Labrinth In Dent de Man – 2013 Brit Awards

Labrinth In Dent de Man - 2013 Brit Awards

As you know I love a printed colourful suit, so Labrinth caught my eye as he made his way down the red carpet at the O2 Arena for the 2013 Brit Awards last night.

He wore a Dent de Man dapper slim-fit suit.

I love the mix of traditional menswear tailoring with the soulful African print which reflects the musician’s personality.

A white buttoned up dress shirt, a black hat and Christian Louboutin ‘Fredapoitiers’ loafers with studded details completed her look.

Needless to say J’Adore.

JLS In Marc Wallace – 2013 Brit Awards

Brit Awards 2013 - Red Carpet Arrivals

Joining fellow boybanders One Direction, JLS also took to the red carpet at the O2 Arena for the 2013 Brit Awards yesterday evening.

While colour-coordinating their outfits in different shades of brown, the members of JLS had a very fun look with a quintessential British feel.

Each of them wore Marc Wallace three-piece suits with white semi-spread-collar shirts and crown logos printed on their ties.

Marvin’s plaid, notch-lapel suit featured a ticket pocket, which he paired with a red tie and brown-and-tan spectator shoes.

Oritse’s one-button suit was a lighter shade with darker windowpane peak lapels. His classic low-cut waistcoat was a similar dark brown.

Jonathan’s wool, one-button tux differed, with sleeves that matched his shawl lapel. He also wore an orange tie.

Aston went with a lighter-coloured suit with notch lapels. He finished it off with a navy tie and taupe-coloured shoes by Oliver Sweeney which was the same brand worn by each band member.

Oritse is my favourite here.

One Direction – 2013 Brit Awards

Brit Awards 2013 - Red Carpet Arrivals

The 2013 Brit Awards took place in London last night; it was also a chance for the boy bands to shine.

One Direction scrubbed up nicely, sporting a mix of British designers.

The winners of the ‘Global Success Award’ arrived in different looks with one thing in common – black and white.

While each of them wore a black suit, except Liam Payne in an Alexander McQueen black cardigan with gold dragonfly embroidered on the chest, they each featured different details.

Louis Tomlinson opted for an Alexander McQueen shawl collar tux with brown shoes.

Zayn Malik had the most interesting look, wearing a TOPMAN black tuxedo with a black string bow tie.

Niall Horan kept it simple in an ASOS black suit and silver glitter kicks, while the group’s main man, Harry Styles, looked his part as the leader in a Burberry tailored suit with a white flower on his notch lapel. He also wore a patterned Burberry shirt, which he’s been doing a lot of lately.

Zayn gets our vote for best dressed here, followed by Louis.

Alexa Chung In Valentino – 2013 Brit Awards

Alexa Chung In Valentino - 2013 Brit Awards

Alexa Chung was also spotted on the red carpet at the 2013 Brit Awards, held at the O2 Arena in London this evening.

Temperatures have been slowing rising in the capital this week, which may have inspired the star to wear this Valentino embroidered belted ivory short set.

Much like Alexa’s Grammys look, its right for her style but feels wrong for the occasion – let alone the season. Plus I’m slightly baffled by the summery ensemble paired with her black Jimmy Choo ‘Agnes’ suede pumps.

Cropped pants would’ve been preferred.

Hair and makeup wise Alexa looks beautiful. I love that orange lip colour.

Corinne Bailey Rae In Miu Miu – 2013 Brit Awards

Corinne Bailey Rae In Miu Miu - 2013 Brit Awards

With so many sexy gowns with plunging necklines, embellishments and sheer panels, Corinne Bailey Rae went in the opposite direction for the 2013 Brit Awards this evening, which was held at the O2 Arena in London.

The British singer opted for a minimalist look, sporting a Miu Miu Spring 2013 dress.

Her metallic rose-pink three-quarter-sleeve dress, which is purposely creased, was accented with a thin leather belt and styled with red pumps.

I love the simplicity of this look just as much as the va-va-voom Berenice Marlohe was serving on the red carpet. Even though it’s not as grand, it suits her style without being too aging *coughs-Gemma-Arterton-coughs*.

I wasn’t expecting much from this event, so I am pleasantly surprised that I liked most of the looks.

Bérénice Marlohe In Donna Karan Atelier – 2013 Brit Awards

Bérénice Marlohe In Donna Karan Atelier - 2013 Brit Awards

Bérénice Marlohe brought the va-va-voom to the red carpet at the O2 Arena in London this evening for the 2013 Brit Awards, and then some.

The Bond girl was most definitely licensed to thrill wearing a Donna Karan Atelier gown.

Her draped lamé gown, which managed to contained her ample bust and flattered around the waist, makes Berenice look like she’s dripping with liquid gold.

Her makeup artist enhanced her brown eyes, giving her a smouldering smoky look, with a nude lip colour and side-swept waves providing the finishing touches.

Crimson-stone drop earrings accessorized her look.

Rita Ora In Ulyana Sergeenko – 2013 Brit Awards

Rita Ora In Ulyana Sergeenko - 2013 Brit Awards

Rita Ora appeared to have adopted Eddie Redmayne’s leaning red carpet pose while attending the 2013 Brit Awards this evening in London.

Clearly she was inspire by Michael Jackson’s ‘Smooth Criminal’ 45 degree lean while working this pose.

The singer wore a couture gown from Ulyana Sergeenko’s Spring 2013 collection with a custom made snake ring by Jennifer Fisher.

On the model, the duchess-satin sleeveless gown with a cinched-in waist, draped skirt and open back looks very elegant, but that beauty is lost on Rita.

There is just too much ‘try’ in her try-hardness, which throws me off this look.

The back is very unflattering, the length is way too long – long enough to cut another gown from it – and the overall style is just boring.

She has moments of brilliance, but at times I just don’t get her style. It’s just so forced.

A Gucci Spring 2013 perspex clutch and gold jewels completed her look.

Taylor Swift In Elie Saab – 2013 Brit Awards

Taylor Swift In Elie Saab - 2013 Brit Awards

Let me guess: you saw Taylor Swift in Elie Saab in the title for tonight’s 2013 Brit Awards and you immediately thought the popstrel was wearing an embellished gown.

With her MO, I wouldn’t blame you, but on this occasion she wore a sleek Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2013 gown – sans sequins.

The gorgeous black sleeveless gown with sheer panels in the shoulders and skirt was, however, accented with a gold belt for a touch of bling.

Smouldering without her signature red lip colour, the singer opted for neutral makeup with smoky eyes and a dark manicure.

Putting my Elie Saab bias to one side, she was one of the best on the night.
