Isabel Marant Spring 2012

‘Sportswear meets rock and roll with plenty of Parisian flair’ is the perfect way to sum up Isabel Marant’s Spring 2012 collection.

On a colour palette of red, dark pink, lemon, sky blue, orange, purple and black, leggy supermodels took to the runway wearing American-football-inspired tops with slouchy sweat pants, denim jeans or shorts with a patchwork or tie-dye treatment.

Whilst feeling for the models in the hot venue, I did love the chunky knits. They were presented as oversized grandpa cardigans, racerback dresses, long-sleeve dresses with hoodies, and classic cable knit sweaters. These pieces are perfect for keeping you warm on those mid-summer nights when the temperatures drop.

We also saw tie-dye jumpsuits, oversized shirts, tie-dye mini dresses, lurex mini dresses, rompers, cropped textured pants, oversized jackets and slouchy tie-dye pants. The crochet dresses and tops would make for perfect beach cover-ups.

There was a selection of Rajasthani embroideries pieces which included vests and mini dresses; they added something exotic to this free-spirited collection.

Models walked the runway in sexy ankle chain strappy sandals, which will be snapped up by many celebrities next season.

Sidewalk Style: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Isabel Marant Vest & Alexander Wang Emile Tote

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked chic whilst running errands in LA yesterday.

The model/actress donned an Isabel Marant fur vest despite the hot temperatures.

The rest of her off-duty style included a cool white T by Alexander Wang t-shirt and light-wash denim jeans.

An Alexander Wang Emile tote and aviator shades were added to her achingly hip look.

How does one look so cool when wearing such a hot vest?

Katie Holmes In Isabel Marant & Madewell – The Tonight Show With Jay Leno

Katie Holmes made a guest appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last night.

The actress who’s known for a preppy look opted for a more laidback look.

She wore a pair of Isabel Marant red jeans from the Fall 2010 collection, which we would expect from the likes of Kate Moss or Erin Wasson.

The jeans are doing nothing for her, but I like that she’s trying something different.

A Madewell Montauk mesh pullover over a white vest and Prada heels completed her look.

The thing I like most about this look is her hair.

Katie was on Leno to talk about her new movie, “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” as well as her super-hot Vogue España cover in which we see her channeling her inner dominatrix.

Sidewalk Style – Rachel Bilson’s Isabel Marant Sweater, Sigerson Morrison Sandals & Chloé Aurore Leather Bag

Rachel Bilson was spotted leaving Gelson’s Market in Los Feliz, California after grocery shopping yesterday.

I’m not sure how cool it was in Cali yesterday, but the actress opted to wear an Isabel Marant Spring 2011 cable knit sweater with boyfriend jeans.

Her accessories included Ray-Ban sunglasses, a Chloé Aurore leather bag and white Sigerson Morrison leather gladiator sandals with gold detailing.

Rachel will finally be back on our screens, as her new show “Hart of Dixie” is set to premiere on September 26th.

Who Wore Isabel Marant Better? Beyonce Knowles or Ellen Pompeo

Back in April Beyonce Knowles took a romantic stroll around Paris with husband Jay-Z wearing a pink Isabel Marant ‘Keni’ leather jacket from the Fall 2010 collection.

The structured jacket features quilted stitch detailing, epaulets and angled zippers.

The singer wore the jacket over a denim shirt and camisole top, which she also paired with khaki shorts, pink shades and nude Christian Louboutin ‘Lady Daf’ platform heels.

Ellen Pompeo was spotted wearing the same jacket whilst out shopping in LA recently.

The actress styled her jacket with a white tank top and loose fitting, light-wash denim jeans.

She added a pair of grey suede ankle boots and oversized sunglasses to her casual look.

The top and bottom half of Ellen’s outfit are so conflicting for me and I think the loose jeans ruin the sophisticated qualities of the jacket.

My vote is definitely going to Beyonce. Her outfit is relaxed but chic and perfectly suited to the elegance of Paris.

Sidewalk Style: Hilary Duff’s Isabel Marant Jacket & Lanvin Bag

Hilary Duff was seen out in Beverly Hills running errands last week.

The actress opted to wear all black, but jazzed up her look wearing an Isabel Marant ‘Jordan’ jacket.

Her printed jacket with embroidered details was complemented with red hooped earrings.

The rest of her look was styled with black Christian Louboutin ‘Big Stack 120′ leather pumps, chic Ray-Ban and a Lanvin ‘Amalia’ quilted crossbody bag.

Effortlessly chic or over-styled to run errands?
