Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Jessie J In Tom Ford - Elle Style Awards 2014

Making a head-turning appearance, Jessie J attended the 2014 Elle Style Awards at London’s One Embankment (Februaury 18).

Wearing a figure-hugging Tom Ford Spring 2014 fuchsia mini dress with swirling cut-out details and dramatic thigh-high lace-up boots, Jessie made sure all eyes were on her. But for the right reasons? Sadly for Jessie, I think not.

The dress on its own is actually quite stunning and cut with great skill, but the boots are just too dramatic and completely jar with the pretty qualities of the dress.

While I like the velvet clutch, it would be much more suited to a gown rather than sexy body-con number.

To finish, Jessie wore a long black wig and minimal make-up but they did little to save this look.

Suki Waterhouse In Burberry Prorsum - Elle Style Awards 2014

Suki Watercourse rounded off a whirlwind week of big catwalk appearances and parties with boyfriend Bradley Cooper at the Elle Style Awards 2014 at London’s One Embankment this evening (February 18).

This perhaps help to explain why this isn’t one of Suki’s most impressive red carpet looks.

Having wowed in Ralph & Russo earlier in the week, Suki opted for a Burberry Prorsum burgundy blazer over a black floor-length gown.

In fact, Suki has worn this blazer once before, plus Cara Delevingne wore the same blazer this weekend.

While this is an elegant look and I think her hair and make-up are perfectly polished, this just falls a little flat and to me seems to lack effort. But what do you think?

Olga Kurylenko In Isabel Marant - Elle Style Awards 2014

After her dazzling turn at the 2014 BAFTAs Olga Kurylenko made a much edgier appearance on the red carpet of the Elle Style Awards, held at London’s One Embankment this evening (February 18).

Wearing a ruffled embellished Isabel Marant Spring 2014 dress, Olga made the unusual choice to opt for a 90s inspired high ponytail with shoulder-grazing chunky plait.

While the cut of the dress is beautiful and perfect for Olga’s frame, the bohemian inspired dress contrasts too greatly with the hair and her poor choice of nude Nicholas Kirkwood courts. Altogether I think this was a disappointing look from Olga who so often wows us with her elegance.

I think all of the elements of this look could work, but altogether they’re just not gelling What do you think?

Ellie Goulding In Matthew Williamson - Elle Style Awards 2014

Ellie Goulding joined a host of stars on the red carpet of the Elle Style Awards 2014 held at One Embankment in central London this evening (February 18).

Wearing a satin and star lace sheer panelled jumpsuit from Matthew Williamson’s Fall 2014 collection, Ellie brought a heavy dose of rock’n’roll edge to the occasion.

While the runway version was much given a much more polished finish, I must admit I’m pleasantly surprised by this look.

I think a jumpsuit is a great eveningwear option for Ellie, and this simple yet glamorous version ensures she retains her androgynous spirit.

Ellie’s hair was typically undone but I actually think this adds a cool-girl edginess to the jumpsuit. My only change would be to add a more dramatic nail colour and some high shine accessories such as a bold cuff and mirrored clutch.

Erin O'Connor In Louis Vuitton - Elle Style Awards 2014

Since announcing her pregnancy at the InStyle Best of British pre-BAFTA party earlier in the month, it was great to see Erin O’Connor again and this time on the red carpet of the Elle Style Awards 2014 at London’s One Embankment this evening (February 18).

It was inevitable that Louis Vuitton’s hit Fall 2014 collection would make appearances during the awards season so I’m glad that we’ve been able to see such an iconic model as Erin wear one of the dresses.

While you may remember that Michelle Williams wore the runway version sans the shoulder detailing back in December, Erin sported a black and navy mid-length dress with bead embellished collar and tassel-detailed hems, looking the picture of elegance.

While the shoes aren’t my favourite, they do help add a 1920’s flapper-esque vibe to the outfit, and I absolutely adore the feather headband.

In summary, this is perfectly chic and understated.
