84th Oscars: Penelope Cruz in Giorgio Armani

Who: Penelope Cruz

Where: At the 84th Academy Awards held at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: An off-the-shoulder blue-grey Giorgio Armani organza gown, with fitted bodice, fabric that cascades into gathered pleats, teamed with Chopard jewel necklace, earrings and bracelet

Verdict: This is a classic gown, perfect for the Oscars, and the ethereal look is fabulous on her. The colour is a little different for her, and I adore her Grace Kelly make-up, hair and jewellery. Overall, this is a gorgeous look from Penelope and took me a little by surprise, which is always nice, I was expecting a full on sex-kitten look from her in a sparkly form-fitted gown. I like Penelope all demure, she has an old-Hollywood feel about her.

Pirates: Penelope Cruz in Marchesa, Emilio Pucci, Stella McCartney, Givenchy and Armani

Who: Actress Penelope Cruz

Where: At the Pirates of the Caribbean Premiere in Cannes, France

Wearing: A lavender coloured jewel encrusted illusion Marchesa gown from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, with flared silk tulle skirt and shoulder detailing; paired with a Swarovski clutch and Chopard jewellery

Verdict: Other than the Disney Premiere when Penelope wore that gorgeous black Marchesa, this is my favourite look from her European promo tour so far. I always feel that Marchesa add something extra to their red carpet looks but this is a divine dress that looks like it was designed especially for Penelope. It is hugging her in all the right places, and the colour is just perfection against her skin tone. She really is beautiful.

Where: At the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides photocall at the Palais des Festivals during the 64th Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: A navy form-fitted Stella McCartney dress from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, with a velvet skirt and teamed with navy heels

Verdict: I always love dresses that fall just below-the-knee, and navy blue makes it perfection for me. This is a perfect look for a photocall, and Stella McCartney is one of the best choices to go for, it really does show how amazing Penelope’s body is. Great look and I am so glad that she kept her hair down.

Where: At the première of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in Moscow

Wearing: A knee-length black velvet embroidered Emilio Pucci dress from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, with long sleeves and bow detailing

Verdict: This is one statement dress, normally I wouldn’t like this but Penelope oozes just enough attitude for this dress to shine. I know some will say that this is a boring look for a premiere, but I love the drama of the high neck, large bow and velvet. I like it.

Where: At the UK Premiere of Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides at Vue Westfield

Wearing: A white embroidered Givenchy Couture gown from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, with exposed zip detailing to the front

Verdict: At first glance I wasn’t sure about this look. There is no question that she is looking fabulous post-baby, but I just wasn’t sure if

Where: At the Pirates of the Caribbean 4 Premiere in Munich, Germany

Wearing: A custom fitted red organza Giorgio Armani Privé gown with long-sleeves

Verdict: What a beauty!! I loved Anne Hathaway when she wore a similar Armani gown in sapphire satin, but this red is just perfection and looks amazing on Penelope. Simply gorgeous.

I knew there had to be an Armani Prive gown in the mix, but even I was surprised by this beautiful sapphire custom satin reflective column dress.

I love this Tron-inspired gown, the way it falls slightly off-the-shoulders and the shimmer of it looked amazing on screen. This has to be one of my favourite looks from her tonight.

Actress Reese Witherspoon, wearing a gown by Armani Prive, arrives at the 83rd Academy Awards in Hollywood, California, February 27, 2011. REUTERS/Lucy Nicholson (UNITED STATES – Tags: ENTERTAINMENT) (OSCARS-ARRIVALS)

Who: Actress Reese Witherspoon

Where: At the 83rd Academy Awards in Los Angeles

Wearing: A classic strapless black Armani Prive gown with a white band around the bust, teamed with a Bardot-esque ponytail

Verdict: I have to admit I do love this 60s look, but come on I can’t be the only one thinking it looks a little like Julia Roberts’ vintage Valentino Oscar gown can I? I even think the Barbie-esque hair is something that Julia would work as well.

Hey, nothing wrong with looking like Julia – she is stunning after-all, but come on Reese you ain’t half bad yourself!!!

OK, back to the dress, it is simple-yet-elegant, I like it I don’t love it. What I do love is the hair – a high pony tail on her looks amazing.

I am loving the tweets going round that are saying “dress by Armani, hair by Barbie” – that definitely gets my vote!!

Golden Globes: Megan Fox Chic in Armani Prive

Who: Actress Megan Fox

Where: At the 68th annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California

Wearing: A custom pale pink Giorgio Armani Prive evening gown, featuring an asymmetrical Swarovski adorned strap that was woven through a fitted bustier, layered with silk and Swarovski crystals. Finished off with a high front slit, open cut-out back and a cascading chiffon train. To pair this gorgeous dress Megan wore Brian Atwood’s Martina shoes with crystal heel

Verdict: Well Megan has definitely revived old Hollywood glamour with this look, she looks radiant. I must admit I would have loved to see her in a shot with Angie as she really is a mini-me. This dress is exquisite it in its detailing, and I love the Swarovski layered panels to the bust. Glamourous and graceful – as always Megan is one of my favourite stars to see on the red carpet

Who: Nominated actress Anne Hathaway *sadly did not win*

Where: At the 68th annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California

Wearing: A bronze Armani Privé gown from the autumn/winter 2010 couture collection fully embellished with pailettes and Swarovski crystal, featuring huge shoulders, long fitted sleeves and a gorgeous low open back

Verdict: This gown was the finale of the Armani Privé collection when it hit the runway, and it shined tonight on the red carpet. As soon as I saw it I was like Rachel Zoe has done good, and Anne will definatly be on the best dressed list in the morning.

I love long sleeves, open backs and trains on a gown and this has it all, add into the mix an extremely charming and gorgeous Anne Hathaway and for me you have one of the best dressed of the night.
