2010 AFI Awards – What did you think of the red carpet?

December 16, 2010

I have taken a few days to prepare this post because I wanted to cruise all the images I could find of the fashion from the red carpet, and well, what can I say.  I think disappointing is probably the word to sum it up.  There were some beautiful garments, but it wasn’t stunning.

In fact it was so ‘yawn’ that I did consider not bothering to do my wrap up at all.  So forgive me that there are not many on the ‘best’ list.  Of course we also have a few for the ‘what were they thinking’ list!

Remember these are my opinions, I welcome you to agree or disagree, maybe I missed someone or something fantastic!  Let me know!

First up I have Alex Dimitriades and his girlfriend.  From this angle this dress looks stunning.

My other favourite is this dress on Claudia Karvan.  I wish I could see the detail better and exactly how that waist line fits.  But it is the classic black dress with a twist and with a few simple but large bangles on her left hand she offsets the one shoulder look perfectly.

Now to the dresses that I thought were not right…

To Neighbours actress Jane Hall, I say yes to the beach, no to AFI awards on this dress.  Beautiful as it is, to me it is not a red carpet dress!

Ummm, I don’t even know where to start on this one.  It is hard to tell that it is even a dress.  The photo is of Bridie O’Leary and Ben Mendelsohn.  I am all for making a statement but…

Anyway, I just want to say come on Australia, we have awesome fashion designers here and a really funky sense of style.  All those dresses at the Spring Carnival were beautiful, why can’t we see more of that on our red carpet?
