Michelle Rodriguez In Jean Fares Couture – 2011 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Michelle Rodriguez wowed me at the 2011 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala during 2011 Cannes Film Festival this evening.

I make that twice in one year.

The actress seems to be taking the red carpet more seriously these days, which was perfectly showcased by her wearing this Jean Fares Couture gown tonight.

I love the pretty pink colour on her. I don’t think she’s ever worn anything this delicate.

The open back dress looks to be paying an homage to Celine Dion’s Oscar tuxedo don’t you think?

As well as having embellished pockets, the gown also has embellishments cascading down the back.

I have to say I love this effort from her, despite the gown being too long at the front.

Who Wore Basil Soda Better? Shy’m or Michelle Rodriguez

French pop singer Shy’m attended the NRJ Awards in Cannes back in January, looking stunning in this black architectural Basil Soda gown.

She let the gown do most of the talking with the rest of the focus being on her towering hairdo.

Some bracelets or a cocktail ring would have been a welcome addition, but since she looks so glamorous I’m willing to let that part go.

Shy’m must know how amazing she looks since she is seriously working it on the red carpet. It’s hard to find fault with this.

Michelle Rodriguez surprised us all by stepping out in the same dress for her “Battle: Los Angeles” LA Premiere

Usually favouring a more casual look on the red carpet, this was a huge step up for the actress, but it certainly wasn’t perfect.

Her necklace is too fussy for a dress with an asymmetrical neckline. Even though her hair looks gorgeous, I would have loved to see it pulled back to really let her beauty (and the gown) shine.

Michelle gets points for stepping out of her comfort zone and trying something new but the details – including a basic black clutch – are just all wrong.

Shy’m on the other hand gets it right by directing most of the attention to the dress and her hair. She owns the look and knows it.

Shy’m wins for me.

Michelle Rodriguez In Basil Soda – “Battle: Los Angeles” LA Premiere

I found myself very surprised by Michelle Rodriguez on the red carpet at the “Battle: Los Angeles” LA Premiere.

I was surprised because I didn’t hate the look.

Usually I dislike anything she wears mostly because she doesn’t have the grace to pull off most gowns or she pairs a leather jacket with everything.

On this occasion I feel like she really made an effort wearing a black Basil Soda gown despite wanting to take a pair of scissors to chop off that oversized padded shoulder.

Apart from the shoulder this look would’ve been more effective had she ditched the necklace.

I’ve never been a fan of necklaces with an asymmetrical neckline.

2010 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala Round Up

Here’s a look at the rest of the stars attending the 2010 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala which took place in Cannes tonight.

Go to page 2 to see all the other looks from this event.

Rachel Bilson makes me hit the snooze button even though she’s wearing a beautiful Chanel Couture Fall 2009 navy dress.

The dress is fine, it’s just the drab styling that brings everything down.

Michelle Williams unsurprisingly goes against the grain to wear this adorable Sonia Rykiel Fall 2008 multi coloured pailette mini dress.

This is a perfect example of having your own personal style and making it work for you at any event.

Ferragamo heels and a Chanel clutch complete the look.

This is what Rachel should’ve worn.

Mary J Blige looked breath-taking wearing a stunning Gucci nude pearl micro beaded one-shouldered gown featuring drape down her skirt.

Michelle Rodriguez looks the best she’s ever looked.

I love this fuschia pink dress, it’s stunning on her plus I’m lusting after her matchy matchy pink heels.

“Avatar” LA Premiere

Do you hear that?

That’s that sound of another ball being knocked out of the fashion ball park by Zoe Saldana.

I’m love her Versace Spring 2010 mini chain dress more than the runway version.

The white feels more modern in comparison, plus her dress fits her better than the model.

I like that she opted for Brian Atwood gold “Maniac” pumps, instead of the Spring 2010 Versace heels which are Shakira’s current obsession.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. What a fantastic year she’s having.

Audrina Patridge was my second favourite on this red carpet.

Her sea green Rue du Mail Spring 2010 ensemble is very sophisticated for The Hills star and I especially love the yellow Prada clutch and Alexander McQueen silver heels she paired with this look.

I must say I’m shocked that Audrina is channeling this brand, but she totally rocks it.

Michelle Rodriguez’ hair is way out of control for my liking, but the fact that she’s wearing a pretty Ina Soltani gown which looks gorgeous against her olive skin is enough for me.

Baby steps.

Sigourney Weaver walked the red carpet wearing a stunning black sequin wrap dress with white strappy sandals.

She used to occasion to promote her Life magazine cover.

So very elegant.

I make that two for two for Leona Lewis.

This is a hopeful sign that her corset days are firmly behind her.

This heavily embellished silver gown is very Beyonce circa 2004, but I like it.

11.12.09 Premiere

“Avatar” World Premiere

Zoe Saldana has had an amazing year on the red carpet.

She continues to shine so brightly for me.

Earlier this week she wowed us wearing an Andrew GN ensemble and now I’m floored by this stunning RM by Roland Mouret silver gown.

I love the texture of her mermaid gown plus the structured shoulders.

I also love the very subtle necklace she wore with the gown, which actually looks to be part of the gown.

She now potentially has 2 looks in the BDOTW poll.

Michelle Rodriguez normally is very unpredictable on the red carpet, as she’s been known to throw up her skirt over her head on the odd occasion.

Last night she looked graceful wearing black Bodyamr silk floor-length dress worn with a built-in plum croc leather and gold belt.

Sigourney Weaver held her own against her younger co-stars looking delightful wearing an black off-the-shoulder Bottega Veneta gown paired with a black sequined cardigan.

She looks so elegant here.  She’s starting to erasing the memory of the days when she used to dress so badly.
