Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Thakoon

Ciara was easily one of my favourites at Fashion Week.

She looked so beautiful wearing a Thakoon wool crepe shift dress which had a contrast black chiffon lining and trim, paired with Louboutin pumps.

Donna Karan

Milla Jovovich’s striped Donna Karan Resort 2009 dress is so chic paired with silver pumps.

Altuzarra

I guess Altuzarra weren’t loaning out clothes for their star guests because Leighton Meester wore an eggplant Emilio de la Morena Fall 2009 dress with Proenza Schouler lace-up ankle boots…

…whilst Rachel McAdams wore a navy and white striped Boy by Band of Outsiders Spring 2010 skirt with a black top.

Charlotte Ronson

Jessica Stroup wore a flirty floral Charlotte Ronson Spring 2010 strapless dress which is so exclusive it wasn’t even seen in the Spring 2010 presentation.

She paired her dress with snake-skin strappy sandals.

Marc Jacobs

Lady GaGa wears the same Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 black cap sleeved dress embellished with jeweled stones, which Miss Piggy wore recently.

I wonder who the winner of that WWIB poll will be?

Tommy Hilfiger

I just love this red dress which Taylor Swift pairs with Stuart Weitzman black bow heels.

So vibrant.

Preen

Becki Newton wore a Preen Mixed Mono dress under a black blazer.

I would’ve loved to have seen this dress without the blazer to see more of its multi-print panel design.

Proenza Schouler

Leighton Meester doesn’t look to happy in her Proenza Schouler Resort 2010 ensemble and I don’t blame her.

Max Azria

Lucy Liu was elegant and classy as always wearing a cream fitted Max Azria dress.

Maggie Q’s Max Azria vibrant yellow dress really pops on her.

I love how she brings this strapless draped dress to life.

Milla Jovovich shimmered in a Roberto Cavalli Resort 2009 mini flapper dress, when she walked the red carpet at ”The Cavalli Card Party” during Fall 2009 Milan Fashion Week back in March.

The actress paired her look with a leather jacket and black pumps.

Paris Hilton arrived at the MTV screening of her “Paris, Not France” documentary in California late July.

Paris sparkled from head-to-toe pairing her dress with her favourite Le Silla shoes, plus some stunning jewels including a diamond bracelet and diamond earrings.

I’m so tired of people toughening up pretty dresses, so Paris wins for me.

Milla Jovovich loves to dress sexy.

She’s never had a problem showing off her super fit toned body, but for the LA premiere of her latest movie “A Perfect Getaway” she was uncharacteristically covered up.

The actress walked the red carpet wearing a stunning Temperley London Spring 2009 white gown with yellow and silver beaded detail on the shoulders and on the empire waist.

Her look was completed with Christian Dior heels, a diamond bracelet, a silver clutch and a gold necklace.

I was loving the look until I saw the gold necklace. There’s just no need for it as the embellishments on the gown are enough.

I’m also not a fan of mixing gold and silver together.

The Costume Institute Gala was bigger than the Oscars in terms of pictures, but I was determined to find Oluchi Onweagba, after Dominika was disappointed I didn’t feature her the first time around.

Dominka I promised you, if I’d found these pictures yesterday, I wouldn’t have left Oluchi out intentionally. Talk about goddess.

The gorgeous model is simply breath-taking in her black and white Oscar de la Renta Fall 2009 gown.

January Jones was also a golden girl wearing a Michael Kors metallic long sleeved shift dress.

I’m getting a early Sienna Miller hippy 60s chic vibe from this look.

Anna Friel goes way too short in a sassy lace strapless bustier dress, with strappy black sandals.

She’s a little too naked for this type of event imo.

Rosario Dawson wore a bubble-gum pink Diane von Furstenberg strapless ruched gown.

I love colour, but I’m not getting much va va voom from her, just like I didn’t get it from Eva Mendes.

Arriving on the arm of the designer herself, Elizabeth Banks looked fantastic in an Alberta Ferretti mini dress.

I love the cut with its plunging black sequined neckline, with the navy embellished skirt.

Short, sassy and sweet, that best describes Milla Jovovich as she arrived wearing a chartreuse mini Marni Fall 2009 dress, with an embroidered beaded neckline.

Taupe peep-toes from the same collection completed the look.

Hilary Swank wore a Calvin Klein burnt orange dress. What I like about this dress is the gathered details.

Hilary is such a blank canvas, you can give her almost anything and she would pull it off, so I would have preferred her in something a lot more interesting.

I still swoon when I think about her wearing that stunning Givenchy Couture lilac dress to Fashion Rocks last year.

Cheryl Tiegs looked outstanding and graceful wearing a midnight blue vintage Norman Norell sequined covered strapless gown.

Her accessories included vintage Neil Lane jewelr, and a vintage Judith Leiber minaudiere.

The legendary supermodel showed the new breed what style and class is all about.

RUINED, Ruined, ruined. I can never look at this Chloe Spring 2009 dress with any type of love or affection since it has been worn by Aubrey O’Day.

I refused to love anything she has worn, even if she did wear it in a pretty peachy colour.

She should have strapped her breast down, or worn the dress with the runway belt, then maybe the dress wouldn’t have been bunch up around her breasts, making the dress look incredibly awkward.

*crys – Whhhyyyeeee*

Jenny McCartney does her best to erase the previous image from my mind, by looking gorgeous in a tropical print Gucci Spring 2009 mini dress, worn with a taupe leather wrap around tie-belt.

Her hair is not rocking my world, but her Gucci Spring 2009 platform heels are.

With her blunt bob, Paris Hilton wears a fuchsia pink dress, which is structured to give her more hips.

The star wears her Santino Rice dress with her favourite silver Gina pumps, and her very favourite Christian Louboutin Maykimay clutch.

Rachel Zoe sure does love her flowing gowns. This grey chiffon Notte by Marchesa gown, has wonderful gold embellished neckline.

I must say she’s really looking good these days.

I nearly fell off my chair when I saw Shanna Moakler wearing this strapless Oscar de la Renta black silk faille Shibori dress from the Spring 2009 collection.

Don’t get me wrong she looks fantastic in the black and white dress, but it’s not a brand I would’ve thought she would wear.

I like it when celebs surprise me on the red carpet.

Bethenny Frankel wore a the dove grey gown version of the RM by Roland Mouret Moon dress, we were drooling over 2 years ago, when it was first worn by Victoria Beckham.

She does look amazing in this gown. The beauty of Roland Mouret’s work is that it’s timeless.

Chelsea Handler is not one I would normally watch on the red carpet, but I love her Dolce & Gabbana bustier tulip dress, and matching gold Mary Norton clutch.

What lets her down – I’m sure you’ll agree – is her hair.

From the D List, to this so called A List event, Kathy Griffin for once looks outstanding in her black sequined dress. I’m sure she opened her mouth and ruined everything, but in pictures she looks great.

Kelly Rowland’s electric blue Issa plunge front dress is right on trend, but that curly ‘do is bringing back painful jheri curl memories.

After her maroon Prada gown from a few weeks ago, Milla Jovovich appears to have fallen in love with the colour, as she wore a maroon dress again for this event.

Gold accessories were the perfect touch, to add more warmth to this look.

Kim Kardashian wears a very sexy black velvet Thierry Mugler dress with black accessories, including a black Mary Norton clutch.

The dress really does stand out, and gives her a great silhouette, but my problem is that this dress feels to serious for such a light-hearted event. She should have saved this for a more worthy event.

Wearing waaaayyy too much foundation, Khloe Kardashian wears a multi-coloured belt with her LBD. The only thing I like here are her nude accessories, as you know they are very on trend.

Celebs sure do love Dolce & Gabbana’s white bustier dresses. This is the second one of the weekend. First the gown version was worn by Marisa Miller at the CMAs, now Padma Lakshmi.
