Rihanna wore an embellished floor length Givenchy Couture gown. The taupe backless dress featured an above-the-knee split and matching plunging neckline, which she paired with a pair of leather gloves and studded heels. I think the dress looks sleek, stylish and modern on her figure. I know that this style of glove is going to be big in Fall/Winter 2012 but its not a trend that I'm a fan of - it draws the attention away from the dress!
The 2012 BRIT Awards were held yesterday evening (January 21st) at the O2 Arena in London. The event was hosted by the fabulous James Corden and stars in attendance included Will.I.Am, Coldplay, Adele and more. I've picked a few looks from the event that I think are blogworthy (some for good reasons, some not so good) and would love to hear your thoughts on each of them! Who's outfit do you think stood out?
Lana Del Ray looked stunning in a red off-the-shoulder floorlength gown from Vivienne Westwood. I wish she's added some edgy accessories to this outfit though as the dress itself is quite simple yet soft and needs something to make it shine. Saying that, I love the shape of the neckline and how she's styled her hair to exemplify it; and I also really like the shape of the dress itself with its flowiness and train.
Florence Welch picked a nude Alexander McQueen gown with a rise and fall skirt and tonnes of frills. I really don't like the dress mainly because its just so busy you don't know where to look - too many frills! I don't think it helps that she is so pale that in some places you kind of can't see where the dress ends and she starts... I do like the Alexander McQueen heels though, the hair is simple but it works and the tonnes of layered rings that she's worn are fab!
Jessie J opted for a sheer red lace dress with floral embroidery and matching red knickers. I generally quite like the sheer trend - its teasing but gives an edge to outfits that would otherwise be a bit simple - however on this occasion I don't think it works at all. There's a difference between having sheer parts of a dress and just wearing a net curtain and the part of her that is most covered is her carves and feet by the fullness of the train... I just don't get it!
