Red Carpet Fashion Awards


If you were following me on twitter, you would have known that I attended the Matthew Williamson for H&M Pre-Launch event this evening.

The event started at 1830, but I got there around 1845, and was so crestfallen when I saw that the queue was going around the block. This meant I could kiss those pieces from my wish list goodbye.

The best thing about standing in the queue was seeing Matthew Williamson, who was happy to smile for the picture above, as he walked the length of the queue to see how many fashion hungry women were keen to get their hands on his collection.


Although I didn’t get the studded belt that I wanted, nor the Ginnifer Goodwin’s sequined dress, I did get the 5 pieces above.

My favourite piece was the fuchsia pink peacock embellished cardigan, which I originally wanted in blue, but I just adore it in pink.

For those of you who wanted to know prices:
£29.99/€39.90 for the cowl neck peacock top,
£49.99/€79.90 for the cardigan,
£34.99/€49.90 for the sleeveless embroidered top,
£39.99/€59.90 for the jacquard skirt and;
£14.99/€22.90 for the peacock pendent.


One of Matthew Williamson’s darlings, Sienna Miller was there.

She was not wearing the H&M line, but a multi-coloured dress from his Fall 2009 collection, which she looked amazing in.

Love the dress, and how fresh she looks, but I’m not crazy about the shoes at all.


If Sienna is Queen darling, then Mischa Barton is Princess darling.

She arrived wearing the same navy blue jacquard Matthew Williamson for H&M skirt I had purchased, with a cropped white tee, and Matthew Williamson for H&M leather waistcoat.

I love how the whole look is pulled together with those amazing Alexander McQueen studded platform peep-toe booties.

I still want that sequined dress, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will be there tomorrow.


UPDATE: I went back early this morning and got the sequined dress.

I ? it. It looks so cute in my wardrobe, and I can’t wait to wear it.

Mischa Barton was one of the many stars that attended Matthew Williamson boutique opening party in New York during Fashion Week.

It wasn’t a surprise to see the sometime actress, sometime model, sometime designer, at this event, as she has long been faithful to Matthew Williamson, and often seen in his clothes.

For his special night she opted for a Mosaic sequined dress.

This bedazzling mosaic sequin sheath dress will make you a modern day flapper girl, if you pair it with a metallic t-bar heels, and long beads. You can buy it from Net-A-Porter’s international site £1,463/€1,875.

Shenae Grimes arrived at the InStyle/Warner Bros. Golden Globes after party, wearing a taupe, jewel embellished, fringed Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 dress.

The 90210 actress sported a half-up half-down hair do, and completed her look with matching strappy heels.

Mischa Barton wore the same fringed dress, when she attended The P&G Beauty and Grooming Awards, with a two-tone lace up booties, and metallic silver Sergio Rossi clutch for an added touch of glam.

Mischa wins for me, as I love her accessories, and I really don’t favour Shenae’s hair do.

“Streak” Screening, Miami

We had fabulous weather this weekend, and again today in London. Demi Moore’s dress keeps that Spring-time feeling going wearing a fabulous bright yellow sleeveless dress.

She’s still a fresh faced and gorgeous as ever.

“Broken Embraces” Madrid Photocall

Penelope Cruz in wore a tomato red Versace Pre-Fall 2009 long sleeved dress, that is passable for a photocall, what I loved were her Christian Louboutin heels.

What’s the big deal? It’s the detail on the heels. The gold plated heel is carved with an interesting design.

Burberry And GQ Celebrate Burberry The Beat For Men, LA

Liv Tyler wears a sheer dress/camisole under a camel cardigan of almost the same length.

Wearing a feathered headband, Mischa Barton opts for a tame rocker look.

Her black leather pants, and Temperley London leather jacket, is contrasted by wearing a very feminine silk ivory and black Temperley London Spring 2009 blouse.

Her black and white heels are by Charlotte Olympia.

Russell Simmons Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation Art For Life, Miami

Kim Kardashian continues to shrub up nicely wearing a beautiful petrol blue strapless Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 gown.

Debut Of The Witches Fall 2009 Collection

When I first saw Mischa Barton in this dress with the strappy back detail, it instantly reminded me of the black Narciso Rodriguez dress Charlize Theron wore on Letterman last year.

Unfortunately, this look is ruined by the tights and shoes. Why dare to go nearly backless, if you aren’t going to show off your legs?

Launch Of Carrera Vintage Sunglasses

Taylor Momsen continues to baffle me. Her look doesn’t suit her at all. She needs to have serious words with her stylist, because this wannabee Debbie Harry look is comical.

I missed the days when teen stars were wholesome and looked their age.

Mischa Barton walked the red carpet at The P&G Beauty and Grooming Awards held at the Freemasons Hall in London over the weekend.

The sometimes actress and handbag designer opted for a flapper style look, wearing a taupe and white ombre fringed dress from the Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 collection.

Her look was complete with two-tone lace up peep-toe booties and a Sergio Rossi clutch, which worked perfectly with her dress.

Recently Mischa announced on her blog, that she had broken up with her boyfriend Luke Pritchard from the Kooks. I would suggest she gets over her broken heart with some retail therapy.

International party girl, Mischa Barton was one of the many celebrities invited to attend the landmark Grand Opening of Atlantis, The Palm Resort, in Dubai last year.

She arrived on the red carpet with designer Matthew Williamson, wearing a one-shouldered gown from his Fall 2008 collection.

The silk lame gown was stunning, with a floral print, which Mischa wore with a few gold accessories.

TV personality Cat Deeley made a cardinal sin, by wearing a re-run to the 2009 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. There is one thing you and I hate, and that’s re-run on big occasions. There should be no excuse.

But in saying that Cat does wear it better, because her hair is all pulled back, therefore you get to see the ruffled detail on her shoulder, which Mischa covers with her hair.


I still don’t get why this was presented with a coat on the runway.
