Red Carpet Fashion 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 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 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

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.

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

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.
