Red Carpet Fashion 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.

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.

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*

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.

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.
