Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Rosario Dawson also wore a gorgeous gown to the Raisa Gorbachev Foundation’s annual party which was held at Stud House, Hampton Court in London last night.

The actress who has been in town for London Fashion Week arrived wearing an Alessandra Rich lace and pleated jersey-twill gown from the Fall 2011 collection.

Her gown is stunning.  I love that she’s working that thigh-high pleated split.

It’s been a while since I was this floored by Rosario.

The only thing that lets her down are her red suede Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodil’ pumps, despite them being on-trend.

I love the unexpected pop of red which matches her lip colour, but did they really need to be so heavy for such a light and pretty gown?

Evan Rachel Wood put her best foot forward on the red carpet tonight for the “Mildred Pierce” Venice Film Festival Premiere.

The actress wears her second Alessandra Rich Fall 2011 gown during this film festival.

I love how she gave this classic Alessandra Rich stretch silk-blend column gown with a nude and black lace body a 60s spin with her hair and make-up.

It’s a gorgeous look which she’s working so well, but I wish the skirt was a tad longer.

The dress needed the belt and I would’ve preferred strappy sandals to prevent this from feeling like a ‘photocall’ look.

Ferragamo clutch completed her look.

Evan Rachel Wood opted for something more experimental on the red carpet for “The Ides Of March” Premiere during the 2011 Venice Film Festival this evening.

She wore an Alessandra Rich Fall 2011 shantung shirt dress.

Unfortunately the white dress doesn’t quite work for me.

I really want to love it, but I’m just not getting there.

I love the striped lace top half and the belt which nicely cinches in the waist.

I’m not crazy about the Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, but I don’t hate them so that only leaves the hair.

Whilst it worked on her earlier Dolce & Gabbana look, I find it aging here.

My immediate thought when I saw Evan was Julie Andrews.

Diane Kruger brought a little known label into the spotlight this week wearing an Alessandra Rich dress to the ‘Liaisons Au Louvre II’ Charity Gala Dinner in Paris.

She was your clear favourite, as you admired her ability to pull off such a difficult look with such ease and with plenty of style and charisma.

Rose Byrne was my favourite this week.

She is so incredibly stylish and effortless with it.

This was proven when she wore a red hot Christian Cota dress to the “Bridesmaids” Australian Premiere this week.

Many of you liked Rose’s look, but couldn’t get pass her shoe choice. I’m just grateful that they weren’t yet another pair of pumps.

Diane Kruger looked absolutely beautiful at the ‘Liaisons Au Louvre II’ Charity Gala Dinner in Paris last night.

The German actress wore an Alessandra Rich belted gown from the Spring 2011 collection.

After Natalie Massent wore a dress from this collection back in March, I had hoped to see more celebrities wearing this collection.

So I was very excited to see someone as stylish as Diane wearing this off-white gown with a double-layered fluorescent-green and white sheer Chantilly lace bodice.

I’m glad that she opted to keep the designer-stamped coral neoprene belt, as it adds a lot to the overall look.

With flawless make-up, loose waves and pink glossy lips, I definitely think this is BDOTW worthy look.

I know I say this for about every Diane look, but she’s always perfection personified.

You may not be familiar with Alessandra Rich, but the fashion industry has taken notice.

Case in point Natalie Massent, Chairman and Founder of Net-A-Porter.com wore an Alessandra Rich dégradé lace-covered cotton and silk-blend gown to the ‘Runway to Green’ event in New York City last night.

Heralded as one of fashion’s future leaders, Alessandra Rich and her namesake collection are generating an insider buzz that will no doubt find her placed prominently on a red carpet soon.

Alessandra Rich founded her label in 2009 following a career as a high-end interior designer.

Having worked in her native Italy; France and London – where the label is currently based – this young designer no doubt tapped into her obvious penchant for the luxurious while creating her designs.

Lace and silk are the prominent fabric choices with pops of fluorescent and neoprene detailing adding a modern twist.

The Alessandra Rich aesthetic is filled with allusions to femininity; a new femininity to bring confidence of the look the Rich woman wants to portray, whilst doing it with grace and charm in a timeless silhouette that couples edgy sophistication.

The Alessandra Rich Spring 2011 collection is currently available on Net-A-Porter US and Net-A-Porter International.

Celebs I See Wearing This Collection: Kiera Knightley, Carrie Mulligan, Angelina Jolie, Tilda Swinton, Annete Benning and Helen Mirren
