Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Jil Sander’s Spring 2012 was one of my favourite presentations this fashion week.

The 50s-inspired collection started off with several clean, crisp white knee-length dresses paired with white lace-up boots.

After the third or fourth dress we started to believe this was going to be an all-white purity collection before models took to the runway wearing paisley and gingham prints, plus we saw a selection of black, green and yellow looks.

This minimal, modern collection presented lean pant suits, layered separates, shift dresses, shorts paired with tailored blazers, graphic knit sweaters paired with full white skirts, and short-sleeve shirts paired with fluid organza skirts.

Shirt-dress-inspired gowns, which could work as wedding gowns, closed the show.

Key accessories included veiled beanie hats, bags and clutches, plus chunky heel pumps in a range of colours and patent ankle boots.

Erickson Beamon teamed up with designer Raf Simons to create the crystal earrings. They also created jewelled brooches which were added to dresses to provide an elegant finishing touch.

Front Row: Anna Dello Russo and all the top editors

Favourites: Paisley print top with navy skirt and graphic knit top with gingham pants

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Tilda Swinton, Cate Blanchett, Diane Lane, Karen Elson, Erin O’Connor

Kristen Stewart and Kate Moss were front row at the 10am Mulberry show which I attended yesterday. It was so cute to see the young star and supermodel deep in conversation like they were old friends.

Kristen Stewart: The actress is currently in the UK shooting a new movie. She opted to wear a summery Mulberry ‘Neely’ Resort 2012 striped dress with a striped belt. I love the dress, but I wish she’d worn the same heels as the model instead of these midnight blue Mulberry ‘Braided’ booties. I get why she picked these boots as they work with her style.

Kate Moss: The super breezed in wearing a double denim Mulberry Resort 2012 look. The jury is still out on whether I like double denim, but both Kate and Charlize Theron know how to rock it. I found Kate to be very charming.

Olivia Palermo: The front row London Fashion Week regular also wore a look from the Mulberry Resort 2012 collection. Her fuchsia pink metallic top was paired with Hudson Nico skinny jeans, Mulberry bow front pumps and a Mulberry ‘Harriet’ clutch from the Resort 2012 collection.

Anna Dello Russo: The Street Style photographers favourite wore a floral Jil Sander Fall 2011 dress to which she added an orange belt. She also added black pointy ankle boots, but she’s forgiven as she carried a gorgeous yellow Bottega Veneta clutch plus a Gucci snake-skin tote.

Olivia is my favourite here.

Nicola Roberts from UK girl group, Girls Aloud became the 3rd member of the band to go solo.

Last month she only managed to reach #27 on the charts with her debut single ‘Beat of My Drum’.

She will be hoping for better success with its follow-up ‘Lucky Day’, which the quirky singer was spotted shooting the track’s accompanying video in New York over the weekend.

Nicola wore a Jil Sander Spring 2011 mini dress.

Before you have a heart-attack she didn’t take scissors to the runway version, as a shorter version is available on Net-A-Porter.com.

The bold vibrant multi-coloured floral-print silk mini dress was paired with some high-top sneakers and punchy pink lips.

Nicola’s dress is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter.com.

The Jil Sander Fall 2011 collection felt sportier in comparison to Spring.

Raf Simons still played with bright colours and most looks had volume; skirts, coats and dresses.

But it wasn’t all about volume. This ski wear inspired collection presented us with a lot of body-conscious looks.

We saw a lot of black in this collection, but it served to enable the bold red, royal blue, yellow and green looks pop on the well lit venue.

I also loved the winter floral pieces which really stood out.

Some of my favourite pieces from this collection included the cocoon pieces with the arms lined up perfectly with the pockets.

The models were styled with conical hair, red lips and blue eyeshadow.

Minimalist went maxi on this occasion. The normally poker faced fashion crowd couldn’t help but raise a smile during this presentation.

The key accessories were two-tone clutches, totes and wedges.

Front Row: Anna Wintour

Favourites: Teal cocoon dress and mustard 3/4 length sleeve dress

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Tilda Swinton

In the space of a week we’ve now seen 2 looks from the Jil Sander Spring 2011 collection on the red carpet in Europe.

This dress was my favourite of the collection, so I’m really pleased to see it worn by Hannah Herzsprung.

The actress attended the Berlin Film Festival Premiere of ”True Grit” last night with Anna Maria Muehe who kinda faded into the background.

I always assumed the skirt was tulip shaped, but that illusion I now see comes from the model walking and her hands being in the pockets.

Like all those who have worn a look from this now well worn Spring 2011 collection, Hannah kept her look simple by pulling her hair back and adding a bold dash of red lippie.

A pink fold-over clutch completed her look.

Hannah’s Jil Sander look is available to purchase from Browns Fashion. I’ve already ordered the tee.
