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.

02.03.09 In Her Closet

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.

Who Wore House Of Holland Better? Agyness Deyn or M.I.A.


Believe it or not, but the House of Holland Spring 2009 sheer dress with black and white polka dots which Maya aka M.I.A wore when she performed at the Grammy’s, was a runway sample.

That means it was exactly the same dress Agyness Deyn had worn at the House of Holland after party during London Fashion Week last year.

Hard to believe a 9 month pregnant woman, can fit into a dress designed for a size 0 model.

I admire both women for having the balls to wear this daring dress, but Maya made a bigger impact, so she wins this for me.

Runway To Grammy’s Stage – M.I.A In House Of Holland


OMG. I can not believe that M.I.A. performed. More power to her.

The colourful pregnant star wore a sheer House of Holland Spring 2009 dress, with strategically placed black and white polka dot pieces.

What would she have done had she gone into labour whilst performing?

She has just gone up in my estimation.
