2009 CFDA Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
Zoe Saldana continues to impress me. “Star Trek” has push her in the limelight, but her great choices in on the red carpet increase her star status.

Take this Calvin Klein Resort 2010 grey dress for example. It was plain and quite boring on the runway, but Zoe brings it to life.

She makes it sexy and sassy without much effort.

Did It Hurt When You Fell From Heaven? Award
*Sighs*

Could Anja Rubik be anymore beautiful? Anja and Halle Berry should be allow to walk amongst us normal folk.

The stunning supermodel arriving looking angelic wearing a white Kaufman Franco Fall 2009 one-shouldered gown.

She wore the gown without it’s ruffled detail on the behind, which showed how dangerously low the dress was cut.

On some Megan Fox this would have been deemed trashy, but on Anja *sighs* just damn sexy.

Best Use of Colour Award
There’s always a 50/50 split when it comes to Blake Lively.

I hope when you see her looking drop dead gorgeous wearing this neon pink Michael Kors Fall 2009 strapless sheath dress, more of you will be swayed to liking her.

Her twins aren’t on display, she looks youthful, vibrant and sexy.

What’s not to love?

Best Modification Award
Jason Wu really understood his muse for the night, as he took this sophisticated business-like runway dress and turned it into a sexy mini for Diane Kruger.

Diane would look great in a bin liner lets face it, but the colour, length, fabric and embellished embroidered shoulders really looks amazing on her.

I hate to be picky but I really wish she would change her hairstyle more often. I feel like we see this style a lot.

Model Magic Award
Many of you who loved the Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 collection were non to happy when Rihanna arrived at the Met Gala wearing a black suit from the collection.

Molly Sims should bring that enthusiasm back because she looked so cute and playful wearing a Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 strapless dress, with a Marilyn Monroe print emblazoned on it.

Risk That Paid Off Award
This is a rare red carpet outing for Kirsten Dunst.

The actress always opts for bold pieces which don’t always work, but on this occasion she looks amazing.

Rodarte is never a safe choice. The pieces are bold, edgy and dynamic plus you need the right kind of attitude to pull a Rodarte piece off.

She totally does with grey Nicholas Kirkwood heels.

Most Theatrical Award
At first I really disliked Doutzen Kroes in this red Zac Posen gown, mostly because I thought it was too grand for her. Plus I’m so used to seeing her in Herve Leger I didn’t quite think it was her style.

Then I realised how much better the dress looks without the gold belt, and appreciated the way she had made an effort to make the gown work for her.

Best Vintage Award
As much as I appreciate the Olsen twins picking interesting vintage pieces, I would love to see them in something off-the-runway more often.

Ashley Olsen wore an orange vintage gown with gold leaf embroidery around the shoulders. Her look was complete with Van Cleef & Arpels jewels and Versace heels.

Some might say it’s a little too big for her. I would say it’s better than a bandage dress.

Glorious Glow Award
Even if Heidi Klum wasn’t pregnant and wearing a silver crushed lame Michael Kors asymmetrical mini dress, she would still glow. So these added elements only make her more beautiful.

Her silver Christian Louboutin Anthracite Ole Ole heels and clutch matched her dress, but it’s her earrings I’m drooling over.

Best Black Award
Claire Danes is never one I can get excited about on the red carpet, but I do love her quiet elegant style. Some would call it boring, for me is very understated.

The actress looked elegant wearing a black Narciso Rodriguez embroidered black silk crepe gown which was cut low at the front and open at the back.

Best Legs Award
Model Hilary Rhoda arrived wearing a gorgeous one-shouldered Calvin Klein dress which showed off how incredibly long her pins are.

If you got it flaunt it honey.

Her look was completed with her hair pulled back in a tight bun and a VBH clutch.

Stepping Out Of Her Comfort Zone Award
Maggie Grace is usually very boring on the red carpet, so imagine my surprise to see her wearing this Christian Siriano Spring 2009 grey ruffled confection.

Every time I see a variation of this dress on the red carpet it’s belted.

It would be nice to see it without a belt if its worn again in the future, but the belt does work for Maggie here.

Best Accessories Award
Stylist Rachel Zoe arrived wearing a Louis Vuitton peachy gown, which I first thought was a Marc Jacobs gown as it resembles the finale gowns that were presented in the Spring 2009 collection, but her twitter message confirm that it’s Louis Vuitton.

Her golden accessories including a Louis Vuitton clutch, vintage Chanel earrings, plus Yossi Harari rings and bracelets.

Simple Yet Always Elegant Award
Kerry Washington has opted for a lot of bold choices lately wearing Louis Vuitton edgy ensembles, so it’s nice to see her bring her look back to a softer more elegant style we usually associate her with.

Last night she glowed wearing a silverly grey Doo.Ri Resort 2010 sleeveless gown with a plunging neckline.

Her jewels were also simple and she opted for a matching silver Swarovski clutch.

Best Embellishments Award
Whist Melissa George’s Nicole Miller gown has no shape, I am totally captivated by the embroidered crystals on her strapless gown.  Exquisite.

Black to Black Award
Yes I’m referring to Coco Rocha hair, which she debut on her blog a few weeks ago.

The supermodel wore an asymmetrical Michael Kors red Resort 2010 slide dress with a black print.

Her look was paired with a gold cuff, black strappy sandals and a matching clutch.

The Wow Moment Award
Comedian Tracey Ullman really shocked me when I saw her in this glorious red Doo.Ri gown with an asymmetrical neckline.

I don’t think I have ever seen her look so fabulous.

No BoHo Award
Finally Whitney Port has ditched that hippy chick look, for a fresh sophisticated look wearing a Luca Luca Fall 2009 halter gown.

The draped silver beaded gown sparkled so beautifully. She really out did herself here. I’m totally wowed by her

13th Annual Webby Awards

Last night was the ‘Webby Awards’, but with all the long tanned legs on display, it was more like the ‘Leggy Awards’.

Lake Bell arrived wearing a navy Rag & Bone one shoulder dress, with two black panels on the front and back of the dress.

I don’t think this is an easy dress to pull off, but Lake does. She looks sexy, and sassy, without looking trashy at all.

Roger Vivier scoubidou woven patent sandals, and a black clutch complete the look.

Molly Sims loves showing off her golden tan.

On this occasion she glows in a hot pink, patterned sequined mini sleeveless dress, paired with tan Louboutin peep-toes.

Mother of one, Alessandra Ambrosio, opts for the head-to-toe Balmain runway look, including the Balmain Crystal embellished studded sandals.

This for me is a very predictable look for a Victoria’s Secret Angel…

…much like Doutzen Kroes’ Hervé Léger banded ombré dress.

Stylist Rachel Zoe opted out of wearing a mini, in favour of this cold-shoulder ivory gown, with gold embellishments.

I love her lighter locks.

Update: I sent a twitter message to Rachel asking who her dress was by, and I was pleasantly surprised to get a reply. She was wearing vintage Halston.

“Home” LA Eco Garden Picnic and Screening

Redemption.

After a major blip at the MTV Movie Awards, Cameron Diaz is back in my good books, after she arrived at this event looking sensational wearing a Stella McCartney Resort 2010 dress.

You may remember just last week, Stella McCartney gave us a preview of this bold shouldered, sculptural hip dress, when she attended the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition Preview Party.

The white dress with black embroidered details, was paired with black pumps and black plexi bag both by Stella McCartney.

Ruby red lips, completed this simple, yet stunning look.

I’m getting a slight Gothic vibe from Charlize Theron, with the all black look, pale face and red lips.

Her black tank and black blazer, were paired with black lace cut out leggings from Stella’s Fall 2009 collection.

I’m not crazy about the look, but I don’t hate it either.

Liv Tyler can wear anything, and still look so fabulous.

This is a classic example were she just throws on a Stella McCartney tunic dress with champagne-coloured satin heels, and she’s instantly gorgeous.

She has simple make-up, just got out of bed hair, no accessories, no jewels…no fair.

Anjelica Huston works a aqua blue dupioni Stella McCartney Spring 2009 boyfriend blazer, with a all navy ensemble.

Normally I would frown at knee-high biker-style boots on the red carpet, especially in summer, but Daryl Hannah some how makes it work for her.

She could have worn thick black tights with her mini Stella McCartney dress, but she opted for sheer tights instead. Kudos.

Emily Deschanel wore a black leopard print t-shirt, black skinny trousers and grey pumps, for this simple youthful look.

Rachel Zoe would have styled her clients Cameron Diaz and Liv Tyler for this event, so she would known the dress code. But she opted to go against the grain, and wear a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 oriental-inspired kimono vest, with a feathered tasseled obi belt. Why? Because she can.

Her look was completed with navy silk cropped trousers, a black clutch and those YSL Trib Two’s.

Katharine McPhee also exuded a laid back casual look wearing a black silk dress, with a white blazer, black strappy sandals and beaded clutch all by Stella McCartney.

I adore that clutch. I need it in my life.

Rosario Dawson was elegantly chic wearing a in a navy dress with voluminous sleeves, and a cute bow for added interest.

Again, no accessories were needed, just grey pumps.

Bravo’s 2nd Annual A-List Awards

RUINED, Ruined, ruined. I can never look at this Chloe Spring 2009 dress with any type of love or affection since it has been worn by Aubrey O’Day.

I refused to love anything she has worn, even if she did wear it in a pretty peachy colour.

She should have strapped her breast down, or worn the dress with the runway belt, then maybe the dress wouldn’t have been bunch up around her breasts, making the dress look incredibly awkward.

*crys – Whhhyyyeeee*

Jenny McCartney does her best to erase the previous image from my mind, by looking gorgeous in a tropical print Gucci Spring 2009 mini dress, worn with a taupe leather wrap around tie-belt.

Her hair is not rocking my world, but her Gucci Spring 2009 platform heels are.

With her blunt bob, Paris Hilton wears a fuchsia pink dress, which is structured to give her more hips.

The star wears her Santino Rice dress with her favourite silver Gina pumps, and her very favourite Christian Louboutin Maykimay clutch.

Rachel Zoe sure does love her flowing gowns. This grey chiffon Notte by Marchesa gown, has wonderful gold embellished neckline.

I must say she’s really looking good these days.

I nearly fell off my chair when I saw Shanna Moakler wearing this strapless Oscar de la Renta black silk faille Shibori dress from the Spring 2009 collection.

Don’t get me wrong she looks fantastic in the black and white dress, but it’s not a brand I would’ve thought she would wear.

I like it when celebs surprise me on the red carpet.

Bethenny Frankel wore a the dove grey gown version of the RM by Roland Mouret Moon dress, we were drooling over 2 years ago, when it was first worn by Victoria Beckham.

She does look amazing in this gown. The beauty of Roland Mouret’s work is that it’s timeless.

Chelsea Handler is not one I would normally watch on the red carpet, but I love her Dolce & Gabbana bustier tulip dress, and matching gold Mary Norton clutch.

What lets her down – I’m sure you’ll agree – is her hair.

From the D List, to this so called A List event, Kathy Griffin for once looks outstanding in her black sequined dress. I’m sure she opened her mouth and ruined everything, but in pictures she looks great.

Kelly Rowland’s electric blue Issa plunge front dress is right on trend, but that curly ‘do is bringing back painful jheri curl memories.

After her maroon Prada gown from a few weeks ago, Milla Jovovich appears to have fallen in love with the colour, as she wore a maroon dress again for this event.

Gold accessories were the perfect touch, to add more warmth to this look.

Kim Kardashian wears a very sexy black velvet Thierry Mugler dress with black accessories, including a black Mary Norton clutch.

The dress really does stand out, and gives her a great silhouette, but my problem is that this dress feels to serious for such a light-hearted event. She should have saved this for a more worthy event.

Wearing waaaayyy too much foundation, Khloe Kardashian wears a multi-coloured belt with her LBD. The only thing I like here are her nude accessories, as you know they are very on trend.

Celebs sure do love Dolce & Gabbana’s white bustier dresses. This is the second one of the weekend. First the gown version was worn by Marisa Miller at the CMAs, now Padma Lakshmi.
