Red Carpet Fashion Awards

2013BAFTA_PalomaFaith

Time and again, British singer-songwriter Paloma Faith has proven she’s none too shy to flaunt her wild-child flair on the red carpet. The 2013 BAFTA Awards hosted at the Royal Opera House in London, England were no exception.

Her Nicholas Oakwell design from the Spring 2012 Couture collection featured a flurry of sparkling embellishment smattered onto the silvery grey gown. The keyhole detail showed just enough skin to stay sophisticated.

But even all that glitzy dazzle couldn’t detract from the outrageous orange sculpture that was her hair.

The ‘Picking up the Pieces’ songstress paraded out the quirk factor with her elaborate ‘do; a twisted and turning riff on a beehive, accented with vintage-looking De Beers diamond hair jewelry.

An exaggerated brow and sleepy cat eye, along with a bright red lip, completed the beauty explosion.

Did you find Paloma’s BAFTAs entrance to be grand or just garish?

VH1 Divas 2012

There were many more stars attending the ‘VH1 Divas’ 2012 event held at the Shrine Auditorium yesterday evening in California.

Kelly Rowland: Usually I’m a big fan of Kelly Rowland’s style, but I was left disappointed by this emerald-green A. F. Vandevorst Fall 2012 wrap gown. There is not much going on with it; it’s like she just wrapped fabric around herself before stepping out. Some form of styling would’ve lifted the look, but that was lacking all round. Even her fringed Nicholas Kirkwood sandals couldn’t save this look.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum: I don’t know about you, but when I saw Jenna in this baby-blue empire-waist strapless Temperley gown with a beaded bodice, the first word to come to my head was ‘pregnant’. This look feels too twee for a ‘Divas’ event. (Update: So I was right. Jenna is pregnant with her first child. Congrats to the happy couple)

Stacy Keibler: The actress channelled her inner diva wearing an all-black Monique Lhuillier Fall 2012 suit, which featured a revealing open jacket, a leather waistband and leather panels on the pants. Factor in Jimmy Choo pointy pumps, a Giuseppe Zanotti clutch and blown-out locks and you have one hot look. Read more…

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.

Paloma Faith hit the red carpet in London tonight for the ‘Dark Shadows’ European premiere.

Sporting a super curly bi-colour ‘do, the British singer and Dolce & Gabbana devotee wore a look from the Italian designers Spring 2012 collection.

Her sleeveless sheer look with an open collar and crystal embellished skirt was teamed with classic Dolce & Gabbana accessories.

They included a black woven glossed-raffia tote and bowtie pasta and gold-tone chain necklace.

The last time this necklace was worn on the red carpet by Pixie Lott it looked comical, but Paloma has enough quirk and personality to pull it off.

Here we have two Brit stars with added spice from Italy.

Pixie Geldof was the first to wear this red, green and white chilli-print Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 fitted dress whilst attending the 2012 Elle Style Awards in London back in February.

She channelled her inner Marilyn Monroe with voluminous waves and red hot lips.

Black peep-toes completed her look.

Paloma Faith was spotted outside the BBC1 studios last month wearing the same dress.

The crooner added a matching headscarf, red platform Mary Janes, a bright red hat bag and a black and gold embroidered cardigan.

Even though many of you hated the cardigan with this Dolce & Gabbana dress, I would take Paloma’s cardigan over Pixie’s black peep-toes.

Paloma for putting her signature twist on this red hot dress.

You can buy Pixie and Paloma’s Dolce & Gabbana dress from Matches Fashion.
