Two huge events on both sides of the globe, pulling in some of the biggest names in music and film, both bound to include plenty of fantastic fashion moments, but who won the battle of the red carpet – The GRAMMYs or The BAFTAs?
First up was the very stylish and glamorous BAFTAs in London. With classic Hollywood leading ladies, like Julianne Moore and Thandie Newton, and fresh new starlets, like Hailee Steinfeld and Emma Stone, the red carpet was awash with beautiful dresses and couture creations.
The designer of choice seemed to be Tom Ford, who was also in attendance, and in fitting with The Kings Speech award monopoly, Royal Blue was the colour of choice.
If the BAFTAs was all about old-school Hollywood, the GRAMMYs was all about the Divas. Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj went very animalistic, with Gaga being carried down the red carpet in a Kinder Egg (wow) and Minaj in head to toe leopard print (meow).
Other D-I-V-A-S on the red carpet made sure they stood out by showing some skin, namely their legs, in mullet dresses, micro minis and never ending slits. Add plenty of gold and sequins and, in Katy perry’s case, angel wings (?), and you have a Vegas worthy red carpet with plenty of razzle-dazzle.
Best stems award has to go to Jennifer Lopez and Eva Longoria, who both wowed in micro-mino. Eva looks fantastic and classic in her mono-chrome dress, but Jennifer wins hands down in the diva stakes.
Rihanna and Florence Welch showed subtle skin with sheer panels in their floor length dresses (Florence’s dress is from the recently shown Givenchy collection at Couture Fashion Week).
Overall, we think the BAFTAs won this red carpet show down, with no small thanks to the masterful Tom Ford. Emma Stone, Thandie Newton and Julianne Morre all managed to look fresh and classic on the red carpet, and overall the standard was really high (sorry, Gaga!).
