So the hype of the Brits has regrettably been and gone but nonetheless I still can’t stop thinking about the fashionably favored ensembles and the implicit Faux Pas of the ceremony. Meticulously searching for a way to replicate specific looks in assortment of high-street dupes.
The Recent BAFTAs, The prestigious Elle Awards and an abundance of Fashion Weeks has granted February a profoundly hectic month for the Elite Glitterati. A tapestry of trends and a mirage of emerging talent have inevitably raised the style stakes to a dramatic new level. In opposition of the latter events and occasions, The Brits boasts a more relaxed vibe with artistic influences and a rock roll edge that proves exceptional in surfacing more daring, audacious and undeniably fresh looks less suitable for the F-Row.
Backless dresses, deep plunges, unique silhouettes and exaggerated structuring were amid the red carpet presence for The Brits 2014 and contouring illustrated a little secret Shapewear…
Using the bold looks from The Brits red carpet appearances, I’m going to employ the quintessential Shapewear and lingerie models, optimal for their style and designs.
Vibrant colors, pastels and neon splashes are suggested to be the color equilibrium for spring summer and a tonal backdrop for the emerging trends. Rita Ora integrated a sumptuous shade of yellow into her plunging Prada gown, accented perfectly by jade and emerald embellishment to ensure an ‘all eyes on her’ kind of vibe. The plunging neckline executes a fantastic cleavage without stepping into glamour-model territory. To recreate this polished ambience, lingerie tycoons Wonderbra have developed the highly regarded ‘Ultimate Plunge’. An extension on their sensational ‘Ultimate Strapless’ the Plunge features a deep neckline and foam padding in the lower cup to enhance cleavage by 100%. Hand shaped infrastructure offers impeccable hold, whilst the seamless fabric, multi-way features and the lowest of plunges makes it completely undetectable and entirely unique.
Pixie Lott stepped back out into the public eye in a light, white, DKNY gown, effortlessly simple and nineties inspired, styled exquisitely with metallic shoes and chunky accessories. The harmony between the easy style and the heavy adornments struck a delectable balance. The relaxed shape in a delicate fabric requires some assistance to restrict gaping and secure the style. Convenient tools and trickery, proves essential to assist this kind of style and avoid fashion emergencies. (More formally known as nip slips) The Braza Flash Tape is a practical lingerie accessory that helps discreetly and efficiently secure plunging necklines, open sided dresses and boobs. A handy dispenser allows application to be quick and fuss free and remarkably leaves no residue on clothing, a quick and simple life-saver for a statement look. However, if you’re scared to go braless or require extra support, don your favorite nude, seamless bra and make use of The Braza Low Down. The Low Down is a simple solution for backless dresses, effectively converting your standard back strap into a backless style by modifying it to go three inches lower than standard, tying below your ribcage for a tactful and practical alternative to a pesky stick-on design.
British television presenter and actress, Zoe Hardman was the only guest at The Brits this year to not wear designer. Her full length, metallic dress featured a side knot for perfectly tailored waist clinching in the perfectly un-tailored fit. The impeccable boxy shape fabricated into a wrap style, high-slit maxi all combine to make it extraordinary that this show-stopper cost an insignificant £45 from high-street retailer Dorothy Perkins. The sensuality in this ensemble lies in its focus on the femininity of the waist, accentuating the hour glass shape in an refined way. The Simplicity High Waist brief from noble Shapewear specialists Spanx, is a light high-waisted brief constructed from a seamless fabric to offer a sleek silhouette that controls the midriff, tummy and bum and accentuates the figure for that covetable Hourglass shape that can be worn comfortably and discreetly under such a heavy dress for unmistakable prestige.
Queen Bey is no stranger to turning heads and dropping jaws. Her attendance at The Brits featured an exclusively lived televised performance which manifested her in all her beautiful post-baby glory. An iridescent Vrettos Vrettakos dress in profound hue of Midnight Blue was authentically figure hugging and regally embellished in an enrichment of sequins and sparkle. Sheer arm panels and translucent detailing brought a contemporary twist to a classic combination for a direct nod at current trends. Beyoncé’s admirable silhouette was unquestionably enhanced by the dress, with her hips and bum being accentuated by the definition in her waist. For a eminently emphasized figure the Esbelt Waist Cincher Corset effectively slims and shapes the waist for exemplified contouring, with flexible boning and double hook and eye fastenings so you can adapt your desired fit for optimum control and shaping.
One of my favourite ladies and super style icon, Fearne Cotton interpreted the trends orbiting around the New York Fashion scene in a fun and flirty Skater Dress. A Sheer overlay and subtle cleavage directed a more grown-up feel to the charming shape. Styled with a faultless geologic Chanel clutch and peep-toe pumps, Fearne maintains her cool and quirky vibe for yet another year. The High-shine finishes pioneered this year by Lanvin and Versace can be transpired down to your smalls with an eclectic range of reflective tonal pallets in the Bras&Honey camp. Fantasie lingerie is an established brand devoted to channeling fashion-conscious trends for the busty lady. The Vivienne in Silver, The Belle and The Deco Charm are all influential collections that have beautifully rendered the Metallic concept into a dynamic range of lingerie.
