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.

“This Is It” LA Premiere

It was a windy and rainy night in LA yesterday, but the Queen of the wind machine didn’t have a problem.

Jennifer Lopez looks stunning as ever wearing black Herve Leger beaded bandage dress paired with the same Herve Leger slouchy boots with a chain detail from the runway and a large black clutch.

Paula Abdul didn’t get the ‘wear black memo’, as she proudly walked the red carpet wearing a cobalt blue Temperley London Spring 2009 strapless Grecian dress with a embellished bodice.

Her dress was paired with pink Louboutin’s and a silver clutch.

I make that 2 for 2 for Paula, she’s having an amazing week despite the slightly squashed twins.

Vivica A Fox opted for a one-shouldered Balmain LBD with a silver panel, paired with Balenciaga Fall 2008 which celebrities fell in love with a year ago.

Paris Hilton channeled her inner Liz Hurley and brought a bit of fun to this red carpet by arriving wearing vintage Gianni Versace safety pin dress.

It’s not like Paris to cover up her legs, but like I said before it was a cold night in LA so she paired her dress with black tights and black Louboutin ankle boots.

Jennifer Love Hewitt and Comedian Jamie Kennedy arrived wearing jeans and Michael Jackson tees.

Ashley Tisdale paired a gold studded skirt with a Michael Jackson tee and Louboutin ankle boots.

Monique Coleman looked very grown up wearing a black leather Kova & T bustier dress paired with studded sandals.

I love her hair here.

Katy Perry arrived wearing a vintage Christian Lacroix gown which felt a bit OTT for this event considering some came in graphic tees.

Rock the Kasbah Gala

Kristin Cavallari is too evil to wear this cute white dress. j/k

It’s actually a very cute look for her, and she doesn’t usually do cute.

I have compared the dress to the Miu Miu Spring 2008 dress, but I’m not sure if Kristin’s dress is modified or just a very good copy.  I’m leaning towards the latter.

What do you think?

Daisy Fuentes snuggled up to the man who used to be on posters all over my bedroom as a kid – Matt Goss from Bros.

Remember them?

The beautiful actress looked flawless in a peacock Tadashi Shoji halter gown with gathered waist, whilst he looked good in a 3 piece suit.

Lindsay Price was my favourite on this red carpet, as she dazzled in a strapless red Valentino gown.

Talk about owning a look.

Gorgeous.

I really like Lindsay Lohan’s LBD.

It’s the most put together she’s looked in a long while, but she looks like she just woke up.

Estelle is still on top form.

I’m loving her navy satin asymmetrical mini dress which she pairs with glittering sandals and a stack of bracelets.

I’m gonna miss Paula Abdul on American Idol. Her crazy responses were the only thing that kept me watching.

I was surprised by how great she looked at this event wearing a peachy Herve Leger gown, with a jeweled bodice.

Sharon Stone looks to be slipping down the scary slope of animal prints with her reptile print gown.

I knew it wouldn’t be long before she cracked.

“American Idol” Grand Finale 2009

Terri Seymour showed off her enviable figure wearing a black Versace Spring 2009 mini dress, with an asymmetrical strap.

I much prefer the strapless runway version.

Christina Applegate was so desperate to get inside and see who the winner was, we only briefly got to see her Rebecca Taylor Spring 2009 gold embellished tank.

Carrie Underwood matches a pink plaster to her flirty neon Jenny Packham Pre-Fall 2009 dress.

I love the fruity embellished shoulder straps.

Paula Abdul looked outstanding for the first time in a long time wearing a body-hugging gold strapless number, by Danish designer Rikke Gudnitz.

This has to be one her best looks ever. The gown very much reminds me of the Thierry Mugler dress which Beyonce wore recently.

Fergie is electric in her electric blue Alexander McQueen silk satin shift dress, with strappy Stuart Weitzman silver sandals, and silver bangles.

Heather Locklear arrived looking super casual wearing white jeans and a nude top, whilst her daughter got all dressed up, looking super cute in a striped and polka dotted Betsey Johnson Spring 2008 mini dress, with sequins all over.

Kara DioGuardi arrived wearing a gorgeous dramatic black strapless gown. Hopefully to mourn the end of her stint on American Idol.

She drives me mental, plus she slows the show down.

09.02.09 Worst Dressed

2009 Grammy Awards – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
M.I.A is due to give birth any moment, as 8 February was her due date.

Unlike Kimoria Lee Simmons, pregnancy has not soften M.I.A’s style, in fact it has made it a whole lot worse.

I don’t even know where to begin to describe this, but is was created by Manish Arora for his Spring 2009 collection.

Her kicks are GOLA by Christian Lacroix.

Worst Beyonce Impression Award
I should be thankful that Leona Lewis is not wearing tights, but this Randi Rahm nude dress is so 2005 Beyonce.

No original styling here at all.

Worst C-3PO Impression & Over Embellished Award
The embellishments on Paula Abdul’s Basil Soda Spring 2009 yellow pleated gown, reminds me of C-3PO from Star Wars.

The yellow is great on her, but there is too much going on, on her shoulder.

OTT Award
Sadly Kate Beckinsale thought she had arrived at the Oscars.

Yes it’s a really gorgeous Reem Acra gown with a stunning two tone tulle hem, but it’s way too much dress for the Grammy’s. A cute cocktail dress would have been much better.

Still So Desperate Award
This is a perfect cute canary yellow mini for the Grammy’s, but watching Solange Knowles pose on the red carpet, was exhausting. I could smell her desperation from here.

Most Unflattering Award
I love the rose print on Jordin Sparks’ strapless custom made Debra Davenport gown, but it does not flatter her at all.

Maybe I am too used to seeing her legs in a short sassy dresses, because for me, this doesn’t work for her.

180 Award
Just when we thought Paris Hilton had turned a corner in the style stakes, she reverts back to this. Tiny, revealing, trashy.

I had a feeling her good run would end, but just not this soon. She is wearing a Versace Spring 2003 mini.

Space Cadet Award
I am usually a fan of Estelle’s unique style, but this winged space age Bernard Chandran dress with Halston shoes, just leaves me cold.

If she wanted to wear such an edgy dress, why add the big chunky necklace?

A very confusing look.

Worst Black Award
This is two boring black dresses in two days for Duffy.

For someone who started out with a unique style, she certainly has taken several steps back.

Wearing Alberta Ferretti.
