Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Elle Style Awards

Here are the rest of the looks from the 2013 Elle Style Awards.

Rosamund Pike: The British actress is known for her love of pretty, ultra-feminine dresses, but on this occasion she wore a black Tom Ford suit. Her edgier look was styled with black Nicholas Kirkwood pumps and a Smythson envelope clutch.

Peaches Geldof: The socialite showed off her baby bump wearing a pretty lace frock, which she styled with retro waves, a gorgeous red lip colour and a blue clutch.

Juno Temple: The actress also opted for a black suit, but her McQ Alexander McQueen ensemble had a military-type feel to it. This is probably to do with the shiny gold buttons on her double-breasted peplum jacket.

Last night InStyle UK hosted a party to celebrate the iconic glamour of Dolce & Gabbana.

Some of the UK finest celebs turned out to toast the Italian fashion house.

Actress Bonnie Wright paid homage to the designers by wearing one of their classic bustier dresses, which we’ve seen a thousand times yet it never goes out of style.

Singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor was one of the few who opted to wear some colour. She wore a Dolce & Gabbana crushed satin purple sleeveless dress.

It looks like she didn’t only get a dress from the Lanvin for H&M collection, she also got one of their necklaces too. (jealous)

Former Sugababes singer Keisha Buchanan paired a Corre Nelson ensemble with a Fiona Packston necklace and Finsk shoes.

These have to be the most interesting black pumps I’ve seen in a while.

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld who’s usually loves to wear fitted mini dresses opted for a black silk vintage dress which she teamed with a Coco de Mer belt and an Alexander McQueen clutch.

There was a lot of black at this event, but it wouldn’t quite be a Dolce & Gabbana party without a lot of stars the designers favourite colour.

There has been much speculation this weekend as to whether Kelly Rowland or Mel B will be replacing Dannii Mingoue as the next X Factor judge.

Kelly let her amazing Basil Soda Fall 2009 Couture gown do all the talking and it was saying “WOW”.

I don’t think I’ve seen her look this amazing since her Destiny’s Child days.

The colour is divine on her plus the cut flatters her figure and gives her curves.

First contender for BDOTW.

Model Natalie Suliman also wore a gown from the Basil Soda Fall 2009 Couture collection.

Her gorgeous green chiffon gown was dripping with embellish details which cascaded down her gown.

Anouck Lepere opted for a white Mark Fast scoop neck knit dress.

The drop-waist dress had heavy long fringing to give it a flapper feel which I love, but I just didn’t love the black patent pumps.

White dresses and black shoes have always been a no-no in my book.

Elizabeth Hurley wore a white fur gilet, which despite it’s size feels like it’s covering the whole of her gown.

Such a shame because this is a gorgeous colour on Liz.

I do like the print on Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s metallic dress, but the style of the dress feel so mumsy.

Frankie Sandford, Mollie King, Una Healy, Rochelle Wiseman and Vanessa White of the Saturdays look stunning in their mix of spring ready pastel floor length gowns, mini dresses and LBDs.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor charmed in her Elie Saab Fall 2009 black embellished dress by adding a true signature Lulu Guinness hot red lips clutch.

I love the racy red strappy heels.  Some would have stuck to safe black.

On any other week she may have been up for BDOTW.

What a way to show off your post-baby body.

Kimora Lee Simmons used to make some questionable choices on the red carpet, but since dating Djimon Hounsou she appears to have left her ghetto fabulousness behind, and is giving us pure Fabulosity – to borrow her term.

She looks stunning in a Jenny Packham shimmering gold plunging gown which show off her twins, or as Teresa Giudice from “The Housewives of New Jersey” would call them “boobies”.

I think it must be ‘Cheryl Cole Appreciation Day’ today, because firstly Beyonce Knowles wore a similar David Koma dress to the X Factor judge.

Now Kimora is wearing the same Jenny Packham Fall 2010 Bridal jeweled hair accessory which Cheryl wore on week 3 of the X Factor with her Atelier Versace white gown.

Who would have thought little Cheryl Cole was just a trend-setter.

This satin Dolce & Gabbana mermaid gown keeps popping up on the red carpet like the Dolce & Gabbana tulle gowns.

Eva Herzigova opted to wear her green version off-the-shoulder.

Unfortunately the gown sits too low for my liking.

Rihanna, Rosario Dawson and Caterina Murino have all worn this same gown.

Elizabeth Hurley is usually wears knee-length dresses or thigh-high split gowns, so this fruity tangerine above-the-knee dress is a refreshing change.

She pairs her dress with Jimmy Choo gold heels and a matching clutch.

The Q Awards

Pixie Lott looked adorable wearing a Gucci Fall 2009 black and silver dress, with black feathered detail on the shoulders.

She opted out of the runway belt, which actually works much better for her.

Surprisingly I don’t mind the tights here.

It’s been a very long while since we last saw Corinne Bailey Rae on the red carpet – February 2008 to be precise.

She’s bounced back from her grief to return to the red carpet looking sensational wearing a black and forest green striped Moschino Cheap & Chic Fall 2009 dress with black ankle strapped heels.

I love the dress, but I’m so jealous of her hair.

I wish mine would blow-out like that.

I’m not a Lily Allen fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I do love the new shag.

I’m going to the hair salon later today, so I may take this picture along for inspirational.

I also like Lily’s simple look in which she wore a long-sleeved ivory beaded dress with black leggings.

She completed her look with YSL sculpted platform pumps.

Sophie Ellis Bextor and her husband Richard Jones walked the red carpet together, as they often do.

Sophie wore a black Dolce & Gabbana velvet and satin dress with voluminous shoulders which we’ve seen on the red carpet before.

She completed her look with Christian Louboutin Eugenie heels and a snake-print clutch.

As always Sophie oozes class and sophistication.

I can deal with Fearne Cotton’s Olivia Rubin embroidered tulip peplum dress, but her leopard print ankle boots are just hideous.

Amy Winehouse attended with her god-daughter Dionne Bromfield.

Amy seemed to be in good spirits showing her new…pink Preen dress.

My…hasn’t she grown since being out of the spotlight.

Lulu Guinness wasn’t about to be upstage by any celebrities last night. She stood out at this event celebrating her labels 20 year anniversary, wearing a vibrant purple Giles Deacon dress, with a tulle trim on the hem of skirt, and two eyes on the bodice.

The designer posed with her famous her red lips clutch to make a cute face, which was a very nice touch.

Katy Perry, who has carried a Lulu Guinness clutch to many red carpet events, was surprisingly clutchless at this event.

Lulu has a sun blush snakeskin clutch which would have worked well with her orange and grey ensemble.

Victoria Hesketh aka Little Boots, opted for a McQ Alexander McQueen feather print shift dress, which she wore with Alexander McQueen heels.

Model Jade Parfitt opted for a black Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 dress, which has previously been worn by Kate Hudson.

Between the boots and the tights, I really dislike this look.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor and her partner colour co-ordinated his tie, with her skirt, to show what a fashion conscious couple they really are.

Sophie carried a Lulu Guinness black snakeskin lips clutch.
