Derek Lam Fall 2011

Derek Lam is always a highlight on my Fashion Week calendar.

The designers’ Fall 2011 collection consisted of lots of layering and incredible tailoring.

The laid back collection showcased comfortable pieces and cool coats with the collar popped.

I loved the mix of menswear inspired pieces which had a lot of attitude and the beautiful flowy gowns which made up the finale.

There was something for every type of girl. Whether you are a hipster or a girlie girl.

Lam presented Pea coats which we’ve seen a lot of this fashion week. They were paired with red and black wool stretch flannel pants.

We also saw printed textured pants, trench coats, an electric blue jumpsuit, blouses with neck ties and a hot red leather jacket.

Derek Lam knows what women want and that was evident in this amazing collection.

Favourites: mustard and grey halter dress and fawn silver fox coat

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Kate Bosworth, Camilla Belle, Jennifer Aniston, Leighton Meeter, Rashida Jones, Thandie Newton, and Maria Sharapova

Camilla Belle In Derek Lam – 2010 Freedom Awards

Looks like Camilla Belle is back.

This is her 2nd red carpet appearance in as many weeks and I’m sure many more will follow.

The difference between this run and her other red carpet appearances is that she actually has a movie to promote, “Prada to Nada”.

Camille looked radiant at the 2010 Freedom Awards in LA last night wearing a Derek Lam Spring 2011 ensemble.

The look consisted of a nude embellished vest and a black skirt with a perforated detail around the hemline.

She carried a black clutch and completed her look with Brian Atwood Katie Lee patent-leather sandals.

As much as I judge her, I can’t fault her perfection on the red carpet.

She looks stunning.

Esquire House Grand Opening & Spike TV’s 2010 Scream Awards – Kate Bosworth In Derek Lam & No. 21

Kate Bosworth attended the grand opening of Esquire House LA hosted by Sienna Miller in LA this weekend.

The actress kept her look simple yet chic wearing a Derek Lam Spring 2011 look.

This look included a black top with a printed insert which was paired with a Raffia skirt.

Side swept hair, bold red lips and Sergio Rossi black suede heels completed the look.

Kate had a busy weekend because she also attended Spike TV’s Scream 2010 Awards to support her boyfriend, ‘True Blood’ actor Alexander Skarsgard.

She was spotted backstage wearing a No. 21 Fall 2010 dress.

I love her chiffon lilac frock with a ruffled detail and her casually tousled hairstyle.

I’m not at all impressed with her Nicholas Kirkwood pumps, but then I hardly am impressed with pumps on the red carpet these days.

Derek Lam Spring 2011

Derek Lam’s Spring 2011 started off with smart denims followed by clean crisp spring looks.

I thought about Celine whilst watching this presentation, because this collection had that same minimal, ultra refined elegance.

I found myself being quite blown away by this presentation.

We were presented with A-line suede skirts, poplin blouses, cashmere sweaters, ponchos, pleated skirt, chic dresses and fabulous outerwear, including a canvas trench with a swingy ruffled drape in the back.

The show ended with cool breezy maxi print dresses. It was like you could feel the sea breeze gently swirling around the tents.

Models sported voluminous 60s hair. Their make-up was clean and simple with a flash of bright red liner added to the upper eye lids.

Favourites: Printed halter maxi dress, the black sateen top paired with the embellished skirt and the khaki trench dress

Front Row: Leighton Meester, Deborah Cox and Rashida Jones

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Leighton Meeter, Rashida Jones, Thandie Newton, Robin Wright Penn, Maria Sharapova and Sarah Jessica Parker

DKMS 4th Annual Gala – Solange Knowles In Derek Lam

Beyonce’s little sister, Solange Knowles recently attended the DKMS 4th Annual Gala in New York.

The singer walked the red carpet wearing a Derek Lam Spring 2010 haltered romper.

I love the romper. It’s so very cute, but I don’t like her Casadei heels.

The problem is not that they are black.

The problem is that they look so very heavy for her Spring time look.

Tod’s Beverly Hills Boutique Opening – Jessica Alba In Derek Lam

Jessica Alba opted for a different look at the Tod’s Beverly Hills Boutique Opening in LA last night.

The actress wore her Derek Lam leather panel dress from the Fall 2010 collection.

The dress with black leather lapels was worn without the print top presented on the runway.

I do like the look as Jessica wore it, but I hate those Derek Lam clogs. They almost totally ruin the look for me.

I really don’t want these clunky clogs to catch on.

Her look was paired with a black Tod’s clutch and a selection of gold bracelets.

This a good from the ankles up.

Tod’s Beverly Hills Boutique Opening – Kate Beckinsale In Derek Lam

Kate Beckinsale arrived at the Tod’s Beverly Hills Boutique Opening in LA last night showing off her amazingly toned body.

The British actress wore a purple Derek Lam draped dress from the Spring 2010 collection.

I love that she decided to wear this dress a cowl neck dress instead of how it was presented on the runway.

The dress features a corseted waist and an asymmetrical hem which she paired with a black Tod’s clutch, Sergio Rossi slingbacks and Amrapali jewels.

10 out of 10 for making it her own.
