With attention now on France for Paris Fashion Week, I'm celebrating the most fashionable French females who consistently impress with their sartorial choices. From actresses like Marion Cotillard and Clémence Poésy to models such as Noémie Lenoir and Constance Jablonski, beauties from France have graced red carpets and catwalk shows across the world this year. Take a look at my pick including Eva Green, Audrey Tautou, Carla Bruni, Catherine Deneuve, Juliette Binoche and Carine Roitfeld, and tell me who is most fab!
Last night in Los Angeles, the best of TV talent celebrated the Emmy Awards. British stars did us proud in stunning red carpet numbers, from Cat Deeley's one-shouldered Tadashi Shoji dress to Michelle Dockery's midnight blue Louis Vuitton gown. Michelle was joined by her Downton Abbey costar Joanne Froggatt who was resplendent in Vivienne Westwood, while Kelly Osbourne was on the same fishtail hem page as Cat in a lilac Zac Posen Resort '13 dress. Take a look at their outfits from all angles here, then vote to tell me who was most fab!
At the Philip Treacy Spring 2013 show during London Fashion Week last week, Kelly Brook donned the Issa Cotton-Blend Lace Dress (£660). It was the same number that Gemma Arterton wore front row at the Issa London Autumn/Winter 2012 show at London Fashion Week back in February. British actress Gemma added Christian Louboutin heels and kept the rest of her look simple with barely there makeup and a centre parting, while British model Kelly also teamed the dress with point toe heels, but brought red nails, smoky eyes and gold jewellery to the party. Vote below to tell me who wore it better!
Unsurprisingly, the ankle boot was a firm fixture in the street style of London Fashion Week, but plenty of fashionistas chose to make a feature of what they were wearing inside their booties too. Socks of contrasting shades brought a pop of colour to Fearne Cotton's outfit on Tuesday, when the Radio 1 DJ's pink hosiery peeked out from her buckle tan shoes. The trend extended to the front rows of LFW too, with British model Laura Bailey showing a flash of grey over her black boots at the Christopher Kane show on Monday. More intriguing still was when the look arrived not only in Los Angeles, where temperatures are much warmer than here in the chilly Autumnal UK, but also on the red carpet, on Busy Philipps' ankles at the End of Watch premiere. Tell me: will you be making a feature of your socks this Autumn?
Mulberry's Spring 2013 London Fashion Week show was the hot ticket on Tuesday morning, with a suitably fashionable front row that oozed cool. As one would expect, the bags were just as important as the FROW's clothes, with Vanessa Kirby, Lana Del Rey, Kate Moss, Alexa Chung and Rebecca Hall all toting the British brand's must have arm candy. Take a closer look at who wore what right here, then vote to tell me who was holding the most covetable piece!
Henry Holland's celebrity pals gave us one of the starriest front rows of London Fashion Week so far on Saturday. Kelly Osbourne, Pixie Geldof, Alexa Chung, Poppy Delevingne, Leigh Lezark and Nicola Roberts watched proudly on as Henry's '90s inspired Spring 2013 collection swished down the catwalk. Take a look at each of their outfits in more detail here, then vote to tell me who was most fab!
This week in London, Little Mix's Jesy Nelson wore the Lazy Oaf Batman Dress (£60) with black ankle boots for a trip to Radio 1 studios. The week before, Cheryl Cole teamed the dress with black pumps for a night out in London with her boyfriend, Tre Holloway and Girls Aloud bandmates Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts. The bodycon cartoon number has proved hugely popular and has since sold out, but is expected back in stock on Sept. 20. I'd love to know who you think wore it better, so vote below to let me know!
Last night in London, Kate Middleton showed her recycling sprit once again at the Paralympics opening ceremony. The Duchess of Cambridge donned the DAY Birger et Mikkelsen coat dress that she's brought out for a couple of weddings over the past few years. In July 2011, Kate teamed the Danish label's gold number with a bespoke Gina Foster hat at Zara Phillips' wedding in Edinburgh. Way back in May 2006, the Duchess also wore the coat dress to Laura Parker Bowles' nuptials in Wiltshire. Yesterday, she wore her favourite LK Bennett Sledge Shoes (£145) just like she did at Zara's big day, and kept the gold theme going with her Wilbur and Gussie clutch. At which occasion do you think Kate styled the coat dress best?
The Kardashian sisters have teamed up with Sir Philip Green to expand their clothing line globally. Kim, Kourtney and Khloe are launching Kardashian Kollection in 13 countries this Autumn, with the range being sold in 250 Dorothy Perkins stores in the UK plus concessions in 8 BHS department stores. Arcadia Group's Green said:
"Having reviewed the product with Bruno and the team a few weeks ago, I felt that there was an excellent fit for Dorothy Perkins. I believe our customers will love the fashion looks. They passionately follow celebrity lifestyle, and the Kardashian sisters rank top when it comes to whom they relate to in the fashion stakes."
We can expect billboards, magazines and Dorothy Perkins' windows to be plastered with ads from early November before the retail launch. The new plus-size subbrand Kardashian Kurvy will also be offered to the UK. Are you excited the Kardashian Kollection is heading here?
Following last month's announcement that Kate: The Kate Moss Book will be released in November, it has now been revealed that the coffee table tome will be published with 8 different covers, shot by (clockwise from top left) Craig McDean, Inez & Vinoodh, David Sims, Corinne Day, Juergen Teller, Mario Sorrenti, Mert & Marcus and Mario Testino. Each captures the British model at a different point in her working life, and it will be pot luck which one we receive as the publisher Rizzoli will ship them to customers at random, with all 8 no doubt being collected by fans. Kate created the book herself with Fabien Baron, Jefferson Hack, and Jess Hallett as a retrospective of her career in pictures, including many "never-before-seen" images from her own archives. Vote below to tell me which cover is your favourite!
