The enchanting Keira Knightley was on the red carpet today in my favourite country for the premier of her latest film “A Dangerous Method” she arrived on the red carpet looking absolutely stunning, picture perfect in the face and dramatic in the Valentino Gold embellished dress.

The British actress took to the red carpet in a Valentino Fall 2011 dress which had the perfect amount of drama for the beautiful city of Venice.

The gown was carefully embroiled with gold and layered with tulle for a very theatrical effect. Long sleeved with mesh for an almost invisible appearance against her porcelain skin.

Her Make up complimented the simple yet dramatic look of the dress with the favourited smokey eye effect and a matt red lipstick.

Her eye shadow has of red but its clear she wanted a soft appearance in the face alongside her central parting hair.

The 26 year old has so far had mixed reviews about the film but we will have to wait and see as the film moves to Toronto next week.

The outfit was very simple she clearly did not want to show too much opulence as she choose not to wear any jewellery or diamonds but perhaps it is to keep focus on the outstanding dress..

Who knows!

She could have at least grabbed a bag!?!

How super cool and exciting to be spotted out shopping on the streets of London in the same rain mack coat- to be fair there could have been a lot worse of a person to match than Pippa Middleton.

The Aussie Singer Kylie Minogue was captured out in London on Tuesday in a black and khaki rimmed trench coat by Fay Metropolitan Folie. The cute contrasting coat retails at £800 and has already sold out since the pictures emerged online.

Everyone appears to be getting ready for autumn and in doing so we have noticed that the “hot sister of the princess” affect still has not worn off! and people are still inspired by her fashion today.

Despite plummiting tempretures in London Pippa supports a dress, bare legs with ballerina pumps and glasses for a very demour chic look whilst Kylie opts for the very “london” look in a pair of black skinny jeans and a cute black bag!

The ladies looked lovely!

Last night was a huge burst of knowledge and information into the world that came tumbling out by a simple gesture made by the Queen Bee- Beyonce!

She took to the stage performing a mega watt performance that outshone Gaga dressed in drag as a man.

 

The rumours and speculation that had continued to dominate throughout the course of the singers career has finally been confirmed as the ex Destiny’s Child star unbuttoned her D&G jacket to reveal a bump!

That’s right! Beyonce is Pregnant and by the size of the bump she is already a bit of the way along.

She revealed the bump in a typical dramatic steal-the-show theatrical way with Bey randomly dropping the mic turning to the side to strike a pose and rubbing the growing stomach-till she finally burst out laughing- In True Diva style

She was interviewed by Pierce Morgan a few weeks back and he questioned her about when she would potentially taking a break to have a child and she responded with a simple “only God knows” but clearly she knew as well!

She dazzled the stage in a striking purple jacket and black pant trousers which can be seen to have been taken from the collection of D&G 2011 Menswear so it was not only Gaga that went for the androgynous look that night!

Beyonce will turn 30 in September so clearly everything has been calculated to the nearest date and she will be a proud mum in 7 months time in time for a nice Spring Baby!

Jay-z and Beyonce have been married for 3 years and this will be the couples first baby.

The outfit can be seen here on the run way last year- and it is also  from the same collection that Rihanna wore on the cover of Glamour magazine last month– (you can view that here) .

The hottest member to join x factor judges stepped out on the red carpet for the press conference in preparation for the new series in Cineworld in the 02 arena on the today on the 17th August 2011

Kelly Rowland versace dress 2011 x factor

She posed for photos in the latest Versace Fall 2011 dress- the black and green dress paired with some Giuseppe Zanotti wedges very sexy.

She added accessories of a multicoloured nail varnish and a gold metallic cuff and simple dainty earrings.

She beautifully had her hair feathered with some low cut bangs.

We loved her matching make up of green under eye liner, long lash inserts black top eye liner and pink and purple eye shadow.

We recommend the Mac Eye Kohl which is a great soft on easy to use liner which leaves a rich colour and silky-smooth matte and pearl finish.

The UK version of the X factor starts on Saturday 20th August at 8pm on ITV.

The X factor has a new set of judges from the young Tulisa from N Dubz aiming to attarct a younger audience into the demographics, Gary Barlow for the olders and the old Louis Walsh for the traditional viewers of ITV music live shows.

Everyone’s looking to see how the show will fair this new season without “The Simon!” My guess is ratings won’t be as high- the show is over done and we have had enough!

But its still great to see the fashion and what they have to wear!

Rihanna was out this week in her home of Barbados enjoying the sun and the beach in her tiny weeny bikini.

The Island singer showed her curves and the reason she has become the new underwear model to Calvin Klein, however this was not the bikini- this one has sold out in a few days since the princess put it on.

No Doubt- Rihanna has achieved this.

She happily enjoyed her time on the beach sun bathing riding jet skies and having a laugh with her mates unaware of the cameras. She is currently on her loud tour which has been classed as incredibly racy.

We love the fact she has kept her slim yet curvy figure without giving into pressures of the industry..

The Bikini is currently sold out but be sure to check out Mikohswimwear to purchase your own of the bikini.

The bikini has a rep of under $200 for both the bottoms and strapless top- not too bad!

Not too keen on the blonde hair change- she does remind me a lot of Beyonce– don’t you think?

Beyonce was spotted this past week leaving her black SUV in New York wearing a rather colourful couture looking number which we managed to find for a mere $24.00, yes that’s right! $24.00.

Beyonce nyc block colourful dress one shoulder

Minus the shoes, the Run the world singer hit the streets in New York in this lush affordable asymmetrical one shoulder number.

The dress can be found on Love Couture– which she chose to match or rather, up-market the outfit with a pair of Black shiny Louboutins and Black toe nail varnish!

It is awesome to see a star of such high calibre still rocking the $24.00 outfits!

The true appeal is turning a $50 outfit into something that looks like a million bucks! and Bey as usual- turns it out!

Her oversized dark sunglasses alongside her large hoop earings give her a sun sea and San Tropez look which works well and can just as equally be achieved.

These D&G DG4101 tiger print framed glasses rrp $200.00 give Beyonce’s frames a run for thier money!

Glamour Model and mother of 3 Katie Price has been in recent news for the launch of her latest collection- the business mogul created the brand back in February of this year naming her clothing line Day 22.

The 33 year old drama queen featured in the debut of the new collection wearing a uber tight leopard skin dress that did not hug her body in the right way!

She minced down the aisle with blond hair and black heels posing for pictures- opting for more of a tighter outfit in comparison to her other models whom had more of a causal relaxed attire of tracksuits and large jumpers.

She named the latest collection SS12. The launch was solely open for trade buyers only and she even stopped by to give a Q&A with the audience and happily left tweeting she was off to gets some Mcdonalds with her kids. (Sweet!)

Q&A

 

The outfits are colourful, girly and fun.

Not for the majority of the girls in the mass media but pretty confidant Katie’s followers will be wearing her line.

 

 

DAY 22 KATIE PRICE

At Q&A she claimed the name was created due to the fact new items from glasses, bags, shoes will be released on the 22nd of each month! Quirky business Idea which therefore means girls should keep coming back to the shop periodically every month! AWESOME for business!

The magazine also features her in a capped cuff green polka Dot dress by Marc Jacobs– with a sharp black top hat and vibrant curly red locks.

The dress is something similar to what Beyonce wore a few months ago- the outfit admittedly looks better on Riri- but the green and red Dot combo is an alternative look-
