Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Maggie Gyllenhaal is in London tonight for the premiere of her new movie “Nanny McPhee And The Big Bang”.

The last time we saw Maggie on the red carpet she dazzled us at the Oscars wearing a strong print.

This time she dazzle again even though her look was more subtle wearing a black Vionnet Pre-Fall 2010 dress.

Despite not being a lover of black dresses, this one sleeve dress is really interesting as the opposite side of the dress has a cream pleated panel.

I expected something wild and bright from Maggie, but I got chic, elegant and sophisticated.

BDOTW for me.

LOVE this look.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
