Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Brittany Snow wore this gorgeous periwinkle-blue Georges Hobeika Fall 2012 Couture dress to the ‘Pitch Perfect’ LA premiere back in September.

The enticing colour of her Swarovski-beaded and organza-and-velvet floral appliquéd dress made her baby-blue eyes pop. The key to pulling off this look was effortless styling, which the actress mastered.

Sadly the same can’t be said for Yao Chen.

The actress wore the same dress a month later to the L’Officiel 2012 China Elegance Awards in Beijing, China and sucked all the elegance out of the frock with her heavy-handed styling of the look.

Even the blue nails were a step too far, but she also added a nude Bulgari clutch and cobalt-blue Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ pumps.

Miss USA, Olivia Culpo, was crowned Miss Universe at the annual event held at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas last night.

Gone are the days when the contestants would wear off-the-rack; they are now wearing couture.

Olivia received her crown wearing a Georges Hobeika Fall 2012 Couture gown.

Her raspberry velvet and muslin gown is beautiful, but I wish she had opted to modify the deep plunge. After all, it was Miss Universe, not Miss Golden Globes.

Xingtong Yao was back on the red carpet this weekend attending the 55th Asia-Pacific Film Festival held at the Venetian Macao Resort Hotel in Macau.

Giving us a slight smile on this occasion, the stunning Asian actress wore another gown by a Lebanese designer, this time from Georges Hobeika’s Fall 2012 Couture collection.

Her raspberry gown with a daring keyhole opening was decorated with Swarovski crystals, pearls and velvet flowers, plus a velvet waistband which nips in the waist.

I love the unique gathered details on the skirt which fall in an asymmetrical line, allowing for the gown to move with a graceful elegance.

Pretty nails, a side-swept ponytail and diamond-encrusted earrings completed this look.

Georges Hobeika appears to be huge in Asia at the moment, with so many actresses wearing his designs on the red carpet.

Chen Shu attended the Bulgari Grand Opening in Wuhan, China last week looking as elegant as ever.

The Chinese actress wore a Georges Hobeika Spring 2012 Couture gown.

I was delighted to see a piece from this collection on the red carpet as it was very much under-utilized by celebrities.

Her buttercup-yellow gown, with fold details on the bodice and a pleated chiffon skirt, was styled (some might say over-styled, but consider the event) with Bulgari jewels and a gold clutch.

Flawless makeup and a simple updo completed her modern princess look.

Even with her elf ears, we were swept away by Yao Chen’s Georges Hobeika Couture gown.

Some of you were put off by the fact that she chose such an elaborate gown for a daytime premiere, but the rest of us – who crave princess moments on the red carpet – instantly fell in love with her periwinkle-blue strapless gown.

When it came to the guys, our picks differed.

You opted for the handsome Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Gucci, while I was floored by how handsome Peter Facinelli looked in his Tommy Hilfiger grey suit.
