Who Wore Acne Better? Solange Knowles or Alesha Dixon

Solange Knowles has always been a bit of a risk taker when it comes to red carpet dressing as she loves to do her own thing and doesn’t follow any rules.

She brought a ray of sunshine to the red carpet to celebrate Rimmel’s 10 Year Partnership in London back in September wearing an Acne ‘Emile’ silk one-shoulder dress which had a lot going on.

It had a softly draped upper body, an open back and a split to the waist with a shorter skirt revealed underneath.

Nude pumps, a supa-dupa ‘fro and a statement ring completed her look.

Alesha Dixon wore the same dress on Friday when she helped kick off ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ auditions in Manchester.

She also opted for nude pumps and added a selection of gold bracelets.

Whilst I admire her for wearing such a bold look on a cold and rainy day in Manchester, she doesn’t quite own it like Solange.

Solange wins by a very long mile for me.

Solange Knowles – Burberry Body Launch Event

Solange Knowles was spinning the decks at the Burberry Body Launch event which was hosted at the Beverly Hills store by Christopher Bailey and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley yesterday evening.

She wore a print shirt and a teal high-waist skirt with an asymmetrical detail.

It’s a good thing she wore those Burberry Prorsum Resort 2012 beaded sandals, because the rest of her ensemble is a big miss; especially the skirt.

I appreciate that she wanted to be individual at this event and not a head-to-toe runway clone, but she would’ve looked a whole lot better wearing a look from the Burberry Spring or Resort 2012 collection.

Since she’s very much into wearing tribal prints, I’m very surprised she didn’t lap up this collection.

On this occasion she sported a tamer ‘fro to the Diane Ross-like mane she showcased on her last red carpet outing.

Solange Knowles In Alessandra Rich – 2011 Angel Ball

Evan Rachel Wood wasn’t the only one to wear an Alessandra Rich look on the red carpet last night, as Solange Knowles did too.

I honestly thought this was Diana Ross on the red carpet at the 2011 Angel Ball at first glance.

The singer/DJ looked sensational wearing an Alessandra Rich white pearl-embellished silk crepe de chine gown from the Fall 2011 collection.

Her elegant draped gown was teamed with silver accessories accented with colourful embellishments, which gave her retro look a contemporary touch.

A stunning matte coral lip colour and a wild curly ‘fro completed her look.

Solange Knowles In Acne – Rimmel Celebrates 10 Year Partnership With Kate Moss

Solange Knowles brought a ray of sunshine to the red carpet to celebrate Rimmel’s 10 Year Partnership with Kate Moss at Battersea Power Station on Thursday whilst rocking a supa dupa ‘fro.

The DJ/singer wore an Acne Emile silk one-shoulder dress.

Her elegant lemon floor sweeping single sleeve dress has a softly draped upper body and an open back.

She maximized the thigh split with nude high heeled pumps.

Pops of pink on the lips and orange on the nails are fun colourful additions to her dress.

A large cocktail ring completed her look.

Mulberry’s 40th Birthday Party

Mulberry ?’s NY.

Following the opening of their brand new flagship store at 134 Spring Street last Tuesday, they celebrated their 40th birthday party by throwing a lavish bash on the roof top of Skylight West on Monday night.

We sipped margaritas and scoffed down the canapés before taking to the multi-coloured lit dance-floor to rock out to Kasabian who played a 45 minute set.

A balloon artist made us animal shaped balloons and hats which was a fun addition to the party.

My friend from New York Daily News and I set about looking for the celebs at the party.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The actress quietly sat in the corner looking effortless and serene wearing a Mulberry Tille wrap dress from the Fall 2011 collection. She added a simple black blazer to her print dress and carried a Mulberry ‘Effie’ satchel from the Resort 2012 collection.

Solange Knowles: The face of Rimmel cosmetics is one of the nicest celebrities I have ever met. She’s beautiful and happy to talk to randoms like me. She wore a Mary Katrantzou Vienouas silk-georgette reversible shirt dress with Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte gold wedges whilst carrying a Mulberry ‘Fox Lock’ bag. She was impressed that I was able to name all her pieces (girl, this is what I do). I was stumped on her jewelery which she told me was by Lia Sophia.

Rose Byrne: As you know I have a mild large girl crush on Rose Byrne. The Australian actress was glowing wearing a Mulberry Resort 2012 gold pleat dress. I love the pop of colour via her aqua blue earrings. A white Mulberry mini ‘Taylor’ bag from the Resort 2012 collection and nude pumps I wasn’t too fond of completed her look.

Solange Knowles’ Emilio Pucci ‘Marquise’ Bag – INC International Concepts Announcement

Solange Knowles and her son Daniel Julez Smith, Jr. attend the INC International Concepts announcement at Open House Gallery in New York City last night.

The singer/DJ managed to restore my love for the colour-blocking trend after it was butchered on the red carpet the night before by Rashida Jones and Elizabeth Banks.

She wore a beige, black and red INC top with some J. Crew mustard cropped pants and animal print YSL Tribute pumps.

Apart from her top my main focus was on her Emilio Pucci ‘Marquise’ bag.

Pucci’s “it” bag has an adjustable gold chain strap with a leather handle, plus pierced and studded gold hardware along the edges of the front flap closure.

This gorgeous Fall 2011 bag is availble to purchase from EmilioPucci.com.

Net-a-Porter and Mr Porter Host A Party For Dolce & Gabbana

In London last night Net-A-Porter.com and Mr Porter.com hosted a party to celebrate Dolce & Gabbana joining the forever expanding list of brands on their virtual shelves.

Celebs donned in their finest Dolce & Gabbana treads to join in the celebrations at Net-A-Porter HQ.

Naomi Campbell: The supermodel and long-term friend of Mr Dolce and Mr Gabbana wore an animal print chiffon halter dress with black Alaia cut-out suede sandals.

Alexandra Burke: The British singer opted to wear a dark pink Dolce & Gabbana strapless lace bustier which she teamed with black lace Dolce & Gabbana peep-toes and a gold clutch. The clutch is really not working for me. Like really really not working for me.

Jamie Winstone: As you know I have a soft spot for Jamie. The British actress is never boring on the red carpet. She opted to wear a colourful Dolce & Gabbana floral print satin dress which she paired with Michael van der Ham blue devore wedges, which were worn over black socks. I was going to say that her shoe choice is shocking, but everyone else opted for black heels so I should be grateful she did something different. Read More…
