Kerry Washington has always been one of my favourite red carpet goers. She always manages to look incredibly chic and fresh but recently she's been on the down low. Last night, though, she made a welcomed return to the red carpet at the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
For the occasion, she chose this floor length shimmering sequin Vivienne Westwood couture gown with a subtle drape and it works. The metallic works beautifully against her skin and he simple drop down earrings and pulled back hair finish the look off perfectly.
What I wouldn't think is good is for a new person to become a fashion designer. I'd think, well, why on earth would you want to do that? There are enough of us now. A girl said to me recently: 'I really want to be a fashion designer but I also like biology.' I said: 'Do biology.
For a while now we've known that Kate Moss will take part in the closing ceremony alongside other big British models like Naomi Campbell and Stella Tennant but even now, it's still unclear what, or who, they will down the runway. The latest issue of Vogue might reveal a clue.
To mark the event and in collaboration with the British Fashion Council, Vogue commissioned Nick Knight to shoot all of the models involved wearing British designers, leading people to speculate that the girls will wear the same brands for the closing event as they wear in the shoot.
In the issue Moss appears wearing a gold encrusted dress by Sarah Burton, as does Campbell, while Stella Tennant appears in Christopher Kane, Lily Cole and Donaldson in Erdem and Vivienne Westwood respectively, Georgia May Jagger in Victoria Beckham and Jourdan Dunn in Jonathan Saunders. I think it's safe to assume that they won't wear the same things but I'm sure the brand choice will be the same.
Juergen Teller is one busy man at the moment. He's just wrapped up shooting the fall campaigns for Céline and Marc Jacobs alongside working on his exhibitions at London's Photographer's Gallery and New York's Lehmann Maupin Gallery but it doesn't end there. Alongside these projects, the photographer has been working on a new book.
This book, titled The Keys to The House, is different to his others because the images offer an insight into his life in his country home in Suffolk, rather than focusing on his big fashion work. So apart from an appearance of Lily Cole and Vivienne Westwood, the majority of the images feature his closest friends and family along with landscape shots, nudity and wet dogs.
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.
The red carpet looks at last night's Oscars was mixed. Angelina Jolie looked incredible in an Atelier Versace black gown with thigh high slit, just about everyone wearing Elie Saab Couture looked incredible and Emma Stone stole the show in a red halter neck Giambattista Valli Couture gown.
Unsurprisingly, Jessica Chastain chose an Alexander McQueen gown and Rooney Mara chose Givenchy as we expected but unfortunately did not make the statement that we were all hoping for. The most interesting look of the night came from Gwyneth Paltrow who, like last year with that Calvin Klein dress, managed to pull off a difficult Tom Ford dress.
You can always count on Dame Vivienne Westwood for a good sound bite. Need evidence? Cast your mind back to this time last year when the designer notoriously told the guests at the Elle Style Awards that she had never heard of Emma Watson before presenting the young actress with an award.
Yesterday her attention turned to the negative effect that fast fashion is having on style. 'People have never looked so ugly as they do today. We just consume far too much...I'm talking about all this disposable crap,' she told reporters after her Red Label show. 'What I'm saying is buy less - choose well. Don't just suck up stuff so everyone looks like clones.' While most would agree that there is some truth here, her comments interestingly sparked controversy and were the subject of attention in the papers and breakfast shows this morning.
