As always the looks on the red carpet at last night's Grammys were a bit hit and miss. Rihanna looked sexy but sophisticated in a black Giorgio Armani gown, Gwyneth Paltrow looked great in a black dress from Stella McCartney and so did Taylor Swift who wore a gold Zuhair Murad couture gown. Unfortunately outfits from Katy Perry, Fergie and Jessie J were disappointing.
The big winner on the night was Adele who looked beautiful in a black sequined Giorgio Armani gown and quite rightly walked away with six awards.
Last night MTV played host to their annual Video Music Awards. Winners on the might include Katy Perry who won the award for Best Video of the Year, Lady Gaga who won the award for Best Female Video and Beyonce who walked away with the award for Best Choreography for 'Run the World (Girls)'.
Despite the stellar performances on the night, that's not what everyne left talking because all eyes were on Beyonce as the 29 year-old star used the event to announce that she's expecting her first child with husband Jay-Z. The mother-to-be shone on the red carpet in a bright orange aysmetric Lanvin dress. Other strong looks came from fellow Destiny's Child bandmate Kelly Rowland, Kim Kardashian and Selena Gomez.
Since the release of 'The September Issue' we've all been spoilt for choice in the fashion documentary stakes. Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel and Fendi and Yves Saint Laurent are only a few names in the string of designers that have fronted their own one-off documentary and now Manolo Blahnik, Pierre Hardy and Christian Louboutin are getting in on the action.
All three shoe designers are set to appear in, 'God Save My Shoes', allowing viewers to access the life of these designers in their ateliers. Set to debut during Paris Fashion Week in October and on French TV, stars like Fergie, Kelly Rowland and Dita Von Teese are all set to make cameos on the show.
Many designers are going minimalist on the runways this season, but not Georges Chakra. The opulent designer (showing in New York under his Edition Georges Chakra line) made red-carpet gowns that would be sure to steal a camera snap or two, courtesy of basket weaving, lame, a full treatment of jewels...take your pick.
While at times it was difficult to pick which direction the eye should go, there were real winners in the likes of a simple, curve-enhancing white shift dress and a pewter-coloured satin gown with a thigh-high slit. We hope that front-row attendees like Kelly Rowland and Beverly Johnson took note.
Max Azria has an infatuation with the minidress, if his Spring '11 collection is anything to go by. The BCBG designer paraded a set of thigh-grazing styles down the runway yesterday, with white and pale grey allowing the silhouettes to speak for themselves. The result? A clean and effortless spring wardrobe for those ready to show a little leg.
Predominantly using free-flowing fabrics like silk and crepe, Azria made fluidity a priority. Even the occasional strapless jumpsuits seemed light and breezy. Pops of orange, pink and canary yellow injected even more youth into the collection, which we could see front-row guests including Alison Brie, Kelly Rowland and Poppy Delevigne snapping up for their wardrobes.
