The Elle Style Awards took place in London last night, and while there are awards given out (with our own Simone Rocha, daughter of John, walking away with the New Designer of the Year gong), the reason everyone went was A. To stare at Bradley Cooper and B. Stare at each others frocks and judge the crap out of each other. It was a mixed bag for fashion, with most of the successfully dressed going for traditional gúnas while the failures of the night went to those who tried to push the boat out. Here's the rundown.
Kate Hudson did red carpet all over in strapless red embroidered Stella McCartney (who was honoured with International Designer of the Year) and stole the show, along with Naomie Harris in a bright orange and pink number (it looks a lot better than it sounds). Peaches Geldof showed off her baby bump in a soft pink lace dress and baby daddy arm candy, while Editor's Choice Award winner Alicia Vikander went all Austin Powers on us in a white check mini-dress.
Andrea Riseborough corrected her mistake from the BAFTAs and looked a lot more comfortable in a silver feather bottomed mini-dress. Could be something to do with having Matthew Williamson on her arm for the evening. Same can be said for Arizona Muse's feather bottomed number.
RED ALERT: Rachel Stevens is back. This can only mean good things.
Dawn O'Porter gives us mixed feelings in her Thoroughly Modern Madeline dress, but her and Chris O'Dowd just look so cute we can't hate it.
Kristen McMenamy went for punk rock Snow Queen and looked terrifying. As in nightmare inducing. Zawe Ashton continued her out there dress choices a night after the BAFTAs, with a Robocop look that even she doesn't seem exactly thrilled with. Juno Temple, fresh off winning her BAFTA on Sunday, looks like she's just rode in on her horse and she's straight back out to Ascot afterwards, while Gemma Cairney decided to delight us all with a polo-necked boob burqa.
Pixie Geldof did her best 'John Lennon joins the navy' impression, Aluna George forgot to put pants on and Laura Whitmore disappointed us once again with a short banana skin dress that barely covered her nethers. And we don't even know what's going on with Katy B's legs.
Roksanda Ilincic, we're assuming doesn't have a naturally swollen lower half so we're going to say she was hiding a bell under there? Suki Waterhouse wins the awards for Best Name of the Year, but also worst dressed for her washed out acid trip pants suit, narrowly beating out Daisy Lowe's giant floral bustle number.
Elizabeth Olson obviously got frozen out of it at the BAFTAs and decided to give zero sh*ts and wear a jacket over her dress. It's a nice jacket and all, but come on, it's a red carpet.
