The London 2012 Closing Ceremony, which took place at the Olympic Stadium yesterday evening, was not only about British culture and music; it was also about fashion.

A selection of our finest and most iconic supermodels took to the stage showcasing British Fashion to its largest-ever global audience.

They were all dressed in pure gold to celebrate Team GB’s 29-gold-medals haul.

From left to right we have Lily Cole wearing an Erdem gold embroidered and lace cocktail dress with gold Charlotte Olympia ankle-strap pumps.

Stella Tennant rocked a Christopher Kane metal mesh and Swarovski crystal pant suit with a rockstar spiked hairdo. One of my favourites of the night.

Karen Elson was more serene wearing a Burberry gold-lace evening dress with a slit which revealed her Jimmy Choo gold ‘Private’ sandals. Read More…

Jessica Ennis In Alexander McQueen – OMEGA House Presents ‘Athletics Night’ Party

Olympic gold medal-winning Heptathlete Jessica Ennis attended ‘Athletics Night’ presented by Omega House in London yesterday evening.

The Face of the 2012 London Olympic Games continues her run of wearing British designers. On this occasion, she wore a pretty Alexander McQueen Spring 2012 dress.

Her pretty coral jersey skater-skirt dress was styled with simple accessories including a black belt, black pumps and an Omega timepiece.

With her honey locks swept into a side bun she completed her look with small gold hooped earrings a pink lip colour.

This is the second time we have seen this dress on the red carpet, both times with black accessories. I would love to see this dress styled another way.

How would you style this look?

You can buy Jessica’s Alexander McQueen dress from Matches Fashion US, Matches Fashion International, farfetch.com US and farfetch.com

Rachel Bilson In Malene Birger & Alexander McQueen – CW, CBS And Showtime 2012 Summer TCA Party

Rachel Bilson also attended the CW, CBS And Showtime 2012 Summer TCA Party, held at the Beverly Hills Hotel yesterday evening.

The ‘Hart of Dixie’ actress worked an adorable semi-casual combo which included a bow-accented Malene Birger sleeveless blouse and Alexander McQueen tailored peplum pants.

The black-and-nude colour palette is very chic, but I’m not so enamoured with her side bun, which reminds me of a balding man’s comb-over.

Off-white Shoemint pumps and a pretty pink lip colour completed her look.

Kelly Brook In Alexander McQueen – Magnum’s London Pop-Up Store Launch

Kelly Brook was at the Westfield Stratford shopping centre yesterday evening to launch Magnum ice cream’s first pop-up store.

The TV presenter/model looked divine wearing an Alexander McQueen flared felt-wool dress.

Yes, it is totally ironic that Kelly is promoting ice cream wearing a bordeaux and eggplant trimmed Pre-Fall 2012 dress. But that’s the British summer for you.

Even if it was a glorious sunny summer’s evening, this colour combo is working wonders for Kelly’s complexion, especially since she’s darkened her hair colour.

I usually find Kelly’s style unappealing, but I have to say this is one of her best looks so far this year.

The styling which includes an Alexander McQueen leather waist belt and YSL ‘Tribute’ sandals totally help sell this look to me.

You can buy Kelly’s dress in the reverse colour way, as presented in the lookbook, from Net-A-Porter International.
Kelly’s Alexander McQueen leather waist belt is available from Net-A-Porter.com.
Her YSL ‘Tribute’s sandals are available from Net-A-Porter.com, Luisa via Roma and Neiman Marcus.

Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2012 Ad Campaign

I have been eagerly awaiting the Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 ad campaign which was finally released yesterday.

David Sims captured Finnish model Suvi Kopoen sporting the same platinum blonde coif that the models showcased when they took to the runway back in March.

Between the futuristic origami set design, the metallic visor, the exaggerated shapes and heel-less shoes, Suvi looks like a beautiful creature from outer space.

Check out the full campaign over at AlexanderMcQueen.com.
