Runway To ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ Presentation – Leona Lewis In Stella McCartney

Oh no.

Leona Lewis attended the Harper’s Bazaar presentation held at the Casino de Madrid last night in Spain.

The first thing I that came to mind when I saw her was, “You can’t pull this off”. A line delivered by Christina Applegate to Jennifer Aniston in “Friends”.

The caped crusader wore a black Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2010 dress, with tights and black pumps.

To complete the look she piled her hair high on her head and added bright pink lipstick.

From looking fabulous at the Brits, Leona does a complete 180.

Although I’m loving the change in direction from the predictable uninspiring gowns she used to wear, there’s nothing I like about this look.

She doesn’t even come close to pulling this off. As hard as she tried.

Dennis Basso Fall 2010

Security was tight at Dennis Basso’s Fall 2010 presentation. People had to be checked in twice and some even had their bags searched.

It was quite clear that the PRs didn’t want a PETA ambush at this presentation.

The reason was because Dennis Basso presented chinchillas coats, fox furs and an alligator military jacket trimmed with fur.

There was just as much fur on the runway as there was in the front row, with Anna Wintour and Andre Leon Talley both wearing fur, as well as Basso’s clientèle.

It wasn’t all about the furs. We saw luxurious silk gowns, cute plunging LBDs, sheath dresses, sheer blouses and leather trimmed pants.

This is the only presentation I’ve attended in which the designer received a standing ovation.

Ruthie Davis provided the footwear for this presentation. I was in lust with the crystal and silver metal spiked heels that stormed the runway.

Runway To 2010 Brit Awards – Florence Welch In Zuhair Murad, Ashley Isham & Christian Dior

Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine had several looks at the 2010 Brit Awards.

She started off on the red carpet wearing a Zuhair Murad Spring 2010 Couture mini dress.

The singer later performed wearing a stunning rise and fall Spring 2010 gown by London based designer Ashley Isham.

At the Universal after party for The Brit Awards 2010 at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park she changed into a cute Christian Dior Spring 2010 long-sleeved mini dress, paired with the runway shoes and socks combo.

My favourite look has to be the Zuhair Murad mini.

You know how I love embellished dresses.

As a winner of the best ‘British Album’ of the year award, Flo posed wearing a black asymmetrical Roksanda Ilincic dress with a draped detail on the hips and lace sleeves.

Which was your favourite look?

Max Azria Fall 2010

I would describe Max Azria’s Fall 2010 collection as minimalist chic.

The designer kept the collection sleek and very simple.

There were no vibrant colours in this collection, as the colour palette consisted of mostly black, but we also saw coffee, grey, white and burgandy.

I loved how refined and well though-out this collection was, as we were presented with draped dresses, leather skinny pants, 3/4 length sleeved leather jackets and coats.

I was surprised to see a few black bandage dresses in this collection which were not as in your face as those presented in the Herve Leger collection earlier this week.

I love this new minimalism direction, and so did AnnaLynne McCord, Estelle, Maggie Q and Melissa George in the front row.

Runway To “Shutter Island” New York Premiere – Michelle Williams In Lanvin

Michelle Williams continues to promote her new movie “Shutter Island”.

This time she’s in New York.

At her Berlin premiere not many of you liked her Chanel look when I thought she look beautiful.

On this occasion this Lanvin Spring 2010 asymmetrical ivory dress with a ruffled neckline doesn’t work for me.

It washes her out, the hair and make-up are oh so very plain.

The runway shoes are so very unimaginative, plus I hate that they are black.

Aside from the physical attributes, she totally sucks the life out of this stunning dress which the model makes look so sexy.

Nil points on all fronts for Williams.

Who Wore Marchesa Better? Diane Kruger or Georgina Chapman

Actress and red carpet heroine Diane Kruger first wore this asymmetrical Marchesa Resort 2010 dress in red to the “Inglourious Basterds” premiere in Sydney back in August of last year.

Diane never fails to wow me on the red carpet and this bright red mini dress suits her fair colourings so well.

She has paired this Marchesa dress with Christian Louboutin pumps and a House of Lavande Italian bracelet, which is all the accessorising this dress requires.

I would like to have seen her hair completely off her shoulders though as the having it swept sideways like this throws the look off balance.

Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman then wore this dress in black to the launch of the new designers floor at Saks back in September.

Georgina looks stunning as always and I love hows she’s teamed this LBD with purple peep toes and a similar coloured clutch.

Such a tough decision but I think this one goes to Georgina for a great choice of shoe and wearing her hair off her shoulders.

What do you think?
