CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute Red Carpet

I am in actual shock that Jessica Biel thought that this two-tone Emanuel Ungaro Fall 2006 dress was a good idea.

The yellow/taupe colour combinations are interesting, but the bodice is too busy and looks unfinished with the knot and asymmetric detail.

Although boring Biel tried to spice things up, it just does not work for me.

Kate Beckinsale wore a satin YSL dress with a gold lining, which very much looked like a robe.

She wore her dress with black patent belt which also had a gold lining and black platform sandals.

Leelee Sobieski wore maxi kimono dress, which was printed with light pastel stripes and circles.

She carried a yellow clutch, which complimented the stripes on her dress and her necklace.

Salma Hayek shows off her asset in this plunge-neck electric blue Gucci gown. Unfortunately it is really creased, and looks like it could do with a iron going over it.

Lucy Liu continues to set the red carpet on fire with another stunning dress.

Her LBD really shines in the light, and the exaggerated hips gives her a nice silhouette.

Eliza Dushku sure does grab your attention in this split to the thigh Dolce & Gabbana gown.

That poor man looks like he is about to keel over.

Selena Gomez wore an ivory ruffled top with a black pencil skirt and black pumps.

I love the look, but the bangs aren’t cut correctly, as the left side appears longer than the right side.

Taylor Swift wore a similar look to Selena, but her dress is a Trina Turk Astra dress with a satin dress, a split V neck and jeweled banding at waist.

She completes her look with black peep-toes.

Rachael Leigh Cook keeps it simple in a LBD, but it is her pink butterfly adorned bag that really stands out.

Molly Sims jeweled brooch really made her two-toned grey black halter Alberta Ferretti gown more interesting.

2008 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party Red Carpet

Selena Gomez arrived on the red carpet looking so cute wearing a black Luella Fall 2007 dress, with a black sash tied at the waist. The stunning sweetheart neckline dress, had a mesh overlay with black polka dots all over.

The curly hair cutie completed her look with a black pair of peep-toes.

There was a time when Vanessa Hudgens would have been the belle of this ball, now she has competition from many brunette teen stars.

Vanessa looked very different from the caftan wearing young girl, who first walked the red carpet at this annual event 2 years ago.

What I absolutely adore are her Givenchy Shoes Bird Cage Ankle Bootie.

Miranda Cosgrove, like Selena, also wore a dress from the Luella Fall 2007 collection. Same stylist me thinks.

Miranda dress was a strapless silver metallic number, which is embellished with small stones, and has a black detail on the waist, and on one-side of the bodice.

This is a nice, young, fun dress, and the prefect choice for her.

Rumer Willis has gone and undone all the hard work she did in winning us over during her appearances on the red carpet for the House Bunny Premiere.

OK the skirt is a very expensive Azzedine Alaia skirt, but with the plunging top/bodysuit, the booties, and the hair, the overall look does not work.

I really don’t like the hair colour, Rumer should stick to black, as it suits her so well.

Nickelodeon’s Victoria Justice, another brunette beauty, went against the dark colours, that everyone was wearing, and opted for a white shift dress, which she wore under a ruched leather jacket and a steel grey boots.

Emma Roberts spent most of last week going from show to show at New York Fashion Week.

Not only did she not pick up any fashion tips, but she also did not pick up free clothes judging from this black turtle neck dress. I really don’t like her grey suede booties either.

Bar Refaeli wore an olive green silk miniHurley dress, that no doubt kept the male half of Young Hollywood walking around with their chins on the floor.

Erin Wasson might not have read the invitation, which said “Teen Vogue Party”, because she arrived at this event wearing a lace micro mini dress sans bra and with her panties showing.

Those poor boys would not have known were to look.

In saying all that, she does look fabulous. Not many could pull this look off, expect Vanessa Paradis.

04.08.08 Worst Dressed

2008 Teen Choice Awards Red Carpet – Worst Dressed

Worst Dress Award/Worst Accessory Award
Lil Mama is usually a dead cert to end up on the Worst Dressed list, because she always incorporate something wacky into her look.

We had the comforter at the MTV Music Awards, now we have this ridiculous oversized bow.

Did she make that shirt herself?

Worst Make-Up Award/Worst Hair Award
This strapless prom-esque Bradley Bayou belted dress is actually not that bad on Kim Kardashian, I am glad she did not adopt her usual hoochie style for this teen event.

Kim is on this list because of her hair and the make-up.

The foundation is a couple of shades too light for her, giving her a very Gothic look, which is not her style. Her hairline really gives away the true colour of her skin-tone.

Her hair is also very messy, and looks like it was styled in a hurry.

Needs A New Hair Stylist Award
I am so bored of Scarlett Johansson hair like this. Event after event, it is just the same old tired ‘do.

She is wearing a beautiful Matthew Williamson Beaded chiffon dress in peach with multi-coloured beads on the shoulders, which is enough detail, but she then kills the look by wearing that necklace with the very large baubles which belong on a Christmas tree.

In Desperate Need Of An Iron Award
Selena Gomez’ dress looks like it was not ironed before she left her house, therefore it just looks a total mess.

Worst At Not Maximizing Your Assets Award
Fergie has been wearing a lot of maxi dresses on the red carpet lately, and for the life of me I don’t understand why.

Fergie is only rivaled in the best legs department by Cameron Diaz, so I do not understand why she is covering then up.

I really don’t like this Etro Spring 2008 dress at all. The colours, the unflattering shape, the low slung belt.

Not a good look.

Most Boring Award
Miranda Cosgrove’s closet usually is quite dark, but I would have thought for this occasion she would have incorporated more colour into her look.

Apart from the t-bar heels, this is such a boring look.

Worst Interview Ensemble Award
Joy Lauren this is the Teen Choice Awards, you are not attending an interview at a corporate office.
