Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Florence Welch wore her third Alexander McQueen look of the night at the Universal Brits Awards after-party in London last night.

On this occasion she donned a Mother of pearl print high neck ruffle dress with a barnacle lace underskirt which is the commercial version of the dress which hit the runway back in October.

On this occasion she did opt for the ruffle Brancusi sandals, plus she added a matching pearl Alexander McQueen skull box clutch.

After long internal debate I have decided that the performance look was my favourite, but I do prefer this hairstyle.

Like many of you, I’m not a fan of her favoured centre parted style.

Following her red carpet appearance at the 2012 Brit Awards in Alexander McQueen, Florence Welch also performed her hit single ‘No Light, No Light’, wearing a different McQueen gown.

Whilst her gown isn’t a runway piece, you can see it was clearly inspired by Look 31 as it has the same gold embroidered detail on the bodice.

The significant difference is the beaded chiffon sheer skirt and the sleeves, which makes for a more wearable performance look.

Florence is fast becoming the perfect brand ambassador for Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen.

It’s a beautiful working relationship, and I’m keen to see how this develops in the future.

I’m unable to pick a favourite of the two gowns, as both have exquisite details and Florence wears them equally well.

Which do you prefer?

The Awards ceremonies just keep on rolling.

Tonight in London, the 2012 Brit Awards are being held at the O2 Arena.

First to hit the red carpet was Florence Welch who will be performing with her band, Florence and the Machine, at the lavish ceremony.

The singer opted to wear her second look from the Alexander McQueen Spring 2012 collection.

Her ethearal nude gown with a rise-and-fall skirt and Couture-like detailing has been modified to include sleeves – wisely considering is mid February. Sleeves were also added to her previous McQueen Spring 2012 look.

Whilst the singer didn’t opt for the gold harness detail, she did wear the Alexander McQueen wedges sans frou frou.

I know many of you are o.v.e.r. seeing Florence stick to this colour palette, so what do you think of her in McQueen on this occasion?

The Brit Awards will be shown on ITV1 at 8pm this evening.

Florence Welch also attended the 2012 Style Awards held in London this evening.

The singer wore a fitted Erdem Spring 2012 dress with three-quarter-length sleeves and a shirt-like collar in a muted blue floral print.

The dress was paired with matching ankle-strap heels by Nicholas Kirkwood.

This fitted look for the singer is a refreshing change as we’re used to seeing her mostly in flowing garments.

The granny-chic print is very Florence and very appropriate for the UK event.

Shiny red locks and collections of rings complete the look.

Granny-chic or Grannish?

Florence Welch was spotted leaving BBC Radio 1 last week.

The singer, who we are used to seeing wearing floaty chiffon gowns on stage, opted for a very different look on this occasion.

She wore a Kenzo Fall 2011 suit.

Whilst the paisley suit looks like the handy work of Maria for ‘The Von Trapp Children’, I have to say Florence kinda makes it work for her.

She teamed the look with Ralph Lauren purple suede loafers, a beaded necklace and a tan Jason Wu ‘Jourdan’ bag.

What do you think about this look?

She makes it work, or did she raid Hugh Hefner closet?

Florence Welch was a busy girl over the holidays. Not only did she open the Harrods sale, she also performed on ‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve’ hosted by Ryan Seacrest.

The singer belted out her hit single ‘Shake It Out’ wearing a Gucci Spring 2012 dress.

Her black art-deco dress with gold details including a fringed skirt was modified from the runway version we have seen on Evan Rachel Wood, as Florence’s dress has ¾-length sleeves with gold draped chain details.

Black-and-gold Gucci heels from the same collection and red lippie completed her look.

If this is feeling a tad déjà vu, that’s because Florence wore a dress similar in style on ‘Jools Holland’ last year.
