Runway To 2010 Goya Awards – Maribel Verdu In Nina Ricci

Many of you requested that I feature Maribel Verdu at the 2010 Goya Awards.

Believe me there was no way I wouldn’t feature this vision of perfection.

The Spanish actress looks breath-taking on the red carpet in this black Nina Ricci Spring 2010 black gown.

The tiered train and ruffled neckline are to-die-for.

The look is just effortless, but I can’t help but be totally devastated by that white bag.

Firstly it’s not very cute and secondly it’s not very complementary.

Why oh why didn’t she carry a clutch. It would have perfected the look.

Erin Fetherston Fall 2010

Erin Fetherston’s Fall 2010 “Chelsea Girl” collection was as you would expect: ethereal, girlie and totally wearable right now.

It suddenly occurred to me half way through the show that I was viewing a Fall collection, but I was in a Spring haze watching the dewy-skinned models who all sported long bangs and poker straight hair wearing floaty maxi dresses, pretty prints, billowy-sleeved blouses and mini skirts sans tights.

I’ve seen a lot of velvet this fashion week, and at Fetherston we saw velvet blazers paired with white maxi dresses.

I noted a lot of bronze mini dresses which will no doubt be the party pieces of this collection.

Like Victoria Beckham, Erin is her own muse and her clothes reflect her style.

Karen Elson, Zoe Kravitz and Whitney Port were in the front row along with Damon Dash (?!?!?).


Runway To Santa Barbara Film Festival – Julianne Moore In Lanvin

Actress Julianne Moore was at the Santa Barbara Film Festival recently, where she attended an event to accepted the Montecito Award.

The award was no doubt for services to acting, but the actress should also receive an award for her constant great style on the red carpet.

Lanvin continues to be one of Julianne’s favourite designers. The clothes seem to love her as much as she loves them.

You may remember Demi Moore tried a one-sleeved Lanvin look which didn’t go down to well, but Julianne pulls off her tomato red shorter version with relative easy.

I love how Moore is just not afraid of colour, be it green, pink or red.

Rachel Roy Fall 2010

I’m loving my flip camera at the moment as it helped me create this video of Rachel Roy’s Fall 2010 presentation which I saw yesterday evening.

I’m a huge fan of Rachel Roy’s ultra feminine, but not too girlie pieces. Her looks can go from a boardroom to a dinner party without tweaking nor accessorizing.

What I noticed from her Fall collection was a strong emphasis on evening wear, which Rachel doesn’t tend to focus on.

The finale gown was my favourite. The strapless beaded gown deserves a red carpet moment.

Apart from the gowns we were presented with pant suits, skirt suits, and tailored jackets – Roy’s staples.

The tailoring was impeccable as always on the skirt suits, and I loved the inclusion of a lot of metallic pieces.

The colour palette was a mix dark romantic colours like eggplant, dark grey and black to pops of fuchsia and aqua.

The shoes – which I zoomed in on during my video – are from Rachel Roy’s Manolo Blahnik collection, and the bags were by Nancy Gonzalez.

Guests included ex-husband Damon Dash, Miss J, Whitney Port and Keke Palmer who is interviewed at the end of my video.


Runway To 2010 Goya Awards – Belen Rueda In Carolina Herrera

Belen Rueda was also at the ‘Goya Awards’ held in Madrid last night.

The Spanish actress often wears Carolina Herrera. You my remember last year she wore a white Carolina Herrera gown which I fell in love.

Unfortunately I didn’t love this bronze Spring 2010 gown on her.

The problem is I would prefer this dress on a brunette as her blonde hair doesn’t complement the rich bronze tone of the gown.

Her body does look amazing though.

Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2010

I was honestly very excited about the Herve Leger Fall 2010 presentation.

Firstly to see how Max Azria reinvigorates that now infamous bandage dress, and secondly to see who would be in the front row.

I was keen to see something new and interesting and this was presented via the laces woven into the dresses, and pieces with exaggerated hips.

The dresses were strapless, asymmetrical, half bandage/half lurex, ruffled and beaded.

Apart from bandage mini dresses we also saw coats, bodysuits, bandage pants, laced bandaged tops and slashed boots.

I did like many of the pieces. The collection walked a fine line between sophistication and urban edge.

I can see them being very popular with fans like Diane Kruger, Miley Cyrus and the rest of young Hollywood.

Dazed Editor Susie Bubble – who was seated behind me – broke etiquette by jumping in front of my video as I was filming the finale and ruined it unfortunately.

Sophia Bush was there wearing a futuristic Herve Leger dress.

Maggie Q is even more petite in real life. Her blue strapless bandage dress really popped in the front row, but she should’ve gone up one size to an xxs.

A bandage dress with tights??? Come on Tinsley Mortimer.

Alison Brie has been front row at a lot of shows I’ve attended, but I had to google her to find out who she was.

Jessica Szohr was carrying the Gossip Girl torch wearing a black blue striped bandage dress.

Unfortunately most of the celebs at Fashion Week are not generating much excitement.

Where’s Blake Lively and Leighton Meester?
