Victoria Beckham Fall 2011

On Wednesday I also saw Victoria Beckham’s Fall 2011 dress, denim and sunglasses collection during the press day.

Victoria’s Fall 2010 is still my favourite collection of the six she’s produced so far, but this Fall 2011 collection runs a very close second.

I loved the loose silhouettes which makes many of the pieces more wearable for those – like me – who don’t attend fabulous cocktail parties every week.

If I’m going to spend money a VB look I would like to wear it more than once, and this collection will allow me to do that.

I loved the mixing of rich colours from the mustard yellows, burgundy’s, khaki, stone and reds.

From my pictures you will see that a few looks weren’t shown during the presentation like the two tone A-line dress and the black and white embellished gowns.

Those of you – like Katherine Jenkins – who love VBs body conscious dresses, you’ll be pleased to see two classic strapless VB fitted dresses within the mix for Fall. One of the tweed dresses has a beautiful silver metallic finish.

An interesting fact from this collection is that it holds the 100th dress made by VB.

It’s the yellow wrap dress above, which also comes in a khaki colour which I saw on the day. I’m sure many didn’t think VB would have a second season let alone make 100 dresses. But VB is used to proving people wrong.

I don’t think I’ve seen so many sunglasses in one place. Not even in the Sunglasses Hunt.

For a woman who’s hardly seen without sunglasses, it’s not surprising she produced such an extensive collection. New additions include rose gold and platinum shades. The collection also showcased fun colourful frames plus Victoria’s favourite butterfly glasses, which sell out the second they hit Net-A-Porter.

The denim’s have come a long way from their earlier ‘dvb’ days. They came in a variety of colours, lengths and washes with zippers as accents.

Favourites: Cashmere knot fitted dress, Cap sleeve pleat mini dress and the Halterneck pleat skirt dress

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Helen Mirren, Demi Moore, Kelly Ripa, Katherine Jenkins, Cameron Diaz, Zoe Saldana, Susan Sarandon, Rachel McAdams, Nicole Kidman, Rebecca Hall, Leighton Meester and Olga Kurylenko

Victoria Beckham Fall 2011 Bag Collection

Yesterday I attended the Victoria Beckham press day in London.

I was really curious to see the bag collection up close, and see if the prices are really justified.

The quality is impeccable as the Italian made collection is made from the finest leathers with attention being paid to the smallest detail.

I saw a variety of different styles including an updated ‘Victoria’ bag, plus the Travel cases and hexagonal chain bag in additional colours. These styles appear to be the signature pieces.

The collection had some new additions including iPad cases, blackberry cases, plus totes and duffel bags which didn’t have Victoria’s signature structure.

For those of you were turned off by the structured bags, this collection included a variety of bags with a softer silhouette. Slouchy cross body nomadic bags – which David Beckham has been sporting – were included in this collection so there is something for the fellas too.

I got totally sucked into this collection I have to admit.

I fell in love with the two tone mustard bags. The convertible bag which can go from a shoulder bag to a clutch is too die for, as is the ‘Victoria’ soft suede tote in the same colours.

I’m hoping they are added to Net-A-Porter.com, but I’m sure they will sell out before I can get my Amex out of my purse.

Prices for these bags start from £900 for the shoulder bags up to £8,000+ for the ‘Victoria’ crocodile bag.

Katherine Jenkins In Victoria Beckham – Gorby 80 Gala At The Royal Albert Hall

Katherine Jenkins opted out of wearing a gown when she attended the Gorby 80 Gala At The Royal Albert Hall in London tonight.

The Welsh singer wore a Victoria Beckham panel stretch jersey dress from the Spring 2011 collection.

Her blush halter neck fitted dress with signature zip in rose gold hugs her curves beautifully. It fits her like a glove.

Katherine is a huge fan of Victoria Beckham’s dress collection owning several pieces. She even has the same dress in 2 colours.

She follows in her favourite designers footsteps by pairing her dress with YSL Trib Two slingbacks.

Victoria Beckham’s Bag Collection @ Net-A-Porter

It took a long while for Victoria Beckham to shake off Posh Spice and become the respected fashion designer that she is today.

She blew us away with her well tailored, beautiful chic dresses which she wore and carried with a Birkin in every colour under the rainbow.

For Spring 2011 she presented a collection of bags.

The classic bags were added to Net-A-Porter last week. Some styles sold out instantly, but the online store quickly restocked their virtual shelves.

I much admit I’m surprised they are selling so well considering the price points which range from £1,700 to £8,950.

We know Victoria’s attention to detail is second to none. She wouldn’t put her name to any product she doesn’t believe in, which is why she is her own best brand ambassador.

Check out her collection of bag available on Net-A-Porter US and Net-A-Porter International.

Demi Moore In Victoria Beckham – “Margin Call” 2011 Sundance Film Festival Premiere

Demi Moore attended the “Margin Call” Premiere at the Eccles Center Theatre during the 2011 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah yesterday.

The actress appears to be Victoria Beckham’s biggest fan because she wears yet another VB dress.

On this occasion she wore a steel grey Victoria Beckham satin-crepe bell dress from the Spring 2011 collection.

I wasn’t a fan of this waxy looking dress to begin with – even less so in this grey colour – but Demi who loves to wear dark colours makes it work for her.

I originally thought this dress was look 15 back to front, but Demi is actually wearing look 16 with the exposed zipper pulled down half way.

Tights, booties, a black clutch and a Cartier Platinum diamond and onyx Panther body wrap ring completed her look.

Mila Kunis In Victoria Beckham – 2011 AFI Awards

At the 2011 AFI Awards yesterday, Mila Kunis proved my theory right.

The Victoria Beckham Spring 2011 collection would look better on the red carpet.

Mila looked gorgeous wearing a white strapless full skirted Victoria Beckham paint-effect cotton-organdy dress with has horizontal shimmering silver stripes.

The ‘Azzendine Alaia’ inspired dress has had slight modifications on the bodice to improve the look of the dress.

This proves my second statement about the collection which was that it looked unfinished on the runway.

A blue Balenciaga python clutch, Neil Lane jewels and Ferragamo nude peep-toes completed her look.
