Best Dressed Of The Week – Camilla Belle in Marchesa & Rihanna in Alexandre Vauthier

I think Camilla Belle’s Marchesa feathered confection was equally loved and hated.

But the love shone through to crown her Best Dressed this week.

If we were talking about the week she definitely deserved recognition for stepping out on the red carpet looking fab at each event.

This won’t be a popular choice as only 5% of you agreed, but I LOVED Rihanna in her Alexandre Vauthier jumpsuit.

Sexy, edgy, daring and on top of that she totally OWNED the look.

I dare anyone else to wear this jumpsuit with this much fabulousity.

Runway To 2010 Echo Awards – Rihanna In Alexandre Vauthier

I had heart palpitations when I saw the Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2010 Couture collection as its has many outstanding pieces.

I was worried we wouldn’t get to see them worn much on the red carpet, but Rihanna wears her second piece from that collection.

I LOVE this teal Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2010 Couture jumpsuit with a plunging neckline, strong shoulders and batwings.

The colour is divine on Rihanna who knows how to work this look.

I’m even liking the bowl cut which leads me to believe that my Rihanna girl crush is almost fully restored.

Her look is paired with pale pink Louboutin pigalle’s, diamond stud earrings and a gold ring.

I think this is a well worthy BDOTW contender.

It may not be your cup of tea, but you gotta admit she rockin’ the hell out of this look.

Runway To ‘Rated R’ Seoul Press Conference – Rihanna In Alexandre Vauthier Couture & Isaac Mizrahi

Rihanna is currently in Seoul, South Korea to promote her album latest album ‘Rated R’.

She arrived at a press conference held at Intercontinental Hotel wearing an Alexandre Vauthier black jacket from the recent Spring 2010 Couture presentation, which she paired with a peachy Isaac Mizrahi Spring 2010 skirt.

I love the Alexandre Vauthier jacket. Its very Rihanna with the peeked shoulders making a strong style statement.

The Isaac Mizrahi skirt with the gathered detail is heavenly.

Sadly I only like the pieces separately. Together they don’t work for me.

I understand the she wanted to stay true to her edgier style, whilst giving her fans a look at her soft feminine side, but she should have picked a lane and stayed in it.

This is too confusing.

Her look was paired with Giuseppe Zanotti ankle boots.

With Rihanna there are no grey areas, so do you love it or hate it?

Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2010 Couture

Dior’s Spring 2010 Couture collection had many references, but Alexandre Vauthier’s Spring 2010 Couture collection had one – Power dressing.

The collection included bold peaked shoulders, most with plunging necklines and some with asymmetrical necklines.

The colour palette consisted of bold blood reds, electric blues, goblin greens and muted black. One black plunging dress was paired with a large sequined belt for a sexier vibe.

The sequined pieces really stood out, even the black jumpsuit.

But it’s the red dress I would wish to see on the red carpet.

Rihanna is a huge fan of Alexandre Vauthier, so lets hope she brings some of these pieces to the red carpet at some point.

The Grammy’s are on Sunday night. Perfect showcase for both the red carpet and that blue sequin leotard would make a great stage costume.

Breath-taking collection.

Runway To ‘Friday Night with Jonathan Ross’ – Rihanna In Alexandre Vauthier Couture

Rihanna totally redeems herself after wearing those hideous Jean Paul Gaultier dungarees recently.

Rihanna is like a fashion roller-coaster.

One minute she’s up, the next she’s down, and a some points you just want to be sick.

Here she is on the up at yesterday’s taping of ‘Friday Night with Jonathan Ross’ in London.

I absolutely LOVE this Alexandre Vauthier Couture Fall 2009 dress on Rihanna.

See RiRi you can look edgy and sophisticated at the same time without looking like a hobo.

The exquiste nude sequin gown looks as stunning on Rihanna as it does on the model.

In fact I think I like it better on Rihanna, as the dress drapes better with the thinner white belt.

Rihanna has worn these white ankle strap heels on several occasion, and now we know where she got them from as they were presented on the runway during Vauthier’s Fall 2009 Couture show.

Rihanna’s Stéphane Rolland look was one of my favourites this year, but this look trumps that one and is a worthy BDOTW contender.

This is now the second time Rihanna has worn a look from this talented designer.

Jonathan Ross is very funny, so I can’t wait to see this interview which airs tonight at 1035pm on BBC1, or you can watch the interview on BBC iPlayer tomorrow.

Social Events Of The Week

Out & About, LA

Prior to her party in London this week, Victoria Beckham was spotted out in LA with her boys wearing a very cute colourful mini Julian J Smith Spring 2010 dress with her curly bob, and blue suede YSL Trib Two heels.

Julian J Smith is a British designer who presented his first collection during London Fashion Week back in September, now he has one of the most photographed women in the world wearing his designs.

What a huge honour for him.

Avatar Photo Call, Berlin

Actresses Sigourney Weaver and Zoe Saldana attend a photocall to promote their film ‘Avatar’ Berlin.

Sigourney looked sophisticated wearing a metallic cardigan paired with wide-legged pants, whilst Zoe opted to show off her stunning legs.

Zoe wore one of the cutest pieces from Andrew GN’s Spring 2010 collection.

I love the crocheted top with a ruffled collar and black patent bow accent which complements her mini black satin skirt.

The look is teamed with a pair of beige Serigo Rossi platform heels.

BDOTW contender.

VEVO Launches Premiere Destination for Premium Music Video, New York

Lady GaGa donned an ethereal Valentino Spring 2010 dove grey strapless gown which looks like mounds of material wrapped around her tiny frame.

I love the dress, but she wears it too low down, and it gives her a look of having droopy boobs.

Even though many are over the bold shoulder trend Rihanna is still championing the look.

It seems like she just can’t get enough of spikey pieces either.

First rings, then dresses, now shoes which she pairs with her Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2009 Couture look which included a black jumpsuit, gold belt and cropped jacket look.

Ciara is such a lovely girl, with an amazing figure.

Her gold dress is outstanding, as it hugs that super toned body I’m so jealous of.

What I’m not jealous of are those red Louboutin thigh high heels.  They are cringe-worthy to say the least.

“The Lovely Bones” LA Premiere

Rachel Weisz looked so incredibly pretty wearing a baby blue strapless heavenly Valentino dress with silver platforms and a matching clutch.

Some might of opted for a neutral lip colour, but Rachel was bold enough to wear this floaty dress with bright red lips.
