Let It Snow, Let It Snow,
Let It Snow… At Burberry

Not only did Burberry live-stream their Fall 2011 collection online across the globe; London was given an even better view. Thanks to Vitamin Water and the British Fashion Council who sponsored a spot on Piccadilly Circus, the show was live-streamed for everyone walking by to watch! With a collection full of spectacular coats in an assortment of colours and fabrics, the Burberry show came to an epic finale… falling snow! The coats, the clothes, the snow… one of the most beautiful fashion spectacles I have ever seen! And it gets even better! For the next week you can buy direct from the runway at Burberry.com and have the items delivered to your door within 7 weeks! Burberry just leaves me speechless…

Don’t Tell Anyone….
Tom Ford Showed At London Fashion Week

Tom Ford’s Fall 2011 collection was presented at London Fashion Week and was again a top secret affair. The collection was treated as a top secret event, with guests believed to have signed a nondisclosure agreement before viewing the collection. No sneaky iPhone pics or bloggers at this show! Of the reason behind this, Ford said: “I don’t want to be reviewed, I’m not an artist with an opening; this is not a film. I’m just trying to make pretty clothes. And beautiful clothes make beautiful women, but sometimes they don’t make fashion news”…

While everyone has been talking about the costumes for Black Swan, and all the controversy surrounding who designed what; another fashion house has collaborated with an Oscar Nominated designer. Raf Simons for Jil Sander was commissioned by costume designer Antonella Cannarozzi to create the looks for Tilda Swinton’s character, Emma Recchi in the film I Am Love. Antonella Cannarozzi is Oscar Nominated for the film…

Happy London Fashion Week Everyone! xx

Chic This Week

The Best Dressed Ladies Of The Week Are…

Kate Bosworth, Blake Lively, Leighton Meester & Kylie Minogue all stepped out looking stunning this week in some of my favourite designer looks from the Spring / Summer 11 & Autumn / Winter 10 collections! 

The looks on the catwalk…

1>> Kate Bosworth looked divine in an Erdem Spring / Summer 2011 look. The white lace and red embroidered flowers are sophisticated, feminine and simply perfect!

2>> Meanwhile, Blake Lively was style personified in Versace. This Gossip Girl’s fashion style is continually evolving and I am loving her red carpet looks of late.

3>> While in Madrid for ‘Herbal Essences’; another Gossip Girl, Leighton Meester, wore a black dress from the Versus Autumn / Winter 2010 collection. A classic little black dress at it’s best!

4>> And finally, Kylie Minogue performed at the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade wearing a look from the Chanel Fall 2010 collection. The tweed coat with faux fur trims looks delightfully warm yet oh-so chic!    

Who is your best dressed this week? xx
