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.

Lily Allen For Chanel Bags Fall 2009

After what seems like years of waiting, the pictures of Lily Allen for Chanel bags Fall 2009 campaign have finally surfaced.

The new Chanel handbag line is called “Coco Cocoon” which launches in October.

It’s a collection of reversible, lightweight nylon and lambskin bags in black, ecru, navy, or beige. Turn them inside out, and you’ve got the same tote, overnight duffel, or hanging garment bag in quilted garnet—the original lining colour of the house’s classic 2.55 bag.

As much as I didn’t particular like the idea of Lily Allen being the face of Chanel, she does make these hideous bags look really cute in the ad campaign.

I like the slight reference to “Breakfast At Tiffany’s”, plus I sense a bit of Victoria Beckham too.

Lily is still very much Lily in these ads. They haven’t tried to make her someone she’s not which I was initially worried about.

The pictures below in full colour paint a very ugly picture. Sorry Uncle Karl, but me no likey.

Social Events Of The Week

Hopings Got Talent Fundraising Event, London

Lily Allen looked outstanding wearing a prom-esqe red Prada dress, teamed with taupe Fendi bow-front peep-toes, and a blue quilted Chanel bag. One of many that she owns.

Her make-up was flawless, I love the a pop red on her lips, and I adore her neat black bob.

Surprisingly well put together.

Sienna Miller tried her hand at a glam rock chick look by teaming a studded Temperley London cropped jacket, a studded vest and a studded Temperley London belt with faded black skinny jeans and studded ankle boots.

I glad Sienna has managed wear a casual look that doesn’t include a hint of boho, but she has over done things with the studded details. At this point I wouldn’t be surprised if she was wearing studded pants.

Her look was completed with a Romanek crocodile clutch.

“Public Enemies” Chicago Premiere

French actress Marion Cotillard wore a very summery lilac strapless Christian Dior dress which she paired with silver open-toe heels and a double buckle belt.

A curly opdo and a brown clutch completed this stunning look.

Sam Fine’s “The Basics of Beauty” DVD Launch Party, New York

Without a single hair out of place Iman stepped a little out of her comfort-zone of glamorous gowns and tea dresses, to wear this black shimmering Derek Lam Spring 2009 jumpsuit with harem pants.

Divine as always.

2009 Los Angeles Film Festival’s Opening Night Premiere Of “Paper Man”

Christina Ricci kept her look simple wearing a purple dress with a black elasticated waist.

White pointy pumps and a quilted Chanel bag completed the look, but Christina opted out of wearing a bra.

Grand Opening Of The New BOA Steakhouse In West Hollywood, LA

Looking fabulous is really easy for Terri Seymour as the former model has a stunning figure.

Whether she’s wearing a designer gown or this strapless floral Topshop dress, it’s almost impossible for her to have an off day.

She completed her look with YSL Trib Two slingbacks.

8th Annual Four Seasons Of Hope Gala, New York

I feels like something is missing from Estelle’s Rachel Roy Pre-Fall 2009 black jumpsuit.

She has a pop of colour via the purple pumps, but I’m still missing something.

Barnes & Noble Book Signing, New York

Lauren Conrad opts for a cute casual style for her New York book signing at Barnes & Noble.

The star wore a very similar look to her last book signing.  Her she wore a loose fitting black and white top with black shorts and black Christian Louboutin pumps.

Wavy hair, a single bracelet and a megawatt smile completed the look.
