Vogue’s Fashion Week Dinner Party

This picture of Victoria Beckham and Naomi Campbell really warmed my heart.

Two of our greatest British exports are in London to celebrate all that is good and great about fashion at Vogue’s private dinner party in London last night.

Victoria was – of course – wearing a dress from her new Spring 2010 collection.

I’m glad to see she opted for one of the cute sassy fun pieces, rather then the pencil dresses, and of course I’m thrilled that it’s a colourful piece.

The designer wore her dress with grey YSL Trib Two’s.

Naomi wore a modified, more wearable version of the Alexander McQueen Resort 2010 dress which Drew Barrymore wore recently.

The Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection will never become boring to me no matter how many pieces we see on celebs.

Natalia Vodianova stood alongside the creator of her ensemble wearing a gold embroidered jacket with a black embroidered dress which Stella McCartney wore to the Prada Congo Benefit earlier this year.

Stella opted for a sleek and sexy black coat dress paired with black heels.

I love what she’s done to her hair here, normally she has it pulled back.

Maybe this is her last chance to let her hair down before her much anticipated Spring 2010 show next month.

Agyness Deyn was also in attendance wearing a House of Holland Spring 2010 half black, half beige sleeveless leather tuxedo dress.

I know Agyness is one of fashion’s greatest chameleon, but I much prefer her as a blonde.

The supermodel wore her dress with heels from the same show.

Katie Grand posed alongside Victoria Beckham wearing a pretty pink Giles Spring 2008 strapless dress.

The dress with its voluminous skirt was decorated with laser cut floral details.

I love this dress.

Of course the Brit Pack were there.

Pixie Geldof has finally taken out those god awful extension.

Daisy Lowe wore a black two-tone dress, which is the theme of the night.

But Alexa Chung looked so so cute in her Luella Spring 2010 floral print dress with a heart-shape cut-out on the bodice.

Miley…THIS is the type of cute dress you should be wearing, but in saying that I would prefer it on Selena Gomez.

So proud to write about British fashion, everyone looked fabulous at this event. They could all be up for Best Dressed Of The Week minus Pixie and Daisy.

Prada Congo Benefit Party

Stella McCartney looks beautiful wearing a black jacquard short sleeved dress from her own Resort 2010 collection.

I love the faux leather wrap around belt as it stands out more than the runway belt, and I also love her self designed mesh sandals.

Stella does wear her hair down from time to time, but we’re most used to seeing this pulled back style.

This “just thrown” on effortless look is one of my favourite this week.

When I first saw this textured silk Lanvin Spring 2009 one-shouldered dress on the runway, I knew it would need someone on the red carpet to bring it to life and I was right.

Princess Rosario Nadal of Bulgaria does just that as the dress hangs better on her.

On the runway it seems to sit too high on the model waist.

I love her choice of an ivory clutch and pewter strappy sandals.

Absolutely stunning.

Natalia Vodianova and Valentino are still inseparable. The designer and his one-time muse arrived at this event arm in arm which is good to see.

The barefaced model wore a black ensemble including a satin skirt and jersey top, under a champagne coloured Prada crushed silk coat.

Anouck Lepere is another stunning model who doesn’t need make-up to look beautiful.

She glowed wearing a red crepe sleeved dress with gathered details on the shouldered and at the waist.

Her dress is stunning but her red and black t-bar heels are drool worthy as they have a red and black satin bow on the heel.

Gold armlets and a black bag complete this look.

Model Liberty Ross showed off her toned legs wearing a sexy black Alexander McQueen stretch lace bandage dress which she toughen up with a pair of Alexander McQueen open-toe boots with the fold-over panels up.

A Pauric Sweeney envelope clutch completes this sexy look with a bit of a edge.

Eurovision Song Contest Moscow 2009 Press Conference & Semi Finals


For one night only Dita von Teese will be German.

The Eurovision Song Contest is this Saturday, and Dita has teaming up with the German entrant, therefore guaranteeing a HUGE audience for the show, and almost guaranteeing a win for the German’s.

The sexy burlesque star will appear on stage alongside Alex Christensen and Oscar Loya to play the part of Miss Kiss Kiss Bang in their performance.

She’ll be wearing a teeny tiny waist reducing corset, with decorative silver nipple covers, and an Elie Saab sequined jacket, but at today’s press conference for the show, the star was fully clothed.

She was wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2009 Couture skirt suit, consisting of a black pencil skirt, and an off-the-shoulder lace jacket, with a white detail though-out, which gives the jacket it’s structure.

Louboutin’s heels and black bag complete the look.

Liebe Dita, Liebe.

Russian model Natalia Vodianova, hosted of the semi-finals of the Eurovision Song Contest, as the show takes place in her native country.

She was papped looking heavenly wearing a lilac Givenchy Spring 2009 Couture gown.

The gown has a feathered neckline, which is also adorned with chains.

I haven’t watch the Eurovision in about 10 years, but these two woman will tempt me to watch for the fashion alone.

Fashion Fringe 2009 Launch Party

We all know that Donatella Versace never wears a runway dress, instead she modifies pieces and totally makes them unique to her.

In this case her white asymmetrical dress is a asymmetrical gown and a white strapless dress, which were both presented during her Spring 2009 collection, merged into one dress.

Model Jacquetta Wheeler wore a simple black tank top and gold buckled belt, with her Luella Spring 2009 skirt.

The gorgeous purple skirt with a gold pattern is with pleated frills, to give a whimsical feel to her overall look.

Natalia Vodianova could have really done without the leggings with her taupe coloured Versace Spring 2009 mini dress.

Like Katie Holmes’ recent Jason Wu look, the leggings totally ruin this for me.

I have done a post on The Never Changing Hairstyle Of Amanda Bynes, and many of you have expressed a need to do a similar post for Claudia Schiffer.

Yes her hair is glossy and gorgeous, but it never changes. Even in her latest Salvatore Ferragamo ad campaign, her hairstyle remains the same.

The model posed wearing a black pant suit, and a polka dotted blouse. Her nude accessories really stood out from her dark look.

I must say I am very surprised that both Natalia and Claudia weren’t at the Valentino New York premiere, they usually follow him everywhere.
