Red Carpet Fashion Awards

You all hated disliked Keira Knightley’s Rodarte dress, so what are your feelings on the other stars who walked the red carpet at the 2011 Jameson Empire Awards in London last night?

Noomi Rapace becomes the latest celeb to fall in love with those Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ platform pumps or as some of you have called them – stripper heels.

Her heels do brighten up her Viktor & Rolf LBD which she teams with a gold trimmed Alexander McQueen clutch.

Olivia Williams wore a Julien Macdonald nude halter dress with gold embellishments.

Neutral make-up, gold tassel earrings and Jimmy Choo heels completed her look.

Ophelia Lovibond opted for a two-tone Paule Ka dress.

I loved her accessories which included an Alexander McQueen skull detailed peep-toes – which she oddly teamed with white tights – and a Mulberry Lily metallic leather shoulder bag.

Teased tresses completed her look.

Model Lily Cole showed off her mile high legs in a canary yellow Prada sleeveless mini dress.

Her bright flirty dress was teamed with Miu Miu black and white sandals and jeweled headband.

I still can’t get used to her with dark hair.

Even with the white tights I have to say Ophelia is my favourite here. I love her 60s vibe.

Not a black pump in sight. How very refreshing.

Paule Ka’s showroom on rue Saint Honore was transformed into a chic apartment.

Models moved around the apartment dressed in the Fall 2011 collection designed by Serge Cajfinger who I met at the presentation.

The models interacted with guests, smoked cigarettes in the garden, sipped champagne, one was lounging on the bed reading a book and others were seated on the couches.

It was like a being in a live episode of ‘American Next Top Model.’

I kept expecting to hear someone shout, “Tyra Mail.”

Layering was key to this collection with a white cotton poplin shirt as the main staple item.

Muslin skirts, printed silk skirts, fur jackets, asymmetrical colour-block sweaters, Bermuda shorts, crackled vinyl coats, fur trimmed coats and tweed cropped pants were presented.

I loved the wedge-heel loafers in a crocodile leather finish. My friend has dubbed them ‘flatforms’, which I’m taking as my own.

Key accessories included flatforms, metal and Plexiglas necklaces and bracelets, beanie hats and satin ankle strap peep-toes.

Favourites: Colour-block dress and cotton shirt with fur jacket and wool muslin skirt

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Emma Stone, Lily Collins, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Chloe Sevigny and Amber Heard

Jennifer Love Hewitt would’ve turned a few heads at the Art Of Elysium “Heaven” Gala in LA last night.

Call me crazy, but there is something about her Paula Ka Black Carpet Collection gown that I actually like.

Her black strapless gown with an exaggerated white bow detail does look like the model is about to give birth to 10lbs of white satin, but it’s something different and unpredictable from Jennifer.

It not safe and boring like most of her usual red carpet looks.

The look was complete with a chic updo and a Kelly Locke ‘Mimi’ clutch.

Pretty In Pink Award
Selena Gomez not only walked the red carpet at the 2011 People’s Choice Awards last night, but she also performed.

She looked adorable on the red carpet wearing a Paule Ka dress.

The pretty pink dress has a frothy ruffled detail cascading from her shoulder.

She added nude Giuseppe Zanotti heels and a black Kotur clutch to complete her look.

During her performance of “A Year Without Rain” with her band ‘The Scene’, Selena wore a stunning Irina Shabayeva print dress with Isharya jewels.

The rise and fall hem dress revealed her gorgeous nude Christian Louboutin ‘Brandaplato’ sandals.

These are two great looks from Selena. I love how she’s transitioning very slowing and with sophistication from a young star to a confident young lady.

Which do you prefer?

Sofia Vergara looked very elegant at the Children’s Defense Fund California’s 20th Annual Beat The Odds Awards which was held at the Beverly Hills Hotel in LA last night.

The ‘Modern Family’ actress who is just as busty as Salma Hayek proved that you can look sexy and chic without the twins being on display.

Her Paule Ka navy satin and black crepe one-shoulder dress showed off her gorgeous curves beautifully.

She teamed her look with a navy clutch and grey animal print YSL Tribtoo pumps.

A lesson to Salma that there is a happy medium.
