Jourdan Dunn In Balmain – 2013 Brit Awards

Jourdan Dunn In Balmain - 2013 Brit Awards

Despite her peers jetting off to Milan for round three of Fashion Month yesterday, Jourdan Dunn opted to stay home and celebrate British music at the 2013 Brit Awards, held at the O2 Arena this evening.

Showing off those lean legs, the model, who walked for Burberry Prorsum and many others this week, donned a Balmain Spring 2013 dress.

We haven’t seen much of this collection on the red carpet; maybe that’s because you have to have a supermodel figure to pull off many of the tricky-to-wear pieces.

Sporting a smouldering glare, Jourdan styled her look with black strappy sandals, adding a bronze lip.

Jessie J In Versace – 2013 Brit Awards

Jessie J In Versace - 2013 Brit Awards

Even though Jessie J has been working this transformation for a while now, once again I almost didn’t recognise her on the red carpet at the 2013 Brit Awards, held at the O2 Arena in London this evening.

Giving us a our first look from the Versace Pre-Fall 2013 collection, the singer wore a black long-sleeved asymmetrical gown with a sexy plunge, which was accented with a gold belt with a Medusa buckle.

Much like Katy Perry, Jessie appears to have also given up the clown makeup and quirky attire and, while that period was fun while it lasted, I’m thankful for this more grown-up, sleek approach.

I know many of you haven’t been so welcoming to this change, saying that Jessie is now looking a tad generic. I think she looks anything but, even with those simple black Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps, which in all honesty perfect the look.

Stooshe In Craig Lawrence, Keko Hainswheeler & Roland Mouret – 2013 Brit Awards

Brit Awards 2013 - Red Carpet Arrivals

Karis Anderson, Courtney Rumbold and Alex Buggs of Stooshe attended the 2013 Brit Awards this evening at the 02 Arena in London, giving us three very different looks.

Karis: The plum-haired beauty opted for an earthy boho vibe, wearing a metallic halter dress by British knitwear designer Craig Lawrence, which she styled with Christian Louboutin shoes.

Courtney: The blonde singer’s red carpet approach was more masculine, yet fun; she rocked a light-blue bespoke three-piece suit by Keko Hainswheeler, which she styled with white platform lace-up pumps à la Geri Halliwell, a pocket square and Vivienne Westwood cufflinks.

Alex: The raven-haired glamour puss wore a gown which I can easily identify as being a Roland Mouret gown. Her blue ‘Lunenberg’ gown cut to form the most flattering hourglass shape is doing exactly that.

For three very different looks, they manage to complement each other very well.

Paloma Faith In Dolce & Gabbana – 2013 Brit Awards

Paloma Faith In Dolce & Gabbana - 2013 Brit Awards

Paloma Faith took to the red carpet at the 2013 Brit Awards, which was held at the O2 Arena in London this evening.

If you are surprised that Paloma is wearing Dolce & Gabbana then shame on you: you don’t read this blog enough.

The Dolce devotee wore a nude lace Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 dress featuring a stunning mix of colourful crystals, which she styled with a jacquard clutch and beige platform pumps.

Factor in the hot-pink pout, her frizzy bi-colour hair, those statement earrings and a jeweled hair brooch and you have one unapologetic over-the-top fab look.

She’s fierce and she knows how to work it. I love her attitude.

Gemma Arterton In Jonathan Saunders – 2013 Brit Awards

Gemma Arterton In Jonathan Saunders - Brit Award 2013

The 2013 Brit Awards is the next major red carpet event to take place in London following the BAFTAs.

Gemma Arterton joined in the celebrations of British music, taking to the red carpet at the O2 Arena this evening wearing a sparkling Jonathan Saunders Spring 2013 ensemble.

I’ve studied this look for a while and even with all those sequins and the bright-red hue, this still feels a bit too frumpy for the Brit Awards – not to mention that it also feels too mature for her.

Black strappy Christian Louboutin for Jonathan Saunders sandals and a bold lip colour to match her look provided the finishing touches.

Are you on the fence with this look? Or does Gemma dazzle you?

Florence Welch In Alexander McQueen – The Universal Brit Awards After Party

Florence Welch wore her third Alexander McQueen look of the night at the Universal Brits Awards after-party in London last night.

On this occasion she donned a Mother of pearl print high neck ruffle dress with a barnacle lace underskirt which is the commercial version of the dress which hit the runway back in October.

On this occasion she did opt for the ruffle Brancusi sandals, plus she added a matching pearl Alexander McQueen skull box clutch.

After long internal debate I have decided that the performance look was my favourite, but I do prefer this hairstyle.

Like many of you, I’m not a fan of her favoured centre parted style.

Florence Welch In Alexander McQueen – 2012 Brit Awards Performance

Following her red carpet appearance at the 2012 Brit Awards in Alexander McQueen, Florence Welch also performed her hit single ‘No Light, No Light’, wearing a different McQueen gown.

Whilst her gown isn’t a runway piece, you can see it was clearly inspired by Look 31 as it has the same gold embroidered detail on the bodice.

The significant difference is the beaded chiffon sheer skirt and the sleeves, which makes for a more wearable performance look.

Florence is fast becoming the perfect brand ambassador for Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen.

It’s a beautiful working relationship, and I’m keen to see how this develops in the future.

I’m unable to pick a favourite of the two gowns, as both have exquisite details and Florence wears them equally well.

Which do you prefer?
