Lea Michele In Michael Kors – Michael Kors Luncheon

Lea Michele attended a luncheon benefiting the Saban Free Clinic at the Beverly Hills Michael Kors Collection Store yesterday afternoon.

The ‘Glee’ actress wore a super-short Michael Kors fuchsia hammered brocade racer dress.

I love the vibrant pink colour on her; it works perfectly with her complexion which she contrasts with soft pink lips and blush.

On this occasion I do like her hair, but I’m still not sure if I can ever get used to seeing her with bangs.

Her silver strappy sandals are perfection, but the nude clutch isn’t working for me and it feels like a last-minute addition before stepping out the door.

Melinda Maria jewels completed her look.

Roksanda Ilincic Spring 2012

Roksanda Ilincic’s Spring 2012 presentation was my final show this London Fashion Week.

On my first day working at a fashion house, my director asked me to fetch her a lantern-sleeved dress from the showroom. I had to Google it to figure out what she was talking about, so I found it quite ironic that this collection had many lantern-sleeved looks on display.

Whilst taking a brief trip down memory lane, I found myself falling in love with the knitted beanie hats which added a quirky touch to this sophisticated collection.

Mustard dominated the colour palette alongside an eye-popping bright fuchsia pink and aqua blue. The rest of the colour palette consisted of ivory, grey and navy blue.

This collection represents elegant essentials: sheath dresses, maxis, blouses, and pants which all have a whimsical edge.

Key accessories included knitted beanie hats, rope belts and amazing Nicholas Kirkwood tri-colour ankle strap pumps.

Front Row: Anna Wintour and Poppy Delevigne

Favourites: Pink dress paired with a pink beanie hat and striped and floral print drop-waist maxi dress

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Leighton Meester, Bonnie Wright, Carey Mulligan, Zoe Saldana, Ginnifer Goodwin, Elisabeth Moss, Emma Stone, Andrea Riseborough, Kiera Knightley, Tilda Swinton, Michelle Monaghan, Olivia Palermo, Michelle Obama, Corinne Bailey Rae, Gemma Arterton, Amy Adams, Gwyneth Paltrow and Leighton Meester

Hailee Steinfeld In Carven – Cody Simpson’s Album Release Party

Hailee Steinfeld joined a bunch of other teens at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood, California, on Monday to celebrate the release of Cody Simpson’s album ‘Coast to Coast’.

The teen actress looked absolutely adorable wearing a Carven Fall 2011 ensemble.

Her super-chic look included a black 3/4 length sleeve top with a white accordion collar which she paired with Carven patent leather shorts.

A diamante-embellished black clutch and black Nicholas Kirkwood heels completed her look.

Is it wrong that I’m jealous of a 14-year-old who got her first Kirkwoods before I did?

Who Wore Alice + Olivia Better? Corrine Bailey Rae or Estelle

Corrine Bailey Rae attended Christian Siriano’s Spring 2012 presentation which was held at The Vault during New York Fashion Week earlier this month.

She looked beautiful wearing an Alice + Olivia colour-block maxi dress with long sleeves and diagonal panels in contrasting black and grey colours.

The singer accessorized with a tan chain strap bag and a thin leather belt.

Soft makeup completed her look.

Estelle wore the same dress in a red and black colour combination when she attended the Us Weekly’s 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers of 2011 event at Penthouse in New York, a few days later.

The singer accessorized her look with a wide black leather belt, a small black clutch, a cuff bracelet and purple pointed-toe platform heels.

She also added a fun pair of gold earrings with black stones and an oversized cocktail ring to her look.

My vote is going to Estelle. I love her bold ensemble and how her red hair and lips complement the dress. I also prefer how she added fun accessories.

You can buy this colour-block Alice + Olivia dress from Bloomingdale’s in black and white or Shopbop.com in red and black.

Sienna Miller In Christian Dior – Moet & Chandon Etoile Awards

Sienna Miller attended the Moet & Chandon Etoile Awards in London last night which honoured Mario Testino.

Like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the British actress also wore white…I will guess it was the theme of the night.

Sienna was almost unrecognisable wearing a Christian Dior gown.

Her spaghetti-strap gown with fan-shaped, embellished details is a huge departure from how we are used to seeing her.

I can’t even remember her last red carpet appearance, so this glamorous look is refreshing.

Whilst the gown is spectacular, her makeup is off-putting.

The berry lip isn’t too bad, but the raccoon eyes are shocking.

Mary Katrantzou Spring 2012

Inside the venue for the Mary Katrantzou Spring 2012 presentation we were met by a bed of colourful flowers.

It was, of course, a huge indication of what was in store for this collection.

There was no need for coffee before this 9am show as the array of colours was truly awakening for this fatigued fashion crowd.

Lavender, yellow, orange, purple, pink and green flowers bloomed across structured mini dresses with bubble skirts, pant suits, sweaters, pencil skirts and chiffon tops with a flowing trains.

Other than florals, we saw expressive digital print images of flamingos and other birds on body-conscious silhouettes.

The finale halter dress with an asymmetrical hemline was created using Swarovski Elements which looked really heavy, but the model showcased the dress beautifully.

Christian Louboutin provided colourful heels which complemented not only the collection, but the model’s lip colour too.

Blue continues to be a hot lip colour for Spring 2012. Models at Richard Chai Love also sported this bold lip shade.

Once again we see a purposely messy updo hairstyles on the runway, so we won’t be buying any hairbrushes this coming Spring 2012.

Favourites: Tri-colour floral ensemble and printed dress with asymmetrical hemline and crescent bodice

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Anna Dello Russo, Solange Knowels, Cameron Diaz, Minka Kelly, Kelly Rowland, Florence Welch, Fergie, Tilda Swinton, Shala Monroque, Rosamund Pike and Yasmin Le Bon
