SFA 2011 fashionPosted: June 16, 2011
This year’s SFA (Scottish Fashion Awards) took place yesterday… and I am quite disappointed by the red carpet looks. I am honestly wondering if all fashion awards became suddenly unformal events somehow (and I missed that moment?!!)? Because it’s what you may feel after seeing outfits presented at CFDA and SFA galas.
Those are FASHION awards, so you might expect to see some spectacular outfits, right? No. But if you did, you are (like me) undoubtfully disappointed. We saw some great pieces – rarely. Mostly we witnessed women lost in the concept of those award shows, trying to look nice (and most of them succedded) but at the same time improper for the occasion (but it was already widely debated in the comments in CFDA post).
Here… I do love Tessa Harman’s dress and Hilary Alexander’s necklace, but their outfits in general – not so much. But then I think that Dame Shirley Bassey, Julia Hannah, Louise Linton (well, here, she might have overachieved the evening look 😉 ), Lulu, Nina Porter and Yasmin got it right 🙂
Dame Shirley Bassey: custom Graeme Black dress
