Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Katherine Jenkins In Preen - Investitures Ceremony at Buckingham Palace

Katherine Jenkins and her partner Andrew Levitas arrived at Buckingham Palace in central London on Friday (March 14) for an Investiture Ceremony, where she received an OBE from Prince Charles.

The Welsh soprano was awarded the honour for her services to music and charity work.

Looking as lovely as ever, she wore a Preen Spring 2014 dress cut from white stretch-crepe featuring a kaleidoscope of colour and print.

Her colourful perfect-for-a-sunny-day-at-the-palace dress, which cinches her in at the waist enhancing her silhouette, was only marginally upstaged by a stunning magenta fascinator.

You may remember that Melonie Diaz wore this same dress to the Film Independent Spirit Awards earlier this month.

I love this so much that it’s currently on my favourites list.

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.

Katherine Jenkins In Roksanda Ilincic Pre-Fall 2013 - Royal Ascot

Katherine Jenkins made a brilliantly bold entrance today at the Royal Ascot at Ascot Racecourse in England.

The singer was a vision in a vibrantly hued, colour-blocked dress from Roksanda Ilincic’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection. The hot orange and pink shades were mirrored in the impressively artistic Philip Treacy fascinator, which topped off this frock with a grand flourish.

While the rationale behind her nude Anya Hindmarch ‘Seymour’ clutch was probably to avoid distracting from her strong look, the opposite effect seemed to happen, as I found myself focusing on the odd-colour-out.

With her vivid Dayglo hues, Katherine smartly wore a daintier sandal and kept her makeup rather neutral, while slicking her hair into a simple updo.

You may recall that Naomie Harris wore this dress earlier this year, styled to much different effect.

Brits 2013

Many more PYTs were out on the red carpet at the 2013 Brit Awards, held at the O2 Arena in London yesterday evening.

Laura Mvula: The singer wore a leather coat dress by London-based Korean-born designer, Heohwan Simulation. Music’s lady of the moment styled her zipper-accented perforated look with white Jimmy Choo ‘Vita’ peep-toes and a perspex floral clutch. Her makeup is flawless. I wish my skin glowed like that.

Katherine Jenkins: The Welsh singer wore a Stella McCartney kaleidoscopic dress from the designer’s Evening 2012 collection, which the designer herself has worn in a different colour. Her Charlotte Olympia pumps match her dress, with a pink lip colour providing an interesting contrast. I like that she’s continuing to discover different silhouettes.

Aluna Francis: The singer/songwriter opted for a metallic-grey Theyskens’ Theory Fall 2012 dress with pearl-embroidered details which give it that beautiful shimmer. I adore the delicate sheer skirt; the fine details are amazing. Christian Louboutin ‘Corpus’ sandals and a ‘Mina Strass’ clutch couldn’t be more perfect for this.

Katherine Jenkins In Christian Dior - IMG Models ‘Be Conscious It’s Happening’ Party

Katherine Jenkins attended the IMG Models ‘Be Conscious It’s Happening’ party held at The Network Building in London yesterday evening.

The Welsh singer wore a Christian Dior Spring 2013 dress.

Those familiar with Katherine’s style will know that she usually goes for a much tighter, fitted silhouette, preferring signature dresses by Victoria Beckham and Roland Mouret.

On this occasion, she wore a double-layered sheer tulle dress with a glitter pattern, which she styled with simple black peep-toes.

I find this look very refreshing. Katherine has been long overdue a style do-over, so I hope this look is the first of many which will see her experiment a little bit more with fashion.
