There can be a tendency at award shows to go for full over the top glamour, pure shine and shimmer. It is the red carpet and so it feels as if high glamour in the typically expected sense (you know, a dress with a long train, with sequins and diamonds etc) is the only look that is a guaranteed style win. But the problem with this look is that everyone is doing it. So, in this sea of shine it’s actually the more unexpected looks that can actually grab our attention, think: oversized shirts, print and patterns instead of sequins, short trains not long ones, suits not dresses. Which brings us to the Brits 2017, the UK music awards show that just dazzled us all, with the most talked about performances by Ed Sheeran and Katy Perry. But for us at WGSN, it was all about the fashion, the Insta-worthy understated styles. Check them out below: French singer Héloïse Letissier (known as Christine and the Queens) rocking Ann Demeulemeester at the 2017 Brit Awards Héloïse Letissier- Brits 2017 fashion style star Lianne La Havas in an embroidered Jenny Packham gown.

This season, London designers pulled out all the stops to create truly unique catwalk designs for the Autumn Winter 17 shows. Here are some of our favourites: HOPE. Stylist | @elliegracecumming Make Up | @ingegrognard with make up by @maccosmetics @maccosmeticsuk Hair | @cyndiaharvey Nails | @amaquashie Casting | @tm_casting Production | @roseeaston Location | @fitzroviachapel Flowers | @maisondefleurs A post shared by Phoebe English (@phoebeenglish) on Feb 22, 2017 at 3:09am PST The Phoebe English runway show dazzled crowds with the fashions on the runway and the exquisite location: Fitzrovia Chapel in central London. The chapel with detailed mosaics, marble walls and gothic-inspired arches, was Insta-worthy enough already but the added touches, including large floral wreaths (courtesy of Maison de Fleurs) for the models to pose in, helped to perfectly finish the look. Ashley Williams LFW This season, Ashley Williams took us outside of her teenage bedroom from last season and into a childhood yard. She had her models walk through an overgrown back garden set, complete with a slide, Little Tikes Cozy Coupe, and an old plush chair. Ashish LOVE t-shirt Ashish Ashish‘s runway started with a glittery broken heart and went into a Wizard of Oz-inspired yellow glitz road, complete with bouquets of red poppies. Teaming up with Thomas Petherick and Blonstein Productions, this catwalk truly highlighted Ashish’s love of everything that sparkles, and was perfectly married to his fashion sentiment of love without boundaries.

Photographer: @charlie_wheeler_ A post shared by incaevent (@incaevent) on Feb 19, 2017 at 4:47am PST Collaborating with INCA Productions yet again (remember that amazing set from last season?), the Anya Hindmarch show featured a winding road down an abstract mountain, changing colours as the show went on. The collection was inspired by romantic feelings of winter and motifs found in Old Norse folklore, making a chilly mountain a fitting setting for this runway. Sophia_Webster LFW setting Sophia_Webster Taking winter in a different direction, Sophia Webster‘s runway channeled her inner ice queen with a snow globe, an icy set and plenty of fake snow. Delicate pastel fairy lights gave the set a frosty ambience and girlish charm. Like this post?
