Heidi Klum In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 2012 American Music Awards

Following Heidi Klum’s failure to set our fashion senses alight at the 2012 MTV EMAs, she gave it another go at the 2012 American Music Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in LA on Sunday evening.

She donned a look from Alexandre Vauthier’s Fall 2012 Couture collection.

The TV host wore a gold guipure lace mini dress with a side slit, high neckline, bold shoulders and sheer panels.

Maybe I still have a hangover from Heidi’s fashion failures last week, because I can’t bring myself to get excited about this look.

I don’t know if it’s a case of been-there-and-done-that with Heidi, or that the designer presented 26 looks from this collection and celebs are pretty much wearing the same guipure lace pieces.

Lorraine Schwartz jewels and gold guipure lace Christian Louboutin pumps to match her dress completed her look.

Rita Ora In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 2012 MTV EMAs Press Room

Rita Ora completed a hat-trick of red looks when she took to the press room at the 2012 MTV EMAs on Sunday in Frankfurt, Germany.

On this occasion she wore an Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2012 Couture guipure suit with a peplum detail and plunging neckline, which she styled with black open-toe Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.

Does this look feel familiar?

That’s because she wore the same look in gold to the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards in the US back in September.

Heidi Klum In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 2012 Emmy Awards

Heidi Klum looked very pretty at the 2012 Emmy Awards held in Hollywood, California, on Sunday evening.

I do like her light blue Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2012 Couture gown, but the overall look and styling feels a tad one note.

To be honest, I’m more than a tad bored.

The Lorraine Schwartz earrings match the dress, which matches the Lorraine Schwartz ring, which matches the shoes and no doubt the clutch.

Rita Ora In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – MTV Music Video Awards After-Party

Rita Ora went for gold for the MTV Music Video Awards after-party in Los Angeles yesterday.

The British singer caused quite a stir at the event in this plunging trouser suit from Alexandre Vauthier’s Fall 2012 couture collection.

Rita has been on a style roller coaster this week, and not all of her looks have been that successful. There’s something about this gold ensemble, however, that seems to work.

Perhaps it’s because she’s matched it with the same Christian Louboutin shoes as worn by the model on the runway?

Rita’s definitely stayed away from too many accessories, which is a good thing, and the vintage-inspired hair and make-up suit her.

What do you think?

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.
