Alexander McQueen Memorial LFW

 Sarah Jessica Parker sheds a tear for McQueen

Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Sarah Jessica Parker and Anna Wintour took a break from London Fashion Week today to attend Alexander McQueen's memorial service.

 Kate wore a leather pencil skirt tuxedo jacket & Louboutin heels whilst Naomi wore a McQueen feater creation & gold heeled boots

The celebrities paid homage to the 40 year old British fashion designer, who committed suicide in February.

McQueen who began his career as an apprentice at a Savile Row tailor's Anderson & Sheppard, was one of the most respected figures in the fashion industry.

He was best known for his daring creations and my one of my favourite pieces from his collection, the skull scarf.

According to the rumours, they've split up, but that didn't stop Kanye Wests' ex, Amber Rose, turning up to London Fashion Week!

Break up or no break up, that didn't stop Amber from appearing at London Fashion Week!  The model was spotted in the front row of several shows including PPQ and Topshop and also modelled for the Body Amr fashion show.

Of course, Amber dressed to impress in everything from Julian McDonald to Pam Hogg.  What was your favourite outfit?

Best dressed award goes to Olivia Palermo  who posed with her favourite Mulberry bag, a georgous purple and red dress and grey shoe-boots.  I'm loving Olivia's new hairstyle, the shorter length really suits her!

Solange the Fashionista

Is it me or ever since Solange Knowles cut her hair, the singer has surprised us all with her fashion-forward style?  Who knew Solange had it in her?!

Solange was spotted in New York yesterday for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week looking fab!

 Beyonce who?! It's all about Solange!

I loved the black ruffled top and matching black shorts (shorts are definately my one of my favourite pieces of the season!) But its the accessories that made this outfit.  The makeup is simple but yet effective especially the  bold rouge lips.  

 Solange Knowles, the fashionista
Her bangles compliment her leopard print  clutch bag (another fave of mine!) but it is the shoes that I am in ♥ with.  Not sure on the designer but they are a striking resemblance to Alexander McQueen heels. Do you remember my fashion video on my love of McQueen's hoof style boots? Well seems like I'm not the only fan! Although I love the boots, I have always struggled to work out the best way to wear them but Solange wears them well with the shorts and blouse.

Today, she showed up to support her sister, Beyonce, who was due to walk the runway for designer, Tom Ford's new collection.

Go Solange!

MTV VMA Awards 2010

Last night was the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) held in Los Angeles.

It was a star-studded event with everyone from Lady Gaga to Usher attending the awards.

Who remembers last year's VMA awards when Kanye West did his (in)famous interruption during Taylor Swift's award acceptance speech? Well he certainly made up for last year's antics! Kanye and Taylor joined forces and did a show-stopping performance.

Lady Gaga swooped the awards show, winning a total of NINE VMAs.  But it was her outfits that really stole the show...

 Lady G wore Alexander McQueen and also paid tribute to the late British designer


Out of all her outfits, this Georgio Armani leather number was my favourite


But it was the "meat" dress that made headlines...I wouldn't personally but I guess that's why they call her Gaga!


 I loved Katy Perry's Marchesa dress and her Jimmy Choo shoes.. them!

Florence Welch wore a glittery gold Givency dress..quirky but it works!

Rosario Dawson (l) looking stunning in blue leather number and Ciara rocked a georgous black and white Givency dress - fierce!


Audrina wore a cute Issac Mizrahi dress but why does she look so skinny?! Stephanie (l) wore a Nicole Miller maxi dress and Lo (r) wore a gold Gabriela Cadena mini.


 Usher and his protege, Justin Beiber (r)


 Rihanna and Katy Perry puckering up to Justin Beiber

 Look at Katy Perry's nails - Russell painted on them how sweet!

Tony Blair Memoirs - A Journey - Review


Tony Blair's memoirs

Tony Blair’s highly anticipated memoirs, A Journey, has finally been released. Over 600 pages of political revelations, the book has leapt on to Amazon’s top sellers list.

So what can readers expect from the former Primer Minister’s autobiography?

The blurb reads, “the memoirs reveal in intimate detail this unique political and personal journey, providing an insight into the man, the politician and the statesman.”

I’ve seen extracts revealed by most of the national newspapers. It seems success, controversies and disappointments are the main themes throughout the book. Featuring Blair's take on his relationship with Gordon Brown, the Iraq War, his election as Labour leader in 1994, the death of Diana, Princess of Wales and the Northern Ireland peace talks, this indeed will make an interesting read.

Tony Blair

Though will the book outsell Margaret Thatcher’s, The Path to Power? It sold an estimated half-a-million copies making it the highest selling British political memoir ever. Time will tell!

Blair will be signing copies of his autobiography at Waterstone’s Picadilly branch on 8th September at 12:30. Will you be there??

Aviator Jacket Love | Want | Need


Burberry Aviator Jacket...Love ♥ Want Need!

If you buy only one jacket this Winter, let it be the Aviator  jacket by Burberry.

The key jacket this season comes in chocolate brown cropped leather and chunky sheepskin. Burberry have done it again. Not only do they design georgous Macs but they’ve now turned there hand at urban-chic, an alternative to the miserable looking dull heavy wool jackets usually on offer in stores during this A/W season. Yawn!

Net-A-Porter has sold out its stock of Burberry Aviator  jackets which shows how popular this jacket is. Though even if they DID have it in stock, it is selling at a mere £2,000. Gulp. My thoughts exactly! Nevertheless, do not fret readers! The high street does not disappoint with their offers of the “It” jacket of the season.


Topshop £325



Matalan £30 available from October!



Oasis £150


River Island £59.99

Yes the Burberry Aviator Jacket is the crème de la crème, though no matter which version you decide to buy. whether it is high street or high end, the Aviator should be on every fashionista’s wishlist…including mine! ♥

Jimmy Choo & Uggs create Chuggs!


What do you get when you mix two of the world's most successful footwear brands Jimmy Choo and Ugg?

Chuggs of course! Tamara Mellon, Jimmy Choo President and Founder, announced a design collaboration with UGG® Australia.

It will be a limited edition women's sheepskin footwear products available in stores and on the Jimmy Choo website from October 2010. 

Tamara Mellon said: "Other than Jimmy Choo, UGG Australia is the only other footwear I have in my wardrobe. We are delighted to have created a special capsule that captures the best of both brands - the legendary comfort of UGG with the spirit of Jimmy Choo."

I could do with a new pair of Uggs this winter. The image below is actually taken from Nicky Hilton's twitter - she didn't waste anytime blogging her new Chuggs! I quite like the mix of stars and fringing on the Chuggs though would definately like to see what they look like up close *hint hint Tamara, holla atcha girl! ;-)



Jimmy Choo + Ugg = Chugg
