Women of the Year Dress to Impress!

November 13, 2009

Earlier this week saw the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Woman of the Year Awards being held and as this is one of the biggest events of the year for the women of the celebrity world we knew we were in for a treat in the fashion department. With so many famous women, with ready access to designer clothing, all in the same place at the same time we knew we would not be disappointed, and we were right. Everyone there was dressed to impress, and for the most part impress they did!

There was a wide range of famous faces there, all of varying ages and all from different corners of the celebrity world. So we saw a range of styles and tastes reflected in the clothes they wore. However, a common theme that ran throughout the evening was black dresses. A long list of celebrities including Pixie Lott, Fearne Cotton, Holly Willoughby and Dannii Minogue opted for a black dress, and who can blame them as a little black dress never fails to impress. Although it was Fearne Cotton’s LBD which made the biggest impact, she went for a Darling dress, and to be fair it wasn’t the dress that wowed us. Rather it was the way in which she styled and accessorised it, and added her only little quirky style to it. She teamed the LBD with a pair of Vivienne Westwood leggings to create a real impact. This particular choice made her outfit pop and stand out from all the others and whilst the whole ensemble reflected her fun and contemporary sense of style it was still extremely elegant and suited the occasion brilliantly.

However, it has to be said that it was Sarah Brown, the prime minister’s wife, who stole the show as a result of her outfit. Not used to seeing Mrs Brown in anything other than her extremely conservative attire when on duty at events the press went crazy for her. In the past Mrs. Brown has been dubbed dowdy and boring by the media when her sense of style was compared to other world leader’s wives such as Michelle Obamma or Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, but at this particular event she proved them all wrong in their assumption of her. She wore a beautiful floor length, slightly revealing, dress by Catherine Deane, in a shade of green which suited her English Rose complexion beautifully.

In a room full of fashionistas who are featured in glossy magazines on a weekly basis Mrs. Brown should be very that she pipped them all to the post in the style stakes. She truly has proved her sense of style.
