Red Carpet Fashion Awards

What a knock out.

Freida Pinto looks nothing short of breath-taking, wearing this metallic one-shouldered Zac Posen Spring 2009 mini dress, to the Directors Guild of America Awards over the weekend.

She wore her dress with matching peep-toes, and her hair and make-up were totally flawless.

The former aspiring model has only had one bad day on the red carpet, which she’s more than made up for ever since.

Amy Adams arrived wearing a shimmering Jasmine Di Milo Spring 2007 dress, with silver and nude sequin details.

What I love is how the dress is cut low at the back, as Amy tries to shake her “safe on the red carpet” image.

Amy never lets me down, safe or not, so this is another fantastic look for me.

Silver Christian Louboutin Fortuna slingbacks complete the look.

Marisa Tomei has an amazing figure, and this white strapless Dior gown shows it off by giving her a very sexy silhouette.

She completes her look with a stunning silver necklace with heart-shape details, and a purple clutch.

Taraji P. Henson strapless Kaufman Franco dress really gives her a lift.

For some reason the necklace really bothers me. The bodice has such an interesting detail on it, but the necklace distracts me.

Taraji gets better and better this awards season.

Michelle Monaghan had a baby girl 3 months ago, and is already back on the red carpet looking stunning.

She shows us her post-baby figure for the first time, wearing a white strapless Giambattista Valli Spring 2009 dress, covered in black paillettes.

Rachel Griffiths is glowing in a champagne coloured Lanvin Fall 2008 dress.

Her jewels are by Neil Lane, and her silver clutch is by Alexandra Knight.

This is a nice enough Temperley London dress for Claire Danes, with the embellished shoulders, but something is missing.

A matching embellished belt perhaps?

Now this is one Herve Leger dress you guys just have to love.

Viola Davis’ dress has a chiffon skirt, to give it such chic elegant touch.

I am glad she opted for a gold clutch, which really grabs your attention.

I love Virginia Madsen. She is always so bold on the red carpet. Never hiding behind black, never covering up.

She has it, and she’s flaunting it.

You go girl.

I am loving the sparkling details on Lisa Edelstein LBD, which is very sexy.

Terri Seymour, the ex-girlfriend of Simon Cowell, used to always be well groomed on the red carpet.

The black turtleneck dress looks fab on her, because lets face it she has the body to carry it, but the crimped hair is such a big no-no.

I don’t think crimped hair has been cool since the 80s.

“Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans” Los Angeles Premiere

Rhona Mitra wore a white strapless Giambattista Valli Spring 2009 dress, with a ribbon tied to the waist.

The dress was kept plain, unlike the embroidered version which was presented on the runway.

She completed her look with her hair loosely tied back, silver peep-toes, and John Hardy jewels.

Kate Beckinsale is also in this movie, so I am surprised she wasn’t at this premiere.

Garcelle Beauvais also wore a strapless dress with a ribbon tied to the waist, but hers was black with a tulle overlay.

“Valkyrie” Amsterdam Premiere

Carice van Houten stole the limelight from Tom Cruise wearing a stunning red Valentino Fall 2008 gown.

Nomad Two Worlds Preview Exhibit, New York

Anna Wintour arrived at this event wearing a modified Prada Spring 2009 snake print dress, with black and white stripes under her coat.

The dress is one of the few dresses I really liked from this collection.

W Atlanta Buckhead Hotel Grand Opening

Michelle Trachtenberg wore a silver grey jersey Catherine Malandrino draped neckline dress, which had a black beaded belt.

She completed her look with a black Swarovski clutch, and black strappy sandals.

I love people who wear bright colours on the red carpet, and Sophia Bush does not disappoint wearing this pumpkin coloured mini BCBG Max Azria Fall 2008 dress, with a tan/black belt tied to the waist.

She completes her look with green suede heels.

Art LA 2009 VIP Opening Night Reception, LA

Rachel Griffiths nude dress which gathers on the hip, perfectly compliments her skin tone.

She completed her look with snake skin pumps, and a gold clutch.

6th Annual ‘Living Legends of Aviation’ Awards Ceremony, LA

With her distinctive hairstyle, Calista Flockhart arrived looking stunning in a simple navy Azzaro vintage gown, which had diamante detailing.

“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” Paris Premiere

Head to toe greys? Really? I didn’t ever believe I could be this underwhelmed.

Angelina Jolie gets more and more boring with every red carpet appearance.

Her coat is by Akris, and her top and pants are from the Ralph Lauren Black Label collection.

Declare Yourself Inauguration Kick-Off Event, Washington

Jessica Alba looked radiant in her gold sleeveless asymmetrical dress.

The style was a bit fussy with the gathered detail on the front. But she tried to pull it all together with a black leather belt.

She paired it with black tights, and accessorized with black pumps, Christian Louboutin Aionoued bow clutch and spectacular multi-coloured stone earrings.

I’m really starting to love this new hair cut.

Hayen Panettiere sparkled in a black Marc Bouwer dress with silver sequined detailing. The dress was backless.

She wore this dress with black YSL platform pumps and a gold clutch.

Australia Week 2009 Black Tie Gala, LA

Rachel Griffiths wore one-shoulder Colette Dinnigan gown. The elegant gown sparkled with black sequins on the bust line.

She completed her look with Cartier jewelry and Manolo Blahnik heels.

Emilie de Raven wore this baby blue halter Moschino gown, which complimented her gorgeous blue eyes. The dress was cinched in at the waist with a black sash.

Melissa George opted for a stunning voluminous black gown, which was nipped in at the waist and had an embellished yoke.

She completed her look with an updo.

Of the rest, Laura Linney was definitely the best.

I love the mellow yellow colour of her asymmetrical Elie Saab Spring 2008 Couture gown, and the embellished waist. She looked outstanding.

Taraji P. Henson looked gorgeous in her J.Mendel Fall 2008 chiffon gown. It was quite dramatic, without going over the top.

She completed her look with a black satin Mary Norton clutch.

The trend for wearing electric blue continues with Mary-Louise Parker. Her Carlos Miele Spring 2009 gown had asymmetrical tiers from the bodice, and a chiffon hem and train.

She accessorized her gown with silver jewels and a Mary Norton clutch and Chopard jewels.

Sandra Bullock was another one of my favourites in this vanilla Dior gown.

I love how her hair falls to the opposite direction of her asymmetrical gown.

Rachel Griffiths wore a one-shouldered golden Ralph Rucci silk gown, with a Judith Leiber vintage handbag Decades Inc, Liseanne Frankfurt jewels and bronze Vanessa Noel heels.

Kyra Sedgwick did not wear L’Wren Scott as I had predicted. Instead she wore a strapless red belted Oscar de la Renta gown, with Fred Leighton jewels.

Amanda Seyfried wore an ethereal pearl Stella McCartney silk asymmetric gown, which had a beaded detail on the shoulder.

She completed her look with a Daniel Swarovski clutch.

Heidi Klum wore an incredibly cute strapless vintage James Galanos pouf dress, with black and red polka dots from Decades.

She completed her look with Christian Louboutin multi buckle sandals.

I was not crazy about Isla Fisher’s two-tone nude Carlos Miele Spring 2009 gown. I would have liked it to be all one colour.

Elisabeth Moss was one of the many ladies who picked red last night, hers was vintage Givenchy, and she picked Garrard jewels to complete her look.

Jane Krakowski opted for a J. Mendel gown, which she wore with Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry.

Melissa George does not do safe, which is why her thigh-high split ice blue Armani Prive gown has an interesting black fan detail on the bodice.

Tina Fey’s Roberto Cavalli plunging gown, also did not wow me.

Surprise guest of the night was Alek Wek. I don’t remember the last time I saw her on the red carpet.

The supermodel wore a Christian Dior Fall 2008 mini dress, which showed off her impossibly long legs.

Vanessa Hudgens wore a nude beaded Alberta Ferretti gown, with a candy coloured necklace.

Madeline Zima looks youthful but elegant. She has an amazing figure and I love how this dress shows her shape and the curves hit all the right points.

Viola Davis’ gown for some reason reminded me of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Zac Posen Oscar 2007 gown with shape and the lines.

She dressed well for her figure, and the colour is so complimentary to her skin.

Maria Menounos wore a cute purple ruffle one shoulder Ina Soltani gown.

Samantha Harris wore the same designer, but picked her dress in the colour of the moment – electric blue.

Christina Hendricks has curves to die for. The stunning redhead looked ravishing wearing a custom black silk sculpted strapless Tadashi gown.

Anna Paquin wore a purple Herve Leroux gown, which had a ruched bodice and draped detail on the side.
