Alexander McQueen
Alexander McQueen is an English fashion designer who has a brand that wears his very own name. McQueen was born as the son of a taxi driver in the East End of London. He started making dresses for his sisters at a very young age, knowing that Fashion design was a dream he was going to achieve to any price. Alexander even took his Masters degree in Fashion design at London's most prestigious fashion school, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. Alexander McQueen then continued with his dream and earned the title "enfant terrible" with his early runway collections. The designer has boutiques in New York, Los Angeles, Milan and Las Vegas.

This Week's Best Dressed Celebrities!

Monday 2:41 PM, 31/05/2010
8. AnnaLynne McCord looks like such a lady in this white tiered  Alice + Olivia dress! It lengthens her body and her back swept hair is stunning on her young skin. Well done AnnaLynne! 7. We thought the Sex and the City ladies were a bit blah on the red carpet this week for their premieres, but we did love Kim Cattrall's looks! She was sexy and elegant and glamorous and still managed to be age appropriate. What a lady! 6. Scarlett Johansson is Spring fresh in this floral dress and sid-curled hair, we also love the fresh and colourful makeup. This girl has a style that she sticks to and it works everytime! 5. Another lady who can do no wrong on the red carpet! Diane Kruger looking fantastic at a Hugo Boss party in a playsuit made from mens suiting fabric. Fabulous! Ooh and the wavey curl updo with the leopard print pumps are a fun touch! 4. Yay Sarah Jessica Parker finally came close to wowing us at the London premiere of Sex and the City 2 premiere, after a boring and safe week of fashion choices. She paid tribute to her friend, designer Alexander McQueen in this dark fairytale dress with the big headpiece. We liked! 3. Peaches Geldof has had a makeover! She is tanned and bronzed, her teeth and eyes look brighter and whiter and she is rocking this season's bronze metallic fashion trend. We love it! Especially the headpiece, but maybe she could go easier on the tan? 2. We think Scottish actress Karen Gillan looked amazing at the British Television Awards this past week! The bronzey colour of the dress suit and the flesh tone camisole work perfectly with her red hair and skin colour. What a gorgeous outfit! 1. Emma Roberts goes godess! This cut-out shoulder mini-dress was a total winner for us, especially with the metallic pumps and jewelled clutch and the subtle hair and makeup! Wow!
Fashionistas shined brightly in some of this season's sparkly, metallic and floral trends this week! Some of our favourites have to be Jennifer Love Hewitt, who is learning how to dress for her curves and Diane Kruger who knows how to make fashion chic and fun at the same time! See who was our number one look though!

Sarah Jessica Parker Loves Alexander McQueen!

Saturday 10:46 PM, 29/05/2010
As you saw yesterday Sex and the City 2 premiered in London the other night and Sarah Jessica Parker was ravishing in an extravagant Alexander McQueen hat and matching dress. Some of you may know that SJP was very close with the designer and yesterday she visited McQueen's offices in London, perhaps to return the hat?

SJP's Hat Steals The Spotlight at Sex and the City 2 UK!

Friday 1:11 PM, 28/05/2010
Cynthia Nixon Mind that hat Kristin! Kim Cattrall Jaime Winstone Kylie Minogue Emma Roberts Sarah Jessica Parker Emma Bunton Kristin Davis Mr Big! Mollie King Alexandra Burke
The Sex and the City 2 movie premiere in London last night and the ladies were definitely all glammed up for the occasion, especially Sarah Jessica Parker who wore an outfit with a huge headpiece to pay respect to Alexander McQueen her friend and Brit fashion designer who passed away recently. Although she looked fabulous, we kind of felt bad for her co-stars Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and especially Kristin Davis who posed next to SJP for photos and she had to keep twisting her head away from the huge hat to get in the picture! Oh and there were some hot British stars on the red carpet too, have a look below!

This Week's Worst Dressed Celebrities!

Sunday 5:13 PM, 14/03/2010
8. Zoe Saldana was trying way too hard to impress with her style at the Oscars! We loved the top of her gown, but the bottom was way too busy and messy! Less is sometimes a whole lot more on the red carpet Zoe! 7. Big suprise - not! Mariah Carey in just another too-tight dress! There was too much cleavage, too much leg and that piece of jewellery on her hip drew attention to all the wrong places on her body! 6. Swedish actress Malin Åkerman usually has simple style, but at Elton John's Oscars party she lost her way totally! We don't get the white lace table cloth skirt with the black lingerie-looking top. Her hairdo did nothing for her either. What a shocker! 5. Patricia Clarkson wore this unflattering dress to the Vanity Fair party this week. Stripes that go wider at the hip area are not a good idea for any body - not even skinny Hollywood stars! 4. Salma Hayek was lucky enough to be one of the first people to be seen in a dress from Alexander Mcqueen's last collection on the red carpet. We understand that she was making a statement, but even though we love the rich pattern on the fabric. The cut of the dress is more for runway than the red carpet! Way too edgy for Salma's style! 3. Beth Ditto love to make big bold statements with fashion and we respect that, but that doesn't mean we have to say we love it! She wore this big green patterned dress to a John Galliano showing at Paris Fashion Week and we really didn't love think it did anything to flatter her! 2. Whoops another wardrobe malfunction this week! This time it was Maggie Gyllenhaal who couldn't get her flapper dress to stay up! Not so sexy, more embarrassing! 1. Lindsay Lohan's outfits this week at Paris Fashion Week were definitely hit and miss and this one was a total miss for us!  She has a way of making a luxury fur coat look, ummm! The fact that she is almost popping out the top of that dress isn't helping either!
Something strange happens to many fashion-loving stars at huge events like The Oscars and Paris Fashion Week - they loose all sense of style! We don't know why, but it feels like everyone is trying so hard to be different and have a "wow" fashion moment on the red carpet, that often it turns into an "Oh NO" moment! Take a look.
