Show Review: Philipp Plein Fall 2014

While many designers stateside are opting for off-site venues for their runway shows because of the high costs to present at Lincoln Center, some in Milan are having no such problem: going for excess as the fashionable city has long been known to do. Philipp Plein is one such designer upping the ante when it comes to putting on his catwalk presentations, having hired songstress Rita Ora to perform before sending Naomi Campbell out in his first look for his Fall 2014 collection.

Queen Mother Naomi’s first look? A black fox fur collar suede coat embellished with Swarovski crystals layered over skin-tight leather pants which were adorned by a large belt buckle, anchored with a pair of studded boots. The theme “urban cowgirls” couldn’t have been any clearer.

Red and black tartan continued the Western theme on sexy lace-trim slipdresses, ruffle mini skirts, pointed-toe booties, and top-handle totes, given a tough edge with black leather.

Denim was given a glamorous and glitzy spin with beaded detailing and studs. Plein showed us all how to make the classic luxe when pairing it with fur coats, sequin blouses, shimmering crossbody bags, and adorned booties.

There’s no doubt that the young and stylish set including Rita Ora, Nicki Minaj, and Lady Gaga will gravitate toward the collection’s designs while out and about at fashionable parties and quite possibly onstage. A star cutout tulle LBD with lace detailing can definitely work for the red carpet, while the selection of lace-up leather pants might be just the thing for a concert with a crop top.

On the Scene: The 2014 BRIT Awards

Ready for the next awards show? The 2014 BRIT Awards went down tonight in London with a slew of musicians and models in attendance. The looks varied from bright and sultry to menswear-inspired, with this season’s hottest trends being captured at every turn.

Check out the night’s most memorable looks:

Rita Ora and Calvin Harris are an exceptional-looking couple, thus I was happy to see them walk the red carpet together! Rita’s neon yellow Prada gown was mesmerizing.

Pharrell Williams and his wife Helen Lasichanh were suited up yet again this week. Hot, though I would’ve loved to see Helen smile: I mean Pharrell is your husband!

Rebecca Ferguson served curves in a white mesh inset dress and bold accoutrements. Work Rebecca!

I always enjoy a style moment from Tinie Tempah and he did not disappoint in cream and black tones.

It’s been awhile since I’ve seen Nicole Scherzinger out and about! I liked the way her gold studded Giuseppe Zanotti harness uplifted her cropped leather bustier top and trousers.

Iggy Azalea pared down her hair and makeup to let her fiery red Elie Saab gown with sheer insets play centerstage. She looked fab no?

I loved Jessie J’s Julien Macdonald jumpsuit, but the lilac lipstick wasn’t working for me. I do commend her on being fashion-forward though!

I loved the texture cutie Marvin Humes added to a simple black suit.

Neon Jungle always has the best hair! The edgy girl group made a statement in a slew of trends including a sultry bustier top, statement necklaces, sheer insets, and more.

Songstress Lianne La Havas gave some pizazz to a sheer off-the-shoulder dress with bold accessories.

Laura Mvula showed off her enviable stems in a waterfall hem number with tulle ruffle trim.

Aluna Francis of AlunaGeorge was pretty in pink in a sheer blouse, bustier crop top, and asymmetrical hem skirt from Antonio Berardi.

I think it’s accurate to say that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley slayed on the red carpet in a zebra stripe sequin mini dress with bow detailing from Saint Laurent’s Spring 2014 collection. Hot!

Ellie Goulding opted for princess chic in a Vivienne Westwood ball gown. I’m usually a sucker for Ellie’s style choices, but this wasn’t my cup of tea.

Lily Allen’s two-tone hair and sequin gown were winners for the night in my book!

Daisy Lowe showed some thigh in a Sister by Sibling Fall 2014 gown that channeled dark romance.

Songstress Pixie Lott’s DKNY white halter gown with a thigh-high slit was simple and chic no?

Sisters Dannii and Kylie Minogue looked fab in fun yet sexy spins on the LBD.

Normally, I’m on board with Myleene Klass’s looks, but I’m unsure of what to make of her cutout Mark Fast dress here.

One Direction was there! Harry’s hair slicked back…the verdict is still out on that.

Which ensemble caught your eye for the night?
