Last night in New York, Whitney Port attended a benefit for Cancer sponsored by Guess by Marciano and ELLE Magazine wearing a black Alice band in her hair and red lipstick, a look we don't typically see on her. That's why I can't help but think that she's likely gotten her beauty influence from none other than Mad Men screen siren January Jones at this year's Golden Globe Awards. I love this look and find it elegant and dressy. Paired with their beautiful eyes and milky glowing skin, I think both girls have pulled off this style quite nicely. Do you ever mimic red carpet beauty looks that you see on celebrities?
Award season was in full swing this week, from the Critics' Choice Awards and Golden Globes in the States to the National Television Awards in the UK and the Brit and BAFTA nomination announcements. Take my quiz to see how well you've been paying attention!
Marchesa has long been a red carpet staple. The British design house creates classic, floor sweeping gowns which are adored by celebrities. Recently, several gorgeous girls have worn Georgina Chapman's designs on the red carpet including Kate Hudson and Anna Kendrick at the Golden Globe awards. Also, late last year Fergie wore a one shoulder Marchesa dress to the New York premiere of Nine. Out of these three, who do you think wore Marchesa best?
Livia runs an environmentally friendly boutique, Eco Age in West London and explained all about her gown on her Vogue blog, "The re-purposed Christiana Couture wedding dress was a HUGE success in the sense that I don't think I’ve ever had so many compliments for a dress in one night." Her eco stance has now landed her the role of reporting on the carbon footprint of dresses throughout award season.
It seems like celebrities better choose their dresses very carefully in 2010 or risk being named and shamed. Are you impressed by Livia's efforts to help the environment yet remaining chic?
Following the Golden Globe Awards last night, there were some huge parties to celebrate where some celebs that attended the ceremony — and some that didn't — showed up to party the night away. While Taylor Lautner was at the ceremony, he hung out with Glee's Matthew Morrison and was joined at an afterparty by his New Moon costars Ashley Green and Kellan Lutz. Lindsay Lohan showed up in a sparkling minidress with a hood, while Ashley Olsen wore a bright blue dress to party with Justin Bartha.
Gossip Girl stars Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr were in a rush to get into the party, while Chloe Sevigny changed out of her ceremony dress — which ripped while she was onstage collecting her award! Drew Barrymore and Justin Long partied together, and Sandra Bullock greeted Jaime Pressley with a similar kiss to the one she greeted Meryl Streep with at the Critics Choice Awards!

Although, the most prevalent hairstyle at the Golden Globes was the updo, I loved the way that Paula Patton, Diane Kruger, Penelope Cruz and Jennifer Garner wore their hair too. This Old Hollywood, retro-curled, half up, half down look is classic, elegant and stylish. Plus, if you're a fan of the jewels, it also allows you to adorn your hair in diamond clips, or whatever else you fancy. Out of these three actresses, whose hair do you think looked best last night?

Last year, award season was packed with Kate Winslet love. She won so many awards and looked incredibly stylish as she did it. Move forward to 2010, as Kate is presenting rather than receiving and still looks gorgeous this time in Yves Saint Laurent. She was there to deliver the Best Actor award to Jeff Bridges and she did so in a midnight blue gown with an embroidered clutch and platform sandals. What do you think of her look?
There were lots of hot guys on the red carpet at the Golden Globes last night, looking all suited and booted for the formal occasion. Gerard Butler, Taylor Lautner and Matthew Morrison were among those rocking the bow ties last night, while Chace Crawford wore a skinny tie with his suit. Robert Downey Jr went without a tie, while Cory Monteith wore a white one with his shiny Hugo Boss suit.
Gorgeous George Clooney was still rocking his beard, as was Jon Hamm. The Brits were represented by Hugh Laurie, Colin Firth, Kenneth Branagh and the host with the most Ricky Gervais. Lots of guys were on umbrella duty for their ladies, including Joshua Jackson, Josh Duhamel, Nick Cannon and David Arquette who seemed to get in trouble with wife Courteney!

As well as neutral shades, there was a lot of purple on the red carpet at last night's Golden Globes. Stars like Sandra Bullock, Rose Byrne and Jane Krakowski wore deep shades whilst singers Fergie and Leona Lewis went for a lighter hue. It's a great colour and certainly brightened up the rainy award ceremony. Out of these five gorgeous girls, who do you think wore purple best?
It may have been raining on the Golden Globes red carpet last night, but that didn't stop all the female stars showing up in some gorgeous gowns. There were plenty of bright colours as Sandra Bullock and Leona Lewis went for purple, Diane Kruger wore a beautiful hot pink number, Cameron Diaz looked ravishing in red, while Ginnifer Goodwin looked striking in purple. Greys and nude tones were also popular, with Anna Kendrick, Drew Barrymore, Chloe Sevigny among those sporting pale shades.
Anything but basic black was, as usual, a big hit — Glee's Lea Michele wore an eye-catching dress, Glenn Close sparkled in black, Julia Roberts went for a more casual look, while January Jones matched hers to her headband. Carey Mulligan was accompanied by her mum on the red carpet, while Joshua Jackson was a gent and held an umbrella up for Diane as she posed for photos. Drew Barrymore and Justin Long shared a smooch, before she greeted George Clooney with a hug. Meanwhile, Heidi Klum and Seal looked to the heavens — the must have accessory was definitely an umbrella on the red carpet last night!
