Red Carpet Fashion Awards

The 2010 Pride Of Britain Awards took place in London last night with a whole host of gorgeous UK stars in attendance.

Only 4 of stars of Girls Aloud took to the red carpet.

I guess Nadine “I think I’m better than Cheryl Cole, yet only sold 117 units of my song” Coyle was too red faced to show up.

Cheryl Cole continues to be in mourning wearing a black Helmut Lang crepe cutout maxi dress with a thigh-high split and Jimmy Choo heels.

Her bandmate Nicola Robert proved why she’s the UK’s ‘Fashionista of the Year’ arriving wearing a William Tempest Spring 2011 dress.

The nude ‘siren devore’ dress with sleeves was paired with clear glitter ankle strap heels and a black clutch.

Dannii Minogue was also the other star who stood out on this red carpet wearing a self designed strapless pleated dress from her Project D collection.

The dress is gorgeous, but that Mawi statement necklace is divine.

A Stephen Webster ring and Tabitha clutch complete her look.

Kelly Brook maybe wearing a gorgeous pink dress, but she’s totally lost her mojo. She no longer wows me like she used to.

Where’s the glamour Kell?

Coleen Rooney left her ‘two-timing Shrek faced’ husband at home to shine on the red carpet wearing a simple LBD from Littlewoods.

She punched up her look with Christian Louboutin Madame Butterfly leopard print pumps and a matching Louboutin clutch.

Kimberly Walsh looked stunning in a coral Issa strapless silk-crepe gown.

I don’t really care for Sarah Harding nor her nude lace dress.

I could’ve got on-board with Emma Bunton’s cape look had she ditched the gloves.

Patsy Kensit got my glamour memo by wearing a sexy strapless Dolce & Gabbana mermaid gown.

Patsy Kensit first wore this black and red feather Alexander McQueen gown back in September to the “TV Quick and TV Choice Awards” at the Dorchester Hotel in London.

I think that red really suits her colourings and this dress was made for a woman with curves, and this dress clings to Patsy in all the right places.

She wore a gorgeous gold clutch and a simple ring with her gown.

Eva Green wore this dress last month to the “British Independent Film Awards” in London.

I just love the way she’s worn her hair with this dress.

I also prefer Eva’s make up. This dress needs strong eyes and I love her lipstick too.

This a tough one as both look stunning but I think that Eva just wins for me.

What do you think?

Patsy Kensit was easily my Best Dressed at this event wearing a red and black feather print Alexander McQueen cowl neck gown.

If you look to your right, you will see that I loved this gown so much I added it to my favourites this week.

As with any McQueen piece, the gown has a dramatic print which is both seductive and haunting.

I can’t help wishing she saved this stunning gown for a grander occasion.

Billie Piper also looked fab – excluding the Alexa Chung two-tone hair.

Speaking of Alexa, this is very much a look that Alexa would have channeled pre-grubby chic.

I love the ivory blazer and studded sandals, which she pairs with black jeans.

Ex-Eastenders actress Gillian Taylforth has obviously been looking after herself, as she appears not to have aged since I last saw her on the BBC show 10 years ago.

Can you believe she’s 54?

She looks outstanding wearing a coral plunging gown.

Speaking of ex-soap stars  many others attended this event last night.

A red carpet event in London would not be complete without a Lipsy London dress, and ex-Coronation Street actress Angela Griffin was the one to provide that for us wearing an ivory Lipsy London strapless dress with bejeweled pockets.

Ex-Eastenders actress Lauren Crace wore a black strapless dress, with strappy sandals whilst carrying a Topshop floral glitter clutch.

Gemma Atkinson wore a red French Connection ribbon dress, which looks a lot like a Herve Leger bandage dress.

Whilst Michelle Collins opted for something more sophisticated wearing a lace mini cocktail dress.

Other stars included Emmerdale’s Emma Rigby wearing a blue harem pants jumpsuit accented with a black bow tie.

Keely Hawes brought the ankle boot with cute dress trend to the UK.

Eastenders actress Danniella Westbrook opted for a long-sleeved dress covered in multi-coloured paillettes which I love.

Nina Toussaint-White from Eastenders opted for a cute embellished baby-doll dress.

Ravashing In Red/Best Dressed Award
Patsy Kensit gives Louise Redknapp and Michelle Ryan a masterclass on how to wear a red gown.

The mermaid Dolce & Gabbana gown, with a pleated train, and floral corsage detail at the waist, was so exquisite that Patsy was Best Dressed at this event for me.

Best International Award - despite being born in the UK
Although Mischa Barton brought a touch of Hollywood to this UK awards do yesterday, she wore one of our London based designers.

Her floor-length long-sleeved gown was from the Osman Yousefzada Fall 2009 collection.

I love the gold turtle-neckline, but it would have been nice had she wore her hair back so we could have got the full effect of the detail.

Best Maternity Award
If I didn’t already know Tess Daly was pregnant, I would never have guessed.

Her 3.1 Phillip Lim ruffle-front shift dress, does a very good job of disguising her baby bump.

The radiant mum-to-be wore her dress with a black clutch, gold bangle, and tribal inspired Jimmy Choo Serena strappy sandals.

Best Use Of Accessories Award
Miranda Raison dove grey dress is gorgeous, but what I love about this look the most is the pink shimmering belt she paired with the dress. Without it, I think this dress would have looked so plain.

Best Embellishments Award
Hannah Murray grey tights work better with her Collette Dinnigan Fall 2008 silver dress with a feather detail on the skirt.

You may remember that Fearne Cotton wore this same dress to the National Television Awards last year.

On Trend Award
Liz McClarnon doesn’t usually do elegant, but that is how she presented herself yesterday in the colour of the season: nude.

Her asymmetrical gown, with pretty flower embellishment was definitely the right choice for her.

Best Use Of Colour Award
Davina Mccall wore a cobalt blue draped gown. I love the detail on the front, and how she didn’t over accessorize her look.

I love that she opted for a lilac clutch, instead of a predictable black clutch.

Sexy Back Award
The lace trend maybe over, but that didn’t stop Lisa Maxwell wearing this lace backless gown, with a bow detail on the front.

Summertime Floral Award
The way our British summer time is going; glorious sunshine yesterday, rain today. Lucy Benjamin did well to give her floral Matthew Williamson silk lamé dress an airing.

Lord knows when she’ll get to wear it again.

High Fashion Award
Jamie Winstone gave us some high-fashion wearing black Chanel Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with jeweled brooches, and strappy metallic sandals. Hot pink lips complete the look.

You’re Never Too Old To Be Fabulous Award
The grand dames of British Television were not to be out done by their younger counterparts.

Barbara Windsor and June Brown aka Peggy Mitchell and Dot Cotton from Eastenders, looked sensational. Barbara wore a black gown, with a sheer yoke, that tastefully shows off her cleavage.

For me June looks outstanding. First off, I LOVE her hair like this. Secondly her cream skirt suit with embellished jacket is sublime.
