Paula Patton In Marchesa – 5th Annual ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon

Paula Patton’s long and winding road to red carpet redemption kick started at the 5th Annual ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon, held in Beverly Hills yesterday evening.

The hit-or-miss actress stumbled onto a rare hit wearing a white Marchesa cap-sleeve frock with silver embroidery along the bustline – I guess her stylist loves her again.

The glam look was accessorized with silver metallic Giuseppe Zanotti pointed toe pumps and a bright red lippie.

Paula really needed this hit because I had all but given up on her.

I’m also happy to report that she’s finaly dropped the standing on one leg pose.

Do you think she read my letter?

Paula Abdul In Balmain – “The X Factor” World Premiere

Paula Abdul attended the “The X-Factor” World Premiere which was held at the ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome in Hollywood on Wednesday.

The judge wore a Balmain Fall 2011 dress for the big night.

Her navy, silver and gold sequinned-striped mini dress features bold shoulders.

Paula accessorized with a navy YSL clutch, gold necklaces and gold earrings.

She completed her look with gold spiked Ruthie Davis peep-toe heels which look like Louboutin’s because of the red sole.

This is a great look for Paula, but with all that sparkle she didn’t need the gold necklaces.

Miu Miu Presents Lucrecia Martel’s “Muta” Event Red Carpet Round Up

Here’s a round up of the rest of the attendees at the Miu Miu Presents Lucrecia Martel’s “Muta” event. Go back 2 or 3 pages to see Diane Kruger, Camilla Belle and many more.

Eve Hewson: We were first introduced to Bono’s daughter during Cannes Film Festival, when she attended a photocall wearing Miu Miu.  On this occasion she opted for a beige chiffon Miu Miu dress which she teamed with a purple sequined Louis Vuitton Rococco clutch and black pumps.

Emma Roberts: Either Emma has a golden tan or she glowing in her Miu Miu gold leather dress. A Prada clutch and…OMG…open-toe sandals completed her look. I think this is the first time we’ve seen Emma’s toes on the red carpet.

Leslie Bibb: The blonde actress wore a Lanvin one-shoulder dress from the Spring 2011 collection which has two decorative zippers.  I adore her strappy sandals.

Who Wore Jean Fares Couture Better? Giuliana Rancic or Paula Abdul

E! News host and reality TV star Giuliana Rancic wore a Jean Fares Couture dress whilst appearing on The Fashion Police back in October.

Her silver sequin one shoulder mini dress with a diagonal pattern was worn with nude pumps, a gold watch and bracelet.

Former American Idol judge Paula Abdul attended the InterContinental Make-A-Wish Ball earlier this month in Miami wearing the same dress.

Paula matched both her shoes and her clutch to her dress to complete her look.

I much prefer Giuliana in this dress. I prefer the longer length, plus I think Paula OD’ed on matching everything to her dress making the look very static and harsh.

2010 Emmy Awards – Black Beauties

Despite the intense LA sunshine on the red carpet at the 2010 Emmy Awards last night, many stars opted for black.

Kelly Osbourne looked outstanding wearing a Tony Ward Couture gown which made her look like a Gothic mermaid.

The gown draped elegantly at the back.

As much as I love this dress and Kelly’s new rockin bod, I don’t like her hair.

Heidi Klum gave us no surprises wearing a black Marchesa strapless tulle mini dress with rose embroidered sculpted bands.

Her look was paired with Christian Louboutin ‘Pigaglili Pot Purri Stras’ spiked heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Paula Abdul becomes the 100th person to don this Dolce & Gabbana strapless sequin gown on the red carpet.

Angela Kinsey looked breath-taking wearing a Romona Keveza black strapless gown with softly fluted skirt which highlights the delicately ruffled lace neckline.

Eva Longoria wore a Robert Rodriguez Black Label ?chantilly rose lace? gown which is stunning on her, but it instantly reminded me of her Cannes Pucci gown for some reason.

Maybe it’s the pose.

She dazzled in Loren jewels and added a clutch.

Emmy winner Edie Falco was fully decked out in Bottega Veneta.

She wore a black silk chiffon gown, with black pave diamond earrings, a white gold diamond bracelet and black origami knot clutch.

Joan Allen looked sublimely elegant wearing a Michael Kors black one shoulder silk crepe jersey gown which she paired with a silver clutch and clear perspex cuff.

2009 American Music Awards

Best Dressed Award
It’s been a long while since I was wowed by Fergie, but the singer did just that at the AMAs last night.

The singer walked the red carpet wearing an Armani Privé Fall 2009 black gown with asymmetrical zipper detailing which leads to a dramatic front slit.

The gown sparkles with thousands of black triangular paillettes and is embellished with tiny Swarovski crystals.

Fergie’s gown is slightly modified from the runway as the neckline differs plus Fergie’s gown has straps.

Black Louboutin’s plus a bracelet, armlet and large ring complete this stunning look.

Best Mini Dress Award
Alicia Keys has been a longtime friend of Giorgio Armani, so it’s not a surprise to see the singer wearing one of his stunning designs.

Her modified Giorgio Armani Spring 2010 cobalt blue, jewel encrusted strapless dress had an origami pleated detail on the bust which is more dramatic than the runway version.

I’m loving the aqua marine shades of blue, and the cute Swarovski crystal embellished shorts she wore under her dress.

She picked a fun piece from this collection that truly embodied the spirit of the AMAs.

Most Dramatic Award
Whilst most below were picking out cute nude dresses, Rihanna opted for a dramatic black and white floral laser cut Marchesa Spring 2010 strapless gown.

I loved this gown and it needed a strong personality to pull it off, and Rihanna did in my opinion.

I will guess a lot of you will hate this look, but she gets a thumbs up from me even with those white shoes.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Hair Award
Shakira seems to be developing a healthy obsession with Versace, as this is her 3rd Versace red carpet look in a row.

This sexy Versace Spring 2010 ultra mini yellow dress with cut-out details was perfect for someone with tons of sex appeal like Shakira, but I couldn’t help but feel that they ran out of time to style her hair.

It felt a bit flat against her stunning dress which she paired with the Spring 2010 runway heels.

Looks Way Better On The Red Carpet Award
This Christian Cota Spring 2010 ivory dress could have gone oh so wrong on Kristen Bell had she worn it as it was presented on the runway.

She only pulled up the skirt a few inches and removed the chains, but it makes a world of difference.

Silver Christian Louboutin Archidisco T-strap sandals and a Judith Leiber clutch completed this cute look.

Inspired By Taylor Swift Award
Had Taylor Swift been at this event, this silver Talbot Runhof Spring 2010 mini dress is what we would’ve expected her to wear.

Selena Gomez is sparkling both via her dress and her winning smile wearing her dress with Rock & Republic’s “Romy” strappy sandals embellished with chain detail.

I’m really loving this look as Selena tends to dress way too mature and boring for her young age.

Toned Down Bling Award
Like Taylor, Carrie Underwood used to have an obsession with over embellished dresses.

On this occasion she looked beautiful wearing a metallic one-shouldered Theia dress paired with amazing gold strappy sandals.

Nude Award
From the nude make-up, to the nude dress and the nude Guiseppe Zanotti heels, Demi Lovato needed something to inject a bit of life into her look.

Luckily her Jenny Packham Spring 2010 dress has a jeweled detail on the neckline to stop this look from being so boring and totally washing her out.

Va Va Voom Award
No matter was Sofia Vergara wears she’s going to look sexy.

Even if she was wearing a bin liner.

Whilst most opted for Music Award standard mini dresses, Sofia wowed in a nude Emilio Pucci one-shoulder gown which no doubt would’ve had men going weak at the knees.

Kate Beckinsale Will Be Green With Envy Award
It seems that since Paula Abdul left ‘American Idol’ that she’s had a style transformation.

Gone are those tacky costumey dresses, and in comes this stunning strapless lace mermaid hem gown.

The gown was so grand she need 2 people to help her walk down the red carpet.

I can’t remember the last time she looked this amazing.

Out Of Place Award
I love the delicate lace details on Nicole Kidman’s Balenciaga one-shoulder gown.

The pink and grey colours are gorgeous on her, but she always looks so out of place at these music events.

Worst Dressed Award
As much as I should be loving Kelly Clarkson’s dress based on the amount of embellishments are covering her dress, it fails to flatter her.

Needs To Check Out Style.com Award
Can someone please introduce Leona Lewis to Style.com.

She needs to be made aware that there are other designers out there than just Vivienne Westwood.

Yes she makes great designs, but Leona is only picking pieces that look exactly the same and it’s getting incredibly boring now.

I’ll lose it if I have to refer to those clunky ankle boots and that corset belt, so I’m going to pass.

What’s Happening? Award
Keri Hilson used to be so interesting to watch on the red carpet, but her look has started to become boring and stale.

I hope she gets back to her best soon, because she can do better than a LBD.
