Portia Freeman In Nicholas Oakwell Couture – 2012 British Fashion Awards

Portia Freeman took to the red carpet at the Savoy Hotel in London for the 2012 British Fashion Awards.

The model wore a Nicholas Oakwell Couture gown for the occasion.

Her bronze-and-black long-sleeve gown is a beaded version of the nude gown which took to the runway during the designer’s Fall 2012 Couture collection.

A textured clutch with the same pattern as her dress and Nicholas Kirkwood for Nicholas Oakwell sandals accessorized her look.

This is a sexy, cool look for the statuesque beauty.

    I find this look very unattractive on such a sexy woman. Though I like the colour palette,it almost looks dowdy in the dark. The beads add shimmer, but I would have preferred something more outstanding at a Fashion Award show.

    The bronze-and-black version of the gown feels so heavy and gloomy, it almost drags her down/overwhelms her. Not a fan of her very unnaturally-looking overly blonde hair.

    I like the colors of her dress better than the runway. She looks great.

      Me too.

    I don’t think that the gown is perfectly fitted on her and I don’t like her hair.

    I dislike the color of her dress……..I would have preferred the runway color but I guess with her bleached blonde hair that would have been terrible….. she just looks OK to me

    I kind of like the moody darkness of the bronze/black version against the platinum blond hair. I think it would’ve been better if it had been a tad more fitted though.

    Dark and boring. Love the runway version.

    This dress looks too big for her. It overwhelms her. She is drowning in dress. Not a fan.

    I usually like Oakwell’s vintagey looks but this is kind of hideous, imo like a ’70s carpet…also her hair looks very fake.

    I much prefer it on the runway. I don’t like the color or the sheen on Freeman’s version and together, they really sort of depress me.

    Not liking anything about this look.

    I’m inclined to like the runway version, but there is just one big mess on the right: the brown and black (and blonde!), the fabric… sorry, “no” for me.
