Marchesa’s SS’14 show this New York Fashion Week was brim full of elegant, floaty, gothic gowns galore. The intricate detailing, sheer fabrics and fluid lines left me swooning! As red-carpet worthy as always.
Phew!! Was there a single catwalk in the past fashion month that Cara Delevigne did not walk?! The British model du jour, Cara appeared in 28 shows over the course of New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks, making her the most booked model of the season. Cara walked for Burberry, Matthew Williamson, Marchesa, Jason Wu, Rag & Bone, Fendi, D-Squared, Sass & Bide, Mary Katrantzou, Ermanno Scervino, Acne, Marc Jacobs... And the prestigious list goes ON! This girl deserves a BIG holiday (and a foot rub...)
And behind the scenes... Some of Cara's Tweets. What's NOT to love about this girl?!!
Keren Craid and Georgina Chapman delivered the Indian Summer I had been praying for with their stunning collection of beaded gowns with sari style layering. Although the Marchesa designers used a vivid colour palette (fuchsia and garnet featured) it was the shimmering white gowns with their sparkling bodice detailing that had me entranced.
I love the Golden Globes…
As Ricky Gervais observed in his opening gambit this weekend, they are to The Oscars what Kim Kardashian is to Kate Middleton, “a bit louder, a bit trashier, a bit drunker.”
One BIG similarity with the two award ceremonies however, is their focus on the dresses…
Here are my favourites of the night...
Below (L-R): Jessica Alba is always impeccably perfect - in Gucci, Emma Stone is my red carpet crush - in Lanvin, Charlize Theron looks completely dreeeeamy in Dior - the winner.
Below (L-R): Angelina Jolie’s flashes of red in Atelier Versace, Michelle Williams is always unique - in Jason Wu, Rachel Evan Wood dramatically ruffling feathers in Gucci Première.
Below: I am sorry Ladies, but I just was not a big fan of your choices…
(L-R) Elle MacPherson - TuTu much In Zac Posen, Lea Michele is a bit too ‘flashy,’ in Marchesa, Sarah Michelle Gellar – Spilt. Paint. Everywheeere. In Monique Lhuillier.
Below (L-R): Charlize Theron and Michelle Williams both decided to wear delicate headbands – I feel a new red carpet trend for 2012 may have just begun…
I have been left excited to see award winning film, ‘The Artist,' a romantic French film directed by Michel Hazanavicius, starring Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo.
The story takes place in Hollywood between 1927 and 1932 and focuses on a declining male film star and a rising actress, as silent cinema grows out of fashion and is replaced by the ‘talkies.’ Most of the film itself is silent; it is shown in black-and-white, and Jean Dujardin also won the Best Actor Award this weekend at the Golden Globes.
Louise Roe: Television presenter, fashion journalist, stylist, shoe fanatic...
Having first graced our screens as a glossy cast member on MTV’s The City, Louise Roe fast and fabulously became a regular face on all the most glamourous of red carpets interviewing Hollywood's finest. Covering the recent MTV Movie Awards, VMA’s and EMA’s, co-hosting E!’s live coverage of the Royal Wedding, Louise also presents the MTV reality makeover show ‘Plain Jane,’ where she transforms women, inside and out, with the help of a new wardrobe and confidence-building exercises, in order to surprise their secret crushes.
Alongside her presenting, Louise has designed a range of shoes and jewellery for StylistPick.com, fronted several campaigns over the last few years (stylish and hot – her legs are endless…) and she has somehow managed to find the time to share her fashion wisdom and advice in Elle, Vogue.com, In Style, Glamour, Cosmopolitan… and now with us at The London Chatter!
