Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Selita Ebanks attended the 2011 Children Of The City Benefit which took place in New York City last night.

Whilst I love this Christian Cota Fall 2011 look, I have very mixed feelings about Selita’s presentation.

The leopard metallic lace drape neck top paired with a painted layered pencil skirt was worn sans bra on the runway.

It would have been a huge mistake for Selita not wear a bra with this dress, especially considering she was attending a children’s benefit, but I hate the exposed bra.

A skin-tone lining would’ve been preferred as the bra is making the look come off a tad tacky, which is a shame considering the workmanship of this gorgeous look.

Rihanna performed “California King Bed,” on American Idol wearing a Carlos Miele Fall 2011 gown.

I was so blown away by the singer in this stunning rose velvet halter gown with a lattice detail down the front, that I made her my BDOTW.

Model Selita Ebanks wore the same gown when she attended the Samsung Hope for Children Gala New York City earlier this month.

The look doesn’t even come close to having the same affect on me.

I don’t like Selita’s hair, nor her heavy make-up.

I much prefer Rihanna’s slightly more curvaceous body in the gown, plus her more complementary neutral make-up so she wins by a long mile for me.

Solange Knowles, Cassie and Selita Ebanks attended the Carol’s Daughter Event At Sephora in New York City yesterday.

The trio – who are the new faces of haircare line Carol’s Daughter – all opted for very different looks.

Solange rocked her afro whilst wearing a lemon pant suit with a white shirt and python sandals.

Cassie showcased her Mohawk wearing a caramel Jen Kao knit mini dress with Isabel Marant Gava cotton-raffia and leather pumps and gold hooped earrings.

Selita sported a new blunt red bob wearing Christian Louboutin ‘Lady Daf’ pumps and a Karen Millen Tribal tutu dress Selena Gomez would pass on for being too cutesy.

Solange is the only one working her look.

The other two have been very misguided.

Here are the rest of the looks from the New Yorkers For Children Spring Dinner Dance.

Rose McGowan: I love Rose, but I’ve seen this Dolce & Gabbana gown so many times in so many colours that I’m over it, despite it looking awesome on her. Her look is enhanced with a stunning Lorraine Schwartz necklace.

Tinsley Mortimer: I’m not sure what she was thinking, but that’s too much dress for someone so petite. Her modified Christian Dior Fall 2008 dress is overwhelming her.

Back in July 2010 Jessica Alba wore this stunning red Valentino Fall 2010 ruffled one-shoulder gown to a grand soirée hosted by Valentino himself in Paris. The event celebrated the opening of the Valentino Archives.

Her hair was styled into an updo with a few pieces framing her face.

A few bracelets and a nude clutch completed the look.

Several months later Selita Ebanks wore the same gown to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in Hollywood with a sleek updo and complementary jewels.

Jessica wins for me. I love the addition of the nude clutch which complements the soft nude ruffles plus I love her more dramatic train.

Calvin Klein Creative Director Francisco Costa hosted an intimate private dinner for key press and celebrities at the exclusive Restaurant Apicius in Paris during Couture Fashion Week back in July 2009.

Claire Danes looked stunning wearing a Calvin Klein Fall 2009 silver embellished dress with a jagged hem.

The elegant actress didn’t over accessorize her dazzling dress as she just added nude strappy sandals and carried a white clutch.

Selita Ebanks wore the same dress grand opening of Marquee Nightclub at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas last week.

She looked amazing from the ankles up.

What possessed her to wear black pumps with this dress will forever remain a mystery to me.

Claire wins by a very long mile.
