Roberto Cavalli Fall 2014 Front Row

Roberto Cavalli Fall 2014 Front Row

Normally one to draw a big A-list crowd, it was surprising to see so many British stars on the front row at The Roberto Cavalli Fall 2104 show.

Cheryl Cole: Continuing her style re-invention, Cheryl Cole attended the show in a statement-making exotic animal-print mac. With her hair slicked back, a heavy smoky eye and polished accessories it was a dramatic look but I actually quite like it. Not only perfect for the Milan culture, it really suits Cheryl and is great to see her try a more grown-up look.

Ellie Goulding: If there’s one hue to wear this season, it is blue. So it was great to see Ellie bring a dazzling hit of the on-trend shade to the front row in a floor-length Roberto Cavalli gown. Combined with the 70s-style loose flowing cut, it was a look that really suited the British singer. Following from Ellie’s questionable Vivienne Westwood dress at the 2014 Brit Awards, this is a look which really suits Ellie’s bohemian aesthetic and one I think she should stick to.

Samantha Barks: British actress Samantha Barks channelled the true Cavalli woman in a black corseted top with high-shine gold waist belt and animal print pencil skirt. Sexy and empowering, I think Samantha’s shoes are the perfect finishing touch for this simple yet effective red carpet look.

Celebrities Love…Leather Jogging Pants

Leather Jogging Pants Trend

Thanks to the Kanye West/Jimmy Kimmel feud, leather jogging pants have been in the press a lot lately.

Kanye, aka Yezzy, aka genius, aka god, claims he invented leather jogging pants when he took the idea to Fendi six years ago, which they apparently rejected; since then, however, they have appeared on the runways of Fendi, Alexander Wang, Herve Leger by Max Azria, Isabel Marant, Michael Kors and many more.

The leather jogging pant may sound impractical, as pointed out by Jimmy Kimmel, but no one is using these pants for physical activities.

They are seen more as a sporty and comfortable alternative from jeans or leggings, and often come in the form of a hybrid of sweatpants and harem pants.

With its slouchy, relaxed fit and tapered leg they can be dressed up with a sexy pair of heels or booties, or dressed down with sneakers.

Celebs such as Rihanna, Rita Ora, Cheryl Cole, Kelly Rowland, Beyonce Knowles, Alicia Keys, Selena Gomez, Kanye himself, plus many of the trendiest ladies from the fashion pack, including Christine Centenera and Joanna Hillman, have been spotted wearing them.

Yay or nay on Kanye’s invention of the leather jogging pants?

Cheryl Cole In Givenchy – London Heathrow Airport

Cheryl Cole In Givenchy - London Heathrow Airport

Cheryl Cole was spotted at London’s Heathrow Airport earlier today, catching a flight to Germany.

Like Anna Dello Russo and Lily Collins, the ‘Call My Name’ singer opted to wear her Givenchy Fall 2013 abstract print sweater as a mini dress; styling the look with Stuart Weitzman ‘5050’ over-the-knee boots, red-tinted aviator sunglasses, a Kenneth Jay Lane Gunmetal-plated crystal necklace and a black shoulder bag.

I’m not surprised to see Cheryl jump on this is-it-a-dress-no-it’s-a-sweater trend as she has always considered herself stylish and on-trend.

What do you think? Would you wear this sweater as a dress?

You may remember that Ciara wore this same sweater while perched front row at Givenchy’s Spring 2014 show during Paris Fashion Week.

Cheryl Cole In Zuhair Murad – ‘Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Cheryl Cole In Zuhair Murad - 'Jimmy P (Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian)' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Like Fan Bingbing on Wednesday, Cheryl Cole broke a long standing Cannes Film Festival tradition this evening at the ‘Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian)’ premiere.

The UK star, who usually only makes one appearance during this festival, opted not to wear Stéphane Rolland as expected; instead she wore a Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 gown.

Honestly, I’m not that surprised considering I failed to picture any of the looks from the recent Stéphane Rolland Spring 2013 Couture working for the petite singer.

This rich maroon sheer long-sleeve gown with beaded embellishments is more fitting to her Cannes glam style, with a sexy bouffant with a loose braid completing her look.

Last year the L’Oreal girls worked bold colours on the red carpet, however, this year it appears to be all about a more natural look.

Did Cheryl make the right gown choice?

Cheryl Cole In Philosophy – Nice Airport

Cheryl Cole In Philosophy - Nice Airport

Cheryl Cole was spotted arriving in Nice Airport yesterday afternoon ahead of her red carpet appearance later today as the UK ambassador for L’Oréal during Cannes Film Festival.

Sporting an orange glow courtesy of her Philosophy lace-and-cotton shirt dress, and not a dodgy tan, the singer looked very relaxed in this light, refreshing design.

Cheryl’s Pierre Hardy sandals added yet more colour to her look courtesy of the yellow elaphe heel and tan leather.

You may remember that I had these sandals my wish list last week.

I’m hoping that Cheryl shuts the red carpet down in Stéphane Rolland Couture tonight.
