Runway To Sidewalk – Lily Allen In Marc Jacobs

Lily Allen looked like a modern day ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ wearing Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 florescent pink coat.

She was spotted wearing this coat as she left Cindy Crawford’s Omega Constellation 2009 party at the Almeida club in London last week.

Her florscent pink hooded coat ensured she got the attention of the paperazzi, unlike some stars who like to hid behind sunglasses at night.

She teamed her coat with Chanel bag, as one would expect.

I don’t about you guys, but I ADORE her in this coat.

Behind The Scenes On Lily Allen’s Chanel Coco Cocoon Campaign

In this picture of Lily Allen it would be easy to assume that the singer was shooting the Chanel Resort 2010 campaign, as she’s wearing a red jacket from that collection.

She is actually being shot by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel’s Coco Cocoon campaign.

In the behind the scenes video from the Coco Cocoon campaign, the singer poses with ‘just got out of bed’ hair and a sexy red pout.

These images are in stark contrast to the lady-like images we have already seen from the black and white campaign.

2009 GQ Men Of The Year Awards

Sporting longer locks which were swept to the side, Lily Allen was named “Woman of the Year” and the “2009 GQ Men Of The Year Awards” in London last night.

The face of Chanel “Coco Cocoon” bag collection walked the red carpet wearing a black sheer double strapped Chanel Resort 2010 gown.

Had Lily wondered what that extra piece of material was for on the front of her gown, she’ll wonder no more when she sees her picture in the papers this morning.

Many of you are horrified that Lily is the face of Chanel, and when she ruins a perfectly wonderful gown like this I have to agree.

Freida Pinto makes a vast improvement from her last outing, which lets face it wouldn’t have been too difficult.

I love that she took a risk with this Christopher Kane black layered dress, but the hair is a bit too prim and proper for such an edgy look.

The actress pairs her dress with Rupert Sanderson Khyber cutout sandals.

I would’ve much rather seen Freida wear something more colourful, but I think she just pulls this off.

Louise Redknapp also opted for a shortened Christopher Kane Fall 2009 asymmetrical dress.

Her mesh dress with black velvet trims was paired with YSL Trib Two heels and Bottega Veneta clutch.

Katherine Jenkins appears to love the Victoria Beckham dress collection as much as the designer herself, as this is the 2nd VB dress we’ve seen her wear.

This time she opted for violet Giral strapless shot silk dress.

I’m guessing Katherine likes this collection so much because the dresses caters for those with a larger bust.

When I tried on a strapless dress from Victoria’s Spring 2009 collection I could barely fill the bodice.

The only way I recognised that Gemma Arterton was wearing Louis Vuitton was by her clutch and heels.

For some reason the LV pizazz is lost on Gemma, and this ruffle collared jacket suddenly becomes quite ordinary.

I just feel like raising the collar, its not meant to be so flat.

Victoria Hesketh aka Little Boots was one of my favourites at this event wearing a Josh Goot multi coloured printed ruched mini dress.

The surprising feature is that the back of the dress and sleeves are plain black.

The singer completes her look with an Alexander McQueen knuckle duster clutch.

Pixie Lott opted for a bedazzling Collette Dinnigan Spring 2009 mini dress coved in diamanté embellishments.

Ankle boots and studded cuffs complete the look.

We first saw this dress worn by Taylor Swift.

Much like Leighton Meester’s MTV Movie Awards Emilio De La Morena dress, Alexandra Burke’s black and white mesh Emilio Pucci dress is quite cheeky.

I’m really scared to see what this dress looked like from the back.

A turtleneck? In yesterday’s soaring heat?

I feel hot just looking at Kelly Osbourne wearing this Jasmine di Milo’s Fall 2009 dress.

Dita von Teese will be full of admiration for Kelly Brook’s waist reducing dress.

The pink rubber printed Atsuko Kudo Couture dress appears to have a built in corset to give Kelly an hour glass shape.

I bet she gave off a sexy wiggle when she walked in this dress.

Even though Eva Mendes was the “big star” at this event I was more impressed by people like Little Boots and Kelly Brook for giving us something new.

Eva wore a stunning maroon shimmering gown.

The colour was sublime on her, but the wow factor was missing. Eva can do this kind of look in her sleep.

Daisy Lowe opted for a space-aged look, which she paired down with black pumps.

Rachel Stevens hair and make-up is quite outstanding. I love the transformation maybe the newlywed decided to spice up her image.

Her LND with a voluminous skirt is oh so cute.

Tamara Ecclestone wore a striking Preen black and white lightening-print bandage-style dress paired with black ankle boots and a matching clutch.

Elizabeth Hurley’s strapless but dress is cute enough, but why I’m I so bored?

Social Events Of The Week

Form Launch Party, London

In the absence of Alexa Chung, Daisy Lowe is London’s current IT girl.

The model worked an interesting Ostwald Helgason Spring 2009 gypsy print vest, with a navy button down jumpsuit.

The cropped multi-coloured gypsy print vest has square structured shoulders, a contrasting black and white striped fabric on the lapels and an all-over vivid multi-coloured pattern.

Petra Eccleston opted for the same Peter Pilotto Fall 2009 dress as worn by Amanda Seyfried at this years Glamour UK Woman of the Year Awards.

The navy and red intricate digital print silk mini dress is gorgeous, and is one of my favourite dresses to hit the red carpet this year.

The dress has asymmetrical panels which are cleverly folded to provide a tulip shape and draping in the skirt section and cap sleeves.

The sparkle comes from the heavily embellished multi-coloured beads around the neckline.

Lily Allen kept her look simple with a grey sweater and jeans, but her a statement necklace and long gloves provide interesting/quirky touches.

New Escada Fragrance “Desire Me”, Madrid

Olivia Wilde wore an Escada Pre-Fall 2009 dress to the unveiling of the Escada fragrance, “Desire Me” in Madrid.

She wore a stunning grey short sleeve silk dress with asymmetrical draping paired with black Jimmy Choo heels.

The actress also stars in the ad campaign for the new fragrance.

Kylie Minogue Launches Exclusive Bed Linen Range, Hertfordshire

Kylie Minogue poses outside The Ivory Room at the Grove Lodge in Hertfordshire as she arrived to launch her new range of Luxurious Bed Linen.

A clothing line, or a fragrance line I get for a celeb I get, but bed linen?!?!

Anyway she looked stunning wearing an ombre strapless sparkling mini dress, which showed off her toned legs and silver strappy sandals.

Liberty & Hermes Launch Party, London

I think this what happens when a star is without her US based stylist.

Freida Pinto arrived at the Liberty & Hermes Launch Party with her boyfriend Dev Patel looking less than the glamorous star I’ve come to expect from her.

Granted it’s a low key event, but her choice of wearing a black & white leopard-print Maje with black faded jeans *shudders* and ankle boots is just a bit boring for me.

Black tapered pants and cute Jimmy Choo strappy sandals would’ve made this look much more interesting.

Lily Allen For Elle UK October 2009

Lily Allen graces the cover of Elle UK’s October 2009 issue, which has been dubbed “The London Issue”.

With the “London” theme in mind Lily was dressed in amazing clothes all by British designers including Louise Goldin, Giles, Preen and Burberry. All of which had been specifically made for her.

In Rankin’s shoot she wears both a black and blonde wig. The hairstylist on the shoot said that they were going for a Debbie Harry kinda vibe, but I see Courtney Love.

On being famous: “I get quite shy and embarrassed, actually. Yes, I think I am [shy], actually. I get embarrassed when people come up and ask for autographs. I think people expect you to have a certain sense of decorum, but I almost find it like being a nursery teacher, having to be nice to people all the time. I haven’t got a problem with that, but I think people expect you to know how to deal with s**t.
