Empire Awards: Bonnie Wright Rocks A Black Suit

Who: Harry Potter star Bonnie Wright

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

Wearing: A smart and chic black Dolce & Gabbana trouser suit, teamed with black platform heels, hoop earrings, and a chunky necklace

Verdict: I love it when the androgynous look is worked well, and you can’t get any better than the cute and girlie Bonnie rocking a chic black suit with a flash of lace peaking through. What is good about a fun award show like Empire is that the girlies can work something different and Bonnie it seems isn’t afraid to try something new and that’s why I love seeing her whether on a red carpet or at fashion week.

There have been a number of young starlets that have worked the trouser suit to perfection – with one of my favourite looks being Leighton Meester working menswear designed by Thom Browne, this outfit from Bonnie is right up there with Leighton for me.

Bonnie also gets the best make-up award of the night from me – her smoky eyes are perfection as is her ponytail – HOT look I really love it.

What do you think – does Bonnie do androgynous well?

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.

Jameson Empire Awards: Ophelia Lovibond Goes For A Sixties Vibe

Who: Ophelia Lovibond

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

Wearing: A 60’s style two-tone Paule Ka shift dress from the spring/summer 2011 collection, with leather-belted detailing, teamed with white tights and Alexander McQueen peep-toe heels with skull detailing and a metallic leather bag with chain strap

Verdict: I don’t normally love the white tight vibe, but I think it is the combination of the cute shift, the touselled hair and the statement heels, which makes it work. There is something special about Ophelia, starting with her name, but she really has a quirky style which I love, and can’t wait to see it develop.
