Kim Kar-diaries – Givenchy, YES PLEASE!

Never mind her holding hands with Kanye West, who cares? It’s all about Kim Kardashian in this Givenchy little black dress!

At first, I wasn’t that taken with Givenchy’s spring summer 2012 collection. Don’t get me wrong, it was amazing, but just not stand out. However it’s proven to be a grower and not a show-er in my books, so I stand corrected.

On the right woman, this peplum LBD is a knockout, just so happens my FAV girlfriend – we’re friends you know – wore it the way God, and Riccardo Tisci, intended… WITH CURVES!

Dont’cha love it?

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Watch: Stella McCartney looks good on ya!

It’s been a while since I’ve spoken about Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, that’s not to say she hasn’t looked as gorgeous as ever though. Like today for instance. Her is the SUPER model looking, well, SUPER in a long sleeved Stella McCartney frock from the designer’s Spring Summer 2012 collection.

And look ladies, she’s done a Gok and waist belted it!

Wise move Rosie. I’ve ummed and ahhhed about Stella’s SS12 offering over and over again and still haven’t come to a conclusion (I know I know, she’s waiting for my approval!), but here Rosie has made me love it, or this dress, for sure. For me, Rosie has transformed it into something that looks like a dull slip to an outfit worth talking about!

Love it!

Beyonce shows off her Stella McCartney tropicals!

Having her baby is seemingly old news now, once again it’s all about Beyonce’s wardrobe. The way it should be. No offence baby Ivy (let’s face it, you’ll be inheriting it all anyway!). And for her next trick… Stella McCartney’s tropical print trousers!

Stella’s cruise collection has done well hasn’t it? The separates have cropped up on many celebrities and fashion pages, and I have to say I’m a massive fan – if only she did menswear!

Beyonce looks AMAZE in them here, in New York yesterday, don’t you think?? Lovely on-trend pop of yellow too Bey – style masterclass non?

Ones to watch: Sssssshoes for the season!

Wasn’t it Carrie Bradshaw who once said: ‘Water water everywhere, not a drop to drink’ whilst walking round a shoe shop with a heavily pregnant Miranda? I think it was, yes!

And she’d DEFINITELY say the same if she was asked to comment on the shoes we saw stomp down the catwalks for Spring Summer 2012! I was completely wowed by the footwear that the designers showcased for this season. In fact the shoes are sometimes the best bit from the collections.

If you’re feeling flush, then here are a few I’d suggest you invest in! You’d have them forever!!!

Prada throws up over Katy Perry for Paris Fashoin Week – in an amazing way!

Katy Perry has been a busy woman, hasn’t she? Popping from one fashion show to the next, wondering around Paris dressed up to the nines, and looking amazing at all times… look at her here, at the Miu Miu show, in head-to-toe Prada. She looks INSANE – apart from that VILE blue hair!!!!

We all had a gasp at Prada’s spring summer 2012 50s/Grease inspired collection, with the flame shoes, studded bags and car print/fireball coats and dresses, and Katy took it upon herself to show off the best of the collection whilst sitting FROW at Miuccia Prada’s younger brand, Miu Miu’s autumn winter 2012 show.

This is one of her best looks from fashion week, it’s just that blue hair is ruining it for me, every time! And those roots. Blerghhh.

Katy, love, this is NOT a way to win back Russel or attract another man. You may be feeling blue, but we don’t all need to see it. CHANGE IT PLEASE!

Bryan Boy, I’m jealous…

Hereee he is, the original fashionista blogger, Bryan Boy in Paris for Fashion week, donning one of my FAVOURITE tops from Givenchy’s spring summer 2012 collections… the circular hem birds of paradise sweater. Here he teams it with navy trousers, socks and the black Givenchy sandals (usually an absolute fashion no no, but he works it well somehow!).

He’s also sporting an of-the-moment Jil Sander beanie cum fascinator and the ultimate chic accessory, a fag – by which I mean a cigarette of course!

Backstage at Giles Deacon Spring Summer 2012 – GIVE ME A SWAN!

I know it’s old in fashion time, but Giles Deacon’s spring summer 2012 collection was, for me, one of the most eye-wateringly (I know that’s not a word, but you know what I mean) amazing collection of jaw-dropping clothes I’ve seen. He does something with shape, print and texture that is very rarely seen by any designer – manages to combine all three AND get it right every time. His swan print theme, in particular the beak, remained a constant theme for not only floaty dresses, but separates too.

You get drama with Giles. Real drama. And magic. So much magic. I have never been to one of his shows, but I imagine from whatever row you are lucky to get a seat in, you would definitely try your best not to blink in case of missing a nano-second of his fashion gold.

I dare say this collection was his best to date, but that would be a mistake. I should say that he gets better and better with every new season but that would be patronizing and a bit of a bleghhh fashion thing to say. So I’ll just say WOW.

Enjoy these behind the scenes pics from his show…

Katy Perry wears blue Viktor & Rolf AT Viktor & Rolf…

… which is probably an obvious given seeing as she might have been paid to turn up at their autumn winter 2012 show, therefore she must wear their designs. However, I really hope it’s because like lots of us, Katy loved loved loved Viktor & Rolf’s spring summer 2012 collection which was full of blue, black and peach whimsical cut out swirls and big, oversized stitching.

Katy Perry, I think, showed off this blue coat and dress combo from their SS12 collection so well, and as much as I really don’t like the blue hair, it looked all very nicely themed.

*Katy’s blue coat and dress combo on the catwalk…*

I will write more about their new autumn winter 2012 collection soon, but here are a few pictures from today’s show. Big furs, loose silky blouses and dresses and lots of night time glamour told stories of their moon inspiration (which sat at one end of the catwalk). It was dramatic, which is typically V&R, but for next season the Viktor & Rolf lady is less painted red face like this time last year, and more romantic surrealism.

I think you all know by now how much I love love love anything super glamorous. I’ve spoken about multiple Versace campaigns, more than one uber fabulous shot of Joan or Jackie Collins and several (thousand) pieces of clothing that would leave any woman feeling powerful and amazing. And now, thanks to one of my favourite high street retailers River Island, there’s even more glamour to talk about… in the shape of their Spring Summer 2012 campaign!

I’m sure these images do all the talking, but it’s still worth a mention that this new campaign was shot by fashion photographer Ellen Von Unwerth (responsible for some of the most mesmerizing black and white shots in fashion) and doesn’t it look like they’re having the best Miami holiday ever? Any minute DVer (Donatella Versace obvs!) is going to walk past that pool!!

And now for the REALLY exciting part… the lovely folks over at River Island are giving YOU, lovely reader, the chance to win £250 worth of vouchers to shop the new collection (get that black and white shirt dress, I urge you!). HOW AMAZING?

All you have to do is answer the following question in the comment section below (click on ‘What do YOU think??) and I’ll pick one person at random.
