BAFTA’s – Helen’s Winners and Losers

Posted on February 22, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , |

2009 was a miserable year economically and 2010 doesn’t seem to be shaping up to be much better. Luckily, us mere mortals still can revel in the glamour of awards ceremonies – like the BAFTAs!!

If you’re looking to recreate some red carpet glamour but don’t have a deep enough wallet, I’ve found this red maxi dress from Goddiva. No promises on whether the dress suits all figures as when you buy cheaper clothes, you know that you are taking a gamble on the fabric and the precise cut – will it suit your unique figure?

Kimberley Walsh

Kimberley Walsh, Girls Aloud singer made a fashion clanger in my eyes. She had what was potentially a very eye-catching and lovely dress, she turned it into a calamitous ensemble with that strange fluffy thing draped over her shoulders.

The result?

Fashion critics saying she looked like a lampshade!

The dress undoubtedly took some poor soul hours to make, but the end effect was fussy. You can’t possibly be overstated at the BAFTAs, this is as high end as celebrity fashion goes! The ordinary people like you and me would look positively overdressed at a ball in a dress like this. Kimberley’s choice was a brave one, I just feel she didn’t quite pull it off. Commiserations.

Joely Richardson

Joely Richardson certainly should know a thing or two about pure Hollywood glamour! Born of the Redgrave acting dynasty, I expect she and members have her family have been down the red carpet more than anyone! Joely’s dark blue dress is perfect for the BAFTAs, a beautiful dark blue that shimmers when the light catches it. The fabric clinics in all the right places showing off her shapely silhouette.

Because of the ‘bling’ on her shoulders, she doesn’t need a necklace so she can show off her enviable decolletage. Here is one actress who is hanging on to her looks very well and does not appear to be overdoing cosmetic treatments, unlike Angelina Jolie who despite being 10 years her junior, has become scrawny, sinewy and frankly, a little strange to look at.

If you’re looking to recreate Joely Richardson’s glamourous look on a smaller scale, check out Max Studio UK for designer dresses. There are still some sale items left!

Dress to add to my wishlist

Posted on January 13, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

I’ve been having a look around for designer dresses as I’m looking for some lovely additions to my 2010 wardrobe.

I’ve come across this gorgeous little dress from Max Studio UK.

Yes, it is £150 but the details are just wonderful. The dress is made of silk chiffon and would skim any girl’s curves beautifully. The beading around the neck really draws the eye in and I can’t wait to try it on!

I’m really excited about this dress because I can see me wearing it out for an evening event I have to go to with Hubby next month. I’ve got a sequinned blazer and some fab diamante drop earrings that should make me look like a million dollars!

There are loads of other new items on the website that look like they will be absolute must-haves so I’ll keep you updated on my clothes lust!
