Maison Martin Margiela For H&M Party: SJP, Mena Suvari and Selma Blair

Last night in New York, H&M celebrated its latest designer collaboration with avant garde label, Maison Martin Margiela, and they brought out some of the brand’s celebrity fans to model the collection on the red carpet.

This party looked incredible, not only was the guest list pretty special with everyone from Sarah Jessica Parker to Kanye West, Julianne Moore, and Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford in attendance, but the venue, a nine-floor derelict, historical building in New York’s financial district looked to-die-for and the perfect setting for a very avant-garde party complete with art installations, dance performances and all housed around a glass-roofed atrium – oh how I wish I had been there!!!

As much as I loved Sarah Jessica Parker’s layered look, that oversized jacket is divine, my two best dressed of the night had to be Mena Suvari and Selma Blair. Both of course were wearing head-to-toe Maison Martin Margiela for H&M, and both looks came to under £300 – which for a red carpet event is amazing.

Probably the most controversial of looks was Mena Suvari, this body with an integrated bra is going to be a little like Marmite for some, you will either love it or hate it, and I absolutely love that Mena took it on last night. But what I love most about this look has to be that candy clutch – and at £34.99 this is so going to be mine!!!

Mena’s look comes to a grand total of £274.96 – don’t believe me? Well, here is a break down: body with integrated bra – £29.99; candy clutch, £34.99; invisible wedge pumps, £149.99; and hitched up skirt £59.99.

Wearing one of my favourite looks from the collection, Selma Blair looked incredible wearing the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M horizontally worn dress. I love her tea-pot pose in this dress – the perfectly way to show off the draping, and I adore her invisible wedge pumps – this is one seriously hot look which is finished off nicely with her intricate plaited up-do.

Gets Selma’s look on November 15, when the collection launches for just £249.98 – her horizontally worn dress is £99.99 and her black invisible wedge pumps are £149.99. Hot, Hot, Hot!!!

So who was your best dressed at the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M bash? Want to see more piccies of the red carpet – then head on over to my Facebook page.

Not A Rumour: Maison Martin Margiela For H&M Hits Stores In November

Yesterday, Twitter went crazy for the rumours that French avant-garde fashion house Maison Martin Margiela was going to be the latest in the long line of luxury label’s to team up with high street fashion chain H&M. Well this morning after a lot of speculation on whether an avant-garde house would do budget prices H&M sent out confirmation in a rather random CV format stating that the one-off collection for autumn/winter 2012 will hit 230 stores and of course H&M’s slightly frustrating website from November 15.

Other than the date, November 15 if you didn’t catch in my previous sentence, and the fact that the collection will consist of garments for men and women, as well as accessories, H&M didn’t give too much more away, other than this video of one of the designs being sketch, and to be honest this long darted sweater dress is enough to get me excited.

I reckon you can speculate that this collection will feature a lot of muted colours I am thinking white, white and a bit more white, with a touch of black, grey and nude shades, I am also thinking that shape and volume will play a part.

I have to be honest I am quite looking forward to seeing the final results. Are you as excited about this collaboration as me?
