Herve Leger New York Fashion Week

Apart from loving the fact that all the designers are making the shows more accessible for us I am also dying for it to be AW10 because some of the looks on the runway i would give both my kidneys for...
Just a quick low down of some of the outfits that i feel are fit for kidney donation.. from the Herve Leger A/W10 collection.
This 1st outfit was an absolute stand out for me. The detail in the Jacket is exquisite and a little reminiscent of the Jaeger jacket from A/W 08 but with a more sculpted look. It is slimming , edgy and feminine in one and the trousers are oh so fab! Please let me be a stone lighter and a millionaire in time to buy this outfit!!

Another look that caught my eye and one that people have been saying is a perfect Cheryl Cole outfit, is this fab high necked dress with futuristic detailing and that oh so flattering hip detail. Of course Cheryl Cole would look great in this... she would look great in a bin bag. But I would rather see Dannii Minogue wear this one as she would give it more edge with her unconventional up-do's
The entire collection was I think what we have all come to expect from a Herve Leger collection. A bodyconaliscious selection of bandage dresses of various shades and shapes, but this collection had a few stand out details, two of which are pictured above. For me the more futuristic looks with the repeated square detailing and scale like patterns had more wow factor especially in the high gloss materials. The other looks that caught my eye were the knitted looking dresses a little reminiscent of the Mark Fast S/S10 dresses, but for me personally this version is a much more glamorous look.

NY Fashion Week - Betsey Johnson

Another designer that I really enjoy is Betsey Johnson, I have 3 or 4 of her dresses that are my pull outs and use again for weddings and party's as they are a little tongue in cheek and they only have 1 UK stockist in Covent Garden.
Her A/W10 collection had a Wild West theme with a hay covered runway and looks with very obvious references to saloon girls, vagabonds, cowgirls and robbers! As usual some of the looks were very wearable and others not at all, but a few of my favourites were...

I think this look is really wearable and styling is great fun with the yellow accent...

The print of this dress is adorable, i hope this is one of the designs that she releases early as it would make a great wedding outfit (perfect for my cousins festival wedding)

This dress with bodice over the top would look great for any girl about town with black tights and a bowler hat!
Kelly Osbourne also looked fab on the runway for the designer, I hope we get to see her in some more shows this season..

As well as having some great outfits and a show with with a really fun feel and references to Valentines day, Betsey Johnson also made a massive nod to the passing of Alexander McQueen with this tribute at the end of her show.

Keep your eyes peeled for some of these looks as Betsey releases some of her looks early, so they could be available within the month!

Alexander McQueen 1969 -2010

Alexander McQueen has been a fashion genious from start to finish.. Inspiring us, shocking us and dressing us.

His designs were not just garments but works of Art that every man and women want to wear. I have put together a few images and clips of the designs i love the most.

The creation of Art..
The Kate Moss Hollogram..
My all time favourite...

This glorious dress from A/W08/09

This beautiful frothy lace dress from A/W 06/07

More recent his Alice in Wonderland esque A/W 09/10

The Dress that was my first introduction to McQueen when i watched the S/S01 video which i found inspirational..

Then we have this divine S/S10 dress which Dannii Minogue is wearing on the cover of Glamour this month!!
It is very sad when someone so young and talented dies.

Muscle Maddness

I am loving the DSQUARED2 adverts....
BUT, I am hating the guy in the orange shorts muscles! Especially the ones above the shorts.. Yuk. Is it me or does anyone else find that so overdone and visually off putting?

Grammy Awards 2010

I adore red carpet events! There are always fashion mistakes.. fashion fabulous moments and those blah dresses that say nothing!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Lady Gaga's crazy fashion moments, the Armarni Privi dress was otherworldly and so impractical but exquisite and the second outfit was just so cheeky!!!! This lady will go down in Fashion History and I can't wait to see what she pulls out of the hat next!

Rihanna also kept to her edgy fashion look embracing her trade mark shoulders but this time it seemed much more feminine and delicate with the frothy feathers on her Ellie Saab gown! Full marks from me as it mixed glamour, femininity and edgy in one look!

I also have to mention how gorgeous Nicole Kidman looked... thank god she has ditched the pale frilly numbers we have been seeing her in of late. She looked every inch the superstar in the Prada gown.

Jennifer Hudson also looked fab in a Victoria Beckham gown, it hugs her curves in all the right places!! I want me this dress...

Fashion Blah moment...

Keri Hilson wore the fab Dolce and Gabbana mermaid dress but having seen the same dress on Gary Barlows wife Dawn in the OK photos of there marriage renewal, it seemed a bit.. well.. Blah.

I also felt very underwhelmed by Fergie's cobalt Blue Emilio Pucci dress... sexy it was exciting it was not!

Then we have the what were you thinking's... Guess who, yes Britney! Why is she so capable of turning a fab outfit into something slightly trashy? and why does her stylist let her? This Dolce and Gabbana outfit is not for the faint hearted it being sheer and all, but Britney wearing it makes it seem cheep! They need to glam her up in a much more subtle way! That way people might stop thinking she is crazy.. but as it stands I am still not convinced!
