Red Carpet Fashion Awards

It’s not only Cheryl Cole who has opted for a new cherry-red coloured ‘do, Peaches Geldof has too.

The socialite showed of her new ‘do via her twitter page last week which has everyone talking about how she copied Cheryl, but Peaches insists she had wanted to change her colour for a long while.

With these two UK stars sporting their cherry-red ‘do’s, its bound to send everyone to the salon to get a piece of this new celeb trend.

Adding a subtle hint of colour is a great way to add warm tones to your hair for the colder months.

I wouldn’t advise anyone to use home dye kits unless you know what you’re doing.

Peaches showed off newly-dyed locks as she was spotted leaving London’s Mayfair hotel wearing a Topshop lace corset dress under a check shirt, whilst carrying a tartan bag.

Kylie Minogue would’ve been the stand out guest, arriving wearing a hot pink strapless Dolce & Gabbana ruched cocktail dress with an embellished belt, and gold heels.

Love the colour and the confident sassy strut.

Eva Herzigova wore black sheer and lace sleeveless Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 dress with ruffled straps and a sheer front panel.

The straps have been replace by the runway sleeves, but this modification makes the dress even more sexier.

Eva completes the look with black peep-toes, which are trimmed with lace.

Of all the looks Peaches Geldof has sported at Cannes, I love this one.

It much more her style, than those gowns she has been wearing.

This silver ruched Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress is very much like Kylie’s dress, but with square paillette detailed pom pom sleeves.

It must have been a busy night because the hair, earrings and make-up all remain the same, from her previous events.

Lucky girl.

I believe this is the image they should put in a dictionary to describe ‘death warmed up’.

Pixie Geldof’s being pale is not the issue, its that heavy make-up which is so garish.

I do like her navy and white anchor print plunging halter D&G Spring 2009 gown, just not on her but I’m glad she opted out of the pleated gold lame fan pieces.

If you hate this look, it could’ve been worse because she was spotted at Dolce & Gabbana’s store in London trying on an animal print gown.

Olivia Palermo decided to ignore the unwritten rule of courtesy, by wearing a light blue off-the-shoulder dress not designed by her hosts.

Looking through the Dolce & Gabbana collection, I struggled to find a piece that I could’ve pictured her wearing, so I guess she made the right choice.

I adore the colour on her.  It’s a very pretty dress which she accessorizes with silver jewels.

Of course she is wearing her favourite YSL tribute sandals.

I guess she only packed one pair of heels for this trip.

Kerry Washington wore a Dolce & Gabbana silver cocktail dress with exaggerated off the shoulder sleeves.

Again, this is not a favourite Kerry look for me.

Dita Von Teese sticks to her trademark polished style wearing a black sequin Dolce & Gabbana dress, with exaggerated sleeves.

Her elbow-length lace gloves adding an extra touch of glamour, whilst her make-up was flawless and her necklace was striking.

Claudia Schiffer wore a black strapless Dolce & Gabbana gown with a black clutch, black peep-toes, and a single gold bracelet.

I know Carine Roitfeld is a style maven to many of you, so all I will say about this look is we all have our bad days.

Kylie Minogue put on a special concert for the ‘Miracle Africa International Foundation Charity’, at the VIP Room during Cannes Film Festival this weekend.

In an event sponsored by Chopard, the Australian singer performed in front of stars such as Peaches Geldof, Tamara Beckwith and James Blunt. Kylie arrived at the VIP Room, wearing a black leather strapless Balmain Fall 2009 jewel encrusted mini dress, with an equally dazzling pair of heels.

It’s a nice piece, but I don’t think it does anything for Kylie. Maybe it’s the angle of the picture, but I think it makes her look boxy, when we all know what an amazing figure she really has.

I much preferred the Balmain Fall 2009 strapless jumpsuit, with an embellished v-shaped panel, and harem pants, she performed, as it was more flattering.

Kylie has worn similar pieces from Jean Paul Gaultier, for her recent tour.

Kylie’s other performance piece, was black Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 top, with circular sleeves, and a jeweled rosette.

Kylie cut up a pair of Chanel Fall 2008 half lace, half opaque tights, and used them as sleeves. A dazzling garter belt and fishnet tights, completed the sexy look.

Peaches Geldof arrived straight from the The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus Premiere, as she had the same hairstyle, make-up and earrings, but opted to changed into a pink Dolce & Gabbana off-the shoulder gown, with contrast piping and a ruffled trim.

The dress may look familiar to you, that’s because AnnaLynne McCord wore the sexy shorter dress version, to the 90210 Season Wrap Party.

“The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” Premiere

Lily Cole looked like a fairytale princess in her pale blue Chanel Fall 2007 Couture gown.

As soon as I saw Lily, I immediately thought of Amy Adams’ character Giselle in the Disney movie Enchanted, as Lily has that same beautiful innocence.

Spanish Model and TV host Mar Saura, causes a stir by striking a sexy pose wearing a Nina Ricci Spring 2009 halter dress with a rise and fall hem.

The dress showed off her long legs and Jimmy Choo Pixie sandals.

Model Noemie Lenoir could wear a black sack and still shine, but instead opted for an Armani Privé Spring 2009 strapless gown.

Her stunning gown had an embroidered bell-shaped skirt and a sequin bodice.

Credit were credit is due, Peaches Geldof is trying.

But even in this electric blue strapless Roberto Cavalli gown, I’m still not particularly convinced she has turned over a new leaf.

“The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” Photocall

Lily opted for a low key look for the photocall wearing a pale pink top with Stella McCartney ankle zip jeans and a pair of quite hideous pink and orange heels.

“Face” Premiere

Zhang Ziyi looked utterly divine in her pink floral Giorgio Armani Spring 2009 strapless gown with a twisted bodice.

The dress should have been the main focus – especially as her hair was pulled back and her make-up was subtle – but I find myself instantly drawn to her necklace.

What a magnificent piece it is, and I’m usually put off by a large statement pieces grabbing away the attention from the gown.

As much as I love Kerry Washington I don’t love her Monique Lhuillier gown, despite how elegant she looks.

I think it’s the lace one-sleeved top half which is putting me off.

When I saw her I really wanted to find something nice to say, but all I could think was I like her Roger Vivier black satin clutch.

Michelle Yeoh was the picture of elegance wearing a black shimmering Roberto Cavalli gown, with an exquisite silver necklace.

“Map of the Sounds of Tokyo” Premiere

This is something we don’t see very often from Rinko Kikuchi – a soft and sweet look.

Usually she’s wearing something cutting edge, couture, or well structured, so this white ethereal vintage Sophia Kokosalaki gown is a nice refreshing change.

Actress Elodie Bouchez wore a strapless Balmain Spring 2009 LBD with a studded belt  and Jimmy Choo Seattle sandals.

Elodie’s look has less sparkle, in comparison to the runway version because she opted for the black belt which I actually prefer.

“Map of the Sounds of Tokyo” Premiere

This more like the Rinko Kikuchi we know, wearing a piece that has a lot of personality.

Her Chanel Resort 2010 dress included a peplum on the waist, and gold detailing throughout.

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.

British TV presenter Myleene Klass maybe the least known at this event, but she was by far the best dressed, wearing a nude strapless Jasper Conran Fall 2009 dress, with a organza floral detail on the skirt.

After Kirsty Gallacher let me down last week, Myleene is fast becoming my favourite Brit on the red carpet.

Nude Louboutin’s complete the look.

Peaches Geldof scrubs up well when she puts in the effort.

On this occasion she wore a white Paule Ka Fall 2009 bustier gown, with a black bow belt, which had white stitching.

She could have opted for different shoes from her previous party, but all in all, another good look for her, minus the tattoos.

Red Casadei heels, and an embellished Bulgari clutch complete the look.

Asia Argento shows off her Chopard bling, whilst wearing a black elegant Chanel gown.

Eva Herzigova wore a black strapless Roberto Cavalli dress which had cut-out details on the bodice, and a tulle poufy skirt, with Giuseppe Zanotti Special Edition crystal strap sandals in black.

She wore the silver version to the Costume Institute Gala.

Marion Cotillard’s look is simply elegant, but at the same time a little boring in this Lanvin strapless dress.
