Pixie Lott In Christian Dior – BRIT Awards Nominations

Pixie Lott In Christian Dior - BRIT Awards Nominations

Pixie Lott joined Laura Whitmore on the red carpet for the 2014 BRIT Awards nominations event hosted at ITV Studios on Thursday (January 9) in London.

The singer – whose style took a bit of a dip at the end of last year with some crazy getups – was back to her best wearing a Christian Dior Fall 2013 strapless dress featuring a black-white-and-pink tweed-print bodice and a rise-and-fall black mini skirt, which she styled with Dior pumps.

This is more like the Pixie I know and love; the look is uber cute without giving you a toothache, plus she didn’t over-style the look on this occasion.

Allison Williams In Christian Dior – ‘Girls’ Season Three Premiere

Allison Williams In Christian Dior - 'Girls' Season Three Premiere

Allison Williams joined co-star Lena Dunham on the red carpet for the season three premiere of ‘Girls’ held at Jazz at Lincoln Center on Monday (January 6) in New York City.

The actress wore a dress from one of her go-to designers, Dior, selecting a pale-blue silk-leather-and-satin dress with a bodice decorated with floral appliqués, a pleated skirt and a rise-and-fall hemline.

There is something very Ariel Winter/Lucy Hale about this frock, and what I mean by that is that it feels better suited to a teen Hollywood starlet.

Allison styled her pretty frock with Dior blush pumps, Dior Fine Jewelry ‘Bagatelle’ white-gold-and-diamond earrings and a ‘Bagatelle’ white-gold-and-diamond ring.

A tight bun accented with an ornate jewelled brooch, and a pink lip completed her look.

Most Worn 2013 – Christian Dior’s Hoop Skirt

Most Worn 2013 – Christian Dior's Hoop Skirt

Last year it was a gown which was the most worn look of the year; this time it’s a skirt.

For a while I thought that the red-and-navy Michael Kors Spring 2013 ensemble was going to take this award, but it is the Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2013 hoop skirt featuring a rise-and-fall hemline which takes the prize this year.

Marion Cotillard wore the teal-blue version to the SAG Awards, followed by a trio of celebs wearing the coral version in the space of two weeks. Then Ravshana Kurkova wore a black version to the Moscow Dior show in July before Bollywood beauty Alia Bhatt made this the most-worn look of 2013, bringing the popular coral skirt back to the red carpet at the 2013 Vogue Beauty Awards in Mumbai in August.

Last up was Carice van Houten who gave the black version its final red carpet appearance at the European Film Awards earlier this month.

Is the skirt that major that it deserved seven outings? Who wore it best?

Most Worn Brand 2013 – Dior

Most Worn Brand 2013 – Dior

This past year, the most ubiquitous brand on the backs of red carpet beauties was none other than Christian Dior. Few celebs could deny trotting out the ultra-famous French label, which has long enchanted with its elegance and, now, its edge, too—especially with designer Raf Simons injecting his experimental and slightly surrealist spin on the latest collections.

A style staple during awards season and a fixture at major to-dos—from the Cannes Film Festival to the Met Gala and countless movie premieres—Dior indeed dominated.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt having three ‘it’ girls as Lady Dior and Miss Dior ambassadors, with Marion Cotillard, Natalie Portman and Jennifer Lawrence unsurprisingly showing off the designer on a continual basis.

Throughout the year, Natalie paraded out a wardrobe full of Dior, especially during the ‘Thor: The Dark World’ promo circuit, remedying any fashion fatigue some may have felt towards her partnership with the brand.

French actress Marion also did Dior proud (well, at least during the first part of the year), as she put her personal touch of elegant panache on her designer exits.

And despite much debate, Jennifer still delivered on some positively memorable Dior moments. She nearly exclusively wore the label throughout the year and at ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ premiere tour.

Other Dior darlings include Cate Blanchett, Emmy Rossum, Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Natalia Vodianova, Nicole Kidman and Zhang Ziyi, with even more starlets seated on the front row at the label’s couture and ready-to-wear shows.

Even the guys got in on the action, with handsome fellas including Idris Elba, Liam Hemsworth and Bruce Willis each wearing Dior Homme.

Brand Ambassador of the Year 2013 – Marion Cotillard for Christian Dior

Brand Ambassador of the Year - Marion Cotillard for Christian Dior

French star Marion Cotillard was Christian Dior most lavish representative, with a grand sum of 19 looks to her name over the past 12 months.

The face of Lady Dior, she wears the brand well, gracefully balancing designer Raf Simons’ sophisticated yet still-edgy offerings. Not that she didn’t have competition in the category, with Natalie Portman and Jennifer Lawrence also working the Dior angle—sometimes more successfully than others.

That said, Marion started the year off with a bang, cementing an early spot on the best-dressed list with her risk-taking, citron-yellow couture gown at the 2013 BAFTA Awards that was breathtakingly bold and thereby unforgettable.

More Dior moments at the Met Gala, the Cannes Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival soon followed, with the actress later wrapping up her 2013 designer run at the Marrekech Film Festival.

Rather regrettably for this year’s Dior-Marion match, she wavered as a pristine style steward of the brand, also landing the unfortunate award of Magnifique to Tragique 2013.

Felicity Jones In Christian Dior – ‘The Invisible Woman’ New York Premiere

Felicity Jones In Christian Dior - 'The Invisible Woman' New York Premiere

After a succession of black frocks, Felicity Jones gave us something different for ‘The Invisible Woman’ New York premiere held at the Museum of Modern Art on Monday evening.

Still opting for a minimalist frock, she wore a white satin sleeveless dress with a sheer hemline which was not sheer enough to be revealing.

She totally surprised me with a pair of hot-pink Dior pumps which ensured she was far from invisible on this occasion.

I had to sit and think on the white Dior clutch for a long while, and I’m going back to my first feeling that it doesn’t really work for me as it adds nothing to the look.

Working a shaggy bob, she completed her look with kohl-rimmed eyes and a glossy pink lip.

Does the British beauty win you over here after so many LBDs?

Carice van Houten In Christian Dior – European Film Awards 2013

Carice van Houten In Christian Dior - European Film Awards 2013

Carice van Houten continued her love for all things Dior when joining Noomi Rapace and Diane Kruger on the red carpet at the European Film Awards 2013 in Berlin, Germany on Saturday.

The Dutch actress wore a pretty pink bustier with a black bell-shaped skirt from Dior’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection which we’ve already seen multiple times – mostly in orange.

Styling, as we all know, can make or break a look. The dual-colour pink-and-orange Dior pumps couldn’t be more perfect for this look, but the head scratcher lies at the fingerless leather gloves.

With so much good going on here, I have to wonder what possessed her to wear those gloves.
