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.
Yesterday LOVE magazine revealed a sneak peak of the Prada Fall 2012 campaign and now it's finally here. According to the press release, the Steven Meisel-lensed campaign used 'shifting camera angles and endless depth of field [to] create a playful illusion of perspective and proportion, recalling the setting for a videogame.'
Models Elza Luijendijk, Magdalena Frackowiak, Vanessa Azente, Anne V and Iselin Steiro appear sporting those statement geometric shape printed suits that we all fell in love with back in February.
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.
When Miuccia Prada sent Gary Oldman, Jamie Bell, Willem Dafoe and Garrett Hedlund down the runway at Prada's fall menswear show it became a no brainer that al four stars would appear in the brand's Fall 2012 campaign. Now the first image of the David Sims-shot campaign is out.
According to a release, the diverse line-up of actors is supposed to 'represent a cross-generational broadening of the face of Prada Menswear,' and the campaign is supposed to look like a portrait that would be hung in a modern palace. The only person missing is Adrien Brody, who also walked in the show earlier on this year.
IPO's have been a major topic of conversation recently. Michael Kors and Prada successfully went public a little while back and of course, the controversy surrounding Facebook's entry onto the stock market has meant that it's a topic that's not going away any time soon. Now it looks like Versace might follow suit.
It's no secret that the family-owned business flirted with the idea of going public back in 1997 but after the death of Gianni Versace and a string of financial problems, any such discussions fell apart. But things are really turning around for the house. This year marked the first time it has been profitable since 2009, which it marked with a return to couture in January after an eight-year hiatus. If there was ever a time to appeal to potential investors, then, it's now.
Miranda Kerr has never done too badly when it comes to her modelling career but it's over the last few years that we have really seen her career catapult in fashion circles. Like Joan Smalls, her career before was mainly commercial but recently things have really changed for her. Aside from her role as a Victoria's Secret Angel, Kerr has walked for everyone from Prada to Balenciaga and has appeared in magazines like Harper's Bazaar and Vogue Italia.
Ironically, though, all of the changes took place after she found out she was pregnant. 'At the moment I'm trying to do 60/40 - I spend most of my time at home being a mother and only work on jobs that I really love and with brands that I really want to work with,' she told Vogue.com when asked about the pressures. 'I've cut back quite a bit because especially the travelling can be too much and my son is obviously my number one priority. It's working out well at the moment because I'm doing fun jobs here and there and getting to spend lots of time with my boys.'
Carey Mulligan looked incredible on Monday night in her Prada creation at the Met Gala and if, like me, you were a fan the dress, you just might be able to get your hands on it. Yesterday the actress put the dress up for sale on eBay with a starting bid of $500.
The auction isn't aimed at benefiting the co-chair personally, as all of the proceeds of the sale will go directly to Oxfam, which means that you can bid today guilt free. You haven't got much time though because the bidding ends on May 19 and so far there have been seven bids with the highest sitting at $1,025.
Anticipation for this year's Met Gala was high and the event definitely didn't disappoint. While it's true, there were several disappointing looks from people like Coco Rocha and Jessica Chastain, the majority of the looks were really strong and it was really good to see people research and commit to this year's Schiaparelli theme.
The above is a round-up of my favourite looks. Regular readers will know that I was on the dubious side about Joseph Altuzarrateaming up with Lana Del Rey but I was pleasantly surprised by the results. Her dress, along with her new dark hair, looked beautiful and so did Carey Mulligan in her golden Prada creation. As an Olsen fan, I'm generally impressed by anything either twin turns up in and last night was no different. The black dress from The Row that Mary-Kate Olsen was classically simple but still powerful.
