Of all the months, February always had a hard time growing up. The smallest since the start, February has had to deal with the post Christmas slump, forever standing in the shadow of December, a month of sheer extravagance.
Luckily for February, the Fashion world took mercy and crowned it the unofficial Red Carpet season. A bit of a kick in the baubles for December; February marks a short and sweet month of ultimate fashion calendar decadence. The OSCARs, BAFTAs, Grammys, four Fashion Weeks and Elle Style Awards are all crammed into twenty eight days, so it's no wonder that this month is the cause of much excitement for the fashion blogging community.
Tonight sees the start of the stylish festivities as Brits can combat Sunday night blues by tuning into the BAFTAs (from 8pm on BBC2 and then from 9pm from BBC1) to tut and coo in all the right places as wonderous creations (and alas, those that should never have been allowed to see the light of day) are let out to glide around London's Royal Opera House.
Next up are the ELLE Style Awards which take place tomorrow night and we'll all have to wait and wonder just what will Host Ms Alexa Chung wear?
Let's cross our fingers for some nutriously stylish attire, let of the Valentino and more of the Peter Pilotto, please.
