SAG Awards: Kerry Washington In Rodarte

Kerry Washington, Rodarte, SAG AwardsWho: Kerry Washington

Where: At the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless white silk tulle Rodarte gown featuring an embellished bodice with Swarovski Elements and silver lace around the hemline and back, teamed with a silver Judith Leiber clutch, white Christian Louboutin heels, and jewellery from Fred Leighton

Verdict: Kerry Washington is fast becoming on of my favourite red carpet stars as I just don’t know what she is going to wear, and like Diane Kruger she seems to have an ability to wear near enough anything and look incredible.

This Rodarte gown was not only stunning on her but a little unexpected, which is probably why it was one of my favourite looks from the SAG Awards red carpet. Normally white gowns don’t work for me on the red carpet, but this dress has an edgy quality with the structured embellished bodice, which is complemented nicely with the soft lace-trimmed skirt.

Finishing off her gorgeous look were stunning diamond jewels from Fred Leighton, I love her ’50s platinum drop earrings and that metallic Judith Leiber box clutch is perfection. Then add in her flawless make-up and up-do and this for me is a perfect red carpet look.

Cannes 2011: Kirsten Dunst Wears Rodarte

Who: Kirsten Dunst

Where: At the Melancholia premiere during the 2011 Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: A polka dot halterneck Rodarte gown with mermaid hem, teamed with Bulgari jewels. Kirsten is wearing a pair Astrale earrings in white gold adorned with diamonds, a white gold ring and a vintage bracelet in platinum set with diamonds and emeralds

Verdict: I am not always the biggest fan of Kirsten Dunst, but I have to give it to her this is a great Rodarte gown, and it does seem the perfect debut for the brand in Cannes. I know I couldn’t believe it either. I always think mermaid silhouettes are the most elegant on the red carpet, they just add an extra sparkle of glamour, and I love the polka dots on this one.

Jameson Empire Awards: Keira Knightley Sparkles in Nude Rodarte

Who: Actress Keira Knightley

Where: At the Jameson Empire Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel

Wearing: A nude embellished Rodarte dress from the spring 2011 collection, with cut-out shoulders, ruffles and collar detailing, teamed with black heels

Verdict: I know that some will despise this look, but probably the things that most people don’t like I love. From the granny vibe of the cut *yes I do love it*, to the 80’s cut-out shoulders and shimmering embellishments, and then we have the ruffles – divine. The only thing I am not as keen on are the black heels, making me wonder what the runway look was teamed with as these don’t quite work for me.

Who: Best actress nominee, Natalie Portman, for her role in Black Swan

Where: At the 83rd Academy Awards in Hollywood

Wearing: A plum silk chiffon draped custom made Rodarte gown teamed with Jimmy Choo heels, Roger Vivier clutch and Tiffany rubellite tassel earrings with rose-cut diamonds

Verdict: Well we nearly didn’t see Natalie on the red carpet as she was last to arrive, maybe that was to avoid the “was Dior your original choice for tonight?”.

I like this gown, I just wasn’t blown away by it, I was expecting a lot more considering she is the hot favourite to take away the Oscar.

I like the way the off-the-shoulder gown frames her baby bump, and the draping really does create a gorgeous silhouette. Also the colour is a striking colour on her. But what makes this outfit has to be those Tiffany tassel earrings – they are stunning.
