Awards Season

Awards season 2014 is just beginning. Luckily for us there’s a bevvy of new hairstyles and fabulous frocks to drool over. Here’s our favourite fierce ladies who walked the red carpet without towing the line.

Best Dressed This Awards Season 2014

This year it is yet to snow but we’re sure to see plenty of sparkles as we can finally we can nab those red carpet looks for SS14.

First up was where TV and film meet, the Golden Globes, followed by The Grammys, BAFTAs, BRITs and Oscars. Plus, The Laurence Olivier Awards, MTV Movie Awards, TV BAFTAs 2014, CFDA Awards and Tony Awards. Now with the VMAs and The Emmys.

At this year’s Emmy Awards the carpet may as well have been painted orange with the amount of actress’ from the hit Netflix show. Yet, Orange is the New Black actress, Laverne Cox, took the crown with this goddess gown.

Unfortunately, the actual awards show has come under fire for a lack of feminism. Though, in its defence, some women tried to shake it up this year.

The VMAs are known for being out-there, whether it’s the fashion or the performances. This year saw Katy Perry embrace the whimsy and fun of the event with this outfit.

She channelled 90s pop queen Britney Spears with her all-denim look and event brought a friend to be her Justin Timberlake. Luckily, Britney approves.

If you’re not a fan of that particular decade then the performances a lot more to talk about. Nicki Minaj brought back the “accidental nip-slip” whilst her own brand of feminism has been called into question.

Then Beyoncé showed off her feminist side and everyone loved it. You can catch up with the full show here.

Tony Awards

The fabulous 2014 Tony Awards saw celebs bring the va-va-voom and no one more so than singer Fantasia. That dress and those curves certainly bring out our green eyes monster.

We’re all about the love for this awards season but if you’ve got that itch to bitch, head to Tony and Lorenzo for all the goss. Otherwise, enjoy the wonderful Alan Cummings performing with the cast of Cabaret.

At the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards 2014, Rihanna got tongues wagging for more than one reason. She attended the event to receive the Fashion Icon Award from Anna Wintour.

What got people really talking, however, was her gown. The custom Adam Selman fishnet dress, gloves and headscarf were embellished with over 216,000 Swarovski crystals. Wowee.

It also left little to the imagination. Rihanna cited burlesque heroine, Josephine Baker as an inspiration for the dress which only made us more jealous happier.

Billboard Awards

J.Lo brought back that iconic dress in a new shade (finally!!) and looked just as wonderful. She also, to bury the lead, won the Iconic Award.

According to Billboard, there was a video montage that included Rihanna saying, “You continue to break down barriers and inspire girls.” She then accepted the award from Ricky Martin and Iggy Azalea.

Jennifer Lopez said, “All you little ones sitting on the living room floor, have faith, dream big, think big,” according to Glamour. “And know that anything is possible, you never know where you might end up.”

MTV Movie Awards

We’ll get to the best dressed soon, we promise, but first it’s the best undressed. Jessica Alba may have made a little faux pas by pronouncing his name wrong but luckily Rita Ora stepped in and stripped him off.

The internet has been immediately abuzz with pics and it’s a well deserved spot on our list. Maybe we’re just having Boylexe withdrawal but it has to be said, yum.

The Magic Mike MTV Movie Awards appearance may almost be moved into second place. Almost. Re-live it with this video:

The Laurence Olivier Awards

The highlight of the theatre  awards awards season was held at the Royal Opera House in London on the same night (April 14). The Laurence Olivier Awards also attracted a star studded, if more mature, crowd.

Curvaceous Bond girl and co-host, Gemma Arterton also looked amazing on the red carpet. Bravo!


Lady Gaga

The Oscars 2014 is a classy affair dontchaknow. The red carpet saw muted tones and elegant ladies.

Yes, even Lady Gaga. It turns out the shock pop princess still can surprise. She posed for the paps with all the grace one would expect from the Academy Awards. Though some are still disappointed, you truly can’t please everyone.

The Oscars 2014 may have seen a parade of covered up women but trains and bling were also out in force. The likes of Sandra Bullock and Charlize Theron stunned onlookers in their amazing gowns.

Oh and during the ceremony… Ellen DeGeneres remains awesome.

The BRIT Awards 2014 also saw Kylie Minogue in a little black dress with a twist. This gorgeous, sexy and feminine latex black bow dress is the perfect combo of fetish and chic.

We cannot get enough. And Kylie wasn’t the only fearless woman posing for the paps. Model Rosie Huntington-Whitely rocked this print patent leather dress. We wants! Both!! All!


Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

Lalaland power couple, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, wowed on the red carpet at the BAFTAs this weekend. His suave getup alongside her glamour is enviable.

Once again, J-Law’s dress was another internet sensation created by the actress and her fans. Now known as the Jennifer Lawrence duvet dress (Google it, trust us), it got such responses as this one below. You can also see oh so much more from The Telegraph.

Unfortunately, 2013 saw some significant body shaming, including pregnant celebs. Fortunately, this year seems to be a celebration for expecting mothers and their fabulous figures.

Alongside Scandal star, Kerry Washington, Olivia Wilde and Drew Barrymore were also seen sporting their baby bumps. And we have to say, they all looked amazing!

Enjoy the Golden Globes opening speech by hilarious comedy duo, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler:
