Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Jil Sander’s Spring 2011 collection is easily one of my favourite collections of the season.

From the colourful invitation I was expecting pops of colour, but I couldn’t have imagine so much colour with shocking pink, purple, magenta, coral, red, electric blue, green, yellow and orange.

Floral prints, bold vertical and horizontal stripes broke up the solid palette.

We were presented with bold shapes, oversizing, layering and maximizing to create a new silhouette.

Simple white tees were paired with floor-length skirts. Some were fitted, had peplums at the waist or were tulips shaped.

Pants ranged from fitted to oversized. A navy pair took up the whole width of the runway.

Structured coats, blazers, parkas, mini dresses, maxi dress, and skirts make up the rest of this beautiful collection.

Key accessories included shoppers and bags in a multitude of materials, patterns and colours randomly layered.

Sunglasses with coloured frames and mirrored lenses.

Pumps, slingbacks and sandals gave us a glimpse of fluorescent sole.

Favourites: Orange peplum skirt and white ensemble with watercolour print

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Tilda Swinton, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Liv Tyler, Lily Cole, Chloe Sevigny and Katie Holmes

This is the second time we’re seeing Tilda Swinton wearing a look straight off the runway from the Jil Sander Fall 2010 collection.

Her first look we saw at the photocall for Io Sono L’Amore, and here she is again wearing a dress for the premiere in Milan.

The looks are similar, but the details are very different.

The photocall dress had slashed squares all over, whereas this dress has more subtle details.

Who needs accessories when you have that gorgeous flame coloured hair to make you stand out.

In “Io Sono L’Amore”, Tilda wears a red Jil Sander dress which is seen in various parts of the movie.

This silk crepe dress has been re-edited and is now exclusively available on Jil Sander’s online store.

The dress is one piece of the wardrobe for Tilda’s movie character ‘Emma’ which has been entirely created by Jil Sander.

I just love how Tilda transforms herself.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Tilda and Jil Sander are a beautiful combination.

Recently I attended the Jil Sander Fall 2010 presentation during Milan Fashion Week.

In my review I said “Tilda Swinton, this collection was made for you”, and it looks like she agreed with me.

At the “Io Sono L’Amore” photocall in Milan this afternoon, Tilda looked beautiful on the red carpet wearing a black Jil Sander Fall 2010 wool dress.

The dress has box squared cuts through-out.

Her look was kept minimal as she only paired her look with black heels.

This was one of my favourite pieces from the Jil Sander Fall 2010 collection, and I’m delighted to see Tilda wearing it so soon after it was presented.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were in New York to attend the JCPenney’s Best Of Spring Showcase last night.

Mary-Kate wore a black slightly oversized Dries van Noten blazer as a dress, with a leather belt wrapped around her waist.

I like this look on Mary-Kate, mostly because it’s not 10 times too big for her.

Ashley also opted for a dark colour wearing a navy Jil Sander Spring 2010 belted dress.

On the runway this dress was presented with a skirt over a dress, but Ashley opted out of the skirt, but added sheer sleeves.

I’m not sure how you feel about Ashley’s look, but for me her modifications are a major downgrade.

I’m also disappointed with the black tights. Even I own a pair of navy tights.

I don’t get this at all.

Whilst watching the Jil Sander Fall 2010 presentation I was saying to myself “Tilda Swinton, this collection was made for you”.

The menswear tailoring designed by Raf Simons had androgynous qualities which only Tilda would pull off on the red carpet and have our jaws dropping in admiration.

This collection was all about minimalist chic and simple lines.

For those not into the androgynous look Simons presented classic tweed suits and dresses, but I was particularly taken by the plum sweater and mini skirt combo.

There were a lot of all-in-one jumpsuits and playsuits/rompers presented, which someone like Rihanna would love especially if she paired them with the workman-like mens boots which were presented on the runway.

I love shows when the traditional runway rule book is torn up.

For this presentation the runway was shaped liked a cross, with models walking to all four corners.

At moments it felt like runway was crawling with models who all walked in strict precision as not to bump into each other as their paths crossed.

Who says modeling is easy?

This was the longest finale I’ve seen at over an minute. Well worth it though.
