The Elle Style Awards: Who Wore What

Another morning, another set of red carpet dresses to pore over.

We heart awards season.

Today's subjects?  The fashion pack attending the 15th Elle Style Awards held at the Savoy in London last night.  While there was a fair overlap between the BAFTA and Elle Style Awards attendees, there was a marked difference in
the style being showcased last night to those on Sunday night at the BAFTAs.  While the BAFTAs were a very monochrome affair, last night was much more about spring's brights and patterns.  So without further ado, who wore what?

Rosie Huntington-Whitely
Picking-up the Elle Style Icon award last night, Rosie H-W showed exactly why she was worthy of the accolade in a silvery, sheer, caped, Antonio Beradi dress.

Christina Hendricks
She looked very va-va-voom at the BAFTAs in black Vivienne Westwood on Sunday night but last night Christina kept her famous assets under wrap in vintage Caroline Herrera.  While we understand that boobs of this proportion must be difficult to dress, we really don't think that high necked, Quality Street purple floral print is the way to go.  And don't even get us started on the leg o'mutton sleeves...

Tali Lennox
Tali wore a sheer Julien Macdonald dress with a train and intricate primrose yellow and moss green embroidery.  Much has been made of her wardrobe malfunction (she picked up the train and revealed her flesh-toned underwear).  Not enough has been written about how breathtakingly amazing she looked before that.  Not quite so keen on the serpent sleeves but the rest of the dress we love, love, love.

Christina Ricci
The Jonathan Saunders dress is very nice.  Black, long, sheer panels, meh, meh, meh.  We think the fringe looks a little Adams Family but we love the Dolce&Gabanna chandelier earrings.

Grace Woodward
We were taught when we were little that if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.  So with that in mind, we'll just remind you that this woman bills herself as a fashion stylist.   

Alexandra Roach
The Iron Lady actress wore Roksanda IIincic and looked very Edith Bowman at the BAFTAs but with Barbie lips and bag and a dated 'up-do'.  We're wondering whether Grace Woodward styled her (miaow).

Gillian Anderson
William Vintage strikes again... We thought the X Files star's BAFTAs look (vintage Sybil Connolly) was the best of a bad bunch of the William Vintage victims which included Edith Bowman and Hayley Atwell.  Last night Gillian was dressed again by William Vintage, this time in vintage Sarmi, to much worse effect.  We love an evening dress with pockets and we love that delicious pale daffodil yellow but the heavy satiny fabric, the bow back and the silhouette just look dated.

Jessica Chastain
She topped our best dressed list at the BAFTAs but last night Jessica Chastain's McQueen outfit just didn't quite do it for us.  We like the lace, perplum top but not paired with the mid-calf A-line skirt.  Had the skirt been pencil and leather we think this would have been a totally different, very hot story.

Alexa Chung
There's been lots of comment on Alexa's Stella McCartney grey tartan tux.  We don't love it, we don't hate it.  We think this style maven could have done better though.  Oh, and we HATE the bag.

Poppy Delevingne
Poppy rocked the red carpet in the exact Mary Katrantzou for Topshop dress that we want to get our hands on come Friday.  Race you to the tills...
