Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Red Carpet

Heidi Klum shows off her post-pregnancy figure wearing a black Roberto Cavalli tiered chiffon dress with asymmetrical strap with a paillette trim.

She completes her fabulous look wearing satin Christian Louboutin Maggie heels.

Fabulous.

What I love most about Fergie’s look is her silver embellished Christian Louboutin pigalles.

They are truly lust worthy as they sparkle as brightly as her necklace and bracelet.

The singer looked sexy wearing a red hot lace Dolce & Gabbana mini dress.

I’m still not understanding her hair colouring.

Carine Roitfeld wore her Dolce & Gabbana lace dress/cape/Christian Louboutin thigh high boots combination for the 2nd time in 2 weeks.

We didn’t like it the first time Carine.

Keri Hilson is normally immaculate on the red carpet.

On this rare occasion she looks hideous as her dress look very cheap.  She also looks one step away from a wardrobe malfunction.

For such a fun loving event Michelle Trachtenberg’s navy strapless dress feels a bit too conservative.

After Party

At the after party the models came out to play.

Alessandra Ambrosio looked adorable in her sassy Valentino Fall 2009 Couture bustier dress.

Chanel Iman flashed us her megawatt trademark smile whilst wearing the same Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 dress we’ve seen on Anne Hathaway.

Marisa Miller was of course in Herve Leger, and Selita Ebanks donned a tight metallic dress with Givenchy heels.

Fergie performed at this event, but she wasn’t too tired to enjoy the party.

The singer wore a beautiful Blumarine Fall 2009 multi-colour animal print mini dress, which she toughen up with Balmain Uma zipper ankle boots.

I love this look, even with those ankle boots.

Miranda Kerr makes me not hate leopard print.

The VS Angel shunned the expected mini dress, and opted for a sexy lingerie inspired Christian Dior Spring 2008 leopard print dress.

Sharon Stone will be so jealous.

Model Candice Swanepoel wore a very risqué dress from Cushnie et Ochs’ Spring 2010 collection.

I love the asymmetrical hem line and the nude heels she paired with her dress.

Oh Heidi, do you have to keep taunting us?

The fact that you can wear a PVC dress this skin-tight after giving birth 5 weeks ago is leaving us green with envy.

Gorgeous dress.

I’m guessing it won’t be long before we see Victoria Beckham in those white Trib Two’s as she has them in every other colour.

Known for her mix of vintage glamour, art and culturally inspired-design, Anna Sui developed her Target collection inspired by the distinct looks of “Gossip Girl” characters Serena van der Woodsen, Blair Waldorf, Jenny Humphrey and Vanessa Abrams.

You may remember I did a post on the looks a few months ago.

Today Target opened a limited-time-only pop-up store in celebration of the Anna Sui for Target collection launch to give New Yorkers the opportunity to shop the entire collection before it hits stores nationwide on September 13th.

Emma Stone was one of the many guests at the launch party last night.

She wore a white lace accented with a blue bow from Blair Waldorf’s collection with uninspiring black pumps.

Blake Lively was there to support the collection, but wasn’t actually wearing the collection.

She wore a cute multi-coloured tiered dress with the same Christian Louboutin studded heels Alexandra Burke wore earlier this week, plus a stack of bangles.

Fresh faced and gorgeous as always.

Jessica Szohr gave us her best diva poses as she walked the red carpet wearing a cropped top and black jeans, with some questionable animal print heels.

Michelle Trachtenberg opted for a bright floral dress which she partially covered with a leather jacket

OMG. Taylor Momsen gets scarier and scarier for me.

The T-shirt and high-waisted skirt aren’t the issue.

It’s the hair and make-up.

You can check out the Anna Sui for Target collection online.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Anne Heche arrived a Letterman wearing a Catherine Malandrino LBD with ruffled shoulders decorated with an antique gunmetal trim.

Anne teamed her look with Valentino patent peep toe shoes and Martin Katz jewelry.

Kenneth Cole Awearness & Feed Projects Celebrate The Feed Health Backpack, LA

Ali Larter looks outstandingly beautiful wearing a mint green Balenciaga Resort 2009 dress, with gold heels.

The look only needed a touch of pink gloss and a clutch to complete this elegant look.

“Sorority Row” Photocall, London

I’m loving Rumer Willis’ chic coral satin Zac Posen dress, but the heavy black Fendi shoes don’t work for me.

And how many times to I have to tell Rumer? You’re hair is so much better short and black.

Briana Evigan for me looked better than Rumer wearing her BCBG Max Azria colour block dress.

I just love the loud vibrant colours, which she paired down with grey heels.

Diesel Only The Brave, New York

Without commenting on the ‘Palmero’ hair style, I love and I dislike Olivia Palermo’s look in equal measures.

You can tell a lot of time and thought went into it as she paired her red and white stripy Diesel dress, with a white shirt accented with a navy bow and a necklace. She didn’t really need the necklace.

The look is completed with the dreaded ankle boot and a cute quilted Chanel purse.

Michelle Trachtenberg’s wore in white Alice + Olivia tank top with an interesting detailed neckline paired with skinny black jeans and two-tone Giuseppe Zanotti Ver blush patent sandal.

The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, New York

Sienna Miller was still on a fashionable roll when she made an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” yesterday.

The stylish actress wore a purple Brian Reyes Resort 2010 tank drape dress, with black pumps and decorated the neckline with a stunning gold necklace.

Another stunning dress to add to Sienna’s Fashion Week poll.

Supperclub And Instyle Dinner Party, LA

It’s bad enough that Jessica Capshaw’s Giambattista Valli Spring 2009 dress was shortened and de-ruffled, but to wear those taupe pumps with this gorgeous white and pink floral dress is just unforgivable.

Malin Akerman’s Alice + Olivia draped dress is so versatile you could dress is up for an event like this, or dress it down to go shopping with your friends at the mall.

Her look is paired with neutral accessory’s which complement her dress.

Although I’m not a fan of wearing more than one denim piece at a time, I’ll give Lynn Collins kudos for finally getting her hair situation and head wear fascination under control.

The actress wore a stone Topshop denim dress with a light-wash denim jacket and an awesome pair of open-toe booties.

NBC And Universal’s 2009 TCA Press Tour All-Star Party, LA

Mary McCormack looks outstanding wearing a Giambattista Valli red dress with a knotted rosette detail on the hip.

The dress shows off her stunning figure, which she pairs with YSL Trib Two’s and a black clutch.

I love how she’s styled her hair.

Michelle Trachtenberg nude dress plus her nude heels really wash her out.

“It’s On With Alexa Chung, New York

As much as this look brings Sienna Miller’s fabulous week to a crashing halt, you only have to look in Topshop and H&M to see how on-trend she is.

It’s not my style, but she makes it work for her.

I’m still waiting to see if Sienna wears anything else tonight, but her Fashion Week poll will be posted tomorrow.

Despite being embroiled in another nude scandal, Vanessa Hudgens was all smiles made her way to Alexa Chung’s MTV show this week.

The star looked cute wearing a purple ruffled dress with a pair of Report Signature ‘Downey’ heels.

By the time she had left, she had changed into an oversized shirt dress, which she belted and paired with Pour La Victoire Pascale High Heel Huarache Sandals.

I wonder if she will still make it to the Teen Choice Awards this weekend.

Ischia Global Film & Music Fest 2009, Italy

Elsa Pataky always seems to be in couture weather it’s Elie Saab or Armani Privé.

On this occasion she wore an open back Armani Privé Spring 2009 dress with the beautiful web-like embroidered detail.

2009 Giffoni Film Festival, Italy

Eva Mendes was the epitome of summer chic wearing a Tibi Fall 2009 belted floral print maxi dress with Samantha Willis jewels and Stuart Weitzman “Alex” crochet espadrilles.

Da Silvano Restaurant, New York

Rihanna was out to lunch in New York where she was spotted showing off her new mohawk.

She’s clipped the sides and back of her head, leaving the top untouched. She rocks it well, but it’s a look I’ll never copy.

Rihanna isn’t shy as she has been wearing very revealing clothing lately.

I think this is the 4th time I’ve seen her bra through the sheer tops she loves to wear.

This time she wore a sheer top over a striped bikini with a pair of skinny ankle zip jeans.

She completed her look with Maison Martin Margiela shoe boots and a Nina Ricci bag.

“Charlotte Russe Fall 2009 Launch Event”

Jessica Szohr is fast becoming a red carpet regular. This time she was wearing a two-tone Charlotte Russe playsuit which showed off her toned legs.

She completed her look with beautiful black strappy sandals, a large statement necklace and a maroon clutch.

Michelle Trachtenberg’s black dress is so so, but I love her Giuseppe Zanotti clutch with multi-coloured stars and her electric blue ankle boots.

I can’t really fault Rumer Willis’ look.

Yes it’s all black and verging on dull, but at least the fit is right and she doesn’t look awkward.

Her look is paired with Christian Louboutin Paquita sandals and a black D&G clutch.

Casio Exilim MOBILE NYC Launch, New York

For once Taylor Momsen isn’t dressed like a Guns n’ Roses groupie, but her eye make-up is too heavy for that cute white dress she is wearing

Stella McCartney Presents New Collection At The Corner Berlin, Germany

Cool and chic as always Stella McCartney presented her new collection in Berlin wearing a Resort 2010 black cropped jacket, a white half tucked in tee and ombre ankle jeans from her own collection.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Anna Paquin channeled her inner geisha girl wearing this black figure-hugging dress Alexander McQueen dress with Jimmy Choo heels and a chic updo.

It’s On With Alexa Chung, New York

What’s with everyone wearing leather this summer?

We first had Chloe Sevigny wearing a leather jumpsuit this week, and now we have Ashley Greene wearing leather shorts.

The “Twilight” actress wore them with her cute floral Escada blouse to the MTV Studios this week.

Her sassy look was complete with sexy strappy sandals and a Gucci Hysteria bag.

Worst Dress Award
We’ve seen this Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2009 dress on Anne Hathaway and a sequined version on Amber Valletta. Both were beautifully styled.

Fabiola Beracasa decided to wear her blue snake-skin dress with a feathered concoction to add more dimension to her look, plus suede purple booties and a crazy updo.

Not a good look. In fact she looks quite scary.

You Can’t Wear Those Boots With That Dress Award
What was Agyness Deyn thinking?

She was wearing a pretty nude covered in gold sequined Anna Sui dress but it all falls apart the second she opted for those Marc by Marc Jacobs biker boots.

And just to stick a further nail in the coffin, she opted to wear a leather biker jacket.

I hate this schizophrenic style off dressing. You’re either wearing a cute sequined dress with strappy heels, or you’re a biker chick.

Pick a lane and stay in it.

This really hurts as I love Lake Bell.

Just a tiny pop of colour – even red lips – would have made a huge bit of different in this head-to-toe Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 look.

Looking as somber as she does doesn’t quite help either, plus I feel like ripping those sleeves off.

Nice Dress But…Award
Olivia Palermo wore a beautiful David Meister pink satin dress with an embellished panel on the bodice, and a peplum on the waist, but I’m perplexed as to why she would want to wear this kind of dress when she clearly doesn’t have the bust for it.

She looks like a child playing dress up in mummy’s clothes.

I’m thankful that she decided not to wear her favourite YSL Tribute sandals, instead she wore Topshop Passion Frill sandals.

Now would she please…oh please change that hairstyle.

Worst Posing Award
I couldn’t much focus on Tallulah Willis’ Calvin Klein Resort 2010 off-the-shoulder dress, because all I kept thinking about was pulling her shoulders back.

Bad posture just throws me.

Balmain With Tights Again? *eye roll* Award
I know I’m going to get lynched for this, but I just don’t understand Julia Restoin-Roitfeld’s obsession with wearing such short Balmain dresses then opting for tights.

The archetypal Balmain girl doesn’t wear tights imo. She has the confidence to walk tall in her mini dress, bold and sassy.

That being said I do love her black sequined dress and the Jessica Rabbit silhouette it gives her, but I think less bold runway version would have suited her better.

Fails To Flatter Award
Michelle Trachtenberg wore a very unflattering Behnaz Sarafpour Resort 2009 ensemble. She used to get it right all the time now she’s very inconsistent.
