Jessie J In Julien Macdonald – 2012 Grammy Awards

On the red carpet at the 2012 Grammy Awards, Jessie J called herself a ‘personal disco-ball’.

She did shine like one, wearing a structured and fully embellished silver Julien Macdonald bustier gown with a mermaid hemline.

Jessie styled her hair in a high ponytail with blunt bangs, accessorizing with major statement earrings and a Lulu Guinness black perspex lips clutch.

I love this look on Jessie. I’m surprised she toned down the crazy on this occasion.

Nicole Richie In Julien MAcDonald – 2012 Golden Globe Awards

Nicole Richie showed off a sleek look at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards this evening.

The ‘House of Harlow’ designer wore a silver Julien MAcDonald Spring 2012 gown. The textured dress was a glamorous look for the usually boho-inspired star.

Nicole showed off a sexy open back with a funky, 60’s inspired upswept ponytail, worn with full bangs.

The look was accessorized with Jimmy Choo sandals, thick bangles dotted with gorgeous red stones and a silver clutch.

2011 British Fashion Awards Red Carpet Up

Here are the rest of the stars who attended the 2011 British Fashion Awards.

Kristen McMenamy: The American model wore an ice-white Alexander McQueen Fall 2011 organza pearl embroidered dress to go with her ice-white hair.  Her matching McQueen accessories included a filigree skull clutch, python boots and fur scarf.

Stella McCartney: The designer was, of course, in a look from her recent Spring 2012 collection. Her printed jumpsuit epitomizes her chic, laidback style of dressing. Iron-straight hair and black sandals provided the finishing touches.

Caroline Sieber: Like Alexa Chung, the stylist also wore a look from the Christopher Kane Spring 2012 collection. Her iridescent plunging floral-print mini dress was unimaginatively paired with black pumps.

Nicole Richie In Julien Macdonald – 2011 MOCA Gala

Nicole Richie attended the 2011 MOCA Gala, which was held on Saturday night in LA.

The designer donned her second gown by a British designer in a row, this time opting for a Julien Macdonald Fall 2011 gown.

Her mauve high-neck gown with gorgeous leaf embroidery is yet another bold look which the petite star manages to pull off.

The semi-sheer gown was paired with a House of Harlow ‘Olivia’ python clutch and silver Chopard jewels.

A face-framing updo, dramatic eye makeup and pale pink lips completed the look.

I love the dress from the front; Nicole totally owns it.

The back I’m not so crazy about, because it’s designed to look like she’s exposing her bra strap, which she isn’t.

Kate Beckinsale In Julien Macdonald – Spike TV’s Scream 2011 Awards

Kate Beckinsale was one of many stars to skip the red carpet at Spike TV’s Scream 2011 Awards in California on Saturday night.

The British actress presented wearing a Julien Macdonald Spring 2010 dress.

Her white scuba dress with padded shoulders is quite a step away from Kate’s usual girlie style.

Unfortunately the shoulders make her look like a Quarterback in this picture.

There weren’t any full-length pictures, but I will bet she was wearing pumps.

Her half-up, half-down hairstyle managed to soften the dramatic shoulders, but I still don’t think this was the right look for her.

Cheryl Cole wore the runway version to Gary Barlow’s birthday party at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in January last year.

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
