62nd Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards – Cocktail Dresses

The 62nd Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards took place in LA yesterday, with many stars opting to go short.

Miranda Cosgrove of course went short.

The teen star opted for an adorable Marchesa silver embroidered strapless mini dress which she wore with our second ‘favourite’ red carpet heels – the Casadei triple platform pumps.

A two-tone Genevieve Jones clutch completed the look.

Mel B looked beautiful wearing a black silk strapless WTB Fall 2010 dress with leather peplum.

Mel continued the black theme pairing her dress with a black clutch and black peep-toes.

I’m hot just looking at her.

WTB is designed by designer/musician Nikki Lund and Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora. The collection premiered during LA Fashion Week back in March.

It’s a tad unfortunate that Mary Lynn Rajskub’s strapless BCBG Max Azria dress looks a little too tight on the bust, because her dress with the frothy tiered ruffled skirt is gorgeous and perfect for red carpet on a gloriously sunny day.

Chelsea Staub also opted for a cute frothy look.

Her BCBG Max Azria strapless pleated dress was worn with matching pumps.

I love the pop of colour via her red clutch.

Wanda Sykes opted for a autumn plum sparkler which she teamed with a silver Judith Leiber clutch and matching peep-toes.

Kristin Chenoweth looked gorgeous wearing a custom Matthew Christopher blue strapless dress with silver embellished details.

Silver Jimmy Choo heels complemented her mini.

Who Wore Alice + Olivia Better? Whitney Port, Miranda Cosgrove or Brooklyn Decker

Whitney Port was papped shopping in New York City wearing an Alice + Oliva sequin top.

Her look was also paired with Current/Elliott boyfriend jeans, a Valentino 360 studded bag and Loeffler Randall heels.

Miranda Cosgrove wore her stripes with black pants and biker boots to the “Frank and Derol” gig in West Hollywood early last month.

And finally Brooklyn Decker, Model and wife of Andy Roddick, showed she has great style by pairing her top with a khaki skirt and leopard print heels.

Brooklyn wins for me because her look effortless compared to Whitney, and closer to my personal style than Miranda’s.

This Alice + Oliva sequin top is available from Net-A-Porter.com, Shopbop.com and Bloomingdales.

“Despicable Me” LA Premiere – Miranda Cosgrove In Versus

Miranda Cosgrove proves that she loves the Versus Fall 2010 collection.

Her first look was at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, the second at the “Despicable Me” LA Premiere this weekend.

When I look at this, it’s clear that her Versus Fall 2010 black pleated skirt and plum velvet top was deliberately picked as not to clash with the yellow red carpet.

Had she worn the red or blue dresses from this collection the contrast would’ve been too harsh.

So no grumblings from me about another black summer dress on this occasion.

This look is cute without being too sweet, and grown up without looking like Miley Cyrus.

Christian Louboutin Georgineta heels and Neil Lane jewels complete the look.

2010 MTV Movie Awards – Miranda Cosgrove In Versus

Best Mini Award
Whilst Christina Aguilera wore an impressive Atelier Versace dress to the 2010 MTV Movie Awards last night, Miranda Cosgrove opted for a look from its baby sister Versus.

The 17 year old actress wore a red Versus Fall 2010 dress which was as vibrant in colour, as it was interesting in style.

Her red v-neck dress with velvet panels maybe too much for some of you on a hot summers day in LA, but I think stars should try to do something different at MTV Awards ceremonies.

You can save florals for Premiere’s and Gala’s.

2010 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards – Miranda Cosgrove In Christian Siriano

Falling Perfectly Award
Miranda Cosgrove opted for an autumn plum colour on the red carpet at the 2010 Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards yesterday.

She wore a Christian Siriano Fall 2010 dress, which is based on the runway version recently presented.

I think her asymmetrical tiered version was the perfect choice for her. The runway version may have been slightly overwhelming for her with that big floppy bow detail.

I can picture someone like Renee Zellweger wearing the runway version.

The teen actress paired her gorgeous dress with Christian Louboutin Numero Prive glitter slingbacks and Neil Lane jewels.

Earlier this week Shaun asked, “Why are celebrities and stylist rotating clothing so quickly as they’re already wearing Fall 2010?”

Although I often question why when we have so many Spring 2010 pieces we’d like to see on the red carpet, I do like to see the odd Fall piece, especially when it’s an exclusive piece like this.

I think it keeps the red carpet interesting, especially as we’re seeing so many repeat looks.

2009 MTV Europe Music Awards

Joint Best Dressed Award
This Atelier Versace Fall 2009 strapless gown was made for a body like Beyonce Knowles’.

The colour is absolutely divine on her, the sheen of the dress really pops, the bodice has an strong warrior feel to it which would’ve been the desired look for the independent woman.

I love how this gown skims her hip, and I’m pleasantly surprised at the lack of bling.

I would’ve preferred her hair pulled back, but now I’m just looking for flaws in an otherwise flawless red carpet look for B.

Joint Best Dressed Award
Trying to pick who was Best Dressed out of Beyonce and Katy Perry, was like a mother being asked to pick her favourite child.

How do you choose?

Both are wearing my favourite designers, plus they are both wearing my favourite looks from the respective collections, and both have bodies to die for.

Normally Katy wows us in a different way in eccentric Manish Arora pieces, but this time she wows us by looking so graceful in a nude one shoulder Marchesa Spring 2010 draped tulle strapless gown with embroidered black floral.

A very pleasant surprise indeed.

If there’s any room, both are up for BDOTW.

Most Sexy Award
Whilst stars like Katy Perry and Beyonce were wearing stunning – should’ve been saved for the Oscars – gowns, Shakira opted for shimmering silver ultra mini dress which left very little to the imagination.

I wonder if this dress was custom-made by Donatella Versace because the Sharika is wearing Versace Spring 2010 heels with her look.

De Ja Vu Award
Asia Argento wears an asymmetrical Sophia Kokosalaki Fall 2009 black and gold beaded dress which will give you a strong sense of de ja vu.

This is because she wore a very similar dress on the Italian version of X Factor last week.

I must preferred the previous look. This doesn’t feel as well put together.

Surprisingly Not Predictable Award
When I learned that Leona Lewis was attending this show I assumed she would wear something quite boring, but I was wrong.

Normally we see calf-length dresses, tights and no personality.

Not only is she giving us plenty of personality, but she’s also looking very sexy in her corseted look which includes black sequin harem pants and black vest Vivienne Westwood ensemble.

I can’t believe I just said harem pants are sexy, but Leona makes them work.

Normally I would complain about the two-tone hair, but it all adds to the fierce attitude of this look.

Her coral lips are divine.  I wish I could get away with that shade.

On Trend Award
Normally I find it hard to say anything nice about Joss Stone, but I really like her look.

It’s young, fun, on trend with the Over-The-Knee boots, plus I love how her super glossy hair is swept to one side.

Most Disappointed Award
Normally Pixie Lott is a lot more creative on the red carpet.

She normally brings colour and vibrancy, to this occasion her D&G black ruffled dress is nice but I know she can deliver more.

Not More Ankle Boots On The Red Carpet Award
Miranda Cosgrove was the teen star of the night working Alexander McQueen ankle boot with a black and blue harlequin dress.

Worst Dressed Award
“Hey girl, don’t you think my outfit is fly?”

No.  We don’t Lil Kim.

Two words spring to mind. Hot Mess.

You’ll be surprised to know that this is it.

I can’t believe that such a big ceremony pull in so few stars.
