Red Carpet Fashion Awards

On Saturday I couldn’t help but be disappointed watching Cheryl Cole walked onto the X Factor stage.

After her bold David Koma statement dress, her Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 sheath dress was tame in comparison.

I can only believe that the criticism of last weeks choice got to her.

Her JPG dress was instantly recognisable by the X on the bodice, which was featured on many pieces in the Fall 2009 collection.

Her dress appeared to be modified slightly from the runway, as her dress was embellished with black crystals to allow the dress to sparkle on screen.

She paired her dress with black platforms.

The dress was just OK, but the hairstyle felt very dated.

She should’ve pulled it back to show off the X and details on her dress.

I loved Cheryl’s burst of colour on Sunday nights show.

The judge wore a Marios Schwab shift dress with crystal-embellishments in an opening in the bodice from the Fall 2009 collection.

She interesting paired her dress with nude heels.

Again I had a problem with the hair.  On Saturday night it felt to dated, whereas her hair on Sunday nights show looked like the stylist got his inspiration from a local school playground.

You may remember that Sienna Miller wore a watered down and nearly unrecognisable version of this dress earlier this year.

From your comments yesterday it’s clear that Lady GaGa is the equivalent of Marmite.

You either love her or hate her, and the feelings are very strong on both sides.

The eccentric star was spotted making her way to the MTV studios in New York City yesterday to promote her album “The Fame Monster”.

She looked the most normal I have seen her in a while dressed in a black Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2010 strapless dress accessorized with an Erickson Beamon necklace/belt contraption.

GaGa arrived at the MTV studio’s to appear on the Alexa Chung show. You can watch her interview here.

Lady GaGa also stopped by the BET studios to visit hosts Terrence and Rocsi on “BET’s 106 & Park”.

The singer wore another JPG look, this time it was a nude leotard with the cone-shaped bra which was made famous by Madonna.

She also wore her fish-net tights and John Galliano heels again.

Her interview for this show can be watched here.

Karl Lagerfeld

This is one of my favourite look of Paris Fashion Week, even if Katy Perry is slightly too busty for this Karl Lagerfeld Fall 2009 dress.

I love the structure, the dark taupe colour and the way the dress falls back over her shoulders.

Her look was paired with ankle booties and a Karl Lagerfeld Spring 2009 bag, which has the designers face printed on the front.

Rihanna surprisingly opted for a subtle look wearing all black.

Her look was paired with leather gloves and Christian Louboutin lace pumps.

Lanvin

Janet Jackson looked very sophisticated wearing a black Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 dress with a ruffled detail on one shoulder.

Janet is officially the Sophia Bush of Fashion Week.

Hussein Chalayan

This is my favourite look from Rihanna so far at Paris Fashion Week.

This grey Hussein Chalayan Fall 2009 has an edge without going over the top, even with those thigh-high boots.

I hope she wears more from this designer in the future.

Givenchy

Many of you will be spitting fire that Rihanna is wearing Givenchy Couture, but at least she didn’t make it look comical.

Her black velvet Couture Fall 2009 jacket was paired with a simple LBD and black ankle boots.

Leigh Lezark opted for a Givenchy Resort 2010 look which included black pants, paired with a studded silk cowl-neck sleeveless top and a studded leather vest.

She really did pick the best look to suit her rock and roll style.

Sonia Rykiel

I’ve always loved this Sonia Rykiel Fall 2009 sparkling dress, and I’m so glad to see how cute yet sexy it looks on Katy Perry.

She wore her dress with a pair of Christian Louboutin pigalle’s.

Maison Martin Margiela

Michael Jackson gave us the glove, now Rihanna is trying to give us the Long sleeved glove.

I don’t think her Maison Martin Margiela white long sleeved glove will have the same impact, but she makes it work for what it is.

The disappointing thing was that her dress was so sheer, you could see her nipple ring and thong in some pictures.

Jean Paul Gaultier

Oh Dita von Teese.

Perfection, poise, sophistication and class just oozes from your every pore.

From the top of your head, to the tips of your bustier right down to your Louboutin’s.  You’re probably the only one really deserving to be front row at Paris Fashion Week.

Only you can bring the magic to this Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 Couture dress like no one else could.

J’Adore Dita.  J’Adore.

Rihanna opted for a criss cross  jacket which showed off her satin bra.

Leather pants and Christian Louboutin Ni toi ni moi blue suede boots completed this crazy look.

Katy Perry was more demure wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 black halter dress paired with a pigalle’s and a Chanel quilted bag.

Vivienne Westwood

Rihanna seems to not like wearing much clothes these days.

Here she opted for a Vivienne Westwood Fall 2009 black oversized blazer, which covered her bra and panties.

Thigh-high tan boot completed this “I got dress in a hurry” look.

Jessica Stroup being at Paris Fashion Week is exciting in that it shows she has a lot of fashion potential.

But like Blake Lively before her, she totally wrecks her opportunity by looking a complete mess in the front row.

Her Vivienne Westwood red strapless dress is horribly creased and terribly ill-fitting, plus her Brian Atwood Lola Suede pumps don’t work with her dress.

I hope she has time to redeem herself before she flies back to the US.

Christian Dior

Dita von Teese looks HAWT wearing a Christian Dior leather skirt suit.

If it looks very familiar, that’s because she wore a black wool version to the Wonderbra Party Edition Launch in London recently.

She teams her dress with grey metallic heels and a Christian Dior Resort 2010 leopard print bag.

Carine Roitfeld finally wore something besides her YSL vintage dress and Alaia heels for a nice change.

This time she opted for an Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2009 grey suit, paired with a grey sweater.

I love the positioning of the arm holes on this jacket.

Wang Lei opted for a simple Dior Pre-Fall 2009 grey dress with a neck tie, which is very similar to the grey skirt suit which was presented on the runway.

Rihanna tries to do Dita, but comes off looking quite ridiculous.

She also carried a bag from the Christian Dior Resort 2010 collection, and paired her dress with Christian Louboutin Studded Pigalle Pumps.

This is the worst look of the week.

There are many things that fit together perfectly.

Georgina Chapman and Marchesea, Renee Zellweger and Carolina Herrera, Victoria Beckham and Victoria Beckham Collection, Charlize Theron and Dior and Kylie Minogue and Jean Paul Gaultier.

Kylie was in San Francisco last night for the opening night of her US Tour at the Fox Oakland Theatre.

The pint-sized pop princess has worn Jean Paul Gaultier for many of her tours and her current “For You For Me US Tour” is no exception.

Her looks include a sexy silver corset paired with Giuseppe Zanotti heels, jeweled cuffs and a globe headpiece.

Here she wears a Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 couture sparkling mini dress, a leather vest and Christian Louboutin Supra Fifre thigh-high boots.

This stunning shimmering Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 Couture silver halter-neck gown has an ombre gold hem.

A sparkling black leotard is paired with two-tone tights.

A white Jean Paul Gaultier gown was paired with a Sergent’s hats, followed by a sexy Madonna-esqe coned Jean Paul Gaultier bustier paired with leather gloves, a spikey headpiece and thigh-thigh Louboutin.

Each look is more dramatic than the previous. She knows how to dazzle the crowd.

The rest of her tour dates are as follows:

1st October Fox Theater Oakland, (San Francisco Bay Area)
3rd October The Pearl Palms Resort & Casino, Las Vegas
4th October Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles
7th October The Congress Theater, Chicago
9th October Air Canada Centre, Toronto
11th October Hammerstein Ballroom, NYC, NY
12th October Hammerstein Ballroom, NYC, NY
13th October Hammerstein Ballroom, NYC, NY

Lady Gaga is known as a pop singer, but more often associated it’s her very creative outfits which get the most attention and this was definitely the case last night at the VMAs.

She had many costume changes from her Jean Paul Gaultier red carpet gown, to her red lace onesie when she collected an award, to this space-aged sliver one-shoulder body suit she wore in the press room.

The Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 Couture corseted body suit has voluminous hips, with the same padded detail on her shoulder.

She paired her look with black shimmering boots.

Kylie Minogue and Dita von Teese are both big fans of Jean Paul Gaultier’s work.

Kylie will often wear his custom designs on stage, whereas Dita will wear his pieces on the red carpet.

Evan Rachel Wood has managed to shake off the Dita comparisons in recent months, and I don’t get any Dita vibes from this look.

The actress wore a sophisticated Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 criss cross halter black dress to the New York screening of “Whatever Works” last night.

The belted dress has a fishnet overlay, which you can see via the cut out panel on her thigh.

Her look was completed with her red hair tied back, with a few pieces framing her face, black Louboutin peep-toes, and a dark grey sparkling VBH Venus Clutch.

She opted for rosy shimmering pink lips, when she could have easily opted for red.

I love this look.  She looks very mature, sophisticated and elegant.
