Last week saw Elton John & David Furnish’s annual White Tie and Tiara Ball, held to raise money for their AIDS Foundation. And also a opportunity for a whole bunch of celebs – A List right through to Z list – to put on their glad rags.
Great fodder for this week’s Frock It – and there were, as ever, some who got it less right than others.
My very favourite dress – and also possibly my favourite dress since the Frock It meme started – was worn by Liz Hurley, who attended with her latest squeeze, the Australian cricketer Shane Warne (who is looking as though he’s had some right dodgy facial work done if you ask me).
I absolutely love this dress, it’s the sort of dress I’d like to wear if I ever lost about 10 stone and got invited to the White Tie & Tiara Ball (very unlikely, both scenarios, let’s be honest).
And look at the back, too …
Anyway, moving on, Holly Valance was also looking rather nice – a lot better than she was at the Monaco Grand Prix a couple of weeks ago, in fact.
The revolting Fergie was also there – God knows why – I thought she was busy starring in her vile reality show in the States (could any American readers enlighten me as to whether she is actually liked in America, because nobody has a good word to say about her here, unsurprisingly.).
Eugenie looks quite nice in her red – very similar to the dress she wore at Ascot last week, I thought; and Beatrice’s lace frock, although not rocking my boat particularly, is considerably nicer than a lot of the outfits she’s worn recently. Fergie herself looks horrible, really don’t like the net sleeves etc – and quite an unsuitable colour for a summer ball, in my opinion.
Another strange one, here – Alexa Chung:
I’ll be honest, I’m not quite sure who Alexa Chung is, or indeed, what she does. I do know, however, that Mulberry named a handbag after her. I’m normally quite a fan of spots, but I really don’t like the style of this dress, and as for matching it with what looks like a pair of red slippers, I wonder if she got dressed in the dark? Very odd.
And lastly this week, Anne Hathaway, whose style I normally really like, but I’m afraid I can’t say the same of this dress.
Don’t like the colours, don’t like the neckline – FAR too low, and don’t like the ribbons on the front. It’s also a good few inches too long. Sorry, Anne.
Right, that’s it for this week, but there’s more Frock It over at Mid 30s Life.
