So, the Golden Globe awards came, followed by the SAG Awards and then the Grammys. I had been waiting for what seemed like forever for the Brits to come around and yesterday it finally arrived! I love the Brit awards, (partly because I’m British), but it also has a collection of some of my favourite artists and their outfits! My guess is that most of you tuned in yesterday to watch the Brit Awards including me. I thought that I would dedicate this blog post to highlight some of my favourite outfits from the Brit Awards, including style tips for each outfit on how you can get their looks!
Brit winner Lana Del Rey wore a Chanel dress paired with Jimmy Choo shoes and a stylish fish tail plait. I love Lana’s look, it’s simplistic but has edge.
Style Tip: To get Lana’s look invest in a shirt style dress and a belt, keep the colour simple and pair it with a fish tail, side plait!
Giving a show stopping performance, Taylor Swift made it clear that she ‘knew he was trouble’ (ehem Harry Styles) but Taylor also knows how to rock an outfit! She wore a statement golden belted, floor kissing Elie Saab dress with a pair of simple but effective open toed heels! Swift accessorized with a ring and a plain bangle emphasising her black colour scheme. To break up the all-black effect Taylor added the belt to introduce some colour and sparkle!
Style Tip: To get Taylor's look invest in a statement belt which you can recycle and use on outfits that need some colour and that extra something!
Jessie J wore a slitted bodice, floor-length Versace dress complimented well with some Jimmy Choo shoes! Accessorising basically with golden hoop earrings and a golden belt, Jessie keeps it simple!
Style Tip: Accessorise like Jessie and don’t overdo your accessories!
Little Mix didn’t go home with any Brit awards but they went home with some awesome outfits. (From Left) Perrie rocked her pastel colours in her cute flared dress paired with some white platforms and a rather interesting floral head piece! Jesy wore a Celeb Boutique dress (sporting the S/S trend of black and white stripes), a clutch bag and some high black platforms. Leigh-Anne wore a pure white gown by Aqua, revealing a little more than the other girls! Gorgeous nevertheless Leigh-Anne looked like a goddess with her simple addition of her thick, golden bangle and hoop earrings. Jade wore a shiny, metallic effect dress by Mary Benson, accessorized with a cute bow and some killer heels.
Style Tip: To get Little Mix’s look experiment with clothes! Be daring and choose outfits which wouldn’t necessarily be your first choice! Add a splash of colour like Jade, invest in some pastels like Perrie or go ultra girly like Jesy and Leigh-Ann! A Little Mix must have are some super high heels too so make sure that you’ve got your pair!
Rebecca Ferguson looked classy with her beaded floral patterned frock at the Brits this year, with Chocker style sparkly shoes to add glamour to her outfit. Ferguson nailed S/S trend of slits with her thigh-high slit in her dress.
Style Tip: Buy your Chocker style shoes to give your dress some wow-factor from head to toe.
Known for her quirky personality and quirky style, Paloma Faith’s outfit is bound to receive some mixed reactions! Encrusted with different coloured gems and jewels, Paloma uses that as her source of colour in the mist of her nude colour scheme.
Style Tip: If your style is quirky make sure it’s not too in your face, you want your outfits to receive a reaction but not a common one of disgust or horror! Make sure if your using gems and jewels to grab attention that you have a base of one colour throughout. Paloma uses nude colouring but match the colour to your outfit. This will avoid a crazy flash of colour as we walk by someone while still grabbing their attention!
Emeli Sande wore an all black knee-high dress, paired with simple heels and her famous up-do! Emeli has no accessories which I would have liked to see but she does add a hint of colour with her nail varnish.
Style Tip: If you want Emeli’s look adopt a high neck dress, keep to one colour but use nail art as your source of adding colour.
Catherine Jenkins looks like a marble in this beautiful Stella McCartney dress! Paired with some shiny aqua shoes, Catherine brings colour to the Brits as well as style!
Style Tip: No accessorising needed with an outfit like Catherine’s, let the outfit do the talking!
The Guys – a Brit’s special!
I don’t usually include boys' fashion in my blog but seeing as they’re everyone’s favourite teen boy band I thought I’d give them a special cover! One Direction graced the Brits in dashing suits, designers include Alexander McQueen, Topshop, Asos, Burberry and Kurt Geiger – One Direction certainly pulled it off! Their attire varied from smart to casual with Niall wearing some casual grey trainers while Harry, Zayn, Louis and Liam all wore plain shoes.
Justin Timberlake gave a charming performance to match his charming suit! Timberlake’s suit had a sheer shine to it and a lovely looking, friendly owl embroidered on the left hand of his suit!
Tom Daley, you can’t deny that you smiled as this British Olympian made an appearance at the Brits. Voted the Worlds Sexiest Man, Tom Daley wore a classic smart suit for the occasion.
Robbie Williams gave the classical suit a little makeover with his purple colour scheme!
So, what do you think of the Brits outfits this year? What’s your favourite outfit?
