The Best Dressed on the Red Carpet
Rihanna – Grammy Awards
Crop tops and long skirts have to be one of my favourite fashion combinations and I absolutely adore Rihanna’s take on this trend. The powerful pop of orange contrasts beautifully with the billowing layers of textured black, and my eye is immediately drawn to how the shape of Rihanna’s top precisely aligns with her unique under-boob tattoo. This look allows the singer to flaunt her incredibly toned abs and arms, and I particularly love how she has minimally accessorised this striking outfit with a sleek black clutch, gorgeous dangly earrings and simple silver bracelets. With her hair in relaxed curls, Rihanna’s overall look is youthful, on trend and undeniably gorgeous.
Kaley Cuoco- SAG Awards
For me, Kaley’s exquisite dress conjures ethereal imagery. I adore the soft pastel shades and how they compliment her skin tone and blonde hair. I especially love the hint of blue that peeks out from underneath the several layers of pale pink. The soft texture of Kaley’s gown is unbelievably elegant and feminine, and the iridescent accents are unlike anything I’ve seen on a dress before. Always managing an effortlessly beautiful look, her outfits reflect her fun-loving personality and unique sense of style. With tendrils of hair framing her stunning features, and a dress that appears to melt into her flawless skin and incredible figure, Kaley seamlessly glides across the red carpet like a fairy queen of fashion.
Blake Lively – Golden Globe Awards
I may be biased because I’m a big Blake fan, but I absolutely L.O.V.E this dress! The sleek fit perfectly accentuates the actresses stunning hourglass physique, the black velvet is extremely flattering, and the gold straps make her glow like the Hollywood royalty she is. My favourite part of this look are the pockets. They look just big enough for Blake to pop in her phone and lipstick, freeing her hands from the burden of carrying a clutch all night. My eyes are also drawn to the gorgeous green jewelled matching bracelets, the only accessories that this striking dress needs. With her hair swept into an elegant up-do and natural makeup that highlights her incredible cheekbones, this is definitely my favourite red carpet look of 2017 so far.
The Worst Dressed on the Red carpet
Thandie Newton – SAG Awards
Although I appreciate the complexity, luxury and detail of Thandie’s dress, overall I’m honestly left confused by this look. I dislike the horses, bird and Ferris wheel details that adorn the majority of this dress, as they steal the attention away from Thandie’s sleek hair and sultry makeup. Whilst I like the unique and striking one-shoulder collar aspect, I think Thandie’s dress would look stunning if you took away all the stark black parts of it, leaving a simple but still dazzling strapless golden gown.
Felicity Jones – Golden Globe Awards
Unfortunately, I’m just not a fan of this dress. I think without the black details, this soft pink look could be beautiful. The complicated, dark patterning of this dress just doesn’t fit with its style and colour. I also dislike the bow on Felicity’s waist as I find it unnecessary and a little tacky on this red carpet gown where the dress should scream sophistication. However, I adore Felicity’s sweeping full fringe and flawless makeup, and I think that the muted shade of her dress goes perfectly with her hair colour and skin tone.
Katy Perry – Grammy Awards
From the waist up I adore Katy’s bold, metallic look. Her hair and makeup is striking and flawless (as per usual), and I love the unusual and striking space-age top part of the dress. However, I am not a fan of the faux fur skirt as I think it does nothing to flatter Katy’s incredibly toned physique. There is too much going on with this outfit and the skirt doesn’t seem to fit in with the rest of her look. That being said, Katy manages to rock this outfit with her usual sass and glamour.
