At a fashion award ceremony, you would expect there to be many fashion risks on the red carpet, but in actuality there wasn’t. However, there were many people wearing the color black, including the lovely Victoria Beckham who showed off her figure, and her back, in a sleek black dress. Kate Hudson wore a black dress too, and even though the dress was beautiful, the color didn’t fit her well. I would’ve liked to see her in a bolder color. Daphne Guinness also showed up in a black, boxy number, but her outfit was way too much. It was leather, very tight fitting, and didn’t really suit the event.
In fact, there were quite a few people who wore outfits that didn’t look great. For example, Kate Moss wore this nude colored dress with a black net dress covering over it, and it wasn’t creative at all.
Alexa Chung was stunning, and it’s no surprise that the public voted to give her the British Style Award for the second year in a row. She kept it simple with a printed pattern shirt that matched her bag and a simple white skirt.
Another lady who stunned was Kelly Brook (left). Her white, Greek goddess-inspired dress was fantastic and brightened the black carpet.
The event as a whole seemed great, and it’s wonderful that people got the opportunity to dress up and celebrate something important to us all: fashion.
