Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Natasha Bedingfield In Emerson - 2013 Grammy Awards

Natasha Bedingfield wowed on the red carpet at the Grammy Awards at the Los Angeles Staples Center on Sunday night.

The singer stunned in a lace red gown from Emerson Spring 2013.

The modern cut fit the singer beautifully, giving off an elegant yet cool vibe with sexy cutouts on the side.

The singer went almost head-to-toe in red, pairing the dress with scarlet satin heels and kept the look punchy with Marina B jewels and a gold belt and clutch.

I think Natasha nailed the look, combining red carpet elegance with a rock ‘n roll style that speaks to the Grammy Awards nature. Do you agree?

This weekend in Norway the Smith family were the hosts of the Nobel Peace Prize Concert honouring President Obama.

What a truly genetically blessed family they are, from Will Smith to Willow Smith.

Although I’m devastated that her parents thought it was a good idea to shave half of her hair.

The boys wore velvet suits, whilst the girls wore gowns.

Willow wore a cute white and black gown, whilst Mummy – Jada Pinkett-Smith looked stunning wearing a burnt orange J.Mendel Fall 2009 gown with a classy updo.

I love how Jada styled her gown, which was presented as a one-shoulder gown on the runway.

Her version was less sexy and more appropriate for the occasion.

Natasha Bedingfield was one of the many performers at this concert.

She opted for an electric blue Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 criss cross halter dress paired with silver heels.

Norway’s Crown Princess Mette-Marit enjoyed the concert looking beautiful wearing a maroon Prada dress which Reese Witherspoon wore in black back in March.

Worst Dressed/Who Keeps Inviting You? Award
The AMAs took place last night in LA, and my first question is who keeps inviting Bai Ling to these red carpet events?

This flamenco-style dress is wrong on so many levels, plus the hair, the make-up and that one glove is just ridiculous.

What The…? Award
Colbie Caillat wears the strangest dress I have even seen on the red carpet – excluding Bjork’s swan dress.

Is it an embellished grass dress or a velvet green embellished dress? I am genuinely confused.

Most Ill-Fitting/Worst Brit Award
We have seen a lot of celebrities on the red carpet don suits and work the masculine trend.

Natasha Bedingfield totally fails to make it work in this ill-fitting white suit, which looks two sized too big for her.

The beauty of the masculine trend is to wear suits that flatter the woman’s shape, so Natasha fails miserably here.

Most Disappointing Award
I really tried but I just don’t like Ashley Tisdale Philosophy Fall 2008, strapless dress.

For me it’s the exposed tulle skirt that ruins this dress.

I really expected better from her.

Worst Hair Award
I am not quite ready to get over Rihanna’s disastrous new hair do.

Had she opted for a more masculine look, maybe she could have worked the red carpet better.

This Zac Posen Spring 2009 cream layered dress with an asymmetric hem, is a beautiful dress, but not the right choice for Ri Ri.

Worst Badass Chick Award
Tattoo artist Kat Von D opted for a maxi dress which exposed all her tattoos. Not being a fan of body art, this look does not work for me.

Worst Hair/Make-Up/Dress Award
The only thing working for me on Toccara Jones here, is her red shoes. The rest is a disaster, especially the hair and make-up.

I will assume she does not have a mirror in her home.

Most Dangerous Ensemble Award
This is the ensemble that she should have worn on the red carpet, as it more fitting to her image, but it looks so scary.

You wouldn’t want to get too close, as you could hurt yourself on one of those spikes.

Worst Couple Award
Like groups, I like it when couples are co-ordinated on the red carpet. Jada Pinkett-Smith and Will Smith do this so well, as do the Beckhams, without necessarily wearing the same colours.

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo look like the bumped into each other on the red carpet and posed together. I do not feel any cohesion in their look at all.

The only thing I am in love with here are Vanessa’s Jimmy Choo Atlas patent sandals, as the plunging sheer front panel of her dress screams the ice skater.

Worst Fancy Dress Award
Every event I ask the same question.

Why oh why does Lil Mama get invited to these events?

And the question is more urgent here, because this a FASHION event, and she has neither any style nor taste.

Worst Dressed Award
The attention seeker that is Solange Knowles, wore this bold grey Armani Privé Spring 2008 dress with a feathered bolero for one reason and one reason only, to scream LOOK AT ME.

We are looking honey, and we don’t like what we see, as it screams desperation.

What Happened To Your Innocence? Award
Are you as horrified as I am looking at 15 year old Taylor Momsen channeling heroin chic?

I am hating myself for loving her dress, which she accessorizes with Burberry bangles, but the make-up and the look in her eyes turns me cold.

Most Disappointing Award
I really hurts to put Leighton Meester on this list, but I really don’t like the colour combinations on her Missoni Resort 2009 colour-block dress, nor her hairstyle.

What The…? Award
I hate to use the drag queen comparison again to reference Tyra Banks, but in this case it is very apt.

What is with the make-up and that waxed facial expression?

Most Malnourished Award
Lydia Hearst needs to eat a Happy Meal, because girlfriends BMI is definitely under 18.

The cut out only emphasis her tiny frame.



Worst Look Book Award

Fergie is head to toe in the Gucci Fall 2008 collection. The folklore inspired blouse, the belt and the shoes combo, just look like it was picked from Look Book.

I do not feel that Fergie made this her own, as it feels very contrived.

Worst Use of Colour Award
Mary J Blige is hardly ever on my worst dressed list, but on this occasion I will have to say that I really don’t like the colour wash on this blue and white Roberto Cavalli halter-neck gown.

Worst Embellishments Award
Miley Cyrus sheer silver Zuhair Murad sequined mini dress with a matching bodysuit is typically over the top.

Worst Hair/Dress Combo Award
Natasha Bedingfield’s hair is so P!nk, like 5 years ago, and the dress is incredibly unflattering.

Most Underdressed Award
I would guess that Vanessa Carlton does not have a stylist, because no self respecting stylist would allow her to leave her house wearing this grey tank dress, with knee-length tights and booties.

Most Incredibly Boring Award
On such a fashionable night, why did Ana Ortiz choose such a boring plain black dress?

Worst Theme Award
It’s always good as a group to appear united and coordinated. It was a great idea to all dress in sari’s, but it only works on the three from the left, Jessica Sutta, Ashley Roberts and Nicole Scherzinger.

There is too much exposure for this traditional attire, but that is too be expected from PCD.

Best Dressed Award
Fergie was amazing last night. This is truly the best I have ever seen her. She was glowing in her newly-engaged bliss, wearing a canary yellow Calvin Klein strapless gown with Cartier diamonds that completed the look.

Does anyone else think that her lady lumps appear to be slightly bigger?

Risk That Paid Off Award
Rihanna has been sporting a few looks that have not worked best in her favour, but this one did.

It is not an easy dress by Zac Posen to pull off with its feathers, ruffles and folds, but she worked it out.

I was not liking the neon nail polish though.

Most Improved Award
This weekend Natasha Bedingfield sported some hair and make-up disasters, but she pulled together for the Grammys, wearing this stunning lavender Reem Acra Spring 2008 strapless belted gown.

Best Floral Award
I loved this Zuhair Murad Spring 2008 gown. Carrie Underwood was bang on trend with the florals, but was slightly underwhelmed by her hair. Carrie has great hair, but on this occasion it fell a little flat in comparison to her hair at the Pre-Grammy’s Party.

Best Embellishments Award
Corinne Bailey Rae could not look more bored at this event, but I just loved her Luella Spring 2008 dress which was mostly made up of blue poppies.

Best Rock Chick Award
I LOVED Cyndi Lauper last night. She was full of energy and enthusiasm, unlike a lot of her contemporaries.

For 54 years young, this woman looked amazing. I am glad she is still as effervescent as ever.

Best Black Award
Faith Hill always looks amazing and elegant, and did not disappoint wearing a Valentino Spring 2008 one-shouldered gown.

Best Teen Award
Miley Cyrus is showing that she can look grown up and cute all at the same time wearing this white layered Celine Spring 2007 mini dress with Sergio Rossi sequined heels.

Best Over 50 Award
Yes Natalie Cole is over 50 and looks amazing in this printed dress.

Best On Stage Ensemble
Beyonce looked amazing rocking out in a very obviously lip-syned performance in this modified Armani Privé Fall 2007 Couture ensemble.
