19.02.09 Best Dressed

2009 Brit Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
This J. Mendel strapless tulle mermaid gown may have been OTT for some of you, but I loved Nicola Roberts in this dress.

For the first time she really stands out from the group. She is glowing, and I particularly love her hair and make-up.

Becki Newton has also worn this dress.

Best Group Award
Girls Aloud as a group looked fantastic last night.

From left to right, Nadine Coyle wore a peachy strapless William Tempest dress with matching Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toes.

Kimberly Walsh opted for a white plunging Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 gown, with cut-outs and embellished trims.

Sarah Harding opted for a sexy Vivienne Westwood peachy taffeta dress, with a very revealing split up the side and satin champagne Christian Louboutin pointy heels. Her hair was style waves.

I will say that Cheryl Cole on the far right, did disappoint me slightly, as the top part of her Georges Chakra dress does not work for me.

Best Black Award
Kylie Minogue looked radiant in a black sequinned floor-length strapless Dolce & Gabbana gown, which had an embellished bow detailed sash.

Best Embellishments Award
Taylor Swift loves to sparkle on the red carpet. She took a break from wearing an embellished dress at the Grammy’s, but she reverted back to her red carpet favourite last night, wearing a silver strapless stone sequin mini Kaufman Franco dress.

Best Use Of Colour Award
I’m in love with electric blue this season, so Alexandra Burke had to make my Best Dressed List wearing a Emilio de la Moreno round neck fitted dress, which she wears with black sgtrappy Christian Louboutin buckle sandals.

Most Daring Award
The singer know as Little Boots, embraced the spirit of this rock n’ roll event by wearing an geometric Alexander McQueen Spring 2009 dress, with YSL grey patent heels.

Most Improved Award
OK it’s still black, but Duffy look considerably better from her Grammy disasters.

Her LBD from Paule Ka’s Spring 2009 collection, I thought looked quite stylish, and her nude and black trim peep-toes complimented her dress very well.

Kinda Like It Award
I was ready to instantly dislike Pixie Geldof’s look before I even saw it, but I actually kinda like it.

Best On Trend Shoe Award
Katherine Jenkins is wearing what is fast becoming the celebrity shoe of choice, the neon pink Alexander McQueen Heart peep-toe pumps.

I personally find this refreshing from the YSL Trib Two’s, which I’m quite frankly tired of seeing on the red carpet.

The singer wore a Azzedine Alaia figure-hugging LWD.

Most Charitable Award
Katy Perry’s bustier was designed by The Blonds to raise money for The Educational Foundation for the Fashion Industries. You can already bid for this Hello Kitty bustier with pink and silver chains, and black beads on Ebay.

Her gladiator heels and leggings are not for sale.

19.02.09 Worst Dressed

2009 Brit Awards – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
Colour-blocking is very on trend, but Katie White from the Ting Tings green, plus neon pink and yellow LF Markey Spring 2009 ensemble just hurts my eyes.

Worst Modification Award
Estelle shortened this Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 dress from the runway, and for me in the process ruined it.

The hem looks really awkward and messy.

From the look on her face, she not to happy with this look either.

Worst Hair & Make-Up
Alesha Dixon is such a pretty girl, but her blunt bangs cover up too much of her face. I also did not like her make-up, especially her bubblegum pink lipstick, which matched her heels.

Worst Black Award
Even with that unnecessary added piece of material, Natalie Imbruglia’s strapless black dress is very bland.

Worst Shoes Award
Why wear such a pretty dress, if you are just going to wear a pair of busted shoes?

Alexa Chung’s gorgeous harlequin dress is vintage, but she could have worn some Louboutin’s or Choo’s to match the vibrant nature of her sparkling dress.

Victoria Beckham Matchy Matchy Award
Amanda Holden is wearing waaayyyy to much purple for my liking.

A gold strappy sandal to compliment her embellished halter, would have broken up the matchy matchy look.

Worst Floral Award
Someone should remind Denise Lewis that this is the Brit Awards.

She is not going for afternoon tea with her granny.

Most Disappointing Award
Fearne Cotton is one to rely on during these types of events, but she really lets me down in this blazer and mini skirt combo. Not red carpet ready at all.

Girls Aloud At The Brit Awards


Top selling UK girl group Girls Aloud were the loudest – colourwise – on the red carpet at the Brit Awards this week, which I love because nothing annoys me more than all black on the red carpet.

Thankfully the days when girl groups had to dress alike are over. Each girl had her own look to match their personality, and each girl more importantly owned their look.

From the left Sarah Harding was wearing dress by Ashley Isham, shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti, earrings and ring by Sho and clutch by Angel Jackson.

Kimberley Walsh was wearing a dress by Ashley Isham, earrings and large ring by Sho, coloured stone rings both from Missoma, shoes by Brian Atwood, belt by Angel Jackson and bag by Vaza.

Cheryl Cole was wearing dress by Alice + Olivia, a belt by Angel Jackson, shoes by Miu Miu, earrings and ring by de Grisogono and bag by Vaza.

Nicola Roberts was wearing a dress by David Szeto, earrings and ring by Sho, belt by Angel Jackson, shoes by Rupert Sanderson, bag by Vaza.

I love Kimberley’s look, this is very much my style, but I am in love with both Sarah’s Angel Jackson bag and Cheryl’s Vaza bag.

Brit Awards 2008 Red Carpet

Kylie Minogue won the International Female Solo Artist Award at tonight’s Brit Awards. I keep forgetting she is Australian, as she has played a very large part in British pop culture.

Tonight Kylie went for all-out-glamour. She wore a sparkly strapless velvet vintage black dress by Vicky Tiel.

The sparkles were also dripping from her ears and around her neck.

Fabulous.

Rihanna looked incredibly cute wearing a metallic silver dress by Dolce & Gabbana, with matching silver shoes.

Rihanna surprisingly did not win any awards tonight.

The Gossip singer Beth Ditto looks looks like a cute sugar plum fairy in her pretty pink prom dress which was custom-made by Luella.

Adele won the Music Critic’s Award, but she loses in the style stakes wearing all black. Beth Ditto needs to give Adele style tips.

This gold mini dress is just too cheap and brassy for Denise Van Outen.

Co-host Kelly Osbourne wore this multi-block-coloured gown.

I have been preferring her shorter looks lately.

Katherine Jenkins gave Kylie a run for her money in the style-stakes wearing an ivory Valentino Spring 2008 off-the-shoulder mini flapper-style dress.

Attention seeking Abigail Clancy, got the attention she was clearly looking for when she wore this sheer dress.

I don’t know what I am more annoyed at, the shamelessness of this stunt, or that fact that she is not wearing matching underwear.

KT Tunstall wore a stunning beaded number. I am usually not a fan of her style, but she gets it right me here.

Kate Nash is another lady who is pretty in pink, right down to her shoes.

Kelly Rowland’s dress has Tina Knowles written all over it, tacky, tacky and tacky, but at least she had the feathers to keep her warm.

Backstage Kelly looked more like a star and less like a streetwalker in this plunge-neck gown.

Leona Lewis in this Roberto Cavalli dress is a little boring and predictable here, when so many others opted for loud bright colours.

Alesha Dixon did not dare to go bare legged in this ultra mini red dress from Jenny Packham’ Fall 2007 collection.

Ferne Cotton has nice legs, but I am hating this red playsuit from PPQ.

Cheryl Cole (in yellow) recently found out in that her husband is a no-good cheating skank.

She has been going though the heart-breaking decision of leaving him, but does not let the anguish show here. Quite the opposite in fact, she is showing Mr Cole just what he is missing.

Good on your girl, way to keep your head up. He is not worth it.

In case you were wondering, I am HATING the lipstick, everything else works though.

I am loving what the other girls are wearing as they look sexy and fun, but the Farrah Fawcett hair on the red head, Nicole, is just killing me.
