Last night's Pride of Britain Awards saw a star-studded line-up don their gladrags for their red carpet moment. But who were the winners and losers in the style parade? Here's my review of the celeb looks..

Christine Bleakley put her Daybreak troubles behind her last night and graced the red carpet in a black, assymetric, sequin encrusted number by Dannii Minogue's fashion label, Project D. Project D dresses are fast becoming a celeb red-carpet favourite, seen previously on Amanda Holden, Liz Hurley, and of course Dannii herself. I'm not a big fan of this dress on Christine however, the look maybe simple and tasteful but it is also doing nothing for the tv presenter's fantastic figure. The length is odd, it should either be thigh-skimming or knee-grazing, not languishing in limbo-land somewhere in between. So whilst look this isn't a red carpet disaster, it's also not winning any best-dressed prizes from me.
Next up best pals Cheryl Cole and my style crush, Nicola Roberts, walked the red carpet together in two contrasting looks. Cheryl played it safe in a floor-skimming black gown, perhaps choosing a simple gown following the criticism her recent X-factor outfit choices have recieved. I think Cheryl looks nice here- simple, grown-up and stylish. Nicola wore a gown by a favourite designer of mine, Brit boy William Tempest. I am in love with the look- the mid-calf length of this dress is bang-on-trend and the bejewelled platform sandals add a touch of girly luxe to the overall outfit. All-in-all another sartorial triumph for fashion's new darling.

Finally, whilst I don't want to be seen to be Coleen-bashing (she's had her fair share of that in the media lately), I didn't like Ms Rooney's look at all; her dress was made from some odd, shiny, black-patterned material that looked cheap and more suited to a bargain basement gown. However, I have to give kudos to Coleen for her on-trend leopard print accessories and her updo that was reminscent of the hair styling on Prada's a/w10 catwalk. But even these styling touches failed to rescue such a dire dress, a shame, because Coleen's looking trim and healthy (whatever's going on in her private life). What are your opinion on the red carpet dresses from the event?


  1. totallu agree on Coleen's outfit is totally out of place thinking she has millions and could pay a stylist.

    regarding Mulberry for Target , the bags are not leather made, but I love the small pochette at just 15 dollars. Is cute and is Mulberry

  2. I was expecting a bit more from Cheryl. Whilst she looks beaut (as per) I kind of wanted a bit more glam, know what I mean. Nicola Roberts looks AMAZING. Love the look, gorgeous, its almost mystifying :)


  3. Nicola Roberts looks beautiful, I love her style too - it has a certain "Je ne sais pas" about it! x

  4. Glad you all loved Nicola's look too- she's so beautiful pale :) x

  5. I don'tl like this dresses either, but I like your blog! What do you think of following each other? xx Nura from 'World Of Fashion Inpspiration'

  6. I'm following Nura- love your blog :) x

  7. I think that her dress was probably from george lol. I liked Nicola's look too and Cheryl looked stunning as always.


  8. i'm also not a fan of coleens style here, it makes her look low-class instead of top-class, bless her. Nicola looks fabulous!!
    great blog!
