Music Video Loving: Beyonce – Run The World (Girls)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBmMU_iwe6U&feature=player_embedded

Beyonce premiered her new song last week, Run The World (Girls), and as you would expect it is filled with fierce poses, dancing and an amazing selection of designer clobber. I counted eight looks, admittedly I may have missed a few as it does flash from one scene to the next quite quickly, but I spotted pieces from Lee McQueen’s last collection, Givenchy, Jean Paul Gaultier, Emilio Pucci, Brian Lichtenberg and Gareth Pugh.

One of the first looks (above) is a gorgeous Alexander McQueen red silk satin dress adorned with gold embroidery from the autumn/winter 2010 collection, teamed with McQueen thigh-high boots. Oh, and for added drama, Beyonce is standing tall next to a gorgeous lion.

Surrounded by her army Beyonce shows off her fab figure and incredible dance skills in these Norma Kamali fringe shorts with a black bustier, a Brian Lichtenberg patchwork fur vest from the autumn/winter 2011 collection and fringed Alexander Wang heels. This is a hot look!!

Amongst all the post-apocalyptic drama comes this gorgeous Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci dress from the spring/summer 2011 collection. The detailing in this dress looks stunning against the derilick scene.

But my favourite look has to be this stunning black Jean Paul Gaultier couture gown from the spring 2011 collection, its fabulous bold feathered shoulders and cut-out detailing to the bodice.

One of the most striking costume changes has to be this gold scale Gareth Pugh dress and heels. This is a very futuristic look and I love the dramatic shoulder and the flicky skirt, and how tiny is her waist!!

My least favourite look has to be this vibrant yellow Emilio Pucci gown with thigh-high splits on both sides and a plunging neckline. Makes perfect sense for her dance moves, but against all the other stunning pieces this one didn’t work as well for me. Out of the two Pucci dresses I prefer the racing green sequinned number below, with its cross-body slash.

For Beyonce’s second wear from Norma Kamali she looks amazing in her Aztec cut-out jumpsuit, which you can buy here for $575.

I am so glad that artists like Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Rihanna still make large production music videos. This video shot by Francis Lawrence really is spectacular, from the concept of Beyonce being a warrior chief and having her own army to the crazy dance scenes, this is a great video.

Cover Loving: Coco Rocha For Elle Canada

I make no secret that Coco Rocha is one of my favourite models, but come on when you see covers like this, surely is has to be everyone’s favourite model. I love this May 2011 ELLE Canada cover shot by Nelson Simoneau, from the amazing Jean Paul Gaultier dress that Coco is wearing to her flirty expression, and then add to that her flawless make-up – this is a gorgeous cover.

Plastic: Barbie Is Model Perfect For Melissa

I love it when brands do something creative, and I am an avid fan of Brazilian brand Melissa shoes magazine, Plastic. Each issue always has gorgeous editorial spreads, which make me swoon, last issue it was all about Dita Von Teese, and this time around Katy Perry graces the cover but I am afraid that Barbie up-staged her with this glamorous photoshoot.

Barbie looks a doll in her designer wear, teaming her gorgeous gowns with tiny plastic shoes from the Vivienne Westwood and Jean Paul Gaultier collaborations. I am not sure if they are just for the shoot, but seriously these would fit nicely alongside Christian Louboutin’s shoe packs, Barbie is a very lucky girl.

I have to stress that all the pages in the mag are just as gorgeous, especially Katy Perry’s shoot – check it out Issue 4 here.

Cover Loving: Victoria Beckham For Marie Claire USA

Pic: Marie Claire - November

November issues really are shaping up – this Victoria Beckham cover has blown me away. How amazing does Vickie B look in this cut-out bra from the Jean Paul Gaultier for La Perla collection – gorgeous and fierce.

I absolutely love the shoulder detailing of this bra.

What surprises me is Victoria isn’t doing her famous pout she looks really relaxed – I really can’t wait to pick up this mag to read the revealing interview.

PFW Front Row: Dita Von Teese Hits Paris Shows

Where: At the Jean Paul Gaultier Ready to Wear SS11 show during Paris Fashion Week

Wearing: A black dress with spike cape detailing from Jean Paul Gaultier’s Couture AW10 collection teamed with Christian Louboutin heels, black gloves and clutch

Verdict: I love this spiked cape, so JPG and so DVT, LOVE!!! I know that this fashion week Dita seems to be embracing her little black dresses – this one is certainly my favourite.


Where: At the Sonia Rykiel Ready to Wear SS11 show during Paris Fashion Week

Wearing: A two-tone black and nude Sonia Rykiel dress from the AW10 collection teamed a great pom-pom hat

Verdict: Not too many people could carry off this amazing pom-pom hat, but of course Dita is a class in her own and I love her style. This isn’t my favourite of the black dresses but I do like the coordinated nude sleeves *is it wrong that it kind of reminds me off an ice skating outfit? – which I love*.


Where: At the Lanvin Ready to Wear SS11 show during Paris Fashion Week at Halle Freyssinet

Wearing: Head-to-toe Lanvin *of course* and black *again*

Verdict: This is the most blah outfit of the three for me, it is an

So what are thinking of Dita’s front row fashion? I love that the red lippy came out for each outfit, that she supports each designer, but I think I would have loved something more than just black.
