Met Gala 2012: Topshop Dresses Jamie and Dree

TopshopJaime Met Gala 2012: Topshop Dresses Jamie and Dree %tag

Not content with being outdone by H&M who have been working the celebrity red carpet circuit of late, Topshop dressed two big stars for the Met Gala 2012 in New York last night. First up is actress Jamie King, who was created a custom-made dress using the Unique autumn/winter 2012 devore silk fabric with cross motifs, and the Topshop in-house design team decided that her dress needed to be a bold red colour, and I am glad they did as the colour really worked.

This dress however is gorgeous from the front, but it is exquisite when you see the open-back teamed with that gorgeous Bulgari necklace that draped down her back, one of the best jewels of the night for me. Oh and that train is just divine, finishes off the dress perfectly. TopshopJaime1 Met Gala 2012: Topshop Dresses Jamie and Dree %tag

The high street brand also modified one of the dresses from the Topshop Unique autumn/winter 2012 catwalk show for model Dree Hemingway. The gold sequinned dress was apparently going to be floor-length, but the team decided to make it knee-length and I am so glad they did as I think it works better falling just below her knee. I also love the sheer panelling to the bust, gives it a sexy vibe that works with her pop of red lippy.

So which Topshop dress gets your vote – Jamie or Dree?

I am wondering if there is a formalwear collection in the works for Topshop? If there was would you buy?

Coachella Festival: Mulberry Hosts A-List Barbecue

MulberryCoachella1 Coachella Festival: Mulberry Hosts A List Barbecue  %tag

If like me you’ve been slightly avoiding some tweeters this weekend so not to see how much fun they are having at the Coachella Festival then I warn you look away now, as pictures from Mulberry’s barbecue and pool party hit my inbox over night and it looked amazing.

Yesterday the brand’s Creative Director Emma Hill and her giant monsters took over the Gene Autry House pool at The Parker hotel, in Palm Springs, and hosted a little R&R for some of its a-list pals and referenced the brand’s autumn/winter 2012 collection of mysterious monsters to create the perfect setting of sunbeds featuring the Mulberry monster fur print towels, monster cushions, and even giant monster lilos to relax in the pool.

Basically, the Mulberry monster invaded Coachella and served up BBQ kebabs and  lemonade popsicles to the likes of Emma Watson, Lily Collins and Kate Bosworth, and if that wasn’t enough they even got to wear prieces from the brand’s spring/summer and autumn/winter 2012 collections – think lots of animal prints, studs, and tassels.

Who: Emma Watson

Wearing: A Mulberry fuzzy tiger playsuit from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, teamed with a  black cardigan, belt, floppy hat, a Mulberry Mini Lily with Tassels in Oak from also from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, and gladiator-style flats

Verdict: This is a cute and pool party appropriate look from Emma and my best dressed Mulberry look, see Dree Hemingway at the bottom of the post in Dolce & Gabbana for my best overall look.

I am loving this playful look on her, sometimes I find Emma can be a little too serious in her style, which don’t get me wrong is generally impeccable, but I am loving that she is having a little fun with the animal print. I also love how she made the look her own with the addition of the belt, and that 70′s style hat. Also the tan version of the Mini Lily has so been added to my wish list – love that little beauty.

Who: Kate Bosworth

Wearing: A Mulberry fuzzy tiger scoop neck tee in acorn, teamed with studded black shorts, Mulberry black studded sneakers, and finishing off her look is a Mulberry Mini Lily with Tassels in Ink Blue, all from the autumn/winter 2012 collection

Verdict: Can Kate be any more cooler if she tried, I am loving her sexy casual vibe in these tiny studded shorts, which works perfectly with the animal print tee and those hot Mulberry sneakers. I also need to find out where her bright fish earrings are from as I am loving them!!!

Who: Actress of the moment Lily Collins

Wearing: A pale blue stripy straws Neely Mulberry dress, teamed with summer khaki stitched bow ballerina flats, both from the spring/summer 2012 collection, and completing her look is the ink blue Mulberry Lily with Tassels from the autumn/winter 2012 collection

Verdict: This was nearly my best dressed, I love the printed dress, the bag and her fresh face, but I am just not as sold on her shoes. Don’t get me wrong they work perfectly with the look, I am just not loving them, I much prefer the cross strap flats that she is wearing below with Kate.

Who: Dree Hemingway

Wearing: A Dolce & Gabbana chilli pepper-print cotton bustier and skirt from the spring/summer 2012 collection, teamed with very high platform heels

Verdict: Out of all the models who attended the party, which also included Arizona Muse, Tali Lennox, and Cara Delveigne, Dree really captured my attention in this very summery Dolce & Gabbana catwalk look. I am loving that she teamed it with hot red lips – LOVE!!!

So who gets your best dressed vote?

Video Loving: Infomercial Brought To You By Henry Holland

I love fashion films, I love the quirky style and attitude of Henry Holland, add them together with Dree Hemingway and Pixie Geldof and you have an amazing combination.

This QVC-style shopping channel film, for the House of Holland’s autumn/winter 2011 collection, is the label’s debut fashion film. Made in association with BritishVogue Art Director Jaime Perlman’s fashion film platform Test, it really does embody the spirit of the label perfectly.

Presented by “Cock and Hen” aka Henry and Pixie, the lovely Dree can be seen modeling and presenting the gorgeous wares of the collection, from a 100% crochet dress, to an amazing bingo calling playsuit.

It is so funny, I absolutely love it. Seriously, you have to watch this just for Henry’s expressions!!!

Video Loving: Shopping Fever by Karl Lagerfeld

I loved Karl Lagerfeld’s Remember Now his cinematic debut, and he has followed it up with this cute short with his favourite three models Abbey Lee Kershaw, Dree Hemingway and Baptiste Giabiconi. Shopping Fever is a silent short featuring his male muse Baptise as the valet, and the girls decked out in Chanel AW10 collection. Also did I forget to mention the countless Chanel bags sprawled around the hotel room – heaven!
