BAFTA TV Awards: The Red Carpet.


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….

We couldn't believe it when Jane Lynch (Sue Sylvester!) turned up! She looked lovely in Armani...

....but then an even bigger surprise came when Tim Burton rocked up!

Ah the lovely Brian Cox looked very dashing in a Paul Smith suit.

We got a bit of a shock when this lady turned up! Fashion faux-pas?

Ah here come the girls! (L-R) AW10 preview dress, Veridian Tux, Shivali Corset Dress and Embellished Cavalry Dress; all by AllSaints.

Olivia Lee wore Treasure Earrings, Shivali Corset Dress, Celestine Heels and Tia Bracelet; all by AllSaints.

We loved her Vintage pearly clutch!

The Secret Garden Dress.


Secret Garden Dress, £160, AllSaints.


I saw the illustrator of this dress hard at work, illustrating this print, last year… and I’ve loved it ever since. SO, when the dress was finally delivered into stores and online at AllSaints.com I desperately had to have it! I bought the Secret Garden Dress from the Market Place branch of AllSaints this week. LOVE IT!

This amazing hand illustrated print also comes printed on the below styles…

Secret Garden Bikini Top, £25, AllSaints.

Aggy Takes A Tumble: TWICE.


So Naomi Campbell arranges a catwalk to raise money for Haiti and Aggyness Deyn felt the need to pay homage to the great supermodel – by falling down the runway; TWICE.

Naomi Campbell once fell on the runway whilst wearing Vivienne Westwood heels….

Watch the clip below of Aggy taking her two tumbles… LOL.

I know it’s probably quite mean, but I can’t stop laughing at this clip! Sorry aggz.

To follow on my superstitious education…


Unfortunately, my Touch Wood necklace by Vivienne Westwood is sitting in my purse, instead of around my neck. I’ve been much too superstitious whilst wearing it. I’ve actually worn the wood and the link out so much that it fell of the chain 😦

So to carry my superstitiousness on, I’ve finally found the perfect horse shoe necklace 😀 I just hope it doesn’t turn upside down!

BOOM!

New Purse: CHANEL Zipped Wallet.


It’s my birthday coming up and well, my Vivienne Westwood purse is on it’s last legs really;/ SO I thought it might be the perfect opportunity to grow my CHANEL family.

After looking at lots of leather goods I’ve found my perfect purse – The CHANEL Zipped Wallet in Caviar leather – to match my Caviar 2.55, which also has gold hardware. BOOM.

One slight issue – can’t find the cost online, anyone know this?

Model: A13228 Y01864 94305

Also, which is the best London boutique these days? When I got my 2.55 Bond Street was best…

My Wardrobe Favourites: Vivienne Westwood Red Label Skirt.


Red Label Hitched Skirt – £280, purchased from Vivienne Westwood Boutique, Newcastle, June 2008.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label hitched skirt with brown orb side button and signature lining. This is my favourite piece of Viv, but I’ve only worn it once – ever! So if there was a reasonable offer I may be willing to sell, as long as she was to go to a good home:)

London Fashion Week Round-up: DAY TWO.


London Fashion Week A/W 2009.

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!


Ann-Sofie Back.

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!
