"Diva Fest"
DATE: Monday 19th Dec

Soulful voices, Funky Fashion and Music absolute combustion of some of the industries best talents both new and old all under one roof, with a tribute to the late Amy Winehouse 2011 draws close with one of th hottest events of the year.

Off the runway Jennifer Hudson wears Francesco Scognamiglio's Fall 2011 collection

Jennifer's weight loss has caused much a stir this 2011 and looking like she has no interest in slowing down any time soon the pounds continue to just fall off.
Take a look at her new body...Do you think she's gone a little too far or do you love the new look?

Personally I think it's a dress size too far...I absolutely loved Jennifer at the Oscars her propitious were healthy, I'm concerned that now this has spiralled into an unhealthy obsession. #GULP Hope not, but as long as she's healthy and happy I suppose it's no obes business #TeamHudson

Best dressed of the night for me had to be my personal favourite, The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul Miss Mary J Blige.

This 2011 has seen the release of her 10th studio album and she's taken it back to the beginning, my ultimate favourite album ever "My Life" revisted; "My Life...The Journey Continues" My ultimate diva of my generation...LOVE IT!!

But with best dressed must come a worst dressed! I couldn't actually choose there were that many fashion faux pas so I'll leave that to you. Mob wives star looks like she's been under the hammer never mind the knife (I'll probably wake up with a horses head in my bed for that one), Eryka Badu looking like she came to rob the place, and sorry I know #TeamUK should stick together but for me Jessie J went from sone kind of deep dark ocean mermaid sea creature to an urban "Avatar". It saddens me for #TeamUK to cross the pond and let the side down so badly! #FAIL

Speaking of #TeamUK my Gurl Marsha Ambrosius looked on trend in wine body con dress, black faux fur and suede black platform stilletoe court shoe. I will be styling this lady 2012 watch this space!

Rock the #TrendOfDaDay Each day of the week with different flavour in your own way!

Okay my Fashion Bloggettes I know we have a lot of “trending” to catch up on since I’ve been up and down the UK getting you exclusive fashion goss! So do not fear I have not neglected you, Seems like for ever since I have trended and the #TrendOfTheDay has a new snazzy look…been trending with my new iPad so sit back and fill your appetites as I unleash Maniac Mustard!!

This look is great and an amazing tone for this time of year. As the leaves on the trees turn golden and crisp our wardrobes reflect the seasonal adjustment.
I wore my skater style mustard dress with sweetheart neck line. This burst of sunshine is strong and vibrant and looks great against tan and golden bronzes.

Worn smart casually with a mustard pashmina, great for transforming from day to evening wear.
The length is safe but worn with a high stiletto heal can give that cheeky flavour to the outfit. I preferred to wear this look without tights but tan gloss light denier’s would work well.
Neck scarf is optional, I chose to wear a silk, golden mustard neck tie giving this trend a European feel.
Minimal Jewellery and an up do completed with a large bun which has been a fave look for me this season, enable the outfit to stand out demanding full attention.

 Make up can be enhanced with embellishers and seasonal bronze pallets, deep terracotta blush applied in a linear  fashion with a deep gold highlighter and matt brown low lighter to contour. 

Eyebrows kept sharp, heavy with the brow shapers and highlighted strongly under brow bone. Lids can be left naked with a dramatic liquid eye liner effect lower lid thick yellow gold liners.
Here however I used a tiny bit of black shadow in the creases of my socket to soften and shape the eye.

Try your own Manic Mustard look, its fun, its vibrant and you can go crazy on the deeper shades of yellows and gold’s.

Plus some exclusive footage after the Award show footage…Is Dappy really the rebellious tearaway he’s portrayed as on TV or a sweet, respectable trendy Gentleman…Hit play and make your decision.

Glasgow was definitely invaded by starts as I entered the lobby of the Prestigious Crown Plaza and checked in something told me that with Tinchy at the bar to my left and Trevor Nelson on the Landing this was definitely going to be a night Scotland or me would not forget.

The SKJA team were front row all the Red Carpet Action, Previewing a taste the Exclusive Celebrity BlaQDejour Spring Summer 2012 range.

A Dapper Dappy in his Blue Sophisticated suit and Mr “Reggae Reggae”, Levi Roots himself definitely still knows how to shake a leg or two, his moves are as hott as his Jerk!

"As white as Couture"
Location: Paris
Date: Tues 4th & Weds 5th Oct

The sun has set on Spring/Summer 2012 fashion weeks. Luxury and art was abound during this week of fashion in Paris and blossomed in the most decadent and pomp infused ways. Where else would you come across an all white carousel spinning with Louis Vuitton models?

A fantastic subversive fairytale land spun out of control at the Louis Vuitton Spring '12 show. Designer Marc Jacobs' constructed an enormous white carousel filled with models and modern edgy spring looks. The cheeky collection featured chilly pastel colours, motorcycle jackets, and, my personal favorite, laser-cut lace skirts veiled in silk cellophane.
A yellow and white laser-cut appliqué jacket dress displayed the fragile workmanship of the brand and Jacobs' commitment to excellence. This will surely be the jacket of spring.

Leave it to Marc Jacobs to close Paris Fashion Week with a triumphant carousel fantasyland BANG of a show for Louis Vuitton that had everyone speculating even more about his rumored move to the house of Christian Dior. If there's anyone in fashion right now who puts on a Killer Show (we're talking full-on theatrics, as also evidenced at New York Fashion Week), it's Mr. Jacobs, the reigning king of modern luxury. His only peer in this department currently is Karl Lagerfeld, who also creates spectacular fashion week shows of the more classic luxury variety at Chanel, followed closely by Diors, John Galliano.

Models hopped off their horses one by one to saunter past a celeb-packed front row that included Olivia Wilde, Nicole Richie, and Alexa Chung, all perfect muses for Louis Vuitton Spring 2012.

The collection felt like a whimsical Easter parade of frothy femininity and included fuller knee-skirts topped with moto-style jackets that had exaggerated collars. Rounding out the accessories were matching-hued handbags (obvs, this is Louis!) and pointy pumps tipped in silver that are officially on our most wanted list.

Daisies were a popular motif and color seemed to bleed into the light fabrics. All of the models wore elegant top knots swept back by white headbands, which makes this, truly, the year of the bun. Oh, and closing the show? Kate Moss, of course, a vision in white, feathered daisy elegance. Overall, there was a whole Umbrellas of Cherbourg vibe that has us wondering if this really is going to be Marc's swan song for the label. If it is, he's definitely left us with something to remember him for, hands down the crème de la crème of runway shows this fashion week.

The biggest catwalk ever known to man...a colossal runway show definitely a privilege to be sat front row at, to witness such innovation 1st hand. As the Chanel models merged from a mammoth bubble which was lined with other bubbles.  Its as if you were in an under the sea world which was Karl Lagerfeld's vision.
A continuation of the Louis Vuitton pastel pallet, this video is also a must watch!


Ms Alexa Chung the Tv presenter turned trend icon sauntered across the front Row of the Spring Summer 2012 Chanel collection looking very simplistic sporting the miss match Trend with a casual black Chanel bag, grey dolly loose fit tunic dress and nude low heal shoes. I'd of definitely opted for a higher heel with this look.

Hollywood actress Uma Thurman also flew to Paris for the show. Looking quite Europen with tweed long blazer jacket and 50's reminiscent style pinnyform dress.
