Paloma Faith In Nicholas Oakwell Couture – Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Paloma Faith In Nicholas Oakwell Couture - Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Paloma Faith attended the Glamour Women of the Year Awards held at Berkeley Square Gardens on Tuesday (June 3) in London, England, where she picked up the UK Solo Artist award.

As you know, I have a huge soft spot for all things Paloma Faith.

Never one to fail to bring drama to the red carpet, I was delighted to see her glide down the carpet on this occasion working this Nicholas Oakwell Couture black sheer gown with floral appliqués from the Fall 2013 collection.

It’s a Paloma gown through and through. Opting not to wear a trademark fascinator, she styled her strawberry-blonde locks into a chic updo, just adding touches of red via her lip and nails.

Some might be put off by the sheerness, but considering Rihanna’s sheer look from the CFDA Fashion Awards, this is tame.

You may remember that Gillian Anderson wore this same dress to the Harper’s Bazaar Woman of the Year awards back in November. She opted to line the gown, giving it a different look and feel entirely.

Maria Bello In Nicholas Oakwell Couture – Canadian Screen Awards

Maria Bello In Nicholas Oakwell Couture - Canadian Screen Awards

Maria Bello arrived at the Canadian Screen Awards at Sony Centre for the Performing Arts on Sunday (March 9) in Toronto, Canada.

The actress wore yet another Nicholas Oakwell Couture dress, this time from the Spring 2013 collection.

I love the relaxed silhouette of her white kaftan gown featuring shimmering striped embellishment, which she accented with a silver waistband.

Her delightful frock thankfully wasn’t over-accessorized, with just stud earrings styling the look and a simple bun providing the finishing touch.

Jane Fonda In Nicholas Oakwell Couture – Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Party

Jane Fonda attended the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscars Party on Sunday (March 2) evening.

The legendary actress wore a Nicholas Oakwell Fall 2012 Couture gown and not surprisingly, looked amazing.

I was so happy she went with white because if anyone can pull it off, it is Jane Fonda. A different colour in the clutch could have made it pop more but it still looks great and put together.

She rounded her look with Choppard jewelry, burgundy nails and her usual short hair look.

How fabulous is she?

Maria Bello joined Vanessa Hudgens on the red carpet for the 7th Annual Hollywood Domino and Bovet 1822 Gala at Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood yesterday evening (February 27).

The actress wore a Nicholas Oakwell Fall 2013 Couture black slinky shimmering cocktail dress with a fringed back styled with Gina black pumps and an Amanda Pearl clutch.

It’s a shame some of the details are lost against the black background, but from what I can make out this is a sexy, fun, spirited look.

Abbie Cornish In Nicholas Oakwell Couture – ‘RoboCop’ LA Premiere

Abbie Cornish In Nicholas Oakwell Couture - 'RoboCop' LA Premiere

Abbie Cornish attended the premiere of ‘Robocop’ on Monday (February 10) in Hollywood, California.

The Australian actress looked stunning wearing a Nicholas Oakwell Couture black sheer gown featuring subtle embellished detailing throughout, open-back and a silver metallic waistband.

It’s a shame that most of the intended impact of this look was almost swallowed up by the black carpet and back drop. But, even with that going against her, this look was still a wonderful sight to behold.

A side-parted rolled updo and an Edie Parker clutch completed her look.

Stunning, or is the black backdrop ruining this for you?

Sheridan Smith In Nicholas Oakwell Couture – National Television Awards 2014

Sheridan Smith In Nicholas Oakwell Couture - National Television Awards 2014

BAFTA winning actress Sheridan Smith took to the red carpet at the 2014 National Television Awards at the O2 Arena in London yesterday evening (January 22).

Wearing a Nicholas Oakwell Couture floor-length dress and with her hair in a retro beehive, Sheridan looked quite the 60s starlet.

You may remember that we’ve seen Portia Freeman wear this same dress to the 2012 British Fashion Awards. The two ladies each put a their own unique spin on it.

Instead of following in Portia’s rockier model look, Sheridan turned this bronze and brown sequin column dress into an altogether more sophisticated get-up which was reminiscent of a retro movie heroine.

To finish the look, Sheridan chose a small black clutch and sky-high heels in order not to distract from the sleek hair and make-up, and of course, the stand-out dress.

I’m actually surprised by how covered up Sheridan is here, especially considering her height, but it works. It’s quirky and genuinely refreshing to see her try something different.
