Salma Hayek in Stella McCartney at British Fashion Awards: terrible or cute?

Here are more photos from last night’s British Fashion Awards in London. I’m splitting the pics up into two groups at random, so just sit back and enjoy! Salma Hayek was on hand to present the Designer of the Year Award to Stella McCartney, and Salma was one of several women wearing Stella’s terrible designs. Before I realized Salma’s tasseled monstrosity was designed by Stella, I was already thinking to myself, “Why does Salma do this? Why doesn’t she say ‘no’ to designers who put her in dresses that make her look like this?” For the record, Salma is NOT this… this “thick” looking in most clothes. But you wouldn’t know it because of the awful dress. You know why? PEPLUM FRINGE. As in, the dress has a fringed peplum. The f—k?

I thought poor Gemma Arterton was Lana del Rey! RIGHT? Poor Gemma is in Stella McCartney too, but you already knew that because the outfit is so awful and poorly made and unflattering. Poor Gemma. She’s so pretty, she doesn’t deserve this.

I don’t hate Livia Firth’s dress. I actually think it’s a beautiful color for a woman with her coloring. And if you’re going to wear what is basically an oversized sack, it helps if you’re built like Livia – tall and thin.

Alexa Chung won some kind of style award – like, she’s the most stylish British woman or something. I really don’t get it, Great Britain. I do not understand why Alexa is a “thing”.

Princess Beatrice was there! She wore Erdem. It’s kind of fussy for someone so young, but she looks pretty overall.

Here’s Pixie Geldof (daughter of Bob Geldof; sister of Peaches Geldof)… Pixie usually has some kind of cropped peroxide blonde hair, so she looks very different here. I actually really like this look on her. She’s a “model” by the way.

    All the celebrities who wear Stella’s creations look bad. When they don’t look bad it’s because the dress is a copycat of someone else Calvin Klein 90′s gowns for example.
    If Stella McCartney wasn’t Paul’s daughter she would not even design Armani’s underwear.

    no, Salma looks horrible. the length makes her legs look short and stocky, and don’t even get me started on the tassles.. my eyeballs are genuinely offended..

    I love Gemma Atherton but.. why? I want to burn those shoes..

    I like the color of Livia’s dress but that’s it.. she is so pretty but doesn’t look it here..

    And I agree on Alexa Chung, who TF is she? The only one I really like the look of is Pixie, she’s cute..

    wow, I sound kinda bitchy this morning. I’m going to get some caffeine..

  3. dorothy says:

    Eww, ewww, ewww to all of them.

  4. Stella is just awful, huh? Sheesh. I adore Pixie here and I adore that she and her sister have teeny frufru puppy names, love. I don’t understand the blue sack but want it for my wife’s Christmas party, looks like i could love all the food and no one would be the wiser!

    In my opinion Great Britain is unconvinced by Alexa Chung, but the fashion people seem to love her. I am yet to understand what she does, why she is here, or who thinks she is so stylish.

    • Amelia says:

      I’m completely baffled as to why she is a ‘thing’.
      I think (once upon a time) she had a radio show … Ah, a quick google says she was scouted as a model when she was 16 and presented a TV show on Channel 4 for a bit.

      • stellalovejoydiver says:

        I think initially she was relevant for being a MTV host and mainly for dating Alex Turner(Arctic Monkeys), then somehow attended the right events in the right clothes, got featured in fashion magazines and she became an It-girl.
        Her style is a little bit too quirky for my taste, though.

    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      “I am yet to understand what she does, why she is here, or who thinks she is so stylish” = defintion of an It-girl.
      Same with Olivia Palermo.

      • Dani says:

        Olivia Palermo worked for Diane Von Furtsenberg and now works at Elle. She guest judged on Project Runway and ANTM. She’s a known model and was on 3-5 covers, designed a shoe for charity for Stuart Weitzman, she’s very active in the charity circle in NYC even before she became known, and she’s the face of a Spanish jewelry collection. She was also on The City. (I knew most of this, Wiki told me the rest.)

      • stellalovejoydiver says:

        Thanks, I didn´t know this, to me she was mainly an It-girl. I even saw a few episodes of The City, but I completly forgot about it.
        I think she is gorgeous and has a great style.

  6. spinner says:

    Salma looks really wide awake & fresh in the face. However, the dress is a disaster. No one looks good here.

  7. pretty says:

    Princess Beatrice person looks so scary. wtf.
    those eyes..O_O

  8. Kiki says:

    Salma Hayek: She tries too hard to look like Audrey Hepburn. Moreover her fringes around the dress look like straightened back and chest hair.

    Gemma Arterton: Who?

    Livia Firth: Is she preggo or why did she put a circus tent on herself?

    Alexa Chung: Wow. Just Wow. Every piece of clothing looks so cool on Alexa.. It looks easy and never too try hard like others… Those shoes! I want those shoes!

    Princess Beatrice: A grandmother misses her dress.


  9. G says:

    Salma looks like Gypsy Rose Lee.

    Livia looks like the chic mom at the famers market and Gemma looks like she’s selling home made organic jam at it.

  10. Filter Free Jenny says:

    This is off topic, but these fashion posts always bring it to light.

    The ads on the pictures are making me nuts.

    That is all.

  11. Jegede says:

    This tassles thing seems to get reworked every season?
    We had Cheryl Cole wear a Lee Mcqueen one, Blake Livley wear a Marchesa version and now Stella M is doing it.
    I love Salma but – NO! It looked infinteley better on the model. I know runway does not often translate to red carpet but the model looked practically a different specimen in it. To the rubbish bins.

  12. poppy says:

    they have been trying to make alexa chung a thing for years now. everything she’s done in the states has bombed. i should love her, seems cool, isn’t cookie cutter but she grates my every last nerve. don’t know if it is because she dated alex turner, or used to pose sucking her thumb all the damn time, tries too hard or a combination of those.

    someone needs to get stella a seat.

  13. SmokeyBlues says:

    Salma has no neck in that pic. Not a single one if these outfits impresses me, most are just awful.
    Stella is like that story “The Emperor’s New Clothes” in which everyone could see that the Emperor was naked but no one wanted to say. In this case Stella’s clothes are a travesty but no one wants to say it and everyone plays along!

    • MaiGirl says:

      I think you hit the nail on the head. Stella was A THING before she had really accomplished much at all, solely due to her last name. Celebrity dynasties go almost unquestioned in Hollywood, it seems. I have never gotten her “designs” at all, since that first show with a skirt that had an creepy floating horse’s head round the crotch. I don’t want and unpleasant reminder of the Godfather’s retribution on my lap, thanks. What kills me most is that everything she designs is SO UNFLATTERING to a woman’s body. She makes everyone look wider, saggier, and dumpier than they actually are. Starlets need to understand that Stella hates them.

  14. Christina says:

    Are people afraid to admit that Stella M’s designs are fug because her dad is one the the greatest musical geniuses to ever grace the planet?? I suppose that could be it. It is unfortunate though that she is being coddled into thinking her clothes are attractive. Those tassles are horrific and the fit is off. Salma is so beautiful why would she keep wearing these horrid designs?? Cmon, Stella, I will give you the benefit of the doubt. Stop phoning it in and live up to your last name!! I know it has to be hard to be the child of someone as legendary and amazing as Sir Paul…but no one is asking you to be as good as him in his chosen profession, just make clothes that are not hideous!

  15. erin says:

    every single one of them looks terrible. what a joke that all of these pictures were from an actual “fashion” award event.

  16. WendyNerd says:

    Anne Hathaway wore this months ago—- Salma’s husband pretty much owns the fashion industry so why is she wearing things already worn by other actresses?

  17. KellyinSeattle says:

    Salma looks like a car wash.

  18. aston martin says:

    Alexa Chung does that one-off style thing soooo well. You know, like “put on a normal outfit, take off shoes and put on clashing ones: remove purse, carry wacky one; wear hair like you did nothing to it- it just happens that way.”

    Ugh. Also, I don’t think she tells the truth about being naturally stick skinny, and that bothers me because she is featured on a ton of “thinspiration” sites as a body role model for anorexic/bulimic girls.

  19. abby says:

    I already knew it was terrible before clicking because it’s a Stella McCartney. did she win the birth lottery or what? she would never make a dime on any of these disastrous duds otherwise.

  20. andy says:

    Want to see fashion designing that Britain can be proud of? Buy the book Alexander McQueen:Savage Beauty.

  21. Apples says:

    Wow. A whole lot of bad here. Especially, Stella’s dress on Salma and Gemma’s confusing choice of shoes.

  22. lylaooo says:

    WTF with princess beatrice eyess!!! hahahah is she scared or surpriced…or ready to eat people!! ?? like a zombiee

  23. truthful says:

    Beatrice’s eyes are horrible to me, I jumped…

    and then the clothes never improved as I scrolled down, that’s sad.

    I think Pixie looks MUCH better, she looks pulled together now.

  24. Maria says:

    Alexa Chung is like a fashion ‘it girl’ over here in England, I am definitely not feeling this AC-love. I think she always looks dated/granny-ish/scruffy/a massive fashion fail to me.
    I don’t understand, truly. Maybe the whole hipster-vibe is getting to me, that and she’s just far too skinny, it looks unhealthy.

    • Nina says:

      Yep, the hipster thing annoys me too… probably cuz it makes me feel old. Even so, I still think Alexa Chung usually looks like an idiot in her ridiculously ‘unstaged’ get-ups. She looks better here than I’ve ever seen her… outside of the photo shoots she did as a model. She can really look gorgeous when other people style her, btw

  25. Janet says:

    Never mind the dress – what’s up with Salma’s face? She doesn’t quite look like herself – more pretty but less gorgeous

  26. Vera says:

    STELLA!!!! Those fugly designs make me want to scream.
