Christine Bleakley In Philip Armstrong – 2013 National Television Awards

Christine Bleakley In Philip Armstrong - 2013 National Television Awards

I was really surprised by Christine Bleakley’s red carpet choice at the 2013 National Television Awards, held at the O2 Arena in London last night.

That’s because her Philip Armstrong Atelier red crepe gown with lace inserts was worn exactly two weeks ago by Helen Hunt at the 2013 Critics’ Choice Awards.

All parties would’ve known the gown had just been worn so the only reasoning is because she wanted the comparison.

Considering she may be locating to the US with her footballer fiancé Frank Lampard, who may play for LA Galaxy, I guess she wanted the Hollywood connection.

It’s a gorgeous gown, and she looks equally gorgeous in it, but this was a strange decision by the designer to allow this dress to be worn again so soon when he had just cracked America.

Helen Hunt In Philip Armstrong – 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

Helen Hunt In Philip Armstrong - 2013 Critics' Choice Movie Awards

Helen Hunt was radiant on the red carpet yesterday evening when she attended the 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

She wore a gown by British designer Philip Armstrong, who can count Coleen Rooney, Alesha Dixon, Tess Daly and Kelly Rowland as clients.

The streamlined red sleeveless gown with sexy lace insert details from the designer’s Atelier collection was styled with glamorous loose waves and natural makeup.

Gold Rene Caovilla sandals, Martin Katz Fine Jewelry and a Lauren Merkin ‘Lucca’ clutch completed her breathtaking look.

I love that the demure actress selected such a bold gown.

Alesha Dixon In Philip Armstrong – The British Academy Children’s Awards

Alesha Dixon attended the British Academy Children’s Awards held at the London Hilton on Sunday evening dressed in a fruity frock.

The coral dress designed by Philip Armstrong is a custom look from the two dresses which feature in his Resort 2013 collection.

Her dress takes the cut-out in the neckline from one dress and the shape and soft pleated skirt of the other, with a sprinkling of mirrored stones and gold embellishments to create this standout piece.

Gold Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, kohl-rimmed eyes, pink lips and a wavy bob completed her look.

Do you prefer Alesha’s look or the original pieces?

Coleen Rooney In Philip Armstrong – Philip Armstrong Fashion Show

It was WAGs night out in Manchester yesterday, as Philip Armstrong hosted a fashion show at Harvey Nichols’ department store with Coleen Rooney in attendance.

Coleen opted to wear a pink fit-and-flare Philip Armstrong dress with padded shoulders which is not to dissimilar from the previous look.

Whilst the dress has some cute elements, you wouldn’t wear this dress past the age of five for a themed costume party.

What was the designer thinking when incorporating those nude panels? Which don’t look so nude against Coleen’s tangoed tan.

Giuseppe Zanotti beige mesh peep-toe platforms and a gold YSL clutch completed her pukey pink look.

You can buy Coleen’s Giuseppe Zanotti slingbacks from farfetch.com.

Coleen Rooney In Philip Armstrong – John Smith’s Grand National Ladies’ Day

More WAG watch as Coleen Rooney was out again today at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool, England with her WAG-a-licious posse for the John Smith’s Grand National Ladies’ Day.

Coleen showed her support for local Liverpool designer Philip Armstrong by looking uber cute wearing one of his dresses.

Last month she tweeted how much she loved this sleeveless dress has a lace top with a structural flares skirt.

She accessorized with Christian Louboutin peep-toes and a black fold-over clutch.

A top knot and diamond-studded earrings completed the look.

This is quite a refined look for the WAG don’t you agree?

Love or loathe?

Katy Perry In Philip Armstrong – “Arthur” London Premiere

Katy Perry and her husband Russell Brand were inseparable tonight at the “Arthur” London Premiere which was held at the Cineworld 02 Arena.

She dazzled in a very predictable Katy Perry dress – nude, figure-hugging and dazzling with embellishments.

Her Philip Armstrong Fall 2011 asymmetrical nude gown was teamed with matching Brian Atwood pumps – another favourite of Katy’s.

I’m really glad she let the dress do all the talking. Sometimes I find her antics a tad distracting to concentrate on what she’s wearing.

Whilst this gown might not be to everyone’s tastes, I think she pull this look perfectly.

You may remember Dannii Minogue wore London-based designer Philip Armstrong on Week 5 of the X Factor.
