Red Carpet Fashion Awards


You may not know much about New York based Argentinian designer Gustavo Cadile, but you have seen his stunning designs on Catherine Zeta Jones at the Glamour Woman of the Year Awards, Giuliana Rancic at the Emmy’s, Eva Longoria at the ALMA Awards, Vanessa Williams at the Daytime Emmy Awards and many others, the list is endless.

Why do celebrities love to wear his designs?

Because they are beautiful, effortless and red carpet ready.

Like me Gustavo loves glamour, sophistication and elegance which is evident in his Spring 2010 collection.

Whether the occasion is a premiere, awards show, press conference, wedding, christening or for a lady who lunches, Gustavo has a range of gown and dresses to cover all occasions.

Can’t you just see the green gown with jewel waist band on Angelina Jolie at the SAG Awards, or the blue tulle gown on Kate Winslet at the Oscars?

Oscar hopeful Carey Mulligan would suit the pale blue cocktail dress, whilst I see Hayden Panettiere in the white dress and Emmy Rossum in the pink.

Earlier this year Gustavo was nominated as for the “Rising Star Award” by Fashion Group International. I hope his star continues to rise and we see more of his work on the red carpet.

You can view more of the Gustavo’s Spring 2010 and Resort 2010 collection at GustavoCadile.com.

In the future Gustavo plans to also create a bridal collection.

Regular readers will know that I’m all about the drama.

The more dramatic the dress, the more I fall in love which is why I’m salivating over Rihanna’s Stéphane Rolland Spring 2009 Couture gown.

I expected Rihanna to walk red carpet wearing a Balmain Spring 2010 dress with cut-out details in the hips, so this was a very pleasant surprise.

The white Stéphane Rolland mermaid shaped gown had a pleated detail on the front which swirled around the bodice, before exploding all over the skirt.

This will be a love it or hate it dress. What say you?

Before I fell for Cate Blanchett, it was all about Catherine Zeta Jones. She was my first girl crush.

I had such admiration for her as she held her own on the red carpet amongst the Hollywood major players.

We haven’t seen much of her lately, but walking the red carpet at this event last night she proved that she hasn’t lost any of her sparkle.

CJZ looked outstanding wearing a navy blue Gustavo Cadile’s Resort 2010 lurex gown.

I loved cut, it flatters her so well. I also love how the gown shimmers.

Welcome back Mrs Jones-Douglas, we missed you.

From one ageless beauty to another.

Iman – as usual – looked OUT-Friggin-Standing.

It’s not easy to follow the gorgeous Karlie Kloss because she totally owns everything she wears on the runway.

But when you’re Iman, that doesn’t matter.

The uber model walked the red carpet wearing a pink Jason Wu Spring 2010 feathered confection that is totally delightful.

I love the neon green waistband and her matchy matchy runway platform heels.

She totally stands out as one of the best on this red carpet.

Never take a day of Iman….I BEG you.

Some of you have expressed your confusion as to why Kerry Washington receives so much praise for her red carpet choices.

Come on guys, looks at how amazing she looks wearing this Fendi Spring 2010 blush pink lace floor-length dress.

She looks simply elegant, the colour complements her skin-tone, she accessorized well with silver stunning jewels and a Christian Louboutin snake skin print clutch.

Her look is totally effortless.

What’s not to love?

The Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection still proves to be the most worn collection by celebrities this year.

Liya Kebede, joins Stella McCartney and Jessica Simpson who have both worn this coat/dress.

It’s not just celebrities who have fallen for Stella’s Resort collection.

Glamour magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive walked the red carpet with SVP & Publishing Director Bill Wackermann wearing the same Resort 2010 dress we’ve seen on Frieda Pinto.

It was no surprise that Stella McCartney was honoured at this event.

The designer was of course wearing self designed pieces which all worked well together.

Stella tends to wear a lot of black, so this pop of colour is really refreshing.

Serena Williams is getting the hand of this red carpet thing as she is radiant at this event wearing a red asymmetrical Pamella Roland gown.

I think she has looked her best yet after her stunning Gucci look a few weeks ago.

Yes she looks muscular, but there’s nothing she can do about that.

I would love to say I have finally embraced Katharine McPhee’s platinum blonde ‘do, but I continue to struggle with it.

Hair aside, I totally in love with her BODYAMR peacock blue jersey gown.

The gown shows off her figure, whilst the black patent leather trim and open back shows off Katharine’s sexy side.

The singer/actress accessorized with a black leather Perrin Paris 1893 Riva Pochette oversize clutch.

Maria Shriver looked fab wearing a black lace strapless Monique Lhuillier gown.

In February I tried on this Gustavo Cadile Fall 2009 gown on in the designers showroom. It was so beautiful I didn’t want to take it off.

I was so happy when Emily Deschanel wore the stunning tulle gown to the “49th Monte Carlo Television Festival Closing Ceremony” at the Grimaldi Forum in Monte-Carlo.

She looked breath-taking even though she opted for a black belt, rather than the runway bejeweled belt.

Eva Longoria wore the same dress when she hosted the 2009 ALMA Awards in Los Angeles last month.

Her dress was modified into a one-shouldered dress, as she swept her hair over her other shoulder.

As much as I love both versions, this gown worked better for me as it was intended as a strapless gown so Emily wins for me.

Joseph Altuzarra is only in his second season but stars like Paula Patton and Kim Kardashian are putting his label firmly on the map.

I just LOVE how Kim’s curves fill every inch of this white Altuzarra Fall 2009 dress, making it almost look like a totally different dress from the runway.

I would sooner buy it after seeing it on her, than the runway model.

The sexy star pairs her winter white dress with nude Brian Atwood pumps and a snake skin print clutch.

Thank god she’s back to her natural hair colour.

Sophia Bush along with Kim puts herself in contention for BDOTW.

As I said last week Sophia is back, and this sexy lace turtleneck Max Azria Fall 2009 mini dress shows how.

She looks sexy, a bit edgy, yet still the sophisticated Sophia we all know and love.

Cheryl Burke opted to modify her Gustavo Cadile Fall 2009 mini dress into a strapless dress.

I think this maroon dress with the embellished ribbon benefits from the modification, as Cheryl is simply glowing.

Now this is how I like to see Lauren Conrad.

Wearing something young, fun and COLOURFUL.

Her Mara Hoffman Spring 2010 floral print dress deserved some better shoes, but I will just have to live with the fact that Hollywood loves black pumps.

This look is also one of my favourites from this event.

Hayden Panettiere wore a lavender mini Dennis Basso Spring 2010 dress with draped hips. I love the shape and her taupe accessories which include Bally peep toes, Lauren Merkin “Eve” clutch in glitter python.

Katie Cassidy knows how to look sexy without looking trashy.

My mini Charlize Theron looked stunning wearing a poufy sleeved mini dress which revealed her sexy back, and her winged tattoo.

I love the dress, the shoes and the clutch, but I’m not so crazy about the hair.

It may not be as colourful as I would like, but Selena Gomez looks stunning wearing this Notte by Marchesa off shoulder stretch crepe dress with ruffle sleeves.

It’s a grown up look, but not a boring look for the young actress.

With their trademark platium blonde ‘do’s Kelly Osbourne and DJ Luke Worrall couldn’t keep their eyes off each other as they walked the red carpet.

She wore a black and white ensemble with a jeweled neckline, paired with metallic silver Trib Two’s and orange nail polish.

It’s the child I feel sorry for. Pamela Anderson should know better.

What the fudge is she wearing?  Any why are their safety pins holding her dress together?  Like this look wasn’t tragic enough.

As it will take me a few hours to put everything together, so here’s a first look at Giuliana Rancic on the Emmy’s red carpet.

She’s wearing an exquisite ice blue Gustavo Cadile Resort 2010 gown.

For the next 2 hours we are bound to only see Giuliana from the waist up on “E!’s Live From The Red Carpet”, so she wisely picked a gown that had a beautifully detail neckline.

What a great week for Gustavo Cadile, and what a great look for Giuliana.

Looking forward to the glam-cam, but not Ryan Seacrest. He never asked the right question…”Who Are You Wearing?”
