Social Events Of The Week

Georgina Chapman For Garrard Launch, London

Standing quite a vision in regal blue, Georgina Chapman posed at the launch of her new jewellery collection for Garrard.

Once again we see the designer rocking her own brand, however the founder of Marchesa does make a rather impressive clothes horse for this exotic design.

A mass of sequins and beads, this short sparkly number certainly gains attention, with bordering feathers softening the tough structure. Opting for simple black platforms to complement her look, Georgina keeps the rest basic too, with natural hair and just a touch of a smouldering eye on show.

Princess Beatrice attended the event wearing a Notte by Marchesa Fall 2009 piece.

Very much in-keeping with this season’s favourite trend, Beatrice knows that anything that glitters or gleams goes, and looks fantastic covered in chunky gold sequins.

The little jacket and tights that Beatrice has chosen smarten this look, showing that even though she is a Princess, Beatrice knows grown-up glamour.

“The Box” New York Premiere

Despite this RM by Roland Mouret body-con dress fitting Cameron Diaz’s form perfectly, it’s disappointing to see the normally animated and lively actress in this more muted style.

Her personality has previously been heightened by what she has worn, however here, Cameron loses something of her kinetic celebrity persona.

By dressing down in tights and adding a tame up ‘do, it further dampens things. This dress doesn’t do her justice.

“Valentino: The Last Emperor”, New York

In keeping with recent ghoulish-festivities, Daphne Guiness stepped out a few nights ago in a dark ensemble, mixing textures and shapes creatively.

The fashion-forward mum-of-three stuck with her usual flamboyant style, combining tight leather leggings, a satin bodice and a velvet cropped jacket.

Stepping out in Nina Ricci’s lavish Fall 2009 boot, Daphne doesn’t disappoint as an example of someone unafraid to experiment with fashion, fully confident in her stride.

Socialite Lauren Remington Platt was spotted wearing this gorgeous Julien Macdonald dress recently, a garment taken from the designer’s Spring 2010 collection.

This same dress was placed on our Wish List page not long ago for starlet Cheryl Cole.

The candy-colours fused with figure-hugging fabric create a piece that is sweet and girly but with a flirtatious, sexy edge.

CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists Dinner, LA

Stunning Diane Kruger looks effortlessly chic in this asymmetric Chloe Fall 2009 jumpsuit.

Belted, to cinch her waist and showing just a peep of skin, the actress needn’t do anything else to this fabulous piece.

She kept her hair and make-up basic to achieve a flawless example of great style.

Who Wore Luella Better? Alexa Chung or Princess Beatrice

Alexa Chung pulled this Luella Fall 2007 cute floral print mini dress out of her no doubt huge closet, to wear on the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards last month.

The cute mini dress has a poufy skirt aided by a black tulle underlay.

Alexa carried a black clutch and toughen up her cutesy look with manly boots.

Beatrice may have been inspired by Alexa, as she wore the same dress a few weeks later.

On a cold October night out with her sister Princess Eugenie, she didn’t wear a coat but opted for tights to keep her warm.

Beatrice has the perfect figure of this 50s style dress, it fits her better than Alexa, plus she ran an iron over it before she left her house unlike Alexa so Princess B wins for me.

Who Wore Temperley London Better? Princess Beatrice or Aubrey O’Day

If this was a Disney movie, it would be titled “The Lady and the Tramp”.

Princess Beatrice walked the red carpet with her boyfriend, sister and mother to attend “The Young Victoria” World Premiere held at the Odeon, Leicester Square in London back in March.

She wore a Temperley London Spring 2009 cobalt silk asymmetrical dress with a draped sleeve that links into the bubble hem.

She teamed her dress with silver accessories including heels, clutch and a chain belt.

Aubrey O’Day wore the same dress to the LA premiere of “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” with silver Louboutin heels.

At the time I said this was the best I have ever seen Aubrey on the red carpet, as she wasn’t revealing anything and the dress appeared to be the right size for once.

As much as I want to give this to Princess Beatrice, I much prefer Aubrey’s heels and I’m glad she didn’t wear a belt as the jewel detail on the shoulder is enough detail for this dress, so Aubrey wins for me.

“The Young Victoria” World Premiere

Another rain soaked London evening almost ruined some of the wonderful gowns at The Young Victoria World Premiere last night.

Star of the movie Emily Blunt, looked radiant as she walked the red carpet, wearing a Vivienne Westwood strapless bustier floral print gown.

I am glad she didn’t wear a necklace, as the earrings were enough bling.

Emily was joined an elite guest list including the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, who is the producer of the movie.

She wore a rich deep purple taffeta Vivienne Westwood bustier dress, with black pumps.

I love how her dress gives her a nice lift.

British Designers seemed to be the theme of the night, as Princess Beatrice wore a sapphire toga-style Temperley London Glade dress.

The dress features, beaded appliqué detail on one-shoulder neckline, a draped detail which goes over the shoulder, and a bubbled hem.

This dress has a lot going on, but Princess Beatrice make it work.

Princess Eugenie wore an ivory Temperley London Rah satin dress. The sleeveless dress had a crochet lace panel yoke, which was a very pretty detail, whilst is also showed off a touch of cleavage.

She completed her look with Jimmy Choo Prairie sandals.

Miranda Richardson’s orange Temperley London Long Zora gown was soaked by the rain, but that did not stop her braving the cold and putting on a great smile.

The beaded halter is quite exquisite.

Runway To The Queen Mother’s Statue Unveiling – Princesses Beatrice & Eugenie


The Royal family gathered in London this week, as the Queen unveiled a memorial statue of the Queen Mother.

The royal women were of course all dresses up and looking fabulous, but it was those royal fashionista Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, who stood out the most in their designer threads.

Beatrice wore a very interesting hat with a eggplant ruffled hemmed dress, and a Luella Florence bouclé jacket.


Princess Eugenie, also wore the required hat, with a navy velvet jacket, gloves and a navy blue Marc Jacobs belted silk tulip dress.

I’m always interested to see what these young ladies wear, because they continue to surprise me with their great choices, and continue shift the view that the royal family are stuffy and out of touch.

Princess Beatrice’s Luella jacket is available to purchase from the Net-A-Porter US site for $1,360, and the International site for £565/€748.

Princess Eugenie’s Marc Jacobs dress is still available from Saks.com in red for $995.
