Joan Collins At London Fashion Week

After returning from New York Fashion Week, I thought I reached my celebrity spotting quota for the year.

At the Caroline Charles show this morning during London Fashion Week I met THE celebrity.

Joan Collins.

Seriously I thought I was going to die.

She looks fabulous wearing a leopard print top with BOLD SHOULDERS. How apt considering the bold shoulder was very much inspired by her Alexis Carrington Colby character in Dynasty.

I didn’t know if I should curtsy, as I felt like I was in the presence of royalty.

Hard to believe she is 76 right?

Pictures taken by me.

London Fashion Week Starts Today

When I arrived back from New York yesterday I was greeted with a few envelopes with invitations to London Fashion Week shows, which I’m very excited about as this year is the British Fashion Council’s 25th anniversary.

In honour of that anniversary many British based designers are returning to London to present their collections.

Burberry, Jonathan Saunders, Matthew Williamson, Pringle of Scotland and one of my favourites Antonio Berardi will be returning to London.

Megan Fox has recently become a fan wearing two pieces from the designer back to back. But the also has loyal fans who include Anna Friel, Victoria Beckham and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Berardi, who usually presents his collections during Paris Fashion Week, credits Peroni Nastro Azzuro for his return to the London schedule.

The Italian beer manufacturer, whom Berardi collaborated with earlier this year to design a range of accessories, has made it possible for the designer to be part of what promises to be a fantastic London Fashion Week.

Who Wore Kimberly Ovitz Better? AnnaLynne McCord or Olivia Wilde

When it comes to this long-sleeved Kimberly Ovitz body con dress, it’s all about with back cut-outs details which is why both AnnaLynne McCord or Olivia Wilde showed off the back of the dress whilst posing on the red carpet.

AnnaLynne McCord brought some serious Va Va Voom on the red carpet when she attended the 8th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in LA back in June.

Her black Kimberly Ovitz pencil sheath dress was business in the front, but party in the back. The actress completed her femme fatale look with an elegant updo and pointy black patent pumps.

Olivia Wilde arrived on the red carpet of the 2009 FOX All-Star Party wearing the same sizzling LBD which she accessorized with camel Jimmy Choo “Seattle” sandals.

She also sported an updo to show off the back of her dress.

For me this is all about AnnaLynne. She’s oozing from every pore and she looks like she’s having a lot of fun wearing this LBD.

You can purchase this Kimberly Ovitz Martin jersey cutout dress from Net-A-Porter’s international site for £455/€558.37.

Runway To ALMA Awards Promotion – Eva Longoria in Gustavo Cadile

The 2009 ALMA Awards celebrating the outstanding achievements of Latinos in entertainment takes place tonight, but will air in the US on Friday September 18.

For the first time in the history of the show, the ALMA Awards will broadcast during National Hispanic Heritage Month, a month in which all Americans learn about the Latino community and celebrate the contributions that Latinos have made to this country throughout its history.

Eva Longoria is the host alongside legendary actor George Lopez.

We can expect to see Eva wearing many stunning gowns on the night. Last year she changed 8 times during the night.

When she shot the promo for this event she wore a stunning baby blue Gustavo Cadile Resort 2010 gown, with a ruffled detail on the hip which is embellished with stunning jewels.

I adore the colour of this gown, it’s so right for her skin-tone but the gown deserved to be on the red carpet.

Social Events Of The Week

“The Burning Plain” Los Angeles Premiere

It was always going to be a hard choice to pick the BDOTW, and now Charlize Theron has walked the red carpet glowing in a mustard Christian Dior Fall 2009 chiffon dress.

The amazing dress – which complements her skin-tone – has gold embroidery details on the shoulders and a matching gold belt.

The actress pairs her dress with matching Dior heels and a gold studded clutch.

“The Burning Plain” New York Premiere

For the New York premiere Charlize Theron wore a teal blue Givenchy Resort 2010 dress.

I wasn’t particularly crazy about the dress on the runway, as it had too much going on around the neckline.

Charlize simplified the dress, paired it with some ivory Givenchy heels and a black Bottega Veneta clutch for another stunningly effortless look.

“Jennifer’s Body” Hot Topic Fan Event, LA

I love Amanda Seyfried’s Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 look.

It has a chic Parisian feel to it with it’s prim and proper style.

The navy cropped jacket with black trims, is paired with black silk shorts, black pumps and a bedazzling clutch.

Like Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox is never at home because she’s always working the red carpet.

This time she opts for a charming dusky rose  Antonio Berardi Fall 2009 dress with a ruffle cascading down the hip.

She pairs her look with gold Brian Atwood pumps – which I don’t think work well with the dress – and a Judith Leiber clutch.

“Love And Other Impossible Pursuits” Screening, Toronto Film Festival

Natalie Portman braved a cold night to bring a bit of the tropics to Toronto, by wearing a colourful strapless Lanvin fuschia dahlia floral print mini dress.

I LOVE the colour of this dress, the slight rise and fall nature of the skirt and the rosette detail on the bust.

“Love And Other Impossible Pursuits” Press Conference, Toronto Film Festival

For the press conference black wide legged pants and a floral Chloé Resort 2010 blouse, was a simple but cute look for the actress off the red carpet.

Gucci Cocktail Party For Ffawn

WOW.

This has to be the best Serena Williams has looked in a long while. I love the hair and make-up especially.

The tennis ace wore a one shoulder mini Gucci Fall 2009 dress covered in green and black crystals, with a striped pattern going across it.

She looks sexy, confident and power.

I hope I can squeeze this onto the BDOTW poll.

Unfortunately I think Alicia Keys’ black sleeveless zip Gucci Resort 2010 dress fails to flatter.

The dress looks much better with the belt, the dress is otherwise too plain without it, even with the ridiculous spikey thing on her wrist.

I saw Estelle many times around New York and each time she wore black.

Estelle use to wow us with daring designs and bold colours.

Has her stateside move muted her style?

Her Gucci Fall 2009 ensemble includes a black crystals sleeveless top which she belted with black pants.

Mary J. Blige keeps her look very simple wearing a no-frills black v-neck jersey dress with flute sleeve and black patent belt.

She completes the look with black patent booties and a black python envelope clutch.

Only Serena shines for me at this event.
