Toni Collette In AllSaints – CW, CBS And Showtime 2013 Summer TCA Party

Toni Collette In AllSaints - CW, CBS And Showtime 2013 Summer TCA Party

Toni Collette joined a host of stars on the red carpet yesterday evening for the CW, CBS & Showtime TCA party in Los Angeles, California.

While she also wore black like Sarah Michelle Gellar, her AllSaints one-shoulder frock is considerably more lightweight and isn’t made of leather.

Even if it was, those pink Rachel Roy strappy sandals would make me forgive and forget.

Adding a croc-embossed waistband to her look enhances her svelte figure, with other accessories including a black Kotur clutch and gold jewels.

Sleek, straight blonde tresses and neutral makeup completed her sexy, sophisticated look.

Toni Collette In Alex Perry – ‘Hitchcock’ LA Premiere

Toni Collette really stood out on the red carpet at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California for the ‘Hitchcock’ LA premiere.

Firstly because she looked divine wearing an Alex Perry Pre-Fall 2013 dress; secondly because of the colour.

She was determined not to fade into the background this time around.

Toni’s amazing one-shoulder fitted dress, which features the Australian designer’s signature corsetry, was let down by some meh styling.

Nude accessories including a snakeskin clutch and Jerome C. Rousseau ‘Kier’ nude patent d’orsay peep toes wouldn’t have been my first choice for her red dress. I think sticking to classic black or gold would’ve worked better for her.

Also, three gold cuffs seems a bit excessive; one, or two at a push, would’ve sufficed.

I can’t fault her hair or makeup though. She looked radiant and was easily my best dressed of the night.

2010 Emmy Awards – Toni Collette In Valentino

Botanical Beauty Award
Toni Collette was nominated at the 2010 Emmy Awards in the “Outstanding Actress in a Comedy” for “The United States of Tara”.

The Australian actress wore a dramatic masterpiece on the red carpet.

Her strapless grey Valentino Resort 2011 gown had a divine botanical hem.

I’m glad she didn’t over accessorize.

I love the colour and appreciate that this strapless style works well for Toni.

Bochic jewelry and a Judith Leiber clutch completed her look.

Who Wore Rafael Cennamo Better? Toni Collette or Paulina Rubio

When I first saw Toni Collette hit the red carpet wearing this Rafael Cennamo Spring 2010 gown at the 2010 SAG Awards, I wasn’t blown away.

I did love the gold and blush empire beaded bodice cascade gown, but I still don’t think it was quite right for the SAGs.

Last night at the 2010 Premio Lo Nuestro a La Musica Latina Awards, singer Paulina Rubio wore the same gown.

What I find very strange is that Toni appears taller and more statuesque, whereas Paulina looks short in the same gown which does appear to be modified.

For this reason I think Toni carries the look better, so she wins for me.

2010 SAG Awards – Toni Collette In Rafael Cennamo

Most Disappointing Award
When I saw this Rafael Cennamo strapless gold and blush gown on Toni Collette the first person to come to mind was Nicole Richie.

Nicole would go ape for this maxi look, but I think Toni is better than this. Especially considering how much of a knock out she was at the Globes in Elie Saab.

This is was a huge step back for me.

The gown itself is nice, especially the beaded bodice with turquoise touches which Toni complemented her matching earrings, but I didn’t like the tiered skirt.

Her look was complete with a gold crystal and leather Daniel Swarovski Lana clutch.

18.01.10 Best Dressed

2010 Golden Globes Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award

I was a bit underwhelmed by this red carpet until I saw Diane Kruger.

Ever since I attended the Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 Couture show in January last year I’ve been praying to see this gown on the red carpet.

Diane more than does this stunning pink ombre gown justice. The colour really pops on the soggy red carpet on a cold and rainy night in LA.

I love the sleek old Hollywood hairstyle. She was really out to impress.

Her white Raven Kauffman Couture clutch matched the pretty white bow on the side of her dress.

Most Predictable Award

There would’ve been no prizes for guessing that Marion Cotillard would wear Christian Dior.

Style.com even predicted that exact dress she would wear.

Being the face of ‘Lady Dior’ helps, plus when we see her in Dior we always get spectacular results.

Her petrol green satin asymmetrical Spring 2010 dress has a thigh-high split with a black négligée peeping through.

Jimmy Choo ‘Drake’ sandals and Chopard jewels complete her look.

Biggest Shock Award

Courteney Cox walked the red carpet last night wearing a black strapless dress from Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2010 collection.

Like most pieces from VB’s collection the dress was well structured and had a ‘top to hem’ zipper along the back.

I liked the jeweled detail on the empire waist, and the chic updo Courteney sported.

Normally I don’t care much for Courteney on the red carpet, but she really surprised me by how great she looked.

She carried a black Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch.

Her husband actor David Arquette dutifully kept her dry from the pouring rain.

Best Couture Award

This is definitely one of those ‘better on screen look’s.  Unfortunately the picture isn’t doing Drew Barrymore any favours.

Her Atelier Versace Fall 2009 one shoulder champagne gown was stunning.

The nude corset was covered by a nude crystallized overlay, with two clusters of glass fringes on the shoulder and the hip.

Her hair was swept back as not to interfere with the details, as the actress wore Lorraine Schwartz jewels to complete her look.

It’s A Grower Award

I’ve been going back and forth with Julianne Moore.

I was just about to put her on the Worst Dressed list, when I decided that her Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2008 dress wasn’t as bad as I first thought.  Mostly because she looks so elegant.

The grey colour initially put me off this silk bustier gown, but I really like the pleated lace detailed neckline and her green Bvlgari earrings were magnificent.

Black suede Balenciaga stingray sandals complete the look.

Beautiful, Even When Slightly Wet Award

Chloe Sevigny would’ve been the most worried about getting her rose Valentino sleeveless gown wet as it would’ve deflated those beautiful ruffles.

But she was lucky to have a someone to help shield her dress from the rain.

Buccellati jewels complete the look.

Va Va Voom ‘Jessica Rabbit’ Award

Christina Hendricks has the most amazing body, which she always dresses so well.

She leaves me breathless in this stunning Christian Siriano Spring 2010 gown which was custom-made to hug those delicious curves.

She carried a Christian Loubuotin ‘Kephron’ silver clutch and wore Loree Rodkin jewels. Read More…
