Red Carpet Fashion Awards

As much as I love Rachel McAdams’ Andrew GN Spring 2010 slate grey gown with embellished panels, I’m not in love with the Victorian hairstyle.

The style maybe classic to some, but for me it ages Rachel a little bit.

My blogging buddy Sophie doesn’t agree, and I’m sure many of you won’t agree with me either.

Her gown however is BDOTW worthy.

I’m totally in love with Kelly Reilly’s chiffon nude Alberta Ferretti Spring 2010 gown, which unfortunately got soaked by our Great British weather.

This gown was my favourite from that collection, so I’m happy to see it worn so beautifully on the red carpet.

Another worthy contender, and my favourite on this post.

Heather Graham opted for something younger and sexier.

The first thing that came to mind when I saw Heather wearing her L’Wren Scott ivory polka-dot dress with Christian Louboutin ivory enguille ankle boots was Sarah Jessica Parker.

The reason is because SJP wore a very similar look – in fact she wore the same boots -to the 2008 MTV Movie Awards.

I’ve got a thing for big wild hair at the moment, so I adore Heather tresses.

Unlike Rachel, Heather didn’t brave the cold for long, as she covered up with a black L’Wren Scott cape to keep her warm.

Thakoon

Ciara was easily one of my favourites at Fashion Week.

She looked so beautiful wearing a Thakoon wool crepe shift dress which had a contrast black chiffon lining and trim, paired with Louboutin pumps.

Donna Karan

Milla Jovovich’s striped Donna Karan Resort 2009 dress is so chic paired with silver pumps.

Altuzarra

I guess Altuzarra weren’t loaning out clothes for their star guests because Leighton Meester wore an eggplant Emilio de la Morena Fall 2009 dress with Proenza Schouler lace-up ankle boots…

…whilst Rachel McAdams wore a navy and white striped Boy by Band of Outsiders Spring 2010 skirt with a black top.

Charlotte Ronson

Jessica Stroup wore a flirty floral Charlotte Ronson Spring 2010 strapless dress which is so exclusive it wasn’t even seen in the Spring 2010 presentation.

She paired her dress with snake-skin strappy sandals.

Marc Jacobs

Lady GaGa wears the same Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 black cap sleeved dress embellished with jeweled stones, which Miss Piggy wore recently.

I wonder who the winner of that WWIB poll will be?

Tommy Hilfiger

I just love this red dress which Taylor Swift pairs with Stuart Weitzman black bow heels.

So vibrant.

Preen

Becki Newton wore a Preen Mixed Mono dress under a black blazer.

I would’ve loved to have seen this dress without the blazer to see more of its multi-print panel design.

Proenza Schouler

Leighton Meester doesn’t look to happy in her Proenza Schouler Resort 2010 ensemble and I don’t blame her.

Max Azria

Lucy Liu was elegant and classy as always wearing a cream fitted Max Azria dress.

Maggie Q’s Max Azria vibrant yellow dress really pops on her.

I love how she brings this strapless draped dress to life.

The Deauville American Film Festival started this weekend, and the first major star to walk the red carpet was Rachel McAdams.

Rachel wore a Stella McCartney Resort 2010 dress, which has been shortened from the gown version presented.

Rachel could have worked either look on the runway and still looked fabulous.

Her cute short sassy look was paired with black peep-toes and a bold pink lip colour on the windy evening.

A lot of people seem to think that Rachel is wearing the same jacket Rumer Willis wore just last week.

I disagree. Rumer is actually wearing a jacket to Rachel’s dress.

Rumer’s jacket has a deep plunge and padded shoulders, to Rachel’s dress with an nude illusion panel on the front.

The only similarities for me is the lace, long sleeves and the designer.

I love premiere look, but I wasn’t so crazy about the other Stella McCartney Resort 2010 blue striped dress Rachel wore to the photocall.

The dress needed the belt or any belt to give it some shape, plus I would’ve preferred a daintier heel.

You many remember Diane Kruger wore the a tulip skirt in this same striped blue material recently.

My chin hit the floor when I saw Rachel McAdams wearing a stunning white Emilio Pucci Resort 2010 ruched dress with a very deep plunge.

Mostly because she looks amazing in the dress, but secondly because the actress deepen the plunge to make the dress even sexier than it appears on the runway.

Who would have thought Rachel could pull of a sex kitten look?

Her look was paired with black patent Christian Louboutin Pigalle heels, whilst her peachy glow and pink lips worked well with her cute curly bob.

Brad Pitt was also there in an official capacity as one of the movie’s producers, and he was also decked out in white.

“The Time Traveler’s Wife” hits screens this Friday.

Comic Con Day 2

Jennifer Connelly can go either way. Chic or edgy.

On this occasion she opted for chic, wearing a navy RM by Roland Mouret Mistral long sleeve dress with silver strappy sandals.

The pencil dress with pleated detailing on the bodice gives Jennifer a sleek silhouette.

Effortless and gorgeous as always.

Last week I wondered if Anna Faris was glowing in her Jay Godfrey dress. Now I realise that it’s the San Diego sunshine that is giving the stars at “Comic Con” a positive glow.

Regular readers will know I am dead against Audrina Patridge’s lighter locks, but when she looks this beautiful in her fitted cream Karl Lagerfeld dress with matching Christian Louboutin Differa sandals, I can’t help but think this is one of her best ever red carpet looks.

My feelings for Hervé Léger dresses changes with each wearer.

On Kim Kardashian I hate them, but I think Kristin Bell looks really cute in her forest green dress.

I really wish more stars would wear the more interesting Fall 2009 pieces, but Kristin manages to stay on the right side of tasteful so I can forgive on this occasion.

Maybe that’s because she’s not showing us her bootie in the dress and also she paired her dress with a stunning necklace, and nude Jimmy Choo’s.

Mary Lynn Rajskub looks adorable wearing a purple Black Halo bustier pleated dress.

Her sleeveless dress has chiffon shoulder straps, a pleated A-line skirt and a red skinny leather belt. She pairs her gorg dress with nude heels.

This is one of my favourite looks of this event.

I love bright colours on the red carpet and Ashley Greene more than fulfills my love wearing a bright fuschia pink Doucette Duvall Spring 2009 dress, which she simply pairs with Jimmy Choo Verity sandals.

Anita Briem has the same idea, but she paired her Jimmy Choo Verity sandals with a cute belted black playsuit.

As much as Rachel McAdams’ embellished tank top is crying for attention, I’m instantly drawn to her Casadei Mary Janes.

They’re a vision of pure beauty.

Zoe Saldana is very much the 2009 ‘Can’t Step A Foot Wrong On The Red Carpet’  Thandie Newton.

This girl can do no wrong at the moment.

Even when her look consists of a simple white blouse with a black balloon shaped mini skirt with banded waistline she’s still amazing.

She jazzes up her look with floral t-bar heels.

Wow..the slide continues.

I’m not expecting Megan Fox to wear gowns every time she hits the red carpet, but she has to work on her casual look because it seems she can only give us a sexy look successfully.

Her looks consists of a Gucci Fall 2009 blue micro jacquard silk lurex boxy spencer jacket, a black sheer top and black jeans.

Back in January Penelope Cruz was seen arriving at the Buffalo Club Santa Monica, wearing a L’Wren Scott Globule lace shift dress.

She wore her dress with black peep-toes, and without the red runway belt.

Rachel McAdams really turned up the style stakes, whilst out and about in New York last month. The actress looked adorable in the same gorgeous dress, with a Brian Reyes coat.

She gets extra points for teaming her dress with the red runway belt, which makes the dress more interesting, so she wins for me.


This dress is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $3,495, or the international site for £1,965/€2,411.45.

I was so happy to see Rachel McAdams on the cover of Marie Claire US.

Not only because she looks so beautiful on the cover, but also because she’s wearing a gorgeous orange Sophia Kokosalaki dress. I really hoped to see this collection on the red carpet, but I guess for now, I’m happy to see it in print.

Instead of a standard type of interview, which would have included her talking about her upcoming film, State of Play, Rachel joined the magazine’s book club, discussing the novel Prodigal Summer.

She said “I absolutely fell in love with this book. I don’t think I got out of bed for three days.”

The magazine hits newsstand April 14.
