Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were in New York to attend the JCPenney’s Best Of Spring Showcase last night.

Mary-Kate wore a black slightly oversized Dries van Noten blazer as a dress, with a leather belt wrapped around her waist.

I like this look on Mary-Kate, mostly because it’s not 10 times too big for her.

Ashley also opted for a dark colour wearing a navy Jil Sander Spring 2010 belted dress.

On the runway this dress was presented with a skirt over a dress, but Ashley opted out of the skirt, but added sheer sleeves.

I’m not sure how you feel about Ashley’s look, but for me her modifications are a major downgrade.

I’m also disappointed with the black tights. Even I own a pair of navy tights.

I don’t get this at all.

Couture Award
Of course one of the Olsen twins had to wear a Couture and standout on the red carpet at the 2010 Elle Style Awards.

Ashley Olsen wore a modified Christian Lacroix Spring 2010 gown which had a very long train which she paired with Fendi heels.

Susie Bubble tweeted “Accidentally stepped on this gal’s long tulle dress”.

LOL at Susie for totally not recognising Ashley on the red carpet.

It was a big gown for Ashley, but for once she didn’t appear to be drowning in it.

Sister Mary-Kate opted for a black Lanvin ensemble with a black fur shrug.

Both were not in the mood for talking much, so her PR told us what they were wearing.

She said, “Ashley’s wearing La..Lacr..Lacro..” to which we all said in union “Lacroix” to which she laughed and thanked us.

The twins received the “Style Icon” award for their unique and individual fashion personalties, which they are clearly showing off here.

I’m not sure if I said this before, but when it comes to the Olsen twins I just don’t get the appeal.

I never have and I guess I never will.

When I see Mary Kate Olsen wearing this beautiful Lanvin Fall 2009 coat I feel physical pain.

Pain that she destroyed such a classic piece and made it look like she picked it up in the “get it before it goes” section and Topshop after it has been dragged through the store for half a season.

I don’t think I can look at this coat with the same affection after this.

The coat is just way too big for her and she’s way too short for it.

Her look is paired with a Balenciaga bag and Lanvin ankle boots.

Veronica Webb looked spectacular wearing a dusky pink Rachel Roy Spring 2010 long sleeved dress with an asymmetrical hemline.

Long necklaces, a pink studded clutch and grey Manolo Blahnik heels designed by Rachel Roy completed her look.

Rachel Roy was also there to show how fabulous she can look on the red carpet.

She also wore her Manolo Blahnik heels with an aqua wrap dress from her Spring 2010 collection.

A black clutch and a stunning gold necklace completed her look.

Miuccia Prada’s biggest fan Anna Wintour stepped out wearing the same red velvet Prada Fall 2009 dress we’ve seen on Jessica Alba.

Michelle Harper struck a serious pose wearing a Zac Posen Fall 2009 dress, which she strangely paired with Trib Two’s.

I’m not liking the length of her dress, but then Lily is freakishly tall.

Ashley Greene continues to give us fabulousity by wearing a gorgeous black D&G ensemble which includes a sheer tank and black ruched skirt with embroidery detail.

She’s having a fabulous week.

I know a lot of you love Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, but at times like this I wonder what all the fuss is about.

The only thing worth drooling over are Ashley’s canary yellow Manolo Blahnik Hangisi pumps.

Rose Byrne opted for a sheer dress which had a sequin skirt and a criss cross sequin detail on the bodice.

Although I do appreciate Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s style, they never appear to be having fun but that changed when they arrived on the red carpet for “Opening Ceremony” Japan reception party wearing Maison Michel Fall 2009 lace ears with their ensembles.

You may remember Lady Gaga wore these same lace ears recently.

Ashley wore the Mickey Mouse lace head band with a black fitted The Row Weatherby dress with a cream coat, her favourite Prada studded heels and Ralph Lauren tortoiseshell sunglasses.

Mary-Kate opted for the Rabbit Ears with her interesting black dress by a Japanese designer.

Her Toga Fall 2009 long sleeved dress had lots of texture with ruffles, pleats and layers.

She wore her dress with Prada Spring 2009 heels, and both girl carried Prada Fall 2009 bags.

It seems they both have a love for Miuccia Prada’s accessories.

There’s no way Kirsten Dunst’s could top the Olsen twins looks, but her look was also far from safe.

The actress looked like a maid wearing a high neck black mini dress trimmed with white lace and black ribbons.

A Chanel purse and black lace-up peep-toe booties completed the look.

This is not my favourite look from Kristen, plus the Chanel bag seem too big and a bit much for her look.

Humberto Leon the Creative Director of Opening Ceremony, actress Rinko Kikuchi and Carol Lim the CEO of Opening Ceremony walked the red carpet together.

Rinko wore a black double strap mini dress with exposed zippers.

I love the smokey eyes, and her sleek bob which has grown out from the shorter bob she was sporting earlier this year.

She wore her dress with the very popular Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony multi buckle wedge booties as worn by Chloe herself and Leighton Meester.

Carol Lim was wearing the same Opening Ceremony Lantern dress Alexis Bledel wore to the Teen Choice Awards, but Carol’s is black and blue, whereas Alexis was blue all over.

Designer Alexander Wang and model Erin Wasson look so hip it hurts.

Erin gave us her usual “I just threw this on” look, wearing a taupe tank top with leopard print shorts and black ankle boots.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were at the Holt Renfrew in Toronto this week, to present their Elizabeth and James collection.

Mary-Kate wore a black coat/dress worn with a leather belt, and a stand out pair of bejeweled pair Miu Miu Cabachon heels.

Ashley opted for a simple sweater and white Elizabeth and James Edith shorts, paired with a few necklaces and stunning Prada studded t-bar sandals.

The girls looked great, but it was their heels that stood out for me.

Whilst in Toronto the girls stopped by the MuchOnDemand TV studio’s to talk about their two fashion lines plus which fashion trends “were whack” and which to “bring back.”

Mary-Kate wore an Elizabeth & James striped schoolboy shirt under an Elizabeth & James Boyfriend plaid coat which she paired with Prada Python Patchwork Sandals.

I love her look, but I’m not crazy about her barely there eyebrows.

Ashley look stunning as always wearing a pink blouse paired with grey pants, a green woven belt and her Prada heels from before.

Both sisters wore a Robert Lee Morris for Elizabeth and James Double Snake coil rings.
