Grey Goose Character & Cocktails Winter Fundraiser

There has been much speculation this weekend as to whether Kelly Rowland or Mel B will be replacing Dannii Mingoue as the next X Factor judge.

Kelly let her amazing Basil Soda Fall 2009 Couture gown do all the talking and it was saying “WOW”.

I don’t think I’ve seen her look this amazing since her Destiny’s Child days.

The colour is divine on her plus the cut flatters her figure and gives her curves.

First contender for BDOTW.

Model Natalie Suliman also wore a gown from the Basil Soda Fall 2009 Couture collection.

Her gorgeous green chiffon gown was dripping with embellish details which cascaded down her gown.

Anouck Lepere opted for a white Mark Fast scoop neck knit dress.

The drop-waist dress had heavy long fringing to give it a flapper feel which I love, but I just didn’t love the black patent pumps.

White dresses and black shoes have always been a no-no in my book.

Elizabeth Hurley wore a white fur gilet, which despite it’s size feels like it’s covering the whole of her gown.

Such a shame because this is a gorgeous colour on Liz.

I do like the print on Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s metallic dress, but the style of the dress feel so mumsy.

Frankie Sandford, Mollie King, Una Healy, Rochelle Wiseman and Vanessa White of the Saturdays look stunning in their mix of spring ready pastel floor length gowns, mini dresses and LBDs.

Prada Congo Benefit Party

Stella McCartney looks beautiful wearing a black jacquard short sleeved dress from her own Resort 2010 collection.

I love the faux leather wrap around belt as it stands out more than the runway belt, and I also love her self designed mesh sandals.

Stella does wear her hair down from time to time, but we’re most used to seeing this pulled back style.

This “just thrown” on effortless look is one of my favourite this week.

When I first saw this textured silk Lanvin Spring 2009 one-shouldered dress on the runway, I knew it would need someone on the red carpet to bring it to life and I was right.

Princess Rosario Nadal of Bulgaria does just that as the dress hangs better on her.

On the runway it seems to sit too high on the model waist.

I love her choice of an ivory clutch and pewter strappy sandals.

Absolutely stunning.

Natalia Vodianova and Valentino are still inseparable. The designer and his one-time muse arrived at this event arm in arm which is good to see.

The barefaced model wore a black ensemble including a satin skirt and jersey top, under a champagne coloured Prada crushed silk coat.

Anouck Lepere is another stunning model who doesn’t need make-up to look beautiful.

She glowed wearing a red crepe sleeved dress with gathered details on the shouldered and at the waist.

Her dress is stunning but her red and black t-bar heels are drool worthy as they have a red and black satin bow on the heel.

Gold armlets and a black bag complete this look.

Model Liberty Ross showed off her toned legs wearing a sexy black Alexander McQueen stretch lace bandage dress which she toughen up with a pair of Alexander McQueen open-toe boots with the fold-over panels up.

A Pauric Sweeney envelope clutch completes this sexy look with a bit of a edge.

The McCartney Family Launches “Meat-Free Monday”

“Meat Free Monday” is the McCartney family’s new initiative to encourage meat-eaters to forgo meat for one day each week. I did my bit yesterday as I only had sushi.

Stella McCartney’s muse Kate Bosworth showed her support for the campaign, and for Stella McCartney’s Resort 2010 collection.

The actress wore a stunning cute ivory skirt suit.

The skirt is high waisted with a cute bow detailing, and she opted to wear her look with a white tank instead of the black runway shirt, which is perfect for a sunny day in London.

Her look was complete with Stella McCartney platform pumps.

I really love Stella McCartney’s casual style as much as her glamorous style.

Casual was the order of the day as she wore a striped blazer, a white tank, and jeans. It’s a simple everyday look, but with does of McCartney magic.

Model Anouck Lepere was also on hand for support.

She wore a grey sequined tunic dress, with low slung tie and gold pumps.

It’s like a fabulous well-dress family picnic.

I don’t think I will ever tire of this Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection.

Lanvin London Boutique Opening Party


At Lanvin’s London boutique opening party, I am glad these two ladies opted for the most vibrant pieces.

Yasmin le Bon wore a three-tone blue one-shouldered Lanvin Spring 2009 dress.

She thankfully kept her accessories to a minimum, because this dress has a beautiful bouquet of floral embellishments that speak for themselves.

I love pink embellishments on the skirt, as they really pop against the navy blue. Her nude satin pumps completed the look.


Model Anouck Lepère wore a stunning nude Lanvin Spring 2009 strapless dress, which had glittering leopard print.

I like that Anouck wore her dress with a belt, to give her dress more shape, and her red double t-bar pumps were the perfect finishing touch.
