2009 Critic’s Choice Awards – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed/Is It Meant To Be Funny? Cause I Ain’t Laughing Award
Funny woman Sarah Silverman tried to inject a bit of humour to the red carpet, and ended up being the joke.

Converse on the red carpet? Really? Was your dress not tragic enough on its own?

Worst Herve Leger Award
Ooooh Heidi Montag will be so jealous that Amanda Bynes wore this hot pink Herve Leger Spring 2009 dress before her.

OK she looks great it in, but yawn. I’m so over this type of bandage dress. The newer styles I can handle, but this, NO.

Worst Strapless/I Tried But I Couldn’t Love It Award
After Marisa Tomei’s red Donna Karan dress from the People’s Choice Awards, I was excepting to fall in love again.

Unfortunately I could not fall in with with her black strapless Giambattista Valli Fall 2006 dress.

On the runway, the dress looks fab, but Marisa just couldn’t pull it off imo. The ruffle dominates her.

Worst Hair/Lipstick Award
Elizabeth Banks usually always looks amazing on the red carpet. Her Reem Acra dress is gorgeous, and the shoes compliment it well, but she ruins the look with a birds nest hair do, and shocking pink lips.

Best Forever21/New Look Award
Now there is nothing wrong with Forever21, nor New Look. I have shopped at both stores.

The clothes are cheap and disposable, and this is exactly how Kristen Bell makes this Stella McCartney Spring 2009 dress look.

She completed her look with a Fendi Mini Borderline satin clutch.

No Wow Factor Award
Penelope Cruz is an A list actress.

Like Theron, Diaz, and Kruger, they should be wowing us every time they step their Jimmy Choo’s on the red carpet. They have Galliano, Lagerfeld and Valli on their speed dials, so they never have excuses.

I am not wow’ed. Not even close. I think it is mixture of feeling like I have seen this look on her before, and that she doesn’t even look enthused to be there, kills my buzz also.

This is a B list actress dress at best.

"Notorious" New York Premiere

You may have noticed that towards the end of 2008, I was making an effort to be nice to Beyonce. She had made a lot of changes – stylewise – so I said to myself that in 2009 I will make a conscious effort to be nice to her.

Well we are 8 days into the New Year, and I will already be breaking my New Years resolution.

WFT is going on here?

Is her colourist still on vacay? Like really.

I don’t have her kind of money, but I would NEVER leave my house with hair like that unless I was going to the salon.

She also making very hard work of this off-the-shoulder olive Donna Karan dress, and her matching sequin wrap.

Lets move onto the make-up. Just look at were her hairline starts and were her foundation is applied. There is at least an inch gap.

Shame on you B, shame on you. The only thing working for me here is the YSL Tribute sandals.

With her hair piled high Angela Bassett looked very elegant in her Pamella Roland Spring 2009 black and silver dot gown.

She was the only one to inject a bit of old fashion glamour to the red carpet at this event.

June Ambrose, the stylish stylist that she is, wore a grey tweed YSL Fall 2008 dress, which had a blue lining. That blue lining worked well with the blue sole of her YSL Trib Two’s. Nice touch.

Is it me or is Ciara almost totally unrecognizable? It appears she has lost a lot of weight, because all I can focus on are her cheek bones.

The singer worked a black leather ensemble with leopard print Louboutin’s.

A furless Mary J Blige walked the red carpet wearing as much tanned leather as she could find in her closet.

Cassie looked supa dupa fly in her cream and black embroidered Givenchy Fall 2008 jacket, with skin-tight black pants and YSL Cut-out platform heels.

Eva Longoria For Glamour US February 2009

Eva Longoria graces the cover of Glamour US February 2009 edition, with her cropped hair do, despite recently returning to her longer locks.

The Desperate Housewives star opens up to Glamour about her relationship with hubby, Tony Parker and her weight gain for Desperate Housewives.

On the relationship with her husband: “Tony [Parker]and I would love to be together forever. But the only way you get to forever is one day at a time.”

On the appearance of recent weight gain for Desperate Housewives: “I’m wearing a fat suit! It’s suffocating. Unfortunately, we live our life in public, so any weight gain or pimple is a national story. I don’t get this obsessions with weight. It’s not only Hollywood; it’s our society.”

On who is the “flower” and who is the “gardener” in her marriage: “I’m the gardener. I definitely nurture. [My husband] is the flower. But there are times when Tony takes care of me—in an emotional sense, like, OK, let me take the reins on this one. But I love to take care of him. I’m really a very fifties housewife.”

2009 People’s Choice Awards – Best Dressed

Joint Best Dressed/Golden Girl Award
Now this is how you bring glamour to the red carpet.

Jennifer Morrison did not disappoint, as she took to the red carpet last night wearing a gold and silver metallic cocktail dress from the Gianfranco Ferre Spring 2008 collection, which was open at the back.

She complimented her dress with satin pewter Christian Louboutin slingbacks.

Joint Best Dressed/Lady In Red Award
Marisa Tomei’s red strapless Donna Karan dress is simply breath-taking and her gold accessories compliment her dress perfectly.

I particularly love the gathering detail on the skirt, and asymmetrical hem.

Best Asymmetrical Award
Like her mum Kate Hudson is so full of energy and life, so she picked this stand-out teal Gucci Spring 2009 asymmetrical gown, with a palm tree print to match her vibrant personality.

The actress completed her look with matching two-toned Giuseppe Zanotti platforms, and Jack Vartanian black and white rings.

Best Gown Award
There is always something so calm and serene about Olivia Wilde. I would imagine she took 5 minutes to get ready for this awards do, because she looks so effortlessly beautiful wearing this white halter BCBG Max Azria gown, which she compliments with gold accessories.

She completed her look with a matching white Jimmy Choo clutch.

Best LBD Award
Teri Hatcher is not the most consistent on the red carpet, but the Desperate Housewives star looked very sexy in her black satin Givenchy Haute Couture vintage dress from Decades Inc.

I love the bows on each hip. Her pointy pumps help elongate her already very long legs.

Surprisingly fabulous.

Best Dressed Teen Award
Much improved on yesterday’s dress, Dakota Fanning is simply gorgeous in this electric blue one-shouldered BCBG mini dress. Grown up, yet still age appropriate.

Best Couture Award
Queen Latifah wore a striking purple Georges Chakra couture gown.

The hosts flowing chiffon halter gown had a jeweled neckline, with some jewels cascading down the front of her gown, which only made her sparkle more.

Best Dressed Curves Award
Queen Latifah wore a custom emerald green one-shoulder Gustavo Cadile gown, when she collected an award for Favorite Independent Movie for Secret Life of Bees.

The curvacious star’s gown was detailed with embellishments on her shoulder.

Best Non Actress Award
Dancing with the Stars host Samantha Harris wore a white one-shouldered David Meister dress, with a silver beaded shoulder.

She complimented her white hot dress with silver strappy sandals.

Best Black Award
Christina Applegate wore a black chiffon Jenny Packham gown, when she collected her award for Favorite Female TV Star.

The embellishments stop this from becoming a boring black dress.

Best Herve Leger Award
Yes I know you are all tired of Herve Leger on the red carpet, but this was one of the best from the Fall 2008 collection. Jessica Stroup looked gorgeous when she took to the red carpet last night. Not so crazy about her shoe choice though.

Finally Those Red Streaks Have Gone Award
Jordin Sparks finally ditched those red streaks which she wore to every red carpet event last year. I’m glad it was just a 2008 fad.

The singer arrived wearing a vibrant silk blue pleated Jessica McClintock, with a rosette detail on the hip. She accessorized with gold sandals and a matching clutch.

Best TV Star Award
90210 actress Lori Laughlin wore a silver shimmering Gustavo Cadile dress, which she accessorized with a Swarovski clutch and jewels.

That’s Hot Award
This type of low-cut, full skirted Jenny Packham dress is perfect for Paris Hilton. The golden colour compliments her colouring, and I adore the floral appliqué and gold sequins which cover the dress.

She completed her look with large gold metallic pumps, and a cute Fendi bag.

Best Necklace/Best Mini Strapless Award
Malin Akerman wore a strapless colourblock dress by Jay Godfrey, which was a cute flirty choice.

She punched up her look with a large silver statement necklace and chunky bangles.

Best Floral Award
Carrie Underwood had the most changes of the night. She first wore a Naeem Khan Pre-Fall 2009 gown on the red carpet.

This floral dress is really beautiful, as it also shimmers with the bead work and sequin embellishment. She completed her look with Cinta by John Hardy jewels, and a Mary Norton clutch.

Best Use Of Colour Award
Carrie wore a heavily embellished tangerine Jenny Packham Spring 2009 cocktail dress, when she accept her award for Favorite Female Singer.

Best Backstage Award
For her third and final dress, the Country singer wore a lime green empire-waist tiered gown.

It must have been an exhausting night for Miss Underwood with all those custom changes.

She completed her look with Cinta by John Hardy jewels.

2009 People’s Choice Awards – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
I would wear this dress to work or to an interview, in fact I think I have a dress just like this. So I’m surprised Jennie Garth, with access to a lot of dresses, would pick this one.

OK she does not have the keys to Carolina Herrera’s closet like Renee Zellweger, but she can do better than this, even with her D list status.

Most Disappointing Award
Debra Messing is one of my faves, so imagine my deep disappointment to see her take to the red carpet last night in this extremely unflattering Donna Karan dress.

The steel grey colour is not so bad, but the fit is, and so is that thing on the front of her dress.

Why Debra? Why?

Most Unlikely To Add This Dress My Wish List Award
This has to be the most boring dress I have ever seen Reese Witherspoon wear.

So dull, so lifeless, so unlike Reese. I hope she’s saving better dresses for bigger occasions.

Most Uninspiring Award
Apart from the leopard print lining of her Dolce & Gabbana suit, I have no interest in what Katherine Heigl is wearing – although I do like the shoes.

For someone of her caliber, I would have expected more. Anne Hathaway looked so great in her suit this week, that this feels a bit copy-cat.

No Wow Factor Award
The colour was great, but I felt no wow factor from Chandra Wilson.

Worst Gown Award
There were a few gowns at this awards show last night, but Lisa Edelstein takes the prize for having the worst one.

Again it fails to flatter, and again I expected more.
