Marios Schwab Fall 2012

Marios Schwab is known for unique pieces with a rock n’ roll edge, so I was surprised to see a lot of ladylike pieces for his Fall 2012 collection.

Much like Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2012 presentation, the hats took centre stage.

They were asymmetrically perched on top of the models’ heads, which is probably why he called the Marios Schwab woman a ‘voyeur’ as she’s obscured and not fully in view.

Wearable chic separates and streamlined dresses moved on to more daring looks with revealing laser-cut floral details – no doubt lined before they hit the red carpet – sexy leather trenches, low-cut gowns and nude embellished gowns with a coloured chiffon overlay.

With Swarovski Elements adorning the final look, I’m hoping it has done enough to be Oscar bound.

Front Row: Alexa Chung and Leigh Lezark

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Michelle Williams, Amanda Seyfried, Kristen Stewart, Alexa Chung, Madonna, Angelina Jolie, Keira Knightley, Andrea Riseborough and Felicity Jones

Marios Schwab is just one of many talented designers due to launch at the British Designers Collective boutique which will open soon at Bicester Village.

More news on this to follow.

Andrea Riseborough In Marios Schwab – ‘W.E’ London Premiere

Andrea Riseborough was a vision of perfection once again as she stepped out for the ‘W.E.’ London premiere.

For the London Film Festival premiere, the British actress wore Christian Dior, but on this occasion she opted for a more modern Marios Schwab dress from the Fall 2011 collection.

Her burgundy silk-satin dress with a chiffon underlay was paired with a pair of striped pumps.

The rest of her accessories included a Jimmy Choo ‘Latoya’ clutch and Chopard jewels.

As usual she’s radiant, graceful and flawless.

Emily Blunt In Marios Schwab – ‘Salmon Fishing In The Yemen’ Palm Springs Film Festival Opening Night Premiere

Emily Blunt, who has enjoyed her last few red carpet outings with husband John Krasinski, arrived solo on the red carpet for the 23rd Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival.

She was there to attend the opening night premiere of her latest movie, ‘Salmon Fishing In The Yemen’.

Looking pretty in pink, the British actress wore a Marios Schwab Spring 2012 dress.

The designers’ lattice-constructed dress, with a flipped panel which draws in the waist, has also been favoured by Rebecca Hall and Amanda Seyfried.

They both selected black, so I’m thankful Emily opted for the pink colour.

Emily’s dress was teamed with pewter accessories, which matches her nail colour, but it’s that fuchsia-pink lip colour that I simply adore.

It would’ve been easy to play it really safe with this look, but thankfully Emily didn’t take that option.

Amanda Seyfried In Marios Schwab – ‘In Time’ Paris Photocall

Amanda Seyfried and Justin Timberlake are now in France, where they have attended the Paris photocall for their new movie ‘In Time’ earlier today.

The blonde starlet opted for a Marios Schwab Spring 2012 dress, which is our second look at this collection within 24 hours and our third look at it in total.

As we’ve seen this net overlay three times now, I would hope celebs pick something different from this collection in future.

I would hate for this collection to be classed as one-note.

Sergio Rossi pin-heel black pumps and her trademark glossy locks provided the finishing touches to her cap sleeve dress.

Of those who’ve worn this Marios Schwab Spring 2012 collection, Kristen’s is my favourite.

Who do you favour?

Rebecca Hall, Kristen Stewart or Amanda Seyfried?

Kristen Stewart In Marios Schwab – Hand And Footprint Ceremony At Grauman’s Chinese Theatre

Kristen Stewart was joined by her Twilight co-stars, Robert Pattinson (in Armani) and Taylor Lautner, for the Hand and Foot Print Ceremony at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood this afternoon.

The actress wore a Marios Schwab Spring 2012 dress, which is our second look from this collection to hit the red carpet.

Her nude halter dress with a Swarovski crystal net overlay and patent leather detailing was paired with what looks like checkered Keds.

I was shocked at first, but the sneakers are clearly for the footprint part of the ceremony.

This is a very typical look for KStew, short with an edge. I’m not at all surprised that she shortened and lined the dress.

Her longer-than-usual brunette hair was swept to one side and she opted for minimal makeup.

She looked to be having a lot of fun at this event. Her best accessory was that gorgeous smile.

Kristen arrived wearing black Brian Atwood ‘Marcella’ velvet pumps with a pin heel.

Rebecca Hall In Marios Schwab – ‘The Awakening’ London Film Festival Premiere

Rebecca Hall is the latest star to brave a cold night in the capital wearing a Spring 2012 dress.

This evening she walked the red carpet at the Vue West End for the London Film Festival premeire for ‘The Awakening’.

My first thought was that Rebecca is a bit too vanilla to pull off this Marios Schwab Spring 2012 halter mini dress, especially with the runway shoes.

But on reflection I happy that she wore the runway shoes instead Brian Atwood ‘Maniac’ pumps – I think we’ve seen enough of those today.

The only thing that this look really needed was a super sleek high ponytail to give it an edge.

Felicity Jones In Marios Schwab – ‘Like Crazy’ Philadelphia Film Festival Screening

Felicity Jones attended the ‘Like Crazy’ screening during the opening night of the 20th annual Philadelphia Film Festival at Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Pennsylvania yesterday.

The British actress is quickly clocking up her red carpet mileage, making her second red carpet outing in a week wearing a Marios Schwab dress.

Her light pink dress has a curved gauze inset strip that has a wave design over the chest revealing what you are suspecting: she’s not wearing a bra.

It wouldn’t be possible to wear a bra with this dress, but she remains on the right side of tasteful.

I love the slick-back ponytail and the darker makeup which perfectly pulls the whole look together.

Slightly heavy Barbara Bui black satin peep-toes completed her look.

You might recognise this dress as Liz Hurley wore it on ‘Gossip Girl’ with a lower scooped neckline – of course.
