Who Wore Stella McCartney Better? Victoria Beckham, Lily Cole, Kate Walsh or Stella McCartney

It’s not unusual for Victoria Beckham to be first when it comes to fashion. She was the first to wear these Stella McCartney ankle zip skinny ombre jeans whilst making her way through Heathrow airport earlier this year.

She wore them with her leather Balmain jacket, Loewe hat, Christian Louboutin’s and white Kelly Travel bag.

Model/actress Lily Cole wore the same jeans with a loose fitting dusky pink top and multi-coloured strappy heels to “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” Photo Call during Cannes Film Festival.

Kate Walsh wore hers with a sparkling Stella McCartney tank top during a photo call at the Monte Carlo TV Festival.

And finally the designer of these beautiful jeans – Stella McCartney – wore hers with a cropped jacket from her Resort 2010 collection to the presentation of her new collection at “The Corner” in Berlin.

This is a tough one, because everyone looks great minus Lily because I really dislike her shoes.

Stella wins this for me, as her look is the most effortless and most chic.

These jeans are available to purchase from Net-A-Porter international for £157.50/€206.50.

Social Events Of The Week

Ischia Global Film & Music Fest 2009, Italy

Elsa Pataky always seems to be in couture weather it’s Elie Saab or Armani Privé.

On this occasion she wore an open back Armani Privé Spring 2009 dress with the beautiful web-like embroidered detail.

2009 Giffoni Film Festival, Italy

Eva Mendes was the epitome of summer chic wearing a Tibi Fall 2009 belted floral print maxi dress with Samantha Willis jewels and Stuart Weitzman “Alex” crochet espadrilles.

Da Silvano Restaurant, New York

Rihanna was out to lunch in New York where she was spotted showing off her new mohawk.

She’s clipped the sides and back of her head, leaving the top untouched. She rocks it well, but it’s a look I’ll never copy.

Rihanna isn’t shy as she has been wearing very revealing clothing lately.

I think this is the 4th time I’ve seen her bra through the sheer tops she loves to wear.

This time she wore a sheer top over a striped bikini with a pair of skinny ankle zip jeans.

She completed her look with Maison Martin Margiela shoe boots and a Nina Ricci bag.

“Charlotte Russe Fall 2009 Launch Event”

Jessica Szohr is fast becoming a red carpet regular. This time she was wearing a two-tone Charlotte Russe playsuit which showed off her toned legs.

She completed her look with beautiful black strappy sandals, a large statement necklace and a maroon clutch.

Michelle Trachtenberg’s black dress is so so, but I love her Giuseppe Zanotti clutch with multi-coloured stars and her electric blue ankle boots.

I can’t really fault Rumer Willis’ look.

Yes it’s all black and verging on dull, but at least the fit is right and she doesn’t look awkward.

Her look is paired with Christian Louboutin Paquita sandals and a black D&G clutch.

Casio Exilim MOBILE NYC Launch, New York

For once Taylor Momsen isn’t dressed like a Guns n’ Roses groupie, but her eye make-up is too heavy for that cute white dress she is wearing

Stella McCartney Presents New Collection At The Corner Berlin, Germany

Cool and chic as always Stella McCartney presented her new collection in Berlin wearing a Resort 2010 black cropped jacket, a white half tucked in tee and ombre ankle jeans from her own collection.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Anna Paquin channeled her inner geisha girl wearing this black figure-hugging dress Alexander McQueen dress with Jimmy Choo heels and a chic updo.

It’s On With Alexa Chung, New York

What’s with everyone wearing leather this summer?

We first had Chloe Sevigny wearing a leather jumpsuit this week, and now we have Ashley Greene wearing leather shorts.

The “Twilight” actress wore them with her cute floral Escada blouse to the MTV Studios this week.

Her sassy look was complete with sexy strappy sandals and a Gucci Hysteria bag.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Marion Cotillard & Stella McCartney

I was quite surprised when Marion Cotillard took the lead in her Vivienne Westwood red dress, because I was certain you would all vote for the pink Dior dress.

I did consider Marion’s Dior dress too, but I dislike the wedges the more I saw them so instead I voted for Stella McCartney in her own Resort 2010 dress.

Even though it was a quiet week Stella stood out for me because her look was simple yet not redundant. Black but not boring. Chic and uniquely Stella.

It also helps that I’m totally in love with her Resort 2010 collection.

Prada Congo Benefit Party

Stella McCartney looks beautiful wearing a black jacquard short sleeved dress from her own Resort 2010 collection.

I love the faux leather wrap around belt as it stands out more than the runway belt, and I also love her self designed mesh sandals.

Stella does wear her hair down from time to time, but we’re most used to seeing this pulled back style.

This “just thrown” on effortless look is one of my favourite this week.

When I first saw this textured silk Lanvin Spring 2009 one-shouldered dress on the runway, I knew it would need someone on the red carpet to bring it to life and I was right.

Princess Rosario Nadal of Bulgaria does just that as the dress hangs better on her.

On the runway it seems to sit too high on the model waist.

I love her choice of an ivory clutch and pewter strappy sandals.

Absolutely stunning.

Natalia Vodianova and Valentino are still inseparable. The designer and his one-time muse arrived at this event arm in arm which is good to see.

The barefaced model wore a black ensemble including a satin skirt and jersey top, under a champagne coloured Prada crushed silk coat.

Anouck Lepere is another stunning model who doesn’t need make-up to look beautiful.

She glowed wearing a red crepe sleeved dress with gathered details on the shouldered and at the waist.

Her dress is stunning but her red and black t-bar heels are drool worthy as they have a red and black satin bow on the heel.

Gold armlets and a black bag complete this look.

Model Liberty Ross showed off her toned legs wearing a sexy black Alexander McQueen stretch lace bandage dress which she toughen up with a pair of Alexander McQueen open-toe boots with the fold-over panels up.

A Pauric Sweeney envelope clutch completes this sexy look with a bit of a edge.

The McCartney Family Launches “Meat-Free Monday”

“Meat Free Monday” is the McCartney family’s new initiative to encourage meat-eaters to forgo meat for one day each week. I did my bit yesterday as I only had sushi.

Stella McCartney’s muse Kate Bosworth showed her support for the campaign, and for Stella McCartney’s Resort 2010 collection.

The actress wore a stunning cute ivory skirt suit.

The skirt is high waisted with a cute bow detailing, and she opted to wear her look with a white tank instead of the black runway shirt, which is perfect for a sunny day in London.

Her look was complete with Stella McCartney platform pumps.

I really love Stella McCartney’s casual style as much as her glamorous style.

Casual was the order of the day as she wore a striped blazer, a white tank, and jeans. It’s a simple everyday look, but with does of McCartney magic.

Model Anouck Lepere was also on hand for support.

She wore a grey sequined tunic dress, with low slung tie and gold pumps.

It’s like a fabulous well-dress family picnic.

I don’t think I will ever tire of this Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection.

Stella McCartney’s Resort 2010 Collection

Looking at Stella McCartney’s Resort 2010 collection, we’ve seen it before.

Not in a bad sense, but we’ve actually seen some of these pieces previewed by Stella, over the past few weeks, because as ever Stella is way ahead when it comes to fashion.

She’s been wearing her Resort collection since the Met Gala last month, arriving with her ‘angels’ wearing a lace jumpsuit. At the ‘Time’s 100 Most Influential People In The World’ red carpet, were she wore the lace bowed skirt.

Most recently she wore a floral sculptural Spring 2010 dress to the ‘Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition Preview Party’ in London, and a white playsuit was worn to the ‘Opening Of The New Contemporary Art Centre’ in Venice.

She hasn’t been keeping her new designs to herself. Two of her Met Gala angels, Liv Tyler and Kate Hudson, have also wore pieces from this collection.

I really love this collection. It’s playful, and powerful, yet fun, flirty and feminine.

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.
