2014 MOBO Awards

2014 MOBOs

The MOBO Awards were held at the SSE Arena on Wednesday (October 22) in London, England.

Mel B: The X Factor judge, who co-hosted the event, took to the red carpet with husband Stephen Belafonte wearing a slashed-to-the-thigh white one-sleeve Julien Macdonald gown featuring gold embellishments. The former Spice Girl isn’t known for her style, but recently she has been making great strides. This takes her back several steps.

Nicole Scherzinger: The singer, who has her own Missguided collection, opted to wear this laser-cut leather frock from Ermanno Scervino styled with Gianmarco Lorenzi ankle boots which just don’t go with the sexy fitted frock.

The Saturdays – 2014 Pride of Britain Awards

Pride Of Britain Awards - Red Carpet Arrivals

Three-fifths of girl group The Saturdays attended the Pride of Britain Awards at The Grosvenor House Hotel on Monday (October 6) in London, England, all opting for halter-neck dresses.

Mollie King: While she may have got the halter-neck memo, she didn’t get the wear black memo, standing out from the trio wearing a Julien Macdonald Spring 2014 dove-grey gown accented with shimmering mesh panels meaning she could forgo wearing bling on the night.

Vanessa White: She may be the shortest in the line-up, but she grabbed my attention in her Forever Unique ‘Blair’ gown. Sleek and elegant, she continues to be the one I look to first in this group. Style-wise, she’s come such a long way.

Rochelle Humes: Oozing grace and elegance from every pore, Rochelle stood head and shoulders above her bandmates wearing a gorgeous lace Philip Armstrong gown with a point d’esprit panel. She couldn’t have done much more to perfect this look.

Heidi Klum In Julien Macdonald – Project Runway 2014 Final

Heidi Klum In Julien Macdonald - Project Runway 2014 Final

Heidi Klum hosted the ‘Project Runway’ Season 13 Finale Show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2015 at The Theatre at Lincoln Centre in New York City on Friday (September 5).

The bronzed supermodel was back on familiar stomping ground with this leggy look, courtesy of Julien Macdonald’s Fall 2014 collection.

The sheer lace, body-con micro-dress had all the hallmarks of the designer, beginning with the glitzy embellishment and ending with the undeniable skin-baring sexy appeal.

The magenta-pink colour of the dress and the intricate pattern-work was lovely, even if there wasn’t too much of it. She echoed the hue in her sandals and statement earrings to tie the ensemble together.

Who Wore Julien Macdonald Better…Kate Beckinsale or Taylor Swift?

Who Wore Julien Macdonald Better Kate Beckinsale or Taylor Swift

For the 2011 Vanity Fair Oscar party, Kate Beckinsale wore a gorgeous Julien Macdonald black, long sleeve sequin embellished dress with a sheer back and sheer sleeves which glimmered from every angle.

Styled with a black clutch and a signature high ponytail, she was the picture of glamour and perfection.

Cut to 2014 and Taylor Swift wore the same dress to the same event taking it up a level with the ruby lips and ring, however, Kate wins for me, for allowing the gown to speak for itself.

Arlenis Sosa In Julien Macdonald – ‘Two Days, One Night’ (‘Deux Jours, Une Nuit’) Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Arlenis Sosa In Julien Macdonald - ‘Two Days, One Night’ (‘Deux Jours, Une Nuit’) Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Arlenis Sosa attended the ‘Two Days, One Night’ (‘Deux Jours, Une Nuit’) premiere during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 20) in Cannes, France.

The model dazzled on the red carpet, wearing a Julien Macdonald Fall 2014 gold-embellished dress with all the expected slits and cut-outs you expect from the Welsh designer.

Despite the predictably, I was going to give this a pass because I love the colour against her skin tone.

Sadly, the look was ruined for me as the ‘illusion’ panel at the back not only had a seam running through it, but also didn’t match her skin tone – meaning that the illusion wasn’t really there.

Chopard drop earrings completed her look.

Shakira In Julien Macdonald – 2014 Billboard Music Awards

Shakira In Julien Macdonald - 2014 Billboard Music Awards

Before her performance during the show, Shakira walked the red carpet of the 2014 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas tonight (May 18).

The singer wore a pretty blue long-sleeved dress from Julien Macdonald’s Fall 2014.

The patterned sheer paneling is an interesting take on the hot trend, and by forgoing any dramatic jewelry, Shakira definitely lets this dress do the talking.

I do feel like the chunky black platforms are out of place, and wish she’d opted for a strappy silver sandal or even a nude pump instead.

Simple but classic hair and makeup are perfectly Shakira, and keep the singer well within her comfort zone.

Nothing too dramatic, but a lovely turn on the red carpet.

Lindsay Lohan In Julien Macdonald – Gabrielle’s Gala

Lindsay Lohan In Julien Macdonald - Gabrielle's Gala

Lindsay Lohan took to the red carpet in London this evening (May 7) for Gabrielle’s Gala held at the Old Billingsgate Market.

The actress wore a Julien Macdonald Fall 2013 green and blue embellished mini dress featuring an open neckline and accented with an illusion panel and a black hemline.

My instincts tell me to nitpick, but I’m failing to come up with anything justifiable, other than that she should’ve kept the runway belt – especially with the hemline.

I’m sure you were expecting this look to be a hot mess when you saw the title, so are you pleasantly surprised?
