Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Tao Okamoto In Chanel – Elle Style Awards 2014

Never one to disappoint, Tao Okamoto made an elegant appearance on the red carpet of the 2014 Elle Style Awards held at One Embankment in central London (February 18).

Wearing a black coated boucle dress from Chanel’s Resort 2014 collection, Tao brought feminine charm with a hint of modern sophistication to the occasion.

Carrying a Perspex Chanel ‘Lego’ bag and wearing the same pearl earring we saw Lily Allen sport at Chanel’s pre-BAFTA party earlier in the week, Tao’s look is the perfect combination of classic femininity and contemporary cool.

Tao’s flawless complexion was enhanced by an on-trend burgundy lip. The only thing I would change here are the shoes as I really think a sexier pointed pump would have been better than a round-toe platform. Do you agree?

Alicia Vikander In Chanel - 2014 BAFTAsAlicia Vikander attended the 2014 BAFTAs today (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The Swedish starlet seized the slightly western-influenced spirit of the Chanel Pre-Fall 2014 collection with this dress, featuring a faded red-white-and-blue embellished sheer bodice and a tiered fringe white skirt.

Despite the flurry of fringe, this statement look did translate differently on Alicia than on the Texas runway of the Chanel show.

Daintier and more delicate, the frock was completed by blue strappy Jimmy Choo ‘Xenia’ sandals, along with a bright pink lip and loose, centre-parted waves.

Sai Bennett In Chanel - 2014 BAFTAsSai Bennett attended the 2014 BAFTAs, hosted Sunday (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The rising starlet stepped out in a sprightly white gown from the Chanel Resort 2014 collection, studded with pearls on the mock peplum waist. You could nearly imagine Coco Chanel herself wearing this languid, ’30s-inspired dress, with its near-boyish charm and straight-laced silhouette.

Shown on the runway dripping in pearls on the runway, Sai simplified the styling by removing the strands and instead wearing a statement, giant pearl earring set from Chanel Fine Jewelry.

Long, crimped waves, swept to the side, along with an enticing fuchsia lip, finished off the look with vintage-modern flair.

Naomie Harris In Chanel - Charles Finch & Chanel Pre BAFTA Party

One of the stand-out looks of last night goes to Naomie Harris as she attended the Charles Finch and Chanel pre-BAFTA party at Annabel’s in London’s Mayfair (February 15).

Only one lucky lady would have been able to wear this instantly recognisable Chanel Spring 2014 print dress to the event and Naomie was the chosen one.

The asymmetric cut and various pleats, folds and layers create an effortless feminine dress which Naomie wears well, but I must admit I don’t love. I really feel the dress is wearing Naomie rather than the other way around.

Such a vibrant print deserves a complementary bold accessory which is why her pearl bracelet is so great but it’s shame to see Naomie opt for a pair of simple black sandals. A colourful yellow sandal would have been so much more vibrant, don’t you think?

Lupita Nyong'o In Chanel Couture - Charles Finch & Chanel Pre BAFTA Party

Wowing on the red carpet one again, Lupita Nyong’o shone bright while attending the Charles Finch and Chanel pre-BAFTA party on Saturday night (February 15) at Annabel’s in London’s Mayfair.

Wearing a rather fabulous candy pink tweed Chanel dress from the Fall 2102 collection with a matching cropped jacket, Lupita basically stole the show.

The ’12 Years a Slave’ actress has been on the promotional tour for months and still looks radiant. She is a woman who can wear colour with ease so it’s great to see her continue in her stride.

What I love most about this look is how Lupita has taken such a classic Chanel look and made it her thoroughly her own.

The high shine silver Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps add a fresh and sexy spin while the white and pink quilted Chanel bag combines ladylike with modernity.

It’s also really great to see Lupuita try out new lengths and silhouettes, but what do you think?

Olga Kurylenko In Chanel - Charles Finch & Chanel Pre BAFTA Party

Ukrainian-born actress Olga Kurylenko attended the Charles Finch and Chanel pre-BAFTA party at Annabel’s, London, yesterday evening (February 15).

Shying away from the ed carpet show-stoppers we have seen Olga wear earlier in the year, the star opted for a paired-back and very minimalistic little black Chanel dress which highlighted her enviably slender frame.

Demure and classic this look certainly is but I can’t help but feel underwhelmed by it.

The dress is timeless but there are so many other amazing Chanel archive pieces Olga could have worn.

The black pointed pumps and statement drop earring were simple and stylish but a bold cuff and much stronger shoe would have elevated this much more effectively. I also would have liked to see her fuss-free hair given a bit of extra gloss.
