Red Carpet Rundown: The 2013 Elle Style Awards

Screen Shot 2013-02-12 at 11.06.54 AM

After the red carpet dystopian wasteland that was yesterday’s Grammys scramble–and the subsequent mad dash to give the BAFTAs their due–the Elle Style Awards went and took place! That was very selfish of them. Anyway, there were some famous people, some so-called “style icons,” some supermodels and some nobodies in weird clothes. Let’s have a look…

Kate Hudson Kate Hudson looks stiff and uncomfortable in her weird red dress.

Elle Style Awards - Red Carpet ArrivalsSuki Waterhouse is one of those nebulous It Girls. She dresses like a fashion blogger.

Roksanda Ilincic Designer Roksanda Ilincic wore a very big skirt and a very big collar.

Elizabeth Olsen Elizabeth Olsen wore a very expensive version of the outfit we wore everyday in high school. So: two big thumbs up.

Rosamund Pike Rosamund Pike‘s pants fit nicely! She looks nice.

Kendra SpearsModel Kendra Spears wore an ugly dress and her hair was weird. We don’t understand how this happened.

Andrea Riseborough WE star Andrea Riseborough wore feathers and statement shoes because this is the red carpet where stylists get to follow their most self-indulgent whims.

Alicia Vikander For example. Don’t you just imagine some TV stylist stepping back from Alicia Vikander‘s look and saying, “Now it just needs a pop! of! color!” (dramatic pause) “I’ve got it. Yellow shoes.”

Daisy Lowe Daisy Lowe‘s full skirt makes the outfit feel like way more of a mess. The intentionally mussy fishtail isn’t helping.

 Peaches Geldof Peaches Geldof is pregnant and wearing it very well. Like her hair, her pink dress.

Arizona Muse

Arizona Muse wore statement shoes and a statement necklace with her statement cocktail dress.

Kristen McMenamy

Kristen McMenamy wore leather pants and booties and an Alexander McQueen knuckle duster clutch and her perfect gray hair and holy shit she’s cool.

Chloe Moretz Chloe Moretz wore that now-ubiquitous Marc Jacobs collection and a Chanel clutch. She looked cute, like always.

 Amanda de CadenetTV personality Amanda de Cadenet also got talked into some Fashion Clashing.

aura HaddockWe’re not sure who Laura Haddock is but her petal pink jumpsuit fits her nicely!

Samantha BarksIt’s distracting how the neckline of Samantha Barks is like a boob frame.

Zawe Ashton We’ve entered the territory where we have to Google everyone in attendance. Zawe Ashton is an English actress and playwright in a very bad dress.

isa SnowdonLisa Snowdon is a former model, best known stateside for being George Clooney‘s piece. As our commenters have been noting a lot lately, we’re all sick of nude/beige pumps with everything in the absence of a better idea.

Pixie Geldof

Pixie Geldof wore a tunic with pants. It’s probably Chanel, if that changes anything.

      I can’t tell whether Kate Hudson’s flowery panel is sheer. If so, no. If not, cool!

        Zoomed into the high res. Looks like a yes.

    • Izzy Ruiz

      HAHAHAHA HUHLARIOUS commentary I. Die.

      I actually like Daisy Lowe’s dress and also Lisa Snowdon’s. But agree with the nude pumps. Also does it look like Arizona and Pixie are wearing the same statement shoes?

      • Ashley Cardiff

        I think Daisy Lowe is a babe but the dress looks took cartoonish to me, too costume-y. But! Fair enough.

        As for the shoes… I noticed that too! They are absolutely the same.

    • Cee

      Alicia Vikander is wearing the same dress Taylor Swift is wearing in the Elle magazine you wrote about. So, Taylor Swift must be wearing Alicia’s white shoes!

      Also, it baits the question…do YOU dress like Suki Waterhouse?

      And, if girls dressed like Elizabeth Olsen in high school, I was clearly doing something VERY wrong :/

      • Ashley Cardiff

        I dress like the opposite of a fashion blogger! So, no. Although I do love prints (and ugly things), as you can see in our Wed Bed Dead videos.

        I dressed like Elizabeth Olsen in high school (but the mall clothes equivalent) and I thought I looked very chic and edgy. Teenagers are dumb.

      • Cee

        Hah I have seen, you dress lovely.

        I think I have the “mall clothes equivalent” of some of the stuff she’s wearing. I think I’m catching up to high school you

      I actually like Flower Lowe’s outfit and also Lisa Snowdon’s. But believe the fact with the naked pushes. Also does it look like Phoenix and Pixie are dressed in the same declaration shoes? Party Dresses Casual Dresses
