Annie Mac rocks sandals and tights

Annie Mac rocks sandals and tights

DJ Annie Mac is one celeb who showed that tights and sandals can look on trend, pairing her black opaque legwear with some purple open-toed heels as she attended the opening of the Shard.

The mum-to-be teamed her bright shoes with a patterned silk dress which showed off her growing bump perfectly. Finishing the looked with a slick of red lipstick and her mane of curls styled around her shoulders.

And Annie certainly enjoyed her night out, tweeting a number of pictures from the DJ booth on the Shard's 69th floor.

Other celebs who attended the event included pop star Pixie Lott, who braved bare legs in a yellow mini dress, and Erin McNaught who rocked some leather leggings and a cosy camel coat.

Sofia protects modesty in tights

Sofia protects modesty in tights

The Modern Family star teamed a thigh-skimming mini with black legwear and a short black mac as she attended the DirecTV Super Saturday Night party over the weekend.

She finished her ensemble with some statement silver earrings and wore her hair loose around her shoulders.

Sofia was perhaps being cautious as she has suffered a number of wardrobe malfunctions in recent months, with her dress splitting at the Emmys and her top slipping as she celebrated New Year's Eve.

She recently told People magazine how easy it is to have a wardrobe mishap, saying: "It's very easy [for a dress to rip] because you get out of the car, you go up, you try to go to the restroom. When you're on the red carpet, a lot of people step on your dress and pull it."

Other celebs attending the event included Kate Upton who teamed her leather jacket with some black leggings and lots of necklaces and Nina Dobrev who braved bare legs in a black mini dress with lace detailing and black court shoes.

Amanda Nevill wows in spotty tights

Amanda Nevill wows in spotty tights

The Director of the British Film Institute confirmed that fun tights aren't just for teenagers as she paired her black polka dot tights with a black fitted dress, a bright red jacket and black heels.

Her hair and make up perfectly suited the ensemble as her blonde hair was loose in a windswept style and she donned red lipstick to add extra va-va-voom.

The 2013 London Evening Standard British Film Awards were held at the London Film Museum on the South Bank and were supported by Chopard and Moet & Chandon.

Celebrities including Les Miserables star Eddie Redmayne and Jamie Winstone attended the event.

Best Actor and Best Actress went to Toby Jones and Andrea Riseborough, respectively, while Skyfall was named Film of the Year.

Cheska wraps up warm in tights

Cheska wraps up warm in tights

The blonde beauty wore a rather striking fur-trimmed wrap over her ensemble, ensuring she was protected against the elements.

Underneath the wrap she donned a leather jacket and a black mini dress, while her pins were kept warm in black opaque tights and black studded ankle boots.

Cheska wore her masses of blonde hair loose around her shoulders and kept her make up natural.

One star who may have wished she had followed in the socialite's sartorial footsteps is the film's star Sarah Silverman, who was decidedly underdressed for the British winter in a strapless black dress.

She did however keep her legs warm in a pair of black tights, while the look was completed with some black sneakers.

Other stars at the event included Nick Grimshaw and Pixie Geldof.

Hayden does monochrome in leggings

The former Heroes star teamed her wet-look black leggings with a loose white blazer and a white vest, while she also carried a white handbag.

She did, however, choose to add a splash of colour with her shoes, modelling some neon orange peep toe heels, which certainly caught people's eyes.

The simple silhouette of the skin-tight leggings and loose blazer, as well as their neutral colours, meant that the actress's shoes did all the talking.

However, it might be that she regretted choosing such high heels as she was later snapped eyeing up some bright pink trainers which were on display at the event.

Hayden wore her blonde hair loose and kept her make-up natural.

The event was also attended by model Kate Upton, actor Chace Crawford and Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson.

Singer Willy Moon 'loves his socks

Singer Willy Moon 'loves his socks

The singer, who has been compared to the likes of Mark Ronson, is rarely seen out of one of his immaculate suits, but it seems there's always some stylish footwear underneath as when questioned by MTV about the one thing he never leaves home without he answered "socks".

When questioned further about his style, the Yeah, Yeah singer said that he loves three-piece suits, like the blue one he models in his music video, but hates wearing ties.

He added that rather than being inspired by a person, he takes sartorial inspiration from ideas.

"On stage I dress like a rock'n'roll villain," he said. "I love the cartoonification of characters."

Moon is about to embark on a North American tour later this month and we're sure there'll be a fair few pairs of socks in his suitcase.

The actress kept toasty by teaming her Misguided dress with a pair of classic opaque tights, which elongated her legs and set off her Aldo stiletto boots perfectly.

Her choice of outfit, which featured a glamorous studded bustier and leather skirt, ensured the Zoey 101 actress was one of the chicest starlets at the event.

The 19-year-old complemented the ensemble with simple hair and makeup, wearing her locks in a casual half-up half-down style and opting for a classic black eyeliner and red lipstick combination.

The party was held at Aeropastale in the Times Square area of the city, in honour of Victoria's friend and fellow actress Chloe Moretz.

Socks donated to hospital facility

Socks donated to hospital facility

Craven Masonic Lodge donated the socks on the eve of National Dignity Day to Airedale Hospital's Dignity Room.

The day promotes the importance of maintaining the privacy and respect of patients while they use the service, while the Dignity Room was established to provide unexpectedly admitted patients with essentials, such as socks, clothing and toiletries.

Craven Masonic Lodge made the donation after their Christmas party campaign which asked guests to donate pairs of socks to fill large Santa sacks - gathering 243 pairs in total.

A sum of £250, raised by a raffle, was also donated to enhance dementia patients' care.

Martin Barrow, master of Craven Masonic Lodge, told the Craven Herald: "We chose to support the privacy and dignity work of staff at Airedale Hospital because the way patients are treated is so very important. I sincerely hope the donations will go some way to supporting the excellent work that the staff are doing."

Airedale's senior nurse for older people, Fiona Throp said: "These socks are a great boost. Donations like this go a long way to making sure the room is sustained."

However, she did break the trend by adding a black studded clutch bag which complemented the outfit.

Despite dressing to impress, Charlotte didn't pick up any awards herself. The Best International Designer of the Year and Best British Designer of the Year gongs went to Stella McCartney and Christopher Kane, respectively.

Stylish Nick Grimshaw hosted the 2013 awards ceremony fitting in with a quirky suit and windswept quiff hairdo.

Rather than opting for her usual girly dresses she modelled a grungy outfit of black tights with leather ankle boots and a black and grey dress with a black jacket over the top.

She wore her hair loose with gentle waves running through her brunette locks, teaming up smoky eyes and nude lips to enhance her look.

The star may have got some style tips from her famous fashion designer sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

Elizabeth was pictured on the red carpet with similarly grungy looking Christopher Kane, who picked up the Best British Designer of the Year award at the event.

She certainly went for understated style whereas the likes of Kate Hudson wowed in a different way, wearing a floor length orange dress which complemented her figure and skin tone.

Finishing touches were kept low-key with her only accessory being a black strap watch. Her curled hair fell around her shoulders teamed with simple make up.

She was pictured for the photo call of her new film Frances Ha at the 63rd edition of the Berlinale, International Film Festival in Berlin.

Director Noah Baumbach also attended the event in a sleek suit.

The film they were promoting, Frances Ha, is shot entirely in black and white and based in Brooklyn. It explores all forms of emotions from ambition to failure.

The singer stood out from the crowd wearing a lilac dress, adorned with bows around the midriff.

She paired the dress with some black sheer tights and shoe boots, finishing off the ensemble with a black velvet shrug and shoulder bag.

Her pale skin contrasted against a slick of red lipstick and dark hair with blonde sides, adding to her unusual get up.

The star commented how she is a big fan of Bora Aksu after seeing his show last year.

Kate Nash chooses tights again

Kate Nash chooses tights again

The quirky singer dressed to impress in a bold outfit, which consisted of a red playsuit and black opaque tights, as she attended the Temperley show.

She accessorised the outfit with a retro chic bag, ankle boots and a red anchor necklace.

Naturally, she slicked on red lipstick and nail varnish for her trademark look.

Kate arrived wrapped up wearing a calf-length red tartan-style cape to keep warm.

This outfit was dramatically different to the pretty lilac dress which she wore to the Bora Aksu show on day one of the prestigious event, although her legwear was similar.

Fashion icon Olivia Palermo and pop star Pixie Lott were amongst the other celebrities who attended Temperley's show.

The 'All About Tonight' singer, who's nominated for a BRIT Award this week, wowed wearing a figure hugging leather dress.

Effortlessly cool look for Harley

Effortlessly cool look for Harley

While she may be more known for her star studded DJ sets in New York, her laidback approach to fashion is constantly wowing onlookers.

Even for one of the major fashion events of the year, she remained effortlessly cool, wearing black opaque tights and brogues with a double breasted red coat highlighting her slim physique.

With an almost military look - think Cheryl Cole's 'Fight For This Love' music video - she posed for pictures before entering the show.

The star attended the Burberry show to no doubt add further inspiration to her designer wardrobe.

The show attracted celebrities in their dozens, including actresses Rosie Huntingon-Whiteley, Freida Pinto and Kate Beckinsale.

Anna Wintour editor of British Vogue, was also present wearing her trademark large sunglasses alongside her perfectly kept bob hairstyle.

The event was held at Kensington Gardens for London Fashion Week.

The suave and sophisticated singer looked as dapper as ever as he donned a black suit and tie combo and added white socks, perhaps as a nod to one of his musical inspirations, Michael Jackson.

The monochrome look was certainly a hit with BRIT Awards host James Corden who praised JT's appearance, proving that he's still the guy who guys want to be and who girls want to be with.

And Justin's wife, actress Jessica Biel, was certainly impressed by his performance, taking to Twitter so say how proud she was of her hubby.

Taylor kept her look simple with a long-sleeved, black dress and knee high boots. She added patterned sheer tights with lines running down them, showing her glowing tan through the material.

Taylor's had a busy few weeks attending award show after award show, but showed that her busy schedule is not taking its toll as she looked stunning for the UK TV appearance.

The performance was considerably more low key than the extravaganza she took part in at the BRITs last week, which saw her appearing on stage it what looked like a wedding dress before stripping off to reveal black hotpants and a fitted top.

After singing, Taylor chatted to Graham and the talk show host stayed on her good side by not bringing up her relationship with ex boyfriend Harry Styles, who I Knew You Were Trouble is reportedly written about.

The blonde trio looked glamorous, with eight-year-old Roma stealing the limelight as she wore a princess-inspired dress with a satin bow around the waist, along with white tights and silver ballet pumps.

Reality star Lydia and her mum Debbie shot to fame as they appeared on The Only Way is Essex, but now Lydia has ditched the show in favour of becoming a fashion designer.

Other celebrities included Lydia's former co-star Chloe Sims also went to the premiere with her daughter.

Danielle Lloyd arrived with her two sons in tow and has since revealed she is pregnant with her third child with husband Jamie O'Hara.
