McQ Fall 2012

Despite being launched in 2006, this was McQ’s first runway show for Fall 2012 which was held during London Fashion Week on Monday evening.

McQueen’s baby sister had a total revamp for Fall. You could say she’s grown up, as the design team was recently brought in-house under the helm of McQueen’s creative director, Sarah Burton. And it showed.

The sporty street wear and cutesy mini dress we’ve seen on Emma Watson were nowhere to be seen.

With the runway covered in fallen leaves, models stormed – and I mean stormed – the runway wearing military coats with oversized pocket flaps in the highly dramatic show.

We also saw tartan dresses with gothic black-lace sleeves, rich blood-velvet mini dresses with embroidered details, coats worn with leather belts, knit dresses, leather coats with furry sleeves, strapless tulle dresses and coats with velvet leaf-print overlay, and a surprising twist came via the colour tu-tu dresses which stood out against the mostly military-green, blood-red and black colour palette.

Kristen McMenamy closed the show wearing a white tulle gown with leaves embroidered all over it.

During the dramatic finale the room fell dark with a spotlight focus on the model. She looked to the heavens as leaves fell on top of her.

Front Row: Anna Wintour and Salma Hayek

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Rooney Mara, Kristen Stewart, Tilda Swinton and Anna Paquin

Katy Perry In McQ Alexander McQueen – 1 OAK Mirage Hotel & Casino Grand Opening

Katy Perry was at the grand opening of 1 OAK Mirage Hotel & Casino for the GiveLove charity event on Saturday in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The singer, who’s sporting blue hair these days, wore an McQ Alexander McQueen black dress with silver embellished detailing around the neckline.

Her flirty yet edgy dress was teamed with Alexander McQueen platform wedge sandals with a silver moulded metal heel which were first worn by Nicki Minaj.

Kohl-rimmed eyes, pink lips and a blue-tipped manicure completed her look.

Stacy Keibler In McQ Alexander McQueen – Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

Stacy Keibler, aka George Clooney’s plus one for the 2012 awards season, made a guest appearance on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ on Friday.

The actress wore an McQ Alexander McQueen ribbed jersey dress which showcase her super-toned bod.

She opted to go matchy matchy by pairing her dress with gold Jimmy Choo sandals with neon-pink straps.

I love the voluminous, wavy locks which appear to be slightly longer than the last time we saw her.

Large gold hoop earrings and a gorgeous smile completed her look.

I have to say I love the look. She usually looks so nervy on the red carpet next to George so it’s nice to see her looking relaxed on this occasion.

Rihanna In McQ – X Factor UK Performance

Rihanna accepted her American Music Award for Favourite R&B/Soul Album remotely from the UK, where she was performing on the UK X Factor on Sunday night.

The singer wore a cute plaid McQ tartan wool puffball mini dress which we’ve seen twice before on the red carpet courtesy of Emma Watson and Chloe Moretz.

Rihanna styled her dress very different by adding a white sleeveless shirt with a metal-tipped collar.

Black clunky punk shoes with writing scrawled all over them plus a black and white bandana wrapped around her curly locks completed her naughty school girl look.

Who Wore McQ Better? Emma Watson or Chloe Moretz

Emma Watson wore this cute plaid McQ tartan wool puffball mini dress to the GQ Men Of The Year Awards which was held at The Royal Opera House in London early last month.

Her hair and makeup were kept light and youthful as she added a pair of Christian Louboutin Spike pumps to spice up her look.

On the red carpet she wore this dress with an edgy biker jacket.

Chloe Moretz wore the same dress just four days later when she attended The Independent Filmmaker Project during the 2011 Toronto Film Festival.

Her look was styled with black heels worn over black socks.

It’s ironic how Emma, who’s older than Chloe, appears to be younger.

Emma wins for me as I love the tulle tutu she wore under her skirt to give it more volume and give her overall look more personality.
