Jessica Simpson In McQ Alexander McQueen – Out In New York City

Jessica Simpson In McQ Alexander McQueen - Out In New York City

Jessica Simpson made a guest appearance on the ‘Today Show’ on Wednesday (September 23), where she slammed the media for criticizing her post-baby body.

Usually favouring a bandage-style dress, the singer opted for something a lot different, donning a McQ Alexander McQueen mini dress featuring an artfully draped top and straight-cut skirt comprised of two tartan plaid patterns.

McQ is quite a rebellious brand, so I love the idea of mismatched plaids. The military-style belt further toughens up the look, plus it nips Jessica in at the waist.

I have a feeling many will dislike this look, but I found myself liking it from the ankles up. Mostly for the change in direction.

Not only am I over platform shoes, but I also think some cute open-te booties would’ve been better in tune with the spirit of this look. Had she opted for a blazer with this look, perhaps I would’ve given the shoes a pass.

Elisabeth Moss In Carven, McQ Alexander McQueen & David Koma – ‘The One I Love’ New York Promo Tour

Elisabeth Moss In Carven, McQ Alexander McQueen & David Koma - 'The One I Love' New York Promo Tour

The last two days have been busy ones for Elisabeth Moss, who has been in New York City promoting her new movie, ‘The One I Love’.

‘Watch What Happens Live': On Tuesday she wore a Carven Pre-Fall 2014 dress in a rich red hue designed for a structured cut with short sleeves and an A-line skirt. She accessorised her girlie frock with attitude, opting for white python Rupert Sanderson ‘Yves’ pumps.

Monday’s Screening: Later on that evening she attended the screening, opting for a coral pair of Stuart Weitzman pumps which matched the vibrancy of her floral-print body-con McQ Alexander McQueen dress. Letting her honey-coloured hair down on this occasion, she completed the look with a red pout.

Tuesday’s Screening: For the second screening, which appeared to be a more dressy affair, the actress wore a David Koma black and blue halter dress in yet another body-con silhouette, styled with a black cuff and black Casadei pumps.

I really love the David Koma dress of the three for being uber-sexy and modern.

Ashley Madekwe In McQ by Alexander McQueen & Christian Dior – Comic-Con 2014 & Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration

Ashley Madekwe In McQ by Alexander McQueen & Christian Dior - Comic-Con 2014 & Entertainment Weekly's Annual Comic-Con CelebrationAshley Madekwe also made an appearance at Comic-Con International 2014 in San Diego, California, where she was spotted at two events on Saturday (July 26) in two simply chic looks.

Comic-Con Nintendo Lounge: The actress boarded the TV Guide Nintendo Yacht where she kept her look decidedly non-nautical in a McQ by Alexander McQueen Fall 2014 dress with Saint Laurent nude sandals. With the rich royal-purple hue of the frock and its asymmetrical peplum-inspired structure, little else was needed to complete the look, which she made summer appropriate. Long waves and barely-there makeup did the trick.

Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration: For EW’s party at Hard Rock Hotel’s Float, Ashley upped the style ante and gave us another look at Christian Dior’s Spring 2014 collection in this strapless dress worn with Dior shoes. Rather well-suited to the spirit of Comic-Con, the frock’s futuristic shiny metallic silver printed skirt was the main attraction, which Ashley carried off beautifully with a minimal black clutch and a slicked-back ’do.

Sophie Turner In McQ Alexander McQueen – Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Sophie Turner In McQ Alexander McQueen - Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Sophie Turner attended the Glamour Women of the Year Awards held at Berkeley Square Gardens on Tuesday (June 3) in London, England.

I was delighted to see the young ‘Game of Thrones’ actress work a youthful look with a bit of an edge for a refreshing change.

On this occasion she donned a blue, black and red plaid-print McQ Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2014 mini dress with a built-in black leather corset and pleated detail in the skirt.

Her leather accessories were also by McQueen, with a Solange Azagury cuff rounding out the look.

Beauty-wise, she highlighted her blue eyes, opting for a nude lip colour and simple ponytail.

From the ankles up, this was one of my favourites on the night.

Kelly Clarkson In McQ Alexander McQueen – SiriusXM Studios

Kelly Clarkson In McQ Alexander McQueen - SiriusXM Studios

Kelly Clarkson visited the SiriusXM Studios in New York City on Tuesday to promote her Christmas album, ‘Wrapped Up’.

Getting in the festive mood early, the singer jumped on the plaid trend wearing a McQ Alexander McQueen fit-and-flare dress with a deep V-neckline, and exposed zippers snaking around the frock.

While I like the dress on Kelly, the cropped cardi gives the grunge-inspired frock a mumsy feel, and the red Valentino studded ankle-strap sandals are a tad OTT for such a vibrant dress.

Do you like anything about this, or are you thinking of wearing this look for Halloween?
