Top ten red carpet awards dresses for 2011: Oscars, Baftas, Grammys and Golden Globes

By Andrea Petrou on April 19th, 2011

It may not be the end of the year, or in anticipation for the next awards event, but let’s be honest, we really don’t need an excuse to put together a list of red carpet award dresses.
This year an abundance of A-listers have turned up to celebrate key red carpet award events including the BAFTAs, Oscars, Golden Globes and of course the Grammys. Each have chosen a frock, which they hope sets them apart from the rest, and while many did that, there, in our eyes can only be a top ten.
First up in our top ten is Angelina Jolie who looked stunning in a green sleeved Versace  dress at the Golden Globes. Also sporting a best dress at this event was Christina Hendricks who showed off those enviable curves in a red frock.
Over at the Oscars, we had three ladies who really wowed. First up was Michelle Williams who went for a white dress with on trend beading and capped sleeves. She’s followed here by Helena Bonham Carter for her sheer eccentric black outfit, which she teamed up with glasses. Also at this awards event is the lovely Natalie Portman who showed off her baby bump in a cute scoop neck purple frock.
Rihanna’s white and sheer Jean Paul Gaultier frock at the Grammys also gets a mention, while Jessie J’s BRIT playsuit also comes in top here.

Emma Watson’s one shoulder lace frock at the BAFTAs gets in too as does Amy Adam’s  gold strappy number.

Designer spotlight: Chanel through the ages

By Andrea Petrou on April 6th, 2011

We couldn’t do a designer spotlight series without including Chanel, after all this iconic fashion house has bought us a great deal of style joy over the past century.
The design house was the first to bring chic elegance into the mainstream and combine different fabrics including fur, tweeds and on-trend hats.

And this is really what attracted celebrities right through the 50s and 60s to now to wear them. Under Karl Lagerfeld’s current designs, Chanel has become alot more funky – think mini dresses, luxe fabrics and tiered styles, yet that elegance still remains. Fans now include the likes of Lily Allen, Emma Watson and Sarah Jessica Parker, just to name a few.

See the gallery below for styles ranging all the way back to the early 1900s to today, as well as celebrity fans.

Emma Watson has an “adventurous” side to her style

By Andrea Petrou on March 14th, 2011

Emma Watson has an “adventurous” side to her style.

The ‘Harry Potter’ actress has teamed up with designer Alberta Ferretti for new eco-clothing line All Pure Threads and believes the collection reflects her own personal style.

She said: “My style’s definitely evolved. I usually go for classic, simple things, but then I have this adventurous side.

“I’m always thinking and experimenting, and I make conscious decisions to try and support new talent and ethical fashion.”

Emma loves designing her own collection because she enjoys being in control, and also sees it as another outlet for her creativity.

She told Britain’s InStyle magazine: “I love having control. My job as an actress is to bring to life another person’s vision, but with clothes, I can express my own creativity.

“And I wanted to be able to buy fashion knowing it’s not harming the person who made it or the environment.

“I’ve always been involved in art and I love fashion – it’s just something I really enjoy.”

Emma Watson’s new fashion range for Alberta Ferretti inspired by Jane Birkin.

By Andrea Petrou on March 7th, 2011

Emma Watson’s new fashion range for Alberta Ferretti was inspired by Jane Birkin.

The ‘Harry Potter’ actress – who recently released her third and final set of designs for ethical clothing brand People Tree – has worked with the designer on a “green” capsule collection and Alberta revealed 64-year-old actress-and-singer Jane was influential when Emma was working on the eco-friendly designs.

She said: “Emma had a Jane-Birkin-in-the-70s image in mind.”

Alberta also revealed she has admired Emma for some time and is impressed with her dedication to green issues.

She told WWD: “I’m grateful Emma accepted this creative partnership that can contribute to fashion and to the health of the planet.

“She’s an actress I’ve followed since her early days. I like her freshness, her spontaneity and simplicity. She is intelligent, with a strong personality, a young, modern girl of today but aware of social issues at the same time and very rigorous. This is a moment that demands strong attention to these issues and we can help in communicating them.”

Emma – who has worked on five pieces including two dresses, a shirt, a long skirt and a pair of denim shorts for her line called Pure Threads – spoke about her devotion to the ethical clothing cause and said she is delighted that Alberta has gotten involved.

She said: “I’m pleased that a luxury brand such as Alberta Ferretti has decided to create ecological clothes. I believe this is a big step forward for all of the international fashion industry, but also an important step for an increased sensitivity to the problem of ecology.

Spotted in London: Paloma Faith, Emma Watson and more

It’s pre-awards ceremonies frenzy at the moment. As the music industry’s brightest celebrate the impending Grammys in Los Angeles, some of Britain’s stars of small and silver screen went out to party in London’s Mayfair to celebrate the upcoming BAFTA awards, one of Britain’s most important award ceremonies in the entertainment industry.

Harry Potter actress Emma Watson looked dainty and pixie-ish in a simplistic navy silk button-up dress, which set off her new cropped hair and simple make-up perfectly. Also spotted leaving the event was film’s new wondergirl Hailee Steinfield, who’s been wowing critics with her performance in the new western blockbuster True Grit. We can’t comment on her acting, but we can certainly comment on her dress – a beautiful little black dress with white origami detail on the sleeve. How depressing that someone so much younger than us should dress so much better than us too.

Fashion car-crash/genius Paloma Faith was also there for the swanky party in Mark’s Club, looking typically mental/amazing as usual in a leopardprint coat, floor-skimming red fringed skirt and My Fair Lady-esque hat. It’s always a pleasure seeing what she’ll wear out next.

Meanwhile, just down the road, opera babe Catherine Jenkins was spotted leaving Mahiki with her rugby boyf Gethin Jones, looking a bit like Audrey Hepburn in a simple black skater dress which showed off her enviable figure perfectly.  Saturdays’ singer Rochelle was also seen outside the Mayfair Hotel for Aston Merrigold’s birthday casually flaunting a quilted Chanel bag and little black dress. Lucky thing.

To see the stars that were papped in London’s fanciest joints yesterday, check out the gallery above.
