Runway To 2010 Film Independent Spirit Awards – Vera Farmiga In Marchesa

Best Modification Award
Vera Farmiga made the right choice at the 2010 Film Independent Spirit Awards.

As much as I love gowns on a red carpet, the Spirit Awards isn’t about that. It’s more casual, so I love that Vera shortened her Marchesa Resort 2010 red dress to make it more event appropriate.

I don’t however like her peep-toes as they almost blend into her skin-tone.

Yes it would’ve been too matchy matchy, but I would’ve preferred red heels on this occasion.

Runway To 2010 BAFTAs – Vera Farmiga In Marchesa

When I saw Harvey Weinstein at the 2010 BATFA’s tonight I was excited in the hope that Georgina Chapman would also walk the red carpet in one of her self designed Marchesa gowns.

She didn’t but Vera Farmiga did.

The “Up in the Air” actress opted for a white asymmetrical Marchesa Spring 2010 gown which had an origami shoulder detail and a black sash tied to the waist.

As hard as I tried I didn’t love this gown on Vera.

I do like it, but didn’t love it and I still can’t quite put my finger on why I didn’t love it.

Maybe it was the hair, maybe a pop of on her lips would’ve made all the difference, maybe I’m just asking for too much.

Her look was paired with Asprey jewels.

2010 SAG Awards – Vera Farmiga In J.Mendel

Injustice Award
I spent such a long time looking for a picture of Vera Farmiga.

That’s because all the pictures don’t do any justice to her stunning J.Mendel Spring 2010 gown.

She looked much better on screen.

The blue pleated gown with nude cap sleeves and belt was very ethereal, and looked so delicate.

The only downside for me was that her make-up was a tad matchy matchy.

“Up In The Air” LA Premiere

Nope, there wasn’t a wedding in Hollywood last night, but two stars arrived on the red carpet wearing white gowns.

Vera Farmiga opted for a beautiful angelic white chiffon Dolce & Gabbana gown.

This gown totally shatters the theory that all Dolce & Gabbana gowns on the red carpet have to have a tulle mermaid hem.

Anna Kendrick opted for an ethereal one-shoulder Jenny Packham chiffon gown, which she accessorized with a crystal Swarovski clutch.

I love the ruffled details going down the gown, but I think it washes her out a tad, whereas Vera is glowing in comparison.

Cindy Crawford may not have worn a gown, but she proves she’s definitely still got ‘it’ wearing a figure-hugging indigo dress and sexy gladiator sandals.

Kayla Ewell loves French Connection.

We often see her wearing this brand on the red carpet proving high-street can be chic and red carpet ready.

The actress wore an asymmetrical French Connection bonny dress in a gorgeous green colour, which really brings out her eyes.

Olivia Munn also opted a French Connection dress.

Hers was a teal sparkling French Connection Spirit dress worn with ivory pumps.

This Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2009 dress was a great colour choice for Melanie Lynskey.

I love the structured pleated front detail, but the dress looks a bit creased.

Behind tights and ankle boots on the red carpet creases make me shiver.

“Orphan” LA Premiere”

Vera Farmiga, who is the lead actress in this movie, looked stunning wearing a Versace Spring 2009 white silk one-shoulder gown with a heart shaped and zipper detailing on the bodice.

The gown was paired with nude leather zipper sandals, a metallic gold paillette clutch and Versace Fine jewelry.

Her hair was elegant styled into a chic updo and I would say the look was head-to-toe perfect, but the heart detail on her dress looks a bit crushed, but it’s always difficult to achieve runway perfection.

I’m not sure who’s idea it was to sex up little Miss Rossum, but I like it.

Earlier this week we saw Emmy Rossum wearing a black structured Ungaro dress, and for this premiere we get more of the same.  An edgy urban look via this Phi Fall 2009 high-neck dress with a paisley print and exposed zipper.

It kinda has a biker feel to it don’t you think?

I’m glad she opted out of the long leather gloves, the tights, and the belt, but I would have loved her to have worn her hair in a slick back tight pony.

Here is a first red carpet look of Ciara’s new shorter do.

Personally I don’t like it. Mostly because it feels like a quick reaction to Rihanna’s recent crop.

The singer wore black leather skinny pants with a gold sequined Gryphon racer back tank top.

I’m not quite sure what’s going on here, but I know it don’t like it.

Kim Kardashian opted for a strange Proenza Schouler T-shirt bustier dress which looks like she has a black tee shirt under a white strapless dress.

The dress is paired with a YSL cage belt and YSL trib two heels, but even they can’t save this look.

Kim’s make-up is usually flawless, but on this occasion I can’t say I love it.
