Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Most Disappointing Award
I love Yasmin Le Bon and I love Christopher Kane, but it pains me to admit this recently collaboration isn’t really setting my world on fire.

At the 2010 British Fashion Awards in London tonight, Yasmin wore her second Christopher Kane Spring 2011 look within 2 weeks and my issue with the first remains the same for this look – it makes her appear boxy.

Yasmin is a supermodel and we all how time standstill for these rare beautiful creatures, so she should be able to wear anything and make me go weak at the knees.

Sadly yet again I’m wishing she’d picked something else in the collection that would have given her a more shape and a defined waist.

Nude suede pumps and a gold clutch completed her look.

Yasmin Le Bon like some many supermodels refuses to age.

She was seen walking the red carpet in Madrid last night for the 2010 Marie Claire Prix de la Mode Awards.

Whilst most of the other ladies wore elegant gowns, Yasmin opted for something with a bit more bite.

She becomes the first person to wear a look from Christopher Kane’s Spring 2011 collection on the red carpet.

Although this particular look didn’t make it on the runway, you can see variations of her look below as they share the same print and neon yellow stripes.

A look like this needed an interesting pair of heels, so Yasmin added Azzedine Alaia cut-out suede ankle boots to her look.

Although the details of the heels are interesting, they feel a bit heavy for her dress.

On the runway all the stripes have a narrowing effect around the waist, but Yasmin’s doesn’t.

I would’ve loved this look more had waist been narrower or if she’d worn a belt to nip in her waist.

“A Steady Rain” Broadway Opening Night, New York

What does Ellen Barkin, Nicole Kidman and Kyra Sedgwick have in common?

They all love wearing L’Wren Scott’s figure-hugging dresses.

Nicole Kidman has actually worn this black and white trimmed L’Wren Scott Headmistress dress.

Nicole opted for red peep-toes, but Ellen wore t-bar patent Christian Louboutin’s to complete her look.

Hair Magazine Awards, London

UK TV and Radio presenter Lauren Laverne wore a Jonathan Saunders Fall 2009 LBD, which had a wet-look bodice wrapped around stunning embellishments.

I love the her curly cropped bob and her flawless make-up.

Even though I personally don’t like tights, this head-to-toe look really works well for her.

The Richard Nicoll Fall 2009 runway fashion-forward piece has been soften to a pink & nude silk slip dress on Donna Air.

She added grey sandals and a silver statement necklace to complete her look.

Tamsin Egerton looks stunning wearing an Alexander Wang one-sleeved jersey ruched dress, which just goes to prove that Wang’s clothes are desired on both sides of the Atlantic.

It’s getting cooler temperature-wise in London, but thankfully Tamsin didn’t opt for tights.

She instead showed-off her enviable legs wearing gold peep-toes.

VV Brown often wears edgy, unknown designers or a lot of vintage pieces, but on this occasion I can spot an embellished Topshop jacket.

The look is paired with a vintage faux-fur hat, black pants and nude ballet pumps.

Jenny Frost’s dress says one thing, “I want to attention.”

I may have liked the dress if it had fit better.  It just a piece of material hanging from her paired with a black belt.

“UNITE Unveiled: Gen Art’s Fresh Faces In Fashion”, LA

‘The Hills’ star Kristen Cavallari looked lovely wearing a lacy nude top with a black leather skirt and nude patent Brian Atwood heels.

I’m very impressed that her flesh coloured bra isn’t immediately noticeable.

If this was Heidi Montag she would’ve won a bright pink bra just to draw attention to herself.

“Rock A Little, Feed A Lot” Benefit Concert, LA

Marcia Cross looked surprisingly raunchy in her Dsquared² embellished top, with James Jean’s “Twiggy” legging jeans.

It’s hard to believe Isla Fisher is a mother of one, because looks so young.

She kept her look super casual wearing a graphic print tee, short black leather skirt and zipper gladiator sandals.

Jenna Dewan opted for a H&M multi-coloured striped dress, paired with black leggings and navy pumps.

02 X Awards 2009, London

Yasmin Le Bon wore a berry velvet suit from her YLB for Wallis collection, paired with a black blouse.

Make-up free but still gorgeous.

The Scene Record Release Party, LA

Selena Gomez is the epitome of chic at her album launch party wearing nude silk top, a chocolate sequin mini skirt and nude patent heels.

The side-parted pony tail gives this look a youthful feel which has been missing from previous looks.

Celebrities designing is all the rage. We’ve had the good: Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss.

The bad: Lauren Conrad and the ugly Heidiwood by Heidi Montag.

Whitney Eve by Whitney Port is yet to find a category after only debuting 2 weeks ago during New York Fashion Week.

Yasmin Le Bon has teamed up with Wallis to design her own collection called YLB For Wallis.

It made it’s debut 2 weeks ago, and already it’s in the good category for me as Yasmin has been the perfect brand ambassador wearing several pieces from the collection at high profile events – something Whitney Port is yet to do.

At the Herve Leger launch party on Thursday evening Yasmin wore the peradot pleat neck silk mini dress (£80) and bottle green kid fur cape (£90).

On Saturday Yasmin watched the Kinder Aggugini show during London Fashion week wearing the ink velvet suit jacket (£70) and black blouse (£65).

And on Sunday evening Yasmin partied at the Topshop dinner wearing the grey maxi dress (£65).

Who knew fashion this fabulous could be so affordable.

You can view the whole collection which includes dresses, pants, blouses, blazers and stunning jewelry at YLB For Wallis.

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.
