Lady Gaga In Stéphane Rolland Couture – 39th International Emmy Awards

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 Fall 2011 Couture

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.

Who I Would Like To See Wearing This Collection: Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Tilda Swinton, Eva Green and Zoe Saldana

Cheryl Cole In Stephane Rolland Couture – 2011 Cannes Film Festival “Habemus Papam” Premiere

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.

2011 Hong Kong Film Awards

I have been waiting for a look from the Stéphane Rolland Spring 2011 Couture collection to be showcased on the red carpet ever since I attended the show back in January.

My wait is finally over as Miriam Yeung attended the 2011 Hong Kong Film Awards last night wearing an amazing sculptural gown.

I surprised at how this gown with a gold detail on the hip doesn’t appear to overwhelm her. She totally owns it and looks very comfortable.

Whilst I’m happy to see this look on the red carpet, I’m sad that this now mean there’s less chance of Cate or Tilda wearing it.

Thankfully there are many more amazing pieces from this collection for them to choose from.Read More…

Stephane Rolland Spring 2011 Couture

My second show today was the Stephane Rolland Spring 2011 Couture presentation.

This is my 3rd season attending a Stephane Rolland show and each time is more beautiful than the last.

His attention to detail is second to none.

The powerful collection mixed structure with metallic finishing touches.

The necklines ranged from plunging to funnel plus the details were either gold hardware or a jewel embellishment at the waist, neck or shoulder.

The colour palette was more suited to Fall with burnt orange, mustard, chocolate, black and olive green, but he also presented a lot of white and nude looks.

I love the draping detail from the hips, the capes which seem to be his signature and the Princess Leia shoulders. It seems like couturiers aren’t willing to let the bold shoulder trend go just yet.

Instead of the usual white wedding gown, Stephane sent down a model wearing a fireball orange plunging jumpsuit with a cape that billowed as she stormed the runway.

This collection screamed classic elegance with touches of modernity.

Favourites: White funnel neck white dress with what looks like Maple syrup dripping down one side and the orange structured dress above

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Tilda Swinton, Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba, Diane Lane, Kyra Sedgwick, Helen Mirren and Freida Pinto
