Elle MacPherson In Tom Ford – 2012 National Television Awards

Elle MacPherson joined Tess Daly and Laura Whitmore on the red carpet for the 2012 National Television Awards in London last night.

She wore a Tom Ford Fall 2011 gunmetal-grey embellished gown with a high neckline, which we’ve already seen on Anne Hathaway.

I didn’t like it back then and I dislike it even more now, especially with that braid accented ponytail.

What really kills Elle’s look for me is the inclusion of the diamond-encrusted statement earrings with so much embellishment on the neckline.

Too much of a muchness.

Drew Barrymore In Ports 1961 – ‘Big Miracle’ Washington Screening

Drew Barrymore was in Washington, DC on Monday for the screening of ‘Big Miracle’.

She wore a Ports 1961 Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

On her last outing, many of you said you thought Drew’s looks aged her, so I wonder how you’re feeling about this blurred houndstooth-print dress?

Bearing in mind this look is for a screening, I do think it is event appropriate, but I wish she’d taken the styling up a few notches.

A clutch would’ve sufficed.

Solange Knowles In Christopher Kane – Tiffany Celebrates The Launch Of ‘True Love In Pictures’

Well here’s a sight for sore, fashion-week-fatigued eyes.

Yesterday evening in New York City, Solange Knowles attended Tiffany’s celebration to launch ‘True Love in Pictures’ with the Sartorialist Scott Schuman and Garance Dore.

The star who DJ’ed the event wore a Christopher Kane neon pleated crepe dress with a pleated skirt from the Resort 2012 collection.

She didn’t let her dress with a sweet silhouette and rise and fall hemline do all the work, as she added a hot-pink Niki clutch by CC Skye and tri-colour Fendi sandals.

I’m loving this look from head to toe, but I bit of lippie would’ve been nice.

Eliza Doolittle wore the orange version back in October.

You can buy Solange’s Christopher Kane dress in an equally
vibrant neon-pink colour from Net-A-Porter.com.

Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2012 Couture

Alexandre Vauthier’s Spring 2012 Couture collection may have been on a softer colour palette of mint green, lavender and white, but it still projected his usual sexy, futuristic vision.

White fringed dresses, pastel chiffon gowns and draped tops over fitted pants slotted in-between LBDs with bold shoulders paired with PVC pants and black dresses with cut-out and thigh-high splits.

At first I was shocked that the models had protruding hip bones, but by the third look I realised that the hips had been deliberately exaggerated.

Fur accents in pastel colours to match the dresses adorned the models’ shoulders, whilst neckpieces encrusted with Swarovski Elements provided the perfect juxtaposition of soft fabrics.

Each model wore Christian Louboutin PVC heels with different colour top-caps.

Front Row: Beth Ditto

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles, Jessie J, Angelina Jolie, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Blake Lively and Megan Fox

Kate Beckinsale In Christian Dior – ‘Underworld Awakening’ Berlin Photocall

Earlier today, Kate Beckinsale attended a photocall in Berlin, Germany, for the next stop on her promo tour for her newest movie, ‘Underworld Awakening’.

On this occasion the actress wore a Christian Dior Spring 2012 dress.

There is something about this look that screams ‘Project Runway’ to me.

Sorry, ‘Project Runway reject’ as the dress falls horribly flat on Kate.

I’m not sure if it’s the dress itself or the terrible styling, but Kate can do so much better than this.

My mother always says, ‘be careful what you wish for’. I wish she’d give us something new; she did and now I don’t like it.

Pewter peep-toes and a high ponytail completed her look.

Which look do you prefer?

The Michael Kors or the Dior?

Stéphane Rolland Spring 2012 Couture

Stéphane Rolland can always be relied upon to serve up sophisticated looks with explosive effects. Hence Lady Gaga is a big fan.

For Spring 2012 the couturier was inspired by the work of kinetic artist Michel Deverne.

On a colour palette of black, white, red and lime green, silhouettes were kept simple with highly sculptural and exaggerated flounces.

He continues to push the envelope with architectural details and daring cut-outs whilst sticking to his signature dramatic trains and metallic gold accents.

Yasmin Le Bon closed the show wearing a blood-red gown.

She was escorted up the runway by two handsome men, not because the designer was worried the supermodel would get mobbed, but to ensure the gown was artfully displayed along the full length of the runway.

The gown, which weighed over 100 lbs, looked heavy, but the supermodel didn’t let it show.

Favourites: White and red cap-sleeve mermaid gown and black gown with gold accents

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Cate Blanchett, Lady Gaga, Beyonce Knowles, Tilda Swinton, Liv Tyler, Kelly Rowland, Rooney Mara, Angelina Jolie and Eva Green
