Paloma Faith Front Row @ Spring 2014 LFW

Paloma Faith Front Row @ Spring 2014 LFW

Paloma Faith also hit the front-row sevearl times during London Fashion Week over the weekend. Her over-the-top, eccentric style had no danger of being in short supply, either.

Julien Macdonald: The British songstress set a fittingly glam tone at the Julien Macdonald show in a slinky white, one-shoulder gown with spidery gold sequin detail crawling down the statement sleeve. To go with the slit-to-there gown? Metallic-gold platform pumps and a wide-brimmed hat, which actually didn’t match the mood of the dress, but checked the quirky Paloma box.

Ashish: Sparkling with plenty of personality and pizazz the singer donned a salmon sequin show-stopper with wearing her flame lock down which on most would upstage her look, but it just adds to the theatrics here.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label: Pouring on the funky appeal, Paloma paid homage to Vivienne in head-to-toe plaid with a mannish green-and-blue suit. The bold moves continued with her gold platform pumps and neon cotton candy-pink lip, whilst she skipped a hat in exchange for a pile of fiery red-orange locks twisted atop her head.

Anna Kendrick Front Row @ Spring 2014 LFW

Anna Kendrick Front Row at LFW

Anna Kendrick has been frequenting the London Fashion Week scene over the weekend, sporting a host of eclectic looks—from sweety to sultry.

Julien Macdonald: Flaunting the fringe, the actress turned vamp-star in an embellished black mesh, body-con dress and pointy ankle-strap heels. Her no-makeup look and casual centre-parted strands needed a bigger boost to stand up to this statement.

Temperley London: At The Savoy Hotel, Anna channeled her inner flower-girl in an embroidered tea frock. The beige colour fell a bit flat, though, whilst a large Me Char ‘Edith’ clutch and heavy black platforms really weighed down the more diaphanous effect of the sheer lined dress.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label: She took the label into consideration when selecting her look that could only be described as schoolgirl-punk. It was classic Vivienne with a boldly coloured purple-and-yellow plaid pencil skirt matched with a sheer, white blouse and an eggplant, exaggerated-lapel leather jacket. Here, we also had another appearance from the never-ending white pumps and a slightly rebellious, messy low ponytail.

Ellie Goulding In Julien Macdonald – 2013 GQ Men Of The Year Awards

Ellie Goulding In Julien Macdonald - 2013 GQ Men Of The Year Awards

While live reporting on the 2013 GQ Men Of The Year Awards yesterday evening, it appears I missed Ellie Goulding.

The singer was spotted at The Royal Opera House in London wearing two Julien Macdonald Fall 2013 looks.

For the red carpet she wore a feather-festooned and mirror-embellished mini dress styled with Rupert Sanderson ‘Moiki’ silver cut-out metallic pumps and a silver clutch. I will surprise myself and say that I kinda like the look, although every time I see her hair I wish she had done something different with it. A ponytail would’ve been perfect.

Her second Macdonald dress was worn to the after-party. This more daring embellished mini dress isn’t my favourite. It’s more JLo than Ellie Goulding. It’s a sexy dress, yet there is no sex appeal here.

Paloma Faith In Dolce & Gabbana & Julien Macdonald – V Festival

Paloma Faith In Dolce & Gabbana & Julien Macdonald - V Festival

Paloma Faith performed at V Festival on Saturday and Sunday this weekend in England.

Saturday – Hylands Park, Chelmsford: No one should be surprised that the Dolce devotee wore a Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 head-to-toe look for the occasion, selecting this beautiful multi-coloured mosaic-print strapless dress, adding an embellished scarf, opulent heart-shaped gold earrings and ankle-strap espadrilles.

I know many of you feel her style is OTT, but as a performance look this is exactly how to stand out when performing to 100,000 people.

Sunday – Weston Park, Stafford: For her second performance, Paloma wore a Julien Macdonald Fall 2012 purple sheath with gold-and-black embroidery styled with yet another pair of statement earrings and a purple satin fascinator with gold detailing.

Of the two looks, the Dolce & Gabbana frock is much preferred. As a performance piece it stands out and allows more movement.

Nina Dobrev attended Cosmopolitan’s Summer Bash held at Palihouse in West Hollywood, California on Saturday, where she stunned once again.

This time the September cover star wore a Julien Macdonald Fall 2013 sleeveless mini dress featuring nude sheer panels, which she styled with Elie Saab accessories including a gold clutch and white sandals.

Styling her hair in a quiffed ponytail, the actress completed her party look with kohl-rimmed eyes and nude lips.

Which of Nina’s weekend looks do you prefer? This or the J. Mendel from the Teen Choice Awards?
