Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Rachel McAdams recently appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show to promote her new movie “Sherlock Holmes”.

On the show she talked not owning a television because she got addicted to it, working at McDonalds, learning Italian for her first movie and buying butt-hole shaped chocolates for the Sherlock Holmes crew.

The stunning actress is glowing with gorgeousity wearing a Doo.Ri Spring 2010 dress.

The cob-web style asymmetrical dress was paired with nude Brian Atwood heels, which only enhance that golden glow.

I’m not usually a fan of hair piled high on top like that, but it’s such a cute style on Rachel.

Rachel McAdams was finally allowed to shine on her own.

There was no Blake Lively wearing a show stopping Dolce & Gabbana barely-there dress.

No Diane Kruger dazzling in a Karl Lagerfeld futuristic dress.

It was just Rachel, giving us sophisticated glamour wearing a Vionnet Resort 2010 nude dress.

I love way one side of the draped ruched dress falls gently off her shoulder, and even though those Casadei heels look heavy I’m glad she didn’t opt for a nude pair.

There’s a bit of a Noah’s Ark effect about Vionnet, with their clothes being worn in two’s.

Back in October both Carey Mulligan and Hilary Swank wore Vionnet on the same night.

Last night both Marion Cotillard and Rachel wore Vionnet looks.

Robert Downey Jr and his wife producer Susan Downey looked to be having fun walking the red carpet together.

She looked gorgeous wearing a strapless Martin Grant Fall 2009 grey ombre dress, with a matching pair of grey peep-toes.

I’m so happy to see a look from this collection on the red carpet again. I wish more pieces had been worn.

Another day, yet another well worthy BDOTW contender. I’m gonna have trouble photoshopping all this weeks looks onto one page.

Sorry Rachel McAdams but my eyes instantly locked onto Diane Kruger at the Berlin premiere of Sherlock Holmes.

The German actress shone so brightly on the red carpet wearing this Karl Lagerfeld Spring 2010 LBD with sculptured hips and a futuristic gold bolero.

I’m loving the new directing Diane seems to have taken on the red carpet.

We are seeing less gowns and more fashion forward minis some sexy, some edgy, some with a mixture of both.

Although I’m not a fan of the ‘Palmero’ (hairstyle). I do love it on Diane, as with her hair pulled back it doesn’t interfere with us marveling at that magnificent hardware.

As Rachel Zoe would say “she shut it down”.

I have a feeling…”oooohh ooohhh”…that Diane is going to be electric on the red carpet this year.

As much as I’ve gushed over Diane, Rachel McAdams was also knocked it out of the ball park in this stunning one-shoulder Alberta Ferretti Fall 2009 crinkled silk chiffon gown.

I much prefer her one-shoulder version as the material wraps around her body with more fluidity, plus I love the black sash tied around her waist.

Her hair and flawless make-up almost render me speechless. I much prefer this look to the London Premiere.

Yep…she’s a contender for BDOTW too.

January Jones was also at this premiere wearing a black mini Valentino dress with voluminous sleeves.

I’m not crazy about the overall look, as I wish she’s pulled her hair back as it feel like it’s competition for room on her the shoulders with the sleeves.

In case you didn’t already know, I have a serious girl crush on Rachel McAdams.

In my opinion she rarely puts a fashion foot wrong and she has an air of shyness about her that you just don’t see in Hollywood stars anymore.

Needless to say I was delighted to see her on the cover of this month’s Vogue where she wear’s Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2010. I think the grown-up florals are such a great look on her.

Here are some extracts from her interview but you can view the whole article at Vogue.com

On working with Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls: “I just remember marveling about how much she knew as an actor, how much she understood. She did very few takes and had this naturalness to her. And beyond that, I was 26 at the time. I’d be asked, ‘Where do you go out?’ . . . I felt like I was in a different place at that time.”

Rachel McAdams wore this Stella McCartney Resort 2010 dress back in September to the opening of the “35th Deauville American Film Festival” in France.

I think Rachel looks amazing. I’m so glad she opted for bare legs and peep-toes.

I think this dress is certainly worn better with a hair up style. The neckline is so gorgeous it seems a shame to detract from it.

Red lips complete this stunning look for Rachel.

Kristen Wiig wore this dress recently to the “IFP’s 19th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards”.

I don’t even know where to start! What was she thinking?

She looks like one of Santa’s helpers in those tights.

The boots are pretty hideous too.

To me, she’s ruined a beautiful dress.

Who do you think wore it better? Or do I even need to ask?!

This dress is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter.com.

Sorry Rachel McAdams, but Blake Lively upstaged you on your big night.

Rachel should be first on this post, but I just can’t get passed how A-Friggin-Mazing Blake looks wearing a Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2010 mini lace dress, with gold Christian Louboutin glitter pigalle heels.

Most actresses tend to water down runway looks or line them if they are a bit see-through.

Not Blake Lively.

She opted out of the lined runway version to follow the recent trend started by Madonna, Lady GaGa and Carine Roitfeld by showing off her panties.

She may be showing off too much for some of you, but she looks amazing to me.

Rachel McAdams wore a black jumpsuit with a Jasmine di Milo black bustier consisting of chainmail roses from the designers Fall 2009 collection, with Catherine Malandrino Spring 2010 high waisted wide leg pants.

This is a very chic and sophisticated look yet I feel like something is missing.

Ashley Greene has fallen in love with those Sergio Rossi heels we’ve seen worn by Kristen Stewart, Claire Danes and Malin Akerman.

The nude heel works perfectly with the VBH envelope clutch she used to accessorize her white column Andy & Debb dress.

I love her antique style earrings and that divine pink lip colour.

*Sighs*

A white lace dress with thick black tights?

Really?

Eva Mendes you KNOW you are better than this.
