Runway To 21st Birthday Party – Alexandra Burke In Stella McCartney

It wasn’t only Blake Lively who was celebrating a birthday this week, our own Alexandra Burke turned 21 in style.

She had dinner at Nobu Berkeley in Mayfair, before moving on to private members’ club Shoreditch House.

The X Factor winner wore a black silk Stella McCartney top with perforated black leggings from the Fall 2009 collection, paired with Maroon patent Christian Louboutin Décolleté 100 Jazz pumps.

The Chanel quilted clutch was apparently a birthday gift from Simon Cowell. He sure knows how to spoil a lady.

Alexandra party was also a listen party as she treated her friends to the first play of her debut single “Bad Boys”.

These leggings can be purchased from Stella McCartney boutiques and Neiman Marcus for $895.

Who Wore D&G Better? Katy Perry or Alexander Burke


Katy Perry was in Milan to attend the D&G Spring 2009 show back in September, before heading over to the design duo’s showroom to perform a showcase of her songs.

She was sporting a cute nautical dress from D&G’s Spring 2009 collection, with matching heels, and a big red corsage, channeling her usual retro glam.

X-Factor winner Alexandra Burke, wore the same D&G dress to the 2009 Elle Style Awards. The singer was less adventurous with her look, sporting all black accessories, and losing the red corsage, so Katy wins for me.

19.02.09 Best Dressed

2009 Brit Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
This J. Mendel strapless tulle mermaid gown may have been OTT for some of you, but I loved Nicola Roberts in this dress.

For the first time she really stands out from the group. She is glowing, and I particularly love her hair and make-up.

Becki Newton has also worn this dress.

Best Group Award
Girls Aloud as a group looked fantastic last night.

From left to right, Nadine Coyle wore a peachy strapless William Tempest dress with matching Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toes.

Kimberly Walsh opted for a white plunging Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 gown, with cut-outs and embellished trims.

Sarah Harding opted for a sexy Vivienne Westwood peachy taffeta dress, with a very revealing split up the side and satin champagne Christian Louboutin pointy heels. Her hair was style waves.

I will say that Cheryl Cole on the far right, did disappoint me slightly, as the top part of her Georges Chakra dress does not work for me.

Best Black Award
Kylie Minogue looked radiant in a black sequinned floor-length strapless Dolce & Gabbana gown, which had an embellished bow detailed sash.

Best Embellishments Award
Taylor Swift loves to sparkle on the red carpet. She took a break from wearing an embellished dress at the Grammy’s, but she reverted back to her red carpet favourite last night, wearing a silver strapless stone sequin mini Kaufman Franco dress.

Best Use Of Colour Award
I’m in love with electric blue this season, so Alexandra Burke had to make my Best Dressed List wearing a Emilio de la Moreno round neck fitted dress, which she wears with black sgtrappy Christian Louboutin buckle sandals.

Most Daring Award
The singer know as Little Boots, embraced the spirit of this rock n’ roll event by wearing an geometric Alexander McQueen Spring 2009 dress, with YSL grey patent heels.

Most Improved Award
OK it’s still black, but Duffy look considerably better from her Grammy disasters.

Her LBD from Paule Ka’s Spring 2009 collection, I thought looked quite stylish, and her nude and black trim peep-toes complimented her dress very well.

Kinda Like It Award
I was ready to instantly dislike Pixie Geldof’s look before I even saw it, but I actually kinda like it.

Best On Trend Shoe Award
Katherine Jenkins is wearing what is fast becoming the celebrity shoe of choice, the neon pink Alexander McQueen Heart peep-toe pumps.

I personally find this refreshing from the YSL Trib Two’s, which I’m quite frankly tired of seeing on the red carpet.

The singer wore a Azzedine Alaia figure-hugging LWD.

Most Charitable Award
Katy Perry’s bustier was designed by The Blonds to raise money for The Educational Foundation for the Fashion Industries. You can already bid for this Hello Kitty bustier with pink and silver chains, and black beads on Ebay.

Her gladiator heels and leggings are not for sale.
