Gwen Stefani In Stella McCartney – 2011 Cannes Film Festival “The Tree Of Life” Premiere

As the newest L’Oreal girl on the block, I was most excited about seeing Gwen Stefani at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.

This evening the singer/designer arrived on the red carpet with her husband Gavin Rossdale, to attend “The Tree Of Life” Premiere.

Sadly my excitement turned to a tinge of disappointment at the overwhelming feeling of deja vu.

That’s because supermodel Iman has already worn this sequined same Stella McCartney jumpsuit in gold to the 2011 Met Gala just two weeks ago to the day, plus she also sported a similar mass of voluminous curly locks.

I don’t hate the look, but I wish I hadn’t seen it before and I also wish she’d opted for a gown.

I love that she opted for a punchy pink pout, instead of her trademark red lippie.

Gwen Stefani In Elle US May 2011

Gwen Stefani graces the cover of Elle US May 2011 issue, which focuses on women in music.

Dusan Reljin shot the beautiful singer and designer wearing Givenchy and Michael Kors.

Gwen shares that she takes much pride in her appearance, but she would never place herself in the same category as Lady Gaga or Katy Perry, as she thinks they are much sexier than her.

I totally disagree. Gwen is waaaay hotter than those two put together.

The Women in Music issue also features multiple female singers stars including Jennifer Hudson, Adele, Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Beyonce and Willow Smith.

Read more at Elle.com. The May issue hits newsstands April 12.

Here are some extracts from Gwen’s interview:

On writing hits: “I do! Why wouldn’t you want that many people listening to the songs that you wrote? There’s no way to go back after you have had it. So the intentions of even the solo records were always about trying to write those guilty-pleasure albums that just get in your head and you can’t get out. I’m not cool, I’m not into the B-sides. Prince, who is one of my idols, gave me some advice when I worked with him: “Have you ever just tried writing a hit? Like, don’t just try writing a song, try and write a hit song.” I remember him saying that and me thinking, Yeah, you’re right. Why would you write anything else?”Read More…

L.A.M.B. Fall 2011

Gwen Stefani presented her L.A.M.B. Fall 2011 collection which closed Fashion Week yesterday

Like Victoria Beckham, the L.A.M.B. collection was a showcase of Gwen’s personal style.

She presented 48 looks in a very unique fashion.

The show was split into 6 sections which their own soundtracks.

The ‘Solider Girl’ showcased khaki trench coasts, menswear inspired shirts and ties, camouflage floral print blouse and a houndstooth ruffle skirt.

The ‘Ragga Muffin Girls’ gave us navajo print chiffon dresses, halter bow blouses and menswear v neck sweaters.

The ‘London Girls’ wore 70s inspired leather motorcycle jackets, menswear blazers and plaid punker pants.

The ‘Buffalo Girls’ were just as edgy teaming patchwork sweaters with ties and oversized coats.

‘Mod Girls’ presented leopard print dresses, tunics and jersey pants.

The final group were the ‘Glamour Girls’. They all wore black looks ranging from wide leg palazzo pants to bustier dresses and jumpsuits.

Gwen took her bow at the end of the show wearing my favourite look from the collection; a printed one-shoulder wide-leg jumpsuit.

She started to take her bow on her own until her cute son Kingston ran onto the runway to join his mother much to her surprise.

You can see the video here.

Front Row: Christian Siriano, Mr J and Lorenzo Martone

Favourites: Navajo print maxi dress and Gwen Stefani’s jumpsuit

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Gwen Stefani, Rihanna and AnnaLynne McCord

Gwen Stefani In Prada & Rafael Cennamo – Kennedy Center Honors

Gwen Stefani and her “No Doubt” crew all walked the red carpet at the 33rd Kennedy Center Honors held in Washington DC last night.

There were all decked out in Prada, but it was Gwen Stefani who stood out wearing a canary yellow Prada silk dress, and because she’s looked absolutely breath-taking.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen her so radiant.

Her Prada dress has a black patent leather bow belt and a black trim on the hem.

Gwen teased her hair into an elegant half up, half down style and her lips were trademark red.

A black embroidered Prada clutch completed the look.

Looks like I might be re-gigging my BDOTY list again. This look is totally flawless.

On Saturday night Gwen Stefani arrived with her boys for the formal artist’s dinner for the Kennedy Center Honors at the United States Department of State in Washington, D.C.

She graced the red carpet wearing a Rafael Cennamo Resort 2011 gown.

Her strapless fan appliqué trumpet gown was perfectly styled with her trademark red lips and corkscrew curls.

I haven’t been a fan of Gwen red carpet looks for a while and here she gives us two amazing looks in two days.

I love them both but the Prada is to-die-for.

Gwen Stefani In Chanel – MOCA’s Annual Gala “The Artist’s Museum Happening”

Gwen Stefani arrived with her husband Gavin Rossdale on the red carpet for MOCA’s Annual Gala “The Artist’s Museum Happening”, in LA this weekend.

She opted to shorten her Chanel Pre-Fall 2010 dress from the Paris-Shanghai Collection.

The singer made the right choice by shortened her black embroidered dress, because the runway version may have been a tad matronly on her.

Chanel Fine jewelry and black accessories complete her look.

This isn’t my favourite look for Gwen, but I adore the embellished neckline.

MOCA 30th Anniversary Gala

This event has got to be one of the Best Dressed events I’ve ever seen, as everyone made a magnificent effort.

I’ve never been one to go gaga over Chloe Sevigny, but I absolutely LOVE her in this Miu Miu Spring 2010 dress.

It’s something only the likes of Chloe and Zooey Deschanel could pull off without looking like a grown woman dressing childishly.

Her bejewelled turtle neck dress is so playful and dainty, plus I love her neutral accessories which complement her dress well.

*Sighs*

Kate Beckinsale blew me away at this event.

I love the way her midnight green asymmetrical Andrew GN Spring 2010 gown appears to snake around her toned body.

The draping is magnificent, the embellished belt and shoulder detail adds texture and the look is pulled together with an elegant updo.

This is one of my favourite looks from Kate, who completed the look with a black Jenny Packham Baguette clutch.

Christina Ricci wasn’t brave enough to wear the runway version of this Prada Spring 2010 cloque baby doll dress, but she settled on a forest green modified version which she accented with a silver waist band.

Christina isn’t shy at taking risks, but baring her panties at this event wouldn’t have been quite appropriate.

Is it me or does Christina change her hair colour every time she hits the red carpet?

Jessica Alba’s also opted for a Prada Spring 2010 cloque halter dress.

Looking at the closet match to the runway, I would have preferred her to have worn the runway look as it’s far more interesting.

Red satin Prada heels and a red velvet Prada Velluto Sere clutch from the Fall 2009 collection complete this rather tame look.

It looks like what we saw on the Prada and Miu Miu Spring 2010 runway’s may not be exactly what we will see in the boutique’s.

Eva Mendes’ Miu Miu Spring 2010 black and beige dress, takes the jewel embroidered detail from the runway look to perfect her sexy sheath dress.

I adore her look, especially the hair accessory which adds a bit of pizazz to her classy updo.

The edgier runway version wouldn’t have quite worked for her.

Normally I can match a dress to a celebrity the moment I see it on the runway, which also helps me memorize runway looks.

This Marchesa Spring 2010 embroidered black tulle gown with draped sleeves looks like it was made for Shirley Manson, despite that fact that I would never have consider her for this stunning gown.

The singer gives the gown a romantic Gothic vibe I don’t believe Georgina Chapman was going for, but Shirley really works this look.

Daisy Fuentes saw the magic which Gustavo Cadile created for Catherine Zeta-Jones last week, and created it for herself wearing one of his luscious gowns.

I love the amethyst colour of her Spring 2009 halter chiffon gown, which is slightly modified from the runway as hers has jeweled straps.

This would’ve been the reason she pulled back her hair, so we could see that stunning detail.

Last week Lady GaGa and Carine Roitfeld opted for risque looks from Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2010 collection, but Gwen Stefani opted for something less revealing.

The singer walked the red carpet with her husband wearing a white bustier with a black lace trim, paired with tapered pants from the same collection.

Sexy strappy sandals completed her look.

I keep looking at Zoe Saldana’s strapless Marchesa Spring 2010 tulle column gown with sequin detail and keep thinking that something is missing.

I think a waist band, either contrasting or the same colour of the gown would have given her more of a defined waist.

The actress carried a black Jenny Packham Lipstick clutch to complete her look.

I’m so thankful Carine Roitfeld removed all those OTT silver embellishments from her Balmain Spring 2009 as they were overkill.

The dress is much more appealing without all that bling, and I’m a girl who love a bit of bling.

Christian Louboutin Supra Fifre 120 thigh-high boots complete this effortless look.

Unlike most of the others on this red carpet, Kate Bosworth doesn’t really rock my world.

Her animal print Proenza Schouler Spring 2010 dress is nice enough, but she could’ve blown us away with much more interesting pieces from this collection.

I will always love how Rose McGowan always gives us va-va-voom.

Jessica Rabbit eat your heart own.

Rose’s red Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2009 gown is so sensual and divine.

Of course she adds a red lip to her look.

My only criticism is that she would have looked a hell of a lot better with her hair pulled back.

Fashionista Liz Goldwyn always likes to wear the unexpected.

Her fruity watermelon Sonia Rykiel Spring 2010 jumpsuit was paired with a dazzling pair of heels from the same collection.

Miuccia Prada makes her self designed Prada Spring 2010 dress more wearable, by adding a shirt dress under her chandelier-styled crystal embroidered dress.

Carey Mulligan was also wearing Prada, like so many others.

The Oscar hopeful donned a heavily embroidered Prada Spring 2010 dress paired with shoes with a clear heel from the same collection.

She just keeps getting it right. I predict hope she blows us away this coming Awards season.

One person who never lets me down on the red carpet is Marisa Tomei.

I’m just loving this burst of colour.

The actress wore a 1950s Jean Desses Haute Couture bubble-gum pink cocktail dress from Decades Inc.

Boucheron jewels and a Leiber purse complete this outstanding look.

This is one I will come back to drool over again and again.

Rachel Zoe opted for a one-shouldered Pucci gown

Ciara might have been wearing those fierce Christian Louboutin studded pigalle’s but the rest of her look is really disappointing.

When so many stepped outside the box, or wowed us with drama and colour Ciara’s look is very blah and uninspired.

Mr & Mrs Snoozeville were there also.

She was wearing Armani Prive.
