Gucci To Dress Florence Welch For Her North American Tour

Creative Director Frida Giannini stated that she used Florence Welch from Florence and the Machine as her inspiration for the Gucci Fall 2011 collection.

It comes as no surprise that Gucci will be dressing the singer exclusively for her North American tour this summer.

Giannini said, “When Florence first came onto the scene, I was captivated by her eccentric style and her willingness to dare. I felt there was such an authentic energy to her sound and her look. This was confirmed when I met her at the Grammy’s earlier this year. I used one of Florence’s songs, ‘Hurricane Drunk,’ to set the mood for my Autumn Winter women’s show, as she was truly an inspiration for this collection as a modern day icon with her cinematic allure and powerful presence.”

Welch added, “I was extremely flattered when I heard that Frida’s collection had been inspired in part by my performances and I was completely bowled over by her collection, the dresses seemed perfect for my shows, the colours, the shapes, the movement in the fabric. So it seemed natural that we work together on creating some pieces for my upcoming US tour. I’m very grateful to Frida, it’s been a wonderful experience and I can’t wait to get dressed for the stage!”

Florence Welch In YSL – 2011 Met Gala

This is one of two looks Florence Welch wore for the 2011 Met Gala in New York City last night, as the singer also performed.

She arrived with Stefano Pilati wearing a YSL Fall 2011 dress.

Her long draped white dress with sheer sleeves was paired with a feathered coat from the same collection.

I love contrast of all white against her red wavy hair.

Minimal makeup with a pale pink lip shade completed her look.

Florence Welch Front Row @ Valentino Fall 2011

Did Florence Welch read your comments? Because she opted for a different look whilst making her way to her front row seat at the Valentino Fall 2011 presentation in Paris yesterday morning.

Some of you have been looking forward to Florence giving us something different to the floaty, tiered, floral floor-length dresses she’s worn on several occasions recently.

Here we have a Valentino Pre-Fall 2011 look which included a rose pink dress paired with a ruffled leather cropped jacket.

A Valentino clutch and berry pumps which matched her berry lips completed her look.

You’ll also be happy to see a different hairstyle on this occasion.

Front Row @ Chanel’s Fall 2011 Presentation

With Blake Lively back in New York City filming ‘Gossip Girl’, Chanel had to rustle up a B Team to fill their front row yesterday.

Lily Allen made a welcome return to the front row wearing a green tweed Chanel Pre-Fall 2011 coat which she paired with a bright red Chanel quilted bag.

The other Brits in the front row were Florence Welch who managed to pick yet another floral floaty dress from the Chanel Spring 2011 collection.

Alexa Chung wore a cream long sleeve mini dress with grey tights and black pumps, and Welsh singing sensation Duffy opted for a tweed Chanel shift dress which she managed to make look like a Zara copy.Read More…

Florence Welch In Chanel – Chanel Dinner Party

Florence Welch joined her BFF Blake Lively in Paris this weekend to celebrate her becoming the face to the Chanel ‘Mademoiselle’ bag.

The British singer opted for a black sheer Chanel Spring 2011 coat dress.

She’s not wearing Couture, but her look is more chic and way more sophisticated then her friends look.

What is particularly refreshing about this look is that it’s black (bet you never thought you’d hear me say that).

Florence has worn so many nude and neutral colours lately that it’s nice to see her in something different yet in keeping with unique style.

A Chanel ombre necklace completed her look.

Florence Welch In Valentino Couture – Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Oscar Viewing Party

Florence Welch wore yet another Valentino Couture gown at Elton John’s AIDS Foundation’s Oscar Viewing Party, after wearing a Valentino Couture gown on the red carpet at the 2011 Oscars.

Her black long sleeve Valentino Spring 2011 Couture gown with white and blush flower appliqué was paired with Valentino pumps with gold beading.

I much prefer this red carpet look as it feels different to what we’ve seen from Florence before.

The romantic, light and airy nature of this look fits her style perfectly.

Florence Welch In Valentino Couture – 2011 Oscars

Best British Export Award
We usually see Florence Welch at music awards, but as one of the performers at the 2011 Oscars she was also walked the red carpet.

She opted to wear a Valentino Spring 2011 Couture maxi dress.

I’m glad she stayed true to her style by wearing this yellow long sleeve dress with pleated organza and chantilly lace. I love the romantic nature of this look and the flowing tiered skirt.

We are well used to seeing Florence wear this type of colour, so in future I’d love to see her be more daring with colours as she is with her style.

Florence Welch In Elie Saab & YSL – 2011 Grammy Awards

Florence Welch thankfully had two additional looks at the 2011 Grammy Awards last night.

During her performance with Yolanda Adams, Martina McBride, Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson, she stood out in a sea of black looks wearing nude Elie Saab Spring 2010 Couture gown.

I wished worn this fully embroidered lace dress with heart-shaped neckline and lace sleeves on the red carpet, but she totally rocked it on stage.

Elie Saab nude heels completed her look.

After her performance Florence changed her hairstyle into a chic updo and she also changed into a YSL Edition Soir 2011 dress.

I love the draped details on her dove grey halter dress which has cold-shoulders and an open back.

Her matching accessories perfect this look.

These two looks are breath-taking on Florence which makes me wonder how she got it so wrong on the red carpet.

Which was your favourite out of the 3 looks Florence wore last night?

Florence Welch In Givenchy Couture – 2011 Grammy Awards

Doesn’t Translate Award
After Carine Roitfeld wore a look from the Givenchy Couture Spring 2011 collection, I’ve been wondering if this collection can actually translate well on the red carpet.

Florence Welch gave me an answer tonight at the 2011 Grammy Awards, and the answer is no.

Florence looked much better during her performance wearing Elie Saab.

This Givenchy Spring 2011 Couture nude stretch tulle dress with embroidered and sequins washes her out and looked just as bad on TV.

She paired her look with the gold embroidered leather runway heels.
