…This by Peter Som. It is so nice!! I am a big fan of blue as it is but throw in a bit of sparkle and a boyfriend belt and you got me hook line and sinker.
In a completely different city and for a completely different reason the fashionistas of a different breed gathered on the red carpet for New York Fashion Week…. this is literally just the tip of the iceberg with regards to how much amazing clothes there was, but they are my favourite so they get preferential treatment I guess. Ha!
Herve Leger did not disappoint, the pale pink dress above almost brought a tear to my eye, simply beautiful. The subtle colourings and the sparkle of sequins gave the whole collection an angelic feel.
Hailing all the way from my wee city, Glasgow, Jonathan Saunders totally lit up New York with his fab designs and mouthwatering colours. With a magnificent mix of fabrics, materials and textures he really showed the world his ability to drape the female form in the most flattering of manners. I predict that similar styles to the three outfits I chose above will be working their way onto the high street, not only because of their excellent design but simply for the fact that they can easily be adapted for the ordinary (but still fabulous) gal like me and you.
Channeling all those rock chicks out there Alexander Wang showcased a fun collection that had an undeniable 80s vibe running through it… Guns ‘n’ Roses meets Miami Vice. The combination of black and pastels looks brill, I really really love it! Note the fringing and leather accessories, surely a must for winter.

Jeezo there has been a lot of red carpet lovin this weekend!
Starting with MTV VMA, here’s some of my fav’s.
It has been a long time since Christina has graced the red carpet… she’s been off making babies, and she is deffo a milf… but I am not really like the fringe or the morticia eyes. I preferred the 50’s pin up Christina better!
OK I think Katy Perry is the one who sang about kissing girls. Anyways kissing girls or not, hats off at her courageous outfit! It kinda works in a burlesque way but then really doesn’t in the fact that I think her shoes clash and the pattern on the basque looks wrong. Wee Miley Cyrus looks dapper too.
Is it just me or does Rihanna look like a X-Men character or something! Lol! Maybe its the streak of blonde in her hair or the Wonderwoman like pose… I like the outfit, a bit bland for Rihanna though.
Woo Hoo! Our pop princess is back! Britters looks just like she did pre-mental meltdown. I’m not too fussed on the dress, it’s kinda a typical Britney number but good to see the gals looking a bit more sane!

Keira Knightley premiered her new flick the Duchess last night in this stunning Alexis Mabille couture dress. I feel like I should hate this dress there’s something about it that I can’t put my finger on that doesn’t seem right… however, I don’t hate it, I have grown to love it! I like the colour, the netting, the 80’s vibe but I find her skinniness a little disturbing! Look at how knobbly her knees are! Don’t get me wrong Keira Knightley is stunning but she looks like she’s rattling around in this dress, I just want to feed her a big bowl of soup to get some meat on those knobbly knees of hers!
Doesn’t she look fab?
I think Alexa Chung is pretty awesome, funny because I tend to think that most of the girls that come from her T4 rock chick breeding (Miquita Oliver, Lily Allen) are all a bit annoying! They kinda think they are bit too cool for skool, but with Alexa she kinda seems more fun and nice whilst still maintaining a good level of sarcasm! She also wears pretty rocking clothes too!
