Awards season is in full swing! We don’t think we’re alone when we say that we’ve been tuned into E! news on constant rotation, catching up with all the winners, losers and of course, the frocks that everyone is talking about.
It’s not really our style to critique the looks we didn’t like so much (RIP the silver tongue of Fashion Police’s warden Joan Rivers), but we are all for championing the best looks from the red carpet. This season is all about colour, glitter and flowing full-lengths…let’s get into it!
THE GRAMMY’S 2016
The musical event of the year, the Grammy’s always sees it’s fair share of controversial and creative outfits. No huge dramas to be had this year unfortunately, but it’s fair to say that everybody was talking about Lady Gaga’s stunning homage to David Bowie, complete with flame-red locks. We love the fashion-forward retro shades of Florence Welch and Lianne La Havas gowns, but we have to say that our fave look was presenter Kaley Cuoco – the ‘Big Bang Theory’ star looked fun and effortless in a quirky playsuit that we’re coveting for our own wardrobe (if only our abs looked that good)
THE BAFTAS 2016
For timeless glamour and classy hemlines, the BAFTA’s a ceremony to rely on. Stars often look chic but as lovers of the one-off, we’re sometimes left feeling a little uninspired. Not this year – stars like Isla Fisher and Gemma Chan managed to subvert the classic shades of black, white and silver with a hint of Hollywood screen siren. Kudos also to Cate Blanchett in a stunning Alexander McQueen, but it was breakout star Bel Powley who really caught our eye – the glitzy Gucci rainbow gown with gold platforms was super-70s and totally befitting of her role in 2015’s excellent ‘The Diary Of A Teenage Girl’.
ELLE STYLE AWARDS 2016
Oh Elle, an awards ceremony after our own heart! Dedicated to inspirational women, we’d certainly love to gatecrash this party and get some serious girlcrush vibes underway. The informal sense of fun is reflected on the red carpet – models Suki Waterhouse and Karlie Kloss both went for traditional styles with a hint of youthfullness in the neckline. We love Paloma’s fluffy jumper, but we’re also pretty obsessed with Kate Moss’s younger sister Lottie and her barely-there tinfoil number that brings back some amazing 90s memories. We hope there was a big fur coat just out of shot…
All of those outfits and we still have the Brits and the Oscars to go! Tweet us @judysvintagefair to tell us your fave, our even show us your own red-carpet look…we’d love to share our favourites!
