2009 Pride Of Britain Awards

Putting away her sexy corset dresses for the night, Kelly Brook wore a black Louis Vuitton Fall 2008 dress which had a peplum at the waist, and a panel of embellishments on the front of her dress.

Her dress was paired with Christian Dior Glam booties.

You may remember that Satsuki Mitchell wore this same dress to the “Defiance” London Premiere back in January this year.

I have several problems with Katherine Jenkins and her Jil Sander sculpted dress.

Firstly she would have looked amazing in the orange dress. So many people wore black on this red carpet, so she would have really stood out in orange.

The most important structured drape on one side of the dress looks really limp, therefore ruining the whole effect of the dress.

Lastly she folded the detail on the shoulder when it should have stood up like on the runway.

This is such a great dress, but she didn’t do it any justice. She might as well have just worn a pencil dress for all the love she is giving to this architectural masterpiece.

Katherine’s look was paired with YSL heels and a black clutch.

I would have been totally in love with Louise Redknapp in her Peter Pilotto digital print dress, had she not worn those ankle boots.

She’s not a particularly tall lady and those boots make her legs look really short.

Dannii Minougue is stunning as always wearing a leopard print strapless Lisa Ho Spring 2009 gown.

The Aussie continues to support designers from her home country both on the red carpet and on the X Factor.

Dannii co-X Factor judge Cheryl Cole also hit the red carpet.

I love the her hot-off-the-runway (2 days to be exact) one-shouldered Chapurin Spring 2010 LBD with the sheer corseted panel on the waist, but it still lacks the wow factor I usually get from Cheryl.

Maybe my expectations are too high, as her everyday style is so impeccable.

Kimberly Walsh of Girls Aloud to walk the red carpet at this event and she wore a cute asymmetrical LBD, with a large rosette detail on the shoulder.

This dress was not a runway dress, but I remember it from the Temperley London Fall 2009 presentation I attended in February were I took a picture of Kimberley exact dress.

Nicola Roberts attended the Vivienne Westwood Spring 2010 show this weekend in Paris.

Bizarrely she wore a Vivienne Westwood Gold Label Lily wedding gown, which is the shorter version of Carrie Bradshaw’s wedding gown.

Her pretty wedding dress was given an edgy as she carried a Alexander McQueen skull knuckle duster whipsnake clutch, and Christian Louboutin Candy Stud Pumps.

Alexandra Burke needs to fire both her make-up artist and her stylist, because on this evidence neither are doing her any justice.

Yes her gown is white, but that doesn’t mean she needs to colour co-ordinate her eye shadow.

Black pumps with a white gown?  Really?


I applaud Myleene Klass for wearing such a risqué dress on a cold and rainy night, but this LBD screams I want to be on the front page in the morning.

Her feathered clutch is adorable though.

Mr & Mrs Kay aka Tess Daly and Vernon Kay walked the red carpet together still looking every much the loved up couple.

He wore a midnight blue suit, whilst she looked gorgeous in a nude shimmering fitted dress with a ruffled bib.

Do shoes come in a colour other than black these days?  I wonder because they seem to be paired with everything on the red carpet.

Socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson looked very happy to be at this event.

The socialite paired a Azzedine Alaia dress with hot red Charlotte Olympia shoes.

Michelle Keegan kept warm from the damp weather by wearing her cute pink Lipsy London heart layer dress which has a bejewelled waistband, with a black blazer.

Abbey Clancy continues to prove that she doesn’t own a dress that doesn’t expose her underwear.

I’m loving that new hair cut on Kara Tointon.  It’s much more sophisticated that the chavy look she had on Eastenders.

The actress thankfully went against the LBD theme and wore a silver sequined fan print dress.  With black pumps of course.

Newlyweds Gary Linekar and Danielle Bux walked the red carpet together.

He looked dapper in a navy suit, whilst she look very sexy in a strapless Dolce & Gabbana dress paired with black sash around her waist.

Although Emma Bunton went with the LBD trend, she did add a gold sequined cape to make her look more interesting.

Lisa Snowdon might as well have worn a LBD as her nude Whistles Abstract sequin dress and those thick tights are not doing her any favours.

What happened to the red carpet sex kitten?

    kelly, gorgeous glad it isnt too tight and sexy or too cutesy.

    katherine, i agree 100% with what you said.

    louise, the hair, make-up and ankle boots just make thing seem more casual than red carpet.

    nicola, i love it but i just cant see anyone else ever wearing that dress except for carrie bradshaw. those shoes are just frickin gorgeous.

    kimberly, wow taking pouting lesson with miley cyrus i see. dress is nice but sheer tights really!

    cheryl, meh nothing special. she is very overrated when it comes to her style.

    alexandra, black pumps with a white dress would have been okay if the dress had a black detail on it, silver strappy sandals would have looked better.

    myleene, bad dress cute clutch. could she make her ankle anymore straight in that pose? it looks like it could snap off.

    tess, she looks great shame about the clutch and the shoes. vernon looks handsome.

    tara, sheer tights again with another cute dress. nice shoes though makes a nice change from black.

    michelle, cute from the ankles up.

    abbey, who invites chavs like this to an event called “pride of britain”? i for one surely am not proud that chavs like this are even in the public eye.

    kara, i want that dress! shoes are just blah.

    dannii, love the look. i am finally getting used to her shorter hair now although i miss the longer locks.

    emma, black dress yes, black tights yes, black shoes yes. *rolls eyes* i think the cape just looks terrible with that outfit.

    lisa, the dress is the only good thing about this look.

        Thanks sweets.

    ooh i take it back…. i like the Azzedine Alaia dress.. ruined by the tights though.

  6. sydneycheapchic October 7, 2009 at 12:28 pm #

    the only outfit i really liked was the Peter Pilotto one.. except that it was ruined by the boots..

    The only other thing that stood out for me is how pretty Kelly Brook is.

    Boo – missed opportunity on the Jil Sander’s dress. You are so right on the color and fit! Also, I love the much shorter version of the Peter Pilottl digital print dress on the model.
