Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Lana Del Ray did not skimp on the dramatics when it came to her look at the 2012 Met Gala, held in New York City this evening.

The singer, debuting a darker ‘do, attended the event on the arm of designer Joseph Altuzarra, wearing a custom black-and-silver hand-embroidered gown.

The strapless dress was paired with a custom black silk georgette cape.

Side-parted glossy waves and deep plum lips complete the look.

If you placed this photo of Lana next to a picture of Gwyneth Paltrow and her white cape at this year’s Oscars, you’d have the perfect ‘Good Witch/Bad Witch,’ no?

Kerry Washington was in North Hollywood, California, yesterday evening for The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Presents ‘Welcome To ShondaLand: An Evening With Shonda Rhimes & Friends’ at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre.

The actress donned an Altuzarra Spring 2012 dress.

Her black dress with a drill skirt with a padded v-neck was accessorized with white Reed Krakoff pumps, to complement the white panels on her skirt, and a gunmetal-grey clutch.

Soft waves, kohl-rimmed eyes and a pink lip colour completed her look.

I honestly would’ve preferred black pumps to white with this look, even though both put a cold shiver down my spine.

Which version of this dress do you prefer? The white runway dress with the tropical print panels or red carpet black dress with white panels?

You can buy the runway version of Kerry’s Altuzarra from Browns Fashion.

Cheryl Cole and her stylist were finally reunited on the set of her new music video ‘Call My Name’, which was shot in LA this weekend.

Let’s face it: left to her own devices, Cheryl isn’t very good at styling herself…remember her first day on the job on ‘The X Factor USA’?

Sorry for putting that picture back in your mental rolodex, but I was trying to illustrate my point.

The former ‘X Factor’ judge sent temperatures soaring on set wearing an Altuzarra Spring 2012 blazer with a bold tropical print.

Her sharply tailored blazer was teamed with some sexy leopard-print Dolce & Gabbana hot pants, a floral-print bustier and tri-colour Brian Atwood ‘Alima’ neon patent-leather peep-toes.

She has finally ditched the awful blonde locks and returned to her more natural brunette hair colour.

I hate to admit it, but I’m looking forward to her comeback.

You can buy Cheryl’s Altuzarra blazer from Net-A-Porter.com.
Her Dolce & Gabbana bikini bottoms are available from Net-A-Porter.com.
You can also shop her Brian Atwood ‘Alima’ tri-colour peep-toes from Net-A-Porter.com.

Showing off her new brunette ‘do, Jennifer Lawrence arrived at the Ed Sullivan Theatre in New York City yesterday to appear on the “Late Show With David Letterman.”

This new colour is for her next role in “The Hunger Games.”

The “Winter’s Bone” actress is barely recognisable. I think I prefer her as a blonde.

Jennifer wore a navy Altuzarra Spring 2011 dress with an asymmetrical skirt and an orange belt.

She wore her dress with YSL ‘New Riveg’ platforms. I much prefer the runway heels.

The black heels doesn’t work for me when the navy and orange are so complementary.

Ha Ji Won has great style.

We loved her some much in Roberto Cavalli earlier this year that she was our Best Dressed Of The Week.

The actress who is the brand ambassador of Olay attended an event for the brand in Seoul this week.

She wore an Altuzarra Fall 2010 dress which had lace up details on the skirt, shoulders and on the model we also see a significant plunging neckline.

Ha Ji Won waters down this dress greatly by modifying the dress to be less revealing.

By doing that she takes away the very essence of the dress, reverting it to a plain LBD.

She did wear some great heels with her dress, but not liking her version of this dress.

Joseph Altuzarra is only in his second season but stars like Paula Patton and Kim Kardashian are putting his label firmly on the map.

I just LOVE how Kim’s curves fill every inch of this white Altuzarra Fall 2009 dress, making it almost look like a totally different dress from the runway.

I would sooner buy it after seeing it on her, than the runway model.

The sexy star pairs her winter white dress with nude Brian Atwood pumps and a snake skin print clutch.

Thank god she’s back to her natural hair colour.

Sophia Bush along with Kim puts herself in contention for BDOTW.

As I said last week Sophia is back, and this sexy lace turtleneck Max Azria Fall 2009 mini dress shows how.

She looks sexy, a bit edgy, yet still the sophisticated Sophia we all know and love.

Cheryl Burke opted to modify her Gustavo Cadile Fall 2009 mini dress into a strapless dress.

I think this maroon dress with the embellished ribbon benefits from the modification, as Cheryl is simply glowing.

Now this is how I like to see Lauren Conrad.

Wearing something young, fun and COLOURFUL.

Her Mara Hoffman Spring 2010 floral print dress deserved some better shoes, but I will just have to live with the fact that Hollywood loves black pumps.

This look is also one of my favourites from this event.

Hayden Panettiere wore a lavender mini Dennis Basso Spring 2010 dress with draped hips. I love the shape and her taupe accessories which include Bally peep toes, Lauren Merkin “Eve” clutch in glitter python.

Katie Cassidy knows how to look sexy without looking trashy.

My mini Charlize Theron looked stunning wearing a poufy sleeved mini dress which revealed her sexy back, and her winged tattoo.

I love the dress, the shoes and the clutch, but I’m not so crazy about the hair.

It may not be as colourful as I would like, but Selena Gomez looks stunning wearing this Notte by Marchesa off shoulder stretch crepe dress with ruffle sleeves.

It’s a grown up look, but not a boring look for the young actress.

With their trademark platium blonde ‘do’s Kelly Osbourne and DJ Luke Worrall couldn’t keep their eyes off each other as they walked the red carpet.

She wore a black and white ensemble with a jeweled neckline, paired with metallic silver Trib Two’s and orange nail polish.

It’s the child I feel sorry for. Pamela Anderson should know better.

What the fudge is she wearing?  Any why are their safety pins holding her dress together?  Like this look wasn’t tragic enough.
