The British Fashion Awards were upon us once again. Last night Fashion’s A-List descended upon London town for the annual BFA’s in which Kate Moss and Suzy Menkes won Special Recognition Awards for services to the industry. I-D won the Outstanding achievement award and Edie Campbell won Model of the Year. All much deserved and unsurprising. The only real surprise was that Alexa Chung wasn’t in Christopher Kane, and instead opted for Stella McCartney.
The Red Carpet is always a winner for beauty looks, especially at this time of the year and Blush’s favourites came from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Laura Bailey and Daisy Bevan.
Rosie H-W as always was head-turning, in what is undoubtedly going to be a controversial suit by designer Antonio Berardi. The scarlet suit which at first glance looked like OTK boots, was matched with a striking glossy red lipstick. Allowing her pout and pantsuit to take centre-stage, the supermodel and M&S star, worked the very on-trend slick back and a simple sweep of eyeliner. Regardless of what everyone will say about her suit, her face, as always was perfection.
Daisy Bevan is the new starlet to watch. The daughter of Joely Richardson and granddaughter of acting legend Vanessa Redgrave, big things are expected of Daisy. Daisy wore an off-the-shoulder emerald lace dress from Burberry’s Resort ’14, with a half embellished waist. Though the shoes are regrettable, Daisy’s bronze smokey eye was perfection. Seen everywhere from Tom Ford to Gucci for Autumn/Winter ’14, the bronze smokey eye is the perfect way to create an impact and keep eyes dramatic without the intense darkness of the classic black. When paired with unfussy hair, as Daisy did, the look appears even more effortless.
Laura Bailey’s amazing strappy platforms are noteworthy in themselves. When teamed with her pale pink princess silhoutte the duo is dreamy. The great thing about Bailey’s look is her top half is pretty tough, what with the sleeveless shift top of her dress. Her Rapunzel-esque locks stop the top half from becoming butch but also just adds to the whole fairytale. I want to grow my hair!
