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.

Rihanna In McQ Alexander McQueen – Out In London

Rihanna was spotted leaving her hotel in London yesterday afternoon, sporting her favourite Gucci USA GG Flag collection Boston bag.

The singer toned down her look, as she was headed to River Island’s HQ for a meeting to discuss her collaboration with the high-street brand.

RiRi wore all black save for her striking gold statement necklace, bold red lips and her McQ Alexander McQueen leather biker jacket.

The dark-green hue was appropriate for a dismal day, weather-wise, in the capital.

As you would expect from any McQueen piece, this urban leather jacket has something a bit extra with asymmetrical zipper details, McQ Alexander McQueen-branded studs and one flap and popper pocket.

Nikki Reed In McQ Alexander McQueen – Carmen Steffens West Coast Flagship Store Opening

Nikki Reed attended the Carmen Steffens West Coast Flagship store opening at the Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

The ‘Twilight’ star wore a McQ Alexander McQueen dark green cable-print ruffle dress for the occasion.

On this rare occasion I love the look from head-to-toe.

The fringed booties add a fun element to her look, as does her yellow Rebecca Minkoff ‘Spring’ lizard embossed minaudière for a glorious pop of colour.

It’s rare that I get excited about a Nikki Reed red carpet look, but there is a first time for everything.

Luscious waves and a glossy lip colour completed her look.

Anna Paquin In McQ Alexander McQueen – Film Independent At LACMA Presents ‘Margaret’

Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer were spotted headed to The Bing Theatre for the Film Independent at LACMA Presentation of ‘Margaret’ on Tuesday evening.

The ‘True Blood’ actress is still donning one of her favourite designers of maternity wear.

Dressed in an McQ by Alexander McQueen x-ray printed and stretch jersey dress with a body-hugging silhouette and cap sleeves, Anna amped up the look with a selection of silver statement jewels.

Jimmy Choo accessories including a black tube clutch and black suede pumps were added to her look.

The mother-to-be completed her look with barely there makeup.
