Valentino Fall 2011

Valentino’s Fall 2011 presentation showcased a divinely charming romantic collection.

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli gave us ultra feminine pieces with ruffles, tiers, embellishments and lace which glided down the runway so beautifully.

We saw halter dresses with a lace bodice and pleated skirt, leather coats, wool coats, sheer blouses, tapered pants, cashmere cardigans embellished with studs and day dresses on a colour palette of nude, burgundy, navy, green, baby blue and saffron.

Luxe knits and fox furs will ensure we are kept warm this coming Fall.

We saw lots of floral prints and floral appliqués which accented many looks. I also loved feather accents and the tromp-l’oeil feathers on chiffon dresses.

If you’re looking for romantic grown-up elegance this is definitely the collection for you.

Key accessories included python print boots, black headbands, clutches, totes and ankle strap pumps.

Front Row: Alexa Chung, Florence Welch, Fan Bing Bing, Kanye West, Natalia Vodianova, Caroline Sieber, Bianca Brandolini d’Adda, Delfina Deletrez Fendi and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Jessica Alba, Florence Welch, Eva Mendes, Hailee Steinfeld, Alexa Chung, Fan Bing Bing, Jennifer Aniston, Elle Fanning, Camilla Belle, Ginnifer Goodwin, Keira Knightley, Kirsten Dunst, Leighton Meester, Cate Blanchett and Sarah Jessica Parker

Which Was Your Favourite Jennifer Lawrence Awards Season Look?

After a brief detour onto men’s editions of Who Wore It Better? we’re back to Awards Season polls.

My second favourite newcomer of the year was Jennifer Lawrence.

The “Winter’s Bone” nominated actress was totally fearless on the red carpet.

She favoured Oscar de la Renta and Prabal Gurung this season as she wore them both twice, but her most daring choice was her Louis Vuitton gown which was my favourite look from her this season.

Airport Style: Victoria Beckham’s Brian Atwood ‘RZ’ Boots

Victoria Beckham was spotted at London’s Heathrow earlier today as she’s in town to work with Range Rover and to no doubt start work on her new collection.

The pregnant star strategically placed her clutch over her baby bump, not that she appears to be showing that much anyway.

Despite the sunny weather VB opted for all black pairing a black blazer with black leggings and black tank top.

The most eye-popping thing about her look were her Brian Atwood ‘RZ’ boots.

The thigh-high boots named after Rachel Zoe have a silver chain detail running along the back.

Victoria has been spotted in these boots once before.

Rachel Zoe and Kim Kardashian also own a pair.

Mila Kunis In Boca Negro – Cosmopolitan’s Fearless Men of 2011

Mila Kunis was in New York City last night to celebrate Cosmopolitan’s Fearless Men of 2011.

The recent Cosmo cover girl wore a crispy white Boca Negro suit on the red carpet.

Her whole look is simply yet incredibly sexy.

I glad she didn’t try to force this look to be sexy like wearing the suit sans tank top or with lingerie.

This subtle approach works for me.

My only wish is that she hemmed up her pants about 4 inches, especially as her pants were white.

Caleo Fine Jewelry earrings, a Dana Rebecca ring, a black Ferragamo clutch, side swept hair and nude lips completed her look.

Mary J Blige In Michael Kors – Michael Kors 30th Anniversary Celebratory Dinner

The one person I was not surprised to see at the Michael Kors’ 30th anniversary dinner during Paris Fashion Week was Mary J Blige.

The singer has a long time fan of the designers work.

She also opted for a Fall 2011 look.

Her look included a nude fox coat paired with a nude v-neck halter jumpsuit which was entirely covered with paillettes.

This may not be to everyone’s taste, but you have to agree she’s totally rockin’ this look.

Amber Heard In Michael Kors – Michael Kors 30th Anniversary Celebratory Dinner

We haven’t seen much of Amber Heard on the red carpet lately, but she was in Paris last night attending the Michael Kors’ 30th anniversary dinner at the US Ambassador’s Residence.

She wore a suntan Michael Kors Fall 2011 ensemble.

The look consists of a bodysuit, a pleated skirt and an asymmetric belt.

Michael Kors Fall 2011 mirrored platform sandals and a gold clutch completed the look.

On this rare occasion I think I would’ve preferred the black version on Amber.

I’m not sure if it’s the contrast of this picture or the colour of this look, but Amber is looking a tad washed out.

This colour looked better on Gwyneth Paltrow at the Vanity Fair Oscar party because the actress had a sun-kissed glow.

Did Amber make the right choice?

Do you think she should’ve opted for the black version?
