The London 2012 Closing Ceremony, which took place at the Olympic Stadium yesterday evening, was not only about British culture and music; it was also about fashion.

A selection of our finest and most iconic supermodels took to the stage showcasing British Fashion to its largest-ever global audience.

They were all dressed in pure gold to celebrate Team GB’s 29-gold-medals haul.

From left to right we have Lily Cole wearing an Erdem gold embroidered and lace cocktail dress with gold Charlotte Olympia ankle-strap pumps.

Stella Tennant rocked a Christopher Kane metal mesh and Swarovski crystal pant suit with a rockstar spiked hairdo. One of my favourites of the night.

Karen Elson was more serene wearing a Burberry gold-lace evening dress with a slit which revealed her Jimmy Choo gold ‘Private’ sandals. Read More…


Rosamund Pike In Christopher Kane – The Stone Roses Adidas Secret Gig

It’s not often we see Rosamund Pike sporting such a laidback look, but it was event appropriate for the Stone Roses Adidas secret gig held at Adidas Underground in London on Monday night.

Sporting a simple white tee and black pants, the British actress added an eye-catching Christopher Kane animal print biker jacket to her look.

Opting for ‘just-got-out-of-the-shower’ hair, Rosamund completed the look with black leather booties and a gold bracelet.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Christopher Kane – 2012 Pre-Olympics Reception

Queen Elizabeth hosted a pre-Olympics reception at Buckingham Palace on Friday for Heads of State and Government prior to the opening ceremony.

I was excited to learn via Twitter that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, wore Christopher Kane, but when I clicked through to the link, the picture I had conjured up in my head didn’t match the picture I saw in front of me.

The pale blue custom silk satin coat dress is very much what we expect from Kate – simple and event appropriate – but it‘s a world away from the edgy aesthetic which we associate with the Scottish designer Christopher Kane.

The single-breasted piece with long-sleeves, pockets and a belted waist is expertly tailored to give her a streamlined silhouette.

A nude box clutch and I’m guessing matching L.K. Bennett pumps completed her look.

I know many of you are constantly frustrated with the Duchess’ association with Alexander McQueen, so how do you feel about this look?

Should Kate stick to designers who suit her ladylike style aesthetic like Katherine Hooker and Emilia Wickstead or is she doing a good thing by introducing a wider audience to a designer like Christopher Kane?

Laura Carmichael In Christopher Kane – Veuve Clicqout Gold Cup Polo Final

Laura Carmichael, better known as Lady Edith from ‘Downton Abbey’, attended the Veuve Clicqout Gold Cup Polo Final at Cowdray Park Polo Club in Midhurst, England, on Sunday afternoon.

The actress stood out against the yellow backdrop wearing a colourful dress from the Christopher Kane Resort 2013 collection.

Her sheer hem sleeveless dress with a cinched-in waist was styled with a black printed leather motorcycle jacket which features a quilted detail on the shoulders.

It’s hard to tell if the addition of the jacket is a style statement or a necessity with the gloomy weather we are having in the UK.

An additional pop of colour came via her cobalt-blue Christopher Kane sandals.

Christopher Kane Resort 2013 On Moda Operandi

Most of the attendees for the Christian Dior Fall 2012 presentation of course wore Dior – even high-street loving Olivia Palermo.

The one person, aside from Donatella Versace and Anna Wintour, who didn’t wear Dior was Caroline Sieber.

She opted to wear a Christopher Kane pink sheer, print and pleated pelmet dress from the Resort 2013 collection, which she styled with black strappy sandals.

You will be delighted to know that you can pre-order this gorgeous dress from ModaOperandi right now.

The trunkshow for Christopher Kane, which started today, ends on July 10 so you have just 5 days to select your favourite pieces.

You have a wide selection ranging from floral-print tracksuits and black cracked leather jackets to ladylike lace, pleated and floral dresses to choose from.

The fashion-savvy Caroline picked the best piece, but my second favourite look is the printed princess dress.

Will a real princess select this look? She does favour British designers after all.

Keira Knightley In Christopher Kane – The Today Show

Promoting her latest film ‘Seeking a Friend for the End of the World,’ Keira Knightley stopped by the ‘Today’ show at the NBC studios in New York City on Monday morning.

Despite the early wake-up call, Keira was vibrant wearing a Christopher Kane Fall 2012 skirt.

The deep-red pencil skirt is heavily embroidered with black-and-white wiring and trimmed with black leather.

To offset the ornate skirt, the actress paired the bottom with a basic black shirt and black Mulberry pumps.

A delicate chain necklace acts as the only accessory with a smooth ponytail completing the look.
