Make It Highstreet | Brit Awards 2013

Last week the Brits rolled into town highlighting all the awesomeness that is British music (plus a couple from over the pond). To be totally honest I wasn't amazed by the dresses on show. Of course there were a few beauties on show, Taylor Swift, for example, looked absolutely stunning in black paneled Elie Saab - I can't get over how much her style has matured in the last year! Jessie J took the plunge in a low cut Versace gown, a lot more demure than what we're used to seeing Jessie in, I liked it but I'm still a fan of her old trademark bob-and-fringe. I was a bit gutted really that so  many of the big names missed the mark with their dresses, Gemma Arterton, whose dresses I am usually drooling over, looked like she was getting ready for Comic Relief in a red, sequined Jonathan Saunders ensemble. More granny than glamour. Lana Del Rey also disappointed in a thoroughly dull number which I was amazed to discover was by Chanel - considering the amount of designers and stylists that must be lining up to dress this lady I don't understand how she ended up with such a boring dress. Lady of the evening, Emeli Sandé also fell short in a ruffled LBD, just a bit samey really. Not wanting to end on a negative note some ladies definitely brought the vavavoom! Jourdan Dunn worked those pins amazingly in a micro yellow mini from Balmain and Bérénice Marlohe looked every inch a Bond girl in Donna Karan - pure old school Hollywood!
