Top 5: GQ Awards

Another awards, another bunch of celebs in pretty dresses, right? Let’s cut to the chase. Here are our top 5 favourite frocks and leading ladies.

Kylie looks super glam in Dolce & Gabbana

We bet LOADS of celebs wear this dress soon. Louise Redknapp looks electric in Stella McCartney

Victoria Pendleton also rocks Stella – love the fierce belt!

Azealia Banks looks super sophisticated in Missoni and Jimmy Choos

Lara Stone wears her signature Calvin Klein Collection look

Olympics: British supermodel walk-off rumours

If there was a fashion Olympics, we would like to see running in heels, hurdling Hermes Birkin bags and a walk-off. Oh, hang on a minute, it would appear the fashion gods have smiled on London 2012 and we might just get a supermodel walk-off after all!

According to rumours, Britain’s best supermodels are set to strut their stuff in the closing ceremony and we’re talking the likes of Lily Cole, Naomi Campbell, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Georgia May Jagger and Kate Moss – natch.

Of course if the rumours are true, we expect them to be wearing a selection of clothing from British designers such as Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen…and the Daily Mirror says it will all be sound tracked to David Bowie’s ‘Fashion’ and ‘Rebel Rebel’.

We also read somewhere that they will each be paid one pound to take part – but after reading so many stories we’re afraid we might have made that bit up. We’ll just have to wait and see!

Let’s create some more iconic fashion memories

Best dressed: Twilight girls at Comic-Con

I have kinda always wanted to go to Comic-Con – not because I’m a massive comic book geek but just for a slightly surreal experience. The main draw this year seems to have been the stars of Twilight (and not sadly for us in the Snap office, Emma Stone and her totally preppy Spiderman look!) Whatever, we like Kristen Stewart’s hi-tops and the rest of the Twilight stars’ sparkly details and luxe leather looks.

Top 5: Couture Week FROW

Of course Hollywood starlets and Brit IT girls flocked to couture week. We were particularly taken with classic tailoring (well it was France and a Chanel show) but also has a soft spot for demure daytime sequins and a high fashion double denim (almost) moment.

Alexa at Chanel. Textbook style = A*

Zoe Saldana proves sequins can be understated

We really should do a style crush on Sofia Coppola. She never gets it wrong!

OMG they practically match (mercifully in a non Britney and Justin double denim way) I love Diane Kruger’s dress and Joshua Jackson is looking good!

Clemence Posey shows us how to do glamour the French way (although I’m not a fan of the shoes!)

Seeing red: Blake Lively + Rihanna wear red suits

Have two of our favourite celebs sparked a micro-trend? Rihanna and Blake Lively have both been spotted wearing traffic-stopping red suits in the past week. While the coordinating colours thing is very this summer, the red suit has been an almost constant presence on the catwalk in recent years as well as on countless celebs. Is it a look you’ll try? Chris de Burgh is a fan.

Best dressed: Serpentine summer party

Where: Party at Kensington Gardens in London at the annual Serpentine Gallery party

Who: Celebs and models – arty like.

Style notes: Lots of Chanel, studs and metallics vs floaty boho dresses and vintage beading.

Here’s out heavenly seven:

Cara Delevingne wears Chanel (well!)

Laura Bailey works the metallic trend

Holly Valance looks super shiny in last season’s D&G

Stud-tastic – Jade Jagger

Amber le Bon goes boho

I love this look on Suki Waterhouse

My fav look: stylist Caroline Sieber’s vintage Chanel. J’adore.

StyleCrush: last week belonged to Emma Stone

We should rename the last week Emma Stone Week. She’s been EVERYWHERE with the Amazing Spiderman premieres and on so many fashion magazine covers – and she hasn’t put a fashionable foot wrong. Bravo Emma- so many winning looks in a week.

Emma vamps it up in Gucci

Getting ready in Paris

I love this Elie Saab jumpsuit

She does preppy equally well!

The New Yorker is my fav Stone cover of the month

A secret West Ham fan? Maybe not.
