January 25, 2010 Runway To Red Carpet

2010 NRJ Music Awards – Sofia Essaidi In Balmain

Excuse the caps but FINALLY.

Geez I’ve had to wait 11 months for this stunning Balmain asymmetrical electric blue Fall 2009 dress to hit the red carpet.

We’ve seen this dress on Paulina Rubio in her ‘Causa Y Efecto’ music video and Lady GaGa on her photoshoot in San Diego last year, but finally it takes pride of place on the red carpet.

Thankfully Sofia Essaidi has done it justice.

The sexy Moroccan singer was my favourite of the night.

I’m sure the matchy matchy police are freaking out that she matched both her clutch and peep-toes to her dress, but I guess she didn’t want to take too much of a risk.

Definitely in contention for BDOTW.

    She looks akward.
    Her face is pale compared to the rest of her body.
    The hair and the frills of the dress cause to much commotion.
    And I just can’t get over the fact that her toes are hanging out of the shoes.

    Oh come on, she looks FANTASTIC!!!! She brings something different to Balmain, a more glamourous strong woman look. Definitely a BDOTW if it’s not of the month.

    I’m not usually a matchy-matchy fan, but I love this look. The dress is so powerful that the shoes shouldn’t detract from that.

    I’m not a fan of this look. It is too much blue for my liking. This Balmain dress is definitely not what I would call a pretty dress. Looks trashy.

      I totally agree. If people didn’t know it was Balmain, it could’ve easily passed for a Vegas costume. And the monochromatic look makes it even tackier.

        I’ve never been a fan of Balmain so no matter how “well” someone wears it. The ridiculous lack of originality and the inherent tackiness of all their stuff always trumps any other pro there may be in the particular look. No from me.

    I think these shoes are made by Alexander McQueen.

      and her clutch too

    as gorgeous as this dress is, some of the impact is lost for me just because i’ve seen so many high street knock offs and celebs rocking the look. i don’t know, i’m not bowled over ūüôĀ

    meh, its a nice dress on the runway not so much on sofia, also the hair just ruins it.

    • mol January 26, 2010 at 1:33 am #

      I agree on the hair, it’s working against the dress.

    Sadly, all of the Balmain knockoffs have cheapened all of their clothes for me.

    I love all Balmain collection especially this Power Shoulder Jacket. This dress is gorgeous.

    Normally I’m not a fan of matchy-matchy either, but I don’t mind the shoes here (mostly b/c I just love that color), but the clutch is a bit much. But honestly, once you’ve gone all shinny blue, what other color do you carry? I think black would be too heavy, silver would be too much bling…

    • Linda January 25, 2010 at 9:42 pm #

      I think you’re right about that. This colour is so bold and awesome that you may as well just go with it. The blue looks fantastic with her hair and I think the whole look is great.

    not sure why but her legs and feet look like they belong to a barbie doll. maybe its the shoes

    *squee* I am so happy you noticed her ! Sofia totally wowed me last saturday !

    Also loved beyonce look, is that a giambattista Valli ?

    she is GORGEOUS!
    Amazing dress, amazing clutch, amazing shoes, amazing hair and make-up!

    I usually agree with you FC, but on this occasion not so much.

    She looks really awkward. Maybe I’d need to see her at a different angle perhaps.

    I’m not loving this at all!
