Runway To ‘Friday Night with Jonathan Ross’ – Rihanna In Alexandre Vauthier Couture

Rihanna totally redeems herself after wearing those hideous Jean Paul Gaultier dungarees recently.

Rihanna is like a fashion roller-coaster.

One minute she’s up, the next she’s down, and a some points you just want to be sick.

Here she is on the up at yesterday’s taping of ‘Friday Night with Jonathan Ross’ in London.

I absolutely LOVE this Alexandre Vauthier Couture Fall 2009 dress on Rihanna.

See RiRi you can look edgy and sophisticated at the same time without looking like a hobo.

The exquiste nude sequin gown looks as stunning on Rihanna as it does on the model.

In fact I think I like it better on Rihanna, as the dress drapes better with the thinner white belt.

Rihanna has worn these white ankle strap heels on several occasion, and now we know where she got them from as they were presented on the runway during Vauthier’s Fall 2009 Couture show.

Rihanna’s Stéphane Rolland look was one of my favourites this year, but this look trumps that one and is a worthy BDOTW contender.

This is now the second time Rihanna has worn a look from this talented designer.

Jonathan Ross is very funny, so I can’t wait to see this interview which airs tonight at 1035pm on BBC1, or you can watch the interview on BBC iPlayer tomorrow.

Who Wore Balmain Better? Rihanna or Alex Curran

We saw many look from looks from Rihanna during Paris Fashion Week back in October.

On her way to Balmain’s Spring 2010 presentation she was spotted wearing a Balmain ensemble which included a blazer, lace bustier and satin harem pants.

This ensemble looks like it was made for Rihanna, given that she channels “edgy chic” so well.

I like the way that Rihanna has worn her trousers higher and gone without a belt, which the harem pants don’t need.

WAG Alex Curran wore the same look earlier this month to the “Cricket’s Christmas Party” in Liverpool.

How does she always manage to turn everything she wears from Chic to Cheap?

The black lace just looks tacky on her.

The fake tan doesn’t do her any favours either.

Alex was quoted in the January 2010 edition of UK Vogue saying Balmain’s prices are “absolutely ridiculous”.

Funny then that this was the second Balmain look she’d worn in that same week.

For me this is a clear Rihanna victory.

Runway To BET’s 106 & Park – Rihanna In Jean Paul Gaultier

Rihanna continues to promotion her new album ‘Rated R’ with a visit to BET’s 106 & Park to perform new single ‘Hard’.

Normally I can get over the crazy looks Rihanna wears pretty quickly, but I have a feeling this horror will be etched in my memory for a long while because this has to be the worst she has ever looked.

The Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2010 dungarees are incredibly unflattering, as they are in the style of harem pants.

Then she adds a hairnet into the equation, plus fishnet gloves and multiple chains and D&G boots.

I wouldn’t even clean my house in this get up. *shakes head*

Runway To Westfields – Rihanna In Chanel

Just a little over a week ago Rihanna was in London to appear on the X Factor.

She returned to London for a photocall at London’s Westfield shopping centre yesterday to announce her UK tour.

Despite just hoping off a plane, the singer looked fresh faced wearing a black jumpsuit, with black pumps and a cropped Chanel Fall 2009 cardigan with blousen sleeves and a cuff detail around the wrist.

I’m surprised at how toned down this look is for Rihanna, I would have expected more drama from her.

Tickets for her UK tour go on sale tomorrow at 9am.

Her tour will begin in Birmingham on May 7 before ending in Glasgow on May 19.

In between she will play at the Liverpool Echo Arena, London’s O2, Sheffield Arena, Nottingham Trent FM Arena, Manchester MEN and Newcastle Metro Arena.

Social Events Of The Week

Out & About, LA

Prior to her party in London this week, Victoria Beckham was spotted out in LA with her boys wearing a very cute colourful mini Julian J Smith Spring 2010 dress with her curly bob, and blue suede YSL Trib Two heels.

Julian J Smith is a British designer who presented his first collection during London Fashion Week back in September, now he has one of the most photographed women in the world wearing his designs.

What a huge honour for him.

Avatar Photo Call, Berlin

Actresses Sigourney Weaver and Zoe Saldana attend a photocall to promote their film ‘Avatar’ Berlin.

Sigourney looked sophisticated wearing a metallic cardigan paired with wide-legged pants, whilst Zoe opted to show off her stunning legs.

Zoe wore one of the cutest pieces from Andrew GN’s Spring 2010 collection.

I love the crocheted top with a ruffled collar and black patent bow accent which complements her mini black satin skirt.

The look is teamed with a pair of beige Serigo Rossi platform heels.

BDOTW contender.

VEVO Launches Premiere Destination for Premium Music Video, New York

Lady GaGa donned an ethereal Valentino Spring 2010 dove grey strapless gown which looks like mounds of material wrapped around her tiny frame.

I love the dress, but she wears it too low down, and it gives her a look of having droopy boobs.

Even though many are over the bold shoulder trend Rihanna is still championing the look.

It seems like she just can’t get enough of spikey pieces either.

First rings, then dresses, now shoes which she pairs with her Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2009 Couture look which included a black jumpsuit, gold belt and cropped jacket look.

Ciara is such a lovely girl, with an amazing figure.

Her gold dress is outstanding, as it hugs that super toned body I’m so jealous of.

What I’m not jealous of are those red Louboutin thigh high heels.  They are cringe-worthy to say the least.

“The Lovely Bones” LA Premiere

Rachel Weisz looked so incredibly pretty wearing a baby blue strapless heavenly Valentino dress with silver platforms and a matching clutch.

Some might of opted for a neutral lip colour, but Rachel was bold enough to wear this floaty dress with bright red lips.

25.11.09 In Her Closet

In Rihanna’s Closet – Diego Dolcini, Dean Quinn, Alexander McQueen & The Blonds

It’s been a busy few days for Rihanna.

We start with her appearance at Best Buy in Union Square, New York where she signed copies of her new album “Rated R” and posed for pictures with fans.

She wore a strapless black jumpsuit featuring a draped detail, but it was the heels I was more interested in.

The singer wore a pair of Diego Dolcini origami satin peep-toe pumps.

The shoes are accented with a large leather origami-style rosette in metallic shades of gold, copper and silver.

It was the perfect accessory to add a bit of pizazz to her black ensemble.

Although I couldn’t find the exact version of Rihanna’s heels Luisa via Roma and both have a similar version.

For Rihanna’s appearance on ABC’s “Good Morning America” she wore less impressive heels, but the focus this time was on her Dean Quinn white blazer accented with bugle beads.

On her recent visit to London Rihanna must checked out a lot of our up-and-coming designers because she recently wore David Koma, now she’s wearing a piece from another Central St Martins graduate Dean Quinn.

This blazer was part of his 2009 graduate show consisting of 6 black and white pieces.

The bugle beads have very much become his signature as they were used on all 6 pieces.

You can check out his collection at Dean

Rihanna was all smiles when she arrived at the Ed Sullivan Theatre for her appearance on the “Late Show With David Letterman”.

What stood out on this occasion were her Alexander McQueen fold-down boots from the Fall 2009 collection.

These heels are very distinctive by the black and white houndstooth material which was heavily featured in McQueen’s Fall 2009 collection.

The final stop on Rihanna’s promotional tour yesterday was her “Rated R” Album Release Party at Juliet Supperclub.

The singer may have been fatigued after a long day, as she kept her sunglasses on whilst walking the red carpet.

It was that or she was worried she would poke her eye out on her spiked gold mini dress by design duo The Blonds.

This was my least favourite look as there’s too much gold from the hair, to the dress, to the spiked heels.
