Fashion Fringe & Christopher Kane
Regular readers will know that I’m constantly fascinated with how Donatella Versace takes one piece from the runway and creates a totally different look unique to her.
On her visit to London she created a black sleek pencil dress from a one-shoulder top she had presented on the Fall 2009 runway.
Should would’ve look fantastic in either look which is so great about her.
Her heels are from the Versus collection.
Olivia Palmero a self confessed Topshop addict, wore a Matthew Williamson Zig-Zag dress with navy ankle booties.
She’s not quite sporting the ‘Palmero’, but a neat ponytail.
Anna Wintour hasn’t been to London Fashion Week in a very long while and her presence is a BIG deal.
She attended the shows of London hippest designers Marios Schwab and Christopher Kane wearing a reptile – no doubt Prada – coat and a smile sans sunglasses, which is strange because it’s actually sunny in London.
Leigh Lezark wore a crystal print Marios Schwab mini dress which I think looks better with the runway sash tied to the waist.
Michelle Williams was very much the ‘Sophia Bush’ of London Fashion Week, as she was everywhere.
She also pulled an ‘Anna Wintour’ by not wearing anything from the designers who’s shows she attended.
At the Ashish show she wore a cute coral tiered Jenny Packham dress and sunshine yellow peep-toes.
I love that jeweled detail on the neckline.
Michelle must have like the Ashish show so much that she then wore one of his pieces to the Bora Aksu show.
The black sequin tunic dress was covered names of places I’m sure she’s traveled to with Destiny’s Child.
I love the quirky shoes she paired with this dress.
Kate Moss looks more like she’s on vacation rather than sitting front row, but Kate being Kate can wear a trash bag and still work it in the front row.
Sporting shearling jacket when it’s quite warm in London, Alexa Chung give us that ‘so hip it hurts’ look as she waited for the PPQ show.
She wore a LBD with a lace panel, booties and a Miu Miu cross body bag.
Vivienne Westwood Red Label
Joss Stone opts for a classic Westwood tartan ensemble with some questionable open-toe Westwood booties.
Michelle Williams arrived wearing a LBD with an asymmetrical hemline plus a bright fuschia dupioni blazer.
Nicola Roberts opted for a red shimmering dress with ankle strapped heels.
Nicola arrived with Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding who made a huge statement with her PVC mini dress and Giuseppe Zanotti sculpted platform ankle boots with a bright red platform.
Every time I saw Peaches Geldof in New York she looked like a moody sulking teenager, even at the Marchesa show.
So I’m glad for two things: she smiling and she looks adorable wearing a Luella Spring 2009 lilac one-shouldered dress.
It’s not often I really like what she wears, but this a great look for her…sans tights.
