Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Patsy Kensit was easily my Best Dressed at this event wearing a red and black feather print Alexander McQueen cowl neck gown.

If you look to your right, you will see that I loved this gown so much I added it to my favourites this week.

As with any McQueen piece, the gown has a dramatic print which is both seductive and haunting.

I can’t help wishing she saved this stunning gown for a grander occasion.

Billie Piper also looked fab – excluding the Alexa Chung two-tone hair.

Speaking of Alexa, this is very much a look that Alexa would have channeled pre-grubby chic.

I love the ivory blazer and studded sandals, which she pairs with black jeans.

Ex-Eastenders actress Gillian Taylforth has obviously been looking after herself, as she appears not to have aged since I last saw her on the BBC show 10 years ago.

Can you believe she’s 54?

She looks outstanding wearing a coral plunging gown.

Speaking of ex-soap stars  many others attended this event last night.

A red carpet event in London would not be complete without a Lipsy London dress, and ex-Coronation Street actress Angela Griffin was the one to provide that for us wearing an ivory Lipsy London strapless dress with bejeweled pockets.

Ex-Eastenders actress Lauren Crace wore a black strapless dress, with strappy sandals whilst carrying a Topshop floral glitter clutch.

Gemma Atkinson wore a red French Connection ribbon dress, which looks a lot like a Herve Leger bandage dress.

Whilst Michelle Collins opted for something more sophisticated wearing a lace mini cocktail dress.

Other stars included Emmerdale’s Emma Rigby wearing a blue harem pants jumpsuit accented with a black bow tie.

Keely Hawes brought the ankle boot with cute dress trend to the UK.

Eastenders actress Danniella Westbrook opted for a long-sleeved dress covered in multi-coloured paillettes which I love.

Nina Toussaint-White from Eastenders opted for a cute embellished baby-doll dress.

Earlier this week Taylor Swift was in the UK to play at Virgin Media’s V Festival.

Before arriving in London Taylor twittered, “About to take off. Next stop: London. Or as I like to call it… FUN-don.”

So she was expecting to have a great time, and it looks like she did.

On a shopping trip around Notting Hill the singer was spotted wearing oversized shades, Frye sandals and a cute floral Lipsy London backless sundress.

This dress is currently on sale reduced from £50 to £30.

Lipsy are currently offering Free Standard UK Delivery on all orders. Simply use the Promotion Code: BANKHOLIDAY.

This offer ends at Midnight Monday 31st August 2009

Taylor has developed an impressive personal style and this is evident in her other looks.

On her way to her performance on breakfast show GMTV, she wore a floral dress with brown cut-out heels.

A blue and green Rebecca Taylor dress with aqua Christian Louboutin peep-toe pumps were paired together for dinner at Hakkasan with Katy Perry.

On another night out she wore a violet Tracy Reese iridescent sculpted dress paired with a yellow bag, and black peep-toes.

On her way to V Festival she looked cute wearing a navy dress with a white print, paired with her Frye sandals again.

With the number 13 written on her hand, Taylor signed autographs for her fans outside her hotel.  She was dressed to enjoy our summer wearing a simple black and white tee, with a striped A line skirt.

Looking this good you’re always welcome back to London Taylor.

Anna Friel has been injecting a lot of sassy edgier pieces in her closet recently, and she stays true to form wearing this sexy Antonio Berardi Fall 2009 black textured dress.

I love the sculptured shoulders, the square cut neckline and the fact that she didn’t wear tights with this dress. We had horrible weather this weekend in England as you can see from the moody clouds in the background.

Black heels and a black crocodile clutch complete this look.

Designer Saloni Lodha and Marissa Anschutz seem to be having a wonderful time.

Saloni is wearing a haltered dress from her own Spring 2009 collection which has a ruffled bib and a tiered skirt.

It’s perfect for a summers day, so it’s such a shame the bad weather made her wear a jacket and we don’t get to see all of the stunning details of her design.

Marissa was a more bold wearing her Saloni Cora strapless dress sans coat.

Her beige chiffon gathered strapless dress has mesh panel on the sides with a black velvet trim plus black and fluorescent pink chiffon detail and beading embellishment.

It’s a gorgeous dress, but I find my eyes drawn to her fuchsia pink Christian Louboutin Paquita satin sandals.

Neve Campbell doesn’t attend many events, so this is a rare treat.

The actress wore a multi-coloured tiered Moschino dress with black pumps.

The dress is nice, but the hairstyle ages her.

Honestly I almost didn’t recognise Ashley Roberts with so much clothing on.

Normally the most we see on her is a bra and hot pants when she’s performing with her group the PussyCat Dolls.

She really scrubs up well, looking very ladylike in her ravishing red Alexander McQueen pocketed dress with shoulder pads and a cowl neckline.

Naomie Harris’ cream demi-sheer D&G dress is instantly recognizable by the black appliqué butterfly detail on the neckline.

I love the ruffled hemline.

She did well wear the right coloured bra under this dress.

Lara Lewington is wearing the very popular Lipsy London zip edge strapless dress which only costs £35, whilst probably wearing thousands of pounds worth of Cartier jewels.

I’m addicted to Eastenders at the moment and I’m particularly loving the old favourites like Janine Butcher (my favourite character of all time), Bianca Jackson, and Ricky Butcher returning to the square, as they make up for dull characters like Ronnie and Roxy Mitchell.

Another old favourite due to return to the Square this summer is Danniella Westbrook as Sam Mitchell.

What has caused her to return to Walford? And what will her ex-husband Ricky say when she walks back into his life?  We will have to wait and see.

The BBC have release this picture of her on the set of EastEnders wearing a Lipsy London colourblock tulip dress.

The mini dress has a pleated tulip skirt, pleated contrast waistband and boned bustier.

This is a perfect summer dress for any occasion.  The dress comes in 4 different colour combinations which you can buy from Lipsy London for only £55.

UK retailer Lipsy London have recently added this haltered Ric Rac dress figure hugging mini dress with a double bow on the front to their website.

This dress – I’m sure you will agree – holds a strong resemblance to the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2008 white dress we saw presented a few season ago.

It has the same neckline, bow and ric rac detailing but it doesn’t have the same price tag.

The Marc by Marc Jacobs dress was sold for $458/£345, but this blue Lipsy Ric Rac dress is only £65 and is also sold in black, pink, and white.

Eastenders actress Madeline Duggan wore a Lipsy London blue strapless dress with beaded pockets, to the 2009 British Soap Awards.

This was only her third red carpet appearance, and I think she looks really cute matching her accessories to her Matthew Williamson Spring 2009 imitation dress.

Actress Adele Silver opted for a less matchy matchy approach to her little blue dress, when she attended the Miss Great Britain 2009 event in London a few days later.

She wore her dress with taupe Christian Louboutin heels, and a silver clutch.

As cute as Madeline matchy matchy look is, I prefer Adele’s subtle accessories, so she wins for me.


The Lipsy London is available in 3 colours for £65.
