Florence Welch In Marios Schwab – LOVE Magazine and Neil Barrett Christmas Party

Florence Welch In Marios Schwab - Love Magazine's Christmas Party

Florence Welch was spotted leaving Love Magazine’s Christmas Party held at the Lady Ottoline public house in London on Tuesday evening (December 17).

The flame-haired singer wore a black camisole with her Marios Schwab Spring 2014 printed cape-like top featuring a jewelled neckline and flowing train, which I can only imagine was the selling point of this look for Florence.

Some might take issue with the sheerness of the trouser, which featured a beaded strip down both sides, but for me the issue is that I wish the trousers appeared black and not so nude.

Florence completed her look with black pumps and a Smythson silver envelope clutch.

Jodie Kidd In Marios Schwab – British Fashion Awards 2013

Jodie Kidd In Marios Schwab - British Fashion Awards 2013

Jodie Kidd joined the glam group at the 2013 British Fashion Awards, hosted Monday evening at the London Coliseum in England.

The model had a bit of a Renaissance moment in a column gown by Marios Schwab, featuring deep eggplant embroidery in a lacey pattern from the designer’s Fall 2013 collection.

I think it was the long, split sleeves that contributed most to the costume quality—that, and the off-the-shoulder, sheer nude illusion neckline that was topped off by a choker-necklace-inspired embroidered accent.

She finished the look by mixing metals, carrying a small, bronze box Kotur clutch and wearing silvery sandals.

Long, centre-parted locks didn’t seem appropriate, but at least they distracted a bit from that non-illusory neckline.

2013 Bazaar Stars Charity Night Red Carpet Roundup

2013 Bazaar Stars Charity Night

Alongside Fan Bingbing, Li Bingbing and Shu Qi, there were many other stars who attended the 2013 Bazaar Stars Charity Night held at China World Summit Wing in Beijing, China yesterday evening.

You weren’t too enamored with the aforementioned starlets, so how do this lot fare?

Bai Baihe: The Chinese actress kept things very simple wearing a red silk satin Valentino Fall 2013 long sleeved portrait neckline gown styled with a clear Valentino clutch and – what appears to be –  no makeup. If I was to put one person from this event through to BDOTW, she would be my pick.

Gao Yuanyuan: Opting for a more futuristic look, the Chinese actress wore a Burberry Prorsum LBD with striking geometric metal straps from the Fall 2013 collection.  She styled her frock with a Bulgari clutch – which was perfectly in tune with the vibe of her dress – and simple black pumps.

Sui He: The Chinese model looked very beautiful and statuesque wearing a Marios Schwab Fall 2013 dark-green velvet gown with a gold accent at the empire-waist. The gown appears to be off-the-shoulder, however, it features an illusion yoke only noticeable by the neckline. While I am not a fan of how she accessorized the look, I do love the gown, and both her hair and makeup.

Aubrey Plaza In Marios Schwab – 2013 Emmy Awards

Aubrey Plaza In Marios Schwab - 2013 Emmy Awards

Aubrey Plaza was one of the first to hit the red carpet at the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards held today at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Parks and Recreation’ actress covered up in a shadowy Marios Schwab gown from the Resort 2014 collection. The lacy number featured a top-to-toe nude lining, which was originally conceived in a black per the lookbook and would have been my preference.

Craftsy-style black ribbon appliques and colourful, bloom-like embellishments crawled up the sleeves and surrounded the high neckline, so I’m glad she wore an updo to prevent any additional clutter.

A JustFab box clutch, along with Rupert Sanderson ‘Hydra’ heels and Neil Lane earrings and statement rings, added more glam factor to the gown.

Front Row @ House of Holland Spring 2014

Front Row @ House of Holland Spring 2014

The catwalk was crammed with colour at the House of Holland Spring 2014 presentation on Saturday during London Fashion Week in England, where several starlets turned out to see the Crayola action.

Alexa Chung: The DJ stepped out in a Marios Schwab army-green frock, accented with black vinyl at the bodice and an abstractly printed skirt. Signature Alexa styling included flat black booties and a box clutch.

Nicola Roberts: Going for a vintage spin, the British recording artist wore a green throwback-print House of Holland ensemble. A shoulder bag, metallic-accented T-strap heels and a teased, rolled half-up, half-down ’do completed the throwback effect.

Ellie Goulding: The singer again grounded her look with leather, this time choosing shiny, black micro-shorts by House of Holland paired with a cozy, text-printed sweater in a saturated purple hue and another pair of black ankle booties. Messy waves and a light-pink lip finished out her word play.

Olivia Wilde in Marios Schwab – Variety Studio at Holt Renfrew

Olivia Wilde in Marios Schwab - Variety Studio at Holt Renfrew

Olivia Wilde made a return visit today to the Variety Studio at Holt Renfrew during the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada.

After her more relaxed outing at the studio, the actress went for a mood of subtle sophistication in Marios Schwab separates from the Spring 2013 and Resort 2013 collections.

The black mesh-embellished, crew-neck sweater lent a smart, schoolgirl-charm to the ensemble, whilst serving as a more casual counterpoint to temper the swirling, sequin-studded layers of the high-shine skirt.

We’ve seen her lovely ombre waves displayed on multiple occasions of late. A different ‘do here would have added another dimension to Olivia’s look.

Rosamund Pike In Marios Schwab – ‘The World’s End’ LA Premiere

Rosamund Pike In Marios Schwab - 'The World's End' LA Premiere

Rosamund Pike took to the red carpet at ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, California yesterday evening for ‘The World’s End’ premiere.

The British actress and the face of L.K. Bennett wore a Marios Schwab Resort 2014 dress with a sheer lace yoke and sleeves and an edgy cut-and-staple effect.

While I love the dress on the model, the nude panel worn under Rosamund’s dress was the first thing to catch my eye, lessening the sexy effect of this high-impact piece.

The barely there makeup trend of the summer continues here, with subtle gold earrings and black Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps completing her look.

I wanna love it, but it ends up being just OK for me. Not BDOTW-worthy. Would you agree?
