The Best and Worst Dressed at The Brit’s

24 Feb

So I’m still catching up with the awards ceremonies! Here are my thoughts on The Brit Awards:

Up and coming star and Critics Choice winner, Jessie J, tops the list in this Quality Street green number. Yes, the Westwood dress is incredibly short, but the top half covers up enough to make it decent, and complimented by the Henry Holland heart suspender tights, Jessie showcased her strong personality through her outfit. What I want to know is how she gets her hair looking so glossy!

Not only was Tinie Tempah named Best Breakthrough Artist, he was also easily the best dressed male. He looked suave in this Dolce and Gabbana white tuxedo jacket, and matching polka dot bow tie. Looking retro, he epitomises geek chic with the addition of his trademark glasses. If only every guy could be this confident with his style eh?

There were quite a few unfortunate style choices, but I thought, as an awards ceremony veteran, Cheryl Cole would know better. The full length Stella McCartney black dress did nothing for her fabulous figure (except show off her 90’s “tramp stamp”). And sequins? Are we back in Winter 2009? The hair resembles a 1980’s mullet and is it just me or has she been a little bit tangoed? Sack the stylist Cheryl!

The Best and Worst Dressed at the BAFTA’s

15 Feb

It’s safe to say that Awards Season is upon us. This week we’ve had The BAFTA’s, The Grammys, The Elle Style Awards and we’ve got the Brits tonight! Here are my personal favourites from the BAFTA’s:

Jessica Alba stole the show in this radiant blue grecian inspired Versace maxi dress. Complimented by her glowing skin, plaited updo and vintage necklace, she looked every bit the Grecian Goddess.

This was closely followed by Helena Bonham Carter, who looked magnificent in Vivienne Westwood. Obviously not trying to be ‘on trend’, instead she looked clasically stylish and elegant embracing her womanliness in this gown and jacket combo. She also took home the gong for Best Supporting Actress, not a bad night for her!

Emma Watson is never far down the list these days when it comes to dressing well, and here she is again. She wore a Valentino asymmetric lace style maxi, thoroughly embracing the pleats trend, and the neutral tone only added to her natural grace and youth. She kept accessories minimal with just a pair of striking gold earrings, which complimented her pixie crop.

Now for the Worst Dressed…. I’m sad to say it’s the beautiful Eva Green. She usually looks stunning, but this Tom Ford dress does nothing for her figure and the colour makes her look almost deathly. I do like the sheer arms, and the ruffle texture, but otherwise it’s all wrong and this frock is more Emily Dickinson than glamourous film star…. Oh Eva!!! Let’s hope she makes up for it at The Oscars.
