Who Wore French Connection Better? Katherine Jenkins or Lauren Bosworth

I always love it when celebrities wear high street brands.

Last week we saw Katy Perry and Rihanna battle it out in H&M. This time we have Katherine Jenkins and Lauren Bosworth both wearing French Connection.

Katherine Jenkins looked very pretty in pink when she attended the “Samsung Pink Ribbon Breast Awareness Day” at Westfield Shopping center in London last month.

I wasn’t crazy about her black Trib Two’s, but I did love those stunning silver earrings.

Lauren Bosworth partied with Stephanie Pratt and Lauren Conrad at “Maxim’s Launch Party For Assassin’s Creed II” recently wearing the same dress is black.

I’m sure the ladies had no interest in the computer game, but it gave them all an excuse to dress up.

Lo kept her look very simple by only adding black ankle boots to her look.

I dislike both footwear choices, but I love the bright pink colour on Katherine so she wins for me.

This dress is available to purchase in both pink and black from French Connection’s website.

Katherine Jenkins Wears Designer & High Street Brands To Promote Her New Album “Believe”

Katherine Jenkins continues to promote her new album “Believe”.

During her promotion she dazzled in designer dresses, but also made high-street looks we can all afford look amazing.

After she was helicoptered into Swansea, the singer changed out of her Oscar de la Renta dress into a strapless sassy D&G dress to sign her CD for waiting fans.

The floral print dress was less structured on Katherine, as she opted out of the runway belt and paired her dress with tights and Trib Two’s.

The next day she headed to London Westfield shopping centre to greet fans at HMV.

Here she looked beautiful wearing a black Matthew Williamson jewel detailed dress from the Fall 2009 collection without the runway necklace, which I had assumed was part of the dress.

YLS sandals completed the look.

At HMViIn Manchester Katherine opted for a cute strapless black and white printed French Connection Danask sweetheart dress worn with Trib Two’s.

Attending the “Samsung Pink Ribbon Breast Awareness Day” in London, Katherine glowed in a bright pink French Connection Otto frill dress again worn with Trib Two’s.

My favourite looks here are the Matthew Williamson dress, and the pink French Connection dress. Regular readers will guess why.

27.10.09 In Her Closet

3 Days In Katherine Jenkins’ Closet

Katherine Jenkins has had a very busy few days.

On Saturday she donned a rubber dress to perform at G-A-Y at the Heaven Nightclub in London.

With her hair swept to one side she was decorated with hundreds of Swarovski crystals on her shoulder and hair.

On Sunday she sang the national anthem at London’s Wembley Stadium for the NFL match between the New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

She ditched the rubber and this time opted for a more sophisticated look wearing an Alexander McQueen feather print gown.

On Monday the singer arrived in style to promote her new album in Swansea via by helicopter.

She was glowing wearing a white Oscar de la Renta Spring 2009 silk chiffon pleated dress with embroidered details, which she paired with YSL heels.

Katherine really is every woman going from vamp, to sophisticated to a chic lady who lunches.

I was surprised to see her wearing the rubber dress, but it just goes to show she willing to dress for the occasion.

Her Alexander McQueen red & black feather-print gown is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter.com.

Social Events Of The Week

Curtis School Summer Fair, LA

Isn’t it too hot to be wearing head-to-toe leather in LA?

Not for Victoria Beckham it seems.

The mother of 3 was spotted out in LA wearing a Balmain Spring 2009 leather jacket, with Dsquared² Fall 2009 leather pants.

“Dare” Screening, East Hampton

Emmy Rossum is giving us so much variety on the red carpet lately, that it’s hard not to be impressed.

The brunette beauty looked gorgeous on the red carpet wearing a teal Lela Rose Spring 2009 fitted dress, with a ruffled detail on the shoulder.

Her look was paired with gold accessories including Christian Louboutin Fortuna platform sandals and a gold clutch.

The Art Of Elysium’s GENESIS Event, LA

Sophia Bush should really be the campaign girl for Max Azria as she is – along with Amanda Bynes – so loyal to the brand.

Just last week she wore a BCBG Max Azria gown, this weekend she wore a Max Azria lace mini dress and for this event she wore a black and white Herve Leger bandage dress from the Resort 2010 collection.

Burgundy suede Trib Two’s complete this stunning look.

19th Annual ‘Divas Simply Singing!’ AIDS Benefit Concert, LA


Actress Sheryl Lee Ralph paired purple strappy sandals with her purple Tadashi Shoji Fall 2009 satin draped dress.

The colour is exquisite.

Women Of The Year Lunch, London


I love Katherine Jenkins’ French Connection sequined dress.

It’s cute, young and fun plus it has shoulder pads, but the hair really lets her down.

It looks like she had an electric shock.

Like almost everyone else on this post she wore Trib Two’s.

10th Anniversary of Estee Lauder Raising Funds for Breast Cancer, New York


Last year Elizabeth Hurley seemed to have her sensitivity chip missing when she arrived at the Global Illumination Initiative to raise awareness for breast cancer in London wearing a breast enhancing Giambattista Valli dress.

For this Breast Cancer event she was dressed demurely wearing a pink sequined fitted Naeem Khan dress paired with nude heels.

The Surfrider Foundation’s 25th Anniversary Gala, LA


Audrina Patridge is the 4th person on this post to pair their look with YSL Trib Two’s proving that when it comes to walking the red carpet, these YSL Trib Two’s are still as popular as they were 2 seasons ago.

This is due to the fact that they are so comfortable to walk in.

The “actress” wore a sexy silver Obakki Spring 2010 strapless ruche bodice dress and carried a matching clutch.

2009 Pride Of Britain Awards

Putting away her sexy corset dresses for the night, Kelly Brook wore a black Louis Vuitton Fall 2008 dress which had a peplum at the waist, and a panel of embellishments on the front of her dress.

Her dress was paired with Christian Dior Glam booties.

You may remember that Satsuki Mitchell wore this same dress to the “Defiance” London Premiere back in January this year.

I have several problems with Katherine Jenkins and her Jil Sander sculpted dress.

Firstly she would have looked amazing in the orange dress. So many people wore black on this red carpet, so she would have really stood out in orange.

The most important structured drape on one side of the dress looks really limp, therefore ruining the whole effect of the dress.

Lastly she folded the detail on the shoulder when it should have stood up like on the runway.

This is such a great dress, but she didn’t do it any justice. She might as well have just worn a pencil dress for all the love she is giving to this architectural masterpiece.

Katherine’s look was paired with YSL heels and a black clutch.

I would have been totally in love with Louise Redknapp in her Peter Pilotto digital print dress, had she not worn those ankle boots.

She’s not a particularly tall lady and those boots make her legs look really short.

Dannii Minougue is stunning as always wearing a leopard print strapless Lisa Ho Spring 2009 gown.

The Aussie continues to support designers from her home country both on the red carpet and on the X Factor.

Dannii co-X Factor judge Cheryl Cole also hit the red carpet.

I love the her hot-off-the-runway (2 days to be exact) one-shouldered Chapurin Spring 2010 LBD with the sheer corseted panel on the waist, but it still lacks the wow factor I usually get from Cheryl.

Maybe my expectations are too high, as her everyday style is so impeccable.

Kimberly Walsh of Girls Aloud to walk the red carpet at this event and she wore a cute asymmetrical LBD, with a large rosette detail on the shoulder.

This dress was not a runway dress, but I remember it from the Temperley London Fall 2009 presentation I attended in February were I took a picture of Kimberley exact dress.

Nicola Roberts attended the Vivienne Westwood Spring 2010 show this weekend in Paris.

Bizarrely she wore a Vivienne Westwood Gold Label Lily wedding gown, which is the shorter version of Carrie Bradshaw’s wedding gown.

Her pretty wedding dress was given an edgy as she carried a Alexander McQueen skull knuckle duster whipsnake clutch, and Christian Louboutin Candy Stud Pumps.

Alexandra Burke needs to fire both her make-up artist and her stylist, because on this evidence neither are doing her any justice.

Yes her gown is white, but that doesn’t mean she needs to colour co-ordinate her eye shadow.

Black pumps with a white gown?  Really?

REALLY?

I applaud Myleene Klass for wearing such a risqué dress on a cold and rainy night, but this LBD screams I want to be on the front page in the morning.

Her feathered clutch is adorable though.

Mr & Mrs Kay aka Tess Daly and Vernon Kay walked the red carpet together still looking every much the loved up couple.

He wore a midnight blue suit, whilst she looked gorgeous in a nude shimmering fitted dress with a ruffled bib.

Do shoes come in a colour other than black these days?  I wonder because they seem to be paired with everything on the red carpet.

Socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson looked very happy to be at this event.

The socialite paired a Azzedine Alaia dress with hot red Charlotte Olympia shoes.

Michelle Keegan kept warm from the damp weather by wearing her cute pink Lipsy London heart layer dress which has a bejewelled waistband, with a black blazer.

Abbey Clancy continues to prove that she doesn’t own a dress that doesn’t expose her underwear.

I’m loving that new hair cut on Kara Tointon.  It’s much more sophisticated that the chavy look she had on Eastenders.

The actress thankfully went against the LBD theme and wore a silver sequined fan print dress.  With black pumps of course.

Newlyweds Gary Linekar and Danielle Bux walked the red carpet together.

He looked dapper in a navy suit, whilst she look very sexy in a strapless Dolce & Gabbana dress paired with black sash around her waist.

Although Emma Bunton went with the LBD trend, she did add a gold sequined cape to make her look more interesting.

Lisa Snowdon might as well have worn a LBD as her nude Whistles Abstract sequin dress and those thick tights are not doing her any favours.

What happened to the red carpet sex kitten?
