Black is Best at the Baftas …

I know the Brits were much more recent, but I just refuse to post about this event as I find it total cringe TV.  All I will say is that I loved Rita Ora’s canary yellow dress and leave it at that.

Anyway, onto bigger and better things, such as …… the Baftas!  I know I have commented a number of times in January that classic black seemed a very popular choice for celebs and I have to say the trend is continuing if we look at Uma Thurman, Angelina Jolie, Helen Mirren and Amy Adams ..

I think these ladies look absolutely stunning!  I LOVE all of their looks.  I’m sorry but there is no getting away from the fact that BLACK IS THEE MOST FLATTERING COLOUR ON THE FIGURE.  Yes it can be harsh on the skin which is why I also recommend navy to my customers at Belle Dress Hire, but if the fit is perfect, black will make you look slimmer than any other colour.  Besides it looks AMAZING with a strong red lip so that can be your colour comfort.

However, those on the red carpet of the Baftas that decided to go with a colour, really did make an impact!  Some in a good way, others were I’m sorry to say, a total disaster!

Looking at the positive …… Lupita Nyong’o continues to make fashion statements in a stunning shade of emerald green which complimented her skin tone to absolute perfection.

And I just have to put a mention in for Oprah Winfrey who looked fabulous in a rich plum coloured dress which really suited her shape.  She is dressing SO well at the moment, go Oprah!

Then the negative, or should I say TRAGIC!  Fearne Cotton, Lily Allen and Claudia Winkleman WTF were you thinking???????????????  This goes beyond making bad fashion choices, their looks can only be branded as ridiculous.

By the way, just a word of advice for you Claudia, if you make a total arse of yourself in front of the world’s media on the red carpet with streaky black liner, TRY TO LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES.  We kind of felt sorry for you the first time, but now, I’m sorry I’m just going to be harsh, we pity you.





Lindsay Lohan … should we feel sympathetic?

After finally completing a proper stint in rehab, Lindsay was put on the spot, no I don’t mean her polka dot spotty shoes in this instance but she was faced with some very hard hitting questions in an interview with Oprah this week.

I haven’t seen the interview myself but when I looked at the photos the TV channel has released, a few things struck me as very poignant.  On a humorous note, why the hell can Lindsay not find a supportive bra??  Her boobs look like they are sagging to her stomach!  I know she has a large bust, but there is no excuse for them looking like the breasts of an elderly pensioner.  This is not flattering at all and I just don’t know why she continues to wear such bad underwear.

But on a more serious note,  sadness was in her eyes. Please try not to focus on the obviously plumped up trout pout but look deep into her eyes.  She looks like a lost child.  I know she’s an actress but no one can “act” this type of emotion into their eyes …..

After repeated headlines, brushes with the law, theft, car crash photos of her stumbling out of clubs etc, I began to lose all empathy for Lindsay.  To me, she kept hitting the self destruct button and yet there is a small part of me that really wishes this troubled, young woman can make a comeback.
