Ashley Madekwe Front Row @ London Fashion Week

Ashley Madekwe Front Row @ London Fashion Week

Ashley Madekwe has been my fashion darling of London Fashion Week, hot on the strappy heels of Solange Knowles who took the crown for New York.

We’ve seen Ashley looking super slick and sexy at her first-ever Burberry Prorsum show; here is a look at the rest of her looks.

Topshop Unique: Quite the master of the high-low mix, the British actress kick-started her LFW adventure at the Topshop Unique show, where she wore a simple black top with an attention-grabbing forest-green Topshop sequin skirt styled with a Chanel shoulder bag and Charlotte Olympia sandals with a gold platform.

Matthew Williamson: Wearing a fuchsia shirt dress with a tweed wrap plaid skirt from the British designers Pre-Fall 2014 collection, she styled the look with her Burberry Brit leather jacket, that is working its way up my wish list, and her Chanel bag once again.

Whistles: Perhaps my favourite look from her this week (my mind keeps on changing) was her blush-pink strapless Whistles jumpsuit with a fitted bodice and loose-fit tapered pants. This elegant look was styled with Shamballa Jewels earrings and dusky-pink accessories. I love the dark-and-light-pink combo here. She has a keen eye for what works well together.

Which was your favourite look from Ashley?

It’s a Burberry-Whistles tie for me.

Gwyneth Paltrow In Matthew Williamson – Matthew Williamson & Gwyneth Paltrow Host Kids Company Dinner At Aqua Shard

Gwyneth Paltrow In Matthew Williamson - Matthew Williamson & Gwyneth Paltrow Host Kids Company Dinner At Aqua Shard

British fashion designer Matthew Williamson hosted a dinner with Gwyneth Paltrow in aid of the Kids Company charity at Aqua Shard in London yesterday evening.

The dinner saw the unveiling of the unique Christmas tree curated by Matthew Williamson with baubles created by creative luminaries ranging from top artists, actors, interior designers and key figureheads in the fashion industry, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Sienna Miller, Mary J Blige, Zaha Hadid, Tom Dixon, Rankin and Marc Quinn amongst others.

Gwyneth wore an intricately embellished Matthew Williamson long-sleeved gown which perfectly encapsulates the label’s bohemian glamour, though sadly much of it is upstaged by the beautiful Christmas tree.

Poppy Delevingne In Matthew Williamson – Elyse Walker’s Pink Party

Poppy Delevingne In Matthew Williamson - Elyse Walker’s Pink Party

Poppy Delevingne was also at Elyse Walker’s Pink Party, hosted by Anne Hathaway on Saturday evening at Hangar 8 in Santa Monica, California.

Like fellow guest Kate Beckinsale, the socialite-model also picked a non-pink frock, instead plucking a Matthew Williamson Spring 2014 gown straight from the runway.

The sheer black caftan-style dress was embroidered with a flurry of garden flowers and butterflies, which was juxtaposed with the geometrically printed bralette and hot pants worn underneath.

Taking full advantage of the gown’s pockets, Poppy was in no danger of over-styling the look, simply topping off her boho-edgy entrance with a basic high bun and minimal makeup.

Andy Murray In Buberry Tailoring & Kim Sears In Matthew Williamson – Investiture Ceremony

Kim Sears In Matthew Williamson - Investiture Ceremony

Wimbledon champion Andy Murray was all smiles today as he arrived at Buckingham Palace with girlfriend Kim Sears and his parents Willie and Judy, to be presented with an OBE (Order of the British Empire).

The tennis star was receiving the honour from the Duke of Cambridge, who was hosting his first investiture ceremony.

Andy wore a grey two-button notched lapel Burberry Tailoring suit with a striped tie, while Kim continued to show her support for British designers by wearing a Matthew Williamson Pre-Fall 2013 frock featuring bold chevron stripes laced with embroidery which make up much of the silhouette; sitting in panels that contoured and accentuated her figure.

While the majority of her accessories were black, she completed her look with a maroon fascinator with a black floral accent.

You may remember that Nina Dobrev wore this same dress in an orange hue.

Louise Redknapp In Matthew Williamson – 2013 Pride of Britain Awards

Louise Redknapp In Matthew Williamson - 2013 Pride of Britain Awards

Louise Redknapp continued her support for British designers on the red carpet at the Pride of Britain Awards held at Grosvenor House in London yesterday evening.

The TV presenter/singer wore a Matthew Williamson Fall 2013 folk-inspired jacquard sleeveless mini dress with a geometric pattern and bold floral print.

Picking out the metallic hue, adding a silver-plated clutch was a wise move; however, she sadly failed miserably in the footwear department.
