Lily Allen In Vivienne Westwood – 2014 BAFTAs

Lily Allen In Vivienne Westwood - 2014 BAFTAsLily Allen was no shrinking violet at the 2014 BAFTAs today (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The British songstress, who performed at the awards ceremony, wore her own performance piece on the red carpet in a Vivienne Westwood Couture duchess satin concoction.

She obviously took it upon herself to breathe some vivid life into the evening’s proceedings, colouring outside the lines with this ‘Grande Bubbly Corset Gown’ in coral, pink, orange and magenta.

The spirited, clashing shades of this theatrical ball gown, which was tied with a gigantic bow at the back, weren’t the only attention-grabbers. Lily topped off the look with a pink-fringed hairpiece that radiated from her jet-black updo, along with heavy-handed, flicked black eyeliner.

Sparkling jewels from David Morris were pretty, but easily overpowered by the quirky heft of the ensemble.

It’s almost hard not to at least appreciate the spirit of her funky entrée to the show. It certainly wasn’t boring.

    The dress is growing on me but the headpiece certainly is not.

    I think the dress is overwhelming her, and too much jewelry.

    This a mess. It’s just so much going on, it’s like she was rolling around in bed with it

    No… No… No…

    The headpiece makes her look like a technicolor saloon girl. I just can’t get past it.

    I both do and don’t like this. I think the elaborate design of the gown works against the block color pattern. However, I’m sort of glad to see someone wear this at a major event. Overall, I’m thinking this gets an “‘A’ for effort”.

    Terrible, horrible and did I mention terrible?

    The fabric looks so cheap.

    It looks like she had fun but I still don’t like this look.

    Madame GiGi’s Outrageous Cancan Dancer called. She wants to get back her dress…

      My sentiments exactly

    Ignoring the head piece-Best dressed by far of the night. Beautiful gown, beautiful colours!

      Except for the best dressed part (I haven’t seen many pictures) – I agree
