Emporio Armani Fall 2011

The Emporio Armani Fall 2011 collection featured all black looks with pops of colour coming from two Mongolian lamb fur jackets.

With the inspiration being, ‘The Spy’ Mr Armani presented many textures, shapes, styles and cuts to ensure that there was plenty of variety.

We saw a selection of elegance pieces including classic chic blazers, collarless blazers, jumpsuits, floor length coats, capes draped over shoulders, fitted maxi skirts and pants which had the pockets on the outside.

Mr Armani layered many looks. Silk harem pants which were layered with skirts and fitted dresses were paired with slim pants.

Key accessories included black caps which the ‘Spies’ hid behind. Kitten heels, totes, leather shin-guards paired with flats.

The cutest accessory was a dog one of the models carried which was kitted out in an Armani jacket. The pooch was a natural as he/she seemed unfazed by the bright lights and loud music.

Pops of colour came via the Mongolian lamb fur bags in purple, green and blue.

Front Row: Tina Turner and Ricky Martin

Favourites: Mongolian lamb fur jacket paired with sequined top and tapered pants and asymetrical jumpsuit

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Angelina Jolie, Megan Fox, Emily Blunt, Natalie Imbruglia, Monica Bellucci and Jodie Foster

Emporio Armani Spring 2011

Emporio Armani’s Spring 2011 collection concentrated around ten elements: glamour, geometric deco, lightness, sheath, daywear, sleekness, shades, shape, form and fancy.

We saw layering with different shapes creating new sleek forms. Stretched see-through tube skirts and leggings were teamed the short dresses, shorts and skirts.

Silk pants with cascading ruffles, shorts, sleek jackets, drawstring pants and cocktail dresses were presented.

The mostly neutral colour palette of grey and beige was presented alongside green, black and watermelon red.

Key accessories included rope, plaited and beaded chokers. A large variety of shoes ranging from wooded wedges to kitten heel booties.

The bags were just as wide ranging from large totes with wooden handles to small box bags.

Front Row: Megan Fox, Brian Austin-Green, Jada Pinkett-Smith & Willow Smith

Favourites: Watermelon dress above and the printed top paired with shorts and black leggings

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Angelina Jolie, Megan Fox, Emily Blunt, Natalie Imbruglia and Kristen Stewart

“Salt” LA Premiere – Angelina Jolie In Emporio Armani

Brangelina mania took hold of LA last night as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt walked the red carpet at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood last night for the premiere of her new movie “Salt”.

Despite Grazia and other ridiculous magazines claiming that the couple are splitting up on a weekly basis, the couple looked very much in love.

Even though she wore her favourite colour – black – she still dazzled wearing a sequined Emporio Armani Spring 2008 strapless mini dress.

I love the subtle draping on the skirt.

She doesn’t appear to be wearing a stitch of make-up, but she did add Ferragamo nude heels and an Asprey bracelet to her look.

Angelina didn’t comply to my red carpet wish to wear colour or a look from Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2010 collection, but this promotional tour isn’t over yet.

Would you consider this a BDOTW contender?

Giorgio Armani Honors “Fair Game” Cocktail Party

Before the amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala, celebs gathered on board Giorgio Armani’s boat to honor the extraordinary work of the cast and crew of the upcoming Doug Liman-directed thriller “Fair Game.”

Elizabeth Banks opted to wear a cobalt blue, jewel encrusted Giorgio Armani Spring 2010 strapless dress with a thigh-high split.

I love her fresh take on this look, as she wore the dress without the runway belt and the shimmering blue layered skirt.

Natalie Imbruglia wore a cute striped Emporio Armani Spring 2010 skirt paired with a white top.

Her nautical look was quite appropriate considering the event took place on a boat.

Emily Blunt went totally against the grain and opted for a white Dior one shoulder gown which had silver embroidery on the skirt.

When did it stop becoming a faux pa to attend a designers event wearing another designer?

Emporio Armani Fall 2010

The models strutted the runway way 2 by 2 during the Emporio Armani Fall 2010 presentation.

Sometimes they walked wearing identical looks, other times wearing complementary looks.

The show was titled “Uptown Girl” which mixed classic elegance with a fresh approach to Emporio Armani’s design aesthetic.

The colour palette – as expected – was mostly black and greys, but the stand out colour were shades of orange which really popped in the dim lit venue at Armani’s headquarters.

Model walked the runway wearing classic skirt suits, masculine pinstriped suits, capes draped over one shoulder, fur coats, floaty skirts, sculptured dresses and sexy blouses.

I loved the rose theme which was evident on a few pieces. These looks still managed to look ultra feminine despite the punky hair cuts the models had.

There wasn’t a finale walk-through like most shows, but I love how the audience claps when certain stand-out pieces take the runway.

It was a respectful sign to Mr Armani that they loved and appreciated those particular looks.

David & Victoria Beckham For Giorgio Armani Fall 2009

Today Giorgio Armani unveiled 2 stunning pictures of David and Victoria Beckham for Emporio Armani’s Fall 2009 underwear campaign.

The new advertising campaign was shot in Milan, once again by renowned fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, and will appear in fashion and lifestyle magazines and on billboards.

David’s waxy hair from his solo ads remains, but I love the picture above which very much has a sporty feel to it, although I’m not liking Victoria’s pout.  She looks very awkward.

This sexier shot sees them closer together, but yet it feels like they’re so far apart.

I would have liked to have seen more passion in this shot.

I did David take inspiration from his young son Romeo’s hairstyle for this shoot?

Because the young trend setter sported with this very same hairstyle back in January.
