Awards Show Round Up

Posted on: February 8, 2013


The Grammy’s are coming up this weekend and you can be sure that on both Sleek and Gill’s World we will be following the fashion and hair style action and filling you in so you can recreate the looks on the red carpet yourself! In preparation to this we are bringing you a special feature today on what celebs were wearing at the last few awards shows. We are suckers for Red Carpet glamour and there have been some real sleek and stylish couture this season! People have been taking risks with colour on their dress and colour in their hair and we think it’s all fabulous. So let’s take a look back at some of our favourite looks!



Miss Washington has been out in full force lately promoting Django Unchained, and she showed up at the NAACP Awards in this fantastic two colour dress. We weren’t sure at first that baby pink and mint green should be paired up, but it has really grown on us and we think Kerry looks fresh and vibrant! Kerry is rocking a straight, pinned back, sophisticated hair style which contrasts fantastically with her playful gown. If you want to get this look yourself we recommend something like Sleek’s Dainty Synthetic Lace Wig, which has a lightweight cap that’s airy and cool and has a lace front so can be adjusted to the perfect fit. This also means the hairline looks natural and realistic so you can pin it back as much as you like and always look fabulous.



We loved what Zuleikah was wearing at the SAG Awards, she looked like some sort of ethereal creature from Lord of the Rings (in the good way, not the orc way). It was flowery, flowy and was like the dress we dreamed about having when we were children and wanted to be fairies. It also reminded us of something that Miss Zooey Deschanel would be wearing. Zuleikah was rocking the long, full, straight hair with the blunt bangs too, which is band on trend for the moment. The catwalks at New York Fashion Week have been overflowing with blunt bangs accompanying long hair. You can get this look from Sleek with our Sapphire 100% Human Hair wig or our Erin Synthetic Wig. Both have the statement fringe and the length you need to play around and style up your hair to be just as dreamy as Zuleikah.



Thandie Newton sparkled in a short lilac and sheer dress that looked like it had a big silver firework splashed across it. We think it was a really fun choice in amongst all the very classic cuts and colours that were all over the Golden Globe red carpet. Her hair also looked amazing, long, classic layers that framed her face perfectly. She really did look as pretty as a picture. To get the classic long layered look yourself you can try our Spotlight Pizzazz Wig, which will stay as sleek and smooth as Thandie’s thanks to the high quality hair and the lace cap. Sleek can take care of the hair, you just need to figure out what sparkly party dress to pair it up with!



Halle Berry is always rocking her short, natural hair. Short hair is really on trend this season, with people adding lots of colour in and funking it up to give it edge and style. Halle always adds great texture to hers to keep it looking interesting and the punk sort of quality to it paired with her classic black gown at the NAACP awards provided such a great contrast of styles. Of course not everyone wants to go that short, we’re not all that brave! If you want to give the edgy short look a try but not chop off all your own hair we have a selection of great wigs for you! We would say that the Toni would be great for this style, have a play around styling it up in interesting ways once you’ve got it secured to your hair. For slightly more length you could also go for our Estelle Synthetic Wig. It has the added bonus of a fringe so you can get that edgy, punk look easily!



Meagan Good looks beautiful in this deep blue dress at the NAACP Awards. The colour and shape suit her really well and she looks so radiant don’t you think? She has her hair pulled back slightly to keep it out of her face, which is a great look for a night out when you don’t have a lot of time on your hands. Using a plait or a really good clip hair piece in or even just some really pretty hair clips can make it look really chic for little effort on your part. Our Fashion 101 Coral Wig is perfect for a look just like this. You’ll look fabulous even if you’re just heading to the supermarket… the world is your catwalk after all!
