2008 UK Glamour Woman Of The Year Awards Red Carpet

Hayden Panettiere unfortunately could bring the LA sunshine to this rain soaked event last night, but she did delight in this red empire-waist Moschino Spring 2008 mini dress, with an exaggerated double tiered flounce hem and cap sleeves.

She completed her look with a pair of bronze Christian Louboutin peep-toes.

The Giles Spring 2008 prom-esqe dress Lily Allen was wearing looks very cute, but is decorated with prints of a bleeding Bambi’s. Not so cute.

What is also not so cute is Lily’s hair. I mean is she for real?

Yes it matches her dress, but just does not work in the grand scheme of things. I preferred her dark roots.

She teamed her dress with a pair of multi-blue Louis Vuitton shoes.

TV presenter Alexa Chung opted for a Luella Spring 2008 peasant-style embroidered strapless minidress, with black booties.

Beth Ditto’s Matthew Williamson Fall 2007 dress could not be any louder, but I continue to applaud her for not taking the safe route.

Her gold gladiator heels are by Alexander McQueen.

Estelle wore a chiffon black LBD from the Kristian Aadnevik Spring 2008 collection, with the bust and waist emphasised with sexy leather details. She teamed the dress with a pair of leather Sergio Rossi black lace sandals.

Emma Bunton will never shake off that “baby” tag, but she is all woman in her black beaded J’Aton Couture gown, which had a plunging neckline and a wide patent belt.

The new mum showed off her new chic bobbed hairstyle.

Dannii Minogue also wore a J’Aton Couture gown. Her stunning white gown was beaded throughout.

Danni is either glowing, or she moisturized very well before leaving for this event.

Geri Halliwell channelled her inner glamour-puss in a blue embroidered wet-look gown, complete with a fur boa.

Not a look I would favour, but Geri makes it work.

Mel B was determined to be the Spice Girl who stood out, and did so in this fuchsia v-front gown by Jenny Packham.

The dress is loud and revealing, but I would not expect anything less from her.

Tamara Mellon of Jimmy Choo won Accessories Designer Of The Year wearing a forest green mini Balmain Spring 2008 dress.

Keeley Hawes who won, UK TV Actress Of The Year, wore one of the most one of the most spectacular dresses of the evening.

Her voluminous, corseted cream gown is just a artistic master piece. She teamed the gown with bronze shoes.

Kate Beckinsale was named Film Actress Of The Year and collected her award wearing a chocolate full-length halter-neck Herve Leroux gown, with her hair loosely tied-up.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the new face for Burberry, looks very elegant in her terracotta gown and fur boa.

Kelly Osbourne opted for a vintage embroidered gown, from her mothers collection.

Joanna Page, winner of Comedy Actress of The Year, wore a cute silk frilly butterfly print Matthew Williamson Spring 2008 dress.

Kimberly Stewart opted for a short purple satin tunic dress with Miu Miu heels.

With her Jimmy Choo Aster snakeskin sandals, Katherine Jenkins wore this Hervé Léger Color block bandage dress.

This is a huge change for Katherine, as we are used to seeing her in structured dresses or cute frilly dresses. I would have preferred if she had opted for a more wild and adventurous hair style to fit the dress.

Model Daisy Lowe wore a strapless squared tulip dress and red shoes, whilst her beau Mark Ronson, opted for a classic velvet tuxedo. They are so hip it hurts.

Ferne Cotton wore a black silk Moschino minidress with Jimmy Choo heels that had a fuschia platform and heel.

Britain’s Next Top Model judge Lisa Snowdon, wore a very interesting tuxedo-style mini dress.

Annie Lennox won the Inspiration Award and was very much the golden girl in her sequined dress.

Band Of The Year – The Spice Girls

CFDA Awards Red Carpet

If there was a picture to depict redemption, this would be it.

Since crossing the pond, Victoria’s red carpet moments have not been showing her at her best.

Off the red carpet, not many can match her in the style department, but let’s face it Victoria Beckham’s Costume Institute Gala make-up and hair were a mess, and not many liked her peek-a-boo Marc Jacobs dress on the Victoria Secrets pink carpet.

This one-shouldered Marc Jacobs mini dress on the other hand is stunning.

We have seen ruffles on many red carpets recently, but Marc Jacobs gives this dress a twist with heart-shaped ruffles.

Her hair slicked back makes a nice change, and her foundation, this time is a close match the rest of her skin-tone.

10 out of 10 Mrs B.

Fellow Brit Naomi Campbell, the face of YSL Fall 2008, wore a YSL Fall 2008 ensemble including a black sheer shirt and black sequined jodhpur-style, billowing pants which narrowed at the ankle.

Looks like she has managed to sort out her hair issues, with a brand new weave.

Ashley Olsen is wearing a mannish Calvin Klein Resort 2009 tux, but manages to still look very feminine.

You feel that this ensemble is very much a homage to the late Yves Saint Laurent and his Le Smoking Tuxedo.

Wow, Hilary Duff is dazzling in this purple sequined Michael Kors tank dress.

I love the updo, the length of the dress, the snake-skin shoes and the stunning earrings.

Faultless.

Eva Mendes may be wearing just a plain white Calvin Klein Resort 2008 dress, but I love the detail on the bodice, which narrows at the waist, giving her a sleek silhouette.

Her jewelery is by Van Cleef & Arpels.

Eva Longoria disappoints big style.

You can usually rely on Eva to look fantastic on the red carpet, so this is a shock.

Her hair looks a big ragged. Not at all in the manor of her usual sleek styles.

The JLo eye make-up is not the right shade for her skin-tone, nor does it compliment her dress, and think this was the intention.

The Diane von Furstenberg dress has overly enhanced her, giving her a very cheap Pamela Anderson type look.

Only her clutch and her shoes survived this disaster.

Maggie Gyllenhaal was on presenting duties for the night.

Like many of the A list fashion pack, she is wearing an ensemble that has not even been uploaded on to Style.com yet, such is it newness.

She is wearing a green-and-black sheer tunic, embellished with sequins, and silk pants from the Proenza Schouler Resort 2009 collection.

Paula Patton looks so pretty with her side-swept bangs, wearing a one-shouldered belted black white and grey Michael Kors Spring 2008 floral gown.

This look is a very clean, simple and dainty look for Mandy Moore, which I love, as it suits her so well.

The white piping on her Abaeté gown prevents it from looking stale.

Famke Janssen oozes glamour in this white David Meister Fall 2008 one sleeved jersey cocktail dress. She compliments her dress with silver accessories.

Kim Cattrall who presented Tom Ford with the Menswear Designer of the Year Award, wore a dress that would have been perfect for one of her Sex And The City premieres.

This asymmetric navy Monique Lhuillier Fall 2008 gown with an embellished shoulder, has got to be one of the best looks I have ever seen on her.

Anna Wintour is as elegant and sophisticated as ever, in beige lace sheath dress with gold sequined embellishments and her trademark bob.

Amy Poehler wore a navy poppy floral demi-sheer Marc Jacobs Spring 2008 dress. The low U-neckline adds a little sex appeal.

Lipstick Jungle actress Kim Raver is also wearing Marc Jacobs Spring 2008.

Her dress shows off Marc Jacobs eccentricities, with 4 different pieces of fabric put together to make this uniquely beautiful dress. This collection seems to work better off the runway.

Kim compliment her dress with nude pumps, and a bag also from the Spring 2008 collection.

Actress Lauren Hutton is divine in this silk slate grey Calvin Klein Spring 2008 jumpsuit.

For the first time, in a longtime, I am not offended by Lil Kim. In fact I quite like this keyhole purple hearted Marc Jacobs mini dress. Even the make-up is not too brash.

Has she turned a corner? I doubt it, but it will fun to see what she wears next.

Georgina Chapman stunning as ever in her own Marchesa Fall 2008 design.

Carolina Herrera is breath-taking in this ice white tuxedo she designed. Her white satin shoes compliment her white satin lapels.

Caroline received of the Geoffrey Bean Lifetime Achievement Award.

Diane von Furstenberg showed her respect by decided against the dress she originally wanted to wear to choose this navy vintage YSL tuxedo.

Donna Karan wore this red haltered top from her own collection.

Tory Burch the Accessory Designer Of The Year winner, wore a pink dress from her own collection.

Vera Wang is of course in her own Fall 2008 creation.

03.06.08 In Her Closet

In Vanessa Hudgens’ Closet – Diane von Furstenberg


High School Musical actress Vanessa Hudgens did not walk the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards, but she was seen backstage wearing this sea shell-patterned Diane von Furstenberg mini wrap dress.

I found the silk spaghetti strapped dress on sale at Yoox.com for only $188 / £98.

Like Vanessa you can team this dress with a cream pair of heels or wedges.

MTV Movie Awards – Best Dressed



Best Dressed Award

Charlize Theron wore this silver metallic Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2008 bustier with black super skinny pants.

The actress wore a sexy pair of Roger Vivier heels.

Best Boots Award
Sarah Jessica Parker looked amazing again last night, wearing a chocolate shimmering L’Wren Scott Fall 2008 turtleneck dress. Only SJP can get away with wearing a dress this tight.

Check out the white lace up Louboutin boots. Of course they are not out yet. A Fall preview perhaps?

Best Couple Award
Zanessa aka Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron did not walk the yellow carpet, but they were snapped together.

Vanessa wore a summery plunging neckline sea shell-patterned Diane von Furstenberg dress, and her beau, Zac wore a navy blue sheen suit and white shirt by Moschino Uomo.

Best Style Transformation Award
Who would have thought lil’ Miss Anne Hathaway could pull off such an edgy look?

From the neck down she is almost unrecognisable in her edgy one-shouldered Sophia Kokosalaki black dress.

Best Hair Transformation Award
Audrina Patridge was determined to make an impact on the red carpet following her fall out with Lauren Conrad, and she successfully accomplished that with her new bangs.

I like her new ‘do, as her head does not appear to be as long and round.

Her navy satin dress is by Lloyd Klein.

Pretty In Pink Award
Liv Tyler wore a cute bubblegum pink Lanvin strapless toga dress with a gathered hem.

She carried a pink clutch, and wore a animal print pair of Louboutin heels.

Best Ruffles Award
Rocker Lucy Walsh just about pulls off this Christian Siriano Fall 2008 halter-neck purple ruffled dress without looking too much like an ostrich.

Best Couple Coordination Award
Paris Hilton and Benji Madden were perfectly coordinated in their black and white ensembles.

Paris wore a strapless Betsey Johnson lace embellished dress, which has a fitted bodice and a bubbled hem.

Keeping It Real Award
Well what did you expect Ellen Page to wear? Boob tube and mini skirt?

Last night she wore a black Suh-tahn leather jacket, black skinny pants and a white Suh-tahn t-shirt.

Best Herve Leger Award
OK, she looks like a blow up doll, but out of all the Herve Leger dresses that were worn last night, I loved the colour of this Adelisa strapless dress.

Best Use Of Colour Award
I love the multi-colours of Emma Stone strapless Blumarine dress. Her navy heels and orange clutch perfectly compliment her dress.

Best Silhouette Award
I love how this cobalt blue asymmetric dress from her own Lauren Conrad Collection, gives Lauren Conrad such a sexy silhouette. I did not know she had this body, as she always wears such loose fitting clothes.

Best Frenemy Award
Stephannie Pratt looks cute in this purple leopard print spaghetti strapped dress, but I am not sure about her sidewalk clutch.

Stephanie is obviously enjoying the benefits of being Lauren’s friend.

Best Bubble Hem Award
There were a lot of bubble hemmed dresses last night. But the uniquely quirky Whitney Port’s red brocade Nicole Miller dress, was by far the most interesting.

I love the contrasting chunky heels, which were interlaced with blue and yellow ribbon.

MTV Movie Awards – Worst Dressed

Underwear Is Called Underwear For A Reason Award
Jennifer Hudson looked beautiful in her Peter Soronen dress at the Sex And The City New York premiere. The dress gave the illusion of the bra peeping out of the dress, when it was actually built-in to the dress.

This dress is so low cut that her bra IS on display. This for me verges on the tacky side. Maybe if the bra straps were not showing I would have like this better.

Flashy to trashy in the space of 5 days. Which is a shame because her face is so beautiful, and her figure is amazing.

Victoria Beckham sported this pink bra on-display look last year.

Worst Weave Award
Why is Rumer Willis still persisting with these hair extensions?

She looks great in this black Herve Leger dress, it is just a shame that the hair lets her down.

Worst Pink Award
Megan Fox is a beautiful girl, but I bet if you crossed her she would kick your ass. Which is why I don’t buy this bubblegum pink lace prom Zac Posen Fall 2008 dress.

I get that the black tulle skirt was meant to make the dress more edgy, but is just does not work for me.

Worst Herve Leger Award
I do like Herve Leger dresses, but I tire of seeing them on people like Katherine McPhee.

Worst Hair Award
Lindsay Lohan took a lot of time to flat iron her hair, but it is a shame she could not have paid more attention to her roots.

Her lavender organza Dolce & Gabbana belted mini dress is very cute though.

PLEASE SACK YOUR STYLIST Award
I have been making this plea on behalf of Nikki Blonsky for a while now, and my prays are yet to be answered. Nikki is so much better than this.

The paisley-printed asymmetrical skirt is just not working for her.

Worst On Trend Award
Terri Seymour takes the jumpsuit trend and ruins it with this red strapless version.

What Happened To Your Stylist? Award
What happened to Rihanna?

She used to always be on my best dressed lists, now she is just blah in this Open Ceremony dress.

Lighten Up Award
I wish the Pussycat Dolls had worn something brighter, they usually do.

The girls are all wearing Dsquared².
