Red Carpet Fashion Awards

BDOTW Womens 18 Feb

Despite an amazing week of stunning gowns, it was a two clothes-horse race for the title of Best Dressed this week.

It was a close call, but you eventually picked Rihanna’s Alaia Grammy dress as your favourite, whereas I picked the runner-up Marion Cotillard.

We may grumble at the French actress always wearing Dior, but she wears it so well.

Many wouldn’t have been able to pull off this fashion-forward look with such ease, plus I love bold colour, which brightened up a cold and rainy evening in London.

When it came to men, our choices again couldn’t be more different. You picked the handsome Eddie Redmayne in Alexander McQueen, whereas I opted for Frank Ocean in Dior Homme.

Aside from the sleek ink-blue colour, I loved that he wore such a laidback piece on a red carpet where most of the men opted for a classic tux. The Grammys is the one place to stand out and do something different so I’m glad he didn’t opt for a suit and tie.

Multiple nominee Rihanna played the ultimate lady in red at the 2013 Grammy Awards, hosted this evening at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

The Barbadian beauty looked unbelievably stunning—and sophisticated—in her candy-apple-coloured, custom dress by Azzedine Alaia that was positively delicious.

The diaphanous A-line design with a long train was a flowing addition to the red carpet. I loved the criss-cross detail in the front that continued at the back.

And because this is the boundaries-pushing Rihanna after all, the look was slightly see-through, as she played her own game of peek-a-boo at the awards show.

This was an incredible outing from Ri Ri, especially with her refined styling that included minimal jewels, pretty ombre curls and a red lippie.

Rihanna In Christopher Kane - Chris Brown's Home

On-again off-again couple Rihanna and Chris Brown were spotted leaving Brown’s home in Los Angeles, California yesterday afternoon, as Chris was due in court over claims that he allegedly lied about finishing his community service.

Rihanna, who is determined to stand by her man, wore a Christopher Kane Resort 2013 blouse with black jeans.

Her punk-luxe floral-print shirt with a painterly print doesn’t quite scream ‘headed to court’, but this rebellious paint-slash look embodies the cutting-edge style we associate with the singer.

Black pumps, dark shades and a black Dolce & Gabbana tote completed her look.

One of the hottest tickets during London’s Fall 2013 Fashion Week is the River Island Fashion Show.

Why? Because Rihanna will be finally unveiling her collaboration with the high-street retailer and co-designer Adam Selman.

In the behind-the-scenes video, Rihanna teases us with sketches and model fittings and she explains her inspiration was the personal style of normal London teenagers and her goal was to design for sassy young women who want to stay one step ahead of the usual high-street trends.

On the River Island collaboration: “I’ve been wanting to design my own fashion line for a very long time. This has been something I’ve wanted to do ever since I started loving fashion.”

On her style: “My style is inspired by my mood, the collection will have a range of moods, different attitudes because I’m assuming my fans will be the same way.”

Following her performance on the UK X Factor finale last week, Rihanna showcased her singing talents once again on another reality singing competition last night; this time it was for the live finale of ‘The Voice’.

On this occasion she donned a Lanvin Spring 2013 jumpsuit.

Her luxe tuxedo jumpsuit, covered entirely with Swarovski embroidery, was styled with the same crystal bracelet, crystal belt, and bronze sandals we saw on the runway. She also wore a version of the large crystal necklace, without the choker aspect.

Rihanna usually likes to go big and bold, so I’m surprised she toned down that part of the look, but I guess wearing a choker when singing live wouldn’t be such a smart move.

Flawless makeup and her cute pixie cropped ‘do, which I much-prefer of all her hairstyles, completed her look.

Style-savvy songstress Rihanna performed her new single, ‘Diamonds’ on the popular German TV show, ‘Wetten, dass…?’ on Saturday evening.

RiRi brought a sense of subtle sex appeal to a modern Balmain Spring 2013 ensemble which featured a tiny white cropped halter and baggy leather pants, to which she added a chunky gold Chanel belt, which was a fabulous mixture of Euro-trash opulence and haute-couture sophistication.

The midriff-baring star’s finishing touches were Manolo Blahnik killer heels.

We love that Rihanna is always true to her unique sense of style – both on-stage and off.

She is one of the few singers able to totally transform a look just by the way she wears it while performing to a captive audience.

Her short hairstyle looks especially chic paired with the softness of the outfit’s top.

After a wild week on her ‘777’ tour, where she mostly wore menswear, Rihanna switched back to opting for a more feminine look for the launch of her latest fragrance, ‘Nude’, held at Macy’s in Westfield Century City in California on Saturday afternoon.

The singer selected an ivory-and-white Nini Nguyen dress.

Her dress features a bustier top with a part-crepe, part-lace skirt worn over hot pants.

This is most definitely a look very few could pull off, so thankfully it was picked up by Rihanna.

A gold vintage Christian Lacroix choker and black Tom Ford python pumps accessorized her look.

I love the soft wavy tresses and neutral makeup. While we all know Rihanna is a bad ass chick, it’s great to see her softer side on this occasion.
