24.08.09 In Her Closet

In Fearne Cotton’s Closet – Olivia Rubin

Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton was spotted leaving BBC studios on Saturday wearing a very colourful Olivia Rubin Fall 2009 silk tunic dress with black ankle boots.

The black round neck dress with cropped sleeves was covered in contrasting coloured square panel designs, which were featured heavily in Olivia’s Fall 2009 collection.

I love this dress because of the colourful squares.  They really pop against the black background.

What I never noticed before is that Fearne has so many tattoos. One one each wrist and ankle, plus she has one on her neck.

Who knew she was such a bad girl?

The 26 year old British designer has quite a following.

Cheryl Cole, Lily Allen and Fearne Cotton are all fans of her statement party dresses, which are both colourful and stylish.

Her Fall 2009 collection features sharp peplums, structured silhouettes and unique prints. They are girlie girl pieces with a bit of an edge.

Olivia Rubin’s dresses can be purchased from Asos.com, my-wardrobe.com or Olivia Rubin London.

2009 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Katy Perry looked sensational wearing a thigh-skimming strapless Foley + Corinna dress, adorned with an oversized bow.

Her turquoise dress was set alight with bold red lippie, sky-high blood red Casadei heels, and a red Lulu Guinness lips clutch.

You all know how I feel about tights on the red carpet, so I don’t need to go there.

Amanda Seyfried was very easily my Best Dressed at this event, where she won Film Actress of the Year.

The “Mamma Mia” actress opted for a Peter Pilotto Fall 2009 multi-coloured satin dress, which gathers and drapes from the hip.

I do wish she had worn her hair back, as a lot of the interesting detail appears on the neckline and shoulders, but her sexy strappy gladiator heels, and gold clutch more than make up for that.

Estelle usually opts for complicated, edgy ensembles, but on this occasion she opted for a very beautiful and simple Stella McCartney shell print dress

The slender star wore her dress with a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood pearl and lace peep-toe pumps.

Estelle got the Editor’s Special Award. I will guess this is for conquering America, and just being fabulous.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley oozed effortless chic. The former Burberry model wore a simple black crystal embellished Gucci Fall 2009 mini dress, with open toe shoe boots from the same collection.

Jacquetta Wheeler also wore head-to-toe Gucci. Her look consisted of a dazzling silver sequined tunic, with black leggings, which I prefer to the runway grey version.

Her rock chick look is soften by the Gucci jeweled sandals, but I love that she didn’t opt out of the large chain statement necklace, as it gives her soft rock look an edge.

The two ladies represented Frida Giannini, who was awarded Fashion Designer of the Year.

Alexa Chung, the unofficial Chanel brand ambassador, won Presenter of the Year. She wore a ruffled shouldered silk mini dress, with a nipped in waist.

There’s not point mentioning the hair, as she rarely switches things up.

Her black and white sequined Chanel Spring 2009 ankle boots are worth mentioning. I love the bejeweled oversized bows.

For once this doesn’t feel like she tried too hard, this is the effortless Alexa I once really admired.

Kylie Minogue was named Woman Of The Year and Entrepreneur Of The Year at this event.

She wore her Emanuel Ungaro LBD with a swirly gold embellishment, with a leopard print cropped Dolce & Gabbana jacket, which she paired with a large gold pendent, gold Jimmy Choo’s, and a matching clutch.

Kylie always looks like she’s stuck in the 80s. I’m not a fan of this look at all.

Writer of the Year, Sophie Kinsella looked effortlessly gorgeous wearing a floral print Christian Lacroix Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with a jewel embellished collar detail.

Her ruby red metallic heels perfected this look, making her one of the Best Dressed at this event.

Fearne Cotton never lets me down on the red carpet. She arrived wearing a Moschino red satin dress, with a huge ruffled skirt, in red Moschino pumps, which showed off her tattoo.

I love her blonde hair styled in this big frizzy wave, and her cat-eyes.

Becki Newton, Comedy Actress of the Year, opted for this cute strapless Robert Cavalli pearl-print mini dress, which showed off her killer bod.

Her hair is a bit blah, as are the heels, but she did the right thing by keeping her accessories to a minimum.

Rachel Stevens dressed appropriately for the baking hot weather we experienced in London yesterday.

She opted for a soft pink chiffon dress, with a pleated skirt, and cowl neck, which she accessorised with an Anya Hindmarch Marbled leather clutch clutch, and white T-bar heels.

Having spent some time in the US, Michelle Ryan doesn’t appear to have picked up many red carpet tips. She’s wearing a gorgeous hot pink bubble sleeved Balenciaga maxi dress, but she is not injecting much life into it.

The only thing that excites is her statement necklace.

She won UK TV Actress of the Year at this event.

Kirsty Gallacher continues to fall down in my estimation. This time the TV presenter wore a asymmetrical body-con dress with fabric that was so sheer, you would see her nipples.

19.02.09 Worst Dressed

2009 Brit Awards – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
Colour-blocking is very on trend, but Katie White from the Ting Tings green, plus neon pink and yellow LF Markey Spring 2009 ensemble just hurts my eyes.

Worst Modification Award
Estelle shortened this Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 dress from the runway, and for me in the process ruined it.

The hem looks really awkward and messy.

From the look on her face, she not to happy with this look either.

Worst Hair & Make-Up
Alesha Dixon is such a pretty girl, but her blunt bangs cover up too much of her face. I also did not like her make-up, especially her bubblegum pink lipstick, which matched her heels.

Worst Black Award
Even with that unnecessary added piece of material, Natalie Imbruglia’s strapless black dress is very bland.

Worst Shoes Award
Why wear such a pretty dress, if you are just going to wear a pair of busted shoes?

Alexa Chung’s gorgeous harlequin dress is vintage, but she could have worn some Louboutin’s or Choo’s to match the vibrant nature of her sparkling dress.

Victoria Beckham Matchy Matchy Award
Amanda Holden is wearing waaayyyy to much purple for my liking.

A gold strappy sandal to compliment her embellished halter, would have broken up the matchy matchy look.

Worst Floral Award
Someone should remind Denise Lewis that this is the Brit Awards.

She is not going for afternoon tea with her granny.

Most Disappointing Award
Fearne Cotton is one to rely on during these types of events, but she really lets me down in this blazer and mini skirt combo. Not red carpet ready at all.

Social Events Of The Week

Lorraine Schwartz hosts H.E. Yousef Al Otaiba, New York

Beyonce Knowles sure does love big earrings, and they are usually provided by Lorraine Schwartz for B’s red carpet moments. So it was no wonder the gorgeous singer was guest of honour at Lorraine’s event.

Wearing a clinging Hervé Léger gown, B literally takes my breath away. The grey is so understated, and of works well with her Lorraine Schwartz chandler earrings.

“Late Show with David Letterman”, New York

Dakota Fanning wears a very cute navy playsuit with a Chanel necklace. My problem is the heels. They are a bit too sex up for my liking. I would have put her in gladiator flats.

“The Pink Panther 2″ New York Premiere

Aishwarya Rai wore a Alberta Ferretti Fall 2008 black chiffon draped gown with a plunging neckline.

The stunning beauty never fails to impress on the red carpet. She wore her gown with a silver clutch, and a bedazzling diamond necklace.

From the scalloped edges of her white coat, it was easy to tell that Emily Mortimer was wearing Chloé.

The white cotton coat and embroidered white dress, are both from the Spring 2009 collection.

She complimented her dress with gold heels, and a gold clutch, but she mixed her metals opting for a diamond choker and a silver bracelet.

BAFTA Red Carpet Programme, London

Like a trooper Fearne Cotton pose for photos in the snow whilst presenting the BAFTA Red Carpet Programme at the Bafta building in London.

Her multi-coloured sequined dress is very reminiscent of Jennifer Connelly’s Balmain dress, don’t you think?

Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Of The Year Awards

Amelle Berrabah, Heidi Range and Keisha Buchanan of Sugababes all looked stunning in their floor length gowns for this event in London last week.

These girls really made an effort to stand out on the red carpet. Together they look good, individually, amazing.

Amelle wore a red plunge-neck dress by Jovani.

Heidi wore black plunge-neck Halston Fall 2008 gown, and Keisha wore a strapless sweetheart necklined Ashley Isham Fall 2008 pine green gown.

Dannii Minogue wore a very interesting asymmetric black dress, which has a peplum. She teamed her dress with a gold clutch, and a pair black and white shoes, which remind me of Gwyneth Paltrow’s booties.

Fearne Cotton arrived wearing a plunge-neck black jumpsuit, with her hair swept to one side.

The host of this event also changed into the mini sparkly number, which is much more her style.

Melanie Brown wore an paillette covered halter neck gown from Jenny Packham’s Fall 2008 collection.

The hairstyle does not quite work with the dress, but she has been working hard on looking glamorous and not trashy lately, so I will let it slide on this occasion.

Myleene Klass shows of her curves with a figure-hugging strapless Jonathan Saunders Fall 2008 strapless column dress.

Alesha Dixon won Ultimate Confidence Award, and she took to the pink carpet wearing a strapless sparkly mini dress, with a bow detail.

Jamelia stick to her usual boring style of LBD and slicked back hair.

Kim Cattrall adds a bit of international glamour wearing satin black dress with Pierre Hardy heels.
