I went to the 2010 BAFTA TV Awards on Sunday as a reporter for AllSaints. I headed down to the red carpet ready for all the stars of the small screen to arrive. Here’s what happened….
Loving bralets – especially the massive range Topshop are stocking! It’s just a shame they don’t always make these beauty lingerie masterpieces in my size, rubbish Topshop!!

My oh my! Kimberly Walsh, of Girls Aloud fame, looks absolutely amazing in the new campaign images for New Look.
Though I personally don’t like New Look Kimberly actually makes their clothes look half decent. To be fair, she might aswell be dressed up in bin bag, she’d still look fantabulous! Kimberly does join a good list of celebs to model for the high street brand, others include Drew Barrymore, Agyness Deyn (both for the Giles Deacon GOLD collection), Lily Allen (for her own collection ‘Lily Loves’) and more recently Alexa Chung. Not bad pet!
I’d kill for curves like Kimberly’s! JESSICA RABBIT EAT YER HEART OUT!!
So what do you think of Kimberly’s modelling debut?

DAY TWO: Saturday 21st February 2009.
Today is the day I was looking forward to seeing… a few of my favourite designers were showcasing their A/W collections; including, Vivienne Westwood (especially!), Peter Jensen, UNIQUE by Topshop. What I am beginning to notice is the fact a lot of designers are playing their collections very ‘safe’. This is a direct result of the current economic climate; people are wanting to spend their money on much more hardwearing, simple pieces that will become wardrobe staples, rather than a one-off ‘party piece’.
Vivienne Westwood: RED LABEL.
-Daisy Lowe walks for Vivienne Westwood.
At first, I thought Vivienne Westwood had kept it a little too ‘safe’ with her Red Label A/W 09 collection; but after looking over at the photographs again, I absolutely LOVE it and cannot wait for it to hit stores. Theres lots of Viv’s signature textiles in there (tartan, harlequin, tweed, wool) and the signature shapes and forms. She hints back at the pirate era and heritage for this, very cosy, looking new collection. Daisy Lowe and Alice Dellal were amongst her wonderful models to walk the A/W 09 collection.
UNIQUE by Topshop.
UNIQUE looks to the future for their A/W collection. Not terribly sure how wearable this actually is; regardless of this, its definitely grabs your attention! The clothes are very art inspired with lots of decadent detail; I just cant wait to see the prices for this collection to be honest. A few hit and miss prints mixed with sequins and black dominates. The collection screams attitude, rave and technology as we’re faced with boiler suits, oversized hoods and quirky tailoring.
Margaret Howell’s A/W collection has left me a little confused… although, indeed, it is a lovely simple collection, it is very ‘light’, in the sense, that I feel it looks alot more like a S/S collection. Lots of shorts and sleeveless garments, not terribly practical for winter! The staple of the collection is however, knee high socks, a rather playful and endearing addition to the collection I thought. Some really nice tailoring and lovely ‘cruise’ pieces. A really nice colour palette of greys, white, slate, light blue. Overall, I really enjoyed this collection, despite the lack of thought for the English Weather!
Ms AS. Back A/W 09 collection is just beautiful. Imagine a spell-binding mix between BeetleJuice (the film!), Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas, all juggled up with a Wedding and then thrown backwards through the darkest night. The models looked majestic with pale white faces and white stockinged legs. Feathers play a key focus to the collection as well as Hallows Eve. Oversized knits are emblazoned with BOO! and illustrations, while the more sophisticated end of the collection boasts high waisted carrot trousers and complicated sheer blouses. Ann-Sofie is definitely one to watch for 2009!
