Empire Awards: Olivia Wilde In Carolina Herrera

Who: Olivia Wilde

Where: At the 2012 Jameson Empire Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London presenting an award to her ‘hero’ Gary Oldman

Wearing: A sheer silver beaded long sleeve Carolina Herrera gown from the spring/summer 2012 collection, teamed with a black Jimmy Choo clutch

Verdict: I am in two minds for this look – on one hand I am loving this delicate beaded gown it has a shimmering glamour that no-one else brought to last night’s awards red carpet, but on the other hand I just not sure if I am loving it on Olivia.

Everything from the heavy necklace-style embellishment to the dot-print silk chiffon should make this a standout gown, and on the catwalk it did but for some reason Olivia doesn’t shine in it for me.

What do you think – hit or miss from Olivia?

Empire Awards: Agyness Deyn In House of Holland

Who: Model-turned-actress-turned-Dr Martens designer Agyness Deyn

Where: At the 2012 Jameson Empire Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London

Wearing: A three-quarter sleeved red House of Holland dress from the autumn/winter 2012 collection featuring purple embroidery, and teamed with the catwalk red platform laced brogues

Verdict: I am loving this girlie look from Agyness, who hasn’t been seen on the red carpet for a while, and how sweet that she seems to always wear her friends designers, spotted in LA wearing Rebecca Minkoff and last night in London she worked Henry Holland’s label.

What is cool about this catwalk-to-red carpet look has to be that space invader embroidery print  that shimmers on the front of the dress, which takes this flattering classic look to a quirky vibe that looks perfect on Agyness. What I am also loving is her hair – how cute does her blonde bob look tucked behind her ear.
