Top 3 Best Dressed at the 2012 Scottish Fashion Awards in Glasgow

Top 3 Best Dressed at the 2012 Scottish Fashion Awards in Glasgow

Acknowledging the best in Scottish fashion, style and design for the past year, the SFAs took place this evening at the Clyde Auditorium in Glasgow, Scotland.

Among the elite attending Scotland’s most prestigious fashion event; Louise Linton wore one of my favourite design statements of the night, striking a pose on the red carpet in bip-cut white gown with such delicate detailing as lace appliqué, pleated double layer skirts and a thigh-high slit which she gracefully did not emphasise by sticking her leg out of it a la current trend. Also notably fashionable were Cat Cubie in a fuchsia pink peplumed short-sleeved gown and Karen Gilan who certainly looked liked a winner in a 3\4 sleeve canary yellow and black mini dress paired with black pumps as she posed with her ‘style icon’ of the year award.

Bollywood Fashion Update: Double Fashion Assault on Sonam Kapoor via Priyanka Chopra and Cousin Parineeti!!!

WHO: Priyanka and Parineeti Chopra take on Fashion Icon Sonam Kapoor’s style

WHAT: Fashion Showdown

WHEN: June 9th

WHERE: 2012 IIFA Awards in Singapore

Sonam(left) & Parineeti

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: Sonam Kapoor’s debut on the international scene at last year’s Cannes Film Festival was a big deal for the Indian fashion circuit and perhaps even globally as many international designers such as Prabal Gurung, Victoria Beckham & Jean Paul Gaultier (whom she wore for her debut) began to open their eyes to the baby fashion darling. That said, stylists for both Parineeti & Priyanka Chopra must have known what the were doing when they decided to place both actresses in statements already made by Kapoor. Excuse me while I gasp, if no stylists were involved. I think Priyanka wearing the Dolce & Gabbana dress (previously worn by Kapoor at Cosmopolitan’s Fun & Fearless Female Awards) is actually forgivable because in the long run designers want their clothes to be worn by as many people as possible. It is her cousin Parineeti’s fashion faux pas that took the whole ‘imitation is the sincerest form of flattery’ thing to a whole other level. SHE IS WEARING A JATIN VARMA THAT LOOKS LIKE A PLAGIARISED KNOCK-OFF OF THE JEAN PAUL GAULTIER KAPOOR WORE AT CANNES…LAST YEAR. Should stars be caught wearing knock-offs? Should designers dressing stars be caught allegedly borrowing from other designers? It is one thing to do something like this on a regional level but at an award show that takes place at an international venue where the foreign press is invited? There are pictures on Getty for crying out loud!

The Red Carpet at the 69th Annual Golden Globes Had Us Seeing Some Serious Bridal Trains…

Amanda Peet

There was RED and there was BLUE but if you are a bride-to-be or a mother of the bride-to-be well, you were in luck last night because “bridal” was certainly trending on the red carpet at the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards. From the Modern to the flat of Matronly,  there certainly was something for everyone so feel free to draw your inspiration from what you saw on display. In a sea of statement gowns and sleek dresses, the wedding gown look as seen above stood out (we’re sure Vera Wang would be so proud) as a clear trend and while we loved some and turned our faces away at the others we can honestly conclude that last night saw some of the best fashion displays on red carpet in a very long time. Well done ladies.

I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank everybody who joined us LIVE via Twitter last night for making it such a memorable night of lively fashion commentary and discussion. A special thanks for our friends @zimbio, @Polyvore ,@DImageBoutique & @KMartFashion

Also thank you to @dkny‘s PR Girl who tweeted us this message:
