No. 21 Spring 2012

Thanks to Diane Kruger, Zoe Saldana and several top editors, I have become slightly obsessed with No. 21.

After looking for it everywhere during New York Fashion Week, I was excited to learn yesterday that it’s stocked in Fenwicks on Bond Street.

The No. 21 Spring 2012 collection combined feminine and masculine pieces to present a totally wearable collection.

Alessandro Dell’Acqua’s masculine looks included a blue-collared light blue shirt with tapered pants. An oversized top was paired with blue embellished shorts. A sweater was paired with silk boxers and we also saw printed pyjama-like ensembles.

The sexy feminine looks included a cropped knit sweater layered over a blouse which was paired with a check pencil skirt. Bralets were paired with pencil skirts alongside knee-length printed skirts, striped cardigans and a selection of dresses ranging from daywear to evening wear.

The colour palette consisted of light blue, black, white, camel and bronze.

Key accessories included long chains with leather pendants, aqua drop earrings, gold and silver embellished pumps and iPad-thin clutches in plaid and python.

I loved that they played my favourite song during the finale: Pat Benatar’s “Love Is A Battlefield.”

Favourites: Blue top with blue sequin shorts and plaid skirt paired with layered top

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Kate Bosworth, Zoe Saldana, Ginnifer Goodwin, Megan Fox and Camilla Belle

Zoe Saldana In No. 21 – Nas’ 38th Birthday Party

Zoe Saldana attended Nas’ 38th birthday party held at Catch in New York City on Wednesday.

The gorgeous actress chose a sexy No. 21 Resort 2012 look for the occasion.

Her seductive black dress features a built-in nude peek-a-boo bra and thin spaghetti straps.

Zoe opted not to wear the belt the dress was originally paired with and accessorized with black strappy Sergio Rossi ‘Profile’ heels and a black clutch.

Pretty gold jewelry including a Jennifer Meyer ‘Z’ charm necklace, Irene Neuwirth earrings and a diamond cocktail ring added some interesting detail to her ensemble.

I love this super sophisticated look on Zoe, especially her jewelry.

She completed her look with a chic updo, brown smoky eyeshadow and deep red nails.

Giovanna Battaglia Loves Her No.21 Printed Blouse & Cropped Pants

During Milan Fashion Week I spotted Giovanna Battaglia outside the Gucci Fall 2011 presentation wearing this gorgeous No.21 Spring 2011 printed blouse with matching cropped pants.

I loved the look, and it seems like the freelance stylist for W Magazine can’t get enough of the look either.

Giovanna has gone on to wear this several times; most recently last night at the Bottega Veneta fragrance launch party in New York City.

On these two occasions she’s opted pair her look with colourful heels.

Orange and gold Prada sandals worked in Milan. Purple and gold Fendi heels were the preferred choice for last night.

Both perfectly complement her look.

Brooklyn Decker In No.21 – 2011 MTV Movie Awards

Most Disappointing Award
Amanda Bynes is the only person stopping Brooklyn Decker from being the worst dressed at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards tonight.

Brooklyn has worked really hard to give us some great red carpet moments, then this sack of a dress ruins all that hard work.

I really loved the No. 21 Pre-Fall 2011 collection, but this dress does nothing for Brooklyn.

Not a damn thing.

I can’t even digest the shoes, because I’m already choking on the dress.

Diane Kruger In No. 21 – Pieds Nus Sur Des Limaces Berlin Premiere

Tonight in Germany, Diane Kruger walked the red carpet at the Cinema Paris for the “Pieds Nus Sur Des Limaces” Berlin Premiere.

The German actress looked stunning for her homecoming.

She delighted the crowds wearing a No. 21 Fall 2011 pink lace dress.

You may remember she wore a similar lemon shorter Pre-Fall version back in February this year.

Both are gorgeous, but this look get extra points as Diane added some sexy Brian Atwood ‘ Felini’ turquoise peep-toes for that added pop of colour I really appreciate.

Marcel waves, hooped earrings and a Raven Kauffman Couture ‘Gioia’ sea clutch completed her look.

Do you think this is BDOTW worthy?

No. 21 Fall 2011

Alessandro Dell’Acqua’s No. 21 collections are receiving a lot of celebrity attention at the moment, so I was keen to check out the new Fall 2011 collection.

The sweet yet sexy collection would shift from blouses and pencil skirts to dangerous plunging necklines on a peachy, buttercup, metallic silver, pink, white, black and grey colour palette.

We saw lady-like secretary dresses, shimmering sweaters, sweater dresses, plunging necklines, a pastel blouse paired with metallic pencil skirt, cute cardi’s, cigarette pants, boxy feathered jackets and lace dresses.

The feathered and laces look caught my attention. The feathered looks had plenty of movement on the runway, whilst the lace looks had a sultry innocence about them.

This was a beautifully simple collection with wearability, sex appeal and personality.

Key accessories included orange earrings and t-bar pointy pumps.

Favourites: White short sleeved dress with feathered skirt and lemon lace dress with pink waistband

Diane Kruger In No. 21 – Glamour March 2011 Cover Party

Last night in New York City Glamour US Magazine threw a party to celebrate their March 2011 issue which features Diane Kruger on the cover.

The German actress looked gorgeous wearing a lemon No. 21 Pre-Fall 2011 dress which is very Rodarte-Nina Ricci-eqse.

Her embroidered lace dress with asymmetrical layers was paired with nude Brian Atwood pumps.

I love her romantic lace dress, but I’m not really keen on the heavy eye make-up with such a pretty spring-like dress.
