Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Last night was a great night for fashion.

Those of you who complained that last week was fashion lite, got your wish granted for more great celeb looks this week.

Everyone (excluding one person) gave us something to marvel and Hilary Duff was no exception.

The former ‘Gossip Girl’ actress looked amazing as she walked the red carpet at the “Good Housekeeping 125th Anniversary Party” in New York.

I adore her Vera Wang Spring 2010 tulle dress.

It’s so elegant yet so whimsical.  Like a modern day tinkerbell.

I prefer her dress as she has less of the black tulle on the skirt and her asymmetrical bodice appears to be shorter than the runway dress.

The jewel accent on her shoulder is quite spectacular.

Some of you have expressed that you are bored of nude pumps on the red carpet, but I think her Brian Atwood pumps work perfectly with this look.

I can barely pick a Best Dressed out of today, so BDOTW is going to be impossible.

Mila Kunis was one of the many who attended Vera Wang’s LA boutique opening party.

She was the best dressed at the event imo, looking absolutely gorgeous in her black strapless Vera Wang Fall 2010 dress.

Normally not a fan of the side ponytail but I do love how very simple, elegant and stylishly it fits with her look.

Her two-tone strapless black dress which she pairs with black strappy sandals, has a gathered detail on the bodice and tulip skirt.

Looking at the runway model, I wish she’d worn that stunning necklace too.

I’ve often wondered why celebs don’t wear Vera Wang on the red carpet.

She makes wearable stylish pieces, but I guess celebs just needed to be formally introduced to her work. Hence Ms Wang throwing a store launch party in LA last night.

Renee Zellweger put her best Jimmy Choo clad foot forward wearing a burgundy ruched strapless Vera Wang Fall 2010 top paired with a black pencil skirt.

For once I don’t feel a sense of de ja vu when looking at Renee.

I love this look, but did she have to wear so many gold rings.

It’s very BA Baracus from the A Team to wear that many gold rings.

The models in Vera Wang’s Fall 2010 presentation all sported Snooki style beehives. Who knew Snooki would start a trend.

The other thing that dawned on me was the familiarity of some of the pieces. Lanvin sprang to mind.

“The Bride Wore Black” was the title of this collection, and she wore a lot of it. There were also touches of petrol blue and ivory.

Wang was inspired by film noir as “a contemporary metaphor for youth, romance, and sophistication.”

The collection had sleek silhouettes, sporting underpinnings and ultra feminine elements which pleased the crowd.

I particularly liked the cute mini dresses especially the ones with the fairy like tulle skirts.

On Trend Award
White was the trend colour of the night, and colour of Kyra Sedgwick’s stunning Vera Wang gown.

I love the jeweled detail and the grey sash across the waist.

The grey detail across the bodice bothered until I concluded that the gown may have looked too bridal without it.

The beautiful actress added Fred Leighton jewels to her look.

Thanks to Laura and Mahima for pointing out that this dress is similar to the Vera Wang gown America Ferrera wore to the 2009 SAG Awards.
