Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Simply elegance was the winner this week, as you voted for Gillian Anderson who wore a white vintage Dior gown to InStyle Magazine’s 10th Anniversary Party.

It was the best she’s ever looked on the red carpet. Her beauty, much like those emerald Adler earrings, really shone through.

I went in the total opposite direction by voting for Nicki Minaj.

The singer donned an Oscar de la Renta Spring 2012 gown to the 2011 American Music Awards

Many of you wish she’d donned a black wig with this look. I’m glad she didn’t.

I love that she stayed true to herself wearing this sophisticated gown with her trademark pink wig whilst adding an edgy touch via her Alexander McQueen armour wedge sandals.

Nicki Minaj was spotted in the press room at the 2011 American Music Award which were held at the Nokia Theatre LA Live in California last night.

The singer is the first celebrity to wear a look from the Oscar de la Renta Spring 2012 collection. Yes, you read that right.

I’m not surprised considering the singer was front row at the designer’s show back in September.

The two-time winner looked stunning wearing an emerald silk-taffeta gown with black battenburg lace and broderie anglaise bodice.

I know many of you aren’t fans of the mullet dress or Nicki’s sense of style, but I think she surprisingly pulls off this glamorous look with some style. I can’t fault her.

The rise-and-fall hemline allows her Alexander McQueen armour wedge sandal to share the spotlight.

Pink spiral curls with a matching matte lip colour completed her look.

Nicki Minaj donned this baby-blue Mark Fast Spring 2011 jumpsuit when she took to the red carpet at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards back in May.

The singer added white strappy platform sandals and an attention-grabbing bubblegum-pink wig.

British singer Jessie J wore the very same jumpsuit last week for the ‘Demons Never Die’ London premiere.

She wore the jumpsuit with a nude t-shirt, a fur jacket, and comfortable gold brogues, having just had her foot cast removed.

Whilst the look is perfect for both singers’ eccentric style, Nicki wore it better.

The 2011 BET Awards was held at The Shrine Auditorium in LA yesterday.

Kerry Washington: The actress wore an acid green Michael Kors column gown. I love the colour which is perfect for this red carpet on a sunny day. With that in mind I have to ask, “why black pumps?” Gold strappy sandals would’ve worked so much better to complement her Kotur clutch, belt, gold Lana jewelry and the halter ring detail. I will never understand her decision to opt for black pumps on this occasion.

Keri Hilson: Whilst Kerry opted for a summery look, Keri’s had a Fall feel to it. The singer wore a bicolour Tibi purple and black strapless jumpsuit with black open-toe sandals. She accessorized with gold sculptural Ann Taylor cuffs, a Judith Leiber ‘Ridged Rectangle’ leopard printed haircalf minaudière, a Carla Amorim ring and a gold necklace with a green pendant.

Alicia Keys: The singer opted for zebra print Christian Louboutin Daffodil pumps to match her monochromatic Dolce & Gabbana look. Wilfredo Rosado fine jewelry and a fishtail plait completed her look.

Keke Palmer: I’m not quite sure how Mandalay continues to get away with ripping off other designers. Keke’s silver paneled dress is a total rip off from a Balmain Fall 2009 dress.

Kelly Rowland: The UK X Factor judge opted for a Notte by Marchesa fuchsia dress with a cascading ruffle detail which we’ve seen a few times on the red carpet. Her beautiful dress was paired with nude Jimmy Choo ‘Bisson’ heels.

Nicki Minaj: Of all looks at this event, Nicki was the one that made me itch the most. The singer wore a Mark Fast knit dress, with thick tights and black booties in that searing heat?
