Whether its because of her alter ego "Carrie Bradshaw" or her great sense of style, we feel that Sarah Jessica Parker has had some amazing outfits (and not so amazing).
But tonight she gains brownie points for an amazing outfit, the 'Sex And The City' actress was caught last night wearing a little black Jumpsuit, not dress, jumpsuit. Parker attended an amfAR inspiration gala, to support her agent of 26 years, Kevin Huvane. She was joined alongside Chelsea Handler, Kate Hudson, Katy Perry, Octavia Spencer and Rumer Willis. However the trendsetter wasn't aware of the dress code which was 'Black Tie and Sportswear'. fortunately for Parker, a fairy-god mother had placed something at the back of her wardrobe. SJP revealed the following "I styled myself...This is an old Chanel jumpsuit, its like 15 years old, that I've had in my closet." Not a lot of women are brave enough to pull off a certain look, but fashionista SJP wore that outfit exceedingly well. A 15 year old Chanel jumpsuit accessorized with a leather jacket, at triangular statement necklace and Manolo Blahnik shoes. The night ended perfectly for Sarah when she handed Huvane with a 'Piaget's Award Of Inspiration' due to his charitable actions to help those who suffer with AIDS.

As her first two perfumes "Rebelle" and "Reb'l Fleur" were a success, so it was expected of Rihanna to launch her third perfume, appropriately named "Nude". The design seems to go with the name as its displayed as a clear bottle drizzled with a creamy-peachy colour. Kinda similar to her previous perfumes Design. The Barbados star tweeted the photographic ad earlier on today. The image showed Rihanna wearing a creamy coloured bra whilst shielding herself with a sheer nude blanket, also showing off her blonde tresses. I like her classy style!
Paris was lucky enough to view a sexy catwalk collection by Alexander McQueen. The clothing theme appeared to be focused on bees, judging by the repetition of hexagon holes, masked veils and honey-inspired colours. But what makes it sexy, you ask? Try Looking at the curvy dresses adding emphasis to the models body or the cutaway peplum blouses which displays the right amount of cleavage. I guess what McQueen is trying to say is that the trend forecast for spring next year are peplums, corsets, cutaways, belts and sheer material. They could also be starting a trend on veils, I mean we wear them at weddings and funerals, why shouldn't it be considered a new trend? It also appears that honey colours like golds, browns and yellows are set for spring 2013 with a bit of black, red , green and white placed here or there.To conclude I wasn't a huge fan of McQueen's past collections but the flirty attire, floral arrangements and ballgowns have swept me off my feet. I'm definitely BEE-hind this one!

Yesterday, I went to the London College Of Fashion! See, I'm a CAPS student which means I'm a part of their enrolling scheme. I loved every second of every seminar, which made me excited about attending their institution. Anyway, when the seminars were over, I left and found an exhibition, but not just any exhibition, an eye wear exhibition!! These eye wear pieces are extraordinary to the core, the students who created them are very, very talented and open-minded when it comes to creativity. I mean, there's even a pair of eye wear influenced under Lego blocks! Each pair has a story behind them both visual and intellectual, but they all served their purpose, when it comes to fashion and art.Some are wearable and some are made for display only. I applaud them (and when I say 'them', I mean the students) and commend their expertise. :)
What makes these jumpers perfect, is that they make fashion seem less like work and more like fun.This is portrayed through the peculiar patterns, prints and images. They'll keep you warm this autumn and will achieve that eccentric, playful style. I might suggest some dark warm colours, like browns, greys, greens and blues. You could also pair them with skinny jeans or wear a dress underneath. The pattern is up to you!
New Look £19.99

Chanel has spent many years (and money) making a name for themselves and I think it's safe to say they've done themselves and coco herself proud. But now with the help of Karl Lagerfield & Carine Roitfiels, they have produced a visual exhibition of thier pieces appropriately named The Little Black Jacket : Chanel's Classic Revisited, which is modelled by the famous (and infamous). These fashion photos have been displayed from New York to Hong Kong and are going to be published here in London on October 12. The exhibition will be held at the Saatchi Gallery and will end on October 28. I know tight schedule, so If I were you, I get down there the second the door opens.

One of the upcoming trends for Autumn/Winter 2012 is military and I am a huge fan of this trend. Not only does this trend link to winter what with the leather boots and trench coats. The colours and the materials are my comfort zones when it comes to dressing up. This trend is both practical and fashionable, mostly because the attire is slimming and keeps you warm. Victoria Beckham catches this military imagery and portrays it in her Fall 2012 collection vividly. The dark autumn colours of browns, beige's reds and indigo's are shown in trench coats, over-sized bags and cut out dresses, with vertical black strips. Models wore the dresses with the black leather boots and their hair simply styled as straight and sleek, for an added touch sophistication. I have a feeling that this collection will influence the high street stores when it comes to design and material and that this trend will be popular this season.
What girl doesn't dream of having the perfect wedding? As you all know Anne Hathaway is getting married to the tasteful Adam Shulman, but when it comes to Hathaway her wedding tradition is "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Valentino!"
Yes, the 29 year old has kindly asked her good friend Valentino to come out of retirement and do her one small favor; To make her wedding dress! There's only one thing I can say... Good Thinking! But of the wedding dress has to be designer! The fashion marvel himself appeared honored and proud as he said the following when interviewed by E! "She's like my daughter...She's sensational, she's fantastic". Judging from that quote it sounds like we're going to see one hell of a wedding dress!
This runway show was taken place in Regent Street, London on Monday 17th September. The dominant attire displayed included trench coats, wedges, corsets and capes. The dominant colour was white, this visual could link to how an artist would start using a blank canvas and slowly the artist would start by using subtlety like cream colours and pastel colours. Then bring in strong colours, like golds and different hues of blues, greens, pinks and purples.Then finally mixing different hues to create some sort of tie-dye affect. It was said that this collection was inspired by Britain in the 1940's what with the capes, shorts and pencil skirts. For Burberry, their trend for spring 2013 was a simple rule of three ; The lace, The leather and The satin.
It's September and that can only mean one thing...Back To School! Yes the academic year is among us and keeping in trend is hard enough, with the British weather playing tricks on us. Is it still summer or is autumn fast approaching? But never fear as the following students take control with these fashionable combinations.
Here, we have a student who's attire is influenced by the Gothic trend. Which of course is the current trend for Autumn/Winter 2012. The Mickey Mouse design was (During the summer/Spring 2012) and still is a popular trend. She does a good job of maintaining consistency of the colour black, which is a very slimming colour and explains why the "LBD" (Little Black Dress) is a hit. The snake- print leather belt is a reminder of how much we love animal prints. Her shoes add variety when it comes to colour as the creamy-brown sneakers gives her outfit a boyish charm. However adding simplistic jewellery like the silver bracelet, ring and necklace adds a feminine touch.
This student has got the leather trend hooked! Again black is the chosen colour for this outfit , which catches a passers by attention. The grey top and grey jeans adds variation to the outfit and is a colour that well present itself this autumn/winter 2012. Graciously finished with a vintage touch, mickey mouse pops up again in this piece in the form of a comic strip bag and last but not least a pair of plum converses which creates a comfortable clash.
This student is wearing an indigo lace top with a floral design, thus combining two of the latest designs features in catwalks. Which is found in Elie Saab's and Valentino's Fall 2012 couture line; Lace, dark colours and floral patterns. This piece is casually completed with denim jeans to go with the indigo top and handsomely clashed with a subtle cream shoulder bag and black sneakers.
An outfit doesn't look as good if your not comfortable, which is more than I can say for this student. She wears a a grey jumper with black freckled detail, which makes the design look less dull. Kinda similar to the dress design from Chanel's Fall 2012 couture line.But knit wear is one of the many looks for this autumn, she continues to take advantage of this trend by adding a black crochet knitted skirt produces a compromise to the clothing. Finally finishing it off military style with black lace-up leather boots and khaki shoulder bag.
Again black is a reoccurring colour in this entry but simple seems to come in handy when it comes to dressing yourself. Block colours which was a wholesome trend during this summer is still crawling its way back into autumn. Red and black was a duo that influenced Ulyana Sergeenko's Fall 2012 couture line, seems to be the best way to go this season. Both sexy but very sophisticated. Our student displays a black long-sleeve shirt , fastened with gold buttons accompanied with red jeans fastened with a black belt. Then of course concludes with black shoes with laces and silver studs and a black leather backpack.
Geek is the new chic! This statement is furthermore supported by this student and makes going back to school more fashionable. We start with a white collar accessorized with a gold chain, which creates a geeky look. Then composed with a mint green sweater for the main body and clashed with grey stonewashed jeggings. Finally completed with (A much favored trend for this academic term ) black hi tops and a floral print bag.
