Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Stéphane Rolland can always be relied upon to serve up sophisticated looks with explosive effects. Hence Lady Gaga is a big fan.

For Spring 2012 the couturier was inspired by the work of kinetic artist Michel Deverne.

On a colour palette of black, white, red and lime green, silhouettes were kept simple with highly sculptural and exaggerated flounces.

He continues to push the envelope with architectural details and daring cut-outs whilst sticking to his signature dramatic trains and metallic gold accents.

Yasmin Le Bon closed the show wearing a blood-red gown.

She was escorted up the runway by two handsome men, not because the designer was worried the supermodel would get mobbed, but to ensure the gown was artfully displayed along the full length of the runway.

The gown, which weighed over 100 lbs, looked heavy, but the supermodel didn’t let it show.

Favourites: White and red cap-sleeve mermaid gown and black gown with gold accents

After joining Mayor Michael Bloomberg in Times Square to kick off the new year celebrations, Lady Gaga was spotted out in New York City.

The singer donned a Stephane Rolland Fall 2010 Couture mini dress with a flowing cape.

Although this was one of my favourite looks from the presentation, I never expected to see it worn as a street-style look – but this is Lady Gaga.

I would rather see it as a street-style look than not see it at all.

The dramatic ivory wool look was even worn with the same bejewelled white tights and opera gloves.

Gaga added Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ white pumps to her look. I’m sure she has these pumps in every colour possible now.

A string of pearls, shades, red lippie and a wavy bob completed her look.

The only thing I find distracting about this look is how she’s dragging a white fur coat along the streets of Manhattan.

Lady Gaga made another huge impression at the 39th International Emmy Awards in New York City last night.

As you know, I’m a huge fan of Stephane Rolland, so I’m excited to see a look from his Fall 2011 Couture collection on the red carpet.

The singer donned a sexy black one-sleeve dress with a bold shoulder and cut-out detail on the thigh.

This detail reveals that Gaga runs very high. From the side we Gaga flashes us her sheer panties and unicorn tattoo. Classy!

Her ashy-blonde hair was swept to one side as she kept the shades and red lips from her previous red carpet appearance last night.

Stéphane Rolland’s Fall 2011 Couture collection was inspired by CAOSHU, a style of Chinese ancestral calligraphy.

The designer is a true artist as the explosive collection took everyone’s breath away which he does season after season as he continues to raise the bar.

We don’t see enough of his highly-dramatic gowns on the red carpet, but seeing them up close its probably because they are more like sculptures which belong in a museum.

The gowns, cocktails dresses and jumpsuits ranged from having billowing capes, hip-high splits; gold tubes or black chop-sticks stacked into an hourglass shape, oversized belts and oversized bows.

The finale gown was most spectacular. The white kimono knit gown with samurai sleeves was made of thick white yarn into intricate mosaic patterns with crystal details embroidered into the yarn. The model looked like she was walking up a steep hill as she struggled to carry the weight of the gown.

Who are Stéphane Rolland clients?

With the Arabic and Russian show notes perched on seats in the front row, I think that answers the question.

Front Row: Olivia Palermo and Carmen Dell’Orefice

Favourites: mermaid gown with an oversized metal and satin bow on the back and yellow gown with black satin detail cascading down the back.

This is more like it Cheryl Cole.

The X Factor US judge goes a very long way to redeem her fashion violation earlier this week.

She stepped out on the red carpet at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival “Habemus Papam” Premiere tonight looking breath-taking wearing a Stéphane Rolland Spring 2011 Couture dress.

We don’t see enough to Stéphane Rolland on the red carpet, but whenever we do it gives us dramatic results.

Her plunging gown with a draped detail from the hip and a gold accent on the waist is accessorized with a gold clutch and a deep rouge lip colour.

The Barbarella hair was slicked back in favour of a neat ponytail.

On this evidence I hope that her UK stylist travels back to the US with Cheryl.
