Thursday: International Fashion

Awards? Nah Fashion!

So the award season is in full flow and it was both the BAFTAs in the UK and Grammys in LA on Sunday. To most people the awards shows are generally about, well the awards, however we all know that the stars dress to impress and we are not complaining!


Even though Les Miserables won the most awards, the night definitely belonged to Argo, which surprisingly won Best Film and Best Director for Ben Affleck (see we do know our stuff!). Now let’s get to the most important news… the fashion, which seemed to be more conservative this year, especially when compared to the Grammys. Our best dressed has to go to a past New York Moves cover girl Amy Adams, who wore a stunning Elie Saab number. It was both revelling yet sophisticated due to the combination of the lace and the elegant train. Catch Amy in Man of Steel, which is out later this year.    

In contrast Marion Cotillard wore a bright yellow Dior gown. We love the colour as it complements Marion’s complexion and hair; however we are not too sure on the cut out at the thigh!

We can not forget the smartly dressed men, one whom has graced our cover and won Best Supporting Actor for Django Unchanged; Christopher Waltz who wore a classic black suit and bow tie. 




So while the film industry was being celebrated in the UK the world’s hottest music stars gathered in LA for the Grammys. Apparently the artists were told to dress conservatively, but as we know rules are made to be broken!

We love the Grammys as the stars tend to make more daring choices. Beyonce was bang on trend choosing to wear a monochrome Osman jumpsuit, not your typical red carpet outfit, but if anyone can pull this off it is definitely B!

Rihanna looked stunning in an amazing custom made red Azzedine Alaia gown, with matching red lipstick. Her new hair style definitely takes us back to her early days of ‘Pon De Reply’. The only fault we can find is the person she chooses to have on her arm.

Jennifer Lopez had taken inspiration from Angie Jolie, by choosing to wear a high thigh split asymmetric dress by Antony Vaccarello, no doubt there will be a twitter page created in honour of her leg! The choice of accessories and shoes complement the dress giving a strong powerful feel to overall look.

Kelly Rowland definitely did not read the memo as she chose to wear a revelling Georges Chakra black gown that had cut out detailing, a brave choice which lucky paid off.  

Unfortunately there has to be a worst dressed which goes to Florence Welch. We do love Florence, however she made an odd choice in a Givenchy haute couture dress the resembled a dragon. 



Even with the dress code the stars tried to push the boundaries; however we doubt that the choices made will make any lasting impressions.
