CFDA Awards Red Carpet

If there was a picture to depict redemption, this would be it.

Since crossing the pond, Victoria’s red carpet moments have not been showing her at her best.

Off the red carpet, not many can match her in the style department, but let’s face it Victoria Beckham’s Costume Institute Gala make-up and hair were a mess, and not many liked her peek-a-boo Marc Jacobs dress on the Victoria Secrets pink carpet.

This one-shouldered Marc Jacobs mini dress on the other hand is stunning.

We have seen ruffles on many red carpets recently, but Marc Jacobs gives this dress a twist with heart-shaped ruffles.

Her hair slicked back makes a nice change, and her foundation, this time is a close match the rest of her skin-tone.

10 out of 10 Mrs B.

Fellow Brit Naomi Campbell, the face of YSL Fall 2008, wore a YSL Fall 2008 ensemble including a black sheer shirt and black sequined jodhpur-style, billowing pants which narrowed at the ankle.

Looks like she has managed to sort out her hair issues, with a brand new weave.

Ashley Olsen is wearing a mannish Calvin Klein Resort 2009 tux, but manages to still look very feminine.

You feel that this ensemble is very much a homage to the late Yves Saint Laurent and his Le Smoking Tuxedo.

Wow, Hilary Duff is dazzling in this purple sequined Michael Kors tank dress.

I love the updo, the length of the dress, the snake-skin shoes and the stunning earrings.

Faultless.

Eva Mendes may be wearing just a plain white Calvin Klein Resort 2008 dress, but I love the detail on the bodice, which narrows at the waist, giving her a sleek silhouette.

Her jewelery is by Van Cleef & Arpels.

Eva Longoria disappoints big style.

You can usually rely on Eva to look fantastic on the red carpet, so this is a shock.

Her hair looks a big ragged. Not at all in the manor of her usual sleek styles.

The JLo eye make-up is not the right shade for her skin-tone, nor does it compliment her dress, and think this was the intention.

The Diane von Furstenberg dress has overly enhanced her, giving her a very cheap Pamela Anderson type look.

Only her clutch and her shoes survived this disaster.

Maggie Gyllenhaal was on presenting duties for the night.

Like many of the A list fashion pack, she is wearing an ensemble that has not even been uploaded on to Style.com yet, such is it newness.

She is wearing a green-and-black sheer tunic, embellished with sequins, and silk pants from the Proenza Schouler Resort 2009 collection.

Paula Patton looks so pretty with her side-swept bangs, wearing a one-shouldered belted black white and grey Michael Kors Spring 2008 floral gown.

This look is a very clean, simple and dainty look for Mandy Moore, which I love, as it suits her so well.

The white piping on her Abaeté gown prevents it from looking stale.

Famke Janssen oozes glamour in this white David Meister Fall 2008 one sleeved jersey cocktail dress. She compliments her dress with silver accessories.

Kim Cattrall who presented Tom Ford with the Menswear Designer of the Year Award, wore a dress that would have been perfect for one of her Sex And The City premieres.

This asymmetric navy Monique Lhuillier Fall 2008 gown with an embellished shoulder, has got to be one of the best looks I have ever seen on her.

Anna Wintour is as elegant and sophisticated as ever, in beige lace sheath dress with gold sequined embellishments and her trademark bob.

Amy Poehler wore a navy poppy floral demi-sheer Marc Jacobs Spring 2008 dress. The low U-neckline adds a little sex appeal.

Lipstick Jungle actress Kim Raver is also wearing Marc Jacobs Spring 2008.

Her dress shows off Marc Jacobs eccentricities, with 4 different pieces of fabric put together to make this uniquely beautiful dress. This collection seems to work better off the runway.

Kim compliment her dress with nude pumps, and a bag also from the Spring 2008 collection.

Actress Lauren Hutton is divine in this silk slate grey Calvin Klein Spring 2008 jumpsuit.

For the first time, in a longtime, I am not offended by Lil Kim. In fact I quite like this keyhole purple hearted Marc Jacobs mini dress. Even the make-up is not too brash.

Has she turned a corner? I doubt it, but it will fun to see what she wears next.

Georgina Chapman stunning as ever in her own Marchesa Fall 2008 design.

Carolina Herrera is breath-taking in this ice white tuxedo she designed. Her white satin shoes compliment her white satin lapels.

Caroline received of the Geoffrey Bean Lifetime Achievement Award.

Diane von Furstenberg showed her respect by decided against the dress she originally wanted to wear to choose this navy vintage YSL tuxedo.

Donna Karan wore this red haltered top from her own collection.

Tory Burch the Accessory Designer Of The Year winner, wore a pink dress from her own collection.

Vera Wang is of course in her own Fall 2008 creation.

06.05.08 Worst Dressed

Costume Institute Gala – Worst Dressed

Most Confusing/Worst Dressed Award
I understand the theme, and I understand that Christina Ricci was going for Wonder Woman here, but the pink ruins what could have been a great Givenchy dress.

Maybe if the pink had been black it would have worked.

Shame.

Not So Golden Girl Award
Mary-Kate Olsen’s custom-made Diane von Furstenberg gold sequined dress had plunging neckline, and a sexy slit, but looks slightly too big on her, which is strange considering the dress is customed.

Her hair is a disaster and ruins anything that is good here.

Worst Hair Award
A pair of straighteners would have sorted that mess right out.

I would have much preferred it if this Calvin Klein dress was a plunge-neck instead of a turtle neck.

Your TV Stylist & Your Red Carpet Stylist Should Meet Award
What is up with Blake Lively lately on the red carpet?

For me she is hitting foul balls left, right and center. Her style started off great on the red carpet, but has been on a downward spiral ever since.

Blake was meant to be the Sarah Jessica Parker of my sisters generation both on and off the red carpet, but it is just not working. She looks about 20 years older than what she is here in this Ralph Lauren Fall 2008 strapless gown with feathered detail….Booorring.

As usual, I expected more for young Blake. Whoever is dressing her for Gossip Girl, needs to sprinkle some of that magic onto the red carpet.

Where was Leighton Meester? She would not have looked this bad.

Most Disappointing Award
This one goes out to Victoria Beckham, David of course looks gorgeous.

I love Victoria Beckham so this hurts, but her dress is too see-through and she appears to have nothing underneath, so I feel like I can see her boobs, her face looks too pale and I usually like her hair up but on this occasion, not so much.

It would also have no killed her to have smiled at least once on the red carpet.

Worst Dress/Shoes Combo
Here is another person I was not expecting to see on the worst list.

Katie Holmes looks great from the ankles up. Her vintage Giorgio Armani red sequined beaded bustier and full ball gown skirt from the Fall 1993 collection is amazing as is her Boucheron jewels, but why OH WHY did she wear those blue Louboutins?

Worst Embellishments Award
I was torn on Mischa Barton’s Missoni dress for a while.

I like the chiffon straps, but I am not so keen on the dripping bead work and the gold skirt with a taupe overlay.

Lame Award
Isn’t it amazing how Michelle Trachtenberg has matched her skirt to her gold lame petal nipple covers?

She is not quite rockin’ this vintage YSL dress in a way I had hoped.

Far Too Safe Award
Sarah Michelle Gellar was far too safe with this black shapeless strapless Bottega Veneta dress.

Worst Hair Accessories Award
I know thanks to Gossip Girl headbands are back, but I am not loving the jeweled headband on Amanda Peet. I am also not crazy about her moody Derek Lam Fall 2008 strapless gown with a matching waist belt.

Most Uncomfortable Award
It looks like Eva Amurri can not breath in this Louis Vuitton Fall 2008 dress.

Eva is a busty lady, and this dress is crushing her lady lumps.

Worst One Sleeve Award
I am NOT a fan of the one long sleeve and this ruins what would have been a great night for Fergie in Calvin Klein.

One-shouldered or even strapless would have worked better.

Worst Use Of Colour Award
Kimora Lee Simmons’ kids did not colour-in her dress. This dress was actually designed like this by Kevan Hall.

Worst Lace Award
I was never a fan of the entire Prada Fall 2008 collection being lace and was hoping not see it on the red carpet.

Unfortunately Tilda Swinton is wearing this Prada Fall 2008 beige lace dress, and to make matters worse, she wore an orange brooch and a green velvet shoes.

20.12.07 Best Of

Most Copied Hair Cut Of 2007 – The Pob


I don’t care what any of them say, they all copied the Pob (Posh Bob) from Victoria Beckham.

Although the bob cut has been around for many years and will always be a timeless look, the Pob took this hairstyle to an exciting new level with its asymmetrical twist.

Victoria told Harper’s Bazaar Australia, “I got sick of those bloody hair extensions.” She even went onto say that they were passion killers.

Celebrities Love…Roberto Cavalli

The words ‘subtle’ and ‘restrained’ are definitely not how you’d describe the beautiful creations of Roberto Cavalli.

Signature style: opulent, flamboyant, feminine, powerful and extremely sexy.

Roberto Cavalli loves to embellish and pile on the glitz and glamour to whatever he’s creating. In his vocabulary there are no such words as ‘moderation’, ‘understated’ and ‘plain’. Cavalli’s favourite materials to work with are animal and reptile skins, leather and suede – which he in turn dip-dyes, splatters with crystals or festoons with feathers.

Who loves him?

Kate Hudson


Kate Hudson is truly AMAZING in this gown from the Fall 2005 collection. She wore this gown to The Skeleton Key Premiere in London.

This is the best dress on this page. She looks just a good if not better than the model which is really rare.

Jennifer Lopez

This dress was taken from the Spring 2007 collection. Jennifer Lopez suits Cavalli’s designs as she embodies his style of being opulent, flamboyant, feminine, powerful and extremely sexy.


Jennifer Lopez does not just wear Cavalli on the red carpet or for photo shoots. Here is Jennifer wear in a thigh bearing mini dress from the Spring 2003 collection for a TV interview.

Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton

This dress is from the Spring 2006 collection which both Paris and Nicole wore (while they were enemies) on 2 different photo shoots. Paris’ was for Elle while Nicole posed for another magazine.

Paris Hilton


This Spring 2006 dress deserves to be on the red carpet, but on this occasion it was used for Paris’ Elle photo shoot. It is very cute on Paris.


Trust Paris to choose the only dress in the Spring 2004 collection that was nipple bearing.


This is a great dress, but not on Nicky. Out of the 2 colours of this Spring 2005 flamenco inspired gown, I much prefer the blue, although the pink suits Nicky better.

Christina Aguilera


Christina is Dirrty in 2002 as she attends the VH1 Big in 2002 Awards wearing this Spring 2003 Red leather corset dress.

There were other variations of this dress. One was worn by Natalia Vodianova on the catwalk and the other was worn by Karolina Kurkova at the 2003 show, but I think Christina made the right choice.


“I’m like a bird, I only fly away……” This dress is hilarious but some how it works on Christina.

Here she is at the 2003 VMA’s, wearing this bird inspired dress from the Fall 2003 collection. I actually preferred the baby baby pink long feathered dress but it is not very Christina or Xtina, as she was that the time.


Christina wore this dress to the 2002 VMA’s from the Fall 2002 collection. I like the dress and the way she has accessorized her bracelets, but I hate the hair.

Even though Christina has worn Roberto Cavalli before, I doubt she will wear his designs again after a falling out over fur. She blamed Cavalli for tricking her into wearing fox fur onstage (he was her tour designer in 2006) after the singer received an email from PETA.

Carmen Electra


“Lady in Red” Carmen chose the right colour for her from the Fall 2005 collection. The white dress is too virginal, too bridal. Cameron is a red hot woman and this dress shows that.

Sheryl Crow


This dress is GORGEOUS, the colour, the style, everything about it is beautiful….on the model.

Unfortunately it does NOT work on Sheryl Crow. She probably was at the Spring 2005 fashion show saying “I want that dress”, and when she got it…blah.

She has the body no doubt, but something about it is just wrong….it is the model…? Is she too old to wear this dress…??? I just can’t put my finger on it, but those girls over at Go Fug Yourself believe that the dress belonged to a showgirl at the Tropicana in 1974.

Scarlett Johansson


Scarlett Johansson (or ScarJo as I like to call her) attended the Brit Awards in 2004 in this breath taking dress from the Spring 2004 collection. This is a traffic stopping dress and which only the gorgeous figure of ScarJo can pull off. Britney Spears tried and failed to own this dress the 2004 NRJ Awards.

Jennifer Garner


Jennifer Garner is wearing this silk Spring 2003 Cavalli gown with a matching nude coloured clutch.

Mischa Barton


This dress from the Spring 2004 collection on Mischa Barton does not wow me like the others, and her shoe choice is hideous. Barton has looked better.

Jessica Simpson


Jesscia Simpson looks cute in this Spring 2004 Cavalli dress. Her shoes are a better choice than on the model in my opinion.

Drew Barrymore


Drew looked amazing in this Spring 2007 halter neck dress for her “Music and Lyrics” Premiere in LA.

Pauline Rubio


Pauline Rubio has a great body. Very few could wear this dress well from the Spring 2007 dress.
Tyra Banks

I do not know who I am more disappointed with. Tyra for wearing this outfit from the Spring 2007 or Cavalli for making it. And in case you were wondering, she also was on the hitlist of those Go Fug Yourself girls.

2007 Grammy Girls

Beyonce Knowles


I love the dress on the model, not I am not loving the way Beyonce is wearing this Fall 2006 dress. I think it is mostly because when she performed in this dress you could see right through it. And also the flower in her hair is hideous.

Ciara


Ciara like many others wore a Roberto Cavalli dress from the Spring 2007 collection for the Grammy’s. I prefer this dress to Nelly’s below. My immediate reaction is that the dress is way to short, but on further inspection the back is longer than the front.

At least she has great legs to pull it off. This would not suit someone like Britney Spears.

Nelly Furtardo


Oh…would it be bad if I used my “I’m like a bird…” joke twice? OK I won’t use it.

I don’t like this dress, and whenever I don’t like a dress I look to the girls over at Go Fug Yourself to see if it is listed and, yep there she was.

This looks like someone got mad at Nelly and took scissors to the dress, she ran out of time to get a new dress and decided to go out in this dress anyway. This is a shame considering that Spring 2005 was one of Cavalli’s best collections.

Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham has picked Roberto Cavalli to be her personal fashion designer, in her determination to “stand out from the crowd”.

She gave the style guru an exclusive contract to dress her for every occasion, and Cavalli is taking his position very seriously.
