2010 British Fashion Awards

Victoria Beckham was uber-chic at the British Fashion Awards, held at London’s Savoy Hotel, in a long black gown of her own design. The super-star, who was flying solo at the event, lost out on the Designer Brand gong, but enjoyed the evening nonetheless, rubbing shoulders with Samantha Cameron, who has just joined the British Fashion Council as an advisor for London Fashion Week as of next February. The PM’s wife, who recently gave birth to daughter Florence, looked fantastic in a waist-cinching Osman Yousefzada gown.

Naomi Campbell was stunning at the British Fashion Awards in a carpet-sweeping gown by Alexander McQuuen. The supermodel was awarded the Special Recognition gong at the ceremony, paid homage to the late designer, and thanked the label’s current creative director, Sarah Burton, for making not one but two dresses for her to choose from for the evening. On stage Naomi also thanked her mother, Valerie Campbell, and her partner, Vladimir Doronin, for putting up with a “wild woman”.

A Chanel-clad Alexa Chung was crowned Style Icon of the Year at the British Fashion Awards. The gong, which was the only one to be voted on by the British public, was presented to her by singer Bryan Ferry.

Despite the bitter cold, a host of celebrities were spotted in spring/summer outfits, including Thandie Newton who teamed a pretty printed Peter Pilotto frock with super-strappy sandals by Nicholas Kirkwood (who picked up the Accessory Designer of the Year award).

German supermodel Claudia Schiffer rocked an asymmetrical cream, bronze and navy frock by London-based designer Mary Katrantzou. Opaque black leggings and snug black booties helped her to brave the wintery weather in style.

Emma Roberts showed a surprising bit of skin in a flirty little Julien MacDonald frock. She kept the short length from looking too scandalous with opauq black tights and black peep-toe ankle booties.

Calvin Klein spokesmodel Lara Stone slipped into a starkly minimalist little white sheath and black strappy sandals. It would have been nice to see her command the red carpet in an over-the-top ballgown, but she looked fantastic all the same.

Gilrs Aloud songstress Kimberley Walsh was pretty in a tulip-shaped frock in stand-out gold.

Daisy Lowe chose a dramatic black gown by Elie Saab and a matching Gothic-style clutch by Pauric Sweeney for the British Fashion Awards, where she caught up with A-list pals Alexa Chung and Alice Dellal.

Kelly Brook probably felt a night has been wasted if she hasn’t turned some heads. It’s safe to say this over-the-top corseted Suzie Turner dress did the trick, especially paired with those Jimmy Choo cage heels.

You may not recognise model Lily Cole because she’s had a hair makeover. The leggy lady has gone from flame red to chocolate brown and looked super-sexy at the event in a Julien Macdonald dress.

Professional ballroom dancer Kristina Rhianoff opted to wear a whimsical feathered strapless dress that might have been nabbed from the Dancing With the Stars wardrobe department.

Erin O’Connor looked retro chic in this lovely print chiffon cocktail dress. She also showed off a classic French twist.


Kelly Brook & Lily Cole : ‘Swanky’ Dior Party

Decked out and dolled up, Kelly Brook was spotted out in London, England on Thursday (November 25).

The British beauty donned a feathery dress and heels as she stopped by to hobnob amongst the guests at a swanky Dior party at Claridges Hotel.

Lily Cole also showed up in black, wearing a stylish shirt dress over leggings and a top with inky nails and sparkly gold clutch bag for a sophisticated look.

The model seemed desperate to show off the high-brow skin art too, going bare footed in bright orange sequin stilettos despite the freezing temperatures.

Kelly Brook : Hot In ’30’

Celebrating her 31st birthday, Kelly Brook was spotted out and about in London, England last night (November 23).

The birthday girl was joined by Thom Evans, a Scottish rugby player, as she meandered around the English capitol in a charcoal grey dress with black accents and some funky heels.

Ms. Brook hit up the Dorchester for dinner before heading out to Mahiki nightclub. She returned to the Mayfair Hotel in the wee hours.

With her tight black dress, Kelly Brook was clearly aiming to showed off her svelte figure as she arrived at the Prince’s Trust Rock Gala 2010.

But instead of wowing fans with her stunning curves, which she has become famous for during her career, Brook’s outfit had the opposite effect – instead drawing attention to her apparent weight loss.

The 30-year-old model looked thinner than ever in the black velvet minidress, which highlighted her incredibly tiny waist.

2010 Pride of Britain Awards

Nicola Roberts went screen siren chic at the Pride of Britain Awards in a stunning peach hued William Tempest wiggle dress with side ruching, while Girls Aloud pal Cheryl Cole went for a long black cocktail gown accessorised with Garrard jewels and tousled up-do. Both ladies get the thumbs up for red carpet glamour from us!

X Factor judge Dannii Minogue posed for pictures with fans on the red carpet at the Pride of Britain Awards. Working a strapless black maxi-dress from her own label Project D teamed with a super chunky statement necklace by Mawi, Ms Minogue is one lady who knows how to make an entrance!

Trend alert! Emma Bunton teamed a lace dress with leather gloves and finished the look with a crisp black cape. Perfect! More …

Kelly Brook : Cosmopolitan ‘Ultimate’ Bash !

Stepping out for an exciting evening, Kelly Brook was spotted at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards in London last night (November 2).

The British model gave the paparazzi a little flash as she hopped into her car along with 22-year-old comedian Jack Whitehall.

Kelly kept her famous assets covered up wearing Azzedine Alaia short sleeved dress. This figure defining burgundy sleeveless dress is incredibly rich in colour and texture.

Kelly Brook : Skinnier By The Day

She’s not in London very often these days, but when Kelly Brook arrives she certainly knows how to steal the show.

The model turned up to the Flashdance the Musical Gala Night in London yesterday evening oozing old Hollywood glamour with curled hair, bright red nails and a faux-fur coat.

While she dazzled in a one-shouldered grey dress, Kelly’s upper body – particular her arms and shoulders – looked very slender.

Kelly’s jutting bones are a far cry from her buxom figure a year ago and it seems all those months in LA may have rubbed off on her.

Kelly attended the after-party with Katie Price’s good friends Gary Cockerill and Phil Turner, and the trio left together in a cab.

Kelly Brook : ‘Curvy’ Fashion Model

She’s got the poise and height, but there’s something not quite right about these models – they have curves.

Beneath the outlandish stage make-up is tabloid favourite Kelly Brook.

She proved that size zero isn’t the only figure that looks good as they paraded down the runway at Giles Deacon last night.

Kelly joined Amber Le Bon and Agyness Deyn on the runway, showing the British designer’s collection of curve-enhancing floral dresses.

Until this year Deacon has been showing at the grande dame of fashion weeks in Paris.

But with his return to London, the down-to-earth northerner has obviously decided to go for a more British feel to his show.
