An Evening To Celebrate The Global Fund

An Evening To Celebrate The Global Fund

Many other fashionistas joined the Beckhams at Apsley House in London yesterday evening for the celebration of the Global Fund’s first Green Carpet Challenge.

Jemma Kidd: The makeup artist/fashion model wore an Antonio Berardi Resort 2014 blue-black-and-white geometric-print dress styled with Roger Vivier pumps and a black clutch. For me there is a huge disconnect between the dress and the shoes. A sexy pair of Manolos or edgy footwear by Casadei or Kirkwood would’ve been more complementary.

Sienna Miller: After taking her front-row seat as brand ambassador at the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 show, the actress wore a Dolce & Gabbana dress featuring the brand’s hallmarks: floral and lace. Having seen this dress in various guises on the red carpet before, it’s a little hard to get that excited about it, especially when she styled it with flats.

Jodi Kidd: Joining her sister at the event, the former race car driver who has recently returned to modelling wore an Preen navy-and-neon-yellow floral dress styled with sexy lace Jimmy Choos, bracelets and a black clutch. Thankfully, her shoe game is better than her sister’s. You may remember that fellow model Helena Christensen wore the same dress earlier this year.

Front Row @ Erdem Spring 2014

Front Row @ Erdem

London’s It girls took to the front row of Erdem’s Spring 2014 collection to see what lace-accented floral delights the designer had in store for us this time, with one PYT sticking out like a sore thumb.

Alexa Chung: The DJ didn’t appear to get the floral or lace memo, opting for a cosy Topshop knit sweater (which I have in pink) styled with a leather mini skirt, ankle boots and a Burberry Fall 2013 clutch. While she might not have towed the line with the dress code, the look is very much in tune with her style.

Poppy Delevingne: The socialite donned funky crystal-accented DSquared2 shades while wearing a pretty white frock with colourful floral appliqués from Erdem’s Resort 2014 collection which she styled with black pumps. While the footwear wouldn’t have been my first choice, they coordinate well with the black trims on her dress.

Pixie Geldof: I saw the socialite several times yesterday. While she changed her dress for each show – here she’s wearing an Erdem Pre-Fall 2013 floral frock – she did not part with her trusted Dolce & Gabbana animal-print clutch, or her burgundy booties showcased during Christopher Kane’s Fall 2013 collection.

Daisy Lowe: The model channeled her inner Courtney Love, styling her pretty white lace Erdem Resort 2014 frock with workman-like lace-up boots, with black Prada Heritage cat eye sunglasses and a Miu Miu ‘Bowling’ bag completing her look.

Front Row @ Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014

Burberry Front Row

Burberry Prorsum’s pretty, English rose-themed Spring 2014 collection debuted today at Kensington Gardens during London Fashion Week. There were plenty of PYTs, and even a particular One Direction boy, who crowded the front row for the cheerful runway action.

Sienna Miller: Fully embracing the fall season, the Burberry-clad actress, who appears in the label’s Fall 2013 campaign, showed us how the midriff trend might transition to colder temps.  Her fuzzy, forest-green cropped jacket was matched to the slimmer silhouette of a classic pencil skirt in a similar tonal shade. Embellished sandals and a baby-blue clutch didn’t fit in as seamlessly as I would have liked.

Naomie Harris: Sleek and effortless, the actress wore a buttery-yellow sheath dress from the Burberry Resort 2014 collection. Accessorizing with black ankle-strap sandals and a mini-clutch, along with straight locks, she proved that simple is sometimes best.

Paloma Faith: The British singer-songwriter paid homage to the Burberry label with her Fall 2013 goldenrod trench and rubberized skirt, which she paired with a mahogany pumps and studded bag. Of course, all eyes were also on her flame-red curls, which always add an exclamation point to each of her outings.

Poppy Delevingne In Emilia Wickstead – ‘Rush’ World Premiere

Poppy Delevingne In Emilia Wickstead - 'Rush' World Premiere

Poppy Delevingne attended the world premiere of ‘Rush’ held at The Odeon Leicester Square in London yesterday evening alongside Chris Hemsworth, Elsa Pataky and Olivia Wilde.

The model wore an oversized Emilia Wickstead short loose-fitted blush-and-blue checked dress with light embellishments from the Fall 2013 collection styled with blue velvet pumps and a Gucci ‘Soho Disco’ bag in light-blue.

My issue with this look is that I like her accessories more than her dress.

The dress says first trimester to me, and I have never really been much of a fan of Heidi braids, especially when they look as juvenile as they do here.

Chanel New Bond Street Private Viewing

Chanel New Bond Street 2

Chanel celebrated the revamp of their New Bond Street flagship boutique by inviting celebs to have a private viewing.

Thandie Newton: The leggy actress wore a black pearl-accented dress from Chanel’s Fall 2013 collection, which she styled with beige suede platform Louboutins and a multi-coloured Chanel Lego clutch. Diane Kruger wore a similar look last year.

Poppy Delevingne: The socialite wore a light-pink frothy tiered tulle confection from Chanel’s Resort 2013 collection, which she styled with gold pumps.

Caroline Sieber: There isn’t a Chanel party anywhere around the globe without Ms Sieber in attendance. The stylist wore a blue-and-white flirty Chanel Resort 2013 frock styled with a Chanel black satin clutch and black pumps. The styling, ironically, lets her down.

Poppy Delevingne In Dolce & Gabbana – Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball

Poppy Delevingne In Dolce & Gabbana - Tiffany & Co Blue Book Ball

The Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball was held at the Rockefeller Center in New York City yesterday evening, with most of the attendees wearing a formal gown.

I say most, because Carey Mulligan opted for a tuxedo and here we have Poppy Delevingne wearing a Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2013 look.

The socialite probably attends at least two balls a week, so I am surprised by her decision to wear this floral-print blouse with a fruity, bold multi-print A-line skirt.

You may remember that Katy Perry wore this same skirt to Coachella last week, which further proves that maybe this look wasn’t quite right for the occasion. Do you agree?

Event appropriateness aside, I do love the look – both the contrasting prints and the gold sparkling footwear.
