London Fashion Week Front Row

Fashion Fringe & Christopher Kane

Regular readers will know that I’m constantly fascinated with how Donatella Versace takes one piece from the runway and creates a totally different look unique to her.

On her visit to London she created a black sleek pencil dress from a one-shoulder top she had presented on the Fall 2009 runway.

Should would’ve look fantastic in either look which is so great about her.

Her heels are from the Versus collection.

Matthew Williamson

Olivia Palmero a self confessed Topshop addict, wore a Matthew Williamson Zig-Zag dress with navy ankle booties.

She’s not quite sporting the ‘Palmero’, but a neat ponytail.

Marios Schwab

Anna Wintour hasn’t been to London Fashion Week in a very long while and her presence is a BIG deal.

She attended the shows of  London hippest designers Marios Schwab and Christopher Kane wearing a reptile – no doubt Prada – coat and a smile sans sunglasses, which is strange because it’s actually sunny in London.

Leigh Lezark wore a crystal print Marios Schwab mini dress which I think looks better with the runway sash tied to the waist.


Michelle Williams was very much the ‘Sophia Bush’ of London Fashion Week, as she was everywhere.

She also pulled an ‘Anna Wintour’ by not wearing anything from the designers who’s shows she attended.

At the Ashish show she wore a cute coral tiered Jenny Packham dress and sunshine yellow peep-toes.

I love that jeweled detail on the neckline.

Bora Aksu

Michelle must have like the Ashish show so much that she then wore one of his pieces to the Bora Aksu show.

The black sequin tunic dress was covered names of places I’m sure she’s traveled to with Destiny’s Child.

I love the quirky shoes she paired with this dress.

Topshop Unique

Kate Moss looks more like she’s on vacation rather than sitting front row, but Kate being Kate can wear a trash bag and still work it in the front row.


Sporting shearling jacket when it’s quite warm in London, Alexa Chung give us that ‘so hip it hurts’ look as she waited for the PPQ show.

She wore a LBD with a lace panel, booties and a Miu Miu cross body bag.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label

Joss Stone opts for a classic Westwood tartan ensemble with some questionable open-toe Westwood booties.

Michelle Williams arrived wearing a LBD with an asymmetrical hemline plus a bright fuschia dupioni blazer.

Sexy Christian Louboutin Calypso heels.

Nicola Roberts opted for a red shimmering dress with ankle strapped heels.

Nicola arrived with Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding who made a huge statement with her PVC mini dress and Giuseppe Zanotti sculpted platform ankle boots with a bright red platform.


Every time I saw Peaches Geldof in New York she looked like a moody sulking teenager, even at the Marchesa show.

So I’m glad for two things: she smiling and she looks adorable wearing a Luella Spring 2009 lilac one-shouldered dress.

It’s not often I really like what she wears, but this a great look for her…sans tights.

Runway To Cheryl Cole’s 26 Birthday Party – Cheryl Cole in Alexander McQueen

Last night X Factor judge and Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole celebrated her 26th birthday at Vanilla Club in London.

The birthday girl was center of attention – as she should be – wearing a ombré fringed Alexander McQueen sleeveless dress with nude embroidered mesh panel on the bodice.

This is a very different look for the star desperate to shake off her WAG image.

Despite the dress leaving very little to the imagination and evoking images of ice-skaters at the winter Olympics, I think she just manages to pull it off, with her hair pulled tightly back and the complementary nude Christian Louboutin Prive slingbacks.

For some reason I have a feeling a lot of you will hate it.

When it comes to Terri Seymour I absolutely love her vibrant blue Versace Spring 2009 one-shoulder mini dress.

She always picks pieces that show-off her assets…her legs.

Apart from the colour I love the bell-shape of the skirt, the simple silver jewels and even her grey YSL Trib Two slingbacks with complete this stunning look.

You may remember that Donatella Versace wore this same dress recently, but she modified the skirt.

Girls Aloud band-mate Nicola Roberts attended the party wearing a mint green linen Paul & Joe Resort 2009 dress with white trim ruffle sleeves and matching mint peep-toe shoes and a black satin Chanel bag.

I adore this look. One of my favourites on a very slow week.

Who Wore D&G Better? Nicola Roberts or Emma Roberts

This is the battle of the Roberts’.

Nicola vs. Emma.

Girls Aloud singer Nicole Roberts arrived at Gilgamesh in Camden, London for a fun night out with her band mates last year.

She didn’t accessorize her blood red lace strapless D&G dress, she just wore it with black pumps.

Actress Emma Roberts wore the same dress when she attended the 2009 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in Westwood, California during March.

She wore booties, and a black armlet, which are now very popular on the red carpet.

Nicole wins this for me, as I really dislike Emma’s booties. Had they been peep-toes, I might have given this to her.

02.04.09 In Her Closet

In Nicola Roberts’ Closet – Graeme Black Peach Ruched Dress

Nicola Roberts from UK girl group Girls Aloud, wore this Graeme Black short ruched mini dress, when she attended the 2008 Music Industry Trust Awards in London last year.

Nicole is not one to steal the spotlight, but she’s also not one to stand in the shade. Even if she did you would still notice this cute mini dress.

The peachy mini has contrasting cream straps, ruching on the bodice, and a bubble hemline. I like Nicole’s idea of wearing this dress with a belt, but not the chain Chanel part of the belt.

How would you wear this dress?

Find out by purchasing it from Browns Fashion for £1,475/€1,593.22/$2,109.99.
