Ashley Madekwe has been my fashion darling of London Fashion Week, hot on the strappy heels of Solange Knowles who took the crown for New York.
We’ve seen Ashley looking super slick and sexy at her first-ever Burberry Prorsum show; here is a look at the rest of her looks.
Topshop Unique: Quite the master of the high-low mix, the British actress kick-started her LFW adventure at the Topshop Unique show, where she wore a simple black top with an attention-grabbing forest-green Topshop sequin skirt styled with a Chanel shoulder bag and Charlotte Olympia sandals with a gold platform.
Matthew Williamson: Wearing a fuchsia shirt dress with a tweed wrap plaid skirt from the British designers Pre-Fall 2014 collection, she styled the look with her Burberry Brit leather jacket, that is working its way up my wish list, and her Chanel bag once again.
Whistles: Perhaps my favourite look from her this week (my mind keeps on changing) was her blush-pink strapless Whistles jumpsuit with a fitted bodice and loose-fit tapered pants. This elegant look was styled with Shamballa Jewels earrings and dusky-pink accessories. I love the dark-and-light-pink combo here. She has a keen eye for what works well together.
The Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 fashion show took place during London Fashion Week this afternoon (February 17).
As we’ve come to expect, the hottest ticket in town attracted a lot of celebrity faces, some of whom also attended the menswear show last month. Bradley Cooper didn’t take to the red carpet, but you can see him seated next to Anna Wintour below.
Paloma Faith: After working a summery BDOTY-worthy look for the menswear show, Paloma was in a more Fall-like mood. Wearing pieces from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection including a London landscape printed tee and green jacquard pencil skirt, she wore the same maroon hat she wore for her last red carpet appearance, but it worked much better on this occasion when styled with a matching coat.
Naomie Harris: While the coat-and-open-toe-sandals fashion police may not favour this look, I have to say I’m loving the chic combo of the velvet devore coat with the chartreuse velvet sandal. Did I say love? Yes, LOVE.
Ashley Madekwe attended the Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala held at Skirball Cultural Center on Saturday (January 11) in Los Angeles, California alongside Camilla Belle, Jennifer Morrison and Kate Bosworth.
Looking as stunning as ever, the actress wore a Monique Lhuillier Resort 2014 black-and-white abstract-print strapless gown, keeping the styling simple with a grey clutch and dazzling earrings.
Considering its dramatic nature I love how effortless this look is.
Her strapless dress features a PVC dominatrix-style bodice, which is countered by a sweet striped skirt with horizontal lines – which is often regarded as a no-no, but does nothing to dent the actress’s style credentials.
Metallic Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps, H. Stern jewels and a gold clutch accessorized her look, with a hot-red pout providing the finishing touches.
