Red Carpet Fashion Awards

My first thought when I saw Carey Mulligan in this Giles Resort 2011 dress at the 14th Annual Hollywood Awards Gala was, “How can Shia LaBeouf end his relationship with Carey when she’s 5 months pregnant?”

Her maroon draped Giles dress is incredibly unflattering, but I’m hoping it’s just the angle of the photo.

Either way me no likey as the dress does nothing for her.

Here we have a British supermodel and a British pop star-turned fashion designer, supporting British designer Giles Deacon.

Agyness Deyn was the first to wear this gunmetal grey Giles Fall 2009 dress when she attended the “Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition Preview Party” last June.

We can see almost every inch of her legs in this ultra mini dress which she wore with black and white Christian Louboutin Differa sandals.

Victoria Beckham loves this dress so much she’s worn it 3 times.

Firstly in a salmon colour during New York’s Fashion Night Out, then on a shoot for LG and most recently when she attended the Diane Von Furstenberg and Claridge’s party.

VB paired her dress with Brian Atwood ‘RZ’ thigh-high boots and a Lanvin Oulala satin clutch.

Even though Victoria’s had plenty of practice getting this look to work for her she wins because Aggie’s deep berry shade of lippie doesn’t work for me, nor did I like the bleach blonde do with the growing dark roots.

David Beckham and Victoria Beckham attended Kelly Hoppens birthday party at her house in Notting Hill, London on Friday.

It was really good to see Victoria Beckham wearing this red knit Giles Resort 2011 mini dress with a matching cropped cardi.

I got me thinking that maybe she decided to wear black all those times when her hubby was playing in Milan as she didn’t feel the need to dress up.

This look is so very refreshing because of the colour, the length and the fact that she’s wearing another designer. A fellow British designer.

It’s great to see VB wearing her own dress collection, but when the majority of the looks are black or pencil dresses it can get a bit samey.

I wonder if Vicky B knows that Abbey Clancey – WAG to Spurs player Peter Crouch – was the model for this collection.

Last night Victoria Beckham was the star attraction at the “Diane Von Furstenberg and Claridge’s party” to celebrate Diane’s interior designs of 20 rooms and suites for the luxury London hotel.

Victoria looked great, but seriously this Giles Fall 2009 dress again.

It excusable – to some degree – to wear a dress after someone else, but Victoria must have remembered that she’d already worn this dress once/twice before.

Once in the same gunmetal grey for the LG Fashion ads, and once in a salmon colour for the Bergdorf Goodman celebration of Fashion’s Night Out back in September last year.

Like at the Bergdorf Goodman party, Victoria paired her Giles dress with thigh-high boots.

On that occasion they were Gucci, last night they were black suede Brian Atwood ‘RZ’ boots. ‘RZ’ short for Rachel Zoe who collaborated with the designer on his Fall 2010 collection.

I’m very surprised that VB wore thigh-high boots on one of London’s hottest days of the year.

The look was paired with Anita Ko rose gold and diamond spike bracelet and a Lanvin Oulala satin clutch.

I really shocked by this. When did VB become so boring and repetitive?

It’s one thing to wear the same look at Heathrow and LAX, but on the red carpet I expect more from her.

My first reaction when I saw Cheryl Cole on Saturday nights X Factor was “What the hell is she wearing?”

I’m her biggest fan, but this Giles Spring 2010 dress was ridiculous.

I tried to convince myself to like it during the show telling myself the look was cute and fun, but then she stood up to give Joe Mcelderry a standing ovation, and then I saw her thorn tattoo around her thigh and it just confirmed how wrong this look was for her.

It was Wham night, so I guessed the hairstyle was supposed to resemble a young Madonna in “Desperately Seeking Susan”, but ended up looking very childish.

Her Christian Louboutin Fifre ankle boots were the icing on a very tasteless cake.

Sunday night was much better as the X Factor judge wore a hot pink Jean Pierre Braganza Spring 2010 backless cold-shoulder dress from the designers ‘Psychadelactica’ collection.

I loved the bold colour, the tasteful plunging neckline, and the cute matching globe earrings.

The look was paired with Nicholas Kirkwood pearl embellished sandals.

Like I said it was better, but overall it she’s had much better weeks on the show.

Victoria Beckham put her best Gucci thigh-high boot forward at Bergdorf Goodman’s celebration of Fashion’s Night Out earlier this month.

The fashion designer wore a reptile print Giles Fall 2009 dress, a black head band and smoky eyes.

Some of you have said that when Sara Paxton wore the same dress to “The Beautiful Life” party, she didn’t know Victoria Beckham had worn the same dress 2 days earlier.

I would say that was impossible. Victoria’s picture was in every paper, website and blog the following day. There is no way Sara and her stylist didn’t know VB wore it.

Sara looks great in the dress, but nothing in the world will make me like those Alejandro Ingelmo woven slingbacks she’s wearing, they don’t seem to work with anything so Victoria wins this for me.
