Marion Cotillard In McQ Alexander McQueen – The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

Marion Cotillard delights by stepping away from the Dior side of the closet to wear something more playful on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ on Friday evening.

The French actress, who made a guest appearance to promote her latest movie ‘Rust and Bone’, wore a McQ Fall 2012 dress.

Her navy and forest-green dress is the perfect blend of classic and contemporary, fusing traditional tartan check evoking fall’s heritage mood, and the sharp feminine cut – featuring a dropped waist and a pleated skirt.

Marion styled her look with the black leather Victorian belt with a gold chain we saw on the McQ Fall 2012 runway and lady-like black Jimmy Choo patent pumps.

With her hair rolled and pinned on both sides, Marion completed her look with a matte pink lip colour.

Rita Ora In McQ Alexander McQueen – 2012 MOBO Awards

Rita Ora donned a second look which she wore to collect her ‘Best Newcomer’ Award on Saturday evening at the 2012 MOBO Awards, held at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England.

The singer gave us our second look at the floral delights from the McQ McQueen Fall 2012 collection within a week.

Her black tulle tutu dress with colourful floral appliqués was styled with the same gold Dsquared² strappy sandals she wore on the red carpet.

Rita styled her look for a gold thin belt, instead of the utilitarian black leather belt the model wore on the runway, plus a selection of gold jewels.

I’m sure many of you will share my disappointment with the limp tulle neckline, but sometimes it isn’t possible to recreate the runway magic, or maybe this was deliberate in this case as not to obscure Rita’s face the whole night.

You may remember that Victoria Justice wore a similar dress back in May to the 2012 Met Gala.

Hai Qing In McQ Alexander McQueen – L’Officiel 2012 China Elegance Awards

Hai Qing also attended the L’Officiel 2012 China Elegance Awards at the National Aquatic Center in Beijing, China, last week.

Opting for a feminine look with an edge, the actress wore a McQ Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 look.

I love her sharp black velvet cut-out blazer accented with a black leather belt, but I love her colourful black tulle floral appliqué skirt more.

Hai’s geometric black-and-white Bulgari clutch is quite the head scratcher with this look. I think that with so much detail on the skirt, the option to stick with a simple black clutch would’ve sufficed don’t you think?

Simple black Christian Louboutin peep-toes completed her look.

McQ Alexander McQueen Opens London Flagship Store

On Saturday I headed to Dover Street in London to see the newly opened McQ Alexander McQueen flagship store.

The store, which is spread over three floors covering 3,000 square feet, offers two floors of women’s wear and the menswear in the basement; it encompasses runway pieces, commercial pieces, footwear and accessories.

As you walk into the store, there is a digital table to your right which allows you to view the runway shows and look books plus there’s a feature which enables you to email pictures to yourself or friends.

The most fun to be had was the gesture-controlled mirrors on the first and lower ground floors. If you wanted to get your friends’ opinions on your McQ look, you can photograph yourself and then share with friends via social media channels or email.

There were so many pieces in store which I wanted to buy. In the end I took home the McQ Alexander McQueen lace ‘Griffin’ leggings which I can’t wait to wear with an oversized shirt and some heeled booties.

Check out the McQ Alexander McQueen store which is located at 14 Dover Street, London.

Saoirse Ronan In McQ Alexander McQueen – ‘Byzantium’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Saorise Ronan opted for florals for the premiere of ‘Byzantium’ during the 2012 Toronto Film Festival.

The Irish actress wore a McQ Alexander McQueen dress with Eddie Borgo jewels for the event.

The panelling at the neckline and bust and slight peplum detail on Saorise’s dress are exquisite, but her hair is a bit messy for my tastes.

You can buy Saoirse’s Ferragamo sandals from Luisa via Roma and Bloomingdale’s.
