84th Oscars: Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton

Who: Best Actress nominee Michelle Williams

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

Wearing: A red/coral/burnt orange *delete as appropriate* bustier Louis Vuitton couture gown with on-trend peplum detailing in burnt silk mousseline and organza ribbons done in layers to create a 3D effect, which took more than 300 hours to create; this was finished with Fred Leighton jewels, Bottega Veneta pink clutch and Christian Louboutin heels

Verdict: Louis Vuitton is calling this burnt orange, Michelle called it coral, and I have to admit on screen and in pictures it looks red, whatever the shade this is a knock-out dress. I love that Michelle took a risk with this quirky gown with the colour, the peplum and bow detailing to the waist – it all makes this couture gown standout on the red carpet. It also works amazingly with her blonde pixie cut and her red lippy.

It is just a shame that she didn’t win the Best Actress gong as this dress deserved the attention of an Oscar-winner. But I am sure that this dress will hit the best dressed lists – for me I think it just comes in second behind Gwyneth Paltrow.

SAG Awards: Michelle Williams In Valentino

Who: Actress Michelle Williams

Where: At the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards held at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A red silk Valentino dress from the pre-fall 2012 collection with lace detailing and a curved shaped hemline, teamed with a gold Lanvin box clutch, Fred Leighton jewels and matching red satin Roger Vivier heels

Verdict: At the Golden Globes I loved her velvet Jason Wu because it was a little different, and even though red is Valentino’s signature style, this dress had a different edge to it with the lace detailing, the curved hem and the gathering to the side. It looks amazing on her and I am so glad that she paired the dress with matching coloured heels as the combination together looks stunning.

Golden Globes: Michelle Williams In Jason Wu

Who: Golden Globe-winning actress Michelle Williams

Where: At the 69th Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles

Wearing: An amethyst coloured burn-out velvet Jason Wu column gown with three-quarter sleeves, accessorised with a Judith Leiber clutch, and a vintage Fred Leighton headband

Verdict: I am sure this look could go either way for Michelle, for me I love this velvet gown it has something a little different to it, but I am sure for a lot this will just be so far from a traditional awards gown that it will make its way onto worst dressed lists. As well as the colour being perfect, the dress itself looks incredible on her, but what makes it for me is that touch of Twenties class with the vintage headband. Out of all the headbands that rocked the red carpet from Charlize Theron to Busy Phillips I think Michelle’s works the best.

Forevermark and InStyle: Michelle Williams In Versace

Who: Actress Michelle Williams

Where: At the Forevermark & InStyle Beauty & Brilliance Celebration in Beverly Hills, California

Wearing: Head-to-toe Versace, with a white cocktail dress from the spring/summer 2012 collection, which features a studded belt and chiffon draping to the side; the look is finished off with Versace metallic strappy heels and jewels from Forevermark

Verdict: Firstly, how hot is her strawberry blonde pixie crop looking – love it!! Secondly, how amazing is the pleated draping to the side – it totally makes the dress. Everything about this look is perfection for me, I love her hair, her striking red lippy, and most of all how amazing does that dress looks amazing on her – she is stunning.

I also love that she went for a mini-dress, as with the award season upon us I find that everything seems to start skimming the floor.
