I haven’t done a Frock It post for aaagggeeesss, so with the recent glut of awards ceremonies, it seemed like the perfect time to resurrect my celeb fashion series.
Overall, I was disappointed with the fashion at the BAFTAs: with a few exceptions, it all just seemed a bit dull. The Grammys on the other hand, were the perfect fodder for a Frock It post, so without further ado, let’s go!
I’m always interested to see what ‘women of a certain age’ wear on the red carpet, and I thought Julie Walters looked amazing, clearly proving that the older generation don’t need to steer clear of head to toe sequins, in this silver dress. Fabulous!
Imelda Staunton chose this green dress, which I didn’t like at all – it reminded me, both in colour and style, of 80s bridesmaids dresses.
Over at the Grammys, Jane Fonda managed to look pretty good in this shiny green catsuit. Not my favourite fashion moment of the evening, but hey, considering she’s 77, hats off to her, I say! Not that keen on the bouffy
wig hair, though.
Leave it to Madonna to lower the tone, as ever. Don’t get me wrong, I think she looks amazing for 56, but is this really an appropriate outfit for an awards ceremony? Not in my book, and particularly not when she felt the need to do this …
Ewwww. Just … eewwww.
Moving swiftly on, I thought that Felicity Jones looked lovely at the BAFTAs in this unusual black and lilac dress. Though I do wish the fashion for overlong skirts would go away – I really think that having your skirt dragging along the floor makes dresses look far less elegant than they actually are.
This was my very favourite dress of the Grammys – singer Ariana Grande in Versace. Silver and white is always a good combination, and I love her satin shoes and pretty clutch bag, too.
Actress Romola Garai chose quite an unusual look for an evening event, but I loved the bright colour combination and particularly the shoes.
Now let’s move onto some of the looks I didn’t like so much …
Kim Kardashian wore what looks like a blingy gold dressing gown. Strange.
Jenna Coleman chose a dress with a strange cutout that looked like it had been refashioned from a pair of curtains similar to pair my granny had in the mid-80s.
Rihanna wore this. I am rendered almost speechless by it. It puts me in mind of one of those knitted toilet roll holder dolls that people had when I was a child.
Actress Laura Haddock wore this dress, which is fairly innocuous as far as the style goes. However, the colour made me think of greying underwear that has seen better days and been through the washing machine too many times, which was a bit of a shame.
And the prize for the most ridiculous outfit of the evening goes to Pharrell Williams’ wife (sorry, don’t know her name) who decided that a tracksuit style onesie was appropriate attire for a red carpet. Oh dear.
Oh, I do love an Awards Ceremony, don’t you?
