Runway To “Hilton Liverpool Launch Party” – Alex Curran In Balmain AGAIN

Some of you didn’t understand why I called Alex Curran a hypocrite for stating that she thinks Balmain prices are ridiculous, yet she spent approximately £27,000 on several pieces.

Well she took her hypocrisy to £33,000 last night when she attended the launch party of a new Hilton Hotel in Liverpool wearing a Balmain leather motorcyle jacket with the Balmain buckle-embellished suede boots.

This jacket cost £6,360.

Balmain have said, “‘Balmain has a very strict policy on celebrity dressing and only works with celebrities that correspond with the brand’s image. We have never worked with Mrs Curran so I assume she has purchased the samples”.”

So was not a loaned to her by Balmain, nor was she given it for free, she – or as someone rightly pointed out earlier this week, her £100k per week earning footballer husband Stevie G – paid for it.

My problem is not with her purchasing the jacket, it’s the ridiculous statement she made in Vogue prior to being seen head-to-toe in Balmain on several occasions.

With all that being said it’s an ace jacket.

Who Wore Balmain Better? Rihanna or Alex Curran

We saw many look from looks from Rihanna during Paris Fashion Week back in October.

On her way to Balmain’s Spring 2010 presentation she was spotted wearing a Balmain ensemble which included a blazer, lace bustier and satin harem pants.

This ensemble looks like it was made for Rihanna, given that she channels “edgy chic” so well.

I like the way that Rihanna has worn her trousers higher and gone without a belt, which the harem pants don’t need.

WAG Alex Curran wore the same look earlier this month to the “Cricket’s Christmas Party” in Liverpool.

How does she always manage to turn everything she wears from Chic to Cheap?

The black lace just looks tacky on her.

The fake tan doesn’t do her any favours either.

Alex was quoted in the January 2010 edition of UK Vogue saying Balmain’s prices are “absolutely ridiculous”.

Funny then that this was the second Balmain look she’d worn in that same week.

For me this is a clear Rihanna victory.

The Liverpool Style Awards 2009

In the US you know a trend has died when Heidi Montag starts wearing it, in the UK we have WAGS.

Alex Curran is a WAG to Liverpool and England footballer Steven Gerrard.

She would rank #2 in the world of WAGs after Colleen Rooney.

Here she has opted for a head-to-toe Balmain Fall 2009 look including a blue blouse accented with a crystal bow,  a leather quilted skirt, and buckle boots from the same collection.

From my break down on Shop Her Closet her look comes to a total of £8,205.

I hate to admit it, but I don’t hate her look

New WAG on the block is Amanda Harrington, girlfriend of Manchester City’s Joey Barton.

She arrived wearing frightful hair and make-up with her Temperley London Alexandria embellished silk tunic.

The bordeaux silk tunic has a beautiful gold and black detail on the yoke and fly away short sleeves.

Her tunic was paired with “Pretty Woman” style thigh-high boots.

Tragic.

Former actress Sheree Murphy is the wife of Harry Kewell who plays for Galatasaray and Australia.

She wore a Luella corseted jacquard mini dress which has to be my favourite look of all these girls.

She’s the only one who doesn’t appear to be trying too hard, and her metallic jacquard mini dress is adorable.

The WAG paired her dress with YSL Trib Two’s.

Vogue/Bvlgari Charity Reception

Olga Kurylenko looks tantalizingly sexy in her black Jasmine di Milo Spring 2010 mini dress, but once again her footwear lets her down.

Just because the dress was presented with them on the runway, that doesn’t make it a good look.

Is the wild child growing up?

Peaches Geldof looked very sophisticated wearing a Dolce & Gabbana ruched dress with black patent heels to this event.

She appears to have moved on from the plum hair colour she was sporting this summer, to this rich auburn colour which really brings out her baby blues.

Bonnie Wright wore a black v-neck leather dress, but it’s her Prada Fall 2009 studded heels which I found myself drooling over.

Alex Curran made the trip down from Liverpool to London support this charity event.

The stylish WAG looked beautiful wearing a Josh Goot printed mini dress with black Topshop ankle boots and a black clutch.

I love this print which we have seen on Little Boots, it’s hauntingly beautiful.

Nancy Dell’Olio wore a draped gold lame three-quarter sleeve Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with single pouf shoulder which we’ve seen on Charlize Theron and Jenna Elfman.

2008 MTV Europe Music Awards

Leona Lewis wore a cutesy pink strapless Marchesa dress with a ruffled bust and jeweled embroidered waistband.

The dress is nice, but it’s such a boring safe choice for the EMA’s.

Amelle Berrabah, of the UK girl group, Sugababes stood out from her band mates, Heidi Range and Keisha Buchanan by wearing the now sold out Preen Power bandage dress.

She wore her dress with a pair of pink lace up boots, which complimented her pink belt.

Heidi (in the middle) was a hot mess wearing a white one-shoulder dress with tights, blue suede shoes and matching earrings.

Keisha faired better wearing a tango red strapless Acne Baroque bustier dress with a double skirt, with open toe lace up boots.

Where the big one is, the little one follows.

Solange Knowles walked the red carpet tonight wearing a strapless dress from the Emporio Armani Fall 2008 collection.

The stunning strapless dress was covered in black shiny discs, which she wore with a black and white striped shrug.

She looks good, I can’t find a fault…oh except for the make-up around her eyes.

I love Estelle’s Jimmy Choo snake patchwork sandals, but I am much less exited about her Bernard Chandran Spring 2009 strapless dress. It feels a bit plain for the singer.

She made up for it by wearing this stunning electric blue strapless Bernard Chandran Spring 2009 dress, with a triangle shaped skirt with embellishments, which she wore when she performed American Boy with Kanye West.

It is about time Kelly Rowland wowed me.

The now UK resident arrived at this event wearing a simple black gown, showed off her amazing figure.

STUNNING.

Katie White of The Ting Tings works the crimped hair look which we have seen on Tyra Banks and Christina Aguilera.

Katie opts for a miss mash of bright colours, and I am loving everything accept the grey skirt. I would have loved something much brighter.

Alex Curran wears a black and ivory playful Krizia Spring 2008 playsuit with YSL platform boots.

It’s a bit out there, but this is the EMAs. The red clutch does not work though.

Daisy Lowe opted for a leather dress, with a gold studded waist belt.

Anastacia shows us she is back wearing a backless golden embellished gown, which shows off her two rather large tattoo’s.

I love that Pink tries to look feminine on the red carpet by wearing a lot of gowns. For a while it worked, but lately it has been very tragic. Case in point.

Duffy was officially the worst dressed at this event.
