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.

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.
