So last night saw the 2014 British Fashion Awards held in my favourite city ever, London. Celebrities, fashion icons and socialites all strolled the red carpet and massive green hedge in their best threads. Well, some of them. Those of you who have followed Haute Hoodlum this year will know that I have been tragically underwhelmed at fashion’s biggest nights and events; with the most revered players often massively disappointing me. BOO.
Last was not dissimilar. However, that list of disasters is a story all on its own and this post is about celebrating those who took risks (that pulled off) and looked like FASHION.
You may not agree with all my choices, and that is perfectly acceptable because fashion is, after all, highly subjective. But I think you will be on my side when it comes to some of these beauties.
Without further adieu, here are my favourite looks from last night’s BFAs. You’ll notice a definite trend in the plethora of small box clutches with cartoon-esque features, and an array of Emilia Wickstead designs seen on some of the biggest names in fashion; but other than that there was a huge mix of looks and styling last night which makes being an observer all the sweeter.
I have to give a massive round of applause/special mention/praise to the men on the BFA red carpet because HOT DAMN they turned that shit UP.
It is one of my favourite things when menswear gets a little edge to it (check out my post on the exciting alternatives to traditional male fashion) so I am thrilled at what went down last night.
The after party also saw some showstoppers…
And then this happened:
Let me know who you think rocked the red carpet and watch this space for the volcano of hideous fashion DON’TS that is coming…
Until next time xxx
