Lily Allen was no shrinking violet at the 2014 BAFTAs today (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.
The British songstress, who performed at the awards ceremony, wore her own performance piece on the red carpet in a Vivienne Westwood Couture duchess satin concoction.
She obviously took it upon herself to breathe some vivid life into the evening’s proceedings, colouring outside the lines with this ‘Grande Bubbly Corset Gown’ in coral, pink, orange and magenta.
The spirited, clashing shades of this theatrical ball gown, which was tied with a gigantic bow at the back, weren’t the only attention-grabbers. Lily topped off the look with a pink-fringed hairpiece that radiated from her jet-black updo, along with heavy-handed, flicked black eyeliner.
Sparkling jewels from David Morris were pretty, but easily overpowered by the quirky heft of the ensemble.
It’s almost hard not to at least appreciate the spirit of her funky entrée to the show. It certainly wasn’t boring.
