Janet Jackson In Haider Ackermann – 2011 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Previously, Janet Jackson has failed to pull off Haider Ackermann, but tonight at the 2011 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala she gets a pass.

The singer’s Haider Ackermann ensemble incorporates the teal and purple colours from the Fall 2011 collection.

I’m glad she didn’t opt for anything too complicated because she’s doesn’t always carry them so well with her petite frame.

Her colour-block look is accented with a blue ribbon around the waist.

Do you think she got is right on this occasion?

Tilda Swinton In Haider Ackermann – 2011 Cannes Film Festival “We Need To Talk About Kevin” Premiere

Tilda Swinton wore Haider Ackermann at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival “We Need To Talk About Kevin” Premiere tonight.

I’m sure like me many of you expected Tilda to opt for this designer, as she’s been known to work closely with Haider Ackermann on many occasions.

Her Fall 2011 custom-made dress is inspired by a similar look on the runway.

The navy satin runway pants have become a sleek asymmetrical high-waist skirt with pockets and a side split.

Tilda’s added a Haider Ackermann scarf collar silk shantung top to complete the look.

Some of you complained about Tilda’s lack of make-up at the photocall, but she added some pink lippie on this occasion.

An Olympia Le-Tan clutch and some unfortunate Jil Sander pumps completed her look.

2011 Hong Kong Film Awards

I have been waiting for a look from the Stéphane Rolland Spring 2011 Couture collection to be showcased on the red carpet ever since I attended the show back in January.

My wait is finally over as Miriam Yeung attended the 2011 Hong Kong Film Awards last night wearing an amazing sculptural gown.

I surprised at how this gown with a gold detail on the hip doesn’t appear to overwhelm her. She totally owns it and looks very comfortable.

Whilst I’m happy to see this look on the red carpet, I’m sad that this now mean there’s less chance of Cate or Tilda wearing it.

Thankfully there are many more amazing pieces from this collection for them to choose from.Read More…

Tilda Swinton In Haider Ackermann – 2011 BAFTA Awards

Joint Best Dressed Award
Tilda Swinton was my second favourite on the red carpet at the 2011 BAFTA Awards in London tonight.

The British actress wore a Haider Ackermann black suit with cream satin lapels on her waistcoat.

Her black suit was is worn with great style and poise.

I don’t know many other stars who can get me drooling over a black suit on the red carpet, but Tilda does.

Tilda Swinton In Haider Ackermann – “I Am Love” Reception

Tilda Swinton towers over Rosanna Arquette at the “I Am Love” Reception hosted by Magnolia Pictures and Quentin Tarantino at Sunset Tower in West Hollywood yesterday.

It has been forever since we last saw the gazelle-like Tilda on the red carpet.

She opted to wear a black Haider Ackermann Spring 2010 ensemble with a twisted neckline and cold shoulders.

She modified the look slightly so the keyhole detail was on her shoulder.

Black satin pumps completed her look.

The fact that Tilda is in LA I’m hopeful that she may walk the red carpet at the Golden Globes.

Janet Jackson In Haider Ackermann – “For Colored Girls” New York Premiere

I’m sure I am not the only one who had bookmarked this Haider Ackermann Spring 2011 look for Tilda Swinton.

Instead Janet Jackson wore it last night for the New York Premiere of “For Colored Girls”.

It took me a while to find good picture of Janet, because she looked really bad in all of them, so I had to concede it wasn’t the pictures but Janet herself that was making this look so bad.

The pants are too long, the leather belt sits too high and doesn’t look good over the jacket and why oh why is she wearing a chiffon train with this look?

For an effortless look she totally over complicated it.

I’m heartbroken.

“Ondine” New York Premiere – Alicja Bachleda In Haider Ackermann

Alicja Bachleda is probably known as Colin Farrell’s baby mother, but she’s an actress and a singer in her own right.

Last night she looked breath-taking as she walked the red carpet at Tribeca Film Festival for screening of “Ondine”.

Haider Ackermann always blows me away on the red carpet.

We don’t see his work that often, but it’s always a pleasurable experience because of the fine details and the way his pieces elegantly wrap around a the woman’s body.

Alicja striped down this look, by wearing just the Haider Ackermann Spring 2010 lilac wrap pocketed suede vest, with the lilac Haider Ackermann skirt.

The result is spectacular.

Not many of us are fond of mullet skirts or dresses, but I think she pulls this look off effortlessly.

The pink top under her vest is the only thing to slightly bother me, but I love her hair pulled back with this look.
