Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Best Dressed Award
This is the impact I wanted Cameron Diaz to make, but instead that honour goes to Sienna Miller.

I love the sea green colour of her Swarovski-encrusted Twenty8Twelve Fall 2009 dress.

The length is perfect to show off her pins, and the shoulder pads are subtle enough not to draw any Balmain comparisons.

The Brit actress carried a silvery Chanel clutch, and wore pair gorgeous Nicholas Kirkwood gold heels, to complete this stunning look.

I Don’t Follow Red Carpet Rules Award
If we expected Kristen Stewart to wear a cute pink mini dress, with silver strappy sandals, we were wrong.

She hit the red carpet wearing a Yigal Azrouël Fall 2009 red and black dress, with a cross cross detail on the sheer yoke, and a wide black belt.

I can imagine her being wrestled into this dress, and her stylist compromising on the Converse sneakers, but she totally rocks this look.

Best Black Award
Leighton Meester took a risk at the Costume Institute Gala, which didn’t pay off for me, but this edgy cut-out Emilio De La Morena Spring 2009 dress totally works.

This interesting dress has peek-a-boo parts, sheer panels, folds, and cut-outs, which Blair Waldorf wouldn’t approve of, but totally love.

She completes her look with Brian Atwood Brie purple suede ankle boots.

Risk That Paid Off Award
Taraji P. Henson certain got into the spirit of this fun awards ceremony, wearing a black and white strapless printed Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 bustier dress.

The part French maid, part Chinese porcelain inspired look is definitely daring, and with her fun-loving personality she totally pulls it off.

I love how she plays up the ruffled detail on the back of her skirt, and her punky spiky new ‘do.

Moving Out Of Her Comfort Zone Award
This Moschino Fall 2009 red and navy floral print sleeveless dress with a ruffled hem, seems a little out of Lauren Conrad’s comfort-zone, which I really appreciate.

It feels a bit dark and mysterious, which is complemented with dark red lips, and black strappy booties.

I only wish she had pulled her hair back, to show off the floral shoulder detail.

Best Use Of Colour Award
I love to see bold bright colours on the red carpet, which is why I love Vanessa Hudgens peach satin Max Azria dress.

The dress is very grown up, but she injects her youthful glow and enthusiasm, to make this a perfect red carpet look, which she pairs with Jimmy Choo shoes, and a Nancy Gonzalez bronze clutch.

I really glad she didn’t go full on boho, with a printed maxi dress, which we’ve seen many times from her.

Hate The Hair, Love The Dress Award
I love Megan Fox’s black and gold Dolce & Gabbana strapless brocade cocktail dress, which she had shorten. It really suits her dark, mysterious persona, plus it shows off her toned figure.

She wisely kept accessories to a minimum, and added a bit of spice via her Christian Louboutin Differa sandals.

The biggest downsides are her hair, overly orange glow.

Best Theme Award
At first I hated Ashley Greene’s hair, but then I realised how much it worked with what appears to be a 40s housewife theme.

The hair works with her alluringly form-fitting Dolce & Gabbana floral print dress, with a beautiful, yet subtle voluminous skirt.

A neon yellow clutch, and bold red lips, add a touch of bright colour.

The Kate Beckinsale “This Is Not The Oscars” Award
I was really surprised to see LeAnn Rimes wearing such a formal gown by J.Mendel to the MTV Movie Awards.

She looks beautiful, she really does, but she’s a little overdressed.

Most Vanilla Award
Miley Cyrus opted for a very soft look for this event. I would’ve expected something with a lot more attitude, but she looks lovely in her pale pink cowl neck Moschino Cheap & Chic dress, which had a ruffled detail, going down her back.

The only hint of the wild rock wannabee Miley, was via her rings and bracelets.

Best Re-Run Award
I love Ashley Tisdale’s purple leather Elise Øverland dress, and the accessories she picked really punch up the look, especially those lust worthy Paul & Joe Sister heels.

We’ve seen this look before on the red carpet, but as Ashley wears it so well, that all is forgiven.

Surprisingly Not Predictable Award
I would have expected 3 things from Audrina Patridge.

1. Something low cut
2. Her black Alexander McQueen Bow Clutch
3. Her Balmain studded heels.

She blows that out of the water wearing a loose fitting paillette covered Joey Tierny Couture dress, with a dove grey Alexander McQueen clutch, and cream Louboutin heels.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Shoes Award
Keke Palmer’s look was almost perfect. I really loved her coral embellished Elise Øverland dress. It’s young, it’s fun, it sparkles, and it summery, but those grey booties lose her many points.

Stand Out Award
Malin Akerman stood out the most, because she is the only one who opted for pants, wearing a crisp, white Dolce & Gabbana suit, with a pale blue corset.

Her hair was sleeked back to complete this sophisticated look, which she didn’t over accessorize.

Most Summery Award
Yes Paris Hilton needs a new clutch and shoe combo, but there’s no denying her vibrant vest for spring and summery colours.

I love her cute coral Jenny Packham Spring 2009 strapless mini, with its ruffled skirt, and gold embroidered bodice.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun/Au Natural Award
Monique Coleman must have sensed when she looked in the mirror, that she would get ridiculed for her hair.  I admire her for ditching the extensions, and going au natural. I can’t see many others sporting this look.

Her Christian Louboutin Spartenvol Strass sandals complemented her silver and black spacey mini tutu dress, which you may all hate, but I will take this over a mini dress with tights any day.

She wanted to have fun at this event, and it shows.

When I saw this event, I hoped we’d get to seem more of the Herve Leger By Max Azria Fall 2009 collection, which was first worn by Miley Cyrus.

Unfortunately, we got nothing original.

Hilary Duff paired her lime green bandage dress with Sergio Rossi python cut-out sandals.

She looks good, but not so crazy about her hair.

Sophia Bush, a long time friend of designer Max Azria, opted for a daring silver plunging dress, with grey suede Trib Two’s.

Leona Lewis wears tights with just about everything, so I wasn’t surprised she paired her Herve Leger Melanie bandage dress which has a beaded shoulder strap, with my least favourite clothing item.

She looks beautifully voluptuous in her dress, which was worn with Trib Two’s.

Double blow.

Melissa George opted for a haltered Herve Leger black dress.

Taraji P. Henson may have just gone and undone all her hard work during awards season. I mean what the…

So wrong on many levels.

Jordana Brewster wore a grey Herver Leger Zebra dress, with a gold trimmed clutch and nude heels.

Krysten Ritter totally opted out of wearing a Herve Leger dress. Instead she wore a red one-shouldered dress, which had a ruffled detail going down one-side, with matching heels.

Woot woot. Taraji P. Henson makes a long awaited return to the red carpet, and she proves by wearing this vintage Emanuel Ungaro fringed flapper style dress, with Azzedine Alaia boots, that her awards season run was not fluke.

After wearing a gorgeous 3.1 Phillip Lim dress the other night, this white Camilla and Marc dress for some reason reminds me of loo roll.

Not a flattering look, and so disappointing as I was considering putting her on a pedestal.

LOVE Kelly Osbourne in this black and white striped dress. The volume on the skirt of her bandage dress is blowing me away.

Her look is complete with Gina heels, and a Swarovski clutch.

Garcelle Beauvais was wearing a gorgeous strapless jersey LWD from the BCBG Max Azria asymmetric dress collection, but I’m captivated by that stunning statement necklace.

Jordana Brewster is wearing a really nice draped Christian Dior dress, but there’s TOO much black going on for a party titled ‘Hot Hollywood Style‘.

The same kinda applies to Fergie, although her look has a very interesting and distinctive edge to it, with the leather vest, over a fringed DSquared dress.

My main criticism is the hair.

Fergie, please decide what colour you wish your hair to be. At present I see black, I see brown, and a touch of honey colour highlights. I admired the changed at first, but now it’s looking like a home colour kit gone wrong.

Estelle, we’re used to seeing you in edgy design no one else would dare wear, but you’re just not the maxi dress wearing kind.

Her dress Layla, is wore with a Juliette Jake clutch.

Like Halle Berry’s striped maxi earlier this week, Shanna Moakler’s white

Foley+Corinna maxi dress, with multi-coloured stripes screams summer vacation.

I do though admire her creativity, in trying to match her eye make-up, to the colours on her dress. It looks like she gave up after trying 3 shades, thankfully.

Eliza Dushku opted for black and white stripes in this Moschino dress.

The party’s hot, she so Hollywood, so it was only natural Paris Hilton arrived at this event.

She snugged up to her beau wearing a Junko Shimada two-tone mini dress, with a Chanel purse, and Trib Two’s. Her jewels are outstanding.

Martina McBride wears a black strapless Miu Miu LBD, with her wonderfully voluminous dark locks and a Yigal Azrouel statement necklace.

Meagan Good wore a barely there LBD, under a black leather jacket. Her yellow strappy sandals was the only dash of colour she added to her look.

With regards to what Annie Wersching is wearing, some might say this is more negligee than red carpet ready, I would just be thankful it’s not black.

Taraji P. Henson was the first to wear this Black Halo ruffle sleeved dress when she attended the Eagle Eye premiere last September.

The Oscar nominated actress accessorized with a gold bracelet, a black clutch and nude pumps.

Debra Messing wore a blue version of this Black Halo dress, when she attended the Avakian Beverly Hills Boutique Celebration in December.

She completed her look with a gold necklace, a gold box clutch, and a pair of multi-coloured Brian Atwood Marielle satin pumps.

Lisa Rinna followed Debra a few days later, wearing the same dress to the release party of her DVD, Dance Body Beautiful.

She wore her dress with a matching blue bracelet, and gold slingback peep-toes.

Britney Spears wore the same dress in black, when she attended her brothers wedding on New Year’s Eve with black pumps.

On Wednesday Aubrey O’Day was spotted in Atlantic City wearing the same dress in blue, whilst posing for the paparazzi inside The Pool nightclub at Harrah’s.

Taraji’s nude pumps help her win this for me.


This Black Halo keyhole ruffle sleeve sheath dress can be purchase in many colours.

Black from Saks.com ($345), purple from Tobi.com ($345) and Grey from Revolve Clothing (£238.41/$345.00).
