Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

Sienna Miller was your Best Dressed this week wearing a strapless icy-blue Thakoon mini dress with gold Jimmy Choo heels, after fighting off Ashlee Simpson and beating her by only 1%.

Michelle Monaghan was by far my favourite this week.

I loved her body-sculpting Rachel Roy long sleeved navy dress with bold shoulders, paired with Manolo Blahnik heels.

It’s not easy to wear such a dress, but she oozed confidence and sexy sophistication.

Despite being the human equivalent to a magpie and being instantly attracted to anything the sparkles, I’m not in love with Diane Kruger’s embellished Miu Miu mini dress as I don’t think it flatters her.

I feel like tugging the skirt down as it sits too high for my liking.

She completed her vixen look with bright red lips and black strappy heels.

Diane’s co-star Mélanie Laurent faired much better wearing a Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2009 Couture black ensemble.

The look consisted of a black pencil skirt, patent waist belt and a sheer halter top, which she lined from the runway version.

Black peep-toes and a black Christian Louboutin clutch completed the look.

Love the look, but I’m not at all crazy about her hair.

Michelle Monaghan looked outstanding wearing a navy blue Rachel Roy Resort 2010 dress with sculptural peaked shoulders.

The bold shoulder is not an easy look to pull off, but Michelle does with ease.

Manolo Blahnik white strappy sandals and a silver cuff complete the look.

Rachel Roy modified Spring 2009 strapless dress to become a spaghetti strapped taupe dress with a less revealing metallic neckline.

Her look is made more interesting with a chunky silver necklace from Michael Kors Fall 2009 collection.

I like designers like Rachel, Donatella Versace and recently Georgina Chapman who modify their own designs to make them more individual.  Take notes Mrs B.

I LOVE Agyness Deyn here.

For once the British model looks glamorous even though she’s wearing a Rocky Horror Show t-shirt.

There’s something about the neatness of her look that I’m drawn too. The sleek bob, the pencil skirt, the red Lulu Guinness lips clutch, her gold strappy Méchante of London’s ‘Elektra’ Rose python heels and the cleanliness of it all.

Not a hint of grunge in sight.

Alexa Chung’s style is not to my liking, but I do appreciate her shirt with a studded collar, plus her H&M skirt, but I can’t bare the greasy hair.

I don’t understand how greasy hair became so trendy.

Actress Julia Stiles looked smart and chic wearing a white satin dress, with an ivory criss cross detail that goes across her back.

She paired her dress with gold gladiator sandals and a white clutch.

Olivia Palermo bucked the short and sassy trend at this event and opted for a ruffled maxi Kate Moss for Topshop dress.

Although she does look elegant and she has added a pony tail to her trademark hairstyle, I can’t help feel a bit bored by her look.

The edgy New Yorker appears to have soften her look.

Melissa George made a huge statement wearing a bold red dress to this screening.

The star was very sophisticated in scarlet as she added black accessories including a studded peep-toes.

Eva Amurri where is your bra?

With twins like those they need support.

Emmanuelle Chriqui at least wore a bra, even though I can see it under her white Kain Label Pocket Tee.

Her electric blue clutch punches up her laid-back look.

Socialite Fabiola Beracasa channels her inner Victoria Beckham wearing a ridiculous headband whilst ruining her gorgeous plum Alexander Wang one-sleeve jersey dress.

With her newly plumped lips Lindsay Lohan walked the red carpet looking a disheveled mess, but then what’s new about that?

I’m sure the actress got many calls from Britney Spears last night, asking for her ratty extensions back.
