Hollywood Fashion Update: The Best and Worst of the Tony Awards 2012

Held last night in New York City, for me the fashion statements at the Tony awards of the year 2012 did not register any better than India’s IIFA awards which took place a day before in Singapore. Catherine Zeta Jones was not there this year to spice things up and those who did show up, failed to sizzle.

I think it’s just that time of the year where except for resort wear, all the best red carpet looks for the current season have already been worn. I mean, Bernadette Peters showed up in the blue version of the red Donna Karan dress Nina Dobrev made supremely famous at the Emmys. She looked beautiful and was one of the best dressed stars last night but it was a bit underwhelming because we had seen it before and done to perfection. Audra Mcdonald looked stunning in a revival of cobalt blue and rounding out the top three best dressed was Beth Behrs in an effective red Naeem Khan gown.

Amanda Seyfried disappointed in an overly busy for night-time-telly Givenchy number, Sheryl Crow didn’t win either in a dull blue lacy number that did nothing for her cheerful personality or great body. The less said about Jessica Chastain who inexplicably put her boobs on reckless display in a lacy Mario Schwab mini dress, the better it will be for everyone.

Bollywood Fashion Update: The Best and Worst of the IIFA Awards 2012

The International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards took place this weekend in Singapore. With the red carpet absence of many fan favourites (seriously, where were A-listers like the Bachchans, the Khans, the Kapoors & the Deols?) As well as fashion favourites (no Sonam Kapoor, no Kangana Ranaut, no Kareena Kapoor, no Twinkle Khanna) we had to make do with whatever was presented to us on the green carpet. So now, without further ado, here’s what was hot and what was lukewarm at IIFA 2012:

Fashion Update: Solange Knowles Stuns in Yellow + More Fascinating Looks from the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards

Fashionwidget’s Favourites

Karolina, Solange & Kate


Zoe & Padma


June, Hilary & Selita

From Zoë Saldaña’s noir sheer cut-out Prabal Gurung to Solange Knowles in a yellow and white Marni mini, the fashions of the CFDA fashion awards were certainly a hot topic for discussion this year. I especially appreciated the understated elegance of Padma Lakshmi’s intricately detailed Naeem Khan gown, in a sea of colourful statement ensembles, I think she managed to stand out in black just like Zoë Saldaña. June Abrose glittered in silver sequins. Hilary Rhonda colour-blocked in cut-out perfection and Selita Ebanks was a vision in white. With the absence of Lady Gaga (a previous CFDA fashion award recipient) who stole the show and not to mention all the attention last year, there was room for all sorts of fashion statements this year. Fashionwidget, narrowed it down to the nine pictures as seen above, we also loved Devon Aoki in her amazing red and black Alice+Olivia strapless gown. Unfortunately, our photographer was unable to snap a photo of her. Never fear, I will re-blog or update this post if I stumble upon a photo of her (in the dress) that I can legally upload.
