Your Daily Fashion Scoop
Saturday… the perfect day for some Fashion News (especially when it envolves Kate Moss)…
Miranda Kerr has bared all for a new Photography book V2. Taken by the renowned photographer Russell James, V2 represents the “young goddesses of today”. Kerr’s series of photos are sensational and feature her frolicking on the beach. Another model included in V2 is Brooklyn Decker.
Kate Moss For Isabel Marant
Kate Moss is the face of Isabel Marant’s Fall 2010 campaign. Moss is a perfect fit for the rock’ n’ roll styling, chic yet edgy French brand.
Marant’s Fall collection is a sexy, streamlined take on fifties finesse. Undeniably cool, think sexy skinny black Capri pants hidden under luxurious coats. There are rolled-hem leather pants, baseball-inspired jackets, faded denim jackets, sparkly tees and pointed mid-height bow pumps. 50’s inspired neckties also make an appearance.
Moss is photographed above in my favourite look from the Fall collection. For effortless, bohemian, French style… there is no other brand quite like it.
The Most Powerful Woman In Fashion
The First Lady, Michelle Obama, is now believed to be the most powerful person in fashion. This is the case as the economic value of the brands she chooses to wear have been boosted in total of up to $2.7billion. Jason Wu is one such designer who has been pushed into the spotlight. Wearing one of Wu’s designs to the inaugural ball in January 2009, the label is now stocked around the world and his New York Fashion Week show a must-see.
Best Dressed Straight From The Runway
This week celebrities embraced looks straight from the Catwalk. Blake Lively looked stunning in a Lanvin look from the Fall2010 collection. Michelle Williams chose one of my favourite pieces from Erdem’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection. Meanwhile, a glowing Claire Danes worked the ladylike look in a red Prada Fall2010 dress. And finally Freida Pinto worked a Marchesa Resort2011 embellished gown. Such gorgeous ladies and such spectacular gowns…xx

London Spring/Summer 2011 – Favourites 1
Known for his exquisite floral patterns and embroidery, Erdem’s Spring / Summer collection went above and beyond to surpass my wildest expectations. My favourite Erdem collection to date, the delicate beauty and pure loveliness of the pieces were summer dreams personified.
White appliqué on white chiffon with white lace; scattered Swarovski crystals; striking red lace; delicate, vivid embroidered poppy prints – each Erdem piece was simply perfect . Erdem was inspired by the Victoria & Albert Museum’s ‘Diaghilev and the Golden Age of the Ballets Russes, 1909-1929’, exhibition. This was clearly evident within the collection, where the dress shape and structure had the feel of beautiful ballet dresses. Dresses were pulled in at the waist and fell to A-line or tiered lace hemlines. There were also immaculately tailored trousers and shorts with beautiful silk blouses. Nicholas Kirkwood’s shoes were tied up the calf like ballet slippers.
My Erdem Most Coveted piece:
With so many exquisite looks to choose from, my favourite Erdem pieces would have to be the white lace blouse over the striking red lace dress. The simple red lace dress that followed straight after was also amazing! (both pictured line one)
Burberry was dreaming of a high-voltage biker girl for the Spring/Summer 11 collection. With pops of intense colour, luxe leather and gold spiked jackets; the Burberry girl is undeniably fierce and not to be messed with!
Biker jackets and coats were detailed with striking gold spikes for a chic, tough and edgy alternative to the traditional biker. Trench Coats and jackets were pulled in tight at the waist with bright lime green and turquoise belts. Sexy leopard print and coloured mini silk dresses were softly ruched around the body. Equally vibrant coloured handbags were worn mismatched and clutched at the models’ side. Other dresses were held in place with leather straps. With the extent of looks and all of the exquisite jackets and coats (which also made appearances in snakeskin, metallic silver and a complete palette of military shades), Burberry has every facet of your Spring/ Summer wardrobe sorted.
A true feast for the eyes; the clothes, shoes, accessories and star-studded front row make the Burberry collection the hottest ticket at London Fashion Week.
My Burberry Must-have:
The first jacket to appear on the catwalk (pictured first above), will easily become my Spring must-have. Love the green belt too!
Perfectly setting the mood for Summer; Issa’s bold, vibrant colour palette left a strong impression.
Inspired by the exotic, colourful landscape of India, Issa’s colours included: canary yellow, intense oranges and greens, sapphire blue and royal purple. When combined these colours really made an impact. Mismatched turbans were worn by models, along with jewelled sandals, and chandelier earrings. Maxi and mini dresses were beautifully draped to hug the models’ bodies, with the silk-jersey fabric creating elegant, long lines. Long skirts and trousers were worn with midriff showing tops. Pure white embroidered sundresses also made an appearance.
While the Indian summer inspiration was abundantly clear, the collection felt fresh and alive.
My Issa Essential:
The cropped fuchsia pink top coupled with the long zesty orange skirt – both certainly make lounging by the pool a spectacular affair. (pictured line one, image 2 above)
