Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Lovely In Lanvin Award
Sigourney Weaver didn’t fade into the red carpet at the 2010 Oscars.

Her cherry red Lanvin Grecian one-shoulder gown was exquisite.

The black satin sash broke up the colour and the embroidered detail was a nice touch as she a necklace would’ve ruined this look.

Her look was paired with Jimmy Choo ‘Akuna’ sandals and Neil Lane jewels.

Penelope Cruz wore a Armani Privé Spring 2005 black gown with a mermaid tail.

I like the lace the detail around the bust a shoulder line but I’m a little bored by Penelope in black again.

I feel that she’s trying to channel her Spanish roots here but it somehow looks a little messy.

Glenn Close sparkled in this black Oscar de la Renta floor length Fall 2009 dress.

I just feel it isn’t special enough for the Globes.

The bust line of the dress and the bare shoulders make her arms look too muscular.

Rose Byrne wore a Lanvin Pre-Fall 2010 dress in a deep purple with a bow detail at the waist.

I’m glad Rose decided to wear the dress in this colour but I apart from that I’m left feeling a little bored.

Kate Hudson walked the red carpet in a Marchesa Bridal Spring 2010 gown with sculptured band bodice and bottom flared skirt.

I just can’t make you my mind about this. Part of me is thinking “what the hell?” and the other part doesn’t mind it so much.

I’ve never really got why stars wear bridal looks on the red carpet but I’m actually quite drawn to the sculpting on the dress.

The shoes are way too heavy though.

Jaime Pressly is shimmering in this Kevan Hall Spring 2010 dress with a split up one side.

I prefer this dress on the model as I feel that it has more of an impact against brunette hair.

I don’t think the champagne coloured clutch compliments this dress at all.

Jenna Fischer wore a dress from Halston’s Spring 2010 collection.

I like it but I don’t love it. I just can’t see how this dress is event appropriate. This is a star’s chance to shine and this dress is never going to deliver that moment.

Do you hear that?

That’s that sound of another ball being knocked out of the fashion ball park by Zoe Saldana.

I’m love her Versace Spring 2010 mini chain dress more than the runway version.

The white feels more modern in comparison, plus her dress fits her better than the model.

I like that she opted for Brian Atwood gold “Maniac” pumps, instead of the Spring 2010 Versace heels which are Shakira’s current obsession.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. What a fantastic year she’s having.

Audrina Patridge was my second favourite on this red carpet.

Her sea green Rue du Mail Spring 2010 ensemble is very sophisticated for The Hills star and I especially love the yellow Prada clutch and Alexander McQueen silver heels she paired with this look.

I must say I’m shocked that Audrina is channeling this brand, but she totally rocks it.

Michelle Rodriguez’ hair is way out of control for my liking, but the fact that she’s wearing a pretty Ina Soltani gown which looks gorgeous against her olive skin is enough for me.

Baby steps.

Sigourney Weaver walked the red carpet wearing a stunning black sequin wrap dress with white strappy sandals.

She used to occasion to promote her Life magazine cover.

So very elegant.

I make that two for two for Leona Lewis.

This is a hopeful sign that her corset days are firmly behind her.

This heavily embellished silver gown is very Beyonce circa 2004, but I like it.

Zoe Saldana has had an amazing year on the red carpet.

She continues to shine so brightly for me.

Earlier this week she wowed us wearing an Andrew GN ensemble and now I’m floored by this stunning RM by Roland Mouret silver gown.

I love the texture of her mermaid gown plus the structured shoulders.

I also love the very subtle necklace she wore with the gown, which actually looks to be part of the gown.

She now potentially has 2 looks in the BDOTW poll.

Michelle Rodriguez normally is very unpredictable on the red carpet, as she’s been known to throw up her skirt over her head on the odd occasion.

Last night she looked graceful wearing black Bodyamr silk floor-length dress worn with a built-in plum croc leather and gold belt.

Sigourney Weaver held her own against her younger co-stars looking delightful wearing an black off-the-shoulder Bottega Veneta gown paired with a black sequined cardigan.

She looks so elegant here.  She’s starting to erasing the memory of the days when she used to dress so badly.

Out & About, New York

Rihanna may have worn her Stéphane Rolland Spring 2009 Couture gown on the red carpet at the 2009 Glamour Women of the Year Awards, but inside she did a quick change into this stunning Jasmine di Milo Spring 2010 gown.

The ombre silk tulle gown is divine with it’s sexy thigh-high split and gathered details on the hips.

Many of you didn’t think she could carry off the previous gown, but think she rocked both.

Royal Rajasthan Gala, London

There was a time when I had nothing nice to say about Sigourney Weaver, but she continues to impress.

From her previous Donna Karan gown, to this stunning ruby Naeem Khan Fall 2009 draped satin one- shoulder gown with jeweled trim bodice which I simply adore.

At present she can currently do no wrong.

“A Magical Evening” Gala, New York

I’m still catching my breathe from looking at the stunning Selita Ebanks on this red carpet.

She looks like an angel wearing a white one-shouldered J.Mendel Pre-Fall 2009 gown, which has had its second outing on the red carpet.

BDOTW contender for sure.

Jane Krakowski chose a one shouldered grey embroidered Christian Cota Fall 2009 dress.

I like the dress, especially the embroidered detail, but I’m not sure it quite works on Jane.

She’s quite broad shouldered so this look isn’t particularly flattering.

Montblanc 9th Annual 24 Hr Plays on Broadway After Party, New York

Emmy Rossum is wearing a lot of black lately, but her black jacquard J. Mendel Fall 2009 sleeveless dress which has been modified from the runway is stunning.

She pairs her dress with t-bar heels, I just wish she also wore the runway belt.

“Exposed: 10 Years In Hollywood Book Launch Party”, LA

This isn’t my favourite look on Jessica Alba by any means.

She doesn’t breathe any life into her Narciso Rodriguez Resort 2010 black and white dress which she pairs with Christian Louboutin Lady Page pumps.

MTV’s “It’s On With Alexa Chung”, New York

Rihanna strikes a pose at the MTV Studios after her interview on Alexa Chung’s show, which you can watch by here

I thought it was quite appropriate that Rihanna was seeing Alexa wearing ankle boots, as Alexa is the Queen of ankle boots.

Rihanna paired her boots with an Alexander McQueen asymmetric-stripe sweater dress which we’ve seen on Cheryl Cole.

You have to admire Rinko Kikuchi, as she always keeps things interesting on the red carpet.

The actress opted for a head-to-toe Sophia Kokosalaki Fall 2009 runway look which is ever so slightly modified.

The gold strappy dress with a black skirt, is gathered and embellished with silver panels.

What I love most about this look are Rinko boots.

She looks like a warrior, on her way to battle.

A much as I love Zoe Saldana and her Giambattista Valli Spring 2010 orange floaty mini dress, it doesn’t feel quite grand enough for a Film Festival opening ceremony.

Her previous look would at the “Avatar” stage greeting would have been preferred.

The shoes are also killing me.*yikes*

Sigourney Weaver has the tendency to drop some stink bombs on the red carpet, but she comes up smelling of roses on this occasion wearing a petrol blue satin off-the-shoulder gown.

Japanese actresses Tae Kimura, Ryoko Hirosue and Miki Nakatani walked the red carpet together, each wearing red dresses in various styles, shades and textures.

Ryoko in the middle opted for a strapless silk chiffon Derek Lam dress with frayed ruffles at the ruched bodice, which she paired with champagne coloured heels.

Tae’s red strappy gown is very elegant in it’s simplicity, and Miki strapless velvet gown is divine.

I always wondered that if this Chloe Fall 2009 halter nude dress was worn on the red carpet, if the wearer would be tempted to belt it.

Japanese actress Rie Miyazawa didn’t, she kept the dress loose and floaty.

I love the ruffled collar on this dress.

It hard to see in this picture but Debra Messing’s ruby red jersey one shoulder draped column gown was encrusted with Swarovski crystals, which sparkled as she walked the red carpet.

She looked amazing as she added Lorraine Schwartz jewels to her outstanding look.

Hayden Panettiere wore a J. Mendel Resort 2010 gown with Fred Leighton. Her gold Judith Leiber clutch stood out, as did her necklace.

Marc Bouwer is known for his bedazzling gowns and this is what Anna Torv picked for her red carpet moment.

Jennifer Morrison wore a simple red Calvin Klein dress with an asymmetrical hem paired with Cartier jewels.

Sigourney Weaver is usually guaranteed for the worst dressed list, but she glows in her stunning one-shoulder David Meister gown.

Blake Lively in Versace makes up the list of ladies who wore red on the night.
