Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Rita Ora In Vivienne Westwood - British Fashion Awards 2013

Rita Ora played quite the va-va-voom vixen at the 2013 British Fashion Awards, held on Monday at the London Coliseum in England.

British designer Vivienne Westwood was responsible for Rita’s fierce transformation, as the songstress struck a smoldering pose in a glittery gunmetal, strapless corset gown with a slight fishtail train from the designer’s Gold Label Capsule collection.

As if there was not enough sparkle on this allover sequin affair, she upped the shine quotient even more with embellished black Christian Louboutin ‘Artifice’ pumps, a daringly spikey clutch and a number of Cartier pieces from the High Jewellery Panthère collection, including a cocktail ring, bracelet and necklace.

It’s hard to imagine anything outdoing the dazzle of the dress and its accouterments, but Rita’s platinum blonde, retro waves nearly did. Of course, her signature red lip was painted on in full force.

With all that glint, not to mention the bright, white locks and a good dose of cleavage, this OTT look boasted a certain brand of visual overload that I ultimately couldn’t get behind. What about you?

Gwyneth Paltrow In Prada - British Fashion Awards 2013

Gwyneth Paltrow made an appearance at Monday evening’s 2013 British Fashion Awards, held at the London Coliseum in England where she presented Miuccia Prada with the event’s inaugural International Designer of the Year award.

Whereas some stars swept through in varying degrees of dazzle, Gwynnie dialed back the glam with a straightforward Prada ensemble. The body-con, pink-and-maoon colour-block top, with a pretty sweetheart neckline, was paired with a black, pleated schoolgirl skirt.

Black Prada micro-pailettes sandals, Delfina Delettrez rings and white diamond and morganite earrings by Boucheron topped off the simplified, sleek look.

A deep side part and slight wave were a small twist on her standard ’do, while her makeup stayed in the barely-there category.

Sienna Miller In Burberry - British Fashion Awards 2013

Sienna Miller brought a welcome shot of jewel-toned colour to the 2013 British Fashion Awards, held on Monday at the London Coliseum in England.

Sadly, the vibrant emerald hue of her Burberry Prorsum side-slit gown was about the only component working in her favour.

Not only were the flashy tribal Dominic Jones ‘Kamba’ necklace and silver sandals a harsh counterpoint, they made her bronze clutch appear all the more out of place.

But my biggest issues with her entrance were the visible wrinkles of a rumpled dress and the ill-fitting bodice that did her no justice, not to mention her pink-stained, messy-curly locks.

I just wanted to lend her a brush.

Harry Styles In Saint Laurent - British Fashion Awards 2013

Harry Styles put a handsome, heartthrob spin on the red carpet at the 2013 British Fashion Awards, hosted Monday at the London Coliseum in England where he picked up the British Style Icon award.

The One Direction cutie was appropriately finessed in an all-black Saint Laurent look. Super slim-fitting and just edgy enough, the ensemble had style-stud and rock-star written all over it.

Rather than go the standard tie route, Harry finished the look with a micro-printed scarf coolly wrapped over his half-unbuttoned shirt.

Need we even comment on his mop of long locks?

Arizona Muse In Louis Vuitton - British Fashion Awards 2013

Arizona Muse made her way down the red carpet at the 2013 British Fashion Awards, hosted at the London Coliseum in England on Monday.

The American model, who currently resides in London, vamped up the proceedings with a dramatic Louis Vuitton black, off-the shoulder gown with a tiered skirt and additional hemline applique.

Messika diamond pendant earrings thankfully took the place of a necklace with a Messika diamond bracelet and Louis Vuitton clutch also accessorizing the look.

The gown doesn’t photograph too well, but looked stunning in person.

Arizona was a natural beauty with her effortlessly swept-back bun and a light smokey eye.
