Do London’s celeb photogs ever sleep? Maybe only on Sundays, if there isn’t some kind of Colin Firth happening then. No sooner did the BAFTA red carpet get rolled up than another rolled forward yesterday, at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London. The occasion was the much-watched Elle Style Awards 2011. Founded in France, Elle is known around the world as a magazine that acts as a bell-ringer in women’s fashion. Starlets were in flawless-dress mode.
TV presenter Jameela Jamil kept it funky with a white lace-up shoe but we find the pretty dress worthy of a dressed-up look from Cynthia Vincent. This is the Cynthia Vincent Ramsay Sandal Grey/Silver Leather.
Singer Corinne Bailey Rae chose a stylish short black jacket over a soft floral dress. The outfit could use the frothy, kittenish touch of a Roberto Festa shoe. This is the Roberto Festa Lizzie Slingback Pump Beige Patent with kitten heel.
Actress Emilia Fox decided to bridge elegance with eccentricity. The payoff was a self-assured pose that it all worked. And it did. As her top was a conversation piece, her shoes needed no extra help. Gastone Lucioli’s shoe nicely echoes her outfit, though, especially the crochet look around her sleeves. This is the Gastone Lucioli 2014 Bootie Black Suede.
