London Fashion Week Front Row

Fashion Fringe & Christopher Kane

Regular readers will know that I’m constantly fascinated with how Donatella Versace takes one piece from the runway and creates a totally different look unique to her.

On her visit to London she created a black sleek pencil dress from a one-shoulder top she had presented on the Fall 2009 runway.

Should would’ve look fantastic in either look which is so great about her.

Her heels are from the Versus collection.

Matthew Williamson

Olivia Palmero a self confessed Topshop addict, wore a Matthew Williamson Zig-Zag dress with navy ankle booties.

She’s not quite sporting the ‘Palmero’, but a neat ponytail.

Marios Schwab

Anna Wintour hasn’t been to London Fashion Week in a very long while and her presence is a BIG deal.

She attended the shows of  London hippest designers Marios Schwab and Christopher Kane wearing a reptile – no doubt Prada – coat and a smile sans sunglasses, which is strange because it’s actually sunny in London.

Leigh Lezark wore a crystal print Marios Schwab mini dress which I think looks better with the runway sash tied to the waist.

Ashish

Michelle Williams was very much the ‘Sophia Bush’ of London Fashion Week, as she was everywhere.

She also pulled an ‘Anna Wintour’ by not wearing anything from the designers who’s shows she attended.

At the Ashish show she wore a cute coral tiered Jenny Packham dress and sunshine yellow peep-toes.

I love that jeweled detail on the neckline.

Bora Aksu

Michelle must have like the Ashish show so much that she then wore one of his pieces to the Bora Aksu show.

The black sequin tunic dress was covered names of places I’m sure she’s traveled to with Destiny’s Child.

I love the quirky shoes she paired with this dress.

Topshop Unique

Kate Moss looks more like she’s on vacation rather than sitting front row, but Kate being Kate can wear a trash bag and still work it in the front row.

PPQ

Sporting shearling jacket when it’s quite warm in London, Alexa Chung give us that ‘so hip it hurts’ look as she waited for the PPQ show.

She wore a LBD with a lace panel, booties and a Miu Miu cross body bag.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label

Joss Stone opts for a classic Westwood tartan ensemble with some questionable open-toe Westwood booties.

Michelle Williams arrived wearing a LBD with an asymmetrical hemline plus a bright fuschia dupioni blazer.

Sexy Christian Louboutin Calypso heels.

Nicola Roberts opted for a red shimmering dress with ankle strapped heels.

Nicola arrived with Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding who made a huge statement with her PVC mini dress and Giuseppe Zanotti sculpted platform ankle boots with a bright red platform.

Luella

Every time I saw Peaches Geldof in New York she looked like a moody sulking teenager, even at the Marchesa show.

So I’m glad for two things: she smiling and she looks adorable wearing a Luella Spring 2009 lilac one-shouldered dress.

It’s not often I really like what she wears, but this a great look for her…sans tights.

‘Burberry Day’

Yesterday was deemed Burberry Day, and many stars came out to celebrate.

Alexa Chung and Hilary Rhoda provided the nights entertainment, by both showing up in the same baby blue lace dress, which they both wore with a belt.

Ouch. That’s gotta be embarrassing, especially for Chung, who’s trying to make a name for herself in the US.

Hilary wore Manolo Blahnik Pepe sandals with her dress, whilst Alexa wore a blazer from the Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2009 collection, to try to cover her shame, with platform boots from the Burberry Fall 2009 collection.

Blake Lively wore a Burberry Prorsum Spring 2009 boyfriend jacket, which reached the hem of her mini skirt.

You’ll be happy to see that the twins aren’t on full display on this occasion.

This is a cute, non-fussy laid back look for Blake.  I really like it.

When you are the House model, you can have a dress made especially for you, and that’s exactly what happen for Lily Donaldson.

The presented white chiffon Burberry Prorsum Fall 2009 knee-length dress, was considerably shorten for Lily, to show off her long legs, and suit her sassy style.

Like Alexa, she wore the Burberry Fall 2009 black suede booties.

Leigh Lezark looked stunning teaming a pleated eggplant Burberry Prorsum Fall 2008 dress, with a grey clutch, black pointy heels, and a smouldering stare.

Claire Danes oozed glamorous chic, wearing a draped dove grey Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2009 bubble hem dress, accented with a wide black belt, and T-bar Burberry sandals.

The original runway dress was worn on the red carpet by Agyness Deyn, and made several appearances in fashion magazines across the world, after it’s Spring 2009 presentation, but it’s now been archived.

Molly Sims wore a Burberry Prorsum chocolate brown dress, with the same feather embellishments, which accentuated her blonde hair and tanned skin.

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld flouted the unwritten rule by wearing an Alexander Wang white jersey dress, we have seen 3 times before.

To say I’m over this dress is putting it mildly, and I don’t need to tell you what I think about the heels.

Even though Rose McGowan looked quite out of place at this event, she does pull off her oversized cream suit with great style. Giving us 80s retro chic.

Alexis Colby would be proud.

Who Wore Christian Dior Better? Emma Roberts, Leigh Lezark or Tinsley Mortimer


Actress Emma Roberts was surprisingly the first to wear this strapless floaty Christian Dior Spring 2009 dress in lemon, when she arrived at the 2009 Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

The young actress wore her dress with black pumps, whilst carrying a Lady Dior ‘Cannage’ bag.

Leigh Lezark – for some reason I will never understand – wore her fuchsia dress at the Christian Dior Fall 2009 show, during Paris Fashion Week with tights.

Carrying her own self designed clutch, Socialite Tinsley Mortimer walked the red carpet at the 2009 American Museum of Natural History’s Museum dance in New York, wearing the same fuchsia colour a Leigh.

I adore the fuchsia pink. Tinsley really glows in this dress, plus I like the pop of yellow, so she wins for me.

Who Wore Chanel Better? Salma Blair or Leigh Lezark


Selma Blair attended a book signing for Dark Glamour wearing a slinky black Chanel Resort 2009 lace dress, which you all loved on her so much, you voted her Best Dressed Of The Week.

The belted dress had a nude underlay, and poufy details on the shoulders and hem.

The actress teamed her look with a cocoon shaped Chanel Fall 2008 clutch, and black patent YSL Trib Two Mary Janes, with a gold sole.

Leigh Lezark wore the same dress last month attending The American Museum Of Natural History’s Museum Dance, without the belt.

She accessorized with a box-shaped Chanel purse, and black peep-toes.

Selma look is so chic. I prefer her look with the belt, which gives her an amazing silhouette, plus she accessorized better.

2009 American Museum Of Natural History’s Museum Dance


A gorgeous Jessica Alba stepped out on the red carpet last night, looking divine wearing a burnt-orange and black sequined one-shouldered Narciso Rodriguez Resort 2009 dress.

I adore the orange against her skin.

Although I’m not a fan of tights on the red carpet, it works with the colour-blocking on her dress.

Jessica added a lot of pizazz to her look with sparkling statement chandelier earrings, and a dazzling embellished Roger Vivier clutch.


Dani Stahl’s black Versace Spring 2009 strapless mini dress had multiple zip details, and a ruffled hemline.

The NYLON Style Director’s look was complete with fuchsia pink Christian Louboutin Very Galaxy platform pumps.

The gold Very Galaxy heels may be an obvious choice, but I would have preferred them to go with her black and gold look.


Now this is a look that really should have been worn without tights.

Julia Restoin Roitfeld’s aqua Balmain strapless mini dress, with criss-cross embellishments is very much muted with the tights don’t you think?


Leigh Lezark wore a stunning body-contouring black lace Chanel Resort 2009 dress, which has a nude underlay to give a sheer illusion.

The DJ/model opted to wear her dress without the patent black belt which was presented on the runway. A small box clutch, and black peep-toes complete the look.


Fuchsia pink is very much the favoured colour by Tinsley Mortimer at the moment, as this is the second time in a row, and third time within 2 months, she has worn the stand out colour.

On this occasion she wore a Christian Dior Spring 2009 mini strapless dress, with matching toe and nail polish.

Her look was complete with another one of her self designed Samantha Thavasa clutches.

The yellow and pink, goes a lot better than the previous green and pink.


Milla Jovovich looked like a sexy seductress in her rich, velvet Prada dress.

I love her elegance, the side-sweeping curls and the jewels. This is a perfect look for her.
