Paloma Faith In Dolce & Gabbana - Symphonic Grace Tour

On Wednesday evening Paloma Faith’s Symphonic Grace Tour came to a close at The Sage Gateshead in England.

We’ve seen many amazing tour customs, which will give Beyonce Knowles a run for her money in the best tour outfits of 2013, ranging from Tom Ford to Burberry.

Just when I thought she had given up her Dolce devotion, her final look came courtesy of her favourite Italian designers.

This scrumptious red velvet strapless dress with a flared skirt is hardly new – you may remember that Katy Perry wore it back in 2012 for her ‘Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D’ premiere – but like Katy, Paloma has the personality to pull off this look, adding her own flare with a matching netted fascinator and gold pumps, this time deciding upon a red lip to the consistent pink shade she had worn throughout this tour.

Paloma Faith In Tom Ford – In Concert

Following her concerts in London and Liverpool in England this weekend, Paloma Faith performed at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester yesterday evening.

Doing what she does best – electrifying the stage – the British singer appears to have swapped her Dolce & Gabbana phase for a Tom Ford phase, donning her second look from the designer’s Fall 2013 collection.

Yesterday I featured her wearing an orange ‘Ka-Pow’ dress; this time she donned a black version with a double motif.

The theme for this tour is clearly colour, with hot-pink lips being the focus, and she appears to be outdoing her headwear with an even more elaborate fascinator than the last.

Paloma Faith In Tom Ford & Burberry Prorsum - In Concert

Paloma Faith donned two looks this weekend while performing in London and Liverpool.

London: Joined by the Guy Barker Orchestra at the Barbican on Saturday, even if you were in the cheap seats, there is no way you wouldn’t have been able to see Paloma from a distance. Between her flame-coloured updo, bright-pink lip colour and orange Tom Ford ‘Ka-Pow’ frock, I’m pretty sure you could see this brightly coloured look from Mars. I love that Paloma loves colour. For me she never disappoints. You may remember that Rita Wilson wore the black version of this frock to the London premiere of ‘Captain Phillips’ earlier this month.

Paloma Faith In  Burberry Prorsum - In Concert

Liverpool: On Sunday while performing at the Philharmonic Hall, Paloma wore a Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013 black fitted creep dress with an elegant gold metal heart detail at the neckline. Even though she toned down her look, her striking hair – styled with a black fascinator – and red pout ensured that all eyes were firmly on her.

I can’t pick a favourite here, because I love the bold colourful Tom Ford equally as much as the elegant, ladylike Burberry frock. Both were styled effortlessly with plenty of Paloma pizazz.

Mariah Carey In Alexander McQueen - BET Black Girls Rock! 2013

Mariah Carey made an appearance on the BET Black Girls Rock! 2013 stage held at New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday to honour legendary singer Patti Labelle.

The singer, who has never been shy of showing off her body, wore a black crop top with an Alexander McQueen Resort 2013 black skirt featuring gold embroidered details.

You may remember that we first saw Mariah in this skirt when it was formally a dress worn on American Idol back in March last year.

I’m not sure what Mariah was thinking on this occasion, but I don’t find this flattering at all. From the neck down, it’s a no from me.

Rita Ora In Fendi  - iHeartRadio LIVE

Despite posing in a Maison Martin Margiela Couture look on instagram last night, Rita Ora didn’t wear the look for her red carpet arrival or performance for iHeartRadio LIVE presented by Bloomingdale’s yesterday evening.

We also now know that she only dyed the tips of her blonde hair both pink and orange to punk up her ‘do for Fall.

Red Carpet: Wearing head-to-toe Fendi the British singer wore a striped mink-and-knit sweater, striped mink skirt and leather booties with mink detail and sculpted heel all from the Fall 2013 collection. Beads of sweat are forming on my brow just looking at her in this outfit.

Rita Ora In  John Galliano - iHeartRadio LIVE

Performance: She had even more fun with her performance look donning a John Galliano Spring 2014 yellow frock with sheer inserts and laser-cut floral appliqués, styling the look with the black-and-yellow bow front wedges the dress was presented with on the runway. While I love the look, it may just be a tad too short and twee for Rita.

I know many of you do not like Rita’s style, so do you like either of these looks?

Jennifer Hudson In Peter Pilotto - 30th Annual Walter Kaitz Foundation Fundraising Dinner

Jennifer Hudson performed at the 30th Annual Walter Kaitz Foundation Fundraising Dinner held at The New York Marriott Marquis in New York City yesterday evening.

A bold performance deserves a bold look, so the actress/singer donned a Peter Pilotto ‘Caio’ stretch-satin jersey dress from the Fall 2013 collection.

The artful mixed-abstract-pattern-print panels lend a vivid modern vibe to this frock, which features a slash neck, long sleeves with padded shoulders, a cut-out detail to the rear and a short pencil skirt with a fluted hem.

While I can’t say I am a fan of the hat, it does lend some charm as a performance look, with tights and black Saint Laurent ankle booties completing the look.

You may remember that Julianne Hough wore this same dress back in April.
