Versus Fall 2010

Versus Fall 2010 continues to go from strength to strength as the younger flirtatious sister of the main Versace brand.

The hemlines continue to be short, but this season we see more of a colour pop.

I loved how the majority of the dresses had a fitted bondage-style bodices with a pleated skirt which fanned out.

These were very much party pieces, but the more wearable looks included a plum velvet jacket, a green velvet blazer, black cigarette pants, leather jackets, an angora cardigan and printed tees for everyday wear.

This collection shows Kane’s edgy side whilst still retaining the sex appear of Versace which I really appreciated from this collection.

The accessories were amazing with lace-up gladiator boots and sandals to bags and cute zippered clutches.

The prints you see on the bag and tees are archived images of Bruce Weber ad campaign images for Versace.

Runway To Vera Wang Store Launch – Renee Zellweger In Vera Wang

I’ve often wondered why celebs don’t wear Vera Wang on the red carpet.

She makes wearable stylish pieces, but I guess celebs just needed to be formally introduced to her work. Hence Ms Wang throwing a store launch party in LA last night.

Renee Zellweger put her best Jimmy Choo clad foot forward wearing a burgundy ruched strapless Vera Wang Fall 2010 top paired with a black pencil skirt.

For once I don’t feel a sense of de ja vu when looking at Renee.

I love this look, but did she have to wear so many gold rings.

It’s very BA Baracus from the A Team to wear that many gold rings.

Runway To “The Stylist Project” Exhibition – Ginnifer Goodwin In Christian Dior

Ginnifer Goodwin gives us a rare smile at “The Stylist Project” Exhibition in LA last night.

What’s not rare is a cute look from the “Big Love” actress.

The sun it out here in London, which puts me in the mood for a cute summery floaty dress with bare legs and strappy sandals.

I love the floral prints mixed with the purple lace on her Christian Dior Spring 2010 dress.

With her cute pixie cut she paired her look with a bejeweled Dior clutch and black ankle strap heels.

BDOTW suddenly just became very busy.

Runway To State Dinner At Elysee Palace – Carla Bruni-Sarkozy In RM by Roland Mouret

Yesterday evening I received a tweet from Kristen saying “Is Carla Bruni wearing the same RM dress that you wore to the BAFTAs?”.

After clicking the link I saw the beautiful Carla Bruni-Sarkozy was wearing the exact same teal green RM by Roland Mouret Fall 2009 gown I had worn to the BAFTAs just last week.

The First Lady of France wore her gown to welcome Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and his wife Svetlana to a state dinner held in their honour at Elysee Palace in Paris.

Carla’s hair was styled into a loose updo which got me thinking that she’s quite clearly taking style tips from me. j/k *winks*

Her look was paired with blue satin Christian Louboutin kitten heels, so she was very much representing French designers last night.

Who knew the First Lady of France and I share the same taste in clothes.

We don’t share the same taste in footwear though. I would never wear kitten heels. *shudders at the thought*

I forgot to say previously that Amber Valletta was the first to wear this gown.

Roberto Cavalli Fall 2010

Before the Roberto Cavalli Fall 2010 presentation, Roberto walked over to Anna Wintour thanked her for attending his show then kissed her hand.

Not many can make Anna Wintour blush, but Roberto Cavalli did.

He then headed to the side of the runway to watch his presentation. I found this surprising, but it makes perfect sense that he view the collection as the buyers and editors do.

I was later informed via twitter (what did we do before twitter?) that Oscar de la Renta has watched his show by the side of the runway too.

Before the presentation I’d wished Cavalli would bring back some of his distinctive animal prints and he didn’t let me down.

Leopard, tiger and cheetah prints were presented, but they were toned down and blended with the collection rather than stood out.

Cavalli concentrated on rich brocade pieces which dominated this collection via coats, pants, jackets and bags.

My favourite piece was the red coat worn by Natasha Poly. It feels like a vintage piece with rich history.

Apart from the brocades we saw velvet, military chic and many boho backless floaty maxi dresses.

Nicole Richie will be first in line to wear those maxi.

This collection was boho-chic in a very modern way, and I totally love every part of the presentation.
