Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition Preview Party

Agyness Deyn seems less annoying lately, mostly because she isn’t shoved in my face 24/7.

The model wore a gunmetal grey Giles Fall 2009 ultra mini dress, on a very mild evening in London, whilst carrying a blue House of Holland bag in the shape of a Monopoly house.

The super, who is only 5ft 8in, looks super-sized wearing a pair of black and white Christian Louboutin Differa sandals.

The berry shade of lippie doesn’t work for me, but was the right choice for her overall look, unlike her bubble gum pink nails.

Christopher Kane’s designs are so unique and so well structured, I’m surprised we don’t see more of his pieces on the red carpet.

Yasmin le Bon wore a nude Christopher Kane high neckline dress from his Spring 2009 collection, which is detailed with horizontal and vertical black leather scallops covering the dress.

The exquisite detail of this show-piece makes a very strong style statement, and I’m glad Yasmin pulls this of so effortlessly.

A fabulous dress, needs fabulous heels, and Yasmin doesn’t disappoint in that department either, wearing a stunning pair of Christian Dior Spring 2009 heels.

I don’t tend to find socialites very interesting, but I love Poppy Delevigne’s Chanel Spring 2009 gown.

She’s totally breath-taking, as she wears the gown which just an elegant grace, that she totally puts the model in the shade.

I much prefer the gown, without the brooch chain detail.

Erin O’Connor was a regal as ever, wearing black Temperley London Fall 2009 gown, with gold embroidered details.  She opted out of wearing the sari, which was presented on the runway.

Stella McCartney is so ahead of the game, I think it’s safe to assume that this glorious floral confection, with bold shoulders, and sculptural hips will be part of her Spring 2010 collection

Her shoes are also pretty spectacular, but they look like they’d pinch after a while.

Regardless, they are on my wish list. I like a good challenge.

I normally love what Beth wears, but this string vest look, I can’t get on board with.

Beth joins a long list of stars who have fallen for the ever so lust worthy Louis Vuitton Spicy heels.

All I can say about Alexa Chung is, I like her pink Chanel bag. The rest is to be expected, especially her two-tone hair.

Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World

I know many don’t share my love for Michelle Obama style choices, as many of you are still reeling over her wearing a cardigan to meet the Queen of England, but I did sigh with admiration when I saw her at this event.

The First Lady wore a simple black sleeveless Michael Kors gown, with a Peter Sorenon corset, accessorizing with multiple strands of necklaces, and simple diamond studs.

She wore her hair pulled back, her poise was authoritative, yet she’s so incredibly charming.

I curse the stand being in front of her, because I think the most interesting part of the dress is the corset around her waist, which gives her dress very a defined shape.

Oh Mrs O….*sighs*

Kate Hudson, one of Stella McCartney’s Met Gala Angels on Monday night, arrived wearing a sexy ivory Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2009 suit, consisting of a herringbone jacket, trousers and silk blouse.

Her look was complete with her hair tied back loosely, and gold Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toes.

I would’ve loved to have seen Kate rock this suit without the blouse, but it won’t have been appropriate for this particular occasion.

I wish to thank Liv Tyler for restoring my faith in this particular Stella McCartney Fall 2009 lace cut-out dress.

On the runway it was grey, and the illusion was too milky to be considered an illusion.

I love Liv’s black version, which she playful poses in showing of her Cartier ring.

Time 100 Honoree Stella McCartney, is quite possibly one of the coolest chicks on this planet.

She was of course head-to-toe in her own pieces consisting of a black cotton t-shirt, black lace embroidered skirt, organza shrug and black strappy platform sandals.

The shrug and skirt are so divine.

Diane Sawyer’s look oozes sophistication wearing a black off-the-shoulder top, with a ivory and black striped skirt.

Jimmy Fallon arrived with his gorgeous wife Nancy Juvonen.

She looked amazing wearing a Marchesa one shoulder navy gown, with a silver embellished asymmetrical neckline.

You may remember Georgina Chapman – the designer of this dress – wore it to the Metropolitan Opera last year.

Designer Vivienne Tam quite shamelessly, but harmlessly uses this event to promote her self designed HP Netbook.

The designer complimented the background, wearing a red embroidered dress from her Spring 2009 collection.

Claire Danes gave us the cold-shoulder with her black jersey dress, with cut-out shoulders.

M.I.A. was at this event, looking quite muted by her standards.

She wore the celebrity must have Alexander Wang suede and leather motorcycle jacket, under a Preen Line black dress. What…no sneakers???

"Forces For Nature" Benefit


Stella McCartney attended the Forces For Nature Benefit in New York last night, wearing a blue satin mini dress, with a sheer panel yoke, from her Fall 2009 collection.

The dress looks far better on the model, but I love how she accessorized her look with those edgy patterned boots, which are also from her Fall 2009 collection.


Stella’s father Paul McCartney was there, with his partner Nancy Shevell. She supported her could-be-daughter-in-law, by wearing a piece from Stella’s Spring 2009 collection.

The sequin jumpsuit was covered up by a felt coat, for which I was thankful. This is not an easy look to pull off. Amber Valletta did, but being a former model, that’s to be expected.

Nancy completes her look with a pair of kitten heels. This was the nail in the coffin for this terrible look. She how she looked without the coat below.


Ziyi Zhang managed to redeem herself, following two disappointing looks last week.

She wore a black Stella McCartney bandage dress, with tights, black sandals and a black clutch.

The halter-neck dress, has cut-out shoulders, and off-the-shoulder cap sleeves.

I’m not sure about the shell necklace. It looks kinda awkward, as I think the dress speaks for itself, and doesn’t need anything extra.


Diane von Furstenberg went against that Stella McCartney dress code, and wore a LBD, with her own Fall 2009 geometric print black and white coat, with Christian Louboutin sandals.

I love her infectious smile.

In Mary-Kate Olsen’s Closet – Stella McCartney & Alexander Wang “Coco” Duffel Bag


Following what the Olsen twins wear is not always easy, because they’re more likely to be wearing vintage pieces.

On this occasion Mary-Kate Olsen has been papped twice wearing black Stella McCartney Mesh basket sandals.

The open-toe slingback heels are made of synthetic leather, and have a basket mesh weave across the front of the heel.

They retail at $995 and £425/€545 from Net-A-Porter. These shoes also came is a nude colour, which was worn by Katie Holmes, but they have since sold out.

Mary-Kate is carrying a studded duffel bag named “Coco”.

The bag has been in huge demand since Mary-Kate was spotted carrying it. The fresh off the Alexander Wang Fall 2009 runway bag, isn’t due to hit stores in July though.

Social Events Of The Week

“The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button” Japan Premiere

In 2008 Angelina Jolie wore nothing but black, so I was praying for colour from her on the red carpet in 2009.

The problem is all her non-black dresses, have been so-so, whereas this black Reem Acra satin wrap dress is so divine on her. She is radiant.

This is the best she has looked this year for me.

“Changeling” Tokyo Press Conference

Despite the conservative nature of Angelina Jolie’s dove grey Ralph Lauren dress with cap sleeves, she looked gorgeous at her Changeling press conference in Tokyo today.

She wore her dress with her favorite pumps by Stuart Weitzman.

Byron & Tracey Salon Party, LA

Speaking of gorgeous, no one does the boho/hippy look better than Nicole Richie. For her it’s not a trend, just a style that she feels comfortable with, and suits her perfectly.

Her kimono-style blue and white printed Issa dress doesn’t drown her tiny frame, in fact it’s a perfect fit.

She completes her look with a snake-skin clutch.

Stella McCartney Paris Store Opening

Wearing her own head to toe designs, Stella McCartney opens her new Paris store with her father by her side.

Dasha Zhukova is known to many as just the girlfriend to billionaire Roman Abramovich, but she is also the designer of Kova & T.

The designer looks really cute wearing on of my favourite knit dresses from the Rodarte Fall 2008 collection.

VH1 Presents Pepsi Smash Super Bowl Bash, Florida

Kim Kardashian wore a black strapless mini Ina Soltani dress with a feathered hem. She wore her dress with a black cropped jacket, and YSL Trib Two heels.

The dress is cute, but it looks like she is growing out her bangs already, and it’s very much in the in-between awkward phase.

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better? Salma Hayek or Amanda Seyfried


Beyonce Knowles and Olivia Wilde’s Reem Acra gown was not the only re-run at the Golden Globe Awards.

Salma Hayek was the first to wear this pearl Stella McCartney silk asymmetrical gown, with a beaded detail on the shoulder, when she attended an The Art Of Elysium event during November.

The actress wore her dress, with very questionable headgear.

We saw Amanda Seyfried grace the red carpet on Sunday at the Golden Globe Awards wearing the same gown, which she complimented with a Daniel Swarovski clutch.

As much as I love Salma, this gown suits Amanda’s milky complexion better.

I am sure you will not be surprised to know that this dress is now sold-out on Net-A-Porter.com.

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better? Victoria Beckham or Anne Hathaway


For this edition of Who Wore it Better? I’m taking it to the streets.

In my Best Of 2008 posts, I gave Victoria Beckham the Best Sidewalk Style Award, because the sidewalk is her catwalk, and no one can out do her when it comes to shopping in 6″ heels and Balenciaga dresses to go shopping at The Grove.

This was evident when she breezed through Heathrow airport back in November.

Not one to wear tights and ruin an ensemble whilst it was raining in London -see why I love her- Victoria wore her taupe Stella McCartney Felt military coat, with a matching taupe Hermes bag, brown hat, and Christian Louboutin Arielle Ankle Boots.

Anna Hathaway was spotted in New York wearing the same coat in a creamy beige colour, when she made her way to The Early Show in New York on Monday.

Like Victoria, Anne wore her coat with celebrity shades, and unbuckled but tied at the waist.

As much as I am crushing on Anne at the moment, and as much as she looks fabulous giving Victoria a run for her money in her playground. I have to give this to VB.

The coat, the hat, the bag all compliment each other perfectly, plus she doesn’t have a stylist putting her together, so she deserves more credit.


You can buy the taupe Stella McCartney coat Victoria is wearing from the international Net-A-Porter site for £1,175/€1,570.

12th Annual ACE Awards

Chloe Sevigny is one person who you can never predict on the red carpet. She can go sophisticated, she can go quirky, she can go grungy. Whatever the weather, she always looks effortlessly perfect.

Here is a classic example. The actress is wearing a pale blue shirt dress, with a stunning jeweled necklace, tan strappy sandals and carrying a metallic purse.

My supermodel girl crush Coco Rocha, takes a night off fierce posing, to smile so sweetly wearing a black Stella McCartney Fall 2008 dress.

This silk chiffon dress flows from the beautiful black embroidery which sits slightly off the shoulder, and drapes into a puffball shape at the hem which is also embroidered.

Completing her look she carries a cream clutch, and wears two-tone cream and black heels.

Stella McCartney poses with legendary singer Chrissie Hynde, wearing a tuxedo jumpsuit from her own Spring 2009 collection, over a simple white tee.

Only Stella can make this look cool.

Helena Christensen does sexy so well wearing this nude paillette covered Stella McCartney dress.

The face of the new very raunchy Agent Provocateur campaign, looks so incredibly sexy.

This tan colour of Selita Ebanks’ Gianfranco Ferré gown is so buttery against her gorgeous skin.

She carries her hair cut so well.

Noemie Lenoir wearing a bright yellow Rachel Roy dress, to keep away the winter blues.

Tamara Mellon sure does wear a lot of flowing gowns, but this is not surprising since this look suits her so well, and is very much the trait of the Halston collection, which she recently revived.

Dana Delaney needs a stylist….immediately.

Surprisingly this is by Pucci.
