Red Carpet Fashion Awards

I was very excited to see Cate Blanchett back on the red carpet this evening in Wellington, New Zealand for the world premiere of ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’.

Her first look of this promo tour was an Antonio Berardi Resort 2013 gown.

The tri-colour look has a lot of elements, with the sheer red top with a fitted bustier, white corset-like centre and long black crepe skirt, but Queen Cate manages to pull it off.

Simple styling was the key to making this look work, so Cate added a beaded bracelet, stud earrings and Roger Vivier ‘Prismick’ sandals to her look.

Her short blonde bob was accented with a silver clip to provide the finishing touch.

What a way to kick start the campaign. I hope she continues to opt for bold looks like this throughout the tour. Fingers crossed.

Bella Heathcote, who’s been taking Hollywood red carpets by storm, returned home for the GQ Men of the Year Awards 2012 held in Sydney, Australia earlier today.

The beautiful actress, known for her piercing blue eyes and blunt bangs, wore an Emilio Pucci dress for the occasion.

Her blue nylon knit dress from the Spring 2013 collection sports an open back.

I love colour on her, plus her bronze accessories including Camilla Skovgaard heels add a warm hue to the look.

Lara Bingle was back on the red carpet earlier today for the Cleo Annual Swim Party held at the Water Bar in Sydney, Australia.

The girl-about-town donned a gorgeous Josh Goot strapless dress.

This urban futuristic dress would’ve looked perfect with the right shoes.

Lara’s black leather over-the-knee boots don’t cut it for me; they are overkill with this summery frock.

Isn’t it summer in Australia at the moment?

Kate Waterhouse was out on the circuit again today for the VRC Oaks Club Luncheon held at the Crown Palladium in Melbourne, Australia, earlier today.

The fashion editor wore an Ellery Resort 2012 dress on this occasion.

You’d be forgiven if you thought this oxblood high-neck dress with oversized sleeves was by Lanvin.

I think I would have to question Kate’s credentials once again; I mean, who would wear a dress with such voluminous shoulders with their hair down?

Surely a tight bun or even a ponytail was required with this look.

Jumping on the floral garland headpiece trend which has surprisingly taken off in the last two days, I have to say her choice of headwear, once again, looks ridiculous.

What should be coming naturally for a fashion editor is feeling forced and coming across like she’s trying too hard, à la Lara Bingle, which is a huge disappointment considering she is known for having impeccable style.

Black Ferragamo lace-up sandals completed her look.

You can buy Kate’s Ferragamo sandals from Luisa via Roma and Bloomingdale’s.

There was yet another ridiculous hat on the red carpet at the Melbourne Cup held at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia earlier today.

Kate Waterhouse’s beautiful face was totally obscured by her lilac veil with a ribbon accent.

On the plus side the veil matched her Gucci Resort 2013 shift dress which had an ornate floral necklace and tonal buttons going down the side.

The fashion editor of The Sun-Herald spent so much time and effort on her dress and hat, that she forgot to pay close attention to her shoes which pale in comparison with the rest of the look.

Once again she fails to impress on her playground.

Delta Goodrem also attended the Melbourne Cup at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia earlier today joining Ashley Madekwe.

The Australian singer wore a Christian Dior Fall 2012 dress.

Her long-sleeve raspberry-pink dress with brocade bodice and tulle pleated, layered skirt was accented with a satin waistband.

I’m extremely bothered by the floral Kerrie Stanley headband, as it doesn’t really complement her dress. It looks quite ridiculous in fact.

At first I was also bothered by her nude ballet flats until I realized that they were a necessity following a leg injury.

You may remember that Krysten Ritter wore this same dress back in September.
