Ever since Angelina Jolie had that leg moment on the red carpet at the Oscars this year, we haven't been able to have a break from stars sporting thigh high slits on the red carpet. On the whole, it's one trend that I wouldn't mind seeing disappear but Anna Friel was the exception on Monday night.
To attend the London premiere of 'The Amazing Spider-Man', the actress sported a purple version of the back gown that we saw the S/S12 Temperley London show. The rich tone definitely works a lot better than the black style and Friel really manages to pull it off. The only thing I would change is the heavy cork sandals.
Blue Ivy Carter is a fan and so is the queen and with the Jubilee weekend around the corner, the timing couldn't be better to create a scarf range as a new brand category and that's exactly what Temperley London has done. Yesterday the brand confirmed the launch of a new line, Temperley Scarves.
The six-piece range launches alongside the cruise 2012 collection and features a range of colourways from capri tones and raspberry to neutral oyster and blush, but that's not all. To celebrate the Jubilee festivities and this summer's Olympics, the brand has also created a limited edition medal print scarf, which comes in white and black inspired the official Olympic insignias.
'I am really excited to launch a new collection dedicated to scarves,' AliceTemperley said in a statement. 'It has always been an important part of what we do but now we can really focus on prints and textiles which is my first love...With the opening of our first flagship store in the autumn, now is the right time to expand into new categories.'
Katy Perry's red carpet looks can be a hit and miss. You can never be quite sure what to expect. One day she's wearing a smurf dress and the next she's in an elegant Elie Saab Couture creation.
Yesterday was a good day though as she stepped out at the ASCAP Awards. She looks effortless and romantic in this ivory embroidered S/S12 Temperley London dress and her new purple locks work a lot better than the blue she was sporting at fashion week.
The decadent One Great George Street in London's Westminster was the perfect backdrop to Alice Temperley's fall collection for Temperley London. Titled 'Renaissance', the collection took inspiration from religious paintings and decorative patterns and all things decadent which, on the whole, translated well.
The show opened in an interesting way. The first look - a long and lean floral applique cream dress - encapsulated the designer's bohemian aesthetic but the addition of the fur hat made it instantly clear that the look would be updated for fall. As the show progressed skirts came in gold brocade and 100 percent silk and one sheepskin and leather coats appeared in a rich brown teamed with a matching skirt and boots courtesy of Charlotte Olympia. The combination of contrasting fabrics and a rich colour palette worked well and a carmel cross-back midnight blue evening dress that appeared towards the end will undoubtedly be seen on the backs of celebrities very soon. Unlike her past collections, though, this collection will divide critics and customers down the middle.
Want to find out about the inspiration behind the new Temperley London collection? Look no further than the brand's relaunched website. Alice Temperley, who cites her inspiration this season as the Circus, has collaborated with Milk Studio's Emmy nominated film division, LEGS, to create a travelling installation.
Translation: Keeping the collection's circus theme, the installation features a series of short films with an old film feel, whereby professional acrobats and circus performers all showcase the brand's Spring/Summer 2010 collection.
Get your mouse ready. Brit designer Alice Temperley has just relaunched her website for Temperley London, and the ethereal label now has its own online boutique for your viewing pleasure.
Temperley's pre-fall and fall '09 collections are all over the site, and you can see previews of new projects, as well as behind-the-scenes footage from the brand. The designer herself gets candid with interviews, insider tips and styling ideas.
There is too much to say about Temperley London's resort offerings, simply because there were so many different running themes. We saw a hint of '80s in the harem trousers, a bit of ancient Greece here and there in the cream draped dresses and a miltary theme in the studded black jackets. Because of that, the collection lacked cohesion.
