2008 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Every morning when I am looking at the pictures of events from the previous night, I am always looking to say wow. I had two moment like that today, and the first was Nicole Kidman.

I am not sure you will all love the ice queen in her stunning spaghetti strapped L’Wren Scott Spring 2009 ice white gown, with jeweled detail on the empire-waist, but I absolutely adore her here.

She is so statuesque, regal even. I came imagine jaws were dropping all night.

Along with Ali Larter, Nicole is up for Best Dressed this week.

And if you think the front is amazing, look at the detail on the back.

Kate Bosworth did not opt for a stunning gown, but the affects are just the same.

Her black tuxedo-style Chanel dress with a white bib, was amazing and sophisticated enough for her stand on the same red carpet as Nicole Kidman.

I do not think there has ever been a time when I was not impressed with Natalie Portman.

She appears to be a quiet shy retiring type, but girlfriend knows how to master the red carpet, and she did so again, wearing a black Jolibe Fall 2008 dress with a sequined panel going down the front, and folds on the skirt.

She completed her look with a pair of pom pom shoes, which she also owns in purple.

There was a time when America Ferrera would wear nothing but black. Thank god those days appear to be over as the Ugly Betty actress took to the red carpet last night wearing a multi-coloured sleeved Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2008 embroidered dress.

Love the dress, not so crazy about the Amy Wino hair ‘do, which she has sported before.

Sarah Michelle Gellar opted against her bangs, which she sported last week in favour of a messy up ‘do.

Like many women at this event she opted for a white dress. This dress was by Vicente Villarin Spring 2009

The beaded detail on Selita Ebanks’ dress is the most interesting detail on her grey gown with a black overlay.

I love the way she constantly adapts her crop. I wish I had the guts to go for the chop.

What is up with young Hollywood?

Taylor Swift should be trying to give people like Natalie Portman a run for her money, but instead she opts for a long, plain, boring black gown.

Taylor is usually very impressive on the red carpet so I am a touch, sorry very disappointed in this effort.

When she rocks, she rocks, and Fergie rock it last night.

The singer arrived looking sweet and innocent wearing an amazing white Michael Kors gown, with a jeweled bodice. Can’t wait to see this girls wedding gown.

You may have noticed that Fergie has put on a bit of weight. The singer put on 13 pounds to play a character named Saraghina in the upcoming movie musical Nine.

Debra Messing is not often on the red carpet, and she rarely gets it wrong. On this occasion, I think she did, as this Ralph Lauren Fall 2008 dress does anything for her at all.

Despite it being just a black dress by Gucci, I do like it on Tyra Banks as for once she is toned down and not over the top.

This is not my favourite look for Jane Krakowski. I think it is her hair, because her strapless Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti satin bustier dress is a gorgeous berry colour.

Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Of The Year Awards

Amelle Berrabah, Heidi Range and Keisha Buchanan of Sugababes all looked stunning in their floor length gowns for this event in London last week.

These girls really made an effort to stand out on the red carpet. Together they look good, individually, amazing.

Amelle wore a red plunge-neck dress by Jovani.

Heidi wore black plunge-neck Halston Fall 2008 gown, and Keisha wore a strapless sweetheart necklined Ashley Isham Fall 2008 pine green gown.

Dannii Minogue wore a very interesting asymmetric black dress, which has a peplum. She teamed her dress with a gold clutch, and a pair black and white shoes, which remind me of Gwyneth Paltrow’s booties.

Fearne Cotton arrived wearing a plunge-neck black jumpsuit, with her hair swept to one side.

The host of this event also changed into the mini sparkly number, which is much more her style.

Melanie Brown wore an paillette covered halter neck gown from Jenny Packham’s Fall 2008 collection.

The hairstyle does not quite work with the dress, but she has been working hard on looking glamorous and not trashy lately, so I will let it slide on this occasion.

Myleene Klass shows of her curves with a figure-hugging strapless Jonathan Saunders Fall 2008 strapless column dress.

Alesha Dixon won Ultimate Confidence Award, and she took to the pink carpet wearing a strapless sparkly mini dress, with a bow detail.

Jamelia stick to her usual boring style of LBD and slicked back hair.

Kim Cattrall adds a bit of international glamour wearing satin black dress with Pierre Hardy heels.

2008 World Music Awards Red Carpet

Alicia Keys was definitely the bell of this ball tonight, wearing a lilac strapless column Moschino gown, with a stand out pink Zufi Alexander clutch.

She is beyond gorgeous here.

This is another good effort by Solange Knowles. She wore a light grey Jenny Packham Fall 2008 mini dress, which had ruffles, feathers and a sheer panel.

But she really lets herself down with the black pumps. Silver strappy sandals would have been my preference here.

The hands by the face pose, is very Beyonce at the EMAs, don’t cha think?

Estelle always shows supports for London based designers.

The British R&B queen walked the red carper wearing an electric blue Ashley Isham Spring 2009 one shouldered draped dress, with burgundy platforms.

Anastacia went for something cute and playful Marc by Marc Jacobs Torn print prom dress, which very much suits her shorter ‘do.

The belted dress has a pleated bodice, tulle skirt with drape and gathered detail. This really was a great choice, but I would have loved to have seen her in a gown.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor also opted for a London based designer, wearing a lime green Temperley London Elfin tunic dress with a black trim, which delicately concealed her baby bump.

The gorgeous dress had a beaded lace detail at ballerina neckline, and cap sleeves. She completed her look with nude pumps, but I was not crazy about her choice of carrying a bright pink clutch.

Michelle Williams is gorgeous in this emerald green chiffon Malandrino Fall 2008 dress with rock beaded neckline.

I am really preferring the shorter hairstyle.

2008 MTV Europe Music Awards

Leona Lewis wore a cutesy pink strapless Marchesa dress with a ruffled bust and jeweled embroidered waistband.

The dress is nice, but it’s such a boring safe choice for the EMA’s.

Amelle Berrabah, of the UK girl group, Sugababes stood out from her band mates, Heidi Range and Keisha Buchanan by wearing the now sold out Preen Power bandage dress.

She wore her dress with a pair of pink lace up boots, which complimented her pink belt.

Heidi (in the middle) was a hot mess wearing a white one-shoulder dress with tights, blue suede shoes and matching earrings.

Keisha faired better wearing a tango red strapless Acne Baroque bustier dress with a double skirt, with open toe lace up boots.

Where the big one is, the little one follows.

Solange Knowles walked the red carpet tonight wearing a strapless dress from the Emporio Armani Fall 2008 collection.

The stunning strapless dress was covered in black shiny discs, which she wore with a black and white striped shrug.

She looks good, I can’t find a fault…oh except for the make-up around her eyes.

I love Estelle’s Jimmy Choo snake patchwork sandals, but I am much less exited about her Bernard Chandran Spring 2009 strapless dress. It feels a bit plain for the singer.

She made up for it by wearing this stunning electric blue strapless Bernard Chandran Spring 2009 dress, with a triangle shaped skirt with embellishments, which she wore when she performed American Boy with Kanye West.

It is about time Kelly Rowland wowed me.

The now UK resident arrived at this event wearing a simple black gown, showed off her amazing figure.

STUNNING.

Katie White of The Ting Tings works the crimped hair look which we have seen on Tyra Banks and Christina Aguilera.

Katie opts for a miss mash of bright colours, and I am loving everything accept the grey skirt. I would have loved something much brighter.

Alex Curran wears a black and ivory playful Krizia Spring 2008 playsuit with YSL platform boots.

It’s a bit out there, but this is the EMAs. The red clutch does not work though.

Daisy Lowe opted for a leather dress, with a gold studded waist belt.

Anastacia shows us she is back wearing a backless golden embellished gown, which shows off her two rather large tattoo’s.

I love that Pink tries to look feminine on the red carpet by wearing a lot of gowns. For a while it worked, but lately it has been very tragic. Case in point.

Duffy was officially the worst dressed at this event.

Runway To The MTV EMAs Stage – Beyonce In Gareth Pugh


When Beyonce Knowles performed her hit single If I Wear A Boy at the 2008 MTV Europe Music Awards tonight, she wore ANOTHER Gareth Pugh creation. This time from the Fall 2008 collection.

The singer opted out of the ribbed leather leggings, but wore the dress, with structured shoulders and a peplum at the waist.

The single is a very slow gushy ballad, so you would have expected Beyonce to come out in a long flowing Elie Saab, or Versace gown, but no.

Could this be the turn around I have been praying for? Time will tell.
