Bradley Cooper In Vivienne Westwood Man – 2013 Elle Style Awards

Bradley Cooper In Vivienne Westwood Man - 2013 Elle Style Awards

At the 2013 Elle Style Awards, held in The Savoy Hotel in London on Monday evening, Bradley Cooper received the ‘Best Actor’ Award.

The ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ star wore a Vivienne Westwood blue, notch lapel suit.

He paired his suit with a grey shirt with a forward point collar and a sliver, plaid tie. His award even acted as a good accessory.

The jacket fits nicely, but the pants don’t seem to fit quite right.

They’re just an inch long and could be slimmed down just a bit.

Having said that, it’s always difficult to not like anything Bradley wears, because he always seems to look great.

Just two days ago Bradley was seen wearing a Vivienne Westwood Man Fall 2013 coat.

Zawe Ashton In Julien Macdonald – 2013 Elle Style Awards

Zawe Ashton In Julien Macdonald - 2013 Elle Style AwardsAfter her fierce foray onto the red carpet of Sunday’s 2013 BAFTA Awards, Zawe Ashton maintained her sartorial shock factor at the 2013 Elle Style Awards the following evening.

The British actress was a silver bullet at London’s Savoy Hotel, as she donned her second Julien Macdonald look in as many days.

Compacted with rows and rows of silver, mirror-like studs, this geometric, plunge gown had quite the reflective properties—and some sort of glam sci-fi vibe that I’m still trying to figure out.

She paired the look with jewellery from H. Stern and Annoushka, a silver Jimmy Choo ‘Ciggy’clutch and Christian Louboutin heels.

With such a strong fashion statement, I would have liked her beauty to be softer. Her hair was just too severe and the makeup far too much.

Equal parts provocative and rebel-chic, Zawe had no problem grabbing stares from the stylish Elle guest list.

Did you think this look was out-of-this-world or just way too over-the-top?

Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton – 2013 Elle Style Awards

Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton - 2013 Elle Style AwardsCheck mate! Alicia Vikander literally didn’t venture outside the box at Monday evening’s 2013 Elle Style Awards at the Savoy Hotel in London.

The Swedish actress wasn’t about to be left out of the checquerboard game that was Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2013 runway.

She was hip to be square, showing off her legs (and a lot more, too) in her abbreviated frock from the incredibly popular collection. It wasn’t quite as see-through as the dress on the model, thanks to some strategically placed underlining.

The geometry continued with her boxy, Smythson ‘Floating Envelope’ clutch, and I loved that she borrowed inspiration from the yellow runway with her pointy Christian Louboutin ‘Batignolles’ pumps.

Radiant makeup and pretty curls completed this look from one of our Ones to Watch in 2013.

We’ve seen the checquered trend played out so many times before on the red carpet, so now I say what’s another time.

Did this Editor’s Choice award winner win your vote with her sheer love of LV?

Andrea Riseborough In Matthew Williamson – 2013 Elle Style Awards

Andrea Riseborough In Matthew Williamson - 2013 Elle Style Awards

Andrea Riseborough hit the red carpet in a super textural design at the 2013 Elle Style Awards at London’s Savoy Hotel.

The ‘Disconnect’ actress looked effortlessly stunning in a silvery grey design from Matthew Williamson Pre-Fall 2013.

A casual v-neck cut and half-sleeve style was amped up thanks to a beautiful lace design and a soft and flowy feather hemline. Andrea definitely brought the glamour to the red carpet with this design.

The actress styled her cocktail-style dress with Christian Louboutin ‘Dufoura’ open-toe booties and a straightforward beauty style with her hair simply styled in a down look, a smoky eye and a pink lip.

I love the style on her, but would have loved a more delicate sandal and sleek low bun more. Do you agree?

Kate Hudson In Stella McCartney – 2013 Elle Style Awards

Kate Hudson in Stella mccartney - elle style awardsKate Hudson certainly put the red in red carpet when she posed for photographers at the 2013 Elle Style Awards, held at London’s Savoy Hotel on Monday evening.

The actress has been longtime friends with Stella McCartney, so it’s no surprise she had her designer pal dress her for the fashionable night.

What was more surprising was the intensity of this strapless dress, what with its sculpted, backless bodice and illusion lace panels that followed the length of the entire gown.

To go with this va-va-voom moment, Kate swept her hair back into an effortless updo, which nearly seemed a bit casual for this look. She did avoid the temptation of a too-sparkly necklace, only putting on drop earrings and carrying a black Stella clutch.

Stella won the event’s best International Designer award. And, you guessed it: The prize was presented by none other than our lady in red, Kate.

Stella McCartnety In Stella McCartney - 2013 Elle Style Awards

Fashion designer Stella McCartney attended the Elle Style Awards at the Savoy Hotel in London on Monday.

The British designer was dressed in none other than her own designs from Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2013.

She dressed in the same black and white trend as fellow attendee Chloe Moretz, who was also wearing a look by the designer.

Stella opted for crisp black trousers and a white blouse under a dramatic, high-neck black coat with an oversized floral embroidery.

Keeping to her usual beauty style, the designer completed her look with straight hair, a center part, a slight smokey eye, and a light pink lip colour.

Naomie Harris In Roksanda Ilincic – 2013 Elle Style Awards

Naomie Harris In Roksanda Ilincic - 2013 Elle Style AwardsBond girl Naomie Harris hit a bright note on the red carpet at the 2013 Elle Style Awards, hosted at the Savoy Hotel in London on Monday night.

Exchanging her power gowns seen on the ‘Skyfall’ promo tour last fall, the British actress selected a more conservative Roksanda Ilincic above-the-ankle dress from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

Although the generously skirted, swishy look lacked a certain fashion flamboyance, the minimalist approach worked beautifully.

The delightful melon hue was colour-blocked with a flash of neon pink at the back, which injected some fun into the strict lines of this prim and proper design.

Naomie made the dress her own by cinching the waist with a skinny black belt and by swapping those heavy lookbook boots for an ultra-cool pair of black pumps, sculpted with metallic gold cut-outs, by Nicholas Kirkwood. A small Smythson clutch finished the look.

That mortarboard-like cap also had no chance atop her long, glossy locks.

For Naomie, it was a case of fashion kismet. Roksanda Ilincic won the inaugural award for Best Red Carpet Designer at the Elle event.
