Mulberry’s 40th Birthday Party

Mulberry ?’s NY.

Following the opening of their brand new flagship store at 134 Spring Street last Tuesday, they celebrated their 40th birthday party by throwing a lavish bash on the roof top of Skylight West on Monday night.

We sipped margaritas and scoffed down the canapés before taking to the multi-coloured lit dance-floor to rock out to Kasabian who played a 45 minute set.

A balloon artist made us animal shaped balloons and hats which was a fun addition to the party.

My friend from New York Daily News and I set about looking for the celebs at the party.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The actress quietly sat in the corner looking effortless and serene wearing a Mulberry Tille wrap dress from the Fall 2011 collection. She added a simple black blazer to her print dress and carried a Mulberry ‘Effie’ satchel from the Resort 2012 collection.

Solange Knowles: The face of Rimmel cosmetics is one of the nicest celebrities I have ever met. She’s beautiful and happy to talk to randoms like me. She wore a Mary Katrantzou Vienouas silk-georgette reversible shirt dress with Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte gold wedges whilst carrying a Mulberry ‘Fox Lock’ bag. She was impressed that I was able to name all her pieces (girl, this is what I do). I was stumped on her jewelery which she told me was by Lia Sophia.

Rose Byrne: As you know I have a mild large girl crush on Rose Byrne. The Australian actress was glowing wearing a Mulberry Resort 2012 gold pleat dress. I love the pop of colour via her aqua blue earrings. A white Mulberry mini ‘Taylor’ bag from the Resort 2012 collection and nude pumps I wasn’t too fond of completed her look.

Heathrow Style: Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Roland Mouret, Smythe & Mulberry

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge arrived at London’s Heathrow Airport to board a Royal Canadian Air Force with her husband Prince William this morning.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be traveling to Ottawa for their first overseas tour as a married couple.

The 11 day tour will take them to Canada and then on to California.

Catherine opted her favourite colour – navy blue – for her arrival.

She wore a Roland Mouret Manon silk and cotton-blend dress with a Smythe one button blazer.

Her all navy look continued to a Mulberry Polly Push lock shoulder bag and navy Manolo Blahnik pumps.

I hope she takes the fun with fashion Michelle Obama approach over the next few days.

11 days of blazers and pencil dresses won’t be so exciting.

Stay tuned.

Naomie Harris In Mulberry – WTA Tour Pre-Wimbledon Party

Naomie Harris attended the WTA Tour Pre-Wimbledon Party in London last night.

The British actress also wore a British designer (I’m sensing a theme) as she opted for a Mulberry Pre-Fall 2011 dress.

Her bronze pleated dress was paired with gold strappy sandals.

I was especially pleased to see she opted for sandals considering her previous footwear choice earlier this week.

Altogether this is a much better look.

Even the suitcase gets a pass on this occasion.

Sidewalk Style: Dita von Teese In Mulberry

This is heaven for me. Dita von Teese wearing my favourite colour: electric blue.

The Burlesque star proves that she always looks perfect, even when caught off-guard whilst parking her car around the back of Ralph Lauren in LA yesterday.

Her Mulberry Spring 2011 pencil dress with a twisted neckline was accented with a same electric blue runway belt.

I love Dita’s accessories which included Alexander McQueen square toe pumps and a mirrored box bag.

Even during Cannes week I’m still shouting for this to be a BDOTW contender.

Mulberry Coachella BBQ & Pool VIP Party

Mulberry Creative Director Emma Hill and the Mulberry team headed to sunny Palm Springs, California to host an exclusive barbeque and pool party yesterday at the Parker Palm Springs.

The celebrity guests were able to view the Mulberry Fall 2011 collection, before taking some time out from Coachella festivities to laze around the Gene Autry Pool, where Mulberry towels lay invitingly on sun-loungers and beach balls bobbed in the water.

Alexa Chung: The camera shy British TV presenter was spotted lounging poolside wearing a 3.1 Phillip Lim nude embellished dress.

Nicole Richie: Surprisingly I don’t get any boho vibe from Nicole. It looks like she’s truly put that look behind her now. She opted for a vibrant Mulberry printed blouse with denim shorts. Oversized shades, House of Harlow Veronkia strappy wedges and a Mulberry Heritage Bayswater satchel completed her look.

Camilla Belle: No surprises to see Camilla at this event. The actress wore a Mulberry petticoat white blouse with denim shorts. A black Mulberry Mini Carter shoulder bag plus orange Sergio Rossi ‘Cleo’ sandals which matched the trim of her sunglasses completed her pool party look.Read More…

Karen Gillan In Mulberry – “Doctor Who” Season 6 New York Premiere

Karen Gillan joined her cast-mates in New York yesterday for the Season 6 Premiere of “Doctor Who.”

You know how I feel about scruffy looking boots with pretty dresses, but for some reason I love the contrast with her Mulberry Spring 2011 dress.

Mostly because there aren’t any pretensions to being ‘cool,’ which you get from the likes of Alexa Chung.

Karen twisted English plum dress was accented with a matching belt, pink lips and smoky eyes.

I’m loving her half up, half down hair do.
