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

All pics from Vogue.com (go and check out the rest!)

Vogue Paris frock off

Vogue Paris has a trio of models on its September issue front cover and they’re all wearing the same Dolce & Gabbana dress.

It’s a bold move pitching Kate Moss, Lara Stone and Daria Werbowy against each other, all of whom are also wearing strong red lipstick. The big question is, who is your favourite and who do you think will sell the most copies?

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.

Handbags to picnic with

Picnic hampers as handbags has to be one of SS12’s tastiest micro-trends. While Dolce & Gabbana’s golden baskets were catwalk favourites and cost a lot (a lifetime’s worth of gourmet sarnies) the trend translates really well for the high street with cute wicker offerings everywhere. We’ll be plumping for a big boxy number for maximum snackability…or a tiny novelty wicker bag in the shape of something quirky for fun summer nights.

Burberry SS12

Cute ASOS Straw Satchel With Sunflowers £35

OMG I love this! Kate Spade linden wicker basket £495

Inspiration?!

Picnic Dolce & Gabbana style

My favourite from the collection: metalllic woven coated raffia shoulder bag £1,285 from Net-a-Porter

Handy straw basket bag from Topshop with a shot of neon for maximum beachiness £30

The designer version: Rebecca Minkoff’s fairy tale clutch $195

Cheap and chic fun at Primark

Fiiierce mesh shoes

I have been a little obsessed with Gareth Pugh of late; his ultra fierce cage get-ups and that amazing anti-tutu. Anything too cage-like might attract the wrong kind of attention in the office but a mesh shoe can toughen up any business outfit or standard skinny jeans look and there are some incredible designer and high street offerings.

Dolce & Gabbana peep-toe mesh boots £425

SO useful for summer! M&S Autograph open toe eslasticated band sandals £49.50

Bionda Castana Melody mesh pumps £212 from The Outnet

GRAFFITI Sporty Toecap Points £55 from Topshop. They even tick the pastel and sporty trend boxes. Win!

Jimmy Choo 'Walsh' perforated textured-leather ballet flats £295

Faster by Mark Fast ALDO Rise Cregger £125

Dolce Gabbana vs Primark (again!)

The say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Well, let’s hope Dolce & Gabbana are really flattered as Primark has once again imitated (rather closely if you ask us) one of the Italian fashion house’s most recognisable SS12 designs – the aubergine-print cropped top, as recently worn by Pixie Lott.

Primark has been VERY inspired by the catwalk of late and we have spotted a copy of the Dolce & Gabbana chilli pepper dress, Henry Holland-esque supersized leopard print neon tee and Prada’s Cadillac print tops and skirts at the budget retailer. Good news for penny pinching shoppers but it makes us wonder if or when fashion houses will get a little bit miffed.

A little dolce vita for just £6

Pixie Lott + Dolce & Gabbana = vegetable love

I’m just going to put it out there. I don’t really understand Pixie Lott’s natural style. Sure there’s generally a bit of retro styling going on but then the popstrel starlet flits from almost too grown-up suits and high end fashion to next-to-nothing metallic leotards and bright make-up.

I love this Dolce & Gabbana aubergine outfit and Pixie looks cute but the brand is so sassy and Italian I’d love to see this outfit less ‘put together’ and on someone older and curvier – a powerful woman who is less cute. If I were Pixie, I would have paired the Dolce cropped top with a pair of 1950s style cropped jeans and cork wedges…and had a little more retro fun.

Dolce & Gabbana’s model dinner party

Models and IT girls don’t do food right? WRONG! They certainly do when it’s served by fashion royalty Dolce & Gabbana. A collection of models and singers referred to as ‘London IT girls’ modelled Dolce & Gabbana’s SS12 foodie-inspired collection for Harper’s Bazaar magazine US. I am in love with the chilli dress and pasta earrings.

Cara Delevingne and Pixie Geldof - remind anyone of a Disney film?

MFW: Dolce & Gabbana vs Versus

Both are behemoths of the Italian fashion and feature plenty of gold and winter florals – but in very different ways this MFW.

At Dolce & Gabbana every surface was encrusted with gold embroidery or beading decorating 19th century shapes – corsets, voluminous shorts and capes – yes they’re back! We spotted more pointy shoes, which are now definitely worth investing in.

Even socks were covered in ribbons and earrings replaces with massive bejewelled chandeliers, while floral tapestry-style dresses added to the Sicilian style. And of course there was velvet and gold more velvet and gold.

Over at Versus there was also gold but Christopher Kane style, which for AW12 is edgy and super sexy, with laces, slashes and rivets to flash some flesh. After floral and sporty looks of SS12, the winter Versus woman means business with slicked-back hair and lots of side lacing (a Versace thing). I personally lovre the leather and burgundy combos.
