Red Carpet Rivals

Last night the red carpets were rolled out for the Baftas in London and the Grammys in LA. Unfortunately the British weather wasn't kind to the film industry's celebrities, however they still shone like a Summer's day in their glamorous gowns. Marion Cotillard looked radiant in a canary yellow dress. I love the slice of sheer, which is a key trend for Spring/Summer this year. Jessica Chastain also opted for a bold colour, and I think the cobalt blue (also huge for Spring) compliments her red hair beautifully.

The Bafta Babes


Clockwise from left: Marion Cotillard wearing Dior Couture, Saoirse Ronan wearing Christopher Kane, Jessica Chastain wearing Roland Mouret, Paloma Faith wearing Nicholas Oakwell, Jennifer Lawrence wearing Dior.

As for my favourite dressed stars at the Grammys, Rihanna is top of the list. She was just the right amount of sexy in a red dress with sheer overlay. Solange Knowles dressed to perfection in a sparkling green dress with a side-split. Thankfully she managed to control her revealing leg, unlike J-Lo who stuck it out at an awkward angle in the exact same way Angela Jolie did at the Oscars last year. Shame on you J-Lo! 

The Grammy Goddesses

Clockwise from left: Carey Mulligan wearing Lanvin, Solange Knowles wearing Ralph & Russo Couture, Kelly Rowland wearing Georges Chakra, Karlie Kloss wearing Michael Kors, Rihanna wearing Alaia.

Who's red carpet outfit did you admire the most?

P.S. Speaking of best dressed, I have been short-listed for a styling competition with Company and River Island. It's all very exciting and I should find out this week if I've won the chance to style for the May issue of Company magazine. Fingers crossed! Click here to see one of my looks I submitted, to which they said some very lovely things!
