Kerry Washington In Victoria, Victoria Beckham - Saturday Night Live

Kerry Washington was the guest host of ‘Saturday Night Live’ this weekend, and she wasted no time helping to poke fun at the diversity issue on the sketch comedy programme, playing several famous women including Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey.

Following her promo tour for ‘Scandal’, we found ourselves in unfamiliar territory – disliking her looks; but following the announcement of her pregnancy last week everything fell into place.

Now, Kerry is in a position to celebrate her bump rather than hiding it so she’s back on track, showcasing her maternity style wearing a sweet Victoria, Victoria Beckham Spring 2014 long-sleeved patterned frock with a flared pleated skirt.

I love the raspberry lip colour here. It’s not only complementary to her dress, but also enhances her radiant glow.

2014 is going to be a very interesting time for maternity style, with two of our favourite stars, Olivia and Kerry, working the red carpet with their baby bumps.

VB Spring 2014

Victoria Beckham invited digital journalists to have a private viewing of her Spring 2014 Victoria Beckham and Victoria, Victoria Beckham collections, which was hosted at the British Embassy in Paris, France on Friday.

Vogue.co.uk, WWD, Susie Bubble, Rumi from Fashion Toast and myself were just a few of those invited. It was almost like getting the golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s factory.

The collections, including the commercial pieces, were displayed around two rooms in the luxurious venue, which we browsed prior to Victoria’s arrival while drinks and canapés were served.

When the lady of the hour arrived I suddenly became really nervous, which is common around celebs, but I need not have been so shy because, despite what you may believe, Victoria is very approachable and engaging and was genuinely interested in our publications; her passion and excitement for fashion was very evident.

The first question I asked her was about the Victoria, Victoria Beckham Spring 2014 dress which received such mixed comments from you guys, and she said that the lavender silk-cloque dress – which was developed in-house – was her favourite from that collection. After not having much sleep following the show and a round of press appointments, she loved how comfortable the dress felt.

On her Victoria, Victoria Beckham Spring 2014 dress: “It is something very different for me. I was excited to wear it, turned up to work, didn’t really think much about it, should have paid a bit more attention and done my hair, but I didn’t. It’s great to wear fitted clothes, but it’s not all about fitted clothes. I felt very sexy wearing that dress and it was really quite big. I like how it feels quite romantic; I felt very free”.

On the Victoria Beckham woman, and who wears her dresses: “I love women. We really need to support each other and stick together. I went to a wedding in LA the other day and three women were wearing my dresses and that is very exciting. I love how women feel sexy, beautiful, empowered. Of course it is exciting to see celebrities on the red carpet but any women are great. The fact that they have chosen to wear me is a big deal. I am not complacent about it”.

On her online presence: “I can reach my customers quicker (reference to Twitter). My website is doing phenomenally well. What I love about that is that I do a lot of the filming myself and create a lot of the content myself and people can see the brand through my eyes. I am about to start selling ready-to-wear online as well. I didn’t want to do it right at the beginning because I really wanted to understand my customer before I could make my edit of ready-to-wear with all the other collections”.

On the pressures of designing: “I’m not trying to compete with anyone else out there; I’m just trying to compete with myself from the season before. I feel really content, proud, happy and fired up and ready to go for my next collection”.

On her next steps: “I landed back on Friday after the show; my kids were at school, so I went to the studio and started working on the pre-collection. For me, I have a lot of big dreams; there is a lot I still want to do and I’m very hands on with every element of my business, and I want to do more at the right time and not rush anything, take baby steps to create something which hopefully will be around for a long time, and to create something very important fashion-wise. It’s not just about selling loads of clothes, which the collection happens to be selling phenomenally well; I want to be relevant every season fashion-wise, not just clothes: the hair, the makeup, the venue”.

On expanding her collection to shoes: “I would love to, when the time is right. But at the moment I have my hands full with the collections, which are growing so quickly sell-through is phenomenal. We are adding new retail partners each season. I’ve just started doing pre-collection as well, which has doubled the workload, so when the time is right, for sure”.

Victoria Beckham In Victoria, Victoria Beckham - Out In New York City 2

The Victoria, Victoria Beckham Spring 2014 presentation took place yesterday morning, NY time, so Victoria waited a hot minute before showcasing her favourite look on the streets of Manhattan yesterday afternoon.

I find myself being very intrigued by the shape of this dress. It doesn’t feature the traditional VB signatures, which are usually more streamlined and fitted; this is both voluminous and oversized.

I adore this in every possible way, mostly because it comes as a huge shocker, but also the texture and colour.

With regards to the collection, this was easily my favourite VVB collection since the birth of the brand. I can actually see myself purchasing several pieces, especially the pleated frocks.

Unlike Mrs Beckham, we will have to wait several months to get our hands on it.

Kim Sears In Victoria, Victoria Beckham - Wimbledon Men's Final

On Sunday Andy Murray became the first Brit to win the Wimbledon Men’s Final in 77 years.

His beautiful girlfriend Kim Sears was watching the nail-biting match along with the rest of the nation wearing a Victoria, Victoria Beckham Spring 2013 dress.

Her lace dress with a ladylike silhouette in an oh-so-sweet mint-green hue was the perfect dress to wear to keep her cool watching this tense match.

She styled the easy-breezy look with espadrille wedges.

Diane Kruger In Victoria Beckham - ‘The Host’ LA Press Conference

Following her book store appearance at The Grove on Friday, Diane Kruger was out promoting her latest movie, ‘The Host’, again at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverley Hills, California.

Sadly, there isn’t a full-length picture, but you can get the gist of her look, which features a white shirt/dress and sleeveless blazer/dress from Victoria, Victoria Beckham’s Fall 2013 collection which is very much on trend.

Since we can’t see her shoes, we’ll focus on her Barbara Bui jewels from the Spring 2013 collection, which included a sterling-silver chain necklace and a matching bracelet, which some may consider heavy for such a look, but maybe the look would’ve been too one-dimensional without these accessories.

Keeping the same dark manicure from her previous outing, Diane opted for a simple ponytail on this occasion.

Helen Flanagan In Victoria, Victoria Beckham - The TRIC Awards

Helen Flanagan attended the TRIC (Television and Radio Industries Club) Awards which took place in London yesterday at The Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

As a full-time WAG who quit her role in Coronation Street back in October 2011, I was slightly surprised to see her at this event.

Giving us her best WAG pout, the former actress, model and aspiring writer wore a Victoria, Victoria Beckham Spring 2013 dress.

I have to say I am quite surprised that the star known for always flashing her cleavage would wear something so ladylike.

Her dress features a sheer lace top with patch pockets on the chest and a satin skirt with an inverted box pleat.

Helen accessorized with the WAG accessory du jour, an Hermes ‘Birkin’ bag, sadly left on the floor, and Charlotte Olympia ‘Paris’ ankle-strap platform sandals.

As much as her antics entertain me, I struggle to take this girl seriously.
