2010 Academy of Country Music Awards Red Carpet – Julianne Hough In Basil Soda Couture

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.

2010 Academy of Country Music Awards Red Carpet – Carrie Underwood In Basil Soda Couture

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.

Runway To Motown’s Grammy Nominee Party – Kelly Rowland In Basil Soda Couture & Brandy In Paule Ka

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.

Runway To Golden Globes After Party – Jennifer Carpenter In Basil Soda Couture

Jennifer Carpenter should’ve been on Golden Globes red carpet.

The beautiful actress looks stunning wearing this burgundy Basil Soda Fall 2009 Couture strapless gown to the Warner Bros. and InStyle Golden Globe After Party last night.

The gown has a pleated satin bodice embellished with jeweled details and a chiffon train.

Her look was paired with a Swarovski crystal Kiosque box clutch which complemented her gown.

Grey Goose Character & Cocktails Winter Fundraiser

There has been much speculation this weekend as to whether Kelly Rowland or Mel B will be replacing Dannii Mingoue as the next X Factor judge.

Kelly let her amazing Basil Soda Fall 2009 Couture gown do all the talking and it was saying “WOW”.

I don’t think I’ve seen her look this amazing since her Destiny’s Child days.

The colour is divine on her plus the cut flatters her figure and gives her curves.

First contender for BDOTW.

Model Natalie Suliman also wore a gown from the Basil Soda Fall 2009 Couture collection.

Her gorgeous green chiffon gown was dripping with embellish details which cascaded down her gown.

Anouck Lepere opted for a white Mark Fast scoop neck knit dress.

The drop-waist dress had heavy long fringing to give it a flapper feel which I love, but I just didn’t love the black patent pumps.

White dresses and black shoes have always been a no-no in my book.

Elizabeth Hurley wore a white fur gilet, which despite it’s size feels like it’s covering the whole of her gown.

Such a shame because this is a gorgeous colour on Liz.

I do like the print on Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s metallic dress, but the style of the dress feel so mumsy.

Frankie Sandford, Mollie King, Una Healy, Rochelle Wiseman and Vanessa White of the Saturdays look stunning in their mix of spring ready pastel floor length gowns, mini dresses and LBDs.

18th Annual BAFTA/LA Britannia Awards

Damn you Freida Pinto.

BDOTW is going to be hard enough.

The nude runway version of this Valentino Spring 2010 dress is beautiful, but the Indian beauty picked a black sheer version with a nude underlay which I absolutely adore.

Her look was paired with satin black heels and a Roger Vivier Canasta clutch.

I’m loving every thing about Emily Blunt’s Basil Soda Fall 2009 Couture maroon dress from the waist up.

Her patterned skirt doesn’t quite work for me.

Had it been one block colour, I think I would been drooling over this look.

This appears to be a less formal event, so I will concede that she did make a great choice despite my reservations about the skirt.

I love the wrap around beaded bodice as it’s so interesting and unique, plus I adore her silver sandals, but that crystallized ruby clutch is to die for.

I know a lot of you find Claire Danes very boring on the red carpet, but I find her quite calming on the red carpet.

As much as I like big dramatic gowns, with bling and vibrant colours, you never see Claire making huge mistakes on the red carpet.

She has a formula, and it appears she is sticking to it.

For me this Oscar de la Renta look is in a long line for simple flawless looks for Claire.

Amy Adams wears a simple navy Azzaro dress with a twist, as it has a ruched detail going down one side.

All in all, this is a fantastically well dressed event.

Kudos to all these ladies.
