It’s London time-to-shine last night, as many celebrities across the music, entertainment and fashion industries attended the studded event associated with Glamour Magazine.
Now in its 10th year, the award ceremony continues to celebrate the achievements of the sisters-who are doing it better for themselves #…strong enough to bare the children (children) then get back to business…# (Beyonce — ‘Who Run The World (Girls)’.
Commencing this post with popularity, Little Mix won Best Band. The quartet have become unstoppable on both sides of the Atlantic; breaking the mission impossible of getting their album ‘DNA’ among the top five in the US Billboards Album Charts. Salute! Salute! Salute!
These sweet muffins have strongly become associated with brother boy group One Direction. Nothing different from the Spice Girls and Boyzone in the 90s (even though there was fierce competition between ‘Boy Power’ and ‘Girl Power’). Dressing in monochrome coordination, these ladies need no introduction to their style. In fact come to think of it, it’s a style evolution. Gone are the days when they used to sport pop brights, as they’ve stated about their ‘Salute’ album as ‘mature R&B’, these ladies have become mature young women before our eyes…
(bursting into a song) #..they’re grown women, they can do whatever they want…# (Beyonce).
Mollie King from the Saturdays also sports the white in her shift dress.
Other winners in the music-star-of-fame we have Paloma Faith, who took home best UK Solo Artist. Embracing her Spanish roots, the ladette opted for an all sheered, ruffled black gown that revives the passion of Spanish dancing — except this time, she was gracing the ceremony last night. With sheer being among the trends of this season, it’s no wonder that many ladies are hitting it hard in the gym…
Continuing on the fashion of ruffles and pleats are Caroline Flack and Lake Bell.
Other winners include Taylor Swift (International Solo Artist), Fashion Designer Simone Rocha, Sportswoman Christine Ohuruogu, Radio Personality Fearne Cotton, Davina McCall (Glamour Hero) and Columnist Jane Moore.
The night welcomed the likes of icons and legends. Such as Naomi Campbell, who has moved on from being a legendary supermodel to TV Personality on International show ‘The Face‘ (with a UK pilot). Sure thing that many would disagree with her attitude but many wouldn’t deny her fierceness and strength when she walks that runway baby (snap for kids people, snap for the kids). When she attends an event, you know its high-fashion from head to toe. Alexander McQueen to be precise ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
Samuel L. Jackson added his masculine touch to the all out bold brights. Many men would think ‘moi, wearing a bright suit? No chance!’ Think again my brothers, because he’s looking ‘dapper than ever mate’ (Cockney accent). Pimped out like a gentleman. 😎
The love of the blues continue on with Lorraine Kelly and Laura Whitmore.
In discussion of Whitmore’s dress, her style would have been effective if the sleeve was removed, then we would see the matching coordination with the shoes. Guess it’s another trial and error under my unprofessional-unlicensed-non-expertise advice. Notwithstanding, I’ve stated previously of the dangers of placing two opposite patterns together if not done appropriately…just saying.
Comedian Sarah Hyland is emerging as the next actor to watch. Alongside her are Taylor Schilling (Editor’s Special Award) and Accessories Designer Katie Hillier, who all have one thing in common: metallics!
Resuming from the Whitmore’s trial and error style, Nicole Kidman and Dame Helen Mirren were honoured Glamour Magazine’s Best Outstanding Contribution and Glamour Icon. Indeed these women have embraced vast movie roles that have become a breakthrough in their careers. Dame Mirren looks amazing at 70s with the royalty that every icon deserves. She’s growing older ‘gracefully’.
So ladies no matter what, you’re always a woman of the year. No matter what you do and who you are. This award ceremony is just a scope as to how much women have achieved and recognizes that despite us being the attractive mate, we are behind every good man, we are more than objects, but queens with brain. Afterall, beauty only lasts for a while right?
