Baftas, Brits and a Bonkers woman in an egg...

So awards season is sprinting to a close and as the Baftas, Grammys and Brits are all in the same week I thought I would smoosh them together in one big blog like a metaphorical mess of a dress that Lady Gaga might wear.

Fashion-wise it wasn't a mind blowing affair (I hate to say it but the buzz over the pond always seems to bring out more interesting attire)

However, Eva Green rocked a pretty good impression of a slightly less curvy Dita Von Tesse in Tom Ford.

Noomi Repace (she of the dragon tattoo) made a bold statement, in some gold, sequin belted zip fronted car crash.

Tracy Emin - WORST DRESSED When I first saw this picture I wasn't even certain a) this was a woman and b) she wasn't having a stroke when she got dressed/did her hair.

Thandie Newton - Monique Lhuillier BEST DRESSED. This pains me as after seeing this woman interviewed I hate to congratulate people that have had their personalities swapped for that of a plastic spoon, but the dress was incredible.

In the US of A the Grammys were underway and though it's this red carpet that has been the place to be a little daring, with the addition of Lady Gaga over the past few years it seems there has been a free for all in the fashion department and why the heck not?

The woman herself didn't disappoint and, due to possibly watching too much retro TV, turned up in something that looked a lot like how Mork arrived on our planet. Rumour has it she'll walk the next red carpet as the love child of Bungle and Zippy from Rainbow and then take to the stage in a dress made purely of tambourines and cuckoo spit.

Nicky Minaj (or Minga as I always want to say) - Givenchy WORST DRESSEDNicky's leopard outfit and wig are fine to wear, if you're a fucking moron. Get a grip girl, Halloween was so four months ago. Shame cos I actually quite like her music (or that one song I've heard so far).

Nicole Kidman - John Paul Gaultier - BEST DRESSED
Proof you can wear JPG and still look amazing, the autumnal colours and cut of her floral gown worked a treat and even gave her few curves.

Rhianna - John Paul Gaultier.Proof that JPG has at least 2 personalities designing simultaneously in that head of his. Love that she's got a bit of meat on her but hate that she's trying so hard to be 'edgy'.

Dianna Agron, Vivienne Westwood.
Loving the rock chick make-up and hair, and the black satin bustier was so flattering, would have been a killer look if the skirt was hitched to just a tad above the knee though.

Fashionwise again, it was a bit flat but if they will allow the monkeys from 'The Only Way is Essex' to walk the red carpet they can't expect to be taken all that seriously.

Strangely our US friend's have won my respect by deciding not to inflate the ego of that twat Bieber any more by giving the Grammy for Best New Artist to Esparanza Spalding. We, I am sickened to report, decided to bow to the bribes Usher must have splashed out and awarded him Best International Breakthrough Artist -God help us all! Does he remind anyone else of all the worst parts of the children in Willy Wonker's Chocolate Factory? (I want a Brit award daddy!) Incidentally he gets the WORST DRESSED purely for his grumpy boring fashion sense and how much I dislike his attitude in general but he doesn't get a picture here, cos I hate him.

Adele sounded amazing but wore black as always. She does win the award for quote of the night for saying 'I'm 14 days clean (that's cigarettes, not smack!)'

Cheryl Cole did her best impression of a wax work model.

Rihanna - Christian Dior BEST DRESSED
Bit of a curve ball this one but the colours, cut, style and general 'happy' vibe of her outfit (including some rather fabulous bright blue Louboutins) was the clear winner for me.

Nearly there now guys, soon I'll have to think of something else to write about other than what people wear...

COMPLETELY agree with you re. Thandie Newton and Rihanna (at the BRITS). As soon as I saw both their outfits I practically swooned! Loving the bright, happy colour vibe!

Omg James Cordon stroking Justin Bieber had to be the most cringeworthy moment at the Brits! Totally let the side down.
Was Fearne Cotton wearing old car parts?
Loving JPG for Rhianna, is it made of cotton wool balls? V cute and agree her blue Louboutins are to die for!
