Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Kirsten Dunst attended the 2011 Museum of Contemporary Art Gala, which was held on Saturday night in LA.

The actress is the first to wear a look from the Rodarte Spring 2012 collection.

This is no surprise to any of us considering she’s long been the muse to Kate and Laura Mulleavy.

The relationship has been a long and successful one, but I’m on the fence on this occasion.

I usually find it hard to warm to shapeless dresses, but this aqua tulle strapless empire gown with its metallic navy swirl embroidery has me intrigued.

I think I’m blinded by how beautiful Kirsten is with her flawless makeup and 40s hairstyle.

A black Chanel bow-accented clutch, diamond floral earrings, and matching diamond bracelet completed her look.

Are you on the fence like me? Or do you love it or hate it?

Saoirse Ronan attended the Toronto Film Festival Premiere of her latest movie “Violet & Daisy” held at The Elgin theatre recently.

The young actress looked angelic in a seaform Rodarte Spring 2008 dress.

Her pretty pleated silk chiffon dress features lace panels around the waist and bodice plus decorative feathers and Swarovski elements on the shoulders.

Saoirse accessorized with nude peep-toe heels and baby blue nail polish.

She wore her hair in a pretty, simple style and donned a hint of pink lipstick.

This is a beautiful look for the Irish actress.

I much prefer her approach to style than some of her peers.

Chloe Moretz take notes.

The Rodarte sisters – Kate and Laura Mulleavy showcased 10 couture gowns, inspired by Fra Angelico’s frescoes in the monks’ cells at the Convent of San Marco, during the Pitti Immagine event in Florence, Italy last night.

They took along their favourite gal pal Kirsten Dust for support.

Hopefully the actress was picking out key looks for her next red carpet event.

Kirsten wore a Rodarte raw silk woven blouse with the signature Peter Pan collar from the Spring 2011 collection.

The blouse was teamed with a matching skirt and a caramel hand carved leaf and embossed leather belt.

Her look is so chic, yet relaxed for the occasion.

I find myself obsessed with workmanship which has gone into the belt.

It looks like Kirsten Dunst heard your pleas, because she opted for Rodarte tonight when she arrived on the red carpet for the “Melancholia” Premiere during the 2011 Cannes Film Festival this evening.

This marks a Cannes debut for Rodarte.

Kiki’s polka dot haltered mermaid Fall 2011 dress with a forest green wool bodice was a beautiful choice for an evening premiere.

I love the Swarovski crystal embellished zipper down the side of the dress, which is a beautiful way to disguise a zipper unlike some of the unsightly exposed zippers we usually see.

The emerald cuff was a perfect touch.

Love the smoky eyes.

Saoirse Ronan gave us something different to the gowns and mermaid hemlines at the 2011 Met Gala.

She opted to wear a Rodarte Fall 2011 look.

The red crepe collared jacket which drapes at the back was teamed with a red embroidered sequin skirt.

I wish she’d found better shoes to complement her look.

These silver Tabitha Simmons ‘Dixie’ heels aren’t working for me.
