Best Dressed Of The Week – Rihanna In Alaia, Marion Cotillard In Dior Couture, Eddie Redmayne In Alexander McQueen & Frank Ocean In Dior Homme

BDOTW Womens 18 Feb

Despite an amazing week of stunning gowns, it was a two clothes-horse race for the title of Best Dressed this week.

It was a close call, but you eventually picked Rihanna’s Alaia Grammy dress as your favourite, whereas I picked the runner-up Marion Cotillard.

We may grumble at the French actress always wearing Dior, but she wears it so well.

Many wouldn’t have been able to pull off this fashion-forward look with such ease, plus I love bold colour, which brightened up a cold and rainy evening in London.

When it came to men, our choices again couldn’t be more different. You picked the handsome Eddie Redmayne in Alexander McQueen, whereas I opted for Frank Ocean in Dior Homme.

Aside from the sleek ink-blue colour, I loved that he wore such a laidback piece on a red carpet where most of the men opted for a classic tux. The Grammys is the one place to stand out and do something different so I’m glad he didn’t opt for a suit and tie.

Alicia Keys In Azzedine Alaia – 2013 Grammy Awards

Alicia Keys In Azzedine Alaia - 2013 Grammy Awards

Fresh off her performance at Super Bowl XLVII, Alicia Keys walked the red carpet at Sunday’s 2013 Grammy Awards where the singer was nominated for the producer of the year award.

With just a week post-Super Bowl, the singer chose to sport another body-con Azzedine Alaia design to the music awards.

The black formfitting dress hugged the singer’s curves in all the right places thanks to a fishtail silhouette. As if the snug fit wasn’t sexy enough, a midriff-baring crisscross bodice in a dramatic crocodile embossing amped up the sex appeal.

To complete the look, the singer styled her gown with matching black and white, snake-detailed earrings and a cocktail ring. A deep red lip and manicure topped off her glamorous style.

Naomi Campbell In Azzedine Alaïa – ‘The Face’ Series Premiere

Naomi Campbell In Azzedine Alaïa - ‘The Face’ Series Premiere

Following her appearance on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’, Naomi Campbell joined Coco Rocha at the Marquee New York yesterday evening for the series premiere of ‘The Face’.

The model wore a slinky white figure-hugging gown by one of her favourite designers, Azzedine Alaïa.

As if her dress wasn’t dazzling enough, she accessorized with a lot of bling – too much, some might say.

I think this look would’ve benefited from just the emerald ring.

White perforated platform Alaïa sandals completed her look.

You may remember that Alicia Keys wore this same dress in red on Sunday while performing at the Superbowl.

Alicia Keys In Azzedine Alaia - Super Bowl XLVII

Ahead of the Super Bowl XLVII game between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, Alicia Keys got the party started at the Superdome New Orleans, Louisana yesterday evening.

The singer gave an amazing rendition of the national anthem while giving us a glamorous look which was red carpet ready.

Alicia wore a scarlet-hued body-con Alaïa gown with a fishtail hemline, which she adorned with a gold Marina B choker.

Smoky eyes, nude lips and a slicked-back hairdo provided the finishing touches to her sultry performance look.

Marion Cotillard In Azzedine Alaïa – ‘Rust & Bone’ Luncheon

Marion Cotillard attended the ‘TimesTalk Presents an Evening with Marion Cotillard, Matt Damon and Gus Van Sant’ event at The Times Center in New York City and the ‘Rust and Bone’ luncheon yesterday.

My reaction to this look was “hallelujah, it’s Alaïa”.

The French actress has been on a non-stop Dior fashion-fest for the past few weeks, so even though this isn’t a premiere or a gala event, I’m thankful for the mini-break.

Her black-and-white short-sleeve dress, featuring an A-line pleated skirt and jagged edges, was simply styled with black pumps with a steel heel.

Are you also rejoicing, or are you still longing for Marion to wow you?

Lady Gaga In Azzedine Alaia – ‘Fame’ Fragrance Launch

Once inside Harrods for the launch of her fragrance ‘Fame’ yesterday evening, Lady Gaga changed into a more demure look.

When I say demure, I am referring to her Azzedine Alaïa dress, because demure isn’t the best word to describe her custom Brian Atwood booties.

The 9-inch black booties not only have her signature platform, they also have an asymmetrical heel and gold hardware which replicates the talons on the bottle of her new fragrance.

Brian Atwood clearly did his homework.

This is just one of several heels Brian Atwood has made especially for the singer.
