When I found out that this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibition would feature Prada I was excited to see who Miuccia Prada would dress for the Met Gala and she really didn’t disappoint. In her party, to celebrate the Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations, was the gorgeous Diane Kruger, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Biel, Amber Valetta, Anna Wintour, Carey Mulligan, Eva Mendes, Kate Bosworth, Linda Evangelista, Mia Wasikowska, Grace Coddington, Milla Jovovich, and model Anne V.

Who: Katy Perry Where: At the Miu Miu autumn/winter 2012 catwalk show in Paris Wearing: Head-to-toe Prada in a giada raso coat, worn over a flames-motif printed pink chiffon pleated dress, and paired with the Saffiano lux Pyramide bag with studs and patent leather flame sandals Verdict: I love everything about Katy Perry’s look from the neck down, seriously her choice of quirky accessories is amazing – I am in love with that studded bag as well as the incredible flame heels.

Who: Actress Mia Wasikowska Where: At the New York premiere of Jane Eyre Where: A black a-line cocktail dress, with floral appliqués and sequin embellishments, from the Elie Saab Haute Couture spring/summer 2011 collection, teamed with black peep-toe heels Verdict: What a stunning dress, the texture of the floral appliques is completely exquiste, and Mia looks amazing in it. I love everything about this look, from the dress failing just-below-the-knee, to her having her hair up, to the gorgeous peep-toe heels. This outfit is simply chic.
Who: Mia Wasikowska Where: At the Vanity Fair Oscar party in West Hollywood Wearing: A black guipure lace Stella McCartney dress from the pre-fall 2011 collection, teamed with black peep-toe platforms Verdict: The detailing on this little black dress is exquisite, and I love the way the full-skirted silhouette kicks out. It is a quirky dress and Mia is perfect for it. Gets my vote for the best LBD of the night. [Pic: via Stella McCartney]
The climax of London Fashion Week last year was Burberry Prosum’s return to the city and this season was no different, at 4pm (well 20 mins late), London stopped still. Yep even us folk at work!!
