Max Azria Opens The First BCBG Max Azria Store In The UK

Max Azria opened the doors to the first London BCBG store in London last night with a party attracting London society and girls about town.

Guests included Robert Hanson & Masha Markova, Goga Ashkenazi, Tamara & Giorgio Veroni, Tallulah Ormsby Gore, Francesca Versace, Ben Grimes, Jameela Jamil, Olivia Inge, Marissa Montgomery, Petra Ecclestone, Henry Conway, Jade McSorley (Britain’s Next Top Model Winner).

It was a great party with music played by celebrity DJ Ben Grimes, as we washed down the delicious profiteroles and other canapés with champagne.

The brand is not as well known to us here in the UK, but no doubt it will develop a huge fan base especially considering it’s central location and reasonable price points.

The store is located at 23-25 Kings Road, London, SW3.  Sloane Square is the nearest tube.

“Oceans” LA Premiere – Demi Lovato In BCBG Max Azria

Demi Lovato arrived on the blue carpet for Disneynature’s “Oceans” premiere in Hollywood on Saturday afternoon with new beau Joe Jonas.

Am I the only one who doesn’t buy into these romances?

I digress. The teen actress looked gorgeous wearing a BCBG Max Azria splatter paint print bustier dress from the Spring 2010 collection.

I love the colours on the skirt which also trim the black bodice on the sweetheart neckline.

The skirt on the runway has more flair as it’s asymmetrical plus it drapes from the hip, whereas Demi’s dress might have been modified slightly to be more ‘Disney friendly’.

Thankfully Demi shunned the ankle boot trend, by opting for a pair of Pierre Hardy strappy sandals.

I really love this look. It’s cute, fun, colourful and age appropriate.

41st NAACP Image Awards – Keke Palmer In BCBG Max Azria

Best Use Of Colour/Best Dressed Runner Up Award
The more I look at this picture of Keke Palmer at the 41st NAACP Image Awards, the more she makes me think I should’ve given her the Best Dressed Award instead of Mo’Nique.

I think I’m seduced by that stunning canary yellow that just pops on this red carpet.

The young actress really works this asymmetrical BCBG Max Azria gown which is divine against her skin tone.

Her hair, make-up and gold earrings perfect this look.

41st NAACP Image Awards – Anika Noni Rose In Ysa Makino, BCBG Max Azria & Naeem Khan

Hostess with the Mostest Award
Anika Noni Rose was the host of the 41st NAACP Image Awards on Friday night.

The good thing about being host, is that you get to wear many stunning looks and Anika did just that.

She started off her night walking the red carpet wearing a Ysa Makino gown.

The cream coloured sweetheart beaded mermaid gown was simply breathtaking.

You can tell she loves the gown as she poses so confidently in it.

She then changed into a canary yellow BCBG Max Azria gown with gold trim accents which showed off her assets.

A black asymmetrical gown wrapped around her figure giving her a stunning silhouette.

The blue gown was my least favourite.

My favourite was Anika’s A-Friggin-Mazing Naeem Khan gown.

Naeem designs get better and better.

Anika glows in this strapless ruby satin trumpet gown with pear-shape crystal beaded bodice.

I just want to stand near this gown and drink in it’s fabulousity.

This was easily her best look of the night.

Jessica Szohr For Teen Vogue February 2010

Jessica Szhor is the last main member of the “Gossip Girl” cast to have a solo Teen Vogue cover.

Her February 2010 cover sees her wearing one of my favourite looks from the BCBG Max Azria Spring 2010 collection. I also loved the red Versus safety-pin dress below.

The self-proclaimed “jeans and tee shirt girl” is refreshingly down-to-earth in her interview.

She opens up about her modest attitude towards fame, her relationship with Ed Westwick, and her big screen debut this April in the spring-break thriller “Piranha 3-D.”

Click here for information on the February cover and behind the scenes footage from the shoot.

On her Gossip Girl co-stars and double-dating with them: “I’ve heard horror stories form other actors about egos, people who don’t get along, but we’re all friends. There are people from this job who will be in my life for a very, very long time… Sometimes we double-date with Penn [Badgley] and Blake [Lively], or Leighton [Meester] and Sebastian [Stan]. We all hang out.”

“Couples Retreat” Germany Promotional Tour

Premiere

Kristen Bell glowed wearing a coral BCBG Max Azria Spring 2010 mini dress straight off the runway.

The dress has a sheer asymmetrical panel and sheer panels in the cut-outs on the side of the dress, so it gives the illusion of this dress being strapless.

Kristen is a cute, young and fun so this dress suits both her style and personality.

Jimmy Choo heels and a Celestina clutch complete her look.

I’m really loving Malin Ackerman’s new hairstyle, it makes her look so sophisticated and chic.

A chic new ‘do needs a beautiful dress and she wore exactly that.

Her strapless Marchesa strapless floral brocade dress brings out her golden complexion.

I love the print, the ruffled bodice, and her pink suede Sergio Rossi heels which perfectly complement the dress.

We’ve already seen this dress worn by the designer Georgina Chapman.

Photocall

For her photocall look Kristen wore a lilac Rebecca Taylor silk tank dress with a bejeweled bodice.

She teamed her dress with the same Choo’s she wore at the premiere.

Malin’s Nicole Miller dress has a geometric print bodice with a black high-waist skirt which makes her look about a foot taller.

The Nicole Miller dress was paired electric blue Sergio Rossi platforms.

amfAR’s Inaugural Milan Fashion Week Event

When I met Donatella Versace on Friday after her Versace Spring 2010 presentation, she told me that she likes to modified pieces from the runway to suit her body, and that’s exactly what she did here.

A tropical print mini dress with coil details at the waist, becomes a figure-hugging black dress with coil details cinching in Donatella’s already tiny waist.

I adore both looks.  She really is amazing.

Janet Jackson’s Versace Fall 2009 gown wasn’t modified but hers was electric blue to the runway’s black.

The wrap around gown was also nipped in at the waist to give Miss Janet that perfect hourglass figure.

Giovanna Battaglia does a good job of wearing this Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 blue and pink dress with a lace overlay without making it look comical.  In fact she looks better than the runway.

She paired her mini dress with a pair of LV Fall 2009 lace up boots with a pink trim and a pink clutch from the same collection.

Dita Von Teese wore a Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 hot pink satin long sleeved ruched dress with black waist belt.

This dress is quite refreshing on Dita as her dress with the exaggerated shoulders isn’t too structured.

I doubt Poppy Delevigne knows who Chiling Lin is, but she OWNED this Salvatore Ferragamo gown when she wore it to the 2009 China Huabiao Film Awards last month.

Because of that fact this stunning gown just looks OK on Poppy as I know how amazing this gown really is on the right person. Plus Chiling wore it without the sheer detail on the neckline which is not doing much for Poppy.

Anja Rubik is one of my favourite models of the moment.

The super look gorgeous in a dazzling Gucci Fall 2009 embellished sparkling mini dress.

She paired her edgy dress with studded booties to complete her rock chic look.

Gwyneth Paltrow wore the runway grey version of this Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2009 gown last year, but I much prefer Maria Sole Brivio Sforza’s bright coral version.

My only claim to fame is being the first to recognise that Angelina Jolie wore this Max Azria Spring 2009 dress back-to-front at the SAG Awards earlier this year.

WAG Kristina Liliana Matthaeus, wife of legendary footballer Lothar Matthaeus, wore the dress the right way at this event pairing her cornflower blue gown with a snake skin clutch.

I’m not quite sure when I pushed the snooze button on Rachel Bilson, but I even though she is wearing a beautiful Salvatore Ferragamo gown with a black clutch by the same designer I don’t feel wowed by any means.

This Bilson/Ferragamo collaboration just doesn’t feel natural.

I’m not crazy about the bodice on Chanel Iman’s black silk gown, but she looks very elegant and statuesque on the red carpet, but she should have got her guest to stand up stream from her so he could have looked a bit taller.

Her sparkling belt and diamanté wedges add bit of sparkle to her look.

Didn’t Linda Evangelista once say that she’d rather go naked than wear fur?
