British Fashion Awards worst dress: Ellie Goulding leads the bizarre fashion statements

The British Fashion Awards is famous for its uber-stylish and star-studded guestlist, but this year it seems a number of celebrities made some questionable style choices.

Leading the way was Ellie Goulding, 32, who stepped out in a floor-sweeping blouse paired with grey trousers and chunky heels, failing to deliver the glamour expected from the event. 

Meanwhile Adrift actress Shailene Woodley, 28, made a fashion faux pas in a bright blue inflatable dress, while the head-to-toe red ensemble donned by The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo star Noomi Rapace turned heads for all the wrong reasons – including a coordinating top hat and boots.

The highly anticipated event was seen as an opportunity to challenge the conventions of the fashion industry, but some stars stole the limelight for all the wrong reasons as they joined the list of those worst dressed.

Noomi Rapace, 39, has made her name for herself in the fashion world in recent years with her out-there-fashion looks, and certainly didn’t disappoint. 

Meanwhile Big Little Lies starlet Shailene stepped out in a stripey blue hooded puffer Moncler by Pierpaolo Piccioli dress.

Getting the monochrome memo, Rita Ora turned up to the glitzy ceremony in a 16Arlington bespoke black and white panelled leather gown and dramatic blue make-up.

The dress was a floor-length affair, with a Bardot neckline and a matching choker. She added sharp white heels to the outfit, sweeping her mane back from her features to showcase her striking make-up to its full potential.

Certainly not a wallflower, British actress Bel Powley stole the spotlight in a floral number with a high low hemline and  bizarre adornments snaking around her waist and chest area. 

Meanwhile Kylie Minogue teamed a fluorescent yellow puffball skirt with an oversized blazer, in a strange combination. 

And despite having acted as a clothes horse for the likes of Bvlgari, Lottie Moss missed the mark in an oversized black ballgown which swamped her petite frame. 

Joining the more outrageous looks was designer Harris Reed, who wore a sheer cream dress covered in feathers, paired with chunky brown shoes.

The prestigious annual awards is held at the Royal Albert Hall, and celebrates those who’ve made the biggest contribution to the fashion industry over the past 12 months. 

Creatives in the industry are acknowledged across categories including Fashion Icon, Trailblazer and Designer of the Year.  

Founded in 1989, the Fashion Awards acts as a fundraiser to the British Fashion Council’s talent initiatives and programmes which support emerging talent. 

It is also a fundraiser for the BFC’s charities and aims to support future talented individuals with their creative fashion skills.
