Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Seeing Leona Lewis in a slinky black outfit on the red carpet earned her a huge thumbs up and here she continues to show off rather than shy away.

Leona looks hot in a custom-made Vivienne Westwood gown posing with the kind of confidence a bespoke piece like this requires.

The layers of tulle and PVC bodice are very dramatic. This was made to turn heads.

She could be Cat Woman in disguise in this dress.

Sometimes it’s best to keep things short and simple and for Katy Perry this cute pink tube Bodyamr dress is a sugary sweet choice.

A twinkling sequined panel on the candyfloss colour is charming. The black shoes are less of a complement though, they are bulky and out of sync with this outfit.

This is one of Katy’s better looks of the EMAs.

Joss Stone appears to be having a good fashion day in this Grecian-style asymmetric dress.

By adding platform heels Joss is sexing it up a bit, though she could have added a bit of sparkle or cheeky metallic somewhere for added glamour.

This loose dress is subtle but the white stands out with success. Shame about her hair though. Too tough for such a soft piece.

Katy Perry certainly knows how to put on a performance.

Hosting last night’s MTV EMA’s the singer made the event her own by showcasing a spectrum of crazy fashion finds.

Pictured in an alarming Viktor & Rolf Spring 2009 ball gown, Katy opted for shock tactics on the stage.

The strangely shaved netting and bullet-hole-style cavity is a bit too eerie for such a light-hearted event.

I loved the dramatics in Viktor & Rolf’s Spring presentation, however this dress screams ‘DANGER!’ Sorry Katy, car-crash couture.

This is more like it.

Sampling a Marchesa 2010 dress, Katy looks like something from a vamped-up version of a swan-lake production.

Feathers seem to be a favourite with Marchesa for Spring 2010.

Here they complement the lace body, adding movement and texture and give Katy the extra detail that she needs. This dress has already been worn by Camilla Belle.

I love the white on Katy. It’s clean, fresh and works with her dark hair and eyes radiantly.

This Georges Chakra Couture Fall 2009 gown has hints of both pin-up glamour and a 1930′s flapper dress.

Katy is captivating here, the sparkling blue sequins and pearls on the dress turn Katy from a loopy pop-star into a siren.

Showing off her figure, and quite rightly too, Katy sticks with a more mature look.

Katy wore a second look by Georges Chakra, this time from his Spring 2010 ready to wear Edition collection.

The Lebanese designer dedicates his work to a modern, self-confident woman, making Katy a worthy fit for his designs.

This dress is another of Katy’s more ‘wacky’ choices. Having modified the hem to make a structured skirt, it resembles the carousel dress that the singer wore at last years EMA’s.

Ultimately wearing this dress whilst swinging on a decorated seat doesn’t really do much for the singer except confirm what we already knew; slightly bonkers.

First Cheryl Cole wore a David Koma dress on Saturday’s X Factor, now Beyonce Knowles has fallen in love with David Koma’s Fall 2009 collection.

The dress has been dubbed “the dustbin lid” dress and the “hub caps” dress, or as Marvel said it looks like a dress which was created from running into a clock shop naked.

Whatever you want to call it David Koma must be very pleased that in a space of a week 2 major stars have worn pieces from his collection.

Beyonce collected her “Best Female” Award at the lacklustre MTV EMAs last night, wearing an off-the-shoulder David Koma Fall 2009 dress with black peep-toe platforms.

I’m not surprised Beyonce wore the black wool dress with the signature tube detailing on the bodice and on the skirt, because she had to follow up with something amazing after her Gareth Pugh looks of last year.

I think she looked pretty darn fantastic in the dress, and I’m glad she support an up and coming designer.

Joint Best Dressed Award
This Atelier Versace Fall 2009 strapless gown was made for a body like Beyonce Knowles’.

The colour is absolutely divine on her, the sheen of the dress really pops, the bodice has an strong warrior feel to it which would’ve been the desired look for the independent woman.

I love how this gown skims her hip, and I’m pleasantly surprised at the lack of bling.

I would’ve preferred her hair pulled back, but now I’m just looking for flaws in an otherwise flawless red carpet look for B.

Joint Best Dressed Award
Trying to pick who was Best Dressed out of Beyonce and Katy Perry, was like a mother being asked to pick her favourite child.

How do you choose?

Both are wearing my favourite designers, plus they are both wearing my favourite looks from the respective collections, and both have bodies to die for.

Normally Katy wows us in a different way in eccentric Manish Arora pieces, but this time she wows us by looking so graceful in a nude one shoulder Marchesa Spring 2010 draped tulle strapless gown with embroidered black floral.

A very pleasant surprise indeed.

If there’s any room, both are up for BDOTW.

Most Sexy Award
Whilst stars like Katy Perry and Beyonce were wearing stunning – should’ve been saved for the Oscars – gowns, Shakira opted for shimmering silver ultra mini dress which left very little to the imagination.

I wonder if this dress was custom-made by Donatella Versace because the Sharika is wearing Versace Spring 2010 heels with her look.

De Ja Vu Award
Asia Argento wears an asymmetrical Sophia Kokosalaki Fall 2009 black and gold beaded dress which will give you a strong sense of de ja vu.

This is because she wore a very similar dress on the Italian version of X Factor last week.

I must preferred the previous look. This doesn’t feel as well put together.

Surprisingly Not Predictable Award
When I learned that Leona Lewis was attending this show I assumed she would wear something quite boring, but I was wrong.

Normally we see calf-length dresses, tights and no personality.

Not only is she giving us plenty of personality, but she’s also looking very sexy in her corseted look which includes black sequin harem pants and black vest Vivienne Westwood ensemble.

I can’t believe I just said harem pants are sexy, but Leona makes them work.

Normally I would complain about the two-tone hair, but it all adds to the fierce attitude of this look.

Her coral lips are divine.  I wish I could get away with that shade.

On Trend Award
Normally I find it hard to say anything nice about Joss Stone, but I really like her look.

It’s young, fun, on trend with the Over-The-Knee boots, plus I love how her super glossy hair is swept to one side.

Most Disappointed Award
Normally Pixie Lott is a lot more creative on the red carpet.

She normally brings colour and vibrancy, to this occasion her D&G black ruffled dress is nice but I know she can deliver more.

Not More Ankle Boots On The Red Carpet Award
Miranda Cosgrove was the teen star of the night working Alexander McQueen ankle boot with a black and blue harlequin dress.

Worst Dressed Award
“Hey girl, don’t you think my outfit is fly?”

No.  We don’t Lil Kim.

Two words spring to mind. Hot Mess.

You’ll be surprised to know that this is it.

I can’t believe that such a big ceremony pull in so few stars.

Yesterday Katy Perry attended the 2009 MTV European Music Awards press conference with Pete Wentz, and Joss Stone in Berlin.

Katy will be the main host. Pete will host the digital show whilst Joss will host the pre-show red carpet segment.

I’m praying Joss does a better job than Ashley Greene who was terrible hosting the pre-show at the MTV Music Video Awards in back in September.

Katy caught my eye wearing a nude Jenny Packham Spring 2010 chiffon dress with a playful feathered skirt.

She wore her dress with sheer tights and Louis Vuitton Cancan heels.

This is a nice warm up for the main event tonight which will no doubt see many wardrobe changes from the host.

Last year we saw her wear Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Elie Saab and The Blonds.

Check back later on tonight to see what she wore.
