London - the most fashionable place to be
What an amazing week for London, not only is it fashion week but also the stars have descended on the cool Capital for the Bafta's and the Elle Style awards. It has been non-stop glamour!
Quite aptly the Brits flew the flag at the Bafta's for designers from their homeland with Kate Winslet opting for a sexy a black Stella McCartney rather than her usual Yves Saint Laurent, Trudi Styler looked fantastic in a structured Victoria Beckham black peplum dress, Vanessa Redgrave and daughter Joely Richardson both wearing elegant Catherine Walker creation and Burberry was a hit for Saiorse Ronan in a feathered creation.
Other actresses didn't veer too far away from Britain with them opting for French designers. Girl-of-the-moment, Best Actress winner Carey Mulligan wore a floral fitted gown by Vionnet, Kristin Scott Thomas wore elegant black Louis Vuitton and Audrey Tatou controversially wore a fluffy pink Lanvin creation (Chanel will be annoyed, she is the current face of the brand and also played Gabrielle Chanel in Coco Before Chanel).
So London Fashion week... today was the most anticipated day with Burberry hosting the first ever catwalk show to be broadcast live in 3D and boy did the glitterati descend for the event of the week.
Anna Wintour showed up in an elegant trench with a fantastic fur trim to keep her from the winter weather(or just to look fabulous), Kate Hudson was in a terrible bottle green sequin creative but wore mighty black platforms and Mary-Kate Olsen look understated but gorgeous in a fitted black coat and heels.
The show was a flurry of textured pieces in muted tones of green, brown and berry. Of course Burberry disappoint with the coats but animal-rights group won't be happy, fur, sheep-skin and leather will be the order of the day come Autumn/Winter 2010.
