Red Carpet Fashion Awards

There was a time when Toronto Film Festival was a lot less glamorous than its cousins, Cannes and Venice.

Something has changed this year, the gowns are more spectacular, and we are seeing a lot more couture so I couldn’t be happier.

Zhang Ziyi was glamour personified when she took the red carpet ‘Dangerous Liaisons’ premiere yesterday evening during the Toronto Film Festival.

Her ivory gown with bold shoulders, keyhole detail and a bejewelled neckline doesn’t make me go weak at the knees; it has me passed out on the floor.

With a fresh face glow she completed her look with retro marcel waves and diamanté nails.

Tika Sumpter returned to the red carpet on Thursday evening for the LA premiere of her latest film ‘Sparkle.’

We are kicking ourselves that we missed this last week.

The former ‘Gossip Girl’ actually completely blew me away wearing a stunning red Marc Bouwer Fall 2012 gown.

Pairing a plunging neckline with a thigh-high slit is dangerous territory, but Tika makes it look effortless and not overtly revealing.

I’m in love with the gown’s strong shoulders and gorgeous ruching along the waist.

A sleek ponytail and minimal jewelry complete the look.

A red-carpet star is born.

The votes for BDOTW were tied this week.

You couldn’t decide between the glamorous Marc Bouwer gown worn by Beyonce Knowles for her World Humanitarian Day performance, and Jessica Biel’s Giambattista Valli Couture look worn to the ‘Total Recall’ London premiere.

Beyonce’s white sequin gown blew us away, while Jessica’s look was a much-needed improvement considering the many issues we have had with her red-carpet looks prior.

So in the end this was the perfect result.

My personal favourite this week was Jessica in GBV.

Beyoncé Knowles donned white again when she took to the stage at the United Nations General Assembly on Friday in New York City.

The singer performed ‘I Was Here’, which was taped in front of a live audience to premiere August 19 on World Humanitarian Day.

Not only did she leave the audience breathless with her performance, but also her stunning Marc Bouwer Pre-Fall 2012 gown.

Her white micro-sequin long-sleeve gown with bold shoulders and a cut-out detail could be mistaken for a couture gown.

Once again she opted for no accessories, keeping her makeup natural with a sleek ponytail.

An early candidate for BDOTW.

Questions My Love For Leopard Print Award
At the 2011 Billboard Music Awards Mary J Blige made me question my love of leopard print.

I have always been a fan of leopard print, but this dress is screaming to go back into the wild.

I don’t like the solid panels with the print and I really don’t like the high neckline.

Mary can pull of most looks, but this look is overwhelming her from the print, to the neckline to the bold shoulders.
