Red Carpet Fashion Awards

I was pleasantly surprised to see how well turned out our British celebs (we’ve adopted Kylie) were on the red carpet for the “Sex And The City 2″ London Premiere tonight.

Kylie Minogue took a rare night off wearing Pucci to wear a Gucci Spring 2010 gown.

Her black gown has the trademark harness details on the bodice.

Former Spice Girl Emma Bunton paid her own tribute to BFF Victoria Beckham, as she wore a colourful dress from VB’s Spring 2010 collection.

Victoria wore the strapless version of this dress earlier this year.

Peaches Geldof  opted for a colourful Matthew Williamson Spring 2010 dress which has been modified from the runway.

Her version is sans the glass fringe shoulder details.

Jamie Winstone wore the same Vivienne Westwood dress which Thandie Newton wore to the Met Gala.

I didn’t like it on Thandie and I dislike it even more on Jamie as she doesn’t have the height to pull this look off.

She carried a Pauric Sweeney Ball bag.

I love all these look minus Jamie’s.

The best thing about this picture, is the woman in the background who is literally wetting herself with laughter at the ridiculousness of Amanda Holden’s ballerina tutu dress.

What is she like 5 years old?

This looks like something I would’ve worn to ballerina classes as a child.

Not a good look for a 39 year old woman.

YES 39.

Her look was paired with Louise Goldin for Topshop studded pumps.

Socialite Peaches Geldof arrived on the red carpet for the 2010 Human Rights Campaign Gala in LA looking surprisingly well put together.

She arrived holding hands with “Inglourious Basterds” actor Eli Roth, which has set tongues wagging that they are now a couple.

The girl who changes her hair colour more times than we have hot dinners, this time opted for a rich auburn colour – she was blonde during New York Fashion Week.

Animal print is really tricky to pull off. It can go well, or it can very Sharon Stone.

On this occasion Peaches looks fabulous in a D&G Fall 2007 animal print gown, which looks so divine on her.

Her make-up is light and she’s smiling not snarly. Everything about her look tells me the former wild child has finally grown up.

Cipriani Restaurant

Eva Herzigova was spotted…literally…leaving Cirpriani’s restaurant in Mayfair wearing a animal print Isabel Marant Fall 2009 dress.

The supermodel wore her dress with thick tights and ankle boots.

We’ve seen this dress worn by Rachel Weisz a few months ago.

The Times BFI London Film Festival: “Fantastic Mr. Fox” Opening Gala

Cindy Crawford was the only woman to shine so brightly on this red carpet.

The super wore a black deep v-neck Roberto Cavalli gown paired with Jimmy Choo Keenan patent leather sandals.

This is how you OWN a red carpet.

George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis faded into the background for me.

I’m so bored of the “girlfriends” he just happens to have in time for a new promotional tour.

Elisabetta is wearing one of the tackiest red carpet gowns I have seen this year, obviously she’s not getting the same allowance as Clooney’s last girlfriend who stepped out in Valentino Couture.

I can’t even bring myself to look at her shoes…just hideous.

Even when she’s slightly off-duty Thandie Newton is still totally gorgeous.

Myleene Klass was reporting live from this red carpet last night wearing a LBD.

She kept herself warm wearing a navy coat which had a massive corsage.

Tatler 300th Anniversary

Peaches Geldof wears Dolce & Gabbana two nights in a row.

This time she wears a black strapless tulle dress with a voluminous skirt.

Carla Gugino and Eva Herzigova have both worn this same dress in nude.

Tara Palmer-Tomkinson may look ridiculous in her totally see-through gown with boy shorts and gold pumps, but at least its not black like everyone else.

Wembley Stadium

WAG (nickname used for footballing Wives And Girlfriends) Abigail Clancy was spotted leaving Wembley Stadium after watching her lanky boyfriend Peter Crouch score 2 goals in England’s World Cup qualifier against Belarus.

The game ended 3-0, but the real winner was Abby in the style stakes as she paired a purple Louis Vuitton scarf, with a black blazer, grey jeans, open-toe booties and an Alexander Wang Coco Duffel bag.

Olga Kurylenko looks tantalizingly sexy in her black Jasmine di Milo Spring 2010 mini dress, but once again her footwear lets her down.

Just because the dress was presented with them on the runway, that doesn’t make it a good look.

Is the wild child growing up?

Peaches Geldof looked very sophisticated wearing a Dolce & Gabbana ruched dress with black patent heels to this event.

She appears to have moved on from the plum hair colour she was sporting this summer, to this rich auburn colour which really brings out her baby blues.

Bonnie Wright wore a black v-neck leather dress, but it’s her Prada Fall 2009 studded heels which I found myself drooling over.

Alex Curran made the trip down from Liverpool to London support this charity event.

The stylish WAG looked beautiful wearing a Josh Goot printed mini dress with black Topshop ankle boots and a black clutch.

I love this print which we have seen on Little Boots, it’s hauntingly beautiful.

Nancy Dell’Olio wore a draped gold lame three-quarter sleeve Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with single pouf shoulder which we’ve seen on Charlize Theron and Jenna Elfman.

Salvatore Ferragamo

I was very surprised to see Rachel Bilson in the front row at Salvatore Ferragamo.

Rachel’s has a dress-down sense of style that just doesn’t fit the Ferragamo brand, so this connection doesn’t quite work for me, neither does the navy Fall 2009 dress which she paired with lace fingerless gloves and ankle boots.

Dolce & Gabbana

Peaches Geldof is still going strong during Fashion Week appearing in front rows at New York, London and now Milan.

The…well I’m not quite sure what she does…wore a graphic print long sleeved dress from the designers Fall 2009 collection, with both the tight and runway shoes.

I’m surprised she opted out of wearing those puffy shoulders.

Daisy Lowe didn’t think the red furry jacket would garner her enough attention, so she opted to arrived in red leopard print pants too.

10 out of 10 for bravery. 1 out of 10 for subtlety.

Great legs though.

Margareth Made brought back the sophistication to the front row at this show looking stunning wearing a lace dress from the Fall 2009 collection which was fully lined, unlike the sexier runway version.

Giorgio Armani

Zhang Ziyi opted for a cute Armani short suit look, with a black baker hat.

I loved her ombre sequined jacket with a ruffled collar.

Janet Jackson went for a more casual look including an argyle cardigan, a white shirt and wide stripped pants.

More office wear than front row, but she looks good as does her Zagliani python envelope bag.

Gucci

Mary J Blige sparkled wearing a bejeweled Gucci top, paired with Gucci thigh-high boots.

Fashion Fringe & Christopher Kane

Regular readers will know that I’m constantly fascinated with how Donatella Versace takes one piece from the runway and creates a totally different look unique to her.

On her visit to London she created a black sleek pencil dress from a one-shoulder top she had presented on the Fall 2009 runway.

Should would’ve look fantastic in either look which is so great about her.

Her heels are from the Versus collection.

Matthew Williamson

Olivia Palmero a self confessed Topshop addict, wore a Matthew Williamson Zig-Zag dress with navy ankle booties.

She’s not quite sporting the ‘Palmero’, but a neat ponytail.

Marios Schwab

Anna Wintour hasn’t been to London Fashion Week in a very long while and her presence is a BIG deal.

She attended the shows of  London hippest designers Marios Schwab and Christopher Kane wearing a reptile – no doubt Prada – coat and a smile sans sunglasses, which is strange because it’s actually sunny in London.

Leigh Lezark wore a crystal print Marios Schwab mini dress which I think looks better with the runway sash tied to the waist.

Ashish

Michelle Williams was very much the ‘Sophia Bush’ of London Fashion Week, as she was everywhere.

She also pulled an ‘Anna Wintour’ by not wearing anything from the designers who’s shows she attended.

At the Ashish show she wore a cute coral tiered Jenny Packham dress and sunshine yellow peep-toes.

I love that jeweled detail on the neckline.

Bora Aksu

Michelle must have like the Ashish show so much that she then wore one of his pieces to the Bora Aksu show.

The black sequin tunic dress was covered names of places I’m sure she’s traveled to with Destiny’s Child.

I love the quirky shoes she paired with this dress.

Topshop Unique

Kate Moss looks more like she’s on vacation rather than sitting front row, but Kate being Kate can wear a trash bag and still work it in the front row.

PPQ

Sporting shearling jacket when it’s quite warm in London, Alexa Chung give us that ‘so hip it hurts’ look as she waited for the PPQ show.

She wore a LBD with a lace panel, booties and a Miu Miu cross body bag.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label

Joss Stone opts for a classic Westwood tartan ensemble with some questionable open-toe Westwood booties.

Michelle Williams arrived wearing a LBD with an asymmetrical hemline plus a bright fuschia dupioni blazer.

Sexy Christian Louboutin Calypso heels.

Nicola Roberts opted for a red shimmering dress with ankle strapped heels.

Nicola arrived with Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding who made a huge statement with her PVC mini dress and Giuseppe Zanotti sculpted platform ankle boots with a bright red platform.

Luella

Every time I saw Peaches Geldof in New York she looked like a moody sulking teenager, even at the Marchesa show.

So I’m glad for two things: she smiling and she looks adorable wearing a Luella Spring 2009 lilac one-shouldered dress.

It’s not often I really like what she wears, but this a great look for her…sans tights.
