ELLE Magazine’s 15th Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute Red Carpet

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.
