Jessie J In Julien Macdonald – 2011 MOBO Awards

Jessie J was a big winner at the 2011 MOBO Awards last night as she took home four out of the five MOBO awards she was nominated for.

The singer walked the red carpet for the first time without her cast, wearing a Julien Macdonald Fall 2011 gown.

Her dramatic gothic chiffon gown with a lace bodice was an unusual choice for an urban awards show, but she was the most original as everyone else opted for short mini dresses.

Jessie’s look was made that much more dramatic with bold red lips and dark eyes against her porcelain skin.

Her trademark bob has been replaced with tumbling dark curls and she accessorized with gold jewels.

Love it or hate it?

Julien Madonald Spring 2012

Normally I’m too jet-lagged after New York to enjoy London Fashion Week, but Julien Macdonald’s Spring 2012 powerful bold collection erased the sleep from my eyes yesterday morning.

The first part of the presentation showcased military inspired pieces with square top military hats, boyish blazers, waistcoats and waistcoat dresses which were layered with crisp white shirts, dresses, fitted pants and nude leather quilted jackets.

A lot of these pieces were backless to provide a sexy edge.

Chinese prints and colourful knits followed before a succession of glamorous looks.

The cocktails dresses and gowns shimmered with beaded details and swayed with metallic tassels.

High octane gowns followed. Sheer gowns with the winged feathered embroidered details which are very Givenchy-esqe followed a bright canary yellow haltered gown and a silver metallic backless halter.

Key accessories included Porsche Design sunglasses, Breitling watches, platform heels and silver metal belts which toughed up most looks and played to the military theme.

Martin Cullen for L’Oreal Paris created the wet-look tightly pinned hairstyles sported by the models with black, red or white paint. Miranda Jones and her L’Oreal Paris team applied that beautiful bold ruby red lip colour.

Front Row: Rosario Dawson, Alesha Dixon, Bianca Jagger, Eliza Doolittle and Lorraine Kelly (yes that Lorraine Kelly from GMTV).

Favourites: Chinese print halter dress with handkerchief hemline and leather quilted jacket with sweater and black skirt

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Rihanna, Jade Parfitt, Pixie Geldof, Gwyneth Paltrow, Elle Macpherson, Olivia Wilde, Keira Knigthley, Heidi Klum, Shingai Shoniwa, Jessica Alba, Minka Kelly and Beyonce Knowles

Selena Gomez In Julien Macdonald – 2011 MTV Video Music Awards

Too Dark & Too Gothic Award
Selena Gomez co-hosted the Pre-Show at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards which was held tonight in LA at the Nokia Theatre.

The petite actress chose an intricate black Julien MacDonald Fall 2011 dress.

Her gothic look features a high lace neckline, a short skirt in the front and an overlay in the back with a longer train.

Selena brightened up her dark ensemble by adding gold accessories, including Brian Atwood pumps, a Judith Leiber metallic box clutch, Lorraine Schwartz Ofira gold drop earrings with black stones and a gorgeous black and gold Lorraine Schwartz Ofira cuff.

She finished her look by pulling her hair back into a casual bun and wearing pink lip-gloss.

I love Selena’s accessories but think her dress is a little too sophisticated for the MTV VMA Awards.

I wish she had opted for something brighter, younger and more fun.

20.07.11 Premiere

Emmanuelle Chriqui In Julien Macdonald – “Entourage” Season 8 Premiere

The gorgeous Emmanuelle Chriqui attended the Season 8 Premiere of “Entourage” at the Beacon Theatre in New York City last night.

She opted to wear a sexy Julien Macdonald dress.

The red orange gown with a beaded black collar was paired with Stuart Weitzman ‘Fever’ pump which are covered in black crystals.

She gets a 7 for the dress, but nil points for the shoes.

A dress with a central split almost demands a strappy sandal. I’m truly baffled by the decision to wear pointy pumps.

This could’ve been a contender.

A sweeping updo, a black clutch plus Lorraine Schwartz and OFIRA jewelry completed her look.

Mollie King In Julien Macdonald – “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2” World Premiere

Mollie King looked gorgeous on the red carpet for the “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2” World Premiere in London tonight.

The Saturday’s singer and girlfriend of David Gandy, opted for a summery lingerie-inspired dress by British designer Julien Macdonald.

Her Spring 2011 Julien Macdonald Peignoir petal-print silk-chiffon dress has a beautiful floaty bohemian feel to it.

The rise and fall gown shows off her bronzed toned legs and regrettably her Nicholas Kirkwood two-tone black and white python peep-toes.

The yellow tone of the runway models strappy sandals worked perfectly with blush and orange petal-print.

Hayden Panettiere In Julien Macdonald – 2011 Tribeca Film Festival “Hoodwinked Too” Screening

Hayden Panettiere attended the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival Family Screening of “Hoodwinked Too” at the Clearview Cinemas Chelsea New York City on Saturday.

The blonde actress opted for a Julien Macdonald Spring 2011 mini dress which has been modified from the runway.

Her blush and orange petal-print silk-chiffon dress has an orange overlay compared to the runway version which is blush.

Whilst I prefer the orange overlay on Hayden, I prefer the skirt on the runway.

Hayden shredded version feels a bit messy to me.

Her tan leather jacket makes her lingerie inspired dress more appropriate for an animated screening, as do her nude pumps.

The bronze Lauren Merkin clutch also provides a nice contrast.

Robin Wright In Julien Macdonald – “The Conspirator” New York Premiere

Robin Wright totally redeemed herself at “The Conspirator” New York Premiere last night.

We weren’t too keen on her Westwood suit yesterday, but what a difference 24 hours makes.

She did a complete 180 wearing a crispy white Julien Macdonald pant suit which sharply nips her in at the waist, and has silver accents on the pants.

Robin’s most improved look of the week also included a sexy pair of silver Jimmy Choo ‘Maiden’ strappy sandals and pink glossy lips.

2011 Jameson Empire Awards

You all hated disliked Keira Knightley’s Rodarte dress, so what are your feelings on the other stars who walked the red carpet at the 2011 Jameson Empire Awards in London last night?

Noomi Rapace becomes the latest celeb to fall in love with those Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ platform pumps or as some of you have called them – stripper heels.

Her heels do brighten up her Viktor & Rolf LBD which she teams with a gold trimmed Alexander McQueen clutch.

Olivia Williams wore a Julien Macdonald nude halter dress with gold embellishments.

Neutral make-up, gold tassel earrings and Jimmy Choo heels completed her look.

Ophelia Lovibond opted for a two-tone Paule Ka dress.

I loved her accessories which included an Alexander McQueen skull detailed peep-toes – which she oddly teamed with white tights – and a Mulberry Lily metallic leather shoulder bag.

Teased tresses completed her look.

Model Lily Cole showed off her mile high legs in a canary yellow Prada sleeveless mini dress.

Her bright flirty dress was teamed with Miu Miu black and white sandals and jeweled headband.

I still can’t get used to her with dark hair.

Even with the white tights I have to say Ophelia is my favourite here. I love her 60s vibe.

Not a black pump in sight. How very refreshing.
