Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Most Dramatic Award
With Rihanna going sophisticated in Elie Saab Couture and Katy Perry going romantic in Badgley Mischka, someone had to bring the drama to the red carpet at the 2010 American Music Awards in LA tonight.

Cue Nicki Minaj who took the red carpet by storm wearing a Manish Arora Spring 2011 dress.

I say dress; it’s more like a piece of art.

One has to wonder how she managed to sit in this dress.

I think she totally pulled it off. It would be really easy to get lost in this dress.

Christian Louboutin heels and green tipped hair completed her look.

Katy Perry arrived at the 27th Annual ASCAP Pop Music Awards in LA last night, sporting a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes I would’ve placed money on Rihanna wearing first.

The singer wore the Jimmy Choo Zappa suede sandals which light up when you walk.

It’s a funny idea, so its appropriate that a crazy character like Katy wore the first.

She also wore Manish Arora Spring 2010 dress.

I sense that this mullet dress is a DIY job.

The cut at the front doesn’t seem to be as neat as if the designer did it himself.

Either way this is a good look for Katy.

It nice to see something different on the red carpet.

Manish Arora’s Fall 2010 presentation was dazzling to say the very least.

This season Manish was inspired by the Art Deco era where the past collides with the future resulting in a kaleidoscopic wave of colour.

The silhouettes were inspired by the 20s and 30s with the emphasis on dropped waists, fitted shapes, detailed shoulder enhancements and draping.

The colour palette included shades of green, purple, black, pinks and blues.

I loved the look with the asymmetrical peplum and the dress which had a patchwork qulited like dress.

Everything sparkled, dazzled and blinged. Even the models wore blinging wigs, if they didn’t have neon coloured wefts in their hair.

If you are thinking that these looks aren’t red carpet ready, Manish’s designs have been worn by Estelle, Rihanna and Katy Perry.

Rihanna was in London this week to perform at the Brixton o2 Academy.

She took to the stage – much to the delight of her fans – to perform wearing an asymmetrical black bodysuit with embellishments from Manish Arora’s Spring 2010 collection.

It’s was a typically bold stage look for Rihanna, because as we know RiRi doesn’t do safe anymore.

Fishnet tights and ankle boots completed the look.

RiRi’s most interesting look was her Mark Fast Fall 2009 tangerine knit dress, which she wore when she attended the Nokia X6 launch at Mahiki nightclub in Mayfair.

Mark Fast is the knitwear designer of the moment, and his super sexy dresses are sought after by many fashionista’s.

Her look was paired with a Louis Vuitton tasseled bag, grey Christian Louboutin Lynne backless ankle boots and Maria Francesca Pepe chunky chain bracelet.

Prior to her arrival in London Rihanna was pictured outside “Skyrock Radio” in Paris, where she made an appearance to promote her new album, ‘Russian Roulette.’

It was here we got to see her wearing a Rick Owens Fall 2009 dove grey coat, which she wore over her Acne Spring 2010 cropped printed jumpsuit.

En route to her hotel in London Rihanna was spotted wearing another Rick Owens look.

She paired her black leather jacket with a grey IRO fur hat and this time she opted to carry her Louis Vuitton fanny pack.

Shopping on Oxford Street in London, her devotion was clear as she wore yet another Rick Owens jacket.

This dove grey version is my favourite. It looks so snug, soft and luxurious.

Her Rick Owens cropped padded shouldered leather jacket, plus the Rick Owens black leather jacket and my favourite Rick Owens padded vintage tie leather jacket are all available to purchase from Luisa via Roma.

A Rick Owens leather jacket is without doubt the investment piece for your winter wardrobe. Perfect for day or evening.

I want one now.
