Runway To “Food Inc.” London Screening – Stella McCartney In Stella McCartney

Celebrity BFFs Thandie Newton and Stella McCartney attended the “Food Inc.” VIP screening in London recently.

Thandie wore a black strapless pencil dress with an embroidered detail on the bodice, whilst sporting an Alexander Wang-inspired side sweeping plait.

I just love her studded clutch.

Gorgeous as always.

Designer Stella McCartney is unsurprisingly the first to wear a look from her own Pre-Fall 2010 collection.

The asymmetrical silk LBD is very simple, but as always Stella gives us that cool attitude which makes this a winning look.

I would’ve love a dash of colour from either lady, but they both look fabulous so all is forgiven.

Runway To Sidewalk – Cat Deeley In Stella McCartney

Cat Deeley has been in the US presenting “So You Think You Can Dance?” so we haven’t seen her much in the UK.

She was back last week and seen out on the town attending a jewelery party at the Connaught hotel in London with beau Jack Huston.

She had a ’70s vibe about her wearing a blue silk Stella McCartney Resort 2010 jumpsuit with bow tie.

She teamed it with black pointed heels, and a black white faux fur coat which she carried.

Her red-carpet dressing is equally impressive as her off-duty style.

I love this look, and I was so grateful she didn’t wear it with the runway belt.

Runway To School Run – Stella McCartney In Stella McCartney

Designer Stella McCartney was yesterday spotted in London dropping her children off at school and carrying a scooter home.

The stylish yummy mummy was not surprisingly head-to-toe wearing her own designs.

She wore a black Stella McCartney wool detailed short sleeve coat from her Pre-Fall 2009 collection, with Stella McCartney ombre jeans whilst carrying a Stella McCartney Falabella tote.

Her look was complete with a black turtleneck sweater and knee-high taupe boots.

A few weeks earlier the designer was spotted wearing the same jacket in ivory.

Oh to have so many options in so many colours…*sighs*

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better? Stella McCartney or Joanna Lumley

Back in June, before we even knew this Stella McCartney floral print dress was part of the designers Resort 2010 collection, Stella gave us a preview at The Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition Preview Party in London.

This collection was much loved and worn by many celebrities last year, yet it was still a surprise to see actress Joanna Lumley wearing it last night to the 2010 National Television Awards.

The other surprise was that the 63 year old legendary beautiful actress paired her dress with Vivienne Westwood ‘Black Lady Dragon’ wax slingbacks.

Had Joanna not worn the black leggings I may have given this win to her, but they kill the look for me so Stella wins.

This Stella McCartney dress is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter and Browns Fashion.

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better? Thandie Newton, Stella McCartney, Jessica Simpson or Liya Kebede

This coat come dress is from the Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection.

I love this but I must say I think I prefer it worn as a dress as seen on Thandie, Stella and Liya.

Thandie first wore this back in July to “A Buggs Life – Private View” in London.

She always looks so elegant and understated and I love that she’s worn her hair back to show off her amazing cheekbones.

I love that she worn it with bare legs, although this was July so the English winter weather hadn’t kicked in yet.

Her beaded clutch is gorgeous and I love that she’s kept it sans accessories. The cut of this coat speaks volumes by itself.

Stella wore this piece back in September to a dinner hosted by Alexandra Shulman “Celebrating 25 years Of London Fashion Week”.

I must say those tights actually work really well here as the pattern breaks up the block colour of the black.

Jessica wore this as a coat on October 13 to the “FFANY Shoes on Sale” hosted by QVC in New York.

It shows off her great curves and I love that she’s teamed it with peep-toes shoes and a cute clutch.

Model Liya wore this in November to “Glamour Women Of The Year” award in New York.

I love the shoulder bag she’s wearing and the way she’s hiked the sleeves up past her elbows.

Worn like this with the belt pulled in tight, this coat gives her an amazing tulip-like figure.

Because of the beautiful shape it gives her I think that Liya wore this coat/dress the best.

This coat is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter.

2009 Glamour Women of the Year Awards

Regular readers will know that I’m all about the drama.

The more dramatic the dress, the more I fall in love which is why I’m salivating over Rihanna’s Stéphane Rolland Spring 2009 Couture gown.

I expected Rihanna to walk red carpet wearing a Balmain Spring 2010 dress with cut-out details in the hips, so this was a very pleasant surprise.

The white Stéphane Rolland mermaid shaped gown had a pleated detail on the front which swirled around the bodice, before exploding all over the skirt.

This will be a love it or hate it dress. What say you?

Before I fell for Cate Blanchett, it was all about Catherine Zeta Jones. She was my first girl crush.

I had such admiration for her as she held her own on the red carpet amongst the Hollywood major players.

We haven’t seen much of her lately, but walking the red carpet at this event last night she proved that she hasn’t lost any of her sparkle.

CJZ looked outstanding wearing a navy blue Gustavo Cadile’s Resort 2010 lurex gown.

I loved cut, it flatters her so well. I also love how the gown shimmers.

Welcome back Mrs Jones-Douglas, we missed you.

From one ageless beauty to another.

Iman – as usual – looked OUT-Friggin-Standing.

It’s not easy to follow the gorgeous Karlie Kloss because she totally owns everything she wears on the runway.

But when you’re Iman, that doesn’t matter.

The uber model walked the red carpet wearing a pink Jason Wu Spring 2010 feathered confection that is totally delightful.

I love the neon green waistband and her matchy matchy runway platform heels.

She totally stands out as one of the best on this red carpet.

Never take a day of Iman….I BEG you.

Some of you have expressed your confusion as to why Kerry Washington receives so much praise for her red carpet choices.

Come on guys, looks at how amazing she looks wearing this Fendi Spring 2010 blush pink lace floor-length dress.

She looks simply elegant, the colour complements her skin-tone, she accessorized well with silver stunning jewels and a Christian Louboutin snake skin print clutch.

Her look is totally effortless.

What’s not to love?

The Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection still proves to be the most worn collection by celebrities this year.

Liya Kebede, joins Stella McCartney and Jessica Simpson who have both worn this coat/dress.

It’s not just celebrities who have fallen for Stella’s Resort collection.

Glamour magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive walked the red carpet with SVP & Publishing Director Bill Wackermann wearing the same Resort 2010 dress we’ve seen on Frieda Pinto.

It was no surprise that Stella McCartney was honoured at this event.

The designer was of course wearing self designed pieces which all worked well together.

Stella tends to wear a lot of black, so this pop of colour is really refreshing.

Serena Williams is getting the hand of this red carpet thing as she is radiant at this event wearing a red asymmetrical Pamella Roland gown.

I think she has looked her best yet after her stunning Gucci look a few weeks ago.

Yes she looks muscular, but there’s nothing she can do about that.

I would love to say I have finally embraced Katharine McPhee’s platinum blonde ‘do, but I continue to struggle with it.

Hair aside, I totally in love with her BODYAMR peacock blue jersey gown.

The gown shows off her figure, whilst the black patent leather trim and open back shows off Katharine’s sexy side.

The singer/actress accessorized with a black leather Perrin Paris 1893 Riva Pochette oversize clutch.

Maria Shriver looked fab wearing a black lace strapless Monique Lhuillier gown.

Amy Poehler glittered in a gold Stella McCartney cocktail dress.

Vogue’s Fashion Week Dinner Party

This picture of Victoria Beckham and Naomi Campbell really warmed my heart.

Two of our greatest British exports are in London to celebrate all that is good and great about fashion at Vogue’s private dinner party in London last night.

Victoria was – of course – wearing a dress from her new Spring 2010 collection.

I’m glad to see she opted for one of the cute sassy fun pieces, rather then the pencil dresses, and of course I’m thrilled that it’s a colourful piece.

The designer wore her dress with grey YSL Trib Two’s.

Naomi wore a modified, more wearable version of the Alexander McQueen Resort 2010 dress which Drew Barrymore wore recently.

The Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection will never become boring to me no matter how many pieces we see on celebs.

Natalia Vodianova stood alongside the creator of her ensemble wearing a gold embroidered jacket with a black embroidered dress which Stella McCartney wore to the Prada Congo Benefit earlier this year.

Stella opted for a sleek and sexy black coat dress paired with black heels.

I love what she’s done to her hair here, normally she has it pulled back.

Maybe this is her last chance to let her hair down before her much anticipated Spring 2010 show next month.

Agyness Deyn was also in attendance wearing a House of Holland Spring 2010 half black, half beige sleeveless leather tuxedo dress.

I know Agyness is one of fashion’s greatest chameleon, but I much prefer her as a blonde.

The supermodel wore her dress with heels from the same show.

Katie Grand posed alongside Victoria Beckham wearing a pretty pink Giles Spring 2008 strapless dress.

The dress with its voluminous skirt was decorated with laser cut floral details.

I love this dress.

Of course the Brit Pack were there.

Pixie Geldof has finally taken out those god awful extension.

Daisy Lowe wore a black two-tone dress, which is the theme of the night.

But Alexa Chung looked so so cute in her Luella Spring 2010 floral print dress with a heart-shape cut-out on the bodice.

Miley…THIS is the type of cute dress you should be wearing, but in saying that I would prefer it on Selena Gomez.

So proud to write about British fashion, everyone looked fabulous at this event. They could all be up for Best Dressed Of The Week minus Pixie and Daisy.
