Kate Hudson is one of those actresses that you can guarantee will nail anything she wears on the red carpet. While her choices may be safe at times, there's no denying that she can seriously carry off a gown and this look that she wore to the premiere of 'The Reluctant Fundamentalist' during the 2012 Toronto Film Festival is a case in point.
White can be a tricky colour to pull off but the actress looked worked the Alexander McQueen gown to perfection. The make-up was subtle enough to look effortless and glowy whilst also feeling red carpet worthy and to finish off the look she teamed the dress with Tiffany & Co. jewels and an Alexander McQueen clutch. The only thing that I wish is that she'd opted for a delicate strappy sandal rather than the heavy style she opted for.

Yesterday we finally saw the likes of Stella Tennant, Kate Moss and Jourdan Dunn hit the runway at the closing ceremony wearing British designers like Victoria Beckham and Alexander McQueen but the party started before the event.
Ahead of the festivities Naomi Campbell hosted a party in the capital to mark the Olympics but also for her Fashion for Relief charity. As you would expect, the party was full of fashion folk like Vivienne Westwood and Ozwald Boateng but Campbell did actually invite some athletes so British cyclist Dani King was there along, who naturally turned up sporting her gold medal.
Emile Sandé returned to perform at the closing ceremony tonight and sadly her performance were met with the same mixed reviews that her outfit did.
To perform a rendition of Professor Green's 'Read All About It', the singer teamed a pair of Prada brogues with an Alexander McQueen skirt. Considering how big the night is, it was disappointing that she didn't opt for something more fitting for the occasion and going by the tweets, it doesn't look like she'll be able to forget it either.
Regular readers will know just how strongly I feel about the need to have models on the covers of magazines as opposed to celebrities. GwenStefani is an exception to the rule.
Aside from the fact that she's uber talented, she's one of the few celebrities, along with Sarah Jessica Parker and Lady Gaga, whose careers have been so extrinsically linked to fashion that having her on the cover of a September issue makes sense. After all, she is a designer in her own right too.
Today her Terry Richardson-shot US Harper's Bazaar cover dropped and it is everything we could have hoped for. The head piece she rocks on the cover works brilliantly and in the accompanying shoot Stefani sports that beautiful pink Jil Sander dress from Raf Simons' last collection at the house, along with that multi-tiered Alexander McQueen dress too.
There was a time where accessories were all about IT bags. Thankfully, one the whole, that's changed. Today women seem more interested in splashing out on a bag that screams quality and craftsmanship rather than who it was designed by, as is apparent from the current penchant for bags from Celine, The Row and Victoria Beckham. Following suit is Alexander McQueen whose latest bag, the Heroine, is the perfect personification of that shift.
Aside from the flap coming over the handles, the bag is a classic and has the timeless quality that we all want right now, especially when being asked to splash out major dollars. The style, which has already been seen on the arm of Zoe Saldana, is compact but has an expandable feature to make sure the bag always fits whatever you need to carry. If you have your eyes set on it, be prepared to pay because the 'cheapest' style in oxblood suede comes in at £1,345 with prices going up to £22,295 for the black crocodile version.
To celebrate the launch, the brand has teamed up with still life photographer Dan Tibin Smith on their first ever accessory campaign.
This morning the list of the Queen's Birthday Honours list dropped and as many had expected, Sarah Burton was one of the names in the mix.
To say that she's done a great job since taking over the reigns at Alexander McQueen would be an understatement and of course, last year she became a household name across the world after designing Kate Middleton's wedding dress. If there was ever a person to receive the OBE (Order of the British Empire), it's her.
But she's not the only creative director receiving a big nod this year. Mulberry's Emma Hill also made the list, being awarded a CBE and the timing couldn't be better. Last week the brand announced that profits were up last year by 54% and ever since she joined the brand back in 2008, it had continued to go from strength to strength.
Is it me or has Beyoncé completely upped the ante in the style stakes recently? While I've always been a fan of her music, her style hasn't ever particularly appealed to me but that's changed. Like her younger sister Solange, the 30 year-old has really come into her own over the past few years and this outfit is a case in point.
Yesterday the singer was out and about in Paris, where Jay-Z is performing in the French leg of his 'Watch The Throne' tour, wearing this bright yellow shorts suit from Surface to Air. The addition of the Alexander McQueen canvas tiger printed DeManta clutch and Prada flaming wings heels finished off the look perfectly.
With the London Olympics just around the corner, the official opening ceremony isn't the only thing people are talking about. Yesterday reports emerged that some of Britain's biggest models will be involved in the event's closing ceremony on August 12.
All the big names like Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Stella Tennant are expected to appear alongside younger girls like Lily Donaldson and Jourdan Dunn. Each model will allegedly sport the designs of leading British designers like Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood.
Much to her amusement, there's been a revival of interest in Iris Apfel's style over the past year or so.'I think it's funny, because I'm not doing anyting differently than I did 70 years ago,' she told The Cut recently. 'Now all of a sudden I'm an icon, so I guess that's pretty good.' Now the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts, is tapping into that by creating an exhibition in her honour.
Apfel donated 600 items from her personal wardrobe for the exhibition including pieces from Lanvin and Alexander McQueen as well as special flea market pieces that she's picked up over the years. The collection will also feature some of the statement eye wear that she's become known for, as well as art pieces.
British Vogue isn't the only cover that Kate Moss has bagged for June. Yesterday this image dropped showing the model posing on the cover of US Harper's Bazaar's runway report magazine, partnering up with Terry Richardson again. On the cover Moss sports a feathered dress from the much-loved S/S12 Alexander McQueen collection and the accompanying shoot takes place on a sunny beach in Jamaica.
