Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Shoes Upstaged Your Dress Award
“Pretty Little Liars” actress Lucy Hale also opted for ankle boots on the red carpet at the 2010 Teen Choice Awards.

The cute brunette wore a Paule Ka LBD with a chiffon skirt, sequin embellished bodice and belt detailing at the shoulder and the waist.

As much as her dress has some much interesting detailing, her Ruthie Davis Spike Dark GaGa heels steal the limelight.

These shoes are not for the faint hearted and I would advise that you wear these bad boys at your own risk.

The spike ankle boots, or shoetie as the designer calls them are embellished with Swarovski crystal embellishments.

I first saw these heels at the Dennis Basso Fall 2010 presentation and instantly imagine them on Rihanna or Lady GaGa.

Who would’ve thought this cutie would be the first to wear them.

The 2010 Teen Choice Awards airs on FOX tonight at 8:00-10:00 PM (ET/PT).

Last week we saw Jennifer Lopez change up to 3 times a day during her promotional tour for “The Back-Up Plan” in the US.

This week she’s touring Europe.

With the news that her movie has been panned by the critics, Jennifer still looked in good spirits at the photocall in Paris which was held on the balcony of the Hotel Crillon.

Jennifer opted for a Paule Ka white ensemble consisting of a fitted cropped jacket with a wide belt and full skirt.

Let’s start with the something positive.  It’s a nice sunny day in Paris.

Now before I get to those heels, I want to say that the cropped jacket doesn’t work for me.

Had it been open it may have felt less restricted and therefore maybe more appealing.

The voluminous skirt is cute, but it fails to flatter Jennifer.

Now those heels.  Just when I thought we’d finally seen the last of those 2007 YSL Tribute platforms, they are back to haunt the red carpet once again.

The problem isn’t just because they are the Tribute heels, the problem is mostly because they are black and that they are killing anything good about this look.

Black pumps, with a white ensemble on a warm sunny day in Paris?  Really?

Oh Jenny.  You’ve gone from a 10 from last week to a 4.

Let’s hope you redeem yourself at the premiere.

After this photocall Jennifer when shopping for her two-year-old twins at Jacadi a famous Parisian clothes shop for babies and children.

Jaime King most definitely stood out on the red carpet at the “Kick-Ass” LA premiere last night.

Her fuchsia pink Paule Ka Spring 2008 dress was not only bright in colour, but it had bold 80s style shoulder pads.

I wish she had posed better in this satin dress, because we can’t see the draped details on the side of this dress.

A hand on the hip and a confident pose could have been the difference to make me love this look on her.

The actress did pick interesting accessorises pairing her dress with a gold Jimmy Choo ‘Cara’ glitter clutch and champagne Jimmy Choo ‘Grant’ heels with a crystal detail on the ankle strap.

Her hair and make-up are flawless.

Amber Heard looked gorgeous wearing a white Paule Ka Fall 2009 mini dress to the LA premiere of “Zombieland” back in September last year.

She glows in white with her LA tan and sophisticated up-do.

I’m usually not a  fan of black shoes with a white dress, but I don’t actually mind her Dior Couture Spring 2008 wedges which she paired with a black clutch.

Jennifer Carpenter wore the same dress earlier this year to the SAG Awards in LA.

It’s a great look on her, but the black pumps are way too heavy for this look.

For wearing better shoes and showing some originality Amber wins this one for me.

Actress Odette Yustman wore this black and white Paule Ka dress from the Spring 2010 Black Carpet Collection to the “InStyle Golden Globes” after-party in LA.

I think this dress is really cute and quirky. I love how Odette has matched her shoes to the metallic waistband on her dress.

Singer Brandy wore the same dress a couple of weeks later to Motown’s Grammy Nominee Party in LA.

Her hair and make up is flawless here.

She pairs her dress with a heavy bangle and I’m loving the t-bar design of her heels which makes her look more interesting.

Odette looks great but Brandy is outstanding, so she wins this one for me.

R&B stars Kelly Rowland and Brandy put on their best glad rags to attend the Motown Grammy after-party held at the W hotel in Los Angeles hotel this week.

Kelly’s attendance may confirm that she’s signed her new record deal with Motown.

Kelly sported a very very bad wig, but I do like her Basil Soda Spring 2009 Couture dress.

The plunging jewel encrusted dress had a satin tiered skirt.  The singer complemented the dress with nude heels and a matching clutch.

Brandy opted for something with a bit of sass and sex appeal.

She wore a Paule Ka bustier dress from the Spring 2010 black carpet collection.

The dress with a white draped skirt and a charcoal sash tied to the waist, was paired with an interesting pair of black strappy sandals.

If this was a who looked better? contest, Brandy would win.
