2010 Golden Globe Awards – Press Room

Now this is more like it.

I adore Nicole Kidman’s ivory Nina Ricci Spring 2010 bias dress with delicately placed bows.

This look is so refreshing from all the fitted dresses she’s been wearing recently.

I love the colour, her side swept bun and she appears to be make-up malfunction free.

The pictures of Mo’Nique on the red carpet weren’t very flattering as she was holding the gown by her knees to keep the hem dry, but in the press room we got at better look at her.

The ‘Best Supporting Actress’ Golden Globe winner looked sensational wearing strapless gold Reem Acra custom-made gown.

I like that she kept the neck bare as a large necklace may have over shadowed her beautiful yet simple gown.

Surprisingly I don’t hate Jennifer Aniston in this black Valentino Pre-Fall 2010 gown.

Maybe it’s because of the sexy thigh-high split, or the confidence oozing out of her, or that sultry (for her) make-up or maybe it’s the sleep deprivation kicking.

Whilst I like the dress, heels and make-up, I’m still begging for a hairstyle change.  Just a pony or updo will suffice.

Julianna Margulies was also a winner on the night, collecting the award for ‘Best Actress in a Drama’ for her role in “The Good Wife”.

She opted for an interesting Narciso Rodriguez black gown with a blood red shimmering asymmetrical bodice.

It been a long time since I was excited about Kate Winslet on the red carpet.

That midnight blue YSL gown is a great colour for her and the cut flatters her figure so beautifully.

The gown is accented with a pearl and crystal embroidery detail.

Great Kate is back.

Halle Berry wore a Kaufman Franco black silk bias cut gown with lace inserts.

She looked gorgeous but it’s the same plunging neckline and silhouette we’ve seen a million times before.

So whilst I like it, I’m also incredibly bored by it.

US Weekly’s Hot Hollywood 2009

I’m not so crazy about Kristin Cavallari’s hair and make-up, but I did like her ensemble.

‘The Hills’ star wore a black Dolce & Gabbana bustier paired with a Chanel belt and a 3.1 Phillip Lim zipper skirt from the Spring 2009 collection.

Stephanie Pratt sparkled wearing a blue sequined French Connection dress which makes her baby blues pop.

She paired her stunning dress with a navy blue clutch and YSL Trib Two’s.

This has to be one of Stephanie’s best red carpet looks. She really stepping things and becoming more polished.

After a few red carpet appearance sans tights Leona Lewis wears them on this occasion.

The star opted for a colourful sequined Catherine Malandrino skirt which she paired with a black top and Vivienne Westwood lilac Lady Dragon heart slingbacks.

I’m not at all fond of this look and its the top that’s at fault.

Everything else feels so well thought out, but the top feels like it was thrown on at the last minute.

After a summer flirtation with being blonde, Audrina Patridge returns to her luscious brunette locks.

The reality tv star wore a silver Rachel Roy dress and grey YSL Trib Two slingback heels.

I love the way the pockets drape which adds plenty of flair to this Rachel Rachel Roy number.

She look so beautiful.

Monique Coleman opted for a bold chartreuse colour which she loved showing off on this red carpet.

Whitney Port still hasn’t worn her Whitney Eve Spring 2010 collection.  Maybe she’s just waiting for Spring to arrive before she starts wearing it.

Instead she wore a delicate vintage dress paired with Guiseppe Zanotti gold heels to this event.

Like Stephanie, Karina Smirnoff also wore a French Connection dress, but hers was classic black with a asymmetrical front ruffle to add a bit of flair.

What I love most about this look is Karina’s Miu Miu heels which are to die for.

“This Is It” LA Premiere

It was a windy and rainy night in LA yesterday, but the Queen of the wind machine didn’t have a problem.

Jennifer Lopez looks stunning as ever wearing black Herve Leger beaded bandage dress paired with the same Herve Leger slouchy boots with a chain detail from the runway and a large black clutch.

Paula Abdul didn’t get the ‘wear black memo’, as she proudly walked the red carpet wearing a cobalt blue Temperley London Spring 2009 strapless Grecian dress with a embellished bodice.

Her dress was paired with pink Louboutin’s and a silver clutch.

I make that 2 for 2 for Paula, she’s having an amazing week despite the slightly squashed twins.

Vivica A Fox opted for a one-shouldered Balmain LBD with a silver panel, paired with Balenciaga Fall 2008 which celebrities fell in love with a year ago.

Paris Hilton channeled her inner Liz Hurley and brought a bit of fun to this red carpet by arriving wearing vintage Gianni Versace safety pin dress.

It’s not like Paris to cover up her legs, but like I said before it was a cold night in LA so she paired her dress with black tights and black Louboutin ankle boots.

Jennifer Love Hewitt and Comedian Jamie Kennedy arrived wearing jeans and Michael Jackson tees.

Ashley Tisdale paired a gold studded skirt with a Michael Jackson tee and Louboutin ankle boots.

Monique Coleman looked very grown up wearing a black leather Kova & T bustier dress paired with studded sandals.

I love her hair here.

Katy Perry arrived wearing a vintage Christian Lacroix gown which felt a bit OTT for this event considering some came in graphic tees.

01.06.09 Best Dressed

2009 MTV Movie Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
This is the impact I wanted Cameron Diaz to make, but instead that honour goes to Sienna Miller.

I love the sea green colour of her Swarovski-encrusted Twenty8Twelve Fall 2009 dress.

The length is perfect to show off her pins, and the shoulder pads are subtle enough not to draw any Balmain comparisons.

The Brit actress carried a silvery Chanel clutch, and wore pair gorgeous Nicholas Kirkwood gold heels, to complete this stunning look.

I Don’t Follow Red Carpet Rules Award
If we expected Kristen Stewart to wear a cute pink mini dress, with silver strappy sandals, we were wrong.

She hit the red carpet wearing a Yigal Azrouël Fall 2009 red and black dress, with a cross cross detail on the sheer yoke, and a wide black belt.

I can imagine her being wrestled into this dress, and her stylist compromising on the Converse sneakers, but she totally rocks this look.

Best Black Award
Leighton Meester took a risk at the Costume Institute Gala, which didn’t pay off for me, but this edgy cut-out Emilio De La Morena Spring 2009 dress totally works.

This interesting dress has peek-a-boo parts, sheer panels, folds, and cut-outs, which Blair Waldorf wouldn’t approve of, but totally love.

She completes her look with Brian Atwood Brie purple suede ankle boots.

Risk That Paid Off Award
Taraji P. Henson certain got into the spirit of this fun awards ceremony, wearing a black and white strapless printed Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 bustier dress.

The part French maid, part Chinese porcelain inspired look is definitely daring, and with her fun-loving personality she totally pulls it off.

I love how she plays up the ruffled detail on the back of her skirt, and her punky spiky new ‘do.

Moving Out Of Her Comfort Zone Award
This Moschino Fall 2009 red and navy floral print sleeveless dress with a ruffled hem, seems a little out of Lauren Conrad’s comfort-zone, which I really appreciate.

It feels a bit dark and mysterious, which is complemented with dark red lips, and black strappy booties.

I only wish she had pulled her hair back, to show off the floral shoulder detail.

Best Use Of Colour Award
I love to see bold bright colours on the red carpet, which is why I love Vanessa Hudgens peach satin Max Azria dress.

The dress is very grown up, but she injects her youthful glow and enthusiasm, to make this a perfect red carpet look, which she pairs with Jimmy Choo shoes, and a Nancy Gonzalez bronze clutch.

I really glad she didn’t go full on boho, with a printed maxi dress, which we’ve seen many times from her.

Hate The Hair, Love The Dress Award
I love Megan Fox’s black and gold Dolce & Gabbana strapless brocade cocktail dress, which she had shorten. It really suits her dark, mysterious persona, plus it shows off her toned figure.

She wisely kept accessories to a minimum, and added a bit of spice via her Christian Louboutin Differa sandals.

The biggest downsides are her hair, overly orange glow.

Best Theme Award
At first I hated Ashley Greene’s hair, but then I realised how much it worked with what appears to be a 40s housewife theme.

The hair works with her alluringly form-fitting Dolce & Gabbana floral print dress, with a beautiful, yet subtle voluminous skirt.

A neon yellow clutch, and bold red lips, add a touch of bright colour.

The Kate Beckinsale “This Is Not The Oscars” Award
I was really surprised to see LeAnn Rimes wearing such a formal gown by J.Mendel to the MTV Movie Awards.

She looks beautiful, she really does, but she’s a little overdressed.

Most Vanilla Award
Miley Cyrus opted for a very soft look for this event. I would’ve expected something with a lot more attitude, but she looks lovely in her pale pink cowl neck Moschino Cheap & Chic dress, which had a ruffled detail, going down her back.

The only hint of the wild rock wannabee Miley, was via her rings and bracelets.

Best Re-Run Award
I love Ashley Tisdale’s purple leather Elise Øverland dress, and the accessories she picked really punch up the look, especially those lust worthy Paul & Joe Sister heels.

We’ve seen this look before on the red carpet, but as Ashley wears it so well, that all is forgiven.

Surprisingly Not Predictable Award
I would have expected 3 things from Audrina Patridge.

1. Something low cut
2. Her black Alexander McQueen Bow Clutch
3. Her Balmain studded heels.

She blows that out of the water wearing a loose fitting paillette covered Joey Tierny Couture dress, with a dove grey Alexander McQueen clutch, and cream Louboutin heels.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Shoes Award
Keke Palmer’s look was almost perfect. I really loved her coral embellished Elise Øverland dress. It’s young, it’s fun, it sparkles, and it summery, but those grey booties lose her many points.

Stand Out Award
Malin Akerman stood out the most, because she is the only one who opted for pants, wearing a crisp, white Dolce & Gabbana suit, with a pale blue corset.

Her hair was sleeked back to complete this sophisticated look, which she didn’t over accessorize.

Most Summery Award
Yes Paris Hilton needs a new clutch and shoe combo, but there’s no denying her vibrant vest for spring and summery colours.

I love her cute coral Jenny Packham Spring 2009 strapless mini, with its ruffled skirt, and gold embroidered bodice.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun/Au Natural Award
Monique Coleman must have sensed when she looked in the mirror, that she would get ridiculed for her hair.  I admire her for ditching the extensions, and going au natural. I can’t see many others sporting this look.

Her Christian Louboutin Spartenvol Strass sandals complemented her silver and black spacey mini tutu dress, which you may all hate, but I will take this over a mini dress with tights any day.

She wanted to have fun at this event, and it shows.

2009 Noche De Ninos Gala

Jennifer Lopez smouldered in a curve-enhancing Temperley London teal jersey gown.

The gown had a cowl back, blouson sleeves, a ruched detail on the skirt, and floor-sweeping fishtail train.

I love the whole look especially the hair, and the smoky eyes.

Garcelle Beauvais is gorgeous, we all know that, but this is the first time in a long time I have been really wowed by her.

She always looks nice, but here she renews that girl crush I had on her many years ago. She looks incredibly glamourous here.

This makes two purple dresses in one weekend for singer Jewel.

First was her Tadashi Shoji mini to the Rock to Erase MS event, but for this occasion she wore a David Meister violet long flowing one-shouldered gown, which she also performed in.

Monique Coleman shows off her legs, this ice blue satin dress.

Lynda Lopez, Jennifer’s younger sister, and mother also attended this event.

Lynda looked stunning in a beige tiered halter gown, but I didn’t like her black platform heels with this light coloured gown.

15.04.09 Premiere

"17 Again" LA Premiere

Michelle Tractenberg appears to have attended the School of Overdressing, as taught by Kate Beckinsale, who’s former student included Emmy Rossum.

She looks great, don’t get me wrong. But this gorgeous eggplant strapless Marchesa dress with a bejeweled bow detail, is a classic case of right dress, wrong occasion.

One thing you can always predict, is that Amanda Bynes will be predictable on the red carpet.

LBD – Check.
YSL Trib Two’s – Check.
Never changing hairstyle – Check.

Allison Miller goes for a sweet, yet chic Brian Reyes Resort 2009 dress.

Her look was teamed with a Kara Ross clutch, Sergio Rossi metallic t-bar heels, and Ikat jewelry.

I was loving Monique Coleman’s look until I saw the wardrobe malfunction on the zipper of her pants.

Brittany Snow’s look has a spring-time feeling to it, with the pale yellow mini Erin Fetherston chiffon dress, and tie-dye cropped jacket, but the black strappy Jimmy Choo heels ruin this look for me.

Leslie Mann opted for an above-the-knee cream chiffon Zac Posen dress, with a cute ruffled neckline.

US Weekly’s 2008 Hot Hollywood Red Carpet

Becki Newton is having an amazing week.

First was her stunning cityscape printed Versace dress, now this cobalt blue YSL Spring 2008 dress. The black band further clinch in her waist on this electrifying dress.

She has been a slow burner on the red carpet, but now she is finding her a style that works best for her.

Ashley Tisdale wore a stunning asymmetrical navy and bronze coloured printed and embellished dress, which she wore with thin strapped black heels.

The darker hair, really makes her look more sophisticated.

She completed her look with Sergio Rossi shoes and a Stuart Weitzman clutch.

Monique Coleman opted for an Alexander McQueen LBD, which looked sexy, but elegant on the star.

Eve wore her own Fetish leggings with a Chanel embellished trimmed coat.

Breakout of the Year honoree Whitney Port, wore a Jean Paul Gautier vintage skirt, patterned tights and Steve Madden two-tone shoes with her ruffled top.

This is very much a look that I would expect from Whitney, and she works it so well.

Vanessa Hudgens wore a nude and silver embellished Kaufman Franco mini dress.

We get it Blake Lively, you are too hot to make the effort.

Country Queen of the Year honoree Miranda Lambert, opted for an uber sexy Blumarine Fall 2008 dress and Steve Madden shoes.

60th Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards Red Carpet

Chloë Sevigny is looking fabulously chic in blue sequined Preen Fall 2008 dress.

The eye catching dress has a detailed double layered bodice, and a gathered hem.

The actress completed her look with a gold clutch, and a pair of navy pumps.

Perfect as always.

Disney actress Ashley Tisdale looked very cute in her beaded Collette Dinnigan flapper-esqe dress, which she wore with matching strappy Stuart Weitzman heels, and a Mary Norton clutch.

I love the softly smoldering eye make-up.

Fellow Disney star Monique Coleman opted for this ruched strapless BCBG Max Azria dress, which has a contrasting crisscross bodice with sweetheart neck line.

I would not have picked this dress for Monique, but she makes it work.

I love her blue and diamante strappy Giuseppe Zanotti jewel drop sandals.

With her elegant updo, Sarah Chalke arrived on the red carpet looking stunning in her navy and white Monique Lhuillier Resort 2009 halter gown.

The actress accessorized with drop earrings and a silver clutch.

I love her make up. Flawless.

Lisa Edelstein also opted for an updo to show off her gorgeous chocolate sequined Pamella Roland Fall 2008 halter gown, with floral embroidery.

From the long shot, it looks like the embroidered part has a sheer panel.

Dancer Julianne Hough wore this white tiered BCBG Max Azria gown, which has a contrasting black rose appliqué on the empire waist.

She compliments the black rose, with a black satin clutch and a black pair of strappy sandals.

Sarah Silverman is very inconsistent on the red carpet. Sometimes it jeans and a blouse, sometimes it is a sexy D&G dress, but on this occasion she wanted to have fun, so she wore an ivory frilly dress.

Whether this was Sarah showing off her funny side or her feminine side, only she knows.

She completed her look with a cropped cardigan, backward heeled shoes and a Mary Norton clutch.

I am torn on Kaycee Stroh’s dress. I like that it is not a plain black dress, but I also feel that the embellishments are a little too much on the bodice.
