Red Carpet Fashion Awards

The FiFi Awards, is fragrance industry’s equivalent to the Oscars, where Paris Hilton was honoured with “Female Celebrity Fragrance of the Year” award last night.

This is the first time in a long time that I love what Paris is wearing.

Out goes the billowing dresses, and jeweled headbands, and in comes this Georges Chakra Fall 2009 Couture purple dress, with draping, navy bows and jewel encrusted details.

She completes the look with her favourite Gina heels.

Who would have thought Queen Latifah and Paris Hilton, would share the same taste in designer?

Queen Latifah befit her regal name, by looking breath-taking wearing a charcoal grey lame dress, from Georges Chakras’ Fall 2009 ready-to-wear collection.

I love the sleeve that drapes over her shoulder, and the smokey eyes.

Along with Paris, she is up for Best Dressed of The Week.

Senior Vice President & Creative Director of Estee Lauder, Aerin Lauder, opted for a blue Lanvin leopard print dress.

This is not an easy look too pull off, but I would have worn it without the belt.

Mary J Blige wore a watercolour print Roberto Cavalli maxi dress, with the signature gold serpent.

Her gold drop, emerald stone earrings, complemented the look perfectly.

Hilary Rhoda wore a beige strapless fitted Jacques Fath dress, with a peplum at the waist, plus an origami pleated detailing trimming the neckline.

As much as I love her dress, I also love her gold chandelier earrings, and her black Jimmy Choo strappy sandals.

Unfortunately Kate Walsh’s look is really not working for me.

Not the lurex pink Hugo Boss dress, nor the hairstyle.

Many stars attended the Mardan Palace Hotel opening in Turkey, which is Europe’s most expensive luxury resort.

Mariah Carey was one of the performers on the night.  She arrived on the red carpet, wearing a green striped Roberto Cavalli plunging gown.

Cavalli signature gold serpent seems to under a lot of pressure, keeping Mariah’s gown together.

I only say this because I’m jealous.

Monica Bellucci shows off her enviable figure, wearing a beautiful fishtail blush pink lace gown.

I like that she kept her make-up light and luminous, to complement her gown.

Paris Hilton gave us a twirl Рas she so often does Рshowing us the full capacity of her fuchsia pink Canker Ka̤ar gown.

She glows in pink, and I much prefer this gown to the Basil Soda gown she wore to the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Benefit.

Sharon Stone continues to keep tackiness at bay, wearing a stunning Roberto Cavalli black strapless gown, with a feathered skirt.

Creating a sensation at the charity benefit, Diane Kruger looked outstanding in a white Chanel Spring 2009 Couture ensemble.

For me it doesn’t have the same impact as her Marchesa gown which made my heart melt, but she still looks amazing.

I love the square shouldered cropped jacket, the cute black bow – which we know she loves – and the interesting shaped skirt, which reveals a lace lining.

A bejeweled clutch and Louboutin’s complete the look.

With so many great dresses this week, would it be fair to include both Diane’s looks in Best Dressed of the Week?

Only Dita von Teese can get away with wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2009 Couture dress, with a transparent skirt revealing her garter.

That’s because she oozes class and chic sophistication.

I’m much more inspired by her in this dress than her previous Dior Couture dress.

I love Marion Cotillard, and her association with Dior is a match made in heaven but I would have loved something more dramatic from her.

Her pale blue Christian Dior Fall 2009 embroidered gown is gorgeous, as it brightens up her complexion.

You know saying, “Take one thing off before you leave the house”?

Well Paris Hilton should have taken off 3.

The headband, the necklace and the bracelet.

Her Basil Soda Spring 2009 Couture gown is already dripping with embellishments around the waist, that she needn’t have over cooked it.

This gown is quite dark and dramatic for Paris. I’m surprised she didn’t pick something more sugary.

Donatella Versace’s modification on her Versace Fall 2009 cornflower blue gown are very subtle.

I prefer her softer blue strapless gown.

The bodice is longer plus her gown has a fuller skirt.

I’m a constant admirer of how immaculate she always looks.

Michelle Yeoh opted for a purple satin Atelier Versace Fall 2008 gown with ruffled details on the shoulders and an open back.

She kept her jewelery minimal, with a few diamonds on the bracelet and earrings.

All my diva’s are going red.

First Coco Rocha, now Eva Green.

Is red the new black?

I’ve love Eva since she first stepped on the red carpet. She’s such a daredevil when it come to fashion. But on this occasion not so much.

Don’t get me wrong, I love her fuschia pink Christian Dior Fall 2009 Indian inspired gown with intricate embroidered details, but if ever their was someone to wear one of Dior’s Spring 2009 Couture ball gowns on the red carpet, this was our girl.

Elsa Pataky’s Armani Prive Fall 2008 black and white striped strapless gown may look a bit tame from the front, but that’s because all the drama is at the back, as it gathers then falls to a fishtail hem.

There would have been no prizes for guessing that Eva Herzigova would wear Dolce & Gabbana to this event. Much like her supermodel chum Claudia Schiffer.

Her Spring 2009 corseted red dress, had more sass than the runway version.

Hers was strapless and shorter to show off those impossibly long legs.

As much as Lily Cole is wearing a beautiful Emilio Pucci Fall 2009 strapless gown, she fails to excite.

Many of you have remarked that you would love for Georgina Chapman to modify her gowns, to make herself more individual, and stand out from the runway and her clients like Donatella Versace.

Unfortunately she didn’t hear your pleas on this occasion, because she wore a gold lame Marchesa Spring 2009 asymmetrical gown as it was presented on the runway plus the gold Louboutin’s.

Whatever the weather, she always looks outstanding, and here is no exception.

It feels strange calling anything by Chanel casual, but Anna Mouglalis’ blood red Chanel Cruise 2010 satin dress, feels too casual for such an event.

Kudos to her for wearing a piece from this collection, which was only presented last Thursday.

Margherita Missoni represented her family brand in the way she always does, with style and grace.

Her lurex silvery blue Missoni Spring 2009 gown, with a gold waistband, is a modification of the strapless jumpsuit which was presented on the runway.

Her added gold jewelery, and a matching mini clutch were the perfect touches for added glamour.

L’Oreal girl Kerry Washington takes the baton for the final leg of Cannes Film Festival, after Elizabeth Banks, Aishwarya Rai, Eva Longoria, and Evangeline Lilly represented the brand before her.

Kerry is a vision, as always wearing a strapless deco beaded Marchesa gown paired with a gold Bally box clutch.

Hayden Panettiere arrived at this event wearing a gorgeous blush silk chiffon Marchesa dress with similar silver embroidered details to Diane Kruger’s Marchesa gown.

I love the dress, but even in this picture it feels like the falling train is in the way.

Prior to this event you would have seen Hayden sunbathing on a yacht, relaxing with friends and topping up her tan.

Unfortunately it’s left unsightly tan lines.

I’m loving the vacation glow, but a hint of lippy would have worked wonders.

Zoe Saldana opted for a nude dress with a gathered detail on the hip, whilst she paired her look with copper accessories.

Sharon Stone has never looked better, but next time she should consider tanning her legs, before opting for a thigh high split. Her arm appears to be a different shade to her legs.

Despite all that the annual host for this event look magnificent wearing an asymmetrical Dior gown, with silver strappy Dior heels.

Claudia Schiffer stays faithful to her boys Dolce & Gabbana, wearing this tulle black bustier gown.

You’ll be happy to see that she’s keeping the bangs for now.

Zhang Ziyi’s ethereal nude gown is so delicious on her. The colour is exquisite complimenting her skin tone.

Her hair was pulled back off her face to reveal a long earring, and a diamond stud. How very 80s Janet Jackson.

I’m not quite getting the wow factor from Carine Roitfeld, which I got last year, but she still looks fantastic wearing this white Givenchy Couture gown.

I’m wondering has anyone ever seen her with her hair up?

Rinko Kikuchi wears a grey ruffled Chanel Fall 2008 Couture dress with really heavy clunky heels.

Shu Qi wears my least favourite gown of her Cannes experience.

All good runs come to a crashing end.

Case in point Robin Wright Penn in this charcoal spaghetti strapped gown.

“Inglourious Basterds” Premiere

I can’t believe I missed this one yesterday.

Isabelle Huppert must have stunned the crowds arriving in a Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 LBD, which some may mistake as a bin liner.

I said from the very first day, when the judges were unveiled that she was the feisty one of the group.

Some of her choices – especially this one – prove that.

This is a tough dress to pull off, but I think she does as she has the right attitude.

Her dress was worn with black velvet heels from the same collection.

“Broken Embraces” Photo Call

Penelope Cruz and director Pedro Almodovar arrived at the photocall glued to the hip, as always.

He wore a Missoni sweater, whilst she wore a figure-hugging, nude Dolce & Gabbana strapless dress, which were paired with matching peep-toes.

For those who were speculating that she’s pregnant, I’m not so sure.

“Paris, Not France” Cocktail Party

Despite not seeming to have anything to promote at Cannes, Paris Hilton is determined to be the belle of the ball.

At a cocktail party thrown in her honour, she showed off her billowing Roberto Cavalli floral chiffon maxi dress.

She wasn’t content with the dress being enough of a statement, she also added a diamante headband, a huge silver necklace, and multiple bracelets to complete her look.

She is obsessed with headbands at the moment.

“Inglourious Basterds” Photo Call

Diane Kruger wore a simple strapless vintage Chanel LBD to this photocall with black peep-toes.

“Wild Grass” Premiere

We have seen many re-runs at Cannes Film Festival, but not by the same person.

Carine Roitfeld wears the same Balmain Spring 2009 ensemble, she wore to an event back in September.

I guess she is saving the wow factor for tonight’s amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Benefit.

Anne Consigny wears a fruity Valentino Spring 2009 Couture sleeveless dress with a floral detail hem.

Dita von Teese looked as cute as a button wearing a blue Alexis Mabille Fall 2008 Couture strapless knee-length dress.

I love the lacy frilled neckline and hem, but I also loved this on Keira Knightley, when she first wore it last year.

Paris Hilton would have turned heads in a long white toga style Dsquared² Spring 2009 dress, with a huge split up the side.

She continued her love for head bands, wearing a gold one to match her heels and clutch.

The runway strappy heels looked much better with the dress.

Peaches Geldof dressed to impress, wearing a pink dress with a long purple blazer.

She did try for a sophisticated look, but those tattoos on her legs really turn me off.

BritWeek’s Designer Of The Year Fashion Show

Dita von Teese’s Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 ensemble, doesn’t have the same charm as Becki Newton’s last week.

Something is not quiet working for me, and I can’t decide whether it’s the shorts, or the hair.

Her look was teamed with stunning black/gold jewels, a metallic rosette, and Dolce & Gabbana satin wedge sandals.

So close. I was so close to loving this Todd Lynn Spring 2009 look on Rumer Willis, but was not sure about the shorts. Then it turns out that she’s not wearing shorts, but a very smartly tailored all in one.

I do love the dove grey tuxedo jacket with the wide lapels top half, and the fact that she wore it without a top underneath, but nil points for the bottom half.

Her hair is looking much better now though.

Lynn Collins also wore Todd Lynn. Her look was from his Fall 2008 collection, which included a white tuxedo jacket with 2 black buttons, and black pants from the same collection.

She completed her look with a pair of Christian Louboutin for Todd Lynn heels, with a hair weft weaved into the back.

I’m really enjoying seeing Lynn on the red carpet. She hasn’t played the safe card yet.

“Cutlass” Screening, New York

Kate Hudson is the producer/director of the short film Cutlass.

Glamour magazine threw a celebratory party this weekend for the film, in which Kate arrived looking quite spectacular wearing a Stella McCartney black velvet devoree dress, with black peep-toes, whilst flashing a peace-sign and a megawatt smile.

17th Annual Kennedy Center Spring Gala

LeAnn Rimes opted for this eggplant Stella McCartney strapless dress from the designers Spring 2009 collection.

Lavender suede Louboutin’s complete this cute look, but that berry shade of lipstick doesn’t do her any favours.

Barnstable Brown Party Celebrating The 135th Kentucky Derby

Brooke Shields’ white strapless Angel Sanchez Spring 2009 gown, with black ribbon details on the front is gorgeous, but I can’t help wishing she had done something more with her hair.

Paris Hilton walked the red carpet wearing a figure-hugging Tadashi black lace dress, with an eye-catching Charlotte Russe feathered cocktail headband, and Trib Two’s.

Her other accessory was her boyf, Doug Reinhardt. They’re inseparable at the moment.

The Rally for Kids with Cancer Scavenger Cup – “The Winner’s Circle” Gala Dinner, LA

Eva Longoria continued to show her support for this event, by attending the gala dinner wearing a mocha Halston Spring 2009 strapless jumpsuit.

I love what she is wearing, plus the hair and the make-up, but I have a huge bug-bear about clothes dragging on the floor like this.
