Helena Christensen In Stella McCartney – Swarovski Crystallized Unsigned Model Search Event

Helena Christensen attended the Swarovski Crystallized Unsigned Model Search event in London yesterday.

She’s the latest celebrity to try to make this Stella McCartney Spring 2012 collection work on the red carpet after the latest failure hit the red carpet on Wednesday evening courtesy of Laura Whitmore.

I tried to like this look, but I just can’t get on board with the black embroidered hemline which was incorporated into many pieces within this collection.

Why Stella? Why?

The striped tights are an interesting touch, but between the hemline and the beige pumps it’s yet another no from me despite this being the best of the bunch.

What say you?

    This confuses me, is she trying to be in a Willy Wonka movie??

    I guess I’m not much a fashionista but I adore this dress and really like the look on Helena. The tights are awesome.

    As if this could be any worse as it was she adds the race-track tights…

    un leg looks much shorter than the other, hahaha, thks the posture, weird hemline and those tights, odd in every single angle

    i can’t blame her for wearing the tights as it is a light summer dress being worn in the dead of a london winter, but i pray, for her sake, it looked better in real life than it does in this photograph.

    Another bomb for Stella from this bomb of a collection. Not attractive, not pretty, not edgy, not forward, not cool, not avant garde . An unwearable collection. The madness of trying to wear these clothes must stop.

    With a body like hers it’s hard to do wrong, but this is not working. It’s not even funny!

  8. Katie January 27, 2012 at 16:29 #

    I agree,Helena can make the look work!!

    Ugly collection and heinous tights.

    Loathe, head to toe.

    Not a big fan of this collection to say least but Helena deserves an A for an effort to make this look work.

      I agree, though I think the hose are wrong–maybe solid blue but not striped and not with those shoes. But the dress looks better on her than this collection does on most folks.

    Nice attempt, but I’m with FC – just can’t find anything to celebrate here. Celebrities and media are trying really hard to hawk this unfortunate collection.

  13. Alina January 27, 2012 at 15:02 #

    I can officially say that I hate this collection.

      Yes, me too !

      I gave up on it by Gwyneth Paltrow.

        +N Hate.

    i absolutely adore the dress, and I love Helena’s spin on the dress… well done to both!

    • From Russia With Love January 27, 2012 at 15:21 #

      Totally agree.

    • Cátia Santos Reis January 27, 2012 at 15:56 #

      I don’t love the thights. In fact, I hate them. But I like the dress quite a lot, to be honest. I don’t find anything wrong with this collection.

      I think the hemlines are so cool! I would wear a dress from this collection if I could afford it.

  15. TeaAtTwo January 27, 2012 at 14:47 #

    Am I missing something? Why is terrible collection so popular with celebrities? I know Stella’s chummy with many of them, but really?
    I’d politely make up an excuse and find something that was actually nice.

    Who cares about the hemline when she is wearing those hideous blue tights and the beige pumps on top of them??? The whole thing is just HIDEOUS! The WORST of them all.

  17. argentina January 27, 2012 at 14:46 #

    For me she is already compiting for Worst Dressed of the Year.

    • Mimi January 27, 2012 at 18:19 #

      Agreed, everything is just terrible, it screams attention-clown.

    This collection doesn’t work on the catwalk nor the red carpet. Love Helena’s tights.
