Time to celebrate Brits in all their glory with the 2014 Brit Awards. Let’s see which (mostly English) celebs wore what and wonder why. Then, single out some for BEST, WORST, and most WTF look of the night. (For more British fashion goodness, check out this BAFTA Awards fashion post.)
Beyoncé looks stunning, as usual. But I’m not too keen on the sleeves.
This is someone named Annie Mac. Google tells me she is an “an Irish DJ and television presenter.” She is clearly our hipster for the evening. (Every awards show has one!) Let’s all say it together: THAT HAIR. COME ON.
This is Ella Henderson, a British singer-songwriter and finalist on the ninth series of The X Factor, and she kind of reminds me of Ke$ha. I’m trying to figure out what the hell is going on with her neckline and if I like it. I don’t like her choice in jewelry and hair. It’s like she dashed off from Coachella just in time to slip on a dress and heels.
Ellie Goulding. Are you totally not surprised this gown is by Vivienne Westwood? I think it’s dreadful. It fits her nicely but it’s just a real hot mess of a gown.
Oh dear. Here we are again, back with Jessie J and her flesh-colored jumpsuit and dead flesh-colored lipstick. She already took to twitter to apologize for the lips, LOL. Amazed someone convinced her it was a good look.
This is Jodie Albert, and English actress and singer. I couldn’t ignore this outfit. Look at those damn sleeves! I’d almost be okay with them if not for the neon Forever 21-ish heels. You can’t do crazy sleeves and crazy shoes. Not unless you’re Bjork.
Kylie Minogue all wrapped up in latex with a bow just for us! Why two giant bows, Kylie? Was one just not enough? Because I think one is enough. Still, she looks so insanely hot in this I can’t hate it.
Lily Allen. I like the dress, and I know that hair is her thing now (she loves wacky hair) but I really think it ruins the whole thing. It’s like she’s trying to combine Lady Gaga and Beyoncé with this look. Like, she looks totally hot, and I get that this is her style, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it.
Nicole Scherzinger still gets invited to stuff, huh? What a world we live in. I am trying to figure out what in the name of Janet Jackson hell is going on with her top, and why she thought she needed a tuxedo blazer on top of it.
Looks like Pharrell decided to leave his wacky hat at home this time. I guess he was frolicking in the ocean shortly before getting on the red carpet, or maybe he was clam digging. My point is, the pants. We cannot ignore the pants. Why did he do that? Why, Pharrell? Well, I guess it’s one way to ignore the dreaded swamp pants (see Leonardo DiCaprio in this post for an example of swamp pants). Wife Helen Lasichanh is wearing some cool pants, but the material of the pants clashes terribly with the material of the blazer.
Rita Ora. I don’t know about that dress color with that hair color. She looks great, but this is almost a little boring for her.
Finally, how stunning is model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley? I mean, the dress is pretty damn tacky, but she’s still pretty damn stunning.
Here are my picks. It was hard because honestly, no one really wowed me, but here we go:
WORST: Nicole Sherssxinszzingversz
WTF: Jessie J
