Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

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.

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 Fox Read more…

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.

Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2011 Couture collection showed that the designer is still in love with bold shoulders.

I expected to see super sexy glamorous looks, which were bold and daring.

I wasn’t disappointed.

We saw plenty of plunging necklines, double thigh-high splits and floor-length dresses made of lurex which clung to the body.

I don’t recall Alexandre presenting prints before, but this collection had a few looks with bold graphic prints which were one of the few every day wearable looks from this collection along with a striking taupe satin jumpsuit.

The rest were for evenings out or working the red carpet like the gold fringe beaded Swarovski elements dress with the neckline plunging to the models navel, or the black figure-hugging dress with the sheer panels.

Key accessories: Jewelry by Emmanuel Aubry, Christian Louboutin heels, eyewear and clutches by Alexandre Vauthier

Favourites: Gold beaded dress and white jumpsuit with plunging neckline and gold belt

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Rihanna and Angelina Jolie

Some of you have express that you are over bold shoulders, well Alexandre Vauthier isn’t and neither am I.

The shoulders weren’t as voluminous as the pieces in the Spring 2010 Couture collection, but they were very well defined especially by the moon-shaped piece worn by one model.

If ‘Wonder Women’ wore Couture, she’d wear this collection.

It was full of strong powerful statement pieces, which were dynamic, strong, confident, sexy and feminine all at the same time, plus it has her trademark gold touches.

The collection was dominated by black and white looks, but we also got pops of purple.

My favourite piece was the first black and white sleeve dress worn with long black gloves. You’ve got to wiggle in this dress.

I also loved the big bear sleeves on the white coat.

The designer favourited by Rihanna and Monica presented many pieces with very daring necklines.

How low did he go? To the belly button.

Jessica Stam closed the show wearing a gold sequin dress with spikey shoulders.

The models stormed the runway in black and gold Christian Louboutin spiked heels.
