The Teen Choice Awards held last weekend showcased many a trend from bright colour blocking, sophisticated monochrome to clean whites. However the biggest style statement came from the likes of Blake Lively, Tyra Banks and Elizabeth Banks who certainly toughened up the style credentials by hitting the Red Carpet in risqué leather…
Blake Lively sizzled at the Teen’s Choice Awards in an orange Gucci Resort 2012 leather mini. She teamed the dress with amazing leopard print Christian Louboutins pumps, bronze make-up and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery.
Tyra Banks cut a striking figure on the red (or should I say blue?) carpet in this Thierry Mulger leather catsuit. Describing her look as a “fierce bumble bee” on Twitter, the supermodels get up did have an air of super-hero chic to it. I’m not completely sold on the look but applaud Tyra for her bold and certainly not boring style.
Actress Elizabeth Banks wowed at the awards just 5 months after giving birth to her son Felix, wearing a fitted 2012 Resort J.Mendal dress to the awards. She Paired the look with fiery red lips to match her dress and nude peep-toe platforms.

A trend usually reserved for the festive party season has reappeared on the fashion radar early this year. Once a look favoured by Maureen at the office Christmas party (you know the one, a piece of mistletoe permanently in her hand, winking suggestively at the work experience boy) sequins featured heavily in the Spring Summer collections of Diane Von Furstenberg, Giorgio Armani and Just Cavalli.
All that glitters may not be gold, but all that sparkles is seriously sexy this season…
And where the catwalk and designers lead the celebs are sure to follow, here’s my top 3 dazzlingly dressed divas this week:
Jessie J is virtually unrecognisable out of her trademark leotard at the Glamour Women of the Year awards. With her enviable curves poured into this sparkling Dolce and Gabbana number, her slick, retro waves and feline flicks she’s every inch the sequined siren.
Our favourite royal is stunning in this rose sequined Jenny Packham gown she wore to attend the ARK charity gala event last week. She kept her accessories simple with a cute satin box clutch, LK Bennett heels and her signature bouncy blow-dry, allowing the dress to do the talking.
Leighton Meester ensures she’s the hot topic of conversation in this silver Balmain shift dress at the MTV Movie Awards. She also opted for minimal accessories and simple hair resulting in a shimmering stylish look.
