Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Former Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks was the first celebrity to wear a look from Victoria Beckham’s dress collection back in March 2009 when she attended the New Yorkers for Children reception hosted by Vogue.

Since then the model has become obsessed with VBs dresses.

Her most recent look being worn last night to the “Absolut Brooklyn launch” hosted by Absolut Vodka and Spike Lee and on Wednesday night when she wore a VB LBD to Eugene Remm and Mark Birnbaum’s Joint Birthday.

Is Victoria’s little secret that Selita is her brand ambassador?

I couldn’t think of a better candidate.

I did a double double take whilst viewing the red carpet pics for the “2010 Cosmetic Executive Women Beauty Awards” which was held in New York on Friday night.

Kim Kardashian and Selita Ebanks both attended wearing looks we’ve seen before on the red carpet.

Kim carried a scary looking Christian Louboutin Talita spiked clutch whilst wearing a coral Rachel Roy Resort 2010 dress we’ve seen worn by Tyra Banks.

The model and TV presenter wore it when she attended the “36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards” back in August last year.

Selita wore the same Victoria Beckham Spring 2010 dress which the designer herself wore back in September last year, when she attended the Fashion East show during London Fashion Week.

Tyra and Victoria both look better.

Kim clearly ripped off this look right down to the choice of heels, whereas Selita lets herself down with the cheap looking clutch.

Red Carpet

Heidi Klum shows off her post-pregnancy figure wearing a black Roberto Cavalli tiered chiffon dress with asymmetrical strap with a paillette trim.

She completes her fabulous look wearing satin Christian Louboutin Maggie heels.

Fabulous.

What I love most about Fergie’s look is her silver embellished Christian Louboutin pigalles.

They are truly lust worthy as they sparkle as brightly as her necklace and bracelet.

The singer looked sexy wearing a red hot lace Dolce & Gabbana mini dress.

I’m still not understanding her hair colouring.

Carine Roitfeld wore her Dolce & Gabbana lace dress/cape/Christian Louboutin thigh high boots combination for the 2nd time in 2 weeks.

We didn’t like it the first time Carine.

Keri Hilson is normally immaculate on the red carpet.

On this rare occasion she looks hideous as her dress look very cheap.  She also looks one step away from a wardrobe malfunction.

For such a fun loving event Michelle Trachtenberg’s navy strapless dress feels a bit too conservative.

After Party

At the after party the models came out to play.

Alessandra Ambrosio looked adorable in her sassy Valentino Fall 2009 Couture bustier dress.

Chanel Iman flashed us her megawatt trademark smile whilst wearing the same Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 dress we’ve seen on Anne Hathaway.

Marisa Miller was of course in Herve Leger, and Selita Ebanks donned a tight metallic dress with Givenchy heels.

Fergie performed at this event, but she wasn’t too tired to enjoy the party.

The singer wore a beautiful Blumarine Fall 2009 multi-colour animal print mini dress, which she toughen up with Balmain Uma zipper ankle boots.

I love this look, even with those ankle boots.

Miranda Kerr makes me not hate leopard print.

The VS Angel shunned the expected mini dress, and opted for a sexy lingerie inspired Christian Dior Spring 2008 leopard print dress.

Sharon Stone will be so jealous.

Model Candice Swanepoel wore a very risqué dress from Cushnie et Ochs’ Spring 2010 collection.

I love the asymmetrical hem line and the nude heels she paired with her dress.

Oh Heidi, do you have to keep taunting us?

The fact that you can wear a PVC dress this skin-tight after giving birth 5 weeks ago is leaving us green with envy.

Gorgeous dress.

I’m guessing it won’t be long before we see Victoria Beckham in those white Trib Two’s as she has them in every other colour.

Eva Mendes looked radiant when she stepped out for the closing night of the “Middle East International Film”  in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates wearing a white asymmetrical J.Mendel Pre-Fall 2009 gown.

She teamed her dress with diamond hot pink jewellery from Cartier.

Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks wore the same gown to “A Magical Evening” Gala in New York earlier on this month.

This column dress complements both women’s dark features and skin and I always adore white on the red carpet when done well like it has been here.

Although Eva has the impressive Cartier jewels, Selita is completely glowing in J.Mendel and I prefer how her hair is neatly tucked away to show the shoulder detail.

This draws the eye down to the gathering at the edge of the waist which then creates a beautiful fall of material down to the floor. Ten gold stars to Selita as she is the winner here for me.

We were so blindly obsessed with predicting Lady GaGa and others would be the first to wear the Alexander McQueen Spring 2010 armadillo heels, that we didn’t consider the MOST like person to take them from the runway to reality – Daphne Guinness.

How could we have not even considered her?

The heiress donned the impossible-to-walk-in heels when she hosted this event with Marc Jacobs last night.

Her crazy heels were paired with an aqua marine bubble skirt dress from Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 collection.

I love that gold bejeweled neckline, but hate that silver metal belt she paired with it.   These kind of belts are very much her signature, and they are usually Alaia.

Apart from the belt, my only disappointment is that she didn’t go for one of the embellished armadillo heels.

This may seem strange but every time I look at Daphne, I think this is what Victoria Beckham will look like in about 20 years time.

Many of you have expressed how much you are O.V.E.R Balmain, or that you didn’t get the craze to begin with.

Doesn’t Selita Ebanks make you want to forgive and forget?

As always the Victoria’s Secret model does just to Balmain.

She looks outstanding in this dress, her skin is glowing and the colour is divine on her.

As much as I love this dress, I think her J.Mendel white gown from earlier in the week was a far superior look to be included in the BDOTW poll.

Cassie looks peeved.  Maybe she’s still waiting for her ridiculous hairstyle to grow out.

The singer wore a  long sleeved LBD with cut-outs on the side, paired with a black pair of Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte Fall 2009 thigh-high boots.

Amber Valletta was the most glamorous at this event, giving off an elegant vibe wearing a dark jade RM by Roland Mouret Lombarde gown paired with Nicholas Kirkwood python cut-out platform heels.
