Elle MacPherson In Tom Ford – 2012 National Television Awards

Elle MacPherson joined Tess Daly and Laura Whitmore on the red carpet for the 2012 National Television Awards in London last night.

She wore a Tom Ford Fall 2011 gunmetal-grey embellished gown with a high neckline, which we’ve already seen on Anne Hathaway.

I didn’t like it back then and I dislike it even more now, especially with that braid accented ponytail.

What really kills Elle’s look for me is the inclusion of the diamond-encrusted statement earrings with so much embellishment on the neckline.

Too much of a muchness.

    the dress looks horribly cheap. she is beautiful but this whole look just screams drag queen especially the hair.

  2. Katie January 27, 2012 at 16:34 #

    I think this does nothing for her

    When the collection came out, I didn’t mind the dress but I wasn’t a huge fan with Anne wore it and this is even worse with the bad hair and the earrings. There are a lot of worst dressed contenders this week lol.

    i think she looks fantastic. that dress hugs her in all the right places and while it looks like a bit too much in some respects, i don’t think a girl like elle macpherson ever goes unnoticed regardless of what she wears. she loves the flashbulbs and they love her back. this look matches her persona perfectly.

    she looks a bit like a drag queen

    When you cover up Elle’s or the model’s head and just look at the dress… it is massively fugly – such a bad choice

  7. Dhppy January 27, 2012 at 05:59 #

    She looks luminous!

  8. d January 27, 2012 at 02:31 #

    she surely is beautiful!!! a different combo of hairstyle/makeup/clutch/shoes might be able to save the dress!

      agree with d

    I think the main problem is the dress, I imagine that even with good styling, the dress itself is not flattering, it’s restrictive, the color is the ugly grey, it’s a tad short.

    It’s UGLY

    hmmm not nice, the dress looks horrible with her colouring, let alone the awful styling

  11. Ginger January 26, 2012 at 22:11 #

    Wow, the Tom Ford asthetic has really descended into tackiness. I think the dress would be improved if one element was removed: maybe the sleeves, or the sheerness in the body, IDK. But the lace plus the sheerness plus the sleeves plus the beading is exhausting! Her overstyling does not help.

  12. GirlOne January 26, 2012 at 21:15 #

    Not a fan of that look, either. But BOY, her face looks more youthful than mine and I am less than half her age!

    • Terry January 27, 2012 at 13:12 #

      This is not being youthful. It’s Botox.

  13. marina January 26, 2012 at 20:43 #

    I like it much better on Elle’s body than Anne’s. The styling is not good, but I like the dress, it is still winter after all.

  14. Lola January 26, 2012 at 20:32 #

    Well you need a killer bod to pull this off … Check – she certainly is a stunningly beautiful woman check – she was never famius for her excellent taste check … She used to be a model all they do is wear clothes…

    I liked this on Anne Hathaway on TV, it looks worse in pics. Elle’s styling is terrible.

  16. Ayvee January 26, 2012 at 19:38 #

    Oh my goodness! Those earrings are a big statement! Those are Elizabeth Taylor’s diamond chandelier earrings that sold at an auction. Was Elle the buyer or did she borrow these from a jewelry company.

    ET’s earrings:

      I think you are right…they look very much like them

  17. TeaAtTwo January 26, 2012 at 18:02 #

    The only people I can picture this being a great dress for are Cher and Jane Fonda.

  18. EmmaWoodhouse January 26, 2012 at 18:01 #

    I hated this on Anne Hathaway and it’s even worse here! This is such an ugly dress–constrictive and unflattering.

  19. CTgirl January 26, 2012 at 17:55 #

    Too much of everything – hair, jewelry, dress . . .

  20. bas January 26, 2012 at 17:27 #

    simply horrible… the ponytail is killing me

  21. mj January 26, 2012 at 17:08 #

    The ponytail kills it. I always feel like she dresses and styles herself too young, so it comes off as kind of cheap and tacky. It’s totally possible to be sexy, fun and age appropriate.

  22. Emi January 26, 2012 at 17:01 #

    I only like the gorgeous dress and the make up. Ugly hairstyle, ugly shoes, wrong clutch, the dress should have spoken itself.

  23. Alina January 26, 2012 at 16:59 #


  24. Jack January 26, 2012 at 16:47 #

    she looks like Ursula Andress… Btw she reminds me of the old Thierry Mugler style in George Michael’s “Too Funky” video… come on, she can afford it, she’s a UberModel! :))


  25. gabis January 26, 2012 at 16:35 #

    The dress is really gorgeous, but Elle’s exaggerated – and may I say slightly tacky – style just totally ruins it.

  26. Nat39 January 26, 2012 at 16:30 #

    This is one major sparkle & embellishment overload. No need for those statement earrings whatsoever, agree, should´ve ditched them along with that braid ponytail, and opted for a more dramatic makeup instead.
