Victoria Beckham thrilled to win Designer Brand of Year at British Fashion Awards

By shinychris on December 5th, 2011

Victoria Beckham at the British Fashion Awards at The Savoy in London - 28 November 2011

Victoria Beckham was “overwhelmed” to win Designer Brand of the Year at the British Fashion Awards.

The former Spice Girls star was thrilled to win the prestigious accolade with her eponymous label and was so shocked by the prize, she “lost the ability” to articulate herself.

She said: “I have to say I was not expecting to win and I was quite overwhelmed.

“I’ve never felt my heart beating so fast. I lost the ability to think or speak – my vocabulary just went out the window. It means so much to me.

“I had the most phenomenal team of people and I was up there on behalf of all of us and I really didn’t want to forget anyone. My mind was completely blank.”

While Victoria has won critical acclaim for her collection, she insists she has never worried about “proving” herself to other people, though she is very proud of her accomplishments.

She added in an interview with Britain’s HELLO! magazine: “People say to me, ‘Oh you’ve proved yourself to everybody…’ But that was never why I did this.

“I had a lot to prove to myself. I’m proud of myself. I’m proud of my team.”

Michelle Keegan was crowned soap’s Sexiest Female for the third year running at tonight’s (26.09.11) Inside Soap Awards.

The Coronation Street actress – who plays Tina McIntyre in the ITV1 soap – scooped the prize during the ceremony at exclusive London venue Gilgamesh and admitted she was stunned by the news.

Michelle – who is engaged to The Wanted star Max George said: “I genuinely didn’t think I would win again. I think the people who vote clearly don’t see me in my slobs on a daily basis. I think it’s Tina they like anyway, not me. Max better have voted for me otherwise I’ll kill him!”

Coronation Street won the Outstanding Achievement award for the show’s 50th anniversary week, which saw the tram crash and live episode and actor Chris Fountain said it was very well deserved.

Chris – who plays Tommy Duckworth – said: “I think it’s about time to be honest. That storyline was phenomenal and it hasn’t been recognised at any other awards ceremonies. I’m just proud to be part of it.”

However, the big winner of the night was ‘EastEnders’ as the BBC One show took home five awards, including Best Soap.

Jessie Wallace – who plays Kat Moon – was named Best actress while Maisie smith (Tiffany Butcher) scooped the prize for Best Young Actor.

Other winners included ‘Emmerdale’ star Danny Miller, who was named Best Actor and Sexiest male Danny Mac.

Inside Soap magazine’s editor Steven Murphy said: “Huge congratulations to all of this year’s winners, who thoroughly deserve their Awards. It’s been a fantastic year for British soaps, and I look forward to another exciting and dramatic 12 months ahead.”

Kate Moss and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley sparkle at Thirties themed Moët & Chandon Etoile Awards

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on September 20th, 2011

For some one integral part of London Fashion Week is the parties, for others it is a bonus. Yesterday the first Moët & Chandon Etoile Awards took place at London Park Lane for a Thirties-themed party.

On a night of vintage glamour renowned photographer Mario Testino was honoured for his contribution to culture. Other high profile guests included Kate Moss, her hubby Jamie Hince, a sultry looking Sienna Miller, a stunning Rosie Huntington-Whiteley – who stole the spotlight in a 1930’s style dress with bright red lips, Georgia May Jagger and Peaches Geldof.

Spotted at the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards: Christina Hendricks, Gwyneth Paltrow and more

By emilyborrett on September 19th, 2011

<i>Mad Men</i> star Christina Hendricks showed off her killer curves in a classic Hollywood silver silk gown with beautiful crystal detailing

Picture 1 of 9

Fashion Week may be over for the Yanks, with the fun having crossed over the pond to Laaahn-dahn, but that doesn’t mean that there’s nothing going on in the States, oh no – in fact, while we were all poring over the latest Henry Holland collection on the Vogue site last night, apparently a little something called the Emmy Awards was going on..

All the long-standing Hollywood superstars were there as well as the young talent: I don’t know if Lea Michele was trying to copy Kate Winslet, who’s clearly been in the red-carpet game for a long time, or what, but the young Glee actress turned up smouldering  in a simple scarlet evening dress that was actually very similar to Kate’s Emmy dress. We hope they hit each other with their handbags later in the evening.

Another Glee star in attendance was the adorable Jayma Mays, who was definitely channelling a ballerina vibe in her long ruffled and tiered sugar-pink gown which worked perfectly with her strawberry-blonde hair and berry lips. Following suit with a romantic, feminine look was Heidi Klum with her hubby Seal, showing off a crazy post-summer tan in a statement ruffled nude cocktail dress.

Opting for a more classic Hollywood vibe (it is the Emmys, after all) was the beautiful Christina Hendricks, who, fresh from causing a stir with her impressive cleavage at the première of I Don’t Know How She Does It last week, smouldered last night in an incredible slit-skirt silver evening gown covered in crystalline embellishments for a look reminiscent of old movie stars like Jean Harlow. We love. To be honest, we’re so obsessed with the woman that we might go dye our hair red and eat a tub of Ben & Jerry’s right now.

Also taking the old Hollywood fashion path was Gwyneth Paltrow, who showed off her enviably tight abs in a floor-sweeping black beaded dress with a cutout at the midriff. Pretty much all we need to say about that is that Gwynnie looked in-cred-i-ble.

To see who we spotted at the Emmy Awards yesterday, and what the stars were wearing, check out the gallery above.

British TV Choice Awards red carpet highlights

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on September 14th, 2011

While we wait for Fashion Week to roll into London town with its mix of models, bloggers, celebrities and journalists running around the city in heels (or will it be flats this year?) we’ve decided to take a closer look at last nights British TV Choice Awards. The awards are nothing like the Emmy’s or even the Razzies, but it does bring out the soap celebs who are usually seen on a very small screen near you.

This year Doctor Who’s Karen Gillian was our favourite – despite her looking quite moody – in a crystal embellished nude-dress and smokey eyes. As far as highlights go there weren’t too many… Claire from Steps wore a 50’s style dress but looked more like a wicked witch than Mad Men-esque. Speaking of Mad Men, we love – LOVE – Christina Hendricks and while Chloe Simms might have been trying to copy Hendrick’s recent décolletage last night she just ended up looking like the Jordan wannabe she is.

Check out the gallery below for some more red carpet choices.

Spotted at the GQ Men of the Year Awards: Lara Stone, Emma Watson and Daisy Lowe

By emilyborrett on September 7th, 2011

Emma Watson went for a tough/girlie look in a patent biker jacket with a cute full-skirted tartan dress. Such an adorable look

Picture 1 of 11

As well as the Mercury Music Awards, last night every smooth tuxedo’d hair gelled male celebrity in the world was present for the GQ Men of the Year Awards in London. GQ may be a magazine for men written by men, but last night at the awards it was all about the girls in attendance, who outshone the boys by miles.

The very adorable Emma Watson made an appearance to remind us exactly why she’s one of our favourite fashion icons in a full-skirted tartan dress (yes, I know it sounds disgusting but in reality it wasn’t) and a patent biker jacket and it worked so, so well. Meanwhile, the beautiful Miss Lara Stone looked leggy and bronzed in a bright tangerine mini to show off her post-summer golden glow.

The Agent Provocateur model Daisy Lowe showed up with boyfriend Matt Smith on her arm looking incredibly dramatic and gothic in a floor-length lace fishtail gown with chocolately dark hair and red lipstick. Also favouring black dresses were Pixie Lott in a one-shouldered silk cocktail dress, Jameela Jamil wore a black gown with a long chiffon train and Kylie Minogue went for an uber-sexy look in a fitted corset dress.

We’re glad to say that Leona Lewis has FINALLY stopped trying to reinvent herself as the Lady Gaga of R&B in ridiculous outfits, and yesterday looked really pretty and girl-next-door-ish in a white fringed maxi dress with scarlet lips and a red clutch purse.

Check out who wore what to the GQ Men of the Year Awards in the gallery above.

Gallery: Barclaycard Mercury Music Awards 2011, including Adele and Katy B

By emilyborrett on September 7th, 2011

Adele looked pretty and elegant in a black lace dress

Picture 1 of 7

Yesterday Barclaycard hosted the Mercury Music Awards at London’s Grosvenor House, and the music talent was out in full force to see who would pick up an award.

Everyone’s favourite female singer, Adele, worked her classic look of black vintage glamour in a lace collared cocktail dress with a sweeping up-do and heels. We seriously think that Adele might be one of our new favourite women ever – no one works an LBD like she does. Also working a similar look was Lauren Laverne in a cute cape-sleeved black shift dress – j’adore.

Miss Dynamite looked sexy in a 70s glamourpuss way in a ruched black clinging gown with what suspiciously looked like Nicholas Kirkwood heels – oooooh. She’s come such a long way from tracksuits and scraped-back hair, no?

Iconic female rocker PJ Harvey opted for an unusual draped white gown with dramatic smokey eye-makeup and an unusual spiky hair fascinator. We love PJ Harvey but we can’t work out if we equally love her outfit. Write YES or NO on the back of a postcard, readers… Meanwhile, Katy B showed off her hourglass figure in a cool stretchy jersey graphic-printed dress and left her red ringlets loose.

Check out the gallery above to see who we spotted at the Mercury Music Awards.

Spotted at the Teen Choice Awards: Taylor Swift, Rachel Bilson and Selena Gomez

Taylor Swift looked sweet and girlish as usual in a Marilyn Monroe-style white sundress

Picture 1 of 10

This weekend it was the teenybopper’s Oscar night as the Teen Choice Awards took place in California. All the usual teenage Disney stars and popstrels were there, along with a few more grown-up faces.

Taylor Swift, our favourite angel-faced country-pop singer, had a great weekend as she walked away with the Ultimate Choice award along with five others, including Favourite Female Artist and Favourite Country Artist. She looked sweet and girlish in a full-skirted white halternecked dress that was more than a little bit Marilyn Monroe.

Gossip Girl‘s Blake Lively looked absolutely incredible in an unusual orange leather tailored dress that showed off her perfect figure (we hate her, we hate her, we hate her). She also took away the award for TV’s best dramatic TV actress.

The Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie didn’t take away any awards, though she gets a style award from us for her cool and youthful star-printed minidress. Neither did the Kardashians, though they were all out in force with their fiercest heels and sexiest dresses. Kim K looked amazing in a white-and-black cocktail dress with a feathered skirt.

Disney actress Selena Gomez, who is Justin Bieber’s current squeeze, looked pretty and sophisticated in a sexy gold satin cocktail dress with a draped chiffon train. We also loved Rachel Bilson’s look, who opted for a sweet and romantic look in a white ruffled Chloe dress.

Check out our gallery to see the celebrities we’ve mentioned above, along with plenty others.

Shiny’s new fashion crush: Chloe Moretz

By Andrea Petrou on December 16th, 2010

By Emily Borrett.

There seems to be an emergence of mini-talents taking over the world at the moment – Justin Beiber is experiencing an outbreak of hysteria reminiscent of the rise of the Beatles in the 1960s, Tavi Gevinson is in the front row for every fashion show and Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” is officially the catchiest song in the world. But today we want to talk about Chloe Moretz, the tiny actress who’s proving to be one of 2010’s hottest talents, having risen to fame as the potty-mouthed Hit Girl in superhero film Kick-Ass.

And we love her look. Is this how every thirteen year old girl should dress? Probably. She’s adorable – all wide, kittenish eyes, heart-shaped face and bobbed vintage curls, stepping out to events and awards ceremonies wearing sweet, neat little tunic dresses, opaque tights and mary-jane heels. (Apparently her mum is very particular about what the tween can and can’t wear out because she’s so young, but the mary janes have the parental seal of approval.) She is like a little doll that we want to tuck under our arm and dress up.

Whether you’re 13 or 30, Chloe’s rocking a timeless, classic style that works whatever age you are. If Karl Lagerfeld’s letting her wear his designs, then you know she’s probably one to watch. Check out the gallery below for our favourite Chloe Moretz fashion moments, and where you can get similar pieces.

Leaving a London performance of "The Nutcracker" yesterday, looking doll-like in a sweet British peacoat and magenta shift dress.

British Fashion Awards - Red Carpet Arrivals

Celebrities, models and fashion designers were out in their droves last night to celebrate the 25th annual British Fashion Awards.

The event, which we we’ve been excited about since we reported the shortlist a few weeks ago, took place in London’s Royal Courts of Justice and this year played host to more British designers than ever before.

As we would expect, it was also attended by Kate Moss, Victoria Beckham and Claudia Schiffer as well as one of our favourite designers Matthew Williamson.

There was also happiness from Grace Coddington who was given the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator and Katie Hillier was crowned Accessory Designer of the Year.

We also think a huge congratulations are in order for Burberry, which won Designer Brand of the year and Christopher Bailey who was awarded British Designer of the Year.

During his acceptance speech, Bailey also revealed that Burberry would display creations during February’s London Fashion Week: “London is our home and our global headquarters, and we are thrilled to be showing again in this, our magnificent and creative city,” he said.

From Catwalk Queen’s Isabelle...

Much excitement at the MTV Movie Awards last night, with a bewinged Sacha Baron Cohen landing on Eminem’s lap causing an almighty furore from the rapper and his entourage. In the more genteel world of fashion there were plenty of well-dressed stars at the bash.

Rumer Willis
sported an appliqué-ed green frock which complemented her hair, and Hills star Audrina Partridge wore a shimmering coral gown. Sienna Miller combined the two, in a green sparkling outfit from her Twenty8Twelve label. Cameron Diaz, although casually dressed, looked stunning in a leopard print top, jeans and violet boots.

White the stand-out trend on the Oscars red carpet

By Andrea Thatcher on February 24th, 2009

You’d have to have a black and white TV not to notice how many white dresses there were on the red carpet for the 2009 Academy Awards. Of course you can check out all our Oscars coverage here, but we’ve also got a new gallery of all the white dresses. From the positively bridal Penelope Cruz in vintage Balmain to my personal favorite Marisa Tomei in Versace Atelier, you could see a lot of these dresses walking down the aisle. Plus, pre-spring is the perfect time for a white trend to emerge, don’t you think? We know you can’t wait to get all tan and whip out some white. So check out our gallery, below, and tell us which Oscar dress you’d wear in your wedding in this poll on our bridal blog.
