Elizabeth Olsen in Calvin Klein at the Elle Style Awards: lovely or budget?


I’m splitting up the Elle Style Awards photos into two different posts, just FYI. The annual event – for the UK edition of Elle Magazine – is held in London every year around the same time as the BRIT Awards. I seem to remember the Elle Style Awards coming after the Brit Awards in previous years, but this year, the ESAs came one day before. Let’s start off with Elizabeth Olsen in Calvin Klein. I guess I can’t make a joke about a Hiddlesbaby, right? Because she doesn’t look pregnant anymore. It’s almost as if she’s making a conscious choice to show off her midriff so we’ll know that Tom Hiddleston hasn’t impregnated her! Anyway, I have no idea if they’re still together, if they’re friends with benefits, or whatever. I don’t really care for this CK look.



Here are Ellie Goulding and Liv Tyler, both in Stella McCartney. I’m not feeling either look – Ellie’s dress looks like a budget version of the lingerie-inspired slipdress trend from the ‘90s, and the body chain worn outside of the dress? LOL. Liv’s dress is okay except for the shade of blue.



Charlie XCX in some acid green monstrosity. Sigh… this is so bad.


Jourdan Dunn in Emilio de la Morena. I love Jourdan and think she’s amazing. The dress is meh.


Paloma Faith in Armani Privé. I don’t get why she’s a thing? I would have loved this ensemble on Cate Blanchett though.

    OK. Liv Tyler. That. THAT! That is the body I want. I feel like she has a similar figure/weight to Kate Winslet. Both very beautiful, with my proportions, and a more attainable goal than super skinny (no judgement against the skinnies, but it’s not my build so I would never try)(plus, cake).
    What size do we think she is? I can never tell. A 6? Does that seem right? Or is she slimmer, like a 4?

    • hehe says:

      I would think maybe an 8? She is perdy!

    • Sarah says:

      ummm, she’s heavily pregnant right now, if that affects anything…

      • Grump says:

        Oh, haha, really?
        I just thought she was voluptuous :)

      • lilacflowers says:

        Pictures from the side look like she’s due very soon.

      • QQ says:

        Wait what?? , didn’t Liv already had the baby???

        the winner in this round really is Jourdan Dunn’s Shoes… and the dr that messed up Ellie’s lips, cause surely he got his money already and he is kicking back while she is out here looking like she had Labial Hemorrhoids

      • V4Real says:

        LOL…that’s messed up.

        I hope the floors are clean because the hemline on Elizabeth Olsen’s pants are going to go from white to black by the end of the night. Why do people insist on wearing pants that hangs over their shoes and drag on the floor. And is it just me or does her hemline seems a bit stringy?

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Liv had one baby with her current partner (Sailor or Sawyer) and they’re now having a second

    • NUTBALLS says:

      Liv looks great, even if the color is a bit strong, it looks good with her skin tone and dark hair. I think she’s pulling it off.

  2. Amelia says:

    I know it was mentioned in the Grammy’s thread, but holy crap has Ellie messed with her face.

    • Shambles says:

      Dude. I’m still half awake, and her lips brought me up one more level of awakeness because they’re so jarring. Like… Is she purposefully pouting or is that actually what her lips look like now? Yeeeesh.

      To each their own, but in Ellie’s case it makes me really sad. Her first album, Lights, was there for me during a really hard time in my young life. Her songs were so real and relatable, so it’s really sad to see her fakeify herself.

    • JFresh says:

      Honestly the lips are less absurd than that body jewelry being worn OVER her dress. I’m all for doing things differently but it just looks…. Well it’s a definite miss IMO.

    • Amelia says:

      Shambles, I remember when she was the Critics Choice at the Brit Awards a fair few years back right before Lights came out and I completely agree.
      She’s not a particular favourite of mine, but I appreciated hearing a new tone of music on the radio back then.
      I wonder if this has come from the whole ‘breaking America’ goal.

    • ell says:

      it’s just her lips. she overdid it, hopefully she knows and she’ll let them be for a bit.

  3. vauvert says:

    Liv is gorgeous, and the blue dress would be perfect with a better built-in bra. The rest of the outfits are once again proof that no matter how expensive an outfit is, if it lacks good taste… It’s still an epic fail. Do these women lack mirrors, or common sense, or both? Jourdan is such a beautiful woman, but that dress is terrible, and the rest are beyond fug.

    • Patricia says:

      Same thing I thought, Liv needs more support. She still looks like a goddess and is the best dressed. Love her so much.

    • chelsea says:

      I think the age of the stylist is drawing to a close. They couldn’t do any worse dressing themselves.

  4. Swak says:

    Why is Jordana Dunn standing that way? Looks awkward and uncomfortable.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Two bunions, and high heels!! Yowza, and I thought my one bunion was bad… I can’t stand in heels for long due to my little friend. Girlfriend must be made of steel.

  5. InvaderTak says:

    Paloma Faith is a singer and a darn good one; and she’s fun on Brit panel shows. She got Russell Brand with some great shade on Graham Norton too. She needs to go back to her red hair though the blond does nothing for her. Everyone is looking pretty meh or a style awards show. I wish Charlie XCX would get a better stylist; she could really rock some great clothes but is currently lost in the pop part genre.

    • lilacflowers says:

      On another episode of Norton, she had Bill Murray, Hugh Bonneville, and Matt Damon drinking out of her shoe. Funny lady.

      • InvaderTak says:

        Forgot about that one! That was awesome. I love her on NMTBC too. She smashed a cake on one episode. If I was in control of the world PF would have a career like Adele’s. I think she’s better vocally, and her song choices are far superior IMO. I might put her above Amy Winehouse too. Prince is a fan too.

      • Amelia says:

        That episode will go down in television history <3

      • lilacflowers says:

        @Amelie, as it should. It was one of the funniest episodes of any talk show ever.

    • SpareRib says:

      She’s an amazing singer. I remember watching her perform ‘Only Love Can Hurt Like This’ last year at the Brit awards and being moved to tears, it was incredible. Bit confused as to why the writer is questioning why British celebs are there – its a UK event, so… Just because they arent famous in the US doesn’t mean they don’t exist, obviously.

    • JFresh says:

      Is that her real hair or a wig? If it’s real I’m so jelly

    • frantasticstar says:

      I love Paloma, but wtf happened to her? She looks ghastly!

    • Jellybean says:

      I like her too.

  6. Nancy says:

    The Olsen sisters Irish twin was the only one that had it it right in my opinion. The others not so much, All that blue on Liv makes me dizzy. Hate the one sleeve on Jourdan and that expression on her face looks like she was staring at Liv’s dress too long. Charlie and Paloma, oh my, if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything…………silence.

    • Finally Fr33 says:

      Why does she always look up in pics? She makes the “please God” face…its weird. Like she’s trying not to look, but is looking…

  7. Neelyo says:

    Can’t get past the Olson nose job, was her old one so bad?

    • JFresh says:

      I can’t get past the threads dangling from the hem of her coat. The nose is a pity because it’s so close to being really excellent work. The doc just pinched it a little too much….

  8. Jen says:

    I have NO idea who any of these women are (except Liv.) The clothes are horrible!

  9. Lucy2 says:

    Liv looks amazing, the rest, eh.

  10. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    Elizabeth’s outfit is a solid NO for me.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      As almost everything she wears to these kinds of events. The girl deserves no fashion awards with the notable exception of her white CK dress she wore at Deauville last year.

  11. bread says:

    Elizabeth Olsen’s outfit belongs in a 90s R’n'B video.

  12. Remember the bit Jim Carrey used to do on In Living Color where he would give beauty advice? He had one where he burned his lips with a curling iron and said “wait til they start to blister!” That’s what Ellie’s pout reminds me of.

  13. khaveman says:

    Wow all of the photos are pretty underwhelming, fashion-wise, except for Liv’s look.

  14. ell says:

    “It’s almost as if she’s making a conscious choice to show off her midriff so we’ll know that Tom Hiddleston hasn’t impregnated her!”

    yes, i’m sure she chose the outfit for hiddleston crazy stans lol. that outfit is horrible btw, i looked at most dresses from the style award, and barely anything looks stylish at all.

    ellie’s lips are getting out of control.

    • Jellybean says:

      Well, any day now she will be off up a mountain to film for a couple of months, so it is unlikely she chose this as a good time for a pregnancy.

      I do like that she isn’t super skinny and is a little ordinary looking.

  15. SM says:

    Asking why Paloma Faith is a thing in the world of lana del rays and ariana grandes and one directions is like asking why ketchup is a thing in the age of fast food

  16. Guest says:

    Oh ffs… Why can’t these women dress properly? Except of Liv who looks georgeous. But what about Olsen? Is she blind? Her sisters are designers damn. I remember a magazine interview of her in which she stated that she doesn’t like presenting clothes in photoshots but why is she present on every Red Carpet Of Fashion and Magazine Events? Btw Paloma faith is awesome. I love her….

  17. suzanne says:

    I think Elizabeth raided the TLC wardrobe closet from the “Waterfalls” video.

  18. NUTBALLS says:

    Kaiser, you forgot to mention that Olsen won “Movie Actress of the Year” for her bit part in Age of Ultron. I had to change my undies after weeing them in laughter.

    You have to give her publicist some credit… she’s been working hard to keep her in the news while unemployed.

    • KittyKat says:

      Hey nutty, it’s been well known that the publicists buy those awards especially with Elle. It’s so obvious. probably because they won’t get any anywhere else.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Yeah, these kind of silly awards are pretty obviously bought.

      • KittyKat says:

        I think it was for Date Night with Loki. It was a masterpiece it really was hiding from the paps like that when she’s used to them and had worse.

        Bravo Elizabeth, screw Kate winslet, Brie Larson, Alicia whatsherface and everyone else who was better

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Yeah, I’ve noticed that all other times she’s been photographed out on the town she’s never acted out the way she did for the Wolseley Pap Walk With Rumored Lover Tom. THAT was her Performance of the Year!

    • Guest says:

      Nooooo? She did? Actress of the Year? This is just….. Ehm. Well…. Wow. Speechless.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        I know, right? For Scarlett Witch… a minor character in an overcrowded Marvel universe. I’m surprised anyone could keep a straight face while her name was read out.

    • InvaderTak says:

      Um wow.

  19. KittyKat says:

    “Toooooooommmmmm” I can’t help it. after that epic performance that even he ignored. Sorry really can’t take her that seriously anymore.

  20. Farhi says:

    I don’t like any of Calvin Klein designs, they all look budget.

  21. Kir says:

    Liv Tyler is incredibly sexy, beautiful, elegant in my opinion.
