Runway To “Te Amo” Music Video Shoot – Rihanna In Mara Hoffman

Rihanna in currently in France on her “Last Girl On Earth” world tour.

The singer took time out to film the promo for her new single “Te Amo” on a foggy day in Paris.

She ditched her usual edgy looks for a romantic, flowing Mara Hoffman chiffon maxi dress.

The dress has a beautiful print, but I don’t think this is Rihanna opting for a softer look as she’s still sport that edgy two-tone ‘do.

On set the maxi dress with a black crochet detail on the back, billows to reveal her Giuseppe Zanotti boots.

Not loving the black lipstick.

Runway To “Everything to Me” Music Video – Monica In Alexander McQueen

On February 8, Monica shot the promo for her video “Everything to Me” which will be the first single from her new album “Still Standing” which is due for release on March 23rd.

One of the main looks for her video sees her wearing a poufy sleeved red gown from the late Alexander McQueen’s Pre-Fall 2009 collection.

I just love the detail on the back.

Monica has long been an admirer of Alexander McQueen, as she’s worn looks by the late designer many times before.

According the clapper board, this shoot took place just 3 days before the designer tragically passed away.

In another scene she wears an Alexander McQueen look from the Fall 2009 collection.

This blouse with a rosette detail formed part of the hounds-tooth theme which dominated this collection.

I loved this blouse and I glad that Monica has worn this fabulous piece, pairing it with a black pencil skirt.

After Alexander McQueen’s death Monica released a statement which said.

“My new video “Everything To Me,” features several exclusive pieces from Alexander McQueen, a beautiful reflection of his artistic spirit and love for fashion. I sincerely and lovingly dedicate my video to Alexander McQueen and his unforgettable legacy.”

I’m working on a post for McQueen’s final collection which I will post next week.

Runway To “Make Me” Music Video – Janet Jackson In Todd Lynn

Before Rihanna and Beyonce Knowles, Janet Jackson was the all singing all dancing female entertainer we all idolised.

I have mimicked everything from her key earring to her hair styles, plus I’ve even tried to copy her dance routines. For me she is the ultimate American Idol.

During Fashion Week I was lucky enough to see her at both the Versace Spring 2010 presentation and the after party.

She later went onto many other shows in Milan and later Paris, but it seems she was most interested in what was happening at London Fashion Week.

I say that because she wore 2 pieces from Todd Lynn’s Spring 2010 London Fashion Week presentation, which featured metallic shoulder-pads in the video for her new single “Make Me”.

The 43 year old singer she has it.

In the video she shows she still has the Jackson magic with an amazing catchy tune, and an energetic dance routine which takes me back to her “Rhythm Nation” days.

I love the hat-tips to Michael at various points of the video.

Forget Whitney, Janet’s back.

Runway To “Bad Romance” Video – Lady GaGa In Alexander McQueen

I’m one of those people who feels very indifferent to Lady GaGa, but from your comments there’s a strong love/hate divide.

Lucas alerted me to Lady GaGa’s new video “Bad Romance”, and I’ll admit I was in a trance watching her video.

She’s electrifying, energetic and totally captivating.

I love the close up beauty shots of her which allow me to see that under all those crazy costumes, hats and make-up lies a pretty girl.

In the few shots we see of GaGa actually clothed, she rockin 2 pieces from Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 collection.

In the opening sequence she dons a long sleeved gold metallic mini dress with futuristic shades.

At the 3.30 mark in the video, GaGa bravely walks in those staggering armadillo heels whilst wearing a beaded turtle neck dress paired with the runway pants.

From the way she’s walking it looks like you have to trot like a show pony to be actually able to walk in these heels.

At another point in the video GaGa is seen dancing around in Agent Provocateurs “Love” demi bra and panties teamed with a menacing pair of black Alexander McQueen Spring 2010 dragon heels.

She also wears these heels in white paired with matching white underwear.

“Bad Romance” is more like a fashion video than a music video.

I think this maybe the only chance we get to see the more adventurous pieces from the runway, unless they are in editorials.

I hope I’m wrong.

Runway To Music Video Shoot – Whitney Houston In Proenza Schouler

For those who didn’t know WHITNEY’S BACK.

Yesterday her Whitney Houston’s highly-anticipated new album, “I Look To You” when on sale, and she made an appearance on “Good Morning America”.

This weekend singer was spotted leaving her trailer on her way to the set of her latest video shoot in New York.

She appears to have turned back the clock about 20 years, sporting a curly do whilst wearing the sequined version of the Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2009 dress we also saw Amber Valletta wear to the Women In Film’s 2009 Crystal and Lucy Awards.

The singer paired her dress with Sigerson Morrison boots and a huge smile.

Whitney graces the cover of Ebony Magazine’s October 2009 issue. She opens up about shedding her excess baggage and her rise and fall in the industry.

On her life journey and battles: “I shed a lot of stuff, a lot of unnecessary weight in the last three or four years. I left a lot of old luggage behind, and when I did, the blessings just started pouring on me, and the light in my spirit started to lift again.”
