Red Carpet Fashion Awards

All these Awards nominations are getting me very excited about Awards season next year.

Earlier this week we saw Diane Kruger present the nominations for the Golden Globes in Chanel, today we have Michelle Monaghan wearing J.Mendel to present the nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The beautiful actress glowed in her butterscotch one-shoulder dress, which she paired with Brian Atwood nude patent leather Zenith pumps.

I just love the folded details which starts on her shoulder and works it ways down her bodice then fans out on her skirt.

What a great week for fashion.

LOVE this look, and I just adore the colour on her.

“Friday Night with Jonathan Ross” London

Reese Witherspoon was in London this week to meet MPs at London’s House of Commons to talk about domestic violence issues, as part of her role as honorary chairwoman of the Avon Foundation.

Whilst in London she took time out to visit the “Jonathan Ross Show” which is tape on Thursday but aired on Friday.

Her lace dress could be a modified dress from Stella McCartney’s Resort 2010 collection, which she pairs with bold red lipstick and cute Stella McCartney mesh heels.

She’s glowing here. I just love this look.

“The Young Victoria” Los Angeles Premiere

Emily Blunt wears a short and sassy black and white print flutter sleeved Marchesa dress.

The black ribbon is a nice touch, the tights I can live with but I’m not so crazy about her heels.

“Invictus” LA Premiere

I love the texture of Michelle Monaghan’s silver one-shoulder RM by Roland Mouret dress.

The voluminous hips are flattering rather than disguising, and I love her accessories including her Diego Dolcini heels and statement necklace which really brings this look to life.

BAM Belle Reve Gala With A Performance Of A Streetcar Named Desire, New York

Cate Blanchett opted for a grey strapless Armani Prive dress with a lace overlay, paired with black pumps.

Even without the wow factor, Cate still looks great.

I would kill for those stunning earrings.

19th Annual Beat The Odds Awards, LA

Zoe Saldana plays is safe wearing a navy blue Alaia dress paired with a Alaia belt and black pumps.

This is a tad boring for me.

BBC 2 Gig, London

Immigration clearly didn’t get my memo.

Leona Lewis wearing corsets with everything is just not funny anymore.

The girl needs an intervention.

Michelle Monaghan was the first to wear this Acne electric blue dress with a voluminous draping over one shoulder, when she attended the Fenton/Fallon Boutique Opening in New York back in September.

The Fall 2009 dress was a great look for her, but those booties don’t work so well for me.

Actress Kaley Cuoco wore the same dress to the “Fresh Faces in Fashion” event in LA last month.

She paired her dress with strappy sandals and a powder blue clutch which was too much for this look.

Even though I love Michelle, she gets nil points for her footwear. I can just about live with Kaley clutch so she wins for me.

Hilary Swank continues to give red carpet master classes, this time wearing a Monique Lhuillier Fall 2009 black gown.

The cut-out details some how make the actress look even more slender and taller, and the embellish details prevent this from being a boring black gown.

Oscar buzz will guarantee you one thing – an endless supply of stunning dresses to wear on the red carpet – and that’s exactly what Carey Mulligan has been wearing lately.

The style-icon-in-the-making wore a Prabal Gurung Spring 2010 black beaded chiffon strapless dress with shirttail hem and silk faille bowtie to cinched in her waist.

She teamed her dress with tortoise-shell heels and a chunky gold bracelet.

I’m loving the quiff.

Zooey Deschanel is probably the only person who I feel dresses up with tights, rather than covers up with tights.

We often see her in various colours of tights, but on this occasion she opted for black to match the black trims on her cute Luella Spring 2010 dress.

Her look was paired with Martin Lewis for Luella bow accented heels and a black Chanel bag.

Like the runway model Zooey wears a black bow in her hair, but she opted to wears hers at the back.

There were a lot of black dresses at this event, but Kate Beckinsale’s Michael Kors Resort 2010 dress was made interesting with the asymmetrical neckline and the draped detail on the skirt.

Long gold earrings and a chunky cuff complete the sophisticated look.

Despite Diane Kruger being one of the few not to wear black at this event, I wasn’t crazy about her look.

She kept her look light and feminine wearing a Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2010 white silk dress with a rise and fall hem, but unfortunately the nude heels really let her down.

I loved how this gown billowed on the runway, and although that drama is lost on the red carpet Diane still tried to make it work.

I also preferred how the dress sits above the knee on the model, the length feels a bit awkward on Diane.

Julianne Moore is not afraid of colour, as she wore a beautiful coral dress with voluminous sleeves.

I adore the colour on her.  She can be so breath-taking at times without much effort.

The actress paired her dress with Chanel ankle strap heels, and a black Bottega Veneta Impero satin clutch.

Michelle Monaghan looked stunning in a black strapless dress with a floral embroidered detail on the bodice.

She glows as brightly as her Martin Katz jewels.

Dare I say this, but I’m bored.

Charlize Theron normally blows me away each time she hits the red carpet, but I can only get excited about her red Louboutin’s with a gold toe cap and Bottega Veneta clutch.

Her The Row ensemble is very meh!!!

AnnaLynne McCord provided the sultry glamour I was expecting from Charlize, by posing seductively in a one-shouldered black gown.

Taraji P. Henson is wearing a really nice Rachel Roy dress, but it somehow feels out of place at this event.

I’m also not loving the hair extensions. She worked the shorter style really well.

What’s most tragic is the make-up. Why does she have a layer of white powder under her eyes?

Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival, Florida

Michelle Monaghan was honoured with the “Rising Star on the Horizon Award” at this Festival whilst glowing in a RM by Roland Mouret Traverse wool shift dress.

She paired with black strappy sandals and a gold clutch.

This is such a sophisticated look for the beautiful actress.

Black Eyed Peas Official After Party, LA

Fergie opted for a one-sleeved Gucci Fall 2009 black and silver tunic dress.

She wore her dress with the popular Gucci Division over-the-knee boots which celebrities have fallen in love with.

2009 Environmental Media Awards, LA

Olivia Wilde looks outstanding wearing a Stella McCartney stretch lace panel dress.

I love the way she wore her hair back so we can see all the detail on her stunning dress.

Normally I’m wowed by Katie Cassidy on the red carpet, but not so much on this occasion.

She still looks great in her white and black printed one-sleeved Loeffler Randall dress, but the Guiseppe Zanotti booties don’t work for me.

She completed her look with a Christian Louboutin Loubistuds clutch.

Ginnifer Goodwin wore a very pretty white strapless 1 OAK dress made from recycled materials, which she paired with contrasting accessories including a black ribbon belt, a black clutch and grey Stella McCartney heels for a prim and polished look.

Jet Nightclub At The Mirage, Las Vegas

Whitney Port looked gorgeous in a coral patterned Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 dress with a high neck and ultra short hem. I love the dress, but when is she going to wear something from her own Spring 2010 collection?

The host of this party paired her dress with sparkling Giuseppe Zanotti jeweled sandals.

PIX11 Morning News, New York

Actress Michelle Monaghan was seen at the PIX11 Morning News studios in New York to promote her latest film “Trucker”.

She wore a black and cream Elie Saab Fall 2009 dress with a graphic stitch detail.

Her dress was paired with black suede pumps.

I prefer her colour combination to the one presented on the runway.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Eliza Dushku wore a cream crew-neck Kimberly Ovitz Jacob jersey mini dress which has pintucks throughout, paired with two tone Marni heels and a Tory Burch studded messenger bag.

For a second I thought she was Mariah Carey with those shade on.

New York City Premiere of Milton Hershey School Documentary, New York

When I first saw this Chris Benz Fall 2009 floral print dress one-sleeved dress on the runway, I wondered who would be crazy enough to wear this on the red carpet.

Paula Patton did this week with blue suede Sergio Rossi heels.

I’m surprised to admit that I think she totally look great in the dress.   This mix of colours really complements her skin-tone.

Nomads Two Worlds Art Preview, Australia

Fergie’s Karl Lagerfeld Fall 2009 black dress with a v-shaped textured panel is very similar to the dress Katy Perry wore from the same collection to Lagerfeld Spring 2010 show during Paris Fashion Week.

With her hair tightly pulled back Fergie wore her dress with black pumps and an Alexander McQueen Faithfull leather glove clutch.

Grand Opening Of The Famous Cupcakes Beverly Hills, LA

Kim Kardashian showed off some of her surprisingly toned abs wearing a black Pencey open back dress, which she paired with black pumps.

Newlywed Khloe Kardashian opted for an Alexander Wang one-sleeve jersey dress paired with the increasingly popular Christian Louboutin Bridget lace ankle boots.
