Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Max Ariza’s Spring 2011 presentation was as beautiful, minimalist and subtly sexy as I expected it to be.

I loved the maxi dresses, the wide leg high waisted pants which billowed down the runway.

Some of the dresses were paired with a crop silk blouses.

The textures and fabrics looked so luxe I imagined them being buttery to the touch.

Ice cream shades of peach, vanilla and mint green took to the runway with black, grey and white pieces presented too.

The dresses were held up with the thinnest straps creating intricate interesting details across the back.

I guess its no bras allow with some of these looks.

Key accessories included sculuptured wooden bangles, slashed clutches, suede booties and ankle strapped sandals.

Favourites: The heather grey top paired with grey crepe pants and the white printed silk Georgette dress

Front Row: Estelle, Leigh Lezark, Katrina Bowden, Alison Brie, Solange Knowles and Aisha Tyler

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Emily Deschanel, Angelina Jolie, Jayma Mays, Jennifer Connelly, Julianne Moore, Sandra Oh and Maggie Q

The Bold & The Beautiful Award
We had more drama on the red carpet at the 2010 Emmy Awards last night from Emily Deschanel.

The actress opted or a bold colour with a bolder texture via her Max Azria Atelier one-shouldered purple gown.

I love the dramatic pleats which cover the gown and the cinched in waist which stops her looking like a red cabbage.

Neil Lane jewels including gold hoops and a simple gold bracelet are teamed with a black clutch.

Actress Lucy Liu appeared on “Good Day NY” this week to talk about her latest role in the Broadway show “God of Carnage”.

Lucy also has an upcoming movie coming out called “East Fifth Bliss”, so hopefully we will get to see more of her on the red carpet.

The star looked as stunning as ever wearing a Max Azria Resort 2010 watercolour dress with an asymmetrical neckline,

Camilla Belle wore the green version of this dress last year.

I much prefer this version as it has a fresh spring feel to it.

That feeling continues right down to her Miu Miu cutout sandals.

Does anyone agree that this should be BDOTW?

I’m asking because I tend to be biased towards Lucy as she’s one of my faves.

I would describe Max Azria’s Fall 2010 collection as minimalist chic.

The designer kept the collection sleek and very simple.

There were no vibrant colours in this collection, as the colour palette consisted of mostly black, but we also saw coffee, grey, white and burgandy.

I loved how refined and well though-out this collection was, as we were presented with draped dresses, leather skinny pants, 3/4 length sleeved leather jackets and coats.

I was surprised to see a few black bandage dresses in this collection which were not as in your face as those presented in the Herve Leger collection earlier this week.

I love this new minimalism direction, and so did AnnaLynne McCord, Estelle, Maggie Q and Melissa George in the front row.

Evax Campaign Launch, Madrid

Monica Cruz wore a Roberto Cavalli eyelet embellished dress from the Fall 2009 collection.

We’re unsure as to whether Monz is wearing a longer length dress, or that it just appears longer in comparison to the legging model.

I like the boots as it’s in keeping with the rock chic-esque feel of the dress.

‘Sherlock Holmes’ Paris Photocall

My current girl crush Rachel McAdams is wearing a Alberta Ferretti Fall 2009 grey wool dress with jewel encrusted shoulders.

After Rachel fabulous week, I’m sad to say I’m bit bored by this.

She’s wearing a shorter length than seen on the catwalk, which I’m glad of but it feels like something is missing.

Great choice of suede Brian Atwood “Marlo” pumps.

“Creation” New York Photocall

Jennifer Connelly wore this Stella McCartney Spring 2010 suit which I think looks really chic and sophisticated.

I like the silk skirt which adds to the femininity of the ruffled front of the jacket.

I just wish that it wasn’t so much of a block colour.

“A Single Man” Cocktail Party, LA

Selma Blair was spotted arriving at this party in a Roland Mouret Pre-Fall 2008 dress.

Again, I just can’t get over excited about the black.

Her hair also looks a bit disheveled.

Paloma Picasso Tiffany & Co, Australia

Maria Sharapova looks beautiful in this slate grey v-neck Max Azria Spring 2010 dress. I really like the colour against her blonde hair.

Great choice of gladiator-style shoe as well.

The only thing I would say is that her hair could have been tidied up a bit.

Julianne Moore we love you!

She never fails to give us goosebumps and everything here is spot on, from her Lanvin two-tone bustier dress to those gorgeous t-bar shoes.

What a great hairstyle too.

Victoria’s Secret Beauty Launches Love Rocks Fragrance Collection, New York

Another day, another Taylor Momsen outfit, another desperate attempt to be alternative *yawns*.

The colour of this dress completely washes her out

And don’t get me started on the lace up cuff and the raccoon make-up which has made a comeback.

Giuseppe Zanotti biker boots complete the look.
