Tom Ford Fall 2015 Front Row

Tom Ford Fall 2015 Front Row

While some editors and models were headed to London for round two of fashion month, Anna Wintour, Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls headed west for the Tom Ford Fall 2015 show which was showcased in LA on Friday (February 20).

The result, a packed A-List front row of which nineteen looks have been featured.

With the Oscars on Sunday and with everyone in town, it was quite a master-stroke to host the show in LA this weekend.

TOM’S FAVOURITES
Julianne Moore: The actress was no doubt top of the guest list working a Spring 2015 green ensemble festooned with feathers, sequins and camo print. I would not bet against Julianne wearing Tom Ford on Sunday despite the Givenchy run up.

Gwyneth Paltrow: I expected a bit more from Gwynie. This cold shoulder Pre-Fall 2015 LBD feels a bit been there done that and boring for such an occasion.

The Carters: He was looking mighty dapper in a signature wide lapel suit, while she was looking bootylicious in a typically sheer embellished Spring 2014 creation.

Fendi New York Flagship Boutique Inauguration Party

Fendi New York Flagship Boutique Inauguration Party

On Friday (February 13) Fendi celebrated the opening of their New York flagship store during New York Fashion Week.

Rihanna: The singer, who designed a 3Baguette and micro baguette in aid of her Clara Lionel Foundation, wore a bronze leather Fendi archive dress styled with a pink chinchilla coat and Manolo Blahnik sandals. The look would’ve worked better sans coat.

Sarah Jessica Parker: The actress opted to go sans fur wearing a Fendi Spring 2015 look that was a feast for the eyes with its many colours, fabrications and layers. The smoky eye was perhaps too heavy for my liking, but I’m too distracted by her custom 3Baguette bag and stunning sandals.

Hailee Steinfeld: My first thought was that it was refreshing to see the young star in colour, then I realised she does often embrace colour but not always as boldly as this Pre-Fall 2015 look. A part of me feels there is too much going on, but the right side of my brain loves it from head to toe.

2015 amfAR New York Gala Red Carpet Roundup

2015 amfAR New York Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of some of the other attendees at the 2015 amfAR New York Gala at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday (February 11) in New York City.

Kendall Jenner: The model wore a striking red Romona Keveza Fall 2014 sleek asymmetrical gown styled with gold glitter Christian Louboutin ‘Iriza’ pumps and working a Gigi Hadid slicked-back do. You may remember that Rachel McAdams wore this same dress last year.

Toni Garrn: I love Toni but, as beautiful as she looks here, her love for Elie Saab lace gowns is starting to get repetitive. Here she opts for white following black and green offerings in the past. This look was styled with a Rauwolf clutch and Giuseppe Zanotti Design black suede sandal with golden leaf embellishments. If I had access to Elie Saab that’s all I would wear too, but I wish she would consider some of the other dresses on offer. A printed Elie Saab dress wouldn’t go amiss.

Iman: Shutting down the red carpet, the supermodel showed the youngsters how it’s done wearing a striped colourful look from Balmain’s Spring 2015 collection. Oozing natural style of the like the aforementioned could only dream about, this was one of my favourites of the bunch.

Audi and W Magazine’s Golden Globes Parties

Audi and W Magazine's Golden Globe Parties

Audi and W Magazine hosted parties to celebrate the Golden Globes on Thursday (January 9), with celebs party-hopping between the two events held at Cecconi’s Restaurant and the Chateau Marmont respectively.

Dita Von Teese: The burlesque star was at the W Magazine party decked out in signature black, working a classic Le Smoking tuxedo dress.

Joanne Froggatt: The ‘Downton Abbey’ actress opted for a lighter summery look at the Audi party, wearing an aqua-blue raffia Ermanno Scervino Spring 2015 crop top and skirt styled with silver accessories including Stuart Weitzman sandals and a Jill Milan clutch.

Salma Hayek: At the W Magazine party the Latin actress wore head-to-toe Alexander McQueen, with her fit-and-flare frock spliced with a red pattern that mimicked the brand’s signature corset belt.

Naomi Campbell In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Empire’ LA Premiere

Naomi Campbell In Dolce & Gabbana - 'Empire' LA Premiere

Naomi Campbell attended the premiere of ‘Empire’ held at ArcLight Cinemas’ Cinerama Dome on Tuesday (January 6) in Hollywood, California.

The gorgeous supermodel wore a black Dolce & Gabbana chiffon dress accented with the brand’s signature lace-up corset from the Fall 2014 collection.

We scoffed when Alyssa Milano wore a corseted Dolce & Gabbana frock last year, and I have to say that even with her supermodel prowess the corset doesn’t work for me here either.

It doesn’t enhance the look. It feels overly fussy and a bit messy with all those laces hanging loose.

Sticking with her favoured nude lip colour and heavy lip liner, the model completed her look with Chopard jewels and wavy tresses.

Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn for Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2015

Burberry Spring_Summer 2015 Campaign - on embargo until 14 December 10pm GMT

Burberry unveiled its Spring/Summer 2015 campaign starring British icons Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn, which was shot by Mario Testino in London.

Aside from the burst of colours and the joyous mood of the campaign, which celebrates the collection’s bright book cover designs and hand-painted pieces, I’m delighted to see two generations of British supermodels gracing the campaign and looking better than ever.

Naomi Campbell re-joins the Burberry cast for the first time since her Burberry campaign back in 2001, whereas this is the fourth for Jourdan Dunn.
When I saw this campaign, it suddenly explained the recent run of Burberry dresses Naomi has been wearing on the red carpet.

Always marrying fashion and music, George Barnett, the ‘These New Puritans’ drummer who is the current face of the Burberry Brit Rhythm fragrance campaign, and George Le Page, the drummer of the band ‘Of Empires’, who opened and closed the Burberry Prorsum Menswear Spring/Summer 2015 show, featured in separate images for the campaign.

Customers can shop for the Burberry trench coat collection in stores globally and on Burberry.com from today, with the full Burberry Spring/Summer 2015 collections available globally from 5 January 2015.
