NTA’s – The Verdict

I have to say I was actually pleasantly surprised at the level of high fashion at this year’s National Television Awards.  Normally I think it’s car crash TV with a red carpet BUT I honestly believe everyone kicked it up a notch in 2014.

There seemed to be a focus on either Sequin, Revealing or Nude coloured styles so let’s look at the glitzy gals firstly …

Newly divorced Kym Marsh was in top to toe black sequin.  I think because she’s very covered up due to the long sleeves and a lack of accessories to break the look up makes this style a little flat.  She should have added some colour in her handbag or her shoes.  Remember Margo Robbie teamed emerald green shoes with a cream gown at the Golden Globes and looked amazing?

Coupled with Kym’s very dark hair, this all looks a little Mortica Adams to me.

If you are wanting to go for a full length sequin gown, be bold and go for a colour, a pattern OR even half fabric/half sequin!  This will make a huge difference in photos and as long as the sequin is of a high quality it’s actually very flattering on the figure and hides lumps and bumps!!  Check out these stunning sequin gowns available at Belle Dress Hire ..

Nude/cream/champagne I have always said are extremely difficult colours to wear in long dresses unless you have a very strong hair colour and bold makeup.  Naomi Campbell, Amy Willerton, Jessica Wright and Fearne Cotton show us how to make these normally “bland” colours exciting.

Ahoy cleavage, thighs and lots of skin!  Some of the ladies were very brave with their dress choices, yes I’m talking to you Jennifer Metcalfe and Kelly Brook!  Hey if you’ve got it, flaunt it, right?

Novak’s girlfriend, Jelena Ristic absolutely wowed at the event in a stunning black and white Oscar de la Renta striped dress.  I just love this style and think it looks so chic, yet modern, young and fresh.

At almost £6000 it’s an expensive investment so make sure to check out similiar looks on the High Street at much more affordable prices!!!  Or make an appointment at Belle to try on this similiar look for just £70 ….
