Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Lake Bell was the first to wear this strapless Basil Soda Spring 2011 dress to the ‘No Strings Attached’ LA premiere last year.

She teamed her form-fitting dress with nude Brian Atwood ‘Zenith’ pumps and kept her hair simple with natural waves.

Christina Milian wore the same dress to Roc Nation’s annual pre-Grammy brunch at Soho House in West Hollywood, California, last weekend – exactly 13 months later.

The dress has more va-va-voom on Christina, but I don’t like the length, or her shoe choice which disappears into the carpet.

Lake wins for me.

French pop singer Shy’m attended the NRJ Awards in Cannes back in January, looking stunning in this black architectural Basil Soda gown.

She let the gown do most of the talking with the rest of the focus being on her towering hairdo.

Some bracelets or a cocktail ring would have been a welcome addition, but since she looks so glamorous I’m willing to let that part go.

Shy’m must know how amazing she looks since she is seriously working it on the red carpet. It’s hard to find fault with this.

Michelle Rodriguez surprised us all by stepping out in the same dress for her “Battle: Los Angeles” LA Premiere

Usually favouring a more casual look on the red carpet, this was a huge step up for the actress, but it certainly wasn’t perfect.

Her necklace is too fussy for a dress with an asymmetrical neckline. Even though her hair looks gorgeous, I would have loved to see it pulled back to really let her beauty (and the gown) shine.

Michelle gets points for stepping out of her comfort zone and trying something new but the details – including a basic black clutch – are just all wrong.

Shy’m on the other hand gets it right by directing most of the attention to the dress and her hair. She owns the look and knows it.

Shy’m wins for me.

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.
