2023 Harper's Bazaar Women of The Year Awards

Yesterday evening(November 7th) in London, the 2023 Harper's Bazaar Women of The Year Awards was held at Claridge's.

Janelle Monae was easily my top favorite, serving us with a wow moment courtesy of HARRIS REED. Janelle's FALL 2023 strapless gown was altered from the look book version which worked in her favor. I like the the sheer side panels were removed and the peplum detail executed better than the draping. OLIVIA & PEARL ear climbers, a MAE CASSIDY clutch and a flawless beauty look finished up her look.

Jenna Ortega was an honoree as well wearing a CHRISTIAN DIOR SPRING 2024 look. I feel like she could have nailed if she mimicked the runways styling but either way, she pulled it off.

Camille Cottin also wore CHRISTIAN DIOR, choosing a semi-sheer black dress with a black bra & briefs underneath for coverage. I like the look but I am missing the belt. 

Emilia Clarke wore a EMILIA WICKSTEAD SPRING 2024 fringe dress with a coat over her shoulders and nude CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN pumps. The problem here is the color. I don't think it suits her. A darker hue would have made this much better on her.

Jessie Buckley rocked a ERDEM RESORT 2024 skirt suit paired with black boots which toughen up her look. I like this on her but I wish the sleeves on the jacket weren't so long and the lining underneath the skirt should have been black. 

Gugu Mbatha-Raw looked beautiful wearing a GIORGIO ARMANI PRIVE FALL 2017 COUTURE black peplum gown. I like that the top was changed to the same fabric as the skirt because it works so much better. However, I wish the straps were removed or changed as well. Nonetheless, she still looked beautiful.

Emily Beecham made a rare appearance wearing a RENAISSANCE RENAISSANCE SPRING 2023 two-piece ensemble. This is cute but I wish that she chose metallic accessories. 

Francesca Hayward wore a vintage JUNYA WATANABE dress from WEST ARCHIVE. Gold open-toe heels would have been a better shoe choice. 

Sophia Di Martino looked great wearing a EDELINE LEE two-piece ensemble accessorized with a SHRIMPS pearl bag.

Kim Cattrall wore a BALMAIN PRE-FALL 2023 black and gold sequin mini dress. She looked great but this feels dated. 

Naomi Watts wore a TORY BURCH SPRING 2024 black cape sleeve dress with nude underlining. I am not a fan of the u-neckline but I definitely prefer the runway version. 

Phoebe Waller-Bridge wore a GALVAN PRE-FALL 2023 black single-breasted suit which I liked on her. It's unfortunate that she didn't get the pants hemmed.
