Who Wore Mary Katrantzou Better? Cameron Silver or Henry Holland

Cameron Silver, owner of vintage emporium Decades Inc., wore a colourful floral Mary Katrantzou suit, inspired by her Spring 2012 womenswear collection, whilst attending the LAXART Ball Of Artists Event in Beverly Hills, California, back in January.

He wore his custom-made suit with an Alexis Mabille peacock-feathered butterfly bow tie and Christian Louboutin ‘Havana Trash’ shoes.

On Monday, designer Henry Holland posted a picture on his Vogue blog wearing the same suit.

He opted for a black shirt to Cameron’s white, which works equally well.

I like that Cameron wasn’t afraid to go a few steps further with this look with his bow tie and shoes, so he wins for me.

Mary Katrantzou Fall 2012

For Fall 2012, Mary Katrantzou was inspired by everyday items: wrist watches, coat hangers, typewriter keyboards, spoons, and most notably No.2 HB pencils.

You may have had to do a double take, but these are items which make up her vibrant prints for the season.

The most impressive thing about the pencils is that they were embroidered and shaped onto the skirt rather than being a print. I would imagine it would be difficult to sit in, and therefore, when this look goes into production, I’m sure it will be a print.

Mary gave us architectural shapes on a colour palette of canary yellow, emerald green, ruby red and ocean blue, alongside light chiffon pieces with floaty ruffled skirts.

I don’t recall Mary presenting knits in the past, so as someone who loves a sweater dress, I was excited to see these pieces presented with large turtle necks.

Funnel neck coats, beaded pants, off-the-shoulder sculptural tops, capes, ruffle-neck long-sleeve dresses and a long-sleeve gown were presented.

With more and more celebs falling in love with Mary Katrantzou, I’m sure we will be seeing these pieces on the red carpet soon.

I just hope they pair the looks with the gorgeous coloured Christian Louboutin pumps and ankle boots we saw at the show.

Front Row: Alexa Chung and Anna Wintour

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Leelee Sobieski, Leigh Lezark, Keira Knightley, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Tilda Swinton and Rihanna

Who Wore Mary Katrantzou for Topshop Better? Poppy Delevigne or Alesha Dixon

On Monday, Poppy Delevigne gave the Mary Katranzou for Topshop collection its red carpet debut at the 2012 Elle Style Awards in London.

She teamed her colourful dress with a bell-shaped skirt with beige lace-up shoes.

The collection launched and sold-out today, but not before Alesha Dixon got her hands on the same dress.

She wore her dress to the Birmingham Britian’s Got Talent auditions earlier today.

Even though she teamed her shoes white pumps, which I despise, I think the dress suits her better and I love the addition of the pink lip colour to complement the print.

Alesha wins for me.

Poppy Delevingne In Mary Katrantzou for Topshop – 2012 Elle Style Awards

Poppy Delevingne took to the red carpet this evening at The Savoy Hotel in London wearing a very summery confection for the 2012 Elle Style Awards.

The model gives us our first look from the Mary Katrantzou for Topshop collection.

This ‘Pheasant’ dress with its structured skirt is awash with vivid, vibrant and intricate florals and opulent serigraph-style print details including Chinese art swirls.

I’m glad she wore her hair and opted for neutral makeup to ensure all the focus stayed on her gorgeous dress.

Beige lace-up sandals completed her look.

The Mary Katrantzou for Topshop collection, including this £350 dress, goes on sale February 17, so mark you calendars.

Cameron Silver In Mary Katrantzou – LAXART Ball OF Artists Event

Cameron Silver, owner of vintage emporium Decades Inc., attended the LAXART Ball OF Artists Event in Beverly Hills, California last night following a short visit to Paris for Couture Week.

He joins a growing list of men like Kanye West and the late Michael Jackson, who have taken womenswear pieces and rocked them as menswear.

On this occasion he wore a custom Mary Katrantzou Spring 2012 multi-coloured floral print suit.

I love the added twist on his look as his pants have a two-tone floral print which blends from his blazer.

Cameron added quirky touches such as his Alexis Mabille peacock feather butterfly bow tie and Christian Louboutin Havana Trash shoes to complete his look.

Best New Red Carpet Designer of 2011 – Mary Katrantzou

The designer Mary Katrantzou isn’t new by any means, but the newfound love she’s receiving from celebrities is.

She was a well-kept secret by fashion insiders like Anna Dello Russo, but the secret is out now and popping up all over the red carpet.

Keira Knightley donned one of her signature print dresses during Venice Film Festival and demand for Katrantzou dresses have sky rocketed ever since.

Whilst some celebs found it tricky to find a complementary heel for the vivid prints and therefore stuck to plain black pumps, others like Gillian Jacobs opted for an interesting chartreuse hue, whilst Danielle Lineker and Keira Knightley opted for nude.

Dianna Agron In Mary Katrantzou – NYLON December/January Issue Party

It was round two for this Mary Katrantzou gorgeous jewel tree floral print last night at the NYLON December/January issue party held at the Writer’s Room in LA.

Cover girl Dianna Agron wore the short-sleeve version of this Fall 2011 dress with black Rodarte for Opening Ceremony crochet lace up booties to give the look a mod feel.

This toughening up of the look was contradicted with a very girlie hairstyle, as Dianna added a jewelled hairband to her beautiful updo.

Sans footwear, this was an utterly gorgeous look.

The hairband was a stroke of genius and for a change I really love her makeup.

Danielle Lineker wore the long-sleeve version of this dress late last month.

Dianna wears a Christopher Kane Resort 2012 neon-pink dress with white lace raglan sleeves on the cover of NYLON.


You can purchase Dianna’s Mary Katrantzou short sleeve dress from Luisa via Roma.
