The House of Holland show is always a big celebrity attraction and was this season was no different. The FROW had all of the usual faces like Pixie Gledof, Leigh Lezark and Alexa Chung but this season Kelly Osborne attended too. The red leather halter neck dress that she wore to attend the show doesn't look particularly good in photos but in person, she actually managed to pull it off.
Eddie Borgo's campaigns are always good. Okay, so maybe that's an understatement but nonetheless, the fact that I can remember at least the last three pretty vividly is a good sign and his latest one illustrates why that is. Rather than sticking with editors (Kate Lanphear and Giovanna Battaglia have starred in his campaigns before), Borgo tapped The Kills front woman Alison Mosshart to front the campaign, and it works.
Mosshart's tough-girl, rocker aesthetic works perfectly with his strong, architectural pieces and unlike other partnerships we've heard about recently, you can actually imagine the musician wearing the pieces anyway. 'I think of his jewellery as sculptures designed with one final angle in mind, us, the moves we make, the turns we take, the rambling bliss of the body in human traffic?' she told WWD. The pairing came about after Lanphear introduced the pair over dinner in Paris. 'I was completely taken when I first saw her perform,' Borgo told style.com. 'She is a poet, a writer, a performer, an artist, an intellectual, and a musician.'
As a relatively new brand, you may not have heard about Maiyet but you definitely will now, as the label has just released this image of Daria Werbowy fronting their latest campaign where she sports some of the key oversized outerwear that we all fell in love with back in February.
But that's not the only reason to take an interest in the brand. The brand's founders Paul van Zyl and Daniel Lubetzky established the brand as a means of using business to promote peace in emerging countries. Like Ali Hewson's EDUN, Maiyet is a socially conscious label and as such, a large portion of their designs are sourced and made in communities in Kenya, India, Indonesia and Cambodia with the aim of helping to stabilise those communities involved.
At the moment the fall collection is available exclusively at Barneys but if you like what you see you'll soon be able to pick pieces up online too.
Olivia Palermo has kept a relatively low profile recently but if you're a fan of hers you'll be pleased to hear that she's been all over New York Fashion Week and will no doubt pop up in the other cities too. One of the shows she did attend last week was Peter Som S/S13 where she opted for those Valentino heels that nobody can get enough off with a pair of printed shorts and a simple sleeveless top.
Raf Simons' debut couture collection has already had more than a handful of red carpet moments but the sheer importance of the debut makes me feel the need to continue to do a bit of Dior couture spotting and the latest star to be given the chance to sport a piece is Jennifer Lawrence.
Over the weekend the 22 year-old actress opted for this printed strapless number teamed with black Dior shoes and a Tiffany & Co, Rubedo rose gold cuff and ring. As a big Dior fan I really wanted to like this look but something doesn't quite work. Lawrence doesn't carry it off quite like Rachel Weisz and Jessica Biel did with their gowns and her new dark hair looks a bit too harsh.
Hailee Seinfeld has been making her rounds at the shows this season and one of the first shows she was spotted at was Peter Som's S/S13 show. For the occasion the actress opted for this green lace dress and black heels.
While the look isn't particularly bad, I can't help but feel disappointed. Steinfeld's outfits on the red carpet have always been so spot on so it's a shame to see her hit a dull note at fashion week, especially as I'm sure that many brands are watching her with the idea of bagging her for a campaign.
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.
The A/W12 collections are officially lining shop floors so you know what that means. Now is the best time to start picking up those pieces that you've been lusting over for the past six months after the shows before they all disappear (coats especially). As you would expect, my shopping list is large. The winter collections are always my favourite and tend to have the best pieces and this pair of dungarees from Topshop is at the top of my list.
In the past I've made a point about staying away from dungarees. The denim styles don't seem to go away (thanks Alexa Chung) and while they may look nice at the front, they're far from flattering at the back making me committed to the idea that they're a style best kept in childhood photos. As you can see, though, the Unqiue style are definitely worth embracing. First up, they're not denim so avoids the whole long bum thing that denim tends to give. The dark velvet will work (and look) brilliant in winter and if you're still not convinced, the easiness of them should persuade you. I mean, all you need to do is pick a shirt to go underneath and you're good to go. What else do you need?
The dungarees are on sale now in Topshop stores and online priced at £175.
Alongside all of the embellishment and prints this season thanks to Miuccia Prada and Marc Jacobs, black leather had quite the comeback. I know what you're thinking: when did it ever go away but if you cast your mind back to this time last year you'll remember that block colour was still having a moment but black leather is officially back on the agenda this season.
This season was just a lot darker on the whole. Riccardo Tisci, who is undoubtedly the king of all things darkly romantic, was one of its biggest protagonists teaming his equestrian themed collection with those heel-hidden boots that everyone's rightfully raving about right now. Gareth Pugh is someone that always plays with leather and this season it came on more wearable asymmetric jackets with oversized lapels and at Gucci, Frida Giannini incorporated it on outerwear too but on cropped bell shapes instead.
As with everything, this is a trend that you can embrace with varying degrees. If you're not afraid of going full hog, invest in a coat like the ones at Versace or do like Kate Moss and buy a long sleeved bod con dress but beware. If you're going to go that way make sure to invest in quality pieces as they can quickly start to look cheap. For those of you that aren't so bold, opt for a shirt with a leather collar or follow Kanye West and Kate Moss by bagging a pair of leather trousers. That's one piece that you can count on season after season.
The last time we saw Keria Knightley she was everywhere and her celebrity had reached a saturation point. Over the last few years, though, she's laid low so when it was confirmed that she would make her big return last night at the premiere of her new movie, 'Anna Karenina', I was really excited and she didn't disappoint.
The actress arrived at the London premiere wearing a stunning pink gown from Chanel's Fall 2012 couture collection, marking the first time that the piece has been seen on the red carpet. While I'm a big fan of Chanel couture, the dresses don't always translate well onto the red carpet but here it definitely did. The delicate sheer sleeves perfectly break up the floral appliqués, which creates enough drama to get us all excited about what else she has in store for the rest of the promotional tour.
