Emma Watson in Cushnie et Ochs on The Jonathan Ross Show

Emma dropped by The Jonathan Ross Show in London to promote her new movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower wearing this sleeveless, raspberry leather Cushnie et Ochs A-line dress featuring sexy cutouts. 

The young actress styled her look with black Tom Ford lace-up heels. 

Soft, side-swept waves and minimal makeup completed her flirty look. I  am really loving this hairstyle on Emma.

What do you think of Emma's look?

Emma Watson in Christian Dior Couture at the London Screening of The Perks of Being A Wallflower

Emma attended the London screening of The Perks Of Being A Wallflower in this sleek, black Christian Dior Haute Couture menswear inspired ensemble. Her look consisted of a strapless, peplum minidress paired with slim-fitting trousers.

Emma styled her look with pointed, black Dior heels, Boucheron earrings and a sliver Tiffany & Co. keys necklace.

Pinned-up retro curls and a pink lip provided the finishing touches.

I am conflicted on this look. I like that Emma balanced the masculine look with sweet girly touches (the hair and delicate jewels). I do wish the pants had been cropped a bit more at the ankle, I think it would have brought more of an edge to the look.

What do you think? Is this a hit or a miss?

London Fashion Week Spring 2013 RTW: Christopher Kane

Christopher Kane's Spring 2013 RTW collection is an ecclectic blend of rubber, tape and Frankenstein. The collection began with an assortment of white ensembles which included high necklines, long sleeves and straight jacket appeal.  The institutionaized look then became softer as the collection moved into draping dresses in soft pinks, yellows and grays. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Adding a twinge of horror to the colorful, feminine display was the appearance of Boris Karloff as Frankenstein in print on not one, but two of the tops. Blouses and dresses had lace overlays which looked as though they were tied down with black and white electrical tape. Translucent skirts with wired overlays matched the looping wire of the stilettos. 

 

 

 

The models wore minimal make-up with slicked back hairstyles and somber facial expressions. Even though the color palette of the collection was soft and feminine, the detailing of the clothes added a dark, almost sinister twist making the Spring 2013 collection brilliant, yet surprisingly wearable.

London Fashion Week Spring 2013 RTW: Peter Pilotto

Psychedelic, digital prints and exaggerated silhouettes are a dominating presence for Peter Pilotto's Spring 2013 RTW collection. We have come to expect this kind of "sensory overload" aesthetic from Pilotto. Women who want their wardrobe to captivate and entrance onlookers will want to pick up pieces from this collection.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The color palette for the collection involves a vibrant mix of blue, red, yellow, black, white and various hues of greens.

Complex shapes, including flutter sleeves and peplum, combined with eye-popping embroidery, beading and cutout details for an overwhelming range of styles. A standout piece in the collection is the halterneck, dress featuring a peplum top and fit and flare embellished skirt that looks as if it's adorned with little mirrors.

 

 

Thigh-high slits, flirty necklines and shoulder-baring ensembles gave silhouettes a dramatic feel.

Looks were styled with striking, embellished Nicholas Kirkwood cutout heels. The models had barely there makeup and loose, low ponytails with pieces that framed their face, which was absolute perfection as to not distract from the flashy fashions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We hope to see celebrities like Emma Watson, Emma Stone, Jaime King and Kate Bosworth ,who all love bold silhouettes, inject these eccentric, digitally printed pieces into their red carpet wardrobes.

London Fashion Week Spring 2013 RTW: Giles

Black Widows opened the show at the latest Giles collection, starting up with a series of pieces with gorgeous laser-cut cutout looks. The show ranged from ultra chic to hyper avant-garde, especially with the odd pairing of runners matched with the looks.

Regardless of the shoes, the cutout looks were masterfully done, eventually segueing into several other ideas. Including loads of interesting prints, textured textiles, eye-wear and headpieces.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another notable series of thoughts are prints with heavenly horses sprawled out across the fabric. An exploration between the beauty and differences between dark and light, Giles does a stellar job of wrapping up any loose ends despite their being perhaps too many ideas placed into one collection. 

 

 

 

The finale ended on a haunting note, with a disintegrating cobweb dress in black and a wired headdress.

London Fashion Week Spring 2013 RTW: Burberry Prorsum

This was not a typical Burberry Prorsum show.

 With Burberry, the fashion world has come to expect some signature looks, including the khaki and olive-colored trench coats and the signature plaid that has defined the label for decades.

At London Fashion Week Monday, the world got an entirely new view of Burberry: bright metallics, bold colors, and nary a speck of plaid in site (excluding the walls of the venue).

 

 

 

 

 

 

While the tone of the show was largely what people have come to expect from Creative Director, Christopher Bailey (mournful music as models strutted the catwalk in trenches, trying to stave off the presumably upcoming rain showers), there were many noticeable differences.

Metallic fabrics marked many of the pieces, including the Burberry signature trench coat.  The trench itself was turned into a cropped version as well.

 

 

 

Models also wore cropped and full capes. They wore one and two-piece bathing suits and even a refined version of the so-called “bootie short.”

The menswear also got a make-over with models wearing bright blues and pinks with trousers.

The show ended with models coming out, a handful of each wearing the classic trench updated in the bright color palette of the show.

Bailey also kept the styling simple, opting to have many of the models keep their hair under the coats. 

Overall, it was a large departure and a welcome surprise at the same time.

London Fashion Week Spring 2013 RTW: Vivienne Westwood Red Label

 

The only thing more chic, right now, than a designer label is a designer cause. Enter Vivienne Westwood’s Spring 2013 soapbox of a show in London. The British designer has long been vocal about climate change and green living. For her show, she made her models up with radioactive glows, and in a post-show interview kept with her outrageous character. Westwood made claims that she doesn’t care about fashion, doesn’t want to talk about her show, and only cares that fashion is allowing her to spread the word about climate danger. We applaud you Vivienne Westwood for your unwavering dedication over the years.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Westwood takes us back to an interesting take on the 50s and 60s. We see bright hibiscus pinks, neutral greys sitting alongside a sunny yellow, subtle blush tones and yet again, a runway set of statement shoes.

 

 

 

 

 

Westwood was a winner with her subtle check prints, retro circle skirts and fit and flare 1950’s skirt styles. The stylist for the show hit the accessories selection spot on with full size doctor bags in coordinating prints, delicate clutches, driving gloves and a vast array of hats and fascinators. Yet we couldn’t help but feel that the overall quirky touch of Westwood was missing (sans crazy radioactive makeup).

In the Fashion Wrap Up headquarters, we were again thrilled to see the return of a softer female silhouette that compliments all body types. Westwood provided a collection of pieces with well thought out draping and textile manipulations that will flatter any body and be accessorized for your own personal take on conquering the world.
