Brits vs Meteors Awards

It was double the fun for music and fashion lovers this week with the Brit Awards on Tuesday and the Meteor Irish Music Awards on Friday. The Brits had to brave the rain on a drenched outdoor red carpet while the Meteors had a slightly more glamorous indoor tent for arrivals (well it is Ireland and February, we have to be realistic!).

Lady Gaga at the Brits

It must be exhausting for Lady Gaga and her stylist to keep coming up with new shocking ideas but she did it again at The Brits! For the red carpet she wore a Francesco Scognamiglio overcoat and a headpiece by Irish designer Philip Tracey then stripped off to a white lace and barely there jumpsuit for her performance and speeches.

There was no one to rival her at the Meteors. The most adventurous being Amanda Byram who stuck to pretty dresses for presenting but her red carpet vintage Ungaro dress was a bit more risqué. It was a black, backless and side less and caused quite a stir, but not to the same level as Gaga.

Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine and Pixie Lott attended both events and kept their looks similar. Florence changed her outfit three times in total for both going from minidress to floor-sweeping. Her Zuhair Murad sparkly mindress on the Brits red carpet earned her a place on the best dressed lists for the night, and she let the dress do the talking with her signature red hair and no jewellery. Pixie Lott wore a gorgeous black lace Kate Halfpenny dress to the Brits and a similar black dress to the Meteors with her long hair loose and wavy.

Best dressed would have to go to Cat Deeley at the Brits, wearing a pre-Fall Matthew Williamson short black number and Jimmy Choos. Her LA tan and soft hairdo worked beautifully with the dress.

Alexandra Burke, also at the Brits, was not far behind with a glamorous Notte by Marchesa floor length gown in a shade of red that was made for her.

Kudos to Leona Lewis for taking a break from her usual full length Valentinos by opting for a metallic mini by British designer William Tempest and bright pink shoes! Read more about them here.

No Nos at the Brit Awards and Meteor Awards

Sadly, there were many non stylish outfits at both awards. The Brits had Kylie’s disappointing D&G gown and Lily Allen’s over detailed Chanel dress while the Meteors had TV star Virginia Macari in a full length pink sparkly gown.

Claudine Palmer at the Meteors wore a one shoulder Balmain dress – that would have been great if it wasn’t already worn by Abigail Clancy to the Brits only a few days earlier!

Overall though, two great nights of music, scandal, parties, fashion wonders and fashion blunders!
