The Blonds Fall 2011

When it comes to a Fashion Show, The Blonds know how to entertain.

The presentation started with a pumping video which showed the oriental inspiration for the collection.

After that we were entertained by two Chinese dragons who hopped and jumped down the runway nuzzling up to front row guest.

After the Chinese dragon performance every look that took to the runway was Asian inspired.

We saw a corset accented with giant chopsticks, a Ying and Yang dress which was paired with one black and one white Christian Louboutin Pigalle heel, embellished corsets with fringed details and a kimono-like gowns in a rainbow of colours with spiky corset belts.

Key accessories included Louboutin heels and Cleopatra-style afro glitter wigs.

Anna Dello Russo was in the front row, so don’t be surprised if you see her wearing pieces from this collection during Milan and Paris Fashion Week.

You can see the whole collection on NYMag.com.

Nicki Minaj In The Blonds – “Moment 4 Life” Music Video

Last week MTV premiered Nicki Minaj’s new video for her latest single “Moment 4 Life.”

The flamboyant singer wore a look from The Blonds Spring 2011 collection.

The turquoise goddess chiffon gown with crystal accents played perfectly into the Cinderella themed music video.

The video starts with Nicki wearing the chiffon gown, with a black wig and a bejeweled headpiece whilst sitting in front of an ornate dressing table before the song begins.

She then goes onto make several costume changes before the wedding scene with Drake.

The Grammy Awards takes place in 2 weeks time. I’m sure Nicki will take to the red carpet wearing a look which will be much more over the top than this.

Katy Perry In The Blonds – 2010 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

I knew it was only a matter of time before Katy Perry wore one of the more extravagant The Blonds Spring 2011 corsets.

Her pink floral corset was worn last night when she walked the red carpet prior to her performance at the 2010 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

The newlywed teamed her corset with a bubblegum pink mini skirt, pink bracelets and blue suede Louboutin pumps.

I love this look it’s fun, sexy and typically Katy.

Katy performed twice during show in designs by Todd Thomas.

She sang her latest single ‘Fireworks’ as the sexy VS model stormed the runway around her for first performance. She wore bodysuit covered with an exploding firework print.

For the second performance she wore a trompe l’oeil dress latex bustier dress decorated in love hearts.

Runway To Wiener Arena – Katy Perry In The Blonds

When I reviewed The Blonds Spring 2011 presentation, I said could see Katy Perry wearing this collection and I wasn’t wrong.

The kooky singer wore a silver and black Swarovski crystal The Blonds Spring 2011 corset before her performance at the Wiener Arena in Vienna last week.

I love the corset and I’m very surprised she didn’t pick one of the more dramatic designs, but I’m sure she’s saving them for a bigger occasion.

For once the colourful streaks in her hair aren’t offending me, but I am missing the runway shimmering skirt.

The bandage skirt she’s wearing doesn’t work for me, neither does that arm accessory.

Giuseppe Zanotti heels complete the look.

The Blonds Spring 2011


After running back to my hotel to change out of my floral vintage dress which got totally drench in the torrential rain after the Oscar de la Renta presentation, I arrived at the Milk Studio’s for The Blonds Spring 2011 presentation.

I’m glad I did change into jeans and a tee, because my Sunday best would’ve look totally out of place with all the leather, spikes and chains which adorned the guests at this show.

The energy was electric as show started with colourful cabaret girls open dancing with feathered fans.

Once the show started I was excited to see The Blonds trademark corsets.

They totally stole the show for me.

We were also presented with gowns, bedazzled tuxedos, cocktail dresses, embellished pants and neon coloured sequin bikini’s.

Former Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks closed the show.

Key accessories included a gorgeous collection of Louboutin’s

Front Row: Kristin Cavallari

Favourites: Pearl corset and multi-coloured corset

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Katy Perry and Rihanna

Who Wore The Blonds Better? Rihanna or Kristin Cavallari

Rihanna arrived at her “Rated R” Album Release Party in New York wearing a red The Blonds Fall 2010 dress last November.

Her cowl neck dress was decorated with spikes on the shoulders and a chain detail which draped at the front and on the sleeves.

Christian Louboutin ankle boots and stockings completed the look.

Who knows what Kristin Cavallari will do now “The Hills” is over.

Maybe she’ll can get tips from Camilla Belle on how to turn walking the red carpet into a full-time job.

Kristin arrived at the “Salt” LA Premiere last night wearing the same dress is a silvery grey colour.

Her dress was teamed with a B. Romanek clutch – which has been a celebrity favourite for a long while – and Christian Louboutin heels.

I prefer the dress in red but Rihanna’s styling is all over the place with the stockings and ankle boots.

Kristin should’ve worn her hair up, but I will still give this win to her for her overall presentation.

Runway To G.A.Y. – Kylie Minogue In The Blonds

This weekend golden girl Kylie Minogue was at club G.A.Y in London where she performed a special late night gig for her fans.

The pop princess looked spectacular wearing a gold The Blonds Fall 2010 corset mini dress on stage as she wowed the crowds with a set of songs from her new album, “Aphrodite”.

The Blonds have many celebrity fans including Rihanna, Fergie, Katy Perry and Holly Madison.

I wonder how Kylie was able to perform without poking herself on those spikes.
