Runway To 2010 Oscars – Maggie Gyllenhaal In Dries von Noten

Fabulous Florals Award
I totally expected Maggie Gyllenhaal to give us something interesting on the red carpet at the 2010 Oscars, and she didn’t disappoint.

The nominated actress wore a Dries van Noten strapless dress which was made from the same print we saw in the recent Fall 2010 presentation.

The draped evening dress with ruffle in the back was hand painted in bright blue brush strokes which fading out to white at the hem.

I love the dress, the pink lips and her swept back into an elegant chignon.

Her look was paired with Fred Leighton jewels.

Runway To 2010 Film Independent Spirit Awards – Maggie Gyllenhaal In Lanvin

Maverick Award
Maggie Gyllenhaal arrived at the 2010 Film Independent Spirit Awards wearing Lanvin.

Maggie doesn’t conform to red carpet rules, she makes them up as she goes along.

As much as it’s my pet peeve to wear a dress without support, it would be impossible to wear a bra with this Lanvin Spring 2010 asymmetrical dress.

It would however be possible to wear this dress without tights. I guess with the thigh-high split Maggie didn’t want to feel too exposed, but then why wear the dress?

Despite that Maggie does look great, but I still feel that this Spring 2010 Lanvin collection always looks better on the runway than the red carpet.

It always looks so flat on the red carpet.

More From The Golden Globes Red Carpet

Penelope Cruz wore a Armani Privé Spring 2005 black gown with a mermaid tail.

I like the lace the detail around the bust a shoulder line but I’m a little bored by Penelope in black again.

I feel that she’s trying to channel her Spanish roots here but it somehow looks a little messy.

Glenn Close sparkled in this black Oscar de la Renta floor length Fall 2009 dress.

I just feel it isn’t special enough for the Globes.

The bust line of the dress and the bare shoulders make her arms look too muscular.

Rose Byrne wore a Lanvin Pre-Fall 2010 dress in a deep purple with a bow detail at the waist.

I’m glad Rose decided to wear the dress in this colour but I apart from that I’m left feeling a little bored.

Kate Hudson walked the red carpet in a Marchesa Bridal Spring 2010 gown with sculptured band bodice and bottom flared skirt.

I just can’t make you my mind about this. Part of me is thinking “what the hell?” and the other part doesn’t mind it so much.

I’ve never really got why stars wear bridal looks on the red carpet but I’m actually quite drawn to the sculpting on the dress.

The shoes are way too heavy though.

Jaime Pressly is shimmering in this Kevan Hall Spring 2010 dress with a split up one side.

I prefer this dress on the model as I feel that it has more of an impact against brunette hair.

I don’t think the champagne coloured clutch compliments this dress at all.

Jenna Fischer wore a dress from Halston’s Spring 2010 collection.

I like it but I don’t love it. I just can’t see how this dress is event appropriate. This is a star’s chance to shine and this dress is never going to deliver that moment.

2010 National Board Of Review Of Motion Pictures Awards Gala

Anna Kendrick looks gorgeous wearing a tiered strapless organza Paule Ka dress with a gathered detail at the hip.

As much as I love the dress and her in the dress from the hem up, I can’t help but wish she saved this for sunny LA red carpet event.

It looks like Carey Mulligan may become an ‘unofficial’ Prada brand ambassador after all.

The British actress wore a black Prada dress with a knotted shoulder detail, paired with black satin beaded rosette heels from the Prada Resort 2010 collection.

That suede clutch seems like an odd choice, but I like it.

Maggie Gyllenhaal is probably the only one who can wear a Lanvin dress with ankle boots and get away with it, such is her quirky sense of style.

I adore the rich bordeaux colour of her draped Lanvin dress with hook-eye closure at collarbone.

A hint of rouge on the lips is all the accessory she needed.

Vera Farmiga dazzled in a Dolce & Gabbana black rouched cocktail dress with sequin detail.

“An Education” New York Premiere

Carey Mulligan has become SO interesting to watch on the red carpet lately as she’s fearless.

Many newcomers may have picked something safe for a big premiere, but Carey thought stuff that I’m going to wear this gladiatorial Prada Fall 2009 studded dress and steal the headlines.

And she did.

Only the somewhat safe pieces have been worn from this collection, so I really admire Carey as she really went for it.

Many will mock her and I’m sure many will hate this look, but I applaud the British actress.

You would’ve expected Maggie Gyllenhaal to have stood out at this premiere being the bigger star.

But I guess since she isn’t actually in this movie and was only there to support her husband Peter Sarsgaard last night, she didn’t want to outshine the Carey on her big night.

Maggie opted for a sleek strapless black Prada jumpsuit and a large black clutch.

Very simple, yet very elegant.

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.
