We are now just three weeks from the end of the year, and if we’re looking back on the fashion of 2022, Jodie Turner-Smith has been one of the brightest style stars. For nearly two weeks in Venice during the film festival, it was a relentless fashion and beauty assault, one amazing look after another, an epic slay that we will remember for a long, long time. And she still hasn’t stopped.
Last night Jodie hosted the British Fashion Awards and, well, when one is the host, and the host of the Fashion Awards at that, one must keep serving. Jodie wore neon chartreuse on the red carpet which was enough of a shutdown on its own, and then upped herself with every subsequent change.
Here’s Jodie in dramatic blue, it’s giving Norma Desmond for me:
And here’s Jodie in white, looking like a sculpture:
And here’s Jodie in another white look – a fur coat over a shimmering dress:
That’s a two-in-one though because when the coat comes off, the effect is totally different:
This, I think, is my favourite, because of the details. That choker! The way it matches both the dress but also her hair. And also… note the cuffs on the each sleeve. It’s such an interesting design feature on a sequined dress, like fashion metamorphosis – a look that started out as a shirt and somehow became a dress. SO GOOD.
But even when the show was over, Jodie wasn’t over because there’s always the after-party and that required an outfit change too. She kept the white coat but put on a black dress underneath it that matched her date. Joshua Jackson was with her, he’s been with her in London for a few weeks now, and everything is fine, it seems, to cap off an excellent year in fashion for Jodie.
