Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Victoria Beckham was in London recently to no doubt work in her collection which is produced in the UK.

The designer was spotted arriving at London’s Heathrow airport wearing her favourite black blazer, and standard accessories including YSL Trib Two pumps, Hermes Birkin and her blackberry.

What we haven’t seen before are these two tone cord jeans from her own dVb Spring 2010 denim collection.

They are a bit patchwork for my liking, but as usual VB makes them work.

You can view her Spring 2010 denim collection here.

Whilst departing London a few days later Victoria was again spotted in her self designed clothes.

This time she wore a felt cape from her Fall 2009 collection which has zippers on the sleeves.

Victoria is a girl after my own heart because despite the dipping temperatures she’s refusing to wear tights, instead she wears her cape like a dress with her favourite Christian Louboutin black suede ankle boots.

Instead of a Birkin, her chosen arm candy for the flight home was a Loewe Paloma 29 bag from the Resort 2009 collection.

The elegant navy calf bag has gold hardware of a simple hook and looks beautiful with its classic shape.

Katherine Jenkins has had a very busy few days.

On Saturday she donned a rubber dress to perform at G-A-Y at the Heaven Nightclub in London.

With her hair swept to one side she was decorated with hundreds of Swarovski crystals on her shoulder and hair.

On Sunday she sang the national anthem at London’s Wembley Stadium for the NFL match between the New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

She ditched the rubber and this time opted for a more sophisticated look wearing an Alexander McQueen feather print gown.

On Monday the singer arrived in style to promote her new album in Swansea via by helicopter.

She was glowing wearing a white Oscar de la Renta Spring 2009 silk chiffon pleated dress with embroidered details, which she paired with YSL heels.

Katherine really is every woman going from vamp, to sophisticated to a chic lady who lunches.

I was surprised to see her wearing the rubber dress, but it just goes to show she willing to dress for the occasion.

Her Alexander McQueen red & black feather-print gown is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter.com.

Last night at former ‘Countdown’ TV presenter Carol Vorderman wore a grey Victoria Beckham Carmontelle cashmere-blend dress on the red carpet when she attended the ‘Reveal’ magazine party.

The press always give Carol a hard time about what she wears, but she looks fantastic for her 48 years, plus she’s not afraid of fashion.

A few years ago the press criticized her heavily for wearing Roland Mouret Galaxy dresses – she had a blue and green one.

They almost went as far a saying that she shouldn’t have been allowed to wear the dress, which was a favourite of many celebrities.

When I spoke to the Roland Mouret a few weeks ago about the horrible press Carol had received, he shared my disappointment at how the press had treated her.

He said, “I design for every woman”.

“She brought the dress, she looked fantastic in the dress, why shouldn’t she wear the dress?”

Why indeed.

This is not first time Carol has worn a Victoria Beckham dress.

A few weeks ago she was spotted wearing a Victoria Beckham Ribart felt dress which features a zip running from top to bottom down the back.

This dress was equally flattering, skimming her curves as she posed.

This dress is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter US for $1,875, but has sold-out on the international site.

Alexandra Burke may have the No.1 single in the UK – which was the fastest selling single of the year – but she still loves shopping the high-street.

This weekend at the ‘Girlguiding UK’s Big Gig’ at Wembley Arena the singer was spotted wearing two Lipsy London one-sleeved dresses.

She walked the red carpet wearing a Lipsy London mesh one shoulder dress which she paired with knee-high suede boots.

She later performed wearing a Lipsy London VIP asymmetric animal sequin dress.

My favourite of the two is the blue dress. It kind of reminds me of the one-sleeved blue sequined Balmain Fall 2009 dress.

Balmain Spring 2010 Presentation, Paris

Rihanna skipped out on New York Fashion Week, but headed to Paris to view the Balmain Spring 2010 presentation.

She was fully decked out in Balmain wearing a Balmain black tuxedo blazer with a jewel brooch detail on the satin lapel, paired with Balmain Fall 2009 harem pants, Louboutin heels and a Balenciaga Brilliant Pouchette Bague.

I’m not crazy about her blonde streaks, but this is the best I have seen it styled.

Gareth Pugh Spring 2010 Presentation, Paris

Rihanna also attended Gareth Pugh’s Spring 2010 presentation.

She wore a very risqué sheer Gareth Pugh’s Spring 2010 modified dress, which left little to the imagination.

Normally we see look toned down off the runway, but Rihanna does the opposite.

Her look was paired with her favourite Balenciaga Brilliant Pouchette Bague, and Fendi cut-out heels.

Berlin Airport, Germany

On her way to Paris Rihanna arrived at Berlin Airport wearing a grey Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 sweater worn as a mini dress.

Gold jewelery accessorized her look, as did a crazy hat and Christian Louboutin leopard print ankle boots.

Marc Jordan and Katharina Harf’s Wedding, Venice

Rihanna wrapped a black shrug around her shoulders, but we can see enough of her black and grape Alexander Wang one-shoulder dress.

She wore grape lippy to match her dress, Louboutin pigalle heels and carried her Balenciaga clutch again.

Leaving Da Silvano Restaurant, New York

Hiding under her hoodie Rihanna wore Giuseppe Zanotti leopard print ankle boots with her cut-off denim shorts, ghetto gold and sheer top.

2nd Annual House Of Hype Directors Dinner, New York

It’s really hard to explain this sequined Jasmine di Milo Fall 2009 jumpsuit, or the reason why Rihanna decided to wear it with lace glasses.

I guess it’s one of those fashion forward moments she has that just don’t work for me.

Out & About, New York

Like many other celebrities, Rihanna is embracing the thigh-high boot trend as she was spotted in New York wearing a pair of Stella McCartney Perforated thigh-high boots, with a flouncy grey dress.

Whenever I see this picture of Pink and Shakria wearing the same Balmain dress at the VMAs it makes me smile, because both woman took this encounter with such good grace.

One dreads to think what would have happened had it been Mariah Carey.

Shakira said that her stylist had told her that her dress was one-of-a-kind, much to the amusement to us all.

Net-A-Porter International have recently added this chain-embellished leather dress to their virtual shelves for an eye-popping £9,435/€11,578.63.

If you think no-one would pay that much for a dress, it has already sold out in 2 sizes.
