Alicia Keys In Alexandre Vauthier – 2012 MTV Video Music Awards

Alicia Keys also attended the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, held last night at the Staples Center in LA.

The singer, who performed her new song ‘Girl on Fire’, wore an Alexandre Vauthier gown. You may remember that she wore a dress by the same designer to the Grammys too.

On that occasion it was a hit; this time, not so much.

Her grey silk one-sleeve dress with a thigh-high slit wasn’t my favourite look at this event. The look would’ve been much improved had it been in a different material and sleeveless.

What could’ve been a dramatic BDOTW-worthy gown just falls flat. For someone who was voted Best Dressed by Vanity Fair, she let her voters downs.

Statement earrings, Gucci sandals and Loree Rodkin rings completed her look.

The only thing I like is her brunette bob.

Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2012 Couture

Alexandre Vauthier is the man who puts the Haute into Haute Couture.

For his Fall 2012 Couture collection the designer served up a colour palette of mostly white and gold with touches of taupe in the mix, which included his signature sexy dresses, gowns and sharp jumpsuits.

If a look wasn’t gold it was dripping in gold with gold chains, gold Swarovski Elements or gold heels.

As always, he leaves very little to the imagination with hip-high slits, deep plunging necklines and ultra mini dresses with thigh-high slits, which are adored by the likes of Rihanna.

We saw many peplums for Fall 2012 ready-to-wear, so I wasn’t surprised to see this popular trend continue at Alexandre Vauthier.

One of my many favourite pieces was the gold laser-cut lace long-sleeve top with a plunging neckline paired with matching pants and matching Louboutins. I would love to see this on a brunette – Penelope Cruz, Cobie Smulders or Bérénice Marlohe would have me salivating if they hit the red carpet wearing this look.

The couturier and shoe maestro Christian Louboutin continue their working relationship as we saw an updated version of the popular ‘Bis Un Bout’ with white or gold toe-caps with a gold heel.

Boots with an asymmetrical slant and t-bar sandals also came courtesy of Monsieur Louboutin.

I believe JLo, Beyonce and Lady Gaga will be in a three-way fight for the final look; a gold bodysuit fully embellished with beads, rhinestone, glass fringes and Swarovksi Elements.

I hope Beyonce wins.

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles, Kylie Minogue, Penelope Cruz, Jessie J, Angelina Jolie, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Blake Lively and Bérénice Marlohe.

Alicia Keys In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 2012 Grammy Awards

Alicia Keys was the third celebrity, following Fergie and Katy Perry, to wear a Spring 2012 Couture look straight off the runway to the 2012 Grammy Awards this evening.

The singer donned an Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2012 Couture fitted LBD with padded shoulders.

Her look was teamed with a bold statement choker and Christian Louboutin ‘Bis Un Bout’ pumps with PVC trims, which were presented during the Alexandre Vauthier show.

That ankle strap isn’t doing her any favours and they are making her legs appear really short.

A rockabilly hairstyle completed her look.

Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2012 Couture

Alexandre Vauthier’s Spring 2012 Couture collection may have been on a softer colour palette of mint green, lavender and white, but it still projected his usual sexy, futuristic vision.

White fringed dresses, pastel chiffon gowns and draped tops over fitted pants slotted in-between LBDs with bold shoulders paired with PVC pants and black dresses with cut-out and thigh-high splits.

At first I was shocked that the models had protruding hip bones, but by the third look I realised that the hips had been deliberately exaggerated.

Fur accents in pastel colours to match the dresses adorned the models’ shoulders, whilst neckpieces encrusted with Swarovski Elements provided the perfect juxtaposition of soft fabrics.

Each model wore Christian Louboutin PVC heels with different colour top-caps.

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles, Jessie J, Angelina Jolie, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Blake Lively and Megan Fox

Lady GaGa In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – Annie Leibovitz Photoshoot

Lady GaGa was spotted in another incredible look whilst shooting an editorial with Annie Leibovitz in Central Park on Monday.

This time GaGa was snapped in an Alexandre Vauthier couture dress, her second look from the designers’ Fall 2011 Couture collection.

Her fitted red dress with a central split and huge balloon sleeves was paired with ruby accessories including more towering platforms, leather gloves and red and black bug-eye sunglasses.

The singer completed her look with a top bun and scarlet lipstick.

It’s another typical show-stopping ensemble on GaGa and I think her platforms work much better with this look, rather than the red suit.

I am obsessed with those killer sunglasses.

Lady GaGa In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – Atom Factory VMA Dinner

Sarah Jessica Parker wasn’t the only one wearing a red Fall 2011 Couture look this weekend.

Lady GaGa hosted the Atom Factory VMA Dinner in LA on Friday night wearing a red Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2011 Couture jumpsuit with a plunging neckline.

The eccentric singer opted to wear her ensemble with matching sky-high platforms.

I like the look, sans platforms, put I would’ve preferred the ruby necklace as worn by the model over GaGa’s silver statement.

GaGa clearly wanted to make her greater impact with her choice.

A supersized updo, Emmanuelle Khanh sunglasses and a red satin Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2011 Couture clutch complete her look.

Stay tuned for the MTV VMA coverage.

Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2011 Couture

The venue for the Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2011 presentation was stiflingly hot. It was turned up several notches when the first model took to the runway.

Alexandre presented 29 looks in varying shades of red including blood red, crimson red, scarlet red, fire-engine red, candy apple red, maroon and Burgundy.

The homage to M. Valentino showcased red as desire and sensuality signalling inner strength.

Model stormed the runway with perfect red pouts whilst wearing red Louboutin booties and pigalle pumps.

Their range of sexy looks included LRD (little red dresses), backless jumpsuits, billowing gowns with plunging necklines and double thigh-high splits, velvet tuxedos, luxe fur coats, chiffon halters, uber tight pants and seductive pencil dresses.

The designer, who is obsessed with accentuating the shoulders, added oversized butterfly wings, sculptural batwing sleeves and puffy oversized sleeves to cocktail dresses.

One long sleeved gown looked like a ball of flame as it glimmered with beaded details on the runway.

Only one gown of the 30 looks wasn’t red. That was the finale gown below.

The nude long sleeved gown had the most intricate Swarovski elements embroidered into the bold shoulders which also cascaded down onto the front and back of the gown.

Favourites: Finale gown, Ball of Flame gown and one-shoulder sequin jumpsuit with draped chiffon detail

Key accessories: Christian Louboutin shoes, Alexandre Vauthier clutches and ruby jewels

Who I Would Like To See Wearing This Collection: Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles, Angelina Jolie, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Cameron Diaz, Dita von Teese, Blake Lively and Megan FoxRead More…

Beyonce Knowles In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 2011 Glastonbury Festival

Beyonce Knowles was the headline act a Glastonbury Festival yesterday.

She’s one of the few women to headline the festival in the past 40 years.

The American superstar turned on the fireworks (literally) as she addressed the 50,000 strong crowd with, “Glastonbury, are you ready?” before shaking her booty to the opening number “Crazy In Love.”

Her 90-minute set included a string of her biggest hits, including “Single Ladies”, “Halo”, “Naughty Girl”, “If I Was A Boy” and “Baby Boy”, for which she was joined on stage by Bristolian artist Tricky.

She also performed a medley of Destiny’s Child songs, as well as paying tribute to several other artists, with her own versions of Alanis Morissette’s “You Oughta Know”, the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams” was mashed with “Beautiful Nightmare” and she also performed Kings of Leon’s “Sex On Fire.”

The singer appeared to be truly humbled by the experience, saying on many occasion that she was so happy to be there.

Bey left little to the imagination wearing an Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2010 mini dress.

Her gold long sleeve sequined dress (worn more like a top) was embellished with Swarovski crystals and teamed with a pair of hot pants, black sparkling booties and a gold buckle belt.

Despite the pleas on Twitter Beyonce didn’t change into another look.

Her cheering squad included hubby Jay-Z and BFF Gwyneth Paltrow.
