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.

Hollywood Fashion Update: The Best and Worst of the Tony Awards 2012

Held last night in New York City, for me the fashion statements at the Tony awards of the year 2012 did not register any better than India’s IIFA awards which took place a day before in Singapore. Catherine Zeta Jones was not there this year to spice things up and those who did show up, failed to sizzle.

I think it’s just that time of the year where except for resort wear, all the best red carpet looks for the current season have already been worn. I mean, Bernadette Peters showed up in the blue version of the red Donna Karan dress Nina Dobrev made supremely famous at the Emmys. She looked beautiful and was one of the best dressed stars last night but it was a bit underwhelming because we had seen it before and done to perfection. Audra Mcdonald looked stunning in a revival of cobalt blue and rounding out the top three best dressed was Beth Behrs in an effective red Naeem Khan gown.

Amanda Seyfried disappointed in an overly busy for night-time-telly Givenchy number, Sheryl Crow didn’t win either in a dull blue lacy number that did nothing for her cheerful personality or great body. The less said about Jessica Chastain who inexplicably put her boobs on reckless display in a lacy Mario Schwab mini dress, the better it will be for everyone.

Fashion Update: Solange Knowles Stuns in Yellow + More Fascinating Looks from the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards

Fashionwidget’s Favourites

Karolina, Solange & Kate


Zoe & Padma


June, Hilary & Selita

From Zoë Saldaña’s noir sheer cut-out Prabal Gurung to Solange Knowles in a yellow and white Marni mini, the fashions of the CFDA fashion awards were certainly a hot topic for discussion this year. I especially appreciated the understated elegance of Padma Lakshmi’s intricately detailed Naeem Khan gown, in a sea of colourful statement ensembles, I think she managed to stand out in black just like Zoë Saldaña. June Abrose glittered in silver sequins. Hilary Rhonda colour-blocked in cut-out perfection and Selita Ebanks was a vision in white. With the absence of Lady Gaga (a previous CFDA fashion award recipient) who stole the show and not to mention all the attention last year, there was room for all sorts of fashion statements this year. Fashionwidget, narrowed it down to the nine pictures as seen above, we also loved Devon Aoki in her amazing red and black Alice+Olivia strapless gown. Unfortunately, our photographer was unable to snap a photo of her. Never fear, I will re-blog or update this post if I stumble upon a photo of her (in the dress) that I can legally upload.

Blood-RED, Cherry-RED, Cranberry-RED, Tomato-RED, Red Carpet-RED, you name it you got at the 63rd annual Prime Time Emmy awards ceremony held in Los Angeles last night. It seemed the official colour of the night or at least the award show ceremony was RED which is why we’ve created a special category for actresses dressed in the colour to make the best dressed selection process a little easier.   ~Fashionwidget

OUR PICK: Nina Dobrev in DKNY

Runner- Up: Kate Winslet is Elie Saab

WORST IDEAS ON THE GREEN CARPET

Malaika Arora-Khan

We love Malaika but even our love can’t save this poor choice of an outfit from fizzling on a global stage. It’s ghastly.

Genelia D'Souza

She followed Malaika with this very boring colour and it didn’t do much for her either. Alexander McQueen clutch or not, this look is a NO-NO.

Lisa Ray

That necklace does not belong anywhere near this outfit Lisa, the dress is just too easy-breezy for such a statement necklace and what is up with the shoes? We expected more from you.
