Red Carpet Fashion Awards

The House of Holland Spring 2013 show was my first show during London Fashion Week.

Despite being severely jet-lagged, I was awoken by this fun, bright, colourful collection which will go down very well with his celebrity clientele and fans alike who all arrived in his Fall 2012 colourful houndstooth pieces.

The show started with a head-bopping soundtrack as models took to the runway wearing pieces with a large diamond print in mustard and mauve.

There was more excitement to be had as Holland served up luxe metallic floral jacquards and a multitude of colourful tie-dye mixes.

Every look from the short dungarees, to the oversized shirt, maxi skirts, spaghetti-strap silk dresses, biker jackets, long-sleeve maxi dresses, tunics, blazers, crop tops, shorts and tees looked super comfortable and wearable.

Key accessories included must-have bejewelled beanies, cross-body fold-over bags with crystal accents, and shoes ranging from brogues to strappy sandals.

Front Row: Alexa Chung, Pixie Geldof, Leigh Lezark, Lauren Laverne and Poppy Delevigne

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Agyness Deyn, Nicola Roberts, Leigh Lezark, Pixie Geldof and Rihanna

Favourites: Tie-dye shirt with clashing tie-dye skirt and the floral drop-waist T-shirt dress

Elizabeth Banks and her co-star Chris Pine made a guest appearance on ‘Good Morning America’ to promote their new movie ‘People Like Us’ in New York City yesterday.

The Patron Saint of Colour on the Red Carpet once again donned a dress with bold, colourful hues.

Her House of Holland Fall 2012 violet sleeveless dress with a keyhole detail had zig-zag strips of pink, purple, red, blue and yellow.

Matching her dress, she donned a pair of Brian Atwood ‘Hamper’ purple pumps, which were also multi-coloured with green platforms and pink heels.

Opting for minimal makeup, Elizabeth completed her look with Jennifer Meyer and a silver ring.

Can you see a beautiful rainbow, or has she over done it on this occasion?

Alesha Dixon was spotted outside BBC Radio One earlier this morning.

Despite the mild weather, she was dressed for summer wearing a House of Holland Spring 2012 dress.

The ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge opted to belt her drop-waist ombre leopard-print silk mini dress with a pleated hem.

Her dress is stunning, but the shoes……oh my, the Kirkwood shoes are amazing.

It’s not often I’m so blown away by such excellent styling. The Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Cage’ sandals deserve a spot on the BDOTW by themselves.

Whoever is styling Alesha these days deserves a raise and a pat on the back as her look is so much more refined and covetable.

Alesha accessorized her look with a Chloe ‘Marcie’ bag.

It has been a while since we saw Agyness Deyn, but she made a return to the red carpet for the 2012 Jameson Empire Awards in London on Saturday night.

The model/actress wore a dress by her designer bestie, Henry Holland.

Her red House of Holland Fall 2012 long sleeve red dress incorporated an embroidered purple houndstooth print with a typically quirky Holland twist as the print looked like space invaders.

Agyness is known for her forever-changing hair colour, which was blonde, side-parted and swept behind one ear on this occasion.

Red platform pumps, as presented on the runway, and sheer tights completed her look.

The House of Holland Spring 2012 presentation was a lot of fun.

Henry Holland has quite a following, and I’m not referring to the celebrities as I spotted at least 8 women of all ages wearing the designers’ signature patchwork print Fall 2011 pieces in the audience.

This Spring collection was dominated by prints; plaid, cow and python on a pastel colour palette of mint, lilac, apricot and French navy.

We saw shirts with different colour cuffs and collars, python bra’s, mesh vests, pleated plaid skirts, jumpsuits, drop-waist dresses with pleated skirts, asymmetrical dresses, metallic mesh dresses and python pants with zipper accents which had Jamie Winston saying, “f***ing hell, they’re awesome.”

Some of these pieces were paired with metallic chunky knits, because we’re not always guaranteed a summer here in blighty.

Key accessories included python belts with a gold padlock; Nicholas Kirkwood for House of Holland python print heels, Kim West latex bras and pants.  Katie Hillier created the bags and the jewlery and House of Holland for Pretty Polly provided the fish-net tights and socks.

Front Row: Eliza Doolittle, Nicola Roberts (didn’t get the orange memo), Jamie Winston and Pixie Geldof.

Favourites: Plaid jacket and pleated skirt and ombre cow print drop-waist dress with pleated skirt

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Jamie Winston, Eliza Doolittle, Pixie Geldof, Daisy Lowe, Lily Allen, Pixie Lott, Jessie J, Ellie Goulding, Fergie, Rihanna, Agyness Deyn, Katy Perry, Leigh Lezark and Fearne Cotton
