, but it will fun to see what she wears next.

Georgina Chapman stunning as ever in her own Marchesa Fall 2008 design.

Carolina Herrera is breath-taking in this ice white tuxedo she designed. Her white satin shoes compliment her white satin lapels.

Caroline received of the Geoffrey Bean Lifetime Achievement Award.

Diane von Furstenberg showed her respect by decided against the dress she originally wanted to wear to choose this navy vintage YSL tuxedo.

Donna Karan wore this red haltered top from her own collection.

Tory Burch the Accessory Designer Of The Year winner, wore a pink dress from her own collection.

Vera Wang is of course in her own Fall 2008 creation.
