Front Row @ Paris Fashion Week

Karl Lagerfeld

This is one of my favourite look of Paris Fashion Week, even if Katy Perry is slightly too busty for this Karl Lagerfeld Fall 2009 dress.

I love the structure, the dark taupe colour and the way the dress falls back over her shoulders.

Her look was paired with ankle booties and a Karl Lagerfeld Spring 2009 bag, which has the designers face printed on the front.

Rihanna surprisingly opted for a subtle look wearing all black.

Her look was paired with leather gloves and Christian Louboutin lace pumps.

Lanvin

Janet Jackson looked very sophisticated wearing a black Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 dress with a ruffled detail on one shoulder.

Janet is officially the Sophia Bush of Fashion Week.

Hussein Chalayan

This is my favourite look from Rihanna so far at Paris Fashion Week.

This grey Hussein Chalayan Fall 2009 has an edge without going over the top, even with those thigh-high boots.

I hope she wears more from this designer in the future.

Givenchy

Many of you will be spitting fire that Rihanna is wearing Givenchy Couture, but at least she didn’t make it look comical.

Her black velvet Couture Fall 2009 jacket was paired with a simple LBD and black ankle boots.

Leigh Lezark opted for a Givenchy Resort 2010 look which included black pants, paired with a studded silk cowl-neck sleeveless top and a studded leather vest.

She really did pick the best look to suit her rock and roll style.

Sonia Rykiel

I’ve always loved this Sonia Rykiel Fall 2009 sparkling dress, and I’m so glad to see how cute yet sexy it looks on Katy Perry.

She wore her dress with a pair of Christian Louboutin pigalle’s.

Maison Martin Margiela

Michael Jackson gave us the glove, now Rihanna is trying to give us the Long sleeved glove.

I don’t think her Maison Martin Margiela white long sleeved glove will have the same impact, but she makes it work for what it is.

The disappointing thing was that her dress was so sheer, you could see her nipple ring and thong in some pictures.

Jean Paul Gaultier

Oh Dita von Teese.

Perfection, poise, sophistication and class just oozes from your every pore.

From the top of your head, to the tips of your bustier right down to your Louboutin’s.  You’re probably the only one really deserving to be front row at Paris Fashion Week.

Only you can bring the magic to this Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 Couture dress like no one else could.

J’Adore Dita.  J’Adore.

Rihanna opted for a criss cross  jacket which showed off her satin bra.

Leather pants and Christian Louboutin Ni toi ni moi blue suede boots completed this crazy look.

Katy Perry was more demure wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 black halter dress paired with a pigalle’s and a Chanel quilted bag.

Vivienne Westwood

Rihanna seems to not like wearing much clothes these days.

Here she opted for a Vivienne Westwood Fall 2009 black oversized blazer, which covered her bra and panties.

Thigh-high tan boot completed this “I got dress in a hurry” look.

Jessica Stroup being at Paris Fashion Week is exciting in that it shows she has a lot of fashion potential.

But like Blake Lively before her, she totally wrecks her opportunity by looking a complete mess in the front row.

Her Vivienne Westwood red strapless dress is horribly creased and terribly ill-fitting, plus her Brian Atwood Lola Suede pumps don’t work with her dress.

I hope she has time to redeem herself before she flies back to the US.

Christian Dior

Dita von Teese looks HAWT wearing a Christian Dior leather skirt suit.

If it looks very familiar, that’s because she wore a black wool version to the Wonderbra Party Edition Launch in London recently.

She teams her dress with grey metallic heels and a Christian Dior Resort 2010 leopard print bag.

Carine Roitfeld finally wore something besides her YSL vintage dress and Alaia heels for a nice change.

This time she opted for an Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2009 grey suit, paired with a grey sweater.

I love the positioning of the arm holes on this jacket.

Wang Lei opted for a simple Dior Pre-Fall 2009 grey dress with a neck tie, which is very similar to the grey skirt suit which was presented on the runway.

Rihanna tries to do Dita, but comes off looking quite ridiculous.

She also carried a bag from the Christian Dior Resort 2010 collection, and paired her dress with Christian Louboutin Studded Pigalle Pumps.

This is the worst look of the week.

V59 Magazine’s 6 Supermodel Cover Swimsuit Issue

Kate Moss in a hairy Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2009 jacket, is one of 6 supermodels to grace the cover of V Magazine’s first-ever swimsuit issue, which was shot by Mario Testino.

Inside the issue you will also find other supers including Carmen Kass, Isabeli Fontana, Natalia Vodianova and some hot well oiled guys to drool over in various beach and pool side pics, that will have you longing for your summer vacations.

Claudia Schiffer in handcuffs, strikes a one-legged pose wearing a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 swimsuit, and YSL cage booties.

Matthew Williamson for H&M campaign girl Daria Werbowy, is an absolute knock out, wearing a Versace Spring 2009 cut-out Julie Verhoeven print swimsuit.

Wearing only bikini bottoms, Eva Herzigova’s look is inspired by Marilyn Monroe. Even in the simplest, plainest swimsuit Gisele Bündchen still stands out.

Naomi Campbell takes on a Playboy look, wearing a one-piece strapless swimsuit, gold cuffs and bunny ears. I swear I have seen Naomi pictures before. This is an old picture, right?

I will be standing at my newsagents on May, 6 with Kate and Daria’s covers in my hand, deciding which to buy. You?

Who Wore Maison Martin Margiela Better? Kerry Washington or Kim Kardashian


Kerry Washington was the first to wear this black Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2008 blazer to the Generation Obama Concert last December.

Kerry looked chic, but very avant garde wearing her blazer with a black pencil skirt, and black pumps.

Kim Kardashian wore the white version, to the Y-3 Fall 2009 show during New York Fashion Week.

Some of you liked this look, a lot of you are still not convinced of Kim’s new style direction.

As much as I liked Kim in this look, I have to go with Kerry.

Runway To Y-3 Front Row – Kim Kardashian In Maison Martin Margiela


Is it really possible for someone to go from looking incredibly hoochie in Herve Leger, to wearing gorgeous red Gustavo Cadile gowns, to Maison Martin Margiela in the space of 6 months?

When Kim Kardashian was squeezing her curves into bandages dresses last year, if I said then that she would have been one to watch in 2009, you would have have advised me to stop blogging whilst drunk.

I nearly feel off my chair when I saw Kim Kardashian wearing a Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2008 jacket, to the Y-3 fashion show at New York Fashion Week.

It’s a shock, but a pleasant shock because I think she works it well, without looking like she tired too too hard.

Her look with the leather pants, and the YSL Trib Two’s, definitely needed a belt, so I applaud her for that.

I also love the make-up. Kim’s directional, edgy look puts her up for Best Dressed this week.

What do you guys think?

Too much too soon? Or a step in the right direction?
