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.

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
