Antonio Berardi Fall 2012

Celebrities favourite, Antonio Berardi, showcased his Fall 2012 collection at Senate House during London Fashion Week yesterday morning.

Known for his signature form-fitting dresses loved by the likes of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Rihanna, Zoe Saldana and Nicole Richie, the designer produced a collection we will most definitely see on the red carpet very soon.

If I had to sum up this collection in one word it would be ‘peplums’. They narrowed the waist of nearly every look.

Berardi’s daywear consisted of slick suits with sharp-shoulders, oversized coats; some with fur trims, fit-and-flare dresses – a style favoured by Kristin Davis – fitted dresses and sexy separates on a colour palette of black, silver, red, pink, teal blue and white. Some solid, others two-tone.

Berardi is one of the few designers whose day and eveningwear are loved by celebrities in equal amounts.

Models bravely navigated a flight of stairs in 6 inch Manolo Blahnik for Antonio Berardi heels before taking to the runway wearing fitted floor-length gowns.

The standout look was the fully sequined silver strapless gown followed by the ivory embroidered gown. We also saw embellished mini dresses with peplums to give them an edge.

The models were given Lisbeth-Salander-style haircuts by Orlando Pita whilst Gucci Westman kept the look clean with glossy lips and wet-look eyes.

Front Row: Olivia Palermo

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Rooney Mara, Anna Paquin, Eugenia Silva, Cameron Diaz, Kyra Sedgwick, Kate Bosworth, Olivia Wilde, Noomi Rapace, Anna Friel, Poppy Delevigne, Emily Browning, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Jessica Alba

Reese Witherspoon In Antonio Berardi – Late Show With David Letterman

Reese Witherspoon was at the Ed Sullivan Theatre on Monday evening to make a guest appearance on the ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ to promote her latest movie, ‘This Means War’.

She wore an Antonio Berardi Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

Her amazing red cap sleeve sheath dress with embroidered panels was unfortunately covered up with a black wool coat.

I disappointed that the one time she steps out of her ‘strapless-dress-wearing-box’, she goes and covers up.

Granted it’s damn cold in New York, but it’s criminal to cover up something so beautiful when she knows we want to see the dress.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Antonio Berardi – 2012 Elle Style Awards

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was one of the first stars to arrive at the 2012 Elle Style Awards held in London this evening.

The model/actress chose an angelic Antonio Berardi Spring 2012 dress.

Her floaty sheer nude dress with leather embroidery has a flowing cape detail which adds to the ethereal theme of the ensemble.

Rosie chose to stick to neutrals with nude satin Sergio Rossi ‘Profile’ sandals, rather than metallic green heels, as seen on the runway, and she opted for an Edie Parker “Lara” nude pearlescent clutch to complement the detail on her dress.

The only pop of colour came via her bright pink lippie.

As always I’m in total awe of Rosie. I can already tell she’s going to be one of the best dressed tonight.

Irene Neuwirth white gold earrings completed her look.

Madonna In Antonio Berardi – ‘MDNA’ Album Cover


Madonna is gearing up to release her 12th studio album, MDNA, which features her new single Give Me All Your Luvin’, on March 26.

Antonio Berardi, who is much loved by celebrities, has received the royal seal of approval from her Madgesty, as the singer wears a dress from his Spring 2012 collection on both covers of her album.

Her red shoulder-padded sheath dress with cut-out details and a patent leather panel was teamed with red hot lips and red leather fingerless gloves.

Just how many pairs of these gloves does this woman own?

The cover was shot by Mert and Marcus with Madonna’s long-time collaborator Arianne Phillips styling the shoot.

Zoe Saldana wore a similar blush pink dress to the Gen Art’s Fresh Faces In Fashion Event last year.

Kate Bosworth In Antonio Berardi – ‘Black Rock’ Sundance Film Festival Premiere

Kate Bosworth attended the ‘Black Rock’ premiere during the 2012 Sundance Film Festival held at Library Center Theater in Park City, Utah, this weekend.

She becomes the latest celebrity to fall in love with the Antonio Berardi Spring 2012 collection.

The Californian beauty donned a head-to-toe red look starting with the ¾-length sleeve fitted dress with leather-embroidered details.

Kate’s not known for wearing much makeup, but on this occasion she had the perfect red pout with her slick-back ponytail.

Red Casadei pumps were contrasted with a silver clutch and she of course finished her look with JewelMint pieces.

Too much red, or red hot?
