Best and Worst Dressed at the BRIT Awards 2015

Best Dressed 

Marina Diamandis 
Channeling true Hollywood glamour, I adored Marina's heavily embellished gown with flattering, plunging neckline and mint green fur throw to accompany it. Favourite look of the night! 

Daisy Lowe
What a vixen! Velvet is perennial and the star used it to her advantage with the dress being gathered at her waist, accentuating her curves. 

Jessie Ware
Although her actual dress to the event was disappointing, her outfit before got me really excited. I love how Jessie playfully layered different plaids. 

Fearne Cotton
Although she will be leaving Radio 1, I do hope to carry on seeing Fearne Cotton's style. Always impeccably dressed, this muted mini looked fabulous on her, completed with dustings of gold on her accessories. 

Paloma Faith
Wowzers, I'm always impressed with singer Paloma Faith's kooky style,  this seemed slightly toned down, but still stunning. Sprinkled with metallic red detailing, the soft tulle dress suited her curves.

Lianne La Havas
Adpoting the crispest whites this season, it was all about sports luxe dressing when it came to Lianne La Havas' outfit. 

Caroline Flack
Who doesn't love a bit of oxblood leather? Caroline Flack looked ravishing in her red mini, complete with her iconic lob and some simply strappy stilettos. 

FKA Twigs
Bow down to trend-setter FKA Twigs! I adore her risqué strapped top and tie-print skirt, layered with trousers for a subtle nod to the '90s. 

Rita Ora
A new found elegance washed over Rita Ora during the BRIT's as she donned Roberto Cavalli for the occasion. 

Cara Delevingne 
Harry Styles is that you?! Model Cara Delevingne seemed to be channeling her ex-boyfriend in Saint Laurent. Chic nonetheless!

Little Mix 
Glam squad alert! These ladies have gone from strength to strength over the years and this has to be my favourite look to date!

Worst Dressed

Taylor Swift
A lot of people may have loved Swifty's dragon, but I hated it. It reminded me more of a '90s tattoo than something I would wear on a dress! 

Charli XCX
I usually love everything Charli XCX wears but I was sorely disappointed at her monochrome decision. Although it was risqué, I felt it didn't suit her. 

Fleur East
How dull is Fleur East's draped gown? YAWN.

Best and Worst Dressed at the Oscars 2015

Another year, more amazing gowns...

Best Dressed

Emma Stone
Amongst the 200 Oscars images I scoured through, Emma Stone's dress was my ultimate favourite. A trail of zesty lime green, the heavily embellished gown perfectly suited the actresses complexion.

Keira Knightley
Owning maternity style, the beautiful Keira Knightly stepped out in an exquisite Valentino piece of cascading nude tulle finished with subtle floral detailing. 

Lady Gaga
Queen of pop Lady Gaga re-invented herself on the red carpet with a crisp white gown, princess-like in proportions. Always willing to make a statement, she finished the outfit with fiery red gloves. 

Margot Robbie
We've been in love with her since her breakthrough role in Wolf of Wall Street, as Margot Robbie wore Saint Laurent with pride on Sunday night, accessorising the draped piece with intricate, tasseled jewellery.

Jennifer Lopez
Wowzers! Covered in cappuccino-coloured tulle, this Ellie Saab gown is stunning. Jennifer Lopez, what a great choice! 

Rita Ora 
I adore Rita Ora's style, and this silky midnight blue Marchesa gown is no exception. The fish tale element accentuated her figure and the dress was finished with pretty dustings of gold. 

Sienna Miller
What a Queen. How AH-Mazing does Sienna Miller look in Oscar De La Renta? Those cheekbones.

Rosamund Pike
Opting for a fiery red, actress Rosamund Pike might have chosen to wear the same colour as the carpet, but she did far from blend in. I loved this piece and with a simple up do and subtle, strappy stilettos, all attention was on her gown.

Tegan Quin & Sara Quin
Proving that the red carpet isn't all about embellished frocks, Tegan and Sara got extra androgyny points for their masculine ensembles. Loving that slicked-back hair ladies!  

How CUTE were Eddie Redmayne and Hannah Bagshawe? In matching midnight blue, I loved Bagshawe's feathered belt and skull details on her dress. 

Cate Blanchett
On it's own, this dress may have been dull, but Blanchett cleverly teamed it with a chunky teal necklace. Exquisite. 

Worst Dressed

Kelly Osbourne
Ugh. When is Kelly Osbourne going to stop making 'goth' happen? Her dress was unflattering and her pastel hair looks more Dot Cotton than Dolce & Gabbana. 

Chloe Moretz
Oh lordy, Chloe Moretz looks as if she stepped out a period drama, but not in the good way. The faded florals are drab, and for such a skinny lady, the thick waist is unflattering. 

Chrissy Teigen
Wow, I think All of Me hates this dress. Mrs Legend donned a rather been-there-done-that design in duck egg blue. 

Naomi Watts
Miss Watts' meagre attempt to look edgy in Armani failed with the gown's bandeau-esque attachment underneath. Yuck!

Nicole Kidman
Although I love all things iridescent, Nicole Kidman's outfit fell flat for me - the red belt and chunky bag seemed out of place. 

Karolina Kurkova
How dull can dusky pink get? Kurkova's choice was shapeless and lacked any character, a no-go for me. 

Ethan Hawke and Ryan Hawke 
Is it just me, or do these guys look super awks?!

Adam Levine & Behati Prinsloo
Does it look a little like i'm picking on couples here? Oh well.. Adam Levine didn't stop with his PDA's on the Oscars red carpet, and Behati's red embellished gown fell flat for me. The 'do did nothing to flatter her ears either..
