ARIA Awards 2013 Red Carpet Roundup

ARIA Awards 2013 Red Carpet Roundup

There were plenty more stars joining Alicia Keys and Jessica Mauboy on the red carpet for the 27th Annual ARIA Awards 2013 held at the Star in Sydney, Australia on Sunday evening.

Samantha Jade: The singer won her first ever ARIA award at this event, but sadly I don’t think she will be topping any best-dressed lists in her Steven Khalil red embroidered tutu dress. As cute as she believes it looks, I think it would be better suited on an ice rink.

Jessica Gomes: The model wore a sexy Dion Lee LBD with a leather bodice and fitted skirt, which she styled with black patent-leather sandals.

Sophie Falkiner: Now I’m all for a pop of colour in a red carpet look, but perhaps Sophie went overboard when styling her turquoise-and-black Ginger & Smart dress. The pink lips and necklace I can take, but both the neon-pink clutch and pumps were a step too far. If she had to keep one, I would keep the clutch.

Alicia Keys In Stella McCartney – ARIA Awards 2013

Alicia Keys In Stella McCartney - ARIA Awards 2013

Alicia Keys attended the 27th Annual ARIA Awards 2013 held at the Star in Sydney, Australia on Sunday evening.

The singer, who presented the Best Female Artist award at the event to Jessica Mauboy, wore a Stella McCartney racerback vivid-yellow gown accented with a wide gold belt for the occasion.

I’m sure many of you are feeling somewhat fatigued by this gown – considering we first saw this dress on Gwyneth Paltrow at the 2012 Grammy Awards, a version of this gown was the most-worn dress of 2012, and Michelle Dockery wore the black version of this gown just last week – but this bold hue revitalizes the look for me.

I love the clean lines and figure-hugging silhouette, the flaw-free makeup and the sexy quiffed ‘do; however, I’m trying not to be annoyed by the needless necklace.

You can buy a Alicia’s Stella McCartney Gown from Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.

Jessica Mauboy In Josh Goot – ARIA Awards 2013

Jessica Mauboy In Josh Goot - ARIA Awards 2013

In the US you have the American Music Awards, in the UK we have The Brit Awards, and in Australia they have the ARIA Awards with the crème de la crème of Australian music talent, including Jessica Mauboy who celebrated in the most colourful way possible yesterday evening.

The gorgeous popstar wore a Josh Goot Resort 2013 look featuring a strapless corset top with a structured silhouette and a multi-coloured flower print paired with a colour-block asymmetrical flared skirt with a copper leather panel.

There is a lot going on, which is why she kept the styling simple with an updo, subtle Bulgari jewels, neutral makeup and black Louboutin pumps; however, the model’s heels are much preferred – both the style and colour.

Her ensemble has so much character that I feel she let it down somewhat with the uninspiring footwear.

Do you agree?

Coco Rocha In Moschino & Kate Upton In Nina Ricci – VRC Oaks Club Luncheon

Coco Rocha In Moschino & Kate Upton In Nina Ricci - VRC Oaks Club Luncheon

Coco Rocha and Kate Upton donned their finest hats for the VRC Oaks Club Luncheon held at the Crown Palladium on Wednesday afternoon in Melbourne, Australia.

Coco Rocha: After donning some fashion-forward headpieces over the last few days, this one was quite conservative by her standards. The black Philip Treacy hat, angled to one side, was worn with a Moschino Pre-Fall 2013 look featuring a black embellished jacket and skirt and a cream blouse.

Kate Upton: Wearing a similar, yet smaller, hat to Coco, Kate worked an uptown-girl look wearing a cream Nina Ricci stretch wool-blend crepe jacket and matching skirt with cream Jimmy Choo ‘Xenia’ sandals and a red Chanel bag. I’m not fond of the accessories; they let down what could’ve been a great look. You may remember that Nicole Kidman has already worn the suit and Olivia Palermo has donned the jacket. So how does this look work for you the third time out?

Oaks Day

Oaks Day

There were many other stars joining Coco Rocha on the red carpet for Oaks Day held at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia earlier today.

Whitey Port: The reality TV star wore a Cooper St custom-print peplum top and white skirt with a sexy slit, which she styled with a red Chanel bag, white ankle-strap sandals and an event-appropriate wide-brim white hat. Whitney collaborated with Australian label Cooper St to launch a bespoke line for the brand which was launched last month.

Jennifer Hawkins: The face of Myer opted for a very different headpiece, donning an AUS$800,000 Cerrone diamond crown headpiece with her lilac Manning Cartell one-shoulder frock with a pretty lace skirt and black velvet waistband styled with a Jimmy Choo black clutch and two-tone pumps.

Lauren Phillips: Fellow face of Myer Lauren Phillips opted for a sleek and sexy Yeojin Bae figure-hugging animal-print dress and a burnt-orange Melissa Jackson headpiece.

Kate Waterhouse In Peter Pilotto – Melbourne Cup Day

Kate Waterhouse In Peter Pilotto - Melbourne Cup Day

Kate Waterhouse attended Melbourne Cup Day in Australia on Tuesday.

Perhaps it was something in the water, but Coco Rocha wasn’t the only one to don Peter Pilotto for the day’s festivities. The Sun Herald journalist — who also happens to be a part of Australia’s racing royalty — also chose an optic-printed Peter Pilotto Fall 2013 dress, this one with cutout short sleeves and a fun cocktail-length hemline.

For me, this look got its one-two punch from the well-coordinated details: a sexy pair of Tom Ford shoes, a gold Charlotte Olympia ‘Box Office’ clutch, and a custom co-designed headpiece by Nerida Winter for Hardy Brothers Jewellery.

Kate Waterhouse In Balenciaga – Victoria Derby Day

Kate Waterhouse In Balenciaga - Victoria Derby Day

Kate Waterhouse was very much at home attending Victoria Derby Day at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia on Saturday afternoon as she’s part of Australia’s racing royalty; she’s the daughter of leading thoroughbred trainer Gai Waterhouse and the granddaughter of racing legend Tommy “TJ” Smith.

Unlike Lara Bingle, Kate managed to toe the line between being fashionable and event appropriate, wearing a black Balenciaga Fall 2013 peplum dress creating a petal-shape silhouette with a plastron front and halter neckline.

A sexy pair of wrap sandals, a white floral appliqué Alexander McQueen clutch, drop earrings, and a Nerida Winter and Hardy Brothers vintage diamond-beaded lace half veil completed her look.

Kate has always been quite fond of veils. Not always successfully worn, but on this occasion it added an alluring, chic finish to her look.
