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.

2013 Pride of Britain Awards Red Carpet Roundup

2013 Pride of Britain Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of the good, the bad and the ugly at the 2013 Pride of Britain Awards held at Grosvenor House in London yesterday evening. I will let you decide who belongs in which category.

Tess Daly: The ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ host wore an Emilio Pucci Fall 2013 LBD featuring a sexy side slit, sheer sleeves and slash inserts. Possibly the first to get her footwear right on this red carpet, she added gold-metallic pumps to her look. I love her golden waves, but frown upon the suitcase-sized clutch she opted for. You may remember that Kelly Rowland wore this same dress back in January.

Katherine Jenkins: I was shocked to see Katherine not wearing a gown. Instead, she selected an eggplant Lanvin one-shoulder dress styled with conservative black pumps.

Sarah Harding: The former Girls Aloud singer sparkled in a gold short-sleeved gown featuring sheer embellished panels styled with a gold clutch and chic updo. I really liked the gown until the back revealed her ‘Don’t be Bitter. Glitter’ tattoo.

2012 Glamour Women of the Year Awards

Here are the rest of the looks from the 2012 Glamour Women of the Year Awards.

Jessica Brown-Findlay: The actress opted for a very pretty neutral look wearing a Valentino floral dress with nude pumps. One of the very few good looks on this red carpet.

Katherine Jenkins: The singer wore a colourful Mary Katrantzou Spring 2012 strapless dress teamed with nude pumps and blue nail polish.

Alesha Dixon: The talent judge wore a Julien Macdonald Spring 2011 dress. It’s a perfect summery red-carpet look, but we saw this dress on the red carpet almost a year ago when Mollie King wore it to the ‘Harry Potter’ premiere.

Amanda Holden In J’Aton Couture – Britain’s Got Talent Pre-Final Party

Amanda Holden joined Alesha Dixon on the red carpet for the pre-final party for ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ at the Banqueting House in London on Friday.

The actress/judge wore a gorgeous J’Aton Couture gown.

Her nude corset gown with red piping had a beautiful nude tulle overlay which draped from one shoulder. The gown, which also had a thigh-high split, was accented with a tan belt.

The rest of her accessories included a gold cuff, gold YSL Trib Too pumps and a matching Aspinal clutch.

Amanda has been exclusively dressed by the Australian design duo Jacob Luppino and Anthony Pittorino since the start of the finals for BGT.

You may remember that it was the gorgeous Dannii Minogue who introduced us to J’Aton Couture back in her glorious ‘X Factor’ days.

Amanda styled her hair up into a chic updo and completed her look with a ravishing red-hot lip colour.

2010 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Here are just a few of the looks from the 2010 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards which was held at Berkeley Square in London last night.

Lily Allen used to be the belle of these balls. Now she just fades into the background.

Her black Chanel Pre-Fall 2010 dress with sheer sleeves is nice, but forgettable.

Amanda Holden looks nice in her white strapless dress, but I really dislike her mis-match accessories.

Naomie Harris looked stunning in her black and gold embellished dress which has an Egyptian feel to it.

I’m not sure what Diana Vickers is wearing, because I can’t get past those god-awful vintage Ossie Clarke shoes.

“Sheer Infusion Newcomer” Alexandra Burke also opted for an ethnic-inspired black and gold look.

Her beaded black velvet cape was perfectly accessorized with gold jewels and a stunning armlet.

New mum Denise van Outen wore a very summery Alexander McQueen dress, which she paired with silver pumps and a black Chanel bag.

“Radio Personality of the Year” Fearne Cotton opted for a bold colour in this tomato red Roland Klein sheer dress with black studded pumps.

“UK TV Actress of the Year” Billie Piper wore a long black lace trimmed dress which she paired with gold accessories and a stunning Lara Bohnic clutch.

Pixie Lott was my least favourite at this event.  Normally she’s more inspiring.

The same goes for Kelly Rowland.  Her Roberto Cavalli LBD and black pumps combo is just tres boring for me.

More exciting looks to follow…

Which Was Your Favourite Ralph & Russo Dress On “Britain’s Got Talent” Judge Amanda Holden?

On Friday I did a post on Amanda Holden’s “Britain’s Got Talent” Ralph & Russo dresses which included 4 very stunning looks.

This weekend the judge wore two more stunning custom-made Ralph & Russo gowns.

On Friday night Amanda wore a midnight blue, silk chiffon corseted Ralph & Russo gown which was encrusted with Swarovski crystals and pearls.

I like the gown, but I wasn’t crazy about her hairstyle with this look as it felt a bit dated.

Her finale gown on Saturday night however, is still giving me goosebumps.

Amanda glided onto the stage sporting a shorter sexier hairstyle with fellow judges Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan.

She wore an exquisite ivory silk crepe v-neck fishtail Ralph & Russo gown with a central split.

Swarovski crystals were encrusted into the waist, power shoulders and hip detailing.

I’m torn between the drama of Monday nights gown and the knock-out beauty from Saturday nights show-stopper.

Amanda proves she is the perfect brand ambassador for Ralph & Russo’s sophisticated dresses and totally erases her SATC shocker, but which was your favourite?
