Ashley Tisdale In Rafael Cennamo – 2013 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards

Ashley Tisdale In Rafael Cennamo - 2013 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards

Ashley Tisdale joined a host of stars on the red carpet at the USC Galen Center in LA yesterday evening for the 2013 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.

As always I have a strong feeling of déjà vu when it comes to Ashley, as she always seems to wear different versions of the same fitted mini dress. Her style and overall look hasn’t seemed to evolve since her High School Musical days.

On this occasion the actress wore a Rafael Cennamo Spring 2013 dress.

The seafoam and mint free-embroidered dress with an illusion neckline is far too prissy for the 27-year-old actress and part of me thinks this dress may have worked better on an ice rink than a red carpet.

To make matters worse, she added a copper-coloured Rebecca Minkoff ‘Vincent’ clutch which has no business being anywhere near this dress.

The only thing I like about this look are her silver mirrored Jerome C. Rousseu ‘Popp’ sandals.

Is there anything you like about this look?

Christa B. Allen In Rafael Cennamo – 15th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards

Christa B Allen In Rafael Cennamo - 15th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards

Christa B. Allen shined on the red carpet at the 15th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards last night in Beverly Hills, California.

The ‘Revenge’ actress wore a gown from the Rafael Cennamo Fall 2013 collection.

The actress looks fresh-faced and beautiful in this flattering gold brocade gown. The voluminous skirt looks youthful and fashion-forward, while the appliquéd bodice is just the right amount of sexy.

Keeping her her makeup fresh and simple, the star lets her gown be the star of the show and doesn’t look like she’s trying too hard to make a statement.

Sadly, when compared to the model I prefer the shorter length of the dress. Also with that decorative bodice wearing her hair up was mandatory.

Vanessa Hudgens In Rafael Cennamo – ‘Spring Breakers’ Paris Premiere

Vanessa Hudgens In Rafael Cennamo - 'Spring Breakers' Paris PremiereVanessa Hudgens put on her party best for the ‘Spring Breakers’ Paris premiere at Le Grand Rex on Monday.

She took to the red carpet dressed in a Rafael Cennamo dress from the Spring 2013 collection.

The strapless creation was a riff on the lookbook version, cutting the floor-sweeping length to an above-the-ankle hem and inverting the soft colour palette to a harsher, less sophisticated contrast of black and ballet pink.

The effect caused the rosette embellishment to appear more like dark spots than dainty petals.

I also missed the edge of the metallic belt, but that would have overwhelmed the pretty and petite Vanessa even more.

An elaborate updo, dagger-shaped black-lacquered nails, and heavy black, rosette-topped pumps were the over-the-top finishes to this look.

Yes, girls just wanna have fun. But, here, the fun seemed too twee and appeared more suited to a prom princess than a red-carpet starlet.

Katy Perry In Rafael Cennamo – Pre-Grammy Gala Honoring L.A. Reid

Katy Perry RC

Katy Perry made a sparkling impression at the 2013 Annual Grammy Awards-Pre-Grammy Gala and Salute To Industry Icons honoring L.A. Reid yesterday in California last night.

This year’s Best Pop Solo Performance Grammy-nominated singer’s red-carpet portfolio has definitely experienced a very welcomed upgrade.

While the singer has come to dial down some of her quirkiness in favour of striking glamour, Perry’s cream long sleeve body-hugging Rafael Cennamo Fall 2013 ornate gown, with all-over peal embellishment and train, lacked some much needed oomph for this pop princess.

Perhaps a bolder hue would have kicked this look up a notch.

Hopefully the singer will find a more successful look for this evening’s award show that will meld a touch of her original style and her new found elegance.

Amandla Stenberg In Rafael Cennamo – 2013 NAACP Image Awards

Amandla Stenberg In Rafael Cennamo - 2013 NAACP Image Awards

Amandla Stenberg brought her delightful smile to the red carpet at The Shrine Auditorium in California on Friday evening, for the 2013 NAACP Image Awards.

Older stars could take style tips from this pint-sized fashionista, as the ‘Hunger Games’ cutie is one of the many teens taking the red carpet by storm at the moment.

Amandla selected an ivory Rafael Cennamo Spring 2012 dress accented with floral appliqués for the occasion.

Her pretty frock was styled with a gorgeous pair of Louis Vuitton gold sequin ankle strap kitten heels, which added a touch of pizzazz to her look.

I love her high, curly bun accented with a silver hair band which complemented her Bavna jewels.

Hannah Simone In Rafeal Cennamo – 2013 Producers Guild Awards

Hannah Simone In Rafeal Cennamo - 2013 Producers Guild Awards

Hannah Simone attended the 2013 Producers Guild Awards, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California yesterday evening.

The ‘New Girl’ actress stunned wearing a Rafeal Cennamo Pre-Fall 2013 gown for the occasion.

Her strapless electric-blue strapless gown with a side slit and draped bodice set this red carpet, made up of mostly black gowns, alight.

The colour is gorgeous for her olive skin-tone and her choice to go easy on the accessories was a smart one. I can’t even fault her black pumps on this occasion as I love the look.
