Katy Perry In Vivienne Westwood – Elle Style Awards 2014

Katy Perry In Vivienne Westwood Gold Label - Elle Style Awards 2014

Katy Perry celebrated alongside the great and good of the fashion industry at the 2014 Elle Style Awards, held at one Embankment in central London (February 18).

Katy chose iconic British designer Vivienne Westwood to accept her Elle Woman of the Year award. And what a fabulous dress to acceot such an award.

As can be expected from Westwood, the Gold Label Capsule Collection ‘Prestige’ dress in silk ivory rose print is cut exceptionally and makes Katy more curvaceously sexy than I’ve see her before.

The floral print is light, feminine and pretty which helps from over-dramatizing the look.

To finish, Katy added Christian Louboutin ‘Body Strass’ jeweled pumps for a contemporary spin and a red polish to channel some retro Elizabeth Taylor glamour.

The only aspect I’d change about this look is Katy’s hair, and most specifically her fringe. Is it me or is it just too short?

Lily Allen In Vivienne Westwood – 2014 BAFTAs

Lily Allen In Vivienne Westwood - 2014 BAFTAsLily Allen was no shrinking violet at the 2014 BAFTAs today (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The British songstress, who performed at the awards ceremony, wore her own performance piece on the red carpet in a Vivienne Westwood Couture duchess satin concoction.

She obviously took it upon herself to breathe some vivid life into the evening’s proceedings, colouring outside the lines with this ‘Grande Bubbly Corset Gown’ in coral, pink, orange and magenta.

The spirited, clashing shades of this theatrical ball gown, which was tied with a gigantic bow at the back, weren’t the only attention-grabbers. Lily topped off the look with a pink-fringed hairpiece that radiated from her jet-black updo, along with heavy-handed, flicked black eyeliner.

Sparkling jewels from David Morris were pretty, but easily overpowered by the quirky heft of the ensemble.

It’s almost hard not to at least appreciate the spirit of her funky entrée to the show. It certainly wasn’t boring.

Foxes In Vivienne Westwood Gold Label – 2014 Grammy Awards

Foxes In Vivienne Westwood Gold Label - 2014 Grammy Awards

Foxes was one of the first out on the red carpet at the 2014 Grammy Awards, hosted at the Staples Center on Sunday (January 26) in Los Angeles, California.

The songstress who’s nominated for Best Dance Recording with music producer Zedd, embraced two trends—monochrome and print—in a Vivienne Westwood Gold Label gown.

The off-the-shoulder, white draped detail brought the romance, while the black-and-white allover squiggle print delivered on some of the funk factor expected at the Grammys.

Skipping the red lip we see so often with monochromatic moments, she went for a nude colour and highlighted her eyes with a heavy kohl-edged cat-eye. A cascade of ombre locks topped off the look.

You may recall we saw Naomie Harris wear Vivienne Westwood’s same doodle-print, manifested in a slightly different style of dress, late last year.

Juliette Lewis In Vivienne Westwood Gold Label – 2014 SAG Awards

Juliette Lewis In Vivienne Westwood Gold Label - 2014 SAG Awards

Juliette Lewis joined a host of other stars at the 2014 SAG Awards, held on Saturday evening (January 18) at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘August: Osage County’ actress has lately been on a red-carpet roll, winning us over with her fashion selections. Tonight, she hit a slight snag in a Vivienne Westwood Gold Label gown.

The petrol-blue silk design, featuring a draped neckline and mock bustle back, was printed in an array of multicolour flowers. She paired the dress with pink and green gemstone drop earrings, a gold geometric box clutch and Bionda Castana metallic heels.

While I appreciate her willingness to take risks and wear a bold hue and print, I just couldn’t get on board with this look. Her styling didn’t increase my affection, either, as her hair looked like it was straight out of a period drama.

Was this a misstep for you, as well?

Anna Kendrick In Vivienne Westwood Red Label – Z100’s Jingle Ball 2013

Anna Kendrick In Vivienne Westwood Red Label - Z100's Jingle Ball 2013

Anna Kendrick attended Z100’s Jingle Ball 2013 held at Madison Square Garden on Friday (December 13) in New York City, where she introduced Ariana Grande’s performance.

On this occasion she wore a Vivienne Westwood Red Label Fall 2013 metallic dual-colour black-and-burgundy dress featuring a cowl neck and bubble skirt.

The dress is cute and fun, perfectly in tune with the festive occasion, but I can’t get on board with that Vivienne Westwood mini ‘Bas Relief’ choker necklace and those Brian Atwood platform pumps.

She could’ve had a lot more fun with her accessories, enhancing rather than pulling down the look.

Rita Ora In Vivienne Westwood Anglomania – The Dorchester Hotel

Rita Ora In Vivienne Westwood Anglomania - The Dorchester Hotel

I know many of you don’t share my appreciation for Rita Ora, but what I like about her is that you can never call her dull.

She looked ready to stop traffic wearing a head-to-toe Vivienne Westwood getup while leaving The Dorchester hotel in London yesterday evening (December 11).

I could’ve been forced to like this look had it just been the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania ‘Brigadier’ camel-and-white printed trousers and white blouse combo, as they aren’t the biggest offenders here.

Words fail me as to why she added that Vivienne Westwood Anglomania shimmering green lurex jacket, which was stark enough without the Rimmel red lip.

Vivienne Westwood Gold Label platform cream lace-up boots and a Fendi ‘Selleria Anna 1322′ bag with ‘RITA’ in bold blue emblazoned on the side completed her look.

Do you like this experimental look or are you ready to send her off to clown college?
