Best looks from The Brits

The Brit Awards offers the cream of the British music industry the chance to get dressed up and generally let their hair down whilst enjoying the copious amounts of hospitality (ahem!) on offer. The latest ceremony has been totally overshadowed by Madonna, an Armani cape and a pretty spectacular fall, but on the fashion front it was a certain Miss Paloma Faith who took all the plaudits.

Paloma was awarded a much deserved Best Female Singer award on the night, and wore three showstopping looks, including Armani Prive and Dolce and Gabbana. She looked every inch the star, even when performing in a rainstorm. I’ve been a fan of Paloma since day one, and adore her style, she was the only person who could do the Olympic torch relay in 6 inch red heels. She goes from strength to strength and is totally unique, a real one off.

Paloma, Joss and Ellie light up Hootenanny

My traditional end to a year, now that we have a small child, is the same every year. We go out early, to dine or visit family, and then get back home, pour the fizz and settle down to the glamour and entertainment that is Jools Holland’s Hootenanny. As I have said, it is traditional!

This year was a vintage episode in both the glamour and the music stakes, with Paloma Faith being my star turn, especially when she turned in a tongue in cheek performance of ‘River Deep Mountain Eye’ complete with Tina Turner style dance moves and backing singers. Her ruby glitter dress was just gorgeous and so appropriate for a sparkling night of music and fashion.

Joss Stone returned to remind us what an amazing soul voice she has, and also opted for the slinkiest of glamour in beaded sheath dresses, although her trademark hippie bare feet were still part of the look.

And then there was Ellie Goulding, one of my fave singers at present. She opted for a cool androgynous tuxedo look, but added a showstopping chainmail vest to the mix to add to the wow factor.

And my own New Year’s outfit? Well, it was less shimmering than Joss’s, longer than Paloma’s and more girlie than Ellie’s, but I was still pretty pleased with it. It was made up from Christmas pressies from the hubby, and bridesmaids shoes I last wore four years ago and suddenly rediscovered.

Happy New Year – here’s to a great 2015.

 

 

 

 

Get the best looks from the Q Awards with Boohoo

Last night saw the Q Awards, with some of the biggest names in music gathering to support the great and good as they collected hard earned awards. Robbie Williams, Jake Bugg and one of my 90s faves, Suede, were all at the event, but as with any awards ceremony, what I was really interested in was the fashion on show.

Girl of the moment Ellie Goulding was on hand in a beautiful Temperley London dress. Although I profess boredom with the sheer skirts, I like this one, which is a litte like a cocktails style with an 80s style netting. Maybe it was the fact it had a little skirt underneath than a pair of big knickers that made me fall in love with this dress.

Another total hit was the ever-lovely Sophie Ellis Bextor in her beloved vintage. She was a vision in tulle and colour, a modern day Audrey who is never less than beautifully dressed.

The final look I loved was Laura Whitmore, who was wrapped for a cold night in a gorgeous faux fur, an item that is now a mainstay of any winter wardrobe.

Boohoo has a fabulous range this season, and whether you are inspired by Ellie’s sheer style, Sophie’s vintage elegance, or Laura’s rock and roll fur, you will find it all on the Boohoo website.
