Red Carpet Fashion Awards

I found myself very surprised by Michelle Rodriguez on the red carpet at the “Battle: Los Angeles” LA Premiere.

I was surprised because I didn’t hate the look.

Usually I dislike anything she wears mostly because she doesn’t have the grace to pull off most gowns or she pairs a leather jacket with everything.

On this occasion I feel like she really made an effort wearing a black Basil Soda gown despite wanting to take a pair of scissors to chop off that oversized padded shoulder.

Apart from the shoulder this look would’ve been more effective had she ditched the necklace.

I’ve never been a fan of necklaces with an asymmetrical neckline.

Best Mini Dress Award
Keri Hilson always knows what’s required to look fabulous at these events.

At the 2011 Grammy Awards last night she wore a futuristic Basil Soda Fall 2010 Couture dress.

The blue mini dress has the gold zipper details which were the signature of this collection.

I prefer her shorten dress to the runway length.

Keri completed her look with metallic gold strappy sandals.

Lake Bell co-stars with Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman in “No Strings Attached.”

The beautiful actress opted for something different and less predictable on the red carpet at the LA Premiere last night.

Her sculptured Basil Soda Spring 2011 dress gives her an amazing silhouette.

I love the colours and print of her refreshing look, but I do wish she had pulled her hair back.

Nude Brian Atwood ‘Zenith’ pumps completed her look.

Lake was my favourite at this event.

Basil Soda’s Fall 2010 presentation was a rich collection of draped bustier cocktail dresses and gowns which were inspired by the Phoenicians.

Some looks were decorated with either gold leaf embroidery, but it was those decorated with zippers which stood out.

Dresses and gowns got the zipper treatment helping to add a touch of modernity to this collection.

We also saw these touches on the models ankle boots and structured vests which were paired with cigarette pants.

The designer favoured mostly neutral colours with the addition of black, fuschia pink and ocean blue.

The gowns, which will have celebrity fan Emily Blunt going weak at the knees, had a structured yet feminine silhouette.

I can see the cocktail dresses being worn by the likes of Carrie Underwood and Julianne Hough, who seem to be preferring shorter hemlines for their red carpet appearances.

The bride was as elegant as you would expect with touches of silver crystals on the bodice and exaggerated hips.

Worst Couture Award
Like Carrie Underwood, Julianne Hough also wore Basil Soda to the 2010 Academy of Country Music Awards which was held last night in Nevada.

The TV star opted for a Basil Soda Spring 2009 Couture white gown, with a silver folded detail on the bodice.

The gown itself is too bridal for my liking and that silver detail is quite ugly and extremely distracting.

Had it been part of the gown rather than attached to the gown it would have looked better.

Best Couture Award
Two things are guaranteed at a Country Music event.

1. Carrie Underwood will attend.
2. Carrie Underwood will wear a Lebanese designer.

The Country singer who is up for many awards at the 2010 Academy of Country Music Awards tonight, looked stunning as she walked the red carpet.

I adore her buttercup Basil Soda Spring 2010 Couture cocktail dress.

I love the contrast between the top and the bottom half.

The top has sleek satin layers which is held together with an embellished strap to create a ruffled effect on her shoulder.

The skirt has a swirling pattern all over as it drapes from the waist.

Her look was paired with moss green Rene Caovilla ankle strap heels and a black studded Swarovski clutch.

Carrie would have got a 10 out of 10 for this look had it not been for the clutch.

I really dislike it because it doesn’t work with the rest of her look.

R&B stars Kelly Rowland and Brandy put on their best glad rags to attend the Motown Grammy after-party held at the W hotel in Los Angeles hotel this week.

Kelly’s attendance may confirm that she’s signed her new record deal with Motown.

Kelly sported a very very bad wig, but I do like her Basil Soda Spring 2009 Couture dress.

The plunging jewel encrusted dress had a satin tiered skirt.  The singer complemented the dress with nude heels and a matching clutch.

Brandy opted for something with a bit of sass and sex appeal.

She wore a Paule Ka bustier dress from the Spring 2010 black carpet collection.

The dress with a white draped skirt and a charcoal sash tied to the waist, was paired with an interesting pair of black strappy sandals.

If this was a who looked better? contest, Brandy would win.
