It must be hard work trotting up the red carpet week after week. Seriously, think about the preparation that goes into finding the perfect dress, and then getting the right makeup, hair, shoes and bag... so many elements which could possibly go wrong! But the most headache-inducing part of red carpet walking, surely, must be making sure you outdo each and every other hottie patottie walking next to you!

These are my picks of who managed to stand out from the crowd this week:

Yummy mummy Gwyneth Paltrow in a little black lacey number with a tuxedo blazer and Alexander McQueen stilletoes at the London premiere of Iron Man; Brummie lass and So You Think You Can Dance? host Cat Deeley at the launch of BritWeek in LA wearing a tight white asymmetrical dress which set off her tan and beachy hair; actress Diane Kruger wearing a one-shouldered Marchesa gown while attending the Night of a Thousand Lights party in NYC; and reality-TV sweetheart Lauren Conrad, in Alexander Wang, at Kayne West's Glow in the Dark tour after-party at Goa.

It's pretty safe to say, spring is most definitely in the air: look at those hemlines creeping up!
