Alexa Chung In Emilia Wickstead – 2014 British Fashion Awards

Alexa Chung In Emilia Wickstead - 2014 British Fashion Awards

Alexa Chung was also among the modish mix at the 2014 British Fashion Awards, hosted at the London Coliseum in London, England on Monday (December 1).

She donned an Emilia Wickstead collared frock that was prim and proper, thanks to a lined version of the runway version, echoing the ladylike theme of her entrance at the BFA Nominees Dinner a couple nights before.

She even wore the same pair of black retro, ankle-strap shoes and bold-red lip.

While the structure of the dress could seem a bit stiff, the shimmery fabric and leg-peeking front slit add a lighthearted touch.

The statement Charlotte Olympia clutch also brought punchy playfulness to the more buttoned-up look. The bright-blue handbag was every bit of whimsical fun with its takeout container shape and colourful insect embroidery.

Michelle Dockery in Erdem – 2014 British Fashion Awards

Michelle Dockery in Erdem - 2014 British Fashion Awards

Michelle Dockery returned to the red carpet at the 2014 British Fashion Awards, hosted at the London Coliseum in London, England on Monday (December 1), to present designer Erdem Moralioğlu with the Womenswear Designer of the Year trophy.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ actress naturally opted for an Erdem Spring 2015 dress, which she represented beautifully although I had every intention of passing it off as a bit cluttered and chaotic for comfort.

But the bold and botanical statement ultimately proved to grow on me with every passing glance, as Michelle carried off the embroidered layers of fronds and greenery with characteristic elegance.

The sheer, sexy peekaboo detailing only added to the dark mystique of the design, which was counteracted by a sense of Victorian properness via the high neckline and ankle-grazing length.

A slightly unkempt updo and desert-rose-toned makeup only added to the intrigue. She could have stepped off the runway herself.

Olivia Palermo In Emilia Wickstead – 2014 British Fashion Awards

Olivia Palermo In Emilia Wickstead - 2014 British Fashion Awards

Olivia Palermo attended the 2014 British Fashion Awards, held at the London Coliseum in London, England on Monday (December 1).

The socialite dressed in an Emilia Wickstead Spring 2015 front-slit ball skirt, which she opted to pair with a black sparkly shirt as opposed to the runway’s ivory bodysuit.

If it weren’t for the ill-placed, saggy pocket detailing on the top and the wrinkles on the wraparound skirt’s hemline, I would have been more drawn to this look. The lemon-meringue hue is tantalizing, after all.

Olivia topped it off with a smoky eye and straight, centre-parted locks, with her star accessory a striped statement clutch.

You may remember that this same Emilia Wickstead skirt was worn by Jena Malone for ‘‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1′ London premiere. I’m still in love with the energy Jena brought to her interpretation of the look.

Charlotte Gainsbourg In Louis Vuitton – 2014 British Fashion Awards

Charlotte Gainsbourg In Louis Vuitton - 2014 British Fashion Awards

Charlotte Gainsbourg attended the 2014 British Fashion Awards on Monday (December 1), hosted at the London Coliseum in London, England.

One thing that can be said for the actress is that she is certainly one for consistency. No shock then that she rocked a head-to-toe Louis Vuitton look from the Spring 2015 collection.

LV designer Nicolas Ghesquiere won the International Designer award, so she was in good company celebrating her favoured label.

The cropped leather motorcycle jacket and patent ankle booties had Charlotte written all over them, as she downplayed the dazzle of the heavily sequined, zipper-front minidress with a dash of biker edge.

She didn’t rock the boat on her beauty look either, continuing her signature no makeup, messy hair standard.

Do you like her sartorial predictability, or are you ready to see something new?

Lily Allen In Vivienne Westwood – 2014 British Fashion Awards

Lily Allen In Vivienne Westwood - 2014 British Fashion Awards

Lily Allen turned heads with her own version of a mullet, as she entered the 2014 British Fashion Awards on Monday (December 1), which were held at the London Coliseum in London, England.

Never one to be a shrinking violet, she continued to indulge her quirky style personality in a Vivienne Westwood Spring 2015 baby-blue gown.

The short, cowl-neck dress was enveloped by a cape at the back, lending itself to a high-low effect. Unfortunately, the look translated as rumpled and ill-fitting.

For better or worse, the devilish styling helped distract attention away from the frock. Attaching a costume-y pair of gold-tipped pink horns within her melon-hued pixie cut, Lily finished the look with similarly silly and puzzling accessories. Nude pumps with teal toecaps and that metal chain handbag belonged nowhere near this concoction.

The devil’s all in the details of this mystifying look. Lily’s guardian fashion angels must have taken the day off.

Mollie King In Patricia Bonaldi – 2014 British Fashion Awards

Mollie King In Patricia Bonaldi - 2014 British Fashion Awards

Mollie King returned to the red carpet, posing solo sans her plus-four from The Saturdays, for the 2014 British Fashion Awards on Monday (December 1), hosted at the London Coliseum in London, England.

The British songstress explored a different side of her style personality, debuting a Patricia Bonaldi Spring 2015 sheer, peekaboo gown that was spun in soft gold metallic embroidery.

The illusion bodice was seemingly a bit constraining, so I find it better to focus on this shimmery dress from the waist down—that is until reaching the black sandals, which would have better served the look in a similar metallic shade.

Mixing the golden goddess angle with vampy edge, she painted on a deep oxblood lip and swept those blonde locks into a rather strange, partless ’do; daresay, it had inklings of a faux mullet of sorts.

What do you make of her entrance?
