Red Carpet Fashion Awards

After sparkling in a pair of Balmain heels in her ‘She Wolf’ video I was not particularly surprised when I saw Sharkira arrive at the MTV Music Awards tonight wearing a sparkling Balmain strapless studded leather dress.

SHOCKINGLY Pink arrived on a fire truck wearing the SAME DRESS.

Can you believe it?

Someone is getting fired tomorrow.

The two ladies saw the funny side luckily, as they posed together on the red carpet.

Shakira wore her dress with thigh-high boots, whilst Pink wore black patent heels.

Shakira wins this for me.

Olga – a regular reader – contacted me recently and asked if I had seen Shakira’s new video “She Wolf”.

Olga was informing me that she noticed that Sharika was wearing those sparkling Balmain Spring 2009 heels in her new video.

At that point I hadn’t seen the video, but a few days later whilst at the gym pounding the treadmill I almost fell off when “She Wolf” came on screen.

Sharika is ELECTRIC.

She’s like a magnet that draws you in and leaves you mesmerized by her beauty, so I was happy to see Vanity Fair have captured that beauty in a Couture shoot photographed by Michael Roberts for their October 2009 issue.

In the picture above she lounges in a gold chair whilst having her nails done wearing a gold Jean Paul Gaultier dress. Her ring is from Cartier.

The rest of her shoot includes her wearing Valentino, Armani Privé, Chanel – thankfully one of the few pieces I liked from that collection – Givenchy and Christian Dior.

The Dior and both the Valentino pictures are my absolute favourites.

I never imagined I would see this blue velvet Alexander McQueen Fall 2008 coat, with gold embroidery on the red carpet, but of course it would be Trudie Styler who’d make it happen.

Trudie is not afraid of taking risks. They don’t alway pay off, but I really do like what she has done here.

She looks regal, like a queen without her tiara, but she would have to lose those gold hooped earrings.

When I first saw Kerry Washington in this gold Jasmine di Milo Fall 2007 dress, with the sheer yoke I hated it. But to be honest it has grown on me. There is something quite futuristic and McQueen-esqe about it.

Kerry was safely consistent last year, so it’s nice to see her wear something with a bit of an edge.

The Jasmine di Milo Fall 2007 collection seems like it’s having a bit of a revival. First Rihanna, now Kerry.

She completes her look with a black Mary Norton clutch, with gold detailing.

Demi Moore arrived with her hubby, wearing a stunning silver and black sequined dress, which she wore with the heavenly Christian Louboutin Eugenie satin pumps.

Jessica Alba wore black pants and a black tank, but she brighten up her look with a gold blazer, gold peep-toes, and a gold Jimmy Choo Kase oval clutch.

Marisa Tomei wore a black dress with bronze bubble hem. She completed the look with black tights, pumps and her Fendi Borderline satin clutch.

Shakira wore a strapless royal blue Carolina Herrera gown with black detailing on the side.

Kate Walsh arrived wearing a strapless Missoni floral printed dress, with brown sequined bodice.

Jennifer Lopez was very much on-trend wearing her electric blue Marchesa strapless gown, which had a matching blue jewel detail on the empire-waist.

I much prefer this dress to her gold Golden Globes dress. This is what she should have worn, much more classy.

I adore this green Oscar de la Renta gown on Shakira. The large bow on some would have been overbearing, but I think she carries it well.

The only thing I will say is that I prefer a wavy haired Shakira.

Paulina Rubio follows the Golden Globes nude trend, with this nude strapless gown.

This deep purple halter gown is not the most flattering for Rosario Dawson.

She bizarrely wears her dress with purple suede pumps, and her make-up is too pale. Not a great look for Rosario.

Rosie Perez squashes her lady lumps in this black Dolce and Gabbana dress with a silver embellished detail.
