Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Lizzy Caplan is an American actress best known for her TV roles in the CBS show ‘The Class’ and HBO’s ‘True Blood’ (2008), plus she’s starred in movies such as ‘Mean Girls’ (2004) and ‘Cloverfield’ (2008).

The 30-year-old actress has suddenly come back on our radar with a shorter hairstyle, attending two premieres and a photocall within the last five days.

She started her red-carpet comeback at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre last Thursday at ‘The Campaign’ premiere wearing an on-trend white crop top and a Rachel Zoe A-line ‘Drew’ skirt from the designer’s Resort 2013 collection.

A blue satin Kotur clutch, matching blue nail polish, accessorized her look along with Dolce & Gabbana wedges.

Yesterday she attended the ‘Bachelorette’ photocall during the 65th Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland.

Whilst I applaud the artistic nature of her Lisa Ho tropical-print mini dress, I find her yellow-and-nude BCBG ‘Vera’ studded raffia sandals a bit of an eyesore.

By nightfall she was on the red carpet again, this time for the movie’s premiere, dressed in a signature Issa London dress.

Her emerald-green gathered dress was styled with copper Brian Atwood ‘Amelye’ sandals and a matching clutch.

On the last hour of the day, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge won your votes for best dressed this week.

Wearing a jade-green Jenny Packham gown, Catherine did what some of us thought impossible: she wowed us with a braided bun to boot.

A historic fashion moment indeed.

As much as I was seduced by the Duchess, I think it would have been a travesty of monumental portions had Karolina Kurkova not been recognized for “shutting down” the Met Gala this week.

The event was a total snooze without her, let’s face it.

Her Rachel Zoe creation is what BDOTY lists were made for.

Karolina Kurkova was a certified knock out on the red carpet at the 2012 Met Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City this evening.

The supermodel attended the event with Rachel Zoe, who designed this breathtaking creation.

Her custom long sleeve rose gold sequinned gown with open back and train has me borrowing Rachel’s famous catch phrase…”I DIE”, because I think I just did.

This is amazing. Supermodel amazing, Iman amazing, and no one does amazing quite like Iman, so this is high praise, indeed.

Karolina teamed her spectacular gown with a matching turban and a gold clutch.

This look just leap-frogged Elizabeth Banks for my best dressed of the night so far.

Nina Dobrev was at the Saban Theatre on Saturday to promote her TV series, ‘The Vampire Diaries’, during PaleyFest 2012 with her co-stars.

Even though the cast mostly wore black, Nina stood out wearing a cute Rachel Zoe ‘Kiki’ ruffle dress from the Resort 2012 collection.

The uber-cute feminine ruffled jacquard confection was teamed with an amazing pair of Jimmy Choo ‘Gail’ pony-skin leather-print sandals.

A sky-blue Rebecca Minkoff clutch and a wavy bun swept to the side completed her look.

This is a great look for Nina; she’s on a continual roll, but I wish the clutch was in a more standout colour like pink or red.

Stylist Rachel Zoe held her first runway show at the Hotel Empire on Saturday during New York Fashion Week.

The swanky location was fitting for her collection which paid homage to ’60s and ’70s rock n’ roll icons Marianne Faithfull and Mick Jagger.

Cue luxe faux-fur coats, blazers paired with floaty chiffon dresses, sharp tailored suits, sequined mini dresses, sweater dresses, flared pants and velvet tuxedos.

We also saw more jewelry on this occasion to give each look a rock n’ roll edge. Chunky chains and bangles with tassels adorned the models.

The rest of the accessories included over-the-knee boots with an embellished detail running down the back, clutches, over-sized totes and wide-brimmed hats. The only thing missing was Rachel’s trademark sunglasses.

Front Row: Olivia Palermo, Rodger Berman and Skyler Berman

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Shailene Woodley,Cameron Diaz, Molly Sims, Amber Heard, Selena Gomez, Mila Kunis, Evan Rachel Wood, Nikki Reed, Blake Lively, Liv Tyler and Sophia Bush

Elle Macpherson stepped out on Tuesday night to celebrate the 10th anniversary of her own Elle Macpherson Intimates collection at Selfridges in London.

The model-turned-designer wore a black tailored suit from the Rachel Zoe 2012 Resort collection.

We’re finding it difficult to tell the two pictures apart, as Elle copied the look almost exactly from the model look, blonde waves and all.

The cut and details of the suit are undeniably gorgeous, but as the star of the event, perhaps the model could have chosen a bit more glamorous look.

If anything, perhaps Elle could have taken a styling cue from Ms. Zoe herself and thrown on a major statement necklace and a nice bold lip.
