The Empire Awards 2011

Posted on April 16 2011

Earlier this week the stars were out once again in celebration of the Empire awards... does the season of star-spangled award ceremonies never end? (We don’t mind, it means more dresses to eye up!) A little bit more low-key than some of the events recently, this meant the outfits were more wearable and the make-up and hair more achievable. People’s favourite Kiera Knightley won the ‘Hero’ award while donning this sparkly nude Rodarte number. Although a little too frilly and fussy for me, she rocks this look with simple make-up and a sultry russled hair do. She could probably look good in a sack. Dermot O’Leary had the best accessory of the night – a pretty hot girlfriend. She had a hot accessory herself in the form of a Classic Chanel 2.55 bag, matched perfectly to her bold red lips. I love her dress too which is classic, while still being a bit edgy. She clearly knows what suits her and plays it safe so not to upstage her man.( Chanel 2.55 Available to buy now on HIGH-FASHION-SOCIETY.COM) Lily Cole looked smoking in this bright yellow Prada number. One of the key colours for the season, instead of washing out her pale skin it makes her stand out from the crowd and reinstate her fashion credentials. I love her cute styled hair too... That sparkly band makes her less ‘showgirl’ and more ‘boho’ and the dark shade suits her so much better than her natural red hair. Newly engaged Sarah Harding channelled the one-shouldered trend with this ruffled beauty. A little bit of lace, a little bit of velvet, a lot of fake tan and a slick of red lipstick... Who said blondes have more fun? She’s clearly embracing her darker hair colour and going for something a little classier than her usual backless bright number and I like it. Check out the glamorous dresses currently in stock on HFS – I can see Lily in this fabulous KaremKaren blue number:
