Michelle Obama In Alexander McQueen – President Jintao State Dinner

Later that same day President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama greeted President Jintao of the People’s Republic of China, on the North Portico at the White House in Washington, D.C. for a state dinner given in his honor.

She floors me wearing an Alexander McQueen Resort 2011 gown which completed a double for her wearing British designers yesterday, as she also wore Roksanda Ilincic.

There are many of you who believe that there are certain style rules when it comes to being a First Lady, but Mrs O marches to the beat of her own drum which is why her style choices have become a world obsession.

Her red gown with a black brush-stroke print as been ever so slightly modified from the runway as the sleeves are less poufy.

Mrs O also wears the dress with one sleeve off-the-shoulder.

This is a great colour and I’m glad she styled the look with a chic updo.

She may have a huge glam squad behind her, but when she steps onto the red carpet she makes everything seem so effortless.

The sign of a true fashion icon.

Definitely a BDOTW contender. It gave me goosebumps.

Beautiful one-of-a-kind Kimberly McDonald earrings completed her look. The unique black geode and ruby earrings accentuated the red hue of her gown perfectly.

Jennifer Hudson In Alexander McQueen – 2010 Gem Awards

Jennifer Hudson’s body looks outstanding this LBD.

She continues to be the perfect ambassador for Weight Watchers by showing off her stunning figure wearing an Alexander McQueen lace-back mini dress to the 9th Annual GEM Awards in New York City this weekend.

I love everything about this look from her glossy hair to her dress to her Neil Lane jewels to her sparkling Christian Louboutin ‘Lady Peep’ slingbacks.

She’s such an inspirational woman. I really admire her.

Beyonce Knowles In Alexander McQueen – Marquee Nightclub In The Cosmopolitan VIP Opening

Beyonce and Solange Knowles arrived on the red carpet for the grand opening of Marquee Nightclub at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas last week.

Solange sported a cropped or afro ‘do for most of 2010, but she starts 2011 long braids.

Beyonce sticks to the same old, same old blonde ‘do wearing an Alexander McQueen Spring 2011 dress.

Her Folklore floral organza print dress is an interesting mix of two looks from the runway.

I like how she paired her modified dress with a black leather belt.

I can well imagine that Bey wore black pumps, which I think may have worked perfectly well with this look.

Beyonce becomes the second person after Noomi Rapace to wear a look from Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2011 collection.

Hopefully we’ll see more stars (Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton, Anna Paquin) wearing this collection in 2011.

Victoria Beckham In Alexander McQueen – BBC Sports Personality Awards

The Beckhams are back in the UK to celebrate Christmas at home.

Last night they had a family night out at the BBC Sports Personality Awards, where David was honoured with a ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’.

It was quite an emotional occasion. Even the normally stern-faced Victoria couldn’t hide her emotions as she cried when David collected his award.

On the red carpet before the event we saw the Victoria Beckham we are used to seeing.

Pout, trademark pose and Brian Atwood Dante pumps, but on this occasion she didn’t use the red carpet to show off her own designs.

As Victoria doesn’t design coats she wore a luxe camel Alexander McQueen wool-crepe strong-shouldered coat.

The coat shows that VB can do pared-down chic whilst still giving us a strong style statement.

She looked ultra elegant despite the sub-zero temperatures.

Inside the venue a tearful Victoria revealed a gorgeous black one-shouldered dress from her own collection.

Naomi Campbell In Alexander McQueen – 2010 British Fashion Awards

Best Tribute Award
At the 2010 British Fashion Awards in London tonight Naomi Campbell was honoured for her influence and contribution to the fashion industry over the past 25 years.

The British Fashion Council decided to dedicate a posthumous ‘Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design’ award to Alexander McQueen, so it was fitting that the supermodel choose to wear a custom made gown by the designer.

She arrived wearing a Dennis Basso shrug, but inside the venue she removed it to reveal the stunning embellished details on her strapless velvet gown with a sheer skirt.

No one does drama like Naomi.

Salma Hayek For V Spain

Salma Hayek graces the cover of V Spain issue #7.

I’m sure the boys in the typography department had a fun filled day placing the V on the cover of this particularly issue.

Salma continues to try to force us to believe that she’s the best brand ambassador for Alexander McQueen by wearing a gold Alexander McQueen Resort 2011 bolero on the cover of this issue which was shot by Karl Lagerfeld.

I love the styling on this heavily photoshopped picture, but I’m so tired of seeing the twins.

Inside the issue Salma also wears the YSL Resort 2011 jumpsuit which she wore to the Yves Saint Laurent Spring 2011 presentation.

Once again this picture is all about the twins.
