Runway To Kelly Hoppen’s Birthday Party – Victoria Beckham In Giles

David Beckham and Victoria Beckham attended Kelly Hoppens birthday party at her house in Notting Hill, London on Friday.

It was really good to see Victoria Beckham wearing this red knit Giles Resort 2011 mini dress with a matching cropped cardi.

I got me thinking that maybe she decided to wear black all those times when her hubby was playing in Milan as she didn’t feel the need to dress up.

This look is so very refreshing because of the colour, the length and the fact that she’s wearing another designer. A fellow British designer.

It’s great to see VB wearing her own dress collection, but when the majority of the looks are black or pencil dresses it can get a bit samey.

I wonder if Vicky B knows that Abbey Clancey – WAG to Spurs player Peter Crouch – was the model for this collection.

Vicky B wore her dress with Brian Atwood corkscrew heels and carried a red clutch.

Diane Von Furstenberg And Claridge’s Launch Party – Victoria Beckham In Giles

Last night Victoria Beckham was the star attraction at the “Diane Von Furstenberg and Claridge’s party” to celebrate Diane’s interior designs of 20 rooms and suites for the luxury London hotel.

Victoria looked great, but seriously this Giles Fall 2009 dress again.

It excusable – to some degree – to wear a dress after someone else, but Victoria must have remembered that she’d already worn this dress once/twice before.

Once in the same gunmetal grey for the LG Fashion ads, and once in a salmon colour for the Bergdorf Goodman celebration of Fashion’s Night Out back in September last year.

Like at the Bergdorf Goodman party, Victoria paired her Giles dress with thigh-high boots.

On that occasion they were Gucci, last night they were black suede Brian Atwood ‘RZ’ boots. ‘RZ’ short for Rachel Zoe who collaborated with the designer on his Fall 2010 collection.

I’m very surprised that VB wore thigh-high boots on one of London’s hottest days of the year.

The look was paired with Anita Ko rose gold and diamond spike bracelet and a Lanvin Oulala satin clutch.

I really shocked by this. When did VB become so boring and repetitive?

It’s one thing to wear the same look at Heathrow and LAX, but on the red carpet I expect more from her.

Runway To X Factor Week 7 – Cheryl Cole In Giles & Jean Pierre Braganza

My first reaction when I saw Cheryl Cole on Saturday nights X Factor was “What the hell is she wearing?”

I’m her biggest fan, but this Giles Spring 2010 dress was ridiculous.

I tried to convince myself to like it during the show telling myself the look was cute and fun, but then she stood up to give Joe Mcelderry a standing ovation, and then I saw her thorn tattoo around her thigh and it just confirmed how wrong this look was for her.

It was Wham night, so I guessed the hairstyle was supposed to resemble a young Madonna in “Desperately Seeking Susan”, but ended up looking very childish.

Her Christian Louboutin Fifre ankle boots were the icing on a very tasteless cake.

Click here to see the back of the dress.

Sunday night was much better as the X Factor judge wore a hot pink Jean Pierre Braganza Spring 2010 backless cold-shoulder dress from the designers ‘Psychadelactica’ collection.

I loved the bold colour, the tasteful plunging neckline, and the cute matching globe earrings.

The look was paired with Nicholas Kirkwood pearl embellished sandals.

Like I said it was better, but overall it she’s had much better weeks on the show.

Who Wore Giles Better? Victoria Beckham or Sara Paxton

Victoria Beckham put her best Gucci thigh-high boot forward at Bergdorf Goodman’s celebration of Fashion’s Night Out earlier this month.

The fashion designer wore a reptile print Giles Fall 2009 dress, a black head band and smoky eyes.

Some of you have said that when Sara Paxton wore the same dress to “The Beautiful Life” party, she didn’t know Victoria Beckham had worn the same dress 2 days earlier.

I would say that was impossible. Victoria’s picture was in every paper, website and blog the following day. There is no way Sara and her stylist didn’t know VB wore it.

Sara looks great in the dress, but nothing in the world will make me like those Alejandro Ingelmo woven slingbacks she’s wearing, they don’t seem to work with anything so Victoria wins this for me.

Vogue’s Fashion Week Dinner Party

This picture of Victoria Beckham and Naomi Campbell really warmed my heart.

Two of our greatest British exports are in London to celebrate all that is good and great about fashion at Vogue’s private dinner party in London last night.

Victoria was – of course – wearing a dress from her new Spring 2010 collection.

I’m glad to see she opted for one of the cute sassy fun pieces, rather then the pencil dresses, and of course I’m thrilled that it’s a colourful piece.

The designer wore her dress with grey YSL Trib Two’s.

Naomi wore a modified, more wearable version of the Alexander McQueen Resort 2010 dress which Drew Barrymore wore recently.

The Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection will never become boring to me no matter how many pieces we see on celebs.

Natalia Vodianova stood alongside the creator of her ensemble wearing a gold embroidered jacket with a black embroidered dress which Stella McCartney wore to the Prada Congo Benefit earlier this year.

Stella opted for a sleek and sexy black coat dress paired with black heels.

I love what she’s done to her hair here, normally she has it pulled back.

Maybe this is her last chance to let her hair down before her much anticipated Spring 2010 show next month.

Agyness Deyn was also in attendance wearing a House of Holland Spring 2010 half black, half beige sleeveless leather tuxedo dress.

I know Agyness is one of fashion’s greatest chameleon, but I much prefer her as a blonde.

The supermodel wore her dress with heels from the same show.

Katie Grand posed alongside Victoria Beckham wearing a pretty pink Giles Spring 2008 strapless dress.

The dress with its voluminous skirt was decorated with laser cut floral details.

I love this dress.

Of course the Brit Pack were there.

Pixie Geldof has finally taken out those god awful extension.

Daisy Lowe wore a black two-tone dress, which is the theme of the night.

But Alexa Chung looked so so cute in her Luella Spring 2010 floral print dress with a heart-shape cut-out on the bodice.

Miley…THIS is the type of cute dress you should be wearing, but in saying that I would prefer it on Selena Gomez.

So proud to write about British fashion, everyone looked fabulous at this event. They could all be up for Best Dressed Of The Week minus Pixie and Daisy.

Fashion’s Night Out

Bergdorf Goodman

The biggest stars took to the stores here in New York for the biggest Fashion night out the world has ever seen.

My chin hit the floor when I saw Victoria Beckham – not all for good reasons.

Firstly she was not wearing a black pencil dress – SHOCKER.

Secondly she wasn’t wearing black period – minus her thigh high Gucci Fall 2009 boots.

Thirdly the dress wasn’t from her collection and lastly WOW.

Where did this woman come from? This isn’t slightly tedious VB we have been looking at for the last six months.

This is someone who wanted to shake off the boring tag and shock us all.

And she did.

Unfortunately I really didn’t like make-up, and I didn’t understand why she wore such an edgy look with a headband.

On the positive side I did like her modified Giles Fall 2009 reptile print strapless dress.

I don’t like to talk about weight on my blog, it’s number no no. But I’m sure many of you will debate her weight because she is looking a tad gaunt.

Oscar de la Renta Boutique

Sarah Jessica Parker wore her ‘Fashion’s Night Out’ tee with pride pairing it with a taffeta Oscar de la Renta asymmetrical skirt, and a black belt encrusted with diamante’s on the buckle.

I love the way she styled the tee.

Anna Wintour who organised this FNO event, showed her support for the cause by wearing the campaign t-shirt like SJP.

She paired the tee with a colour co-ordinating Prada Spring 2009 pencil skirt.

Ralph Lauren Women’s Boutique

Blake Lively turned down the sex kitten for a country chic head-to-toe Ralph Lauren look, wearing a grey embellished blouse with tweed vest and tan crocodile boots.

Camilla Belle – also in head-to-toe Ralph Lauren – went for a sexy chic look wearing a luxurious Pre-Fall 2009 grey wool one-shoulder dress with a pink crocodile belt, brown sandals.

I’m not so sure I like the longer hair, but her dress is spectacular on her.

Bloomingdale’s 59th Street Store

Lindsay Lohan wore an Emanuel Ungaro Spring 2009 Caribbean blue shirt as shirtdress paired with leggings, sky high heeled ankle boots and a trilby hat.

Macy’s Herald Square

Debra Messing looked fabulous wearing a one-sleeved charcoal Michael Kors Fall 2009 herringbone origami dress.

I love the thinner belt she wore with the dress, and the sculptured shoulder.

Vogue Pop Up Boutique at Macy’s Queens

Across town Kate Hudson was also wearing a dress from the Michael Kors Fall 2009 collection.

Her espresso check strapless dress also had origami details on the bodice.

Giuseppe Zanotti Boutique

Channeling her inner Grace Jones, Rihanna looked fierce sporting a hooded Alexander Wang cowl-neck mini dress with a pair of studded sunglasses at night, and Giuseppe Zanotti boots.

Dior Boutique

Charlize Theron was of course on hand to provide the star power to the Dior Boutique.

The actress looked outstanding from her perfectly coiffed hair to her Dior heels.

I just love her silvery blue Dior strapless dress. Hollywood glamour at its very finest.

Victoria’s Secret Lexington Store

Miranda Kerr looked uber cute wearing a colour blocking Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2009 dress we have previously seen on Kate Walsh.

Who Wore Giles Better? Agyness Deyn or Katie Grand


Agyness Deyn attended the Giles Deacon Spring 2009 fashion show after-party during London Fashion Week at back in September wearing a sheer nude top, a black blazer with a yellow lining, Giles Spring 2009 silver zipped biker pants, and silver studded strappy sandals.

Katie Grand, the former editor of Pop Magazine attended the British Fashion Awards 2008 held at The Lawrence Hall in London wearing the same silver pants.

She wore her pants with a simple black sheer tee and a black boa also from the Spring 2009 show.

Agyness wins this for me.
