Jamie Winstone In House of Holland & Lacoste – Esquire June 2011 Launch Party

Jamie Winstone showcased a new hair colour or should I say colours, on the red carpet at the Esquire June 2011 Launch Party in London last night.

The fun-loving actress, who’s usually blonde, opted for a pink fringed do with blue streaks for a fresh summery/punk look.

She rolled up the sleeves on her white House of Holland Spring 2011 cropped top which has a purple tropical tree leaf print.

The top was paired with white pants from the Lacoste Spring 2011 collection.

I loved the sporty vibe I get from this look, but I wish she’d pulled down the pants an inch or two.

The pants could be either high-waisted or quite long on her as she’s rolled them up.

An oversized Pauric Sweeney clutch and Nicholas Kirkwood platform sandals completed her look.

I find it interesting that she contrasted the light look summery look with metallic accessories.

House Of Holland Spring 2011

With jet-lag finally catching up with me, I didn’t know how I was going to make it through House of Holland’s Spring 2011 presentation after arriving in London this morning at 7am.

As the music started and the first model took to the runway, it was jet-lag, what jet-lag?

The colour palette was bold and vivid with aquamarine, forest green, ecru, tan and lilac.

Henry Holland’s inspiration was South Beach after dark, 70s disco and Xanadu which was evident from the bold banana leaf prints and metallic pieces.

The collection was called “Something With A Fringe On Top”, so cue models swishing down the runway with fringed dresses and skirts.

Denim was also featured quite a bit with most of it pleated.

His collection was very much for the bad girl who wants to dress sexy and doesn’t like to conform to the rules. This was perfectly epitomized by the ladies in his front row.

Key accessories included cute furry earrings, furry cuffs, printed bags and Charlotte Olympia platform heels.

Front Row: Lily Allen, Amber Rose, Nicola Roberts, Agyness Deyn, Pixie Geldof and Jamie Winstone

Favourites: The denim pinafore accented with stars which was paired with a pleated skirt and the aqua asymmetrical pleated dress

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Nicola Roberts, Amber Heard, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Zooey Deschanel, Agyness Deyn, Pixie Geldof and Jamie Winstone and Kristen Stewart

Diddy-Dirty Money “Last Train to Paris Album” Launch – Dawn Richard In House Of Holland & Kaleena In Proenza Schouler

Dawn Richard, P Diddy and Kaleena arrived to London today via Eurostar to launch “Diddy-Dirty Money Last Train to Paris Album” at Kings Cross St Pancras Station.

So very cheesy I know.

Diddy was dress in head-to-toe black, whilst Dawn of ‘Dirty Money’ the left wore a cropped top with House Of Holland for Levis stretch buckle jeans from the Spring 2010 collection, which she paired with denim strappy sandals.

Dawn’s band mate Kaleena opted to wear her Proenza Schouler Spring 2010 top with leather studded shorts and wedged ankle boots.

I’m sure between the 3 of them they turned a lot of heads at St Pancras Station today.

Capital Radio Summer Ball – Rihanna In House of Holland

Rihanna was one of the many music acts to take to the stage at London’s Wembley Stadium to perform at 95.8 Capital FM’s Summertime Ball this weekend.

She closed the show performing her hits including her worldwide smash “Umbrella”.

The singer has revamped her look – again.

Just when we got used to the blonde, she goes blood red.

She was spotted backstage after her performance wearing a House of Holland Fall 2010 striped bandage zipper dress with stripey Charlotte Olympia wedges.

As much as I like that’s she keeps things interesting, I really dislike the new hair colour.

This time I don’t think this will grow on me.

Leigh Lezark For House Of Holland Spring 2010

Henry Holland of House of Holland has dragged Levi into 2010 by creating sexy 8-piece men’s and women’s collection for denim-brand.

The S&M-style pieces are accented with golden buckles and black denim straps which give it a quirky edgier feel.

Many of you are still wondering – like me – how Leigh Lezark gets front row seats at nearly every fashion show for 2 seasons in a row.

Well she has gained some fashion credentials by becoming the face of this collection.

Jacob Coupe also features it the look book shot by Matt Irwin.

I must say I’m in lust with this dress which I found on Luisa via Roma.

2010 Elle Style Awards – Agyness Deyn In House Of Holland

Straight Off The Runway Award
Agyness Deyn showed her support for BFF designer pal Henry Holland, by wearing one of the looks from his recent Fall 2010 presentation to the Elle Style Awards last night.

She told me she loved Henry Holland as a friend and that she’s a huge admirer of his work.

The leather black House of Holland Fall 2010 dress appeared to have pieces of blue carpet running around the dress, which the model pulled off really well.

I expected Agyness to be freakishly tall like Erin O’Connor, but she wasn’t as tall as I expected.

But I guess that’s because wasn’t wearing heels.

Runway To 2010 Brit Awards Shortlist Party – Fearne Cotton In Olivia Rubin

TV and radio presenter Fearne Cotton wore a Olivia Rubin Spring 2010 dress to the Brit Awards Shortlist Party at the O2 Arena in London earlier this week.

She teamed the dress with a pair of tights from House Of Holland’s Pretty Polly range with “Wanna Party” written up the back.

We’re used to seeing Fearne in quirky pieces and although I’m not normally a fan of comedy accessories, these tights seemed event (and person) appropriate.

I love this shade of blue on Fearne, and really like how the black waistband cinches her in.

Fearne is a fan of this designer and we have seen her in Olivia Rubin before.

Red lips and curls completed her look.

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.

In M.I.A.’s Closet – House Of Holland Polka Dot Dress


On her due date, singer M.I.A. performed at the 2009 Grammy Awards last month, wearing a House of Holland polka dot dress.

We all watched with our chins on our laps, because the dress was totally sheer, excluding a few well placed polka dot patches, as the 9 month pregnant singe more than held her own, when she performed with 4 rappers on stage.

This dress is available, in a less sheer material, from BrownsFashion.com for only £270/€302.52/$382.97.
