Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Robin Wright glided down the red carpet at the 2011 Doha Tribeca Film Festival in Qatar on Saturday night.

She opted to wear an Elie Saab Spring 2007 Couture gown from the designer’s archives.

The black strapless tulle gown was worn with a drape detail on one shoulder which cascades down her back into a flowing train.

Robin opted to go light on the jewels and she didn’t carry a clutch to allow the focus to be on her dramatic black gown.

Glossy pink lips and side-sweeping bangs completed her look.

Robin Wright attended the 2011 Gucci Award for Women in Cinema event at Hotel Cipriani this past Friday.

The actress, who is a Juror at the event, chose a stunning Gucci Resort 2012 gold sequin-embroidered georgette gown.
She sparkled on the red carpet, adding Gucci accessories including gold sequin evening sandals, a black suede clutch with gold leather trim, an 18 karat yellow gold horsebit bracelet with brown diamonds and a matching yellow gold ring.
Robin finished her look by wearing her cropped blonde hair swept across her forehead and adding a touch of pink lipgloss.

She looks beautiful in this dress, which reminds me of liquid gold.

I like that she opted not to wear the oversized floral brooch like the model. It’s gorgeous enough as it is.

Thandie Newton wore this sophisticated Vivienne Westwood Red Label Spring 2011 tailored grey suit whilst out promoting her movie “For Colored Girls” back in October last year.

Managing to score the outfit just weeks after it walked the runway at London Fashion Week, Thandie looks impossibly chic, adding red studded Stella McCartney heels and a brown suede Miu Miu tote.

Her makeup is flawless and she is simply glowing. I love how the suit fits her so perfectly and that her accessories add some oomph to the grey.

Robin Wright recently wore the same suit to the Washington DC Premiere of her movie “The Conspirator” and what a contrast.

The jacket is very ill-fitting and the pants don’t seem to taper as well on her as they did on Thandie. Paired with nothing but basic black pointed heels, Robin’s look is extremely lack-lustre. I also find the outfit to be a bit of an odd choice for a red carpet premiere.

For me, there’s no question about who the winner is here. Thandie gets it spot on with a better fit, fresh makeup, a chic hairdo and eye-catching accessories. Robin, on the other hand, failed to hit the mark. It’s extremely hard to see past such a poor fit and it doesn’t help that she made zero attempts to jazz up her look with great accessories.

Robin Wright totally redeemed herself at “The Conspirator” New York Premiere last night.

We weren’t too keen on her Westwood suit yesterday, but what a difference 24 hours makes.

She did a complete 180 wearing a crispy white Julien Macdonald pant suit which sharply nips her in at the waist, and has silver accents on the pants.

Robin’s most improved look of the week also included a sexy pair of silver Jimmy Choo ‘Maiden’ strappy sandals and pink glossy lips.

I was very disappointed by Robin Wright’s look on the red carpet at the Washington DC Premiere for “The Conspirator.”

This is because I can clearly remember how amazing this Vivienne Westwood Red Label Spring 2011 grey suit looked when it was worn by Thandie Newton.

Even without the Thandie comparison her look isn’t really saying anything, nor is it doing anything for me. I also find the fit awkward.

Robin has, and can do so much better.

Had she opted for footwear that was more interesting, I still think I would struggle to find a positive from this look.
