The Blonds Fall 2012

The Blonds’ Fall 2012 presentation was my last show this fashion week.

David and Phillipe Blond were inspired by vintage biker chick flicks and the animated film ‘Heavy Metal’. They want women to be strong characters, equalling men in strength and prowess, but still look stunning and glamorous.

We saw strong fitted silhouettes with severe colours such as blood red, ice blue and jet black.

Distressed materials like leather and denim were mixed with crystals which made for an explosive presentation of fitted dresses, jumpsuits and bedazzling panties, but it was the corsets everyone wanted to see.

The crystal-embellished corset were breathtaking and I loved the red and black leather corset which reminded me of Michael Jackson’s iconic ‘Thriller’ leather jacket.

With Lil’ Kim in the front row, I wonder if she will get first dibs on this collection.

After attending four The Blonds fashion shows, this is the first time I have seen them dabbled in menswear.

Front Row: Lil’ Kim, Cassie and Adam Lambert

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Fergie, Rihanna and Kylie Minogue

Best Dressed Of The Week – Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen & Jennifer Hudson In The Blonds

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge won your votes wearing a sleek black velvet Alexander McQueen strapless gown to The Sun Military Awards this week.

This was my third favourite look from Catherine this year, following her Alexander McQueen wedding gown and her gorgeous Jenny Packham gown.

Jennifer Hudson was my favourite wearing The Blonds to the VH1 Diva event.

Her multi-coloured crystal-encrusted gown and perfectly complementary sandals was a real diva moment.

Diana Ross would be proud.

Jennifer Hudson In The Blonds & Dolce & Gabbana – VH1’s Divas Celebrate Soul Performances

Jennifer Hudson showcased more than just her singing abilities when she took to the stage at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City last night for VH1’s Divas Celebrate Soul event.

She wore a very sexy ruby mini dress from The Blonds Spring 2012 collection.

This signature corset dress is bejewelledwith contrasting sequins.

It’s a shame that the PVC strips across the front of the bodice and the straps are visible, because she really worked this look on the stage.

The Blonds Spring 2012

I am always very entertained by The Blonds runway show as they always put on a full production.

This season I was so excited about their Spring 2012 offerings that I skipped out on desert at a dinner party to make sure I was on time for this show – and I’m never one to skip out on a slice of Tiramisu.

Every season The Blonds always give us a new theme.

This season the theme was Playboy with bunny ears as accessories.

After a week of pastels and florals, the designers served up signature corsets, leotards embellished with colourful pom poms and rhinestones, a pink latex dress, a rhinestone covered bralet with matching shorts and an embellished corset with a pink tulle train (hello Katy Perry).

Apart from the bunny ears the models stormed the runway in Louboutin pumps, ankle boots and knee-high boots.

Front Row: Patricia Field, Amanda Lepore, Kat Graham, Mr Jay and Miss Jay

Favourites: Pink corset with pouty lip appliques and colourful rhinestone gown

Who I See Wearing This Collection: The usual suspects, Katy Perry, Fergie and Nicki Minaj

Katy Perry In The Blonds – “The Smurfs” World Premiere

Katy Perry ensure she was the star attraction at “The Smurfs” World Premiere which was held at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City yesterday.

The singer who lends her voice to the movie as ‘Smurfette’ got very much into the spirit of her character on the red carpet.

She wore a custom-made The Blonds corset with the picture of her character emblazoned in colourful sparkling diamantes.

An ultra short skirt was teamed with the corset to mimic the white dress worn by ‘Smurfette’ who joined Katy on the red carpet.

Blue eye make-up, blue Louboutin’s, Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Smurf nails completed her typically quirky look.
