Red Carpet Fashion Awards

I was slightly disappointed by Gareth Pugh’s Spring 2010 collection when I compared it to his amazing Fall 2009 and Spring 2009 collections.

Jessica Stam proves that I was wrong to judge so harshly, as she totally rocks this Pugh creation.

I didn’t know Stam could do edgy. I always have her down as a cutesy girl.

She wore her dress with the same runway open-toe lace up booties.

Excluding the tattoos, I really like Amber Rose wearing this orange Jil Sander sculpted dress which she has of course shortened.

The colour is fab against her caramel skin.

It looks like the sculpted part of this dress doesn’t quite translate off the runway.

When Katherine Jenkins wore this dress the sculpted panel also looked very limp.

I must say I love Alexa Chung’s navy blue taffeta Katy Rodriguez Fall 2009 dress.

She does love a poufy skirt.

I’m also really attracted to her animal print bag.

As usual despite her fame Kristen Stewart doesn’t have much to smile about.

I like the fact that she attempted to tame the hair.  It’s much better than some of the horrors she’s been sporting lately.

I love the olive colour of her Valentino dress, and the soft pleats but I just can’t get excited about her in this dress.

For the third time this promotion tour Kristen wears Sergio Rossi heels.

Ashley Greene wore a D&G Pre-Fall 2009 black and cream butterfly appliqué dress with a black sash tied to the waist.

Stunning as always.

Nikki Reed has very much been in the background on this promotional tour, the others seem to be taking the limelight.

The stunning actress stood out wearing a gold satin cocktail D&G dress with a gorgeous crystal neckline paired with Jimmy Choo strappy heels.

Agyness Deyn wore a very bewitching lace look.

The dress is interesting, but I don’t like Deyn with black hair. She felt more vibrant as a blonde.

Looks like Halloween came around twice this week.

First Leighton Meester, and now with Taylor Momsen.

What is it with these Gossip Girls?

After Taylor lighten up with the make-up and calmed down with the wannabee rock chick ensembles, the raccoon eyes are back.

I love her Dolce & Gabbana dress, on someone like Dita von Teese it would be amazing.

The cast of “Gossip Girl” always appear to be going to some charity gala, or red carpet event that requires a luscious gown.

Taylor Momsen had an early start filming at the ‘French Society of Art and Culture’ in New York City this morning, but she kept away the chill wearing a Moschino Fall 2009 safety pin and studded embellished coat.

Under that coat was a stunning Andrew GN Fall 2009 black sequin gown which is recognisable by the web-like detail on the bodice.

I love her updo in these pictures – très chic. I also love her antique-style fan earrings.

I’d be in heaven spending the day in the wardrobe department on this show. I hope these girls realise how lucky they are get to wear these great pieces. *jealous*

I can’t wait to see this gown on the show, as it was one of my favourites from Andrew GN’s Fall 2009 collection.

Chace Crawford was also on set looking devilishly handsome.

I searched all over and couldn’t find anything modified on Donatella Versace’s Spring 2010 strapless blush gown.

I guess her mantra was in this case, ‘if it ain’t broke why fix it?’

I would go as far as to say that I prefer this gown on Donatella, because the bodice is more tightly fasten giving Donatella a stunning silhouette.

Shakira got the honour of wearing a gown from the recently presented Atelier Versace Fall 2009 collection.

The gunmetal gown had a corseted bodice which reduced the singers already tiny waist, before skimming her famous curves and revealing her sexy legs via a central split.

Leather details accented the strapless gown, which looks great on Shakira but fails to wow as I would’ve expected.

Despite Lake Bell wearing a simpler gown I love the way she totally owns this look.

The colour is divine on her olive skin and the cut accentuates her toned figure.

Taylor Momsen wore stunning nude Grecian Versace Fall 2009 chiffon gown embellished with metal details around her waist.

I love the gown, but hair and make-up pour cold water all over this look for me.

She could have laid off the heavy eye-liner for one night.

Nothing surprises me about Alexa Chung’s look. The ankle boots were very much expected.

I’m just glad she’s not wearing them with a beautiful gown.

Mischa Barton is already quite a broad shouldered girl, so I was surprised she picked the only gown from the Versace Fall 2009 collection which would highlight her broad shoulders.

The sapphire blue is beautiful on her though.

Lisa Edelstein may not have been wearing a Versace gown, but her Pamella Roland Fall 2009 black gown was just as a elegant as the rest.

I love the black velvet spiral detail around her waist and the bejeweled strap.

Great look for her.

If this was a model face-off Isabeli Fontana would win.

The Versace Fall 2009 aqua dress is hugging her in all the right places, whereas it’s just hanging off Chanel Iman.

Lindsay Lohan arrived at this event wearing a fluffy pink Versace Fall 2009 coat, but removed it inside to reveal a strapless gold mini dress.

I expected it to be from her recent Emanuel Ungaro Spring 2010 disaster collection, but the gold dress may have been custom made for her by Donatella for this event.

Since Jennifer Hudson had her baby boy we haven’t really seen her glammed up on the red carpet until this event.

She didn’t let us or herself down by looking like a fairytale princess wearing a blush pink Versace gown, which she paired with a matching pink clutch and diamond bracelets.

She was my 3rd favourite of the night after Lake Bell.

Taylor changed into a Versus Spring 2010 mini black dress, as she was the DJ at the after party.

I guess this explains the heavy eye make-up, as it’s much more appropriate for this LBD.

The stockings?? I can’t even go there.

Amber Heard walked the red carpet looking outstanding wearing a vintage Oscar de la Renta black gown.

The sheer gown with a lace underlay and lace cap sleeves shimmers from the embroidered embellishments all over the gown.

Her hair, make-up and Dana David jewelry are perfection.

The ribbon tied around her waist was a nice finishing touch.

BDOTW contender for sure.

Jessica Szohr arrived wearing a grey Proenza Schouler coat dress paired with black jeans and snake skin peep-toes.

Not quite as ready carpet ready I would have hoped, but I guess because she’s not in the movie she didn’t feel the need to dress up.

Taylor Momsen went for a gothic look teaming a lace minidress, patterned tights and a crucifix with heavy eye make-up.

I don’t hate the look as she doesn’t look too disheveled, but she could so wear this look to a Halloween party.

Maybe Blake Lively is like me and she hates horror movies because she wasn’t seen on the red carpet, but she was seen with her boyfriend Penn Badgley at the after party.

The gorgeous actress wore a Smythe tweed slouchy boyfriend blazer paired with a white tee, black leather pants and Giuseppe Zanotti studded pumps.

Taylor Momsen was recently pictured on the set of “Gossip Girl” in Central Park, New York.

As you can see from the pictures her make-up is lighter, her hair looks like a comb has actually been through it, and her wardrobe isn’t too grungy.

Is Little J turning over a new style leaf?

Her look included lace up ankle boots, a Topshop lace dress, tights and an Alexander Wang stone-washed grey leather and black cotton jersey hoodie jacket with an asymmetric zip.

I’m guessing this cleaner look is down to on-screen love interest Kevin Zegers.

You can buy her hoodie jacket from Saks.com for $1,285, or farfetch.com for £1,330/€1,599.

“Gossip Girl” starts in the UK tomorrow night on ITV2 at 8pm.

Known for her mix of vintage glamour, art and culturally inspired-design, Anna Sui developed her Target collection inspired by the distinct looks of “Gossip Girl” characters Serena van der Woodsen, Blair Waldorf, Jenny Humphrey and Vanessa Abrams.

You may remember I did a post on the looks a few months ago.

Today Target opened a limited-time-only pop-up store in celebration of the Anna Sui for Target collection launch to give New Yorkers the opportunity to shop the entire collection before it hits stores nationwide on September 13th.

Emma Stone was one of the many guests at the launch party last night.

She wore a white lace accented with a blue bow from Blair Waldorf’s collection with uninspiring black pumps.

Blake Lively was there to support the collection, but wasn’t actually wearing the collection.

She wore a cute multi-coloured tiered dress with the same Christian Louboutin studded heels Alexandra Burke wore earlier this week, plus a stack of bangles.

Fresh faced and gorgeous as always.

Jessica Szohr gave us her best diva poses as she walked the red carpet wearing a cropped top and black jeans, with some questionable animal print heels.

Michelle Trachtenberg opted for a bright floral dress which she partially covered with a leather jacket

OMG. Taylor Momsen gets scarier and scarier for me.

The T-shirt and high-waisted skirt aren’t the issue.

It’s the hair and make-up.

You can check out the Anna Sui for Target collection online.
