Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Best Dressed Award
Wearing the colour of the season – electric blue – Kate Winslet is the only actress that made me say wow last night.

The British actress was truly outstanding wearing a stunning Narciso Rodriguez body-con gown, which hugged her in all the right places.

The deep v-neck proved again that Kate is not afraid to show off her cleavage.

She completed her look with Chopard jewels.

I particularly loved her earrings.

Best Runner Up Award
Had it not been for Kate, Evan Rachel Wood would have won Best Dressed wearing this stunning teal Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2009 off-the-shoulder gown.

She accented the gown with a eagle brooch, which worked well with rest of her antique looking jewelry.

She completed her look with purple Sergio Rossi heels, and a matching clutch.

Most Dramatic Award
I like drama on the red carpet. And Teri Hatcher certainly provided that last night wearing this Monqiue Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2009 gown, which had an asymmetric bodice, folds on the skirt, a train, shoulder detail, and a black belt to finish off the look.

It all sounds to much, but it worked perfectly. Teri more than did it justice as she literally bounced with joy down the red carpet, looking particularly pleased with herself.

Most Undecided Award
I went back and forth a lot with Eva Longoria in this Jenny Packham Spring 2009 dress.

I like the dress, the colour, and the gold crystal and turquoise embellished neckline. But I really dislike Eva’s hair, and the nude mesh part of the dress.

Best White Award
There were many white gowns on the red carpet last night, but Anne Hathaway’s was the most exquisite. The actress wore a white Azzaro gown with crystal embellished neckline and belt.

This dress sees the classic beauty return to her outstanding red carpet form, we have long been admiring.

Her look was complete with Cartier jewels, and Christian Louboutin heels.

I Know You Probably Hate It, But I Love It Award
No red carpet is complete without a Elie Saab gown, and Marisa Tomei did not disappoint in this canary yellow Elie Saab Spring 2009 gown with satin floral detail.

The floral detail started on the shoulder, then cascaded down her back.

She is on fire at the moment.

Back On Track Award
After Freida Pinto’s disappointing Golden Globes gown, she was back to her best wearing a pale blue Marchesa gown.

She completed her look with a Roger Viver box clutch, and Martin Katz jewels.

Best Dressed Couple Award
Diane Lane and Josh Brolin together always make me swoon.

He was gorgeous wearing a black on black suit, whilst she shone, so elegantly, wearing a red David Meister halter gown.

Most Vibrant Award
I have not seen any movies with Viola Davis, so she was not really on my radar, but she surely grabbed my attention wearing a vibrant yellow David Meister draped stretch charmeuse one shoulder evening gown.

The colour really popped against her skin.

Best Red Award
There were a lot of red dresses on the SAG red carpet last night, but I loved the silhouette of Claire Danes’ Nina Ricci gown.

The dress was also set apart with it’s asymmetrical skirt, and its sheer cap sleeves.

She completed her look with Fred Leighton jewels and Jimmy Choo heels.

Best Couture Award
Couture doesn’t have to be about highly structured pieces. It can also be about gorgeous floaty ultra feminine pieces like this Anne Valérie Hash Fall 2008 Couture strapless gown, which Jennifer Morrison wore last night.

The lace skirt and embellished neckline look beautifully delicate.

Best Snap Back Award
The last time I saw Amy Poehler on the red carpet she was pregnant, now she has snapped back to her fabulous pre-baby figure.

The comedian also wore white, and looked angelic wearing a plunge-neck Roberto Cavalli Pre-Fall 2008 gown with a brooch detail on the empire waist.

Silver peep toes and diamond jewels completed the look.

Va Va Voom Award
WOW. I have said it before, and I will say it again. What an amazing figure Christina Hendricks has. Her racy red Carolina Herrera ruffle neck gown, does nothing but enhance it.

Glorious.

Quietly Consistent Award
Jenna Fischer does not wear anything that screams “Look At Me”, but she always manages to look fantastic.

She did so again last night wearing a dove grey silk chiffon plunge-neck Pamella Roland gown with yellow and grey beading along the empire-waist.

Best Deja Vu Award
Lisa Edelstein is wearing a red Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2009 asymmetric gown, we have seen many times before. Mainly because there is a Resort 2009 dress which looks very similar which was recently worn by Gabrielle Union.

I never imagined I would see this blue velvet Alexander McQueen Fall 2008 coat, with gold embroidery on the red carpet, but of course it would be Trudie Styler who’d make it happen.

Trudie is not afraid of taking risks. They don’t alway pay off, but I really do like what she has done here.

She looks regal, like a queen without her tiara, but she would have to lose those gold hooped earrings.

When I first saw Kerry Washington in this gold Jasmine di Milo Fall 2007 dress, with the sheer yoke I hated it. But to be honest it has grown on me. There is something quite futuristic and McQueen-esqe about it.

Kerry was safely consistent last year, so it’s nice to see her wear something with a bit of an edge.

The Jasmine di Milo Fall 2007 collection seems like it’s having a bit of a revival. First Rihanna, now Kerry.

She completes her look with a black Mary Norton clutch, with gold detailing.

Demi Moore arrived with her hubby, wearing a stunning silver and black sequined dress, which she wore with the heavenly Christian Louboutin Eugenie satin pumps.

Jessica Alba wore black pants and a black tank, but she brighten up her look with a gold blazer, gold peep-toes, and a gold Jimmy Choo Kase oval clutch.

Marisa Tomei wore a black dress with bronze bubble hem. She completed the look with black tights, pumps and her Fendi Borderline satin clutch.

Shakira wore a strapless royal blue Carolina Herrera gown with black detailing on the side.

Kate Walsh arrived wearing a strapless Missoni floral printed dress, with brown sequined bodice.

Diane Kruger more than did this ivory Giambattista Valli Spring 2009 dress justice, when she attended the Pour Elle Paris Premiere at the Paramount Opera Paris last November.

The German actress wore her dress with ruby red velvet shoes, and her hair was loosely tied back.

Marisa Tomei attended the Creative Coalition’s Inaugural Ball on Tuesday night in Washington, wearing the same dress in black.

Both ladies did me proud, by keeping the skirt true to the presented dress, but I much prefer the ivory dress, so Diane wins for me.

Finally an actress other than Diane Kruger who has worn this Giambattista Valli Spring 2009 dress as it was intended…WITH VOLUME.

Amy Adams wore a dress from this collection recently, but she ruined it by making it so flat and lifeless.

Marisa Tomei wore this stunning 3/4 length sleeve black dress, when she attended The Creative Coalition’s Inaugural Ball last night.

She kept her look simple by adding black pumps, and her favourite Fendi Mini Borderline satin clutch.

Worst Dressed Award
Debra Messing disappoints me again in a very unflattering Vera Wang gown.

Worst Hair Award
Renee Zellweger walked the red carpet wearing a Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2009 gown, which was modified the runway.

I must admit I love the dress. It’s the poodle hair I just can’t get on board with.

Best Rachel Zoe Impersonation Award
Rachel Zoe cloned Nicole Richie, Lindsay Lohan and Mischa Barton. All starlets desperate for attention and fame.

So when I look at Cameron Diaz, I ask WFT happened? She used to have such an athletic body and now she had become a Zobot, with lollypop head, and over-tanned skin.

I am nothing but disturbed by this new look, which is only extenuated in her pink Chanel Fall 2008 Couture asymmetrical gown.

To make matters worst her hair is horrific. Going to the Globes you would have thought Cameron would have had her roots done.

I’m crying inside, crying I tell you.

No Class/Most Obnoxious On The Red Carpet Award
Miley Cyrus was by far the most annoying person to walk the red carpet last night. She was loud and rude. And the worst thing is her parents seemed to be encouraging her.

She was sticking her tongue out, giving the peace sign proving what I always thought. This girl has no class.

Her Marchesa Spring 2009 strapless gown with gold embroidery detail was beyond boring.

Worst Throw Back Award
JLo turned up last night instead of Jennifer Lopez.

Jennifer in this dress takes me back to the time when she was dating Puff Daddy, and wearing ghetto gold, embellished head bands and low cut dresses, like this gold Marchesa Spring 2009 gown.

Biggest Let Down Award
I know many of you will not agree, but I just hate those extra pieces of material on Eva Mendes’ white Dior gown. It does not seem to serve a purpose. It’s not a bow, it’s not a doing anything but just hanging there.

I love everything else, so it kills me to put her on this list.

Worst Couture Award
Freida Pinto made this Christian Lacroix Fall 2008 Couture gown look very ordinary. It looked so magical on the runway.

She completed her look with a Judith Leiber clutch.

Too Casual Award
I really love this Oscar de la Renta Spring 2009 look on Marisa Tomei, but for me it’s too casual for an event like this.

Worst Gold Award
Megan Fox moaned the whole way through her E! interview about how she looked like a tranny. Obviously fishing for compliments, to boost her already over inflated ego.

For me she really cheapens this Ralph Lauren Spring 2009 gown.

Most Boring Award
Penelope Cruz really seems to have lost her sparkle, even in this Armani Prive gown. There is nothing exciting, nor interesting for me to wow about.

Just Don’t Care Anymore Award
Yes it is an improvement on last year horror show, but I just don’t really care about Blake Lively anymore.

The actress wore a steel blue Nina Ricci gown, that a year ago would have got me excited.

Played It Too Safe Award
Yes Amy Adams always plays it safe, but instead of this Oscar de la Renta Spring 2009 gown, which is very typical of her style. It would be nice to see something unexpected, with more of a wow factor.

Eva Mendes had an incredible 2008 on the red carpet, so I am glad she has started 2009 with a bang.

The stunning actress looks outstanding wearing a nude Christian Dior Spring 2009 haltered gown.

The keyhole belted gown has crystals embellished on the top half of the dress, and a long flowing skirt.

This is a poke in the ribs for all those who say my girl plays it safe.

Kirsten Dunst was absent from the red carpet for most of 2008, but it looks like during that down time she didn’t lose any of her flair.

Her silk Valentino gown, had a ruffled collar, and a delicate chiffon petal front bib.

Kiki is back, and looking better than ever.

Ali Larter’s black silk Ralph Lauren Spring 2009 gown is simply magnificent. She carries the gown, which has a gold embellished neckline, with both style and grace.

She is a designer’s delight with a lean body and beautiful face. I could not gush about how much I love this enough.

I’m a little disappointed in Kate Bosworth’s pick of this black leaf detailed Nina Ricci Spring 2009 dress.

Olivier Theyskens’ Nina Ricci Spring 2009 collection was full of these short at the front, long at the back dresses, which just didn’t float my boat.

Kate of all people should have made me love it, but even she couldn’t.

Sophia Bush was exquisitely styled in a white strapless Monique Lhuillier gown. Simplicity at its finest, and I don’t think she has ever looked so good.

Her silver jewels perfected this already perfect look.

Joy Bryant wore yellow Missoni maxi dress, with gold accessories.

This girl never gets it wrong.

I don’t know about you, but there is something not quite right about the fit of Nicole Richie’s Jasmine di Milo Spring 2008 dress.

The top half is heavily embroidered, which no doubt would make it quite heavy. So it’s no wonder that the bodice sits quite low down on her.

I can also see her tit-tape, which is never a good thing.

Marisa Tomei practically lives on the red carpet at the moment, but when you’re hot, you’re hot.

Keeping the same hairstyle from her red carpet appearance earlier in the day, the actress changed into this black and white strapless dress.

The dress had a black bow detailing the bodice, and a white chiffon shirt with black script across it.

Rachel Griffiths wear the colour of the moment – electric blue.

Her 50s silk blue cocktail dress from Decades, is matched with a purple Daniel Swarovski clutch and eggplant heels.

Milla Jovovich wears a headband Mischa Barton would approve of, with her black, yellow and white Pucci keyhole gown.

I hate to jump on the Rumer Willis bashing bandwagon, but she really needs to look back at how great she looked during the House Bunny LA premiere, and try to reintroduce that look to the red carpet. Time after time she gets it so wrong.

Nothing is good here.

Courteney Cox Arquette wears an dress that is not black. Shocker.

Amy Smart wears this red Yves Saint Laurent Pre-Fall 2008 gown with braided detail on the front, which was worn last year by Nicole Kidman whilst she was pregnant with her first child.

I love the colour on Amy, but the style feels too old for her.

Amber Heard went all out in this blood red Dolce & Gabbana corseted dress.

It is a very bold dress, and I admire her for having the guts to wear it, but the feathered bloodied hem is kinda creepy.

A new year, a new darker ‘do for Brittany Snow.

Her Dolce & Gabbana strapless black corseted dress, makes her hips look wider than I assume they are.

I would have liked to have seen something much more slinkier on Brittany.

I can’t remember the last time I saw a high pony on the red carpet.

Shannen Doherty wears a sheer black dress with white floral appliqués. Not the best dressed, but it works for her.
