Front Row @ Chanel’s Spring 2010 Presentation

Rihanna sent the paparazzi crazy wearing a white bustier and a tweed high-waisted Chanel Pre-Fall 2009 skirt with a multitude of Chanel necklaces that would put Mr T to shame.

Keeping her shades on through-out the show Anna Wintour style, Rihanna also accessorized with a black and red Chanel hand muff/bag.

I bet Rihanna was furious that Leigh Lezark beat her to this Chanel Fall 2009 black and white print leotard over leggings situation.

I can’t really call it a look now can I?

The scary thing is a lot of thought went into this situation because Leigh took the leotard from Look 39, pairing it with the leggings from Look 40.

Despite this being Chanel, you just wouldn’t would you?

Even if Uncle Karl promised you a life-time supply of large quilted bags in various colours the shame of this would haunt you for life.

I got a very strong case of  de ja vu looking at Claudia Schiffer.

Unlike the rest of the celebs who relaxed in the front row, Lily Allen was at the Chanel Spring 2010 show during Paris Fashion Week in a work capacity

She looked adorable as she performed a live set for the waiting fashionistas.

I would assume her black and gold sequined Chanel dress adorned with ostrich feathers was custom made, but it could be part of the collection.

The singer also wore two tone tights with Chanel Spring 2009 Couture ankle strap heels.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – Dolce & Gabbana Party

Kylie Minogue would’ve been the stand out guest, arriving wearing a hot pink strapless Dolce & Gabbana ruched cocktail dress with an embellished belt, and gold heels.

Love the colour and the confident sassy strut.

Eva Herzigova wore black sheer and lace sleeveless Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 dress with ruffled straps and a sheer front panel.

The straps have been replace by the runway sleeves, but this modification makes the dress even more sexier.

Eva completes the look with black peep-toes, which are trimmed with lace.

Of all the looks Peaches Geldof has sported at Cannes, I love this one.

It much more her style, than those gowns she has been wearing.

This silver ruched Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress is very much like Kylie’s dress, but with square paillette detailed pom pom sleeves.

It must have been a busy night because the hair, earrings and make-up all remain the same, from her previous events.

Lucky girl.

I believe this is the image they should put in a dictionary to describe ‘death warmed up’.

Pixie Geldof’s being pale is not the issue, its that heavy make-up which is so garish.

I do like her navy and white anchor print plunging halter D&G Spring 2009 gown, just not on her but I’m glad she opted out of the pleated gold lame fan pieces.

If you hate this look, it could’ve been worse because she was spotted at Dolce & Gabbana’s store in London trying on an animal print gown.

Olivia Palermo decided to ignore the unwritten rule of courtesy, by wearing a light blue off-the-shoulder dress not designed by her hosts.

Looking through the Dolce & Gabbana collection, I struggled to find a piece that I could’ve pictured her wearing, so I guess she made the right choice.

I adore the colour on her.  It’s a very pretty dress which she accessorizes with silver jewels.

Of course she is wearing her favourite YSL tribute sandals.

I guess she only packed one pair of heels for this trip.

Kerry Washington wore a Dolce & Gabbana silver cocktail dress with exaggerated off the shoulder sleeves.

Again, this is not a favourite Kerry look for me.

Dita Von Teese sticks to her trademark polished style wearing a black sequin Dolce & Gabbana dress, with exaggerated sleeves.

Her elbow-length lace gloves adding an extra touch of glamour, whilst her make-up was flawless and her necklace was striking.

Claudia Schiffer wore a black strapless Dolce & Gabbana gown with a black clutch, black peep-toes, and a single gold bracelet.

I know Carine Roitfeld is a style maven to many of you, so all I will say about this look is we all have our bad days.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – Amend Charity Luncheon

Last year, many of you accused Kerry Washington of always playing it safe.

She didn’t play it safe at the Met Gala, and I wouldn’t call this Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 ensemble a safe option either.

So it looks like she has finally shrugged off the ‘safe’ label wouldn’t you agree?

Her look consisted of a futuristic silver metallic bustier with a pale pink tulip skirt, gold platform heels with a velvet ankle tie, and a silver embroidered clutch.

I love that she is taking risks without over-doing it and without looking ridiculous.

Rihanna wore the raspberry runway skirt to the DKMS Gala.

Michelle Yeoh hosted this event wearing a Caribbean blue Roberto Cavalli cowl neck dress, with a shutter pleated detail on the front.

This is a sophisticated evening dress, but Michelle makes it work for her daytime event.

Mary Louise Parker wore the gown version of this dress to the Emmy’s last year.

Claudia Schiffer opted for a silk nude coloured dress with kimono-style sleeves which gave her a warm glow.

Her look was completed with beige accessories.

V59 Magazine’s 6 Supermodel Cover Swimsuit Issue

Kate Moss in a hairy Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2009 jacket, is one of 6 supermodels to grace the cover of V Magazine’s first-ever swimsuit issue, which was shot by Mario Testino.

Inside the issue you will also find other supers including Carmen Kass, Isabeli Fontana, Natalia Vodianova and some hot well oiled guys to drool over in various beach and pool side pics, that will have you longing for your summer vacations.

Claudia Schiffer in handcuffs, strikes a one-legged pose wearing a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 swimsuit, and YSL cage booties.

Matthew Williamson for H&M campaign girl Daria Werbowy, is an absolute knock out, wearing a Versace Spring 2009 cut-out Julie Verhoeven print swimsuit.

Wearing only bikini bottoms, Eva Herzigova’s look is inspired by Marilyn Monroe. Even in the simplest, plainest swimsuit Gisele Bündchen still stands out.

Naomi Campbell takes on a Playboy look, wearing a one-piece strapless swimsuit, gold cuffs and bunny ears. I swear I have seen Naomi pictures before. This is an old picture, right?

I will be standing at my newsagents on May, 6 with Kate and Daria’s covers in my hand, deciding which to buy. You?

Who Wore Versace On The Cover Better? Claudia Schiffer, Elle Macpherson or Hayden Panettiere



One Versace dress made the cover of 3 British titles recently.

Vogue UK can take the bragging rights, as Claudia Schiffer appeared in their April 2009 issue first, wearing this metallic Versace dress on their cover.

Elle Macpherson graced the Tatler May 2009 issue, whilst the only non-model of this trio, Hayden Panettiere, wore this dress on the May 2009 cover of InStyle UK

All 3 look great, but this dress feels less predictable, and looks far better on Hayden, so she wins for me.

Frida Giannini’s Gucci Dinner

Frida Giannini, the Creative Director at Gucci, had this dinner party thrown in her honour by Vogue UK.

She was impeccably dressed in her own Fall 2009 collection, which included a stunning gun metal grey chain-mail tunic, and thigh high black leather boots, which as must as we’ll try, we won’t escape this Fall.

Emilia Fox was one of my favourites at this event, as she just oozes grace, and she has that classic glamour about her, that makes her one to watch on the red carpet.

Looking every inch the English rose, she arrived in a satin teal gown, which was exquisite on her.

Erin O’Connor is so beautiful and statuesque. Everything she wears looks instantly regal, even this stunning multi-coloured blue and green chiffon Gucci Spring 2009 gown.

This may have been a dinner to toast Frida, but Jasmine Guinness wore a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 gold jacket, over her sexy black gown.

I love the jacket, as it added an edge to her look, without making her look ridiculous.

VV Brown opted out of the floor-length gowns. Instead singer wore a mini T-shirt Ashish Fall 2009 dress, which was covered in sequined multi-coloured geometric prints.

Her look was completed with her trademark quiff, gladiator heels, and a pair of geeky Urkel specs.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley gives an ethereal glow wearing a silvery grey asymmetrical Grecian Gucci gown.

Lisa B was dressed in a knock-out deep red satin Gucci gown. The draping flattered Lisa’s figure, and the only accessory this beauty needed was a clutch.

Peaches Geldof tries to look grown up in her berry Gucci gown, but I’m sorry her tattoos really ruin this look for me. Plus she is strangely hunched over, in what I believe is her signature pose.

I will give her a 5 out 10 for her effort.

It doesn’t matter what her sister Pixie Geldof wears, she will always looks like she just got out of bed after a heavy night on the sauce.

Just when you think Claudia Schiffer couldn’t get more boring on the red carpet.
