Laura Carmichael In Christopher Kane – Watch What Happens Live

Laura Carmichael In Christopher Kane - Watch What Happens Live

Laura Carmichael opted to go dark again while making a guest appearance on ‘Watch What Happens Live’ to promote Season 4 of ‘Downton Abbey’ in New York City yesterday evening.

Turning to another British designer, she wore a black crepe-and-crackle-lace top and skirt from Christopher Kane’s Resort 2014 collection, which she paired with her can’t-live-without feather boots from the Fall 2013 collection.

The boots give the look an edge, but I would’ve loved to have seen her wear this look in red to allow the crackle lace on the skirt to stand out more.

Kelly Rowland In Christopher Kane – ‘The X Factor’ Season 3 Top 13 Live Performance Show

Kelly Rowland In Christopher Kane - 'The X Factor' Season 3 Top 13 Live Performance Show

Last night was motown night on ‘The X Factor’ Season 3 Top 13 Live Performance Show held in Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

While some of the contestants got into the spirit of the event, donning afro wigs and sparkling gowns Diana Ross would’ve been proud of, judge Kelly Rowland went in a less obvious direction.

She wore a Christopher Kane Resort 2013 pink dress with white organza-lace-and-gem appliqués.

Well, it was a dress when it was presented on the runway; however, Kelly’s look has been modified into a crop top and pencil skirt, which she styled with black Gianvito Rossi pumps.

Do you like Kelly’s modification of the look?

Would you take scissors to a $7,000 dress?

Who Wore Christopher Kane Better…Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Lopez or Katy B?

Who Wore Christopher Kane Better Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Lopez or Katy B

Who thought a brain-scan print would be so popular? I guess Christopher Kane did, as his unique colourful, printed frock has been loved by the likes of Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Lopez, Katy B and the Saturdays.

Jennifer Hudson wore her jersey dress while promoting her music on ‘Live with Kelly and Michael’ back in early September when she elevated her look with Giuseppe Zanotti sexy sandals.

Giuseppe Zanotti was also Jennifer Lopez’s choice of footwear; she opted for a bold purple hue to offset the print of her club-hopping look, worn at Hakkasan Las Vegas last month.

Katy B made it a threepeat, wearing her body-con look with Sophia Webster heels and a clutch by the same designer.

The Jennifers got their shoe choices spot on, but I’m more partial to Hudson’s leg-lengthening heels so she wins for me.

Kate Bosworth In Christopher Kane – ‘Big Sur’ New York Premiere

Kate Bosworth In Christopher Kane - 'Big Sur' New York Premiere

After promoting her new movie, ‘Big Sur’, on SiriusXM radio earlier in the day, Kate Bosworth headed to the Sunshine Landmark in New York City for the premiere with her hubby Michael Polish, who directed the movie, yesterday evening.

Opting for another British designer, the actress wore a Christopher Kane Spring 2014 drape dress featuring an embellished halter neckline and waist detail, with simple styling including black Casadei pumps, a matching black clutch and jewels from Ana Khouri which included an ear cuff.

We’re well used to Kate wearing her hair down, but on this occasion she deciding upon a chic braided updo which was not only refreshing but ensured the dazzling neckline was kept as the focus of this look, as it should be.

The Saturdays In Christopher Kane – Poppy Appeal Photocall

Poppy Appeal - Launch Photocall

Four of The Saturdays (Rochelle Humes, Vanessa White, Mollie King and Una Healy – the fifth, Frankie Sandford, is on maternity leave having given birth to a baby boy last week) attended a photocall to launch this year’s Poppy Appeal at RAF Northolt in Ruislip, England yesterday afternoon.

Often they dress like five girls pulled in off the street, but yesterday there was finally some cohesion in terms of their look as they jumped on two trends – the vinyl trend and the current love for Christopher Kane’s ‘Brain Scan’ printed pieces.

The only one who kept it 100% black was Vanessa, wearing a black dress with a mesh yoke and vinyl skirt.

Rochelle was the most covered up, wearing the most inappropriate shoes for her funky, youthful look. Mollie was, of course, wearing a crop top, with Una over-accessorizing just a tad, adding a statement necklace to her vinyl bustier, studded belt and brain-scan skirt combo.

Anyone here catch your eye for the right reasons? Or is your opinion of The Saturdays consistent: they just try too hard.

Alexa Chung In Christopher Kane - 30th Annual Fashion Group International Night Of Stars

Alexa Chung presented the ‘Fashion Star’ award to Christopher Kane during the 30th Annual Night Of Stars presented by The Fashion Group International at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City yesterday evening.

She was, of course, wearing said designer, selecting a black suit from his Spring 2014 collection which featured jewelled details accenting the waist and holding up the hem of the blazer for a refreshing twist on a classic look.

Opting for feminine footwear, she styled the look with black sandals, with copper eye makeup enhancing her green eyes, and a soft-pink lip colour and wavy tresses rounding out her look.

Lupita Nyong'o In Christopher Kane - '12 Years A Slave' London Film Festival Premiere

Lupita Nyong’o took to the red carpet on Friday evening for the ’12 Years A Slave’ premiere during the 57th BFI London Film Festival held at Odeon Leicester Square in London.

The beautiful actress wore a Christopher Kane Resort 2014 LBD with cut-outs at the waist and elastic panels. This look continues to prove that this girl has impeccable style worthy of admiration, considering her red carpet journey is still in its infancy.

Christian Louboutin ‘Paulina’ pumps, Kwiat jewels and a silver clutch completed her look.

Once again, her makeup artist enhanced her radiant skin with shimmering blue eyes and a striking red lip colour.

Is best-dressed newcomer of the year a foregone conclusion, or do you have your eye on someone else?

Katy B In Christopher Kane – 2013 MOBO Awards

Katy B In Christopher Kane - 2013 MOBO Awards

Katy B also made the trip up north to attend the 2013 MOBO Awards held at The Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland on Saturday evening.

The dub step, R&B, funky house and UK garage singer always wears a lot of colour. This look is no exception.

She wore a Christopher Kane coloured, print, body-con dress, which draws influence from the vivid display of an MRI brain scan. She styled it with a cheeky ‘Real Talk’ Sophia Webster clutch and black heels by the same designer.

Hannah Warner rings and earrings from Rachel Boston added some subtle bling to her look.

For such a vibrant dress, she perhaps didn’t need the comical clutch. What do you think?

You may remember that this dress has also been worn by Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Hudson.
