Christopher Kane Spring 2012

Christopher Kane’s Spring 2012 collection continued the 60s revival we have witnessed this Fashion fortnight.

Boxy jackets, sweet shift dresses, tailored shorts, midi-skirts, cigarette pants, house coats and mini-skirts were presented, but the real story was the floral prints.

We saw sky-blue floral brocade prints, multi-coloured floral prints and iridescent floral prints.

The red-carpet-ready looks included a collection of crystal-embellished dresses.

Crystals also appeared on tops, shorts and jeans. I expect to see these worn by the editors next season.

The models would’ve been relieved to wear poolside rubber-soled sandals and sporty plimsolls; some were even decorated with crystals.

Anthony Turner gave the models purposely messy updos, whilst Chantecaille applied the right amount of blusher to give each of them a rosy glow.

Front Row: Kanye West (who I was seated behind), Erin O’Connor, Anna Wintour, Jade Parfitt, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Eliza Doolittle, and Samantha Cameron

Favourites: Sky blue floral skirt and white top and satin dress with crystal embellishements

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Alexa Chung, Anna Paquin, Leighton Meester, Kate Bosworth, Elizabeth Olsen, Emily Browning, Andrea Riseborough, Freida Pinto, Chloe Moretz, Olivia Palermo, Kirsten Dunst, Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Jessica Alba, Ashley Olsen, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Yasmin Le Bon and Saoirse Ronan

Kate Bosworth In Christopher Kane – “Chelsea Lately”

Kate Bosworth was photographed leaving a taping of “Chelsea Lately” in Santa Monica, California on Wednesday.

The actress chose a summery coral Christopher Kane Resort 2012 ensemble.

Her sleeveless trapeze top features a ruched neckline and flares out around the waist. It was paired with a matching fitted skirt.

Kate accessorized with black strappy Chloe heels with a chain link in the centre, which I think was the wrong choice for such a bright dress.

I wish she would have chosen something more feminine too to complement the pretty vibe of her ensemble.

Soft, tousled hair and pink lips completed her look.

Beth Ditto In Christopher Kane – MAC Cosmetics Fashion’s Night Out

Beth Ditto performed at the M.A.C. store for Fashion’s Night Out in New York City last night in a brilliant colourful ensemble.

The singer chose a sheer rainbow-hued Christopher Kane Resort 2012 lace dress with black cuffs and a black collar.

Beth complemented the black elements of her dress with her Cleopatra-style jet black hair.

She accessorized with bright blue peep-toe slingback heels and added bold pink lips.

Sidewalk Style: Anne Hathaway In Christopher Kane

Following her dazzling turn on the red carpet last night for the “One Day” London Premiere wearing Alexander McQueen, Anne Hathaway sported another British designer today.

The actress appears to be having a ‘Madonna Ritchie’ moment (i.e. loving all things British) as she wore a Christopher Kane Fall 2011 sweater.

Her navy and green v-neck crocheted cashmere sweater was teamed with some unfortunate, but no doubt comfortable, black cargo pants.

Oversized shades, a silver charm bracelet and black Christian Louboutin silver studded loafers completed her off-duty look.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Chloe Moretz In Christopher Kane & Rihanna In Antonio Berardi

A reader said that I failed when it came to the BDOTW poll this week.

What that person failed to realize is that August is a quiet month. It always has been for red carpet fashion as celebs are either on vacation or filming their next blockbuster.

Granted there were slim pickings this week, but you chose Chloe Moretz in Christopher Kane as your favourite.

The 14 year old continues to pull off some of the most sophisticated designs with uncanny grace and confidence.

I went for Rihanna in Antonio Berardi.

With so many black and white looks on the red carpet this week, I was relieved to see someone wear some colour on Friday.

It was the perfect end to a quiet week.

Chloe Moretz In Christopher Kane – Empire Big Screen Event

Chloe Moretz attended the Empire Big Screen Event at the O2 Arena in London this weekend.

The American teen actress wore a beautiful Christopher Kane Resort 2012 ensemble.

Her look consisted of a sequin rainbow top and cut away silk rainbow skirt.

Chloe wore her skirt over the top which gave her waist more definition.

It’s still so hard to believe Chloe is only 14 as taking full ownership of what she is wearing in such a graceful mature manner.

Black strappy sandals and an updo with a few pieces framing her face completed her look.
