“International Casandra Awards” – Zoe Saldana In Amanda Wakeley

Zoe Saldana was in the Dominican Republic for the “International Casandra Awards” last night.

Her father is from the Dominican Republic, so like Freida Pinto returning to Mumbai, this was a homecoming return for Zoe who lived there for 7 years.

The event was held at the National Theater in Santo Domingo where Zoe accepted her award for “Most Outstanding Artist Abroad Award”.

She looked stunning wearing an Amanda Wakeley Spring 2010 gown with an asymmetrical neckline.

Her cinnamon ombre draped gown was accented with a cocoa two-prong belt tied to her waist.

I love her look. Her gown has a sari-type feel to it due to the way it’s draped.

She kept her look effortless with a few bracelets and a wooden gold trimmed clutch.

The actress accepted her award speaking in Spanish.

Runway To Lakme Fashion Week – Freida Pinto In Christopher Kane

“Slumdog Millionaire” actress Freida Pinto was the center of attention on the final day of the Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai.

The Indian actress has been in Montreal shooting her new movie “Dawn of War”, but she flew in especially for Christopher Kane’s first presentation in India.

Freida wore a pastel yellow Christopher Kane Spring 2010 embroidered dress with sheer nude mesh panels on the skirt which had slightly been modified from the runway.

The runway version has chiffon cap sleeves and a ruffled neckline which are both missing from Freida’s version.

Personally I think Freida’s version loses a lot of it’s allure without those two elements.

I wish she’d worn the dress as presented. With her hair up she would’ve been able to work that ruffled neckline.

Net-A-Porter currently have the long sleeved blue version of this dress on their virtual shelves.

Runway To Alicia Keys’ Madison Square Garden Concert – Beyonce Knowles In Dolce & Gabbana

Last night fans were stunned when Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z arrived on stage to join Alicia Keys whose “Freedom” tour was held in New York’s Madison Square Gardens last night.

Wearing a black lace Dolce & Gabbana lace bustier dress, Beyonce joined Alicia on stage to perform their new single “Put It In A Love Song” which John Galliano recently used during his Christian Dior Fall 2010 presentation.

Bey’s hubbie Jay-Z later surprised fans by joining Alicia on stage to perform their hit single “Empire State of Mind”.

Wow. Three great performers for the price of one.

Beyonce paired her dress with a ‘Sasha Fierce’ pair of Giuseppe Zanotti gladiator studded heels and silver jewels.

Blake Lively had our jaws on the floor when she wore this same dress to the ‘Sherlock Holmes’ New York Premiere last year.

Both have amazing legs to pull of this sexy look.

I love Bey when she curls her hair like this, poker straight doesn’t always work for me.

“The Runaways” New York Premiere – Dakota Fanning In Elie Saab Couture

Dakota Fanning walked the red carpet at “The Runaways” New York premiere with Kristen Stewart where they were joined by Joan Jett and Cherie Currie, who the young actresses portray in the movie.

Looking like tinkerbell in her nude embroidered baby doll Elie Saab Spring 2010 dress, Dakota glowed on the red carpet.

The gorgeous dress has an open back and cap sleeves which make this dress so pretty.

She’s swiftly becoming a favourite of mine as she’s always sophisticated, age appropriate and adorable to boot.

Unlike Kristen, Dakota made the right shoe choice, wearing a pair Brian Atwood nude suede “Maniac” pumps.

BDOTW contender in my eyes. What about yours?

“The Runaways” New York Premiere – Kristen Stewart In Emilio Pucci

Kristen Stewart walked the red carpet at the New York premiere of “The Runaways” last night sporting a new hairstyle. Woot woot.

We were commenting on how she could try to do something new with her hair, and here we have a sleek updo with a few pieces falling down one side of her face to keep the look modern.

Many of you noted a change from her walking the red carpet at the Oscars, but I feel it was from the “The Runaways” LA premiere.

This time last year Kristen would’ve looked like she had to be wrestled into this Emilio Pucci sparkling strapless mini dress, but here she stands tall with plenty of confidence.

I love the dress – she’s clearly having a mini moment – but the black Sergio Rossi heels are killing me.

With all those colours on her dress you would’ve thought her stylist would have picked one to match her dress.

Baby steps…

What Was Mo’Nique’s Best Red Carpet Awards Season Moment?

Mo’Nique swept the awards for Best Supporting Actress at every major event this awards season.

She caused controversy over her unshaven legs and Oscar speech, but we’re here to talk fashion.

Her confidence grew on the red carpet, although her husband was blocking our view of most of her looks.

My favourite was her gold Reem Acra gown. It may have been the gown that exposed us to her hairy legs, but it was the one that really made her glow.
