Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Zooey Deschanel also attended the 2011 Critics’ Choice Television Awards which was held at the Beverly Hills Hotel in California yesterday.

The actress wore an Andrew Gn white short sleeve shift dress with black trims.

Since I started this blog in 2007 Zooey has always worn tights on the red carpet.

She is the only star I will give a pass to on tights, even during summer.

It’s her trademark and I’ve learnt to deal with it, plus she does look really cute here.

She recently said in a blog post, “I am a year round tights girl. I will wear tights even if it’s 100 degrees outside. Tights are my safety blanket.”

A Marni signature frame cotton crochet bag with yellow beads completed her look.

There is only one person I will give a pass to wearing tights on the red carpet at the 2011 Vanity Fair Oscar Party and that’s Zooey Deschanel.

The actress has made tights her staple and she be dammed before she listens to my grips about them.

She wouldn’t have got a pass had she wore black pumps, so thankfully she opted for a red satin Brian Atwood ‘Maniac’ pumps.

I loved the pop of red against her black Valentino Spring 2011 black long sleeve chiffon dress with lace rafia skirt.

I like the red accessories against the black dress in preference to the red dresses which were paired with black accessories on Sunday night.

Zooey was quirky and delightful as always.

Zooey Deschanel attended the premiere of “My Idiot Brother” this weekend during the 2011 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

As a fan of all things kooky and cute, Zooey wore a Marc Jacobs Resort 2011 purple dress.

Her silk short sleeve dress with v-front, pleated bodice and tiered skirt has been modified from the dress presented.

Anna Kendrick also wore a cap sleeved version of this dress last year.

Zooey wouldn’t be Zooey without a pair of tights to complete her look. On this occasion she opted for navy.

Her look was completed with a half up, half down hair do, and H&M Spring 2011 two-tone heels with a gold heel which I saw at the H&M Spring 2011 press day.

The fact that Diane Kruger doesn’t use a stylist I think this makes us appreciate what she wears even more.

The beautiful actress kept her look simple, oozing effortless chic wearing a Fendi tuxedo jumpsuit with cut outs in the shoulders.

The jumpsuit has a tailored waist that sits above gentle pleats.

Sparkling Armani Privé bow accented heels and a black clutch complete the look.

Twilight actress Nikki Reed wore a sparkling Nanette Lepore gold sequin dress, but make it look less Christmasy by adding a black blazer to her look.

Fierce Jimmy Choo sandals and a gold studded black clutch complete her look.

Normally I always love what Zooey Deschanel wears because of her unique retro style which has so much personality.

But on this occasion the skirt on her Karen Walker dress is so short that you can see a glimpse of the rubber band part of her tights which isn’t very flattering.

The dress is very cute though.

Hilary Swank continues to give red carpet master classes, this time wearing a Monique Lhuillier Fall 2009 black gown.

The cut-out details some how make the actress look even more slender and taller, and the embellish details prevent this from being a boring black gown.

Oscar buzz will guarantee you one thing – an endless supply of stunning dresses to wear on the red carpet – and that’s exactly what Carey Mulligan has been wearing lately.

The style-icon-in-the-making wore a Prabal Gurung Spring 2010 black beaded chiffon strapless dress with shirttail hem and silk faille bowtie to cinched in her waist.

She teamed her dress with tortoise-shell heels and a chunky gold bracelet.

I’m loving the quiff.

Zooey Deschanel is probably the only person who I feel dresses up with tights, rather than covers up with tights.

We often see her in various colours of tights, but on this occasion she opted for black to match the black trims on her cute Luella Spring 2010 dress.

Her look was paired with Martin Lewis for Luella bow accented heels and a black Chanel bag.

Like the runway model Zooey wears a black bow in her hair, but she opted to wears hers at the back.

There were a lot of black dresses at this event, but Kate Beckinsale’s Michael Kors Resort 2010 dress was made interesting with the asymmetrical neckline and the draped detail on the skirt.

Long gold earrings and a chunky cuff complete the sophisticated look.

Despite Diane Kruger being one of the few not to wear black at this event, I wasn’t crazy about her look.

She kept her look light and feminine wearing a Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2010 white silk dress with a rise and fall hem, but unfortunately the nude heels really let her down.

I loved how this gown billowed on the runway, and although that drama is lost on the red carpet Diane still tried to make it work.

I also preferred how the dress sits above the knee on the model, the length feels a bit awkward on Diane.

Julianne Moore is not afraid of colour, as she wore a beautiful coral dress with voluminous sleeves.

I adore the colour on her.  She can be so breath-taking at times without much effort.

The actress paired her dress with Chanel ankle strap heels, and a black Bottega Veneta Impero satin clutch.

Michelle Monaghan looked stunning in a black strapless dress with a floral embroidered detail on the bodice.

She glows as brightly as her Martin Katz jewels.

Dare I say this, but I’m bored.

Charlize Theron normally blows me away each time she hits the red carpet, but I can only get excited about her red Louboutin’s with a gold toe cap and Bottega Veneta clutch.

Her The Row ensemble is very meh!!!

AnnaLynne McCord provided the sultry glamour I was expecting from Charlize, by posing seductively in a one-shouldered black gown.

Taraji P. Henson is wearing a really nice Rachel Roy dress, but it somehow feels out of place at this event.

I’m also not loving the hair extensions. She worked the shorter style really well.

What’s most tragic is the make-up. Why does she have a layer of white powder under her eyes?
