Red Carpet Fashion Awards

'Best Man' New York Premiere

Sanaa Lathan and Nia Long both took to the red carpet at last night’s ‘The Best Man Holiday’ screening in New York City.

Sanaa Lathan: The actress chose a teal-hued Amanda Wakeley number for the occasion, letting the geometric cutouts along the neckline and visible darting down the bodice do all the figure-flattering work. She accessorized with black peep-toe Brian Atwood pumps, Brumani jewels, and an Inge Christopher clutch; then finished with Farrah Fawcett-esque hair and berry lips.

Nia Long: Opting for a similar body-con silhouette, Nia selected a long-sleeved Cushnie Et Ochs LWD. To complement the crisp, sexy look, she wore embellished Saint Laurent heels, a Giuseppe Zanotti clutch, loose waves, and a purple-red lip colour.

Nicole Scherzinger In Amanda Wakeley - 2013 Pride of Britain Awards

Nicole Scherzinger attended the Pride of Britain Awards held at Grosvenor House in London yesterday evening.

Looking gorgeous, the singer proves to me once again that she has moved forward in leaps and bounds when it comes to her style.

She looked elegant and sexy wearing an Amanda Wakeley Fall 2013 strapless grey velvet gown with a sheer chiffon panel that I’m surprised isn’t a risqué slit.

Opting for wavy side-swept locks, she completed her look with smouldering smoky eyes, nude glossy lips and dangling earrings.

Should Nicole be put on the ‘Much Improved of 2013′ list, or is it still too early to tell?

Gina Carano's 'Fast & Furious 6' Promo Tour

The ‘Fast & Furious 6’ had its final stop on its world tour yesterday evening in Universal City, California. One of the main stars, Gina Carano, had three great looks during the tour.

London Premiere: Earlier this month, Gina was in London, saluting our fine city wearing a look from the Vivienne Westwood Couture collection which was custom made for the actress. The signature gunmetal-blue sequin gown was styled with an ombre top knot and palladium jewels.

Manila Premiere: The second stop was the Philippines, where Gina wore a Tom Ford bias-cut black gown with a high-low hemline styled with black-and-gold Givenchy sandals, an Amanda Pearl clutch and Melinda Maria earrings.

LA Premiere: Going out with a bang, Gina’s gorgeous curves were showcased wearing a white Amanda Wakeley plunging gown with gunmetal beaded embellishments and a high-low hem with a layered train. With the risen hemline we were able to take a gander at her gunmetal Rupert Sanderson sandals, which perfectly complemented the beaded details on her gown, as did her Christian Louboutin silver fishnet clutch and Dana Rebecca Designs and palladium jewels.

The Burberry is a simple yet elegant gown. The Westwood is nothing we haven’t seen before, even though I love the look, so my favourite here is the Amanda Wakeley. It’s the most unique of the three, it’s soft and feminine with an edge, plus it has reignited my love for embellishments.

British Academy Television Awards 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the looks from the British Academy Television Awards 2013 held at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Sunday.

Millie Mackintosh: Opting to steal the limelight from the celebs at this event, the reality TV star wore a daring Sass & Bide Fall 2013 strapless gown with a plunging sweetheart neckline, gold-plated accent, keyhole cut-out and thigh-high slit. Gold cuffs, a Swarovski clutch and black strappy heels completed her look. If stealing the limelight was her intention, I would say this was mission accomplished.

Holly Willoughby: I love Holly’s red Valentino one-shoulder gown; however, her black platform heels are a huge letdown. They are so clunky and heavy in comparison to the rest of her look. She can do – and has done – much better.

Jessica Hynes: This Vivienne Westwood gown was one of my favourites on the night. The black silk gown, with a ruched pale-pink chiffon-trimmed neckline, draped detail at the back and draped over-the-shoulder detail, gives her a beautiful silhouette. Allowing the gown to shine by just adding nude pumps was the perfect way to style this look.
