Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Who would have thought little Cheryl Cole from Newcastle would be the one start a buzz about an up and coming designer.

We saw Cheryl wearing a David Koma Fall 2009 dress on the X Factor a few weeks ago. Then Beyonce Knowles wore a dress from the same collection to the recent MTV EMAs.

Last week Rihanna wore this David Koma Spring 2010 orange and black dress when she performed the first ever concert on the Royal Caribbean’s ‘Oasis of the Seas’ cruise ship in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

These 3 ladies have taken David Koma, from David Who? to one of the most talked about designers in the UK in the space of 3 weeks.

First Cheryl Cole wore a David Koma dress on Saturday’s X Factor, now Beyonce Knowles has fallen in love with David Koma’s Fall 2009 collection.

The dress has been dubbed “the dustbin lid” dress and the “hub caps” dress, or as Marvel said it looks like a dress which was created from running into a clock shop naked.

Whatever you want to call it David Koma must be very pleased that in a space of a week 2 major stars have worn pieces from his collection.

Beyonce collected her “Best Female” Award at the lacklustre MTV EMAs last night, wearing an off-the-shoulder David Koma Fall 2009 dress with black peep-toe platforms.

I’m not surprised Beyonce wore the black wool dress with the signature tube detailing on the bodice and on the skirt, because she had to follow up with something amazing after her Gareth Pugh looks of last year.

I think she looked pretty darn fantastic in the dress, and I’m glad she support an up and coming designer.

On Saturday night on the X Factor it was Rock week.

I half expected Cheryl Cole to come out wearing a rock chick-inspired Balmain look, but she surprised everyone by wearing a black David Koma Fall 2009 mini dress with Tabitha Simmons Carla suede thigh-high boots.

Her halter neck keyhole dress had an interesting bodice detail of silver tone tubes.

The dress was an interest bold choice, and totally different from what we have seen on the Atelier Versace loving X Factor judge.

I wasn’t crazy about the look, but I didn’t hate it.

I would’ve dislike her look if her hair wasn’t pulled back. The bouffant wouldn’t have worked with this look.

Georgian born designer David Koma graduated in 2009 with distinction in MA Fashion from Central Saint Martins.

David’s pieces are sold exclusively online at Browns Fashion.

After Saturday’s show the press heavily criticized Cheryl’s David Koma dress, saying it looked like a pair of alloy wheels or dustbin lids.

This criticism may have been the reason why Cheryl toned down her look on Sunday night.

She still managed sparkle with her gorgeous smile and gold sequined Les Chiffoniers pants, which she wore with an asymmetrical black slashed top.

Slashed tops was one of the major trends of Spring 2010 fashion week.

She accessorized with a gold peep-toes, a selection of bracelets and a poppy.
