Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Before the Loewe Spring 2012 presentation I was invited backstage for a sneak peek and to meet the designer behind the Spanish brand, Stuart Vevers.

Stuart believes being British works to his advantage as he is constantly finding inspiration from his new base in Madrid.

For Spring 2012 he was inspired by Spanish architecture to create the tiled prints. He wanted the prints to feel luxurious, so each garment has a different print, despite this being an expensive process.

Stuart showed me the leather pieces which are very light and soft while the jackets are reversible with suede on the inside.

Other leather pieces have cut-out details, prints, perforations or added chiffon details in order to keep them fresh and interesting.

Stuart showcased gorgeous feminine silhouettes on a colour palette of terracotta, sea blue, ash grey, navy and gold.

Ladylike fitted suede dresses, sophisticated pencil skirts, jackets, coats and blouses made up this very elegant collection.

Key accessories included platform shoes and, of course, gorgeous bags. We saw perforated shoulder bags, luxurious leather totes and wristlet clutches.

Models wore their hair sleek straight behind their ears with smoky eyes and a dark red lip colour.

The newest celebrity ‘IT’ bag on the block is the Loewe Flamenco bag which was presented during the Spring 2011 collection.

The nappa leather Flamenco bag stands out because of its variety of colours, drawstring opening and – in some cases contrasting coloured – tassels.

This bag would be sure to jazz up any look.

Yasmin le Bon, Claudia Schiffer and Jessica Alba opted for bold colours, whilst Mila Kunis carried a more conservative bronzed colour.

Other celebs seen carrying this bag include Freida Pinto, Leigh Lezark, Emily Blunt and Leighton Meester.

The Loewe Flamenco bag comes in a range of colours which has me shuffling from the nude to the purple in a failed attempt to pick a favourite.

Matches Fashion have narrowed down the options, as they have this bag available in green, purple and orange.

Jessica Alba has been spotted around LA carrying a new bag.

Her Loewe Amazona bag has a neutral mink colour with pink and white detailing. The bag seems to go well with pretty much anything she wears.

She was first spotted carrying the bag whilst shopping with her daughter wearing a white top, khaki pants, a taupe cardigan and a statement necklace.

The second time was leaving the hairdressers wearing a striped top with Paige Denim Venice crop pants and colourful sandals.

Malin Akerman was one of the many stars to walk the red carpet at the Montblanc charity cocktail party hosted By The Weinstein Company last night in LA.

She opted to wear this burgundy suede Loewe Spring 2010 mini dress with black panels on the side and a pleated skirt.

My first thought was “no…it makes Malin look really bottom heavy”.

But it started to grow on me very quickly.

I love the fun nature of this dress, it’s not a predictable choice and I love the Fall colour.

The only downside are the heels. The runway shoes would’ve been preferred.

We don’t see the Spanish brand that often on the red carpet, but Victoria Beckham and Sienna Miller are fans.

Of any celebrity in the world Victoria Beckham must have the most frequent airmiles.

We constantly see her at LAX or Heathrow strutting her stuff with her Hermes black Birkin by her side.

She left LAX last week wearing a LBD from her Fall 2009 collection which was accented with a jeweled detail.

Her look was paired with her favourite Alaia cardigan and her new Alaia heels which she debuted in Paris last year.

It’s head-to-toe black, but so very chic.

I’m also loving the slightly longer locks

Yesterday Victoria left London after no doubt being in town to check on her Fall 2010 collection.

We’re used to seeing Victoria wear coats without tights in the winter and this was no exception.

The designer opted for a Loewe trench coat with shiny bright orange buttons, which provided the only pop of colour in her look.

Her favourite suede Christian Louboutin ankle books complete her look.

Gare Du Nord Train Station, Paris

I love it when Victoria Beckham is in Europe, as we get to see so much of her.

The fashion designer was spotted hopping off the Eurostar at Gare Du Nord station in Paris earlier today.

The woman famed for wearing sunglasses this time hid behind her Loewe Pre-Fall 2009 hat, whilst wearing a black leather trench coat, Trib Two’s and Loewe Paloma 29 bag which we’ve seen her carrying before.

Only VB would dare sport this look.

“The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus” New York Premiere

Lily Cole certainly has the legs to pull off this striped Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 Couture short suit.

I just don’t get the matching thigh-high boots.

Women In Film & Television 29th Annual Muse Awards, New York

America Ferrera looked stunning wearing a Proenza Schouler black wool cut-out dress.

I love everything about this look from the cut of the dress, to her beehive hairstyle and her metallic peep-toes.

She may tend to wear a lot of black, but she always looks so well put together.

“It’s Complicated” New York Premiere

Lake Bell always looks so sexy, even when she’s not trying.

The actress smolders wearing a Narciso Rodriguez royal blue crepe dress with the trademark criss cross straps.

Her look is paired with Narciso Rodriguez black suede strap sandals, and bubblegum pink lips.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Rachel Weisz also opted for a pop of blue wearing this belted dress with flutter sleeves.

I love the look, but the peek-a-boo bra distracts me from loving this look.
