On the Scene: The 2014 BRIT Awards

Ready for the next awards show? The 2014 BRIT Awards went down tonight in London with a slew of musicians and models in attendance. The looks varied from bright and sultry to menswear-inspired, with this season’s hottest trends being captured at every turn.

Check out the night’s most memorable looks:

Rita Ora and Calvin Harris are an exceptional-looking couple, thus I was happy to see them walk the red carpet together! Rita’s neon yellow Prada gown was mesmerizing.

Pharrell Williams and his wife Helen Lasichanh were suited up yet again this week. Hot, though I would’ve loved to see Helen smile: I mean Pharrell is your husband!

Rebecca Ferguson served curves in a white mesh inset dress and bold accoutrements. Work Rebecca!

I always enjoy a style moment from Tinie Tempah and he did not disappoint in cream and black tones.

It’s been awhile since I’ve seen Nicole Scherzinger out and about! I liked the way her gold studded Giuseppe Zanotti harness uplifted her cropped leather bustier top and trousers.

Iggy Azalea pared down her hair and makeup to let her fiery red Elie Saab gown with sheer insets play centerstage. She looked fab no?

I loved Jessie J’s Julien Macdonald jumpsuit, but the lilac lipstick wasn’t working for me. I do commend her on being fashion-forward though!

I loved the texture cutie Marvin Humes added to a simple black suit.

Neon Jungle always has the best hair! The edgy girl group made a statement in a slew of trends including a sultry bustier top, statement necklaces, sheer insets, and more.

Songstress Lianne La Havas gave some pizazz to a sheer off-the-shoulder dress with bold accessories.

Laura Mvula showed off her enviable stems in a waterfall hem number with tulle ruffle trim.

Aluna Francis of AlunaGeorge was pretty in pink in a sheer blouse, bustier crop top, and asymmetrical hem skirt from Antonio Berardi.

I think it’s accurate to say that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley slayed on the red carpet in a zebra stripe sequin mini dress with bow detailing from Saint Laurent’s Spring 2014 collection. Hot!

Ellie Goulding opted for princess chic in a Vivienne Westwood ball gown. I’m usually a sucker for Ellie’s style choices, but this wasn’t my cup of tea.

Lily Allen’s two-tone hair and sequin gown were winners for the night in my book!

Daisy Lowe showed some thigh in a Sister by Sibling Fall 2014 gown that channeled dark romance.

Songstress Pixie Lott’s DKNY white halter gown with a thigh-high slit was simple and chic no?

Sisters Dannii and Kylie Minogue looked fab in fun yet sexy spins on the LBD.

Normally, I’m on board with Myleene Klass’s looks, but I’m unsure of what to make of her cutout Mark Fast dress here.

One Direction was there! Harry’s hair slicked back…the verdict is still out on that.

Which ensemble caught your eye for the night?

Angelina Jolie To Be Awarded Humanitarian Oscar

celebs 13Angelina Jolie will be presented with an Oscar for her humanitarian work. The 38-year-old actress will be awarded the honorary Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award is presented “to an individual in the motion picture industry whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry”, according to a press release from the Academy.

In a press release, on 5th September, from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Jolie was highly praised for being “an impassioned advocate for humanitarian causes, traveling widely to promote organizations and social justice efforts such as the Prevent Sexual Violence Initiative. The release went on to reference Jolie’s philanthropic exploits relating to her work with the Council of Foreign Relations and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). The Academy also commended her appointment to her position as “Special Envoy of High Commissioner António Guterres in 2012 after twelve years of service” to the UNHCR.  The Academy also commented on her film projects which highlight humanitarian issues, including A Mighty Heart and In the Land of Blood and Honey.

Jolie responded to the release publically; she wrote on twitter thanking the academy for the award and congratulated her fellow winners Angela Lansbury, Steve Martin and Piero Tosi on being award governor awards.

The awards will be presented on November 16th at the Academy’s 5th Annual Governors Awards. Only 34 Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Awards have been presented, previous winners include Oprah Winfrey, Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn.
