Shakira In Azzedine Alaia – 2011 NRJ Music Awards

Shakira attended the 2011 NRJ Music Awards in Cannes, France this weekend.

I’ve never been a fan of Shakira’s style as everything about her seems dated, but she did look good wearing an Azzedine Alaia Fall 2010 dress.

Her black beaded sleeveless dress with a flounce hem could’ve been lifted has she opted for more exciting accessories.

Wore Wore Gucci Better? Evan Rachel Wood, Pixie Lott or Shakira

Evan Rachel Wood first wore this Gucci dress back in June to Hollywood Life’s 11th Annual Young Hollywood Awards and I love what she’s done with it.

Bare legs, check. Red nails, check. Cinched in waist, check. Great accessories check. My only complaint would to be to say she could have picked a more exciting shoe.

When Pixie wore this dress to the Q Awards in October I wished she’d left her tights at home.

I’m also not completely sure what’s going on with the flowers in her hair?! However, this dress does really suit her rock chick vibe. I just wish she’s styled it better.

Shakira was last to wear this Gucci number in November to the Bambi Awards and it’s left me in two minds.

I think she wore it well, teaming it with simple accessories and knee high boots but I just don’t understand those tights! Am I missing the point or do they scream ‘ice skater’ to anyone else?!

For me, Evan Rachel Wood wins this style battle. She’s worn this sequined number with the boldness it deserves.

Who Wore Herve Leger Better? Jennifer Lopez or Shakira

Despite the £6,800 price tag, this Herve Leger metal pailette embellished bandage dress sold out not long after it was uploaded onto Net-A-Porter.

And it’s no wonder considering two of music hottest divas have been seen wearing it.

Jennifer Lopez was in Club LIV in Miami to showcase the video for her new single back in October wearing this Herve Leger dress.

Jennifer looked stunning as always, wearing her mirrored mini dress with black Christian Louboutin Differa sandals.

Singer Shakira wore the same dress on stage and in the press room at the 2009 American Music Awards.

I didn’t like the way she styled her hair, plus I prefer Jennifer’s Differa sandals, so JLo wins for me.

2009 Bambi Awards

Looking at other website you’d be forgiven if you believed that only Shakira and Kate Winslet walked the red carpet at the Bambi Awards last night

Thomas Kretschmann and Shermine Sharivar were a very glamorous couple.

He wore a black suit with his shirt unbuttoned, whilst Shermine glowed beside him wearing an Armani Prive Fall 2009 deep plunging gown with an asymmetrical peplum on the waist.

The bodice stands out for more than the plunge, as it was embellished with stunning crystals.

I’m not sure about the nude clutch, but her hair and make-up suit the Old Hollywood look she was going for.

Bettina Zimmermann was another stunner on this red carpet.

Glowing with gorgeousity the actress wore a wore nude off-the-shoulder Versace Fall 2009 gown which is entirely beaded and modified from the runway.

Her look is paired with Versace heels from the same collection, and gold clutch.

I love how this gown shimmers.

Julia Stegner I ask you…why the ankle boots?

The model’s strapless midnight blue Versace Atelier Fall 2008 bustier gown with flower origami detail on the hip is outstandingly beautiful.

But when I see her pair it with ankle boots I just want to roll my eyes and say “next”.

Loving this from the ankles up.

I feel a unofficial brand ambassador post coming on.

Shakira wears Versace for her 4th red carpet appearance in a row, whilst her silver platform Versace Spring 2010 heels only get their 3rd appearance.

The singer wore a chain mail Versace Spring 2010 mini dress with an optical turquoise and charcoal grey print that made her stand out on this red carpet of luscious gowns.

Shakira later collected the ‘Best International Pop Star Award’ wearing a Gucci Fall 2009 mini dress with feathered details on the shoulders we have seen twice before on the red carpet.

She paired her dress with milky tights and black knee-high boots.

Jessica Schwarz opted for a black and white Chanel Fall 2009 ensemble consisting of a white sleeveless ruffed shirt, and a black draped floor-length skirt.

I’m sure she could’ve pulled off those arm-warmers.

Annette Weber wears the same blue ombre Valentino Fall 2009 gown we saw on Evangeline Lilly during Cannes Film Festival.

German model Franziska Knuppe was one of my favourites on this red carpet.

Her blue gown has a princess feel to it, plus I love the floral embroidered details that cascade down her bodice and the blue ribbon tied to her waist.

Kate Winslet won the ‘Best Actress Award’ at this event, but she wins most boring on this red carpet for me.

Her shapeless black dress doens’t excite me like the others do.  The only interesting part is the embellished shoulders and lace detail on the back.

Alexandra Maria Lara looked beautiful wearing a draped nude Alberta Ferretti halter gown.

What I’m missing from this look is a bit of bling, or a stand-out clutch.

Now this is what you call a mermaid hem.

Mareile Hoeppner must have Kate Beckinsale going green with envy.

There are a lot of great candidates for BDOTW, so let me know who’s your favourite.

On Stage, Backstage and In The Press Room @ The AMAs

Jennifer Lopez didn’t walk the red carpet at the AMA’s, but she gave us many costume changes to make up for it.

One of her looks backstage was this white bod-con Gucci Spring 2010 dress with many cut-out details.

She paired her dress with the runway heels which also had cut-outs.

On stage she opted for a gold dress with had exaggerated hips as she performed in Christian Louboutin heels.

At some point the skirt was removed reveal a lace playsuit, as Lopez changed into comfortable sneakers.

In yet another change backstage Jennifer looked her best wearing an embroidered strapless Marchesa dress with a feathery skirt.

It was Lady GaGa and Rihanna who provided the biggest talking point, as they both performed in body suits.

GaGa’s nude body suit was accented with dinosaur bones, whilst RiRi opted for a white bandage style body suit with exaggerated spikey shoulders.

The comeback queens both took to the stage.

Whitney Houston performed wearing a one-sleeved Kaufman Franco white jersey column, whilst Janet Jackson opened the show with a medley of some of the biggest hits wearing a khaki ensemble which again features pointed shoulders.

In the press room Shakira wore the same Herve Leger metal pailette-embellished bandage dress we saw on Jennifer Lopez recently.

Fergie showed us that if the rumours are true about Josh Duhamel he needs his head tested, as she look super hot and sexy wearing a bustier dress with patterned tights and thigh-high boots.

Kate Hudson was one of the presenters on the night.

The actress wore a silver Gianni Versace vintage chain mail cocktail dress, which she paired with nude heels.
