Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Alice Eve In Fendi - EE British Academy Film Awards Nominations Announcement

Alice Eve looks like butter wouldn’t melt, but she often makes some fashion-forward red carpet choices.

Earlier today the British actress was on hand to assist with the announcement of the 2013 British Academy Film Awards nominations, which was held at BAFTA HQ in London.

She’s gave us our first look at the Fendi Spring 2013 collection sporting an orange-and-black printed dress with a high neckline and solid blush back which she accented with a black grosgrain belt.

What I love most about her look are her Fendi sandals.

I have been mildly obsessed with the Fendi Spring 2013 shoe collection since they took to the runway back in September, as I loved the mix of colour-blocking and textures with the pyramid studs which decorated the heel.

This shoe collection was a first-time collaboration between London-based shoe designer Nicholas Kirkwood and Karl Lagerfeld.

We were all in shock, not in a good way, when we saw Cate Blanchett take to the red carpet at the 2012 Helpmann Awards, held in Sydney, Australia last month.

That’s because we found ourselves not liking her Fendi look.

Her LBD with balloon sleeves was styled with equally lacklustre all black accessories.

Zhang Ziyi wore the look a week later to the Dangerous Liasons’ press conference during the 17th Busan Film Festival in South Korea.

The actress totally transformed the look by taking styling inspiration from the runway, adding the peplum corseted belt, textured bolero and Fendi ‘Fendista’ pumps.

This is an easy win for Zhang.

Zhang Ziyi attended the Gala Presentation Press Conference for ‘Dangerous Liasons’ during the 17th Busan Film Festival at the Shinsegae Centumcity cultural hall on Friday in South Korea.

Still opting for edgier attire, the actress wore a Fendi Fall 2012 look.

This is the second Fendi look to have hit the red carpet within a week, but this look has a much better overall result.

I think it has a lot to do with the accessorizing.

The Asian beauty added a textured bolero and corseted belt with a peplum to take the LBD from bland to worthy of a second look.

A selection of gold bracelets, a chic updo and Fendi ‘Fendista’ black pumps completed her look.

You may remember that Cate Blanchett wore this same dress last week.

After a long absence from the red carpet, Cate Blanchett hit the red carpet at the 2012 Helpmann Awards in Sydney, Australia, last week.

The actress wore an LBD from the Fendi Fall 2012 collection.

Between the waxy-looking balloon sleeves and the suffocating neckline, I can’t say this is Cate’s finest hour.

A black leather clutch and black round-toe pumps completed this instantly forgettable look.

I just wish Cate would find her way back to Armani. It’s the place where she was at her happiest.

Back in July you crowned Bianca Balti best dressed of the week wearing a Fendi Resort 2013 look which she wore to officially open the ‘Bianca Balti: Scenes From A Fashion Fairy Tale’ exhibition at Mercati Di Traiano in Rome, Italy.

The look was a mash-up of a bi-colour yellow-and-navy blue dress with a colourful printed skirt, which she styled with Fendi ankle-strap pumps, barely there makeup and a simple ponytail.

Abigail Spencer wore part of the same look when she attended the Fendi Baguettemania event which celebrated 15 years of the baguette at Maxfield, LA, earlier this month.

The actress opted to brighten up the yellow-and-navy Fendi dress via a chic, colourful Fendi baguette, plus she added taupe pumps to her look.

I love the look both ways, but for that added touch of creativity I have to give this win to Bianca.

Jessica Biel’s promo tour for ‘Total Recall’ may have been frustratingly inconsistent, but there is one thing that has been constant: her love for Fendi bags.

It started at the Daily Show, where she carried the celebrity favourite: the Fendi ‘2Jours Elite’ leather shopper.

She overpowered her Elie Saab frock with a black velvet Fendi clutch with gold fringed accent at the Berlin premiere.

In Dublin she selected a more complementary gold beaded Fendi clutch and in London she not only carried a classic Fendi baguette, but she also styled her red carpet premiere look with a white patent Fendi clutch.

What do you think about Jessica’s sudden Fendi bag love?

A number of celebrities are adding a bit of structure to their summer looks, carrying Fendi’s ‘2Jours Elite’ leather shopper.

Sarah Jessica Parker kicked off the trend back in June when she was spotted shopping in New York City wearing a Comme des Garçons plaid skirt carrying the chic bag, specially monogrammed with ‘S.J.P.’ in gold.

Olivia Palermo showed off her ‘O.P.’ monogrammed version in a deep red colour at the ‘Intimissimi Fall/Winter 2013 Fashion Show’ in Italy, while Jessica Biel paired her classic black version with a bold animal-print dress for her appearance on ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’.

Most recently, a very pregnant Reese Witherspoon carried a gorgeous honey version of the bag while grabbing lunch with a friend in LA on Friday afternoon wearing a lovely Vanessa Bruno smocked dress.

With a perfect mix of style and function, it’s simple to see why this timeless design has become a quick celebrity staple.

We just need someone to carry the white one to have a full house.

You can buy their Fendi bag from Nordstrom.com in red, honey, black and milk.
