Red Carpet Fashion Awards

With all due respect, Minnie Driver was one of those actresses I’d forgotten about.

In fact I can’t really recall a single dress she wore prior to the “Conviction” promo tour this year.

Whilst all eyes would’ve been on the main star of this movie, Hilary Swank, Minnie was making some impressive choices on the red carpet.

My favourite is still her Marchesa blue gown, but she also glowed in J. Mendel, Paul & Joe and Thomas Wylde.

Minnie Driver was M.I.A. for a long while on the red carpet. Now every time she steps out she’s looking absolutely fabulous.

Motherhood agrees with her.

The British actress was glowing on the red carpet for the “Barney’s Version” screening during AFI FEST 2010 this weekend.

She wore a J. Mendel strapless gown with a peplum at the waist.

I adore the colour with her dark brunette locks which she had up in a chic updo.

A gold clutch and rose gold jewels perfected this gorgeous look.

After the way Halle Berry wowed us in her stunning YSL gown this weekend, this look feels like she took a huge step back in this Kaufman Franco dress.

It’s not a bad dress in theory, but I feel totally indifferent to it on Halle as it looks like something Stephanie Pratt would wear.

Minnie Driver’s Paul & Joe Fall 2009 dress was far more interesting with the cape-like sleeves and embellished shoulder pads which complemented her black silk Brian Atwood ‘Randye’ sandals.

We have yet another Spring 2011 first.

Milla Jovovich wore a Temperley London Spring 2011 orange draped gown which looks much better in orange.

She’s totally loving this gown by the way she’s working it.

Mila Kunis looked much better on this occasion wearing a Monique Lhuillier black strapless asymmetrically draped dress.

It’s sticking to her favoured colour, but at least it has plenty of life and doesn’t make her look frumpy.

Brian Atwood black pumps completed her look.

“Winter’s Bone” actress Jennifer Lawrence wore a simple Thakoon Resort 2011 strapless white dress with a shimmering clutch.

I feel like I’ve been in love with Diane Lane all my life, but only I seem to be aging.

On Friday prior to their London premiere both Minnie Driver and Hilary Swank attended at photocall for their new movie “Conviction”.

Minnie wore a sexy mini leather dress with a knot detail at the waist which she paired with black Jimmy Choo “Java” sandals.

Hilary opted for something less sexy wearing a forest green Lanvin chiffon dress which has sequined detailing and a black ribbon tied to the waist.

Her look was paired with Michael Kors gold sandals.

In my haste to get my weekend started last night, I didn’t see the pictures of Minnie Driver at the 2010 London Film Festival premiere for “Conviction” until this morning.

My jaw dropped to the floor as Minnie looks stunning wearing a Marchesa Resort 2011 gown.

Her cerulean blue draped chiffon column gown has a beautiful Egyptian embroidered collar and a wrap around detail at the waist.

I’m glad she only opted to use the black and not the gold.

I also love that she hid the black straps we see on the runway under her collar making her gown a halter gown.

This is how you modify a look from the runway for the better – take note Katie Holmes and Kerry Washington.

Yes I’m gushing over this look as Minnie has never looked more radiant.

I wish I’d seen this last night, but seeing Minnie now would you have voted her as your BDOTW?
