Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Burberry partnered with The Serpentine Gallery for their annual fundraising event, The Summer Party, which took place in London last night.

Poppy Delevingne: The British model looked very statuesque in her Emilio Pucci Fall 2011 dress with the classic Pucci print. The model would’ve handpicked the dress, as she was front row at the Pucci Fall 2011 presentation back in February.

Alexa Chung: The British TV presenter was the DJ at this event. She opted for a black Carven dress which matched the gloomy weather in London yesterday as it rained most of the day. I guess she wasn’t in a ‘Summer’ party mood as a result. On the plus side Alexa could’ve easily sailed home in her shoes.

Donna Air: The British TV presenter stood out on this red carpet wearing a neon yellow Roksanda Ilincic Resort 2011 one-shoulder dress with a draped detail. Whilst the Smythson clutch is so-so, the green peep-toes are amazing. I love this colour combo. Someone got the ‘Summer’ party memo.

Erin O’Connor: The model wore a beautiful Roberto Cavalli floral print maxi dress. Read more…

When I saw this picture of Poppy Delevigne, I laughed at would’ve been an almighty uproar had Blake Lively worn this Chanel Spring 2011 tweed ensemble.

Poppy may have got looks of envy from Lively as the both attended the Chanel Resort 2012 Presentation in Cap d’Antibes, France yesterday wearing grey short shorts with a matching jacket and white top.

I’m not sure how you are going to react to this look, but I think she looks fantastic.

I really admire her for wearing such a look.

If I had her amazing figure and courage I would look at this in the Chanel closet and say, “Why the hell not?”

Sadly I don’t possess the body, the courage, or the ensemble.

A Chanel quilted clutch, hot red lips and Chanel two tone ballerina flats completed this look.

Pitti Immagine Uomo is the opening event of the European and International Fashion Fair season.

Camilla Belle opened the Alberta Ferretti presentation during the 79th Pitti Immagine Uomo in Florence, Italy last night.

The show featured many celebrities, socialites, researchers, lawyers, sportive women connected to important humanitarian causes and iconic Supermodel Carmen Dell’Orefice.

“I wanted a group of women as different as possible from each other, to understand that every woman in her own way may be beautiful,” said the designer.

The special showcase consisted of 30 dresses created exclusively for this event.

Each look was gorgeous oozing femininity. The breath-taking collection consisted of floaty ethereal gowns, fur trimmed coats, cocktail dress and for the finale a stunning white feather accented dress as worn by Poppy Delevigne.

You can watch the full runway show at Alberta Ferretti live.

Evan Rachel Wood seems to be the Gucci girl of the moment.

On this occasion she wore a one shoulder mini Gucci Fall 2009 dress which has already been worn on the red carpet.

Her sparkling dress was covered in green and black striped crystals which she belted as per the runway.

She paired her mini dress with a large black cuff and black multi-strap high-heeled sandals to toughen up her gorgeous look.

Claire Danes is not much of a dare devil on the red carpet, so I’m not surprised she opted for one of the pieces from the Gucci Resort 2010 collection and not the rock chick Fall 2009 collection.

Her stripy lemon and blue dress already has me wishing for summer 2010, but her Gucci triple platform pumps had me wishing she’d picked another pair of heels to go with this summery dress.

Frida Giannini hosted this event, and like Donatella Versace in the previous post, Frida is already sporting her own Spring 2010 collection.

The Creative Director wore a simple black ensemble including skinny pants, and a black blazer with an interesting fringed detail on the shoulders.

Poppy Delevigne wore a silver Gucci Fall 2009 over-sized tunic top paired with black leggings.

This is quite a casual look, but not too casual to make her look like she shouldn’t have walked the red carpet at this event.

Mischa Barton looks good.

She keeps on smiling no matter what life throws at her.

The star worked a black sequined long-sleeved dress with plunging neckline.

When I met Donatella Versace on Friday after her Versace Spring 2010 presentation, she told me that she likes to modified pieces from the runway to suit her body, and that’s exactly what she did here.

A tropical print mini dress with coil details at the waist, becomes a figure-hugging black dress with coil details cinching in Donatella’s already tiny waist.

I adore both looks.  She really is amazing.

Janet Jackson’s Versace Fall 2009 gown wasn’t modified but hers was electric blue to the runway’s black.

The wrap around gown was also nipped in at the waist to give Miss Janet that perfect hourglass figure.

Giovanna Battaglia does a good job of wearing this Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 blue and pink dress with a lace overlay without making it look comical.  In fact she looks better than the runway.

She paired her mini dress with a pair of LV Fall 2009 lace up boots with a pink trim and a pink clutch from the same collection.

Dita Von Teese wore a Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 hot pink satin long sleeved ruched dress with black waist belt.

This dress is quite refreshing on Dita as her dress with the exaggerated shoulders isn’t too structured.

I doubt Poppy Delevigne knows who Chiling Lin is, but she OWNED this Salvatore Ferragamo gown when she wore it to the 2009 China Huabiao Film Awards last month.

Because of that fact this stunning gown just looks OK on Poppy as I know how amazing this gown really is on the right person. Plus Chiling wore it without the sheer detail on the neckline which is not doing much for Poppy.

Anja Rubik is one of my favourite models of the moment.

The super look gorgeous in a dazzling Gucci Fall 2009 embellished sparkling mini dress.

She paired her edgy dress with studded booties to complete her rock chic look.

Gwyneth Paltrow wore the runway grey version of this Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2009 gown last year, but I much prefer Maria Sole Brivio Sforza’s bright coral version.

My only claim to fame is being the first to recognise that Angelina Jolie wore this Max Azria Spring 2009 dress back-to-front at the SAG Awards earlier this year.

WAG Kristina Liliana Matthaeus, wife of legendary footballer Lothar Matthaeus, wore the dress the right way at this event pairing her cornflower blue gown with a snake skin clutch.

I’m not quite sure when I pushed the snooze button on Rachel Bilson, but I even though she is wearing a beautiful Salvatore Ferragamo gown with a black clutch by the same designer I don’t feel wowed by any means.

This Bilson/Ferragamo collaboration just doesn’t feel natural.

I’m not crazy about the bodice on Chanel Iman’s black silk gown, but she looks very elegant and statuesque on the red carpet, but she should have got her guest to stand up stream from her so he could have looked a bit taller.

Her sparkling belt and diamanté wedges add bit of sparkle to her look.

Didn’t Linda Evangelista once say that she’d rather go naked than wear fur?

On one of her rare days not wearing Herve Leger dresses Heidi Montag wore this adorable floral Ralph Lauren Spring 2008 strapless tiered dress to the 134th Kentucky Derby in Louisville last May.

As much as I loved the dress, I adore the large fuschia hat even more.

This is one of the rare times when head-to-toe I’ve loved what the reality TV star has worn.

British model Poppy Delevigne wore the same dress recently when she attended “The Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup Final” in Midhurst, England.

Her pretty dress was paired with a biker leather jacket, a large black belt, gold gladiators and a cream clutch.

I love Poppy’s accessories, but I really hate the leather jacket so Heidi wins this for me.
