The WGSN Global Fashion Awards

The WGSN Global Fashion Awards

The WGSN Global Fashion Awards, which recognise achievement in fashion and retail design on an international scale, took place at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London yesterday evening.

Winners on the night included Erdem Moralio?lu (Womenswear Designer), Acne (Menswear Design Team), Nicholas Kirkwood (Accessories and Footwear Designer) and Topshop (Best Multi-Channel Retailer).

Laura Whitmore: The Irish TV presenter wore a feather-festooned Nicholas Oakwell Spring 2012 Couture white-collared frock accented with a silver belt and silver pumps, opting to mix metals with a gold clutch which looked like it weighed a ton. You may remember that Tali Lennox wore this same dress back in May 2012.

Ella Catliff: ‘La Petite Anglaise’ blogger, and my seat mate for the evening, Ella wore a Nanette Lepore ‘Spaceship’ dress with a stunning vibrant floral print with leather insets. Not afraid to mix prints, she added a leopard-print clutch to her look. Loved that matte-red lip.

Amber Le Bon: The model wowed in an Ermanno Scervino white embroidered gown with a floor-sweeping train which couldn’t have been a more fitting look for the elegant model. With her hair teased into a top knot to showcase those dazzling earrings, she styled the rest of her look with a white Stark clutch with gold hardware and a dark manicure.

Who Wore Vionnet Better…Zhang Ziyi or Sandra Bullock?

Who Wore Vionnet Better Zhang Ziyi or Sandra Bullock

On a rain-soaked morning, Zhang Ziyi made her way to the studios of Good Morning America to promote her movie ‘Grandmasters’ wearing an orange Vionnet Resort 2014 drop-waist frock styled with Louboutin pumps, Tesiro earrings and Repossi rings.

Sandra Bullock wore the same dress in the look-book blue-and-orange hue while making a guest appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

I love both versions of the dress, but if I was presented with both, I would go for Sandy’s version as I would find myself having more fun styling this two-toned look.

Blake Lively In Étoile Isabel Marant – Out In Paris

Blake Lively In Isabal Marant &  Isabel Marant Étoile - Out In Paris

Blake Lively was looking ever so sophisticated as she exited the Shangri-La hotel in Paris, France this Wednesday afternoon.

The actress, who has just been named the new face of L’Oreal Paris, turned up the Parisian flair with her Étoile Isabel Marant ‘Canelia’ fuzzy, black-and-white striped sweater and slate-grey houndstooth-print pants.

An adorable pair of Christian Louboutin ‘Gine’ black patent-leather flats with bows on top added some schoolgirl charm to this spirited ensemble.

To accessorize her mixed textures and prints, she carried a quilted, dove-grey Chanel handbag with chain strap detail and put on Chanel pearl-studded, cat-eye sunnies.

Très chic, yes?

Lady Gaga In Alexander McQueen – Out In London

Lady Gaga In Alexander McQueen - Out In London

Lady Gaga was hard to miss while out and about in London on Wednesday.

The provocative songstress stayed with a sombre, all-black theme, debuting another statement ensemble that had a dramatic, noir edge.

Her Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2013 dress coat with a ruffled, high-low hemline was a sophisticated selection, and actually a rather tame one, for Mother Monster—especially compared to the mile-high feather headdress that she recently pulled off.

That said, she did strut out her more typical theatrics by strangely carrying the McQueen Spring 2013 ‘Heroine’ honeycomb bag at arm’s length, with even more quirk courtesy of her McQueen Pre-Fall 2013 ‘Puritan’ over-the-knee boots with buckle detail.

Of course, those boots couldn’t hold a candle to the main head-turner of this look: a basket-weave, mask and hat creation by Philip Treacy. This topper had Gaga written all over it.

Naomi Watts In Michael Kors – ‘Diana’ New York Screening

Naomi Watts In Michael Kors -  'Diana' New York Screening

Naomi Watts walked the red carpet at the ‘Diana’ screening, hosted by The Cinema Society with Linda Wells & ‘Allure’ magazine, at SVA Theater in New York City on Wednesday.

The movie’s main star was understatedly glam in a Michael Kors Spring 2014 navy-blue, floral-specked gown with a refined, cutout detail at the bodice.

She increased the sophisticated tone of the breezy, printed gown with a crimson Roger Vivier ‘Marechale’ clutch and the flash of Harry Winston diamonds.

Retro, side-parted finger waves and the slick of a red lip further contributed to the old-Hollywood-inspired, forties flair of her look.

Olivia Wilde In Cushnie et Ochs – 2013 Courage in Journalism Awards

Olivia Wilde In Cushnie et Ochs - 2013 Courage in Journalism Awards

After announcing her pregnancy last week, Olivia Wilde stepped out to co-host the International Women’s Media Foundation’s 2013 Courage in Journalism Awards held at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

As summery as her frock looks, this Cushnie et Ochs watercolour-inspired botanical print with contrasting sun-lit leaves with shadowed flowers is actually from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

Olivia’s accessories definitely had an autumnal feel with ombre Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ olive-green and black pumps plus a dark-grey stingray clutch with a Stephen Webster cuff complementing her diamond engagement ring.

I’m very excited to see how her maternity style develops.
