Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Ruth Wilson  In Peter Pilotto - Harper’s Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards 2013

Ruth Wilson joined Cate Blanchett, Naomie Harris and Victoria Beckham on the red carpet for the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards held at Claridge’s Hotel in London yesterday evening.

I often associate the British actress with Dior so I was delighted to see her try something new on the red carpet, donning a multi-print Peter Pilotto Spring 2013 fiery frock featuring a sheer asymmetrical panel at the waist and a flared A-line skirt which thankfully maintained its volume off the runway.

This dress was a big challenge for her (as it would be for anyone), and one she could’ve easily pulled off, but the cutesy curls don’t quite go with the edgy, fashion-forward frock.

Had she sexed it up with a sleek ponytail, low bun or even a centre-parted straightened ‘do, I would’ve loved this look.

Naomie Harris In Gucci - Harper’s Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards 2013

Naomie Harris joined a host of award-winning stars such as Cate Blanchett, Victoria Beckham and Rita Ora for the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards held at Claridge’s Hotel in London yesterday evening, where she picked up the British Actress of the Year award.

Opting for a look from Gucci’s Spring 2014 collection, the stunning actress selected this pale-pink-and-orange jacquard spaghetti-strapped jumpsuit with the black mesh bra which Rosie Huntington-Whiteley opted to wear with her look on Saturday evening.

I know many of you weren’t too fond of the bra being a feature on many of the pieces from this collection, but Naomie pulls it off without a hint of the look feeling tacky, and I think that is down to her not being too well endowed.

Black suede-and-patent-leather open-toe Gucci booties with black elastic bands, silver earrings and a black Edie Parker clutch completed her look.

I love the look from head to toe; her makeup couldn’t be more perfect. I’m in awe.

Mollie King In Gucci - Harper’s Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards 2013

Mollie King attended the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards held at Claridges Hotel in London yesterday evening alongside Victoria Beckham, Rita Ora and Cate Blanchett.

The Saturdays singer is usually the better dresser of all the girls, but on this occasion I’m totally perplexed by her look.

While I love her Gucci Fall 2013 contrast-print houndstooth and Prince-of-Wales-check dress with a sexy black neck panel, this dress couldn’t be more wrong for her.

Yes, she has every right to experiment outside the what-is-expected-of-a-girl-band Topshop, AQ/AQ and Three Floor mini frocks, but this dress would look better on a grown woman.

By that I mean a Jessica Chastain, Nicole Kidman or Cate Blanchett; they possess the poise and confidence to carry this look.

On Mollie it ages her, drastically, but I appreciate the effort.

A sweeping updo and Gucci ‘Lili’ sandals completed her look.

Rita Ora In Ermanno Scervino - Harper’s Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards 2013

Despite many of you outside (and even inside) the UK failing to understand the big deal about Rita Ora, the British singer was honoured with the Musician of the Year award last night while attending the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards at Claridge’s Hotel in London.

Working a new platinum ‘do, Rita opted for another winter-white look, donning a lightly embellished long-sleeved lace Ermanno Scervino Fall 2013 gown, which she styled with a silver ear cuff and a selection of silver rings.

The gown is stunning and I’m slowing coming to grips with the hair, but I’m not a fan of the ghostly makeup with the bold red lip.

Cate Blanchett In Givenchy - Harper's Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards 2013

Oscar front-runner and the star of Woody Allen’s acclaimed film ‘Blue Jasmine’, Cate Blanchett, who also appears on the cover of the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar, was named International Actress of the Year at the Harper’s Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards.

The Australian actress looked stunning at the event, which was held at Claridges in London yesterday evening, wearing a Givenchy Spring 2014 walnut-coloured crepe jersey dress with embroidered cuffs which, I will admit, didn’t have much red-carpet appeal on the runway, but the beauty of Cate is that everything she touches turns to red-carpet gold.

Keeping accessories to a bare minimum, she styled her look with nude Givenchy sandals and a gold necklace which cascaded down the open V-back of her dress.

Victoria Beckham In Victoria Beckham - Harper's Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards 2013

Victoria Beckham was honoured with the ‘Special Contribution to British Fashion’ award for her achievements as a designer at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year awards held at Claridge’s Hotel yesterday in London.

Attending with the other man in her life, Brooklyn Beckham, the designer was of course decked out in her own threads, wearing a black floor-length gown.

Steeped with classic VB signatures including the exposed zipper at the back, this gown maintains the perfect mix of classic and contemporary, with a sexy cut-out bodice and an elegant puddle train.

Glossy side-swept locks and diamond jewels completed her look.

You may remember that both Rachel Weisz (in tangerine) and Christina Aguilera have previously worn this gown.
