Hayden Panettiere In Black Halo Eve – Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013

Hayden Panettiere In Black Halo Eve - Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013

Hayden Panettiere showed us her fashion stripes on the red carpet of the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013, hosted Tuesday night at Berkeley Square Gardens in London.

The ‘Nashville’ starlet wore a monochromatic Black Halo Eve ensemble that featured a structured, all-business Helmut Lang blazer buttoned over a more flirty, horizontally striped frock.

The polished look trended more towards office-chic than glamour-girl, even with Hayden softening the edges via her romantic updo and glowing makeup. Those heavy black booties seemed better suited for fall.

I found myself wanting to see the dress without the jacket and with bolder statement earrings to go with the flash of that metallic Jimmy Choo ‘Carmen’ clutch.

Samantha Barks In Roland Mouret – Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013

Samantha Barks was thinking pink, as she picked up the Pandora Breakthrough trophy at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013, held at Berkeley Square Gardens in London on Tuesday.

Like Jessie J, Samantha electrified the evening with a bold colour, showing off a hot-magenta dress from Roland Mouret’s Resort 2013 collection.

It’s always a thrill to see brightly hued numbers take to the red carpet, and this was no exception.

The halter-neck dress featured an interesting bow-tied detail at the back, so a side-parted updo ensured it wasn’t covered up.

The British actress finished the look with shiny gold peep-toe heels, along with a smoky eye and nude lip.

Rashida Jones In Erdem – Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013

Rashida Jones lounged around the red carpet at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013, where she picked up the Filmmaker prize, on Tuesday at London’s Berkeley Square Gardens.

Donning her bedroom best, she tried out a dark navy look from Erdem’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection that was splashed with a bright English garden floral print.

She wore a modified version from the designer’s lookbook, sans the matching, sheer organza cape, but I wonder if it would have added some interesting drama while lessening the PJs effect.

There’s no doubt the pyjama silhouette is hot right now. I’m just not sure this trendy ensemble was working for the occasion, despite Rashida’s efforts to dress it up with metallic-and-black pumps and a bold red lippie.

Does this look strike you as way cool, or just too casual?

Zosia Mamet In Preen – Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013

Zosia Mamet In Preen - Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013

Making a rather festive entrance, Zosia Mamet was no wallflower at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013, hosted at Berkeley Square Gardens in London on Tuesday night.

The ‘Girls’ star, who won the International TV Actress award, wore a Preen Fall 2013 dress for the occasion.

Featuring heavy embellishment, the frock was decorated with multicoloured jewels that were shaped into floral blooms and arranged in a trellis pattern. This was a glittery garden, to say the least, but the silhouette of the dress and the waist-widening black center band left something to be desired.

While the sparkling ensemble had some fun flourish, it didn’t stand a chance with the lacklustre styling. Plain black pumps didn’t deliver the same zing as the red runway booties.

Once again the minimal makeup trend was alive and well here, except for Zosia’s overly exaggerated winged cat eye. But a bold lippie or a bit of blush would have breathed some life into this look.

Rita Ora In Marchesa – Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013

Rita Ora In Marchesa - Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013

Earlier this week I was perplexed by Rita Ora’s Alexandre Vauthier look, today at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013, held at Berkeley Square Gardens in London, I have to give her a stand ovation.

The British singer, with the most inconsistent style, looked stunning wearing a Marchesa Spring 2013 gown.

Her pale-grey – typically dramatic and romantic – Marchesa gown with silver embroidery and tulle layers was styled with Chopard jewels.

I think many of you hit the nail on the head when you attributed her signature red lippie as the reason why many of her looks fail. It’s just too harsh at times.

On this occasion she opted for a softer nude lip colour, however, she did go for a heavy smoky eye.

Much improved or will you just never get on board with Rita’s style?
