Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

Although I did not agree that Anne Hathaway was the Best Dressed star on the red carpet last week, I do agree that her style choices get better, less safe and less predictable.

The stunning actress wore this magnificent navy Marc Jacobs Spring 2009 short sleeved metallic red striped suit. She wore the dress with a metallic sash tied at the waist, and two-tone platform shoes.

She did not wear this suit as it appeared on the runway, so she completely made it her own.

Kerry Washington obviously had no time to go sight-seeing in Paris, were she attended the Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 collection, because within 48 hours she was already back in New York to attend this event.

The actress wore a blush pink and nude Calvin Klein Resort 2009 ribbed bandeau dress, with two-tone platform heels.

For me she was one of the best dressed at this event. STUNNING.

Nicole Kidman wore a forest green Prada Resort 2009 dress.

The satin dress was embellished with green jewels on the breast-bone and waist.

She completed her look bizarrely with pink heels, but it is better than safe black.

I absolutely adore Jenny McCarthy wearing this Gucci Fall 2008 dress.

The black drop waist dress with a velvet skirt and gold embellishments, is very much on the folkloric trend, with fringed shoulders and sash on the waist.

Jenny gets better and better on the red carpet.

Eva Mendes gives us her trademark pout wearing a sequined tunic dress with striped panels.

Jennifer Lopez kinda hits a bum note for me in this Dolce & Gabbana dress. Her sheer dress is so transparent that it reveals her bodysuit/spanx underneath.

Even her hair is a little off.

Kate Beckinsale is one of those actresses you don’t hear much about, but she always makes an great impact on the red carpet.

She does so here by wearing a stunning one-shoulder Derek Lam gown, which she make all the more elegant with her updo, Jimmy Choo clutch and gold earrings.

Model and current Calvin Klein poster boy, Gabriel Aubry escorted to gorgeous baby mama, Halle Berry to this event.

He look gorgeous, but then he always does. She looks gorgeous, but I am not at all crazy about her Roberto Cavalli ensemble.

It is not as classic, nor chic, as I have come to expect from Halle. To me this is something Kim Kardashian would wear.

Sorry Halle.

Only Angie Harmon can make a grey Dolce & Gabbana dress look this beautiful.

Katharine McPhee is gorgeous in a green Karen Zambos Baretta silk dress.

Isla Fisher shows off her post baby figure in this black cocktail dress.

Could Jane Fonda be more lovely?

Courteney Cox jazzed up her satin cobalt blue Alessandro Dell’Acqua dress, with an array of statement necklaces.

I adore the colour on her.

Nicollette Sheridan is really making an effort lately, and I think she look amazing in this LBD.

The former fiancée of Michael Bolton, has improved since the split, so I may just cautiously downgrade her on my Fashion Failures list.

Sigourney Weaver often struggles on the red carpet. She took a night of wearing her favoured designer, Prada to wear this green Bottega Veneta Fall 2008 dress, with an asymtetric draped neckline.

Simply stunning, Sheryl Crow.
