The WGSN Global Fashion Awards

The WGSN Global Fashion Awards

The WGSN Global Fashion Awards, which recognise achievement in fashion and retail design on an international scale, took place at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London yesterday evening.

Winners on the night included Erdem Moralio?lu (Womenswear Designer), Acne (Menswear Design Team), Nicholas Kirkwood (Accessories and Footwear Designer) and Topshop (Best Multi-Channel Retailer).

Laura Whitmore: The Irish TV presenter wore a feather-festooned Nicholas Oakwell Spring 2012 Couture white-collared frock accented with a silver belt and silver pumps, opting to mix metals with a gold clutch which looked like it weighed a ton. You may remember that Tali Lennox wore this same dress back in May 2012.

Ella Catliff: ‘La Petite Anglaise’ blogger, and my seat mate for the evening, Ella wore a Nanette Lepore ‘Spaceship’ dress with a stunning vibrant floral print with leather insets. Not afraid to mix prints, she added a leopard-print clutch to her look. Loved that matte-red lip.

Amber Le Bon: The model wowed in an Ermanno Scervino white embroidered gown with a floor-sweeping train which couldn’t have been a more fitting look for the elegant model. With her hair teased into a top knot to showcase those dazzling earrings, she styled the rest of her look with a white Stark clutch with gold hardware and a dark manicure.

Laura Whitmore In Christopher Kane – Scottish Fashion Awards 2013

Laura Whitmore In Christopher Kane - Scottish Fashion Awards 2013

The 8th Annual Scottish Fashion Awards was held at Dover House in London yesterday evening, so they appropriately named it ‘Scottish Fashion Invasion of London’.

Laura Whitmore was in attendance wearing the dress made by the winner of ‘Scottish Designer of the Year’ – Christopher Kane.

She donned a frock that fashion fantasies are made of. Gothic romanticism at its finest.

The all-black dress with sheer tulle inserts and a high-necked dose of hedonistic cool is part Georgian, part glamour, culminating in a seductive climax. She styled the dress with vertiginous Kurt Geiger platform heels and a heady dose of sassy attitude.

With her blonde hair pulled back, she styled her look with a black clutch and jewels from Catherine Zoraida which included a ‘Bluebell’ ring and a ‘Seahorse’ ring.

Laura Whitmore In Zara – Macmillan De’Longhi Art Auction 2013

Laura Whitmore In Zara - Macmillan De'Longhi Art Auction 2013

Laura Whitmore attended the Macmillan De’Longhi Art Auction, raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support, at the Royal College of Art in London yesterday evening, where she DJ’d at the event.

You will be forgiven if you thought she was wearing a Louis Vuitton Fall 2013 dress.

She’s actually wearing a Zara lace-trimmed lingerie dress clearly inspired by said collection, which she styled with a leather biker jacket slung over her shoulders and a pair of lust-worthy buckled booties.

I know some of you are purists, preferring runway looks not to be diluted on the high street, but when the results look so good and the price points are so different, it’s hard to resist.

Laura Whitmore In Raoul – Marie Claire’s 25th Birthday Party

Laura Whitmore In Raoul - Marie Claire's 25th Birthday Party

Laura Whitmore was quite the social butterfly yesterday evening, attending both the 25th birthday party of Marie Claire at Hotel Cafe Royal and Harper’s Bazaar’s London Fashion Week closing party in London.

The Irish presenter known for her love of miniskirts wore a chic black crepe Raoul Fall 2013 backless gown with a satin ruffle cascading down the back.

With her hair swept up into an effortless updo, makeup-wise she opted for a copper lip colour and cat eyes, and she kept her accessories to a minimum, adding a black-and-silver clutch and gold jewels.

It’s nice to see her go glam for a change.

Laura Whitmore In Topshop – Pandora Oxford Street Store Launch Party

Laura Whitmore In Topshop - Pandora Oxford Street Store Launch Party

Laura Whitmore attended the Pandora Oxford Street store launch in London yesterday evening.

The Irish TV presenter wore a lovely fresh summery look on what was expected to be our last day of summer here.

She wore a white sheer blouse over a white bralet, with her light-pink Topshop vinyl skater skirt being the main focus of her look.

I have seen both this skirt and the pencil skirt version in Topshop and my first reaction was “who would wear that?”, but after seeing the skirt on Laura I am pleasantly surprised by how good the vinyl piece is when styled right.

The rest of her neutral look included nude ankle-strap sandals and a clutch which matched her skirt.
