Runway To “Aphrodite” Album Cover – Kylie Minogue In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture

We often see Kylie Minogue leaving her home in London head to toe in designer labels (today she’s wearing Preen & Dolce & Gabbana), so her album cover had to be spectular – and it is.

The Australian singer looks like a Greek goddess on the cover of her 11th studio album “Aphrodite”, which will be released in July.

Her flowing dress was of course designed by her friend Jean Paul Gaultier. The dress is from his recent Spring 2010 Couture collection.

With this stunning look on the cover, I can’t wait to see what she will be wearing in her music video’s.

The first single “All The Lovers” is set to be a huge summer anthem as it sees her celebrate her dance-floor roots.

Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2010

Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fall 2010 presentation took us on a global adventure. We visited West Africa, Turkey, Peru, Morocco, Thailand, India, Russia, Greece, China and many other exotic locations.

The looks were mixed: Chinese silks were paired with Moroccan shoes and West African head scarves. This was best presented by Coco Rocha’s look above.

Thigh-high boots continue to rule the runway but JPG presented us boots which were printed with either florals or stripes. Trench coats were cut to the thigh to show off the boots.

The PETA protesters chanted outside the venue, but that didn’t prevent JPG from presenting pieces trimmed with fox fur and mink.

Jewelery and ankle bells jingled over the loud live band who played the African drums and other instruments.

Other distinct accessories included Masai necklaces.

We saw embroidered tunics, Greek pleated skirts, silk cheongsams, gypsy skirts, military coats, sharply tailored pinstriped suits and very baggy harem pants.

Will we see this collection on the red carpet?

I didn’t think we’d see the previous collection on the red carpet, but it was worn by Dita von Teese and Rihanna so we will have to wait and see.

Gaultier was in very high spirits as he sprinted down the runway at the end of the presentation which you can see in the video.

Normally at this point Anna Wintour rushes out of a venue, but she was still clapping along to the music after JPG had exited the runway and I sensed she was hanging around for a reason.

Then JPG ran back onto the runway, this time wearing a fur trimmed rucksack on his back which had been worn by Sasha Pivovarova during the presentation.

Oh how everyone laughed.

Dita von Teese Front Row @ Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2010 Couture

Dita von Teese was very much the ‘Queen of the Front Row’ at Spring 2010 Haute Couture Fashion Week, despite Amber Rose trying to give her a run for her money.

The diva can go from a sexy Elie Saab dress to this Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2008 Couture tweed dress with a fur detail on the neckline.

The classic skirt suit was worn with black thigh-high boots, whilst she carried a black perforated clutch.

Like Cate Blanchett earlier in the week, we get a peek a top of Dita’s tights via the thigh high split in her skirt.

Maybe these two are about to start a trend.

2010 NRJ Music Awards – Dita von Teese In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture

Dita von Teese give us head-to-toe perfection wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2006 Couture strapless lace dress paired with matching lace Louboutin’s.

If only everyone stepped on the red carpet with this much perfection, I would be a very happy woman.

Her bustier dress is so divine, so delicate, so Dita.

She adds touches of colour with her red lips and nail polish, whilst she sparkles with her diamond earrings.

Yet another BDOTW contender.

2010 NRJ Music Awards – Rihanna In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture

Over the last few months I’ve started to get back into Rihanna’s style.

This is mostly because she appears to have calmed down on the over dramatic pieces, but has managed to maintain an interesting level of creativity.

I think this was beautifully displayed at the 2010 NRJ Music Awards this weekend, when she walked the red carpet wearing a stunning Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2008 Couture gown.

The white embroidered gown was split to the thigh with a silver lurex skirt underneath. I think this look shows a much softer side of Rihanna, which we haven’t seen in a long while.

Her dress was paired with wedged heels and silver jewels.

I know many of you just can’t get over the hairstyle, but what do you think of this look?

The Art of Elysium’s 3rd Annual Gala “Heaven”

This is an incredibly long post, so please click ‘read more…’ below to see the rest of the looks from this amazingly well dressed event.

I was starting to lose hope that I would ever see this amazing Marchesa Fall 2009 dress on the red carpet.

Olivia Wilde has fulfilled my wish by looking drop-dead gorgeous wearing the strapless nude suede dress.

I love those embroidered floral details, the complementary taupe clutch and her nude Brian Atwood ‘Maniac’ pumps.

I don’t know much about Amber Heard, but I’m really impressed with her on the red carpet and shocked that she always manages to wear such big name designers.

Last night she looked sensational wearing this red Christian Dior Spring 2010 belted gown with a chiffon bodice and a satin skirt.

Since Charlize Theron has been M.I.A. on the red carpet in a while, I guess John Galliano might have been looking for an interim muse.

It’s not often we see 3 great Dior Spring 2010 looks in the space of 2 days.

Miss Dior herself – Marion Cotillard wore Dior to the Critic’s Choice Awards on Friday, then Chloe Sevigny wore Dior to the NY Times Style Magazine’s Pre-Golden Globe Awards Party on Saturday.

It’s always a pleasure to see Camilla Belle on the red carpet.

The actress wore a grey Valentino Spring 2010 dress with a satin bow detail on the hip.

I love the way the cape and skirt fan out.  It would’ve been amazing to watch this dress in motion.

I’m not sure about those stunning heels with the dress, but the heels are divine on their own.

On Friday I was worried that after Apphia Michael wore Viktor & Rolf to the Wallpaper Design Awards, that we would only get to see these pieces from this Spring 2010 collection inside magazines.

Anna Paquin delights us by wearing a strapless pink tulle dress with exaggerated hips.

She also blows my theory that only one of each look was ever made for this collection, as hers is pink to the runway’s grey and blue.

An Alexander McQueen knuckle duster clutch, Boucheron diamond studs, a Tom Binns necklace and black gladiator heels complete her look.Read More…

Audi Celebrate The Golden Globes With Nominee Anna Paquin

This event was held for Anna Paquin, but I was in lust Dita von Teese.

The burlesque star stole Anna’s thunder looking exquisite wearing a baby blue corset dress with a cone-shaped bra from Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring 2010 ‘G Spot’ collection.

I think we are going to see a lot of this “underwear as outerwear” trend popping up on the red carpet.

Let’s pray it’s continues to be tastefully done.

I’m very much appreciating the hairstyle change and those stunning blue earrings.

Yet another BDOTW contender. It’s getting packed already and it’s only Monday.

Anna Paquin looked nice and neat wearing a fitted navy sheath Gianfranco Ferré dress, accented with a lavender sash tied to the waist.

Her sash was complemented by a lavender crystallized Gianfranco Ferrè clutch and Jil Sander platform heels.

Dita and Anna maybe worlds apart in the style stakes, but they both look fantastic.

Stylist Liz Goldwyn wore a sexy Gianni Versace LBD, with criss cross leather straps with jeweled buckles from the Bondage 1992 Couture collection.
