Topshop & Topman LA Opening Launch Party

Topshop LA

Topshop will open its doors for the first time today at The Grove in Califorina.

Last night, Sir Philip Green invited a host of Hollywood stars to help celebrate the grand opening at Cecconi’s West Hollywood on Melrose Avenue.

Ashley Madekwe: The ‘Revenge’ actress was my favourite from this event. She donned a sexy Topshop mixed-texture bodycon dress that I have been cruising for a while. After seeing Ashley, I say she owned it, so I will not be attempting to follow her. Simple styling completed her sporty look.

Solange Knowles: No surprises that Solange picked a look from the edgier Topshop Unique section. Her silk check shirt, cross-print shorts and black blazer were styled with Chanel Spring 2013 striped platform pumps.

Demi Lovato: Even with what appears to be a broken foot, I am not surprised to see Demi Lovato attend this event. The singer and X Factor judge pretty much wears Topshop exclusively and I’m sure this store will become a home away from home for her.

Liberty Ross: The model/actress has gone through some tough times, so I feel bad in saying that her Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2012 dress screams desperate and attention seeking which I find totally ironic.

Solange Knowles In Ralph & Russo Couture – 2013 Grammy Awards

Solange Knowles In Ralph & Russo Couture - 2013 Grammy AwardsWhile her sister Beyoncé went for a black and white ensemble, Solange Knowles once again showed off her love of vibrant hues at Sunday’s 2013 Grammy Awards, hosted at the Staples Center in California.

Donning a shiny and slinky, emerald-green Ralph & Russo Couture gown, she worked one of those ubiquitous, thigh-high slits to her advantage.

The structured cap sleeve of the dress added a jolt of quirkiness, as did those fluorescent coral-pink pumps.

But it was Solange’s extreme ‘do that really rocked this red carpet.

Solange Knowles In Diane von Furstenberg – Grammy Week LA Music Industry Reception

Solange Knowles In Diane von Furstenberg - Grammy Week LA Music Industry Reception

Solange Knowles managed to make it out of the East Coast before the snow storms hit New York City today, to attend the Grammy Week LA Music Industry reception held at The Getty House in LA yesterday evening.

Doing what she does best, pushing the fashion envelope and delighting with colour, the singer wore a Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2013 suit.

This glorious explosion of colour has me gasping for air. There is not a single thing I do not love about this look.

The splash-print look, which is an exuberant spin on a classic suit, was styled with a simple white shirt, a blue Jimmy Choo ‘Candy’ clutch and black sandals.

We know Solange loves to experiment, so I’m glad the shirt is solid and not a contrasting print, which she has channelled once before.

Some of you aren’t so keen on Solange’s love of print and colour. Does this make you a believer?

Solange Knowles In Ostwald Helgason – 4th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Music Event

Solange Knowles In Ostwald Helgason - 4th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Music Event

Solange Knowles attended the 4th annual ESSENCE Black Women In Music event held at the Greystone Manor Supperclub in West Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

Sporting her trademark ‘fro and bold lip colour, the singer/DJ wore an Ostwald Helgason Resort 2013 top and a-line skirt.

This collection, created by London-based designer duo Susanne Ostwald and Ingvar Helgason, which focuses on bold, multi-coloured diagonal stripes, was a huge hit with street-style stars such as Miroslava Duma and Anya Ziourova, so I’m not surprised to see Solange wear this brand.

Continuing to take the not-so-over-the-top approach to styling her ensemble, Solange styled her look with shoes by another London-based designer, Nicholas Kirkwood.

Despite this relatively modest kitten heel, I do like her black, silver and white toe-cap pumps.

Solange Knowles In Sportmax – Audi Forum New Orleans

Solange Knowles In Sportmax - Audi Forum New Orleans

Solange Knowles was the guest DJ at the Audi Forum New Orleans held at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in Louisiana on Saturday evening.

Prior to taking up her duties, she was spotted on the red carpet sporting a more muted look than we’ve come to expect from the colour-loving, print-obsessed fashionista.

The singer/DJ wore a white ensemble from the Sportmax Spring 2013 collection, featuring an oversized leather coat, a sheer top and an asymmetrical-cut leather skirt.

Even her Gucci ankle-cuff sandals came in one solid colour, but she did provide a pop of colour courtesy of her bold fuchsia lips.

My only issue with this look is the size: it feels too big for Solange. I would’ve also loved to have seen the look without the jacket.
