Nelly Furtardo In Alberta Ferretti – 2012 Billboard Music Awards

The other person doing injustice to a great look on the white carpet at the MGM Grand Garden at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards held on Sunday night in Las Vegas, Nevada, was Nelly Furtardo.

The singer wore an Alberta Ferretti Spring 2012 dress.

Her white crocheted beaded dress was let down by some catastrophic styling.

Firstly, a black bra peeping over her white dress? Really?

The white beaded statement necklace competes with the dress, the dress makes her look boxy and the nude Brian Atwood shoes only get a pass because at this point I feel sorry for her because her stylist and her mirror let her down.

Her hair and makeup are beautiful, but those comical earrings would’ve served her better on an edgy ensemble.

It just wasn’t Nelly’s night.

Who Wore Hervé Léger by Max Azria Better? Lea Michele or Nelly Furtado

Back in April when Lea Michele was giving us JLo’s ‘sexy face’ everytime she hit the red carpet, she also smoldered wearing a Hervé Léger by Max Azria asymmetrical velour bandage dress from the Fall 2010 collection.

She wore her dress her then recently cut bangs and black peep-toes.

Nelly Furtado wore the same dress for her induction into the “Canada’s Walk Of Fame” at the Canon Theatre in Toronto, Canada on Saturday.

It should be the “walk of shame” because she looks terrible in this dress. It has to be one of her worst ever looks and she’s had a few stinkers.

Who wears a bandage dress with tights?

The dress make her appear wider than she is, and the fact that she has her hands placed in front of her in nearly every picture shows that she wasn’t that comfortable in the dress to begin with.

Lea wins by a long stretch.

Their dress is currently available to purchase from Net-A-Porter.com.

Runway To The 2009 Los Premios MTV Latin America Awards Stage

Nelly Furtado wore another studded beige look from Elie Saab’s Spring 2010 collection.

To perform her single “Mi Plan” she wore a chic fitted jacket encrusted in metallic sequins and coordinating draped mini skirt.

She paired her second look with the same peep-toe shoes from the red carpet and fishnet tights.

Nelly’s 3rd Elie Saab look of the night was a navy chiffon dress, with a pixelated printed strips.

The looked was slightly modified as Nelly’s dress has a draped neckline.  The dress was haltered on the runway.

Keeping the fishnet tights, Nelly this time wears platform strappy sandals.

This was my favourite Nelly/Elie look of the night despite her red carpet look being my favourite from the runway out of the 3 looks she wore.

Kelly Rowland hit her second bum notes of the night.

This time wearing a hideous Pam Hogg Fall 2009 gold, black and silver spandex jumpsuit.

I don’t know how anyone can look at themselves in the mirror wearing this monstrosity and say to themselves, “I rock in this look. It’s perfectly acceptable to be seen in public wearing this jumpsuit”.

No Rowland. Hell no.  Not even on stage. * shudders*

2009 Los Premios MTV Latin America Awards

Nelly Furtado was front row at Elie Saab’s recent Spring 2010 presentation in Paris.

She was obviously shopping for this event as she walked the red carpet wearing a beige Elie Saab Spring 2010 studded panel dress.

I loved the dress on the runway, but I would’ve loved Nelly’s look had she worn the runway leather strappy heels.

Alessandra Ambrosio this Balmain Fall 2008 dress was amazing the first time we saw it on Selita Ebanks.

We’ve since seen it on LaToya Luckett and Cheryl Cole.

I for one am so over this dress, that I can’t even appreciate how spectacular you look in it.

Sorry but there are a million and one other mini dresses you could have chosen to wow us in.

Ashley Tisdale seems to have changed direction from the rock chick look she was channeling for a while, back to wearing cute dresses again.

On this red carpet she wore a black twill and tulle Camilla & Marc Lotus dress.

She added a patent belt to add more texture to her cute mini dress, and her leopard print Louboutin heels hinted at her wild side.

Audrina Patridge showed off her tattooed back wearing a black backless mini Oday Shakar sparkling dress which she paired with Lanvin thigh-high boots.

Call me crazy, but I like this look.

Not many could get away with this look.

Many of you say that Taylor Swift always wears embellished dresses on the red carpet, and I would say the same for Miranda Cosgrove.

These shapeless embellished dresses she loves to wear on the red carpet, are all started to feel a bit samey.

Here she wears a Elise Overland dress, paired with Guiseppe Zanotti heels.

Paulina Rubio wore an Ina Soltani LBD accented with rosettes.

The dress is cute, but the black and silver ankle boots just ruin the look for me.

Kelly Rowland’s dress looks like a Bebe knock-off dress.

The only redeeming quality it has is making her legs look long and lean.

Kelly Osbourne was the surprise on this red carpet.

The UK TV star wore a plum mini D&G dress with voluminous skirt and shoulders, paired with a stunning glass Swarovski necklace and a sparkling Swarovski purple crystal clutch.

For some reason Selena Gomez didn’t walk the red carpet, but she was spotted backstage wearing a Paule Ka nude strapless dress with a sheer nude floor-length overlay.

More Elie Saab Spring 2010



This morning I woke up like a kid on Christmas Day, and my gift was to relive the Elie Saab Spring 2010 collection via Style.com.

Yesterday I gave you the video from the show, today the pictures.

As I said yesterday, each look was more spectacular than the previous.

Although I mentioned Beyonce yesterday, I would love to see someone statuesque like Tilda Swinton wearing the long pixelated print fitted gown.

Blake Lively could rock in the short asymmetrical print dress or the nude asymmetrical embellished mini and Thandie Newton in the plunging print mini.

The evening blue and nude gown I see on Penelope Cruz, and if Nicole Kidman could wear something other than what her stylist L’Wren Scott had created I would love to see her wearing the one-shouldered embellished gown.

I hope Rachel Zoe and all the other superstar stylists are selecting for their clients as I type.

Nelly Furtado looked gorgeous wearing a contouring dove grey wool crepe Elie Saab Fall 2009 dress.

Whilst Dita Von Teese looked ultra elegant in the front row wearing a chic black wool crepe fitted Elie Saab Fall 2009 dress, which has been modified from the runway.

2009 ALMA Awards

Best Dressed Award
It’s been a while but Selena Gomez finally wears something that I really love, as she had been dressed older than her teen years.

I adore her pink Tracy Reese Black Label gown, especially the cute petals adorning the bodice and shoulder.

It’s the perfect gown for her both the colour and style.

Best Spring 2010 Red Carpet Debut Award
Jordana Brewster picked a stunning gown from Reem Acra’s recently presented Spring 2010 collection.

The strapless draped canary yellow gown is such an ethereal colour which adds warmth of her skin.

Perfect choice for her.

Back to Black Award
After having a very brief flirtation as a blonde, Nelly Furtado goes back to her natural darker hair colour.

She looked stunning last night wearing Elie Saab Fall 2009 black halter-neck gown with contrasting lace panel for a provocative twist.

This is her second Elie Saab look in a row.

Slightly Disappointed, But I Do Like It Award
I expected a big gown from Eva Longoria on this red carpet, but I guess she was saving them for the show.

The host for the night opted for a strapless taupe paillette covered column Oscar de la Renta dress – which slightly squash the twins – paired taupe heels.

Her hair and neutral make-up are perfect for this look.

Best Non-Supported Actress Award

Jennifer Morrison should really have worn a bra with her Herve Leger cream gown, because the twins are looking a wee bit lopsided.

Once I got over that I could appreciated how stunning she looks.

She could have easily opted for a neutral make-up, but added a dash of red to the lips for a more sultry look.

Frizz Ease Award
Dania Ramirez’ also wore a canary yellow gown, but hers was by Pamella Roland.

I love the gown and the criss-crossing ruched detail on the bodice, but girlfriend needs some serum in her hair to control that frizz.

De Ja Vu Award
Jamie-Lynn Sigler wore a gown earlier this week in exactly the same colour, but this time her gown is strapless.

I’m more excited by the necklace than the gown.

Most Disappointing Award
Salma Hayek would normally proudly show-off the twins, wear a stunning gown, or do both.

This is not a look I would associate with Salma.

The shorter velvet deep lilac modified Bottega Veneta Fall 2009 dress is hideous and so over accessorized with the two necklaces and jewled headband.

YSL metallic Trib Two heels and a matching Bottega Veneta box clutch completes this terrible look.  I really hate it.

Worst Dressed Award
I was surprised Eva La Rue was wearing a Zuhair Murad gown, because this gown is very Las Vegas show girl to me.

From the colour to the embellished neckline, it just screams tacky.

What is it with the lack of support on this red carpet?

14.09.09 Best Dressed

2009 MTV Video Music Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
Taylor Swift looked so graceful on the red carpet wearing a Kaufman Franco Resort 2009 one shoulder draped nude silver sequin gown.

I know many of you are rolling your eyes and saying “Not another embellished red carpet dress”, but you can’t deny who stunning she was on the red carpet.

Red Carpet Rebel Award
Leighton Meester doesn’t know what ‘play it safe’ means, and I love her for constantly keeping things interesting.

The red carpet rebel wore an interesting white and grey sequin Christian Cota Fall 2009 dress with petal sleeves.

Crazy studded Giuseppe Zanotti fan cut-out boots, a Bottega Veneta clutch, and Cathy Waterman jewelry completed the look along with smoky eyes and a single bangle.

Most Improved Award
Maybe it’s because she stopped trying so hard, or maybe it’s because her sister looked so bad but I liked what Solange was wearing for a change.

Her Armand Basi One LBD with a interesting folded details doesn’t scream “attention” for once.

De Ju Vu Award
Katy Perry does look amazing wearing this Blonds Spring 2009 strapless spikey dress which has been modified from the runway, but I’ve seen so many variations of this corset on Rihanna, Britney and Fergie that I’m starting to get a bit bored of this look.

As if her dress didn’t sparkle enough she added JudeFrances jewelery to her look.

It’s A Bit Formal, But I Love It Award
Nelly Furtardo’s Elie Saab Fall 2009 sheath dress with an embellished neckline may seem to formal for the VMAs, but I absolutely love this dress.

It reminds me of the dress Kelly Osbourne wore to the GQ Awards last week.

Best Mini Dress Award
Rose Byrne was the biggest surprised on this red carpet, but she got into the spirit of the event by wearing a cute Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 black mini dress with a purple floral print.

Best Balmain Award
Shakira’s sexy look was more fitting to this Balmain Fall 2009 dress than Pink, even though most of us are not fans of the thigh-high boots trend.

Best LBD Award
Alicia Keys who I would’ve expected to wear something more colourful, opted for a black sequin Dolce & Gabbana dress with silver circle details.

A sliver clutch and multi-coloured heels complete the look.

Best Jumpsuit Award
After Amber Rose’s hideous jumpsuit Keri Hilson couldn’t do any worse.

She looked stunning wearing a sexy – yet not trashy -black plunging Charlotte Ronson Fall 2009 jumpsuit with embellished wide shoulders.

Davidelfin showed for the first time in Bryant Park this week. Amerie attended the show and obviously became a instant fan of the collection.

Best Use Of Colour Award
Whilst a lot of stars opted for black Amerie brought a burst of colour to the red carpet, wearing an aqua Davidelfin Spring 2010 mini dress which was just off the runway.

She paired her caped dress with black pigalles and an ankle accessory.

Most Predictable Award
I knew Alexa Chung was going to walk this red carpet wearing a cute dress with ankle boots. She didn’t let me down.

I hate the boots, but I can’t deny how cute her Luella Fall 2007 dress is.

Best High-Street Award
Lauren Bosworth’s may have only spent $268 on her black and white embroidered French Connection Damask dress but it was one of the best on this red carpet.

Neither Hate It, Nor Love It Award
I’m not a fan of Lady GaGa’s style by many means, but this was one of her finer moments.  Mostly because she was not exposing her derrière.

Her look was very theatrical with her gold Phantom of the Opera mask, tilted hat and feathered neck brace.

Under all that was a Jean Paul Gaultier black gown.
