AW12 Campaign: Chloe Sevigny Returns For Miu Miu

Miu Miu have taken a trip back in time and recruited a former face actress and style icon Chloe Sevigny to front their autumn/winter 2012 collection and it seems they’ve taken inspiration from British pop star David Bowie from the ’70s.

Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, I like this campaign, the quirky pose, the OTT make-up, the very bright and funky printed trousers, and most of all her sipping tea, very Lady Gaga!!!

We should have known that Chloe was planning to reprise her roll for Miu Miu after she wore the brand to the Met Gala, I can only think that a lucrative contract was the reason behind her wearing this barely there ’60s-inspired black mirrored geometric patchwork mini-dress, granted it makes her standout and suits her out-there personality, but I just didn’t feel this look.

But with Chloe returning to the Miu Miu fold it made me nostalgic for previous celebrity faces and who else I would love to see come back, and top of my list had to be Katie Holmes do you remember her fiery campaign in 2009 also shot by Mert & Marcus, now that would be a great way to come out on top from a divorce!!!

What do you think of Chloe’s Miu Miu ad? And, would you want to see Katie Holmes back as a Miu Miu face?

Style Crush: Chloe Sevigny Looking Sharp In BLK DNM

Who: Chloë Sevigny

Where: At the New Museum’s 35th Anniversary Spring Gala in New York City earlier this month

Wearing: An all-white tailored look from BLK DNM, featuring the label’s Blazer 1, a single-button blazer with sharp shoulders, and the Tux Pant 6, which has a slouchy silhouette to them. Finishing off her look is an Olympia Le-Tan ‘Moby Dick’ book clutch and grey heels.

Verdict: I am a big fan of Chloë Sevigny’s quirky style, whether it is a puff-hem gown worn to the Met Gala or a slick Yves Saint Laurent black jumpsuit to the Metropolitan Opera Gala premiere, I love that you can never predict what she will wear, except maybe that it will be bold and directional.

I am loving this sharp tailored look on her, not only is the tailoring the right mix of masculine in the cut, it also has a feminine touch with the all-white colouring, teamed with a kick-arse clutch and a slash of coral lipstick – for me this is another daring style choice that totally worked.

I also love the fact that she resisted the opportunity to team her all-white look with a flash of colour in her accessories, the neutral book clutch and the grey block heels seemed to work perfectly, which normally I wouldn’t say but because it is Chloë I think a pop of pink for instant wouldn’t have made as much of an impact.

What do you think – are you loving Chloë’s sharp suit?

Met Gala: Fashion Event Of The Year

I chose the most inappropriate time to get ill last week with the biggest event in the fashion calendar took place – the 2010 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, dubbed the ‘Oscars of Fashion’. The guest list was amazing as always, there was Sienna Miller’s first outing with Jude Law since they reunited, Anna Wintour dancing with Diddy, it was like a who’s who of the fashion world from Hollywood stars to models. There were amazing frocks, some fashion disasters and then there was my style icon Diane Kruger looking amazing as always. This year’s event, American Woman: Fashioning A National Identity, was sponsored by Gap and they teamed up with emerging designers Alexander Wang, Sophie Theallet and Rodarte – and got them to dress some of the hottest celebs including Jessica Alba, Kirsten Dunst and Zoe Kravitz.

Fairytale dress goes to Anne Hathaway in Valentino (above).

Style Icon goes to Diane Kruger who looked slick in a white long-sleeve body-hugging Calvin Klein Collection frock.

Best Of The Young Hollywood Starlets has to be Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively in an amazing strapless Marchesa a/w10 frock with peacock draped chiffon teamed with Christian Louboutin heels. The Brits were out in force, Carey Mulligan went for an understated (very boring – not glamourous enough for me) Miu Miu frock, Sienna looking all loved up chose a Pucci and then there was Alexa Chung who decided to play the cool card as always in a tux by Philip Lim.

But for me Best Brit had to be Emma Watson looking gorgeous in a custom-made one-shoulder white Burberry frock (as the face of the brand she kind of should look amazing!).

Shimmering Goddess has to be Nicole Richie in this amazing silver Marc Jacobs, this frock stands out for all the right reasons and I love how she has teamed it with a black sash around the waist and an oversized black clutch – and her hair is fierce – love!!

There were lots of other delights Chloe Sevigny in a teal Proenza Schouler, Rachel Weisz in a beautiful ruffled pink Oscar de la Renta, Eva Mendes wore a Dolce & Gabbana flowery number, Jennifer Lopez went for the classic princess look in a couture gown by Zuhair Murad and Emma Roberts cute in a custom black organza Marni with a stone-embellished belt.

There were some frocks that I wasn’t keen on and the one in particular has to be singer’s Katy Perry in a glowing CuteCircuit gown which had over 3000 LEDs with silk chiffon creating a rainbow of colours. I am sure she did get some best dressed awards for this innovative dress but for me it just seems a little tacky.


YSL Goes To The Opera

Who: Camilla Belle

Where: Metropolitan Opera Gala Premiere of Armida at the Metropolitan Opera house in New York

Wearing: At an YSL sponsored event not really a surprise Camilla is in a strapless Yves Saint Laurent tiered nude dress

Verdict: I love this floor-skimming dress, tiered ruffles and the detailing on the bust – pure elegance

Who: Chloe Sevigny

Wearing: A slick Yves Saint Laurent black jumpsuit teamed with a statement heart necklace and black gloves

Verdict: I love that this outfit is simple as well as daring, I’m sure some people will hate it – but for me it shows her quirky personality. The addition of the black gloves and peep-toe heels really works for me. Also her fierce attitude in this picture is great
