Dita Von Teese in Jenny Packham at British Fashion Awards: awesome or awful?

These are photos from last night’s British Fashion Awards, held in London. I actually really like this event – I guess it’s comparable to the American CFDAs, only I feel like the British Fashion Awards are more rock ‘n roll, and less stuffy. Let’s start with Dita Von Teese, shall we? Dita wore this fantastic Jenny Packham gown which I absolutely adore. You know what a sucker I am for a well-cut long-sleeved gown, and I love this. It suits Dita too.

Amber Valetta was one my favorite ladies of the evening – I love her and I love this gown. Yes, it’s kind of nipply, but she pulls it off without looking too trashy. I love the color!

Rita Ora in Vivienne Westwood. We’ve seen this dress many different times (in different colors), to varying results. Rita’s body looks good, but her face tells me that she’s not comfortable. Perhaps it’s the corseted waist?

Lily Allen was another one of my favorites – this maternity gown looks amazing on her, and it’s the perfect color and cut. She’s looks happy and healthy. I hope all is well with her.

Cara Delivigne won “Model of the Year”. I wouldn’t have been able to pick her out of a lineup. And that Burberry minidress is… interesting. I’m surprised Kristen Stewart hasn’t worn it yet.

And because it’s something of a running joke around here, here’s Stella McCartney picking up her award for Designer of the Year. THIS IS WHAT SHE WORE. Her own design, of course. Because WHY NOT wear a faux-wrap, strapless, bejeweled, tapered-legged jumpsuit? Because of course.

  1. But, but, but … wtf? It’s a wrap, its a pants… my brain, it’s boiling.
    Also, preggers Lily = the cutest thing ever!

    Stella McC wins it for craziest damned thing I have ever seen on a human body.

  3. Mew says:

    Dita, quite goth but in a very nice way. Seems to miss something to maybe soften the look just a bit, but I like it this way too.

    However, Stella McCartney is HORRID. How is this woman in any way related to fashion? She’s a disaster.

    I like Dita’s dress, she’s giving me a Morticia vibe though..

    And WTF is Stella wearing? I don’t understand, it looks like her crotch is hanging to her knees!?! she looks like she laid on a pc of fabric and had someone roll her up, like a really bad burrito..

  5. Ann says:

    Dita is gorgeous, although she does look a little too “Elvira, mistress of the dark” here.

    But Stella? Oh dear. This is not selling your talents, doll.

  6. the original bellaluna says:

    Why was Dita not cast by Lifetime as Elizabeth? Could they not afford her?

    The ones before and after Lily look like straight-up trash.

    Pregnancy really suits Lily. I hope she and her baby are healthy, and she certainly looks happy!

    Don’t even get me started on Stella. How someone who is supposed to be designing fashion-forward clothing for others can step out looking so consistently amazingly bad is beyond me.

  7. Becky says:

    Cara’s mini dress is perfect, though I would pair it with different shoes. ditta’s gown is not good, I’m getting Michael Jackson vibes.

  8. Micki says:

    I like all dresses, just the last girl looks like a blond Wednesday Adams.

  9. Bonnie says:

    Stella looks like she is wearing a big pair of pants!

  10. Effy says:

    OMG! Stella’s dress just murdered me!!
    what the HELL?!?!?

    Dita is gorgeous and I really like her dress, I would have loved it, if it was the bottom was straight cut.
    Stella McClusterfuck looks like she is wearing a big black trash bag.
    Love Cara´s mini dress, yeah she is not outstanding, but most really in demand models aren´t, I read she is being launched as the next Kate Moss, ugh.
    Rita Ora is beautiful, but dress would have been better in a darker blue.
    I´m kind of meh about Amber Valetta´s dress.

    Dita is beautiful as always. Love Amber Valetta & Lily Allen (turned my boyfriend on to her music, which he now loves). Does Stella McCartney not own a mirror? Guess she doesn’t need a stylest since she’s such a great designer. Ugh, can’t stand her.

  13. Wif says:

    The model of the year looks like she can barely stand.

  14. Christina says:

    I admire Stella’s anti-cruelty stances with her personal life and her professional life as well..but…her clothes are often quite ugly. I want to like her stuff, but it is rare that I do. Also anything that is available for purchase to the regular public is way overpriced. I am pretty sure she gets by on her last name.

  15. Steph says:

    Stella reminds me of those YouTube videos of kids dancing with their arms in their sweatpants.

  16. Jen says:

    Dita Von Teese = Awful. Always.

    Everyone else looks great except for Stella McCartney. What is that crap she is wearing? Just remember, she gets more money than I could ever dream of for designing this mess!

  17. taxi says:

    The only dress I like is Amber’s, but her hairdo isn’t good. Rita’s dress looks like it’s about to fall down & Cara’s runway-eyebrows are ott. As others said, Dita looks very Morticia-Elvira-Vampira, which for me translates to yuck.

  18. Mara says:

    Dita is so unique such a beautiful lady and she have an amaizing sense of style.

  19. jenny piccolo says:

    Dita Von Teese = a cross between Morticia Addams & Lucille Ball.

  20. KellyinSeattle says:

    I like Dita Von Tess; she’s unique, not the typical Hollywood patsie or wannabee model. Stella McBarfey, not thanks.

  21. meh says:

    I’m confused over all the fawning over Dita. She’s a stripper and a porn star. Uh… how it that considered classy?

  22. MB says:

    Dita. Ugh. Enough of this trick, already. That said, her dress is perfection.

    Rita Ora looks good but her boobs are enormous!!

    Stella looks ridiculous. Cant believe she was awarded designer of the year. WTF was the criteria for winning such a thing anyway?
