Runway To “Love Ball” – Leona Lewis In William Tempest

Leona Lewis performed at the “Love Ball London” event in London hosted by Natalia Vodianova and Harper’s Bazaar this week.

The British singer is determined to shake off the “boring” tag by trying add a bit of sexy edginess to her look.

At this event she wore a copper William Tempest Spring 2010 one-sleeved gown with a padded shoulder.

I like that Leona is experimenting with fashion, but I do not like this gown on her as it doesn’t flatter her figure and the bodice is ill-fitting.

Her edgier looks don’t feel natural at all but there is hope. Rihanna started out wearing bubblegum pink Herve Leger dresses and look at her now.

*Sings* “It will all get better in time.” I hope.

Leona used this event to show off her new tattoo which runs from the nape of her neck to the middle of her back.

If she shaves one side of her head I will totally give up on her.

    Like Alicia Keys, edgy doesn’t work on Leona Lewis. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but she makes Rihanna’s very contrived edgy look real and effortless.
    Maybe that tatt was inspired by VB’s tatt?

    Oh, goodness, I thought it was a scar. Like she’d just had some really serious back surgery.

    I don’t know how in the world you’re managing to get all these great posts up, FC. I applaud your energy, yours is my favourite blog. It’s not even a blog, it’s a superblog!! x

    I like her hair and make up, that is all.

    on second thought, this is probably by far the ugliest dress i’ve seen this year.

    This dress us dreadful on both ladies. Of all the dresses available, why on earth would anyone choose this one? Leona, you are trying too hard. Everyone is allowed a fashion mistake, but this is a calamity.It actually looks like my nine year old daughter made it – all wrong : colour, fabric, shape ………..

    Yuck! I agree. Leona is not edgy, and I don’t know why she would want to be. The dress is ugly on her and the model.
    The hair was very pretty in the back, but the hair stylist could have done a better job with the front.
    Is it me, or does that dress make her look short.

    I like the tattoo and I like the dress, I think she looks good.

  9. Leo February 25, 2010 at 13:29 #

    She took a terrible dress and made it even worst. Nightmares.

  10. Linda February 25, 2010 at 13:23 #

    I like this. At very first glance, I thought Yuck, but it’s really been growing on me.

    Don’t like it! It seems like she’s trying so hard to find her style and she just can’t settle for one thing, as it doesn’t suit her. Maybe she should hire a stylist or, if she has one, change him?

  12. Caroline February 25, 2010 at 12:03 #

    Yeh its really not a great colour on her! I’m so glad she’s moved away from the corset belts though and I actually really like her hair.

  13. Nicola February 25, 2010 at 11:38 #

    She’s trying give her some slack! But she’s going for the wrong type of look. She suits a feminine, classier look. She doesn’t need to go this extreme (just no corset dresses or waist belts!)

  14. mandy February 25, 2010 at 11:37 #

    “If she shaves one side of her head I will totally give up on her.”. HAHAHAHAHA FC ur so funny!!!!!

  15. Tania February 25, 2010 at 11:15 #

    Lol, she would never shave the side of her head.
    Three words me no likey!

  16. nicky February 25, 2010 at 10:04 #

    really not flattering at all. she looks stumpy. the shiny material also looks extremely tacky on her.

  17. Nikki February 25, 2010 at 10:00 #

    Kudos on trying something new, unfortunately, it doesn’t work this time. There is something off about the gown. The style, color, material, maybe? And those bangles don’t do anything either. She’s in her freshman stage in edgy fashion, so I hope she does better next time. Or maybe just try another style instead.

  18. Lizzie February 25, 2010 at 09:53 #

    Dreadful! More worryingly she must have looked in a mirror before she went out and thought she looked good!

  19. shubby doo February 25, 2010 at 09:48 #

    yuck on the colour…double yuck on everything else…this is totally sad…it’s on the other side of bad.

    i guess she’ll get a style when she gets a personality

  20. wilwarin February 25, 2010 at 09:23 #

    blah… it’s yuk… it screams oh i wanna be so egdy because that’s so cool now… :S

  21. mm February 25, 2010 at 09:16 #

    Yuck! She looks like carmel and who eats carmel anymore? LOL I dont like her hair either.

  22. Jasmine February 25, 2010 at 09:13 #

    At least her hair looks good.

  23. robbie February 25, 2010 at 09:07 #

    yet another failed attempt at being edgy. she will never shake off the boring tag, because she is boring just because she is trying to wear edgy clothes doesnt mean she wont be boring she has to learn that.

    the tattoo is just so tacky. but that dress quite possibly the most tackiest dress i have ever seen.
