Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Renee Zellweger was inducted into the Hall of Fame on ‘Vanity Fair’s 70th Annual International Best-Dressed List’, which I think was well deserved.

I love Renee. She always wears Carolina Herrera, yet it never becomes boring or stale mostly because the dresses are modified to suit the actress chic style.

She once went a whole year only wearing strapless dresses, but she mixes things up a lot more now.

On Saturday she attended a special screening of her new movie “My One and Only”, attended by Marc Jacobs, Jon Bon Jovi, and Tory Burch.

Renee looked radiant wearing a Carolina Herrera Resort 2010 halter dress, with a silver floral print and a silver sash on the waist.

The dress of course has been modified from the runway, as we’ve come to expect.

Her dress was paired with silver strappy sandals.

Yesterday Renee started off her day with an appearance on ‘Good Morning America’.

The surprised thing here is not the large orange Hermes Birkin – because orange was one of the main colours used in the Carolina Herrera Resort 2010 collection – the surprise is that her grey pencil dress with a tie detail on the shoulder was not modified. It’s straight off-the-rack. *shock*

Renee looked relaxed teaming her dress aviator sunglasses and nude heels.

Despite being romantically linked to Bradley Cooper, Renee arriving solo for the special screening of her movie in New York last night.

Wearing a figure-hugging off-the-shoulder Carolina Herrera dress with a jewel waistband, Renee looked every inch a Hollywood star on the red carpet.

I love the dark taupe colour of her dress paired with her nude heels from earlier in the day. For me she’s head-to-toe perfection.

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.
