Are you ready for another red carpet? Yesterday we switched between understated glamour of the BAFTAs and the flesh-flashing Grammys get-ups, and today ELLE Style Awards are rounding out the awards season trifecta with an elegant bunch of Britain's best-dressed. The Geldof girls went for opposite ends of the style spectrum; Pixie in a chic suit and Peaches in a super femme frock. Stella McCartney dressed two of the night's leading ladies with Kate Hudson opting for a lace-inset scarlet gown and cutie Chloë Moretz in her bold monochrome look. Our other fave? Elizabeth Olsen looking very cool thanks to fellow Brit-designer Christopher Kane. Step inside to see it all.
As if yesterday's BAFTA Awards didn't supply enough British style, UK Elle further fuelled our style-stalking appetite by hosting the 2012 Style Awards last night in London. The usual suspects were in attendance (Alexa in Stella McCartney, Poppy in Mary Katrantzou, Pixie in Dolce & Gabbana and Rosie in Antonio Berardi), but there were a few new faces that impressed us with their stellar looks. Tallulah Harlech oozed effortless style whilst Tali Lennox got seriously glam. Take a tour of the best of British fashion inside!
At Monday night's ELLE Style Awards bash, Sophie Ellis Bextor paired mint green shadow with a coral lip which was kooky and cool, but she opted for a more traditional makeup palette for last night's Brit Awards, teaming a shimmering shadow with classic winged eyeliner and red lips. You know how much we love red lips with a red frock so we think this is a winning look. And we love Sophie's ladylike French twist. What do you think of Soph's look? Do you like it?

Well, hellooooooo Miss Super-Slick Watson, don't we look HAWT at the 2011 ELLE Style Awards? Sexing things up from her BAFTAs look the night before, Emma went for a deep part, gelled-down strands and kohl-rimmed eyes at the London bash last night. Also looking super stylish at the par-tay was Helena Christensen who rocked a sultry, glittery eye, prompting us to wholeheartedly say that we WILL wear glitter again (who knew?), Alexa Chung who worked a couple of wavy kinks through her newly-sheared strands, British X Factor judge Cheryl Cole who opted for red on red (Bravo, Chezza), Blake Lively who looked golden and glamorous and Sophie Ellis Bextor, whose palette of mint green shadow and coral lip we found kooky. LOVE.
London played host to Fashion's Night Out this week as British Vogue encouraged you to go out and shop whilst rubbing shoulders with the stars! There were plenty of celebrities out and about lending support to their favourite designers whilst looking very stylish. The biggest parties of the night were held at Stella McCartney, Burberry, Mulberry and Juicy Couture. Click through to see photos from the night.
Goodbye, week of multiple movie premieres! Angelina Jolie’s Salt, Cameron Diaz's Knight and Day and Jessica Biel's The A-Team all had worldwide premieres most days of the week. But I'm not complaining, the more red carpets, the more designer frocks! TV and movie stars also got their geek on at Comic-Con in San Diego, sporting some very non-geeky threads, while Blake Lively provided us with a few hits and misses courtesy of her shapely assets! Wanna see all that and more? Click through to catch up on the Fab week that was.
Isn't she lovely? You know I've always had a soft spot for Sophie Ellis-Bextor, and this latest image of her at The Jacques Townhouse launch party in London is really sealing the deal for me. She's looking particularly adorable in this cheap and chic Topshop lace dress, which I'm now desperate to own. Funnily enough, our very own Sugar Sister Bella bought the red version just the other day and I can safely say it's equally as cute in the flesh. Soph's cleverly mixed in a black slip instead of the plain white which further highlights the pretty lace detail. The peter pan collar and three quarter sleeve add a retro feel which is in tune with the Betty Draper inspiration we're seeing everywhere right now. Get in quick peeps, Topshop online only has a few of these puppies left! Topshop lace dress, approx $78.
Sophie Ellis Bextor wore this gorgeous '60s beehive-style to the opening of Jacques pop-up boutique in London yesterday. It's less slick that the Prada style but a tiny bit more polished than the teased Vogue Italia version and is rather perfect for afternoon tea with the girls. Here, Brad Ngata tells you how to get the look . . .
STEP 1: This beehive-esque look is all about having the right texture to keep the hairstyle current. Use a mousse on washed hair and then blast dry—flip your head over and blast dry again to ensure extra volume that will be long-lasting.
STEP 2: Next, set hair in hot rollers or use a large barrel curling iron. Do NOT brush through the curls.
STEP 3: Separate your hair between your forehead and crown and clip it to the side—this section will be styled last.
I don't usually get bummed about not attending celebrity parties, but this is one soirée I'm genuinely sad I missed. Net-a-Porter celebrated its 10th anniversary this week with a star-studded party held at their brand new offices in London's Westfield White City. Peach bellinis and champagne cruised the crowd whilst the DJ played classic disco tracks. Founder of the eboutique Natalie Massenet made a speech where she thanked everybody in the room (that would be Victoria Beckham, Gemma Arterton and Christopher Bailey, to name a few) and apologised to all the husbands! Click through to see all the par-tay snaps, and don't forget to check out the site for a nostalgic look back at the past ten fashionable years.
Fab's go-to fashion fix, Net-A-Porter celebrated their tenth birthday in London on Wednesday night with a party at their Westfield offices. It was certainly one star-studded bash, where disco music was played while celebs mingled with founder Natalie Massenet. Victoria Beckham—who recently celebrated her 11th wedding anniversary—looked glam in her short dress and nude heels, Sophie Ellis-Bextor opted for a floral maxidress, while Gemma Arterton returned from her time at Paris Fashion Week to attend the do.
