Harper’s Bazaar Woman of the Year Awards Red Carpet Round Up

Here are some more looks from Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards which took place at Claridge’s Hotel in London yesterday evening.

Ellie Simmonds: We’ve had the face of and the voice of the 2012 London Olympics; here we have the face of the Paralympics, Ellie Simmonds. The athlete wore a midnight-blue Stella McCartney dress with a V-neckline and black embellishments. She was honoured on the night with Victoria Pendleton and Jessica Ennis, all receiving the ‘British Ambassadors of the Year’ award.

Daisy Lowe: The model opted for pale makeup with smoky eyes and blood-red lips while wearing an embellished Elie Saab gown. Her ¾-length-sleeve gown was styled with a Charlotte Olympia clutch. Daisy often opts for this type of makeup so it wasn’t just for Halloween.

Ruth Wilson: The British actress wore a black silk camisole top with her striking Peter Pilotto Spring 2013 skirt with a flounced hem. Black Kirkwood pumps and an Anton Heunis three crystal square statement necklace accessorized her look.

Yasmin Le Bon: The supermodel wore a Willow Resort 2013 draped top and loose-fit pants with a snakeskin print which she styled with petrol-blue Nicholas Kirkwood peep-toes and a silver clutch.Read More…

Rosamund Pike In Marios Schwab – ‘Shadow Dancer’ London Premiere

Rosamund Pike opted for a two-tone look when she hit the red carpet at the Cineworld Haymarket in London on Monday evening for the premiere of her latest movie ‘Shadow Dancer’.

The British actress selected a teal-and-black velvet dress by London-based designer Marios Schwab.

Although this Resort 2013 dress didn’t take to the runway, the seam detailing, solid black panels and sheer black overlay were featured in the designer’s collection.

As always Rosamund opted for a fresh-faced look with a touch of nude lippie and untouched natural tresses.

A simple silver clutch and black-lace ankle-strap Nicholas Kirkwood heels accessorized her look.

Rosamund Pike In Christopher Kane – The Stone Roses Adidas Secret Gig

It’s not often we see Rosamund Pike sporting such a laidback look, but it was event appropriate for the Stone Roses Adidas secret gig held at Adidas Underground in London on Monday night.

Sporting a simple white tee and black pants, the British actress added an eye-catching Christopher Kane animal print biker jacket to her look.

Opting for ‘just-got-out-of-the-shower’ hair, Rosamund completed the look with black leather booties and a gold bracelet.

“Johnny English Reborn” World Premiere

Rosamund Pike and Gillian Anderson joined Rowan Atkinson for the World Premiere of their new movie, “Johnny English Reborn” at The Entertainment Quarter in Sydney, Australia yesterday.

It was quite literally a tale of two dresses.

Rosamund Pike: The blonde British actress looked like she didn’t get the Premiere memo, because she was more beach-ready than red carpet ready. She wore a white crochet short sleeved Alaia Spring 2011 dress with a red underlay. This red dress matched her Charlotte Olympia Dolores quilted pumps and red lip colour.

Gillian Anderson: The American actress decided on a more glamorous approach, as she wore a beautiful wine-coloured velvet gown with a plunging neckline.

So which summer blockbuster World Premiere red carpet look works better for you?

Rosamund, because she’s summer appropriate and having fun at this comedy Premiere, or Gillian because she dressed the part for a World Premiere?

Rosamund Pike In Alexander McQueen – “The Devil’s Double” London Premiere

Rosamund Pike attended the London Premiere of her new movie, “The Devil’s Double” at the Vue West End.

The British actress opted to wear a British designer like many other stars last night.

Her Alexander McQueen tweed dress from the Fall 2011 collection with two front slits on the skirt was paired with black peep-toes.

Rosamund’s winter white Alexander McQueen dress is highlighted at the waist with a gleaming metal zipper, which can be easily mistaken for a belt in the long shot of this picture.

The second I saw Rosamund in this dress I immediately thought of Maria Sharapova who is also a huge fan of McQueen.

The major difference is that Maria would’ve put more effort into her hair and make-up plus she would’ve picked a more interesting pair of shoes.

All these elements are lacking when it comes to Rosamund, but thankfully the dress speaks for itself.
