Awards Ball Fashion: Bambi And Battersea Dogs and Cats Galas

One of the good things about it getting dark earlier in Winter is that it means there is more time to party. December is fast approaching, which means work and social Christmas parties and catching up with friends that we might not have seen for ages. So it’s important to look fabulous so we can have some lovely pictures to remind us of the festive season. Photos last forever after all!

I think there can be quite a lot of pressure at this time of year to get things perfect, but we don’t have to let it get us down as there are some simple ways to get inspiration. For example, we can look at how the celebrities have got it right with their party outfits and use it as inspiration. Fortunately there have been a couple of formal events this week so here’s a closer look at what happened at the events and what the celebs wore to dazzle:

BAMBI Awards

This is Germany’s biggest award ceremony and attracts A’list stars from around the world. Awards are given to excellent film, music and TV stars and the dress code is as glamorous as The Oscars.

Rita Ora

Rita won the award for Best International Music star and I think she also wins the award for best dressed. Her grey maxi dress is just fabulous! The train may get awkward in real life, but grey is ideal for a Christmas party as you stand out but it’s still a soft colour.

Heidi Klum

Heidi won Best Model and showed off her elegance and stage presence in a purple strapless maxi dress. Purple is the colour of royalty and she acted like a princess on stage, accepting her trophy. The strapless cut is very flattering. Gorgeous!

Hilary Swank

Hilary also picked up an award, getting honoured for her acting. She looks so pretty in this black and silver long sleeve maxi dress. It’s simple and flattering to her figure and she keeps the look simple with a side bun. Sometimes it’s best if you keep it simple – it makes me want a long sleeve maxi dress, that’s for sure.

Battersea Dogs Home Collars and Coats Ball

This is the annual fundraiser for Battersea Dogs Home so the stars turn up and really make an effort to support the animals. Each year it raises £100,000 for vulnerable animals and the celebs donate things to auction.

Leigh Anne Pinnock


Little Mix’s Leigh Anne Pinnock and her boyfriend Jordan Kiffin are back together and they adopted a cute little pup for the night. I don’t know what was cuter – the fluffy dog or Leigh Anne’s outfit with her co-ordinate set.

Camilla Kerslake

Camilla’s the girlfriend of England rugby captain Chris Robshaw so she’s had a tough month since England were knocked out of the world cup early, but now she’s dazzling again in a yellow dress. Sometimes the best way to cheer yourself up is to wear something bright and fabulous. Not many people wear yellow to a Christmas party so this is a good outfit if you want to make an impression.

Who do you think looked the best? I have to say Rita Ora looked incredible. A maxi dress is perfect for cold weather and it always looks like you’ve made an effort in a maxi.
