Runway To 2009 MTV EMAs – Beyonce Knowles In David Koma

First Cheryl Cole wore a David Koma dress on Saturday’s X Factor, now Beyonce Knowles has fallen in love with David Koma’s Fall 2009 collection.

The dress has been dubbed “the dustbin lid” dress and the “hub caps” dress, or as Marvel said it looks like a dress which was created from running into a clock shop naked.

Whatever you want to call it David Koma must be very pleased that in a space of a week 2 major stars have worn pieces from his collection.

Beyonce collected her “Best Female” Award at the lacklustre MTV EMAs last night, wearing an off-the-shoulder David Koma Fall 2009 dress with black peep-toe platforms.

I’m not surprised Beyonce wore the black wool dress with the signature tube detailing on the bodice and on the skirt, because she had to follow up with something amazing after her Gareth Pugh looks of last year.

I think she looked pretty darn fantastic in the dress, and I’m glad she support an up and coming designer.

Runway To X Factor Week 3 – Cheryl Cole In Atelier Versace & Julien Macdonald

Before I get to fashion, Rachel Adedeji made a total fool of herself on Saturday night as she morphed into Stacey Solomon. I was so embarrassed for her and annoyed she wasn’t in the bottom two.

Back to fashion.

It was week 3 and Cheryl Cole wore her 3rd Atelier Versace look in a row.

This time she opted for a stunning Grecian style asymmetrical Atelier Versace Spring 2009 gown with a thigh-high split, which we’ve seen before on the red carpet.

The gown was stunning, but I wasn’t happy with the hair.

I understand that her stylist was going for a goddess look, but the part that dangled loosely just bothered me all night, plus the silver headpiece was a bit much with her big hair.

Had she simply pulled her hair back and let the gown do all the talking, I would’ve loved this look.

Once again I struggled to find Dannii Minogue’s gown, but I just had to feature her because she was DROP-DEAD-GORGEOUS on Saturday night.

She wore a breath-taking antique silver embellished gown with exquisite Boucheron jewels and YSL heels whilst sporting old Hollywood marcel waves.

Definitely up for BDOTW.

On Sunday’s result show Cheryl wore a silver paillette Julien Macdonald Spring 2010 mini dress with nude panels and bold shoulders.

The silver paillette’s gave the dress a fish-scale type of look, which she paired with Rupert Sanderson Plato sling back peep-toes.

It was a bold choice for Cheryl, but it wasn’t my favourite look on her. It worked better on the runway.

I really hope she wears Look 32 as that was my favourite from Macdonald’s Spring 2010 collection.

Dannii blew me away again wearing a nude dress with a peplum on one hip, with a dripping effect of embellished details on her dress.

I have a feeling this one is by her favourite designer J’Aton Couture.

I hate pitting them against each other, but it was Dannii’s week.

Update: Dannii confirmed via Twitter that both of her looks are by J’Aton Couture.

Runway To 2009 VH1 Hip Hop Honors Show – Ashanti In Louis Vuitton

Def Jam’s 25th anniversary celebration brought out an all-star lineup of artists who performed at the recent Vh1’s Hip Hop Honors.

Ashanti had an on-stage reunion with Ja Rule as they performed a medley of their hits “Down For You” and “Always On Time”.

She took to the stage wearing lace skin-tight pants, Givenchy Western platform sandals and a Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 blazer.

The camel and black ruched blazer has a ruffle collar which stood up on the runway.

Unlike some crazy artists who are shaving one-side of their heads, Ashanti wisely decided to braid hers.

My hairstylist told me that many girls go to her salon asking for a Cassie do, and each time she refuses to do it.

I would do exactly the same. It’s a ridiculous trend.

Runway To The 2009 Los Premios MTV Latin America Awards Stage

Nelly Furtado wore another studded beige look from Elie Saab’s Spring 2010 collection.

To perform her single “Mi Plan” she wore a chic fitted jacket encrusted in metallic sequins and coordinating draped mini skirt.

She paired her second look with the same peep-toe shoes from the red carpet and fishnet tights.

Nelly’s 3rd Elie Saab look of the night was a navy chiffon dress, with a pixelated printed strips.

The looked was slightly modified as Nelly’s dress has a draped neckline.  The dress was haltered on the runway.

Keeping the fishnet tights, Nelly this time wears platform strappy sandals.

This was my favourite Nelly/Elie look of the night despite her red carpet look being my favourite from the runway out of the 3 looks she wore.

Kelly Rowland hit her second bum notes of the night.

This time wearing a hideous Pam Hogg Fall 2009 gold, black and silver spandex jumpsuit.

I don’t know how anyone can look at themselves in the mirror wearing this monstrosity and say to themselves, “I rock in this look. It’s perfectly acceptable to be seen in public wearing this jumpsuit”.

No Rowland. Hell no.  Not even on stage. * shudders*

Georgina Chapman and Marchesea, Renee Zellweger and Carolina Herrera, Victoria Beckham and Victoria Beckham Collection, Charlize Theron and Dior and Kylie Minogue and Jean Paul Gaultier.

Kylie was in San Francisco last night for the opening night of her US Tour at the Fox Oakland Theatre.

The pint-sized pop princess has worn Jean Paul Gaultier for many of her tours and her current “For You For Me US Tour” is no exception.

Her looks include a sexy silver corset paired with Giuseppe Zanotti heels, jeweled cuffs and a globe headpiece.

Here she wears a Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 couture sparkling mini dress, a leather vest and Christian Louboutin Supra Fifre thigh-high boots.

This stunning shimmering Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 Couture silver halter-neck gown has an ombre gold hem.

A sparkling black leotard is paired with two-tone tights.

A white Jean Paul Gaultier gown was paired with a Sergent’s hats, followed by a sexy Madonna-esqe coned Jean Paul Gaultier bustier paired with leather gloves, a spikey headpiece and thigh-thigh Louboutin.

Each look is more dramatic than the previous. She knows how to dazzle the crowd.

Runway To Wembley Stadium – Girls Aloud In Preen


Last week Cheryl Cole and her Girls Aloud band mates put on a spellbinding show at London’s Wembley Stadium supporting Coldplay.

I thought Girls Aloud supporting Coldplay was a bit strange as their music couldn’t be more different, but Chris Martin had been speaking of his admiration for Girls Aloud in an interview with Q magazine back in July.

The girls set list included their mega hits ‘Sound of the Underground’, ‘Biology’, ‘Love Machine’ and my favourite ‘Something Kinda Ooooh’.

The girls all looks beautiful wearing gorgeous pastel Preen dresses which had been modified from the runway.

Only Kimberly Walsh’s (second from the left) dress has stayed true to it’s original colour scheme, and was no doubt the inspiration for the rest of the modifications.

Do you prefer the modified dresses or the originals?

Runway To The Stage – Eva Longoria At The 2009 ALMA Awards

The ALMA Awards aired last night, and here are the stunning gowns Eva Longoria wore.

Last year she changed 8 times during the night.  This time only 7 changes.

You’ll recognise the first gown because Emily Deschanel wore the strapless version of this stunning tulle Gustavo Cadile Fall 2009 gown at the 2009 Monte Carlo Television Festival Closing Ceremony.

The main difference is that Eva’s gown has been modified to become a one-shouldered gown with a contrast eggplant sash.

I adore this gown from the colour to the tiered skirt, and I’ve been in love with it from the very second I saw it in Cadile’s showroom.

Her second gown was also by Gustavo Cadile. This time she picked a luscious green gown from his Resort 2010 collection.

This gown also has a one-shoulder detail with a fan over her shoulder for added dramatic effect to the volume of the piece.

I don’t ever remember Eva wearing green before, but the colour is vibrant and really pops against her skin.

Eva’s next look was an Angel Sanchez Bridal Spring 2009 gown.

Thankfully this one-shoulder gown doesn’t have a sickly sweet bridal feel to it, as its quite simple with just bow detail on the bodice.

She gives this look an old Hollywood feel with her retro 50s hairstyle.

I’m really disappointed I couldn’t find a full-length version of Eva’s Carlos Miele Fall 2009 gown, as I think it would have looked spectacular on her with the dual prints and the chiffon flowing train.

Those hooped earrings are huge.

I would go as far as to say this Caroline Herrera Fall 2009 gown was my least favourite of the Fall 2009 season, and I dislike it even more on Eva.

It does nothing for her.

The other gowns brings colour, texture and vitality – this is just grey, dull, and unflattering for Eva.

Oscar de la Renta gowns were the 2 final looks for Eva on the night.

I love the blush gown with the sequin overlay. This kind of colour I really allows Eva to glow.

The black and white floral gown feels like it is swamping Eva with the 2 layers. This would be my second least favourite after the Herrera horror.
