Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

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.
