2010 ESPY Awards – Marisa Miller In Alexander Wang

Refreshing Change Award
Victoria’s Secret model Marisa Miller shocked me when I saw her on the red carpet at the 2010 ESPY Awards.

Why?

Because she’s not wearing the VS uniform – a Herve Leger dress – I guess she’s only obligated to wear those dresses at VS events.

Instead she wore an Alexander Wang draped dress from the Resort 2010 collection.

Her sporty-luxe black satin-jersey dress has a nude mesh cutout racer-back which she shows off to the photographers.

The only thing predictable about Marisa’s look was her Trib Two heels.

2010 ESPY Awards – Amber Rose In Natalia Romano

Overdressed Award
The 2010 ESPY Awards which was held in LA last night was really disappointing.

Last years event was far more entertaining.

Anyway I’ll start of with Amber Rose who wore a beautiful tiered lemon Natalia Romano dress.

She looked really elegant – which just goes to show that it’s Kanye who brings her down.

My problem with this look is that she’s totally overdress for this occasion. It’s the ESPY Awards not the Oscars.

Also the layers make her appear wider than she actually is.

Nice attempt though.

2009 ESPY Awards Red Carpet

Best Dressed Award
I wasn’t really expecting much from this event to be honest.

That all changed when I saw Venus Williams.  She really wowed me wearing a Mara Hoffman Spring 2009 print silk-chiffon maxi dress, with plunging neckline and tie to the waist.  She accessorized with a silver necklace and a matching ring.

Her hair was swept to one-side to add more elegance to her look.

She looks ace wouldn’t you agree?

Most Consistent Award
I only see Driver Danica Patrick on the red carpet once a year at this event and she always impresses.

Last year she wore a cute Nanette Lepore mini dress, this year she opted for a sexy yet sweetly feminine, Stella McCartney Fall 2009 dress.

The dress has been modified from the runway to be shorter plus her dress has nude panels with a lace overlay.

I love that she kept the rest of her look classic with simple jewelery, complementary two-tone black peep-toe heels and her hair styled into a beautiful updo.

Nice Dress, But I Prefer The Runway Version Award
Demi Moore looks great in her custom-made Zac Posen Resort 2010 cold-shoulder dress, but I LOVED the runway version so part of me feel a bit disappointed even though Mrs Kutcher looks super hot.

Black satin Bally platform peep-toe pumps and gold bracelets completed her look.

Most Improved Award
Serena Williams always goes for an ultra glamorous look which usually fails to work.

On this occasion her teal blue Roberto Cavalli gown is perfect.

The colour is gorgeous and the fit is flattering. For once I don’t notice her muscle, but I do notice her twins.

How does she run around a court for 2 hours? It’s gotta hurt.

De Ja Vu Award
Jaime Pressly wore a very similar Joey Tierney Couture LBD, and styled her hair in almost the same way when she attended the “I Love You, Man” LA premiere.

When she looks this drop dead gorgeous why not recreate the magic I guess.

Her skin is positively glowing.  She’s very much the yummy mummy.

Nice dress, shame about the hair Award
Miranda Kerr wore a fabulous white Calvin Klein haltered gown which looks stunning on her, but the hair doesn’t quite work for me.

I like that she tried something new as her style is usually the same, but I don’t think it suits her.

Worst Make-Up Award
WNBA player Lisa Leslie didn’t look in the mirror before she left the house. I refuse to believe anyone would knowingly leave their home looking this bad and not be aware.

YIKES!!!!

Most Zzzzzz Award
Out of all the Victoria Secret models who walk the red carpet Marisa Miller has to be the most boring, predictable and uninspiring.

Like Amanda Bynes it’s always the same formula.  Tight, short, black or white, Herve Leger or Dolce & Gabbana.

On this occasion she’s wearing a white strapless short Dolce & Gabbana dress, with a jeweled belt from the Spring 2009 collection.

2008 ESPY Awards Red Carpet – Best Dressed

Best Couple/Best Dressed Female Award
I love Victoria Beckham, you know I do, but for her to walk the red carpet with sunglasses on, (one of my red carpet NO NO’s) is beyond pretentious, although I do appreciate that she is channeling Audrey Hepburn here.

Luckily for her she has that hot arm candy in her husband David Beckham, and she wore a stunning primrose yellow RM for Roland Mouret Pre-Fall 2008 ‘Kleber’ cocktail dress, with an origami-pleated neckline, and full-length zip at the back, which makes me forgive, but not forget.

What I also admire is her restraint to not have worn shoes to match her dress.

Best Dressed Male Award
Hotness.

In some pictures it looked like David Beckham had tucked his tie into his shirt, but the soccer stud was actually wearing a white waistcoat. Such a smooth look for the handsome Becks wearing a Spencer Hart suit and Tom Ford shoes

David won Best MLS Player on the night, a feat that was not very difficult.

Best White Award
For such a hot sunny day TV personality Terri Seymour chose right with this white Azzedine Alaia mini dress, which she matched with gold YSL tribute pumps.

Best Sparkle Awards
I love Venus Williams – who looks a lot like Serena here – in this black and silver sequined plunge-neck Diane von Furstenberg dress with Giuseppe Zanotti strappy heels.

The more championships she wins, the better her style becomes.

Best Female Over 6ft Award
It is not easy being tall, muscular and dressing elegantly, but WNBA player Candace Parker pulls it off, looking very glamourous in her champagne gown.

The star won Best Female Athlete on the night.

Best Accessories Award
I would never have thought to match yellow with grey, but IRL driver Danica Patrick, makes it work with her Nanette Lepore Spring 2008 strapless mini dress.

Not crazy about her hair though.

Simple, But Elegant Award
Sophia Bush’s dark olive one-shouldered Fendi Fall 2008 gown, is a huge departure from her normal style of thigh high dresses.

I adore her earrings.

Best Mini Award
Kristen Bell kept is short and very sweet in this strapless purple Jil Stuart Resort 2009 bustier dress, which she accessorized with a long necklace with a huge pendent.

Best At Sticking To What Works Best Award
Model Adriana Lima wore this Alessandro Dell’Acqua dress, which you would very much expect her to wear as it’s cute and short.

Best At Not Playing It Safe/Best Legs Award
Kate Walsh could have worn a dress like Sophia Bush and played it safe, but the actress wanted to have fun last night, and it showed.

The Private Practice star wore a short purple and silver sequined Jenny Packham cocktail dress, which showed off her sexy legs.

She completed her look with strappy Calvin Klein heels.

Just Not Sure Award
I am not sure if I like this printed maxi dress on Ashanti or I hate it, so I am staying on the fence.

2008 ESPY Awards Red Carpet – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Female Award
Between the criss cross halter neck, the exposure of her breasts and her sour puss face, Brittny Gastineau is a holy hot mess.

Worst Dressed Male/Worst White/Worst Michael Jackson Impression Award
Soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo, again wearing my pet hate on the red carpet – sunglasses, looked really really bad.

Mostly because of the off white suit with the white tee. I am surprised he did not colour coordinated the crutches.

I can not believe he flew from Manchester in England to attended an event on crutches when he did not even win an award. ?!?!

Worst Woman Over 6ft Award
After seeing what is possible with Candace Parker, WNBA player Lisa Leslie could have tried harder.

Worst Couple Award
Actor Forest Whitaker and wife Keisha are not usually known as Mr & Mrs Bland, but both went with very dark colours for such a sunny day.

Keisha is wearing a black Fendi Fall 2008 dress, with a feathered hem.

I Know You Can Do Better Award
On the red carpet is were Fergie really makes some magic happen, but on this occasion, she seems very muted. The Calvin Klein dress looks great, but it does not match Fergie’s personality.

No Wonder You Did Not Walk The Red Carpet Award
Jessica Biel did not walk the red carpet, and no wonder. What she is wearing is suitable for work or a trip to the mall, but a little bland for a red carpet event.

Her peeping bra strap also loses her many points, her hair looks very greasy, she is in desperate need of some lipstick and what is that thing around her neck?

Nice Dress, Shame About The Make-Up Award
Toccara Jones plum dress is gorgeous. It really shows of her fantastic curves, but the eye make-up is enough to make Lil’ Kim say “Oh no you didn’t”.

Three-peat Award
Figure skater Michelle Kwan ends up in this category for being the 3rd person within a week to wear this Dolce & Gabbana dress.

As beautiful as the dress is, I am bored of it already.

Best At Looking Trashy Award
Kendra Wilkinson and Bridget Marquardt look equally trashy, as you would expect.

Bridget’s Mandalay dress has also been worn by her fellow housemate Holly Madison.

I guess they share dresses as well as wrinkly old men. *shudders*
