School Run Style: Yummy Mummies

Despite having so much to catch up on from the weekend, I just had to share this trio of yummy mummies on the school run this morning in London and New York.

Elle MacPherson: My current girl crush of the moment has the supermodel/yummy mummy crown. She looked gorgeous teaming a simple black cardi with red hot Isabel Marant cropped leather pants and Isabel Marant bow front kitten heels which were both from the Fall 2010 collection.

Claudia Schiffer: The German model may not have been going for all out glamour, but she oozed an effortless off-duty style whilst dropping her kids off to school. She becomes the latest celeb to fall in love with the Gucci ‘Snaffle Bit’ Bag behind, Heidi Klum, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kylie Minogue and Florence Welch. Claudia is also following in the very trendy footsteps of Gwyneth Paltrow who has been seen frequently wearing these nude Sergio Rossi ‘Maori’ wedge booties.

Sarah Jessica Parker: Was spotted taking young James to school this morning wearing an array of colours. She sported a biscuit coloured oversized sweater which she paired with Rag & Bone skinny jeans. Stone ballet flats, a fuchsia pink scarf and a Fendi ‘Silvana’ top handle bag completed her colourful look.

They all have oversized shades in common.

Intermix Hosts Rag & Bone Cocktail Party

Rag & Bone’s David Neville threw a party at Intermix on Robertson Blvd. yesterday inviting several gorgeous celebrity party guests.

Drew Barrymore was easily the coolest chic at the party wearing a Rag & Bone vintage navy Husser jacket.

A grey vest and black tapered pants were styled with her favourite YSL Trib Too’s, a chunky necklace and a baker boy hat.

Anna Kendrick wore a Rag & Bone 42nd Street blazer.  The interesting twist is that the blazer has sheer sleeves.

A white top, black sandals and Rag & Bone Kelly green skinny jeans complete her casual chic look.

Whilst most guests wore pants, Malin Akerman opted for a short and sexy Rag & Bone Hadleigh dress.

Her vertical striped dress with a mesh overlay was paired with Chanel peep-toes.Read More…

Cheryl Cole In Rag & Bone – London Heathrow Airport

Cheryl Cole was spotted headed to LA via London’s Heathrow Airport this week.

The former UK X Factor judge hasn’t been officially announced as the new X Factor US judge, but that hasn’t stopped the UK press saying she’s got the job.

I for one will be happy she’s no longer on the UK show because the format has become tired and boring just like her style was on the show. I was honestly not planning to watch it this year.

She arrived at Heathrow to a paparazzi scrum wearing taupe J Brand jeans which I also own, Elizabeth and James booties, a Rag & Bone Leigh wool and leather safari jacket from the Resort 2011 collection and a Stella McCartney Falabella Bag from the Spring 2011 collection.

I love this look from head-to-toe. She’s wearing my favourite colour combinations.

I wouldn’t have paired the look with the floral bag, but it breaks up the look from being too one tone.

I would’ve also added a belt to the jacket, so top marks from me.

You can buy Cheryl’s Rag & Bone Leigh wool and leather safari jacket from Net-A-Porter US or Net-A-Porter International.

Jennifer Lopez For Elle US February 2010

Jennifer Lopez showed off her stunning figure on the cover of February’s Elle Magazine wearing a rather risqué cut out Gucci dress, sans bra!

Throughout the shoot, which was photographed by Tom Munro, she also wears pieces from Alexander Wang, Moschino and Rag & Bone.

She talks openly during her interview about getting older, being betrayed and her rom com movies.

Here are some extracts from the interview but you can read more of the article at Elle.com

On competing with twenty-something pop idols: “This is what I do—what, because I have kids and a husband now I’m not supposed to be me? I’m a more heightened me if anything. Hyper J.Lo. Everything I wanted before, I want twice as much now. And that doesn’t mean material things; it means to explore more, to think more. Being an artist doesn’t start because you’re 21, and it doesn’t end because you’re 51. You are who you are until the day you die.”

“You Know You Want It” Publication Celebration

I’m split when it comes to Leighton Meester wearing this Louis Vuitton Spring 2010 ensemble.

I love the fact that she tried to make the look her own, but I also loved how this look was presented on the runway.

Her grey top and matching Balenciaga heels give this look a more grown up feel, whereas runway look has a cute girlie feel to it.

Of course I wouldn’t expect Leighton to wear this look with the stockings and clogs.

Yet I remain torn.

What are your feelings on this look?

When it comes to Blake Lively many of your comments contain the question “boobs or legs?”

On this occasion she put both away, but I’m sure many of you will notice that her bra is peeking out of her shirt.

Her look also consisted of a black Nonoo Lyons Fall 2009 tailcoat, what appear to be black shorts and Stella McCartney thigh-high perforated boots from the Fall 2009 collection.

Both girls sported different looks, but I think I prefer Blake’s as I feel like she put this look together herself.

Even when she wears an edgier designer Michelle Trachtenberg doesn’t falter from her prim lady-like look wearing a navy Rag & Bone Spring 2010 dress, with a silk bow tied around her waist.

Tights, black patent pumps, a Chanel clutch complete her look.

Just once I’d like to see her try an edgier look.

Jessica Szohr showed off her sexy Alice + Olivia LBD with mesh back to full effect.

A gold Hunting Season python clutch and black patent Alejandro Ingelmo heels complete the look.

Kristen Bell’s Oscar de la Renta Resort 2010 navy blue and white embroidered dress works very well because she has kept accessories to a minimum.

Laila Ali is defying the myth that sportswomen can’t look elegant and feminine on the red carpet, by wearing a breath-taking raspberry silk chiffon one shoulder Tadashi Shoji gown with floral strap detail.

I always wondered how this Alberta Ferretti Fall 2009 chartreuse gown with a black beaded embroidered overlay would look on the red carpet.

Natascha McElhone keeps the look very simple, yet I just can’t fall in love with this look as stunning as the detail is.

Kate was equally chic in a black chiffon top and wide-legged white pants.
