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.
