Victoria Beckham once again wowed the New York fashion crowd with her Spring/Summer 2013 collection.
The singer, come designer has earned herself a place in the fashion world thanks to previous years designs – most notably peplum style structured dresses, which are well made and usually sell out very quickly.
And this season her collection didn’t disappoint with the designer moving to introduce separates including box skirts and cropped jackets into her range.
Dresses were relaxed with A-line shapes and floral patterns, while others gave a hint to VB’s statement structured style. Pastel colours and creams were also a present feature on jackets and shift dresses making this collection more casual.
Hollywood’s elite stepped out last night to celebrate the Costume Institute Benefit Gala at the Metropolitan Museum.
Sporting the big, almost flamboyant frocks, were Beyonce, who went for a sheer black lace number with a blue feathered train, and Florence Welch who went for a three tiered sequined dress. They were joined with this trend by Scarlett Johansson who went for a pale pink sequined bodice and netted skirt.
Going for a simple white frock were Ashley Greene and Amy Adams, while Cameron Diaz went for a slinky silver number.
However our best dressed ladies of the evening had to be Alexa Chung, who went for a leather frock over a secretary style blouse, Rihanna who opted for a slinky black animal print dress, and Gwyneth Paltrow who went for a short silver futuristic number.

Celebrities turned up in their kookiest outfits for Nickelodeon’s 25th Annual Kids Choice Awards. Katy Perry kept her trademark wacky look with a short lime green skirt and crop top, while Selena Gomez followed this trend in a sequined mini dress and contrasting bralet.
Going for a safer option was Kelly Osbourne who went for a black 50s frock, and Emma Stone who also played it cool in a cream skater skirt dress.
In the not so best dressed corner was Heidi Klum who looked mismatched with her not so flattering bodycon dress and thigh high boots, and Ashley Tisdale who went for a strapless red dress that did nothing to flatter that figure.
Perhaps they should have taken a leaf out of the fashion book of Kristen Stewart who shone in a blue lace dress.

We heart London Fashion Week and can’t get enough of all the styles. And the best bit for us is how different each designer and look can be.
This weekend was just one example with Matthew Williamson and Pam Hogg both showing off their ranges for AW 2012.
At Matthew Williamson styles were – dare we say it- safe but also reflective of the designers’ style.
Shift dresses with embellished necklines and in a range of patterned, luxe and chiffon fabrics marched down the catwalk, while a red lace and feather dress gave a nod to the ballroom dance theme. Long chiffon dresses and classic daytime khaki trousers and preppy blouses completed the look.
Over at Pam Hogg the designer displayed her trademark fetish PVC fabrics, which formed bodices with sheer panels as well as featuring in thigh high boots and on military style jackets.
Latex and metallic fabrics moulded into long catsuits also gave a nod to the futuristic trend, while boning, bows, pvc and sheer fabrics gave the traditional Victorian bonnet a structured modern twist.
However, the highlight of the show for us was the Russian dollesque frock and hat outfit shown off on the catwalk by Jamie Winstone. We want….

The fashion, music and acting world was left distraught over the weekend with news that singer Whitney Houston had been found dead in her hotel room.
The 48 year old was found in her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel by one of her entourage a Beverly Hills Police Lieutenant told American magazine People.
Despite attempts by the emergency services to resuscitate her, Whitney was pronounced dead at the scene, although there is currently no information on what caused her death.
Both the Grammy and BAFTA awards paid tribute to the talented star who not only created some great hits and films but also made a mark on the fashion world.
RIP Whitney. You’ll be missed.

The ‘Hold It Against Me’ singer threw a joint engagement and 40th birthday party for her fiance Jason Trawick at the Chateau club in Las Vegas, spending money on Dom Perignon champagne and a chocolate fountain to adorn the room.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “Britney made sure there was plenty of Dom Perignon champagne flowing throughout the bash. She had a couple of glasses herself. She stayed until 4am when she and Jason returned to their 50th floor suite.”
Writing on twitter, Britney said: “Tonight was one of the most magical nights of my life. Such an amazing time with my new fiance and our closest friends and family. Blessed. (sic)”
Meanwhile, Neil Lane, the designer responsible for designing the engagement ring Jason gave to Britney has revealed he has been creating the piece of jewellery – which features one main diamond and 90 smaller gems on an eternity band – for some time while she has been touring the world.
He told People: “Jason is a romantic and when I asked him to tell me about Britney and what the ring would represent to them so I could find inspiration, his response was always the same – she is a princess.
“Texts came from all over the world, from Abu Dhabi to Mexico and I don’t know where else.”
Despite the ring being created when he was away, Jason was delighted with the final piece hen he went to pick it up from his store in Los Angeles.
Neil added: “Oh my god he loved it. The guy was so excited and nervous. At the end of the day, even with all the fame, he’s still a normal guy who was about to propose to the woman he loves.”

Rihanna may have taken the tube to her concert at the 02 but we’re sure she didn’t wear any of her stage attire on the way.
The singer looked hot in a crochet beaded bikini which she posed with alongside 50s style cars. She also gave a nod to the 80s with her neon pink shoe boots and bright yellow hoop earrings.
Also making an appearance was a short blue wet look mac, which showed off the singers booty, we’re sure there were no complaints from the males in the audience.
