Elle Style Awards 2008

Elle Style Icon winner Kate Hudson has been brightening up our red carpets since she arrived in London. She does not shy way in this white Derek Lam Fall 2007 keyhole gown.

She could have done without the jewels.

Best Actress winner Keira Knightley went back to Chanel last night, wearing a black dress from the Chanel Pre-Fall 2008 collection.

I love the brooch detail, but I hate the hair and I have been long over that pout.

Woman of The Year could have gone to no other woman but Kylie Minogue. She is such a survivor.

After a few mishaps in little known designers, she went back to the men who dress her best – Dolce & Gabbana.

This olive Grecian gown is from their Dolce & Gabbana Pre-Fall 2008 collection.

Lily Allen has worn Prada Resort 2008 two nights in a row now. I guess she loves their designs.

What I don’t love here is her hair. It is like something out of the 1950s.

UK TV presenter Alexa Chung looks so cute in this pink velvet Luella Spring 2007 strapless multi-tiered mini dress.

Naomi Campbell another Dolce & Gabbana faithful wore this Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2008 strapless mini dress.

She presented Best British Designer to Jonathan Saunders, who showed his Fall 2008 in New York this month.

Roisin Murphy is head to toe in Givenchy Spring 2008. Her boots will no doubt have the Olsen sisters drooling.

Sophie Ellis Bextor wore this very interesting dress from Erdem Spring 2008 collection. On most people this dress would be very busy around the neckline, but as Sophia has a long neck it is not a problem for her.

Georgina Chapman always looks fantastic in her clothes. This jumpsuit is from her Marchesa Fall 2008 collection.

Katherine Jenkins is the first person I have seen in the this dove grey moon dress from RM by Roland Mouret Fall 2007 collection.

This dress hugs her curves beautifully.

Emilia Fox shimmers on a forties style full length sequined gown.

Jamelia is ALWAYS in Dolce & Gabbana. Unlike most stars who mix it up a little.

So bored of her.

Twiggy shocks me here in this gold sequined mini dress. But then I shouldn’t really be shocked as she is a style icon.

Naomi Harris opts for a satin orange mini dress with a black belt.

Kimberly Stewart has turned down the hooch, and is dressing more sophisticated these days and it really suits her.

Glad she stopped hanging out with Paris Hilton.

KT Tunstall looks like she missed the boat to audition for Bee Movie.

Agyness Deyn is wearing a lot of bright colours in this Henry Holland ensemble, the trouble is – as always – she is trying too hard.

Kelly Brook also opted for a full length Grecian gown in turquoise.

star Michelle Ryan wears a fuchsia pink silk gypsy style gown which for me is not working.

2008 Grammy Awards Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
Fergie was amazing last night. This is truly the best I have ever seen her. She was glowing in her newly-engaged bliss, wearing a canary yellow Calvin Klein strapless gown with Cartier diamonds that completed the look.

Does anyone else think that her lady lumps appear to be slightly bigger?

Risk That Paid Off Award
Rihanna has been sporting a few looks that have not worked best in her favour, but this one did.

It is not an easy dress by Zac Posen to pull off with its feathers, ruffles and folds, but she worked it out.

I was not liking the neon nail polish though.

Most Improved Award
This weekend Natasha Bedingfield sported some hair and make-up disasters, but she pulled together for the Grammys, wearing this stunning lavender Reem Acra Spring 2008 strapless belted gown.

Best Floral Award
I loved this Zuhair Murad Spring 2008 gown. Carrie Underwood was bang on trend with the florals, but was slightly underwhelmed by her hair. Carrie has great hair, but on this occasion it fell a little flat in comparison to her hair at the Pre-Grammy’s Party.

Best Embellishments Award
Corinne Bailey Rae could not look more bored at this event, but I just loved her Luella Spring 2008 dress which was mostly made up of blue poppies.

Best Rock Chick Award
I LOVED Cyndi Lauper last night. She was full of energy and enthusiasm, unlike a lot of her contemporaries.

For 54 years young, this woman looked amazing. I am glad she is still as effervescent as ever.

Best Black Award
Faith Hill always looks amazing and elegant, and did not disappoint wearing a Valentino Spring 2008 one-shouldered gown.

Best Teen Award
Miley Cyrus is showing that she can look grown up and cute all at the same time wearing this white layered Celine Spring 2007 mini dress with Sergio Rossi sequined heels.

Best Over 50 Award
Yes Natalie Cole is over 50 and looks amazing in this printed dress.

Best On Stage Ensemble
Beyonce looked amazing rocking out in a very obviously lip-syned performance in this modified Armani Privé Fall 2007 Couture ensemble.

2008 Grammy Awards Worst Dressed

Worst Statement Dress Award
I know Kelis is promoting her husband’s album, but I do not approve of using this word for self promotion or use of this word in any context.

So trashy.

Worst Hair Award
Alicia Keys was not the worst dressed, in fact I loved the colour on her amazing custom-made Giorgio Armani Privé halter-neck gown.

What I did not like was the hair. She just ruined everything with the hair. Why a mohawk for such a pretty dress?

Worst Dressed Award
No I am not a Beyonce hater. This dress just did not work for me at all and I love Elie Saab.

The asymmetrical bodice and the dripping metallic detail was over-kill, without that this dress may have worked.

I am surprised that from all the dresses in Elie Saab Spring 2008 Couture collection that she choose this one.

I also did not like the hair. I know she was channeling Tina Turner, but I hated it.

Worst Black Award
Aren’t trains supposed to be on the back of dresses?

Fantasia dress was just too much for her. She tried to go Hollywood glam, when she should have stuck to her edgy roots and opted for something a little more funkier.

Worst Floral Award
Lil Mama should have saved her Chanel dress for this occasion.

Least Flattering Award
Unfortunately for Nelly Furtaro this cerulean strapless Arthur Mendonca gown made her look very wide at the hips.

Worst Pageant Fancy Dress/Bridesmaid Award
Urgh…just hideous. This dress that Taylor Swift wore was just to sickly sweet for me and the leaf-embellished skirt was too much.

Worst On Stage Outfit
Good girl gone bad for Rihanna in this Zac Posen Spring 2008 dress. She looks like the straw-man from the Wizard of Oz.

oOpS Award
Debbie Matenopolous announced to the world that the designer of Carrie Underwood’s dress was Badgley Mischka, which was incorrect. To make matters worst she then went onto say that she had seen the floral dress at their recent Fall 2008 New York Fashion Week show.

The fact of the matter was that the dress Carrie was wearing, was by the same designer – Zuhair Murad – that she was wearing. Once informed she desperately tried to make a retracting but the damage was already done. Zuhair Murad has dressed Debbie for other occasions, but I guess this will be her last.

2008 BAFTA Awards

Kate Hudson was by far the best dressed at the BAFTA Awards tonight in this gold metallic Christian Dior gown. It was even better in real life.

Followed closely by Keira Knightley in Valentino Spring 2008 Couture, which is surprising considering she is the face of Chanel.

She will definitely win the Best Female Actress Award, so I would have thought she would have worn Chanel. Just goes to prove you just can’t always predict these things.

I must say I was very surprised that Emily Blunt chose this turquoise sequined Marc Bouwer Spring 2008 one-shouldered gown.

Although it is stunning and fits her body like a glove, I would have expected her to have worn a bigger name designer.

Thandie Newton is a sheer knockout in this black satin Alexander McQueen Spring 2008 asymmetric fuschia accented gown.

I am not a fan of lace, and I would have preferred if this dress was without it, but Thandie makes it work.

I admire Tilda Swinton for taking on this Christian Dior Spring 2008 Couture dress, but unfortunately for her, the dress wore her.

The dress had too much going on at the back, that it made her look like a ninja turtle with a shell or back-pack on her back.

There were better dresses from this collection she could have chosen.

Sienna Miller surprisingly went for a plain black dress from Christian Dior Spring 2008 collection.

I loved the detail on the back of this dress.

Poor Sienna, she would not have known as she tried her dress on, that with the fierce paparazzi flashes would expose her the fact that she did not wear any underwear.

French actress Marion Cotillard should have a contract with Chanel, because she wears their clothes so well.

Here she is wearing a sequined Chanel Fall 2007 Couture mini dress with an attached cape.

What a boring suck ass dress.

This is Dior and you would not believe it as Galliano is know for making dramatic, interesting dresses but on Jessica Biel, BORING.

Eva Green is also wearing a black Dior Spring 2008 gown, but with much more style and grace.

This RM by Roland Mouret Spring 2008 dress that Rosamund Pike is wearing, is not really a red carpet dress.

This is something I would wear to a meeting or on a date, but definitely not on the red carpet as gorgeous as it is.

This is a stunning turquoise Escada Spring 2008 dress on Naomi Harris, I just hate her hairstyle.

I am in pure lust with UK TV presenter Myleene Klass’ satin lavender dress.

Girlfriend sure knows how to show off her dress to maximum effect.

28.01.08 Best Dressed

Screen Actors Guild Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award

Amanda Bynes on her first major awards ceremony stood out from all the other veterans wearing this gorgeous Marchesa 2008 Resort strapless embellished gown.

Love the hair, but might have been better pulled back.

Joint Best Colour Award

This strapless cobalt blue L’Wren Scott Spring 2008 gown on Kyra Sedgwick was pure perfection.

Kyra has an amazing body, and this dress showed it off.

Joint Best Colour Award

These pictures do not do Vanessa Williams bright canary yellow Escada gown any justice. I was more even more vivid on TV.

Everything here is perfect, excluding her tan lines.

Best Over 50 Award

Glenn Close is stunning. Amazing for her 60 years.

I wish Meryl Streep would dress like this on the red carpet.

Risk That Paid Off Award

I know most of you probably hated this dress on Sandra Oh, but I loved it.

She took a risk by not choosing a major well known designer, but for me it works.

I loved the bow and the colours.

Most Fashion Forward Award

None of the other ladies on the red carpet would have dared to wear this sculpted Nina Ricci Spring 2008 strapless gown, and that is why I love Ellen Pompeo.

Best Embellishments Award

Debra Messing in Oscar de la Renta Spring 2008 stepped away from her usual black and her usual Michael Kors.

I loved the embellishments on the dress the first time I saw it on the runway, but I never picture Debra wearing it, but she does pull it off.

Best Haute Couture Award

Despite not going to any of the Haute Couture Fashion Shows at Paris Fashion Week last week, Christina still managed to get this Elie Saab Fall 2007 gown.

In typical Elie Saab fashion, the gown is embellished and uber glamourous.

Best Red Carpet Pose Award

No one can do that “sticking your ass out, while looking over your shoulder seductively pose” quite like Eva Longoria. So it was no wonder she chose a sexy Naeem Khan Spring 2008 backless dress to show of her derrière.

I am glad that there are no bangs in sight, and I see that Eva continues to favour the curly do for red carpet appearances.

Joint Best Black Award

Sans her fiance Michael Bolton, Nicollette Sheridan was stunning on the red carpet last night wearing a black strapless Marchesa gown.

This is by far the best I have ever seen her look.

Joint Best Black Award

Ana Oritz was smokin’ hot in this Pamela Dennis black body hugging gown.

Best Arm Candy Award

Keisha Whittaker looked so cute wearing this bubble gum pink Jenny Packham Spring 2008 sweetheart necklined gown.

She is always the perfect accessory for Forest Whittaker.

Most Improved Award

Brittany Snow has had a very inconsistent red carpet of late, but she looks great here in this Zuhair Murad sequined gown.

Best Pre-Fall 2008 Dress Award

Most Pre-Fall 2008 dresses are not usually red carpet ready, but Teri Hatcher looks divine in this floral Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2008 fishtailed gown.

I laughed when she was interviewed and she said that the did not believe in botox.

Best White Award

Becki Newton is back to her best wearing an Elsie Katz Couture white sequined dress.

I particularly love the tiered skirt.

Best Jewels Award

I loved Sara Ramirez’ jewels by H. Stern and Bo Chic. Her earrings were a perfect compliment to her satin strapless fuschia Angel Sanchez Spring 2008 gown.

Meh…Just OK Award

Ashely Tisdale stood up well on such a big stage wearing this white Badgley Mischka Spring 2008 dress.

Back To Her Best Award

Marion Cotillard looks beautifully chic in this corseted, pleated, and gathered Nina Ricci Spring 2008 gown.



Best Hair Award

Marcia Cross is wearing a Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2008 teal gown. I think the colour works well with her red hair.

Best Colour Block Award

Jamie-Lynn Sigler is wearing an ensemble from Calvin Klein. The teal skirt is from the Calvin Klein Pre-Fall 2008 collection.

28.01.08 Worst Dressed

Screen Actors Guild Awards – Worst Dressed



Worst Statement Dress Award

OK Angelina Jolie is obviously wearing this vintage Hermes strapless free flowing dress in an attempt to hide her pregnancy. Yawn.



Worst Dressed Award

Tilda Swinton has a very unique androgynous style, but she should have lost the jacket or opted for a cropped version.

Most Disappointing Award

This hurts.

I tried to love it, but I just could not.

Cate Blanchett, my fashion favourite really let me down last night, despite this dress being Balenciaga.

Worst Colour Award

America Ferrera on the red carpet again wearing Monique Lhuillier.

The partnership has worked very well so far, but on this occasion this dress falls flat for me. I really dislike the colour.

I have not seen America on the red carpet since November, and I expected more from her.

Worst Embellishments Award

Jane Krakowski should have worn her hair back, as the embellishments on this Catherine Malandrino Spring 2008 halter gown totally dominate it.

It also looks like she has a bowl of fruit around her neck.

Worst Dress / Shoes Combo Award

I admire the fact that Chandra Wilson wanted to try something different from the standard gown, but this sequined dress did not work for me, neither did the shoes.

Had the dress been in one colour, maybe I would have liked it more.

It’s Not Working Award

Rebecca Romijn can do so much better, this colour on this Roberto Cavalli 2008 Resort dress is too dark and not at all flattering for her.

For me Rebecca is more of a bubble gum pink type of girl.

Worst Hair Award

Kate Hudson is wearing a beautiful strapless Balmain Spring 2008 floral gown with beaded detail, but I am not keen on the dress as an red carpet event dress.

I am also disliking her hair.

Time To Find A New Stylist Award

I am just not sure about this material for Nikki Blonsky. The style is OK, but it may have been better if it was empire waisted.

Back To Black Award

This is a really nice Zac Posen dress, but I am beyond bored of Ellen Page in black, and that is why she is in this category.

Worst D List Award

Lisa Rinna is trying to grab attention in this Jenny Packham Spring 2008 animal print dress, but just comes off desperate.

She has dressed so much better in the past on the red carpet, so this is very disappointing.

Most Boring Award

For a young girl, Andrea Bowen should be experimenting more.

22.12.07 Best Of

Most Consistent On The Red Carpet In 2007 – Thandie Newton


Thandie Newton was nothing short of perfection on the red carpet this year.

She was fabulous on red carpet wearing Giles at the British Fashion Awards, the next night she was in New York for the Grand Reopening Celebration of the New Museum wearing Calvin Klein, not doubt jet-lagged, but not showing it in her appearance as she was flawless as always.

She is a designers dream, and has not forgotten British designers like, Giles Deacon and Jonathan Saunders, who she regularly wears on the red carpet. I bet they repay her with lots of free clothes.

Some girls get all the luck.
