Carrie Underwood’s 8 Wardrobe Changes At The 2011 CMA Awards

Carrie Underwood was the host of the 2011 CMA Awards.

She arrived in Reem Acra, but she went onto have 8 costume changes whilst hosting the show.

One of my favourite looks was this Zuhair Murad Resort 2012 gown.

The heavenly floral-print gown with a rise-and-fall hemline also features a beaded detail at the waist.

Her ultra-feminine look was teamed with a cutesy pink hair accessory which I didn’t favour.

Fergie In Georges Chakra Couture – The Clinton Foundation’s ‘A Decade Of Difference’ Gala

Fergie looked sensational as she arrived at The Clinton Foundation’s ‘A Decade Of Difference’ Gala in LA with hubby Josh Duhamel on Friday night.

The Black Eyed Peas singer struck a pose on the red carpet wearing a Georges Chakra Spring 2011 Couture dress.

She looked chic wearing this navy blue and white one-shoulder dress with an asymmetrical pleated organza bust and geometric embroidered skirt.

Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle Strass’ pumps and a matching Hervé Léger by Max Azria clutch perfectly accessorized her look.

A top knot and pink lip gloss provided the finishing touches.

It’s been a while since Fergie looked this good on the red carpet.

Georges Chakra Fall 2011 Couture

During Paris Fashion Week I also attended the Georges Chakra Fall 2011 Couture presentation.

The designer showcased a typically high octane over the top collection which attracts celebrity clients such as Queen Latifah, Kelly Rowland, Li Bing Bing and Michelle Trachtenberg.

As expected we saw many fall like colours such as black, chocolate brown, bronze, rich reds and purples, but the sparks came via some bright colours such as tangerine and fuchsia pink.

There was so much variety in this collection from the pleated off-the-shoulder gown with the gold tone cummerbund, a sequined jumpsuit with a pale blue train, a red sequin dress with laser cut-outs and of course the wedding gown which was very different in style to the usual ballgowns.

I really liked the makeup. Gold and purple eyeshadow with rouge lips really popped against the pale skins of the model.

Their hair was pulled up into a tight bun with a single purple floral accent.

Favourites: The finale gown and the purple frou frou gown

Who I See Wearing This Collection: The Country Girls; Martina McBride, Kellie Pickler, Miranda Lambert, Hillary Scott, and Carrie Underwood plus Katy Perry, Queen Latifah, Emily Blunt, Selena Gomez

Nina Dobrev In Georges Chakra Couture – 2011 MuchMusic Video Awards

Most Predictable Award
Every time I see Nina Dobrev on the red carpet my reaction is, “Next” as I find her style and red carpet choices so dated and boring.

I featured her on this occasion to highlight the point and to prevent the inevitable question, “Why didn’t you feature Nina Dobrev?”

At the 2011 MuchMusic Video Awards she wore Georges Chakra Fall 2010 Couture dress.

Unfortunately the Vampire Diaries’ actress doesn’t make the dress work for me.

By shortening the dress, it just becomes a long line in predictable mini dresses she’s already worn on the red carpet.

The iridescent emerald green strapless dress with an asymmetric bow was paired with Aldo shoes.

A Couture dress with Aldo shoes?

Need I say more?

Li Bing Bing In Georges Chakra Spring 2011 Couture – 2011 Cannes Film Festival “The Artist” Premiere

If the L’Oreal memo said ‘Big Couture Gown Night’, everyone got the message.

Li Bing Bing (no relation to Fan) wore a Georges Chakra Spring 2011 Couture gown on the red carpet for the 2011 Cannes Film Festival “The Artist” Premiere this evening.

I always thought this gown had a Princess Leia vibe to it when I saw it presented back in January; so I find it adorable that the Asian actress styled her hair accordingly.

I love that she opted for this big gown, but didn’t pile it high with jewels as the gown sparkles plenty on its own.

She clearly didn’t travel all that way to go unnoticed or upstaged by the other stars on this red carpet, and I admire her for that.
