Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

Rita Ora In Marchesa - Elle Style Awards 2014

Rita Ora made a show-stopping appearance on the red carpet of the Elle Style Awards 2014 (February 18) held at One Embankment in central London this evening.

Wearing a white floor-length Marchesa Fall 2014 gown with an embroidered body and layered tulle skirt, Rita ensured all eyes were on her at the star-studded event.

While I like the fact she hasn’t opted for the runway inspired romantic styling and instead opted or a much modern, slicked back hair and bold lip pairing, I think the dress looks a little frumpy for the young star.

This is an awards ceremony celebrating the best style makers and designers so I think Rita should have chosen something much more daring and suited to her age. It’s a pretty dress but it would have been much more suited to something like the Oscars. Do you agree?

Felicity Jones In Christopher Kane - Elle Style Awards 2014

Joining stars including Lily Allen and Emma Watson on the red carpet, actress Felicity Jones attended the Elle Style Awards 2014 at London’s One Embankment this evening (February 18).

Wearing the most talked about hue of the season while also championing one of London’s finest designers Felicity looked a picture of retro femininity in a pink strapless Christopher Kane Pre-Fall 2014 dress.

While this could have been styled in a much edgier way, Felicity opted for a 60s inspired beehive and smoky cat eye for a vintage infused look which oozed elegance and grace.

While the accessorising is pretty safe, It’s an undeniably pretty look, what do you think?

Lily Allen In Roland Mouret - Elle Style Awards 2014

Lily Allen joined a host of stars at the Elle Style Awards 2014 held at One Embankment in central London this evening (February 18).

Following from her controversially colourful turn at the 2014 BAFTAs earlier in the week, Lily opted for a drastically different look in a chic black Roland Mouret Resort 2014 gown.

The classic floor-length gown with angular neckline could have been a somewhat average choice for Lily, but the singer certainly ensured she put her own edgy spin on it.

With a dramatic short fringe and long pointed pewter nails, Lily added a tonal blue Chanel clutch to lift this dress from simple to fantastic.

It just goes to show what a different styling and accessories can make, doesn’t it?
