We gave the spotlight to several of the more FASHIONY folks at this year’s Fashion Awards, but it’s time for the remainders to get the rundown treatment.
Charli XCX in Flannels x Vivienne Westwood
It’s not the most original dress in the world and we’ll never fully love short dresses with trains, but this is all working pretty well for her. It suits her.
Emma Roberts in Attico
Newp. Hate the hem, hate the train, hate the caterpillar gloves. Sorry, girl.
Julia Roberts (with Giorgio Armani) in Armani Privé
She looks drop-dead fabulous. That’s the thing about Julia’s style. It’s not flashy but when she gets the right look and the right styling, she reminds you why she’s a star. Love the earrings. A totally unexpected choice.
Laura Carmichael in Ralph & Russo Couture
We hate to sound prudish or like we disapprove of mini-dresses, but that design element needed a little more dress around it to give it the space to breathe. It overwhelms her, but if this were a gown it would all feel a bit more proportionate.
Lily James in Valentino Couture
Ironically, having said all that, we’d probably like this more if it was an A-line mini. That bow is ridiculous but we can see it working on a more sex-kittenish kind of dress. Right now it looks like a bow with a sheet attached to it.
Michelle Dockery in Armani Privé
Hmm. There’s nothing technically wrong with it (except for maybe being a bit tight), but it sure is a disappointingly dull choice for her.
Naomi Campbell in Alexander McQueen
It’s a dress we’ve seen a million times but she’s making it seem fierce and fashionable as shit. Such is the power of The Naomi.
Naomi Watts in Burberry
This Naomi, on the other hand, could’ve used a little more energy in the accessories. The dress is pretty great, but those shoes aren’t doing it and the jewelry, while pretty, is maybe a little too subtle.
Nathalie Emmanuel in Preen by Thornton Bregazzi
The skirt and the bodice look like two different garments that shouldn’t be worn together.
Nicholas Hoult in Giorgio Armani
Noomi Rapace in Ann Demeulemeester
Love this crazy chick. She makes the most ridiculous ensembles look chic and sharp as hell.
Rita Ora in 16Arlington
That’s a LOT of dress. We like it for its impact, but it isn’t the kind of outfit that calls for crazy eye makeup. If anything, a relatively clean face would’ve made more sense here.
