Red Carpet Fashion Awards

2013Grammys_KellyRowland

Fresh off her Super Bowl XLVII performance last week, Kelly Rowland dialed up the wow factor again at the 2013 Grammy Awards, hosted at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Sunday night.

One of the evening’s presenters, she pushed the Grammys envelope with her Georges Chakra black gown from the Spring 2013 Couture collection.

The songstress had fun with geometry in this provocative dress that featured strategically placed, razor-sharp cutouts and a flurry of tulle at the bottom.

Kelly was definitely playing a fierce fashion game with this revealing statement

The runway version was altered by the addition of another black panel at the bodice to make this look ever-so-slightly more conservative.

Huge emerald rings and bold matching earrings from Lorraine Schwartz, along with a sleek low updo and blunt bang, completed the look.

Zhang Ziyi In Georges Chakra Couture  - ‘The Grandmasters’ Beijing Press Conference

Zhang Ziyi continues to leave me in awe of her red carpet choices.

On Sunday she attended two press conferences held at the Marriott Hotel in Beijing, China for her latest project ‘The Grandmasters’ sporting two very different looks.

Starting with my favourite: she donned a super-chic Georges Chakra Fall 2012 Couture black-and-white look with a PVC dress and flowing cape.

This look is so edgy, sexy and modern that I can totally forgive those clunky Giuseppe Zanotti triple-stacked platform peep-toes. Read more…

The 2012 American Country Awards took place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday evening.

Usually there are a few stand outs from these country music events, but last night they were all equally meh.

Where is Taylor Swift when you need her?

Carrie Underwood: I do like Carrie’s peach lace Georges Chakra Couture bubble dress with lines of pearls, but the B Brian Atwood ‘Cassiane’ fringe sandals and same old, same old hairstyle kill this look for me.

LeAnn Rimes: The singer kept it simple, wearing a black Dolce & Gabbana ruched stretch-crepe dress with a scooped neckline. Her snakeskin Tom Ford pumps keep things interesting, but her white Tom Ford clutch is quite the head scratcher.

Kristin Chenoweth: The actress/singer was my favourite at this event – I’m sure I don’t need to explain why – wearing a Rafael Cennamo electric-blue gown. The vibrant bustier gown with corset detailing was styled with blue-toned Martin Katz jewels.

Miranda Lambert: Usually one for wearing gowns at country music events, Miranda opted for a high-neck Reem Acra Fall 2012 black-and-gold mini dress. Unfortunately, the risk did not pay off for her. The look is not particularly flattering and the high bun is too cutesy for her.

With the exception of Kristin who looks flawless, they all can and have done much better.

Anna Kendrick opted for a tried and tested ethereal pretty look on the red carpet for The Trevor Project’s ‘Trevor Live’ event honouring singer Katy Perry at the Hollywood Palladium in LA on Sunday evening.

The actress wore a Georges Chakra Spring 2012 Couture frock.

Her short blue tulle-and-lace cocktail dress, styled with silver accessories, is a sweet look for Anna but one I feel like I’ve seen from her many times before, even though it’s not in her favoured nude/blush colour palette.

A Swarovski metallic python ‘Nirvana Star’ box clutch, nude lips and a side- updo completed her look.

Déjà vu or does it feel fresh and new?

With so many pretty dresses on the red carpet for the 49th Annual Golden Horse Awards in Taiwan on Saturday evening, Jiang Wenli opted for something more dramatic.

The actress selected a one-sleeve Georges Chakra Fall 2012 Couture gown.

I just love the way the sleek black and purple sequinned gown has an explosion of organza ruffled layers on the skirt.

Thankfully, the grand gown doesn’t overwhelm her petite figure.

Piaget diamond drop earrings and a black clutch from Giuseppe Zanotti accessorized her look with a slick back-do providing the finishing touches.

It’s going to be so hard to pick a favourite from all these looks.

Hayden Panettiere has become quite a regular at country music events, so I wasn’t surprised to see her at the 46th Annual CMA Awards held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, last night.

The actress wore a Georges Chakra Spring 2012 Couture mini dress.

Her light-green ‘Charleston’ beaded dress featured lines of fringed pearls draped on her back and her skirt for a 20s flapper vibe.

I love her accessories; they include satin green T-bar Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, a crystallized blue-and-green clutch and a L’Dezen Jewellery bracelet.

A side-swept bun and glossy nude lips completed her look.
