Front Row @ Erdem Spring 2014

Front Row @ Erdem

London’s It girls took to the front row of Erdem’s Spring 2014 collection to see what lace-accented floral delights the designer had in store for us this time, with one PYT sticking out like a sore thumb.

Alexa Chung: The DJ didn’t appear to get the floral or lace memo, opting for a cosy Topshop knit sweater (which I have in pink) styled with a leather mini skirt, ankle boots and a Burberry Fall 2013 clutch. While she might not have towed the line with the dress code, the look is very much in tune with her style.

Poppy Delevingne: The socialite donned funky crystal-accented DSquared2 shades while wearing a pretty white frock with colourful floral appliqués from Erdem’s Resort 2014 collection which she styled with black pumps. While the footwear wouldn’t have been my first choice, they coordinate well with the black trims on her dress.

Pixie Geldof: I saw the socialite several times yesterday. While she changed her dress for each show – here she’s wearing an Erdem Pre-Fall 2013 floral frock – she did not part with her trusted Dolce & Gabbana animal-print clutch, or her burgundy booties showcased during Christopher Kane’s Fall 2013 collection.

Daisy Lowe: The model channeled her inner Courtney Love, styling her pretty white lace Erdem Resort 2014 frock with workman-like lace-up boots, with black Prada Heritage cat eye sunglasses and a Miu Miu ‘Bowling’ bag completing her look.

Front Row @ Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014

Burberry Front Row

Burberry Prorsum’s pretty, English rose-themed Spring 2014 collection debuted today at Kensington Gardens during London Fashion Week. There were plenty of PYTs, and even a particular One Direction boy, who crowded the front row for the cheerful runway action.

Sienna Miller: Fully embracing the fall season, the Burberry-clad actress, who appears in the label’s Fall 2013 campaign, showed us how the midriff trend might transition to colder temps.  Her fuzzy, forest-green cropped jacket was matched to the slimmer silhouette of a classic pencil skirt in a similar tonal shade. Embellished sandals and a baby-blue clutch didn’t fit in as seamlessly as I would have liked.

Naomie Harris: Sleek and effortless, the actress wore a buttery-yellow sheath dress from the Burberry Resort 2014 collection. Accessorizing with black ankle-strap sandals and a mini-clutch, along with straight locks, she proved that simple is sometimes best.

Paloma Faith: The British singer-songwriter paid homage to the Burberry label with her Fall 2013 goldenrod trench and rubberized skirt, which she paired with a mahogany pumps and studded bag. Of course, all eyes were also on her flame-red curls, which always add an exclamation point to each of her outings.

Front Row @ Mulberry Spring 2014

Front Row @ Mulberry Spring 2014

Mulberry-clad, front-row mavens all gathered on Sunday to see the label’s Spring 2014 collection at Claridges Hotel during London Fashion Week in England.

Alexa Chung: The DJ donned a conservative Mulberry dropped-waist, white button-down dress, accessorized with a black sweater of her shoulders, along with ‘Lizzie’ black wedges and an olive ‘Alexa’ bag, all from the Spring 2014 collection.

Brit Marling: A sporty-chic Brit posed in a black biker jacket, dotty blouse and the ‘Lizzie’ pencil skirt, matched with the same ‘Lizzie’ black shoes worn by Alexa, which all hailed from Spring 2014. The polished white ‘Suffolk’ handbag, also from Spring 2014, as well as long blonde waves, finished the look with an air of sophistication.

Lea Seydoux: The French actress was also decked in the Spring 2014 collection, with her black ‘Betsey’ coat, the ‘School’ ballet-pink printed shirt and ‘Lizzie’ ballet-pink skirt, paired with pumps and the oversized ‘Clemmie’ clutch in a matching blush-nude shade. Nearly nude makeup and a simple centre-parted bob completed the look.

Front Row @ House of Holland Spring 2014

Front Row @ House of Holland Spring 2014

The catwalk was crammed with colour at the House of Holland Spring 2014 presentation on Saturday during London Fashion Week in England, where several starlets turned out to see the Crayola action.

Alexa Chung: The DJ stepped out in a Marios Schwab army-green frock, accented with black vinyl at the bodice and an abstractly printed skirt. Signature Alexa styling included flat black booties and a box clutch.

Nicola Roberts: Going for a vintage spin, the British recording artist wore a green throwback-print House of Holland ensemble. A shoulder bag, metallic-accented T-strap heels and a teased, rolled half-up, half-down ’do completed the throwback effect.

Ellie Goulding: The singer again grounded her look with leather, this time choosing shiny, black micro-shorts by House of Holland paired with a cozy, text-printed sweater in a saturated purple hue and another pair of black ankle booties. Messy waves and a light-pink lip finished out her word play.

Longchamp Flagship Store Opening

Longchamp Flagship Store Opening 14 Sept

Longchamp celebrated the opening of its London flagship store on Regent Street on Saturday evening, inviting a host of celebrity guests.

I was lucky enough to be invited and mingled with a host of celebrity guests across the three floors while being thoroughly entertained by Alexa Chung and Pixie Geldof, who were spinning the decks (see my pictures below).

Zoe Saldana: The beautiful actress, who is currently in London filming her next blockbuster ‘Guardian of the Galaxy’, looked effortless wearing a draped-front ivory silk blouse and shorts from Longchamp’s Spring 2014 collection, which she styled with a ‘Roseau Box’ clutch and taupe Louboutins. She was such a delight, happily posing for a picture for us.

Kate Moss: The model, who has a very strong connection with Longchamp having designed bags for the brand, was the one person who everyone wanted to see close up. She didn’t disappoint, wearing a sexy black keyhole romper with a unique whiplash leather belt, which she accessorized with a blue Kate Moss for Longchamp clutch for a pop of colour.

Alexa Chung: The DJ was in great spirits on the night, opting for a black vinyl Jonathan Saunders ‘Jemima’ bustier dress from the Fall 2013 collection to showcase her darker and sexier side, which she styled with a cute pair of houndstooth ankle-strap pumps. The ivory cardi was just for the red carpet.

Alexa Chung In Carven – ‘It’ Book Launch Party

Alexa Chung In Carven - It Book Launch Party

Alexa Chung attended the launch of her first book ‘It’ at Liberty in London yesterday evening.

The book, which is a collection of personal insights into her fashion influences, style tips, drawings and photographs, is released today.

Continuing her love for French dressing of the Carven kind, the author wore an off-the-shoulder combo dress featuring a blue lace scalloped-neckline bodice, circular flounce and a chocolate-brown full skirt from the brand’s Resort 2014 collection.

I am not a fan of the shoes, but then I don’t think I have ever liked Alexa’s footwear choices; however, I do love the retro appeal of her Dolce & Gabbana ‘Agata’ handbag, simple updo and flawless makeup.

Many of you disliked her GQ Awards Carven look, so do you prefer this look?

Alexa Chung In Carven – GQ Men of the Year Awards

Alexa Chung In Carven - GQ Men of the Year Awards

Alexa Chung took to the red carpet at The Royal Opera House in London this evening for the 2013 GQ Men Of The Year Awards.

The British star wore a Carven Fall 2013 long-sleeved metallic faille top and matching skirt in a light-blue hue, which she disappointingly, but not surprisingly, styled with black pumps.

My favourite part of this look is her Chanel Perspex chain-accented clutch in the shape of a Chanel No. 5 bottle from the Resort 2014 collection.

Normally one to scream for a pop of colour, I think the red lips are too stark for this look on this occasion.

Do you agree?

Alexa Chung In Kenzo – Out In New York City

Alexa Chung In Kenzo - Out In New York City

Alexa Chung was spotted leaving a hotel in New York City on Friday afternoon en route to a meeting in the city.

The TV presenter could have been headed to a meeting with Max and Nina Leykind – founders of Eyeko – who recently signed the British star to collaborate on their mascara and eyeliner brand, which is due to launch in Selfridges this November, with a US debut at Sephora slated for 2014.

Alexa wore a pretty feminine Kenzo multi-coloured floral embroidered peplum dress which she styled with a black shoulder bag and terracotta sandals while carrying her iPhone covered with an Orla Kiely case.

What I love about this look is how the colours really pop against the black background, the effortless styling and chic updo.
