2014 MTV EMAs Red Carpet Roundup

2014 MTV EMAs Red Carpet Roundup

The MTV EMAs 2014 took place at The Hydro on Sunday (November 9) in Glasgow, Scotland. I was expecting to be at least entertained by the red carpet arrivals; sadly it was a total bust. Perhaps they could can the event for good if this is the best they could muster for the red carpet.

Ariana Grande: Finally letting her hair down – literally, not metaphorically – the singer showed a more grown-up side to her red carpet dressing. Her black Cristiano Burani gown with cut-outs is basically a copy of a Michael Kors Spring 2013 gown which was much loved by Alicia Keys and Myleene Klass.

Alesha Dixon: Even with its decorative detailing, this Mary Katrantzou ‘Oriane’ shirt dress doesn’t feel glam enough for an awards ceremony. Taking the event out of the equation, I simply adore this bold look styled with fierce Sophia Webster ‘Mila’ cage sandals and a violet lip to die for.

2014 Pride of Britain Awards Red Carpet Roundup

2014 Pride of Britain Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of a few other notables who attended the Pride of Britain Awards held at The Grosvenor House Hotel on Monday (October 6) in London, England.

Alesha Dixon: The ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge opted to flip the script, wearing a suit instead of a dress. The Ong-Oaj Pairam printed suit with leather patches was one of the sexiest looks on the red carpet despite all the attention-seeking plunging necklines and thigh-high slits.

Rachel Stevens: The singer, who hasn’t aged a day since her S Club 7 days, wore a David Koma Fall 2014 LBD, with the designer’s signature leather detailing adding a layer of sex appeal to the look. I perhaps would’ve been more excited about this look had she taken the dress up a few inches, but I do love her accessories, including a silver Anya Hindmarch ‘Crisp Packet’ clutch and teal-green Jimmy Choo pumps. You may remember that Jessica Alba wore a similar look to the Spike TV’s ‘Guys Choice’ awards.

Kara Tointon: The actress wore a signature lace Lover ‘Libra’ high-neck cap-sleeved frock which doesn’t feel quite right for the occasion, which is surprising considering she usually serves up high glamour on every occasion. I also can’t get past the makeup in this instance, which is making her appear rather ghostly.

Who Wore House of Holland Better…Alesha Dixon, Vanessa White or Gillian Jacobs?

Who wore house of holland better

This starburst print House of Holland Resort 2014 navy and coral dress has had three outings by three lovely ladies.

Alesha Dixon was the first to wear the dress while promoting her new fragrance, ‘Rose Quartz’ back in January, followed by Vanessa White who wore hers to the International Fashion Showcase in London and Gillian Jacobs who wore hers to PalyFest’s honouring of ‘Community’.

With Alesha opting for Sophia Webster coral shoes, Vanessa going for black pumps and Gillian Jacobs wearing navy Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, we can quickly discount Vanessa.

Henry Holland’s dresses evoke fun and free spirit and the shoes that matched that ethos were the coral Sophia Webster sandals, so Alesha wins for me.

Alesha Dixon In Peter Pilotto – Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Alesha Dixon In Peter Pilotto - Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Alesha Dixon attended the Glamour Women of the Year Awards held at Berkeley Square Gardens on Tuesday (June 3) in London, England.

The TV presenter’s look was much improved following the House of Holland hiccup.

Here she looks divine wearing a Peter Pilotto Spring 2014 frock, with interesting elements including the red and white heritage tweed, black floral appliqués and multi-sequin degrade square panels on the skirt and bodice.

Adding just a glossy red lip, glossier curls and Saint Laurent nude pumps, the photo-ready look strikes the perfect balance between ladylike and contemporary.

Alesha Dixon In House of Holland – FiFi UK Fragrance Awards

Alesha Dixon In House of Holland - FiFi UK Fragrance Awards

Alesha Dixon attended the FiFi UK Fragrance Awards held at The Brewery on Thursday (May 15) in London, England.

The ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge opted for a very casual look for an awards ceremony, wearing a House of Holland mini dress inspired by a baseball jersey.

Her neon-pink and white striped frock with blue trims and blue motifs doesn’t work for me as an evening look, despite the efforts to make it so with the gold ankle-strap heels.

This is a daywear look at best. I would’ve liked to have seen more effort from Alesha. This is really disappointing, and it has nothing to do with Cannes heightening my thirst for glamour.

Alesha Dixon In Tibi – ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ London Photocall

Alesha Dixon In Tibi - 'Britain's Got Talent' London PhotocallAlesha Dixon was back on the red carpet today (April 9) for the ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ photo call in at St. Luke’s Church in London, England, where she was accompanied by a very special guest—her adorable pooch, Prince.

The new mom and BGT judge worked a sophisticated yet style-forward entrance, flaunting her figure in a Tibi embellished white crop top and a pleated and textured, tea-length ball skirt.

She juxtaposed the more charming nature of her ensemble with the moodier moment of her dramatic dip-dyed blonde locks worn board straight and that deep oxblood lip.

Alesha’s fashion selections can be hit or miss, so how does this look rank?
