Shingai Shoniwa In Alpana & Neeraj – ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1’ London Premiere

Shingai Shoniwa joined Kristen Stewart on the red carpet at the London premiere for ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 1’ last night.

The singer was invited as she recorded a track for the movie.

Known for her extravagant, scene stealing red carpet looks, I wasn’t surprised to see her wearing this Alpana & Neeraj Spring 2012 dress which was presented during India Fashion Week last month.

Her dress is called the Industrial 3D ‘Surgical Mask Mermaid’ because it is made entirely of surgical masks.

She made the look her own, and less clinical, by adding pretty floral accents on the straps, which she also playfully added to her hair.

Some of you crave for something more interesting and different on the red carpet, so what do you think of the ‘Surgical Mask Mermaid’?

Celebrities Love…Coloured Leather Coats

As winter quickly approaches, celebs know that it’s all about the right coat.

However, a basic trench isn’t going to cut it.

Instead, fashionistas are all about coloured leather coats. While leather may not be the warmest fabric, it sure does look super chic.

The piece may have a luxe look, but it’s also very versatile. So, it comes as no surprise that this trend has been seen on and off the red carpet.

Since this isn’t your typical black coat, avoid looking too costumey by not wearing matching coloured heels à la Lady Gaga. Instead, try black boots like Rachel Zoe.

You can also take a cue from Blake Lively and step foot into the wild side by teaming it with snakeskin heels.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley kept her look simple with a rock n’ roll edge by adding leather pants.

It’s not that ease to find coloured leather coats, but we found these three.

Freida Pinto Ralph Lauren Blue Label & Balmain – L’Oreal’s 40th Anniversary Party

Freida Pinto helped celebrate L’Oreal Paris’ 40th anniversary of their landmark slogan ‘because I’m worth it’ at the Hotel d’Evreux in Place Vendome in Paris on Monday night.

The Indian brand ambassador wore a Ralph Lauren Blue Label dress.

Her gold crinkled-silk maxi-dress, matched with a gold embellished black Balmain Resort 2012 jacket she wore whilst arriving at the event.

Head-to-toe, Freida looks stunning in this gilded ensemble.

The wrinkled-on-purpose look is not an easy one to pull off, but Freida does it with elegance.

Fan Bingbing, who is the L’Oreal ambassador for Asia, also joined in the celebrations.

Hailee Steinfeld in Chloë Sevigny for Opening Ceremony – Tod’s & Elle’s December Issue Dinner

Hailee Steinfeld was also in attendance at Tuesday night’s Elle dinner in LA.

The young actress wore a black lazar-cut Chloë Sevigny for Opening Ceremony dress from the Resort 2012 collection.

The pairing of original cool-girl style star, Chloë Sevigny, and Hailee, who is leading the new-wave of stylish young actresses, is a match made in it-girl heaven.

The intricate designs in the leather garment have a great girly-meets-punk feel, while still maintaining some maturity.

However, with such a stand-out dress, we are overloaded with even more ‘notice-me’ styling.

We are fine with the printed jacket and peep-toe booties, but those bright-red tights absolutely ruin what could have been a great moment.

If she needed tights for coverage under the short skirt, black would have worked just fine, or at the very least, a maroon-red to match the jacket.

A severe fishtail braid and natural makeup complete the look.

Edgy or overcooked?

Michael Kors Robertson Boulevard Boutique Opening

Celebs helped celebrate the opening of the new Michael Kors boutique on Robertson Boulevard in LA yesterday evening in support of the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Zoe Saldana: The actress stood out wearing a marigold Michael Kors Spring 2012 fitted dress. Her v-neck dress was teamed with neutral accessories included a Michael Kors Fall 2011 cocoa Quinn snakekskin clutch and Michael Kors Resort 2012 cocoa triple strap sandals.

Minka Kelly: The ‘Charlie’s Angels’ actress donned a fitted Michael Kors Resort 2012 optic white stretch boucle sheath dress with gold leather details. Her favourite nude Brian Atwood pumps completed her look.

Kate Mara: As someone who also owns leopard-print shorts (oh yes I do), I love this look. The actress added a simple white MICHAEL Michael Kors draped tank and a collarless grey leather jacket to her Michael Kors Spring 2012 leopard shorts. Valentino bow-front peep-toes and a Michael Kors Spring 2012 ring lizard envelope clutch added another animal print to her look.

Cat Deeley: The British TV presenter also joined the other stars who opted for a Michael Kors Spring 2012 fatigue dress. Her zip front dress was teamed with knotted sandals, a crocodile leather belt and matching Michael Kors Fall 2011 cocoa crocodile clutch.

Jessica Biel In Roland Mouret – Tod’s & Elle’s December Issue Dinner

Jessica Biel attended a dinner hosted by Elle and Tod’s honoring the star’s December cover at the Chateau Marmount in LA on Tuesday night.

The actress wore a prim taupe ‘Aurora’ dress from Roland Mouret’s Spring 2011 collection which she paired with a Tod’s clutch and Christian Louboutin heels.

We commend Jess for picking such a sophisticated dress for the style-minded dinner, but the cut of this tailored dress is simply not made for her frame.

On Jessica’s athletic build, we lose all movement and fluidity.

I do love the dark hair, though.

Salma Hayek In Giambattista Valli – ‘Puss In Boots’ Buenos Aires Premiere

Salma Hayek attended the Buenos Aires premiere of her latest movie, ‘Puss In Boots’ last night. Yep, it’s still rolling.

The actress donned a Giambattista Valli Resort 2011 dress.

As you can see the actress had the gown modified into a sweet, shorter style, but she kept the grosgrain chain belt.

I haven’t liked the Farah Fawcett flicks she’s been sporting lately, so I’m glad she opted for an extended half-up, half-down look on this occasion.

The actress stayed true to her brands, by adding Gucci Spring 2012 t-bar peep-toes and a Bottega Veneta Lace-effect metal and karung knot clutch.

Jessica Alba In Dolce & Gabbana – Swarovski Elements Private Holiday Dinner

Jessica Alba hosted the Swarovski Elements private holiday dinner at the SoHo House in West Hollywood, California, last night.

The actress, who has got back into her red carpet stride, donned a Dolce & Gabbana nude lace dress.

Whilst the dress is sweet, Jessica’s styling takes it up a notch.

She opted for sultry smoky eyes, pretty glossy lips and soft wavy hair.

It’s great to see Jess back on form.

A beautiful statement necklace with a matching ring and Jimmy Choo Sierra glitter-coated snake-print leather platform sandals completed her look.

Pixie Lott In Paule Ka – ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1′ London Premiere

Pixie Lott hit the red carpet in London on Wednesday night for the U.K premiere of ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1?.

The British singer wore an embroidered shift dress from the Paule Ke Black Carpet Collection.

Given Tuesday’s real-life black carpet for the film’s LA premiere, Pixie may have been inspired to pick this particular collection.

She looks exactly how a pop-star at a Twilight premiere should: sweet, but edgy, with a hint of goth.

The silver embellished neckline and bow adornments keep this short dress from becoming too racy, or worse – boring.

Lace-up booties and a black Miu Miu clutch finish Pixie’s ensemble.

Nikki Reed In Michael Kors – ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1′ New York Screening

Nikki Reed has very much been in the background for the early Twilight promo tours, but this time around she’s really standing out.

It was hard to miss her in this acid-green Michael Kors Resort 2012 dress at ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1’ New York screening last night.

Besides the colour, the sexy halter dress has a sexy thigh-high split, you’ll notice she’s not forcing the issue, with contrasting black trims and cut-out details.

She opted for on-trend lacquered locks and a pinky/red lip colour.

I guess she wants to go out with a bang.

Sidewalk Style: Lady Gaga In Burberry Prorsum

Another day, another Lady Gaga sighting in London.

The singer was spotted leaving her hotel this morning en route to the Children In Need event in Manchester.

As you know I love the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2012 tribal prints, but the first thing that came to mind when I saw Gaga was Mary Poppins.

I think it’s the hat.

Gaga opted for a longer version of the navy skirt which has a twisted detail at the waist.

I would never have pictured Gaga in this collection, and whilst I don’t think it really works as the whole look appears too big for her, I’m fascinated by it at the same time.

Yet again she completes her look with those Christian Louboutin Daffodil pumps, this time in purple velvet, shades and purple driving gloves.
