Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Jennifer Hudson pick up her outstanding new artist Award wearing a black Peter Sorenon dress, which had a feathered detail on the hip.

She completed her look with Givenchy lace ankle sandals.

Beyonce perform her song Halo wearing a gorgeous white gown, with a black band, and delicate embellishments on the bodice, which also cascaded down her skirt.

Jada Pinkett Smith wore a maroon strapless Monique Lhuillier gown, with a a vintage Judith Lieber belt.

I must say I am a bit disappointed the bigger stars did not take to the red carpet.

Taraji P. Henson added her increasing star quality to the red carpet wearing a gorgeous lemon halter neck mermaid Zac Posen gown.

I love the ruffled detail down the middle, and the layering of the hem.

A very chic Rosario Dawson walked the red carpet wearing a black silk taffeta Rafael Cennamo full-skirted dress.

Sanaa Lathan looked ravishing in this daring plunge neck jersey Donna Karan gown with black straps.

I am not a fan of Dakota Fanning’s nude strapless down. It feels too naked.

Alfre Woodard wore a Tadashi fuschia iridescent crinkled silk chiffon fly away cocktail dress. Her look was accessorized with a Mary Norton gold clutch.

Chandra Wilson impressed me on this red carpet.

Usually I find a fault, but the hair, the make-up, the jewels, the Daniel Swarovski clutch and her orange Pamella Roland Spring 2008 gown are all faultless.

Can you believe that this is Rudy Huxtable aka Keshia Knight Pulliam?

She stands out on the red carpet wearing an electric blue gown.

After Taraji, Vanessa Williams wore my second favourite gown on this red carpet. I love the colour, and jeweled detail on this one-shouldered gown.

Like Chandra, Tichina Arnold looks flawless. This baby blue gown really stands out and makes her glow.

Holly Robinson Peete wore a coral and silver Naeem Khan Spring 2008 patterned cocktail dress, with pewter strappy heels.

Along with the usual suspects, I am very much looking forward to seeing what actress Taraji P. Henson wears to the Oscars.

Her style continues to shine, and this was evident in the vintage Thierry Mugler orange one shoulder dress from Decades Inc.

The actress wore this to the 40th NAACP Image Awards Pre-Show Gala on Wednesday night.

The dress fits her body like a glove, and I love the distinctive hardware of a silver star, placed on the shoulder.

With curly hair and silver strappy sandals, the look was complete.

I am really hoping Anne Hathaway is saving her best dress for the Oscars, because this ivory Chloe crystal embroidered dress is slightly ill fitting, plus I think the colour washes her out.

She wore her dress with Christian Louboutin Very Galaxy heels.

Taraji P. Henson is wearing my favourite colour.

Some of you might think her look is too matchy matchy, but I love the colour against her skin.

What I don’t like is her choice of clutch. Apart from the colour, it feels too big and cheap for her chic Alberta Ferretti ensemble.

Amy Adams wore a haltered turquoise RM by Roland Mouret dress with gold sandals.

Although I like the colour, I am not too sure about the draping on the front of her dress.

It’s nice to see her hair down again.

Kate Winslet was the only nominee who opted for black.

She looked flawless, as we have come to expect, wearing head to toe Helmut Lang.

Penelope Cruz had only arrived in LA, 2 hours before this luncheon, after flying from the Goya Awards in Madrid.

After a 10 hour flight I am sure dressing up was the last thing on her mind, but the Oscar nominated actress make a good effort in this ivory YSL suit.

Love the big blown out hair.

Marisa Tomei wore a very chic Christian Dior ivory belted dress, with champagne coloured Jimmy Choo shoes.

She carried a clutch which matched her dress.

Viola Davis loves bright colours. This was evident in her vibrant yellow SAG Awards gown, and again here, with her red David Meister sheath dress.

She completed her look with Givenchy heels.

What a knock out.

Freida Pinto looks nothing short of breath-taking, wearing this metallic one-shouldered Zac Posen Spring 2009 mini dress, to the Directors Guild of America Awards over the weekend.

She wore her dress with matching peep-toes, and her hair and make-up were totally flawless.

The former aspiring model has only had one bad day on the red carpet, which she’s more than made up for ever since.

Amy Adams arrived wearing a shimmering Jasmine Di Milo Spring 2007 dress, with silver and nude sequin details.

What I love is how the dress is cut low at the back, as Amy tries to shake her “safe on the red carpet” image.

Amy never lets me down, safe or not, so this is another fantastic look for me.

Silver Christian Louboutin Fortuna slingbacks complete the look.

Marisa Tomei has an amazing figure, and this white strapless Dior gown shows it off by giving her a very sexy silhouette.

She completes her look with a stunning silver necklace with heart-shape details, and a purple clutch.

Taraji P. Henson strapless Kaufman Franco dress really gives her a lift.

For some reason the necklace really bothers me. The bodice has such an interesting detail on it, but the necklace distracts me.

Taraji gets better and better this awards season.

Michelle Monaghan had a baby girl 3 months ago, and is already back on the red carpet looking stunning.

She shows us her post-baby figure for the first time, wearing a white strapless Giambattista Valli Spring 2009 dress, covered in black paillettes.

Rachel Griffiths is glowing in a champagne coloured Lanvin Fall 2008 dress.

Her jewels are by Neil Lane, and her silver clutch is by Alexandra Knight.

This is a nice enough Temperley London dress for Claire Danes, with the embellished shoulders, but something is missing.

A matching embellished belt perhaps?

Now this is one Herve Leger dress you guys just have to love.

Viola Davis’ dress has a chiffon skirt, to give it such chic elegant touch.

I am glad she opted for a gold clutch, which really grabs your attention.

I love Virginia Madsen. She is always so bold on the red carpet. Never hiding behind black, never covering up.

She has it, and she’s flaunting it.

You go girl.

I am loving the sparkling details on Lisa Edelstein LBD, which is very sexy.

Terri Seymour, the ex-girlfriend of Simon Cowell, used to always be well groomed on the red carpet.

The black turtleneck dress looks fab on her, because lets face it she has the body to carry it, but the crimped hair is such a big no-no.

I don’t think crimped hair has been cool since the 80s.

January Jones was by far the best dressed at this event. I love this girl, she is fearless on the red carpet, and never plays it safe.

The actress wore a strapless pink beaded Elie Saab Fall 2008 Couture dress, which was not only a great fit, but was also a fantastic colour for her.

She matched her make-up to her dress, and her silver Jimmy Choo peep-toes to her jewelry, in what has to be one of her best looks.

Definitely up for Best Dressed this week.

The gorgeous Freida Pinto looked superb wearing a nude draped Donna Karan Resort 2009 gown, with a gold sparkling Leiber clutch.

Her make-up was flawless.

Taraji P. Henson is very much one to take notice of, as she has been making a lot of great choices on the red carpet lately.

For this event she wore a gorgeous black and white print Angel Sanchez Spring 2009 dress which had a large black sash folded across the front of her dress.

She wore black pumps with it and a red satin clutch to complete her look.

The forever elegant Laura Linney wore a black one-shouldered Michael Kors belted dress.

She completed the look with black strappy sandals, and gold accessories.

I was not at all enamored by Natalie Portman’s look.

She wore a semi-transparent blue dress with a pink sash tied to the waist, with black heels and a bronze clutch.

I remember a time when Catherine Zeta-Jones used to wow me every time she stepped onto the red carpet. Now she just kinda blends in with everyone else.

The Welsh actress joined her hubby Michael Douglas on the red carpet wearing a Monique Lhuillier one-shouldered draped dress, and gold t-bar Sergio Rossi heels.

Debra Messing this time kept things simple wearing a black longs sleeved dress which had a bow detail on the front and embellished cuffs.

She continued the simple look with black patent pumps.
