Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Roberto Cavalli Fall 2014 Front Row

Normally one to draw a big A-list crowd, it was surprising to see so many British stars on the front row at The Roberto Cavalli Fall 2104 show.

Cheryl Cole: Continuing her style re-invention, Cheryl Cole attended the show in a statement-making exotic animal-print mac. With her hair slicked back, a heavy smoky eye and polished accessories it was a dramatic look but I actually quite like it. Not only perfect for the Milan culture, it really suits Cheryl and is great to see her try a more grown-up look.

Ellie Goulding: If there’s one hue to wear this season, it is blue. So it was great to see Ellie bring a dazzling hit of the on-trend shade to the front row in a floor-length Roberto Cavalli gown. Combined with the 70s-style loose flowing cut, it was a look that really suited the British singer. Following from Ellie’s questionable Vivienne Westwood dress at the 2014 Brit Awards, this is a look which really suits Ellie’s bohemian aesthetic and one I think she should stick to.

Samantha Barks: British actress Samantha Barks channelled the true Cavalli woman in a black corseted top with high-shine gold waist belt and animal print pencil skirt. Sexy and empowering, I think Samantha’s shoes are the perfect finishing touch for this simple yet effective red carpet look.

Alexa Chung In Valentino - International Woolmark Prize

Alongside style legends Frida Giannini and Franca Sozzani, Alexa Chung turned judge during Milan Fashion Week as she and other fashion stars chose the winner of the hotly anticipated 2014 International Woolmark Prize.

Wearing a Valentino Pre-Fall 2014 cape dress cut across her shoulders and printed with intricate butterflies, the look was a refreshing update on Alexa’s usual preppy feminine style and I thought it was great to see her try new prints.

Typically, Alexa’s styling was minimal but it was great to see her hair blow-dried and her signature lick of eyeliner complemented the 60s feel of the dress.

To finish, Alexa chose a pair of nude strappy suede pumps. While they ensure the cape isn’t over-styled, to me the colour is just wrong. A pair of black and maroon pumps would have been so much more in-keeping and would have added an extra dimension to this look which I think it really needs. Do you agree?

Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2014 Front Row

Just like the understated luxury seen on the runway, the front row at Salvatore Ferragamo’s Fall 2014 show was suitably elegant and star-studded and helped bring Milan Fashion Week to a close in true Italian style.

Hilary Swank: Hollywood mega-star Hilary Swank brought the star power to the Italian powerhouse’s front row. Wearing a beautiful Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2014 cream satin pleated dress with belt buckle, she oozed glamour and grace. Cut perfectly, the dress was kept understated with a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo python pumps which although pretty uninspiring, helped to keep this look suited for the day.

Alison Brie: Also wearing a top-to-toe look by the iconic Italian label, ‘Mad Men’ actress Alison Brie added a pop of spring to the front row. Opting for a Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2014 white strapless pleated dress, Alison looked refreshingly modern and injected a welcome dose of colour with Salvatore Ferragamo pink suede heels and a Ferragamo pink, black and orange leather clutch. I think this is a great look for Alison and a great front row look for Milan.

Rose Byrne In Max Mara - Milan Fashion Week

Rose Byrne will be the next recipient of the Women In Film Max Mara Face of the Future Award® in recognition of her outstanding acting achievement and embodiment of style and grace.

Max Mara Dinner: The celebrations started last night with the Australian actress wearing a Max Mara black dress accented with a gold-trimmed leather belt for a simple, chic look.

Max Mara Fall 2014 Show: For the runway show earlier today during Milan Fashion Week, her style credentials were on full display as she worked a Max Mara black silk tuxedo jacket, cream silk trousers and a sexy gold lamé tank top. Oozing elegance, she rounded out her look with a Max Mara shoulder bag and sleek tresses.

The second look floors me. I would love to put this up for BDOTW.

Ashley Madekwe Front Row @ London Fashion Week

Ashley Madekwe has been my fashion darling of London Fashion Week, hot on the strappy heels of Solange Knowles who took the crown for New York.

We’ve seen Ashley looking super slick and sexy at her first-ever Burberry Prorsum show; here is a look at the rest of her looks.

Topshop Unique: Quite the master of the high-low mix, the British actress kick-started her LFW adventure at the Topshop Unique show, where she wore a simple black top with an attention-grabbing forest-green Topshop sequin skirt styled with a Chanel shoulder bag and Charlotte Olympia sandals with a gold platform.

Matthew Williamson: Wearing a fuchsia shirt dress with a tweed wrap plaid skirt from the British designers Pre-Fall 2014 collection, she styled the look with her Burberry Brit leather jacket, that is working its way up my wish list, and her Chanel bag once again.

Whistles: Perhaps my favourite look from her this week (my mind keeps on changing) was her blush-pink strapless Whistles jumpsuit with a fitted bodice and loose-fit tapered pants. This elegant look was styled with Shamballa Jewels earrings and dusky-pink accessories. I love the dark-and-light-pink combo here. She has a keen eye for what works well together.

Which was your favourite look from Ashley?

It’s a Burberry-Whistles tie for me.
