Red Carpet Fashion Awards

The front row at Louis Vuitton was full of glamorous stars.

The US flew the much-loved Sarah Jessica Parker over. Asia did the same with their biggest star, Fan Bingbing, whilst the UK sent Abbey Clancy to represent us.

I mean really? Was Alexa Chung not available?

Whilst the WAG / TV presenter / lads’ mag model doesn’t have the same status as Bingbing or Parker, she did look good on this occasion.

No gimmicks, no exposed bra, just a feathered Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 white coat over a pink satin dress which she accessorized with white LV silver toe-cap pumps.

A ballerina bun and barely-there makeup completed her look.

Abbey Clancy attended the UK launch of Lynx’s first female fragrance at Superdrug on the Strand in London yesterday evening.

The model has recently been trying to shake off her WAG tag, by trying high-fashion looks by Emilio Pucci and befriending Giles Deacon, who designed her wedding dress.

The trouble is, being a footballer’s wife it was inevitable that the WAG uniform would make a return to her closet.

Her bright blue sleeveless Hervé Léger signature bandage dress with a V-neck and a central front zip fastening was teamed with nude pumps.

Smuggling raisins aside, she does look stunning in this dress, which is very event appropriate considering what she was promoting.

Here are the rest of the stars who attended the 2011 British Fashion Awards.

Kristen McMenamy: The American model wore an ice-white Alexander McQueen Fall 2011 organza pearl embroidered dress to go with her ice-white hair.  Her matching McQueen accessories included a filigree skull clutch, python boots and fur scarf.

Stella McCartney: The designer was, of course, in a look from her recent Spring 2012 collection. Her printed jumpsuit epitomizes her chic, laidback style of dressing. Iron-straight hair and black sandals provided the finishing touches.

Caroline Sieber: Like Alexa Chung, the stylist also wore a look from the Christopher Kane Spring 2012 collection. Her iridescent plunging floral-print mini dress was unimaginatively paired with black pumps.

Abbey Clancy was one of the first to arrive on the red carpet at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards 2011 which took place at Banqueting House in London this evening.

The TV presenter/WAG donned an Emilio Pucci dress from the Fall 2011 collection.

Pre-bias aside, those roots just don’t work with this Pucci dress.

She tried to do the sexy, sophisticated thing in this long-sleeve lace-trimmed kaleidoscope print dress with a high neckline and sultry keyhole detail, but she doesn’t have the chops to pull it off.

The only thing I like here are the Christian Louboutin pumps.

Her makeup is also quite horrendous. Who puts lipstick over their natural lip line?
