Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Tyra Banks In Peter Pilotto - ANTM2

Tyra Banks loves bodycon dresses as much as I love jumpsuits, so I was pleasantly surprised to see this picture of her pop up on Twitter today.

Looking like a living doll, the ‘America’s Next Top Model’ judge wore a Peter Pilotto hyper-vivid print dress which makes for a refreshing change.

Her frock, which hails from the Resort 2012 collection, features a strong pattern which has been placed to maximize the fit-and-flare silhouette.

Without a hair out of place, she worked a half-up, half-down retro ‘do to complement the aesthetic.

Tyra Banks toned down from last years event where she was easily one of the worst dress, to one of the Best Dressed of this event – which wasn’t that much of a challenge.

The TV presenter arrived on the red carpet wearing a coral one-shoulder Rachel Roy Resort 2010 dress, with beige Manolo Blahnik heels and a Sang A nude clutch.

I’m loving the natural look she’s giving us these days, it’s so refreshing and it totally suits her.

She was able strike the right balance of elegance & sophistication.

Ashley Jones wore a flowing backless Matthew Williamson for H&M Summer 2009 floral gown.

Some of you may have this dress in your closets if you were lucky enough to buy this gown before it sold out.

I love the tiered ruffled skirt and the neutral accessories she paired with her gown.

Portia de Rossi’s navy off-the-shoulder Monique Lhullier Resort 2010 gown is absolutely stunning in its simplicity.

My only disappointment is that opted for thong sandals to complete her Grecian look.

She’s married to Ellen DeGeneres not Tom Cruise, surely Ellen wouldn’t object to her wearing heels.

I much prefer Heather Tom’s choice of this navy Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2009 fringed dress, as I feel the burnt orange colour wouldn’t have been flattering to her colouring.

The dress is exquisite which she pairs with Christian Dior heels.

Lara Spencer wore a black and white asymmetrical ruffled gown accented with a red belt.

Her gown was a bold choice and will no doubt have you on the fence, but I was crushing on her Valentino Couture red patent bow peep-toes which was on my favourites list last week.

Lori Loughlin elegantly posed on the red carpet wearing a peachy satin asymmetrical Enzoani gown with embellished details on the shoulder and hip.

Gold tone accessories including Loree Rodkin jewels, Renee Caovilla heels, and Bottega Venetta purse completed her look.

Jennie Garth channeled old Hollywood with her wavy ‘do and vibrant orange Issa gown accented with a sparkling brooch.

She sparkled with silver accessories.

Kirsten Storms sported a wavy ‘do as she walked the red carpet wearing a Tadashi Shoji navy silk chiffon one shoulder gown with white silk organza rosette strap.

Her look was paired with a navy Kotur clutch.

Rachael Ray was one of the winners of the night.

She walked the red carpet wearing a plum draped halter dress with a gold coil neckline.  She was one of the few to opt out of wearing a gown.

Susan Lucci is very much the Queen of daytime soaps.

The Queen shone brightly as she sparkled in a coral embellished halter neck Zuhair Murad gown.

Gina Tognoni looked sensational in this raspberry bow tied gown with a ruffled cascading down the front of her gown.

Like the dress, but I’m not crazy the hair.

Marcy Rylan opted for the mothers-to-be favourite red carpet Peas In A Pod gown.

This rose gown with a rosette detail on the shoulder, was also worn by Kimora Lee Simmons.

Kristen Alfonso attracted me with her stunning electric blue one-shouldered gown.

The embellished neckline is also exquisite.

Nadia Bjorlin was oozing sexy glamour wearing a backless gown, with a gold embellished detail draping from her neck and down her back.

Taylor Spreitler’s fuschia pink one-shouldered gown was one of my favourites.

It’s’ simple, colourful and she didn’t over accessorize her look.

Michelle Stafford strapless floral black and white gown is beautiful.

I love any dress that give a woman this stunning Jessica Rabbit/mermaid silhouette.

Stacy Haiduk was the joker of the night as she carried a cat purse on the red carpet.

Ad Between Posts

The cast of “Gossip Girl” is already incredibly glamorous, but recently supermodel Tyra Banks was on set with Hilary Duff filming scenes for the hit show at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York.

Tyra sported retro waves and large chandelier earrings whilst wearing a Marchesa Fall 2007 black gown with a beaded bodice.

Both Molly Sims and Ashanti have worn this gown on the red carpet.

Along with Valentino bags, Marchesa dresses seem to be favoured on the show as Hilary is wearing one from the Spring 2009 collection, and Leighton Meester wore a Spring 2008 ball-gown as Blair Waldorf to the Prom.

The second supermodel on set this week was Elle MacPherson.

She was shooting scenes on Mischa Barton’s new TV show “The Beautiful Life” in New York.

Sporting larger than life hair and black shades, Elle channeled her inner VB wearing Victoria Beckham’s ‘Carmontelle’ Fall 2009 dress with metallic heels.

This dress is the same dress Victoria wore on her ad shoot, and Leighton Meester wore on the set of Gossip Girl recently.

I feel a who wore it better on set? post coming up.

2009 BET Awards

Most Predictable Award
Their would’ve been no prizes for guessing that Beyonce Knowles would have worn Balmain to this event, as she’s worn so many Balmain pieces both on and off the red carpet.

She did pick a very colourful interesting piece with a swirling sequin pattern and a jagged hem.

I love the dress and the playful hoop earrings, but the hair I’m not fond of.

Worst Re-Run Award
Letoya Luckett wore a lace, crystal embellished, zipper dress from the Balmain Fall 2008 dress which we’ve already seen on the red carpet.

She looks good in the dress, but those clunky gold Alejandro Ingelmo clown heels just ruin the look.

Sticky But Sweet Award
Leather on a hot sunny day?

I’m getting hot just looking at Ciara, but her ruched maroon leather Cynthia Steffe Fall 2009 dress does look amazing on her, plus I love the ruffled detail.

The singer kept both her accessories and make-up light and neutral.

Best Dressed Award
Alicia Keys really stood out in her Moroccan inspired embellished mini Jenny Packham dress, and her larger-than-life curly ‘do.

The singer completed her look with Christian Louboutin Spartenvol Strass 100 sandals and a matching nude clutch.

Best Minimalist Award
Whilst everyone seemed to be opting for lavish embellished pieces, Zoe Saldana looked stunning wearing a white one-sleeved Calvin Klein dress with a cut-out detail on the hip and a daring slash to the thigh.

Brian Atwood heels completed the look.

Most Ridiculous Award
In the attempt to grab headlines Melody Thornton comes of looking ridiculous in her Alexander McQueen dress.

This ombre fringed dress with a nude body-stocking would be great as a stage costume, but on the red carpet it just doesn’t work.

The asymmetrical fringed details don’t cover enough of the body-stocking leaving her exposed.

She really didn’t think her look through.

Most Safe Award
I’m really not liking Taraji P. Henson mullet, but I do love the elegant black Kaufman Franco one-sleeved gown with leather strapped detail on the back.

The unfortunately thing here is that the backless nature of the gown reveals her lower back tattoo.

I would’ve preferred her to wear something funkier for this occasion.

Trying WAY Too Hard Award
Cassie used to be so sweet, so this harder image to rival Rihanna just doesn’t work for me.

It’s so false from the hair cut to the peek-a-boo Mark Fast knit dress to the Giuseppe Zanotti fold-over booties

Screams wannabee.

Best Super Hero Award
Singer Keri Hilson channels her inner Wonder Woman wearing a black bustier dress adorned with multi-coloured stars and other interesting shapes.

Her look was a little more risky than the others which made her stand out.

She could have easily over done her look with lots of bling, but she knows her statement dress should do all the talking.

Casadei black satin pumps completes this look.

Best Heels Award
Amerie opted for a LWD with Alexander McQueen peep-toe booties.

Best Homage Award
Estelle paid homage to the late Michael Jackson by wearing a single white glove with her denim tiered Acne baroque peplum dress.

I love the cute nature of this dress with the contrasting silver spiked earrings.

Just OK Award
Actress Keke Palmer wore an embellished dress with sparkled in the LA sunshine.

Most Original Award
Tyra Banks could have been predictable and worn  Balmain or slinky dress instead she tired something new wearing a menswear-inspired satin ensemble.

I wouldn’t have thought Tyra could pull off an androgynous look but she totally works it.

Her look includes midnight blue satin skinny pants, a dove grey vest and satin pussy bow blouse, with suede Trib Two pumps.

Neutral make up and simply styled hair make this look work.

I’m not sure what has been happening to Tyra Banks lately, but look seems to have finally be exorcised of all her former tranny traits.

Her desire to be seen as ‘Fieerrce’ all the time, has been replaced by a soft, more lady-like and charming Tyra.

Seeing this minimalist white Calvin Klein Spring 2009 dress on the runway, I would never have imagine Tyra wearing it, but she pulls it off gracefully and without over accessorizing.

This the second Chloé look that Chloe Sevigny’s has rocked this week. Firstly the scalloped short suit, now this Chloé scalloped-edge blazer, with cut-off denim shorts, and black ankle booties.

As always when I look at Chloe, the hair lets her down. The comb-over should be only sported by balding men.
