Nicollette Sheridan In Versace – The Foundation Polo Challenge

Nicollette Sheridan attended The Foundation Polo Challenge at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club in California yesterday afternoon, which was attended by Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William.

The former Desperate Housewives star wore a Versace Spring 2011 fitted dress.

Her white cotton-piqué dress with nude patent trims was paired with an oversized hat, nude peep-toes and a Gucci bag.

Nicollette has never been credited with much taste or style, but on this occasion she manages to look event appropriate, tasteful plus she accessorized her dress really well.

A surprising thumbs up from me.

01.05.09 Premiere

“Star Trek” LA Premiere

The little goosebumps going up my arm, are a clear indication that Zoe Saldana will a be contender for Best Dressed Of The Week.

What’s that 3 weeks in a row? Girlfriend is on fire.

Her long sleeved Emilio Pucci Fall 2009 sequined mini dress, with a snake-like silver detail running through it, lacey cut outs, plus the first way she is posing, ensured that no one was going to upstage her on her night.

If you have a shoe fetish, I suggest you don’t look at her outstanding Brian Atwood Wicked heels, from the Fall 2009 collection.

Very wicked indeed.

Once you’ve scrolled down, one thing will stand out, Michelle Monaghan.

This is because she opted for a neon pink Versace Fall 2009 long-sleeved dress, when most others opted for black.

I love the colour, her fresh face, and her clutch. I wouldn’t have picked those black strappy sandals, but she makes them work.

Leighton Meester gave her lighter locks their red carpet debut last night.

The Gossip Girl actress wowed the crowds in a mini slate grey YSL bow back dress. The dress kinda look a tad tight, but I just love the 3 bows fastened across the back.

Her head-to-toe YSL Spring 2009 look was complete with YSL cage ankle boots.

I have the feeling that Heidi Klum is going take maternity chic to another level.

The stylist mum-to-be, wore a black flapper-style Jasmine di Milo fringed dress, which covered her growing baby bump, with black Louboutin’s, and Martin Katz jewels.

Even though Nicollette Sheridan is on trend wearing the much loved Christian Louboutin Differa sandals, why does her look seems so out-dated?

Amanda Bynes has been beamed back to 2007, when it was hot to wear a coral Hervé Léger mini bandage dress, with YSL Tribute sandals.

Geez, even Heidi Montag would frown at this look.

I’m not sure what Kristin Cavallari actually does these days, but she sure made sure she would get some attention wearing a Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2009 multi-coral mini dress.

Christian Louboutin Catenita cork sandals, with a hot pink platform completed the look.

Sophia Bush completes the trio of Hervé Léger dresses on this red carpet, and I can’t help but feel a tiny bit disappointed.

Not because of her Hervé Léger Zebra stripe dress itself, because she looks lovely in it, but because it puts her in the same category as Amanda and Kristin.

Hayden Panettiere’s looks very grown up in her black figure-hugging black pencil dress with cut-outs on the side.

I’m glad she added those bubblegum pink Louboutin’s, otherwise I may have disliked this look.

Winona Ryder makes a very rare appearance on the red carpet, channeling her usual Gothic chic, in a lacey full-skirted black dress.

26.01.09 Worst Dressed

2009 SAG Awards – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
I would really like to know what was going on in America Ferrera’s mind when she picked this Vera Wang gown.

The colour surprisingly washed her out, the draping on the hips is extremely unflattering, and the black tulle pieces that criss-crosses across her bodice was just annoying and only added to the overall disappointment of this gown.

Deja Vu Award
Penelope Cruz fails again with the same hairstyle as the Golden Globe Awards, and another dress that fails to wow me despite being by Azzedine Alaia.

Most Underwhelming Award
Angelina Jolie, we get it. We get that fact that you would look great in a potato sack. We also get the fact that you don’t care about how you look on the red carpet, and that you no longer try.

But you could have nipped in this Max Azria Spring 2009 gown just a tad to give it some shape.

Oh and sweetie, you have the dress on back to front. It was presented as a plunge-neck dress.

Non Supporting Actress Award
Emily Blunt’s Pamella Roland Spring 2009 silver dress sparkled. It was gorgeous.

But the top half just was very uncomfortable to look at. I know it would have been impossible to wear a bra with dress, but the twins lacked support.

Most Disappointing Award
Kyra Sedgwick always looks spectacular every red carpet season. This season, I have not been swept off my feet by her.

This vintage Chanel dress was very ill fitting around the bust for me. Hopefully she will wow me at the Oscars.

I Should Be Thankful It’s Not Black But…Award
But Rosario Dawson doesn’t wear this pewter Dolce & Gabbana mermaid gown well, which is surprising for someone with her curves.

The dress is very fussy around the bust area, and has also been worn by another celebrity much better.

Worst White Award
There was a lot of white on the red carpet last night, but Olivia Wilde’s was the least flattering. Surprisingly it was a Ralph Lauren Spring 2009 gown.

Too Dark Award
I love the dramatic nature of this Carolina Herrera strapless gown that Marcia Cross is wearing. But I just think it was way too dark for her.

This would suit someone like Dita von Teese, who can wear dark Gothic type gowns with her pale skin.

Worst Desperate Housewives Star Award
Nicolette Sheridan wore a sea blue asymmetric Roberto Cavalli Resort 2009 dress. I like the dress, but there is something about Nicolette that cheapens the whole look for me.

Too Casual Award
Tina Fey wore a black strapless Brian Reyes dress, which is cute, but it would have been even cuter on Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens or someone else around that age group.

ELLE Magazine’s 15th Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute Red Carpet

Although I did not agree that Anne Hathaway was the Best Dressed star on the red carpet last week, I do agree that her style choices get better, less safe and less predictable.

The stunning actress wore this magnificent navy Marc Jacobs Spring 2009 short sleeved metallic red striped suit. She wore the dress with a metallic sash tied at the waist, and two-tone platform shoes.

She did not wear this suit as it appeared on the runway, so she completely made it her own.

Kerry Washington obviously had no time to go sight-seeing in Paris, were she attended the Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 collection, because within 48 hours she was already back in New York to attend this event.

The actress wore a blush pink and nude Calvin Klein Resort 2009 ribbed bandeau dress, with two-tone platform heels.

For me she was one of the best dressed at this event. STUNNING.

Nicole Kidman wore a forest green Prada Resort 2009 dress.

The satin dress was embellished with green jewels on the breast-bone and waist.

She completed her look bizarrely with pink heels, but it is better than safe black.

I absolutely adore Jenny McCarthy wearing this Gucci Fall 2008 dress.

The black drop waist dress with a velvet skirt and gold embellishments, is very much on the folkloric trend, with fringed shoulders and sash on the waist.

Jenny gets better and better on the red carpet.

Eva Mendes gives us her trademark pout wearing a sequined tunic dress with striped panels.

Jennifer Lopez kinda hits a bum note for me in this Dolce & Gabbana dress. Her sheer dress is so transparent that it reveals her bodysuit/spanx underneath.

Even her hair is a little off.

Kate Beckinsale is one of those actresses you don’t hear much about, but she always makes an great impact on the red carpet.

She does so here by wearing a stunning one-shoulder Derek Lam gown, which she make all the more elegant with her updo, Jimmy Choo clutch and gold earrings.

Model and current Calvin Klein poster boy, Gabriel Aubry escorted to gorgeous baby mama, Halle Berry to this event.

He look gorgeous, but then he always does. She looks gorgeous, but I am not at all crazy about her Roberto Cavalli ensemble.

It is not as classic, nor chic, as I have come to expect from Halle. To me this is something Kim Kardashian would wear.

Sorry Halle.

Only Angie Harmon can make a grey Dolce & Gabbana dress look this beautiful.

Katharine McPhee is gorgeous in a green Karen Zambos Baretta silk dress.

Isla Fisher shows off her post baby figure in this black cocktail dress.

Could Jane Fonda be more lovely?

Courteney Cox jazzed up her satin cobalt blue Alessandro Dell’Acqua dress, with an array of statement necklaces.

I adore the colour on her.

Nicollette Sheridan is really making an effort lately, and I think she look amazing in this LBD.

The former fiancée of Michael Bolton, has improved since the split, so I may just cautiously downgrade her on my Fashion Failures list.

Sigourney Weaver often struggles on the red carpet. She took a night of wearing her favoured designer, Prada to wear this green Bottega Veneta Fall 2008 dress, with an asymtetric draped neckline.

Simply stunning, Sheryl Crow.

22.09.08 Best Dressed

2008 Emmy Awards Red Carpet – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
Best Dressed was a close call between Brooke Shields and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, but Brooke’s fuchsia Badgley Mischka Resort 2009 gown, with its ruffled asymmetric detail on the skirt, was beautiful and had a very romantic feel to it

She let her dress do all the talking, by keeping the accessories to a minimum.

This is not an easy dress to pull off, but Brooke did with such style and grace.

Most Sexy Award
Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Narciso Rodriguez gown was elegant, with an added wow factor. I fell in love the second I saw it.

The salmon coloured dress suits her complexion, and dress gives her a very sensual silhouette.

The beaded bodice, and the keyhole detail make this dress stand out.

Her diamonds were from Tiffany’s.

White Hot Award
Kyra Sedgwick wore a magnificent L’Wren Scott Spring 2009 white cocktail dress, which had crystals embroidered into the straps and bodice of this dress, for added va-va-voom.

Kyra usually always wears L’Wren Scott, as the dresses are figure-flattering, sleek and chic.

She accessorized with Fred Leighton jewels, and Jimmy Choo sandals.

Best Strapless Award
A high profile red carpet event, is not complete without an Elie Saab dress.

I loved the Elie Saab Fall 2008 Couture embroidered tulle dress Marcia Cross wore last night. The dress had a vintage feel to it, which played on her classic beauty.

She accessorized with Rene Caovilla heels and Hearts on Fire diamonds.

Best Brand Ambassador Award
Tamara Mellon the CEO of Jimmy Choo, and the person responsible for relaunching Halston, is wearing both design here.

Her cobalt blue asymmetric dress is from the Halston Spring 2009 collection, her canary yellow shoes, and zebra print clutch are of course Jimmy Choo.

Best Earrings Award
Christina Applegate’s looked quite regal, as her hair was swept back, allowing us to see her stunning jeweled earrings.

The actress wore baby blue asymmetric Reem Acra Spring 2009 gown, with a gold print, and a stunning train.

She accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz diamonds and Jimmy Choo heels.

Best Silhouette Award
I don’t think Christina Hendricks’ forest green gown was corseted, but she certainly has a stunning silhouette here.

I am so jealous.

Green is a great colour for her, and it’s a colour we have seen other red heads wear on the red carpet.

Best Yellow Award
Mariska Hargitay’s Carolina Herrera one-shoulder gown stood out the most on the red carpet.

The colour was bold, vibrant and refreshing on the red carpet.

She accessorized with Fred Leighton jewelry and Jimmy Choo heels.

Most Elegant Award
Olivia Wilde always manages to look so stunning on the red carpet, and does so again in her Reem Acra gown.

The dress is exquisite with its simple details, and subtle shade, that evokes the glamour of old Hollywood.

She accessorized with Jimmy Choo heels, Stuart Weitzman clutch and Kwiat jewels.

Most Improved Award
Wow, you could have knocked me down with a feather when I saw how stunning Nicollette Sheridan looked in her purple pleated Angel Sanchez Fall 2008 gown.

What a great event for her to turn down the tacky.

I would have loved this look more, if her hair was put up in an elegant updo.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Hair Award
I adore this turquoise Calvin Klein strapless gown on Cynthia Nixon. It makes her appear soft, and it brings out the colour of her eyes.

My only compliant was her hair. It has a very mumsy feel to it.

Best Elie Saab Award
Lost actress Evangeline Lilly, has been missing from the red carpet for a while, so I had forgotten how stunning she can look.

Last night she wore one of my favourite dresses from the Elie Saab Fall 2008 Couture collection.

The paillette covered dress caught every beam of light, making this dress come alive with every step, as she posed on the red carpet.

Best Couture Award
This Armani Prive dress which Heidi Klum wore may not be appreciated by some because of the cape, but I simply adore it.

I love how the cape and the skirt’s asymmetric detail flowed in the same direction, and the Swarovski crystals that sparkled, as she did in the dress.

Best Black Award
Black can be very boring on the red carpet, but Debra Messing’s dramatic Monique Lhuillier Spring 2009 strapless gown, was far from boring.

The dress had lots of layers of embroidered tulle, which grabbed my attention, and really made her dress, stand out from the other black dresses on the carpet.

She accessorized with Fred Leighton diamonds.

Best Embellishment Award
Kate Walsh’s Zuhair Murad mermaid gown was tiered with embellished details, and completed with a rose appliqué. The stunning dress gave her a delightful silhouette.

The red haired actress carried a Jimmy Choo Kase oval clutch and wore Neil Lane diamonds to complete her look.

Best Floral Trend Award
Vanessa Williams’ custom-made Kevan Hall gown was very much still on this summers floral trend.

The jeweled detail on the strap of her dress, compliments her diamond bracelet and 3-drop earrings.

Best Lace Trend
Like Vanessa, Sandra Oh managed to incorporate a trend into her look – lace.

Her black silk organza and tulle Oscar de la Renta Resort 2009 gown, had a lace bodice, and a sash at the waist.

Her hair was swept to the side with loose curls.

She accessorized with Bulgari jewels, a vintage Chanel purse, and Chanel heels.

Best Dress/Clutch Combo Award
Some people might think it lacks imagination for matching items that you are wearing, but Tina Fey does it so well by matching this rich egglant David Meister sweetheart necklined gown, to her jeweld clutch.

Best Marchesa Gown
Jennifer Morrison’s Marchesa Spring 2009 gown was beautiful, as it had a princess quality to it, with its rich champagne colour, beautiful draping an train.

The colour was exquisite on the actress, which she matched with peep-toes heels.

Best Cocktail Dress Award
There were a lot of gowns and dresses that fell just below the knee last night, but Padma Lakshmi opted for a gold embellished Monique Lhuillier Spring 2009 knee-lenght dress.

The stand out dress, had a cowl back, swirling gold beaded embroidery detail and a tulle hem.

The presenter kept the gold theme going, but wearing gold strappy sandals and a gold clutch.

Brightest Smile Award
Kristin Chenoweth had the biggest and brightest smile, as she walked the red carpet last night.

The multi-talented star wore a black Armani Prive gown, which had a cute bow detail on the front.

As she walked the red carpet, I marveled at how her dress managed to stayed up.

Greatest Gainer Award
I started off disliking Jenna Fischer’s Gustavo Cadile custom-made gown, but then it grew on me when I saw it on TV.

These pictures do not do the green chiffon strapless sweetheart neckline gown justice.

Best Halter Award
I was also undecided about Perrey Reeves in this Temperley London gown with intricate detailing on the bodice and neckline. But after seeing so much black and other dark colours, I realised that her cream gown was a welcome relief.

Best One-Shoulder Gown
Jane Krakowski’s one shouldered Versace Fall 2008 gown, was very interesting, as the detail on the shoulder consisted of folds, cut-outs and beaded embroidery.

Best Vintage Award
Rachel Griffiths wore a chocolate brown vintage Bob Mackie gown from Decades.

This gown has a bustier top, with a chiffon skirt, which has a thigh-high peek-a-boo split.

The actress completes her look with Christian Louboutin shoes, and and Alexander Knight clutch.

28.01.08 Best Dressed

Screen Actors Guild Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award

Amanda Bynes on her first major awards ceremony stood out from all the other veterans wearing this gorgeous Marchesa 2008 Resort strapless embellished gown.

Love the hair, but might have been better pulled back.

Joint Best Colour Award

This strapless cobalt blue L’Wren Scott Spring 2008 gown on Kyra Sedgwick was pure perfection.

Kyra has an amazing body, and this dress showed it off.

Joint Best Colour Award

These pictures do not do Vanessa Williams bright canary yellow Escada gown any justice. I was more even more vivid on TV.

Everything here is perfect, excluding her tan lines.

Best Over 50 Award

Glenn Close is stunning. Amazing for her 60 years.

I wish Meryl Streep would dress like this on the red carpet.

Risk That Paid Off Award

I know most of you probably hated this dress on Sandra Oh, but I loved it.

She took a risk by not choosing a major well known designer, but for me it works.

I loved the bow and the colours.

Most Fashion Forward Award

None of the other ladies on the red carpet would have dared to wear this sculpted Nina Ricci Spring 2008 strapless gown, and that is why I love Ellen Pompeo.

Best Embellishments Award

Debra Messing in Oscar de la Renta Spring 2008 stepped away from her usual black and her usual Michael Kors.

I loved the embellishments on the dress the first time I saw it on the runway, but I never picture Debra wearing it, but she does pull it off.

Best Haute Couture Award

Despite not going to any of the Haute Couture Fashion Shows at Paris Fashion Week last week, Christina still managed to get this Elie Saab Fall 2007 gown.

In typical Elie Saab fashion, the gown is embellished and uber glamourous.

Best Red Carpet Pose Award

No one can do that “sticking your ass out, while looking over your shoulder seductively pose” quite like Eva Longoria. So it was no wonder she chose a sexy Naeem Khan Spring 2008 backless dress to show of her derrière.

I am glad that there are no bangs in sight, and I see that Eva continues to favour the curly do for red carpet appearances.

Joint Best Black Award

Sans her fiance Michael Bolton, Nicollette Sheridan was stunning on the red carpet last night wearing a black strapless Marchesa gown.

This is by far the best I have ever seen her look.

Joint Best Black Award

Ana Oritz was smokin’ hot in this Pamela Dennis black body hugging gown.

Best Arm Candy Award

Keisha Whittaker looked so cute wearing this bubble gum pink Jenny Packham Spring 2008 sweetheart necklined gown.

She is always the perfect accessory for Forest Whittaker.

Most Improved Award

Brittany Snow has had a very inconsistent red carpet of late, but she looks great here in this Zuhair Murad sequined gown.

Best Pre-Fall 2008 Dress Award

Most Pre-Fall 2008 dresses are not usually red carpet ready, but Teri Hatcher looks divine in this floral Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2008 fishtailed gown.

I laughed when she was interviewed and she said that the did not believe in botox.

Best White Award

Becki Newton is back to her best wearing an Elsie Katz Couture white sequined dress.

I particularly love the tiered skirt.

Best Jewels Award

I loved Sara Ramirez’ jewels by H. Stern and Bo Chic. Her earrings were a perfect compliment to her satin strapless fuschia Angel Sanchez Spring 2008 gown.

Meh…Just OK Award

Ashely Tisdale stood up well on such a big stage wearing this white Badgley Mischka Spring 2008 dress.

Back To Her Best Award

Marion Cotillard looks beautifully chic in this corseted, pleated, and gathered Nina Ricci Spring 2008 gown.



Best Hair Award

Marcia Cross is wearing a Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2008 teal gown. I think the colour works well with her red hair.

Best Colour Block Award

Jamie-Lynn Sigler is wearing an ensemble from Calvin Klein. The teal skirt is from the Calvin Klein Pre-Fall 2008 collection.
