Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2011 Couture collection showed that the designer is still in love with bold shoulders.

I expected to see super sexy glamorous looks, which were bold and daring.

I wasn’t disappointed.

We saw plenty of plunging necklines, double thigh-high splits and floor-length dresses made of lurex which clung to the body.

I don’t recall Alexandre presenting prints before, but this collection had a few looks with bold graphic prints which were one of the few every day wearable looks from this collection along with a striking taupe satin jumpsuit.

The rest were for evenings out or working the red carpet like the gold fringe beaded Swarovski elements dress with the neckline plunging to the models navel, or the black figure-hugging dress with the sheer panels.

Key accessories: Jewelry by Emmanuel Aubry, Christian Louboutin heels, eyewear and clutches by Alexandre Vauthier

Favourites: Gold beaded dress and white jumpsuit with plunging neckline and gold belt

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Rihanna and Angelina Jolie

Some of you have express that you are over bold shoulders, well Alexandre Vauthier isn’t and neither am I.

The shoulders weren’t as voluminous as the pieces in the Spring 2010 Couture collection, but they were very well defined especially by the moon-shaped piece worn by one model.

If ‘Wonder Women’ wore Couture, she’d wear this collection.

It was full of strong powerful statement pieces, which were dynamic, strong, confident, sexy and feminine all at the same time, plus it has her trademark gold touches.

The collection was dominated by black and white looks, but we also got pops of purple.

My favourite piece was the first black and white sleeve dress worn with long black gloves. You’ve got to wiggle in this dress.

I also loved the big bear sleeves on the white coat.

The designer favourited by Rihanna and Monica presented many pieces with very daring necklines.

How low did he go? To the belly button.

Jessica Stam closed the show wearing a gold sequin dress with spikey shoulders.

The models stormed the runway in black and gold Christian Louboutin spiked heels.

Queen Latifah was the gracious host of the 2010 BET Awards, so she had several wardrobe changes.

One of her looks was a beautiful Edition by Georges Chakra Spring 2010 gown.

She looked stunning in her black crepe fitted gown with silver stone embellished shoulder details.

Monica shut it down wearing a black Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2010 Couture dress.

I know many of you are o.v.e.r bold shoulders, but I thinks this is one fierce look.

I love the pussy bow to add a touch of chic elegance.

Despite not being a fan of thigh-high boots, I think they work perfectly with her dress.

Keyshia Cole rocked the stage wearing a black sleeveless top with a tomato red Willow Fall 2010 asymmetric draped tulle skirt.

I knew we’d see Alex Curran at Aintree this weekend.

The WAG joined a host of other WAGs – including Coleen Rooney – at the Grand National on Saturday.

Alex who’s known for her love of Balmain surprised me by wearing an Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2009 Couture mini dress.

I was surprised because I assumed she was only aware of mainstream/popular/of the moment labels.

I must admit I do love her in this dress which shows off her amazingly long legs.

She could’ve easily over accesorized, but she kept her taupe Couture dress with batwing sleeves and bold shoulders simple.

The look was paired with matching platform heels and a matching studded clutch.

Looking good for a mother-of-two who’s not wearing spanx.

I think Camilla Belle’s Marchesa feathered confection was equally loved and hated.

But the love shone through to crown her Best Dressed this week.

If we were talking about the week she definitely deserved recognition for stepping out on the red carpet looking fab at each event.

This won’t be a popular choice as only 5% of you agreed, but I LOVED Rihanna in her Alexandre Vauthier jumpsuit.

Sexy, edgy, daring and on top of that she totally OWNED the look.

I dare anyone else to wear this jumpsuit with this much fabulousity.
