Red Carpet Fashion Awards


I know some of you don’t like get Tilda Swinton, but I love her. What I don’t love however, is this look.

The only reason this Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 Couture gown worked on the runway, was because of the accessories, so not for the first time this year, I will have so say that I really don’t like this look on Tilda.

The gown itself is gorgeous with the colours and the embellished sleeves, but Tilda fails to make this work.


Diane Kruger, on the other hand, impresses in her Valentino Spring 2009 gown. In fact she looks absolutely outstanding.

The mustard gown has been lengthen – for the better – from the runway, but has retained the draping on the skirt, and the embellishments on the sheer bodice.

She completed the look with a small gold clutch, her hair styled in a loose up ‘do, and flawless make-up.

Regular readers will understand how frustrated I always get when Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes hit the red carpet. That is because they never have a second apart, so she is never photographed alone.

The couple attended the Brazilian premiere of Valkyrie yesterday.

He was in a navy striped suit, she was wearing a long green Christian Lacroix Haute Couture Fall 2007 tunic, with shimmering silver pearling, a vivid red bustier, and electric blue velvet sash tied to the waist.

I love the dress. It was a great choice, but Katie barely brings it to life.

The dress is so vivacious, charismatic and full of life, but on Katie…it’s just OK. And just OK on a couture gown, which probably took 400 hours or more to create, just won’t do.

Even the sash is limp. Couldn’t she have found someone to tie it into a pretty bow for her?

I also think it’s cut too low for her, as it exposes how thin she has become.

The red lips, and the hair I love from the front, but not crazy about the bun at the back.

This dress is being called a vintage dress. I love vintage clothes from the 50s, 60s an 70s, but to me this is 4 seasons old.

I’m not a vintage aficionado, so if any of you can let me know how old a garment has to be to be classed as vintage, I would very much appreciate it, as I was under the impression it was 10/20 years.

Yesterday my second show was the Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 Haute Couture show.

The collection, as expected, was very colourful and beautiful, mixing ultra feminine and romantic looks, with a touch chic of masculine tailoring.

The colours were vibrant, tropical for some pieces, and there were also prints, stripes and heavy embellishments.

The show opened with military inspired looks, then a series of tailored suits, followed by dresses with boleros, puffy skirts, flamenco-style dresses, and then the gowns. Each one more spectacular than the next.

My favourites were the pink ombre one above, which would look great on someone like Penelope Cruz, who has been lacking for me lately. The gold dress is of course reserved. in my eye. for Cate Blanchett. Only she could wear that sculptured dress so elegantly.


The hair was pulled up top, with a single braid. The accessories were big.

Big jeweled earrings, big plastic bangles, and earrings worn as bangles. These are fine details, but they made a big impact.

French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld was in the front row looking gorgeous wearing a tan trench coat, which almost looked like a chic dress.


I had a 1000 watt blub pointing in my direction, but I was able to get a few great pictures from the show.

I need a faster reaction camera.
