Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Wang

Aila Wang, niece of Alexander Wang was the first to wear an Alexander Wang Spring 2014 ‘Parental Advisory’, followed by Rihanna, who wore a custom pink piece.

While us mere mortals will have to wait a few more months to get our hands on this top – or pre-order it now from ModaOperandi – Urban Outfitters are bridging the gap with their own ‘Parental Advisory’ sweater which is available to purchase now.

Saint Laurent vs ASOS

People were shocked to discover that Saint Laurent had priced this 90s-inspired floral baby-doll dress with a Peter-Pan collar, black bow and puffed sleeves at a staggering $68,000 – especially considering that a Chanel Couture piece starts at $30,000.

Why is it so expensive? It has a lot to do with the embellishments. Quite what those embellishments consist of has not been disclosed. Rare materials from the bottom of the Blue Lagoon, perhaps.

If you haven’t got $68,000, consider this flirty ASOS frock instead, which seems to be inspired by the expensive Fall 2013 dress.

Shop the ASOS dress from ASOS US, ASOS UK and ASOS International.

Chloe vs Deena & Ozzy

Crafted from the most flawless leather, Chloé’s ‘Lucy’ shoulder bag with its gold-toned chain-link-accented double-shoulder strap from the Fall 2012 collection was considered the four-season ladylike essential.

The chic, timeless carry-all with multi-compartments which would glamourize any look has inspired Deena & Ozzy to create a similar cross-body bag that also features two outer compartments, two zips and chain accents on the straps.

The main difference is that the Deena & Ozzy bag has a pebbled faux-leather finish, and of course the price.

Chloe’s ‘Lucy’ bag would set you back up to £1,935, whereas Deena & Ozzy’s interpretation is only £38.

You can buy the Deena & Ozzy bag from UrbanOutfitters.co.uk in red, brown and teal-blue.

Jessica Alba was spotted headed to Jessica Simpson’s baby shower in LA on Saturday afternoon.

Despite it appearing to be a sunny day in LA, the actress arrived wearing a dark green safari jacket with leather sleeves.

The rest of her look included a simple white tee, a printed scarf and grey leggings.

A yellow Kate Spade New York ‘Chambers Street Carlyle’ croc shoulder bag from the Fall 2012 collection and black boots accessorized her look.

Whilst I couldn’t find the exact jacket Jessica is wearing, I did find two almost identical versions.

Veda’s ‘Jasper’ jacket cost $737 (£482) whereas the almost identical version from Zara.com, which is slightly longer, can be purchased for a mere £79.99.

Soon after her Spring 2012 presentation, Victoria Beckham was spotted wearing her navy and orange colour-block dress on the streets of New York City.

Almost the second it hit the virtual shelves of Net-A-Porter.com, the dress sold out – not surprisingly.

Topshop have been inspired to create a very similar dress. So much so that it even has the VB signature neckline to hemline zipper going down the back.

The VB dress would set you back $2,295, whereas the Topshop dress (sold on Topshop International) is only £49.

You just can’t beat the sleek designs and contouring shape of a VB dress.

Whilst shopping in Brent Cross during the holidays I was shocked to see these Topshop Supreme Extreme platform heels.

The 6.5 inch heels are clearly inspired by the Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ pumps which were the celebrity shoe of 2011, as they were much loved by Victoria Beckham, Lady Gaga and Fan Bingbing.

Now you can try your hand at navigating the streets in these scary looking pumps.

The Daffodile’s would set you back $1,095, but the Supreme Extreme platform pumps only cost $176 from Topshop US and £88 from Topshop International.

I look these pumps and immediately picture long queues at A&E for ankle related injuries.

Would you buy these heels?
