Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Despite being the human equivalent to a magpie and being instantly attracted to anything the sparkles, I’m not in love with Diane Kruger’s embellished Miu Miu mini dress as I don’t think it flatters her.

I feel like tugging the skirt down as it sits too high for my liking.

She completed her vixen look with bright red lips and black strappy heels.

Diane’s co-star Mélanie Laurent faired much better wearing a Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2009 Couture black ensemble.

The look consisted of a black pencil skirt, patent waist belt and a sheer halter top, which she lined from the runway version.

Black peep-toes and a black Christian Louboutin clutch completed the look.

Love the look, but I’m not at all crazy about her hair.

Michelle Monaghan looked outstanding wearing a navy blue Rachel Roy Resort 2010 dress with sculptural peaked shoulders.

The bold shoulder is not an easy look to pull off, but Michelle does with ease.

Manolo Blahnik white strappy sandals and a silver cuff complete the look.

Rachel Roy modified Spring 2009 strapless dress to become a spaghetti strapped taupe dress with a less revealing metallic neckline.

Her look is made more interesting with a chunky silver necklace from Michael Kors Fall 2009 collection.

I like designers like Rachel, Donatella Versace and recently Georgina Chapman who modify their own designs to make them more individual.  Take notes Mrs B.

I LOVE Agyness Deyn here.

For once the British model looks glamorous even though she’s wearing a Rocky Horror Show t-shirt.

There’s something about the neatness of her look that I’m drawn too. The sleek bob, the pencil skirt, the red Lulu Guinness lips clutch, her gold strappy Méchante of London’s ‘Elektra’ Rose python heels and the cleanliness of it all.

Not a hint of grunge in sight.

Alexa Chung’s style is not to my liking, but I do appreciate her shirt with a studded collar, plus her H&M skirt, but I can’t bare the greasy hair.

I don’t understand how greasy hair became so trendy.

Actress Julia Stiles looked smart and chic wearing a white satin dress, with an ivory criss cross detail that goes across her back.

She paired her dress with gold gladiator sandals and a white clutch.

Olivia Palermo bucked the short and sassy trend at this event and opted for a ruffled maxi Kate Moss for Topshop dress.

Although she does look elegant and she has added a pony tail to her trademark hairstyle, I can’t help feel a bit bored by her look.

The edgy New Yorker appears to have soften her look.

Melissa George made a huge statement wearing a bold red dress to this screening.

The star was very sophisticated in scarlet as she added black accessories including a studded peep-toes.

Eva Amurri where is your bra?

With twins like those they need support.

Emmanuelle Chriqui at least wore a bra, even though I can see it under her white Kain Label Pocket Tee.

Her electric blue clutch punches up her laid-back look.

Socialite Fabiola Beracasa channels her inner Victoria Beckham wearing a ridiculous headband whilst ruining her gorgeous plum Alexander Wang one-sleeve jersey dress.

With her newly plumped lips Lindsay Lohan walked the red carpet looking a disheveled mess, but then what’s new about that?

I’m sure the actress got many calls from Britney Spears last night, asking for her ratty extensions back.

Kate Winslet walked red carpet at this screening, in support of her husband Sam Mendes, for his latest movie “Away We Go”.

The Brit Oscar winner opted to wear a gorgeous black Stella McCartney Fall 2009 dress, with vintage lace sheer sleeves, and a ruffled detail around the neckline.

She is the picture of sophistication, as the dress delightfully skims her curves, but the “Croydon facelift” ruins this look for me. Her hair is slicked back too tight for my liking.

Even as I marvel at her fresh-faced glow, I wish she had opted for a simple classy updo.

The look was complete with Louboutins peep-toes, with a white platforms.

“Two and a Half Men”, is one of my favourite TV shows, and I love the character Rose, played by Melanie Lynskey.

I really love her colourful Rachel Roy Pre-Fall 2009 asymmetrical top, with a peplum at the waist.

Unfortunately the grey suede ankle strap heels, kill this look for me.

MoMA’s Party in the Garden, Memorial Day fundraiser weekend lasted for four days. The Tuesday night event, featured performances from DJ Cassidy and Estelle.

The Brit singer arrived wearing an Alexander McQueen printed dress from the Spring 2009 collection, with a black leather belt, black peep-toes and a bronze cuff.

If you’re thinking it’s the same Alexander McQueen dress Camilla Belle wore to the Push LA premiere, I would say you’re half right, because it’s the same print, but not the same dress.

Camilla’s was more fitted, whereas Estelle’s is longer and drapes at the front.

Estelle performed a 45-minute set, wearing a modified Rachel Roy Spring 2009 dress.  The major modifications were the tribal print bodice, and the nude blouson sleeves.

This softer, delectable look, is a huge contrast to her edgier red carpet look, and it’s a look I much prefer.

She kicked off her set with her single “No Substitute for Love”, and then worked her way through some classic soul, and a cover of Coldplay’s “God Put a Smile Upon Your Face.”

She finished her performance the only way she could, with her smash hit “American Boy.”
