Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2015 were held last night in Berkeley Sq in Mayfair in Central London and what a night.

Decided on an unusual angle for this years feature looking at the highlights but red dresses only. Don’t think anybody else has done this and they probably don’t have these shots either. The thing is I was actually there, the papers and fashion bloggers were not hence I was in no rush to get this out by 10pm last night like the rest of the media. There are some unique shots here!

4 in my opinion that stood out on the night because of the red dress factor were naturally Kate Hudson bringing that Hollywood Wow Factor, all of Little Mix, Fearne Cotton and last but certainly not least Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

There’s something about a woman in a red dress, songs have been written about it, it takes guts and confidence to pull it off, but when it’s done right it certainly has the wow factor going on.

Photos from the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2015. One of the biggest awards events in the UK celebrity event calendar that attracts big name celebrities and big name photographers alike. A red carpet fashion and dress extravaganza showcasing Britain’s finest with a dash of Hollywood.

A special event for me as it marks my anniversary in this field of photography so has a very special place in my heart. This is my 4th Glamour Women of the Year Awards, 5th if you include 2011 where I was there with just a mobile phone for a camera (see Tumblr). Back then I really didn’t have the first idea but the 2012 pics have proven to be a pretty tough act to follow despite my then newb celebrity photog status.

With winds and rain and weather warnings for Tuesday it was looking to be a disaster but this event seems to be kinda blessed. The clouds parted, the rain stopped and the sun did it’s stuff allowing the stars to truly shine.

Celebrity arrival photos taken here from stage 1 of the arrival process from the pen where the cars pull up. My favourite pen, the stars are fresh and you are right in the thick of the action with film crew, car exit photographers, security, pr and pa. The only downside is that damn lampost! Most stars stop for photos some don’t. Candids and posed photos although candids are difficult to get at this event as you can appreciate.

Headline picture of the day for me is Shaznay Lewis and Nicole Appleton of All Saints. One of my all time favourite girl bands. As far as I’m concerned nothing comes close! Dig Nicole’s platforms!

This is a good event to get names that you don’t normally see on the celebrity event circuit, week in and week out. Some decent classic names that are the very pillars of the music industry along with more current stars that have been noticed by the Ivor Novello’s and who have decided to award accordingly.

A good mixture of candid and standard posed shots featuring names such as Brian May, Boy George, Bob Geldof , Labrinth, Aston Merrygold and more.

Gone with a candid shot of Pixie Lott and Oliver Cheshire looking the happy couple walking up the red carpet at this awards event.

The sun was out, so were the stars and of course so were the crowds Shooting from the crowds meant a wristband only admission which required an early Sunday rise of 5am.. My wristband was No88 which would guarantee a good spot pretty much which means a high chance of some good pictures. Last year they ran out of wristbands and I was lucky to get in.

Anybody that is anybody in the TV industry turns up at this event which covers all genres including soap, documentary, mini series, sport, comedy, drama, news and others. The fellowship gong is the coveted one reserved for those that have been in the industry for a considerable period of time and are highly respected as a result.

A good event for candid shots. All shots taken in front of the interview area which was a good spot for the more unusual shots. Grab the shots via the link  below.

The 2015 TRIC Awards were held today 10 March at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane in Central London. Thought I’d take a look and see what is going on!

Picked a tough spot amongst the photogs to get shots of the more posed variety but was right on top of where the cars pulled up which could produce the odd cracking and different shot, which it did.  As long suffering regulars know, I’m more interested in the intimate and candid moment style shots. Just meant I had to scream like a banshee to get people to turn round when they were posing and look right down the end where I was which was tough to put it mildly.

Highlight for me was Laura Whitmore who has ever was “on the money” in fashion terms. The shot above with her “lips bag” did it for me on the day, she was a matter of  feet away and a cracking shot. If you look closely at this shot, hair just gently blowing in the wind, nail polish on display, bag on full view and legs crossed. She’s done this before hasn’t she!

I’m officially back early April but keep your eyes peeled for further sporadic updates. As always watch for further news on the Twitter @famefad

The Fame Fad Candid Moment Photo Awards. The Top 25 of 2014 with the Top 6 in large size. Strange, bizarre and not your normal sort of posed celebrity photos. Stars doing rabbit ears, sticking out their tongue, laughing their heads off, trying to make smoke rings, dancing, wearing space suits, locked in cages by gorillas and much more. What can I say. Celebrity photos with a difference? I’ll let the photos do the talking!

6 Maddy Hill: A chaotic Awards event held at DSTRKT in Soho produced some interesting red carpet arrivals of the more candid variety.

One to watch!

Delilah at London Fashion Week Day 1

Delilah at London Fashion Week Day 1

7. Delilah:  Music star Delilah is a regular at London Fashion Week and always manages to cause a stir when she arrives. This year was no exception when she turned up at Somerset House. Not strictly a red carpet event but she’s got the look that says otherwise and heads did turn en masse as a result. She achieved the desired result.

Margot Robbie arrives at the Harpers Bazaar Women of the Year Awards 2014 London

8 Margot Robbie: Yellow is a colour that you can either pull off or fail mserably. Margot on arrival on what was a miserable wet night, was a ray of sunshine and got the press photogs in a lather within a split second of arrival. She was the girl of the night and ticked all the right boxes.A  plunging neckline does help though?

11 Caroline Flack:  TV presenter Caroline Flack who recently won Strictly Come Dancing is a Red Carpet regular and knows what’s what and what works when it comes to creating a presence. It’s hard to find fault when it comes to red carpet fashion with this one hence her No11 billing. The photo above at this years Glamour Women of the Year Awards speaks volumes.

Kirsten Dunst at The Two Faces of January Premiere London

12 Kirsten Dunst:  Actress of quite long standing and highly respected in the film world, she is no stranger to film premieres and red carpet events. An all black number is a safe choice and never fails to create that showbiz wow factor

Sarah Jane Crawford  arrives at the Global Gift Gala Event in London

13. 13. Sarah Jane Crawford: TV presenter and new girl on the block Sarah Jane Crawford loves to use colour to creative effect and is not afraid to take a gamble on her red carpet dress choices. Here at the Global Gift Gala event in Mayfair, London the wow factor is definitely in play.

Lydia Bright at the 2014 TV Choice Awards London

Lydia Bright at the 2014 TV Choice Awards London

14 Lydia Bright: Lydia the reality TV star of TOWIE fame managed to make an impact on arrival at this years TV Choice Awards with this number and I would say was one of the Top 3 on the night in my opinion, all of which appear on this final 25 top list.

Florence Welch at the 2014 Ivor Novello Awards, London. Arrival Photos and Candids

15. Florence Welch: Music stars are not afraid to push boundaries as is often demonstrated at music awards events.

Ella Eyre arrives at the British Fashion Awards 2014 London

The British Fashionista Awards the final Hot 5. Some surprises, some names you would expect, some bolt out of blue, it’s all here, but they all have one thing in common, they know fashion, they turn heads and they are watched closely. These are women that made a big impression on me throughout 2014 or maybe just the once for their look and fashion prowess. You could say it’s a fashionista list with a photographic bias. To be on the List of 25 you have to have something special going on. To be in the Top 5 you have to be consistently exceptional.

What makes a top 25 Fashionista at the Fame Fad British Fashionista Awards?

1. Individual style

2. Trend Setting

3. Pioneering

4. Mass market influence and appeal

5. Head turning

6. Variety

7. Boundary pushing to acceptable limits

8. Respected and closely watched by the media and fashion circles.

9. Idea Generators

10. Leaders not followers

11. Confidence to rock their look

12.Elegance, sophistication, chic and panache

13. Never looking like they are trying too hard too achieve all of the above.

A lot of names have not made it onto this list such as Michelle Keegan, Myleene Klass, Kate Moss (I still have no photos of her), Marina Diamandis and many others. This originally was a Top 20 then stretched to a 25 because of the names involved. If it was a Top 30 the above names would be in and Kate Moss would be in the Top 3 for sure, but this is the Top 25. So who are  the final HOT 5?

Ella Eyre arrives at the British Fashion Awards 2014 London

Ella Eyre arrives at the British Fashion Awards 2014 London

No 1 Ella Eyre: Ella Eyre straight in and  claims the No 1 spot at our British Fashionista Awards. Why? After photographing her on numerous occassions it has to be said she rocks completely different looks across the fashion board with an air of ease and confidence. Variety, style amd panache, she can do safe and tame  and boundary pushing easily but always keeps her trademark hairstyle as the constant. Very new and fresh in celebrity terms, she’s a music star but has fashion sense and style here that puts her up there and ahead of the great names in this fashionista list. In my opinion she trumped them all in 2014 with a deadly consistency that suggests she has been in the celebrity/fashion game for a long time when indeed she has not. Keep an eye on this one in 2015!

Daisy Lowe and Celebrity Spotting London Fashion Week 13 September 2014

Daisy Lowe and Celebrity Spotting London Fashion Week 13 September 2014

No 2 Daisy Lowe: Daisy Lowe is the boundary pusher in this line up. Cut off denim shorts and big black boots was here trade mark for some time often with black tights underneath. Daisy Lowe did, others followed en mass. This is the lady to watch for ideas you would never think of in a million years. The photo above is living testament to that fact.  Who can rock a look like this and get away with it……………Daisy Lowe with her cheeky confidence? If you want to turn heads and be the talk of the town for all the right reasons, better watch Daisy! She’s  a tom boy at heart but can turn heads on the red carpet with her feminine ways. Difficult to ignore but then why would you?

Fearne Cotton arrives at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards 2014, London

Fearne Cotton arrives at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards 2014, London

N0 3 Fearne Cotton. Fearne is the fashion magician in this list. She puts together the ordinary and creates something extraordinary. Something quite a lot in this list would struggle to do on a daily, weekly, monthly basis with consistent results and with an infectious confidence that has other people following her fashion moves. Closely watched in fashion circles and the media, her ideas have influence and send shock waves through the fashion masses. Gold with black stars and matching nail varnish. Simple but deadly and so Fearne!

Tamara Ecclestone at the Formula 1 Pre Party at the V & A Museum Kensington, London

Tamara Ecclestone at the Formula 1 Pre Party at the V & A Museum Kensington, London

No 4 Tamara Ecclestone. The high society fashionista in the line up with impeccable taste. Daughter of Bernie Ecllestone the owner of Formula 1, a multi billion pound business, you could say she has enough money to surround herself with the best fashion stylists and advisers that money can buy. But as has been seen many times money cannot guarantee fashion success. Something else is needed and this woman has it. Diamond encrusted strappy heels? More than likely but she has the look, confidence and class to pull it off! I don’t think I’ve ever seen this one never less than impeccably dressed

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini (Cheryl) arrives at BBC Radio 1

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini (Cheryl) arrives at BBC Radio 1

No5 Cheryl Fernandez Versini. Cheryl has many aspects to her fashion look and persona with music performance, red carpet, tv appearance and casual styles all having their own look. She has many fashion pressures. She leans towards the Pixie Lott girly look but can shock especially in her live music attire and go completely the other way causing a whirlwind of mutterings in the media and fashion circles. She doesn’t care though, she’ll push those fashion boundaries, an important aspect of being a leading fashionista and with her stunning looks always saving the day no matter what she wears.
