Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Terri Seymour showed off her enviable figure wearing a black Versace Spring 2009 mini dress, with an asymmetrical strap.

I much prefer the strapless runway version.

Christina Applegate was so desperate to get inside and see who the winner was, we only briefly got to see her Rebecca Taylor Spring 2009 gold embellished tank.

Carrie Underwood matches a pink plaster to her flirty neon Jenny Packham Pre-Fall 2009 dress.

I love the fruity embellished shoulder straps.

Paula Abdul looked outstanding for the first time in a long time wearing a body-hugging gold strapless number, by Danish designer Rikke Gudnitz.

This has to be one her best looks ever. The gown very much reminds me of the Thierry Mugler dress which Beyonce wore recently.

Fergie is electric in her electric blue Alexander McQueen silk satin shift dress, with strappy Stuart Weitzman silver sandals, and silver bangles.

Heather Locklear arrived looking super casual wearing white jeans and a nude top, whilst her daughter got all dressed up, looking super cute in a striped and polka dotted Betsey Johnson Spring 2008 mini dress, with sequins all over.

Kara DioGuardi arrived wearing a gorgeous dramatic black strapless gown. Hopefully to mourn the end of her stint on American Idol.

She drives me mental, plus she slows the show down.

Simon Cowell’s former girlfriend Terr Seymour, walked the red carpet at the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Gala this weekend.

Looking gorgeous as we would expect, the former model wore a DKNY Ikat print strapless dress which had a fruity hint of summer.

The dress has a sweetheart neckline, a chiffon bodice with boned detailing, a self-tie sash, and side pockets.

You can show-off your shoulders in this gorgeous dress, by purchasing it from the international site of Net-A-Porter.com for £280/€343.62.

I really struggle with Miley Cyrus when it comes to her style on the red carpet.

I do like this Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 mini dress. It was one of the very few pieces I actually liked from this collection, but I don’t feel Miley has the panache to pull it off.

I feel like she picked it out of her mother closet, and is playing dress-up.

This dress also needs the wearer to pull their hair right back off their face and shoulders, because the pretty detail on the front is lost under her hair.

Plus, the way she is showing off the layered and ruffled skirt at the back is way too proactive for my liking.

Gucci Ambassador Rihanna, picked one of the floaty strapless maxi dress from their Spring 2009 collection to walk the red carpet.

Although the dress, does not quite fit with her current bad-ass image, it looks very pretty on her despite her twins looking very squashed.

This look is slightly edgier than we would expect from Taylor Swift.

She pulls off this Collette Dinnigan Spring 2009 LBD with silver sequin embellishments with a style and charisma that fellow teen Miley just doesn’t possess.

I would’ve liked to have seen her hair straight with this dress.

Estelle wore a nude Fendi Spring 2009 tunic, with latex leggings, and black peep-toes.

Katy Perry wore a lilac mini dress from couture designer Georges Chakra.

The dress had a sheer yoke, which was embellished like the rest of the dress. I’m not normally a fan of sheer yokes, but in this case it looks like it’s needed to keep Katy’s twins under control.

The tulle hem is divine.

Regular readers will know my frustrations with Leona Lewis and wearing tights on the red carpet. No matter the event, and no matter what she is wearing, she is guaranteed to be wearing them.

This for me puts a downer on her Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2009 LBD, with it’s silver embellished halter detail. What also puts me off this dress, is the quite unnecessary piece at the back of the dress.

The only saving grace, is her make-up and her stunning sparkling clutch.

Carrie Underwood is usually all about bright colours and heavy embellishments, so imagine my surprise to see her tone down her red carpet look with this Pamella Roland Spring 2009 black and silver beaded dot dress.

It’s nice to see her versatility on the red carpet.

Jennifer Hudson’s Balenciaga heels are to-die-for. I have to own these.

Jennifer arrived with Clive Davis on the red carpet wearing a Todd Lynn LBD, and looked flawless. I especially loved her eye make-up.

Terri Seymour redeemed herself from her hideous crimped hair last week, to a wavy style which suits her better.

The TV presenter looked ever-so-cute wearing a strapless yellow and navy printed DKNY Spring 2009 mini dress, which she wore with Christian Louboutin Mary Janes.

Pregnancy definitely agrees with Kimora Lee Simmons, as her look has soften from the less desirable ensemble she wore pre-pregnancy.

She walked the red carpet with her baby-daddy actor Djimon Hounsou wearing a ABS for Peas In A Pod gown, with a rosette detail on the shoulder.

Tattoo’s aside I really like this lavender dress on Fantasia, which she wears with a Mary Norton clutch.

Sheryl Crow’s tan is almost as dark as her bronze Ports 1961 dress, which she also wears with a Mary Norton clutch.

For some unknown reason Keyshia Cole decided to show off her leg in every picture on the red carpet.

Nice dress, shame about her desperate attempts to be noticed.

Great colour on Kelly Clarkson. I would have but money on her wearing black, but she opted for this perwinkle blue gown instead.

Boo to Duffy for letting us Brits down at this event by looking so plain.

Seeing this picture Whitney Houston gives me chills, as it takes me back to 1987, when I was totally in love with Whitney, and I would single along to her songs like a deluded contestant on American Idol.

If you weren’t aware like Britney, Whitney’s back. Both in spirit and in song. I just wish she hadn’t sported road-kill to perform at this event.

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.

Best Couple/Best Dressed Female Award
I love Victoria Beckham, you know I do, but for her to walk the red carpet with sunglasses on, (one of my red carpet NO NO’s) is beyond pretentious, although I do appreciate that she is channeling Audrey Hepburn here.

Luckily for her she has that hot arm candy in her husband David Beckham, and she wore a stunning primrose yellow RM for Roland Mouret Pre-Fall 2008 ‘Kleber’ cocktail dress, with an origami-pleated neckline, and full-length zip at the back, which makes me forgive, but not forget.

What I also admire is her restraint to not have worn shoes to match her dress.

Best Dressed Male Award
Hotness.

In some pictures it looked like David Beckham had tucked his tie into his shirt, but the soccer stud was actually wearing a white waistcoat. Such a smooth look for the handsome Becks wearing a Spencer Hart suit and Tom Ford shoes

David won Best MLS Player on the night, a feat that was not very difficult.

Best White Award
For such a hot sunny day TV personality Terri Seymour chose right with this white Azzedine Alaia mini dress, which she matched with gold YSL tribute pumps.

Best Sparkle Awards
I love Venus Williams – who looks a lot like Serena here – in this black and silver sequined plunge-neck Diane von Furstenberg dress with Giuseppe Zanotti strappy heels.

The more championships she wins, the better her style becomes.

Best Female Over 6ft Award
It is not easy being tall, muscular and dressing elegantly, but WNBA player Candace Parker pulls it off, looking very glamourous in her champagne gown.

The star won Best Female Athlete on the night.

Best Accessories Award
I would never have thought to match yellow with grey, but IRL driver Danica Patrick, makes it work with her Nanette Lepore Spring 2008 strapless mini dress.

Not crazy about her hair though.

Simple, But Elegant Award
Sophia Bush’s dark olive one-shouldered Fendi Fall 2008 gown, is a huge departure from her normal style of thigh high dresses.

I adore her earrings.

Best Mini Award
Kristen Bell kept is short and very sweet in this strapless purple Jil Stuart Resort 2009 bustier dress, which she accessorized with a long necklace with a huge pendent.

Best At Sticking To What Works Best Award
Model Adriana Lima wore this Alessandro Dell’Acqua dress, which you would very much expect her to wear as it’s cute and short.

Best At Not Playing It Safe/Best Legs Award
Kate Walsh could have worn a dress like Sophia Bush and played it safe, but the actress wanted to have fun last night, and it showed.

The Private Practice star wore a short purple and silver sequined Jenny Packham cocktail dress, which showed off her sexy legs.

She completed her look with strappy Calvin Klein heels.

Just Not Sure Award
I am not sure if I like this printed maxi dress on Ashanti or I hate it, so I am staying on the fence.
