Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Most Covered Up (for Blake) Award
Blake Lively looked stunning at the BAFTA Brits To Watch Event, which was held at the Belasco Theatre in LA yesterday evening.

The “Gossip Girl” actress did manage to upstage the Duchess, but in very classy refined way.

Her Marchesa Spring 2011 one-shoulder gown is both simple and breath-taking.

I bet many of you didn’t expect this from her.

Both her legs and boobs are hidden under her dove grey chiffon embroidered gown, which some might welcome as a refreshing change.

Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Christian Louboutin heels completed her look.

DeJa Vu Award
When I saw Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge arrive on the red carpet at the BAFTA Brits To Watch Event, which was held at the Belasco Theatre in LA yesterday evening, I instantly had a touch of deja vu.

Catherine’s Alexander McQueen gown instantly reminded me of the Georges Hobeika gown Fan Bing Bing had worn earlier this year.

Mostly because of the colour, the pleats and the waistband.

The Duchess teamed her McQueen gown with a silver Jimmy Choo Vamp glitter-finish sandals and a Jimmy Choo clutch, proving she does have a wider choice of accessories in her suitcase.

Catherine looks beautiful, but I’m still waiting for her to wow me during this tour.

There’s A Time And A Place Award
I had mixed feelings when I saw Jennifer Lopez on the red carpet at the BAFTA Brits To Watch Event, which was held at the Belasco Theatre in LA yesterday evening.

On the one hand she’s wearing my favourite Emilio Pucci embroidered sleeve gown from the Fall 2011 collection which was also my second favourite look of the season, plus she working the hell out of it as only JLo can.

On the other hand, the look is totally inappropriate for the event.

I don’t know about you, but if I was going to an event attended by the future Queen of England I wouldn’t want her be able to count my abs.

I thought Jennifer had more class than this.

Whilst she’s representing her diva status, this feels like a blatant attempt to upstage everyone, especially the guest of honour.

She should’ve saved this for the Grammy’s or a movie premiere where I would’ve been screaming BDOTW.

A Lena Erziak clutch completed her look.

Best Embellishments/Best Couture Award
Nicole Kidman sparkled on the red carpet at the BAFTA Brits To Watch Event, which was held at the Belasco Theatre in LA yesterday evening.

The Australian actress wore a custom Elie Saab gown.

Ice blue is a fabulous colour for Nicole, as it brings out the colour in her eyes.

The embellished gown with structured shoulders also has a drape detailing at the back.

Whilst I like the Manolo Blahnik heels, I’m not too crazy about the satin Ferragamo clutch.

The colour matches, yet it feels so out of place for me.

I would’ve preferred a box shaped minaudière which wasn’t so in the way.

Many of you have tagged Nicole as being boring on the red carpet for the past few years, so what do you think about this look?

On Trend Award
We’ve seen a lot of thigh-high splits on the red carpet lately; the latest reveal came via Leslie Mann at the BAFTA Brits To Watch Event, which was held in LA yesterday evening.

The blonde actress wore a L’Wren Scott Spring 2011 sleeveless dress.

Her nude turtleneck dress is embellished with very fine gold beads which is more visual in the close-up.

Those details were perfectly completed with a gold Judith Leiber clutch, gold hooped earrings and gold peep-toes.

The embellishments and accessories should be enough, but I still feel like something is missing and I can’t put my finger on it.

WHAT??? NO TIGHTS Award
I almost fell off my chair when I saw Zooey Deschanel walk the red carpet at the BAFTA Brits To Watch Event, which was held at the Belasco Theatre in LA yesterday evening.

It’s a shame the shadows are masking this momentous occasion.

The self proclaimed lover of tights didn’t opt for her red carpet safety blanket whilst wearing her Oscar de la Renta Fall 2011 dress.

I for one am glad, because her blush silk organza embroidered dress with a gathered skirt and scalloped hem looks perfect without them.

Brunette wavy locks tumble down the bodice of her tea-length dress which accessorizes with a gold clutch and matching ankle strap pumps.

Kudos to her for stepping out of her comfort-zone.
