Sometimes even the most fashion-forward stars take a step backwards and that was certainly the case at this year´s Brit awards.
Here at EWN, we think that British stars should take a leaf out of their ever stylish Spanish counterparts. Seriously, with months of planning and stylists on hand to quiff and sculpt at their every demand, what were the stars at this year´s Brit awards thinking? Like an assortment of liquorice allsorts, these treats weren´t quite as sweet to look at, and leading the field in designer faux-pas´ was the Brit brigade.
Let’s jump straight in with ex pop sensation turned Cowell X-factor disciple – Cheryl Fernandez-Versini who donned an acid yellow corset dress. Far from understated glamour, this dress looked like aunty Agatha´s attempt at fashioning her old, smoked stained,net curtains into an outfit for next year´s panto season.
Jess Glynne must have hired Cheryl´s very same mutinous fashion stylist as she stepped onto the red carpet ready to audition for the latest leprechaun movie. The red-head was only missing a green top hat to complete the dazzling green suit.
With an amazing body to show off, Abby Clancy spared no expense when rummaging down her local market for the perfect figure hugging, disco-diva mini dress. If you told me the outfit came with a free pair of shoes and a glitterball I´d believe you. Plus since when are dark tights and open toe sandals a good idea? A match made in exposed seam heaven.
Geri Halliwell looked set to talk property prices at a local estate agent conference or perhaps she was harking back to her days of glory in the Spice Girls, an altogether scarily unimaginative body-con dress.
Annie Mac’s head-to-toe rainbow gown turned heads for all the wrong reasons. The DJ looked like she´d asked for fashion advice from a bunch of retired dinner ladies.
And finally let´s not forget the boys. We all know that Blur’s Alex James now lives on a farm and shuns the glittering celebrity lifestyle but this drab tweed suit looked like he was actively trying to look as unappealing as possible. We get it! You’ve thrown on your retired farmer attire and asked mum to cut your hair with the trusty old bowl. Crazy hipster.
