Balmain x H&M Collection Launch Party

Balmain x H&M Collection Launch Party 1

The Balmain x H&M collection made its global runway debut in front of a celebrity-packed audience in New York City on Tuesday (October 20).

Kendall Jenner, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Diane Kruger, Gigi Hadid, Ellie Goulding, Jourdan Dunn, Alexa Chung, Coco Rocha and Kylie Jenner were among the guests to get an exclusive look at collection designed by Olivier Rousteing.

As you would expect, many of Olivier’s classic pieces have been created for this high-street collection. While the celebs stuck to a black and green colour palette, many of the runway looks incorporated colour and embellishments.

As this collection doesn’t appeal, I will not be standing in line when it goes on sale November 5, but I do like Kendall, Rosie’s, Jourdan’s and Alexa’s sexy, yet powerful looks.

2015 Glamour Woman of the Year Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Glamour Woman of The Year Awards

There were many more lovely ladies besides Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Kate Hudson and Kerry Washington who attended the 2015 Glamour Woman of the Year Awards at Berkeley Square Gardens on Tuesday (June 2) in London, England.

Gemma Chan: The British actress served up visual splendour wearing an Mary Katrantzou’s intricately printed ‘Cassandra’ dress. I’m glad she kept the spirit of this look alive with a moss-green clutch.

Gillian Anderson: There was a distinct lack of drama at this event, so up stepped Gillian Anderson wearing a nude caped gown by Australian couturier Paolo Sebastian. Some might find this a touch dated, but I’m too busy diverting my eyes away from the upper mid section.

Louise Redknapp: The British presenter usually finds herself at near the top of the my best dressed list, but that wasn’t to be the case on this occasion. While I loved the gorgeous cobalt-blue hue and her breakaway from the expected, this Proenza Schouler basket weave fringe dress fails to flatter, plus her pumps were really dull. The only plus side was the complementary Bottega Veneta clutch.

Who Wore Alberta Ferretti Better…Evangeline Lilly or Ellie Goulding?

Who Wore Alberta Ferretti Better Evangeline Lilly or Ellie Goulding

Evangeline Lilly wore a heavenly Alberta Ferretti Spring 2015 blush gown enhanced with white lace embroidery, for the LA premiere of ‘The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies’ back in December, styled with an Edie Parker pearlized clutch and Atelier Swarovski jewels.

Ellie Goulding wore the same gown back in February while attending the 2015 Elle Style Awards, adding just a selection of CARAT* jewels.

The gown is gorgeous, but I’m not a fan of either hairstyle.

Evangeline was perhaps over styled, whereas Ellie put in no effort at all.

In the end I went for Evangeline, as she carried off this look in a more graceful manner.

Ellie Goulding In Alberta Ferretti – 2015 BRIT Awards

Ellie Goulding In Alberta Ferretti - 2015 BRIT Awards

Ellie Goulding attended the 2015 BRIT Awards held at the O2 Arena on Wednesday (February 25) in London, England, following the Elle Style Awards the previous evening.

Using Alberta Ferretti as a one-stop shop, she once again wore a look from the Italian designer’s Spring 2015 collection.

While the dress is quite similar, I much prefer this look, which marries modern ethereality with age-old innocence.

Looking back at her previous look, the other problem was that the nude hue was washing her out; here she’s radiant, regardless of the samey styling.

Ellie Goulding In Alberta Ferretti – 2015 Elle Style Awards

Ellie Goulding In Alberta Ferretti - 2015 Elle Style Awards

Ellie Goulding attended the 2015 Elle Style Awards on Tuesday (February 24) in London, England, where she was one of the presenters on the night.

The singer, who does love a blush-coloured dress, wore a gorgeous gown from Alberta Ferretti’s Spring 2015 collection, which I love for sculpting an overtly feminine silhouette.

Sadly, I feel totally underwhelmed by Ellie in this gown.

Mostly because she fails to breathe any life into the look. I wish she’d done more, something, anything with her hair, and lastly because I had hoped to see this on the red carpet again during Cannes.

You may remember that Evangeline Lilly wore this same dress to ‘The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies’ LA premiere.

The look was complete with CARAT* London jewellery.
