Red Carpet Fashion Awards

2013 NAACP Image Awards Red Carpet Round Up

Here are a few looks I missed from the 2013 NAACP Image Awards which took place on Friday evening at the Shrine Auditorium in California.

Tatyana Ali: The gorgeous actress, who will always be Ashley Banks in my eyes, wore a beautiful printed cowl-back gown by Kevan Hall. The amethyst Rococo-print silk charmeuse gown was styled with a Lauren Merkin reptilian clutch and Mikimoto jewels. Curled hair and a berry lip colour completed her look.

Sandra Oh: Sporting tight curly tresses, the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star looked stunning wearing a forest-green vintage Halston draped gown with an open back and leather waistband accent. A selection of gold and silver link-chain bracelets, rings and a black glitter clutch accessorized her look.

Meagan Good: The actress looked very, very good wearing a Catherine Malandrino Fall 2012 gown from the designer’s Black Label collection. Her dark-violet one-sleeved gown, with a light ruffle cascading from the knotted waist, was one of the more vibrant looks to take to the red carpet. Barely-there makeup and silver glitter heels provided the finishing touches.

Meagan is the best of the three in my eyes. The colour is so hypnotic.

Jamie-Lynn Sigler glowed in her shimmering Donna Karan plunging gown.

Sandra Oh was in my top 5 Best Dressed of the night wearing a gold embroidered Marchesa strapless gown.

This has to be one of her best ever looks on the red carpet.

Jeanne Tripplehorn wore a custom-made Naeem Khan rose gold pebble sequin cap sleeve dress with ruched front pegged skirt.

Her look was paired with gold Louboutin heels.

Eva La Rue makes up for her ALMA’s disaster by wearing a gold silk Ysa Makino gown, with a pleated front and a chunky crystal neckline.

“Rachel Getting Married” Premiere

With her incredibly fierce heels, Anne Hathaway showed off her long legs to perfection wearing a vintage Jean Louis Scherrer tulle ballerina dress, with white and silver rosettes.

The actress looked glamorous, chic and extremely feminine in her playful dress. She complete with a sweet silver clutch.

“The Duchess” Premiere

After Keira’s stunning Alexis Mabille Couture dress last week, this grey shapeless bandeau dress, falls a lot flat for me.

Love the hair though.

“Blindness” Premiere

Julianne Moore wore a bold cobalt blue floor-length YSL gown with gold accents. The red haired actress carried the most exquisite gold clutch I have ever seen.

Sandra Oh loves to make bold choices on the red carpet, and does not disappoint here wearing a taupe long sleeved Fendi Feather swing dress dress with a feathered hem.

Evangeline Lilly is picture perfect in her strapless black and white strapless dress.

Burn After Reading Premiere

From couture she wore the the Venice Film Festival Tilda Swinton decided for a milder look to the Toronto Film Festival wearing a oversized white shirt and a long black skirt.

She adds multiple necklaces for added flair.

“The Secret Life Of Bees” Premiere

Alicia Keys wears a stunning pair of Jimmy Choo snake patchwork sandals, that have touches of purple, which perfectly compliment her spectacular purple strapless charmeuse dress by Nicole Miller.

As always Dakota Fanning is cute and age appropriate in her black full-skirted Zac Posen Zibeline Poof Mini Dress dress.

Jennifer Hudson wow the crowds in her olive green Lanvin Pre-Fall 2008 gown with a black bow.

She also wowed the crowds, when a big gush of wind blew up open her dress to reveal her black spanx under her dress.

Poor thing. How very embarrassing.

Queen Latifah asymmetric dress, matched her asymmetric hairstyle.

Sophie Okonedo’s blue ruched strapless dress, showed off her sexy silhouette.

“Middle of Nowhere” Premiere

No wonder we have not seen Sophia Bush at Fashion Week.

The One Tree Hill star kept it simple in a strapless LBD.

Willa Holland also opted for a strapless LBD, but her was layered with chiffon and had a cut bow on the bust line.

The actress wore her dress with a pair of eggplant Christian Louboutin Orniron Ankle Boots

Sir Richard Branson Unite Party

Kate Hudson was the guest of honour at Sir Richard Branson’s party.

The actress with her trademark wild hair wore a strapless red knotted dress with gold heels.

Best Dressed Award

Amanda Bynes on her first major awards ceremony stood out from all the other veterans wearing this gorgeous Marchesa 2008 Resort strapless embellished gown.

Love the hair, but might have been better pulled back.

Joint Best Colour Award

This strapless cobalt blue L’Wren Scott Spring 2008 gown on Kyra Sedgwick was pure perfection.

Kyra has an amazing body, and this dress showed it off.

Joint Best Colour Award

These pictures do not do Vanessa Williams bright canary yellow Escada gown any justice. I was more even more vivid on TV.

Everything here is perfect, excluding her tan lines.

Best Over 50 Award

Glenn Close is stunning. Amazing for her 60 years.

I wish Meryl Streep would dress like this on the red carpet.

Risk That Paid Off Award

I know most of you probably hated this dress on Sandra Oh, but I loved it.

She took a risk by not choosing a major well known designer, but for me it works.

I loved the bow and the colours.

Most Fashion Forward Award

None of the other ladies on the red carpet would have dared to wear this sculpted Nina Ricci Spring 2008 strapless gown, and that is why I love Ellen Pompeo.

Best Embellishments Award

Debra Messing in Oscar de la Renta Spring 2008 stepped away from her usual black and her usual Michael Kors.

I loved the embellishments on the dress the first time I saw it on the runway, but I never picture Debra wearing it, but she does pull it off.

Best Haute Couture Award

Despite not going to any of the Haute Couture Fashion Shows at Paris Fashion Week last week, Christina still managed to get this Elie Saab Fall 2007 gown.

In typical Elie Saab fashion, the gown is embellished and uber glamourous.

Best Red Carpet Pose Award

No one can do that “sticking your ass out, while looking over your shoulder seductively pose” quite like Eva Longoria. So it was no wonder she chose a sexy Naeem Khan Spring 2008 backless dress to show of her derrière.

I am glad that there are no bangs in sight, and I see that Eva continues to favour the curly do for red carpet appearances.

Joint Best Black Award

Sans her fiance Michael Bolton, Nicollette Sheridan was stunning on the red carpet last night wearing a black strapless Marchesa gown.

This is by far the best I have ever seen her look.

Joint Best Black Award

Ana Oritz was smokin’ hot in this Pamela Dennis black body hugging gown.

Best Arm Candy Award

Keisha Whittaker looked so cute wearing this bubble gum pink Jenny Packham Spring 2008 sweetheart necklined gown.

She is always the perfect accessory for Forest Whittaker.

Most Improved Award

Brittany Snow has had a very inconsistent red carpet of late, but she looks great here in this Zuhair Murad sequined gown.

Best Pre-Fall 2008 Dress Award

Most Pre-Fall 2008 dresses are not usually red carpet ready, but Teri Hatcher looks divine in this floral Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2008 fishtailed gown.

I laughed when she was interviewed and she said that the did not believe in botox.

Best White Award

Becki Newton is back to her best wearing an Elsie Katz Couture white sequined dress.

I particularly love the tiered skirt.

Best Jewels Award

I loved Sara Ramirez’ jewels by H. Stern and Bo Chic. Her earrings were a perfect compliment to her satin strapless fuschia Angel Sanchez Spring 2008 gown.

Meh…Just OK Award

Ashely Tisdale stood up well on such a big stage wearing this white Badgley Mischka Spring 2008 dress.

Back To Her Best Award

Marion Cotillard looks beautifully chic in this corseted, pleated, and gathered Nina Ricci Spring 2008 gown.



Best Hair Award

Marcia Cross is wearing a Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2008 teal gown. I think the colour works well with her red hair.

Best Colour Block Award

Jamie-Lynn Sigler is wearing an ensemble from Calvin Klein. The teal skirt is from the Calvin Klein Pre-Fall 2008 collection.
