“The Twilight Saga: New Moon” New York Screening

I was slightly disappointed by Gareth Pugh’s Spring 2010 collection when I compared it to his amazing Fall 2009 and Spring 2009 collections.

Jessica Stam proves that I was wrong to judge so harshly, as she totally rocks this Pugh creation.

I didn’t know Stam could do edgy. I always have her down as a cutesy girl.

She wore her dress with the same runway open-toe lace up booties.

Excluding the tattoos, I really like Amber Rose wearing this orange Jil Sander sculpted dress which she has of course shortened.

The colour is fab against her caramel skin.

It looks like the sculpted part of this dress doesn’t quite translate off the runway.

When Katherine Jenkins wore this dress the sculpted panel also looked very limp.

I must say I love Alexa Chung’s navy blue taffeta Katy Rodriguez Fall 2009 dress.

She does love a poufy skirt.

I’m also really attracted to her animal print bag.

As usual despite her fame Kristen Stewart doesn’t have much to smile about.

I like the fact that she attempted to tame the hair.  It’s much better than some of the horrors she’s been sporting lately.

I love the olive colour of her Valentino dress, and the soft pleats but I just can’t get excited about her in this dress.

For the third time this promotion tour Kristen wears Sergio Rossi heels.

Ashley Greene wore a D&G Pre-Fall 2009 black and cream butterfly appliqué dress with a black sash tied to the waist.

Stunning as always.

Nikki Reed has very much been in the background on this promotional tour, the others seem to be taking the limelight.

The stunning actress stood out wearing a gold satin cocktail D&G dress with a gorgeous crystal neckline paired with Jimmy Choo strappy heels.

Agyness Deyn wore a very bewitching lace look.

The dress is interesting, but I don’t like Deyn with black hair. She felt more vibrant as a blonde.

Looks like Halloween came around twice this week.

First Leighton Meester, and now with Taylor Momsen.

What is it with these Gossip Girls?

After Taylor lighten up with the make-up and calmed down with the wannabee rock chick ensembles, the raccoon eyes are back.

I love her Dolce & Gabbana dress, on someone like Dita von Teese it would be amazing.

At 16 showing that much boobage feels a bit wrong.

Vogue’s Fashion Week Dinner Party

This picture of Victoria Beckham and Naomi Campbell really warmed my heart.

Two of our greatest British exports are in London to celebrate all that is good and great about fashion at Vogue’s private dinner party in London last night.

Victoria was – of course – wearing a dress from her new Spring 2010 collection.

I’m glad to see she opted for one of the cute sassy fun pieces, rather then the pencil dresses, and of course I’m thrilled that it’s a colourful piece.

The designer wore her dress with grey YSL Trib Two’s.

Naomi wore a modified, more wearable version of the Alexander McQueen Resort 2010 dress which Drew Barrymore wore recently.

The Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection will never become boring to me no matter how many pieces we see on celebs.

Natalia Vodianova stood alongside the creator of her ensemble wearing a gold embroidered jacket with a black embroidered dress which Stella McCartney wore to the Prada Congo Benefit earlier this year.

Stella opted for a sleek and sexy black coat dress paired with black heels.

I love what she’s done to her hair here, normally she has it pulled back.

Maybe this is her last chance to let her hair down before her much anticipated Spring 2010 show next month.

Agyness Deyn was also in attendance wearing a House of Holland Spring 2010 half black, half beige sleeveless leather tuxedo dress.

I know Agyness is one of fashion’s greatest chameleon, but I much prefer her as a blonde.

The supermodel wore her dress with heels from the same show.

Katie Grand posed alongside Victoria Beckham wearing a pretty pink Giles Spring 2008 strapless dress.

The dress with its voluminous skirt was decorated with laser cut floral details.

I love this dress.

Of course the Brit Pack were there.

Pixie Geldof has finally taken out those god awful extension.

Daisy Lowe wore a black two-tone dress, which is the theme of the night.

But Alexa Chung looked so so cute in her Luella Spring 2010 floral print dress with a heart-shape cut-out on the bodice.

Miley…THIS is the type of cute dress you should be wearing, but in saying that I would prefer it on Selena Gomez.

So proud to write about British fashion, everyone looked fabulous at this event. They could all be up for Best Dressed Of The Week minus Pixie and Daisy.

09.09.09 In Her Closet

In Agyness Deyn’s Closet – Longchamp Gatsby Bag

British model Agyness Deyn was seen carrying her petite pooch as she took a stroll through the SoHo neighborhood of New York recently.

She was also spotted carrying a Longchamp Gatsby Bag, which is the newest addition to Longchamp collection.

It’s quite beautiful bag, but it feels like a formal bag which you would carry to the office, but Agyness causally pairs a colourful tee and denim shorts.

The Gatby bag appeared in the Longchamp Fall 2009 ad campaign featuring fellow Brit model Kate Moss and Daria Werbowy.

“Inglourious Basterds” New York Screening

Despite being the human equivalent to a magpie and being instantly attracted to anything the sparkles, I’m not in love with Diane Kruger’s embellished Miu Miu mini dress as I don’t think it flatters her.

I feel like tugging the skirt down as it sits too high for my liking.

She completed her vixen look with bright red lips and black strappy heels.

Diane’s co-star Mélanie Laurent faired much better wearing a Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2009 Couture black ensemble.

The look consisted of a black pencil skirt, patent waist belt and a sheer halter top, which she lined from the runway version.

Black peep-toes and a black Christian Louboutin clutch completed the look.

Love the look, but I’m not at all crazy about her hair.

Michelle Monaghan looked outstanding wearing a navy blue Rachel Roy Resort 2010 dress with sculptural peaked shoulders.

The bold shoulder is not an easy look to pull off, but Michelle does with ease.

Manolo Blahnik white strappy sandals and a silver cuff complete the look.

Rachel Roy modified Spring 2009 strapless dress to become a spaghetti strapped taupe dress with a less revealing metallic neckline.

Her look is made more interesting with a chunky silver necklace from Michael Kors Fall 2009 collection.

I like designers like Rachel, Donatella Versace and recently Georgina Chapman who modify their own designs to make them more individual.  Take notes Mrs B.

I LOVE Agyness Deyn here.

For once the British model looks glamorous even though she’s wearing a Rocky Horror Show t-shirt.

There’s something about the neatness of her look that I’m drawn too. The sleek bob, the pencil skirt, the red Lulu Guinness lips clutch, her gold strappy Méchante of London’s ‘Elektra’ Rose python heels and the cleanliness of it all.

Not a hint of grunge in sight.

Alexa Chung’s style is not to my liking, but I do appreciate her shirt with a studded collar, plus her H&M skirt, but I can’t bare the greasy hair.

I don’t understand how greasy hair became so trendy.

Actress Julia Stiles looked smart and chic wearing a white satin dress, with an ivory criss cross detail that goes across her back.

She paired her dress with gold gladiator sandals and a white clutch.

Olivia Palermo bucked the short and sassy trend at this event and opted for a ruffled maxi Kate Moss for Topshop dress.

Although she does look elegant and she has added a pony tail to her trademark hairstyle, I can’t help feel a bit bored by her look.

The edgy New Yorker appears to have soften her look.

Melissa George made a huge statement wearing a bold red dress to this screening.

The star was very sophisticated in scarlet as she added black accessories including a studded peep-toes.

Eva Amurri where is your bra?

With twins like those they need support.

Emmanuelle Chriqui at least wore a bra, even though I can see it under her white Kain Label Pocket Tee.

Her electric blue clutch punches up her laid-back look.

Socialite Fabiola Beracasa channels her inner Victoria Beckham wearing a ridiculous headband whilst ruining her gorgeous plum Alexander Wang one-sleeve jersey dress.

With her newly plumped lips Lindsay Lohan walked the red carpet looking a disheveled mess, but then what’s new about that?

I’m sure the actress got many calls from Britney Spears last night, asking for her ratty extensions back.

Agyness Deyn For Harper’s Bazaar US September 2009

Agyness Deyn pays tribute to the late Michael Jackson, on the subscribers cover of the September 2009 issue of US Harper’s Bazaar which was shot by Terry Richardson.

Michael Jackson’s eccentric style will live on forever which is shown in the 6 page editorial.

Deyn wears iconic MJ outfits including the dazzling socks and his iconic glove. Her poses are on point as she balances on the tips of her toes.

In her PYT shoot Deyn wears Moschino, YSL, Stella McCartney and Balmain blazer from the runway, plus MJ’s iconic red leather Thriller jacket from Fierce Costumes and a crystallised Swarovski Rag and Bone blazer.

I love this editorial. Even though Deyn is not my favourite model, I think she captures the energy and spirit of MJ in each picture.
