Take inspiration from the red carpet at the Hollywood Style Awards 2009

Following on from our last edition at the Vh1 Divas event, this time we’re getting inspired by the celebrities treading the red carpet at the Hollywood Style Awards which took place last night.

Whether it be the colour, shape, fabric, hair/makeup or accessories, we take one element of the stars’ red carpet style and channel it into something you can actually shop for yourself on Empora.  Hooray!

Heroes actress Hayden Panettiere works this season’s colour du jour – violet – with metallic accessories and her hair in a pretty up ‘do.  This New Look watermark shift dress replicates the colour perfectly and elements of the waistband and pleating, but instead has a pretty sweetheart neckline.

We’ll be honest.  What grabbed us most about Lauren Conrad‘s look wasn’t the bold floral pattern on her dress, or even her spiked heel platforms (although both are amazing!)  Nope, what made us look twice was her vibrant fuchsia lipstick, a look we don’t see on her very often but which we love.  It’s inspired us to go fuchsia ourselves in this BCBGMaxAzria ruffle frock – simply add a skinny belt a la Lauren to cinch in the waist and you’ll be good to go!

Kim Kardashian looks like a Hollywood starlet of old, working her ultra-feminine curves in this gorgeous white dress which wraps and clings in all the right places.  Issa’s 3/4 length dress doesn’t have quite the same cling-factor, but with it’s plunging neckline and the same wraps and pleats around the waist and hips, it will have you looking every inch the ingénue.  Just add old Hollywood glamour waves to your hair, some smokey eye makeup – and some shoulder pads if you wish!

While we wouldn’t be brave enough to wear this risqué see-through lacey number (although if we had Sophia Bush‘s legs we might consider that hem length too!), we are loving the gothic glamour vibe this dress is sending out.  A touch of lace is all that is needed to recreate it, so we’ve selected this lace top dress from New Look, which we’d wear with a slicked-back ponytail and some lush drop earrings.
