Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Russian tennis ace Maria Sharapova was flying the flag for British fashion at the WTA Tour Pre-Wimbledon Party, which was held at The Roof Gardens in London last night.

That’s because she opted to wear head-to-toe Alexander McQueen & Burberry Prorsum.

Her cherry red Alexander McQueen slit shoulder fin mini dress was paired with a black satin McQueen gold hardware clutch and black Burberry Prorsum booties.

Maria completed her look with Lara Bohinc jewels which included a Tatijana Choker.

I love the addition of the choker to the dress.

I wouldn’t have added the booties, but she looks good in them.

The only thing I would remove is the cuff as it feels like one item to many for this look.

Despite not being a fan of mixing metals, Maria gets a pass on this occasion as the silver ring is her engagement ring.

The Wimbledon championship (celebrating its 125th anniversary) kicks off on Monday June 20th, so you know what that means?

Ahhh…redemption has never looked so good.

For a promotional event earlier this week Maria Sharapova was forced to don a creepy baby tee.

I said that she was easily the worst dressed of the week, but 2 days later at her Cole Haan Fall 2010 Collection Launch in New York City she’s managed to totally redeem herself.

The tennis star opted for a Suno Fall 2010 patterned dress with 3/4 length sleeves.

I can’t wait to go do New York to see more of this collection which already has a huge celebrity following after showing for only 4 seasons.

I would have preferred brighter coloured accessories, but she was showcasing her own Fall line, and I don’t want to take anything away from her much improved look.

Without even needing to conduct a poll, the Worst Dressed Of The Week Award goes to Maria Sharapova.

The tennis star is usually on point when it comes to style, so I’m shocked at how she got it all so tragically wrong at the “Evian’s Baby On The Inside Advertisement Promotion” held at the Openhouse Gallery in New York City yesterday.

I think we need to start off with her t-shirt with the headless baby in a diaper.

Seriously?

Granted the event is all about the “baby on the inside”, but that tee is creepy and not at all cute.

Her Spring 2010 3.1 Phillip Lim sequined shorts with foldover waist detail don’t seem to work with any other piece to her rather strange look, but it does work well with her tan.

A black satin blazer and black peep-toes complete the look.

This is a serious case of dressing in the dark.

Maria needs to redeem herself.

Quickly.

Maria Sharapova is currently in Australia for the ’2010 Australian Open’ which takes place in Melbourne Park.

As much as I enjoy tennis, I’m more interested in the Russian’s red carpet looks than her backhand.

At the ‘Crown’s Tennis Players’ Party’ in Melbourne this week the opted for a Wimbledon white Cynthia Rowley Spring 2010 dress.

The dress which has a bleeding neckline was paired with a cropped black blazer and tan gladiator heels.

I love dress and the heels, but I’m not at all crazy about the cut of her blazer which is also slashed.

Evax Campaign Launch, Madrid

Monica Cruz wore a Roberto Cavalli eyelet embellished dress from the Fall 2009 collection.

We’re unsure as to whether Monz is wearing a longer length dress, or that it just appears longer in comparison to the legging model.

I like the boots as it’s in keeping with the rock chic-esque feel of the dress.

‘Sherlock Holmes’ Paris Photocall

My current girl crush Rachel McAdams is wearing a Alberta Ferretti Fall 2009 grey wool dress with jewel encrusted shoulders.

After Rachel fabulous week, I’m sad to say I’m bit bored by this.

She’s wearing a shorter length than seen on the catwalk, which I’m glad of but it feels like something is missing.

Great choice of suede Brian Atwood “Marlo” pumps.

“Creation” New York Photocall

Jennifer Connelly wore this Stella McCartney Spring 2010 suit which I think looks really chic and sophisticated.

I like the silk skirt which adds to the femininity of the ruffled front of the jacket.

I just wish that it wasn’t so much of a block colour.

“A Single Man” Cocktail Party, LA

Selma Blair was spotted arriving at this party in a Roland Mouret Pre-Fall 2008 dress.

Again, I just can’t get over excited about the black.

Her hair also looks a bit disheveled.

Paloma Picasso Tiffany & Co, Australia

Maria Sharapova looks beautiful in this slate grey v-neck Max Azria Spring 2010 dress. I really like the colour against her blonde hair.

Great choice of gladiator-style shoe as well.

The only thing I would say is that her hair could have been tidied up a bit.

Julianne Moore we love you!

She never fails to give us goosebumps and everything here is spot on, from her Lanvin two-tone bustier dress to those gorgeous t-bar shoes.

What a great hairstyle too.

Victoria’s Secret Beauty Launches Love Rocks Fragrance Collection, New York

Another day, another Taylor Momsen outfit, another desperate attempt to be alternative *yawns*.

The colour of this dress completely washes her out

And don’t get me started on the lace up cuff and the raccoon make-up which has made a comeback.

Giuseppe Zanotti biker boots complete the look.

Maria Sharapova wore this slinky Thakoon Fall 2008 dress to a dinner organised for her at Chateau Marmont.

The tennis star looked great in bold blue opting to add a chunky silver necklace, which I don’t think this piece needs with its high neckline.

I don’t like her over-styled hair much either. I can smell the hairspray from here Maria?!

Ciara looked beautiful wearing the same wool crepe shift with trusted Louboutin pumps to sit front row at Thakoon’s Spring 2010 presentation during New York Fashion Week.

It drapes over her body sublimely and the punchy colour works for her. I’m jealous of Ciara’s uber-glossy waves too!

Ciara wins this WWIB for me, what do you think?

This dress is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter.
