ET Awards 2016: Best Female Style!


fridas 2016Eurovision 2016 – This year we resume the “Eurovision Times Awards” to give prizes (the Fridas) for the best in every category! And you get to vote! Today, we resume the polls with the two categories focused on style!

2016 will be the fourth year for Eurovision Times to organize a new contest (you can check 2013’s results here, the 2014’s ones here, and the 2015’s ones here). As with the past few years, our blog hosts now two contests: TEKO which takes place before the contest and the “Eurovision Times Awards” after the contest. The principle of the ET Awards is simple, in each categories, the staff of this website will nominate a few entries per categories and open polls for the public to vote in them so we can reveal afterwards all the winners. The winners recieve an imaginary trophee, entitled the Fridas in hommage to Frida Boccara, the French Eurovision winner in 1969 with “Un jour, un enfant“.

The seventh award is in the “Artistic” category and it’s “Best Female Style”. Here are the results of the recommendations made by the regular users of Eurovision Times in this category:

  • 8 Austria
  • 4 Australia
  • 3 Italy
  • 3 Serbia
  • 3 Ukraine
  • 2 Bulgaria
  • 2 Norway
  • 2 Spain
  • 1 Albania
  • 1 Bosnia & Herzegovina
  • 1 Czech Republic
  • 1 FYR Macedonia
  • 1 Malta
  • 1 Switzerland

However, it’s down to the staff of Eurovision Times to choose the official nominees. But it’s up to you to vote in our poll below which entry had the best female style this year! You need to click on the country’s name to be redirected to the video of the song. The nominees in alphabetical order are:

 

 

 

  • Austria‘s Zoë Straub at the Grand Final

 

 

 

  • Italy‘s Francesca Michielin at the Grand Final

 

 

 

  • Serbia‘s Sanja Vučić at the Grand Final

 

 

 

  • Ukraine‘s Jamala at the Grand Final

 

 

 

Rules: the polls will be open for a week. At the end of the week, an article will announce the winner of the category but not the detailed results. The full results will however be given to you once all polls are closed so that you don’t get influenced (we never know) in your following votes. Every IP gets only one vote, please do not cheat, do take in consideration to watch very careful to the style before voting and do not vote necessarly for your favorite song but vote regarding to the category. Of course, it’s pointless to vote only for your own country unless you’re really certain it should win. May the best win!

  1. I have to admit I HATE one of the looks nominated :o and just like vocals, the female stars this year were VERY disappointing, and way subpar the male styles where at least 7 of them could have been nominated!

  2. I don’t like Sanja’s style like at all.Dami Im’s gown is ovet the top and kitsch too,imo.
    I like the rest of the nominees.So,should i go for the Austrian princess or Ukraine’s meticulously designed outfit which suits the song and Jamala’s moves on stage perfectly?

    • Jamala’s outfit was the worst part of her performance. The idea of wearing pants beneath a top that tries to function as a dress is always a bad one (remember Anna Vissi?). She looked good from the waist up, but really awkward from the waist down.

  3. All I can say is that Serbia should have kept the original styling and not go for this “Molitva” imitation. I’m a bit torn between Australia’s alien ice princess and Ukraine’s downplayed mourner.

  4. I don’t get what Italy is doing here – she looked like a scared grasshoper to me.
    Other than that it is a difficult choice.
    Sanja’s agressive leather look fitted the feminist nature of the song but the headpiece was unnecessary.
    I loved both Jamala’s and Dami’s stylings but I will give Zoe my vote here. The charm is part of her style and that’s what won over the hearts of many europeans in first place.

  5. I’ll go for Ukraine here. I think the combination of the backdrop and the blue dress with long shawls was well composed. And if it fits well with the music (which it did), we have a successful artistic unity.

  6. Italy for me. I don’t like any of the other outfits at all.

  7. Going back to the Australian dress and the fact it wasn’t comfortable or easy to move in it maybe they wanted to present the isolation and loneliness of the person in the digital world(?).I still don’t really like what i see.

  8. I absolutely adore Italys look <3 So simple yet so effective and even if I dont really usually like that peice of clothing, it really came together with the earthy colours and that amazing styling.I thaught Spain deserved a nomination too, liked the edginess of her styling! ^^

  9. Ukraine was ok, Australia I liked a lot, Serbia was meh and Austrias styling was very plain and boring imo :P

  10. Honestly I thought Dami was Barbara Dex-worthy, so I’m shocked to see her nominated.

  11. Belgium, once again, pushed aside in this category.

  12. Easy choice here, Austria got my vote.

  13. Austria of course. Dami Im had a gorgeous gown on, but it would be considered overdressed even at the Oscars. Something more simple and elegant and less overbearing would suit her much better.

    As for Italy, Ukraine and Serbia I don’t even know what they are doing in this category.

    • But then, who would you have nominated?…

      • It’s true that this year is mostly memorable for the bad sartorial choices of most of the ladies (Spain, Serbia, Iceland, FYRoM, Czechia, Germany, Bosnia etc). I think I would include Bulgaria and Croatia for bringing a costume tailored to their performance (and I think Nina’s second dress is quite a piece of work if you take away those Las Vegas feathery sleeves). Australia and Armenia – you can commend their outfits per se but not the overall effect it produced (overglitziness in the case of Australia, vulgarity in the case of Armenia). And with the process of deduction, Norway for not committing any major fashion crimes.

  14. Voted for Ukraine! Dammi looked hilarious in that dress IMO, Austria was nothing special and I’m not sure that it could be considered as good styling. Maybe I’m subjective but Sanja’s dress was bland and didn’t suit to her song just like her performance… Instead I would pick here Spain, Azerbaijan, Malta, Czech republic.

  15. Italy, Austria and Ukraine are all very good choices, whereas Australia is borderline ridiculous (Dallas, Dynasty???!!! Not even close, Dami.) and Serbia’s look was not the right one for the song, imo. Voted for the most sophisticated, Italy.

    P.S. – I should have nominated Belgium, because I think that Laura was right up there with Italy, Austria, Ukraine and Albania when it comes to style.

  16. Once again Ukraine. Jamala simply was above everyone else in almost everything this year.

  17. I should’ve just nominated Germany here. :P Voted for Italy.

  18. None :P

  19. Dami… she’s the best..
