Red Carpet Fashion Awards


TV presenters at the Oscars tend to be overlooked because they’re there to do a job, and everyone looks to the actresses.

This post is to put the focus on them before the Angelina Jolie’s and Kate’s Winslet’s turn up.

Samantha Harris is presenting on The Insider tonight, and she is wearing a cobalt blue chiffon one-shoulder gown from Gustavo Cadile’s Spring 2009 collection.

Lisa Rinna is presenting for TV Guide Channel, and wearing a purple chiffon tiered skirt halter gown from Gustavo Cadile’s Fall 2009 collection.


Giuliana Rancic is presenting for E! Live from the Red Carpet wearing a Pamella Roland’s burgundy metallic jacquard single strap body hugging bustier gown, straight from this weeks Fall 2009 collection.

Maria Menounos is presenting for Access Hollywood wearing a gorgeous strapless Randi Rahm gown, with a full skirt, which is embroidered with floral rosettes.

I love Samantha’s blue Gustavo Cadile gown, what about you?

MTV and ServiceNation’s “Be The Change: Live From The Inaugural Ball”

Demi Moore continues to blow me away.

She looks outstanding wearing a black strapless Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2009 cocktail dress, with a folded detail on the front of her skirt.

Her hair was wavy, make-up flawless, and she is starting to become one of my girl crushes.

Rosario Dawson showed off her enviable hourglass figure, wearing a body-con black satin Dolce & Gabbana gown.

Samantha Harris looked chic in a Farah Angsana Fall 2008 red chiffon gown with a pleated bodice.

The Creative Coalition’s 2009 Inaugural Ball

Anne Hathaway wore this red chiffon Dior gown, which had a gold embellishment on the empire line.

I do like the dress, but had the plunge not been so low, and had her shoulders been down instead of hunched up, I would have liked this even more.

I adore this strapless nude multi-tiered gown that Rachael Leigh Cook wore last night.

The dress is ultra-feminine with ruching on the bodice to add the floaty, girlie look.

Kim Raver wore a silvery strapless J. Mendel gown, with embellished detail on the bodice. She matched her dress with a silver clutch and a tasseled silver necklace.

Desperate Housewives actress Dana Delany was very elegant in a olive taffeta gown.

Alfre Woodard who also stared in Desperate Housewives, wore a Pamella Roland elegant white silk crepe strapless evening gown with a ruched bodice.

The Inaugural Purple Ball

Ashley Judd wore a silver one-shouldered Monique Lhuillier Spring 2008 gown with a bubbled tiered detail on the skirt.

Joint Best Dressed/Golden Girl Award
Now this is how you bring glamour to the red carpet.

Jennifer Morrison did not disappoint, as she took to the red carpet last night wearing a gold and silver metallic cocktail dress from the Gianfranco Ferre Spring 2008 collection, which was open at the back.

She complimented her dress with satin pewter Christian Louboutin slingbacks.

Joint Best Dressed/Lady In Red Award
Marisa Tomei’s red strapless Donna Karan dress is simply breath-taking and her gold accessories compliment her dress perfectly.

I particularly love the gathering detail on the skirt, and asymmetrical hem.

Best Asymmetrical Award
Like her mum Kate Hudson is so full of energy and life, so she picked this stand-out teal Gucci Spring 2009 asymmetrical gown, with a palm tree print to match her vibrant personality.

The actress completed her look with matching two-toned Giuseppe Zanotti platforms, and Jack Vartanian black and white rings.

Best Gown Award
There is always something so calm and serene about Olivia Wilde. I would imagine she took 5 minutes to get ready for this awards do, because she looks so effortlessly beautiful wearing this white halter BCBG Max Azria gown, which she compliments with gold accessories.

She completed her look with a matching white Jimmy Choo clutch.

Best LBD Award
Teri Hatcher is not the most consistent on the red carpet, but the Desperate Housewives star looked very sexy in her black satin Givenchy Haute Couture vintage dress from Decades Inc.

I love the bows on each hip. Her pointy pumps help elongate her already very long legs.

Surprisingly fabulous.

Best Dressed Teen Award
Much improved on yesterday’s dress, Dakota Fanning is simply gorgeous in this electric blue one-shouldered BCBG mini dress. Grown up, yet still age appropriate.

Best Couture Award
Queen Latifah wore a striking purple Georges Chakra couture gown.

The hosts flowing chiffon halter gown had a jeweled neckline, with some jewels cascading down the front of her gown, which only made her sparkle more.

Best Dressed Curves Award
Queen Latifah wore a custom emerald green one-shoulder Gustavo Cadile gown, when she collected an award for Favorite Independent Movie for Secret Life of Bees.

The curvacious star’s gown was detailed with embellishments on her shoulder.

Best Non Actress Award
Dancing with the Stars host Samantha Harris wore a white one-shouldered David Meister dress, with a silver beaded shoulder.

She complimented her white hot dress with silver strappy sandals.

Best Black Award
Christina Applegate wore a black chiffon Jenny Packham gown, when she collected her award for Favorite Female TV Star.

The embellishments stop this from becoming a boring black dress.

Best Herve Leger Award
Yes I know you are all tired of Herve Leger on the red carpet, but this was one of the best from the Fall 2008 collection. Jessica Stroup looked gorgeous when she took to the red carpet last night. Not so crazy about her shoe choice though.

Finally Those Red Streaks Have Gone Award
Jordin Sparks finally ditched those red streaks which she wore to every red carpet event last year. I’m glad it was just a 2008 fad.

The singer arrived wearing a vibrant silk blue pleated Jessica McClintock, with a rosette detail on the hip. She accessorized with gold sandals and a matching clutch.

Best TV Star Award
90210 actress Lori Laughlin wore a silver shimmering Gustavo Cadile dress, which she accessorized with a Swarovski clutch and jewels.

That’s Hot Award
This type of low-cut, full skirted Jenny Packham dress is perfect for Paris Hilton. The golden colour compliments her colouring, and I adore the floral appliqué and gold sequins which cover the dress.

She completed her look with large gold metallic pumps, and a cute Fendi bag.

Best Necklace/Best Mini Strapless Award
Malin Akerman wore a strapless colourblock dress by Jay Godfrey, which was a cute flirty choice.

She punched up her look with a large silver statement necklace and chunky bangles.

Best Floral Award
Carrie Underwood had the most changes of the night. She first wore a Naeem Khan Pre-Fall 2009 gown on the red carpet.

This floral dress is really beautiful, as it also shimmers with the bead work and sequin embellishment. She completed her look with Cinta by John Hardy jewels, and a Mary Norton clutch.

Best Use Of Colour Award
Carrie wore a heavily embellished tangerine Jenny Packham Spring 2009 cocktail dress, when she accept her award for Favorite Female Singer.

Best Backstage Award
For her third and final dress, the Country singer wore a lime green empire-waist tiered gown.

It must have been an exhausting night for Miss Underwood with all those custom changes.

She completed her look with Cinta by John Hardy jewels.
