Are you ready for another red carpet? Yesterday we switched between understated glamour of the BAFTAs and the flesh-flashing Grammys get-ups, and today ELLE Style Awards are rounding out the awards season trifecta with an elegant bunch of Britain's best-dressed. The Geldof girls went for opposite ends of the style spectrum; Pixie in a chic suit and Peaches in a super femme frock. Stella McCartney dressed two of the night's leading ladies with Kate Hudson opting for a lace-inset scarlet gown and cutie Chloë Moretz in her bold monochrome look. Our other fave? Elizabeth Olsen looking very cool thanks to fellow Brit-designer Christopher Kane. Step inside to see it all.
As if yesterday's BAFTA Awards didn't supply enough British style, UK Elle further fuelled our style-stalking appetite by hosting the 2012 Style Awards last night in London. The usual suspects were in attendance (Alexa in Stella McCartney, Poppy in Mary Katrantzou, Pixie in Dolce & Gabbana and Rosie in Antonio Berardi), but there were a few new faces that impressed us with their stellar looks. Tallulah Harlech oozed effortless style whilst Tali Lennox got seriously glam. Take a tour of the best of British fashion inside!
A slew of the most stylish British celebs frock up in London last night for the GQ Men of the Year Awards, with yet again, the ladies outshining the men of the evening. Whilst Bradley Coooper's suave tux was indeed a sight to behold, we'd rather take ownership of Lara Stone's zingy orange shift. Other looks of note included Emma Watson's tartan McQ prom dress, Kylie Minogue's satin Dolce & Gabbana A/W '11 cocktail frock and Charlize Theron's elegant A/W '11 Roland Mouret number. Step inside to scope all the red carpet action.
Kylie Minogue and Emma Watson were among the many stylish ladies who attended the British GQ Men of the Year Awards in at The Royal Opera House in London last night. Kylie looked gorgeous in a little black dress while Emma showed off an edgier look in a tartan print frock. They were joined by the likes of Holly Valance, who will appear on the newest series of Strictly Come Dancing, Charlize Theron, Leona Lewis, and models Lara Stone and Daisy Lowe at the event. Among the men who came out to celebrate were U2, Bradley Cooper, Heston Blumenthal, Jamie Callum and John Legend.
At Monday night's ELLE Style Awards bash, Sophie Ellis Bextor paired mint green shadow with a coral lip which was kooky and cool, but she opted for a more traditional makeup palette for last night's Brit Awards, teaming a shimmering shadow with classic winged eyeliner and red lips. You know how much we love red lips with a red frock so we think this is a winning look. And we love Sophie's ladylike French twist. What do you think of Soph's look? Do you like it?

We're going into red carpet meltdown here at Fab HQ! First up yesterday morning we had the BAFTAs, then latched straight onto the frock-fun- fest of the 2011 Grammys, and today it's the ELLE Style Awards in London that's got our pulses racing. GOSH. So many great outfits, so little time! Alexa Chung made a quick dash across the pond from New York Fashion Week for the ELLE event, and we're SO glad she did! Lex joined the well dressed crowd, which included Emma Watson in Haakan, Blake Lively in Emilio Pucci, Cheryl Cole, Thandie Newton, and Pixie Geldof, as well as designers Matthew Williamson and Henry Holland. Phew! What a line up. Click on through to see what these stylish stars wore to the Brit bash of the year.
Well, hellooooooo Miss Super-Slick Watson, don't we look HAWT at the 2011 ELLE Style Awards? Sexing things up from her BAFTAs look the night before, Emma went for a deep part, gelled-down strands and kohl-rimmed eyes at the London bash last night. Also looking super stylish at the par-tay was Helena Christensen who rocked a sultry, glittery eye, prompting us to wholeheartedly say that we WILL wear glitter again (who knew?), Alexa Chung who worked a couple of wavy kinks through her newly-sheared strands, British X Factor judge Cheryl Cole who opted for red on red (Bravo, Chezza), Blake Lively who looked golden and glamorous and Sophie Ellis Bextor, whose palette of mint green shadow and coral lip we found kooky. LOVE.
Sophie Ellis-Bextor stepped out two nights in a row and bring the smart cookie she is, she knew it would give her two opportunities to test our different lip colours. On Tuesday night she opted for a simple nude lip at the H&M Home launch in London, while last night she went for punchy, playful pink at an InStyle and Dolce & Gabbana party. The Rimmel brand ambassador likes flirting with both looks (her love of winged eyeliner is a constant) and likes her lips with a bit of shine. She obviously looks great with a nude lip but my vote goes for her bold look, simply because she’s one of the few stars we often see with a fun pink shade. Are you Team Nude or Team Pink for Sophie?
Sophie Ellis-Bextor must have some darn good fashion connections, coz we spotted her at last night's Instyle Magazine and Dolce & Gabbana soiree wearing a statement making embellished necklace from the famed Lanvin for H&M collection — which we saw for the first time yesterday! Even NYC fashion editors won't be able to get their paws on the collection as fast as Soph has. The range hasn't been released to the public yet, but we're guessing the PR machine behind the H&M collab' is handing out press pieces for editorial coverage and celebrity loans. Retailing for about $56 AUD, the embellished flower, pearl and chain necklace was spied on Irinia Lazareanu in the campaign, but we think that Sophie looked just as good, teaming it with a standout purple shift. Methinks it'll be a celebrity game of Guess Who to see who next dons the range. Who else do you think will be on the Lanvin for H&M bandwagon?
London played host to Fashion's Night Out this week as British Vogue encouraged you to go out and shop whilst rubbing shoulders with the stars! There were plenty of celebrities out and about lending support to their favourite designers whilst looking very stylish. The biggest parties of the night were held at Stella McCartney, Burberry, Mulberry and Juicy Couture. Click through to see photos from the night.
