London Fashion Week – The best of the Front Row

London Fashion Week is currently in full swing, and, once again, I’m a bit obsessed with what the ladies are wearing in the front row, as much as I love looking at the collections on the catwalk.

All the usual suspects are there, from Olivia Palermo, Alexa Chung, Millie Mackintosh and Cheryl…not actually sure what she’s called at the moment…were all looking suitably glamorous and stylish on the front rows, in a wide range of looks. Fashion Week brings real diversity in the styles you see on the front row, ranging from looks that are almost red carpet ready – think Millie Mackintosh, to casual jeans like those sported by Olivia and Alexa, who is surely the queen of dressing down in a way that is effortless, gorgeous and makes every other woman in the room look totally over-dressed.

So, who’s style have I been coverting this London Fashion week? My style crush Harley Viera Newton once again totally kills it, with a whole series of elegant, ladylike looks. I love the prim print she chose for the Burberry show which is covered up and looks just stunning. Another look I love is Suki Waterhouse chanelling the 1940s in pale pink floral. I also think Suki has the look of a 60s dolly bird so this is a beautiful departure for her and I adore it.

As someone who would literally live in dresses 24/7, there have been some rich pickings on display so far. I love the unusual printed dress worn by Bond Actress Naomi Harris, which, with its long sleeves, is just a great transitional piece. Another wow was Girls Aloud’s Nicola Roberts who chose a green shift style that contrasted beautifully with her hair and pale skin.

I have featured some of my favourite looks so far below. Whose style has caught your eye so far?

Millie Mackintosh Jewellery collection for Dorothy Perkins

She is probably my favourite style icon to emerge from ‘Made in Chelsea’, and now she is further venturing into the world of fashion with a jewellery collection for High Street favourite Dorothy Perkins. Millie Mackintosh continues her move away from the TV world with a gorgeous range of jewellery which she says draws inspiration from her family heirlooms (her family are the Mackinstosh family who invented Quality Street), and from vintage pieces that she has picked up on her travels. The range was launched at Dorothy Perkins this week and looks set to be an instant success.

Millie is an acknowledged lover of jewellery, she made many of the designer pieces from Zara Taylor Jewellery sell-outs after she was seen wearing them on Made in Chelsea. More recently, she has been the face of Follie Folli, another brand renowned for fabulous jewels. Now, with this collection, Millie has created a range that is both beautiful and stylish, but also super affordable.

The key pieces in the collection have to be the statement necklaces. Big and bold, these blingy pieces look super expensive, but the reality is the most expensive piece, the show stopping tear drop necklace, is £35, with most of the necklaces priced in the £20, making them super affordable. I love these necklaces as I think they can transform any look. A simple white t-shirt and jeans can be made ready for a night out with the addition of one of these, whilst one of my favourite current looks is to add a necklace to a classic shirt. Of course, for your Christmas party outfit, you could take your tired old little black dress (the one you pull out every Christmas, birthday or family party) add one of the statement necklaces, and totally update your outfit.

Celebrity get the look with Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Scherzinger and Susannah Reid

Whilst I’m soaking up some lovely sunny rays on my holidays in beautiful Menorca, I’ve left you with some of the great celebrity looks that have been making the magazines this month. And this one really is a mixed bag, with shoes from Dune, jewellery from Claudia Bradby and Zara Taylor London, dresses from Gorgeous Couture and Phase Eight, and a little bit of beach-wear, courtesy of the fabulous Lindsey Brown at Mya Blue Luxe, as seen on Jess Wright on ‘The Only Way is Marbs’ on Sunday.

There is also a fabulous get the celebrity look featuring one of my all time favourite actresses, the one and only Helen Mirren, who was snapped wearing what is now one of my favourite summer looks ever, white lace and pretty green and orange accents. I have created this look with some pieces from Boden and Clarks.

Finally, I have a great Aztec print jacket from M&S that is styled to summer perfection by Sam Faiers. This jacket just shows how far forward M&S have traveled in terms of style in recent times – can you ever imagine a TOWIE star from a few years ago admitting to anything other than M&S undies. No, me neither. But this piece is a fantastic wardrobe addition, and is also currently available at a special promotional price.

Enjoy the looks – let me know what catches your eye.
