61st Annual DGA Awards

What a knock out.

Freida Pinto looks nothing short of breath-taking, wearing this metallic one-shouldered Zac Posen Spring 2009 mini dress, to the Directors Guild of America Awards over the weekend.

She wore her dress with matching peep-toes, and her hair and make-up were totally flawless.

The former aspiring model has only had one bad day on the red carpet, which she’s more than made up for ever since.

Amy Adams arrived wearing a shimmering Jasmine Di Milo Spring 2007 dress, with silver and nude sequin details.

What I love is how the dress is cut low at the back, as Amy tries to shake her “safe on the red carpet” image.

Amy never lets me down, safe or not, so this is another fantastic look for me.

Silver Christian Louboutin Fortuna slingbacks complete the look.

Marisa Tomei has an amazing figure, and this white strapless Dior gown shows it off by giving her a very sexy silhouette.

She completes her look with a stunning silver necklace with heart-shape details, and a purple clutch.

Taraji P. Henson strapless Kaufman Franco dress really gives her a lift.

For some reason the necklace really bothers me. The bodice has such an interesting detail on it, but the necklace distracts me.

Taraji gets better and better this awards season.

Michelle Monaghan had a baby girl 3 months ago, and is already back on the red carpet looking stunning.

She shows us her post-baby figure for the first time, wearing a white strapless Giambattista Valli Spring 2009 dress, covered in black paillettes.

Rachel Griffiths is glowing in a champagne coloured Lanvin Fall 2008 dress.

Her jewels are by Neil Lane, and her silver clutch is by Alexandra Knight.

This is a nice enough Temperley London dress for Claire Danes, with the embellished shoulders, but something is missing.

A matching embellished belt perhaps?

Now this is one Herve Leger dress you guys just have to love.

Viola Davis’ dress has a chiffon skirt, to give it such chic elegant touch.

I am glad she opted for a gold clutch, which really grabs your attention.

I love Virginia Madsen. She is always so bold on the red carpet. Never hiding behind black, never covering up.

She has it, and she’s flaunting it.

You go girl.

I am loving the sparkling details on Lisa Edelstein LBD, which is very sexy.

Terri Seymour, the ex-girlfriend of Simon Cowell, used to always be well groomed on the red carpet.

The black turtleneck dress looks fab on her, because lets face it she has the body to carry it, but the crimped hair is such a big no-no.

I don’t think crimped hair has been cool since the 80s.

26.01.09 Best Dressed

2009 SAG Awards – Best Dressed

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.

The Huffington Post Pre-Inaugural Ball

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.

Who Wore Giambattista Valli Better? Diane Kruger or Marisa Tomei


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.

Runway To The Creative Coalition’s Inaugural Ball – Marisa Tomei In Giambattista Valli


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.
