Another awards, another bunch of celebs in pretty dresses, right? Let’s cut to the chase. Here are our top 5 favourite frocks and leading ladies.

If there was a fashion Olympics, we would like to see running in heels, hurdling Hermes Birkin bags and a walk-off. Oh, hang on a minute, it would appear the fashion gods have smiled on London 2012 and we might just get a supermodel walk-off after all!
According to rumours, Britain’s best supermodels are set to strut their stuff in the closing ceremony and we’re talking the likes of Lily Cole, Naomi Campbell, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Georgia May Jagger and Kate Moss – natch.
Of course if the rumours are true, we expect them to be wearing a selection of clothing from British designers such as Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen…and the Daily Mirror says it will all be sound tracked to David Bowie’s ‘Fashion’ and ‘Rebel Rebel’.
We also read somewhere that they will each be paid one pound to take part – but after reading so many stories we’re afraid we might have made that bit up. We’ll just have to wait and see!
I have kinda always wanted to go to Comic-Con – not because I’m a massive comic book geek but just for a slightly surreal experience. The main draw this year seems to have been the stars of Twilight (and not sadly for us in the Snap office, Emma Stone and her totally preppy Spiderman look!) Whatever, we like Kristen Stewart’s hi-tops and the rest of the Twilight stars’ sparkly details and luxe leather looks.

Of course Hollywood starlets and Brit IT girls flocked to couture week. We were particularly taken with classic tailoring (well it was France and a Chanel show) but also has a soft spot for demure daytime sequins and a high fashion double denim (almost) moment.
Have two of our favourite celebs sparked a micro-trend? Rihanna and Blake Lively have both been spotted wearing traffic-stopping red suits in the past week. While the coordinating colours thing is very this summer, the red suit has been an almost constant presence on the catwalk in recent years as well as on countless celebs. Is it a look you’ll try? Chris de Burgh is a fan.
