Red carpet round-up

Monday, December 9th, 2013

 

We’ve still got our eyes peeled for festive frock inspiration and the red carpet has been a great place to get ideas over the past week with premieres and award ceremonies galore.

We take a look at some of the outfits we’ve been lusting after lately.

Joanne Froggatt

We’re used to seeing her in a frumpy maid’s outfit in Downton Abbey, but Joanne Froggatt looked anything but dowdy as she appeared at the Moet British Independent Film Awards on Sunday. Her strapless black jumpsuit looked sleek and modern, teamed with simple black heels and a black clutch, while her poker straight hair and smoky eye makeup complemented the outfit perfectly.

Jumpsuits are the perfect party outfit if you don’t want to wear a dress. Simply team with skyscraper heels and you’re good to go.

Duchess of Cambridge

The Duchess of Cambridge showed why she is one of the most copied style icons of recent years in a floor-length white dress at the premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. The structured Roland Mouret gown featured a daring thigh-high split and flattering long sleeves, perfect for a winter night out.

And despite having the royal jewellery box at her disposal, Kate accessorised with a statement necklace from high street fave Zara, which cost just £19.99. We’ll certainly be trying to get our hands on one for the festive season.

Rita Ora

Rita Ora was channelling 1940s screen sirens at the British Fashion Awards in a daring Vivienne Westwood dress. The strapless metallic number showed off the singer’s curves and the look was completed by some statement jewels, a soft platinum wavy hair-do and a slick of ruby red lipstick. It doesn’t get more glamorous than that!

Alexa Chung

Alexa Chung also wowed us at the British Fashion Awards in a little white dress. The three-time recipient of the British Style Award may have lost out on the night to Harry Styles, but she certainly looked like a winner in the Stella McCartney mini with a cross-over style front.

The pointed-toe wedge heels with ankle straps she paired the dress with were a nice alternative to traditional heels and added a quirky touch to the ensemble.

Our picks for the British Fashion Awards

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

The nominees for the British Fashion Awards are in and as is to be expected it’s a veritable who’s who of the biggest names in the industry.

We take a look at the nominees in the most fiercely-contested categories, and who we think deserves to walk away with the trophies.

International Designer of the Year

Three heavyweight designers; Marc Jacobs, Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons will be battling it out for this prize, but we think it’s got Jacobs’ name written all over it after his swansong show at Louis Vuitton was the highlight of Paris Fashion Week.

Sarah Burton

Womanswear Designer of the Year

This one’s a bit tougher, we’ve certainly coveted pieces from all of Christopher Kane, Phoebe Philo and Sarah Burton’s recent collections. Philo gave us the pale pink coat of the year at Celine, while Kane took statement sweaters to a whole new level, but it was Burton’s 1920’s art-inspired red, black and white spring/summer collection which really caught our eyes.

Model of the Year

While Edie Campbell and Sam Rollinson are certainly worthy contenders, we’d be very surprised if model of the moment and permanent London party scene fixture Cara Delevingne doesn’t walk away with this award after stunning appearances at Marc Jacobs, Burberry and Stella McCartney among others during Fashion Month.

Accessory Designer of the Year

How do we choose between Anya Hindmarch, Charlotte Olympia and Nicholas Kirkwood? We don’t envy the judging panel in this category, but if we absolutely have to pick one, we’d choose Charlotte Olympia. Her embellished flats, particularly the Kitty embroidered slippers, have to be one of the reasons why flats are so on-trend at the moment.

British Style Award

There are no nominees for this award as the British public get to vote for their style icon of the year. Odds are that Alexa Chung will scoop the prize for the fourth year in a row. But while Ms Chung is undeniably a sartorial inspiration, we’d like to see a bit of variation. Surely, Carrie Mulligan, Cara Delevingne or the Duchess of Cambridge might be in with a chance this year?

Fancy going to the awards?

The biggest surprise this year, is that members of the public have a chance to bag themselves tickets to the ceremony on December 2nd, with prices starting at just £45. We can’t think of anything better than catching a glimpse or perhaps even rubbing shoulders with our fashion heroes so we’ll definitely be trying to get our hands on tickets.
