Red Carpet Fashion Awards

It has been a very long while since we saw Luca Luca on the red carpet, which is surprising because he makes such great pieces.

Emmanuelle Chriqui wore a white gown from the Resort 2009 collection, which was off-the-shoulder, but also had a silver halter strap.

Melissa George opted for an ethereal Emanuel Ungaro Resort 2009 off-the-shoulder gown.

Kristin Davis was wearing an adorable red Donna Karan dress.

I love Kristin, but we seem to see this full-skirted look on her a lot.

She completed her look with Christian Louboutin peep-toes, and a Swarovski clutch.

Tichina Arnold has been making a lot of right choices lately. I adore this pink sleeveless gown.

This is a very chic, and sophisticate choice for the actress.

Taraji P. Henson wore this smoky blue one-shouldered Michael Kors gown, with fan shaped Mary Norton clutch.

Hair and make-up are flawless as usual.

Jennie Garth went for a retro vibe wearing a gold shimmering Tadashi plunging gown.

Best Dressed Award
I was not particular wowed by many on the red carpet tonight, but Freida Pinto definitely stood out in her blue John Galliano Spring 2009 gown.

I loved the one shoulder long sleeve gown with the all lace, beading, embroidery and tulle. It was so pretty.

The gown was perfect for her, as it feels Indian inspired.

She completed her look with a Judith Leiber clutch.

Best Couture Award
OK Sarah Jessica Parker’s Christian Dior Haute Couture gown, did make her look like a fairy princess, but it’s that what we all want to see on the red carpet? Fantasy and Fairy tales?

I love the boost this gown gave her, and I love the embroidered bodice.

The only downside for me was the hair. One of her classic high buns would have looked so great with this dress.

Her jewels were Fred Leighton and her clutch is Ferragamo.

I love how cute her and Matthew Broderick looked so happy on the red carpet.

Back To Her Best Award
Of everyone on the red carpet tonight, I was most worried about Anne Hathaway. Her red carpet style has been underwhelming lately, so I prepared myself for the worst.

I was releived when Anne walked the red carpet wearing this gorgeous ivory Armani Privé Spring 2009 gown that was covered in clear paillettes. The gown moved so perfectly when she walked the red carpet.

Even thought I love the gown, I did prefer it on the runway, without the silver embellished band on the top of the bodice.

Her stunning jewels are by Cartier.

Best Use Of Colour Award
Whilst a lot of actress opted for neutral colours, Natalie Portman opted for this stunning pink Rodarte chiffon strapless gown.

I wasn’t crazy about the make-up, but the gown overall ruled.

Just OK Award
Taraji P. Henson has had a great Awards season, and although I do like this ivory Roberto Cavalli gown on her, I expected a bit more from her.

The Fred Leighton necklace is outstanding, and the Mary Norton red bag, adds some colour, but I feel like this is just OK.

On The Fence Award
Marion Cotillard was my girl crush of last awards season. Since then she seemed to disappear off the face of the earth, and the few appearances she did make left me underwhelmed.

Her Christian Dior Fall 2008 Couture gown has been modified from the runway, but I feel like I love the gown more than her in the gown.

Hard To Pull It Off, But She Did Award
Marisa Tomei didn’t pick an easy gown.

I went back and forth as to whether I liked this one-shouldered Versace Atelier silvery grey satin organza gown.

The final verdict was yes, as I became mesmerized by the pleated details.

Her jewels were Van Cleef & Arpels.

Most Improved Award
It’s not black, or brown, or by Azzedine Alaia, so Penelope Cruz finally earned her place on the Best Dressed list.

She wore a vintage Pierre Balmain Haute Couture gown. I loved the print on the gown, which looked like lace.

Her jewels are Chopard.

Best Custom Gown
Queen Latifah attended Georges Chakra’s Spring 2009 couture show in Paris recently to work with the designer.

The result was this amazing navy dutchess satin gown with tulle train, and Swarovski crystal embroidery around the neckline and on the hip.

Fit for a Queen.

I Know You Hate It, But I Love It Award
Tilda Swinton is like Marmite. You either love her or hate her.

I personally love her edgy style, despite her disappointing me at the Berlin Film Festival.

After her win last year, the British actress was a presenter last night. I loved her Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 sand-colored matte silk satin draped blouse, which she wore with an elegant black duchesse satin long evening skirt with gathered detailing.

Golden Girl Award
Viola Davis has been wearing a lot of David Meister lately, so I was surprise when she switched to Reem Acra for her gown last night.

Surprised, but not disappointed because she looked radiant. I’m always mesmerized by her skin, because she glows.

Lady In Red Award
There were 4 red gowns on the red carpet last night, but Virginia Madsen’s Kevan Hall strapless gown was the one I really liked.

I love that origami fold on the front, and her silky silhouette.

Her shoes were Rene Caovilla, her jewels by Loree Rodkin and her clutch was by Katherine Baumann.

Most Classic Award
Meryl Steep was stunning wearing an off-the-shoulder Alberta Ferretti gown.

She is glowing.

Her clutch is by Ferragamo.

Best Couple Award
I know I am always macking on Diane Lane and Josh Brolin, but I adore them together.

She also wore a Dolce & Gabbana strapless mermaid gown, but the style was very different from Melissa George’s well worn gown.

Beyonce Will Be Jealous Award
If Beyonce had not been force to wear that House of Dereon Couture gown her mother created, this is the gown she would have wanted to wear, as it’s dripping with bling.

Instead Leslie Mann picked this stunning platinum Pamella Roland Fall 2009 gown, which was one of my favourite gowns presented at New York Fashion Week last week.

I was going to take a day off today, but there were so many events last night, I have to keep up.

Anne Hathaway arrived wearing a Helmut Lang Spring 2009 pleated tapered smoking wool pants, with a black smoking wool tuxedo jacket.

I do like the suit, but I wish she had broken up the black a bit, even if it was just the heels.

Taraji P. Henson looked sensational wearing a David Meister black satin strapless cocktail dress with an interesting detail on the bodice.

Her look was completed with statement necklace, gorgeous strappy sandals and a pewter oval Mary Norton clutch.

Elizabeth Banks wore a navy blue asymmetrical dress with nude strappy sandals.

Viola Davis wore silver strappy sandals with a violet 3/4 sleeved dress, which had a black leather sash at the waist.
