Roberto Cavalli Fall 2014 Front Row

Roberto Cavalli Fall 2014 Front Row

Normally one to draw a big A-list crowd, it was surprising to see so many British stars on the front row at The Roberto Cavalli Fall 2104 show.

Cheryl Cole: Continuing her style re-invention, Cheryl Cole attended the show in a statement-making exotic animal-print mac. With her hair slicked back, a heavy smoky eye and polished accessories it was a dramatic look but I actually quite like it. Not only perfect for the Milan culture, it really suits Cheryl and is great to see her try a more grown-up look.

Ellie Goulding: If there’s one hue to wear this season, it is blue. So it was great to see Ellie bring a dazzling hit of the on-trend shade to the front row in a floor-length Roberto Cavalli gown. Combined with the 70s-style loose flowing cut, it was a look that really suited the British singer. Following from Ellie’s questionable Vivienne Westwood dress at the 2014 Brit Awards, this is a look which really suits Ellie’s bohemian aesthetic and one I think she should stick to.

Samantha Barks: British actress Samantha Barks channelled the true Cavalli woman in a black corseted top with high-shine gold waist belt and animal print pencil skirt. Sexy and empowering, I think Samantha’s shoes are the perfect finishing touch for this simple yet effective red carpet look.

Ellie Goulding In Vivienne Westwood – Brit Awards 2014

Ellie Goulding In Vivienne Westwood - Brit Awards 2014

Ellie Goulding joined Jessie J on the red carpet at the O2 Arena in London this evening (February 19) for the Brit Awards 2014.

While the singer was much improved from her showing at the Elle Style Awards, I have to say I’m not quite buying this frothy Vivienne Westwood look on Ellie.

Ellie strikes me as a girl with a bit of an edge, so seeing her in this pretty pink taffeta/tulle floral embroidered frou frou, princess la-la gown is rather odd to me.

Katy Perry is perhaps the only one who can go from edgy to princess-like without skipping a beat.

On the plus side I’m loving the hair and makeup.

Ellie Goulding In Matthew Williamson – Elle Style Awards 2014

Ellie Goulding In Matthew Williamson - Elle Style Awards 2014

Ellie Goulding joined a host of stars on the red carpet of the Elle Style Awards 2014 held at One Embankment in central London this evening (February 18).

Wearing a satin and star lace sheer panelled jumpsuit from Matthew Williamson’s Fall 2014 collection, Ellie brought a heavy dose of rock’n’roll edge to the occasion.

While the runway version was much given a much more polished finish, I must admit I’m pleasantly surprised by this look.

I think a jumpsuit is a great eveningwear option for Ellie, and this simple yet glamorous version ensures she retains her androgynous spirit.

Ellie’s hair was typically undone but I actually think this adds a cool-girl edginess to the jumpsuit. My only change would be to add a more dramatic nail colour and some high shine accessories such as a bold cuff and mirrored clutch.

Ellie Goulding In Rebecca Minkoff – Late Show With David Letterman

Ellie Goulding In Rebecca Minkoff - Late Show With David LettermanEllie Goulding was quite the snow bunny, as she confronted New York City’s wintry mix on her way to an appearance on the ‘Late Show With David Letterman.’

The songstress hardly looked phased at all by the cold, as she skipped a coat in favour of an oversized, sheer Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2014 black mesh top and black leggings.

Her edgy, bra-baring top, which was arguably far more flattering via the runway’s styling, may have been rather reminiscent of a baggy, sports jersey here. She styled the look with black patent holographic boots and a black handbag, topping it all off with a fun black hat.

Hopefully, she didn’t have too far to walk, as I’m shivering just looking at this see-through shirt.

Ellie Goulding In Christopher Kane – BRIT Awards Nominations

Ellie Goulding In Christopher Kane - BRIT Awards Nominations

Ellie Goulding joined Pixie Lott and Laura Whitmore at the 2014 BRIT Awards nominations event hosted at ITV Studios on Thursday (January 9) in London.

The singer donned a Christopher Kane Resort 2014 black organza sheer frock with an abstract line cut-out detail throughout.

Ellie styled the look with Emporio Armani shoes, trademark relaxed waves and glossy lips.

While I love the dress, there is, as always, something missing. I never feel a sense of excitement with Ellie.
