Paloma Faith In Nicholas Oakwell Couture – Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Paloma Faith In Nicholas Oakwell Couture - Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Paloma Faith attended the Glamour Women of the Year Awards held at Berkeley Square Gardens on Tuesday (June 3) in London, England, where she picked up the UK Solo Artist award.

As you know, I have a huge soft spot for all things Paloma Faith.

Never one to fail to bring drama to the red carpet, I was delighted to see her glide down the carpet on this occasion working this Nicholas Oakwell Couture black sheer gown with floral appliqués from the Fall 2013 collection.

It’s a Paloma gown through and through. Opting not to wear a trademark fascinator, she styled her strawberry-blonde locks into a chic updo, just adding touches of red via her lip and nails.

Some might be put off by the sheerness, but considering Rihanna’s sheer look from the CFDA Fashion Awards, this is tame.

You may remember that Gillian Anderson wore this same dress to the Harper’s Bazaar Woman of the Year awards back in November. She opted to line the gown, giving it a different look and feel entirely.

    Ahh, I’m on the fence on this one. I like the sheerer effect compared to Gillian’s dress (which I didn’t like at all), it makes the flowers finding their way up the dress stand out more. But I am not keen on seeing the underwear. I wonder if a body would have helped (think Charlize in Dior http://www.redcarpet-fashionawards.com/2014/05/16/charlize-theron-christian-dior-million-ways-die-west-la-premiere/ ).

    Wished she lined it. Over the sheer trend

    This would’ve been a great look had she lined it.

    I should dislike this but I don’t

    I love Paloma in the gown, I just wish she chose another gown from the collection, as every piece is right up her alley, and Nicholas Oakwell loves to dress her.

    I also wish she wore a contrasting dress underneath the gown to make it very different than Gillian’s.
