Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Samantha Cameron took her second spin in this Jonathan Saunders Spring 2011 dress, when she had lunch with the Queen and Prince Philip back in June in London.

On the runway this pretty baby blue and white printed dress features a striped black and green waistband plus a sexy cut-out from the neck to the waist.

Samantha’s version of the dress doesn’t have this cut-out. Not surprisingly.

She kept the rest of her look ‘meeting the Queen’ appropriate by pairing her dress with simple black heels.

Tamsin Egerton wore the same dress to attend the Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup Polo Final last month.

The British actress wore the runway version of the dress with the super revealing cut-out but opted to wear the dress without the belt.

She accessorized her outfit with lilac Nicholas Kirkwood leather Moccasin-inspired pees-toes heels and a black quilted Chanel shoulder bag.

Whilst I prefer Tamsin’s cool accessories, the dress is definitely missing the runway belt and I think this makes the cut-out way too revealing so my vote is going to Samantha.

The pop of green colour from the belt really livens up her outfit despite the conservative modifications.

Despite the horrible weather in the UK on Sunday, many stars wore summery looks to The Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup Polo Final at the Cowdray Park Polo Club in Midhurst, England.

Leigh Lezark: The Misshapes DJ wore a white Peter Pilotto Spring 2011 dress. Her silk dress is perfect for the occasion whilst still displaying her edgy style. She opted for Nicholas Kirkwood python silver heels. I wish on this occasion she opted for the same Kirkwood heels worn by Rose Byrne.

Chloe Moretz: The teen actress appears to be taller from the last time we saw her on the red carpet. She wore a simple ivory vest with matching cropped pants, but made the look interesting by adding a straw boater hat, gold long necklace and lilac sandals.

Tamsin Egerton: The English actress opted to wear the Jonathan Saunders Spring 2011 dress recently worn on two separate occasions by Samantha Cameron. The dress really misses the runway belt, so I prefer how it was worn by Samantha. Nicholas Kirkwood sandals completed her look.

Samantha Cameron followed in Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Michelle Obama footsteps by repeating her Jonathan Saunders Spring 2011 dress in London today.

The PM’s wife gave her cracked print dress with a green waistband a second outing for lunch with the Queen and Prince Philip in celebration of his birthday.

Samantha had worn the dress a month ago, when she served lunch to the military during a barbecue in the garden of 10 Downing Street with Michelle Obama who was in town for her state visit.

Whilst I don’t have problem with repeats from Michelle, Catherine and Samantha, it would’ve been nice to see her wear something else for this high profile occasion, especially considering it was worn at exactly the same location.

Michelle Obama and Samantha Cameron reunited today in London to serve food to members of the military during a barbecue in the garden of 10 Downing Street.

Michelle opted to wear a Tracy Reese Pre-Fall 2011 dress which I don’t think was quite the right choice for a barbecue on a sunny day.

The crystal-embellished black chiffon dress has a white print detail on the bodice, cuffs and skirt.

Despite the lightweight fabric, the look still feels so heavy when you compare Michelle to Samantha.

Samantha’s Jonathan Saunders Spring 2011 short sleeve dress with a green waistband was much more summery and appropriate for the event.

Love that both women supported designers from their respective countries.

I have been waiting for a look from the Stéphane Rolland Spring 2011 Couture collection to be showcased on the red carpet ever since I attended the show back in January.

My wait is finally over as Miriam Yeung attended the 2011 Hong Kong Film Awards last night wearing an amazing sculptural gown.

I surprised at how this gown with a gold detail on the hip doesn’t appear to overwhelm her. She totally owns it and looks very comfortable.

Whilst I’m happy to see this look on the red carpet, I’m sad that this now mean there’s less chance of Cate or Tilda wearing it.

Thankfully there are many more amazing pieces from this collection for them to choose from. Read more…

The surprising thing about this edition of WWIB? is that Teresa Palmer wore this Jonathan Saunders Spring 2011 dress first.

Usually that honour would go to someone like Thandie Newton who wore the same dress a few months later.

Teresa attended the 2010 GQ “Men of the Year” Party at the Chateau Marmont in LA back in November.

The new kid on the block wore her grey and turquoise printed dress, which was accented with a black grosgrain belt, with a black clutch and black pumps which disappear into the black carpet.

Thandie also opted to carry a black clutch when she attended InStyle’s Best of British Talent BAFTA party at Shoreditch House in London late January.

Despite not being a fan of white heels, I much prefer them to Teresa black heels, so Thandie easily wins for me. Plus this type of look is typically Thandie and she totally owns the look.
