Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Anna Kendrick arrived at the 2011 Vanity Fair Oscar Party wearing the colour of the night – red.

The “Up In The Air” actress wore a red Notte by Marchesa mini dress.

Her chiffon strapless dress has an oversized organza bow with a ruffle cascading down the dress.

Sandra Bullock opted for a head-to-toe red look, but Anna added heavy black accessories.

A black Christian Louboutin ‘Palais Royal’ clutch and black Louboutin ‘Open Lips’ peep-toes provided the contrast in her look.

Anna swept her hair to one side and added a ruby diamond bracelet to complete her look.

Lauren Conrad made an appearance at the Barnes & Noble store in New York City yesterday.

The former “The Hills” star looked adorable in a short white Notte by Marchesa lace sheath dress as she posed for pictures before taking a seat to greet fans and sign copies of her two new books, “Sugar and Spice” and the “Lauren Conrad Style Guide”.

I’m sure both books will be huge sellers. I’ll admit I purchased her first one, which was embarrassing as it was located in the Teen section at Waterstone’s.

Her cute lace mini was paired with Aldo heels and a silver hair accessory.

I hope you all had a relaxing Memorial Day weekend and Bank Holiday weekend. If only 3 day weekends were the norm.

Big Brother presenter Davina McCall took a rare night off wearing head-to-toe black when she wore this navy blue Notte by Marchesa gown to the 15th National Television Awards held at the O2 Arena back in January this year.

X Factor winner Alexandra Burke wore a fiery red version of the same strapless bow accented gown to match with her sparkling personality when she attended The Brit Awards 2010 at Earls Court back in February.

Both kept their accessories light, but Alexandra’s gown pops on the red carpet so she wins for me.

The bow accented strapless gown has been recently added to Net-A-Porter US and Net-A-Porter International in black, and Net-A-Porter US and Net-A-Porter International in blue.

One thing you can guarantee on the red carpet at a Latin ceremony is plenty of colour.

The ladies didn’t disappoint.

Lucero was the host of the show gracing the red carpet wearing a purplicious Angel Sanchez Resort 2010 one-shouldered gown, with a red trim for added detail.

I wish she’d worn the gown with the trim around the neckline folded up like on the runway, but I’m guessing her interpretation was to show off her cleavage.

Barbara Bermudo also wore an Angel Sanchez Resort 2010 gown from the same collection.

I much prefer Barbara’s rich coloured blue one-shouldered gown as it feels more regal.

Her hair was slicked back with statement earrings completing the look.

If this was a face-off actress Marlene Favela would win hands down in her David Salomon Spring 2010 gown.

The gown caresses her curves, giving her a stunning silhouette plus I love the volume on her ruffled shoulder detail.

Eva Longoria walked the red carpet, and also presented an award at the ceremony.

The ‘Desperate Housewives’ actress was sparkling wearing a typically gorgeous Zuhair Murad Resort 2010 bronze and gold strapless beaded pencil dress with a fringed hem.

As gorgeous as her dress is, Eva’s outshone by the other ladies on this red carpet.

Kika Rocha glows in an electric blue Notte by Marchesa Fall 2009 strapless gown with a rosette detail on the waist.

Simply exquisite, with a beautiful smile to match.

Laura Pausini shunned colour for a beautiful black Giorgio Armani Fall 2009 strapless dress accented with a jeweled detail on the bodice.

Love the dress, but I would’ve loved her look more without the necklaces.

This Oscar de la Renta Fall 2009 purple gown is very popular on red carpets around the world.  I think this is it’s 4th outing.

Singer Natalia Jimenez is the latest celebrity to wear it.

For me this dress is made more interesting with the runway belt.

Amaia Montero looked oh so cute wearing a white draped Diane von Furstenberg sequined gown, which had a black sash tied to the waist from the Resort 2009 collection.

There is a lot of green going on with Alicia Keys’ Kaufman Franco look, but I think it’s more green goddess than green goblin.

Georgina Chapman For Garrard Launch, London

Standing quite a vision in regal blue, Georgina Chapman posed at the launch of her new jewellery collection for Garrard.

Once again we see the designer rocking her own brand, however the founder of Marchesa does make a rather impressive clothes horse for this exotic design.

A mass of sequins and beads, this short sparkly number certainly gains attention, with bordering feathers softening the tough structure. Opting for simple black platforms to complement her look, Georgina keeps the rest basic too, with natural hair and just a touch of a smouldering eye on show.

Princess Beatrice attended the event wearing a Notte by Marchesa Fall 2009 piece.

Very much in-keeping with this season’s favourite trend, Beatrice knows that anything that glitters or gleams goes, and looks fantastic covered in chunky gold sequins.

The little jacket and tights that Beatrice has chosen smarten this look, showing that even though she is a Princess, Beatrice knows grown-up glamour.

“The Box” New York Premiere

Despite this RM by Roland Mouret body-con dress fitting Cameron Diaz’s form perfectly, it’s disappointing to see the normally animated and lively actress in this more muted style.

Her personality has previously been heightened by what she has worn, however here, Cameron loses something of her kinetic celebrity persona.

By dressing down in tights and adding a tame up ‘do, it further dampens things. This dress doesn’t do her justice.

“Valentino: The Last Emperor”, New York

In keeping with recent ghoulish-festivities, Daphne Guiness stepped out a few nights ago in a dark ensemble, mixing textures and shapes creatively.

The fashion-forward mum-of-three stuck with her usual flamboyant style, combining tight leather leggings, a satin bodice and a velvet cropped jacket.

Stepping out in Nina Ricci’s lavish Fall 2009 boot, Daphne doesn’t disappoint as an example of someone unafraid to experiment with fashion, fully confident in her stride.

Socialite Lauren Remington Platt was spotted wearing this gorgeous Julien Macdonald dress recently, a garment taken from the designer’s Spring 2010 collection.

This same dress was placed on our Wish List page not long ago for starlet Cheryl Cole.

The candy-colours fused with figure-hugging fabric create a piece that is sweet and girly but with a flirtatious, sexy edge.

CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists Dinner, LA

Stunning Diane Kruger looks effortlessly chic in this asymmetric Chloe Fall 2009 jumpsuit.

Belted, to cinch her waist and showing just a peep of skin, the actress needn’t do anything else to this fabulous piece.

She kept her hair and make-up basic to achieve a flawless example of great style.

Georgina Chapman is the latest guest designer for Garrard.

She follows it-girl and jewelery designer Jade Jagger who departured from the company as Creative Director in 2007.

The designer looked stunning in an electric blue strapless Marchesa strapless dress with a gathered bodice which hasn’t appeared on the runway.  See she can diversify.

Exquisite earrings and a ring from her Garrard collection complete the look.

Helena Christensen will always be one of the most beautiful women on this planet. I love how she’s working this look.

The super wore a black Marchesa mini tank dress, which incorporates the white embroidery detail from a Marchesa Spring 2010 gown we saw presented recently.

Her look is paired with black pointy heels, a Marchesa Crocodile clutch and a black Marchesa short sleeved feathered coat.

Tyra Banks would say this look is ‘fieeerrrccceeee’.

Tinsley Mortimer paired her favourite YSL Folies sandals with an onyx Notte by Marchesa bubble hemmed dress with embroidered shoulder straps

Her silver fringed clutch is from her own Samantha Thavasa collection.

Tinsley was there to view the collection, but she was also filming her reality TV show.

Hopefully it’s more interesting and less predictable than “The City”.

Becki Newton kept her look simple but chic wearing a black Notte by Marchesa dress with gold chain trims, paired with a fantastic pair of woven strappy sandals.

Flawless make-up.

Mischa Barton looks amazing in this this black one shoulder Notte by Marchesa dress with chiffon overlay and embroidered waist detail, but the shoes don’t quite do it for me.

In this picture she is showing off a Gold and White diamond bird wraparound Gerrard ring.
