Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Jayma Mays also attended the “Emmy Week Kick-Off Party” hosted by Audi and Chopard last night.

The ‘Glee’ actress shimmered in a silvery lame Christian Cota Spring 2010 one-shoulder dress.

The first thing I said when I saw Jayma was, “Thank God she shortened her dress”.

If she’d kept the length she would’ve looked quite matronly and not as fun and sassy.

She added metallic silver accessories to her look which included Brian Atwood ‘Wagner’ peep toes, and a Salvatore Ferragamo box clutch.

As it was a Chopard event Jayma dazzled in their jewels.

Head-to-toe I love this look.

Singer/Songwriter Taylor Swift spent 13 hours signing autographs for fans and playing several songs with her band during The CMA Music Festival this weekend.

The star looked cute wearing an enchanted garden floral print Christian Cota Spring 2010 dress which is so typically Taylor.

It’s the perfect summer dress.

Taylor knows that her fan base is mostly young girls, and I love that she continues to set a good example for them.

Tina Fey stars in “Date Night” with her co-star Steve Carell who also walked the red carpet at the New York premiere last night.

I was surprised to see Tina wearing a Christian Cota Fall 2010 dress.

The surprise was because Christian is still very much a young up-and-coming designer, I wouldn’t have thought he was on Tina’s radar.

Tina didn’t pick one of the edgier graphic pieces, instead she look fabulous wearing a black jersey dress with blue hand painted organza detail going down one side of the dress.

I love the look. It’s chic sophisticated without looking too young nor too old.

Everything balances out nicely.

Her look was paired with Givenchy shoes.

Best Dressed Award
Selena Gomez brought out the sun on the orange carpet at the 2010 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards yesterday.

She was my Best Dressed of the night wearing a yellow Christian Cota chiffon dress with gold beaded belt detail from the designers red carpet capsule collection.

I’ve been campaigning long and hard for Selena to wear something more youthful and this dress was the perfect choice for the teen actress.

It’s not a gown, it colourful, youthful and most importantly age appropriate. I’m glad she’s back to having fun with fashion again.

Her look was paired with Sergio Rossi Girandola Bis gladiator sandals, a Lauren Merkin oval gold clutch and Ippolita jewels.

We don’t see much of Maggie Grace on the red carpet these days, but the “Lost” actress still knows how to put her best foot forward on the red carpet.

Maggie wore a Christian Cota Fall 2009 dress to the ‘Flying Lessons’ premiere during opening night of the 2010 Santa Barbara International Film Festival recently.

Her navy strapless mini dress is adorable with the sweetheart neckline and silver details.

Her look was paired with a Arianne Tunney navy clutch and nude Christian Louboutin peep-toes.

Had she styled her hair better, I would’ve been in love with this look.

Christian Cota’s Fall 2010 presentation was inspired by Cubism.

He took organic forms disassembled them and puzzled them back together angle by angle.

This would explain the strong shapes and asymmetrical details on many of the pieces which gave them a futuristic feel.

Some of my favourite pieces were the ones with graphic prints and brush strokes, as well as the shimmering metallic looks.

Christian dresses many celebrities on the red carpet in his short and sassy numbers, and this time he added some floor-length numbers into the mix.

The legwear was by Hue and the shoes were by Aldo.

Anna Wintour was at the presentation for approximately 4 minutes.

I wonder if she was flattered by the Anna-esqe wigs the models were wearing.

Maybe not since they were grey.

Melissa George also in attendance and she was particularly taken by the silver laminated lace drape gown, which was open at the back.

I was fascinated by how Melissa tried to make eye contact with Anna.

Contact was not made.

Best Dressed Award
I’m not going to waste anytime harping on about how much I dislike Jessica Alba, because when it comes to the red carpet for me it’s all about the dress.

And WOW what a dress.

The Antonio Berardi Spring 2010 collection was dubbed as the Megan Fox collection due to all the overtly sexy mini dresses on display, but it was a yummy mummy who did it justice.

Jessica gave Fergie and Cameron Diaz a run for their money in the most enviable legs department in this silver mini dress with a peplum at the waist.

She could have killed this look with a boring pair of heels, but I’m in total lust with her Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010 platforms.

Hair, make-up, dress, heels are all totally perfect.

10 out of 10.

Best Clutch Award
One of my Girl Crushes of 2009 Katie Cassidy started the year in perfect style walking the red carpet looking sensational wearing a Talbot Runhof Spring 2010 mini dress.

The short sleeve mother of pearl iridescent cocktail dress has a draped detail at waist and foiled accents at the hem and on one shoulder.

Sporting an Alexander Wang-style messy plait, she completed her look with a gorgeous Judith Leiber package clutch, and champagne satin heels.

“Don’t Stop Believing” Glee Award
Just when I’d given up all hope of ever seeing the Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 collection on the red carpet, Ginnifer Goodwin delighted me by wearing this cute sassy striped number from said collection.

The shoes are a bit plain, but I love the rosette detail on the shoulder and skirt.

I’m glad she didn’t over accesorize this look.

Back To Her Best Award
After a few question moments in both the wardrobe and make-up department, Taraji P. Henson is back to her best in this stunning lilac Alberta Ferretti Pre-Fall 2009 one-shoulder gown.

I love EVERYTHING about this look, especially the make-up which complement her gown.

Best Shoes Award
I’m normally all about the dresses, but I was drooling over Carrie Underwood’s Rock & Republic black strappy heels.

It looks like Carrie has finally said ‘goodbye’ to blingy dresses, because wore a stunning nude Christian Cota Spring 2010 dress with a black cage embroidered overlay.

She’s appears to have also said ‘goodbye’ to the 200lbs of weave she used to sport, opting for a this shorter sleek style which really suits her.

Johnathon Arndt jewels and a Lauren Merkin clutch complete this look.

Best Dressed Teen Award
Whilst I was less than enthused with Teen singer Demi Lovato, I was very impressed with Taylor Swift.

She also wore a Jenny Packham Resort 2010 dress, but she didn’t over accessorize her look.

Simple earrings, a matching bracelet and silver peep-toes complemented her strapless dress which was embellished with crystals.

I Hope She’s Warming Up Award
Diane Kruger looked beautiful on the red carpet wearing a white Herve Leger mini dress with Emilio Pucci cut-out studded sandals and a Bottega Veneta clutch, but I wasn’t blown away.

I’m hoping she’s warming up by starting off slow before she knocks us out at the bigger events.

Best Embellishments Award
Kate Walsh always looks like she’s having fun on the red carpet and this occasion is no different.

The actress looked gorg wearing a vintage 1960s Sarmi sequined dress from Decades Inc with Casadei heels.

Best Hair Award
Sandra Bullock looked amazing wearing a very distinctive gold brocade Vivienne Westwood bustier dress which she paired with nude Brian Atwood “Maniac” Pumps which is are celebs favourite heels.

I’m loving that mahogany colour of her poker straight hair.

Love The Dress Hate The Hair Award
I LOVED Hayley Williams dress.

At first I was convinced it was from Luella as it has the playful girly feel to it, but I unfortunately was wrong.

The voluminous skirt and pretty bows make this dress so beautiful and unique, but I just don’t love her hair.

If she’d had jet black hair, I would have loved the overall look more.

Classic Elegance Award
Whilst most opted for mini cocktail dresses Kathryn Morris glided down the red carpet wearing a Pamella Roland midnight blue satin asymmetrical off the shoulder gown which I simply adore.

I so prefer this colour to black.

Most Improved Award
I wouldn’t normally pay much attention to Niecy Nash on the red carpet but she blew me away in this stunning pink Tadashi Shoji jersey draped one shoulder gown.

One of her finest red carpet moments.

Best LBD Award
Alyson Hannigan’s LBD is super simple, but her Rene Caovilla satin rose accented heels make the overall look interesting plus she’s so damn gorgeous what’s not to love?

Baby Steps Award
I know some of you are still not ready believe Mariah Carey has turned a corner style-wise, but I think she continues to take baby steps in the right direction.

Her Ysa Makino white beaded halter gown with sweetheart neckline is another perfect choice for her.

On The Fence Award
Hmmm…I’m very much on the fence when it comes to Lisa Edelstein’s David Meister gown.

I love the embellished neckline, but I think there’s too much skirt in her skirt.
