Plastic Loving: Melissa Adds Jason Wu And Gareth Pugh

I have kind of gone a little crazy over the Jason Wu for Target collection that I totally forgot that the New York-based designer has also teamed up with Brazilian plastic shoe brand, Melissa. Both shoes are based on pre-existing Melissa bestsellers, my favourite the Ultragirl ballet flat, and the Lady Dragon peep-toe sling-back, with both coming with a Wu injection – the ballet flats with a Miss Wu owl logo bow and a sunburst design is adorned on the heels, which has come directly from Wu’s autumn/winter 2011 collection.

Both styles are available in black, merlot, and putty, with the flats also coming in a nude smoke design as well, and all feature lace printed lining, which looks cool on the wine coloured ‘merlot’.

The plastic candy-smelling brand is also continuing its collaboration with Vivienne Westwood with new colours for the iconic Lady Dragon heart adorned sling-backs; and new for spring is a graphic collection with British designer Gareth Pugh featuring his signature zig-zag print.

The Gareth Pugh collection comprises of two styles: a flat peep-toe Ultragirl adorned with his signature zig-zag print; and a gladiator sandal which comes in combinations of black, white and silver – both inspired by the designer’s spring/summer 2009 collection.

From the Melissa White collection – my favourite has to be these yellow printed Melissa Peace wedges – how cute are they!!

LA Loving: Vivienne Westwood Hosts Glamorous Store Opening

I don’t know why but I already thought that Vivienne Westwood had stores in America, apparently not, so this week the Dame herself opened her first LA flagship store and showroom with a glamorous, starstudded evening. Which of course means gorgeous celebrities draped in the amazing wares of Vivienne Westwood.

Above with Vivienne Westwood is the face of her Palladium jewellery line Christina Hendricks; wearing a Vivienne Westwood couture pleated corset in black silk cotton, teamed with skinny trouser and fierce red lippy. But this pic is all about Viv herself, this knockout white floor-skimming gown with intricate cut-out detailing is exquisite.

Easily my best dressed of the night had to be the ever-glamorous Dita Von Teese, after see her this week in CSI as a murderer, it was nice to see her strutting her stuff on the red carpet. I love this black taffeta gown that she is wearing from the spring/summer 2011 Vivienne Westwood Gold label collection, it looks amazing teamed with a striking black fascinator and fish net gloves, oh and course her signature red lippy.

Who: Zoe Saldana

Wearing: A silver draped Vivienne Westwood Gold Label dress, paired with Vivienne Westwood red floral heels

Verdict: Wow, this dress really does show off her model proportions to the max, I love the contrast of the silver dress with the red floral heels. This look from head-to-toe is sexy!!!

Who: Actress Anna Kendrick

Wearing: A gold print dress from the Vivienne Westwood Gold Label autumn/winter 2011 collection, teamed with black round toe Miu Miu heels

Verdict: The thing I love about Vivienne Westwood’s designs has to be the exquiste sihouettes, and this dress looks amazing on Anna. I am completely drawn to the draping detailing on the neckline and the gorgeous autumn print

Who: Malin Akerman

Wearing: A black printed dress from the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania pre-fall 2011 collection, teamed with silver peep-toe heels and an oversized black clutch

Verdict: This dress is sexy and so perfect for Malin. I really do like her presence on the red carpet, she has an attitude that I think a lot of actress are lacking, as always gorgeous and stunning.

Who: Kristin Davis

Wearing: A blue taffeta corset dress from the Vivienne Westwood Gold Label autumn/winter 2011 collection, paired with black patent peep-toe platforms and a black clutch

Verdict: Nice to see someone going for a spot of colour. I love this corseted dress on Kristin, it nips in at her waist and adds drama with the draping, great choice.

Who: Heidi Klum

Wearing: A black sequinned dress from the Vivienne Westwood Gold Label autumn/winter 2011 collection

Verdict: I love that it sparkles, it looks amazing on her, but it just doesn’t wow me like I think it should.

Sadly, to have a best dressed there has to be a worst dressed of the night, and that for me has to be Mischa Barton in this silver dress from the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania pre-fall 2011 collection. Out of all the celebs and dresses that were on offer, this was by far the worst, I just feel that everything from the colour to the draping, to her hair and the ribbon belt, nothing I am afraid works for me.

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.

83rd Oscars: Anne Hathaway Look 4 – Vivienne Westwood

For her third outfit of the show, fourth of the night Rachel Zoe opted for a black and silver embroidered lace corseted Vivienne Westwood Couture gown for the lovely Anne.

I do like this gown, it has the drama needed for the occasion. But I have to admit it isn’t my favourite look of hers though.

LFW Party: Olivia Palermo Wears Giambattista Valli

Who: New York socialite Olivia Palermo

Where: At Vivienne Westwood’s party during London Fashion Week

Wearing: A black and white print Giambattista Valli dress from the resort 2011 collection paired with heels from the spring/summer 2011 collection

Verdict: I have seen a number of dresses from the Giambattista Valli resort collection hitting the red carpet, but I think this is one of my favourite. I think a lot of it is to do with Olivia wearing it to be honest, as she looks completely gorgeous in this dress. I have been hoping to bump into Olivia while she is in town, but sadly not as yet.

In Pictures: Striking Window Displays of London

Flower power @ Stella

There is nothing better than rounding off a night out with friends than checking out the gorgeous window displays on the way back to the tube. Well on Thursday night I did just that with my friend Gen.

First stop had to be Stella McCartney, those five ladies are completely striking with their flower power heads. I admit picture quality isn’t amazing, I only had my Blackberry with me, and it wasn’t helped by the amount of traffic – it seriously never lets up in this town!

Miu Miu goes for the heart!

So whereas Stella takes your head, Miu Miu goes straight for the heart with this adorable love heart display. Is it just me or do they look like a giant pair of earrings that Pat Butcher would wear?

Measurements please...Moschino style

From the heart to your leg measurement, Moschino gives us a taste of their exquisite tailoring with their super-sized tape measurer. I have to admit I thought it was a big sellotape dispenser but it has measurements on the tape.

Vintage TV's at the Men's Vivienne Westwood

So done with all that shopping, there is nothing better than settling outside the men’s Vivienne Westwood store and catching up on a bit of TV. I absolutely adore all these retro TVs – very cool, like the Grand Dame herself.

Liberty London is just a LOVE machine

I finish my tour of London’s windows with the amazing LOVE magazine display at Liberty London. The window stats that ‘This is Hardcore’ and it most certainly is. I love the fact that they’ve pasted the LOVE posters directly onto the outside of the windows and pavement – it really looks like it is coming at you.

It is a great contrast to the colourful displays celebrating London Fashion Week which starts this Friday. Featuring Peter Pilotto and Christopher Kane (both pictured below), as well as Jonathan Saunders, and Michael Van Der Ham. Check out Liberty’s Facebook page for more pictures *which are defiantly better than mine*.

LFW's bright hot young things
