One thing I like about these smaller red carpet events is that the people who attend them don't necessarily have designers giving them clothes or stylists and makeup artists helping them out. The people are more likely to wear what they already have and to do their makeup and hair themselves. Therefore, I'm more interested in whether they chose outfits that flatter them and suit the occasion and I try to be less harsh in my critiques.
As usual, I'm only looking at the women's outfits on the red carpet. See all the photos after the jump.

I want to like this, I really do. But there's something about the beaded stripes paired with the periwinkle ombre chiffon that I just don't like. The colours suit her but the dress style isn't flattering.

This is the most formal gown worn on this red carpet. I love the ombre effect (I'm a sucker for ombre) and her hair and jewelry is quite lovely. The dress itself is lovely and definitely suits her.
While I love the stripes on this dress, the style appears to be a little more beach cover-up than red carpet dress. Still, it fits her well. I love her hair which is both polished and a bit casual - perfect for this kind of event.

She looks like she's going to a PTA meeting rather than an award show. It's a very practical, put-together look. I love the coat.
She is so beautiful and I love this outfit on her. The colour suits her, she looks comfortable and dressy, and she looks put-together.
The colour, fit, and style of this dress definitely suit her. Her boobs do appear to be trying to escape but it looks like they won't get far.

You don't see a formal dress made out of a print all that often but this one looks great. I love the grey panels in the center and the black panels on the bodice. She'd look a whole lot better if she just smiled, however.
