Best dressed: Women of the Year Awards 2009

Kylie might have won Woman of the Year at Glamour magazine's annual awards last night but she faced some stiff competition in the sartorial stakes on the red carpet last night. Henry Holland was stressing about his shoe dilemma and sweating in a 100% wool jacket, Fearne Cotton was worrying that her self-done manicure wouldn't live up to scratch, and Alexa Chung arrived back on our shores showing a stint in NYC hasn't harmed her fashion credentials. Let's take a look at fashion's best-dressed contenders...

  

The ones who are storming ahead...
Love the way Alexa Chung teams her nude scalloped dress with super-cute Chanel booties, and special note to Mamma Mia's Amanda Seyfried in a statement Peter Pilotto dress.

    

The ones who dared to bare some serious skin....
Feathers weren't enough for Kylie. She dip-dyed them leopard print.
Estelle wowed in a Stella McCartney minidress.
Becki Newton went for a strapless print that wouldn't look out of place in the Ugly Betty office.

    

The oh-you're-wearing-sequins-too club...
Models Jacquetta Wheeler and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley represented Gucci's Frida Giannini, who won Fashion Designer of the Year, by wearing Gucci sequinned numbers. Wonder how they felt about WAG Abi Clancy joining their gang...

  

The ones who got it, well, a bit wrong...
Love the bold colour choice Michelle Ryan, but the puff sleeves and tie waist are a little too 10-year-old birthday party for us. And Fearne Cotton, the manicure was brilliant but we're not sure about this tiered frock. PS. Beauty note: do not model your hairstyle on Daryl Hannah circa. Splash years.

                                       

And finally, could we please have a word with your stylist Pixie Geldof? We get that you're a glunge queen who loves the rock. And we love you. But a little bit of glamour on the red carpet wouldn't hurt every now and then you know...
