Red Carpet Fashion Awards

You may think that all the glamour headed to Cannes this week, well Iman & co., are proving that there is still a lot left in New York.

The supermodel is a veteran on the red carpet, so she knew that her emerald embroidered asymmetrical Oscar de la Renta Resort 2009 gown stands alone.

Minimalism is key with a statement dress like this one, so she wisely kept accessories to just a ring, and a clutch.

Ivanka Trump was the first of many to opt for a Carolina Herrera gown at this gala.

Her lapis blue metallic strapless gown, was from the recent Fall 2009 collection.

I would have loved to have seen her carry a pewter clutch, the black does nothing for me. The same applies to that large necklace.

Lindsay Price didn’t pick a show stopping piece like the previous two, but it needn’t have been, because her textured silk Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 teal gown, with a marigold bow detail, and cascading ruffles is so charming.

Her Lipstick Jungle co-star Kim Raver, did pick a show-stopping piece. Well it was show-stopping on the runway. On Kim, not so much.

This lapis blue and lavender gown, got lost in translation.

Her hair, make-up, and yellow gold cuff, all don’t work for me either.

Lynda Carter ages so gracefully. She was my heroine as Wonder Woman, and she still looks wonderful today wearing a Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 gown, with a fur shrug.

The lurex black and white rose print gown is accented with black organza ruffles.

Hilary Rhoda’s ivory Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 ruffled gown, had embroidered details on the waist and straps.

Belen Rueda wore it with a lot more conviction at the 2009 Goya Awards. On Hilary it’s just meh.

Since no one else is speaking up, I will say it. Coco Rocha you need to ditch the red hair. It’s starting to look very Ronald McDonald. Please return to your darker locks immediately.

Her teal off-the-shoulder Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 layered gown is exquisite, but I preferred it on the runway. Coco looks better wearing edgier pieces.

Veronica Webb’s Rachel Roy Fall 2009 champagne silk gown, just melts against her caramel skin.

I really like the asymmetrical neckline, which is balanced against the asymmetrical chiffon hemline.

We don’t need a look book to know that Rene Zellweger is wearing Carolina Herrera. Past experience, and that smoke jacquard material from the Fall 2009 collection is evidence enough.

I love the gown especially the dramatic skirt, but the posing is very editorial.

Eva La Rue is working this season’s nude trend to maximum effect.

Claire Danes opted for a Christian Louboutin silver sandals, with her silk Stella McCartney navy dress.

The swirling nature of the dress is interesting, but Claire fails to breath any life into it.

Deborah Roberts is so utterly captivating in this pink asymmetrical gown, I had to feature her.

The ruffled neckline might be a bit heavy, for some, but it’s an outstanding gown, which is event appropriate.

Mariska Hargitay’s teal and navy banded gown, looks a bit snug on her. This type of material can be unforgiving.

Kelly Ripa really lets me down here. She’s usually so colourful and vibrant. On this occasion she is so muted.

Not like her at all.

In 2007, Renee Zellweger didn’t step on the red carpet unless she was in a strapless dress.

Most of those dress were modified from the runway, and it appears after some variety in 2008, Renee has returned to the style she loves best…of course in Carolina Herrera.

Last night Renee did her part for the troops, giving thanks to members of the United States military, at the USO Metropolitan Washington Awards Dinner.

Her Carolina Herrera Fall 2009 black strapless embroidered dress, has been hugely modified from the runway as you can see, but still recognizable from the leafy embroidery.

Renee is no stranger to doing this. She also modified a dress for the Leatherheads Paris premiere.

I’m not sure about you, but I prefer the runway version, although their is a lot of charm in her strapless version.

Kylie Minogue proved that a fabulous couture dress, shouldn’t reside in the archives forever.

The singer/actress wore this Chanel Fall 2002 Couture dress to this years BAFTA Awards in London, over 6 years after Renee Zellweger had worn the same dress to the Chicago London premiere in 2002.

Both women look amazing, so for me this contest will go down to the heels.

Renee wore silver strappy heels, whilst Kylie wore gold. Given the opportunity to wear this dress, I would have worn silver heels, but the black strap on Renee’s heels cheapens the look for me, so Kylie wins.

Renee Zellweger is on the cover of both the February 2009 edition of US and UK Marie Claire.

On the US cover she is wearing a hot pink Antonio Berardi shirt dress, and on the UK cover she is wearing a taupe sequined dress from 3.1 Phillip Lim with Christian Dior gladiator heels.

Renee is not up for any awards this season, but that has not stopped her from appearing on the red carpet. Her most noteworthy appearance was at the Golden Globes wearing Carolina Herrera.

We are bound to see more of Renee on the red carpet, as she is busy promoting her movie, New in Town.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On marriage: “I never say never about anything, because I look back on my own personal history and it shocks me. If I would ever have said, ‘Oh for sure this is going to be in my future,’ most of my experiences would not have been on my list. So I don’t even bother thinking about it, because I’ve learned that there’s no anticipating that stuff.”

On her love life: “The thing is, I’m away all the time. I suppose if I sat still long enough to get to know somebody beyond a dinner date, maybe. But I don’t feel like my life is empty or that I have to make something happen. I have projects to develop. I want to study American history and political science, live in an apartment in France, and fix my bad French. And is there really time for all of it? Last summer, when I said it wasn’t the right time for something I wanted to do, a friend asked, ‘How long are you going to live?’ I’m not single, I’m busy. That’s my line.”

Now I am not suggesting for one second that these red asymmetrical dresses are the same, but they are similar in their style.

The second noteworthy thing is that Renee Zellweger has only worn two red asymmetrical dresses within one year, and they were both for her appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman.

When I did a blog post on Diane Kruger’s love for black bows, Wendy B wondered if it was a conscious thing, or if she just gravitated towards it, without realizing she’d wore it before.

I think that Diane just gravitated towards the bows, and I think the same would apply to Renee and her red asymmetrical dresses.
