Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Pixie Geldof In House of Holland  - Fashion Rules Exhibition

Pixie Geldof attended the launch party for the Fashion Rules exhibition, a collection of dresses worn by HRH Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Margaret and Diana, Princess of Wales, held at Kensington Palace in London yesterday evening.

The socialite wore a look by one of her favourite designers, Henry Holland.

Opting not to wear the full House of Holland Resort 2014 look, Pixie selected just the teal leather skirt with playful starburst appliqués, which she paired with a printed blouse from the same collection.

The bralet is really sexy on the model, but it wouldn’t have been quite right for this event.

Adding a touch of glam rock to her look via her metallic-silver Mary Janes, Pixie also styled her look with an animal Dolce & Gabbana shoulder bag and a dark-berry lip colour.

Pixie really had me loving this look until I got to the lip colour. Even though her Resort pieces do have a Pre-Fall feel, the colour is still too dark and sombre for this look.

The Serpentine Gallery Summer Party

Aside from Naomi Campbell and Sarah Jessica Parker, a host of stars did wear L’Wren Scott frocks to the Serpentine Gallery Summer Party, which the designer hosted in Hyde Park, London yesterday evening.

Princess Beatrice: The princess looked chic wearing a L’Wren Scott blue lace dress with a scoop neckline, scalloped hem and interesting pleats at the cuffs. Her dazzling accessories included a blue embellished clutch and crystallized pumps.

Joanne Froggatt: The ‘Downton Abbey’ star is known for her love of colour, but on this rare occasion she selected a black L’Wren Scott frock. The embroidered mini was styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Lagoula’ sandals and a studded Christian Louboutin ‘Paris’ bag to prevent this look from being too forgettable.

Alice Eve: Now this is more like it. Alice clearly read her invite for this summer party. The actress wore a L’Wren Scott Spring 2013 white-and-gold sequin frock, styled with gold pumps and a cream oversized clutch with a gold bow accent.

Glamour Women Of The Year Awards 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the looks from the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013, held at Berkeley Square Gardens in London on Tuesday evening.

Laura Whitmore: The Irish TV presenter wore a Carven collage-newsprint dress from the designer’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection. The A-line dress has plenty of personality and I’m glad to see she has just as much fun with the styling, adding a Sophia Webster ‘Speech’ Bubble clutch and bauble-accented heels by the same designer.

Myleene Klass: The singer/TV presenter glowed wearing a Rachel Gilbert hot-pink strapless frock styled with Stephen Webster jewels. She took home the Entrepreneur of the Year award.

Joanne Froggatt: Taking home the Best TV Actress award, Joanne opted for a fall-like hue when so many others were wearing summery frocks. Her maroon Alberta Ferretti dress was styled with metallic-silver Jimmy Choo pumps and a Christian Louboutin spiked clutch.

Met Gala 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening. Models @ The Met post will follow.

Brooklyn Decker: The actress wore a custom Peter Pilotto look inspired by the Spring 2013 collection. While the look is custom I feel like I have seen this look several times before, so there is nothing fresh or new about it, unlike other custom looks as showcased by Karolina Kurkova and several others. Her Sergio Rossi ‘Hypnos’ sandals, however, are a work of art.

Alicia Keys: The singer took to the red carpet wearing a custom Jason Wu gown. Her black leather and bordeaux sequin embroidered halter gown is beautiful, but I wish Alicia had pushed the punk vibe with the styling a bit more; the red streaks in her hair aren’t enough for me, especially when we know Alicia isn’t afraid of taking a fashion risk. Robert Lee Morris jewels and a vintage clutch completed her look.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The actress wore a beautiful custom Calvin Klein scarlet gown for the occasion which was punked up as far as she would go with a studded choker and a Tod’s black studded clutch with a gold frame. While I do love this look, I wish Maggie had gone bra shopping before this event.

Topshop Fall 2013 Front Row

The Topshop Unique Fall 2013 show took place in London yesterday afternoon and they invited their favourite celebs to take in the new collection.

Kate Bosworth: Decked out head-to-toe in Topshop, the actress wore a fluffy grey Topshop Unique sweater which she styled with a darker grey sequinned Unique mini skirt. Opting to keep her look monotone, she accessorized with a black Topshop clutch and simple black pumps. Neutral makeup and a top-knot provided the finishing touches. Did this look need some colour to lift it? Or are you happy with this look as it is?

Olivia Palermo: As you would expect from Olivia, she wore a mixture of brands for her front-row look. A cosy Tibi fur jacket, worn over her layered Topshop sheer blouse and white sequinned Tibi top, was accented with a white leather belt. I love the print on the Topshop cropped pants, which livened up the look, as did her Whistles yellow python clutch. Monika Chang black ankle-strap pumps with a white heel accessorized her look. Olivia’s longer wavy tresses perfectly framed her face, with kohl-rimmed eyes, pink lips and a red manicure completing her look beauty-wise.

Pixie Geldof: The star wore a blue-and-white floral-print Topshop Boutique dress. I’m not at all surprised to see her carrying her animal-print Dolce & Gabbana clutch, because she rarely hits the red carpet without one piece of her look consisting of a Dolce piece. Masculine patent leather loafers, gold jewels and a two-tone manicure completed her look.
